    From The Plantation to the Penitentiary: The Destruction of the Black Family

    in History

    A two part panel discussion that links how slavery and prisons have contributed to many of the problems facing Black Families today.  The discussion will focus on much of the current  research presented on this subject.  How did slavery and the prison system effect the Black Family?  Why were the systems implemented in American life?  Why have these destructive forces been allowed to exist so long in Black life?  The panel will explore these questions and others in order to suggest an approach to build a postive Black Family agenda.

     Some say that Huey is in the past and that he has no value to the Panther ethic yet they praise others who did not lay the foundation. Like Stokely Carmichael and Kahllid Muhammad, but I say to the 50,000 Panthers who are living and assended this will never happen.  You can kill a man but you can never kill his ideas nor can you kill a REVOLUTION.  SO, " LET US HOLD HIGH THE BANNER OF INTER-COMMUNALISM AND THE INVINCIBLE THOUGHTS OF HUEY P. NEWTON, MINISTER OF DEFENSE AND SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY


    The Minister of defense and Supreme Commander of the Black Panther Party, Huey P. Newton’s message At Boston College November 18, 1970


    Power to the people, brothers and sisters. I would like to thank you for my presence here tonight because you are responsible. I would be in a maximum security penitentiary if it weren’t for the power of the people. So you’re responsible, and only you. "

    Nicholas Conlon The Last American Poet:

    in Visual Arts

    Nicholas Conlon was born Nicholas Daniel Farelli in 1975. Without elaborating on that too much; He was born in the infirmary of a penitentiary in a "town" that didn't exist. 10 years later he was adopted by his step-father Patrick Joseph Conlon. Before the adoption Nicholas grew up in Chicago raised by a single mother, his grandma and grandpa and older sister of 7 years 364 days. He has been painting and writing for over 30 years. Growing up in Chicago, Nicholas learned everything on the streets in a meat and potato, beer and shot, Guns, Gangs and Athletics type of atmosphere.


    Nicholas was also well educated in the Catholic and public school system including a brief stint in a Benedictine Boarding school in Arkansas, finally finishing his education majoring in Theater at Southern Illinois University. The type of work Nicholas Conlon does is beautiful from afar but up close it's dirty, torn, ripped 2 dimensional, back slash demented and it's all over the board. Not one theme, not one style, not one medium. "If I could talk like I write, if I could sing like I dance, if I could paint like I screw, I probably wouldn't be here right now giving my own artist's statement.


    I'd pay some slag a few hundred quid to make me look good. But I can't.


    So you got this. If I could only act the way I imagined" - Nicholas Conlon The last American poet, part autobiography, part Cadillac, part Yugo, all Nicholas Conlon 2013 If anything is misspelled; It isn't If any questions go unmarked; They are duly noted Nobody has been misquoted If there are any missing exclamation points And/or periods That's it. I'm done with this one Go capitalize yourselves - Nicholas Conlon

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    For those of you who have forgotten the meaning of UNITY, this is a reminder :


    In 1925, despite an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, Garvey was sent to the Atlanta penitentiary. His The Garvey Letter From an Atlanta Prison is dated February 10, 1925, and excerpted below as follows:


    Fellow Men of the Negro Race Greetings


    I am delighted to inform you, that your humble servant is as happy in suffering for you and our cause as is possible under the circumstances of being viciously outraged by a group of plotters who have connived to do their worst to humiliate you through me, in fight for real emancipation and African Redemption. 


    I do not want at this time to write anything that would make it difficult for you to meet the opposition of your enemy without my assistance. Suffice to say that the history of the outrage shall form a splendid chapter in the history of Africa redeemed. When black man will no longer be under the heels of others, but have a civilization and culture of their own.


    The whole affair is a disgrace, and the whole black world knows it. We shall not forget. Our day may be fifty, a hundred or two hundred years ahead, let us watch, work, and pray, for the civilization of injustice is bound to crumble and bring destruction down upon the heads of the unjust. 


    My work is just begun, and when the history of my suffering is complete, then the future generations of the Negro will have in their hands the guide by which they shall know the “sins” of the twentieth century. I, and I know you, too, believe in time, and we shall wait patiently for two hundred years, if need be, to face our enemies through our prosperity."
