To answer your question my brother, I do not want to be caught in a lie. So I must say, that I do not know exactly where the money go. However, I do know that we have a co-op that is fully up and running, and that we have farms in America to do our own work on.
On these farms, we have free living quaters, free food, and free clothing. Everything is soley taken care of by black people for black people.
Any black person is welcome to attend all the boards meetings that are held, and any black person can speak to all the brothers and sisters who hed up various projets for the UNIA.
Like I said, I was impressed at how the UNIA in Philly was so self sufficient. I remeber the first time I sat in there, I felt at peace. I remeber walking through the campus of Temple University to get there. By the time I got through all the hussle and bussle of modern comotions, I was about a block from the UNIA, when I heard a voice scream......"SISTER......SISTER". That voice would become known to me as Brother Ramses. He shook my hand, and once inside I was given several xerox copies of African information, and her rivers. Being how I love history, I was more than appreciative.
As brother Ramses started giving me more copies, I started taking in all the pictures on the walls of our beloved brother Marcus Garvey. I also saw old newspaper clippings about the UNIA, and our own newspaper, which helped wake up the black man and woman in America.
While Ramases was running off more copies to give me, I saw another brother who appeared to be an artisan. He was carving all sorts of African images, and was teaching me in the process. I immedietly felt at home.
After that, Ramases showed me a lecture hall that they built by themselves, that is ajoining to the other building. In this hall many great scholars once stood, and continue to teach the Idren of Africa the truth that has been hidden from us for centuries.
Once agian we raise our own money for the lectures. It is called the "people lecture series", or the "University lecture series". But all funds go to funding the UNIA, so that we remain a constant force in the black community.
I know that you did not ask for all this information, but I just wanted to share this with you.
Always in love for InI Idren Jah Rastafari Empress Menen Bless
