The Dr. Vibe Show (general)

One day you’re gonna be the one driving and a police officer is gonna pull you over. Cause they can. So they will. When that happens, what are you gonna do?

February 26, 2012, Florida. A 17-year-old Black boy wearing a hoodie leaves a 7/11 carrying a bag of Skittles and an iced tea. He never makes it home. Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers invites us into one teen’s now-infamous last moments, and his intricate dance to the afterlife.

Written by Makambe K. Simamba and presented by b current performing arts, Our Fathers builds a space for the Black community to grieve together and interrogates the relationship between personal tragedy and community anguish. Our Fathers was developed with the support of Alberta Theatre Projects and runs at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre April 11 to 18, 2019.

A fitting grand finale for Black History Month, the first Black Canadian-made film of 2019 launches into general theatrical release on Thursday, February 28, 2019. Black Canadian filmmaker Frances-Anne Solomon’s internationally acclaimed feature film, HERO, makes its Canadian theatrical premiere at TIFF Bell Lightbox, located at 350 King St. W., Toronto, ON. In celebration of HERO’s achievement, Ghanian superstar Adjetey Anang, and British rising star Eric Kofi Abrefa (Snowden, The Harlots) are confirmed to attend along with Peter Williams (Canada) and Nickolai Salcedo (Trinidad and Tobago).

“Frances-Anne Solomon has done so much to bring crucial stories from the African Diaspora to screen,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF’s Artistic Director and Co-Head. “Her portrayal of the Ulric Cross story illuminates an important chapter in Caribbean history. We’re honoured to present HERO at TIFF Bell Lightbox, in collaboration with CTFF.”

Filmed in Trinidad, Ghana, the UK and Canada, HERO is the story of Ulric Cross, who in 1941, left his small island to seek his fortune, and became the Royal Air Force’s most decorated West Indian. Then his life took a dramatically different course when he followed the call of history. He joined the independence movements sweeping the world in the 50s and 60s.

Toronto’s Canadian premiere launches screenings across Canada and a cinematic world tour that includes Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe.

HERO features an all-star cast of top international Black actors in powerful roles. Joseph Marcell (Fresh Prince of Belair) plays Trinidadian author CLR James, alongside Fraser James’ (Terminator) as Trinidadian revolutionary George Padmore, while British-Nigerian actor Jimmy Akingbola plays Ghana’s first president Kwame Nkrumah, and Adjetey Anang (Adam’s Apple, Potomanto) plays Congo’s ill-fated first Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba.

Canada’s Peter Williams (Stargate SG1), and Trinidad and Tobago’s Nickolai Salcedo co-lead the extraordinary cast, along with Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Informer), Pippa Nixon (John Carter, Unforgotten), and Valerie Buhagiar (Bad Blood, Murdoch Mysteries).

Several members of the international cast will be attending the premiere and will participate in the post-film Talk Back session. The official after-party location will soon be announced.

HERO captures a transformative moment in Black global history. Securing a general release for the film presents a significant opportunity for us to share our story with a broad and diverse audience. The film is important especially for young Black people to understand on whose broad shoulders we stand, to learn who led big lives and who were heroes,” says Frances-Anne Solomon, director and producer of HERO. “Launching at the prestigious TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre acknowledges the impact of this film on the Canadian theatre ecology and its capacity for exposure beyond the Caribbean and Africa.”

Frances-Anne Solomon

Recently, Frances-Anne Solomon, director and producer of HERO was on our show.

During our conversation, Ms. Solomon talked about:

– A little of her background and Caribbean Tales, CineFam
– The background and story behind Hero and the selection of the cast

It’s the little program that grew, the roots of The Transitional Year Programme (TYP) at the University of Toronto began in the Black community through two summer programs in 1969 and 1970, and since then, hundreds of graduates have gone onto successful careers. “It’s a place where the students learn to use their voice, develop empathy and unlock their imaginations in order to dream something bigger for themselves,” says TYP Registrar Lauriann Wade, “TYP makes excellence accessible.”

