Honoring Our Ancestral Obligations: 
7 Steps to Black Student Success
By Chike Akua

This is the book that is changing the way Black students see themselves see themselves, their history, their culture, their power, their potential and the world!

Dr. John Henrik Clarke, one of our most highly respected and highly regarded scholars, remarked that great African Empires, nations and civilizations were held together by two things: "honor and obligation."  To honor is to show deep respect. An obligation is a responsibility one has that must be fulfilled without question.  So, "Honoring Our Ancestral Obligations" means that we will show deep respect to our Ancestors by the way we live our lives and that we will fulfill our responsibilities with character, consciousness and commitment.  

This books covers topics such as Identity Restoration, Calling and Career Preparation, Economic Mobilization, Relationship Revolution and much, much more!
