(2019 Year OF Manifestation)

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is a virtual Christian socialist organization which I created back in November 1991 on a site called Gopher because I was dissatisfied with all of the division taking place among Black People. I’m called beyond the four walls of the church and make an impact in our urban communities and also in the market place.

My goal was to start a new movement in Black America and throughout the African diaspora in order to connect with other like minded Millennials, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean. I also welcome Non-black sympathizers, all Christian denominations, Moderate Muslims and Secular People who are interested in solving black issues once and for all in America.

I also created GRCAM in order to help raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America. After 15 years of being rejected, humiliated and ignored by established black organizations in the city of Chicago I decided to write and publish my story (The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America) second edition in hopes of attracting 30 black middle class professionals and others within the United States to join my management team.

I have my articles of incorporation and my bylaws typed and available for my Nonprofit Cooperative. I also have my articles of organization typed and available for my For Profit Service Based Business. Yet still to this day I don’t have anyone on my management team.

This year I have one more class called Making The Documentary. From the class I will learn how to write a business proposal and submit them to Angel Investors, Foundations and corporations who would invest $400,000 for my film project. Then I can hire qualified film crew such as Sound Technician, Graphic Designers, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Camera Assistant, Hair & Makeup Artist and Production Assistant and of course quality actors.

The proceeds from the film will go towards funding my Christian business the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago. If you know of any actors or other film makers who are able to travel to Chicago and audition for my urban Christian film (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago) then please encourage them to send me a friend request on Facebook along with their email address thanks.

GRCAI on the spiritual side will help raise up believers globally empowering them with Kingdom principles so that they can take their place in world as Kingdom ambassadors. GRCAI is also open to Secular People as well. I don’t ask for donations instead I encourage everyone on my friends list and everyone in my social groups to do their part by sharing my book information with your friends, family, places of worship and also at your local community center this will help speed up the process.

I am just one black man with a plan it takes a team to make a dream work. I hope you’ll consider purchasing my book and reading my story for yourself. My book is the foundation of my future Christian business and we will carryout my ideas to the fullest. I believe once GRCAI is established in Chicago it will become one of the fastest-growing faith base businesses in the country, attracting top entrepreneurs to partner with us and that there will be a demand for us to begin expanding franchises around the globe.

Our Mission

* The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago (GRCAI) focus is on strengthening the black family with an emphasis on single black mothers and single black fathers. We aim to reduce urban violence through our programs and services.

* GRCAI embrace the Art Community of actors, bloggers, film makers, poets and writers. GRCAI will be dedicated to providing quality services, community resources, office rental space and employment opportunities for our members who are independent filmmakers, visual artists, and entrepreneurs based on our budget and sponsorship.

* We aim to equip black entrepreneurs and create an infrastructure for local artist in order to rebuild the black community by applying the principles from my revised book which will transform our inner cities into flourishing communities. GRCAI aim to equips men and women to serve and lead with integrity, creativity, competence and compassion in an urbanized environment.

Our Vision

To eradicate urban violence in Chicago and beyond.

My Vision For Africa: To reconnect with our ancestral homeland Africa. It’s my hope to connect with African Immigrants within the United States that want to work with me in expanding GRCAI in Africa. Those of you who live in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda to please encourage your family and friends who reside in Canada, Europe and the United States to purchase my revised book and read my story. This will help me speed up the process to recruit brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up 10 chapters on the African continent.

We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. We will offer private employment to our members based on our budget and our sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, offer solar energy to help our members with their electrical generators and most of all help improve the African economy as well as educate the people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM. In time, we will expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands.

GRCAM is a global community of thinkers and builders I need your help to move GRCAM from behind a computer into our urban communities that need our talent and skills. I believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to the low income African American community and our collective future.

GRCAI will be membership based. Everyone will be screen and must attend our mandatory orientation and sign the community pledge no exceptions. No harden criminals, No active gang members, No urban terrorist, No pedofiles, and no half steppers allowed in my organization this is how I get down. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
