Congress of Racial Equality: Ambitious Civics Program

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was created in 1942 by black and white students in Chicago and has historically been a driving force in the Civil Rights movement in the United States.  CORE activists marched with Martin Luther King Jr., and after a short stint with Reverend Jesse Jackson the organization became silent for a while.  The only member of the organization remaining a part of the leadership since the early seventies when Jackson's co-leadership led to the group becoming quite militant is Roy Innis, the current National Chairman of CORE.

Roy's son, Niger Innis, whose civil rights and political activities have made him a much sought after national personality, is the National Spokesperson for CORE*.  As a nationally recognized conservative leader, Niger and CORE's board have gathered together through the organization an amalgamation of church leaders and political advocates who seek to revitalize the organization's activity in the civil rights movement, while channeling its activities through a more Godly likeness.  In that pursuit, and with the understanding that the troubles in Hispanic and black communities stems from cultural concerns, CORE has been developing educational programs aimed at informing minority communities of the principles and philosophies regarding liberty and the American System.

In the Hispanic community, as the political winds continue to push towards creating new pathways for the legalization of illegal aliens and "the Dreamers" (children born on American soil to illegal immigrant parents), the task before us as constitutionalists is to decide if we are satisfied with those new legal residents believing the misinformation they are being fed by the statist media and political establishment.  Or, are we going to use community organizing and education program strategies to properly inform the new residents of what the American System is really about, and the importance of patriotic assimilation?

In the black community, as the political winds have turned violent and divisive, we must realize that the problem has nothing to with skin, and everything to do with culture, and our society's move away from godliness.  The American System was inspired by Divine Providence, and if we build a foundation in the black community based on an education platform that involves civics, the philosophies of an orderly society, and the principles of liberty established by America's founding documents, we can steer the culture back to a virtuous base and establish a healthier understanding of politics, economics, and godliness.

CORE has invited me to assist the civil rights organization in establishing a network of civics and constitution classes throughout California.  I have been teaching my own classes regarding the United States Constitution since February of 2008 in the Inland Empire (Western Riverside County), California.  I have authored three books regarding constitutional studies.  I have been a public speaker regarding constitutional literacy for eight years, and I have been broadcasting my constitutional viewpoints on terrestrial AM radio since 2011.

As the Director of Civics and Constitutional Studies, it will be my job to establish and coordinate the classes, hiring the instructors from within the neighborhoods, training the instructors, and providing the curriculum and materials.  The program is scheduled to begin in January of 2017.  Below is video of the press conference to announce the new partnership between myself, and CORE.

* In addition to serving as the National Spokesperson for CORE, Niger Innis is also a member of the Congressional Advocacy Team for, Co-Chairman of the Affordable Power Alliance (APA), member of the Advisory Committee for Project 21 for the National Center for Public Policy Research, consultant to (Empowerment and Excellence Cable channel), serves on the NRA Membership Committee and is an NRA Lifetime member.
