HTP, Greetings to the Collective,
In consideration of the expanded domain names to include Africa Speaks I post the following:
Religious Sankofa Crusade 2
DATE: October 2-4, 2003
The Religious Sankofa Crusade 2, Alternative Healing will be held October 2-4 at the Community Family Life and Recreation Center at Lyon Park (off Morehead and Kent Street), in Durham, NC. The International Board of African Thinkers, Traditional Priests, Healers, and religions, Inc. and Calvary Ministries will bring to Durham, NC, a historic second meeting of some of the world's greatest thinkers, religious scholars, spiritual and alternative health experts.
For centuries Western religions have characterized African spiritual systems as "pagan" or" heathen" or "witchcraft" or devil worship". When one realizes the enormous debt the European western religions owe to their African predecessors, words such as "pagan" or "heathen" or "witchcraft" becomes diabolically sinister.
All in one location, the following religions will be presented and discussed by experts: ancient African Egyptian, African Traditional religions (i.e., Abosom, Orisha, Vodou, Zulu,) Hebrew/Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. You will learn more of WHAT you believe, and WHY you believe what you do. If you are a Christian, Muslim, Hebrew, or PtahRa (African traditional religion), to come to this historic crusade to see, hear, and meet the authors, healers, priests and priestesses. U
