TUSKEGEE, Ala. (FinalCall.com) - With America suffering economically, experiencing political gridlock and moral decay, the solutions to those problems plaguing her and ill affecting Black people disproportionately are found in the teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
An enthusiastic standing room only crowd gathered in famed Tuskegee Square to hear the next steps on the way to building an independent and viable Black nation. Those steps include supporting Muhammad’s Economic Blueprint, which was initially announced last February, and an economic savings fund that is now up and running. Its purpose is to allow Blacks to collectively build a brighter future by giving just 35 cents a week to a national treasury. The website EconomicBlueprint.org was also launched.
According to the most recently available demographic data, Tuskegee’s population stands at around 9,500 making it even more notable that, according to organizers, nearly 8,000 people packed the square Oct. 20 to celebrate the 18th Anniversary of the Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement.
