(Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day Everyday)

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is a spinoff of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Poor People’s March on Washington. The march was an effort to gain economic justice for poor black and poor people in general within the United States in the wake of King’s assassination.

The campaign demanded economic and human rights for poor Americans of diverse backgrounds. The idea that all people should have what they need to live food, clothes, and shelter. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) shifted their focus to these issues after observing that gains in civil rights had not improved the material conditions of life for many African Americans.

Since 2001 over 4000 people has been killed in Chicago alone and as a result Chicago is currently the murder capital in America. I am using the only tools available to me to get my message out to the public my Youtube videos, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my Blogtalkradio show, and now my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition available on Amazon.

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 is to promote my virtual organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. GRCAM will become both a nonprofit division and a for profit division service based business.

It will have three main components: a social service component, a spiritual component, and a political component. Our focus is on providing goods and services to the low income African American community and strengthen single black mothers, single black fathers, and low income two parent families. In time we will offer a second chance program for ex-offenders, former gang members, and homeless individuals.

Finally, I wrote my book in order to generate capital/seed money so that I can start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute and hire qualified individuals to assist me in the daily operation of my Christian organization. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 10 other cities within 10 states.

My vision goes beyond Urban America I also plan to expand my Christian organization to 10 countries in Africa with assistance of African Immigrants in America. They will assist me in setting up chapters in 10 countries in Africa.

* Liberia * Ivory Coast
* Ghana * Angola
* Nigeria * South Africa
* Kenya * Ethiopia
* Tanzania * Uganda

We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. 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 the people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM. In time, we will expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands.

I am not interested in seeking celebrities to vouch for me they don’t know my story my message is to those who are personally affected by racism and urban violence. Nor am I interested in creating a Gofundme page or asking for donations instead I encourage people on my friends list, and those in my social groups to read my story for themselves. It’s my hope that through my revised book I will connect with Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs, Philanthropist, and who will work with me in starting my nonprofit and my for profit Christian organization in Chicago.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my organization is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I keep re-emphasizing my revised book. GRCAI is private in order for me to weed out people who don’t care about our inner-city youth and their families. GRCAI is open to all law-abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community and throughout the African Diaspora.
