Brother Tracy Gibson has attended a free community class at the Wharton School for Business at the University of Pennsylvania in Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship and can tell you how to attend these free classes [Log onto: www.buildingbrodgesofhope Look for Professor Keith Weingel’s  [check spelling of name] Name, the attending professor. Some lectures are available on the net for free. At Wharton.] {Look Up}.com ; He also took a Business-Plan writing class at the Temple University’s  Small Business Development Center and is a proud former member of the Board of Friends of Somafco, a multi-cultural group that does support services for South Africa’s poor; and a former Board member of The African American Freedom and Reconstruction League.  Suggested Book: ``Our Black Year,’’ By Maggie Anderson.

Disclaimer: Brother Gibson’s plan is to help more people in the community link-in to Linked-In [A business and professional referral service on the Net; and establish schools and support other existing educational institutions to help the community become better educated and fit more comfortably into the work force.  While He does NOT have an education degree, [He Graduated from The Ohio State University in 1978 with a degree in Journalism]--he is comfortable working with people from Opportunity Industries Center [OIC]; The National Urban league; and The Urban Coalition among others, but has NOT been endorsed by these organizations.  He is presently also working on having Philadelphia’s City Council designate 52nd Street as ``Africa Town.’’ The reasoning here is to allow Africans, African Americans and Black Caribbean’s  to have a legitimately designated stable place to carry out positive and necessary business in a consistent and orderly manner. To Sign the Petition for the Development and Support of ``Africa Town’’ go to the Afro-Centric Store at 52nd Street near Chancellor [221 South 52ns Street] and ask to sign the petition. 

To Apply to the Following other  Universities call the designated numbers [These Schools are NOT affiliated with Brother Tracy Gibson or His education Movement, except in the fact that He attended all these universities and colleges. Ask about scholarship information and loans [I would fully exhaust the scholarship option first. There are entire books on finding money for college available at the Free Library of Philadelphia and in other cities. :

[I found Temple University OK, but I found them too lax for my liking in regards to their insistence on class attendance.  I also found some of the classes I took to be lose in curriculum construction and just generally unstable.  I found other classes too challenging for me in regards to math and statistics, which I have always been weak on. I found a class on the history of Blacks in Film to be absolutely stupendous and interesting. So I guess you can say Temple was a mixed bag.  If you are serious about school and prepared, you will do well there. [Please remember that I attended classes at the master’s level way back in 1981. Their Master’s Programs have surely improved since then.]
 I must note that Temple University has a community Education Program called PASCEP [which stands for Pan African Studies Community Education Program.]  Classes are generally around $50.00 to $75.00, but are non-credit.  I found this program excellent for keeping my hands and fingers in the education market and meeting people and ole friends in similar interests areas and fields that I am interested in such as Building Renovation; English and Writing; Music and Rap; Law; and Vegetarian Cooking.

I was surprised when I took Business Management and Basic English Composition at Community College as refresher courses, to find a setting that was no push over and quite challenging.   I especially loved my English class and found the instructor competent, knowledgeable, and professional in nature.  Getting a two-year degree at Community College of Philadelphia is certainly worth the cost and effort, especially when the job market is down like it is right now.  Many people in the community don’t want to prioritize getting a good solid education or just can’t afford it.  [Unfortunately, they end up paying much more than the cost of tuition by getting caught up in small cycles of poverty, the social services network and struggling economically for months when they don’t have to.   My Sister said to me yesterday that we as Black People end of with future possible Physicist flipping hamburgers. Philadelphia’s Community College is well worth the effort, and cost, but be ready to work and be serious.
