Nationwide — There is a new holistic practice for African Americans called “Ka-Maat”. The word Ka (pronounced Kah) is of Egyptian origin and means the vital energy that creates and sustains life, and Maat, also of Egyptian origin, means truth, justice and rightness. As a non-religious practice, Ka-Maat teaches the power of positive thinking and emphasizes living a healthy lifestyle with a cultural base of African history and tradition as the foundation of the practice.
Sean XLG states, “What I set out to accomplish is to create a new and healthier way of life for African Americans that is grounded in cultural traditions and historical values for us as a people and the ultimate goal is to empower our community.” As a holistic way of life, emphasis is placed on individual growth and the collective development of the black community. The practice is designed to address the many social ills that disproportionately affect Black America from drugs, poverty and crime to unemployment, illiteracy, and imprisonment, along with health issues such as diabetes, hypertension and cancer.
The book touches on the richness of African and African American history and references the works of some of our brightest scholars from Chiekh Anta Diop and John Henrik Clarke to Civil Rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.
