Ep. 5 – What is Black Culture???🤔✊🏾😵

I have come to the conclusion that change is the process of altering habits of culture (I will explain this further in a later blog post). Change is something that is often a part of any solution. However, I have found that Change is never defined clearly. It is like we are just supposed to know what the hell Change looks like. So, after doing some deep thinking, research, and debating, I have concluded that cultures must pivot to see the desired outcomes you want. Therefore, we must define what culture is before we try to change anything.tumblr_n4xmpqzczb1qf3vf9o2_r2_1280

Culture:
A set of behaviors, beliefs, concepts, linguistics, experiences and expectations, which are scribed to a social (people, place, or thing) collective to meet the (direct or indirect) agreed upon wants and needs.

Christopher Everett is a writer, film director and film producer from Laurinburg, North Carolina. He has experience in lm, graphic design, marketing and advertising.

The Wilmington Massacre was a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November 10, 1898 in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a coup d’état in the United States that left countless numbers of African-American citizens dead and exiled from the city. This event was the springboard for the white supremacy movement and Jim Crow segregation throughout the state of North Carolina and the American South.

 

“Wilmington on Fire” gives a compelling historical and present day look at this event showing how the violent overthrow of an existing government not only cemented white supremacy in the city of Wilmington and the state of North Carolina but also throughout the United States of America.

Ep.15 – Mohammed Speaks👊🏾🎤🔥

Mohammed S. Luwemba is a graduate of Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan where he attained his bachelors in Political Science. In 2013 Mr. Luwemba graduated from John Marshall Law School in Atlanta Georgia.While in college Mr. Luwemba started an event titled the State of the Black Youth Convention which he produced for 8 consecutive years. The convention addressed socioeconomic issues effecting Black youth throughout the United States, and included guest speakers such as ICE T, Spike Lee, Afeni Shakur, John Singleton and Dr. Michael Eric Dyson. As a result of the convention, Mr. Luwemba began getting requests to speak to various youth groups in juvenile facilities and group homes throughout Detroit about political/socioeconomic empowerment. Mohammed also began making strategic partnerships with other grassroots organizers within Detroit who wanted to partner with Mohammed and the the National Black Operations Business Association, a community based investment firm Mohammed started in 1999 for the purpose of creating a foundation of economic empowerment within the Black community. Five years later he started Elite Brother Inc, a non-profit organization with the purpose of reclaiming the image of the Black male, and turning Black boys into Black men one brother at a time.
Mohammed has worked as a Counselor, Treatment Specialist, Case Manager, and volunteer for the past fifteen years in juvenile facilities and the juvenile justice system from Detroit to Atlanta, and has helped dozens of Black male youth transition from incarceration to freedom in a productive manner. http://www.mohammedluwemba.com/
