The recent quasi-blockbuster film 12 Years A Slave has roused all types of emotion both in and our of the 'black' community since it's recent release.  Tonight we are going to discuss and analyze how the first hand account of an actual slave in the 1840's, reflected how the institution of slavery transformed our identity as people, and we are going to extrapolate the economic ramifications of what we are seeing in this depiction.  We will also take a revealing look into the character Petey Green the radio jock played by Don Cheadle in 'Talk to Me', the biopic of his transformative time on the airwaves after MLK's death in the 1960's.

We want to draw out, identify and bring to light the various maladies that we developed through the process, and how we as a people have 'surfed' into modern day America on that underlying experience, and the ramifications of the entire social drama in todays world, as reflected so fully by the Petey Green story.

Being Black Wall Street, it is PARAMOUNT that we begin to embrace and connect to a deeper overstanding of ourselves as a social group, how we have been socialized, and the mental illness piece that runs through our community, and psycho-analyze how we must relate to one another in this 21st century, to reach the cooperative socio-economic heights we are aiming to reach with our efforts, and what our roadmap must look like to get there.

Join us for one of the most STIMULATING DISCUSSIONS TODAY on Path to Freedom, and chime in with your thoughts on our condition as a people, & overcoming our economic injustice in America
