This is Part 2 of a look into the teachings and practices of the KRST Unity Center of Afrakan Spiritual Science in Los Angeles. Their name was thrust onto the national stage when the mother of #NipseyHussle referenced their teachings at her son’s memorial. The thing that struck me about what she said, and why I decided to get more understanding, was that after having studied with them, she had #ascended. It resonated with me because I believe the only way is up! This center teaches #BlackEmpowerment from the perspective of historical accuracy and cultural relativism. They teach on #ethics, #socialresponsibility #philosophy, #religiousart, and #LanguageArt. The staff of ministers are an eclectic group of individuals with various distinguished academic and professional backgrounds.
