Sending some #WillionaireWednesday love to @blackenterprise SVP @alfrededmondjr for these gems at #BMXCEL: “We’re reframing the framework of what a typical man of color is. It’s not what you perceive, it’s what you’re living...it’s what your goals + ambitions are.” #TalkAboutBias

Who helps our black children cope with traumas that they have developed because of where they grew up? 
Where are our MFTs, LCSWs and other organizations who are actively trying to help our black children work through the traumas they witness as children? Provide them with skills and the resources they need to help heal. If you know any - tag them. "The 'mass shootings' that happen on street corners in Black and Brown urban neighborhoods don't get the same level of attention...I wanted to understand how the particular kind of emotional experience or trauma of losing multiple friends to gun violence affects urban students' experience with school and their ideas about their own futures...
it seemed like our students didn't really have the tools to express their grief in ways that the adults recognized. What are the repercussions of that?” #LoveLearnLead

30 years ago, Kevin Richardson was an aspiring musician and a super talented trumpet player. Then, at just 14 years old, he was unjustly arrested, wrongfully accused and convicted in what’s since become known as the #CentralPark5 case.

"One of the most prevalent views within the African-American community is that we do not intentionally kill ourselves.  That suicide is something only white people or spiritually-weak people do.  That suicide is a cop-out, and that to even consider it is a “punk move”. However, these apparent suicides and clinical research clearly indicate that African-Americans do commit suicide." According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide is the third leading cause of death for black males, ages 15-24.

THE UNSUNG BLACK HEROES OF 9/11: “When the towers crumbled, Smith became part of a tragic sorority of mothers whose boys grew up to be firefighters who died as heroes...Leon Smith was one of 12 black firefighters to lose his life that day. Their stories have gone largely untold, their faces are rarely shown in the photo exhibits or memorial projects dedicated to the fallen firefighters." https://www.huffpost.com/entry/firefighters_n_956264

#MindfulMonday Black Men Practice Self-Care

Black Men are often ignored when referencing yoga, meditation or other forms of self-healing. There are non-profit organizations and instructors that have dedicated their lives to promoting healthy healing for black men. Click to the link for some resources. "The erasure of Black male healing is toxic for humanity because it implies that Black men don’t — and can’t — heal. It perpetuates invisibility surrounding Black male healing. We need to make Black men healing a normalized visual." http://bit.ly/2lJVPNy

“One of the potential solutions...is to change the way they're portrayed in the media. There are a lot of us doing great work in our communities, we're educated, we're powerful, and we're doing a lot of things that are positive. It would be great if we can turn on the tv and saw those powerful things that we're doing across the country, city-by-city." #TalkAboutBias #LoveLearnLead

#WellnessWednesday CBMA Celebrates @WeRun313

This Detroit group is bringing mental, spiritual and physical health to the 313. Founded by Joe Robinson and Lance Woods, the goal was to create a culture of health and wellness in the black community. Every Tuesday. Thursday and Saturday you will find a group of people running together, encouraging one another and making strides to better health. 
In a city that is 87% black and contains alarming cardiovascular disease statistics, this run community is encouraging runners of all ages and levels of experience to run with them.  If you are in Detroit, we encourage you to join their run. Or share this post so others who may live in the area can see this opportunity. 
CBMA thanks We Run 313 for their contribution to community.

#TeachingTuesday 
CBMA recognizes Roy Allela, a Kenyan engineer that invente a pair of gloves that translate sign language into speech. 
Sign-IO has five flex sensors on each finger to determine how much each finger is bent in order to recognize the word or letter that is being spelled. The gloves connect via Bluetooth to an Android phone and utilize an Android app that has the text-to-speech capability. 
Inspired by his deaf niece, Allela has created a prototype that will break down another language barrier and bring the community closer. CBMA Thanks You Roy Allela.

@jordy._ inspired me with this moment when he stepped out his comfort zone and subtlety demanded to be introduced to @isiahthomas because of his passion for sports journalism. He is a junior at @sunyfredonia23 and was one of the 24 young men who participated in the @blackenterprise #BMXCEL Summit. They all exuded the @campaignforbma #LoveLearnLead ethos in Miami!
