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.”

In Newark Black History Month Committee Sponsors “Real Talk Thursdays”

This is AMAZING news! I hope to see more of this nationwide. Black history is not just slavery and the civil rights movement; and then I’ve heard white people complain they don’t get a special month… UMMM, they have 11 of 12 months!? My gods that makes me VERY furious, to say the LEAST. And if only a month; they should be at LEAST sharing more than slavery and the civil rights movement; the Black community, the Hispanic community, both INDEPENDENT of the other have more history than school students ever get taught, never at school! What’s worse is Black lives were the first to walk this earth… Africa IS our motherland, ALL… Why do you disrespect what you ar16402886_10208623961578893_6232878237637317772_o-2.jpge or what you once were, or just facts, to be put even more basic for you??
