THE GRIND CONVENTION IS DEDICATED TO THE SPIRIT OF THE BUFFALO SOLDIERS AND THOSE WOMEN WHO STOOD BESIDE THEM WITHOUT ANY RECOGNITION OR REWARD, BUT DID IT ANYWAY. THE GRIND CONVENTION EMBODIES CAMPFIRE STORIES, WORKSHOPS, AND A LABORATORY TO DISTILL SOME OF THE GRIT AND GRIND OF PEOPLE WHO MADE A WAY OUT OF NOW WAY.
ALTHOUGH THE BUFFALO SOLDIERS MAY HAVE HELPED COLONIZE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE, I BELIEVE THEY LATER BECAME MEN OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND LATER WROTE ABOUT THEIR CONTROVERSIAL ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAY THINK ABOUT THEIR OUTCOMES, TRY AND UNDERSTAND THE SPIRIT OF THEIR WAY, AND DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS FOR STAYING ON YOUR OWN GRIND.
GRIND CONVENTION WILL PROVIDE AN EXCHANGE OF THE HISTORICAL WITH THE PRESENT, AND ATTEMPT TO PROVIDE AND CURATE INSPIRATION FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO ADD TO THIS CULTURE OF GRINDING FOR GOOD.
THE USE OF XR AND OTHER DIGITAL MEDIA TOOLS WILL BRING SOME OF THESE STORIES AND CIRCUMSTANCES BACK TO LIFE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO RESEARCH AND DEBATE. THESE STORIES PAST & PRESENT ARE TO BE SHARED AND ANALYZED ABOUT HOW FAR WE’VE COME TO AND HOW MUCH BETTER WE CAN BECOME IN OUR HUMANITY.
WE KNOW GRINDING IS SOMETHING WE DON’T WISH FOR OUR CHILDREN, AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF EXAMPLES OF HOW GRINDING ENDED THE LIFE OF MANY WHO KNEW THERE WERE LEVELS AS WELL AS DANGER. SO ONE OF OUR OUTCOMES FOR GRIND CONVENTION IS TO EXPLORE HOW TO KEEP A BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE ON YOUR WAY TO GRINDING FOR GOOD.
WE BELIEVE CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS SELF DETERMINATION, SELFLESSNESS AND SERVICE SHOULD BE EXAMINED FROM A YOUNG DIGITAL LEARNERS PERSPECTIVE. STAY TUNED FOR MORE CONTENT LEADING UP TO THE GRINDCON, BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2020.

People will only hate on you when you have something that they don’t have. Look at the positives and attract more haters. When people dislike you, you must be doing something right, keep grinding, never result to their negativity.. #Motivation #Life #Goals #Dreams #Gym #Success pic.twitter.com/3Q8WdqpsZz
