    "State Of The Black Youth: The Role Of Self Esteem and Black America" PT. 3

    in Lifestyle

    Continuing our discussion on the state of the youth in Black America and the roles we play in it...
    Universally, the unpopular teen will engage in behavior or activities that may seem uncharacteristic to the teen or outrageous to society. For Black youths, the universal standards of popularity are doubled, as just being Black is projected as a disgusting quality, and the horrors they endure because of their race is being divided up between being denied that it exists by Whites who are too uncomfortable thinking that anyone in their community are racists, and Blacks who are too afraid to "rock the boat" in White America. Throw in the generational changes made in the Black community village, and you are left with a volatile group of individuals facing big issues with small aresenals and no experienced leaders to guide them through the process. SInce it's clear that one half of the world has no interest in their betterment, how much of a role does the shunning and inaction of Black AMerica play in the creation of poor self-esteem in its own youth?

    State of the Young Black Man 2016

    in Motivation

    It's our second annual State of the Young Black Man address with Entrepreneur Marquis Coates and Young Activist Caleb Jackson.


    If your not a young man, this will be a most enlivening, informational, and engaging address for your little brother, nephew, and any parents of young men.


    How do we show them that school is not a right now job, but the foundation of your future? How do we keep them in school?


    Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks commit around half of homicides in the United States. Where do we start? Turning criminals into students and upstanding citizens sounds like an impossible charge.. but it's possible; we have to believe it is, but how? How is it possible?


    Also, how do we become better young black fathers, realistically and perceptionally?


    Entrepreneur Marquis Coates and Young Activist Caleb Jackson will be rejoining us for a compelling panel discussion!

    Lent, Legacy, and Legitmacy: The Black Religious Struggle

    in Christianity

    Blacks have spent centuries attempting to measure up to western Christianity's religious standards. Black preachers heralded high moral standards and strict religious observances that kept the idea of "heavenly rewards" ever before the eyes of their members. Has this desire for religious and holy legitmacy and legacy contributed to the black church's current condition of carnality and withdrawal. What role does black gospel music and preachers have in reaffirming the contemporary religious struggle in the black church? Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of interest
