Republicans think that the NAACP is the only voice in the black community. It is a voice, but it’s not the only voice.

Our stories will only be accurate when WE tell them. Purposely Awakened provides community news that uplifts OUR community. We uplift our people in a positive light; hence, some topics that we cover are events, non-profts, grand openings, and the list goes on.

The Black Community is Black America. Members of Black America are citizens of the United States of America. Also they are citizens of the states, counties, cities and municipalities in which they reside. It is a concept that goes far beyond the color of one’s skin; an experience of being Black in the United States. It’s a society whose culture is waiting to be re-defined. This definition or concept is not designed to ignore other Blacks in the Americas, but to evolve the strength and power of Blacks as citizens of the United States of America. Too often Blacks in the United States function as if they are not citizens.

Black Consciousness seeks to infuse the black community with a new-found pride in themselves, their efforts, their value systems, their culture, their religion and their outlook to life.
