LINK-UP 2 LIFT-UP tells about the problems that institutional racism creates for African Americans. This wokebook details “how to” develop creative solutions to our individual and
collective problems. LINK-UP 2 LIFT-UP is written from an emic perspective with both objective content and subjective experiences that (a) examine how African Americans are regarded in the United States, (b) address the diverse types of African Americans, and (c) share personal stories that reflect how Africentric models, techniques, and resources can help African Americans overcome the unique problems that our soci-ethnic group face so that we can meet our individual and collective goals.
Effective leadership requires both biological and innate traits, such as charisma, personality, intelligence, etc.; as well as, environmental factors and behaviors, such as clarifying, monitoring, coaching, developing, empowering, etc.; to help them effectively facilitate others through their life’s endeavors.
Our Founder is self-defined, self-determined and an Africentric visionary. Our Lady of Liberty remains a life-long soulmate; searching through information and experiencing events in our complex environment help our members reach our individual and collective goals.
Africans in America have longed to develop our full human potential and power in our complex environment without institutional racism, white supremacy, white privilege, discrimination, and domination; therefore, at LINK-UP 2 LIFT-UP we operationalize Africentric ideals, principles, and methods that are designed to eradicate generational poverty and ignorance amongst disenfranchised populations; while simultaneously creating self-sufficient, self-sustaining, and independent Americans of the enslaved Africans.
We, Citizen Africans in the United States, believe it is important to embrace our Diversity in our Pluralistic Society to achieve Harmony, Understanding, and Acceptance of our Human Differences to maximize our Human Capacity in preparing for a future beyond our current conceptual thinking for the benefit of our future generations.
