    Black Towns vs Marcus Garvey Distinctions

    in Real Estate

    The Black Towns Social Movement was founded primarily by former slaves and it was a successful movement, because several townships were established and several of those communities still exist today.  However the Honorable Marcus Garvey who had up to 2,000,000 followers, but the Black Star Line venture never got off the ground and the membership reduced with no "business system" in place.


    Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss the distinctions between the Black Towns Social Movement and Marcus Garvey, so that we can learn lessons on how we can build and protect an organization.

    The Gettin It In Show: Marcus Garvey a True Inspiration

    in Radio

    By 1919, Marcus Garvey and UNIA had launched the Black Star Line, a shipping company that would establish trade and commerce between Africans in America, the Caribbean, South and Central America, Canada and Africa. At the same time, Garvey started the Negros Factories Association, a series of companies that would manufacture marketable commodities in every big industrial center in the Western hemisphere and Africa.


    In August 1920, UNIA claimed 4 million members and held its first International Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Before a crowd of 25,000 people from all over world, Marcus Garvey spoke of having pride in African history and culture. Many found his words inspiring, but not all. Some established black leaders found his separatist philosophy ill-conceived. W.E.B. Du Bois, a prominent black leader and officer of the N.A.A.C.P. called Garvey, "the most dangerous enemy of the Negro race in America." Garvey felt Du Bois was an agent of the white elite.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Finance

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama

    TALK REAL SOLUTIONS: A critique of Tyonne, Supreme and the Black media

    in Education

    I spoke on TRS (Talk real solutions) for the last time on March 21, 2015.   Why was it the last time. Because the show's hosts refuse to let their emotional rants, and disjointed arguments die.  As opposed to being another place to bring people together who are concerned about the death and destruction of black people, sadly TRS typically is a place to rant, without any tangible solutions. Worse, Tyronne and Supreme, although they do often make great points, allow their emotions and lack of true understanding of History to taint their rants.  Further, they target and BULLY certain callers that may not agree with their (often weak) flawed arguments and proceed to use ad hominem attacks, etc on such callers. How is this related to black media generally. Black media usually (not always ) lacks intellect, stimulation and real organization and professionalism.   And it hates to be critiqued, and has a I AM SUPERIOR complex. Do I have faults. Yes.   But I try to address them, and own up to them.  Sadly TRS, and most black media and hosts, refuse to even back up when their research is limited and their positions flawed. It will be difficult to help empower black people when so many black celebrities, radio hosts, etc live for FAME and bullying as opposed to black power.   I hope that this messages reaches people and that Tyronne and Supreme decide to grow up and be more civil Until then, I refuse to waste time on TRS, even though there are still some very good people that go there to chat, I refuse to be driven into disjointed discussions, and limited intellectual dialog.   I will continue to seek ways to ensure that black people, any oppressed group of humans, get justice, knowledge, power. I don't have all answers but I sure do my best with the resources at my disposal, to try and help.  POWER TO THE PEOPLE.  Self defense not blind violence and ignorance. Hotep Kenyatta

    Don't worry, we have no idea why we're doing this, either.


    This Sunday is Wrestlemania 31, the biggest event in fake sports of the year. Because we're a bunch of children, we decided to do a podcast dedicate to WWE's premier event. Adam Collyer, Bill DiFilippo, BSD alum Dan Vecellio and CoachingSearch.com Managing Editor/contributor to The Only Colors (the network's Michigan State blog) Chris Vannini got together to talk about this year's card. If you have nothing better to do, we highly recommend listening as the guys get way too giddy about Brock Lesnar.
