Removing the barriers of the BLACK FAMILY. Is your family able to survive the economic storm?  In today’s society, it is challenging for many parents to energize, promote, and enforce the 3 E’s  with so many distractions and divisions.  Organizing a STATE OF THE BLACK PARENT conference is of the utmost importance.  As panel members, our team hopes to unite BLACK PARENTS who share the similar interest and concerns while respecting the fact that we each have different background experiences.  We want to learn, discuss issues, share thoughts, and inspire action that focus on the same concern…OUR FUTURE DREAMERS, LEADERS AND ACHIEVERS!

 Alkebulan noun

According to the following resource: Kemetic History of Afrika; the definition of Alkebulan is as follows:
“The ancient name of Africa was Alkebulan. Alkebu-lan “mother of mankind” or “garden of eden”.
Alkebulan is the oldest and the only word of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthagenians), and Ethiopians.  Africa, the current misnomer adopted by almost everyone today , was given to this continent by the ancient Greeks and Romans. “

We are building a TEAM focusing on:

-Addressing, Advocating and Advancing the economics and education of the Alkebulan bloodline.

-Engaging, En.lightening and Energizing learning for the betterment of all registered families


Our Topics for ‘Kickoff NYC 2015’: 

*Education: How do we fund Our children’s education? This will cover child care, learning centers, preschool, primary, secondary, & post secondary education. We will/possibly address those parents getting arrested for homeschooling their children. Solution: Facts/Resources and how to maintain?
*Economics: How each economic class can help each other?
*Enterprise: Does small business solve unemployment?


“To engage Black parents in educational & economical enlightenment for the growth of their families and a higher understanding of their culture.”

Join us in the Empire State ,  New York City, NY  2015 as we host the “KICKOFF NYC 2015″STATE OF THE BLACK PARENT CONFERENCE coming to the world in the 2015!

Conference date: September 2014! at Adam C. Powell Building

This Special Conference focuses on Education, Economics, & Enterprise.

We want to learn, discuss issues, share thoughts, and inspire dreams that focus on the same concern…OUR FUTURE DREAMERS, LEADERS AND ACHIEVERS!

When a human being lives a life in which he or she enjoys freedom, justice and equality, awareness arises and one can focus on selfless giving – you qualify to be a parent because you are capable of the unconditional love that a parent has for a child.

But it is extremely difficult for Black people to get on and remain on this level, because we do not have freedom, justice and equality.

We must give much energy to the survival issues, which pull us down.

This is why we cannot ignore our condition.

Our freedom – or lack of – directly affects our ability to experience love and happiness in our community.”

Many experts cite that the family is the community’s smallest school and the parent is the first teacher. In reality, sometimes these community “schools” are “understaffed” and some must rely most heavily upon “substitute teachers” in order to reach and teach the children. Yet regardless of the perceived or actual resources available, society expects results. This expectation poses a challenge to many parents who feel their needs and concerns are not being addressed by politicians nor heard by the media.

“Remove the Barriers” is the call to action and mission of the first STATE OF THE BLACK PARENT CONFERENCE to be held in New York, during a 2 day event in 2015.

Organizer Bio:

Shortly after the historic Trayvon Martin verdict and before the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, a single mother of a toddler, “Ms. Shaunes” organized a grassroots team using her Facebook account. She felt that there was an urgent need to unite more parents in order to face the crises that she was personally facing along with the several challenges she observed within her local black community.

As a struggling single parent, she felt that there was not a reliable “village” in which she could productively rear her son. “There is a huge gap and estrangement between recently arrived Africans and African descendants” says founder, “Ms. Shaunes”. Her personal encounter with various cultural barriers and her strong desire to unite people drove her to try to improve the cultural exposure opportunities available for her 3 year old son. “It is time to remove these barriers!”, she declared.

“It doesn’t matter if people are in the city or country, up North or down South, raising a child of color in some communities requires more pull and in some others more push! There are a few important things we seem to share in common that really came out when we heard the Zimmerman verdict!”

As a result, the diverse team she assembled online and by telephone consists of parents and community leaders from all across the United States.


It is a goal with research and resources to be able to provide  aid to parents with child care coverage,  grassroots after school studies,  students enrolled in community college/ trade school,  and collaborating in production outside of economic classes.
