Dr. Jacob H. Carruthers, Jr.
(1930 - 2004)
Professor Jacob Carruthers was born on February 15, 1930 in Dallas, Texas. He is a firm believer that a large part of liberating African American people comes from understanding and connecting history, culture and heritage. He received a B.A. from Samuel Huston College in Austin, Texas in 1950; an M.A. from Texas Southern University in 1958; and a Ph.D. in Political Studies from the University of Colorado in 1966. From 1966 to 1968, Carruthers worked as an assistant professor at Kansas State College before joining the staff of Northeastern Illinois University's Center for Inner City Studies (CICS). Carruthers, along with Dr. Anderson Thompson, Robert Starks, Dr. Conrad Worrill and others shaped the CICS program into one that emphasizes self-determination, activism and study of the global black community.

In this context, Carruthers has earned respect as one of the world's leading experts in classical African civilizations. His interests have carried him throughout the continent of Africa, conducting study tours to Egypt, Ethiopia, the Nile Valley, Zimbabwe, Senegal, the Ivory Coast, and other parts of West Africa. Carruthers has written or edited hundreds of essays and papers on his findings and his major works include: The Irritated Genie : An Essay on the Haitian Revolution, Essays in Ancient Egyptian Studies , Intellectual Warfare , MDW NTR: Divine Speech and Science and Oppression . He has lectured at various educational institutions; served on evaluation teams for many area high schools; and worked as a consultant to both the Dayton and Chicago public school systems. Carruthers served as founding president of the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations for five years. In that capacity, he led a group of 1,000 black teachers, students, artists and scholars from the United States to the Nubian Cultural Center in Aswan, Egypt for a two week conference and tour of Nubia and Egypt.
He is a founding member and priest of the Temple of African Community of Chicago and founding member and director of the Kemetic (Egyptian) Institute, which sponsors the annual Teaching About Africa program for schoolteachers and administrators. He married his wife, Ifé, in 1986 and has four children.

Dr. Jacob H. Carruthers
...
Dr. Jacob H. Carruthers was a professor of history and education at the Center for Inner City Studies (CICS) of Northeastern Illinois University for thirty-two years.
"Jake from Chicago", as he was affectionately known, excelled academically. Following graduation from Phillis Wheatley High School in Houston, Texas, he attended Samuel Houston College in Austin where he earned a bachelor's degree. After the Sweatt vs. Painter United States Supreme Court decision in 1950, he along with Hemon Marion Sweatt and three other blacks integrated the University of Texas Law School. Jurisprudence, however, was not his calling, and he did not return the following year. In 1951, facing the draft and the Korean War, he volunteered for the United States Air Force. After serving in the Air Force, he enrolled in Texas Southern University where he earned a master's degree in government.
His passion for learning and a sense of service led him back to the classroom. From '61 to '64, Dr. Carruthers taught at Prairie View College in Texas. After earning a doctorate in political science from the University of Colorado at Boulder-the first African American to do so-he taught at Kansas State College in Pittsburg, Kansas for two years. Thereafter, his career led him to Chicago, and in 1968, he joined the faculty of the Department of Inner City Studies Education at CICS. Serving as a consultant on African-centered education to the Chicago Public Schools and other school systems throughout the United States, Dr. Carruthers was influential in the African-centered education movement. He was a co-founder of the teacher training program, Teaching About Africa. He was also sought after nationally and internationally as a lecturer on African history. In 1981, Dr. Carruthers became the High Priest of the Temple of the African Community of Chicago that was established to meet the spiritual needs of those who sought to practice ancient Nile Valley spirituality. He was a founding member of the Kemetic Institute and The Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations (ASCAC) and served as its founding president from 1985-90. In 1995, Dr. Carruthers was initiated into elderhood in a community ritual at which time he took the name Jedi Shemsu Jehewty (the one who speaks is a follower of Jehewty).
Dr. Carruthers established himself through his work with leading African and African American scholars in the world through his leadership in the development of a plan to rewrite African history under the aegis of the African World History Project of ASCAC.
Dr. Carruthers authored several important books that paved the way and provided the framework for the African-centered approach to the research and study of Classical African history and African civilization. His works include: Intellectual Warfare (1999), Mdw Ntr (1995), Essays in Ancient Egyptian Studies (1984), and The Irritated Genie (1985). Other significant works include Science and Oppression (1972) and African or American (1994). He co-edited Reconstructing Kemetic Culture (1990), The African Worldview (1986), and The Preliminary Challenge (1997). Many of his works challenged the prevailing ideas in the field of Egyptology as well as the role of African people in the development of civilization in the ancient Nile Valley.
