My Birthday wish is that everyone on my friends list and everyone in my social groups would purchase my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition and read my story. My book is the foundation of my business, my book is just the beginning it’s what I am trying to build in our inner cities of Chicago and beyond is what I want to be remembered for. It’s my hope that through my story I could recruit brave and smart people within the United States to come to Chicago and work with me and Sister Rena with turning my vision into a reality. The proceeds from my book sell would allow me to hire qualified individuals to assist me with the daily operation of my Christian business the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago.
What African Americans fail to realize is that it takes a team to make a dream work. 26 years established black organizations have rejected the vision God has given me to share with them. The only thing at this point which is preventing me from starting my Christian business 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
To help eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families that want to utilize our programs and services. GRCAI will consist of a nonprofit organization and also a for profit organization which will operate under 5 separate functions within the African American community.
1. A social service component
2. A Spiritual component (optional for secular people)
3. A Political component
4. An Entertainment component
5. An Entrepreneur component
The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute is about bring Black Wall into 10 cities through out the Midwest. GRCAI will play a vital role in the community through our economic approach, community empowerment, e-commerce, business creation and finance. GRCAI will comprise a unified body of people working towards a more prosperous outcome for the African American community.
I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement in 1991 on a site called Gopher to help raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America, in order for me to connect with other like-minded individuals who share my concern to form a legitimate coalition across the United States and around the globe for my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos starting in Chicago. My goal was to recruit brave and smart like minded individuals to help me turn my virtual Christian organization into a real business the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago (GRCAI).
It’s my hope that GRCAI would become the Hub in the Midwest for emerging artists and upcoming Christian entrepreneurs. I am seeking 30 individuals within the United States who have read my story and have the expertise that I am looking for which are as follows: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist. I am also looking for legitimate artists such as film directors, producers, actors, stage managers, fundraisers, technical directors and marketers who can assist me with the daily operation of my business. I will discuss compensation and incentives with them behind closed doors.
I call upon Millennials, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean, Non-black sympathizers, all Christian denominations, moderate Muslims, and secular people who are interested in working with me in turning my vision into a reality purchase my book and read my story if you agree make yourself known to me I provide all my contact information in my book.
My vision for Africa I call upon my international friends who reside in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda to encourage your family and friends who live abroad in Europe, Canada and in the United States to purchase my book and read my story.
Once I have my African Immigrants in place then I will have them to assist me to expand GRCAI to 10 countries in Africa. We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (NGO) Non- government organization. We will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and our sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, and most of all help improve the African economy. In time, we will expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands.
GRCAI is a Christian socialist organization. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. We will focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology.
Jesus told us to focus on the lease of these in society according to Matthew 25:35–40. He also commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Luke 4:18–19. We will be committed to the healing ministry of Jesus by showing compassion to inner city youth and their families which will promote dignity to the people and community we will serve.
Our programs and services will have a social impact around the world. GRCAI initiatives will amplify a global community of emerging artists who will use their creativity as a force for positive impact.
Igniting creativity in our young people:
We will offer interactive space where our students create digital media to tell their stories through our films and stage plays. Our programs will teach underrepresented youth about coding. GRCAI will help young adults prepare to work in the tech fields.
Our education initiatives will inspire creativity in young people. GRCAI is ready to train the next generation of digital media makers and coders so they can innovate, help grow our economies and make a real social impact. Our initiative will provide opportunities for emerging artist to connect, share, and increase the visibility and impact of their work. GRCAI we support, connect, and amplify their creativity.
Discover fresh and powerful creative work and connect with leading arts and culture organizations. Participates will learn new skills, and push the boundaries of their creativity.
GRCAI is an urban institution which reflects the economic, racial, cultural, and educational diversity in Chicago. This diversity means our academic programs will reflect a variety of perspectives which will enrich the teaching and learning experience in order to prepare our students for multiculturalism which reflects our society. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute is committed to strengthening and empowering the black community and the black family for them to reach their greatest potential.
Our goal is to promote a more just and inclusive society by strengthening low-income, primarily single black families through skill-building, access to critical resources, advocacy and collaborative action. Improve the overall community by providing an inclusive facility which will be a symbol of hope and progress in the African American community. Finally, GRCAI will someday compete with major companies like Amazon, Apple, Microsoft Network and Walmart.
The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will be membership based and private in order for us to weed out people who don’t care about inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. 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. GRCAI is open to all ordinary law-abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
