“The most powerful knowledge of ourselves that was taken away from us was the recognition that God is in each and every one of us.” – Na’im Akbar
In this clip from a classic Dr. Naim Akbar lecture he goes into “The Power of Self Knowledge”. He stresses how we have forgotten the “the tribal self” and have adopted the consciousness of those who oppress the melanated masses. Essentially, we have forgotten who and what we truly are. Dr. Naim Akbar’s lectures and books “have been enthusiastically hailed throughout the United States and on the five continents”. The University of Michigan graduate (B.A., M.A., and Ph.D in Psychology) will forever be catalogued in many curious melanated minds around the world as one of the premier afrocentric scholars that dedicated his life and studies to the empowerment of black people.