TYP is a full-time, eight month access-to-University program and gives those who do not have the formal qualifications – like a high school diploma – intense hands on preparation for entry into post-secondary education. Applicants come from the targeted Indigenous, African-Canadian and LGBTQ communities where finances, family issues or other circumstances beyond their control hindered their schooling. However, the Ontario Progressive Conservative government’s recent move to eliminate free tuition for low-income students will make access to higher education difficult once again for applicants to TYP.

“The majority of TYP students are from lower income backgrounds with a family income below $50, 000,” explains Lance McCready, Director of TYP. “Having a larger percentage of funding coming from loans will undoubtedly create more debt for our students who have fewer financial resources…it can serve as a deterrent for those from lower income backgrounds trying to access post-secondary education.”

In spite of hurdles like this latest one, TYP has a proven track record of success:

Rocco Achampong – born in Ghana, Rocco came to Canada in 1988 with his parents and four siblings. He entered TYP in 1999 and went on to study history and political science at U of T’s Trinity College. He is now a lawyer who has run for Toronto mayor and city council. Rocco led the legal challenge against Premier Doug Ford’s cutting down of the city’s wards.

Jandell Nicholas – She went from staffing co-ordinator at an employment agency to earning her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts, Geography and Planning. Jandell now works as a teaching assistant in the university’s department of Geography and Planning and is a published author.

Rahel Woldegiorgis – Once given the opportunity, Rahel embraced education. After finishing TYP, she got her Honours BA from the University of Toronto during which time she did two international exchanges – one at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the other at the University of Nairobi. She completed her Masters of Arts (Social Justice and Community Engagement) at Wilfrid Laurier University and is now the Residential Supervisor at Eva’s, a shelter for homeless youth.

Recently, Lauriann Wade, TYP Registrar and graduate of TYP, was on our show talking about the TYP.

During our conversation, Ms. Wade talked about:

– Some of her background and how she got involved in the Transisitonal Year Programme (TYP) including what was preventing her from going to university, how she found out about TYP, the history of the program, her first day in the programme and her graduation day, the programme itself including the application process
– Why do some students drop out of the programme
– What does her role comprise of
– How have students changed over the years
– The drop in the number of Black and Indigenous students applying for the programme
– How has the programme changed since she was in the programme
– How people find out about TYP

Beth Ostrander

Beth Ostrander coaches those “affected by religion” to bring Pleasure into their sex lives.

Beth’s own journey is what has made this her life’s work. After struggling with shame, depression and general lack of satisfaction in life, Beth provides coaching using her personal journey of transformation and the tools that she found most effective with herself and her clients.

Over the years, Beth’s coaching has yielded results for individuals and couples that were held back in the bedroom. They have learned how to know themselves better and how to communicate with their partners to create increased intimacy and pleasure in the bedroom.

Beth’s coaching is beyond the bedroom. Her clients have consistently discovered increased passion in every area of their life as they have uncovered what was stopping them in their intimate lives. Consistently people gain ease, confidence and satisfaction in their intimate lives after working with Beth.

Bryan Duarte

Bryan Duarte is as an Entrepreneur, Engineer, Explorer, Storyteller and a Master Problem Solver. He grew up in a strong Catholic family and as is typical in most families, sex and sexuality were topics that were not discussed. However, from a very young age he always wanted to learn more about human sexuality even though that was not encouraged. Yet this was more than idle curiosity as he spent a lot of time, from the age of 12, researching this topic in the library.

Since that early age he has been on his own personal journey to better understand his own sexuality, especially for what that means for men’s sexuality inside of marriage. It was that deep desire to explore what was behind his own sexuality and what he first took for ‘Is there something wrong with me’ that also led him to become one of Beth’s clients. Through working with Beth and lots of his own personal development work, he no longer felt like there was
something to fix; there is nothing to feel shameful about or hide away from.

That role of coach and client eventually has evolved to Beth and Bryan finding opportunities to work together. In his engineering professional world, he is all about helping his clients solve their complex issues. And in telling the story from his own personal journey, he is now passionate about bringing those learnings and his ability to solve complex problems to help people discover their own personal sexuality.

