Are we as black men powerless in America? Some may think that it is a ridiculous question, but is it?
The media will lead you to believe that black men are only good as athletes, entertainers and criminals. Our laws tell us that the killing of a black man has less value than anyone else in America unless we are the perpetrators of the crime.
The image of black men as misogynist has caused us to have a tenious relationship with many black women, while our absence from our children has caused our mothers to be fiercely protective of us. Mass Incarceration, poor education and police brutality have damaged a generation!
Even with these challenges, we have the leader of the free world in our midst in President Barack Obama, Neurosurgeons, CEOs, and Billionaires among us. How have people like Kenneth Chenault, done so well, yet our children are still dying in the streets at the hands of our system just for being black.
We'll dig into this conversation with The Founder of The Jordan Davis Foundation, Ron Davis.

Bianca T. Stephens is the founder and visionary behind WORLDWIDE HYDROCEPHALUS FOUNDATION, INC, After her own experience with hydrocephalus in 2008 she was compelled and inspired to alarm the public about hydrocephalus. Her vision began in 2010, 2 years after her recovery when she realize how limited information was for the brain condition. ??
??WORLDWIDE HYDROCEPHALUS FOUNDATION, INC began with a simple idea of shaving her head to show her scars from two brain surgeries. She knew this would be an attention getter. It would also get people asking about the scars on her head which would lead her to explain what hydrocephalus is.
This documentary unmasks all things about hydrocephalus; visiting 6 of the 7 continents on the globe. Through her strong support group and worldwide following she has been able to meet neurosurgeons and interview others with hydrocephalus all over the world. Carrying the torch of hydrocephalus awareness is an exaggeration. She is only the mouthpiece for the masses worldwide whom live with hydrocephalus. More research, awareness, support groups and updated treatment options are needed for them. ?

Our guests are Dr. Raymond Moody, author of the classic “Life After Life” that introduced the phenomenon of the near-death-experience’ to the mainstream, and David Hinshaw, the producer of the new video series of conversations between Dr. Moody and people who have had near death and other experiences that offer profound insights into the ultimate human questions.
Their first film features a conversation with neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander, author of the runaway bestseller ‘Proof of Heaven’. The conversation of these two medical doctors advances the discussion to a whole new level, as they consider science, quantum physics, the question of the soul and the possibility of the eventual combination of science and spirituality as partners rather than adversaries.
If you would like to propose an idea for this video series please contact David Hinshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org For more info visit www.davidhinshaw.com
