The Power of Planting Seeds
The Power of Planting Entrepreneur Seeds in the Minds of Black Youth
The Power of planting entrepreneur seeds in the Minds of Black Youth: building sustainable communities in the 21st century and beyond is a must read. In this powerful highly anticipated new book, Sobukwe does an extraordinary job of using the historic Black Wallstreet community in Tulsa, Oklahoma as an example of what is possible when black people put their academic talents, skill sets, and labor resources together to create economic stability and prosperous social communities that flourish despite racism and discrimination. The book points out that in the face of brutal racism and discrimination, the citizens of Tulsa in 1921 decided to do for self. They created black owned businesses that served the community. They had insurance firms, law firms, grocery stores, airplanes, hospitals, schools, mechanic shops, movie theaters, and it is well documented that the dollar totally circulated within the community.
Sobukwe suggests in his book that through teaching youth entrepreneurship, community responsibility, leadership, and inspiring an unyielding commitment to see social, cultural and economic growth in the community will lead to a new rise of Black Wallstreet models throughout the United States and World powerful enough to combat the current unemployment rate, discrimination and even racism.
The book is so powerful because in addition to looking at the power in creating entrepreneurs that are vested in the economic, cultural and social development of the community; it also looks at ways to develop the whole child through education, establishing healthy African centered households, implementing culturally relevant curriculum in the classroom, owning and operating African centered schools that oversee the success of black youth, developing physically fit and mentally strong will youth, creating healthy food consumption through organic gardening, and showing youth positive ways to uplift themselves and their community. the book features contributions and interviews with noted scholars and business owners Dr. Johannah Williams, Dr. Jeff Menzise, Wovoka & Ama Sobukwe, Dr. Haki R. Madhubuti, Dr. Molefi Kete Asante, Queen Taese, Dr. La Francis Rodgers-Rose, Dr. Mwalimu Baruti and Many More.
This book will spark much important dialogue for years to come!
