White Power v Black Power: Don’t Get it Twisted

During the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, a number of radical groups, like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), have risen from the shadows.  The American people are now calling this group “White Power” activists, the “alt-right,” White supremists and White Nationalists.  This terminology for White dominance is used interchangeably.  I am not going to attempt to describe the differences among the groups above but I want to differentiate between these groups and groups that were or are part of the…See More

About Me:(Generous response attract more interest)
I am a longtime activist who is President and CEO of Sokoya Enterprises.

I am a certified diversity trainer, a mediator, an infant massage instructor, and a facilitator of discussion groups on bigotry.

As Executive Director of the Children’s Trust Fund, I was the driving force in development of Parents Anonymous® parent mutual support groups in the District of Columbia.

The Shame of the Civil Rights Movement

Posted on January 12, 2017 at 10:41am 3 Comments

Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement are colluding with media to rewrite history – yes, rewrite history.  Both entities assert that all of Black activism during the 1960s and 1970s was part of the Civil Rights Movement.  They have even coined the period, the Civil Rights Era.  There were other movements going on during the same period as the Civil Rights Movement.  Just as (some say) the Civil Rights Movement is the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther…

Financial Revolution???
