Why a "Black Agenda"?
After 400 years of living in this country we still find ourselves oppressed and enslaved. Time may have passed, names may have changed, but the fabric of slavery and institutions of oppression not only remain, but are thriving
UNITY OVER EVERYTHING
We must understand that its is only through our unapologetic unity that we can leverage our political and economic power to not only respond to the issues plaguing us, but more importantly, liberate ourselves and our future generations.
WE ARE THE ANSWER
Now is the time we begin the process of tearing down and ripping apart these held over elements of subjugation that have been harassing our communities since the arrival of violent Europeans to this land

What is the Black Agenda
It’s time to get free! And in order to accomplish that, we must present a unified agenda - The Black Agenda.
Today, the most significant indicators related to economic success show massive gaps in outcomes for Black communities.
The Black Agenda Tour is engaging Black communities in the types of conversations and collaborations needed to adopt a unified agenda that empowers our communities to thrive and succeed.
The Black Agenda will layout the 5 primary areas where we are under attack and how we can fight back:
Physical - Police brutality, privatized prison system, poisoning our water and food, healthcare and other issues that affect our physical wellbeing.
Mental - Trauma from the continual conditioning and propaganda through music and media and the stigma of mental health in the community.
Education - Miseducation of our children, the white-washing and erasure of our identity and our knowledge of self.
Economic - Lack of ownership and economic leverage necessary to build thriving communities.
Political - Lack of a political Agenda and the knowledge to apply pressure and leverage to the systems that affect our day to day lives.
We’re not asking for freedom. We’re taking it.
