peace in honor of Black Lives Matter” we need the NAAM staff/board members to stop calling police on Baba Omari Tahir founder of African American Heritage Museum & Cultural Center At Colman School and currently occupying and holding space there in protest. We need the village to make sure nothing happens to him and things get on track towards our community getting the world class cultural center we need and deserve.

Our history is so critical at this time, and the toll of being black and constantly fighting is real. I agree that far too many people do not know or understand the history of what it took during the many years that Omari and so many others went without heat, electricity etc. and stood their ground year after year occupying the school that is now known as the Northwest African American Museum.
Antonesha Jackson
02:01:28
They said no “wellness check” that too often leads to escalation and confllict
Hazel Koons
02:01:49
yes DEMANDS ✊❤
Antonesha Jackson
02:02:35
They only want to talk to Moni Tep, Jamala or Briaan because they are from the community.
Mariah Hart
02:02:50
What is a wellness check exactly?
Lee Williams
02:03:52
I remember the years that he stood in protest at that building.
Antonesha Jackson
02:03:56
Charleena Lyles called police for help “wellness” and got murdered

Dawn Mason was right when she said Tiny House = Slave Shack Shanti House = Jim Crow Apartheid. We need to own our community!
Lisa Ellis,Mount Vernon
02:10:23
awesome here
jack son!
02:11:13
yes we have unify in the field. quit being house niggas. we know when the 1705 slave codes were created, they also created the bourgeoisie class of negores. yall are perpetuating that history by not playing your role in our struggle. if the shoe fits, wear it!
Brother Perry
02:11:23
Thank you! It is critical that our Black revolutionary history is neither forgotten nor erased. The spirit of SANKOFA demands that of us as African descedant people. There is no Black unitity without revolutionary truth and radical healing. Much love and respect to our elder Bro. Omari and so many others who continue to be the griots and carriers of our sacred, revolutionary Black history in this region & beyond.
Antonesha Jackson
02:11:56
Let’s move from Jim Crow Apartheid In “Martin Luther King Jr. King Jr. County” to a new normal rooted in equity.

Brother Perry
02:12:58
In the spirit of not erasing our hisotry: we must acknowledge the groundbreaking work on "adultification" of Black children was done by the Black woman sociologist Dr. Joyce Ladner in the 1970s -- when it was not popular: https://www.amazon.com/Tomorrows-Tomorrow-Black-Joyce-Ladner/dp/0803279566
Kimberly Lawrence
02:14:20
they are only talking about people called african americans fyi...not all Black people.
Lisa Ellis,Mount Vernon
02:16:02
AMEN!
Antonesha Jackson
02:17:09
it’s embarrassing that we have a “history” institution that doesn’t even tell the true history of the institution, the struggle and people that produced it. A 74 year old founder has to reoccupy 35 years after the original occupation to force the conversation to bring out the real into the light to make it right.
Antonesha Jackson
02:17:19
peace everyone, as someone who is holding space with brother omari, officials at the museum have communicated to me that omari is diseased, that his ideas are delusional. that is why the wellness check was conduc. we cannot let ableism and ageism plague our communities or movements. thank you for your time and attention.
Antonesha Jackson
02:22:07
yes how are the children? They are dying in the streets, hurting and killing themselves because there are no institutions dedicate to instilling love of Black people, positive self identity, culture and developing their genius.
Antonesha Jackson
02:22:25
powerful thank you Dr
Antonesha Jackson
02:25:10
That’s what 6 Black men put their lives on the line on Nov. 23, 1985 to create. For context this was not long after the MOVE Bombing in Philadelphia.
jack son!
02:26:43
exactly. we have been at war since the inception of this country. i dont think y'all understand what culture is and what culture you actively practice.
Rico Wade
02:28:10
What does MOVE have to do with Seattle
Antonesha Jackson
02:28:48
Can we tell the true story of African American Museum at Colman School?
Antonesha Jackson
02:29:43
YES AND AS LOUDLY AS WE POSSIBLY CAN!
Courtney Leake
02:29:44
I second that request Antonesha!
Courtney Leake
02:30:21
Trying to learn the true story
Antonesha Jackson
02:30:43
EXACTLY
jack son!
02:30:53
Omari has been a champion of our culture, yet he is not respected as the living legend he is. instead the neo colonial culture of the black community known as the urban league and NAACP have destroyed many times over our chance to determine our culture in this country. that directly effected the entire Afrikan Diaspora and further put our global kinfolk under the influence of white supremecy and European imperialism
Jen Norling
02:30:53
Yes!
Haruko Watanabe
02:30:54
yes!
Lisa Ellis,Mount Vernon
02:31:03

Antonesha Jackson
02:32:56
YES ADMIT COMPLICITY OF THE NAAM SCAM URBAN PILLAGE WITH WEED & SEED GENTRIFICATION OF THE CD AND DESTRUCTION OF BLACK COMMUNITY
Antonesha Jackson
02:33:20

Jen Norling
02:33:27
Truth healing reconciliation repair. It's time.
Antonesha Jackson
02:34:27
WE NEED OUR AFRICAN AMERICAN ACADEMY BACK!
jack son!
02:34:52
y'all have to stop living in illusions. let's look at the reality of 100 year old orgs that started the Museum.
Antonesha Jackson
02:36:31
We need the churches to be empowerment centers focused on education & economic development every day! Don’t sell the land build on it so the community can stay here.

Leilani Lewis
02:42:32
Work with the museum to bring it up and work together?
tony
02:43:48
the museum needs to work with the originators not the other way around
jack son!
02:44:05
these facilitates only cause us to assimilate to amerikan genocide! while a small group of us become mindless zombies
Leilani Lewis
02:44:14
Absolutely! I think the door is open for working together
Leilani Lewis
02:44:26
Hate to see us divided
Leilani Lewis
02:44:55
no police have been called on Omari at all
tony
02:45:06
hate to see it too. calling the police and calling him diseased isn't working together
tony
