We're kicking off our 2 year Anniversary with up and coming filmmaker MYA B! Her latest documentary "AFRAID OF DARK" deals with the heavy issue of criminalization, hyped fear and Incarceration of Black Men.. and MUCH MORE! Check out the Synopsis.
“Why is everyone so afraid of black men?” In her new documentary, “Afraid of Dark”, filmmaker Mya B. attempts to answer this question. In examining two of the most prevalent stereotypes about the black man as the brute and as the Mandingo we are led on a journey to understanding how the fear of these stereotypes have contributed to the rates of violence and incarceration against black men. We see how racism uses black on black crime and other unfortunate occurrences in black communities as justification for attacks on black males by police and citizen vigilantes alike.
The documentary challenges these stereotypes, and their resulting worldview, through candid interviews of black men -who span the spectrum of age and background – to illustrate through their own words and personal reflections the difference between how society perceives black men and how they define themselves.
Mya B. also profiles three generations of black men in her family that offered alternative archetypes of what black men can be and are in this society.
The Film Cast:
Dr. Cornel West, Tom Burrell, Sadat X, General Steele, Malik Yoba, Vondie Curtis Hall, Lou Myers, Kevin Powell and many more notable men of color

Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.
5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord;
8 As I live, saith the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord;
10 Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
11 For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

"The psychic distance between love and hate could be the mechanical difference between a smile and a sneer, or it could be the journey of a nervous impulse form the depths of one’s brain to the tip of one’s toe. But this impulse in its path through North america nerves may, if it is honest, find the passage disputed: may find the leap form the fiber of hate to that of love too taxing on its meager store energy—and so the long trip back may never be completed, may end in reconnaissance, a compromises, and then a lie..... "
This myth of the creation of the white race, called “Yacub’s History’” is an inversion of the racial death-wish of American Negroes today. Quite simply, many Negroes believe, as the principle of assimilation into white America implies, that the race problem in America cannot be settled until all traces of the black race are eliminated. Toward this end, many Negroes loathe the very idea of two very dark Negroes mating. The children, they say, will come out ugly. What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable. What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable. From the widespread use of cosmetics to bleach the black out of one’s skin and other concoctions to take Africa out of one’s hair, to the extreme, restored to by more Negroes than one might wash to believe, of undergoing nose thinning and lip-clipping operations, the racial death-wish of american Negroes—Yacub’s goal—takes its terrible toll. What has been happening for the past four hundred years is that the white man, through his access to black women. has been pumping his and genes of the blacks—i.e., has been fulfilling Yacub’s plan and accelerating the Negroes on death-wish."

Author Tiffany Campbell joins us to discuss her book, Scared of Beautiful. This is Tiffany's first appearance on the Author Chat Show.
About the book:
To be an aspiring photographer, the thought of beauty strikes fear in a young Bobbi Cochran; a fear that had paralyzed her since losing her love to her very best friend. Her world became dark, the hatred she felt in her heart plaguing her relationships with people and even the view she had of herself. Needing a fresh start, she relocates to California where a collision with a young and equally fearful Donovan McCall, changes the course of her life forever. Love was a word and an emotion that was non-existent in Donovan's world. He lived the selfish lifestyle of a young entrepreneur, owning a tattoo shop in West Hollywood. Women were magnets to his good looks, success and charm making it easy to maneuver around any emotion before it turned into something more. Women were disposable. He was never challenged, and when he was , she was replaced. It isn't until he runs into a rude Bobbi Cochran, that everything he had become so accustomed to turned foreign. Love and the art of it all was something both wanted to devour into but the fear of the beauty within was holding them back. Will they let go and allow love to take control? What are they so afraid of?
