RBG Street Scholar On The Purpose Of Education: Where Do We Go From Here ?



The main goal of this school is not mastery over oppression. Such a goal, even if accomplished to its fullest extent, would only land Afrikan people in a vacuum. Rather, the preeminent goal of the RBG Communivrsity’s core curriculum is self-mastery by way of Afrikan-centered cultural transformation for the purpose of securing black power. Nonetheless, this goal mandates the active neutralization of all oppressive yokes within and without the afrikan self and collective. Given that we all are decedents of a people that were taken through the European’s evil genius three step process of deracination, i.E. Deafrikanization, dehumanization and inferiortization, the individual search for security under our present condition and the quest for personal harmony and private success at the cost of betraying our collective aspirations for self-determination requires little courage, vision or risk. Such efforts accept the social order (disorder) as immutable. But, in order for Afrikan people to be able to defend, define and develop in our own image and interest; a new courage, new vision, new consciousness, commitment and conduct is required. The dehumanizing enemy without must be neutralized—at least psycho-culturally and socio-materially,just as the enemy within must be ejected. Neither can occur without serious study and work through our own Afrikan eyes and organized technologically sophisticated independent institutional development. Both entail risking a social, political, economic, educational and spiritual crisis; and even physical death. For them and only then can a new Afrikan world union be established?
