As I sit back and look at the all the calamity in the world broadcasted by the news media, that paints a picture of serious doom and gloom. My soul does wonder how I got over. It comes to me that the ancestors knowledgeable of Kamit/Kemet helped me a lot but why? My ancestors remind me that when I was growing up during the crack cocaine 1980s, that it was hard to find things that were positive and uplifting.It was the rap of Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest, Poor Righteous Teachers, Gangstarr, DeLa Soul, Black Sheep, Public Enemy, KRS-1 & BDP, Rakim & Erik B, Brand Nubians and many others that got the word out about Afrocentrism, and inspired me to read about Martin L. King and Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik Shabazz), Steve Biko, Nelson Mandela, Miriam Mekeba and countless other activists. It was the voices of the ancestors speaking through the youth that helped make a way when all else seemed nearly impossible to begin my journey on the Kamitic/Kemetic path.
You see Kamit/Kemet is the source of inspiration for a lot of people. One look at the pyramids, sphinx and other ancient edifices can easily lead the onlooker to fantasizing and drifting to a far away ancient time. But, when you are akin biologically and/or culturally to the Kamitic/Kemetic people and their way of life. It takes on a whole new meaning. Kamit/Kemet becomes more than a source of inspiration but a guiding model, which is why it is not necessary for those who are biologically and culturally akin to the Kamitic/Kemetic people to reconstruct and recreate what was done thousands of years ago. All we need to do is tap back into our cultural way of living.
