The Ascended Master Afra was the first Ascended master from Africa. Afra is the patron of Africa and of the black race. Afra was the first member of the black race to make his ascension.
Long ago, he sacrificed name and fame to sponsor a vast continent and a mighty people. When Afra ascended, he asked to be called simply "a brother," or frater, in Latin. And so "a frater" became the name Afra.
The black race was originally part of what was known as the blue race and the violet race. Their skin actually had either a blue or a violet hue.
These souls lived in a spiritually advanced civilization that existed on the continent of Africa. Each nation is called by God to manifest a specific virtue or fulfill a certain destiny.
The members of what is now known as the black race were sent to earth to master the qualities of God's power, his will and his faith (on the blue ray) and the qualities of God's freedom, justice and mercy (on the violet ray).
