Our Elder Adduni was a consistent worker and was also a constant reader and collector of information. Our goal is to have her books and sewing collection sent to Adele - Nkwanta Ghana!

 

She cherished the work ethic of and believed that African people must build, create and sustain our future for generations to come. She studied Booker T. Washington.

 

I am reading one of the books that Elder Adunni left for us to read called, 'Economic Power - The Original Plan of Booker T. Washington, edited by Theora Richards.....

 

Theora quotes from Booker T. Washington's book, "Working With The Hands".

 

"Our pathway must be up through the soil, up through swamps, up through forests, up through streams and rocks, up through commerce, education, and religion! In my opinion, we cannot begin at the top to build a house.  If we try to do this, we shall reap in the end the fruits of our folly".

 

Booker T. Washington

The Door to REturn!

They Come Amongst us,
 
They come amongst us,
they are intense, they are bold,
they are unrelenting,
they are on fire.
They are intense with the truth,
they know the immediacy of our predicament.
 
They may seem brash,
but they are bold,
and bolder with the truth,
 
We are new age slaves,
who were once and still are,
Captive Afrikan Survivor Refugees,
thinking that we can find comfort in material enslavement.
 
Slaves of consumption, that were once the currency,
the objects of ruthless inhuman materialism,
selfishness, and ugliness,
and now consuming our own demise...
Trapped and captive and even trapping each other...
 
We would not know a Harriet Tubman,
if we saw her today,
nor would we know a Malcolm X,
or understand the messages beneath the bold face .....
A Harriet Tubman or a Malcolm X would seem strange or odd,
by not being complacent, not conforming, or consumed by an Ipod,
 
Not waiting for the next gadget or pacifier of lies...
Complacency does not understand "a driving force",
Many are afraid of it.. not wanting to wake up,
wanting to be drugged by things instead...
 
Some come between us and amongst us... 
Possessed with the truth.
On a mission to wake us up,
and to give our enemy hell.
Knowing fully well that we are on a battle ground.
Those bold spirits so fortunate to have never accepted
or wallowed in enslavement. 
ELDER ADUNNI OSHUPA TABASI WAS ONE OF THEM...
 
I must humble myself with humility,
and honor to have known a powerful force,
as her spirit moves on,
Elder Adunni Oshupa Tabasi.....

In the Spirit of Adunnism !

 <<<!!!>>> <<<!!!>>> <<<!!!>>> <<<!!!>>> <<<!!!>>> <<<!!!>>>

It is with Deep Regret that I even have to post the fact that Our Beloved Mother, Warrior Guide has become an Ancestor! It is our responsibility as a people to understand her life’s work and to continue it! As she would say “it is about the Future, it is about planning for those unborn and having babies, giving birth and building an environment conducive for US! We cannot continue down the road that we see that Others are planning for us “We Must Not Become a Homeless People! It is time for us in the true spirit of being Afrikan people wherever we are to build self-sufficient communities.”

 

Elder Adunni knew deeply and clearly and acted accordingly to the fact that we are in a fight for our very existence and for our future. She chose to duke-it out and that we have no time to waste in fighting for our existence. She fought on all fronts!

Elder Adunni Oshupa Tabasi was in born in Harlem on March 30, 1934. Her enslaved name was Evelyn Mildred Price. She legally changed her name to Adunni Oshupa Tabasi.  Her enstooled name was NuNu Afua Frie-Frie II. She made her transition on January 7, 2008. Her family and the Afrikan community are making arrangements for a Home Going Ceremony and for her remains to be sent to Kratchni Nkwanta, Ghana.  The village Kratchni Nkwanta means ‘Cross Roads of People’. Most of the plans so far are tentative. We will have another meeting today, Saturday 12th , to work on more details. The Home Going is tentatively scheduled for February 9, 2008 from 2 pm to 6 pm. The location has not been finalized. We want drummers, dancers, poets, all those that loved her to come out and show their love and commitment to help us ALL to move forward and finish her work which is really OUR work. It is going to take many life times to complete.
