WE will continue our push to finish ALL 50 States. With only Alaska and Hawaii remaining, WE owe this to our donors as well as ourselves. WE shall get it done! #loveamericatour #wethajacksons #thebridgeswecross #keeploveabovehate #america #adventure
"New ways of thinking is what's up. Continuing to follow a course which is self-destructive and feeds the idea of "freedom rationed or begged for" leads to feelings of inadequacy, anger and inferiority!" #ThisLandIsMyLand #WeThaJacksons #loveamericatour #blackconsciousness #blackhistorymonth #blackempowerment #blackmedia #blackfamily #blackart #unapologeticallyblack #love #truth #blackownedbusiness #fortheculture #hiphop #staywoke #blackgirl #blackentrepreneurs #blacknews #blm #repost #blackman #blackwealth #blackgirls #woke #bhfyp #hbcu #knowthyself #blackexellence

Legendary musician Shiela E. allowed some of her exhuberance and magic to rub off and inspire WE THA JACKSONS on our LOVE AMERICA TOUR last year. WE promise to bring you more excitement, more wonderful people, more amazing places and more classic WE THA JACKSONS unpredictability in the upcoming months. Stay Tuned!

WE didn't LOVE AMERICA TOUR because WE are some "All American" super gung-ho' flag waving family. Nope! WE have adventured because WE could and nobody else had done it. After jumping off the train in Klamath Falls, Oregon WE paused to discuss adopting the mannerisms / slogans that were going to be necessary to take on such an adventure especially being "darker complexioned' Americans ie. Black. Afterall, WE had already been informed by law enforcement officials, and I quote; "black people don't camp!," Whattt? So already this challenge had been handicapped. "Um...clearly WE do," I responded as WE stood armored in camping gear. Anyway, this would be just a fraction of the challenges of assessment WE were about to face traveling by planes, trains, buses and automobile through the lower 48 States. Thus, the wisdom of "LOVE AMERICA TOUR was born. #thebridgeswecross #steadfast #usa #america #American #travelmore #love #adventure #familytravel #family #america #documentary #networktv #loveamericatour #wethajacksons #goal #televisionshow #hulu @hulu #netflixoriginal #wearefamily @lessened.co
WE have walked, hiked and tarried upon many lone roads throughout this nation. No buses, cars or even people for hours at a time on many occasions. How did WE get here was often our inquiry followed closely by how are WE going to get out? Long were many of our days, surviving only on certainty, water and light snacks while accepting rides from strangers on backwood roads. Strangers who more often than not also offered us a place to lay our heads. WE broke bread with oh' so many in the strangest and most unexpected places and literally lived "LOVE AMERICA TOUR!". Unafraid, unrelenting and bent on living the greatest adventure, the road less traveled proved to be the road less scary and far more embracing than some of the tough inner city streets. Families were on these back roads, people of great faith lived along these pathways. The homes which graced these plains were dwelling places of hope. The flags which flew in the yards and upon farm houses represented pride and patriotism beyond race and political affiliation. Bottles of water were handed to us by strangers. Money was handed out of car windows and well wishes for a safe journey were echoed at truck stops and general stores throughout our quest. Small town newspapers celebrated WE THA JACKSONS for merely considering their town upon such a historical journey. Bus drivers, train conducters, restaurant owners, mayors and common folk, all making their presence, prayers and love felt. This is a great nation with far greater people who wear many labels and posture in many systems of thought. Never the matter, at the end of the day, WE were all Americans, bound by a code of goodness and driven by any opportunity to demonstrate better.

Attempting to avoid the large crowd, NBA Legend Kevin Garnett was hurried into his car. "Wait he said while letting down his window. "You don't even know who I am, he says to our 8 year old son R'san who had just knocked on the window to ask him for a photo. "Yes I do, you're Kevin Garnett," R'san answers seemingly insulted. "Oh' I got to get out and give y'all a picture he responds!" So he jumps out, picks R'san up and says "get this photo Fam'!" He talked with the kids about LOVE AMERICA TOUR and in less than 5 minutes there were at least a hundred people slowly converging on our area. "I've gotta run but don't stop, keep going, he shouted! Then he climbed back into the car and off they went. Thank you Kevin Garnett!

WE are Americans! Not African-Americans, Black Americans or otherwise. No one brought us here and WE were never freed because WE were never slaves. A system of government and violent rule invaded these North American shores thus changing the landscape. A great tale of conquer, pillage, murder and oppression began the new rewrite of history here in the Western Hemisphere. A fable that many repeat today as if the story is fact. "This land is my land!" Historically WE have always been here, even before the so-called arrival of slave ships from Africa, Mexico and the shores of Central and South America. to be continued...

