Brief Description of Workshops

"People of Color In The Bible"


Many white and non-white Biblical scholars agree with author and lecturer William Emanuel that Jesus could not have been white! The Emanuel's shows that most Biblical personalities were People Of Color. They show that awareness of this heightens self-esteem among People Of Color and helps to improve race relations. They will share enlightening facts they uncovered in they extensive research. They will reveal evidence pointing to the ethnicity of Adam, Eve, and other prominent Biblical personalities, including Jesus! They discovered that an acceptance of the issue of People Of Color In The Bible offers great benefits to all: self-esteem is heightened, racism is honestly addressed, drugs and violence are effectively countered.


Our objective is to correct erroneous information regarding African History and to provide a historical platform upon which to build positive self-esteem & leadership. To acquaint African-Americans with their rich heritage and legacy ... most of which has been systematically concealed.
