(GRCAM A New Movement In Black America)

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is not for “Celebrities” our focus is on ordinary law-abiding citizen rather they are working class, middle class or underclass who are concerned about improving the low income African American community and strengthening the black family starting in the city of Chicago. GRCAM will take the lead by connecting with other like minded individuals who will be dedicated to ensuring a strong, safe and vibrant African American community for generations to come.

Our goal is to unite with other Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants within the United States and beyond, Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean, and form a cooperative alliance with all Christian denominations, Millennials, Non-black sympathizers, moderate Muslims and secular people who are interested in working with me in putting my ideas into action. 26 years of rejection by established black organizations in the city of Chicago has not deter me from sharing my vision with others.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian organization is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I am on social media to get my message out to the public through my Youtube videos, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my online talkshow, and now through my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition available on Amazon.

I am just one black man with a plan and a vision it takes a team to make a dream work. 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 encourage everyone on my friends list and everyone in my social groups to please purchase my revised book and share my book information with your family, friends, place of worship and also at your local community center this will help speed up the process so that I can generate enough capital to hire qualified people to join my management team.

It’s my hope that through my story from my revised book would attract 30 professionals within the United States who have read my story and who meet the criteria that I am looking for which are as follows: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist.

I am also looking for legitimate Film Producers, Actors, Stage Managers, Grant Writers/Fundraisers, Technical Directors, Marketers, Accountants, Business Administrators, Social Workers, Financial Planners, Lawyers, Real Estate Brokers and Insurance Agents. After they pass the criminal background checks. I will discuss compensation and incentives with them behind closed doors.

My team will assist me in creating both a Nonprofit Cooperative Organization and a For Profit Service Based Business on the same premises in order to make my organization effective and successful for years to come.

1. A social service component

2. A Spiritual component (optional for secular people)
