ERROL A. GIBBS PRESENTS: A BLACK EMPOWERMENT MANIFESTO (BEM)

A cogent call-to-action ―securing the future of the next generation(s) ―the next 30 Years (2020 – 2050)

Toronto ON Canada, July 31, 2020/CNW/: A Black Empowerment Manifesto (BEM) is the brainchild of Errol Gibbs. His inspiration to write the “manifesto” came after 50 years (1970 – 2020) of observing the challenges that blacks face in the North American Diaspora, and worldwide. More importantly, participating in Black History Month (BHM) celebrations in Canada over the past 25 years (1995 – 2020) inspired the manifesto.

The “manifesto” is historic in its viewpoint. It offers 15 Innovative Suggestions that call for a change in mindset such as growth, entrepreneur, industry, wealth creation, family loyalty, generational, communal, political, and constitutional ―particularly an “industrial mindset” “Solving today’s new problems require a change in mindset. The abundance that many in the first world enjoy today is the triumph of industrialization (Peopledesign.com). These mindset changes are necessary as the world enters the transformational Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) or Industry 4.0. (https://peopledesign.com/ideas/the-industrial-mindset/).

Many individuals, community leaders, corporate executives, and governments have begun to investigate how their inequitable responses to blacks’ concerns over several decades have contributed to limiting the growth of black community’s ―from educational, political, corporate, and economic empowerment perspectives. Some global corporations have taken the lead, offering to fund Black Canadian community organizations and establish Corporate Employment Equity Initiatives (CEEI) ―voluntarily.

Praise to Wes Hall, ICD.D, Executive Chairman, KSS Group of Companies, and his executive partners for leading the BlackNorth Initiative virtual Summit on July 20, 2020. "Anti-Black systemic racism has to end," Hall said. "As business leaders, we must be aware that (systemic racism) has a material impact on our business, our Black employees and their families" (CTV News: David Paddon: Monday, July 20, 2020, 4:03 PM EDT).

The COVID-19 pandemic’s impact revealed the health vulnerability of people of colour, particularly blacks, indigenous peoples. The death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, a 46-year-old black American male in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill, opened up fissures in the black-white racial divide resulted in unprecedented responses by people of all “races,” cultures, and beliefs. They took to the streets in protest marches ―worldwide, including Canada. Errol’s contribution is “A Black Empowerment Manifesto.”

Errol created a campaign to raise funds to promote the “MANIFESTO” as a “free” PDF download ―worldwide. Please click the two links below to download the “manifesto,” to read the seven GOFUNDME objectives, and to support the campaign. Your support will gratify Errol and future generations.

ERROL A. GIBBS PRESENTS: A BLACK EMPOWERMENT MANIFESTO (BEM)

A compelling call-to-action ―securing the future of the next generation(s) ―the next 30 Years (2020 – 2050)

Milton, ON. July 31, 2020 (BlackNews.com): A Black Empowerment Manifesto is the brainchild of Errol A. Gibbs. His inspiration to write the “manifesto” came after 50 years (1970 – 2020) of observing the challenges that blacks face in the North American Diaspora, and worldwide. More importantly, participating in Black History Month (BHM) celebrations in Canada over the past 25 years (1995 – 2020) inspired the writing of the manifesto.

The COVID-19 pandemic’s impact revealed the health vulnerability of people of colour, particularly blacks and indigenous peoples. The death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, a 46-year-old black American male in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill, opened up fissures in the black-white racial divide resulting in unprecedented responses by people of all “races,” cultures, and beliefs. They took to the streets in protest marches ―worldwide, including Canada. These two epoch-making events are a turning point in black history.

From a Canadian perspective, the responses have also been historical. Canadians have taken to the streets showing solidarity with blacks in the southern hemisphere of North America. Many individuals, community leaders, corporate executives, and governments have begun to investigate how their inequitable responses to blacks’ concerns over several decades have contributed to limiting the “optimum” growth of the black community ―from educational, political, corporate, and economic empowerment perspectives.

Some global corporations have taken the lead, offering to fund Black Canadian community organizations and establish Corporate Employment Equity Initiatives (CEEI) ―voluntarily. Praise to Wes Hall, ICD.D, Executive Chairman, KSS Group of Companies, and his executive partners for leading the BlackNorth Initiative virtual Summit on July 20, 2020. "Anti-Black systemic racism has to end," Hall said. "As business leaders, we must be aware that (systemic racism) has a material impact on our business, our Black employees and their families" (CTV News: David Paddon: Monday, July 20, 2020, 4:03 PM EDT).

Corporate Canada’s benevolence will not last forever. Errol puts forward that Canadian Blacks should utilize the corporate windfall to build permanent and capable macro-level infrastructure (social, educational, academic, intellectual, economic, and industrial), lest the historical experiences by black life on the North American continent would repeat. Errol’s “manifesto” is historic in its viewpoint. He wrote it looking through the lens of the Black Canadian experiences and an “industrial mindset,” He does not pretend to understand the Black American experience living in a system that has subjugated Black people’s lives for greater or lesser extents since 1619 – 2020.

Notwithstanding, Errol has some perspective of having lived in the United States for approximately six years. Errol believes that there is a place on the table for his parallel narrative regarding “Black Empowerment.” The “manifesto” offers 15 Innovative Suggestions that call for a change in mindset such as growth, entrepreneur, industry, money, wealth creation, family loyalty, generational, community, political, and constitutional ―particularly an “industrial mindset.” These mindset changes are crucial as the world enters the transformational Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), or Industry 4.0. (https://peopledesign.com/ideas/the-industrial-mindset/).

Errol believes that a Black American audience could find relevance and application to his broad macro-level approach to some black issues. Black Canadians are ready to seize the moment. It is a “compelling call to action” that academics, scholars, doctors, scientists, professors, researchers, engineers, architects, educators, intellects, philosophers, writers, politicians, financiers, entrepreneurs, students, and clerics should embrace, including black youths.

Errol has created a Go Fund Me campaign to raise funds to promote the “manifesto” as a “free” PDF download ―worldwide. Please click the links below to download the “manifesto” and read the full text of the seven campaign funding objectives. Your support will gratify Errol and future generations.
