Video interview of Megan Williams
So much media talk, but here is the
words from Megan and her Mother
uncut for you to hear for yourself.
There is going to be lots more said and
hopefully done soon about this terrible
experience that Megan encountered. This
will clear up some of the lies and rumors
you may have heard as it did for me.
It is
always important for all to know the truth and
once the trial starts lots will be kept from the
people until it is over. This is why I have now
shared this with you. They were just in DC last
evening and for those whom missed them check
this video interview out.
This evening, I was blessed to meet Megan
Williams, her mom and other family members
during a compelling forum about the horrific
abuse she suffered simply because she is Black
--- the struggle definitely continues.  Because of
legal issues, she couldn't tell her own story
during the forum.

Inventing an uncommon conversation
about being free

Black Star Project

Reflections from Dr. Willie
Myles, President, National
Campaign to Save a Generation:

More than 100 people representing 22
cities around the country attended a
retreat sponsored by Susan Taylor,
editor emeritus of Essence magazine
and founder of the National Cares
Mentoring Movement (NCMM).  It was
exciting to be involved with this venture
and to watch the excitement of each of
the participants.  It was a feeling that I
had not experienced for a long time: a
community of Black people meeting to
set strategy in order to rescue our
children.  The resounding echo of "NOT
UNDER OUR WATCH" was powerful.  
The speakers included Phillip Jackson,
The Black Star Project, representatives
from Anheuser-Busch, DOL Job Corp,
the faith community, universities and
colleges.

I was honored to give a presentation on the
National Campaign to Save a Generation,
discussing our strategies, our services and
the impact that we are making around the
country.  We now have a National Campaign
to Save a Generation starter kit, including a
DVD. I am pleased to announce that both
national campaigns are working together to
save a generation. The NCMM is designed
to RECRUIT and train Black mentors to work
with Black children.

Dr. Maya Angelou is a remarkable
Renaissance woman who is hailed as one of
the great voices of contemporary literature.  
As a poet, educator, historian, best-selling
author, actress, playwright, civil-rights  
activist, producer and director, she
continues to travel the world, spreading her
legendary wisdom. Within the rhythm of her
poetry and elegance of her prose lies
Angelou's unique power to help readers of
every orientation span the lines of race, and
Angelou captivates audiences through the
vigor and sheer beauty of her words and
lyrics.   

Dr. Angelou wrote the pledge for CARES.  
The highlight of the retreat was when Ms.
Taylor got on her cell phone to call Maya
Angelou, and placed her on speakerphone
so that she could hear us read the pledge
she wrote. She then shared her thoughts
about helping others. This was a moment in
time that I will never forget.

BAIL OUT ON THIS BAILOUT
By Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr.

Are we witnessing the death of the republic? Sound hysterical? Look at how
Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson proposes to govern the $700 billion —
some $2,000 for every man, woman and child in America — that he wants to
bail out the banks.

He wants the power to buy “Troubled Assets from any Financial Institution  .
. . on such terms and conditions as determined by the Secretary,” and his
decisions “may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative
agency,” according to the text of the U.S. Treasury Department’s legislative
proposal. In other words, give him the $700 billion to spend as he sees fit
and shut up.

The occasion for this breathtaking insult to the Constitution is the worst financial
meltdown since the Great Depression. Essentially, we are being held for ransom: Give us
the money on our terms or the banks will take down the global economy.

We know how we got here. Decades of reckless economic policies and batty ideas —
deregulation, disemboweling regulatory agencies, allowing a shadow banking system to develop
without limits, market fundamentalists preaching nonsense about markets always being efficient
and self-correcting — left Wall Street’s speculators free to gamble on their own. They borrowed
heavily, invented complex new instruments, and pocketed millions along the way. Much of it
depended on housing prices going up. Predatory lenders huckstered complicated loans to folks,
with no stake in whether they had any chance to repay them.

When housing prices peaked out, banks found themselves with billions in toxic paper, and
trillions in exposed credit swaps. Now they want free use of $700 billion, which they say will get
the crisis under control.

Treasury Secretary Paulson says Congress must act immediately. Well, wait just one minute. If it
takes $700 billion to bail out Paulson’s former colleagues on Wall Street, some basic questions
have to be answered:

Who pays? The rewards of the economic growth of the last decade went overwhelmingly to the
wealthiest Americans. Send the bill to those who had the party. We need an excise tax on high
incomes to pay for cleaning up the mess.

Who decides? We can’t allow the folks who helped create the mess be in charge of cleaning it
up. We need an independent entity, governed by a board with union and consumer
representation and the power to make the rules for any bailout.


Who benefits? If taxpayers are bailing out banks, taxpayers should get partial ownership — so if
the banks do return to profitability, we get some of our money back.

Who gets helped? We can’t just bail out Wall Street and ignore Main Street. The bailout must be
bottom up, not just top-down. Any bailout must include provisions for renegotiating mortgages,
freezing foreclosures and keeping people in their homes.

What gets the economy going? It’s not enough to bail out the banks. We need serious public
investment in the real economy — in rebuilding schools and sewers, in green jobs and
conservation that will put people back to work.

Who is independent? The oversight committees and the overseers must come off Wall Street’s
payroll. Financial industry lobbyists should be banned from the beltway for the next year.
Legislators=2 0should refuse Wall Street PAC and executive donations for at least the next two
years.

Who is accountable? No executive of a firm that is bailed out should be paid more than the
president of the United States.

Will the Congress act with the wisdom to put us back on track? Or will it squander even more
money on Wall Street without making America better? We’d better help Congress make the right
choice.
Adiama Fall Study Group Series -
Personhood & Community I  

Greetings!

On behalf of Adiama we are pleased to invite
you to join us for our fall study group series:
Personhood & Community I. This series is sure
to be a powerful learning experience for all
involved. If you were not able to join us last
year for Tradition & Resistance I & II, you
definitely don't want to miss this exciting new
series featuring two dynamic study groups
designed to inform and empower. In this series
we will once again be focusing on the AKAN
(Ghana, Cote D'ivoire), and AFA/VODUN
(Benin, Togo, Ghana, Haiti) systems
respectively.  Over the course of 6 weeks our
approach will be to:

(1) Engage Afrikan cultural systems as
essential to the achievement of Abibifahodie
(Afrikan Liberation) and inseparable from the
work of nationbuilding/the goal of sovereignty
(2) Employ Afrikan culture and spirituality as
instruments/tools of resistance
(3) Study Afrikan cultural systems using
Afrikan languages as the primary tool to unlock
the door to the wisdom of our
Nananom/Tɔvɔdun
(4) Move towards a clearer understanding of
the present generations mission/purpose for
engaging Afrikan cultural/spiritual systems as a
continuation and further perpetuation of the
work of nationbuilding and the goal of
sovereignty.

ALL STUDY GROUPS ARE RESERVED FOR
AFRIKAN (BLACK) PEOPLE ONLY.
ALL AFRIKAN (BLACK) PEOPLE WORKING
TOWARDS THE LIBERATION OF AFRIKAN
(BLACK) PEOPLE ARE WELCOME TO JOIN
US.
