Association For The Study of Classical African Civilizaton Thirty-Fifth Annual Conference

ASCAC Holds Thirty Fifth Annual

Conference In  Philadelphia

                           Junious Ricardo Stanton

 

            The Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations held its thirty-fifth annual conference in Philadelphia at Community College of Philadelphia March 15-18. ASCAC as it is known is an organization dedicated to the recue, resurrection, reconstruction and restoration of African history and culture by researching and promoting the study of African contributions to the global human tapestry from antiquity to modern times. ASCAC is in the forefront of raising consciousness, challenging the distortions of African historiography and building means to apply their research and values to daily living. The theme of this year’s conference is:  Intellectual Warfare Against the Assault on African Humanity.

            The Mid Atlantic Region under the leadership of President Ron McCoy hosted the conference which featured daily plenary sessions followed by concurrent workshops and discussions centering on a myriad of topics. A small sample of the types of panel discussions and lectures: African Cosmology, The Maroon Tradition in the United States, Culture Vultures, The African Diaspora Tradition of Resistance, Nutrition, The AME Church’s First Hundred years: Historic Africanity and Counter Africanity at War, African Drumming, Is Hip Hop Pedagogy? Racial Justice Now, The Legacy of Nubian Women, Spiritual Development, The Importance of Recognizing and Honoring Young Children’s Physical Bodies and Physical Activities, Reexamining Multi-Culturalism, Using Afrofuturism and Philosophy to Imagine An Empowered Africa, Mdw Ntr, and many more. 

            The panelists and presenters were local and international people representing a wide variety of disciplines: education, spirituality, healing, social service organizations, creative and fine arts, law, research and scholarship. Long before the success of comic book superheroes like Blade and Black Panther, ASCAC members proudly wore African garb, they reveled being of African heritage, were staunch uncompromising advocates for the truth and they were/are committed to fashioning a vision of a resurrected Africa and African people. An on site African Marketplace featured book, educaton, clothing and accessory vendors from around the region and country.
