TGR: A FATHER’S CONFESSION: Laying the Foundation for a Powerful Generation of Women-to-be
Today’s black woman, like many black men, have a lot of pain. While I won’t go deep into the history of a syndrome that goes back to the days of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade – the Ma’afa – the greatest holocaust in the history of humankind, I will say that I believe the solution lies in our actions. We could play victim. However, I’d rather focus on the victory - and how to attain it.
I’d rather put my energy into meeting and supporting and collaborating with the dynamic women in our circles who are making earth-shaking and universe-shattering moves, connecting the dots, playing to their strengths, opening businesses, building collaborations – beginning here and extending outwards to the nearest posts like wildfire.

TGR: CLOSING SCHOOLS BUILDING JAILS: CAN STOP BLACK JUVENILES FROM SUCCESS!
The State of Maryland, professes to have the highest rate of college graduates, is the “Hub” for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, yet, the majority of Black people, juveniles, are not being educated in this knowledge based society.
John Ruskin said, “Let us reform our schools, and we shall find little reform needed in our prisons.”
Black children in underserved communities need your voice, your outrage, your disgust at this despicable mandate by the leaders of this state. Why are there more Black children in the penal system? Why are there more schools being closed? Where are the schools that are being closed? Why are we tolerating this growth of the Prison Industrial Complex? Read in Full >>

Meeting Morehouse College President Franklin Was An Inspirational Experience
He, in fact, is a reminder – with all due respect to all of the black schools out there – why I first chose – at the urging of my high school counselors - to attend Morehouse. It was a vivid reminder of the three semesters I was blessed to be at – in my mind – the greatest institution on the planet with some of the greatest minds I have ever known. Morehouse students like Adam Scott, Leo Hyman and Robbie Scott from Baltimore and Steven Tolbert, the son of a Liberian president, come to mind. Read in Full >>
