'Do Not Grow Weary or Lose Hope'
Black Star Logo
By Vincent G. Harding
"When you're surrounded by Fannie Lou Hamer and Amzie Moore and Septima Clark and Malcolm X and Martin King and Ella J. Baker, and when you take seriously those lives and the thousands like them, then it seems to me that the first response to what we've been through in these last few years is the question that one of my friends said she is always asking: What is the gift? For she assumes that life is full of gifts, sometimes absolutely disguised gifts. She assumes that whatever we are in the midst of, especially when it's fear-provoking and despair-encouraging, it is so necessary, so important, to keep asking, "What is the gift here?"
Michelle Alexander and The New Jim Crow
Social Justice Movement Arrive in Nebraska
on Saturday, March 10, 2010 
People in Omaha, Lincoln, North Platte and Grand Island, Nebraska;  Sioux City, Des Moines, Davenport and Iowa City, Iowa; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis and Rochester, Minnesota; St. Joseph and Kansas City, Missouri; Overland Park, Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas; Cheyenne, Wyoming; and Denver, Colorado are encouraged to attend this event.  
"Much like a great explorer, Michelle Alexander has discovered another America--a bizarro world where prejudice and discrimination have replaced truth and justice. An America that is as intent on destroying young Black men as it is at proclaiming its passion for freedom and fairness. Even some of the most conscious and best-intentioned Americans can't see The New Jim Crow and their roles in supporting it. Michelle Alexander holds a mirror up to America and reveals a monster!"  - Phillip Jackson, The Black Star Project

Black Male Teachers Becoming Extinct
Black Star Logo"There are African American men all over the country with skills, and with passion, that can serve these boys in so many capacities that they don't even know," King says. "It makes a huge difference because [the students] are able to be comfortable with themselves, they're able to see what they'll become one day, and if those images are positive, it raises their self identity to another level."
King hopes that by reaching his young black boys early, he'll be able to help them build a strong educational foundation that will allow them to buck another troubling trend: the low number of African American males entering and graduating from college. A recent report from the Department of Education showed that males are now a distinct minority on campus-even at historically black colleges and universities.

Black Women Greatly Out Number Black Men at HBCU's.  Who Will Professional Black Women Marry?
Black Star LogoOf Black males who make it to an HBCU, only 29 percent will graduate within six years, which is worse than the 33 percent national average of black males at all colleges. Nationally, the six-year graduation rate is 57 percent.
The gender gap is magnified at Clark Atlanta University, where a staggering 74 percent of the students are female. Last fall, as the school welcomed one of the largest freshman classes in history - more than 1,000 - fewer than 100 were men.
One of the best options for educating Black students in America -- Saturday University
Please call 773.285.9600 to learn how to start a Saturday University in your city.  We have 15 free Saturday Universities operating in and around Chicago.  Please call 773.285.9600 to register your child for free academic enhancement or for more information about Saturday University.

Belafonte - "What's missing is that rage."

It was both a walk down memory lane and a call to action when singer, actor, civil rights activist and international humanitarian Harry Belafonte spoke at St. Sabina Church.  Part of a Black History Month program that also brought Princeton Professor Cornel West to the South Side church on Sunday, Belafonte, espousing incendiary views on racism and capitalism for six decades, did not hold back during his presentation Friday night.

Marlo Thomas: Tragedy in Ohio: When the Bullied Strike Back
Bullying is not, as some allege, some mandatory rite of passage that young people must endure on their journey to adulthood. This is not "kids just being kids." This is a murderous game that young people are playing all across this country, and without immediate intervention by adults -- parents, teachers, community leaders -- we will continue to see more and more deaths, and the slow and painful obliteration of a generation. It is tempting to call the horrid news from Ohio this week a wake-up call, but that is both disingenuous and naive. We've had far too many wake-up calls already.

BREAKING: Assault on Women’s Health Care Choices

The National Memo
--- Sponsored Email ---
Dear National Memo Reader:

The Republican leadership has opened up yet another front in their continuing war on women's equality and reproductive rights - and the battle is on this week. To understand what is at stake, please consider this urgent message from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and learn what you can do now to stop this assault.

Harold Itzkowitz
Associate Publisher on behalf of The National Memo Team

Friend --

We just received word that Congressional Republicans will force a vote this week on an unprecedented assault on women's health care. The "Blunt Amendment" would allow corporations to deny birth control coverage to millions of women.

We have to fight back and protect women's access to important health services.

With your support, we will have the resources we need to end the Republicans' attacks on women.

We are just $24,000 short of our $1 million dollar goal.

Contribute $3 or more before tonight's critical FEC deadline and committed Democrats will match your gift dollar-for-dollar.
Your support now will help Democrats to have the biggest showing possible for tonight's FEC reporting deadline.

They're trying to shut us up and shut us out.

Don't let Republicans silence us from speaking out against their radical agenda:
