The International Black Youth Summit

Youth

Youth, as we distinguish it, is the non-chronological magical strategy of perpetual rebirth. It is the production of freedom through a willingness to let go of expertise, knowledge and safety and to become new and possible. Youth is growth, faith, self-reflexivity and impulsive action toward a miraculous now. Youth is not limited by age.

Love exists in life as a powerful, unconditional and infinite entity.
Culture creates our expressions of love, but love is not limited by culture.
One manifests love as joy, passion, trust/faith, compassion and connection inclusively.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Fallon and I’m organizing with other women of color around the Dunbar Gang Rapes and West Virginia Torture/Rape case. Well, I was wondering if you have time to participate in a phone conference on Friday, September 28, 2007 at 9pm/central about organizing to end silences surrounding Megan Williams’ torture and rape in Logan and the gang rape of several Black women in West Palm Beach Florida as well as stories that go unheard because it involves a woman of color such as the Newark imprisonment of the four lesbians for protecting themselves from a male aggressor.
    Well, I’ve been circulating a 2 minute movie entitled, “How do you keep a Social Movement Alive.”

    This movie documents the silence surrounding Megan Williams’ torture and rape in Logan and the gang rape of several Black women in West Palm Beach Florida. The purpose of this movie is to document the silences within our relationships, within our homes, within our families, within our communities, within our jobs, within our schools, within our churches, temples, and synagogues, within our governments, and within our world.
    We have a blog, but given the organizing we are trying to do, I need to reorganize the blog and use wordpress instead of blogger. This is the current blog,

    If you can’t do the phone conference would you interested in being apart of the Women of Color Bloggers Breaking the Silences Contingency on the Web which would mean inundating the web with information about Wearing Red Campaign on October 31, 2007 as well as circulating clips and other media trying to inundate the web with stories of violence committed against women of color.
    I look forward to connecting with you,
    Fallon

  2. I love love.
