Stop Killing Each Other… Black, Brown… Stop The Violence- Unite!

My beautiful brother and fam Bashir posted and shared this… Which I want to share with you guys….

Stop the Violence!

Peace in the Streets!

#Black Lives Matter!

May this post find you in the best of spirits!

Please support or join the mighty Newark Anti-Violence Coalition (NAVC) organization! This is a grassroots anti-violence organization. It was founded on July 20th 2009, in reaction to the murder of Nakeisha Allen. She was a mother of two kids killed in the crossfire of a shooting on Elizabeth Avenue and Meeker Avenue in Newark, NJ. Ms. Allen was one of four victims of community violence in the city on that day. But three days later, the NAVC used civil disobedience to shutdown the intersection, by forming a circle to block traffic, to bring attention to the disease of community violence in the city of Newark. The NAVC would go on to shutdown intersections all over the city every Wednesday, for over five years straight. Now the NAVC continues that work of shutting down intersections, but the organization also organizes town hall meetings, forums, participates in mentorship, participates speaking engagements in detention centers, speaks against police violence, speaks against domestic violence, and offers support to victims of violence.

The sole purpose of the mighty Newark Anti-Violence Coalition (NAVC) is to inspire everyday people to help create progressive change in the city of Newark and to help to empower Black and Brown communities. Our leader is madam Chairwoman Keesha Eure!

To contact the NAVC, please call us at 908 605-NAVC.

Thank you in advance for all your support!

Respectfully,

Bashir Muhammad Akinyele

upcoming-Malcolm X Remembered at Real Talk Thursdays-2/23/17-NEWARK NJ!

malcolm-x-newark-black-and-hispanic-familiesThis week in Newark, NJ, there is a free, weekly, on-going, open to anyone group called REAL TALK THURSDAYS meeting up as done every Thursday, for an hour, to discuss matters of importance but not typically discussed. This weeks meeting will be the beautiful soul and man, Malcolm X & his importance to the Black Liberation Movement.

When I return back home I will be attending religiously; however for the time I am EXTREMELY sad –especially this week!!!- that I will be missing out on this weeks discussion. Malcolm X is a man I love and am very passionate about; he is a person history must not forget yet he is a person I don’t recall ever being in a text book in school.

This is an wonderful opportunity for the community to get together and shed the chains of racism and lies; to build unity within the community! Having these educational, intellectual conversation with others within the community leads to RE-education. RE-educate the mind, share your knowledge, discuss and learn more knowledge for yourself…Gain self love and empowerment for, this is key to building a stronger community and a stronger community is key to freedom...

Want to attend? Read the post below written by Bashir Akinyele, one of the chairmen of this much needed, finally REAL, place to go to discuss issues and topics that MATTER but are all too often “left out” or “forgotten”… Bashir Akinyele says of REAL TALK THURSDAYS:

“This program is an opportunity to discuss solutions to the problems affecting African Americans, Latino Americans, people of color, women, the youth, and humanity.”
