    Hood PTSD is Real

    I know a secret that most men and women in prison and in urban America suffer from. Our secret is is Hood Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Hood PTSD). Hood PTSD is an understanding and recognition that men, women and children raised in war-torn ghettos across the United States of America face the same harms, anxieties and mental disorders as our soldiers who serve in the military and go to war.

    I Thought You Meant Forever

    You must love me, or not. It’s been a long time and time has revealed a truth we knew but ignored: You weren’t down for me. The many times you spoke those words were only a lie.

    Only We Can Improve Our Communities

    Well…50 years ago, we couldn’t imagine the day when a black man would become President of the United States. Then out of nowhere came Barack Obama–half white, half black, but black enough.
