Text Box: What if
Marcus Garvey should
Get out of his 
In the morning
Would the wicked people run now
Would they be running

Garvey would cry
To see people dying
Not from slavery that was
But, still they die daily
By a weapon that can be

People use knife
not to eat cheese, bread and
To kill their brothers and sisters for

Mr. Garvey
I know you won't let the wicked 
And let your precious people go in 
Or let their rich blood wash to the

So please hear our cry oh MARCUS!!!!!

Voices of Young Grassroots

Ezinne Ukala

Text Box:  Every day is filled with sorrow,
It will be the same tomorrow,
A girl without a friend,
Is not sure she will make it to the end,
Tortured by mental toil,
She is feeling like her head is in the soil,
She is always sad,
And easily gets mad,
Everyone puts her down,
And she always wears a frown,
She is seldom to smile,
Not even for a while,
And going on in her head,
Are thoughts of being dead,
These thoughts are suicidal,
Because accused of being idle,
She is always locked up in her room,
Thinking thoughts of peril and doom,
She thinks about stealing loot,
And looking for someone to shoot,
Pushing away her parents protection,
Wondering around without direction,
All she needs is love,
Not a push and a shove,
Her parents finally realize,
By seeing the hatred in her eyes,
They finally show her love,
And now she is as pure as a dove.

British Social History Series : A focus on First  generation Afrikan and Caribbean people and their descendants’ contributions to Britain’s wealth and nation building in the UK.

Themes: ‘evaluate, celebrate and move forward’. Lectures delivered by prominent individual achievers and senior representatives of grassroots and other organisations. In PART ONE, speakers will chart the foundation, development and leadership by Britain’s people of Afrikan heritage, and their historical and unassailable contributions to British Nation building. In PART TWO, a call for “creating a New Social History for the 21st Century and beyond; continuing to building together”, with a pointer to the way forward. All lectures will be recorded for future broadcasts.  Members of the audience will be able to participate in question and answer sessions, following each talk. Entrance to Venue is by pre-booking only. QCF credits will be awarded to attendees. This series of lectures, one of several projects planned for 2014/15, will focus on the history and aspirations of people of Afrikan heritage, their historical achievements in Britain, since 1596 to present day, collective sovereignty, productivity,  creativity, community wealth building, growth and prosperity, guided by SWEP principles, which are “to Share, Warn, Encourage and Protect, in times of plenty and times of scarcity, rejecting mendacity, larceny and slothfulness”

Target audience: people of various ages and social back grounds, teachers, lecturers, students, youth and community workers, mentors, social workers, personal advisors, trade unionists, and others, who have in their charge children and young people, who need grounding in the history of their families to Britain from the Caribbean, South America and Afrika.

 These including those of bi-racial backgrounds and others, whose clearer understanding of the contributions  and achievements, by people of Afrikan heritage in Britain, during the past seventy years and more, which would provide better personal mental focus, self-esteem,  belonging, sense of pride and motivations.

 The lectures are also targeting policy makers at various levels, who should find the history and aspirations of  a particular section of British Society useful in planning for a multi-cultural society now and in the future.

 National credit transfer: The organisers’ intention is to work with the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)   to award students and other attendees credits for their academic portfolios.  

 Partnership working is part of the organisers’ essential service delivery strategy.
