QUOTE OF THE DAY: JACKIE ROBINSON
"A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."
I am a California man born and bred but adopted right out of Florida. I teach 8th grade english at a middle school here in the Los Angeles area. I am also an actor and entertainer. I love to talk and debate the various issues of the day. I also love to meet people and converse with them. Educationally wise I am a proud graduate of Florida A & M University (FAMU)Go Rattlers!! I earned my Masters Degree in Education in 2004 and I was recenly taking classes to earn a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. However I decided to take a hiatus from that to pursue my other passion:acting.
Let me know what you think about anything on this blog or just simply drop in and say hello. I promise that I will get back to you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

ETERNAL SPOTLIGHT & FOCUS ON: DUNBAR VILLAGE
On the evening of June 18th 2007 in the public housing complex known as Dunbar Village in West Palm Beach, Florida. A 35 year old single Black woman and mother was repeatedly raped for up to three hours by 10 Black males. In addition, they forced her to perform a sexual act on her 12 year old son. This horrific crime against humanity was what ultimately led me to becoming a blogger and creating a blog of my own. Myself and those who have been following and monitoring this atrocity are working to ensure that there is justice for the victims, increased awareness of violent crimes against Black women, effective laws and enforcement to protect Black women from violence and and to ultimately work to prevent more horrors like Dunbar that are unfortunately becoming all too common.
