The problems that shut down the Project 2019 Web site for the past few weeks have been resolved.

As Project 2019 continues to become more and more widely recognized as the most logical and certainly the only viable solution to the problems that afflict black America, there will be those who will desperately want Project 2019 to fail.

The latest news and information that has not been posted over the past few weeks will be posted in the coming days. We thank you for your patience and support.

According to Charles Sanford, author of "Project 2019," Black History Month was "very busy, but very gratifying." The title of his presentation was "Making Black History" in which he emphasized the opportunity for us to not just study black history, but to actually "make" black history. Thank you to Proviso High School, Malcolm X College, Robert Allen and all others who are contributing to our efforts to make black history.

Please join our efforts to have "Slavery" recognized as a proper noun (upper-case "S") when referring to:

"The institution of chattel slavery in North and South America involving African people and their descendants from the 16th century through the latter part of the 19th century. Also, "chattel slavery in America during the 246 year period from 1619 to 1865."

One Obvious Justification For Recognizing "Slavery: As A Proper Noun
In all major dictionaries, there is a definition for the word "holocaust" as a "noun" -- and a definition for "Holocaust" as a "proper noun." For example, in addition to its definition of "holocaust" as a noun, Random House defines "Holocaust" (as a proper noun) as "the systematic mass extermination of European Jews in Nazi concentration camps prior to and during WWII."

If "Holocaust" is recognized as a proper noun to define what Nazi Germany did to European Jews for 12 years, then "Slavery" should be recognized as a proper noun to define what was done to African people for almost 400 years.

The information shown below was received in response to the story of the "BLACK MAYFLOWER" that was posted on the Project 2019 web site in January, 2001.

From: Tim Hashaw, Houston, Texas
"Are you looking for the identity of the "Dutch" ship bringing the first Africans to Virginia in 1619? Its name and history, and the identity of its infamous captain have just been discovered by myself. A book is due out soon. All rights reserved. I would like to offer a correction to your story on the "Black Mayflower": the "Dutch" ship consorting with the Treasurer was not in the employ of Warwick, but a privateer licensed with a Dutch Marque.
Its captain was an infamous and legendary individual known the world over. The Treasurer was indeed Warwick's and was licensed with a marque from Savoy. That marque had expired at the time of the capture of the Bautista,
and the Treasurer was technically a pirate. However the "Dutch" ship held a valid marque."

We will keep you informed as more information becomes available. Please send E-Mail if you have comments or if you need additional information.

(The Story Of The "Black Mayflower") All American children are taught the story of the Pilgrims and the ship, the Mayflower, that brought them to Plymouth Rock in late Autumn of 1620. The following year, the Governor of the Plymouth colony proclaimed a day of "Thanksgiving" to celebrate their first harvest in America.

On the other hand, little is known or taught about the blacks who arrived in the Jamestown Colony in 1619, more than a year before the arrival of the Mayflower in America. Jamestown, which was established in 1607, was the first permanent English Colony in North America. Although there were already blacks living in Jamestown prior to 1619, the arrival of approximately 20 blacks in 1619 marks the official beginning of Slavery in America.

The federal government's "National Assessment of Educational Progress" report for 1999 has been released. Among other disturbing trends:

The report shows a WIDENING GAP in the test performance of White and Black elementary school students in Reading, Math, and Science.

Also, Black 17-year-olds are, on average, still FOUR YEARS BEHIND Whites in reading skills.

If there was ever a time for all of black America to support Project 2019, that time is NOW. Only Project 2019 can save black America.

When the book "Project 2019" is published, there will be a dedication page that will list "Project 2019 Heroes" - those who are contributing in various ways to ensuring the success of the Project 2019 movement.

One way in which You Can Be Listed in the published book as a "Project 2019 Hero" is by simply pledging to be responsible for the sell of 25 copies of the book. Considering the momentum of the Project 2019 movement, this should not be a difficult task. Every young black American who you care about, and their parents, should have their own copy of this book. (FYI, the selling price of the book will be approximately $12.00.)