As part of exploring this topic with other men, Bryan is an active member of the ‘The Universal Brotherhood’ (TUB). TUB is an inspired fraternal forum for evolutionary men who are actively committed to the concepts of Strength, Wisdom, Integrity, Prosperity and Compassion as foundations for exceptional, authentic, masculine be-ing.

Bryan currently lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife of 12 years and their 9-year old son and is actively involved in his two adult daughter’s lives, as they study and work.

Recently, Beth and Bryan were on on our show talking about Converting Religious Shame to Soulful Intimacy – A Three Part Series – Part One.

During the conversation, Beth and Bryan talked about:

– Some of their backgrounds and some of their experiences with sexuality, religion and intimacy when they were younger
– How the way they were raised effect their intimacy in their 20’s and their 30’s
– How did they met
– The percentage of Beth’s clients that have experienced religious shame and what her clients tell her when she first meets
– The reason why they wanted to do this series
– What are they sharing with their kids about intimacy

Tara Lessard’s Story …

It was August 2015. I spent a lot of time crying by the Delaware River, just blocks from my Morrisville, Pennsylvania home. I suffered from acid reflux for a year and knew something more was wrong but didn’t know what it was. I tried diet modification, sleeping sitting up and natural remedies to no avail. I finally went to a local hospital ER in September after having extreme pain in my stomach with immense amount of pressure when I sat down. They did a CT scan and quickly admitted me to the hospital where I was told the gynecologist would provide results the next day and family should be present. It was then the doctor shared I had stage 4 ovarian cancer and there was nothing they could do for me. I was in shock. No one in my family had cancer.

I ended up starting treatment at a nearby cancer hospital. They said I was a textbook case and recommended chemotherapy and surgery – and said I would be fine. I didn’t get a sense they knew me or cared about my concerns. They didn’t see me as a unique individual.

I reached out to Cancer Treatment Centers of America after my sister researched other options. Unfortunately, I was too sick to travel, so I treated closer to home at another cancer center and underwent an aggressive plan given the cancer growth beyond the ovaries. I had debilitating pain, eventually leading to use of a wheelchair. After a few months, I learned the disease metastasized to my spleen. Doctors said I probably had two years to live. I was in my mid-40s and wanted more. I went back into research mode, consulting with multiple, well-known facilities who all said the same thing. That’s when I picked up the phone and followed through with CTCA to get another opinion.

Tara’s CTCA Experience

In March 2017, I flew to CTCA in Atlanta and met with Dr. Geisler who said, “Your cancer is my priority.” He explained he would remove the spleen and any other evidence of the disease. After surgery, I would undergo six rounds of chemotherapy and was a good candidate for a new immunotherapy drug.

I instantly loved my team and had faith in Dr. Geisler.

By late April, I was set for surgery, but got extremely sick and was admitted to the local hospital for obstructed bowel. Once released, I couldn’t eat or drink, so I went to another hospital for three weeks. They told me they wanted to operate, but I refused. I knew I needed to get back to CTCA. The doctors put in a central line for TPN, so my mom, sister and I hired a medical transport van and drove down to Atlanta so I could have surgery there.

Surgery was intense, involving my spleen, pieces of my small bowel and more. It was successful. A week later, I went back for emergency surgery followed by an extended hospital stay. The care was amazing. Everyone from Nursing, Transportation, Pastoral Care and Cancer Fighters spent time with us. Dr. Rosenberg performed adjustments to help my back, Dr. Johnson helped my side effects with acupuncture, and Physical Therapy ensured I got up to walk. After discharge, I returned to CTCA every three weeks for chemo and received my last treatment on my 45th birthday. My CA levels drastically decreased…and I remain cancer free.

I am so grateful for the entire staff at CTCA. My mom and I are now patient and caregiver advocates. We love our changing roles in this journey and are so happy we can give back by helping others. I am so grateful not to be just living, but thriving.

