REFLECTIONS... 23 underserved problems confronting black people continues to serve as the foundational value and defining characteristic of our ministry today. Albert Buford Cleage Jr. was an organic intellectual and original thinker, developing his views over time as he sought solutions to the problems faced by black people in the Detroit of his youth, and later, in the other cities in which he resided and offered leadership to the black community.

The Science of KUA was designed to help black people to rediscover the real and authentic self that was made in the image and likeness of God so that they could act as full human beings.

We have to preserve what we have built by institutionalizing it in the clothing of the church. BCN can continue to grow and evolve if we can emphasize the “Christian” aspect of who we are. We have to focus on transformation rather than revolution. The development of the Science of KUA and the change process has to be our emphasis. We are still revolutionary. We are not changing our program or what we are about but we can’t have a revolution by ourselves. black people have to be willing and they are not willing at this point.
