November 5, 2017, 6:00pm - November 5, 2017, 7:00pm

Our community is gathering on Sunday, for a very special family-friendly event. If you're not there we’ll miss you! This will be one of 100+ gatherings happening all over the country. #RacialJusticeBK, Children of Promise, and the Movement for Black Lives’ Electoral Justice Project are joining forces for a family friendly program; where we’ll eat, talk, learn, and grow together. We’re just going to come as we are. We’re going to get to know a bit more about the political system that affects our whole lives. We’re also going to get a start at knowing how we can effect that system. We have more power than we think. We just need to claim it! Our goal is to start to listen to our own voices. We trust that we know what are needs and possible solutions are. We trust we can learn. This is real talk, with real folk, about the real issues facing us. Please join us in “Our Voice = Our Power” at the Children of Promise, 54 MacDonough St, Brooklyn, NY 11216. Sunday, November 5th, 2017. 6 pm - 8 pm. Light food and beverages will be served. You can RSVP at RacialJusticeBK@Gmail.com Or just show up. Everyday we live with decisions made by other folks. In every way our neighborhoods are being changed in ways that don’t consider us. All the time our communities are dealing with problems and opportunities, yet we don’t get heard. This meeting of friends, family and allies can start to make a difference. Folk we already know and folk we will soon know are coming together. Check our Facebook for updates. Follow us on Twitter @racialjusticebk and Instagram @racialjusticebk. Let us know how we can work together to get the word out. Invite your friends and family. We’re holding the space for you. Come claim your place. Come for your kids. Come for yourself. Come change your community...and change the future.

Excerpt from my book—"What We Blacks Need To Do”—The Black church’s role in education—If your church (you) are accused of being Christlike, is there enough evidence for a jury to find it (you) guilty? Most Black churches have a well-built exterior with unique design furniture, accessories and climate controlled interiors. It is a very expensive, under¬- used, “consecrated” building. It is used on Sunday, Bible study on Wednesdays, weddings, and funerals. Some have a church hall with a full commercial size kitchen for serving and sometimes selling dinners. The tables in the hall would be perfect for the neighborhood children to do their homework on and receive tutoring. The kitchen can be used to serve our children a good tasty low-fat snack and to teach them how to cook simple food items. This would be a safe place for our children to spend quality time together without TV, games or cellphones. Being in their own neighborhood would eliminate the need for transportation. The parents could walk to the church to pick up the children and the older children could walk the younger ones home. This would give the older children some responsibility and the younger ones a new friend. This would cut way down on “bullying” because all children would have a big brother and sister. The public-school system will never bring back praying in school, so if the churches do not accept any government grants, they can have prayer and read scripture in their Monday-Friday after school/ tutoring program. My namesake, St. James, the Apostle, said in James 2: 14 (paraphrased) If you proclaim faith, sing all five verses of gospel songs and pray long prayers, but never lift a finger to help somebody who can’t return your favor, or give a ten-dollar donation, you are worthless. I close with two questions for you that only you can answer truthfully, is your church guilty or not guilty of being Christlike? What will you do to help save our children? ...
