Being part of a religious community has its benefits, in terms of identity, beliefs, and a clear distinction between yourself and those who are "outsiders." What is it like growing inside a powerful religious organization that is feared by the government? How does your life change when your father is martyred, and becomes a larger than life historical figure? How does that affect your sense of purpose in life? How does that affect the friendships and personal relationships you form? How do you help people to see you the person and not you the symbol of whatever people perceive your father, mother, and religious organization to be? Is it possible to have a personal relationship with someone who is outside of the religious structure that shaped your identity? Ilyasah Shabazz, shares her story in the book "Growing Up X"

Carl Tone Jones of Philly & Attorney Tiffany Simmons, spoken on the segment of this show.
State of the Black Parent with Shaunes Richardson will take place in New York this year in July!
"When a human being lives a life in which he or she enjoys freedom, justice and equality, awareness arises and one can focus on selfless giving - you qualify to be a parent because you are capable of the unconditional love that a parent has for a child.
But it is extremely difficult for Black people to get on and remain on this level, because we do not have freedom, justice and equality. We must give too much energy to the survival issues, which pull us down. This is why we cannot ignore our condition. Our freedom - or lack of - directly affects our ability to experience love and happiness in our community." Truth has come to you~
