The Black Reality Think Tank will feature one the great African American poets and writers of our time, Marvin X. Jackmon. Because of X’s affiliations with Black Panther activists of the day (Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale and Eldridge Cleaver) and his work in Black theater with Ed Bullins, X is considered one of the major essayists and playwrights of the Black Aesthetics Movement.

Black Reality Think Tank is a historical research network designed to provide information and discussion on African life & history. One must understand history is the key to African liberation. It is the life blood of our survival. It is the story and the journey of our ancestors. We support the philosophy that comes from the wisdom of one of our mighty ancestors, Dr. John Henrik Clarke “all of history is a current event.” Our goal and objective here at Black Reality Think Tank is to understand the past, dissect the present, and support implementing a meaningful future.
