About Afrikan-centered People Meet

Fill up your social calendar, spending time with like-minded people who love African culture! Afrikan-centered People Meet is not a dating service and we make no ridiculous promises, giving you unrealistic expectations...skip the awkward blind dates and anonymous online dating...make complementarity connections safely & easily in your city. The worst that can happen at an Afrikan-centered People Meet event is that you have a great time at an event with like-minded Afrikans.


Most likely, you'll have a great time, make new friends, and if a romantic relationship which leads to marriage or long-term partnership happens, well, that's a great bonus! 

We provide a platform that encourages liberation of the Spirit, relaxation, openness, and letting your guard down. Our members decide what they want to do. They simply sign up, show up, and have a great time! 

We arrange activities that vary widely to cover many interests. We have found that when you are having a great time in a fun and comfortable environment, meeting new friends and developing new relationships is easy and natural. Basically, we find or create the setting – you just show up, be yourself and HAVE FUN!

In practice, Afrikan culture — including the knowledge, attitudes, values and skills needed to maintain and perpetuate it throughout the nation building process — is developed and advanced through interactions.

By Afrikan-centered we mean:

  • acknowledges Afrikan spirituality as an essential aspect of our uniqueness as a people and makes it an instrument of our liberation.

  •  emphasizes the fundamental relationship between the strength of our families and the strength of our nation.

  • understands it can only be systematically facilitated by people who themselves are consciously engaged in the process of Afrikan-centered personal transformation.

A Warrior's Love

There are those who say that our righteous rage emotionally binds and inhibits us, that it keeps us from openly being loving reflections of our Ancestors.  However, this is far, far from the truth.  If anything, it frees Warriors to embrace ways of remembrance; remembrance of who we are and how we love, that others cannot even begin to imagine.  In fact, because we are not constrained by the demonic romantic, materialistic falsities manufactured and fostered by this reality, we are empowered to be even more loving of ourselves, those closest to us and the entirety of Afrikan people...

An Afrocentric Guide to a Spiritual Union by Ra Un Nefer Amen

Spiritual training is also needed to establish as a cultural pattern: caring, nourishing, kindness, and compromising, as substantiations of love.


The couple is the bedrock of the nation. Without it there is no family, no people. Without couples there can be no family to procreate and rear confident, untroubled, anchored children. No viable, community-respecting generation can be born to continue the process of life, living, building and defending. Afrikan couples must be whole, individually and as one. They must be able to trust their selves and each other implicitly. And that is what makes it imperative that we carefully choose our mates for Afrikan reasons. We must choose with vision. For we are the vanguard. Our unions have purpose far greater than the wants or needs of either member individually or the couple together.
