I don't know much about Mr. Garvey's Liberia venture, so I can't answer off the top of my head, but I could dedicate some time to studying his case to present you with an actual answer.

verstanding With A 1up Vision​

Greetings! Below is a preview I just received about my new book, "Overstanding With A 1up Vision" from a reader. It's always interesting to see how people describe your book after they read it. It amazes me the different perspectives and outlooks that people can have from reading the same material.
The reader wrote:

"This is a very fine book for high school and college students. It is also good for mothers and fathers who are willing to teach their children some positive values and help them to keep out of trouble. It is also intended for people who are committed to popular culture and those who either know very little about the liberation movement or are very much interested in the black people's struggle from "pillar to pole." The book deals with Black history, organizations for black liberation movements through out history and the role those organizations have played in bringing us to where we are now historically. Mr. Saye Taryor's premise is that critical thinking is the most essential ingredient needed to bring about liberation, freedom, justice, equality, and fairness. To develop critical thinking skills, one must be ready to undergo a catalog of things. Understanding is not only necessary, but Overstanding is paramount. "Understanding does the job, but overstanding wrote the business plan." "Understanding can Drive the car, but Overstanding builds it, (or replaces it with something better)". If you understand something, you can operate it, but if you overstand something, you can build it or replace it with something better.
In other words, Saye is asking his readers to not only understand the complexities of our societies, but to also be able to overstand the issues of justice, freedom, liberation, equality, fairness, love and kindness. This is a very fine book."

ORDER THE New BOOK Papercover. Liberation Theology and Education are sources for critical consciousness building that go hand in hand. Justice, Freedom, Equality and participation in democracy are part of the liberation issues that must be at the full front in the struggle.

Can one of you educated brothers or sisters explain to the group the different approaches and philosophies between, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, and share your opinions regarding the pro's and cons in each individuals philosophy?  

Or would you rather talk about the picture on this post?

The whitey is very deceptive and his system gives black denizens the illusion theyve progressed and are equal, NOPE! And the woman in the picture needs to have my baby...

Would you rather see your child have million dollars and wealth, and have the values of Mitt Romney, or would you rather see your child have the values of Marcus Garvey, but go through the same struggle and suffering that Garvey went through during the later years of his life, right before his death, while teaching to the masses?  

Which would be more honorable to you?  Which life style would you rather partake in?

One of the most disappointing time I experienced was when I reached out to my fellow alumni, at the historically black boarding school I attended in high school (Piney Woods School,) to see if they wanted to start a program where the graduates sent care packages to the current students, and invited them to participate in summer internships, and apprenticeships. 

If you can't get people who lived together to do something positive and productive ... you pretty much have a slim shot at getting complete strangers to do anything counter productive as well.
What is the 1up Movement, and 1up Entertainment? When I use the phrase, “stay 1up”, it means to stay focused on making positive self-elevation and social change. It means to avoid the evils and traps of the world, and to think more critically, to make good decisions.

I just spoke to a 70 year old black man on the train who told me he was a activist. He told me he had seen it all. I asked him what were his views of Marcus Garvey, and he told me he had never heard of him. I wish I had a video to see the look on my face. After I told him the history ... he said he will have to get the "google" and check it out ....

I never anticipated that one ... I'm feeling some kind of way ... just can't explain in words.

How many intelligent brothers and sisters would like to respond to the content written in this article?  I was going to, but I'd rather hear what all of you have to say ...

+Saye Taryor Couldn't tell you the exact percentage according to race for that vote down in Mississippi. But black folks have a lot of political power down there, and I imagine they would've been very vocal about the situation if they felt seriously offended, especially in the college town I lived in at the time. No reason for me to feel ashamed since I didn't claim black people necessarily supported the flag, just that they didn't turn out in large numbers to demand and vote that it be changed, yet they were presented with the opportunity to do so. Most folks down there didn't seem to care that much about the matter, from my observation.

Didn't answer your question about what they would be celebrating? Well, that's a subjective concern for each individual. Believe it or not, there are some black folks who drive around in pick-up trucks and sport the rebel flag as well. Might sound crazy, I know, but if you asked them they'd probably say it had more to do with the spirit of the Southland rather than zoning in on the racial history at the exclusion of all else. As your article discussed, there are regional differences in terms of culture, and plenty of people celebrate Southern culture, whether black or white, albeit in their own ways typically.

Reminds me of a book by Carol Stack titled Call To Home: African-Americans Reclaim The Rural South. Has nothing to do with the confederate flag, but rather it's about how many of the black folks who migrated North wound up a generation or two down the line either returning to the South or sending their kids back to live with Southern relatives. The reasons having to do with economic conditions up North not proving to be as hoped for but also feeling more at home down South where there still existed a large rural black culture that held to traditions and old ways of life that the big cities up North were devoid of. So, matters of the heart and the community and a sense of rootedness. Lots of white folks feel in similar ways, race relations issues aside.

Not sure why you'd take issue with anything I've written here. You asked for people's viewpoints, so I offered mine. It's just one person's view of the situation, and I don't have any political clout. Can't claim to speak for others, but I can speak for myself. Take care.
