MyNDTALK - Is His America Your America - S.L.Young

The day I was born my mom looked at me with pride to determine if had safely arrived. In response to my mother’s request to determine if I was okay, she heard someone say, “It’s a boy,” which gave me a label on my first day. As I navigated the neighborhoods away from my house, I was clearly in areas in which I clearly stood out. It was in these moments I learned that I would be described by a label regardless of the things that I brought to the table. The words that are often used don’t describe who I am, but these types of descriptors are sometimes negatively attached to me instead of the positive man that I am." S.L.Young , Huffington Post 2014

MyNDTALK - LIVIN' in the SHADE: Dr. Eric L. Johnson & Akili Uchenna

More often than not, the relationships between fathers and sons impact the understanding that many males develop about notions of manhood. Even when a man's father has not been present in a way that meets his expectations, his understanding of what it means to be a man is impacted either by the noted absence or the perceived relationship inadequacies. In such cases, men are faced painfully with only two choices: Extend an unhealthy and unhappy notion of manhood or do the work that heals his heart and soul in a way that makes him better. However, when men have positive and healthy relationships with their fathers, they have the opportunity to grow from their father's successes and learn from his mistakes. No father and son relationship can be called perfect and as a result, there are always things that can be improved, even after one of them is gone." Father and son, Eric & Akili, discuss their relationship with honesty, humor, insight and thoughtfulness. Their conversation is a powerful one that should be heard by all.
