November is American Indian Heritage Month

The strength of our Nation comes from its people. As the early inhabitants of this great land, the native peoples of North America played a unique role in the shaping of our Nation’s history and culture. During this month when we celebrate Thanksgiving, we especially celebrate their heritage and the contributions of American Indian and Alaska Native peoples to this Nation.

Battle Born; the Birth of Nevada
The United States gained the territory in 1848 following its victory in the Mexican-American War, and the area was eventually incorporated as part of Utah Territory in 1850. The discovery of silver at the Comstock Lode in 1859 led to a population boom that was an impetus to the creation of Nevada Territory out of western Utah Territory in 1861.

The Importance of Establishing a Political Agenda
Talk of establishing a Black Agenda isn’t my original idea or a new idea at all but one that has been spoken of for ten’s of years and maybe even over a hundred years. I wanted you to read below as the same things they spoke of in 1972 are much of the same things we can speak of in 2014. Are we ready yet? I am so let’s get started.

Gary Declaration, National Black Political Convention, 1972
The Gary Declaration: Black Politics at the Crossroads
Introduction
The Black Agenda is addressed primarily to Black people in America. It rises naturally out of the bloody decades and centuries of our people’s struggle on these shores. It flows from the most recent surgings of our own cultural and political consciousness. It is our attempt to define some of the essential changes which must take place in this land as we and our children move to self-determination and true independence.

The Black Agenda assumes that no truly basic change for our benefit takes place in Black or white America unless we Black people organize to initiate that change. It assumes that we must have some essential agreement on overall goals, even though we may differ on many specific strategies.
