Mama Marimba Ani: Is an Afrikan-Centered Cultural Scientist, engaged in the reconceptualization of the Afrikan Experience from the perspective of Afrikan people and also is known for introducing the term “Maafa” to describe what is known as the Afrikan Holocaust. She served as an SNCC field secretary in the Freedom Summer of 1964 and was later brought to Hunter College in the City University of New York, under the tutelage of Nana Dr. John Henrik Clarke, where she taught for 25 years. A partial list of the courses that she delivered include: Afrikan Civilization; Afrikan Spirituality in the Diaspora; Women in Afrika; Women in the Afrikan Diaspora; Men in the Afrikan Diaspora; Afrikan Spiritual Thought Systems; The Afrikan World View; The Work of Cheikh Anta Diop; The Work of Ayi Kwei Armah; Theories of White Racism.

In addition, she created the Maat/Maafa/Sankofa Paradigm as part of the development of an Afrikan Cultural Science and Social Theory. She is the founding director of the Afrikan Heritage Afterschool Program (AHAP) in Harlem New York (1983-1998) and after leaving the academy now directs this programme in Atlanta. Mama Marimba is an active member of Us Lifting Us, an Afrikan/Black economic cooperative, and the Association for the Study of Classical Afrikan Civilizations. She is author of a number of ground breaking books: Let the Circle Be Unbroken: The Implications of African Spirituality in the Diaspora (1989); Yurugu: An African-centered Critique of European Cultural Thought and Behavior: African-Centered Critique of European Thought and Behavior (1994). Ideologically, Mama Marimba considers herself “a Garveyite, An Afrikan Sovereignist, and a Race Woman” and in Mosiah 2015 Mama Marimba was appointed the UNIA-ACL Ambassador of Race First Sovereign Development.
