Dr. Cornel West and Attorney Malik Z. Shabazz Debate, and National Town Hall Meeting on Donald Trump Feb. 21, National Press Club, DC

Posted by SendMeYourNews on February 17, 2017 at 10:01am in CURRENT EVENTS 

 On Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, a critical national town hall meeting and historic debate will take place by the illustrious scholar and Howard University Professor Dr. Cornel West and Black Lawyers for Justice leader Malik Z. Shabazz, Esq. Prior to the debate/town hall meeting, Cornel West and Malik Shabazz will conduct a national news conference to directly address the current statements and actions of the President of the United States and their impact on the African American community.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS: 3–4pm news conference featuring Dr. Cornel West, scholar activist and Malik Z. Shabazz, national president of Black Lawyers for Justice and other Black leaders. 7pm DEBATE OF THE DECADE : WHICH WAY UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP? and town hall meeting.


LOCATION: The National Press Club – 529 14th Street NW – Washington, DC 
The 7pm DEBATE OF THE DECADE town hall meeting will address the growing fears, anxieties, and worries of Black America surrounding the policies, words, and actions of the new POTUS Donald J. Trump. Blacks in America are still in a semi-state of shock following the departure of the strongly supported President Barack H. Obama whose approval ratings amongst African American elected voters reached over 95 percent. The election victory of Donald J. Trump has produced a seismic shift in the confidence of the Black or African American population's level of confidence in their support that they feel they have from the United States government.
Education, social security, public benefits, housing, law enforcement, justice issues, gentrification, mass incarceration, immigration issues, and many other serious issues are worrying Blacks in America; and these issues will be thoroughly debated and discussed with the audience, Dr. West and Attorney Shabazz. A plan of action for the masses will be announced and a new coalition will be formed that breaks the traditional boundaries of the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Power Movement.
Doors open at 6pm. Webcast on blfjustice.org nationalblackout.org  blackmensmovement.org

Birthday Poem for Viola Plummer on the Octogenerian-Occasion of Her Eightieth Birthday by George Edward Tait

VIVA LA VIOLA
By
George Edward Tait

(For Viola Plummer on the Octogenerian Occasion of Her Eightieth Birthday)

Hewn from the hem of Harriet’s garment
Adorned with the apparel and arsenal of Asantewaa
Girded within the Nubian garrison of Granny Nanny
A weusi woman warrior with a D-12 dossier
Documenting decades of dedication and devotion
Documenting decades of discussion and debate
Documenting decades of discourse and diplomacy
Documenting decades of determination and decisiveness
Documenting decades of dispatch and deployment
Documenting decades of daring and discipline
Definitive dates on the calendar of combat
Doyenne to the twelfth power
Dynamics of a D dominant 12th chord in a Coltrane composition
A December detail with 12 disciples
A diurnal declaration to the 12th of Forever
Building a bustling Brooklyn base into a pan-Afrikan place.
Viva La Viola! – weariness-proof and weather-proof
Armed with the aura of Abubadika
Enveloped within the erudition of Elombe
Motivated by the might of Mugabe and the magnificence of Malcolm -
In the trenches, in the courts; on the tarmacs, at the ports
On the sidewalk, in the street: a movement of melanin fists and marching feet.
Viva La Viola!! – with grassroots grace and global grasp
Asante Sana Afrikan soldier – Freedom ferocity and frontline fearlessness;
Asante Sana Afrikan sage – visceral voice and veracious values.
Viva La Viola!!!  An anointed anthem always sung
An everlasting epic, Eighty Years Young – Happy Birthday!

Roy Innis' Funeral Update




ROY INNIS
June 06, 1934 - January 08, 2017
~
New York City, NY. 
Family, friends, supporters, and members of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) remember and celebrate Roy Innis.
The Innis family, members, and friends of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), announce with deepest sorrow the passing of Roy Innis, long time Chairman of CORE and Civil Rights leader. Roy Innis passed away on January 8, 2017 in New York City from complications of Parkinson’s disease. He was 82 years old.
Funeral services for Mr. Innis will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017. The funeral will be private and will not be open to the public.
A Public Memorial Service will be held on Monday, January 23, 2017 to give the public time to pay respects to the Civil Rights leader who was an inspiration and who dedicated his life to achieving equal rights. This is the closest to a “viewing” or “visitation” that the public will have to mourn Roy Innis’ passing and to say goodbye, since Mr. Innis’ funeral service will be private. “Equality for All” was Mr. Innis’ mission and it is befitting to celebrate his life as a champion for all mankind. He embodied the ideals of “Truth, Logic, and Courage” and was a trailblazer for inclusion and pragmatism in his approach to race relations. The world is better because of his life and commitment to equality for all.
Please join the family of Mr. Innis, friends, supporters, and members of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) in a memorial service to honor and to celebrate his life, death, and legacy. CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Roy Innis, National Chairman of CORE the Congress Of Racial Equality, dies at 82.

Being a member and an officer of (CORE) the Congress Of Racial Equality remains the prime transformational experience of my life.
Roy Innis lived outside of the constraints of what is to be an African, African American and Virgin Islander.
Thanks for being here - thank you, Roy Innis, for making the reality of equal rights of all human beings a possibility. --- Kwasi Akyeampong.
