SORT BY Relevancy
The ’68 Olympics is most remembered by the bowed heads and raised fists of Tommie Smith and John Carlos. Afterwards, the United States team swept the individual 400 meter dash. Ron and his teammates stood on the podium during the medal ceremony wearing emblematic black berets. Ron’s second trip to the victory stand, with his gold medal winning 4x400m relay teammates, also included a silent stance against racial discrimination in the United States. These protests not only represent some of the most memorable moments in Olympic history but an important milestone in America's civil rights movement as well. The 4x400m relay event provided not only an exciting race, but a historic event. Ron’s time of 43.2 seconds was the fastest 400-meter relay split in track and field history and stood for more than 20 years!
His time was ultimately responsible for the United States’ world record setting time of 2:56.16, which shattered the world record by over three seconds and was unbroken for 25 years. In addition to the collective gold, Ron captured the bronze in the individual 400-meter race where the United States swept the medal stand at the ’68 Olympics, in doing so Ron ran the fastest 400 meters ever run in lane #1 at 44.4. Although Ron’s Olympic achievements are stellar, and his performance in the 4x400 meter relay proved to be phenomenal, his story of triumph in the face of adversity began long before the ‘68 Olympics.

Ricki Stevenson has served as creative thinker, lead guide and CEO of Black Paris Tours since its inception in 1998. Stevenson, a native of Oakland, California, is a former New York and Bay Area TV/Radio news anchor/reporter and talk show host. Ricki holds the distinction of having worked as a United Nations radio correspondent and as one of the first Black international travel reporters. She holds a master's degree in education and history from Stanford University, with an emphasis on African and African American history. Stevenson says her dream of living in Paris began when her Mother, a former dancer, took her to see Josephine Baker perform when she was three years old. Over the years, her dream was fueled by interviews with some of the famous who fled racism in the US to live or spend time in Paris: Ray Charles, Earth Kitt, artist Lois Mailou Jones and choreographer, Geoffrey Holder. The idea for Black Paris Tours grew out of that dream and her six years work as an international travel reporter.
Dr.George Stewart is an Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who has worked with traumatized foster youth for 30+ years. A graduate of Harvard College and Columbia Medical School, he initially completed his training in Family Medicine at the University of Washington and at UCSF. He then worked as a Family Physician for several years in an impoverished barrio near San Jose, California. He returned to complete his training in Adult and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UC Davis.
Working with Seneca Family of Agencies, a large non-profit providing a variety of mental health services to youth and their families, in various treatment settings in Northern California, he was able to observe repeatedly the overuse of medications with traumatized youth who had behavior problems. He spent much more time tapering youth off of medications than he did prescribing them.
He is extremely pleased that the Mercury News' Series on "Medicating Our Youth" is attracting a lot of attention to a long-neglected population.
D'Anthony was born in 1995 in Oakland, California and is a foster home youth and will share with us his experiences in foster care. He likes making beats and his favorite producer is DJ Mustard. D'Anthony says he "enjoys breathing and waking up every day and thinking God he's alive."
Guests: Investigative Reporter Karen de SA, and Dr. George Stewart Psychiatrist.
For the past four months, the Bay Area News Group has been documenting the alarming use of psychiatric medications in California's foster care system -- and the impact on thousands of vulnerable kids who suffer the consequences.
Here, in Part 5 of our investigative series "Drugging Our Kids," we present a documentary video that gives voice to many of these young people, who say they were silenced during their youth by the powerful drugs.
From Los Angeles to the Bay Area to Humboldt County, reporter Karen de Sá and photographer Dai Sugano interviewed more than 175 people, including dozens of current and former foster youth who were frequently moved and heavily medicated by a system that struggled to manage their complicated childhoods.
Now, there's a growing call for change among former foster youth, psychiatrists, public health nurses and youth advocates. The stories of lost childhoods and remarkable resilience provide compelling lessons on how California can better address their trauma and stop "Drugging Our Kids."
