The date is confusing about the harvest festival ? Also the place in los angles, where ?
Time , Date and Venue ?
1 st Saturday week of August or second Sat. I can not seem to find it anywhere. I want this to be a success ! Please help.
Here is a copy of of the pdf about the event that was on his powernomics website:
Dr. Claud Anderson Calls for a National Black Holiday:
Harvest Festival Day
Dr. Claud Anderson has issued a call for his PowerNomics® supporters to take action. He
calls on them to take local initiative to support a national Harvest Festival Day by organizing
events in their own neighborhoods this August 10.. The purpose is to generate a national Black
social cohesiveness and sense of community that inspires all Americans to recognize and
appreciate the unique role that Black Americans played as the socioeconomic engine that drove
the building of this nation, but instead of being recognized have been discarded. The unique
contributions and achievements of Native Black Americans unify them. They deserve an annual,
special festive day just like Jews have Passover, Hispanics have a Cinco de Mayo, the Irish have
St. Patrick’s Day, White Americans have Fourth of July, gays have Pride Day, and Germanic
immigrants have Oktoberfest. An annual Harvest Festival Day would represent the positive, the
exceptionality of Black Americans and serve as a platform to rediscover who they are, where
they are and where they ought to be headed. Local Black communities could renew their faith
and trust in each other, build and support their own businesses, and become politically and
economically competitive in our competitive society.
It is now harvest time for an abandoned labor class whose members were denied their
freedom, humanity, just compensation for their labor, but worse, were even denied the right to
enjoy the benefits that their suffering and labor produced. Harvest is from the Old English word,
meaning ‘autumn,’ a season for reaping and gathering the yield from one’s labor. Five hundred
years of institutionalized slavery, Jim Crow Segregation, and integration, made Black Americans
the stepping stone to the American Dream for others. An endless flow of immigrants have
entered this nation seeking unearned economic benefits, rights and privileges long denied a
subordinated Black under-class. There is no better time, than the autumn of 2019, for Black
Americans to come together and claim the results of their labor, suffering and accomplishments
that others have long enjoyed. Black Americans need a Harvest Festival Day, in which they can
gather with family and friends, rebuild their physical and business communities and schools,
learn new codes of appropriate group-based behavior and accountability, begin practicing
group-based economics and politics, celebrate their sports/entertainment accomplishments, and
generate new pride in their own racial identity.
Dr. Anderson proposes that Harvest Festival Day be an annual event celebrated at the
beginning of the harvesting season, nationally and in local communities on the Second Saturday
in August, regardless of the calendar date. Local organizing committees should seek the
participation of all Black businesses, civil rights organizations, political entities, schools and
community organizations. Black Americans must regain a sense of social cohesiveness that was
stripped from them during the 500 years of slavery and Jim Crow semi-slavery.
To aid in popularizing this annual Harvest Festival Day, specific goals and suggested
local festival activities will be spelled out on Dr. Anderson’s up-coming YouTube channel,
entitled, “Dr. Claud Anderson,” Dr. Boyce Watkins’ regular Business School Webinars, and
Carl Nelson’s Daily radio program, on National Radio Network.
I am looking more into the event myself…
