Flooding from Hurricane Harvey hit the city of Houston hard. Real hard. And then Beaumont. And many other parts of Texas. Billions The recovery and rebuilding is expected to be for years to come. However, many wasted no time in getting involved in grassroots efforts to help those impacted by the Harvey. One just have to scroll through social media and you will see so many organizations, music artists, churches, etc. doing some amazing work. Here are a few I’ve come across thus far.
Our Christian family at The Word Church on the grounds. ✊🏾 #Repost @jjohnson80 ・・・ After seemingly being trapped we finally were able to break free and get to help our community! Huge shoutout to our The WORD Church @twc4me and The Fulfillment Project @the_fulfillment_project partners for answering the call once again! We are a long way away from the finish line, but I’m grateful we’ve started! #Houston #HurricaneHarvey #HoustonStrong #Harvey2017 #PrayingForHouston #Repost @hisladyjohnson (@get_repost) ・・・ I’m tired, but what a great day of serving. Being there is nothing like watching it on the news. People are truly hurting😞Thanks to the partners of The Word Church who came immediately and started working at the M.O. Campbell Center. The Facilities Manager put The Word Church in charge of the distribution of supplies and it was handled in pure excellence. After hours of working we headed back to The Word Church where the road to recovery has already begun there. I am truly grateful!

❗️MAKING WORD BOND❗️We must give a major shoutout to Jermaine Gotti; recording artist, producer, publisher and owner of 21st Street Studios. He’s also the cousin of Brother Linton muhammad. In support of the “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day we hosted last month at King’s Row Apartments, he gave away a free 2 hour studio session to one of the young and hungry artists from Sunnyside that Brother Linton told him about. Last week it happened and it was awesome to witness.
We’ve been consistently building with Jermaine in the Southeast streets for months now and built a bond with him. So he and the “Greedy 1224” squad were chosen to experience being in a high-powered studio like this for the first time.
JGotti opened by sharing jewels with them from his experience in the music industry. Then these young gods went to work with engineer Dre. They went in with focus; they didn’t play around with the time. And they ended up doing two songs. Dre expressed how impressed he was with how much they got done in a short amount of time. They all expressed gratitude for this entire experience and on the ride back home, one of them said, “It feels good to have someone show us love like this. We’ll never forget this.”
Thank you JGotti for giving back in a major way. This generation is not to be slept on. 💯💯
Don’t sleep on this generation…As we were out going door-to-door in the Southeast Houston community, these young gods asked us for a copy of The Final Call Newspaper and then started sharing their thoughts on Presidents Obama and Trump. One of them even ran over to the others nearby playing catch with a baseball and said, “Man, look who is on the cover of their paper.” And another one had a few “choice words” for Trump.😂😂😂 … maaaaan we love this generation! They fuel us to keep pushing in the streets spreading life, light and power. • #TheFinalCall #Farrakhan #NationOfIslam #blackgods
Ms. Juanita aka “The Kool Cup Lady” is a mother of the Southeast Houston community we’ve been consistently pushing on the corners and going door to door in. The young people adore her. She has become our family and she always expresses her appreciation and love for the work Allah is blessing us to do weekly in the area. And in the midst of a very serious turbulent moment today, she was comforted by our presence that de-escalated a violent situation that could have possibly led to gunfire. All Praise is Due to Allah. We thank Allah for The Example & Guidance of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. He just said on The Cliff Kelley Show, “The F.O.I. is out in the streets; out in the worst neighborhoods trying to bring peace. We could do more, but we need your help…Don’t stand on sideline and just watch for us.” #Farrakhan #TheFinalCall #mission #squashthebeef #2FrontWar [📸 @lintonmuhammad]

WATCH THE FULL PRESS CONFERENCE BELOW.
Women and girls of various ages, religions, and social economic backgrounds came together as one sisterhood at the Shrine of the Black Madonna located 5309 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Houston, TX 77021 on February 11, 2017 to support Queendom Come, Inc’s Fundraiser “THE CROWNING”.
