We discussed how history allows us to study anthropology – definitions of Self, Society, Global events and the responsibilities therein – from an African perspective.
Black Prophetic Fire Book:
Dr. Cornel West provides one of this day’s most enlightening analyses of black society and its role in recent history. We read the text, Black Prophetic Fire, and spent a semester reflecting on how today’s student – tomorrow’s leader – can reach in a muster up the sense of agency, the hereditary virtue of black prophetic energy, that is needed to finish the job of lifting modern society up to moral standards that were once known to wise ancients and that promise to once more enable sustainable multi-cultural living models that support a bright way forward.
Below are clips of the students speaking about current events in terms of the presence or lack of prophetic agency in select instances.

KPI hosts Commander Jim Jackson,
Aircraft Mission Commander, US Navy
Our students will query the African American Legacy in Aviation and Aerospace Aeronautics with Commander Jim Jackson of the Black Navy Admirals Organization.
Commander Jim Jackson has a story to tell about African American heroes. An authentic, inspiring, and compelling story about men and women in the Armed Services who through courage, guts, and tenacity, broke sound barriers and race barriers, flew in combat and in space, commanded ships and served as America’s highest ranking admirals, astronauts, and pilots. These heroes are African Americans. And their stories are remarkable because they bridged a great divide between what was… and what was possible—entering service branches and professions at a time when African Americans were virtually barred from participating.
