ASCAC MWR President’s Update


The Midwest Region of the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations is dedicated to the rescue, reclamation, reconstruction, and restoration of African history and culture. We are firmly planted with our classical foundation in Kemet (Ancient Egypt) and we work diligently to accomplish our goals and objectives in an effort to liberate African people worldwide. We use the lessons of our past to understand and face the challenges of the present to guide us to a future free of oppression where we “reclaim our fame” and take our rightful place on the stage of world history.

We, in ASCAC, are committed to rescue, reclaim, and restore African history and culture. We draw from the lessons of our ancient past and develop ways to strategically implement those lessons in the contemporary world. The perspective of an African worldview gives us an approach that is essential in the struggle to “reclaim our African minds” as Dr. Anderson Thompson repeatedly stressed.

The goals and objectives of the ASCAC Midwest Region are to encourage and generate research projects and programs emanating from our membership, primarily and the community secondly, which contribute to the restoration of Classical African Civilizations and an African World View. We work to guide such projects via active networking and effective research development strategies.

Another objective is to facilitate the successful completion of tangible products (papers, pamphlets, books, audio/visual presentations, study guides, resource directories, works of art, science, etc.) that promote Classical African Civilizations and an African World View. We promote educational events (conferences, classes, workshops, lectures, exhibits, festivals, podcasts, webinars, etc.), which can facilitate the liberation of African people. We strive to create an environment for spiritual growth and development.

The following states make up the ASCAC Midwest Region: Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. If you reside in any of the aforementioned states and you are interested in becoming a member of ASCAC, starting a study group, or just want to speak to someone about the organization contact  ASCAC MWR and you will be directed to a City Coordinator. 

We encourage you to explore our website and join us whenever possible at our conferences and programs throughout the Midwest region. Check in often to see what’s on the schedule.

Rosetta Cash, ASCAC MWR President
