African-American Heritage Museum and Cultural Center UPDATE #3 (1998):
“The Youth Action Committee Takes Control Of The Last Black Institution
In Seattle!”

As predicted, last night’s meeting at SVI was indeed turbulent. The
uncle toms brought in 3 uniformed Seattle Police officers, along with
East Precinct Lt. Harry Bailey (local “Weed and Seed director and 32nd
degree freemason).

So far, all the communiques I’ve sent out have been very long (and I
apologize to those who weren’t trying to read all of that), but I felt
it was important in order for those who weren’t there, particularly
those outside of Seattle, to have a clear picture of what’s going on;
thus all the details. I’ll try to be brief with this one and anyone have
questions please feel free to email me, write, or call the museum at
206-320-9321 for more info. Again, let me also offer everyone the
opportunity to review the relevant documents for themselves, send us $2
for postage and we’ll send you copies of everything we have.

To begin with, none of the grassroots concerns were on the agenda that
Bob and Co. prepared. In addition, the committee reports were fabricated
due to the fact that the only committees for the museum that have been
meeting regularly at the museum offices are the Youth Action Committee
and African International Affairs Committee. Omari Tahir, founder of the
museum/cultural center started the meeting with the complete history up
to the illegal activities of Bob Flowers, Bob Luciano, Pat Chandler, and
Harolynn Bobis (and others). He cited the relevant Revised Codes of
Washington and told the crowd of 100 or so what else the ‘toms have been
doing.

Nickelsville campers relocate to UMOJA Center property in the CD

Nickelsville campers relocate to UMOJA Center property in the CD
Posted on Friday, March 18, 2016 – 1:29 pm by Bryan Cohen

The fallout from last week’s eviction of the Nickelsville camp near the intersection of Seattle’s two interstates has reached the Central District. Around 20 former Nickelsville campers have temporarily relocated to the UMOJA P.E.A.C.E Center property at 23rd and E Spring. A dozen sleeping tents and a kitchen tent went up on the property earlier this week.

The now displaced residents of the sanctioned tent and tiny house encampment on Dearborn Ave. were evicted by property owners Coho Real Estate after the campers voted to disassociate from the Nickelsville organization and run the camp themselves, citing unfair treatment by the Nickelsville leadership. Coho had partnered with the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd to sponsor the site and lawfully host it on its property.

If you live in Seattle and you’re not familiar with the idea of Africatown, well, you should be. Think Chinatown, but for African-Americans and African immigrants in the historically black Central District. This new video, produced by community activist Wyking Garrett, introduces the concept in a brisk two minutes:

I WAS A CHILD MEMBER OF MT ZION CHURCH IN THE 1950s

I WAS A CHILD MEMBER OF MT ZION CHURCH IN THE 1950s WHEN REV DAVIS WAS REPLACED BY THIS NEO- COLONIAL IMPORT TO SEATTLE. HIS RICO RACKETEERING CLIQUE GOT RICH OFF OF ROBBING AND PIMPING THE “MODEL CITIES” POVERTY PROGRAMS (MILLIONAIRE PREACHERS WITH NO JOBS?) THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INVESTED $22 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR FOR TEN YEARS ($222 MILLION DOLLARS) DIRECTLY INTO “AFRICATOWN / CENTRAL DISTRICT (MODEL CITIES EAGLE FROM MADISON TO MCLELLAND AND 34TH TO YESLER TERRACE)

AFTER DR. KING WAS ASSASSINATED THIS CLIQUE OF ROGUE PREACHERS LED BY “MESSY” JESSE JACKSON (“MESSY” JESSE JUNIOR INHERITED HIS “BI-POLAR MONEY DISORDER FROM HIS INFAMOUS RELATIVE) WAS USED TO MIS-DIRECT ACTIVITIES AWAY FROM DR KING’S ANTI-WAR PROFITEERING AND ANTI-INJUSTICE GRASSROOTS ORGANIZING. THESE “PROSPERITY PREACHERS” WERE PUT ON MAJOR BANK BOARDS AND APPOINTED “BLACK COMMUNITY LEADERS” WITH NO PLANS FOR AFRICATOWN CULTURAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT???

ENTER THE FBI / CIA DRUGS, LSD / HEROIN FOLLOWED BY OLLIE NORTH’S CONTRA “CRACK COCAINE” (METH IN THE SUBURBS). ADD TO THIS MIX “GANGSTER RAP” WITH THE B….. WORD AND N…..WORD AND THE IMPORTATION OF 8 MILLION AK- 47’S FROM RUSSIA (SEE 10/4/1994 REUTERS PRESS RELEASE, “STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN MIKE MCCURRY SAID YESTERDAY THAT 250 U.S. FIRMS HAVE ASKED FOR PERMISSION TO IMPORT 7.6 MILLION RIFLES AND PISTOLS AND MORE THAN 7 BILLION ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION FROM RUSSIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE FORMER SOVIET UNION THIS YEAR.”). THE REST IS HISTORY (VIOLENT YOUTH GANGS AND CRACK COCAINE DRUG MADNESS).

IF 19TH IS RENAMED, 23RD SHOULD BE RENAMED “AL CAPONE AVE.” TO MAINTAIN CONSISTENCY??? YES, ORGANIZED CRIME ( EUROPEAN SETTLER COLONIAL TERRORISM) AND THE “TOLERANCE POLICY” IS ALIVE AND WELL IN SEATTLE AND ACROSS AMERICA. JUST ASK OUR NATIVE AMERICAN / INDIAN / HISPANIC / LATINO ECT. BROTHERS AND SISTERS????
