(Emmanuel Barbee A Visionary Thinker In The 21st Century)

Once God blesses me with the capital from my book sell and qualified people on my management team in place then I will start my Christian business in the city of Chicago and declare war on this Willie Lynch Mentality within the black culture among my members.

For 26 years I have been running across small minded brothers and sisters in person and online who only complain about the white man, the government, Jews owning the media and that black people don’t own anything etc…but when I ask them to work with me to create a new Black Wall Street they stop communicating with me or remain passive spectators on my friends list. It’s not my fault that I am unable to find qualified people in my city to join my management team.

This is why I wrote my story (The Solution For Black America) in hopes of attracting 30 black middle class professionals or others within the United States who have read my story and who meet the criteria that I am looking for which are as follows: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist.

I am also looking for legitimate Film Producers, Actors, Stage Managers, Grant Writers/Fundraisers, Technical Directors, Marketers, Accountants, Business Administrators, Social Workers, Financial Planners, Lawyers, Real Estate Brokers and Insurance Agents after they pass the criminal background checks, I will discuss compensation and incentives with them behind closed doors. I have my articles of incorporation and my bylaws typed and available for my Nonprofit Cooperative. I also have my articles of organization typed and available for my For Profit Service Based Business.

Since established black organizations in my city have refuse to work with me to improve our inner cities in the Chicagoland area I have decided to make my future business membership based and private. None of my members will never have to experience un-necessary humiliation just for trying to do something positive in the black community. Furthermore, we will not be under the Red, Black, and Green flag we will create a new flag and separate ourselves from harden criminals within the black community.

Our focus is on meeting the social needs of the community we will serve as well as work directly with single black families that want to utilize our programs and services. I call upon minded Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean Immigrants within the United States and throughout the African Diaspora. I also I call upon all Christian denominations, Millennials, Non-black sympathizers, moderate Muslims and secular people who are on my friends list and in my social groups to please share my book information with your family, friends, place of worship and at your local community center.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian organization is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I am on social media to get my message out to the public through my Youtube videos, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my online talkshow and now through my revised book "The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America" second edition available on Amazon I provide the link below. I am also taking classes to learn the ins and outs of becoming a film director and a producer so that I can turn my book into a short film entitled “Hood Liberator Made In Chicago.”

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement back in November 1991 on a site called Gopher. I created this virtual organization in order to help raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America, as well as for me to connect with other like-minded individuals who share my concern to form a legitimate coalition across the United States and around the globe for my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos starting in the city of Chicago.

GRCAM is a global network, we will focus on building up our financial institutions and increase our technology. I am encouraging the digital community to step up and work with me in turning my plan into a reality. Today GRCAM is on 300 social networks and has grown into a global movement, with thousands of people in my online social groups from around the world. My goal now is to turn GRCAM into a real Christian business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will take the lead in promoting the best in black culture and preserving the black family while improving the social conditions in the black community for future generations. GRCAI will serve primarily low-income African American families but also encourage the professional black middle-class families, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean Immigrants within the United States and throughout the African Diaspora.

I want to make Chicago a model before we expand to 10 other cities throughout the Midwest. My vision goes beyond Black America. I desire to reconnect with my ancestral homeland Africa. I plan on hiring brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up 10 chapters on the African continent. Those of you who live in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda don’t act like Black Americans I don't have another 26 years to waste I want to connect with those who want more out of life and want to be apart of this new movement.

The Lord has given me a positive vision which will help improve the African economy as well as job opportunities to those of you who will join GRCAI of Africa. Please encourage your family and friends who reside in Canada, Europe and the United States to purchase my revised book and read my story. This will help me speed up the process.

We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. We will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and our sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, and most of all help improve the African economy as well as educate the people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM. In time, we will expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands.

GRCAI will operate under 5 separate functions within the African American community.

1. A social service component

2. A Spiritual component (optional for secular people)

3. A Political component

4. An Entertainment component

5. An Entrepreneur component

I am called by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to rebuild our inner cities in America and the slums in Africa similar to that of Nehemiah who was called by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah used qualified engineers, architects and inventors to rebuild a new city. GRCAM is a Christian socialist organization. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. We will focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology.

Jesus told us to focus on the lease of these in society according to Matthew 25:35-40. He also commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Luke 4:18-19. We will show an authentic form of Christianity by being committed to the healing ministry of Jesus by showing compassion to inner city youth and their families which will promote dignity to the people and community we will serve.