Additional Information:
● I live in Morrisville, Pennsylvania (north of Philadelphia)
● I love cooking, photography, making jewelry and painting
● I’m currently in a scholarship program for The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia (home to one of the world’s greatest collections of impressionist, post-impressionist and early modern paintings)
● Mom and I love being Cancer Fighter Care Net (CFCN) volunteers

Recently, Serena and Tara were on our show continuing their conversation about ovarian cancer.

During the conversation, the ladies talked about:

– What they have been up to and their involvement in ovarian cancer month events (last September)
– Updates in regards to ovarian cancer
– Tara’s daily routine which includes taking seventeen vitamins a day
– The medical community response to fighting ovarian cancer

All Our Own is live international audio conversation for Generation X Women of Color.

It is a safe space where Gen X Women of Color can discuss their issues with input from women of color from other generations. However, Generation X women are at the center of the conversation.

The regular panelists are: Aisha Staggers Julissa Borbon and L.A. Wade.

Tonight’s conversation topic is the 2018 American Midterm Elections.

Tonight’s special guest is Dominque Grisby of The 94 Percent.

Here is a little about The 94 Percent …

We represent the 94 percent of black women who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Election. No, that doesn’t mean we all agreed with her politics or policies, but we understood that our nation was headed into the apocalypse. 2016 was the perfect storm for fuckery and dumbassery, and the 2016 Election was the climax. And like our mothers and grandmothers before us, we needed to give the nation a race pep talk by turning out to vote in historic numbers for…a white woman.

No, we didn’t create ourselves because of a love for Hillary Clinton, but rather the recognition that black women were once again trying to save a world that doesn’t give a shit about them.

We’ve heard it over and over again: “We should’ve done MORE to save the election.” But we did. 94 percent of us did. Why didn’t y’all do your jobs?

Oh. Because a white woman wasn’t even enough for white women.

But that’s not the point. The point is black women throughout history have put our bodies on the line to protect our families and our community, and we have gotten nothing in return for it. We compromise for the greater good of humanity to save a world from destroying itself, and in return, receive no gratification for the sacrifices and obstacles we face to help others.

So, here we are. But this time, we’re celebrating one another without the need for recognition from others. We’ve got a lot of fucking black girl magic, and we’re keeping it to ourselves.

So, welcome. Kick off your shoes, take off your bra, and relax.

During the conversation, the ladies talked about:

– The story behind The 94 Percent
– Some thoughts about the last American presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton’s Campaign and white women
– How women of color in America and Canada getting more involved in politics and some of the barriers that they are facing
– Some thoughts about the current midterms campaign
– Latino American support of the Republican party

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Tara Lessard’s Story …

It was August 2015. I spent a lot of time crying by the Delaware River, just blocks from my Morrisville, Pennsylvania home. I suffered from acid reflux for a year and knew something more was wrong but didn’t know what it was. I tried diet modification, sleeping sitting up and natural remedies to no avail. I finally went to a local hospital ER in September after having extreme pain in my stomach with immense amount of pressure when I sat down. They did a CT scan and quickly admitted me to the hospital where I was told the gynecologist would provide results the next day and family should be present. It was then the doctor shared I had stage 4 ovarian cancer and there was nothing they could do for me. I was in shock. No one in my family had cancer.

I ended up starting treatment at a nearby cancer hospital. They said I was a textbook case and recommended chemotherapy and surgery – and said I would be fine. I didn’t get a sense they knew me or cared about my concerns. They didn’t see me as a unique individual.

I reached out to Cancer Treatment Centers of America after my sister researched other options. Unfortunately, I was too sick to travel, so I treated closer to home at another cancer center and underwent an aggressive plan given the cancer growth beyond the ovaries. I had debilitating pain, eventually leading to use of a wheelchair. After a few months, I learned the disease metastasized to my spleen. Doctors said I probably had two years to live. I was in my mid-40s and wanted more. I went back into research mode, consulting with multiple, well-known facilities who all said the same thing. That’s when I picked up the phone and followed through with CTCA to get another opinion.

Tara’s CTCA Experience

In March 2017, I flew to CTCA in Atlanta and met with Dr. Geisler who said, “Your cancer is my priority.” He explained he would remove the spleen and any other evidence of the disease. After surgery, I would undergo six rounds of chemotherapy and was a good candidate for a new immunotherapy drug.

