ABOUT ILE OMODE:

Ile Omode seeks to create new leaders who borrow from the traditions of our past, but are fully cognizant of their place in this century and the tools it offers. Our young people must see their contribution in the greater effort as envisioned by Dr. W.E.B. DuBois and others. They must speak with authentic voices so that they might answer the call to be human, which as Dr. Maulana Karenga suggest is to "be divine"; seeking the highest good in ourselves and in others.
