Nationwide "A Black Empowerment Manifesto" (BEM) is the brainchild of Errol Gibbs. His inspiration to write the "manifesto" came after 50 years (1970 – 2020), observing the challenges that Blacks face in the North American Diaspora, and worldwide. More importantly, participating in Black History Month (BHM) celebrations in Canada over the past 25 years (1995 – 2020) inspired the writing of the manifesto.

The COVID-19 pandemic's impact revealed the health vulnerability of people of color, particularly Blacks and indigenous peoples. The death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, a 46-year old black American male in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill, opened fissures in the black-white racial divide. These two epoch-making events ought to be a turning for a better Black America, and the world. Worldwide - people of all "races," colors, cultures, genders, and social and economic backgrounds took to the streets in protest marches.

The Canadian response has also been historical. Canadians took to the streets to demonstrate solidarity with Black Americans. The outcry has caused many corporate executives, and governmental agencies to investigate their inequitable responses to blacks' concerns over several decades. Many are aware that they have contributed to limiting the Black community's growth - from educational, political, corporate, and social and economic empowerment perspectives.

Some global corporations have taken the lead, offering to fund Black community organizations and establish Employment Equity Initiatives (EEI) ―voluntarily. Praise to Wes Hall, ICD.D, Executive Chairman, KSS Group of Companies, and his executive partners for leading the BlackNorth Initiative virtual Summit on July 20, 2020. "Anti-Black systemic racism has to end," Hall said. "As business leaders, we must be aware that (systemic racism) has a material impact on our business, our Black employees and their families" (CTV News: David Paddon: Monday, July 20, 2020, 4:03 PM EDT).

Corporate executives are aware that money is crucial as a "stop-gap" measure. The greater need is to build permanent and capable infrastructure (educational, academic, intellectual, medical, political, legal, justice, industrial, housing, and social and economic), lest the historical experiences of Black lives repeat. Errol's response is "A Black Empowerment Manifesto" (BEM). He wrote the manifesto, looking through the prisms of Black Canadian experiences, in addition to a global perspective, with some relevant intersections that underpin Black life - worldwide.

The manifesto is historical and practical in its outlook. It offers 15 Innovative Suggestions that can address Black empowerment from new and unique permanent macro-level - infrastructure perspectives. It calls for a change in mindset - particularly an "industrial mindset". These mindset changes are indispensable as the world enters the transformational Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) or Industry 4.0.
