African American Economic Recovery Think Tank, LLC

A Stand for Resolve

"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein

Guiding Principles of the AAERTT

"History shows that it does not matter who is in power... those who have not learned to do for themselves and had to depend solely on others never obtain any more rights or privileges in the end than they did in the beginning." -- Dr. Carter G. Woodson

The AAERTT founding members Stanley L. Scott and Edward Exson Sr. commissioned this 2017 Economic Roadmap to present  "40 Acres and A Mule", an African American Urban Core Economic Development Roadmap.

The AAERTT is a knowledgeable goal-driven team with 40-plus years of combined Civil Rights, Business, and Community Engagement experience. 

The AAERTT Core Mission facilitates and nurtures progressive critical thinking leadership in the African American community, develops enterprise corridors, and teaches, develops, promotes, and encourages business ownership, community investment, and stabilization in urban core communities.

Four Community Building Pillars -

3. Preventative Health (Balanced Diet, Physical Activities, and Self-Affirmation)

4. Cooperative Economics (Business Development Ownership)

Leadership Methodology

"There is only one way to achieve economic zeal for the African American community's empowerment. First, trust in real people with a common Value Proposition agenda. Second, seeking, developing, and believing in innovative community resolutions. Afrocentric Education based on the Arts, History, and STEM technology. Embraces collaborative learning and keeps your plans close to your heart. Lastly, surround and engage people more intelligent than yourself, and remember if it does not make sense, it does not matter. - Stanley Scott

Strategic Management

Strategic management involves formulating and implementing the primary goal of an Organization or Business's top management on behalf of the community or owners based on resources and assessing the internal and external environments in which the organization or business competes.

Team Oriented Methodology 

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” ― Harry Truman

One way to improve our condition and change the paradigm is to develop new open-minded cohesive leadership.  We must become involved in civic and social engagement,  embrace capitalism, and decrease consumerism.  Save, invest, develop, create, build, and own is the surest way for advancement, respect, and a death blow to racism!”
