Harmbee! The fourth night of Kwanzaa has arrived we thank God for the ancestors we are alive!
Cooperative Economics=Ujamma, what can we do if we all come toether? Can we build a comm-unity!
Can we come and unite in economic growth and development.
We can account in our hood where the money was being spent.
Ujamma, hands dip in waves of cotton as we share crop our way to the "Great up North". Ujamma, before freedom the underground railroad fed, clothed and educated a new unseen nation.

Ujamma! Cooperative economics taught us to create jobs and legitimate hustles and sign notes and buy property acquire
limited partnerships and Corporations as we become a new
consuming Nation... that is not the cooperative economics that
our forefathers had in mind ...cooperate in creating econmics,
not in consuming alone...we must remember or we are doomed
to repeat, lest we again have waves of cotton at our feet.
Buying the Basketball team instead of being bought by the
team. Cooperative economics owning the haircare company
instead of keeping them in Rolls Royces and Mini Coopers.
No, that was no blooper!

Ujamma! on the fourth night the third red candle is lit representing the blood sweat and tears that it takes to create a community create cooperative economics is to bleed as though in war...for your
very life...for this impoverished strife. The blood of birth as we
create this new evolving nation, Cooperative Econmics as
we work shoulder to shoulder. Together we are everything
apart we are just alone!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
