Our Introduction

Electronic Village

Welcome to the Electronic Village!  The Electronic Village serves multiple purposes.  First, it is the cyberspace home of Hicks Enterprises.  Also, this is a 'virtual village' created in the African tradition with an eclectic collection of web pages that are updated on a regular basis.  For example, a number of our web pages are devoted to the history of African American people...affectionately known here as OURstory. You can find all of our website updates listed on the Village News page.  

The Electronic Village carries a wide variety of products, services and other features that you will find useful in the real world.  We invite you to take part in the journey that takes place on web pages devoted to economic empowerment, information technology, the Black experience and so much more!  Also, we invite you to join our online community!  

      Our Mission

The Electronic Village will become a destination for people interested in obtaining economic freedom & empowerment.  We will raise the consciousness of our Villagers and redirect more of our consumption spending to businesses in our communities.  Villagers have an opportunity to share in a spiritual, social and financial awakening here in the Electronic Village.  We no longer have to complain about discrimination and disrespect from others...we can now practice self-respect, self-love, and self-determination here in our own Electronic Village.  Part of developing a larger sense of our self comes from reading uplifting literature.  Check out the Electronic Village Bookstore for some great reading ideas!