LOVE AMERICA TOUR with WE THA JACKSONS is a remarkable tale of courage, possibility, adventure and hope. Upon planes, trains, buses and automobiles have WE THA JACKSONS ventured for over 39 months through a nation divided. With racial inequality, national protest, police brutality, patriotic mayhem and countless other challenges driving the hate narrative, WE THA JACKSONS embarked upon a journey of discovery. Without media attention, security detail, itinerary or agenda, this American family set out to challenge the very creed of this nation that "All Men are Created Equal!" Avoiding national parks and monuments as much as possible, their journey has taken them through small town America and upon back wood roads never before "traveled" by people of color yet alone "walked." Thus their story reigns as one of true amazement. Working on their first collective literary piece, "The Bridges We Cross," WE THA JACKSONS are only two states shy of becoming the first family to visit ALL 50 States via planes, trains, buses and automobiles while carrying a LOVE AMERICA TOUR banner. #BeThaWorld SPREADIN' THA' LOVE! #spreadinthalove #wethajacksons #loveamericatour #thebridgeswecross #familyovereverything #hiphop #television #adventure #familytravel #family #documentary #networktv @netflix #netflixoriginal #wearefamily #netflixoriginalseries #huludocumentary #netflixdocumentary #familyquotes #familytravel
I remember America 23 years ago, Oct. 16, 1995. I remember kissing my family and heading out the door on my way to The Million Man March in Washington, D.C. A group of brothers from Muhammad's Mosque in Orlando came by my home to insist that I, of all people, should go to this historical event. Active in the community I was. In fact, I was briefly touring the college lecture circuit. More than Orlando; I was present in many communities throughout The United States. Never the matter, I caved in and jumped in a 18 passenger van and headed to Washington, D.C. Upon the dark roads of America did millions of black men brave the threats, taunts and violent speech which was bellowing from countless media outlets concerning this gathering. Fear was heavy throughout the nation. Both sides; black's and whites were afraid of what the other might do. Never the matter, through Georgia, the Carolinas, and parts of Virginia did our caravan travel. Security was tight, scowls and a national stand-off was the spirit on those backwoods roads. A flat tire on one of the vans made for a very uncomfortable stop on the side of a Georgia road shortly after midnight. Why did we feel like this in America in 1995? Why do so many still feel like this today? to be continued #loveamericatour #wethajacksons #nodoubts #hawaii #travel #usa #america #Americans #travelmore #diversity #television #love #adventure #familytravel #family #america #alaska #hiphop #positivity #motivation @jayphillipslive #encouragement #progress @willsmith #millionmanmarch #orlandomosque #nationofislam @fezzyfel @ramonski_luv #ministerfarrakhan @64jones @blair.bie
WE THA JACKSONS have journeyed via planes, trains, buses and automobiles over many miles of this nation. Likened to a political campaign, WE have shared our story with thousands of Americans from all walks of life. Shaking hands, breaking bread, meeting families, catching tears, sharing smiles, falling in love and receiving prayers, LOVE AMERICA TOUR with WE THA JACKSONS has been an insightful look into our countries true calling. Beyond race, political affiliation or religious beliefs, Americans forefront human possibility completely unaware of the beckoning. A nation divided yet so unioned she is. Still she sits stalled by an inability to properly comprehend the Freedom gifted to her. A young nation she is, a mere child amongst other great empires thus America struggles with the pains of growth. Adolescently whining about her upbringing, she is a nation seeking identity while believing she knows it all. Blinded by the voices of discourse, many Americans are disgruntled and seek someone to blame. Afterall, isn't blame and finger pointing the way of a child? Even in this, our baby nation has within her those who mature faster than others and these seek to advance the aims of the calling. America, the new kid on the block gifted with so much talent and potential yet stalled by the fears of adulthood. to be continued... #wethajacksons #loveamericatour #thebridgeswecross #challengethenorm #familyovereverything #hiphop #thanksgiving #television #adventure #familytravel #family #documentary #networktv @netflix #netflixoriginal #wearefamily #netflixoriginalseries #huludocumentary #netflixdocumentary

Attaining inner peace is a personal growth endeavor. Keeping love above hate is a step by step process which begins with us. Many people have become reactionary creatures. Thus trigger words easily thrust such individuals into countless wasted moments of argument. "You do not have to attend every argument you are invited to..." An ability to quickly assess the difference between intellectual exchange vs. "baited" discourse is not only healthy but allows one to communicate at a zero level of tolerance for stupidity. 😀 LOVE AMERICA TOUR with WE THA JACKSONS!

After a brief stay and breeze further south, WE return to the City of Angels. There is truly no place quite like Los Angeles. With homelessness, plight, superficiality and rudeness as its present day backdrop, LA still retains a recognizable spirit of achieve! Many people fail here, while so many others have what it takes to touch impossible dreams. The energy which emanates from those living out their dreams is enough to smother any and all anguish. Making possible the seemingly impossible is what drives this town. Unlike New York which boast of being a great place to visit but not live, Los Angeles is the land of vision. Creativity and imaginative awe is the call which holds. I love LA but wouldn't recommend it to any who has a track record of quit or give up! It's truly magical for those who believe in magic yet a haven of washed up hopes for those who can't cutt it! This is LA boi and there are two kinds of angels who dwell here, the good and the horrible. Thus it has honestly earned it's description, The City of Angels! #bethaworld #losangeles #la #WeThaJacksons #BeThaWorld #SpreadinThaLove #loveamericatour #journey #love #freedom #peace #travel #familytime #usa #familyovereverything #familytravel
A young Revolutionary said to me, "Bruh? You serious? LOVE AMERICA? Don't you know the history of this country as it relates to our people? Aren't you aware of all the injustice, inequality, racism and oppression? How can you promote LOVE AMERICA?" ME: "I know the duty and accept the challenge! I know the enemy and have donned' the armor! I know the battlefield and have taken up my position. Keep Love Above Hate is carved upon my weapon and my TOUR of duty is underway! I hope this answers your question!"
