Film offers us a powerful tool to shift awareness and inspire action. By hosting community film screenings and sharing them online, they offer a method to break our dependence on the mainstream media and become the media ourselves. We don't need to wait for anyone or anything.Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries below. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves.Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there's lots of subject matter to cover.

It needs to understand some basic truths about peak oil and the monetary system, the truth about capitalism and governments.Our society needs a new story to belong to.

While their practices and family heritage may not conform to…Continue
A RECOVERING RAP ADDICT'S QUEST FOR THE QUINTESSENCE by Ben Khayil B.A. Khazriel ( codename: Ben-REAL )Introduction “Music is much more than a form of entertainment; music identifies races, nationalities, and communities. It has far-reaching hypnotic effects on the brain and soul, and can take complete control of the body and mind. Music can determine the mood of a person or a people. After comprehending its profound effects on the mind, it stands to reason that we must beware, for the effects can be good or evil. Music is like a series of thought waves that cause men to think and do right or wrong, wise things or foolish things.Blacks have once more fallen victim to the deceitful use of words. There has been a conspiracy against Black people, perpetuated through a musical transformation. The message of Black music had to be destroyed because of it's strength and vision. Music is a part of our very soul and spirit; therefore it would have to be utilized and manipulated by an enemy…Continue
