“Brick by Brick” a six-week class taught by author Khabyr Hadas is a fundamental guide to tearing down the wall of racial inferiority amongst Black youth, through Garveyism and African-centered education. Addition to the information taught by author and UNIA District Commissioner Khabyr Hadas, Baba Joe Ragsdale, the founder and curator of the Lest We Forget Slave Museum will also present artifacts and hidden information about the enslavement of black people in this country.

  Students should take this course to help them restore themselves to their traditional greatness. Students should take this course based upon these simple realities.

1-Levels of self-hate, incompetence, dis-unity, weakness, self-pity, worthlessness and lack of ambition.

2-No memory of our past. Students have no memory of African history before slavery.

3-No sense of racial identity, a deliberate dis-connect to Mother Africa, compassion, self-respect, respect for elders, cultural continuity, economic cooperation and preparation for the future.

4-False sense of reality and are completely un-aware that a war has been declared upon them and their people.






Netfah’s Fundamentals of Raw Clothing Construction workshop offers thought provoking, hands-on learning experiences for ages 11+ designed to teach not only the premise behind basic raw clothing construction techniques, but an introduction to the concept of wholistic dress as well, all without the need of a sewing machine! From concept to completion, students will learn the basic knowledge and skills required to create and re-create apparel and accessories for a lifetime from a wholistic, eco-friendly, and uniquely creative perspective. At the end of the workshop students will be equipped with enough knowledge, insight and information to become eco-fashion stewards and self-sufficient producers. They will also have the opportunity to celebrate one another’s individual creations during a ‘Best Of’ peer-based Awards ceremony.
