‘AfricaTown/CD’ –

AfricaTown Security and Development Association. Citizens and Businesses’ in the community coming together for the development of AfricaTown/CD.

AfricaTown’s model will be based on ‘Chinatown’ model:

Chinatown is an ethnic enclave of overseas Chinese people, although it is often generalized to include various Southeast Asian people. Chinatowns exist throughout the world, including East Asia, Southeast Asia, the Americas, Australasia, and Europe. Binondo’s Chinatown located in Manila, Philippines is the oldest Chinatown, established in 1594.

Many Chinatowns are considered significant centers of commerce and tourism,while some also serve, to varying degrees, as centers of multiculturalism.

No solid foundation has been found by, or established Black churches, NAACP, or Urban League. And this is why we need ‘AfricaTown’.

New trillion-dollar reparations lawsuit filed


(FinalCall.com)—A $1.4 trillion reparations lawsuit, the largest ever, was filed Sept. 10 by Timothy Hurdle and Chester A. Hurdle in San Francisco Superior Court, seeking restitution from corporations that helped to finance the domestic and transatlantic slave trade or used labor of enslaved Africans.

The plaintiffs are biological sons of Andrew Jackson Hurdle, who lived as a slave. The lawsuit defendants are from the insurance, finance, textile, tobacco, and transportation industries. They include FleetBoston Financial Corporation, Aetna Inc., Lloyd’s of London, New York Life Insurance Company, Westpoint Stevens, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Brown and Williamson Tobacco Corporation, Loews Corporation, and Canadian National Railway Company.

This latest legal action followed a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the brothers Sept. 3, which seeks reparations from a different set of companies.

“The $1.4 trillion is for compensation at the present value for labor. Wages can be considered restitution as well,” explained Attorney Deadria Farmer-Paellmann to The Final Call. “That figure can rise with additional restitution from profits earned on investment of those wages in other areas of business. It’s called unjust enrichment. We want to see the records so we can be clear,” the attorney said.
