Thanks for sharing the video brother Lydell, and brother Wes send me the info for the contact you mentioned regarding the school. I'd like to help.

Brother Wes,
I would definately contribute what I can to this sister's cause each month. I would even set up a donation page for her here on Living Legacy Journal if I can get more information about her school and mission. Photos would help as well. That would be the very least I could do from here and as I am able I will do more...

Brother Lydell,
Greetings and peace to you. Thanks for sharing the YouTube clip regarding repatriation. I believe this brother is right on the money for the most part. There is much we can do, even if we have little means and even if we have no intention of moving to Africa. Still, there is much we can do. For example, there are hardworking Africans from the Diaspora in Ghana who could benefit from our support here in the States. There is a sister from Detroit who has established a private school in Cape Coast, Ghana. She and her daughter have created a curriculum that in addition to meeting the states requirements, adds lots of African and African American history. The goal is for these young people to grow up in the knowledge that we are all one people. If some of us could set aside a little each month to help offset some of her expenses, she in turn, could adopt a local public school and integrate her materials into their curriculum. This strategy could be the beginning of educating the Ghanaian youth about themselves and us and our connectedness. What do you folks think about that idea? Peace and love to each and every one of you on this discussion.

Sister Ngon'e Aw, I really appreciate your experience and willingness to share your personal research with us! The details you provide bring clarity to the discussion and an element that validates everyones personal thoughts. That concrete validation is essential confirmation of our notions of how things are and what they should become. Thank you so much for closing with an extremely important suggestion that I strongly feel should be pursued with vigor. That is, in your words...

"We need is to have our NATIONALITY RESTORED...perhaps we could petition the AU, to recognize our right to be aknowledged as Africans stolen and robbed of our culture."

This step is one that should definately part of a Collective Global African Initiative. I like the ring of that "Collective Global African Initiative" (CGAI). Hm-m-m-m-m-m-m?
