Be More Green is an all-vegan business located in Baltimore, Maryland. The grocery store offers a free selection of produce to combat food insecurity. The free grocery model was founded by Dominic Nell. Dominic is affectionately known as “Farmer Nell”, and he created Be More Green to reduce food apartheid in USDA food deserts. Based on the international #TheFutureIsGreen movement that promotes a healthier community narrative. They specialize in processing fresh fruit directly from orchards and know exactly how to provide quality and healthy drinks. BE MORE GREEN is the social impact & innovation wing of CityWeeds.
CityWeeds is a trauma-informed food business that strives to eliminate food deserts and improve the health, wellness, and independence of Baltimore City residents through the growing and selling of microgreens and cold-pressed juices.
CityWeeds was also founded by Dominic “Farmer” Nell in 2016 after the tragic murder of Freddie Gray and the Baltimore Uprising. These events encouraged Farmer Nell to reflect on the distress faced by city residents and the healing needed in his West Baltimore neighborhood. Farmer Nell’s vision for CityWeeds is to feed and heal the community by growing food out of vacant lots.
The AFRICANS WITH EPILEPSY will be a great event. Feel free to come and invite family and friends.

LIBATIONS / ANCESTRAL TRIBUTES
LIBATIONS / ANCESTRAL TRIBUTES A Libation Ceremony is an ancient form of prayer. A petition is made while pouring water or alcohol to the Creator and to the passed over ancestors, for their assistance with our human affairs. The libation is symbolic of invoking these energies. We speak aloud the names of those we have lost. It is customary to say a prayer giving thanks and appreciation for the guidance and blessings received.

Saturday July 30 and Sunday July 31 BEPAA and CEMOTAP hosted the 24th annual Dr. John Henrik Clarke Tribute. It was amazing.

Much respect to the moderator of the event, Dr. James Mcintosh, who is also the surgeon General of the UNIA-ACL. The tribute raised funds to donate to the CLARKE house. The Board for the Education of People of African Ancestry (BEPAA), is a Harlem-based 501C 3 non-profit organization. BEPAA acquired 286 Convent Avenue almost 20 years ago. Named “Clarke House” in honor of Dr. John Henrik Clarke, a history scholar and leader in the advancement of African culture in this country, BEPAA conducts research, seminars, and workshops and carries out various educational programs within this facility in Harlem. The organization was founded by Dr. Adelaide Sanford, a legendary orator, educator and former Vice Chancellor of the New York State Board of Regents. The Clarke House is completely owned. But we need our pan africans and Garveyites to help keep up the maintenance. To help contribute fill out the form below photos.

The Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore City (BCSAO) is responsible for the prosecution of all crimes that occur in Baltimore City. Employing over 200 attorneys and an additional 200 administrative and support staff, the BCSAO is the largest local prosecutorial office in the state of Maryland and prosecutes over 40,000 cases each year. ( ACCORDING TO THE BCSAO WEBSITE ). As of now, the States Attorney for Baltimore is a black sister by the name of Marilyn Mosby. With such a powerful position comes great responsibility and scrutiny.
Ms. Mosby has been under fire for a while. Some of her issues comes from the Keith Davis Jr. case. In June of 2015, an innocent Keith Davis Jr. was cornered by police in a West Baltimore garage where they shot at him 44 times, striking him 3 times. Although Keith Davis Jr. miraculously survived, he’s endured several trials, no lasting convictions and years of incarceration. Baltimore’s state attorney Marilyn Mosby protected the officers who shot Keith and then prosecuted Keith for crimes he did not commit. Mosby was recently ordered to appear in court because she violated a gag order on the case. FOR MORE INFO ON KEITH DAVIS JR CLICK HERE!
It doesn’t stop there. WBALTV 11, just one of the many of the media outlets reported in January 2022 a federal grand jury indicted Mosby on federal charges of perjury and making false mortgage applications, relating to the 2020 purchases of two vacation homes in Florida. According to the four-count indictment, Mosby claimed to have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to withdraw from the city’s Deferred Compensation Plan on two separate occasions, receiving $40,000 and $50,000. But documents show she continued to receive her full salary during the pandemic, which was a gross salary in 2020 of $247,955.58 and it was never reduced: “Rather than experiencing a reduction in income in 2020, Mosby’s gross salary in 2020 increased over her gross salary in 2019, which was $238,772.04,” the indictment states.
The drama does not stop. The Baltimore Sun reported that Mosby’s felony prosecutorial units have been consistently understaffed, the level of experience for attorneys in her office has dropped off substantially, and morale is depleted. Mosby called it “misinformation” but declined to say what in the story was wrong. Mosby dismissed news reports about the staffing woes as misguided and politically charged. The budget hearing and questions about staffing in the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office come as Mosby faces reelection and a federal criminal case against her.
While the black community in Baltimore is focused on Police reform, and other offices up for election. The citizens of Baltimore can not lose focus on the POLITICAL RACE for the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s office. ” This is critical! With all that is going on, the office that prosecutes criminals to keep our community safe, is the same office which gets scrutinized for falsely prosecuting people. One hand washes the other. We need to really focus on who is running against Ms Mosby. We need to really evaluate her as the States attorney. I am not saying to vote for someone else. I am saying it’s our duty to put someone in office that is not only going to do the job, but understand the pain in the community itself”, stated Everett Winchester who is the President of the Baltimore UNIA-ACL Division 106 Barca-Clarke. ” One, we need to hold our elected officials to the highest standards. Two, what is the agenda of this office. Three, is the sister being railroaded, or she just isn’t cutting the mustard! We cannot take this election for this office for granted.”, the division president stressed.
The major candidates running are Ivan Bates, Marilyn J. Mosby, Thiru Vignarajah. The Baltimore Sun Newspaper has endorsed Ivan Bates while the Governor of Maryland is endorsing Thiru Vignarajah. The Afro News is endorsing Ms. Mosby. It is also believed she still has major support in the community. There seems to be a lot of mixed reviews. One thing we do know, if the wrong person gets elected, it could harm the black community. Baltimore city wake up. This is critical that we get on it.