Please let me know immediately if you wish to be listed in the published book as a "Project 2019 Hero" - either by pledging to be responsible for the sell of 25 books or as a result of some other contribution to the Project 2019 movement. (E-Mail To Author)

The Project 2019 seminar held on Saturday, November 14th was a tremendous success.

This seminar was designed for high school students and was attended by 23 teens. The seminar focused on three of the key tenets of Project 2019:
- Only black America can save black America
- Knowledge is power
- "You" have to pay your dues

Remember that our children are our motivation for Project 2019. If we all do our parts now, we can help ensure the success of black America in the 21st century. Please let me know if you would like information regarding Project 2019 seminars.

July 12, 1998
On July 8th, I had the opportunity to discuss Project 2019 on the Mike Malloy radio talk show (WLS - AM). Although I was not surprised, I was certainly disappointed by the negative responses from a few blacks Americans who called the show to comment on my remarks. I am sure you agree that such "excuses, objections, and rationales" are only further proof of the value and the necessity of Project 2019. Here is a sampling of the "excuses" and my responses to them:

"Lack of education is not the problem. Racism is the problem."
It is true that racism exists in America. However, racism has always existed in America and, undoubted, it always will. Therefore, what matters is the extent to which racism impedes the success of black Americans. During Slavery, racism was at least 95% of "the problem." During the Jim Crow era, racism accounted for between 40% and 60% of black America's problems. However, in the Equal Opportunity era, racism can be blamed for only about 10% of black America's failings. What has not changed is that black Americans are the least educated and least knowledgeable racial group in America. This was true in 1619. It is true in 1998. Therefore, if one accepts the truism that "knowledge is power," then, in 1998, lack of knowledge is clearly black America's "most critical problem."

"It is impossible to get a quality education in an impoverished black community."
Almost every college graduate that I know is a product of impoverished inner city schools. And it is worth noting that the only exceptions are the children of these college graduates. If black children are truly made to understand the importance of education, if a thirst for knowledge is instilled within them, then one way or another they will get a "quality education." Indeed, if black youths were to spend half the time reading that they spend playing basketball, watching TV, and listening to rap music, black America would reach educational equality well before 2019.

"What does a college degree matter if you still can't find a job?"
Apparently, somewhere in America, there is at least one black college graduate who can not find a job. Personally, every black college graduate that I know has a job and is making considerably more money than black Americans who do not have college degrees. It may be true that black college graduates do not do as well as their white counterparts, but a big part of the reason is that they usually work for white bosses. However, even this would change if we had more black college graduates in the work force competing for and getting upper management positions.

The Heroes of Project 2019 have many battles to fight. The following story from the Associated Press is evidence of one more battle that we must fight and win. The tittle of the article is "Racial Gap Found In Computer Usage."

White students in high school and college are far more likely than black students to have home computers and use the World Wide Web, even after accounting for differences in income according to a new study.
"A significant segment of our society is in danger of being denied equal access to the Internet," the authors said.
The study, to be published Friday in Science, found whites in general are more likely to have a computer at home and to have used the Web recently. The biggest disparity surfaced when comparing students.
"We can't explain that by income," said Donna Hoffman, an associate professor at Vanderbilt University who help write the study. "There must be some racial or cultural or social factors. It really needs to be looked into."
The study indicated that 73 percent of white students had a computer at their home. Only 33 percent of black students did.
Among all ages, 44 percent of whites owned a home computer, compared with 29 percent of blacks.
The study was based on telephone interviews of 5,813 people in December 1996 and January 1997 by Nielsen Media Research.
The study indicated that 59 percent of whites used the Web in the previous six months, compared with 31 percent of blacks.
The gap was widest among races when people didn't own a home computer. Researchers said that suggests white students without their own computer are finding other places - such as schools, libraries or cybercafes - to access the Internet. Among students who had access to a home computer, there were only negligible differences in Web use.
