Alt-Black.com is a dual mission thought leadership portal. Its core enterprise is serving as a forum to determine if creating an alternative Black movement is a real possibility.
On January 1, 2018, the "The Alt-Black Manifesto," was released. It calls for a far reaching dialogue to discuss the prospects of creating a new social, cultural and political alternative for the People of a Darker Hue. The Manifesto asks the Darker Nation if the time has come to re-define its relationship with the nation's ruling power structure--the "Illuminati."
Alt-Black.com also serves as a central nervous system generating information and analytical products concerning the growing Trump-Alt-White coalition. The threat posed by emerging white nationalist forces, is new and more dangerous than anything we've witnessed in the post-modern American experience. To effectively counter the white nationalists wave, it's incumbent upon the Darker Nation and others to deepen our understanding of this reactionary current.
Alt-Black.com is an open space for the Darker Nation to speak, listen, debate and learn from each other. We have set up "The Dashboard" for open commentary on creating an alternative Black movement. The "Culture Curve" serves a similar function to explore the complex and critical issues of evolving Black culture. "Harriet's Code"--the Alt-Black Glossary is an open project to build a new language, describe new phenomenon and develop new concepts. Your contributions to the "Dashboard," the "Culture Curve" and "Harriet's Code" are indispensable to our efforts to foster new beginnings.
Since Juan Garrido, the first Black man to arrive in America in 1513, set foot on Florida's shores, our journey here has been a long and arduous one, filled with tragedy and triumph. Today, we are closer than we've ever been to real liberation, or at least the opportunity to decide our own fate.
For those who believe we have an unfinished agenda, let us rally to the call of history. Welcome to Alt-Black.com, where heretics gather!
Alt-Black.com Editor, W. Bernell Brooks 3rd
Longtime political activist, W. Bernell Brooks grew to maturity in Detroit, Michigan. He attended Southern University, an H.B.C.U. in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Influenced as a kid, by the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, Brooks first became active in the African Liberation Support Committee's efforts to aid the struggles in Zimbabwe and South Africa in the late 1970's.
Over the years, Brooks has became an active supporter of Independent political initiatives and candidates. He also maintained an intense interest in foreign affairs. Brooks was editor of the U.S.-Iran Peace Initiative, three years before the U.S.- Iran Nuclear agreement was signed. Brooks also edited Brooks Foreign Policy Review for three years. His articles frequently appeared in foreign publications, newspapers and websites. Brooks also conducted numerous radio interviews, on Black radio and talk shows, providing a unique foreign policy perspective.
With the election of Donald Trump and emergence of the white nationalists movement, Brooks raised a new website, Alt-Right Trump Watch, in December 2016. The site provided analysis and research of what he called a threat of a new type, not seen in the modern American experience.
Hoping to encourage renewed discussion about the increased prospects of change for the Darker Nation as American Empire spirals into further decline, Brooks combined Alt Right-Trump Watch with a new site Alt-Black.com. The site called for a national discussion to weigh the prospects and wisdom of forming a new Alt-Black movement. On January 1, 2018 the website Alt-Black.com was launched.
Brooks and his wife, Melissa reside in Florida.
