Before there was Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Trinity United Church;Before Bishop TD Jakes and Potter's Field, Before Bishop Noel Jones, Drs. Price & Creflo Dollar, there were Bishops Athanasius, Augustine, Cyprian of Carthage, Clement of Alexandria,Macarius, Antony, --and there was Anub and Amoun--all of the original Black Church.


Yes! More than 57,000 Africa Black saints (in groups), from the early African Christian Church (we mention a few; tell where to find the rest).


To answer our brethren from Al Islam, no longer will you have to shirk, when you hear "Why do you follow a religion from Europe. You will be able to show that Christianity-- the faith of Our Lord Yeshua, Jesus the Christ-- came out of Africa, along with its precursor, the African Essenne and Therapeutae movements. Get yours today!

Most Blacks know about the African St. Augustine, and his mom, St. Monica. Some might be vaguely familiar with St. Martin de Porres, or St. Benedict the Moor. But few know the writer of the Gospel of Mark and secretary to both Apostles Peter and Paul--was African, Mark! We have not been taught about the Saints Clement and Denis of Alexandria, nor St. Catherine the Great. Thousands of Desert Fathers and Mothers who followed Christ in the first 599 years of the Church have been hidden from us.

See Hosea 11:1, Matthew 2:15


“Why do you follow a white god? Why do you worship in institutions that never accepted you?” Stinging questions Black Catholics and others ethnic perennially parry from members in the historically Black Churches. The questions traditionally have included queries from Al Islam (Muslims) believers in the urban areas.


But now evidence exists that Christianity (also) sprang out of the African, as opposed to the Saudi Arabia origination of the Prophet Muhammad and his original followers. Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folks (The Ancient African Liturgical Church, Vol. I). seeks to correct the oversight, especially as the Church grows by leaps in bounds in the Africa and the geologic and historical lands of Black Diaspora.


Such proofs can be gleaned from the 57,000 African Saints in the early 500 years from when Jesus (Yeshua) commissioned His apostles to go forth and teach all nations.


Horrors of enslavement and colonialism still haunt and direct the Black Church experience in the church. But now, Black Christians, Catholics and ethnics can show that Yeshua, Jesus the Christ, grew up in Africa, personally establishing an African root to His vine, and the branches. Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folk shows that the once powerful African Church had at least five apostles ministering there before their departures to other lands. Cephas (Simon Peter) in set up a church in Babylon, Egypt before going to Antioch and finally Rome. Phillip visited and assisted the Ethiopian Eunuch (See Acts 8:26-39. Nathaniel Bartholomew Levi ministered in Africa.


Tradition calls Matthew, Apostle to the Ethiopians (See http://www.traditioninaction.org/SOD/j092sdMatthew_9-21.htm

And Jude Thaddeus Lebbeus (Jesus’ cousin) healed there, according to Black Saints introductory chapters. The Coptic branch of the one, holy catholic (which means universal) Church still manifests proud traditions of the Holy Family’s visits. (See Isaiah 19:1, Matthew 3: 13-15. http://touregypt.net/featurestories/journey.htm).


Important information, inasmuch United States Bishops (and those elsewhere) blew an opportunity to evangelize the formerly enslaved after the American Civil War.


As the Holy Catholic church struggles in the West, the Church African (originally part of the oriental Church), finds the leaves of growth regaining the light of day, bursting thought the concrete of neglect, persecution, and heresies of the Vandals, and Arians who nearly destroyed the African Church during the AD 400s.

AND NOW!!!


The author--James Wesly Smith-- produced more than 30 Black Catholic themed film, TV and radio, and audio program series segments of Teach all Nations Upon This Rock, such as Who is God ,Who Is Christ, Mary and Family, The Sacraments and Sin (at Black Catholic broadcasts of live365.com, http://www.live365.com/stations/283424). He is a graduate of Loyola University, Los Angeles, with a Juris Doctor in law, an MA in Communication Arts (Film TV); and from San Fernando Valley State College (now Cal State, Northridge)--with a BA in Journalism(Mass Communications emphasis), and an AA in Journalism from Los Angeles Valley College.


“Black involvement in the pre-church really started when the African Pharaoh Akhenaton (Amenophis IV) ordered, ‘There is one God.’ ” Smith said.


“We have to challenge the unfounded concept that Europeans brought Christianity to Africa, (and by extension, to the children of the geologic and historical Diaspora). This was a sore point, Smith said, in the refusal of Southern bishops to evangelize Blacks after the American Civil War.


