“As human beings, our limitations rest only in our ignorance. We are ignorant
of who we are and what we can do. We have the need to gain consciousness(awareness) and
only in consciousness is our true human capacity open to us”.
(Dr. Na`im Akbar

Chains And Images Of Psychological Slavery 
)The
Reconnecting with Ancestral Knowledge 
study group was started for theexpress purpose of raising African consciousness. Elevating it to the point thatexpanded consciousness strengthens our; common values, communications, communalservice, confidence, group solidarity, trust, wealth generating capability andspiritual power.From the time of African captivity to even today, our level of consciousnessremains extremely low. Our consciousness has been shaped by those who controlthe inputs to our brain; what we see, what we hear, what we feel and what we taste.These external influences serve to fashion a set of beliefs that place value whereit should not be and are deficient in self-awareness. As a result, we internalizeinappropriate behavior patterns that compel us to serve the needs of others whileneglecting our own group development.These patterns are evidenced by views such as:
 
Attitude Towards Material Things
 
Believing White Ice is Colder
 
Attitude Towards Work
 
Susceptibility to Divide and Conquer
 
Collusion with the Competition
 
Seeking White Approval
 
Attitude Towards the FamilyIf the above does
n’t
clarify what we mean by inappropriate behavior patternsconsider the following; Africans in America give ninety-five (95) cents of everydollar they make to others, [1] allowing others to live deliciously, while they starve.Consequently, Africans in America are assailed with deplorable conditions, such as;lowest amount of wealth, highest unemployment, lowest income, highest crime rate,and fastest death rate.Our ancestors teach us that conditions result from actions, actions result fromthoughts and thoughts are a by-product of consciousness. Therefore, in order tochange our conditions, we must first change our thinking. We cannot change ourthinking unless, and until, we change our consciousness.
