    Propers due to Alkebulan

    Alkebulan has gotten the ball rolling on the letter writing campaign.

    He has sent letters to seven political prisoners and has already received three replies.

    The rest of us need to follow Alkebulan's example come on with the follow-through! (me included)



    Thank You Brother Alkebulan for showing the way!

    $$RICH$$,

    I missed this date, but there will be more, lol. Look, take a read of this link I have provided below and let me know what you think. In stead of going to give the brothers something all the time, we can require something of them.

    Here is the point, in every prison facility, there is at least one brother that has studied the law. Why not take a camera and note book with you, get permission, and lets interview the brother and use that information in the new Black Law Forum, in the Teenage Forum and anywhere else to enlighten our peeps......

    Here is the link: http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=588736&postcount=9

    I'll see what i can do and what's allowed inside , but i'm almost sure cell phones / cameras
    tape recorders won't be allowed less you are some high offical or media covering
    a case .
    Maybe it can be done and hopefully some way maybe we have to collect infomation
    through mail/letters and so forth.

    $$RICH$$,

    Its worth a try, for real. Here is what I will do also brother. From my end, I will begin to do some research in finding out whats needed to be arranged for an in-mate interview, even if it takes some media coverage. As Destee.com wanting to do some good in the communities, we just might be able to pull it off Rich.

    This site is old enough with an Internet presence to attract some attention and bring something good back to our Hoods. They just might like that. Lets share this with the brotherhood of Brothers Chat and see what our bros. say.

    If we can begin to do something like this in St. Louis and Los Angeles, and Chicago, we may be able to start a chain reaction.


    Its all for our Youth that need the attention, as well as repeat offenders.
