The Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge (ISUPK) holds weekly classes at the Carl H. Russell Sr. Recreation Center from 7 to 9 p.m.
Ahbaraham, an ISUPK officer in Winston-Salem, said that all Blacks, Hispanics and Native Indian people are welcome to attend as they seek to just spread what they believe to be “the truth.” He says in their classes they tackle every question from issues of the past and those of today, such as child support, the high number of black men in prison and the gentrification of urban neighborhoods in major cities all across the country.
The ISUPK teaches that Blacks, Hispanics and Native Indians are the true Jews of the Bible. ISUPK teachers also believe that according to the Bible, Jesus Christ is a black man, not olive or a man of all colors.
Ahbaraham says, “ Every Black, Hispanic and Native Indian should know there is color in the Bible, there is hate in the Bible, there is prejudice in the Bible, and these prejudices are for one specific people, they are not for everybody. The Bible wasn’t written for everybody.”
