aba Shango of SEHAH Youth and Fitness Center and his sons traveled to Mali, West Africa for two weeks, venturing into internal Africa for a first hand look and to carry the spirit of Sehah and the TrĂŠ to some of our brothers and sisters in that part of the world. TrĂŠ: Brother Shango, would you mind telling us a little about your trip? Brother Shango: Yes. We, Sundiata, Sentwali, Ojo,and myself traveled to Washington D.C. picked up my other son Jawanza and bused to New York, where we then caught a plane to West Africa. First, we landed in Burkino Faso, because of bad weather, and then after the weather cleared up, we went on to Casablanca, Morocco, where we laid over for a few hours and then flew on to Bamako, Mali, West Africa. he trip across the African Ocean, so know as the Atlantic Ocean, as about 7 hours. Interestingly nough, while on the plane we met bdulaye, a brother from Bamako, oming home after completing his niversity schooling in the United ates. He had actually finished his raduate work at the University of exas. He showed us to the hotel alibris which became our place f residence for the first few days. here at the hotel we would meet rother Ali who was to be our guide

and friend for the next ten days. TrĂŠ: Could you tell us the purpose of your trip and was it accomplished? Brother Shango: Yes. Although, as individuals we all had our separate reasons, as a group our purpose was: 1) A continuing Rite of Passage for all of us, especially for my younger sons, Ojo, Sundiata, and Sentwali. As you may already know, the over all theme of Sehah Youth & Fitness Center is “Rites To Passâ€?. We believe that all of us, especially our youth should go through and experience certain things (on purpose) in order to be well prepared for all things that life presents to us. Actually while on the trip my son Jawanza gave me a verbal thank you for some of the earlier rites to pass experiences I exposed him to some 20 years ago. I smiled and felt really good about the work I do. And I guess that’s what keeps me doing it. A crucial part of our Rites To Pass Program is

In 1820 in Shabeni in James Grey Jackson’s An Account of Timbuctoo and Hausa stated “The natives of the town of Timbuctoo may be computed at 40,000, exclusive of slaves and foreigners [..] The natives are all blacks: almost every stranger marries a female of the town, who are so beautiful that travelers often fall in love with them at first sight.�

and experience the world in order to be full citizens of the world and to know how to navigate through all types of situations. In addition, only a handful of African-American youth get a chance to travel the world. My work with Sehah and another international youth organizations insures this. 2) Travel to internal Africa was critical, because most travelers to Africa only visit the coastal countries and not internal, but we went inside. 3) We fulfilled our mission to reach and see the great & ancient city of Timbouctou where lies the ancient University of Sankore and some of the oldest Mosques in North Africa. 4) We traveled over some of the same roads traveled by the great Mansa Musa, we touched the soil and walked in the land of the great Mari Jata, Sundiata Keti,uniter of the Mali Empire, we sailed the Niger river (and I swam in it) 5) We visited Dogon land and sat in the presence of the brothers and sisters whose direct ancestors mapped the stars in the sky. 6) Being martial artists & developers of youth, it goes without saying we taught a few martial arts classes to the youth and trained with an indigenous African martial artist, witnessing a little Kupigana Ngumi from Mali.

Timbuktu (Koyra Chiini: Tumbutu; French: Tombouctou), formerly also spelled Timbuctoo, is a town in the West African nation of Mali situated 15 km (9.3 mi) north of the River Niger on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert. The town is the capital of the Timbuktu Region, one of the eight administrative regions of Mali.

“If the University of Sankore [...] had survived the ravages of foreign invasions, the academic and cultural history of Africa might have been different from what it is today.�

In its Golden Age, the town’s numerous Islamic scholars and extensive trading network made possible an important book trade: together with the campuses of the Sankore madrassah, an Islamic university, this established Timbuktu as a scholarly centre in Africa. Several notable historic writers, such as Shabeni and Leo Africanus have described Timbuktu. These stories fuelled speculation in Europe, where the city’s reputation shifted from being extremely rich to being mysterious. This reputation overshadows the town itself in modern times, to the point where it is best known as a metaphor for a distant or outlandish place.

african-americans represent over

Hundreds of thousands of manuscripts were collected in Timbuktu over the course of centuries: some were written in the town itself, others – including exclusive copies of the Qur’an for wealthy families- imported through the lively booktrade. Hidden in cellars or buried, hid between the mosque’s mud walls and safeguarded by their patrons, many of these manuscripts survived the city’s decline. They now form the collection of several libraries in Timbuktu, holding up to 700,000 manuscripts:

e has participated in National Black Caucuses, protested apartheid in South Africa, advocated for the release of a wrongfully convicted death row inmate, and the list goes on. Though his endeavors have spanned national and international issues, for Boney it has always been and will always be about the community first.

Straight Talk RVFTUJPOTXJUI +FX%PO#POFZ BY IYSHA BATTS, TexAS SouTHern unIverSITY

1

TrÊ: You have an extensive background in fighting injustices and supporting causes ( i.e Clarence Brandley, Apartheid in South Africa, etc) that would have otherwise held no direct implications for you, What would you say is the driving force behind such self-less commitments? Boney: I found it impossible to ignore human suffering‌ I have not been able to abide social injustice. It’s something about racism and social injustice that my spirit won’t abide so, I have not been able to be silent, be uninterested and unengaged when I’m aware of and confronted by human suffering, particularly, and social injustice.

2

TrÊ: With over four decades under your belt in civic engagement and political activism, what accomplishment are you most proud of and why? Boney: It has to be the participation in the collective effort to save a human life. The fact that a human being is alive today partly because of efforts that I and others made; it can’t be trivialized. That’s very, very meaningful.

3

TrÊ: What would you say is the force that drives you to continue to advocate for this community? Boney: I think it’s a spiritual force. It’s certainly not a material force because material gain was never a primary objective of mine and I’ve been willing to risk

4

There are some institutional and institutionalized inadequacies that I sense and see that hinder our collective development‌ I see individuals making

5

Boney: My father realized that the key to our regions competiveness is a highly educated well trained, skilled workforce. HCC is the critical key to Houston’s success.

The Leaders of Tomorrow Case Competition was established to increase student participation in LOTŽ Program activities, improve the student’s analytical and presentation skills, and increase interaction with other students in LOTŽ Programs across the country. Congratulations to the team and good luck as they represent Houston at the National Competition held at the NBMBAA Conference in Atlanta.

FORMER YATES STUDENT ELECTED SENIOR CLASS PRESIDENT OF MOREHOUSE COLLEGE While in high school, Yates Alumnus Jonathan Howard played on the Yates Football Team but his scholarship to Morehouse is not based on sports. It is based on academics. That’s an important point that he makes to students as he gives them advice on how to succeed in school. Howard tells students, “When I was playing football at Yates, there was a sign that hung over the door to our locker room that few paid attention to. By my senior year, I began to realize just how important the words were. The sign said, “The reason most people fail is because they put off what they want most for what they want right now.� Howard goes on to tell students, “Don’t say 'what I want most is to be a businessman but right now I want to let my pants sag, skip class, fight and talk 5IF&OTFNCMF] any kind of way', because that’s not how real 8IFOJUDPNFTUPUIF UIFBUSJDBM TUBHFUIJT5SnMBOENBS businessmen FRVBM'SPNNBJOTUSFB behave.
