|Introduction to Blacks in the City Course:
|Blacks in the City is a class offered at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook, by the
African Studies Department. Professor Amiri Baraka (Brother Leroy Jones) was the department Chair
and also taught the course "Blacks in the City", a look at the struggles of Black People in the United
States from reconstruction (1865) to the Civil Rights Movement (1960's).
The class is now available here at the Collective Black People Movement (CBPM) website because a
member of the CBPM brought their University notes to the Collective to share with our people.
CBPM encourages Black People to take good notes in school and to bring this information back to the
community to spread the knowledge. In this way, the cost to educate one individual from the community
can educate all in the community who has interest.

|A Salute to Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson
If there was a man deserving of a National Holiday in the
heart and mind of African Americans, it should be Carter
G. Woodson. He chronicled the historical greatness of
our people, despite the evil onslaught of those wanting
to reduce us to an unworthy vestige of God’s creation.
He opened our eyes to the ancient past at a time when
we desperately needed psychological and emotional
uplifting. It is said, “His work, the journal he founded,
and the scholarly activity he inspired all contributed to
the cultural flowering of the Harlem Renaissance. The
ongoing recovery of neglected aspects of African
American history, literature, and culture owes much of
its impetus to Woodson's founding efforts.”
As we celebrate each day and this month in particular,
let us pour a libation in honor and remembrance of this
giant of a man, who committed his life in raising the
consciousness of a people who lay dormant, waiting for
that beacon of light to help us find our grandmothers
and grandfathers in the darkness of our ancient past.
We Forever Salute You!
Knowledge is the growth and exchange of information
committed to all levels of understanding."
