The Poor Magazine Family Visual Artist Mutual Support Networks and the Art of Resistance Movement presents:

In the Spirit of Proverbs 29:18

The Visual Secret Powers of Grassroots Activism.

Our Mission:

During the years of 1619 thru 1865; and again from 1865 thru 1965, a large number of Afrikan (Black),Brown, white, and other poor yet morally courageous women of color have repeatedly played key roles in helping to covertly and overtly educate, organize, raise funds, and train new youths and young adult leadership bodys- whom were morally committed to help achieve all areas of our racial, social, economic justice, and many other grassroots human rights movement goals.

As such, some of the current goals of (a.) the poor magazine familys brands of grassroots community outreach work/and economic self-help organizing strategies, and (b) the New Afrikan (Black) Collective Think Tanks, the Pelican Bay Human Rights Movement (ie the original PBHRM), the Priosners Human Rights Movemnet (ie the statewide bodies of still captive PHRM activists), and the Art of Resistance Movement (i.e. the ARM’S) Brands of both captive and non-captive activist movements, is to help rebuild 1,2,3 or more DIY or do-it-yourself models, to correctly teach and show a whole new generation of our Black, Brown, white, and other poor women, girls, and our Harriet Tubman style models of adopted self-help sister circles, to have a stable place to relearn why/and how “to get our mojo’s back” as well as to play a more leading role in behalf of all of our collective economic, self-empowerment goals.

If we pause to critically analyze and compare both (a) the new collections of visual artwork by one of our still captive Black activists, named minister Baba Yafeu Iyapo-I, and (b) the below key verse of sacred scripture, Proverbs Chapter 29 at key verse 18: “…Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he…”-Amen (True)- we wil find, that together we can ALL re-learn how to achieve far more by working unity- compared to what any grassroots group is often unable to achieve. When working all alone. As such, come and join the Poor Magazine Family’s new campaign- to help rebuild a far more effective Indy multi-media movement in our own behalf ASAP.
