My Interview With TRINA ROACH, On Her BLOG TALK RADIO SHOW, "CREATING TOMORROW" April 21, 2010
A Message From The Founder/CEO
Hubert A. Gaddy, Jr.
I want to say THANKYOU and WELCOME to the BLACK IN TIME ENTERPRISES ONLINE RESOURCE CENTER FOR BLACK HISTORY AND CULTURE website. I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit and are inspired and empowered as you view these pages.
As I begin each work day, I can look at the photographs that hang above my desk and see generations of wisdom in the face of the enslaved African, the stern, watchful eyes of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Frederick Douglass' imposing dignity, that moment of connection forged by a single handshake between Malcolm and Martin, the quiet, yet resolute defiance of Rosa Parks and Jesus with the elders (all of whom look like me), sitting at the table for the last supper.
These defining images (and others) occupy an almost spiritual atmosphere from which I draw inspiration and focus on a daily basis. I'm compelled to make proud, my African and Black American ancestors. I'm infused with their spirit and humbled by the legacy of greatness they have bequeathed to me.
As Black Americans we stand upon the shoulders of men and women whose experience in this country was unlike that any other ethnic group. They were kidnapped from their homeland, enslaved, tortured, terrorized and murdered -- all in the name of White supremacy. Yet, the strength and power of the Black spirit endured and prevailed.
It is because of my profound admiration for OUR TRIUMPHS and GENUINE LOVE for OUR HISTORY and THE PEOPLE IT PRODUCED, I created the BLACK IN TIME ENTERPRISES RESOURCE ONLINE CENTER --- adding the mantra: "Celebrating Who We Are By Honoring Who We Were."
I strongly believe that Black people have a responsibility and obligation to continue the legacy of greatness we've inherited. We do that by creating positive, unique stories within our own lives. I say everyday that In order for Black History To Live, We Must Continue To Breathe Life Into It --that's the message we need to give our children.
Please use this website as a source of information and inspiration. It is my sincere hope that this will be a useful tool that will help anyone interested in promoting and teaching Black History and Culture, more effectively. Encourage your family, friends and associates to visit, too. I've tried to create a virtual forum that will get you EXCITED ABOUT BLACK HISTORY and enable you to Channel That Excitement Into Positive Action That Will Enhance Your Life. In the words of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, "The mere imparting of information is not education. Above all things, the effort must result in making a man think and do for himself."
Again, THANK YOU for your interest in BLACK IN TIME ENTERPRISES. We value your patronage and look forward to hearing from and serving you.
Peace & Blessings, Hugh Gaddy, Jr. Founder/President - BLACK IN TIME ENTERPRISES
