Khepera Charter Schooláis a K-8 African-Centered Academy devoted to the Rebirth of Academic and Cultural Excellence.á It is a tuition-free Philadelphia public charter school.áá

ANKH WS SNB

 

         

In 1975, Dr. Jacob Hudson Carruthers, otherwise known as Baba Jedi Shemsu Jehewty went to Senegal to meet the great Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop who inspired him to not only continue studying Nile Valley civilization as the cornerstone of Afrikan-Centered education, but to study the literature of KMT and to master the process of translating the ancient language known as Mdw Ntr (hieroglyphs). Through his research and activity from the Kemetic Institute, which he founded, Dr. Carruthers would impact Afrikan-Centered education in Chicago and across the country. One of those contributions is the Ankh Ws Snb, now slightly modified by our school. There are common themes found in the literature of KMT. Ankh, ws, and snb or life, power, and health are very common among those themes. Dr. Carruthers developed the Ankh Ws Snb from those themes. Khepera Charter has used the Ankh Ws Snb as a thematic frame for each of our trimesters. The first trimester is Ankh Ws (Life and Power), Wajah Snb (Prosperity and Health), and Djed  (Strength and Stability).
