It's about all black people from all over the world and USA (male and female) living in California meeting to make friends, talking about our indentity, rediscovering our God given power as first human beings on the planet and exchanging on how to regain our leadership globally. We always need to remind ourselves that we are the first human beings on planet earth...that in itself should be empowering. We have faced hatred and racism throughout history and even now, by people who are jealous (afraid) of our potential and what we can achieve when we regain our leadership. That's a mission we need to embrace globally for ourselves and our future children. We have a natural identity, an inner power: let's meet, socialize, talk about how to rediscover it, use it and live by it without shame or apology! We all come from one place of origin and we never knew "borders"...let's be ONE again and put our strenght (mental, spititual, intellectual, emotional, creative, etc.) together and be everything we have always been.
Hike to Mission Peak summit on the Peak Trail.
One a scale 1-10 this would rate a 5 but we all have different hiking abilities. I see kids do this trail all the time but that's means nothing if your new to hiking and don't know your abilities.
We will stop on a regular basis to make sure no one is exhausted. I'm guessing hike will take 3- 4 hours to complete. But we will do it at a comfortable pace
Estimated Distance of Hike: 6-7 miles
Gross Elevation Gain: 2100 ft.
