Greetings Family! As some of you may be aware, we've been around creating, collaborating, and marketing black consciousness videos to the community over the last 20 years. From VHS tapes, to DVDs, to streaming files, we've had to adapt and change with the times. For the last couple of years we've been uploading and sharing our videos, and they have been well received by the many subscribers to our four YouTube channels. Without question, the biggest draw on our channels has been the noted eschatologist and lecturer, Bobby Hemmitt.

Bobby was prolific, and presented literally hundreds of lectures from 1996 through 2011, when he basically retired from the lecture circuit. We began our collaboration with Bobby in 1998 when we began to produce lectures (in Atlanta) with Bobby and coordinating the marketing of his videos (and many others). Then in 2000, after we co-produced the Gathering of the Masters Conference in Atlanta in collaboration with Cultural Communications, we began our web site SiriusTimes.com and publishing the Sirius Times Journal for Evolving Consciousness newsletter and catalog. 

In 2013, Bobby suffered a stroke. Although he has recovered much of his ability to speak, he still has mobility issues and other issues that have so far prevented him from resuming his public speaking. When we started our YouTube channels we made sure that Bobby was taken care of from the ad revenue we received monthly. Recent changes at YouTube, however, have caused our ad revenue to dip sharply, affecting our ability to help Bobby. So we created this patron-only page on Patreon to give our many subscribers, and Bobby Hemmitt supporters and fans, a way to help us and Bobby directly.

While we will continue to upload videos to YouTube, our patrons will get early access to the videos by as much as a week. These videos will include all of the various scholars and lecturers you can find now on our YouTube channels and even more.

However, the remainder of the dozens of Bobby Hemmitt videos we have yet to share will only be available in their entirety to patrons who contribute at the Gold level or higher. We will still publish the first hour or so of the lectures to YouTube, to promote The Sirius Times Archive on Patreon and hopefully to turn more of our subscribers into patrons. We appreciate all of you who support our work to make this information available. But only the Gold level patrons will have access to the full version of the Bobby Hemmitt lecture videos we upload.

Our goal is to ultimately share as many of the videos in our catalog as we can and make them available to all of our supporters and patrons who appreciate the value of information and connection to our history and culture. And, as of April 2018, all new uploads shared on our page will be AD FREE! So, your support is vital to our ability to continue to provide this service. We urge you to become a monthly patron of the Sirius Times Video Archive so that we can continue to share our catalog of videos with the community and continue to support Bobby Hemmitt.

We invite you to still take advantage of the hundreds of hours of free video content we have already uploaded on our four You Tube channels here:

You can browse our complete current catalog of videos on our web site at SiriusTimes.com. Or, you can download a copy of our catalog included in the SiriusTimes 2006 Digest in PDF format.

Goals

When we get to 1,000 patrons we will begin to direct a percentage of our donations to other creators producing videos and programs of interest to the black community, by becoming patrons of their work. We believe in "paying it forward" and spreading the blessings and there are some really good and insightful young folk out there really speaking to issues we should all care about.
