    The Bill Egan book on Florence Mill is othe only book written. My son interviewed the author Bill Egan with 21 Questions. The questions and responses are very interesting. '

    There are various other historical articles on the blog: www.weallbe.com. Below are just a few that should get you motiviated to read the others:

    An Artivist on Location: Imani in Tanzania

    A Hero For All Times (Tribute to my Father whom served in WWII and a member of the "Redball Express".)
    www.weallbe.com/2006/07/a_hero_for_all_.html

    Overall, I trying to get you to love and embrace our African American History, rather it be past, present or future. We must obtain our knowledge. As always, "Knowledge is power, if used properly".

    What is Wrong With My People

    Guys, I have been posting on this forum for under a month, as each day go by,. I get sadden, because I want to know "What is Wrong with My People". Is it because we dare not to obtain knowledge? Will we continue to doom our self in jealousy, or self-destructions? As I look through and review many of the postings, I see that a lot of what we do is circulate unfounded rumors and gossips about things just to get a buzz.

    I am told when I see someone succeeding that I wish them well and then know that I too have the opportunity to achieve as well. We must stop trying to analyze only on the haves and what they should or should not receive in opportunies.

    I hope that we would go back into the 60's movement of gaining knowledge, education, self-worth and all of those great Ideologies. Just think where we would be if we did.

    The key to our success is "knowledge". As I always tell everyone I talk to, "knowledge is power if used properly". We must stop being envious of "knowledge" but rather embrace it and learn.

    I have been trying to push the knowledge of how to obtaining education, but yet because my Title is not "breath taking" it gets looked over or because school doesn't start in most cases until August, it is too early to review. We must learn and share now, there are many kids and parents, that just don't know. Let us start passing on valuable information and see how our kids grow.

    I say to my brothers and sisters, you must approach "knowledge" now because the children are our future. We must assist in helping them to stop destroying one another. A mind is a very terrible thing to waste. It doesn't care where you come from, but rather how you use it.

    I have created an infrasture of knowledge on my blog regarding getting prepared, educated and trying to obtain a future. The blog is located at http://www.ctherd.blogspot.com. I even created a 37-page college preparation document that takes you step by step for a 12th grader planning to attend college.

    In addition to getting our education, we must also learn our history and that is what my son is trying to do in his Alternative News blog: W.E. A.L.L. B.E. located at http://www.weallbe.com.

    Please know that I truly love my people and wouldn't try this hard to get the information out if I didn't care. We must go back to the village approach and help all of our children and guide them to the better side of life. Everyone has a gift or talent, but in many cases we don't use them.

    It doesn't matter what the child's financial or economical background is, he or she deserves the chance to make it in life. They should never be doomed before they start. Let us debate on how we are going to solve the problem. It is good to have once a year gathering for the unfortunate, but let us also try to build an infrastructure that will allow them to succeed. In the blog (http://www.ctherd.blogspot.com) is a start, so let us read and digest the knowledge. It does work and I used it personally in my preparation for my kids.

    In closing, please don't take my posting as a negative, but know that "I believe in us and the impossible", let us start obtaining knowledge and sharing with others.

    May you be blessed abundantly....
