There are a number of issues, concerns and possible solutions facing our community today, from a dysfunctional public school system, record levels of unemployment and more men of color incarcerated than ever in the history of this country!

Some people would agree that what is and has taken place in our community and in America is systematic, and the only way to reverse it is to realize that you, we, are being systematically controlled by the system. In other words, what has happened is not by accident and when you go back into your history and research, you will discover the means by which we find ourselves collectively today!

In order to build anything, you must have a plan in place so that you can lay down a foundation from which to build.
