    Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited, more commonly called HARYOU, was a social activism organization founded by Dr. Kenneth Clark in 1962 and directed by Cyril DeGrasse Tyson (father of astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and founding member of the 100 Black Men of America). The group worked to increase opportunities in education and employment for young blacks in Harlem. It also was designed to teach residents of Harlem how to work with governmental agencies to meet their demands.

    Powerful brother, who gives back to the community, and remembers his roots, always has time to talk to school children on their trips to the Planetarium, when he is not busy

    Sit your kids down in front of this interview.. Make them watch it.. break it up into parts if you have to.. but it's not just bout Astrophysics.. it's also about black intelligence on display and outside the usual context of race conversations.

    El klum al shil.. I am part of the all and the all is part of me. He sounds like the book of the living. Giving praise and acknowledgement to the entities that exisit before us and exisit within us now.
