But also…
I am prepping for another class of teens exploring the cosmos for our 2020 Spring term at After School Matters.

If you know of any teens who are interested in all things space, let them know about this paid opportunity and there is still time to apply for my uber cool Astronomy Program. Visit: and select “Astronomy” as your 1st selection. Teens will interview and if selected, will earn a stipend to learn and indulge in all things astronomical after school for 12 weeks at our Downtown Classroom…the only dedicated full time Astronomy classroom in the city. We start class on the 11th of February.

Black Men Do Yoga Hosted by Dr. Obari Adéye Cartman
The Quarry Event Center
2423 E 75th St, Chicago, Illinois 60649 i avoid yoga because im not flexible enough, dont like being embarrassed. i realize that logic is backwards because yoga would make me more flexible but i still dont go. yoga spaces seem for women and for people that already do yoga. we are creating a space for me. and another guys that need to move, stretch, breathe, and slow down. you dont have to wear tights and say namaste. Peaceful Tranquility Realized will lead us through some movement and breathing exercises to help us learn to use our body to heal from the stress of being Black men in America. then you are welcome to stay after for #MANifestWellnessSundays from 1-3 where we drum and talk about life. this aint the new masculinity or white people stuff. this is as old & African as it gets.
the first month will be free99 (starting 10/20) and if it seems like a good idea to continue we will offer our instructor $5 per session. borrow your lady’s mat or just bring a towel and lets get this healing on.

Author Talk
Jesse Binga came to Chicago in 1892 to work as a street peddler and rose to become a millionaire realtor and banker, the city’s first black banker. He also became a symbol of aspiration, self-reliance and uplift in Chicago’s “Black Belt.” -Don Hayner
New publication Binga: The Rise and Fall of Chicago’s First Black Banker shares the history of racial change in one of the most segregated cities in America and how an extraordinary man stood as a symbol of hope in a community isolated by racial animosity.
Join Binga author Don Hayner and Professor Emeritus Dr. Christopher Reed as they discuss this unsung pioneer in American social and economic history.

Info Shared by Commercial Avenue SSA



On Monday 1/13/20 another innocent 14 year old child was shot due to the senseless violence that has been plaguing our community. I believe that this is a call for the leaders of the community to make a presence in that area and let the community know that we are praying for them.

Therefore I would like for each of you to meet us at O’Keefe Elementary School located at 6940 S. Merrill Ave. Wednesday, Jan 22, 2020 at 3:15pm to walk the block praying for the students, school and the community. We will then meet back at the school for their dismissal at 3:45pm to distribute snacks to the students and show them that we care.

The child that was shot was a former student of the school and was shot in the area. Many of the students were familiar with the child and have been inquiring about him. Our presence is very much needed and the school is on board.

*Bring a Neighbor or Friend*, Note if you can’t attend Please Send a Representative.

  Forward On & Spread the Word.

I hope to see you there with us on Wednesday!

Thanking you in advance
