For twenty three years my plan/vision to improve Urban America has been ignored by established black organizations in my city and yet no black leader in the United States has a vision to end urban violence or police brutality what is wrong with this picture? Who is Emmanuel Barbee? Similar to Richard Allen who founded the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME), the first independent black denomination in the United States during American slavery. Rev. Allen focused on organizing a denomination where free blacks could worship without racial oppression and where slaves could have some dignity. He worked to upgrade the social status of the black community, organizing Sabbath schools to teach literacy and promoting national organizations to develop political strategies. Emmanuel Barbee has a plan/vision to improve Urban America in our inner cities starting in Chicago. His agenda is to end urban violence, gun violence, poverty, structural inequality, institutionalized racism, and police brutality within the communities and cities his organization will serve if given a chance.
Emmanuel Barbee lacks support in his city to jump start his vision. He has reached out to his former alderman and his former state representative and local churches from his former community about his plan/vision to improve the Westside and the Southside of Chicago they rebuke his message as unrealistic. Since 2001 over four thousand people has been killed in Chicago alone Chicago is the murder capital in America and yet no one seems to have a plan on how to deal with this issue.
Emmanuel Barbee turned to the internet and created the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement a virtual community/organization on Gopher in 1991. He assist others in the United States who have accepted his hand of friendship with finding college scholarships/grants; nonprofit grants; small business grants; housing; legal services and employment leads on a national level all for free. He created social groups in order to connect with other liked minded individuals from around the country to discuss ways on improving the African American community. Today he is on 300 social networks and he has 125,000 people worldwide on his friends list. Unfortunately he only has three people currently on his advisory board.
Since Emmanuel Barbee lacks the manpower and the capital to move his virtual organization from behind a computer he decided to write his book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” Second Edition in order to get his name and vision out to concerned citizens who want to see these social problems resolved once and for all. 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 this book is to promote my organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. GRCAM will become a private for profit multi service based business. The reason why I chose to make it private so that I can exclude passive spectators on my friends list and small minded individuals who refuse to accept the vision my creator has given me to do.
Finally, I wrote my book in order to generate capital/seed money so that I can hire thirty qualified individuals who will assist me in the daily operations of my business. We will find a place of business on the Westside of Chicago and eventually expand to the Southside of Chicago. We will work directly with local residents in the community we will serve.
Under our social service component: Pending on our budget and sponsorship we would offer private employment to our clients and members within the organization. We will also offer a second chance program for ex offenders, former gang members, and the homeless. Those who are business minded we will teach them how to start their own business and work with them until it materialize. Our goal is to first stabilize the community through our outreach programs and create legitimate jobs so that our young people don’t become career criminals. As a result our clients can raise their family in a safer environment.
Under our spiritual component: It’s optional for secular people. We will teach Christian values and do cooperative alliance with moderate Muslims in order for us to pool our resources for the betterment of our community. We want to teach the community about how to co-exist and respect one another belief system.
Under our political component: We will create our own independent political party at the local level. We will collective write laws which will be compatible with the dominant culture and push to have them on the books which will protect local residents and give community rights to those affected by bias in the current system. Once my organization is established we will hold both Rogue Cops and Urban Terrorist accountable for their actions and create laws aimed specifically at those who continue to destroy black life through our political component. We will also do cooperative alliance beyond the black community beyond Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
Once I am able to find a legitimate film director or play director I will turn my book into a movie or a play. Once the proceeds from my book and my film increases then I will start my private school the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute school of Arts and Entertainment. We will offer six basic classes ranging from Film Making, Performing Arts, Entrepreneurship Training, Journalism, Book Writing Workshop, and Financial Literacy. We will offer internships and give stipends to our students pending on our budget. Our 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.
My book is the foundation of my organization and those who want to use our services must agree with the principles in my book. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 25 other cities within 25 states as mentioned in my book which are as follows: Alabama; Arkansas; California; Connecticut; Florida; Georgia; Illinois; Indiana; Kansas; Louisiana; Maryland; Michigan; Minnesota; Mississippi; North Carolina; New Jersey; New York; Ohio; Oklahoma; Pennsylvania; Texas; Tennessee; Virginia; Washington; and Wisconsin.
Unlike Marcus Garvey who encourage black people to go back to Africa which he thought would solve our racial problems he himself never went to Africa and he accepted donations from the Klan. Yet he is called a hero by many. In contrast, I want to connect with Native Africans in the United States to work with me in building up my organization in 25 states before we expand abroad to Africa to start chapters in 25 countries. We will wait until conditions of Ebola is under control before we go to West Africa. We will go through the proper channels to get my organization as an NGO (Non-Government Organization) chapters in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, and do our research to see if people want and need our services. We will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and sponsorship. This organization will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, and most of all educate our people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM.
We will also expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands to people that want and need our services. GRCAM is about building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to communities and families that want and need our services. My organization is open to all law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is more than me trying to sell a book this is about real issues affecting urban communities, families, and society. Those of you on my friends list who are serious about working with me then when you can purchase my book and read my story for yourself. If you agree with my plan/vision to improve Urban America then send me your Gmail to my facebook inbox. In turn, I will send you an attachment of my book flier. Please print them out and share them with your family, friends, your place of worship, your school, and also at your local community center.
Consider joining my social groups and advertise your business or ministry or just network with my supporters from around the globe. You can also connect with me on Skype we can chat in real time via voice chat or video chat. My screen name is manwell4mankind. I want to give my readers who have purchased my book and agree with my plan/vision to improve Urban America an opportunity to participate in our open auditions as soon as I am able to find a legitimate film director or play director. They must bring my book during auditions as proof they purchased my book. I might be able to help pay for your travel expenses and hotel pending on my budget. If you are selected to be in my films or plays then I will discuss compensation with you at that time. This is my contribution back to my community and throughout the African Diaspora.
