Quick note from Dr. Boyce: If you’re in the DC area and want to come out to see the third stop of the New Paradigm tour, please RSVP at this link. I’ll be there, along with Drs. Steve Perry, Towanna Freeman, Wilmer Leon, former NBA player and author Etan Thomas and filmmaker Janks Morton. Our forums are enthusiastic efforts to provide action-oriented solutions from some of the strongest minds in Black America: One of our mottos is that Black leadership starts in your living room – we must all invest to make our families and communities stronger.
I insisted that these forums be done without corporate sponsorship, because it’s silly for us to demand our economic independence and then turn around and beg white people for money. This is done for the people, by the people and is not “Black leadership brought to you by McDonald’s.” So, if you’d like to support our cause, we would sincerely appreciate your purchasing at least one product from the Your Black World Store (the stuff is really good, especially for the price, so we’re not asking you for a handout either).
To learn more about this event, please click here. You can also see highlights from our previous forums, featuring Dr. Cornel West, Min. Louis Farrakhan and others. We can’t solve every problem in black America, but we’re going to do our best to make a contribution.
Until we meet again, please stay strong, be blessed and be educated.
Dr. Boyce Watkins

It’s sad […]
