I love the fact that Wakanda developed technologically and scientifically, and they had culture side by side with technology. We don’t have to give up who we are in order to go where we need to be. They didn’t “Europeanize” Wakanda in order to be technologically sophisticated…the culture was there, plants, animals, waterfalls and mountains.
One of the benefits of this movie is that it showed Africans in particular that you can improve the quality of life of Africa…you can improve the technological sophistication of Africa without killing the National Geography that God gave you. You don’t have to kill the National Geography that God gave you in order to make it technologically sophisticated. White folks taught us lies, saying in order to be technological sophisticated you have to destroy the wet lands, institutionalize all your animals, cut up all of your rain forest, mine all your minerals and rape the soil. I appreciate the fact that in Wakanda they have culture side by side with technology.
I love the fact that within Wakanda culture…and it is true for most African cultures…in order for you to become the King of Wakanda you had to be buried in the soil of the Ancestors. In getting buried in the soil of the Ancestors and in drinking the juice of purple hearted herb you were automatically Astro projected to the room or heaven of the Ancestors were you had to have conversations with your Ancestors before you could exceed to the Throne… That was powerful.
If we could achieve that type of Spiritual Technology, I think we would be able to get ride of criminals in the Conscious community. I love the fact that in Wakanda you had to be buried in the soil of the Ancestors before you could become a King.
Could you imagine if you could be buried in the soil of the Ancestors and had to Astro project back in Ancestral Heaven and Have a Conversation with the Noble Son of the Soil Robert Sobukwe… And have conversation with Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey…and have conversation with the Most upright Man Thomas Sankara…and have conversation with Queen Nyabinghi, Queen Makeda. What if we had to Astro project to the land of the Ancestors to go and have conversation with them before we can seek to lead our people. That process can nearly guarantee that the leader will be Sincere and will nearly guarantee that the leader won’t sell his Ancestral land to land thieves.
