The Marcus Garvey Institute will host a telephone conference discussion on "Jim Crow, a System of White Supremacy." When the UNIA & ACL was founded 100 years ago in the year 1914, there were several major systems of white supremacy in place, including Jim Crow, Capitalism, and Colonialism. We will take a close look at Jim Crow in America and how after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, and the 13th Amendment, for 90 years it worked to keep African people living in states of fear, and how that fear, when not checked, carry into the present, that prevents Africans from uniting on a mass scale to address the massive problems we face. We will look at how Marcus Garvey defeated Jim Crows fear tactics. The Honorable Marcus Garvey wrote in P&O page 3. "Fear is a state of nervousness fit for children and not for men. When man fears a creature like himself he offends God, in whose likeness and image he is created. Man being created equal fears not man but God. To fear is to lose control of ones nerves, ones will-to flutter, like a dying fowl, losing consciousness, yet alive." The call in number is 605-562-3000, Pin 1052837 #. We will begin Wednesday, January 8, 2014 at 8:00pm cst.
