A MESSAGE TO THE MASSES FROM BLONKA MACK
Blonka Mack is an elite modern-day historian, Warren Easton Hall of Famer, recipient of the key to The City of New Orleans, founder of the Blonka Movement, mother to E’Lon King, and impactful author of the Book Of Keyz Part 1 & 2, spearheading the Blonka Movement 4:44 Financial Literacy World Tour.
Please help us raise $1.1 million plus our book fees to expand our successful world tour. We have toured over 23 schools responding to the nation following 400 years of starvation. Financial freedom is our only hope. To our youth: stop robbing your community and let the Blonka Movement (B.M.) educate and partner with you. Reform yourself and recalibrate your thinking while establishing a business to elevate your family’s name to the next level.
Blonka Movement is teaching credit and supreme wisdom at Jay-Z’s high school alma mater, George Westinghouse Career & Technical Education CTE Department, in Brooklyn, New York. Collectively, we’ve donated over 20,000 college readiness textbooks globally, valued at $15 million.
The time is now. We must unite for global change, bringing awareness of financial literacy, economic advancement, mental health, prison reform, stopping violence, and suicide awareness in underserved communities. To make it from poverty and create generational wealth leaves a spiritual sense of selflessness in the universe.
There are 2,755 billionaires worldwide, but only 15 are African American. African-American creators are the first to create and the last to break black and international barriers. We barely address the systematic laws that govern we, the people, and shape our children’s future and the pavement they will walk on. We must all be mindful that there is a person at every step along the way that we will pave.
In his song, “Family Feud,” off his 4:44 album, Jay-Z says, “We’re all screwed because we never had the tools.” Financial literacy gives us the tools to create financial freedom.
That entire album sparked the thought and needed dialogue behind the successful Blonka Movement 4:44 Financial Literacy World Tour that inked a partnership between G-House. She works with the C.T.E. Department in the B.M. Reach 1 Teach 1 Program teaching education.
Blonka and staff do a Q&A with students to identify their career interests, HBCUs of choice, or dream schools. Blonka teaches her scholars to appreof ciate their deck cards because they could always have been worse. They are blessed, and their time and energy are better spent on finding solutions than complaining.
Blonka and staff have fostered meaningful relationships with students and big brother and sister bonds with our elite schools of choice worldwide. The B.M. Mentorship Program is next level. Affiliated paragon mentors range from pillars of local communities to former White House officials, celebrities, and paragon leaders. They help shape mentees’ new perspectives on life through a wiser lens that guides their professional dreams and ideas. With our elite panel members, their dreams become tangible, and the students become believers in positive ways outside of street life to support their families and everyday needs.
Realistically, not everyone can be a great rapper or singer, but they can become the next president or historian under our administration. We’re here for a more significant cause than ourselves, and we can’t take materials with us when the dust settles. Trying without quitting is the formula for consistency. Remember that a teacher was once a student, and humbleness takes us further than ego. Book Of Keyz Part 1 & 2 is the Keyz to unlocking a new mindset. Based on the student feedback, it should be # 1 on everyone’s list. A student once told Blonka that her book saved her from suicide, and the uplifting quotes balance her depression when she’s not feeling her best. Hearing feedback like that is why Blonka remains inspired every second of the day. This is not a role that she plays; this is the calling that chose her, and her impact on youth is a godsend, says the historian.
