For Black Africans living among the culturally and spiritually dead in the Babylon system, knowledge of self and love for the ancestors, customs, and thought process that sustained Our people for millennia increases, if not ensures, protection against the forces that have threatened Our collective success. Educational attainment and accolades mean little to nothing if not done in the interest of the Black African nation.

Ahadi Ture, a Kenyan-born app developer and activist, speaks to this character development process. His mobile app 4 the Culture connects and exposes Black Africans across the globe to information about prominent revolutionary figures, small businesses, and other resources relevant to the Black African experience. Since launching 4 the Culture, Ture, who’s lived in the D.C. metropolitan area and Baltimore for most of his life, has amassed the support of more than 60,000 Black Africans globally with the help of six employees with whom he’s formed a co-operative business arrangement.

On the August 17th edition of The AllEyesOnDC Show, which fell on the 131st anniversary of Marcus Mosiah Garvey’s birth, Ture explained his path to activism and, with host and founder Sam P.K. Collins, explored topics related to cultural growth, mass support among Black Africans, and the need for young people to embrace STEM. This show also included a selection from the Black Workers Center Chorus and an important announcement about We would shape Our collective political future.
