(GRCAM Made In Chicago: We Have Talent In Chi-Town)

For 25 years African Americans online and in my city have ignored my ideas to improve our urban communities starting in Chicago. As a result, over 4000 people has been killed in Chicago alone and as a result Chicago is currently the murder capital in America. We see that all of the protesting and chanting is not working to bring about social change. 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 which is based on my virtual Christian organization GRCAM. I provide an indepth 21st century strategy about what my organization will do to help improve our inner cities in America starting in Chicago.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement 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. We will be committed to the healing ministry of Jesus by showing compassion to inner city youth and their families which will promote dignity to the people and community we will serve. GRCAM is based on three main components a social service component, spiritual component, and a political component.

My book is just the beginning. I am called by my creator to rebuild the inner-cities in America similar to Nehemiah who was chosen by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 10 other cities within 10 states. Before I expand my Christian organization on the African continent I want African Immigrants in America to work with me in starting GRCAM in Chicago for credibility then we can discuss expanding to 10 countries in Africa.

Today my focus is on recruiting 10 individuals within the United States who have read my story and meet the qualifications I am looking for which are as follows: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs, and Philanthropist, who will work with me in starting my nonprofit and my for profit Christian organization in the Westside and Southside of Chicago then I will start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute as mentioned in my book.

It’s my hope that the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute would become the Hub in the Midwest for emerging artists and upcoming entrepreneurs. We will create programs and services which will benefit underserved urban communities. We will offer quality education which will improve academic performances and deliver on the aspirations they and their families desire for their children. GRCAI will prepare students to reach grade level expectations and develop the skills, competencies, and character necessary for them to succeed in life.

GRCAI will offer a variety of services such as tutoring programs for our students; science and social studies; writing classes; character building programs. GRCAI will help bridge the gap between aspirations and turn them into realities by preparing our students how to master core subjects, character building, and community leadership. We will focus on college-preparatory curriculum and or vocational training in a community focused base environment. Our students will be push to value academic achievement and strong character building, GRCAI will prepare our young people to participate meaningfully in the greater economy and expand their choices and opportunities.

GRCAI will help our students reach academic excellence, instills character, and cultivates leadership. Our academic program and college preparatory curriculum are structured to accomplish two goals: (1) student acquisition and mastery of basic literacy, numeracy, and writing skills and (2) student application of basic skills to synthesize, analyze, apply, and make inferences about content that is more challenging and complex. Our staff, students, families and the community will be more involved in the educational process to create a safe, supportive environment where students are motivated to learn and believe that success is attainable. Everyone honors and respects the difference and uniqueness of each individual while developing a sense of responsibility toward themselves, their school community, and the community at large.

In order for the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute to be operational and true to the mission of preparing students for college and the world beyond, we will screen everyone to be sure everyone is committed to the mission and dedicated to community partnership and embodies integrity and character. Our rigorous hiring process will ensure that all of our staff members are committed to the ideals that ensure high expectations for every student regardless of race, gender, or socio-economic status.

We will serve Austin, Garfield Park, and North Lawndale community on the Westside of Chicago. We will also serve Auburn Gresham, Bronzeville, Chatham, Englewood, Roseland, Southshore, Washington Park, and Woodlawn on the Southside of Chicago. Once GRCAI is established we will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and our sponsorship. In time we will offer a second chance program for ex-offenders, former gang members, and for homeless individuals.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will take the lead in advocacy for people in need with particular concern for the poor and the powerless. Advance the development of a safe neighborhood environment and quality of life. Create affordable housing, job opportunities and business development on the Westside and Southside through productive collaborations. We will create the best films and stage plays in Chicago, and we will promote unknown artist who become members of this organization. This is my contribution back to my community, society, and throughout the African Diaspora.
