The Black High Temple should remain the primary most active cadre of the movement. These young men possess tremendous amount of energy. If they are well informed and directed could serve the useful purpose of keeping the masses of our people informed of their democratic rights and obligations.


Neo-Blackism if properly packaged and imbibed can lead to a greater state of contentment in our youths, dynamite their potentials in new direction and enable them to see the potentials around them. With the fraternal-instincts and ruggegity most of them already have, compiled with knowledge and proper understanding of Neo-Blackism, we will have a new source of potential leaders with the ability to speak for Africans and the Black man worldwide.



The institution of higher learning is a Black High Temple. This law empowered the Zone to establish a temple in the area of its jurisdiction and report to the National Body. No Temple shall be under any other Temple



The Zone shall provide guidelines for the management of the Temple(s) under it.



The Temple should be organized and structured in a manner to control admission of members and right to initiate.



Black High Temple shall engage in the following activities:


Observance of certain special days like African liberation day, international day for the elimination of racial discrimination, Sharpville and Soweto massacres, Aba women’s riot day, Founders day, Martin Luther King day, Malcolm x, Bob Marley day as well as the usual student solidarity days like Kunle Adepeju and Akintunde Ojo day. These days could be marked with posters, notices, write-ups, Mourning’s or Jollies.


Organization of workshops, seminars, lectures both in-house for members only or for the general student body or indeed members of the public on Pan-Africanism, Blackism, Black history, Traditional Religion.


Student unionism, sports and socials community development and charitable activities, good works to complement Government efforts and give back to society.


Liaison with the local zone or other blackist organization in the college or local area.


Serve as a local distribution centre for the Uhuru magazine and engage in publication of their own local magazine if possible.


Engage in commercial and fund-raising activities on campus and in the immediate local community commercial activities should be such as would positively develop the campus and local community and reflect the aims and aspirations of the N.B.M


Promote, organize and participate in local cultural activities that reflect our aims and aspirations.


Organization of a movement-week once a session to create awareness about the activities of the organization.


Stand resolutely inn defence of the week both on the campus and in the local community Resist attempts by campus authorities, lecturers to oppress students especially females using the law and other legal means to effect justice for the oppressed.




The duties of an AXE-MAN shall include to;


  • Show a positive commitment and a willingness to sacrifice for the development of African and the Blank-man world-wide as reflected in the aims and objectives of the Neo-Black movement.


  • Engage in active student unionism, sports and socials while striving for Excellence in academics. Strike a balance between the various facets that make up college or campus life.


  • Develop leadership attributes, resourcefulness, focus, initiative, fitness, discipline as behooves Neo-Black men of the Neo-Black movement.


  • Develop an understanding of Neo-Blackism, especially the pan-africanist, blackist components as well as a proper grounding in African and Black history enhanced by private study, participation in seminars, workshop, meeting and other activities of the local temple, zone or national body including those organized by other blackist organizations.


  • Engage actively in community development, charitable activities and good works as a way of complementing Government efforts and giving back to society.


  • Participate in the Fraternal and ritual elements of Neo-Blackism as reflected in the foot­ball, initiation rites, mournings, jollies and’ other related activities of the Neo-Black movement.


  • Develop an understanding of the inner workings of democracy as a system of Government, Nigerian constitution, citizenship rights and legal system as a step towards full awareness of legal right, self-empowerment and the empowerment of others.






In the interim the following measures should be approved for implementation.


  • The Zones to carry out cleansing exercises in the temples under them.
  • Temple initiations shall be approved and organized by the Zone.
  • Hence forth Temples within a Zone shall conduct joint initiation.
  • No non student shall be allowed to hold any office in the Temple.

  1. Dont worry JN Whiteman an article demonstrating the imperial heights of NBM charitable donations and the unfaltering culture of our giving is coming soon… We will be seen as God wants us to be seen. In the mean time we must copy, paste and say a lot of things: NO TO CORRUPTION, NO TO SLAVERY, NO TO POLITICAL THUGGERY, NO TO RAPE, NO TO ELECTION VIOLENCE, NO TO CULTISM, NO TO MURDER, NO TO CRIME.

    Feel free to remind me of any platitudes I may have missed.


  2. JN=Bemigho..thanks for your co-oporation..the earlier,the better…Am very greatful..soon NBM will seen as an good and peaceful organisation…I thank Almight God that he has throughly opened the eyes of our leader…WE MUST SAY NO TO CORRUPTION..and fight for our right and our fathers land…

    Liked by 1 person

  3. I thank my National Head,Chairman NCOE..
    as this constitution is been amended..all Axemen must complly..failure to do so will be deaxed..this is for the betterment of NBM and Black Africans Worldwide,not to be seen as a voilent or criminal organization. Rather be seen as a peaceful organisation fighting for opression,racism,and black man freedom worldwide…


    • True talk my brother I hail. Indeed the perception we are a violent or criminal organization is been offset well with image laundering techniques such as posting photographs of us visiting orphanages, helping prisoners, gifting nominal things to charity etc. The more orphanages we visit the better given all the current bad publicity.

      JN Whiteman, I will make a great post very soon about the NBM’s supreme charitable efforts. It will be very fitting and will tell the full story.


  4. This makes an interesting reading, I have been an Axeman in in spirit, body and soul right from my University days and a lot of people think I am one even among the Axeman off and on Campus, however, my reservation stems from the the anttics and behavior of some self acclaimed Axeman whose character is at variance with the lofty ideals of the movement, hoping to pick up a form soon. I reside in Abuja and a lawyer by profession. Thanks.


    • Dosky from the institute of management technology in Enugu. Remember what you call a “temple” is supposed to be an institute for learning not a place for beating other men off in the woods and then killing fellow students together.
