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.

Business of Monday Money Watch[Talk] - Apostle SB Barber talks with power one part of the power couple Mychael & Stephanie Wright, owners of Golden Thyme on Selby. "If Cheers was a Jazz-themed coffee shop, they'd rename it after this place. The best thing about GT is the community they've established. More than likely, one of the owners will take your order and they will do so with sincere enthusiasm. They greet countless customers by their first name. You might find yourself, as I have, sitting among officials from the NAACP, boxing enthusiasts, landscapers, students from St. Thomas, or political candidates strategizing for a debate." --Review from Ryan.
Plus, Stephanie and Mychael Wright are founders of the Selby Avenue Jazz Fest. They work hard every year to make the Fest happen - A FREE full day of jazz from neighborhood, regional, national and international artists.

LOTL The Comfort Zone Presents Demetria McKinney. Debuts new single '100' Feat The Brat
Widely known for her role as “Janine Payne” on the hit TBS sitcom “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom, Demetria can currently be seen on Lifetime in a recurring “Devious Maids” role, and on TV One as a primary character on “The Rickey Smiley Show.” The first single off of the EP is sure fire club and radio hit titled “100.” It is a hip hop infused women’s anthem featuring one of the genre’s first ladies - Da Brat. “I think this song is going to be the last thing that people expected to hear from me, but it is really who I am,” laughs Demetria. “I like to say the song was ‘inspired’ by me. I didn’t write it but it came out of a conversation I had with the producers (the good guys) about what I wanted to represent on the project.” Demetria really wanted a female rapper on “100” and a mutual friend connected her with Da Brat, who loved the song and agreed to lend her vocals.
