(My Revised Book Is Just The Beginning: Trying To Unite Urban America, Africa, Brazil, and The Caribbean Islands)

We as black people do not patronize each other ideas, visions, or dreams. We as a racial group hold more hatred, resentment, and bitterness among each another than any other racial group in America. In Chicago many black leaders are pushing to have gang leaders release from prison rather than work with me and Sister Rena to start our nonprofit organization.

I created “GRCAM” the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement on November 10th 1991 on a site called Gopher. My focus then was on inner city youth and their families who I believe are entitled to respect, basic resources, and safety in their own community. I wanted to create a place to empower black students on campus to share our experience, exchange ideas, question beliefs we take for granted, grapple with ethical problems we never considered. Today I have broaden my perspective to include African Immigrants, Afro Brazilians, Afro Caribbean Islanders, and Nonblack sympathizers interested in black issues and want to help us solve black issues once and for all.

GRCAM is a virtual Christian socialist organization. Christian socialism is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. We believe capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, which some Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. The cause of social inequality is due to capitalism. 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. I created GRCAM as a place where like minded individuals within the United States and abroad for people of all walks of life can gather in unison to fight for equality, social justice and economic empowerment.

Once I am able to generate enough capital from my book sell I will start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute and hire qualified individuals to assist me in the daily operations of my business in Chicago. I will also declare war on this Willie Lynch mentality within the black culture. We reject the notion that everyone in the hood is a lost cause, we will offer a wide range of programs and services to meet the need of the community.

GRCAM will focus on the well being of our children, their families and help urban communities to establish goals, identify problems and solutions, and measure the performance of our programs and services. Our services would consist of outreach, case management, housing, private employment, education, primary care, substance abuse treatment, and community research. We believe everyone contributes to our society, and that everyone should have the same opportunity to live a life of value, self-respect, compassion, and dignity.

For 24 years going on 25 I’ve been doing my best to find 30 qualified people in my city and online to join my management team yet still to this day I have no one on management team. Established black organizations in my city has overlooked my plan to improve our inner cities in Chicago yet none of these black leaders have a plan to solve our current problems within our community. We see that all of the protesting and chanting is not working to bring about social change. If only I could reach positive demonstrators to work with me in getting this organization started in Chicago then we will see real change come about in our inner cities in America.

This is not my burden alone I am just one black man with a plan this is a shared burden. You don’t have to wait until my revised book get on the best sellers list to step forward and work with me and Sister Rena. I am using the only tools currently available to me to get my message out to the public that is my Youtube videos, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my Blogtalkradio show, my Free Webinars I hold on Facebook, Google Plus and Skype. The only thing which is preventing me from turning my virtual Christian organization into a real business is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I keep re-emphasizing my revised book.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will be committed to strengthening the black family, our inner city youth and the black community through a variety of outreach programs such as, working towards ending urban violence, prevent infant mortality, address health disparities, promote health in our community, support those with disabilities, and enhance the quality of life for everyone we serve. GRCAM will use a vision-driven approach to help solve problems in the community will we serve by nurturing individuals and their families to enhance the quality of life and encourage fundamental change in the social and economic system.

Our objective to unite the African-American community, the Afro-Brazilian community, the Afro-Caribbean community and the African Immigrant community. I welcome all Christian denominations, moderate Muslims, and Secular People within the United States and those who live abroad to join my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos by purchasing my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition available on Amazon. We will offer support to grassroots Actors, Actresses, Artists, Comedians, Dancers, Fashion Designers, Film Makers, Models, Musicians, Performing Artist, Poets, Gospel Singers, and Writers to promote their talent and skills under our entertainment component. It’s my hope that the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement could someday become the Hub in the Midwest for emerging artists and upcoming entrepreneurs.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will be an organization with the following objectives:

* Connecting ordinary law abiding citizens who reside in the inner cities to have a chance to become business owners and owners of property.

* To fund ideas of our members who have a vision to create or do something on a grand scale that would be beneficial within the black community and assist the less fortunate.

* To provide educational opportunities and provide basic resources for everyone in this organization to reach their personal life goals.

* To create a new mindset in which we consider one another as equal and value life.

* To resurrect Black Wall Street and the African Golden Age.

We will reach out to those we are trying to help themselves to ensure they have access to our programs and services. We will conduct community research to address the root causes of health problems, such as poverty, homelessness, and environmental issues and develop action plans to solve them head on. GRCAM will offer economic empowerment, social services, and educational programs could help preserve the dignity to residents we will serve. These services can transform individuals and the community. GRCAM will take a vision-driven approach to resident services nurturing the power within individuals and families to enhance the quality of life and encourage fundamental change of social and economic systems. This service enriched environment provides opportunities that foster meaning, joy, self-sufficiency and choice.

Our core services are categorized into five areas:

* Health and Wellness – The need for physical activity, diet, and nutrition as well as offering wellness and preventative programs for health and well being.

We believe that rewarding civic engagement creates real systematic change from increasing economic stability, workforce readiness and high school graduation rates, to improving 21st century skills and promoting strong, vibrant neighborhoods. We’re out to empower good people to change the world. To learn more about what the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will do for the black community if given an chance just read my revised book. GRCAM will promote the health of our community, increase access to programs and services to our inner city youth and their families.

I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 10 other cities within 10 states. My vision goes beyond Black America my vision also includes Africa, Brazil and the Caribbean Islands. Once we’re established in 10 cities I plan on having African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up chapters in 10 countries in Africa. We will go through the proper channels with their government to start my (NGO) Non-government organization/private non-profit and for profit service based business. We will 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.

+ It’s my hope that my revised book would get into the hands of Angel Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, and Social Entrepreneurs who will work with me in starting my For Profit business in Chicago. As well as get into the hands of Donors, Philanthropist, and Sponsors who will work with me in starting my Nonprofit organization in Chicago.

+ I am still searching for a legitimate film director and producer to work with me in turning my revised book into a motion picture. As soon as I have my film crew in place I will post that information on my websites. If you have purchased my revised book and agree with my plan or if you are an active group member I would encourage You to participate in our open audition for my urban Christian film based on my book when the time comes. If you are selected by our panel then I will discuss compensation with you sorry only U.S. citizens at this time.

Our community will be built on values of faith, community service, stewardship and growth with friendship at the center of everything we do. GRCAM is about making our urban community better, healthier, and stronger. GRCAM is also about building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to families that want to utilize our programs and services. GRCAM is open to all ordinary law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. GRCAM is private in order for me to weed out small minded individuals and people who careless about inner city youth and their families. This is my contribution back to my community, society, and throughout the African Diaspora. Our motto: No GOD, No peace. Know GOD, Know peace. Peace over violence
