Alpha Black:  Marcus Garvey

"The world is indebted to us for the benefits of civilization. They stole our arts and sciences from Africa. Then why should we be ashamed of ourselves? Their modern improvements are but duplicates of a grander civilization that we reflected thousands of years ago, without the advantage of what is buried and still hidden, to be reflected and resurrected by our generation and our posterity. Why should we be discouraged if somebody laughs at us today? Who is to tell what tomorrow will bring forth?" - Marcus Garvey

Messiah Rising: we won't stop

Messiah Rising is a proclamation of Black Power rising in relentless opposition to the many government and social attempts to crush Black leadership, Black Power and Black Liberation.  The FBI designed and enacted COINTELPRO during the Civil Rights era in an attempt to destabilize Black communities and prevent the rise of a "Black Messiah." Like the Alpha Black, our Messiahs are many and their missions will not be denied. Listen to special segments of Messiah Rising as part of The Alpha Black podcast.  See video clips of the independent video series "Messiah Rising" produced by Ulysses "Butch" Slaughter.
