Connie Johnson takes us effortlessly from a time when our communities were once a safe haven entrenched with love, to modern day world of politics, redlining, corruption, gentrification and the dismantling of communities of color all throughout the U.S.A. Ms. Johnson's story begins in Bridgeport, CT, the home of the Paugussette Native American Tribe and home of The Barnum & Bailey Circus, Ms. Johnson, a community organizer, civil and spiritual rights activist and advocate with strong beliefs in Christ, has successfully accomplished what city officials failed to do which was to create an environment geared for our youths' elevation and success. Even with struggles in her own home, she involved her children by organizing many community events tailored to bringing our youth together and communities at large, creating unity and lasting memories of Christian values and team concept. It came with a price. Ms. Johnson and her entire family became a target. Loosing her home, jobs and positions being snatched, Ms. Johnson continued to build despite her circumstances overcoming every obstacle propelled her way.
Walk with her as she exposes the master plan to weaken our communities through the education, judicial and police system and the plot to destroy our youth by shutting down after school activities much like Fisk University in the early 1920's; placing rival teen gangs in the same school through rezoning process; trying to remove the music department; trying to changed the names of the two heavily black schools; tried disqualifying athletes by raising the state standard of grades in order for them to be qualified only in Bridgeport, CT and placing two out of the Three HS athletic department in a lower league. The two HS demographics were made up of so-called African American and Hispanic Descendant. ​It takes a hammer to build back what has been destroyed. Ms. Johnson wielded the hammer well for us all.​"Regardless of the natural circumstances in life, in the end, we win in the spiritual realm." Author Unknown"
