Urban America 2010 to the World! -Part I.

Happy Tuesday! Needless to say, last week was a busy one; Apologies for not writing sooner. Did you have an opportunity to view the website suggested last week? Did you get to attend and hear from the U. S. Secretary of Education, Mr. Arne Duncan, the popular gent, Mr. Fonzsworth Bentley or the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Mrs. Kathleen Sebelius?

Perhaps you heard from Bishop Charles E. Blake, Presiding Bishop of the Church of God In Christ, (COGIC). America may not be your country of residence and this may not be your usual site to view; but it is full of links to information that may assist in a cause you may be working on. So no worries, if you didn't go or didn’t know; you can attend next year. Add TV One to your cable stations; listen to Rev Al Sharpton one his radio shows.

Why? You may ask; because you are bound to learn something. Knowledge is power. (I couldn't resist the School House Rock throwback!) The National Action Network (NAN) Conference was held at the New York Sheraton Hotel and Towers in NYC. It was very informative. It was an opportunity to hear from key political leaders from their mouths to your ears.


Mr. Bentley was on site and available to sign copies of his book!Photo compliments of www.myspace.com/fonzworthbentley. He addressed the black church about the need to get into the ipods of the young. Use downtime wisely.

I left full and fired up for action in my country, beginning in my community; such are the qualities of the current President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama. He attended the conference two years ago. View these videos, compliments of Azinyc. known as Azi Paybarah of the New York Observer Politicker NY. Let’s pray, meditate and send happy thoughts to him and his cabinet to maintain their strength and perseverance to govern with continued distinction and integrity as we have seen.

‘The history of the National Action Network is the history of the civil rights movement in urban America,’ reads the first page of NAN history. Attendees of the conference, including yours truly, were able to hear from the chairman of the Republican and Democratic Committees in the same week. More details coming tomorrow.

You have just read Part I. Go on read Part II. Wednesday. Comments are welcome below. Be Blessed!-Peace.
