Servant Emannu'el Branch—minister, cultural preservationist, filmmaker, and speaker grew up in the inner-city of Georgia's oldest city--Historic Savannah. He travels from city-to-city and state-to-state visiting, documenting and experiencing slave plantations, Black History Museums, Historical Black Churches, marker dedications, cultural events, etc.
Practically living on the road, he collaborates, networks with, and captures images and filmmaking for a vast array of African American museums, Historical Churches, HBCUs and Historical organizations, and Culture Keepers. Always immersing himself into all aspects of African American History and Culture, he can often be found sleeping overnight in slave cabins (remembering the hard journey of our ancestors).
The goal, for Servant Emannu'el, is to use this experience and knowledge to help bring about racial healing to McIntosh County. He begins by advocating that the many contributions to McIntosh County, Ga made by African Americans receives the same respect and recognition as the other heroes of the local area who have been memorialized with statues, plaques, monuments, headstones, and markers across this great county. African Americans helped to build McIntosh County, not bring enslavement to McIntosh.
Servant Emannu'el serves as minister and biblical historian for Yahshua University.com, which he founded in 2009. This unique ministry, meticulously, relates his Black History travels and findings to the biblical-tribal Israelites who were enslaved in Africa's Egypt. In 2021, with a wonderful team of local Culture Keepers, he also founded the annual "Butler Island Day Commemoration" in Darien, Ga to honor the more than 900 enslaved persons on Butler Island Plantation, the home of "The Weeping Time."
He also founded, in 2016, a Black owned digital news platform—BHBP News.com. Believing there is just one race (the human race) he serves as an advocate for racial equality and social justice. His goal is to inspire the next generation to take up the mantle to continue to strive for positive change for the betterment of humanity without any bigotry, hatred, or racism.
