Within the last 18 months there have been dozens of stories in the news detailing sexual assaults on Black youths, both male and female. Most of the accused perpetrators have been trusted and influential members of the community - people no one would suspect of being a pedophile. Statistics on the sexual assaults of children under the age of 18 are shocking and deeply disturbing.

Trafficking, molestation, rape, and prostitution have become commonplace. The majority of these crimes by Black men against Black children being tolerated and seemingly accepted in our communities. Why? What 's going on with Black men? Why are these beasts not being arrested and prosecuted en masse? Why the silence by women and lack of action by allegedly "good black men?"

Guest experts include Dr. Joyce Morley-Ball of doctorjoyce.com, and Sylvia Coleman of blacksurvivors.org. Sylvia stated: "What concerns me most are the adult sexual abuse survivors who fail to recognize the connection between the current problems in their life (i.e. relationship, job failure, parenting, etc) and the sexual abuse they experienced in their childhood."

Our well-informed panel will provide you with answers to these questions and many more during this explosive broadcast.  Take the Survey on Child Abuse in the Black Community by clicking here. To participate in the live on-air discussion, call 347-327-9215.
