Forms and Methods of Documentation:
The simplest and most popular way to gather "What our people are doing?", is to get a business card or flyer
from any and all African (Black) Individuals, businesses, and organizations locally, nationally, and
internationally. On the back of this African (Black) business card or flyer record the date, event, and place
where you met the contact.
If the contact does not have a business card or flyer just record their information on the attached form titled
"Sign in List - What our people are doing?" (#2 below). Attached you will find the forms used by the CBPM to
gather “What our people are doing”. All computerized forms use Microsoft Excel software.
Included forms include:
1. "What our people are doing?" - shell: Use this form as a Master spreadsheet to input all the brothers
and sisters information (business cards, flyers, sign in information) you gathered. This form should only be
used with a computer and not as a printed document. Currently the CBPM, "What our people are doing",
Master Database has 2,950 Individuals, organizations, and businesses entered. Online at the CBPM website
you will find 1,141 businesses and organizations listed in the “What our people are Doing” (WOPAD) database
which was released in November 2007, for all our people to know about. The new release, 2010 WOPAD
database will include all entries up to this date. We do not list individual information online because it’s

4. “Jobs for our people, Shell”: List people who have jobs for our people.

CBPM website at: www.cbpm.org/files/JobsforourPeople

6. “Brothers and Sisters killed by each other”: List Brothers and Sisters killed by each other. This

7. “CBPM Members Application”: Use the online application at the CBPM website to have someone sign
up for membership with the CBPM (www.cbpm.org/files/OnlineMembershipForm). Attached is a hard copy of
the CBPM membership application. The Skills, Talents, and Intelligence (Education) database is produced
from the information gathered on the CBPM membership application.
8. “Radio Guest Form”: Use this form to document radio interviews, tv interviews, and/or other forms of
interviews (or speeches) done by our people as guest with vital information for our people. Currently there is
175 Radio Guest interviews documented by the CBPM.
9. “Radio Listener Form”: Use this form to document what listeners to radio programs are saying. Are they
in favor of Black issues or are they against. This information compiled will serve for the purpose of building a
African Intelligence System for our people.
10. “Discrimination Report Form”: Use this form to Document Discrimination and Racism against our
people. This form is also available at the CBPM website at: www.cbpm.org/files/DiscriminationReportForm
11. “CBPM Headquarters Sign in Sheet”: This form is to be used at the CBPM office location(s). CBPM is a
nation building entity, therefore it is mandatory for everyone who comes to the CBPM office to sign in to
maintain proper documentation at the CBPM Headquarters.
Particularly it is important to gather "What our people are doing" in your particular circles (friends, family, state,
& home country) therefore you can promote and support those businesses and organizations you feel is
important for our people to know about. You don't have to change your daily routine to gather "What our
people are doing". You can gather it during your normal daily movements.
African people have to recruit our people (clients) in advance for any and all businesses we are in. Eventually
we want to have everyone who works for the collective to get compensated, but we are not close to that bridge
yet. But we know that we can produce dollars from doing works. This is why we continue the works.
A good place to start to gather, document, and organize brothers and sisters is with those who are concerned
with making things better for African People. The people you gather do not have to be members of the CBPM.
What we do at the CBPM is to promote our people in what they are doing first and move them to be a members
of the Collective Black People Movement as time goes on.
At the end of each month, email this information to email@example.com to be entered into the CBPM Master
Database. There is work for us in organizing our people today which can turn into income for us tomorrow.
