Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement are colluding with media to rewrite history – yes, rewrite history. Both entities assert that all of Black activism during the 1960s and 1970s was part of the Civil Rights Movement. They have even coined the period, the Civil Rights Era. There were other movements going on during the same period as the Civil Rights Movement. Just as (some say) the Civil Rights Movement is the legacy of Rev.

In April 1960, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, then led by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., established the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Ella Baker, at the suggestion of Dr. King, was the primary organizer (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), 2013). This student movement was one of a few Black Power organizations that changed its philosophy from being a civil rights organization, embracing the strategy of non-violence, to a Black Power organization th

Summary of the Black Youth Organization (BYO)
The Black Youth Organization was established by college students in 19
I recently saw a documentary of the Black Panther Party that aired at the E Street Cinema in Washington, DC. It was the most compelling and accurate portrayal of the organization that I have seen. Many have sought to demonize the young Black activists and their efforts have gone largely unrecognized. The documentary is a collection of news clips and interviews with authentic voices. It puts to rest the contention that the Black Panther Party was a terrorist organization and/or a hate group. I
If we are to win Black Power in MertoEast in Saint Louis, Missouri, we must deal with the issue of crime there. I have decided to go for it. I need your feedback and input. I think this is the right approach is for no other reason that it is unavoidable. Every time I deal with Brooklyn or Washington Park, I am confronted with corruption and prostitution. I have concluded that prostitution is at the root of nearly all of our social problems in the African community, out of wedlock childb
The world needs power and clean coal was the cheapest, but it's causing global warming and climate change. Until now, those who were against the use of fossil fuels did not have a viable solution to replace them. Allen Hydro Energy Corporation (AHEC) a cleantech startup has invented a solution, but President Obama's Administration and Energy Companies don't want it funded or known about. AHEC's Power Plants are 70 Story Buildings that produce more hydroelectricity than China's Three Gorges Dam

Today, July 2nd, my apartment complex had its power restored after a fallen tree was removed. It was hot and miserable over the weekend.

As was discussed in earlier engagements with Pan Africanism, Pan Africanism’s purpose is the formation of a United States of Africa and for greater co-operation between the different peoples of the African Diaspora to be achieved. It is a dynamic political philosophy in the words of George Padmore designed to achieve social justice and human equality. In order to gain a deeper understanding of Pan Africanism, it is important to engage with its many sub-categories that have developed throughout
I spent 15 hours with some of the most enthusiastic Community-level Repair/Reparations Advocates that I has been around in quite a while. During the Southeast Regional 2010 Convention, February 19th & 20th in Atlanta, GA, for a moment I thought the revolution was on! For me, it was both entertaining and educational (Edutaining).
