No Struggle, No Progress
"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters."
"This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. In the light of these ideas, Negroes will be hunted at the North, and held and flogged at the South so long as they submit to those devilish outrages, and make no resistance, either moral or physical. Men may not get all they pay for in this world; but they must certainly pay for all they get. If we ever get free from the oppressions and wrongs heaped upon us, we must pay for their removal.
We must do this by labor, by suffering, by sacrifice, and if needs be, by our lives and the lives of others."
Frederick Douglass, 1857

As 2000 Nigerians
Were Killed Earlier This Year
Fenwick High School Students
The Black American community, the international African community and the greater world community were mostly silent as 2,000 Nigerians were killed by Boko Haram earlier this year, but not the students from Fenwick High School in Oak Park, Illinois! See some of the 2,000 people killed below and click here to see Fenwick students raise awareness about this massacre!

Do "Black Lives Matter" in Ferguson, Missouri or Selma, Alabama but not in Baga, Nigeria? Click Here to ask the White House to evaluate and act responsibly on this issue in Nigeria.
There is no reason for your child to be left behind in school or in life. You must take control of your child's education. Those who control the education of the children control the future of that race.

Are you a father of a child age 2-5?
Are you African-American?
Do you live apart from your child?
Do you want to participate in a fatherhood program for African-American fathers?

This Research Study is Just for Fathers!
Nurse researchers at Rush University Medical Center will be testing 2 programs that are meant to help fathers who don't live with their young children to be really great fathers. Even though you don't live with your child on a full time basis, we know that your children are important to you. We also know that children need the positive and consistent involvement of their fathers. This program is intended to give fathers knowledge and skills that will help you maintain a strong, loving and consistent relationship with your young child.
  • Be randomly assigned to participate in one of the 2 programs.
  • Attend 10 group- meetings with other fathers over the next 3 months.
  • Groups will be held in the community at nearby Community Colleges.
  • Complete study questions 3 times while you are in the study (before the groups start, at the end of the groups, and again 3 months later).
  • Fathers will receive a $40 gift card for completing study questions ($120 total).
  • Group meetings with other fathers will include a meal and transportation reimbursement.
  • Fathers will have the chance to share their experiences being a father with other fathers.
  • Fathers will learn more about preparing themselves to be strong and effective fathers for their children.
If you are interested in this research study, give us a call on the D.A.A.D. study telephone line at (312) 563-3566. A research assistant will contact you.
