What is Africana Studies?

Africana Studies is the critical and systematic study of the thought and practices of people of African descent in the past and present unfolding – Karenga, 2002

"The discipline of Africana Studies activist-intellectual tradition goes back as far as classical African civilization such as ancient Kemet. In the ancient Kemet, the Sesh or Scribe was expected to use knowledge and skills to serve the people by ensuring justice, caring for the vulnerable and the environment, respecting persons and bearers of dignity and divinity, and working for future generations." – Research Methods in Africana Studies

Why we use Tehuti?
Tehuti is the Neter that is credited for inventing the Medu Neter (Hieroglyph). He is considered to father the written language and the patron of the Sesh. Tehuti is the personification of deep thought emerging from knowledge and wisdom. – Research Methods in Africana Studies. The name Tehuti is compounded of tehu which means 'to measure' and 'ti,' which mean 'dual.' – Metu Neter V.1

"Tehuti is often represented by the head of a stork-like bird. He is also depicted holding a scroll and papyrus, which are symbols of the Sesh. Like the Sesh and Tehuti, the scholar in Africana Studies is charged with producing knowledge of highest standards of deep thought that will be of benefit to future generations of people of Africana descent, the larger society, and the universe. This goal is achieved by the systematic study of the lived experiences and prospects of people of African descent… The Sesh was not an individual who was concerned with personal advancement, but instead was concerned with immortality. The discipline of the Sesh was writing in accordance with the precepts of Maat – truth and justice." – Research Methods in Africana Studies
