SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, VA. – When The Great Marcus Garvey was leaving America
under a deportation order in the nineteen twenties, he promised that he
would return. He said, “Look for me in the whirlwind.
“When times are rough, I shall return, wrapped in the Red, Black And
Green that you know so well.” Anyone who observes, or study the rise of
Baba Master Keidi Awadu may well feel a sense of Deja vue. If you’d like
to see what a UNIA Movement would look like in the 21st Century
Technological Information Age, go to www.livinginblack.com – but be
mindful just as Marcus Garvey could not put all of the UNIA programs and
systems in his newspaper, the Black World, the website is the internet
base of operations for Baba Master Keidi Awadu.
Not since the days of Marcus Garvey, himself, have anyone brought as many
of his different ideals and visions into manifestation for Black people
as have Master Baba Keidi Awadu.
In many ways Keidi Awadu has actually exceeded the expectations and
accomplishments of the Great Black Nationalist of the 20th century. This
strictly in the sense of Keidi Awadu mastery of Internet based
technology. He uses the internet to explode visions that Marcus Garvey
gifted to the world. Technology back in the 1920’s was like horse and
buggy measured to the possibility of what a SUV is to a 2010 family
Garvey had a vision of “Africans for the Africans: those at Home and
those Abroad.” Every generation of Garveyite since the death of the Great
Man, in London in 1941, have tried to work to reflect and project that
vision. In the years 2003 and 2004 Baba Master Keidi actually led a wave
of people that supported the establishment of three settlements of Black
people from America in Ghana, West Africa. And while there, he raised
enough money to upgrade the broadcasting capability of a University in
In 2009, The Conscious Rasta, as many remember him from his early days in
service to Black people – many still insist on affectionately calling him
by that branded trade name (he’s written no less than thirty books and
other publications under that name). But the man he calls “my Mentor,
Baba Khalifah” has unofficially awarded him the mastership. It is
expected that the title will be officially bestowed upon him during the
Spring Equinox when a delegation of members of LIB will come to visit The
Southeastern Ujima Region at The Khalifah Estate in Southampton County,
Virginia www.natturnertrail.com The place where the Kujichalia Village
will be established.
WORKING THE GARVEY PROGRAM
IN GHANA, WEST AFRICA
“Blacks should control the economic and body politic in all communities
where they are the resident majority.” Marcus Garvey
During 2003 and 2004, Baba Master Keidi spent a great deal of his time
traveling between America, Ghana and England. The travel and interval of
time opened up another of the visions of Marcus Garvey.
While many rightly associate Garvey with “The Back to Africa Movement,”
students of the “Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey” are mindful of
an equally, and perhaps a more practical and profound approach to the
liberation of African people. Garvey, besides saying “Africans for the
Africans….” Also said that, “Blacks should control the economic and body
politic in the communities where they are the resident majority.”
Whatever it was that peaked the intellect of Master Baba Keidi: the
logistical difficulties; the expense, the indoctrination of Black people
in White Supremacy, or whatever, controlling the space where Black people
live in America is what he has returned to, in Force over the past six
month, or so. While he has certainly not abandoned the ideal of Africa
for the Africans, Keidi has embraced wholeheartedly the ideal of
empowering Black people in America.
In a carefully thought out plan of action, Keidi have initiated a system
of action that will bring our people out of the “killing urban zones of
America,” into Kujichalia Villages that LIB is presently laying the
groundwork to build.
The first of the Villages will be on the land that is documented to be
part of the Slave Plantation where one of the most important attempts to
free Black people in history was conceived, planned and carried out. That
is the Revolt of Nat Turner back in 1831.
