My name is Ahjamu Umi. Ahjamu is Yoruba (West African) for "He who fights for what he wants!" Umi is Yao for Life giver. I have a Masters degree in Economics from Sacrificial State...Oops! I mean Sacramento State University.
I was born and raised in the inner city section of San Francisco, California. I managed through that often negative experience (dabbling seriously with trouble) I've organized extensively in the U.S., Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe. I've been to places like Cuba, Libya, and many other countries. I've worked with villagers, peasants, trade union workers, gang members, elderly, women, students, and virtually every segment of society for positive social change. My primary work today is the same work I've been doing since the early 80s and that is organizing to build the All African People's Revolutionary Party. I'm contributing to working to build an Oregon chapter in the party and beyond. As for my writing, I write books that provide images of positive people - folks who inspire and motivate other folks - become better people. Also, as of 2017, as a result of my success in helping develop dozens of organizers and wonderful human beings, I have decided that I have been able to help quite a few people learn how to reach their full potential so as a result, I'm now offering an advising service on problem solving.
