Sistaz Can Spark A Revolution

Here goes another Book Store List… This joint was sent to me by a brother at kulturefirst. You can contact his site at www.myspace.com/kulturefirst …This list is a lot more updated. He copped it from www.mosaicbooks.com

A lot people hit me up and let me know unfortunately that a ton of book stores have closed down all around this country. Beloved we have to support these stores whenever and however we can!

We CAN NOT leave the education of our children up to this or any other government! This is a VERY VERY VERY fixable problem. All we have to do is invest in ourselves the same way we invest in everybody and everything else…WE CAN’T CONTINUE TO STAND ON THE SIDELINES AND LET THESE BOOK STORES CLOSE DOWN! WE CAN FIX THIS!

We have to make reading and developing ourselves mentally and spirituality a way of life and not just something we kinda sorta do in February!

Let’s Stop Bitchin and Start a Revolution!

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BOOK STORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These booksellers serve your community. If you know of others email us.

Dr. Bobby Wright

Dr. Bobby E. Wright -  Dr. Bobby Wright was one of the greatest analytical thinkers of the 20th Century.  He not only skillfully identified the problems that face African people today but also had a clear solution to help solve our problem.  Dr. Bobby Wright developed a Black Social Theory that would combat white supremacy.  Dr. Bobby Wright said, "The Black Social Theory determines the destiny of a people by establishing guidelines of life.  It defines their relationship with other living things, It defines values and rituals, methods of education, and how  enemies are dealt with, etc."  Also, Dr. Wright concept of Mentacide explains some of the self destructive behavior exhibited by African people worldwide.  Unfortunately for us, Dr. Wright made the transition to our ancestors in 1982, but his spirit and wisdom will be with us forever.  The following audio samples will give you a little insight on Dr. Bobby Wright views on certain issues.
