Africa, Black History, Economic Shift, Purposely Living

Let’s help each other Africa

Africa is awaiting Africans in the Diaspora.

Help them so they can help us so we can help each other. It’s basic economics. It’s cyclical. You get out what you put in.

Support your local black businesses. The online black businesses and create your own wealth.

History has taught us no one values us regardless of education, contributions or position. So, start valuing yourself/selves.

Suffering as we have as a people will only change when we realize our own worth. The mass incarcerations, historical enslavement and present mistreatments will only stop when you rise above it all economically. And unitedly.

The Afro community has struggled over time to meet financial, academic and have even attempted multiple financial institutions within the context of the “community” only to have these the institutions and all positive evidences wipes away, oftentimes with and in violence – history speaks to you in these academic journals. It’s a matter of historical record now.

An advocate against racial discrimination, in later life he was influential in the passing of the Race Relations Act in Britain.

He was knighted in 1962 and made a life peer in 1969.

Born in Trinidad, Constantine established an early reputation as a promising cricketer, and was a member of the West Indies teams that toured England in 1923 and 1928. Unhappy at the lack of opportunities for black people in Trinidad, he decided to pursue a career as a professional cricketer in England, and after the 1928 tour was awarded a professional contract with the Lancashire League club Nelson.
