The “No Negative Speak” blog is dedicated to helping us elders illustrate the principles of the No Negative Speak Movement by taking time to break down each of the principles into their individual working parts.
It is our goal to make sure that everyone understands each principle from multiple perspectives and everyday approaches so our readers can implement them into their daily lives.
WE BLACK OAKLAND ELDER PIONEERS ARE INFLUENCING BLACK OAKLAND AND OTHERS BY SHARING THE BLUE PRINT FOR US TO SPEAK TO EACH OTHER IN A POSITIVE WAY WITH “NO NEGATIVE SPEAK” WITH EACH OTHER MOTTO.
This is why the West Oakland Stories Positive Feeling Movement Organization is so important. It is designed to help wake you up to your natural positive self, which will cause most of us to come together so that we will do all the things we need to do if we are to survive.

The Elders are asking you to say “NO NEGATIVE SPEAK” to yourself two times a day for a week because you must make yourself aware first of negativity. “NNS” wakes you up in a positive way if you just say the words. Saying “NNS” makes everyone aware of negativity. Positive people make other people positive.
R. I. P. DR. KHALID ABDULLAH TARIQ AL- MANSOUR (ATTORNEY DON WARDEN) LEADER OF THE AFRO AMERICAN ASSOCIATION, OAKLAND CA.HISTORY:
The Black Handshake in America was created by Attorney Don Warden (Khalid AL-Mansour) and the Afro American Association members of Oakland CA around about 1960-61. Its creation was to help unify Black people.
Now the Oakland Black Elders Pioneers are using it to promote “NO NEGATIVE SPEAK’’ (NNS) with each other in Oakland and the world. The Black handshake played a huge role in the positive feeling we had for each other back in our day. We not only created the Black handshake but we also gave it a positive meaning. “UNITY, SELF HELP, EDUCATION AND DIGNITY”.
Oakland Black Elders Pioneers say now is the time for “NO NEGATIVE SPEAK” (NNS) with each other to bring meaning and purpose into life and boost our willpower to be more positive with each other. Sometimes the simplest things make the difference. (Black Elders wisdom speaking).

The black and white picture below was taken in my apartment in the early 1960s. These are some of the first pioneer men in the Afro American Association (AAA) to work the streets of West Oakland and more, spreading the word of CHANGE from “NEGRO” to “BLACK”. (R.I.P to each of them).

OAKLAND BLACK ELDER PIONEERS USING THEIR WISDOM, EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND HINDSIGHT: to bring together our younger generations in a positive way using “NO NEGATIVE SPEAK” (NNS) with each other.
We have to seriously talk to ourselves and start practicing what you tell yourself. When you do this you will feel the positive feelings and the new confidence and strength that are already in you. Keep making positive statements on this post about your efforts with (NNS).
Remember if it does not flow when you start that’s Ok you just keep doing your practice over and over and you will get better and better. You see there is no magic way for us to come up out of over 400 years under the Slave System but to work at being positive with each other.
NEGATIVE SPEAK” BREAKS THE HABIT OF NEGATIVE TALKING TO EACH OTHER
post is dedicated for everyone to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE. No time to sit back and
wait on someone other than yourself to make something happen positive for Black
people. Sharing the West Oakland Stories Positive Feeling Movement (WOSPFM)
post is a commitment you should make every time you read its post.
FEW NOTES TO KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON “NO NEGATIVE SPEAK” (NNS) with each other:
not be able to get ourselves together until we first raise positive feelings
toward each other. The WOSPFM is pointing you in the right direction. You must
practice and not just talk about it.
We have been bombarded with negativity about ourselves by the
Slave System forever. We must cleanse ourselves. This takes practice to be
positive with each other. We are so use to negative talk that we think it is
If you cut off negative talk when it starts this will leave room
for POSITIVE talk and POSITIVE THOUGHTS.
We are Showcasing the Black elders below that are in the same positive flow as West Oakland Stories Positive Feeling Movement (WOSPFM) is. They are stating “We wanted to have some cohesiveness as a group. See what things we could do together to help the community and each other,” Lee added. The men realized together they can make a difference.
