7 A.M.” ‘The Wake Up’ Documentary Opens MLK Weekend in Select Cities Nationwide


7 A.M. Description:
“7AM” is a documentary that is based on the past and current African-American struggle of creating and maintaining economic infrastructure in the United States. This documentary aims to, not only highlight the issues that contribute to this phenomenon, but to also forge a new cultural imperative that will hopefully become the basis for cultural economic empowerment within the community… and beyond.

    With out the family structure, I don’t see how you can build an economic structure……

    The dysfunctional and reckless family structure we have now is responsible for a good deal of the social and economic disadvantages experienced by blacks.

      It doesn’t matter if you’re from a single parent household or a two-parent household when both send their kids to racist schools that indoctrinate them to become meek, obedient factory workers.

    I heard of the documentary recently. At the end of the day, a comprehensive approach is needed to solve our problems as black people. Our people are diverse. Some black people are gifted in technical fields, some of our people are gifted in teaching, some of our people are gifted in economic development, etc. It is a necessity that we should build our institutions, develop our own independent plans plus strategies, and advance the interests of our black people. These actions are legitimate and necessary as we are fighting against the system of white supremacy. We have to build in our communities and defeat lookism, classism, misogyny, harm done to Nature, and other injustices in our world. So, our people should unify more (as black Americans, Afro-French, Afro-Brazilians, black Africans, etc. are ONE PEOPLE. WE ARE ONE), so our collective political and economic power can grow. Also, we have to fight against poverty too. We can’t be free unless we defeat poverty and assist the poor. Workers have to have their rights protected and we have to end all forms of corporate corruption in our communities.

    I have read more than once on Clutch, as well as other sites, that black people have proudly stated we are NOT a monolith. Lasting and successful economic empowerment requires monolithic thinking among black people.

      “Lasting and successful economic empowerment requires monolithic think”

      Absolutely true but we are too busy attacking each other, both online and in the real world. The comments section of most black sites is proof of this. The black gender war has destroyed any chance of achieving the unity necessary for group economic empowerment.

    I’d like to see more mentoring in our communities. We have a lot to teach each other.
