The

Redbird

Project

Economic Liberation

The Redbird Project initiative was created to honor our dear ancestor Iverson W. Lane; who fought U.S. apartheid and was victorious in the Supreme Court battle over voting rights in 1939: Lane v. Wilson.

Mayor Iverson W. Lane was a highly influential leader in the all-Black town of Redbird, OK. As a business and community leader, he leveraged his position in the fight to free Black people from terrorism and genocide in the U.S.

We continue the pursuit of a true democratic order, thru collaboration with global African organizations and institutions such as the African Union Agenda 2063.

Ecosystems of Peace

The purpose of our project is create economic pipelines which connect African people to quality services globally. Holistic needs-based investments increase success rates, remove poverty and facilitate community healing, innovation, and meaningful exchange.

Wells of Brilliance

The Redbird Project (TRbP) focuses on cultivating and supporting the untapped genus which saturates the marginalized segments of the African Diaspora.

Values Based Process

Our trainings and courses affirm our collective family, spiritual, and care-taking roots; which anchor our dealings and endeavors with one another. Do No Harm is our guiding intention, and to benefit our people is our primary motivation.

Legacy

Two key questions frame the rubric that oppressed Africans must use to measure the impact of our actions:

1) How does it free us?

2) How does it keep us free?

Leveraging Tech

Tech tools provide a natural pathway to subvert failed colonial structures. These advances also present new opportunities to serve our community in more transparent and effective ways.

Economic Philosophy

This universal tenet can be readily observed at any of our cookouts – anywhere on the planet. It is summarized  by two words:

Everybody Eats!
