While an increasing number of eyes are on black men in Georgia, given the criticality of the black men vote in the November 8th elections, a Black Man March is being organized to take place on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022 at 1pm.
At this time, the March speaker-leaders include: Ronnie Steven “Rizza” Islam (Nation of Islam), Dr. Umar Abdullah-Johnson (Philadelphia), Dr. Rashad Richey/Atlanta, Ben Johnson/Juneteenth, Al Bartell/Cartersville, and Phillip “Stone” Ramsey/Douglasville.
Bringing sharp attention to racism against the black man – and what former Independent Georgia gubernatorial candidate and Chairman of the Cultural Tribes Peace Network Al Bartell has termed as “a war being waged on black men in Georgia” – the Black Man March will also highlight a Human Rights Declaration to be presented by Bartell at the height of the March – and ultimately, to the Georgia General Assembly.
“The groundwork being laid by StreetGroomers and the Cultural Tribes Peace Network for violence prevention, in dismantling the framework of violence in Georgia – and in America – is at its core human rights-driven. The violent deaths – and assured violent outcomes for the Black Man in Georgia -- is the brutal human rights issue at hand. It permeates every aspect of our lives.
If black men are to come out and vote, Bartell adds, they deserve to have a platform where they can also express their communication of exclusion from the governmental decision-making process – and the brutality of their exclusion from human rights justice in their daily lives.
“The Human Rights Declaration on The Black Man and Violence” puts on display the assured violent death of the black man in Georgia – and in America."
