    What's up everyone!!
    Hey everyone consider yourselfs lucky tonight.
    Tonight I will give you guys the first look at a screenplay. I have been working on and off on. This is and idea I have been thinking about for along time. Eventually I would like to make it into a movie.

    This is not much and it is a rough draft. Just want to give you guys and idea of what I think about.


    Opening Scene

    March 17, 2058

    Narrator: My name is William B. Scott

    Commander of the 13th Battalion African Liberation Army

    We are at sea on the Indian Ocean headed towards the coast of Kenya

    Our mission is to clear the land of any Chinese outsiders

    Outsiders meaning anyone who is not African. Or anyone against Africans being in full control of our land

    and resources human and natural.

    We have been fighting the Chinese , Japanese, Arabs and Europeans.

    It’s been along war and the retaking of Kenya will be and important victory.

    I look around and on this transport ship I see nothing but brave African men. For some this will be their first

    time in combat.

    I can see the fear and excitement in their eyes. This is what they have been trained for their whole lives.

    They understand the necessary sacrifices they must make as young men.

    A young corporal yells out “ look it’s the beach”,

    We all turn to the starboard side and look out the window to see.

    “The green light indicator is flashing on..”

    Cpt. Scott: Alright men you all remember your orders.. It’s time!

    Let’s make the ancestors proud…

    The commander retracts his face guard and prepares for COMBAT!!!


    Flashback

    Scene II

    “THE BEAUTIFUL VIOLENCE”

    March 17, 2018

    William B Scott is sixteen years old in his African military strategy class…



    Professor Riley: Mr. Scott…Mr. Scott. Hello back here on earth.. We are waiting for your answer…

    William: I’m sorry sir…Wha..Wha..What was the question again Sir?

    The classroom there is very control snickering “laughter”!

    Professor Riley: Well Mr. Scott I hope while you were away you were dreaming of the defeat of our

    Enemies.

    William: Yes sir exactly…

    Professor Riley: You sure it was not that swimsuit model.. In this month issue of “For Blackmen”

    magazine. You have stuck in between your books..

    The classroom there is very control snickering “laughter”!

    Professor Riley: Okay Mr. Scott I will ask you again.

    Uhuru youngblackceo,

    Beautiful my brutha! Be encouraged and steadfast in your writing.

    Just an idea..it would be powerful if the "13th Battalion African Liberation Army" was comprised of sistahs' and brothas' who represented the entire continent and not just one country...demonstrating unity...in fact depending on your timeline, perhaps the colonial lines that divide our motherland would no longer exsist! The vision of Nkrumah and Selassie could be manifested..a united states of Africa (hate to use that expression but hopefully you get the point).

    Alright enough already, let me back off your script..lol

    Can't wait for opening night!

    Uhuru Now!

    What's up Soja!!!
    Actually the mindset of the people will take place long before that.
    A large part of the first act of this film will deal with the complete transforming of black people Consciousness.

    O'yeah brother that dynamic wll definitely be highlighted in the film. Minus the sisters. Can't have the sisters in combat. But believe me when you see how our sisters will be taught and trained in the film. You guys will see..
