Latest positive news out of Ferguson. Community coming together.
I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I wanna watch you do everything you love to do. I want to witness the passion in your eyes when you talk about something you live for. I wanna witness the way you light up when you get to express yourself. Share all of it with me. Every short story, every poem, every brush stroke, run you learn, every lyric you write, every new dish you cook. I wanna hear, see and taste everything you have to offer.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 2x09 - “Cased Up” (November 11, 1991)
chapters are being organized in Chicago, the Bay Area, Denver, the DMV, Houston, LA, NYC, Philly, Providence, Peoria (IL) and Redlands/Riverside (CA).
let’s keep this going - reach out to join a chapter or organize one
just wanted to provide you with some more information about the project so that you may feel inclined to get involved!
the fundamental goal of this project is to create a diasporic network of educated people so that we may unite behind racial political activity through real, face to face connections. the book club is the first step of that process.
the primary function of each chapter is to use the book club as a starting point for the development of a political education curriculum so that the chapter can begin outreaching to local communities in order to bring the information garnered from the literature to the people. as I’m sure you know, people in the hood aren’t reading what we will be so each chapter needs to figure out how to bridge that gap.
once a larger community is built, that community can begin engaging in self-reliance campaigns which will be a national thing catalyzed by each book club chapter.
with all that said, i truly hope that you join a chapter or start one!
