Working out my thoughts for a talk to a group young black teenage males who are not “churched”. Freestyle with me…
It’s time for us to invest in our young people! Too many young folk dropping out of school, too many young folk that don’t believe in their own gifts and talents, too many young folk with demoralized and beat down psyches. While I think we must continue to address the wealth disparities that exist, we need to do much work in the psychological and spiritual realm.
How do we begin to restore what was stripped from the black community in America through 400 years of inhumane slavery, jim crow laws, lynching, segregation, brutality, stereotypes, and hatred?
It is an early morning… as we grab lunch and prepare to serve throughout the week, low-income and elderly in the city of Pittsburgh. I’ll see how many updates I can do this week (all from my phone). Check out the Pittsburgh Project at http://www.pittsburghproject.com
