People become failures when they give up. Keep pushing!

Anything worth doing is worth doing badly until you get it right!

Im learning that peace, family and independence is currency. It is time to build legacies for our children and generations.

If life knocks you down, try to land on your back because if you can look up, you can get up!

You dont have to be great to get started, but you do have to get started to be great.

Definitely agree with this! We must eliminate that excuses mindset if we are to push forward. We go harder to defame Black Owned businesses, rather than white-owned. If we don't see this as a problem, then we are not ready to commit to change.

Before we set goals, lets make sure our spirits intact first.

Happy New Year! "No matter what's going on in your life today, remember, it's only preparation. It's preparation for better things. Everything happens when it needs to happen, everyone is always where they need to be. You will never miss out on what is meant for you." Iyanla Vanzant.

This is the platform to discuss black empowerment. This platform gives agency and that is a vital peice of the black power puzzle. in the full clip of Dr Andersons presentation he mentions how does one organize their people without having a platform to do so?... well thats ttaken care of now. So moving on, one of the reasons I joined New Era outside of all the good work that was being done is the potential to make Dr Andersons vision a reality. With Chapters across the country this org is uniquely positioned to build a gamechanger. (cotd)

This is Unilever. They are a conglomerate whos funding allows for these brands to expand operations and ultimately their reach and revenue. BOBs have been fighting an uphill battle because they solely rely on our patronage. We have never thought about owning a peice of every BOB with the intention of expanding them into household names. This formula is being used in a lot of industries. For example, a european conglomerate owns Giant and other grocery store chains here in the states and other countries. Our turn to be in position to buy BET . (cotd)

So in conclusion. In 2021 New Era DMV will be building the option to become shareholders/members/citizens that can utilize this agenda and work towards changing the dynamic. All the energy used to elect Biden/Harris can be utilized with this agenda. Trump is out of office so there is no bigger fish to fry. BOBs are closing left and right and boycotts of white businesses do not build wealth for us unless we build a competitor. Its a n affordable situation so there is no excuse. I welcome all thoughts and questions. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽

To build a microeconomy we will need to use methods that were succesful in the past and modernize them. Marcus Garveys UNIA used investment capital to build a plethora of businesses under the UNIA umbrella. NOI collects $1.75 a week from its members to fund the businesses under their umbrella sustainability. We can use our pocket change to invest and sustain our own economic solution. We can be the shareholders that matter. With 40+ million here we can generate $40+ million a week to use to build whatever we want and need.

If you have self love.. you have everything & that's facts .

The New Era Nation ✊🏾 have been making strides in their communities approximately six (6) years ago. Their chapters are constantly growing across the United States and New Era DMV is one of them.

BLKEM is partnering with New Era DMV and Martha's Table to bring you the First Annual Holiday Food Drive in the DMV. They're looking to feed 100 families.

There's still time to partner, volunteer or donate. We implore you to support, whichever way you can. Send an email to and/or donate via cash app to $neweradmv.

We continue to hear and see these practices take place AGAINST us, every single time. 

It's sickening, frustrating, heart breaking..there's no word on the planet that can describe it. 

Even if it's not affecting you directly, it is affecting the very essence of being Black in America and the world. It is affecting the very essence of negative representation for our kids.  
We need to start doing this, decades ago!  

All I want to do is build and collaborate with my people ✊🏾 unity is beauty 💚
