Just this past week, I saw a news segment on black men incarcerated who on Father's Day, were allowed to have their daughters come for a visit and dance.  As I watched, I saw these young children running into their father's arms when they got a glimpse them.  I then saw these fathers hold them tight.   When it was over, I saw the shedding of tears...the not wanting to let go. 

As I listened to some of the reasoning why they were incarcerated, I thought to myself, "are you kidding me?"  Don't get me wrong, there were some who should have been incarcerated but has it become a system of numbers that instead of lowering the dollar amount to attend college, it serve the powers that be better that our men are  incarcerated?   Enslaved...AGAIN!

What do we now do to stop the conspiracy?  Can we stop it?  If so, how do we stop it?

Is education key to our survival?  But if educated, how do we use that education in whatever field to further us?

Would you date or ever trust a person who has been incarcerated?  Real Talk!

We'll be speaking with some of those who have been incarcerated who were educated before going in, educated themselves while in and even sought higher levels of education once out.  This is our Real Talk the Movement.
