"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these."

George Washington Carver,
American Scientist (1864-1943)

George Washington Carver was an agricultural scientist and inventor who developed hundreds of products using peanuts (though not peanut butter, as is often claimed), sweet potatoes and soybeans. Born an African American slave a year before slavery was outlawed, Carver left home at a young age to pursue education and would eventually earn a master’s degree in agricultural science from Iowa State University. He would go on to teach and conduct research at Tuskegee University for decades, and soon after his death his childhood home would be named a national monument — the first of its kind to honor an African American.

"As the United States moved westward, settlement and expansion hinged on protection by the military. Two African American cavalry regiments, known as the Buffalo Soldiers, were placed in the tense and tenuous position between Native Americans and European settlers. They also worked on infrastructure, like the railroads and telegraph lines that made westward expansion possible. For Buffalo Soldiers, military service offered the opportunity for a better life, and a greater level of independence and respect for their rights not yet widely found in American society."

"Hello Everyone, we must bring to know that we have lost a great friend. Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away. The USAAA will take a pause to commentate her life".

Ruth Bader Ginsburg born Joan Ruth Bader; March 15, 1933 – September 18, 2020), also known by her initials "The Notorious RBG", was an American jurist who served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1993 until her death in 2020. She was nominated by President Bill Clinton and was generally viewed as belonging to the liberal wing of the Court. Justice Ginsburg was the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, after Sandra Day O'Connor. Following Justice O'Connor's retirement in 2006 and until Sonia Sotomayor joined the Court in 2009, she was the only female justice on the Supreme Court. During that time, Mrs. Ginsburg became more forceful with her dissents, which were noted by legal observers and in popular culture.
Justice Ginsburg authored notable majority opinions, including United States v. Virginia (1996), Olmstead v. L.C. (1999), and Friends of the Earth, Inc. v. Laidlaw Environmental Services, Inc. (2000). (Wikipedia)

Well...Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with extreme sadness that our friend and our hero has passed away. He was 80 years old. His roar will be echoed forever across this great nation and around the world.

No words can describe this "Lion of the Civil Rights Movement". Congresswoman John Lewis was a man who could with ease bring everyone together from both sides of the aisle and get legislation passed.

"He joined us at the Reverend Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry and Homeless Christmas Day Event on December 25. We gathered around him to say "Thank You John Lewis, we are a grateful nation to have you as one of her guardians;

I got to shake his hand that day. A moment I'll always remember."

John was a friend to everyone he came in contact with and he led us without any fear and he got the job done.

We love you Congressman John Lewis. Yes we do."

"Good Day Everyone,

The first act of the National African American Chamber of Commerce (NAACC) will be to request of the United States Treasury to mint two forms of new currency.

(1). One Dollar Coin of Mr. Frederick Douglas

(1). Ten Dollar Bill of Ms. Harriett Tubman

Frederick Douglass was an American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his oratory and incisive antislavery writings. (Wikipedia)

Born: February 1818, Cordova, MD
Died: February 20, 1895, Washington, D.C.

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some 13 missions to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people, including family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. (Wikipedia)
Born: Dorchester County, MD
Died: March 10, 1913, Auburn, NY

This proposal and the request will be made in accordance with the Act of September 26, 1890 (https://www.usmint.gov).

The American Dream (1965)

Sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia (4 July 1965) The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr preaching;

"Oh yes, love is the way. Love is the only absolute. More and more I see this. I’ve seen too much hate to want to hate myself; hate is too great a burden to bear. I’ve seen it on the faces of too many sheriffs of the South — I’ve seen hate. In the faces and even the walk of too many Klansmen of the South, I’ve seen hate. Hate distorts the personality. Hate does something to the soul that causes one to lose his objectivity.

The man who hates can’t think straight; the man who hates can’t reason right; the man who hates can’t see right; the man who hates can’t walk right. And I know now that Jesus is right, that love is the way. And this is why John said, "God is love," so that he who hates does not know God, but he who loves at that moment has the key that opens the door to the meaning of ultimate reality. So this morning there is so much that we have to offer to the world...

So yes, the dream has been shattered, and I have had my nightmarish experiences, but I tell you this morning once more that I haven’t lost the faith. I still have a dream that one day all of God’s children will have food and clothing and material well-being for their bodies, culture and education for their minds, and freedom for their spirits.

I still have a dream this morning: one day all of God’s black children will be respected like his white children.

I still have a dream this morning that one day the lion and the lamb will lie down together, and every man will sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid...
I still have a dream this morning that truth will reign supreme and all of God’s children will respect the dignity and worth of human personality..
.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men (All right) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

We open the doors of the church now. If someone needs to accept Christ, this is a marvelous opportunity, a great moment to make a decision. And as we sing together, we bid you come at this time by Christian experience, baptism, watch care. But come at this moment, become a part of this great Christian fellowship and accept Christ as your personal Savior.

The NACCC’s Story

The National African-American Chamber of Commerce (NAACC) was established to greatly enhance the economic growth of African-Americans.
