As we close out our celebration of Black History Month, The Family Meeting would like to share this terrific video “Still I Rise” with all of our followers and visitors. Jules Dynasty Productions created this comprehensive and thought-provoking tribute to Black History Month, which captures so much of our history in some many facets.

No matter what your color, shape, size, or religion, you are part of our family here! Please sit down and watch it, then watch it again with your children, answer their questions, ask your own, tell them who the historically significant scenes and people are, but most importantly, have a family meeting.

It is our hope that you enjoyed The Family Meeting’s efforts to commemorate Black History Month, indeed it is American History. Thank you very much for your unprecedented support of our Blog and our efforts to enhance critical thinking, particularly as to issues surrounding family. I say unprecedented due to the fact that I am proud to state that February was our best month ever in terms of views to the Blog. With in excess of 2,000 views this month and approximately 3,000 followers overall, we ask that you help us to keep it going by being a regular visitor and share with your family and friends.

The Family Meeting will try our best to do our part with thought-provoking posts that enhance critical thinking, spark what we call “family meetings” that encourage people to think about issues, discuss them, engage in problem solving, or a celebration of the good and great things.

With us working all together, the Family, our family, known as “The Family Meeting” will keep on rising!

    As the Anderson family celebrates not only this Black History Month but this “African World History Lifetime” past, present and future, I’m constantly reminded of the majesty ordained upon us by the God in us before the horrible holocaust of the “African Slave Wall Street” trading took place. We must strive to gain our communities back like the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Australia, Morocco, South America , China, Japan and India to name just a few of the lands inhabited by African Moorish influence. Remembering Tulsa, Oklahoma where banking, housing, education and government were a way of life void of mediocrity and apathy but impregnated with innovation, collaboration and self perseverance (F.U.B.U for us and by us ) of LOVE and FREEDOM. Although taken away by the exclusionary doctrines of suppressive ideology designed to teach one to fear, reject and know “nothing of themselves” we continue to rise in small but substantial periodic elements of thinkers and doers. As the magician of racial inequality detracts some of us with the baggy pants full of vigilantly rage, fear and ignorance, let it also draw the steadfast family toward the question “why ?” let it not be a deter-ant to those who constantly rise like the sun and continue to be that beacon of hope with Orion’s belt firmly grasped in their fist to someday pull the impoverished life out of that ignorant perpetual state of sleep. Carry your brother, cousin ,sister, mother, father, neighbor and be your culture, it is the surest way to world respect and admiration, one family, one man, one woman and one child at a time. Be who you are first and it will be added unto you.

    Know thy self and have a family meeting.
