Starting on Monday, April 27th, 2015, in the spirit of the Black Panther Party, Convention People’s Party, Democratic Party of Guinea, African Party for the Independence of Guinea-Bissau, and other ancestors and elders, we will be providing free breakfast to African (Black) children in the New Columbia area of North Portland.  The program will take place every Monday and Friday from 7:00am to 8:00am.  The menu will be pancakes/waffles, eggs, fruit, juice, and water.  The only requirement to participate is children must be registered.  You can register your child by sending us a message with your child’s name, age, and any food allergies.  You can send a message by clicking on the contact us button above (above right).  We are not turning away any children, so if your child is not of African descent, but needs breakfast, and you understand that our program is specific to addressing African liberation and forward progress, then your child is welcome.  

While the children eat we will be reading to them and talking to them about the positive elements of our culture as African people and our desires to build a better world.  Our intent is to provide a safe, positive, and supportive atmosphere to prepare our children to handle living in this backward society while teaching them that we can build something better.  The program will take place at the Columbia International Cup Coffee Shop at 9022 N. Newman Ave.  If you want your child to participate and/or you want to support, you can contact us via this website.  You can also make contributions to assist us with the program by clicking on the button below.  

Update!  The breakfast program is well underway!  We are feeding 30+ children each session.  We can definitely use your help!  Thank you!


Hey guys!

First of all I want to thank everyone that has taken the time to reblog, follow and submit this blog. I recently made a promotional video for the project which can be found in the # APRP tag, posted from my personal blog.

What I want you guys to do is just keep going! Keep reblog-ing and sharing and keep telling people about the voice we want to give them, make a video or post of your own and tag it # APRP and let’s see how far we can get the word out. Thanks to everyone who’s been helping with this project, and every single story that has been submitted have been wonderful.

I also wanted to ask whether you guys think it would be useful to add some submission criteria to the blog? Some outlines and basic questions to help people say what they want to say. Some people have been a bit confused about what they were being asked to submit, so do you guys think this would be a good idea?

Let me know!
