Coming from Southwest Philadelphia, Brown believes in the power of unity. His story is an inspiration to youth who face similar challenges in life.

The vision for The Kickback Foundation is to create opportunities for individuals to thrive off of their own ambitions, but to do so with passion, integrity and style.

Tune in tonight as Daniel and Dani dive into the scripture to talk about the Word of God. Let us all get prepared for battle with the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17). To understand the word, you must study the word. And with study of the word, the Holy Spirit then tucks it away into your heart and brings forth the word in times of need. The word of God will get you through every battle you face in this world, whether through comfort, to fight off the enemy or knowledge.

Tonight we will be joined by some of the amazing women of The Well Women's Ministry, which is a ministry our host Dani Wright is apart of. They will share some insight on the ministry and what they have in store in the future.
Do you recall the story of the woman at the well? While most of us are familiar with the story from the Bible, sometimes we fail to apply the story to our own spiritual lives. The Well has both an individual and communal meaning. It represents fulfillment, healing, community, purity and a place of social engagement.
The purpose of the original service was to engage in a night of worship, prayer, praise and fellowship, while developing a better understanding of what a well represents for women individually and collectively. What originally was to be one service to encourage, empower, and set free women, transformed into something never imagined.

I recall, when the GOP had fielded 16 contenders for the POTUS, it became the butt of jokes from a cross-section of personalities, most notably, Barack Obama, yet ironically, this may have been the been the best example inclusive, participatory democracy.
Of course over time, the field has greatly narrowed to just 2 serious contenders, with Kasich, Bush and Rubio being the holders-on; and I rue over demise of Dr. Ben Carson. So today, it’s Trump and Crux, which has proven to be a most acrimonious relationship.
Yet, on the Democrat side, we have a deck which includes a non-descript former governor and a 74-year-old senator.
No one else in the Democratic Party desires to become the nest president of the USA? What’s the real reason, Joe Biden decided not to run, after reportedly, his late son, Beau, on his deathbed, encouraged him to do so?
Of course, we hear the ‘age card” being thrown about, but in all fairness, a President Sanders would be over 80 years old, at the end of two terms (there have been presidents who have opted not to seek a second term). But, the point is made, in deference to a woman, at 68, who clearly not a “spring chicken”. Trump is 69 years old.
What I find most interesting, is how the deck has been so well stacked to assure a Hillary Clinton victory (i.e. no REAL opposition) – the most glaring example of AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, based on gender AND race.
But, this begs the question, “will the black community swoon again, for another “Messiah”? Will we finally begin to THINK, in assessing candidates? I dread the very notion of a repeat of the ideological letdown of 2008 and 2012.
Will the reminder of scriptural standards be met with indifference or hostility, as it was and is, when it comes to Obama?
Tune in this Saturday; invite your friends and neighbors to CRITICAL DISCOURSE.
