(Who Is Emmanuel Barbee? What Is His Vision For Black America & Africa?)

I am the founder and president of the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. I created (GRCAM) on November 11th 1991 on a site called Gopher to help raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America, in order for me to connect with other like-minded individuals who share my concern for us 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 Chicago. We will take the lead in improving our community one city at a time. It’s my hope that through my virtual Christian organization I could form cooperative alliance with similar organizations beyond the black community, and support one another which will make a real impact in our racial group. GRCAM is about displaying the best of black culture. I am on 300 social networks and I correspond with 125,000 worldwide. GRCAM is not just online groups for me to sell a book but rather a support system for us to build our own network so we can support one another.

After 15 years of being ignored and rejected by established black organizations in my city I decided to write and publish my story "The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America" second edition. My book is just the beginning I want to be remember for trying to do something positive for my people who are trapped in American ghettos as well as doing something positive for my ancestral homeland Africa through my future Christian business the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute.

Once I generate enough capital/seed money from my book sell I will recruit and hire qualified people within the United States to help me turn my ideas into action. You don't have to wait until my book is on the best seller list to work with me I am looking for 30 people within the United States who have read my story and meet the qualifications I am looking for which are: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist.

I am also looking for legitimate artists such as film directors, producers, actors, stage managers, fundraisers, technical directors and marketers who can assist me with the daily operation of my Christian business as mentioned in my revised book. I will discuss compensation and incentives with them behind closed doors after they pass a criminal back ground check.

GRCAI will play a vital role in the community through our economic approach, community empowerment, e-commerce, business creation and finance. GRCAI will comprise a unified body of people working towards a more prosperous outcome for the African American community, African Immigrant community, and the Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean community. I welcome Millennials, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean, Non-black sympathizers, all Christians regardless of denominations, moderate Muslims, and secular people who are interested in working with me in turning my vision into a reality.

It's my hope that the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will become the Hub for black entrepreneurs and an infrastructure for local artist throughout the Midwest by promoting the Black Chicago Renaissance, which was a creative movement that emerged in Chicago's "Black Belt" which gave rise to Black writers, political activism, and social change. We will display the best of black culture has to offer: from concerts, workshops/seminars, and plenty of family friendly activities. We will host the best parties in Chicago, with various music genres such as Reggae, Gospel, R&B, Jazz, Hip Hop/Holy Hip Hop, Spoken word and more. We will create the best films and stage plays in Chicago, and we will promote unknown artist who become members of this organization.

My show begins on January 25th, 2018 on Facebook Live. My guest speaker will be Mr. Brandon Jones, I have two more open slots still available. It will be on Facebook messenger via voice call or video call but for podcasting it will only be audio form so that I can upload it on my podcast via Mixcloud and Youtube. To be a guest speaker on my show just send me your email address to my Facebook inbox, my Google email inbox, my LinkedIn inbox, or to my Twitter inbox and I will make arrangements with you through email to get you on the show because it’s more convenient.

My online talkshow Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos is an extension of the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. This live one hour no holds-barred talk show focus on promoting grassroots advocacy, business, finance, health, community based solutions, employment and spirituality which speaks to the interests of our listeners. Broadcasting on multiple social networks throughout the United States and around the globe. This show will provide insight on how our creative abilities can be used to create tangible change in our communities.

My online talkshow is not just a regular show, it’s a movement. It’s a movement fully committed to restoring the black culture, empowering our members to recognize their ability to change and self-determine their own destiny, and ultimately liberate ourselves from economic oppression. I am trying to give everyone on my friends list/ everyone in my social groups an opportunity to appear on my show to promote their business, ministries, or share their special talent and skills with my listeners from the podcast community until God blesses me with the capital from my book sell to start my Christian business. In time I will openly reward those who have participated in previous online events to come to Chicago live events.

I may be able to assist them with their travel and hotel expenses as well as compensate them during the process based on my budget and sponsorship. All I ask is that you support me by purchasing my revised book and sharing my book information with your family, friends, places of worship and also at your local community center. This will help me move closer to turning my vision into a reality. It takes a team to make a dream work I am just one black man with a plan and a vision.

My vision For Africa: I encourage my international friends 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 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 to recruit and hire brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in starting my Christian organization in America for credibility before we expand on the African continent.

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 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 be 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.

I am calling for new leadership in Black America I have a vision and a plan which will help advance our people and those who work with us for given a chance. 26 years established black organizations in my city have overlook my ideas yet things are getting worse especially for poor blacks who reside in the inner cities. African Americans have been protesting and marching for equality in the United States for 52 years and still black people continue to chant no justice no peace there is no substance just slogans. African American from the lower economic class are suffering 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.

It’s time for us as digital citizens to create a world that we want our children to grow up in it starts by turning my ideas into action. One way African Americans can fight back without marching and protest is by purchasing my book and participating on my online talkshow until I start GRCAI in Chicago. GRCAM is a global community of thinkers and builders I need your help to move GRCAM from behind a computer into 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 Movement pledges to support its active members once we are established in the city of Chicago as mention in my revised book.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will create a contemporary theater that is accessible and relevant for all people through quality productions of new plays and musicals. GRCAI aims to become the leader in developing and producing new theatre work and cultivating an inclusive theater community. GRCAI core strengths will consist of nurturing and producing dynamic and inspiring new plays, reflecting the diversity within the black culture through engaging diverse communities, and develop partnership with Chicago Public Schools, bringing art and culture to our city’s active student population.

Students can learn on¬-air skills, take a radio or podcasting class, experiment with virtual reality and hone the techniques that are essential to working in this digital age.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian business 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 Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will be membership based and private in order for me to weed out people who don’t care about inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. 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.
