    One Love to u, and all the Black people. Thank alot for the effort u have put ur’self for the education of fellow Black brothers and sisters, I salute u .

    I truly enjoyed the slides, and have indeed learned alot from this. I come from Namibia, and to tell u the truth the struggle continues for our fellow black people to really find a common goal for their independence, as I still feel not free as long as there is ore millions of my fellow black people still suffering in the whole world.

    Aluta Continua.

    ONE LOVE.

    You are truly an inspiration. I’ve always dreamed to create a school like this, of course I didnt have the education and talents you had. And to see your dream and hard work manifest into this is truly a blessing to our global community and our future.

    Peace Brother Camari!!
    My soul is pleased with your mission and goals to educate and guide our children to Afrikan consciousness. I am currently equiping myself to do Afrikan centered homeschooling for my daughter and my friends children. After viewing your website, I am evermore encouraged to do so. So inspired by you and I know the ancestors are pleased.

    Hotep!!

      Fanon said, “each generation [or person] must find its mission and either fulfill it or betray it.” After delaying it for awhile, I’m living my mission now. Hopefully, you are doing the same.

      Revolutionary Love,

      Samori Camara

    Htp brotha Samori,
    Meda ase for your commitment and devotion to the Afrikan family. It is such an inspiration to see brothas and sistas on a global scale that are ready to take on the responsibility of nation-rebuilding. I hope we can work together and share information and resources because we clearly have the same mission. I am in the process of beginning an Afrikan centered homeschooling collective here in Canada. For now though, i am educating my son at home. You can check out my page at http://umkhontowesizwe.wordpress.com/ Abibifahodie.
