ABOUT US

Innovators. Dreamers.

The concrete scholar is a small collective of Black Prisoners who have committed their lives towards uplifting the Afrikan Amerikan community and transforming the black criminal gangster mentality into a mid-set designed to serve the best interest of our communities.  Abdul Shakur is the creator of the concrete scholars collective, and is also one of its most prolific activists. This particular website is devoted to the work and contributions of brother Abdul Olugbala Shakur. We also intend to use this website as a platform and medium to rally support for Abdul who has been in prison approximately 40 years now, and has spent 32 plus years of this in solitary confinement/isolation. We believe that his work from prison will benefit all of society, and not just the Afrikan-Amerikan communities.  My name is Sharifa Shakur, I am the creator of this website and its primary coordinator. I am also the wife of Abdul Olugbala Shakur whom I have been married to for 21 years and have fought by his side unconditionally.

LINKS AND INFORMATION TO OUR PROJECTS & PROPOSALS BY ABDUL O. SHAKUR

By Abdul Olugbala Shakur

1} “The Pan-Afrikan Global Commissioner Against Huger”

This is a proposal designed to eradicate hunger and starvation via the Black Diaspora. We understand

that this proposal alone will not eradicate Black Hunger, this can only be accomplished working in conjunction with other efforts.

2} “Black community Emergency Response Network Manual.”

After Hurricane Katrina we really learned how unprepared our communities were in the face of a Natural/Crisis: The Covid-19 pandemic is also once again displaying our vulnerability as an unprepared community. This pamphlet for our people/community has the necessary and required information that would increase their capacity to survive a Natural/Crisis.

3} Assata Shakur Network:

This Network is specifically designed to find our missing Black Children and women; but what distinguishes us from the rest, is our primary function to prevent the abduction and/or rape and molestation of our children and women. (We do have a mission Statement).

4} New Afrikan Criminology 101 Academy:

Nobody understands the crime problems in our communities like we do. The Government/Law enforcement has failed to find a solution to this problem, in fact it is not their responsibility to resolve this problem, it is our responsibility to stabilize our communities, which encompasses the eradication of Black Criminal behavior.

5) Operation Hip-Hop Rescue:

Our Collective has developed our own methods for addressing Black Gang activities/violence. We believe that the Black Gang can be transformed into community-based groups designed to serve our community. This proposal is designed to facilitate the transformation of Black Gangs and remove the negative elements.

6) Mobile Health Clinics:

We believe if we are to effectively combat high blood pressure, diabetes, and other illnesses that we suffer from at a higher than others. We intend to be active in pressure, this process, going door to door, and keep a secured record of the health of our community/people.

7) Operation Green Future:

Brother Abdul developed this plan for transforming our communities into green-technology based dependent areas where green-technology is the primary source of energy and employment.  This was originally written for major Lumumba representing Jackson Mississippi. As an Attorney for activists, Mr. Lumumba advised brother Abdul on his legal matters.

8) Marcus Garvey Study Group:

The MGSG is a project that is specifically designed to teach our History, especially about those Individuals that are not mentioned for the most part in mainstream schools. We believe if they knew their true history they would not find that need to resort to, then selling of drugs in order to survive.

9) George Jackson University (GJU):

The GJU was designed to transform the Prison Industrial Sate-complex into the largest University in the country designed to facilitate the transportation of our imprisoned brothers and sisters. We also have a radio program that is hosted by Bomani Shakur, GJU radio, providing community activists with a platform to share their programs and what is going on in their area, as well as in the country. We also use this platform to work with other community-based groups. The GJU radio program is on every Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. to 7 pm, 347-826-7332 call in and listen or visit www.georgejacksouniversity.com
