    A Conversation/ Interview with Yorli Huff, the Creator of Engendered Strentghs SuperHero Huff.... One of the few African-American undercover agents in the task force, Huff excelled at her work, but her rise to the top brought with it racism and discrimination. In 1997, after trying unsuccessfully to deal with that discrimination on her own, Huff made history when she filed a lawsuit against the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department, a battle which took her eleven years to win. A powerful international motivational speaker that is an entrepreneur at heart, Huff is the owner of Just For You Balloons, a balloon decorating company which she established in 1992, which she established in 2008. Also in 2008, Yorli Huff became the Founder, President, and CEO of Engendering Strength, Inc., a company devoted to inspiring and empowering women.  Yorli Huff’s first book, The Veil of Victory, an account of her life from childhood to her victory over the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department, was published in October 2010. She is currently at work on her second book, Testimony Time; a Superhero Huff comic book; a feature film based on The Veil of Victory; t-shirt lines; and a National motivational speaker.  Yorli Huff has been featured on Allison Payne’s People to People segment, Monique Caradine show, Perspectives, the Cliff Kelly talk radio show on WVON, Lamont Brown Speaks and South Africa’s SABC radio. Ms. Huff has just returned from South Africa on a powerful speaking tour to empower, encourage and enlighten the people on matters of discrimination and abuse. She is also the recipient of the “Remarkable Women” award from America’s Time Out for Youth, Inc. She was honored as a “2011 Women on Top of Her Game” by American’s Time Out for Youth, Inc.

    A discussion with Andre Batts about the changing complexions in Comics, Sci Fi and the New trend known as Afrofuturism and His own Brand Urban Style Comics which features his characters Dreadlocks, Lucas a.d.2166,BlackWatch and Mizraiim.


    Andre L. Batts born May 4, 1966, grew up on the west side of Detroit. Andre had a close knit family with his Mom, Dad, Brother and his many Cousins and of course Aunts and Uncles. They were all like Brothers and Sisters, but there was one difference, Andre was the only one that had a love for comic books. Growing up during the 70’s other kids would say to him, Man why are you always reading comic books. Andre had a love for comic books such as Dr. Strange, the X-men and the Avengers. He was a self taught artist, who learned to draw by looking at the images that were in the comics that he had been reading. Through time Andre stopped drawing due to becoming a teenager and discovering girls, at this time period Andre still occasionally picked up comics that he generally read as a child. He no longer bought his comics at the neighborhood store, but now Andre had to buy his comics at comic book specialty shops outside the urban Detroit area. It seemed to Andre that they were trying to keep African Americasn from having access to these comics, unless they had the means to go into the suburbs. STAY TUNED!!!!!
