Starting last Tuesday with “Community Cop” and continuing throughout April, United African Movement will be expending a tremendous amount of resources to the killing of our Black youth. The fruits of these resources can be seen in many ways. For example, UAM is providing the best information available to the Black community to fight white supremacy.
It could be a better outcome if most Blacks were not tolerating censorship. In the white community, censorship is not tolerated. On the other hand, most Blacks are unable to define censorship and they are certainly unaware of its deleterious effects. Medgar Evers died fighting against it in Mississippi.
After having helped secure an opportunity for Noel Leader of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care and “Community Cop” to be a guest on “Here and Now” on April 1, UAM will sponsor the appearance of Utrice Leid of Florida at the Elks Plaza, 1068 Fulton Street in Brooklyn this Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.
I personally have enjoyed an association with Utrice since she was the editor of the now-defunct City Sun in Brooklyn. In my opinion, she is ranked with Wilbert Tatum of the New York Amsterdam News for advocacy journalism. He allowed for me to write a weekly and uncensored op-ed article in his newspaper.
The week following Utrice’s appearance at UAM, UAM will be at the Federal Communication Commission in Washington, DC, to correct the racial imbalances in the media industry. This is especially important today. UAM will also make another effort to get the federal government to reverse the disenfranchisement of Blacks in New York and especially the denying to Blacks the right of political expression. See, for example, the Freedom Party.
On that week-end, there will be a “Potomac on the Nile” tour which begins, however, in Baltimore and continues in Washington, DC. The bus tour will leave from Brooklyn. There will also be a tour of the Civil War Museum in Washington, DC. An optional town hall meeting will also be available on Saturday evening, April 14.
