Another reason why he wrote his book is to promote his organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. GRCAM is a private for profit service based business. It has three main components: a social service component, a spiritual component, and a political component. There focus is to bring goods and services to the low income African American communities and working directly with single black mothers, single black fathers, and low income two parent families within the communities and cities they will serve. They will offer a second chance program to ex-offenders, former gang members, and the homeless. They will offer private employment within Emmanuel Barbee's organization to there clients and members based on there budget and sponsorship.
There agenda is to end gun violence, poverty, structural inequality, and police brutality within the communities and cities they will serve if given a chance. GRCAM will also have a private school which will be the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute school for Arts and Entertainment. They will start off with six basic classes ranging from Film Making, Performing Arts, Entrepreneurship Training, Journalism, Book Writing Workshop, and Financial Literacy. They will include internship for our students. There long term goal is to offer a music workshop with an onsite music studio and tutorial service which will include an after school program, adult education program, and a recreational center for our students and for the community we will serve.
Finally, he wrote his book in order to generate capital/seed money to offer incentives to thirty talented people within the state of Illinois or beyond who have read his book and agree with what Mr. Barbee is trying to do, for those individuals to contact him and speak with him directly. He want those persons to come to Chicago and work with him directly in helping him start his organization. He want to make Chicago a model first before he expand to 25 other cities within 25 states. Once there established in 25 states he plans on expanding his organization abroad to Africa, Brazil, and the Caribbean Islands and assist people who want and need his services.
He tried to get other established black organizations to work with him in improving his community on the Westside of Chicago during the 90s but he was unsuccessful at winning them over. He also turned to the black churches in his former community but they over looked his ideas as being unrealistic. In 1991, Emmanuel Barbee turned to the internet and begin creating online groups/ virtual communities to spread his plan/vision to improve Urban America. He assisted others who have accepted his hand of friendship with finding college scholarships/grants, nonprofit grants/small business grants; housing; legal services and employment on a national level all for free. He is on 300 social networks and he correspond with 125,000 people worldwide trying to recruit others to join his cause (Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos).
He created social groups so that he could unite his supporters and interact with them on four major sites Google Plus Hangouts, Facebook, Skype, and Yahoo Messenger from around the globe. Those who are working with him from behind the scene and is a member of his social groups he will openly reward them by giving them a chance to come to Chicago as soon as he has his team in place (thirty people) and once they find a place of business in Chicago his group members are welcome to meet and greet there clients and members in person and promote there business/ministry three months free of charge. He will also give everyone on his friends list and is active in his social groups a chance to be in his upcoming plays, films, or to participate in there talent shows, and fund raising parties at local events just as long as they are keeping the lines of communication open with him and can prove that they have purchased his book. Emmanuel Barbee wants to make this a meaningful experience for everyone because he has ran across so many fake people online. Emmanuel Barbee's organization is open to all law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist but everyone must agree with the principles in his book no exceptions. GRCAM is a spin off of Dr. King's "The Poor People's March." Emmanuel Barbee is an authentic urban author and upcoming social entrepreneur. This is his contribution back to his community and throughout the African Diaspora.
In 2012, Emmanuel Barbee published his revised book due to the fact that he believed his first book was sabotage to purpose to hurt his creditability as a professional author. Emmanuel Barbee is a Christian Socialist. 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. Some of his Christian friends asked him why do he include secular people on his friends list? He explained to them that Christians should focus on what they 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.
