CBC-MY BROTHER’S KEEPER TOWN HALL
What a time to be alive. The violence against our men of color in America is devastating to say the least. With all of the recent shootings and killings of our men and women going viral, it deeply saddens me to say that this is nothing on the soil of the said free.
If you don’t believe me, take a trip to the recently opened National Museum of African and American History of Culture. In all this Cimmerian shade, the light of My Brother’s Keeper Alliance – an independent nonprofit dedicated to creating pathways to success for boys and young men of color – held a My Brother’s Keeper Town Hall Meeting, sponsored by TV ONE, at this year’s Legislative Conference during the 2016 Congressional Black Caucus to assist in the shaping of the minds and spirits of our male kinship.
In attendance, was none other than the gracious Florida State Representative, Mrs. Frederica Wilson –founder of 5000 role models. Newly inducted, Spirit Ray Santiago of Ash vs. Evil Dead, RonRaeco Lee and Jesse T. Usher of Starz Survivors Remorse all showcased their support for the movement. Not to mention, Power star, Omari Hardwick, a 2015 inductee, showed his passion and backing as the Keynote speaker of the town hall. This is a defining moment in history. Let our light remain lit as we all walk in this movement together, Keeping our Brother’s Safe and on the road to creating their own legacy.
