(Trying To Develop Business Partnership Within Black America)

Unlike most authors who write books just to have their name out in the public I want to connect with my readers who agree with my plan and put into practice what I’ve written. My revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition has been available on Amazon.com for four years now yet it is barely selling. In contrast, the Fox mini series Empire has drawn 12.2 million viewers according to variety.com My question to Black America what’s wrong with this picture? My goal for writing and publishing my story is to get my message out to other liked minded individuals to work with me by sharing my book information so that I can eventually move my virtual organization from behind a computer. The moral of my story is that even if you come from a bad neighborhood or if you are from a low income family does not mean you cannot succeed in life I’m living proof.

Who is Emmanuel Barbee?

Emmanuel Barbee is the founder and President of the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. He is a former GED instructor, upcoming social entrepreneur, blogtalkradio host, a professional blogger, college graduate, and a published author. He created GRCAM on a website called Gopher back on November 10th, 1991 because he lacked support from established black organizations in his city. Emmanuel is not affiliated with the political machine in Chicago because all of the corruption and
cronyism associated with Chicago politics.

The purpose of GRCAM is to form an independent collective movement that does away with the many divisions within the black community which is counterproductive. For two decades I have been speaking out against urban violence in Chicago war torn communities online and offline yet I have little support for my efforts. The dirty looks, humiliation, and the rejection about what I am trying to do have not deterred me from my calling Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. But glory to God for the internet in the digital age and this is why I wrote my story and this is why I decided to make my organization is private in order to weed out trouble makers and those who careless about our urban youth.

My pledge to the inner cities of Chicago is that no one under my leadership will ever have to endure such humiliation and rejection for trying to do something positive in the black community. Since 2001, over 4000 people has been killed in Chicago alone and as a result Chicago is currently the murder capital in America. We see that nothing out there is working to end the blood shed why not embrace my plan?

Once I generate enough capital from my book sell and have my management team in place then I will start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute in Chicago. GRCAI will empower local and national Actors, Actresses, Artists, Comedians, Fashion Designers, Film Makers, Models, Musicians, Performing Artist, Poets, Singers, and Writers.

Our students will learn Film Making, Performing Arts, Entrepreneurship Training, Journalism, Book Writing, and Financial Literacy. We will offer internships and give stipends to our students and offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and sponsorship. In time we will offer a second chance program for ex-offenders, former gang members, and the homeless. Once GRCAI is established in Chicago I will declare war on Willie Lynch within the black culture.

My goal this year is to connect with 30 individuals within the United States who have read my story and who agree with my plan to improve our inner cities in America starting in Chicago for those persons to make themselves known to me I provide all of my contact information in my revised book. They must have degrees or training in the following areas: Executive Assistant, Accountant, General Manager, Social Worker, Associate Director, Financial Planner, Marketing, Information Technology Coordinator, Grant Writer, Lawyer, Development Assistant, Real Estate Broker, Business Manager, Insurance Agent, Administrative Receptionist, Human Resource Manger, Finance, Musician, Vocal Coach, Poet, Play Writers/ Film Makers, Actors/Actresses, Theater Director, Public Relation Specialist, Journalist, and Box Office Staff.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will offer multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to developing, promoting and increasing awareness of black culture by presenting a wide variety of art forms. Our programs would represent the black culture of African Americans, Native Africans, Brazilians, and Caribbean Islanders throughout the African Diaspora. GRCAI would offer opportunities for audiences to participate in discussions with the directors. Our films would stress the importance of the artistic and educational value of film from documentaries and short films. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute (GRCAI) will offer events throughout the year including workshops and premieres. In addition, GRCAI cinema would be a resource for educators, filmmakers, distributors, television stations, and our members.

GRCAI Performance Arts program will bring together film, humanities, literary arts, music, theatre, dance, and visual arts. Our students will gain the knowledge and skills to transform injustice in our society. We want to connect with people who share our values, and turn passion into action.

My book is just the beginning, it’s my hope that through my book I could connect with people from the business community who are Angel Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, and Social Entrepreneurs to discuss my for profit business plan. In contrast, I also plan on meeting with Donors, Philanthropist, and Sponsors to discuss my nonprofit business plan.

Once my organization is established in 25 states I plan on having Native Africans in America to assist me in setting up chapters in 25 countries in Africa. I want to earn creditability in America first before we expand abroad to Africa. We will go through the proper channels with their government to start my (NGO) Non-government organization/ private for profit service based business in order to offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and our sponsorship.

We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, and most of all help improve the African economy as well as educate our people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM. We will also expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands. GRCAM is about building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to families that want to utilize our programs and services. My organization is open to all law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.

Get involved

In order for me to achieve my goal, I need people on my friends list, people in my social groups, and Chicago residents to stand up and work with me by spreading my book information with your family, friends, place of worship, and also at your local community center. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 25 other cities within 25 states as mentioned in my book.
