From Prof. James Small:
Elder Bro. Bill Jones, the Co-founder Chairman of the First World Alliance Lecture Series made his transition to the ancestral realm while at St. Luke's Hospital in Harlem, NY, today, December 17, 2010.
The First World Alliance introduced millions of people to the works of Dr. Ben, Dr. John H. Clarke, Dr. Asa Hilliard III, Dr. Leonard Jeffries, Dr. Wade Noble, Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing and so many others.
Information on his home-going ceremony will be distributed at a later date.
I met brother Bill and Sister Khepha in 1976. It was because of them that I met Dr. Ben , professor Simmons, Brother Smalls, William X Randolph, Dr. Hilliard, Dr. Wilson and Dr. Clarke and others as a young man. I furthered my dream in becoming a teacher in the public school system in Poughkeepsie, NY and eventually became a superintendent of schools in Michigan and Kansas City, MO. I owe my career to the both of them and have dedicated my life in educating our people to the history of themselves because of what they have given. In all my travels since that time I have made it a point to duplicate what they have done for the benefit of our people and a tribute to what they have done for me....
The ancestors doors were opened to him I know.... The cubs will continue the battle and journey to raise the dead!
Thank you brother Bill and sister Khepha!
My love and commitment will never die because of you!
