The most difficult part in developing a plan for a Nu World Order was where to begin. According to Wikipedia the African diaspora is made up of over one hundred and forty million descendants outside of the continent of Africa. The following chart shows the largest African diaspora populations.
Couple these numbers with over a billion Africans living in the motherland and we are speaking of a sizable chunk of the world’s population that could wield incredible power.
Finding that sweet spot to start a conversation with groups of people who are not monolithic will prove difficult. Obviously, the purpose of most any undertaking is to determine goals and develop a plan to attain them. That won’t be easy. With that in mind, the thought process was to start with the individual and work our way out across this diaspora. Start working on ourselves, then move out to our families, communities, nationally, and finally, tying everything together internationally.
The areas where we may want to concentrate working on our individual selves are our health (both physical and mental), our spirituality (whatever that may mean to you), education, financial literacy, family history, and why it’s important to travel. These areas can, and most certainly will be broken down further as we explore them. As we move outward to the other segments, family, community, etc. the hope is to see common threads and perhaps plans of action in how to improve and tie each of those segments together. The hope is for you to add to the conversation with your thoughts, expertise and experiences, helping to flesh out this plan. It is strongly encouraged that you share this ongoing column with family and friends to expand the conversation. We’ll be looking to expand this dialogue across the diaspora. We’ll also be adding the voice of various experts within some of those segments as well. Let’s make sure that we all respect each other’s opinion. If you feel this conversation isn’t for you then bless you, step aside, and let the conversation continue. Please reply below to help get the conversation started and follow this blog to be alerted with each new discussion.
First, you…the individual.
What can “I” do to help myself so “I” can help the movement?
