Description: This call is talk about the African Diaspora Directorate and Hamilton County Ohio as ground Zero for it. This call is talk about the African Diaspora Directorate (Page 2 and 3) and Hamilton County Ohio as ground zero for a African Diaspora with allies talk centered about 4 issues –

(1) injustice in the justice system centered around Judge Tracie Hunter’s tribulations and our report to the UN Human Rights Council via the 2020 Universal Periodic Review of the USA (#UNUPR) Pages 4 and 5
(2) President Trump’s tweets to Rep.Elijah Cummings on his district in reference to our 2019 Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent (#WGEPAD) report on the USA Pages 10 through 14

Solutions instead of Tweets

(3) how do we create a #BlackFolksPlan and what does that mean in regards to the condition of People of African Descent (#PAD) in the USA Pages 6 through 9 with data on the USA

(4) funding an effective education K-12 program. We use as an example school district that is proud of a 75% graduation rate, Cincinnati, the largest city in Hamilton County,in a county with 200,000 #PAD population. Our county-wide goal for all students is a graduation rate of 95% by 2030. The question is how do we get there. We start that journey tomorrow.

There has been an agreement to expand the foundations of the African Diaspora Directorate with additional co-founders through the conversion of the established not for profit 501c3 human service organization Brotherhood and Sisterhood International, Inc. into existence as the African Diaspora Directorate. This was agreed upon by Juneteenth 2019 (June 19th, 2019) by the co-founders.


This then is to be the African Diaspora’s organizing public call as a Civil Society Organization (CSO) in service to the 300m people of African Descent in the global African Diaspora. A special focus the CSO in 2019 – 2020 is to be on the 47m People of African Descent in the United States of America. Todays focus in on Hamilton County, Washington DC and LA.
