Fresh from his Atlanta experience former National Board Chair Bill Wells, Jr. walks us through the highlights and key issues discussed at last week’s National Black MBA Association Annual Conference. Thousands attended where corporate decision makers networked and sized up credentialed job seekers during the Career Fair Expo, workshop sessions and general assemblies. It was four plus days of non stop networking for those who attended. And highly anticipated visits from Magic Johnson and Robin Roberts capped off a high stakes, well choreographed opportunity for black business professionals to come together for the good of all.

The Legendary Tony Salinas changed the way people bet on games. In Major League Baseball, for instance, Tony was the first to chart umpire tendencies, as he knew the strike-zone size used by each in the American and National leagues. Salinas also knew who would likely be the first to eject a player, and who would walk away from a conflict.
In the National Basketball League, Salinas developed the Zig-Zag Theory for betting playoff games, with bettors betting for teams coming off a playoff loss. And in the National Football League, it has been said that Salinas knows more about offensive strategy than most NFL offensive coordinators.

The National African American Forum was formed to address the concerns of the New Jim Crow ” Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness
According to Michelle Alexander, New York Times Best Seller, and winner of the NAACP image award, states that the war on drugs during the Reagan Administration set into motion blatant discrimination within the caste system in the criminal justice system, education, economic development, housing, health, and the political process. According to Alexander individuals that was classified as a convicted felon after release could not receive public assistance in health, housing, and education, furthermore those individuals could not apply for loans to start a business, and did not have the right to vote.
A vast majority of those individuals were African Americans. Through new Jim Crow African Americans have been left behind in all institutions of life.
The National African American Forum is setting out to undo the wrongs of the New Jim Crow.

About the Tour.
SISFI is hosting our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.
The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves.
We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.