The Shrine was the perfect gathering place for this royal affair hosted by the founders of Queendom Come Inc as it’s a purposeful space of enlightenment and love. As women were walking in the venue throughout the day wearing head pieces, scarves, wraps, turbans, weaves, afros, dread locks, braids, to support the organization it was evident that each felt welcomed and a sense of belonging. The décor was modernly regal as purple African fabric draped the furnishing and weaved around candles lightly burning to illuminate the stage as Queen Wakiti opened up the gathering with prayer. The beaded crystals cascading along the stairs with a gold crown placed in the center of a small glass table attracted the audience into the sacred setting where Queen Oshea gave a succinct introduction of the mission of the nonprofit and spoke on the purpose for the occasion.
(Source: Queendom Come, Inc. Newswire) The purpose of The Crowning Fundraiser was to provide women of color with a space to embrace their natural beauty and empower others to do the same. The intention of the gathering was to celebrate women of color who’ve made a choice to cover their heads based on consciousness of culture, historical pride, religious significance, or freedom of creativity. All those in attendance were able to listen to a diverse panel that openly discussed topics: such as, “cultural identity”; “the trend in head wrapping as a fashion in relation to historical significance”; “religious beliefs and value in women covering their hair”, as well as “the stigma against natural hairstyles in corporate America” and “The negative reaction of the beauty industry against ethnic styles”.
The esteemed panelist consisted of the Southwest regional MGT & GCC St. Captain of the Nation of Islam, Sister Valerie Muhammad, along with Coco Bates, an editor and fashion blogger. Also on center stage were, Joy Ekhator, a natural hair product entrepreneur of Nigerian descent and a wise scholar and matriarch of the community, Dr. Daa’iyah Farooq, whom offered insightful remarks on these sensitive gender issues. Unlike other self promoting fundraisers, this event offered an opportunity for other nonprofit organizations to network and work together to bring exposure to programs and resources that are dedicated to improving the condition of minority women and girls. Queendom Come founders know that they cannot do it alone so the theme repeatedly reiterated by the organizers during the program was that “Queens don’t compete, we collaborate”.
Queendom Come, Inc. recognizes that there is limitless immeasurable value in the female. Queendom Come, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit female empowerment and mentoring organization established to teach, train and nurture girls as they transition to adults. The organization founders strongly believe that working to develop positive feminine expression, as well as providing inspirational role models and a caring support system to the youth and their mothers/guardians can significantly improve the lives of females in our society. Queendom Come, Inc’s mission is to teach and train females to value their self worth and virtue by cultivating the Queen within. Thus in an effort to raise funds to continue the progress that the organization has achieve, the founders and volunteers sold tickets while also soliciting sponsors to prepare for The Crowning fundraiser event. During the event there were innovative initiatives presented to address collective cultural concerns, a hilariously entertaining interactive head-wrapping competition, and a hands on protective styling demonstration presented by Malaika Phoenix Ali of UrbHol Vibe Inc., a lifestyle company.
Inside the venue, the attendees would stop to shop with the black business owners vending beautifully designed clothing, custom jewelry, and natural hair care products at this exclusive female only event. Innovated School of Beauty located in Pearland came out with an informational table to encourage youth to pursue cosmetology. Another benefit received by the participants, is that this event allowed collaboration with a diverse group of women from various professions and organizations. It was a united front as Queen Sadiyah instructed the women to gather together to close the gaps and connect in their shared space, then she directed them to hug each sister on the left and right. You could observe the mutual adoration that the women held for each other by simply knowing that they had agreed and made a commitment to support the community by attending this event.
Queen Qiana shared information about the Ascension program while passionately reminding the audience that their generous donations submitted for the occasion would allow Queendom Come Inc to work with girls across this city and state. At the conclusion of the event there were many who were eager to volunteer with the organization so the founders were grateful to establish long-lasting partnerships with others with a shared interest. Therefore, “The Crowning” not only brought in a monetary increase to a burgeoning organization, but it also enabled the expansion of a valuable sister circle that is needed to help every female create a life fit for a Queen.
