Maulana Karenga

An Intellectual Portrait

BY MOLEFI KETE ASANTE

In this book, the most prolific contemporary African American scholar and cultural theorist Molefi Kete Asante leads the reader on an informative journey through the mind of Maulana Karenga, one of the key cultural thinkers of our time. Not only is Karenga the creator of Kwanzaa, an extensive and widespread celebratory holiday based on his philosophy of Kawaida, he is an activist-scholar committed to a "dignity-affirming" life for all human beings. Asante examines the sources of Karenga's intellectual preoccupations and demonstrates that Karenga's concerns with the liberation narratives and mythic realities of African people are rooted in the best interests of a collective humanity.

The book shows Karenga to be an intellectual giant willing to practice his theories in order to manifest his intense emotional attachment to culture, truth and justice. Asante's enlightening presentation and riveting critique of Karenga's works reveal a compelling account of a thinker whose contributions extend far beyond the Academy. Although Karenga began his career as a student activist, a civil rights leader, a Pan Africanist, and a culturalist, he ultimately succeeds in turning his fierce commitment to truth toward dissecting political, social, and ethical issues. Asante carefully analyzes Karenga's important works on Black Studies, but also his earlier works on culture and his later works on ethics, such as The Husia, and Odu Ifa: The Ethical Teachings.

"To have the seminal thinker Molefi Asante writing on the legendary Maulana Karenga is a grand treat! This work is an historic encounter of great significance and contemporary relevance."

— Cornel West, Class of 1943 University Professor in the Center for African American Studies, Princeton University

Odù Ifá

The Ethical Teachings

Translation and Commentary
A Kawaida Interpretation
BY MAULANA KARENGA

The Odù Ifá, the sacred text of the spiritual and ethical tradition of Ifá, is one of the great sacred texts in the world and a classic of African and world literature. It is the unique sacred text of a world religion with its origins in Africa, and with orthodox and varied forms throughout the Western Hemisphere. Odù Ifá: The Ethical Teachings is the first of its kind. It is a compilation and translation of the ethical teachings of the Odù Ifá, with commentaries. This book serves as a model and inspiration for modern moral reflection on critical issues of our time.

 

“The richness of the selected Odù Ifá verses, coupled with the author’s thoughtful translation and lucid commentaries, makes the book a tour de force, and a model for future research on similar texts from other parts of Africa. Dr. Maulana Karenga must be commended for this remarkable work.”

— Dr. Babatunde Lawal, Professor of Art History
Virginia Commonwealth University

Selections from The Husia

Sacred Wisdom of Ancient Egypt

Selected and Retranslated
BY MAULANA KARENGA

A selection and retranslation of the oldest sacred text in the world, with critical commentaries on the richness of the African spiritual achievement and legacy in ancient Egypt. In this selection we read the earliest written record of the dawning of humanity’s structured consciousness concerning spirituality and ethics. Here we find, for the first time in human history, the concepts of Maat (truth, justice, rightness), humans in the image of God, human dignity, judgment after death, free will, immortality of the soul, human equality, and social justice.
