What is the
Memphis Model Plan?


The Model Memphis Plan is the signature product of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., American Dream Team Initiative. It originates out of more than 40 years of basic research, which has been scientifically architected to guide construction of a “Corporate Neighborhood Model.” It is a holistic approach, which is designed for everyone to participate and take personal responsibility and accountability for their communities and their own destinies.

Proper implementation of the Model Memphis Plan will yield self governance, cultural and economic prosperity. It is ultimately designed to end the long history of invisibility, powerlessness, poverty, ignorance and ethnic hatred in the country

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. American Dream Team Initiative/Model Memphis Plan is an African American conceived and led Initiative designed to provide the expertise and context in which all Americans can learn how to take advantage of their uniqueness and live out the American dream, vision and prophecy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech.

The key Focus of the organization is to showcase basic research science that undergirds the implementation of the Model Memphis Plan across the country and establish America as the model nation by honoring Dr. King as the newest founding father; and to develop effective cultural, business, political, and community relationships based on the essential principles of the American Dream and the 1776 Declaration of Independence.


The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. American Dream Team Initiative/Model Memphis Plan’s initial purpose is to build a national and international framework and infrastructure, for living out the essential principles of freedom, equality, impartiality, neutrality, unity, and the pursuit of happiness. Another key purpose of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. American Dream Team Initiative/Model Memphis Plan is to educate people on how to initiate, develop, administrate and maintain institutions that foster individual and group growth in areas of economic development.


The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. American Dream Team Initiative started in 2007 when former Memphis City Councilman, Attorney Dedrick Brittenum, presented the new psychosocial science of Humaculture. This Bio/Philo/Psychosocial Science of Humaculture came out of 40 years of dedicated basic research by Dr. Nkosi K.M Ajanaku Esquire, research lawyer and graduate of the University of Memphis School of Law. When this science is properly used, it gives answers and solutions to our problems of crime, education, poverty, ethnic hatred and stifling divisiveness, not only in Memphis and Shelby County, but in the nation as a whole.

The early stages of this Initiative actually got underway in the 80's, with the Economic Development Committee of the Benjamin F. Jones Memphis Chapter of the National Bar Association. Additionally, one of Memphis’ prominent leaders, Reverend Dr. Fred (Mwaidele) Lofton, former Pastor of the historic Metropolitan Baptist Church in Memphis; chairman of the Economic Development Committee of the Memphis Theological Association; and National Co-Chairman of the Newest Greater Works Testament Initiative, took a leadership position. Dr. Lofton raised the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. American Dream Initiative’s answers and solutions to the level of our consciousness.

On account of the novel, “Bottom-Up/Top-Down Approach," we will be able to create a new relevant Orientation-Education, Macroeconomic and Mega business paradigm for the first time in our history. Now is the time for the people of Memphis and Shelby County to come together. We can finally put life into the 2007 Resolutions and Proclamations signed by the Memphis City Council and Shelby County Commissioners. Most importantly, Memphis and Shelby County will become the Model City and County in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his 1963 Vision of the American Dream Philosophy. This great American Dream is rooted in the second paragraph of the 1776 Declaration of Independence, which sprang from the mind of President Thomas Jefferson and was signed by that illustrious group of 56 Delegates of the 1775 Second Continental Congress!


Greater Memphis Chamber

The Corporate and Business objective of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. American Dream Team Initiative/Model Memphis Plan is to complete the “Poor People’s Campaign” started by Dr. King and to establish collaborative corporate partnerships with the Memphis Chamber of Commerce to:

  • Put life into 2007 Proclamations and Resolutions already signed by the Memphis City Council, Shelby County Commissioners, State of Tennessee Senate and House of Representatives, and Ninth Congressional District Office of Congressman Steve Cohen
  • Provide the support and influence needed to get national visibility for the Dr. King Initiative and Model Memphis Plan by way of a national press conference
  • Use the 1981 Memphis Jobs Conference as the organizing model to bring people together, reflect, evaluate and complete the past
  • Help plan “Pioneering Leadership” event to honor the efforts of those who have contributed to the overall cultural, business and economic develop of Memphis
  • Cosponsor a “Memphis Homecoming” event so everyone from elementary, junior high, high school and college can get involved
  • Facilitate the conduct of New Knowledge Forums on how to live out the principles, vision and philosophy of Dr. King and participate in Future America Great Conversations to build consistency and continuity
The research science now exist where all persons in the community can come, get involved and learn how to live out the American Dream and shape a sustainable growth and economic development agenda. We plan to build our economic foundation on the contributions of these great men:
  • Businessman Jesse H. Turner Sr., Tri-State Bank
  • Prominent Businessman A. Maceo Walker
  • Dr. Vasco Smith, Dentist and former Shelby County Commissioner
  • Former Presiding Bishop G. E. Patterson
  • Judge Odell Horton
  • Dr. Blair T. Hunt, longtime Educator
  • Dr. Benjamin Hooks, Civil Rights Leader & Baptist Minister

To ensure the voices and views of African-Americans are joined with other
stakeholders where everyone shares the benefits and opportunities of economic investments and community development prosperity.
