Knowledge is Critical to Your Future

Today begins a journey for me. An attempt to use the power of computer aided communications to get a message out to African Americans. We live in the greatest nation on the planet.

In this great nation of ours, it is critical for African Americans to recognize the power of knowledge and get on-board before we are truly left behind with little or no hope of catching up.

The whole notion of an education and what it means to be educated must leap to the top of the list of important and urgent issues for African Americans. By focusing on knowledge (education), we get at the root of many of the other plagues (AIDS, Crime, Infant Mortality, Unemployment/Underemployment, Other Economic Disadvantages, etc) that seem to operate with impunity within the African American community.

Our intent is to sidestep raw politics, although you are totally free to express your views, political or otherwise, as you see fit. My point is simply the vision for Learn to Learn is to be a powerful and moving force in the discussion and debate of the real value of knowledge.

The site can also serve as a link to other organizations that contribute to the central thesis of this site.

We must likewise include the views of those who may differ from our main point of view. This is healthy debate. If an idea or position can not withstand assault, it is not worthy of consideration.

So, welcome to this space and let's get started.

Thank you for introducing such an important concept. Learn to Learn or as someone once told me, the key to success is to Learn to Love to Learn. Unfortunately, most African Americans are not expose to such a simple concept. For some reason, being smart, having the desire to Learn, or having the willingness to accept personal responsibility to change your own particular circumstances are frowned upon within the African American Community. In other words, you are considered to be a nerd or a want-to-be. This is a result of most of us having low self-esteem and no one around to help encourage us to reach to the stars. I would like to challenge everyone who visits this web-site to help spread the message “Learn to Learn” while keeping in mind that the people we need to reach are not the ones that are currently practicing this concept, but the ones who are lost. To change the state of the African American community will not happen overnight, but if we can actively attempt to reach some of the ones who are lost, maybe we can slowly make a difference. We also must remember that nothing worthwhile will come easy and for us to make a difference, we need to be committed to changing the state of the African American Community. “Continuing to learn is a benefit not only to yourself, but is a benefit to the African American Community as well as a benefit to America”
