The program of the society is directed to people of African
origin, and its literature regularly integrates more familiar occult
themes with material specific to African Americans, emphasizing
lessons in African American history and the accomplishments
of Africans. Centered in the large African
community in the greater New York City area, the society also
regularly holds classes in African American communities along
the East Coast from Virginia to Connecticut. The society may
