A ONE MAN BLACK POWER MOVEMENT! (ARTICLE)

        Shawn Wolf with event staff.

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

  A throwback to the days of Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey, local bay area activist out of East Oakland California, Shawn Wolf hopes to accomplish with his charity the “Bay area black community” what his two predecessors could not, and that’s group economics and a thriving middle class in the African-American community.

On his website Wolf states: “The Bay Area Black Community is dedicated to the economic empowerment, education & training of the Black African extended family…. including our history; with emphasis on re-establishing our kinship to one another! ”

Wolf’s organization is only about a year old and they have already started to impact the economically disenfranchised East Oakland black community, holding their first Town Hall meeting and Job Fair at William Chapel Missionary Baptist Church February 28, 2015 , with plans for a second event on May 16, 2015.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH! ( POEM )

image

FEBRUARY SHOULD NOT BE KEPT AS THE MONTH OF AFRICAN HISTORY

OUR GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS FROM ANCIENT NUBIA TO U.N.I.A OF MARCUS GARVEY

SHOULD NOT BE KEPT AS A MYSTERY

THE CONSEQUENCE TO DO SO

11 MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR

HAVE BLACKS FEARING ALL THEY CAN ASPIRE TO GO IS INTO THE SPORTS, DRUG OR HOE GAME

AS OUR ANCESTORS TUBMAN, TO X, BOW THEIR HEAVENLY HEADS IN DREAD AND SHAME

SINCE THEY KNOW THE SYSTEM IS STILL BEING USED TO KEEP THE NEGRO YOUTH DUMB AND UNCOUTH

TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO CORPORATE EARNINGS

DEPOSITED IN CORPORATE PRISON BOOTHS!

FROM THE GUTTER TO THE PROMISELAND:(POEM)

THE GUTTER IS WHERE I STAND, THE PROMISE LAND IS WHERE I STRIVE TO BE

WITH A MIND FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS

THAT I WANT TO MAKE REAL AND NOT JUST FANTASY

MY FOREFATHERS MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., MALCOLM X, KWAME NKRUMAH AND JERRY RAWLINGS, DECADES AGO FOUGHT FOR MY PEOPLE AND ME

BUT ALL I SEE IN THE STREETS IS THUGGERY AND GREED

EVEN IF I CAN’T SAVE ALL MY PEOPLE

I WILL MAKE SURE MY FOUR FATHERS DREAMS LIVE THROUGH ME

WE HAVE COME FROM THE SLAVE HOUSE, THE COLONIAL MASTER’S HOUSE, THE CRACKHOUSE AND NOW THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

AND STILL I GET PROFILED BY COPS AND SECURITY WHEN I LEAVE MY HOUSE

EVEN THOUGH I WORK SMART AND STUDY LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL SPARTAN, YET SOCIETY STILL LOOKS AT ME JUST LIKE ANOTHER TRAYVON MARTIN

JUST LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BLACK MAN TO SHOOT, WALKING WHILE BLACK I GUESS WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE!image
