When you think of activism in a tough city like Chicago, one of the first people you have to consider is Minister Bamani Obadele. For decades he's been fighting against unfairness and injustice. He's been a champion of the poor.
✊🏿Obadele was the first to come out against singing sensation R. Kelly more than 17 years ago regarding sexual misconduct of minors when many, including Chicago pastors' were supporting R. Kelly. Click below link.
Minister Obadele has worked for countless community grassroots organizations, as well as established political campaigns including a former Illinois governor, and current Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul.
The truth of the matter is Obadele has delivered on all fronts whether: petitions, votes, political victories, or 100's of thousands of dollars in contracts for at-risk youth and unemployed black wo/men.
