EVENT: TI Education Challenge

THE STORY:

FACT#1: Ancient Africa laid the foundation for Europe to achieve great things. Fact #2, most Black kids don't know that. When a child enters the American education system they are bombarded with images of stand out whites and a few enslaved blacks. Not many schools are teaching these African-American kids about Hannibal of Cartharage, Queen Ann Nzinga, Uthman Dan Fodio, or Abubukari the second. MY GOAL IS TO CHANGE HOW WE PERCEIVE AND TREAT OURSELVES AND EACH OTHER THROUGH SELF KNOWLEDGE VIA WELL DONE YOUTUBE VIDEOS ON OUR HISTORY. With the money I could buy lighting equipment, cameras, and a few more things I need to start to disseminate this information. If done right, both kids and adults would tune in. Fact#3: there is some violence in Black communities, besides the poverty and mis-education that fuels it the fact that we don't know our history makes it so. The reason is no history means NO IDENTITY and no HUMANITY so if you don't see humanity in YOURSELF as a Black person you WON'T see it in other Black people and it makes it easier to do something foul to someone who looks you. Please donate, this is something our communities need BADLY.
