    Hi I am a manager at City Without Walls art gallery here in Newark. I have been trying for months now to reach someone regarding the mature worker program. I have called an emailed severals times and haven’t gotten a response. Is this program still active/offered? Whom do I speak with? Is there an email or telephone number I can call. The last person I spoke with was Ms. Muhammed, but haven’t been able to reach her again for several months. Please let me know the program is still active and how would my organization go about applying for a worker?

    Thank you

    I’m a young 62 fairly healthy black man who has suffered loss of job, home and two siblings in a matter of 6 months. Try as I might getting back on track has been the most difficult challenges of my entire life. I recently applied and received Social Security but it’s not enough. I want to return to work as a Constable which is my first love and start my own business. For now I can only afford a clean quiet room. I don’t smoke drink or indulge in any destructive behavior. Where I’m staying now, my time is up! I need help! Will someone please help me? Contact me at this no. 704-771-2431. Thank you and may God bless you.

    Why do we have so many organizations fighting for Racial Justice; but none are truly seeking Racial Justice itself? You cannot achieve true Racial Justice until you deal with its true cause: which is not the color of the skin. But if you are a true fighter for “Justice for All” then you must begin at the beginning of its weaving and unwind the threads until you get to the right thread.

    The weaving of these threads begin during the time of the enslavement of the dark race of people: A weaving which begin by perverting biblical history, and can only be corrected by returning to the place, in your Bible, where the weaving began.

    And when you do this; you will find hidden the true cause of America’s Racial mirage. You will find the deceiver.
