Seeing Heaven in the Face of Black MenThe title of this book is a metaphor for change in the United States of America. When (US) Americans expect to, want to and actually see heaven(dignity, strength, honor, beauty) in the face of Black Men a transformation will have definitely taken place in this country; one that moves it closer to racial unity and justice.   This is not exclusively a male concern and at the same time I am most familiar with the male experience.  Therefore I created a commitment “oath” for Black men. A White male friend of mine created a commitment “oath” for White Men.  I invite both groups to embrace their respective oath.  In so doing, you will help break the log jam preventing true racial equality in (US) America. You will also contribute to creating true unity on lasting foundation.

Oath of Black Manhood

First and foremost I am committed to take responsibility for my spiritual growth and transformation. This means I will strive to attain the highest Good, the highest values and abandon ways that do not serve myself or humankind well. I will continually conquer my lower nature with my higher nature refusing to sacrifice a higher value to a lower one. I hereby dedicate all my efforts to the oneness of the humankind and commit to do the following.

B.  BE My True Self         (Be Spiritual)

L.  LOVE My Essence       (Which is Spiritual)

A.  ACCEPT My Struggle  (To Be Spiritual)

C.  CLAIM My Heritage     (Of Spiritual Strength)

K.  KNOW My Reality         (Is Spirituality)

M. MANIFEST Love              (The Core of Spirituality)

E.  EVICT Ego                      (Let Spirituality In)

N.  NEVER Give Up               (My Spiritual Reality)

I commit to creating a new “(g)race” space with my White brothers and sisters.
