Rev Jacqui Lewis and Rev Serene Jones headshots v2On the MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY Show which aired 12/07/14 on MSNBC the Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis and Rev. Dr. Serene Jones spoke about the importance of love, faith and connection in healing the fault lines of race in America. In just seven minutes they made so many powerful points that I do not want to paraphrase their statements. Here is a link to the video:

Also worthy of your time and consideration –

On 12/5/2014 TIME MAGAZINE’s website released an article by Rev. Dr. Serene Jones entitled “Corporations Are People But People of Color Are Not. The collusion of police and capitalist structures has prevented meaningful criminal justice reform”.

This was a well thought out article and it included a short video about a 14-year-old boy in Ferguson, MO who wonders if he could be the next target of police brutality.  Here is the link –

Comment about the 14-year-old in the video – by Stephen Maddox Sr. :

Back when I was this young man’s age I had the same kind of concerns. The Civil Rights efforts of my generation’s youth were only partially successful. The old racial demons did not die, they just morphed a bit. Now my grandchildren have inherited these problems.  I believe we must force these race issues to the top of national and local discussions. If our nation does not solve these problems we will continue to see them infect us, generation after generation.

I am a former teacher, marketing representative, labor negotiator and small business owner. As a black man born and raised in New York City I learned how to survive in the "neighborhood" and in business. Hearing about and witnessing the trials, tribulations, hopes and fears of my extended family and the people in their lives helped mold my life. Helping others with their own life journeys is my goal.
