What is being Conscious?

Consciousness is defined as “being awake and aware of one’s surrounding”. Speaking for myself and most of the population we have been in a perpetual state of the exact opposite or “asleep” for the better part of our existence in this country. Before beginning the introspective journey of seeking “consciousness”, the limits of my historical knowledge of Africans and their impact on the shaping of today’s world was confined to the bare minimum i was taught in a predominantly white public school curriculum, and an inherited religion that never spoke with the voice that was in my heart. After reading “The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley” and inspired by the introspection and spiritual growth that el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz experienced during his eventful life i began to look into other heroic and dynamic figures in  American and world history. Exhaustive study bordering on obsession lead to finding that I was not alone in my thirst for knowledge and understanding of the secrets and science buried within my melanin badge of honor. As we move through this physical plane called earth I hope that this tome will be a source of knowledge, understanding and empowerment for US as a nation.Thank you for your lending me your synapses for a few, live in POWER and Peace family. “However far the stream flows, it never forgets it’s source” -Yoruba proverb
