  • I was just thinking...Money! Wealth, Riches and Prosperity.

    in Education

    The differences between riches, wealth, and prosperity.


    Black Friday came and went I the midst of protests from the injustices perpetuated on black people in general and black men in particular. Protests were held at Malls and department stores and there was an attempt to protest the Thanksgiving Day parade…and believe it or not it worked! The projected profits from black Friday fell 11% and sent the stock markets reeling.  Most of it was black dollars the buying power that has been underestimated in the system [and you know when I say the system it is the system of white supremacy and its economic component] and misunderstood by our community.


    “In 2014, $50.9 billion was spent during the 4-day Black Friday weekend, down 11% from last year. While approximately 133 million U.S. consumers shopped during the same period, down 5.2% from last year's 141 million.”


    I have to see numbers on paper to understand the power we have as black consumers because we have been told so many times that our black dollars are useless.


    But the Nielsen and the National Newspaper Publishers Association writes this:


    “Black buying power continues to increase. It is currently $1 trillion, but is forecast to increase up to $1.3 trillion by 2017. Population growth and increased educational attainment are key factors in the uptick in Black consumer power according to the “Resilient, Receptive and Relevant African-American Consumer 2013 Report.”


    Lasana K. Mack, founder and executive director of APPEAL, Inc., based in Washington, D.C.


    “We should begin to spend a substantial portion of those dollars with Black-owned businesses; we should be depositing substantial amounts of those dollars in Black-owned banks.”

  • From the Front Porch with Professor Carl Tone Jones

    in Culture

    A detailed look into the plight of the African Diaspora here in America and throughout the world.


    Upon obtaining his Master's Degree in Social Studies-Citizenship, Jones worked vigorously in the Philadelphia Public School system. As a professor, he also teaches courses in the area of Community Leadership and Humanities. An accomplished lecturer, writer and public speaker, Jones has become a beacon of hope within the community as he strives to continue his focus concerning the improvement of the socio-economic and political conditions of the African born Americans as well as descendants of the African Diaspora. He continues to work with at-risk youths helping them to develop and utilize critical thinking skills through his workshops and lectures.  This show will explore the issues of our times as we continue to expose the obstacles in our way of cultural, political and socio-economical liberation from the clutches of systemic racism white supremacy. As Dr. Neely Fuller once stated, "If you do not understand white supremacy everything else you know will only serve to confuse you."

  • The Half Has Never Been Told with Edward E. Baptist, Ph.D.

    in History

    The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism


    Historian Edward E. Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.


    Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery’s end—and created a culture that sustains America’s deepest dreams of freedom.


    Edward E. Baptist is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and House Professor and Dean at the Carl Becker House at Cornell University.
