sIgnotheTimes BlogTalk Radio PROF CARL TONE JONES THE INDEPENDENCE DAY PROJECT JOINS QUEEN TAHIYRAH TO SPEAK ON HIS CURRENT PROJECT AND WHAT ABOUT US? "What About Us?" began as a workshop that Carl Tone Jones created to address the plight of black adolescents who were considered at-risk youths struggling to assess their social constructs as they related to morality, value structures and critical thinking. The motivation behind the workshop was due to the untimely death of a close relative at the hands of another youth here in the streets of North Philadelphia. But even before that unfortunate incident Brother Jones had taken an interest in securing a role in the preservation and uplift of the black community by working with youths and teaming with like minded people to form coalitions to battle the systems of white supremacy. Hopefully, this site will become a place of strength, information sharing and strategic creation as we move forward in these challenging times.
