Smart Practices

As a child the founder of African American Registry was encouraged to always seek first class citizenship in life. He was also warned to the facts of black life, working more to receive less. His plateau of American nationality drives the intent of our mission to inspire the young minds of our future. To accurately gather, publish and teach youths our content is phase one of the smart practices of our work.

Cultural competency as a measured goal against anti-racism work is a challenge that is as old as the United States of America itself. Education is not a quick remedy for this but a needed one. Using African American heritage is a qualitative source point for success. This is because descendants of American slavery have arguably the strongest track record of upward mobility of any non white American community.

We use historic philosophically, honest subject matter and models to work from. Some of our hypothesis’ come from Egypts Hebrew slavery and African heritage. Others include 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century American abolitionist.  Additionally 20th and 21st century activism and more further frame our educational and informational agenda. This content shapes our curriculum, classroom service and youth programs’ commitment to young people.

If a harmonious society is a goal the following acknowledgment must be addressed. Internal mediocrity in African America and European (white) America present certain barriers to equitable success. In general, many from both communities live and breath the messages that were (are) systemically used to create servitude, false empowerment, dependency, oppression and low self esteem.

Our methods use the following formula with our content; history + culture = heritage. Those three themes, repetitively instilled in young people and are crucial to the success of our smart practices. When heritage is known, it helps all youth to better realize their individual and collective importance in the world. This allows them to describe the things they want to improve and explain how they are going to improve them. As Frederick Douglass once said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
