This Wednesday evening, the play #BlackJobsMatter, A Wilmington Experiment, will be performed at World Cafe Live at the Queen. I'll invite Professor Gregory Lloyd Morris to share about it:
Here's more information:
#blackjobsmatter…a Wilmington experiment, is a one-act play that briefly examines the lives of unemployed blacks in the city of Wilmington, from three different perspectives.
#blackjobsmatter…a Wilmington experiment is a movement born out of the desire to employ the over 9000+ unemployed black men in the City of Wilmington. The movement is based on three key areas:
- The solution to the crime problem is not more cops. It is jobs.
- The solution to better academic performance of inner city kids is not new schools or different teachers, it is a safe nurturing home so our kids can do their homework and get parental encouragement. Jobs bring the father back into the home and create that atmosphere.
- The solution to balancing the city's budget is to get people off of welfare and onto the tax-paying rolls. Jobs do that.
The overall result of these things is to restore respect for parents and for themselves.
WHEN: Wednesday, July 13, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
WHERE: Queen Theater - 500 N. Market st. , Wilmington, Delaware 19801
I hope you will join me at this important event.
