Change is Constant

 We have been blessed to see another year and we are here with gratitude and remembrance. This year, we are making a change and taking our annual Ancestor Celebration on the road with a trip to the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama. The trip is June 26, 2022. We will be meeting at 8:00 am, with the van leaving promptly at 9:00am. Our meetup spot is Afrikan Djeli located at 801 Lee St, Atlanta, GA 30310.

The fee is $50 per adult and $30 per child, which includes the transportation, fuel, refreshments/snacks and museum entry. A $25 deposit is required to secure your seat and can be made via Paypal to: obasi.originals@gmail.com. 

All attendees will be required to sign a waiver. 

We will have discussion around Ancestor veneration, lineage, family story swap and other activities on the ride to and from the museum. We hope you join us to visit this powerful place of memory and legacy. We are looking forward to a very educational and healing day.

Another Year -- Blessing Full


We have reached another year, another opportunity to give great honor and appreciation to those who have come before us. Honor and appreciation for the sacrifices, for the courage, for the wisdom, for the sticking to it.

We are not possible without this power that came before. The circle of life continues. We continue. And we continue in loyalty and honorable behavior.

We have seen the Truth that the past year has shown us. We have seen, as Ifà predicted last year, the revelation of half-animal, half-human. We are not deterred. We are not afraid.

Join us, again, in Celebration and Healing. We will be live on FaceBook with a limited gathering at Afrikan Djeli.

RSVP your attendance in person to fundraising@ancestralpower.org.

See you soon, see you there, see you safe.
