Tonight we will be have a Interview with Mr.Sam Simmons, LADC

Mr. Simmons has over 24 years of experience as an behavioral consultant specializing in working with African American males. Sam is highly respected for his work around African American historical trauma and the successful Community Empower Through Black Men Healing Conference around the country.  He is also co-host of "Voices” on 89.9 KMOJ FM.

Our Historical Trauma Work

When discussing the ills and disparities within the African American community, such issues as violence, drugs, poverty, and emotional, physical, and spiritual health are often discussed. When systematic oppression isn’t being questioned as a barrier, community accountability and African-American men’s lack of accountability often comes to the forefront.  African American’s traumatic history andAfrican American men’s trauma is overlooked and/or called an excuse.When African American trauma is not addressed the cycle of pain can continue and the community suffers tenfold.