“And we have continually had to answer our Al Islam brethren as to why we follow the “alien” faith tradition we do. Now we have a Christian focal point back to our ancestral land,” Smith said.


also check out Black Catholic Gospel Radio the programming Index at Black Catholic Gospel Radio Programming Index
and the Black Catholic Gospel Radio Station actual broadcasts at Stories, legends, and myths of black saints are included here. A companion volume (Black Saints Narratives), covers a more comprehensive examination of the lives of the saints and holy folk. In the cultural anthropologic sense, the word myth does not mean fiction.


Oral and historical traditions show a different reading. Those following cultural anthropology templates (folklore) should be able to glean kernels of our truth--Our Story so long hidden, rather than his-story, which has been described as "lies agreed upon" in Western culture.


Black Saints seeks not to negative or attenuate any groups involvement. We do seek to include our own, and emphasize it, restoring us back into the annals of Christian and pre-Christian participation in the Church of God.


And that would include African Kenites near Gaza teaching the Habiru of the name of the One True God! (See the Jewish Encyclopedia on the Kenites).


In this first volume, we primarily focus on the African East coast and Northern areas (the Mauretanias, Libya, and what now is Algeria…the area to which the African Church was restricted to, in the first 599 years, anno domini.


(And, oh, those not familiar with ancient maps should know there is no North Africa on ancient maps).


Other volumes will contain additional areas, materials, for example, 600 to the modern era, as well as the annals, and writings of the Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folk.


Those not brothers and sisters, SKIP THIS PART!



Did you know...?


Mother Maryam and Yusef had spiritual relatives in Africa (Essennes Judaism), one of the reasons Archangel Gabriel sent the Holy Family there.


5 Apostles evangelized Africa, Matthew (to Ethiopians), Nathaniel Bartholomew, Judde Thaddeus Lebbeus, Phillip, Mattai, and the Ethiopian Eunuch. (Book of Acts)


Literature of early church was largely African--Tertullian, Origen, Cyprian of Carthage, Clement of Alexandria, Pierus, Athanasius.


There exists no colonialist “North Africa” designation on ancient maps.

An old Black adage opines, “your friends don’t need an explanation, and your enemies won’t believe it no’ way”. (Not that readers are enemies, but brothers and sisters know whereof I speak). Thus, how do we know the saints and companions are Black (instead of just African)?



In these pages as well as our research, we used the age-old American test. Notwithstanding the legal examination, above mentioned, (the “One drop rule”), we query, “How would they (the candidate for inclusion, and or the companions) fare in the American South in segregation Mississippi, walking into a Ku Klux Klan rally?) Or


Would the saint, mystic, and companions need an identity card in South African in from the late 1940s, to the early 21st century?


Further, we also acknowledge the “birds of a feather” paradigm. What would happen to those “not black,” associating in perilous times of martyrdom with those who are?


But note. Some listed here aren’t ethnically black (unless you count HB Leakey’s discoveries that modern man-one drop rule-- walked out of Africa million(s) of years ago).


But black they are, nevertheless. The American South had a name for them. Presumably, likewise, in South Africa in the 1940s to 1990s.


We include them because they helped lift up the Kingdom of God amongst the Africans, and descendants of the African Diasporas (historical and geologic). Hence, they are reckoned among the “holy folk”.

This tome came about because this writer tired of Western (read that American church) racism. Though now waning in this 21st century but still extant, we were tired of feeling we did not belong.


We tired of being unable (or psychologically unwilling) to take the cup—Blood of Christ—in Holy Eucharist without fear that some third worlder (they consider themselves first world) would frown in disdain and refuse to drink.


Further, watching a Grammys (Music) Award Show one night, one Black artist thanked the crowd for “teaching us about Jesus!” …I more than fell out of my chair. Christianity came out of Africa (see “Out of Kemet (Egypt)” quote above), not to it! We disparage no one’s involvement in it. But we wished the little ones that sing, “Yes, Jesus loves me!” included those with melanin. Hence, this writing evolved.


In some instances, calendar dates differ while they may be the same.


This is due to changes in the Latin, Byzantine, Coptic, Russian, or Greek rites(Orthodox). (Rites are but ways of worship, of doing things in the church. For Example, in Australia, one may be greeted with a "G'day, mate". IN chicago (USA), it might be, "Hello". Both are greetings, just differently manifested).


So historical dates are approximate, due to the differences in the Latin Rite, Russian, Greek, and Roman, AND Western interpretations/translations of those calendars.


Names without dates are taken from tombs, authorities, references to other saints in Africa, Kemet(Egypt, tot he Eurocentric), and environs (under the birds of a feather model)

Some saint names may be duplicates because of the spelling of those names. Others may be different entities, altogether.


Also, saints in the early church were determined by acclamation. Devotions were springing up, to this or that holy person or martyr.
