This is pretty much what I could come up with sans any in-depth research. I have a short weekend so I will try to unearth some hope against all odds.

www.copechurchesie.org/

Speaking of odd, strange, curious and more so inexplicably questionable things of dubious intent, ever wonder what the "Caucazoids" who view our numerous (BLACK PRIDE FORUMS) and between spouting liberal one liners about socially significant issues like legal and illegal dope use under the guise of this, that or the other to legitimize their sinning but imprison us for following their lead, excessive libation of drink, crime and punishment, sexual proclivities and other race based horrors they as the global dominant force behind our historically planned extinction at their collective paws are really doing, thinking and more so planning?

Can any Black citizen of America spell COINTELPRO?
I grew up as a child in the 60s a teen in the 70s and young adult in the 80s, I do not recall hearing about modern day lynchings and mind you before the internet, the Black community nationally had over 7 times as much grassroots based print media nd TV shows like Like It Is, Black Journal and the McCreary report, all since the 70s , that would have reported such incidents if they did occur!
See, the Black Panther party, the real Black Panther party where always in the community, not just as a detterent to police brutality but to lynching as well, so all due respect, where has this so called "New Black Panther Party been for the past 2 years, since that Nut Job racist , has been in the White House and Black folks catching all kinds of physical and economic hell??
And not just then but for a minute now , for instance, the real Black Panther Party would have had crowd funding from Black churches and their offices in every major city, to get the 50 thousand of the Black community, under the sink and shower filters by now https://atlantablackstar.com/2015/03/26/8-black-panther-party-programs-that-were-more-empowering-than-federal-government-programs/
As well as maintained a safe environment for the community , note th article is dated 2015 and does not include the recent lynchings of Black folks in the past 2 years https://rollingout.com/2015/03/21/5-horrific-modern-day-lynchings-blacks-america/

Eh eh, no. They have been working tirelessly for 400 years.



History is only prolog and so needs to be attended to.
Two of the best short summations of the last 50-75 years and what it takes for movements to have any influence on the whole that I've run across.

If you want to join the/a movement Ndugu look around locally I can guaranty something is happening.
Let's just say on looking around you find only a Uhuru group, or The Nation of Islam, or Black Lives Matter, or the New Black Panthers or only an outlier Wobbly group at the university to name just a few...... you don't have to agree with their entire philosophy to join them for our shared common cause of equality and justice.
In the end we/they are all fighting for the same thing. Don't worry all those small and large philosophical questions will shake out if the eyes are kept on the prize.

Look around locally. You'll find the answer to your question.
I want to see a change in the conditions of the lives of Black people! There have been thousands of little groups doing this and that , since the 90s , yet our situation is getting worse, so what does that tell you???

Ndugu your passion is evident. I feel there is much to be learned from you. Destee would truly be enriched if you started your own blog. Think about it.

That things are getting worse and things will probably only get worser.

they say alot of things, but only White supremacy wants to tell Black folks that collective effort is not important !
I dont know if you have noticed , but they have increased unity and attacks on Civil Rights and physical attacks, while we have less unity, in the past 2 years!
Maybe thats the problem, they think like a collective, while we talk about "well why dont you as one person do something" without knowing what that person has done and been doing for the past 30 years!

So don't listen to white supremacy.
Listen to the thousands of little groups doing this and that. They ain't do it for fun. They do in it because it makes a difference in the place where they live.
You think it's only worth while if what they do is nation or world wide? Where do you think the Black Panthers would have gone if when they started they thought it only worthwhile if it be done nation wide?
I'll tell ya, they'd still be kick'n around the street sip'n 45's on the door stoop complaining about this and that and what should be done.

A President that looked like us gave us 8 years, 8 years to prepare a just in case plan just in case another racist nut job, millionaire , got into office after his term was over, and tried to destroy the Civil rights Dr King worked hard to get for us just like those 4 , did !
Had we done that , we would not be having this convo, or seeing the hell the Black community has been catching in the past 2 years, we would have been prepared for it , and had a national protection from it
