National News One Nation, One People!
he Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam are no strangers in the fight for the freedom and liberation of Black people in the United States and abroad.
Theirs is a proven track record of consistent and tireless dedication, work and sacrifice in the face of vehement opposition and attacks from those frightened by the rise of Black people or still psychologically and emotionally wedded to their oppressors.
Yet in this critical time Blacks must understand what freedom looks like, how they must be repaired inwardly, what reparations truly means and how inordinate ego and vanity of leadership is the worst enemy of the rise of Black people, the Minister told a packed audience at Bert’s Marketplace during a critical June 22 message as part of the 30th Annual National Convention for the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America (N’COBRA) held in Detroit.
Black people are the Original People of the planet and from them came all others so in this hour of death, destruction and confusion, the resurrection of the Black man and woman of America and the world is a necessity, said Min. Farrakhan.
“Until we are resurrected, meaning brought back to our original state and place, the nations of the earth will not find order. The order comes from justice,” the Minister explained in his opening remarks. Delving into scripture, Min. Farrakhan pointed to the book of Revelations in the Bible where an angel is riding on a black horse and it was justice.

National News MORE THAN JUST A CHECK for full repair of the Black community
The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America (N’COBRA) recently held its 30th annual convention. While a great deal of attention and focus of the weekend gathering dealt with the ongoing push to pass Congressional bills HR40 and S1083—The Commission to Study and Develop Reparations Proposals for African Americas Act to committee—organizers made it clear that was not the only goal of the gathering.
This year’s convention convened on the heels of a Congressional Hearing on Reparations in Washington, D.C., Juneteenth—commemorating when news of the abolition of slavery reached Texas in 1865, the marking of 400 years that many historians say the first enslaved Black Africans were brought to the shores of America and nearly halfway through the International Decade for People of African Descent from 2015-2024 proclaimed by the UN General Assembly.
