African Philosophy of Transcendence: The Teachings of the African Desert Flower
By Mocholoko Dr. Zulumathabo Zulu
This informs you of the lecture African Philosophy of Transcendence: The Teachings of the African Desert Flower as my topic for Tuesday November 10, 2020. I will be addressing a Brazilian audience of the African Diaspora, thanks to the Honourable Princess Tshepi Motloung of Batlokwa Royal House who is hosting this event.
This topic is intended to recharge the African spiritual batteries; to boost the morale of Batho Ba Thari / Abantu Bembeleko / The People of the Melanin and to showcase our authentic; pre-colonial and pre-slavery original African philosophy that has enabled our unconquerable forbearswho have defeated the most genocidal; most brutal and most cruel forms of oppression ubder the sun.
In this lecture we draw from the sacrosanct philosophical principles of those who have gone before us to retake our inalienable role as the unbought and unsold architects of destiny and to vibrate as we were intended to vibrate in accordance with cosmic resonance. In this way, to ensure that the African Motherland and the African Diaspora are free from miseducation; free from poverty; free from pestilence; free from conflict and free from immorality and to rise and to prosper through an African cultural revolution for the survival benefit of the future generations as it was meant to be.
The Melanin must take a page from the desert flower Mponeng. La lucha debe continuar! (The struggle must continue); Rendirse no es una opcion! (Surrender is not an option); Nunca jamas! (Never never); El destino es nuestro! (The destiny is ours). Tsamaroko! Ezamathongo! (For the ancestors); Thokoza Makhosi! (High Veneration to the Ancestors).