Our comprehensive academic programs challenge students to excel in their academic and career pursuits and prepare students to be lifelong learners and responsible citizens in a global society.

To empower emerging artists in telling their own stories through stage plays, workshops and documentaries.

To re-create the Chicago Black Renaissance. The Chicago Black Renaissance was a creative movement from the Black Belt on the South Side of Chicago during the 1930s and 1940s that transform art and culture through the turn of the century. The movement included such famous African-American writers as Richard Wright, Margaret Walker, Gwendolyn Brooks, Arna Bontemps, and Lorraine Hansberry, as well as musicians such as Thomas A. Dorsey, Louis Armstrong, and Earl Hines. During the Great Migration, which brought thousands of African-Americans to Chicago.

This gave rise to African-American writers, artists, and community leaders and a new black consciousness, similar to that of the Harlem Renaissance in New York City. Unlike the Harlem Renaissance, the Chicago Black Renaissance did not receive the same amount of publicity on a national setting. This was due to lack of wealthy patrons investing in the movement.

GRCAI will offer a platform and interactive space for our Allied health professionals and create a network for tech savvy multi-cultural millennials and Gen Xers who will produce high-quality content and events. GRCAI will provide a stage where diverse professionals can showcase their work, gain resources for project development and distribution. We aim to become a major hub in the Black community.

We will do this by providing a broad, deep, and relevant cultural service to Chicagoans and the nation through producing and performing excellent community awareness to the general public.

Promote a diverse culture in the black community, offer a wide-range of services and community engagement.

Developing exceptional emerging talent by undiscovered artist.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will use the Arts as a catalyst for personal development, leadership development, academic advancement and community engagement. Our academic and cultural performance-based programs will help at risk youth academically, socially and professionally so that they can become productive citizens.

We will offer affordable cost at our Theater and Performing Arts programs, our entrepreneur workshops. GRCAI will use our quality programs and services to teach inner-city youth in the area of film and theater productions that address important matters. Youth are responsible for the artistic outcome of the production, which includes design, casting, lighting, music and performance.

African American from the lower economic class experience pervasive poverty and suffer great harm from senseless violence, high unemployment, mass incarceration, police brutality, drug abuse, high illiteracy, inadequate healthcare and failing schools as a result of institutionalized racism. GRCAI will combine sports, recreation and the Arts in academic attainment, creative problem solving, higher self-esteem and positive social behavior.
Furthermore, GRCAI hours of operations will strategically align with the schedule of the school system and with the research that correlates the incidences of the time violence and risky behavior for inner city youth are higher. GRCAI team will be committed to the vision and promote personal development, leadership development, academic advancement and community engagement. GRCAI is committed to accomplishing the objective in a safe, professional environment for our members and community residents.

Academics:

The research I came across in college indicated that students involved in Theater Arts, outscored non-art students on the SAT by an average of 65 points in the verbal component and 34 points in the math component. Additionally, Theater Arts improves school attendance, reduces high school dropout rates. Afterschool programs increases parent involvement and improves academic performance. GRCAI is committed to providing youth a safe haven to excel academically, creatively and personally.

Career Readiness:

Minority business owners are the fastest growing cadre in the Chicago area, contributing to a job surge and economic growth. Research indicates 68% of teenagers want to become entrepreneurs. GRCAI WorkForce Initiative program will address teenage unemployment by Illinois is said to have the highest teenage unemployment in the United States. The city of Chicago has a 91.3% unemployment rate for African American teenagers and 80% unemployment rate for Latino/Hispanic teenagers.

I am just one black man with a plan and a vision it takes a team to make a dream work. GRCAM is a global community of thinkers and builders I need your help to move GRCAM from behind a computer into our urban communities that need our talent and skills. I believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to the low income African American community and our collective future.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will be private in order for us to weed out fake blacks and others who don’t care about inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. Half of GRCAI will be a Nonprofit Cooperative, governed by an Advisory Board. GRCAI will be membership based and operated for the mutual benefit of our members. Also, any earnings we make are returned to our members in the forms of lower prices through our quality programs and services. Our members come first and we will be committed to providing trusted and understandable information. We will work towards keeping our members healthy, informed, and safe.

Everyone will be screen and must attend our mandatory orientation and sign the community pledge no exceptions. No harden criminals, No active gang members, No urban terrorist, No pedofiles, and no half steppers allowed in my organization this is how I get down. GRCAI is open to all ordinary law-abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
