About Wo'se Community
The Wo’se Community of The Sacred African Way was founded in 1980 as a spiritual institution devoted to the needs of African Americans. Our beliefs and practices have evolved over the years based on our study, experiences and unique mission. We believe the teachings of our elders and our ancestors that the Creator God created the universe and all life, and has placed in each of us a part of the Divine Spirit.
The primary source of inspiration and information from our Sacred African Way is the spiritual traditions of Ancient Kemet (which the Europeans call Egypt). Our Kemetic Ancestors were known by ancient scholars as the most spiritually profound and intellectually sound people of the ancient world. They created a theocracy – a civilization based on the understanding that all life is sacred and that all human endeavors (large or small, public or private) must proceed from that foundation. It was a civilization of great excellence and exceeding longevity whose great achievements were in the forefront of humanity’s struggle for civilization.
Many of our contemporary scholars (i.e. Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop, Dr. Theophile J. Obenga, Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Dr. Yosef Ben-Joachannan, Dr. Asa Hilliard III, Dr. Maulana Karenga, Dr. Charles Finch, etc.) have advised that the most liberating and empowering self-perception for African people requires that we study, understand and benefit from the profound knowledge of our ancient past. Ancient Kemet is the repository par excellence of that spiritual-intellectual legacy. We must open those books; let our hearts and minds be inspired and trained by that knowledge and not be duped by second-hand, euro-centric, materialistic, oppressive imitations.
