(Explaining My Vision To Black America & Others)

I created the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement on a site called Gopher on November 10, 1991. I created GRCAM on the belief that our inner city youth and their families are entitled to respect, basic resources, and safety within the African American community. The only problem was trying to get others in my community to work with me in starting this new movement in the black community.

I use social media to broadcast my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos through my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition on Amazon.com in order to recruit qualified individuals to join my management team in order for me to move my virtual organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement from behind a computer.

My book is just the beginning once I generate enough capital from my revised book 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.

We will look for 24,000 square foot building until we can purchase the leased property for our after school programs and provide classrooms for our students as well as a gymnasium for our recreational center. My pledge to the inner city of Chicago residents is that none of my members will ever have to endure such humiliation and rejection just for trying to do something positive in the black community.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will provide superior customer service to all of our clients and members. Unlike other traditional community organizations that are copy cats we are about taking the lead to help end urban violence, poverty, structural inequality, institutionalized racism, and police brutality within the communities and cities we will serve if given a chance. GRCAI will utilize a membership based approach to recruiting and staffing. This collaborative effort results in better services. GRCAI will implement innovative programs that will set us apart from the competition.

GRCAI will be committed to serving inner city youth and their families who reside in underserve communities. We will work closely with educators to identify students who are most likely at risk of dropping out of school and that need an intervention. We will offer tutoring, mentoring, and social services to prove to the community that we care about them as our own, by meeting their basic nutritional, spiritual and healthcare needs.

It’s my hope that through my revised book I will connect with 30 individuals within the United States who have read my story and who agree with my action plan to meet me in person. 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.

It’s also my hope that 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.

History

My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ revealed the vision to me, to build a holistic Christian organization which will focus on strengthening the black family and promoting community activism. After 15 years the lack of manpower and the capital to jump start my Christian business so I decided to write and publish my story. My action plan to help improve our inner cities in Chicago has been overlooked by established black organizations in my city.

Yet 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 senseless violence in Chicago why not give my action plan a chance? Since I lack the manpower and the capital to start my Christian organization I wrote the vision and made it plain in my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition on Amazon.com

I wrote my book for three reasons: one reason is to raise awareness about the genocide which is taken place within our inner cities in America. Another reason why I wrote my book is to promote my virtual organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. GRCAM will become both a nonprofit and also a for profit service based business. We will have three main components which are independent of one another. They will consist of a social service component, a spiritual component, and a political component.

Our Social service component – We will provide goods and services to the low income African American community by working directly with single black mothers, single black fathers, and low income two parent families within the communities and cities we will serve. We will offer private employment within the organization 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. Our goal is to first stabilize the community through our outreach programs and services and create legitimate jobs so that our young people don’t become career criminals. As a result we will have safer streets where our clients can raise their families.

Our spiritual component – (Optional for secular people) GRCAM is a Christian socialist organization. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. We will focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology. Jesus commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Luke 4:18-19.

We welcome all Christian denominations in the faith, moderate Muslims to teach the community about tolerance and how to co-exist by respecting one another belief system and Secular People. GRCAM will play a unique role in community activism and contract campaigns where workers are seeking to leave poverty and advance their opportunities through unionization or improving their existing collective bargaining agreements. GRCAM will bring moral persuasion, support through prayers, direct action, and economic development to the black community.

Our political component – We will create our own independent political party at the local level. We will educate the community and push for community rights by creating our own laws known as community rights and get those laws on the books which will be compatible with the dominant culture. Our laws would protect our local residents and give the community a voice and those affected by bias in the current system. We will hold both Rogue Cops and Urban Terrorist accountable for their actions in a constructive manner. We will form cooperative alliance beyond the black community so that this organization can be diverse for all people of Chicago and surrounding suburbs of Chicago.

Finally, I wrote my book in order to generate capital/seed money so that I can hire thirty qualified individuals to assist me in the daily operation of my business. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 25 other cities within 25 states. Once we’re established in America I plan on having Native Africans in America to assist me in setting up chapters in 25 countries in Africa. I can’t do this alone in order for me to achieve my goal, I need people on my friends list, people in my social groups, and Chicago residents to work with me by spreading my book information with your family, friends, place of worship, and also at your local community center.

GRCAI 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 ordinary law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. GRCAI is private in order for me to weed out small minded individuals and people who careless about our inner city youth. This is my contribution back to my community, society, and throughout the African Diaspora.