I instantly loved my team and had faith in Dr. Geisler.

By late April, I was set for surgery, but got extremely sick and was admitted to the local hospital for obstructed bowel. Once released, I couldn’t eat or drink, so I went to another hospital for three weeks. They told me they wanted to operate, but I refused. I knew I needed to get back to CTCA. The doctors put in a central line for TPN, so my mom, sister and I hired a medical transport van and drove down to Atlanta so I could have surgery there.

Surgery was intense, involving my spleen, pieces of my small bowel and more. It was successful. A week later, I went back for emergency surgery followed by an extended hospital stay. The care was amazing. Everyone from Nursing, Transportation, Pastoral Care and Cancer Fighters spent time with us. Dr. Rosenberg performed adjustments to help my back, Dr. Johnson helped my side effects with acupuncture, and Physical Therapy ensured I got up to walk. After discharge, I returned to CTCA every three weeks for chemo and received my last treatment on my 45th birthday. My CA levels drastically decreased…and I remain cancer free.

I am so grateful for the entire staff at CTCA. My mom and I are now patient and caregiver advocates. We love our changing roles in this journey and are so happy we can give back by helping others. I am so grateful not to be just living, but thriving.

Additional Information:
● I live in Morrisville, Pennsylvania (north of Philadelphia)
● I love cooking, photography, making jewelry and painting
● I’m currently in a scholarship program for The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia (home to one of the world’s greatest collections of impressionist, post-impressionist and early modern paintings)
● Mom and I love being Cancer Fighter Care Net (CFCN) volunteers

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease found in people who have had multiple head injuries. Symptoms may include behavioral problems, mood problems, and problems with thinking. This typically does not begin until years after the injuries. It often gets worse over time and can result in dementia. It is unclear if the risk of suicide is altered.

Most documented cases have occurred in athletes involved in contact sports such as American football, wrestling, boxing, ice hockey, rugby and soccer. Other risk factors include being in the military, prior domestic violence, and repeated banging of the head.The exact amount of trauma required for the condition to occur is unknown. Definitive diagnosis can only occur at autopsy. It is a form of tauopathy.

As of 2018, there is no specific treatment. Rates of disease have been found to be about 30% among those with a history of multiple head injuries. Population rates, however, are unclear. Research into brain damage as a result of repeated head injuries began in the 1920s, at which time the condition was known as dementia pugilistica or “punch drunk syndrome”. Changing the rules in some sports has been discussed as a means of prevention.

Over the next few Mondays live at 9 p.m. Eastern at , The Dr. Vibe Show™ and The Good Men Project will hosting You, me & CTEYou, me & CTE is a series of conversations on and about Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Karen and Doug Zegel, are the mother and step-father of Patrick Risha, an All-Conference running back in high school and at Dartmouth College. Patrick suffered from CTE, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, before he took his own life at the age of 32. They founded the Patrick Risha CTE Awareness Foundation. Along with the informative website StopCTE.org and social media pages, the foundation works to provide parents of school age children (who have very susceptible brains) with information about the dangers of sports which involve head trauma. The foundation also works to open the avenues for brain donations for research and awareness. And the foundation is also striving to increase awareness of the prevalence of CTE in our society in ex-athletes, veterans, and victims of domestic abuse.

Recently, Karen and Doug were on our show. During our conversation, they talked about:

– Some of their backgrounds
– The loss of their thirty-two year old son, Patrick, to CTE
– Some memories of their son and life as a football family
– Dealing with Patrick’s health and emotional challenges
– Finding out about CTE after their son passed away and dealing with the fact that Patrick was misdiagnosed
– The medical profession not being up to speed when it comes to CTE
– Karen believing that no one should play football unless they know that they are going to ruin their brain and suffer brain trauma
– The growth of flag football and increased awareness in regards to CTE and brain trauma
– The initial reaction to their campaign and opponents to their campaign
– What role should government have in dealing with CTE
– Their calls to action
