SORT BY Relevancy
PAID Africa is an community based organization founded to continue the work of Marcus Mosiah Garvey by bringing Africans from the Diaspora home as much need resources for our Motherland.
I have been blessed to be able to sit at the strategic planning table with African ministers tasked with oversight of the development of Africa.
Yet when you sit in a meeting at any one of the African Administrative offices (aka ministries) everyone is represented except we... Africans from the Diaspora.
You will see government representatives from USA, UK, Norway, Denmark, Japan, China, Turkey, Saudi, UN you name it.... nearly every country has an opportunity to influence public policy on the African continent, except the people who stand to benefit from their ancestral inheritance.... Africans
I have therefore dedicated my life to providing a platform for Africans in the diaspora to come home and invest in infrastructure on the African continent.
Pan African Investment 4 Development of Africa seeks to fill the gap by organizing Africans in the Diaspora into one solid body of development professionals committed to the upliftment of our motherland, via grassroots donations to community based projects and volunteer programs where members of the African Diaspora can serve as technical advisors to rural communities, African governments and community based organizations.
Support our humble mission
PAID AFRICA is here to help you develop a plan to repatriate your love, skill sets and financial resources to ensure a brighter future for Africans globally.
When you hear the word “Transylvania,” what do you think about? Do you envision creaking doors, helpless maidens, howling wolves and flapping bats, caped noblemen with vicious fangs, thunder and lightning booming down on a desolate castle? Do you envision werewolves? Vampires? Bram Stoker? Dracula? Bela Lugois? Vlad the Impaler?
The real Transylvania is a daylight fantasy filled with high altitude roads, lost-in-time villages and sun-drenched plains dotted with ancient churches and castle ruins.
And, thanks to Claudia Palfi and Adventure Motorcycle Tours you can experience Transylvania and other unique destinations on the back of a BMW.

“The criticism certainly stung King, but it also highlighted King’s seeming reluctance to accept that northern, urban blacks simply would not tolerate without fighting back the type of treatment suffered by African Americans in the South. The reason had more to do with numbers than with temperament. the urban blacks of the North lived in tall, crowded structures in all black communities which only a few whites—mostly policemen—entered each day. The ghetto, with its numerous alleyways and abandoned buildings, was akin to bushland in Vietnam, making “guerrilla warfare” against policemen possible. southern Blacks, on the other hand were geographically and spatially separated, affording less chance for quick assembly in instances where quick, decisive action was needed.
Around August 8, The FBI interviewed housing activist Jesse Gary about his alleged role in the riots. When Gary denied involvement, the FBI agents asked him wether black nationalists such as Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad might have been paid by “foreign agents” to incite the riots. Specifically, the agents asked if that’s how Malcolm X was able to afford his current trip to Africa.” Judas Factor

MALCOLM X THE MAN IN RETROSPECT PART 1
Preface to PART 1 : Soon after his assassination on February 21, 1965, Malcolm X became the subject of a number of articles appraising his career and his effect on the black freedom movement. Most of these articles were too hastily written and showed no understanding of what Malcolm X and his mission meant to his people. The evaluation of Malcolm X is related to the evolution of black America in the years since the Montgomery bus boycott set in motion the great human drama now being called "the BLACK REVOLUTION IN THE UNITED STATES."
After the death of Malcolm X, a number of writers discussed how well they they "knew" him. Some of these new "authorities" on Malcolm X would not come near him when he was alive.
As we know and have read Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. met at the halls of the legislature. For the Civil Rights Bill more than 50 years ago, the vote on the Floor of The Senate and the House. Today I visited theses two same halls one directly across from the other. They must have been well prepared for the day because it is quite trying. The man we all knew as Malcolm X is being described by other writers like George Breitman the text says' thus according to Dr: John Hendrick Clark
In his pamphlet "Malcolm X The Man and His Ideas"...............George Breitman gives the following description of Malcolm ' s appeal as speaker: His speaking style was unique--plain, direct like an arrow, devoid of flowery trimming. He used metaphors and figures of speech that were lean and simple, rooted in the ordinary daily experience of his audiences.
"Internal differences within the Nation of Islam forced me out of it. I did not leave of my own free will. But now that it has happened I intend to make the most of it. Now that I have more independence of action. I intend to use a more flexible approach toward working with others to get a solution to this problem I do not pretend to be a divine man, but I do believe in divine guidance, divine power, and in the fulfillment of divine prophecy. I am not educated, nor am I an expert in any particular field.....but I am sincere an my sincerity is my credential."
Tonight we begin our new book, since it is getting close to the day of Malcolm X's Birthday May 19, 1925. We are going to read various essays about Malcolm, and what he meant to others what his courageous rebellion accomplished for the people he loved unconditionally.
"Introduction-The man best known as Malcolm X lived three distinct and interrelated lives under the respective names Malcolm Little, Malcolm X, and El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. Any honest attempt to understand to understand the total man must begin with some understanding of the significant components that sent into his making.
The racist society that produced And killed Malcolm X is responsible for what he was and fro destroying what he could have been. He had the greatest leadership potential of any person to emerge directly deform the black proletariat in this country. In another time under different circumstances he might have been a king--and a good one. He might have made a nation and he might have destroyed one.
He was a creation of the interplay of a powerful and conflicting forces in mid-century America. No other country or combination of forces could have shaped him the way he was an ultimately destroyed him with such unique ruthlessness." MALCOLM X THE MAN AND HIS TIMES" edited by JOHN HENRIK CLARK"
"In June, 1965, the New York field office had targeted another friend of Malcolm X for neutralization under its "Disruption Program." At the time, the Bureau was trying to sour the relationship between Malcolm X 's Organization of Afro-American Unity and the Socialist Workers party headed by Malcolm X's friend Clifton DeBerry. in a memo to Hoover dated August 25, 1965, the New York Field Office took credit for creating hostilities between the two Organizations."
