Message to the Community
from PCOL Convener, Rahim Islam

While the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s was a good start (we must not forget that this was one of the biggest internal fights in our country, second only to the civil war and the abolishment of slavery), it was immediately undermined and did not solve all of the wrongs committed against the Black community in America. Neither did it change any of the anti-Black laws, policies, and behaviors. Let’s be clear: Nothing has been done to address the economic impairment imposed upon the Black community in America. In fact, Black members of Congress have been trying to pass a bill for nearly 40 years to study the impact of slavery and Congress has repeatedly rejected it. This should tell you that at no time in this country has the Black agenda been a priority especially if there is an economic component attached to it.
