We still have in our midst a great pillar standing. He, (Dr. Ben) has written numerous books that have enlightened the minds of many, including white folks. He pioneered the first group tours to Egypt long before many of us were born and when it was unpopular in the black community to want anything to do with “going back to Africa”.
99% of Dr. Ben’s research and analysis, and preaching and teaching to anyone who would listen, was grossly underpaid and while in his younger years getting rich was not Dr. Ben’s priority, today he really, truly needs our financial support.
While 99% of the time Dr. Ben worked for us without want for himself, his tediously detailed research was 100% factual.
More so, today, while his books are still selling, Dr. Ben’s hard work is not credited to the degree that it should be. Dr. Ben deserves much more than just words of "thank you for what you have done for our community." He deserves much more! Dr. Ben is 92 years old and in serious need of financial contributions-- for medical bills, food and daily sustenance.
Please, please let’s quickly pitch in generous financial contributions and rush them payable to
Dr. Yosef A.A. Ben-Jochannan, c/o MEDINA, P.O. Box 290, Bronx, NY 10467-0290.
