300 Mission & Vision
Why Is This Community Important
This community is important for many reasons. We believe it is important that black people are able to see that we can accomplished any independently in a way that is free from outside control or influence. We am aware that slavery ended in 1865, and there are many that believe freedom began, at that time. That is far from the truth. Yes, things are different since the days of antebellum slavery, but our subjugation hasn’t ended…It has just changed form. The 300 sole purpose is to show our members that we can flourish as a community as long as we build AS A COMMUNITY.
Mission & Purpose
To build, maintain and pass to future generations the mind set of economic self-determination. Our vision is to create a virtual & physical community who lives by a common code that we determined ourselves. In our group we will build a WHOLE community both economically and socially. Change begins with us. We are done with the mind set of asking for a seat at your table…At 300 we will build our own DAMN HOUSE! So let’s start by uniting and growing internally. We can do this by exercising our ability to buy & socialize with ourselves, build our own political power base…AND mostly importantly we will re-learn how to just love being black AGAIN.
