A hundred years ago, Blacks surged out of the South in the "Great Migration" to northern cities to escape Jim Crow and seek gainful employment. New York City emerged as the political and cultural Mecca that birthed the Harlem Renaissance and the Garvey movement. Black migration has now been reversed engineered. Our people are retuning to the historic homeland where our nation was born: the Black Belt South. The political and cultural foundation for a new renaissance movement and the resurgence of Black Nationalism has been laid by dedicated activists in Jackson. Now is the time to expand and deepen this revolutionary experiment.
