A fascinating story A Class of Leaders. Written by my guest Joseph Sutton. Listen in on a very uplifting conversation. www.joesutt.com
They killed off the real black leaders. They pushed drugs into their bodies and into their communities. There are black organizations yet which ones are real and which ones are in fact funded and ran by the Government. Who had a hand in kiiling the Black Panther Leader, Malcolm X, what happend to Marcus Garvey, Noble Dre Ali. Whats really going on with Jesse Jackson. We have some new comers on the scene. How come these bruthas seem more real and more with the agenda to help our people than these so called black Preachers and organizational leaders ?
