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.

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.

Recently, Mr. Braswell was on our show talking about Black Dads Count.

During our conversation, Mr. Braswell talked about:

– Some background about Fathers Incorporated
– The story behind Black Dads Count
– How did the partnership with the United States Census Bureau came into being
– The importance of Black dads being part of the census
– Some reasons why Black fathers have not registered for the census and why it is important for them to register for the census

About the Black Dads Count Project …

According to a report on Men’s Fertility and Fatherhood (2014) by the U.S. Census there are 8.2 Million Black (only) fathers in the U.S. It is hard to fathom that ALL of these dads are absent, however that is what the societal narrative would lead you to believe.

​2020 marks the 55th Anniversary of the 1965 Moynihan Report. The controversial report argued that combating poverty required strengthening families in the United States—particularly through positively impacting Black men.

​The 2020 U.S. Census provides an opportunity to ensure that Black Dads and their families are represented properly in the count of U.S. citizens.

First, it was Gayle King’s interview with former WNBA star Lisa Leslie. During the interview, Ms. King asked Ms. Leslie, who was a good friend Kobe Bryant, about Bryant’s 2003 rape case. The pushback against Gayle King’s interview has been huge. Then Ms. King’s good friend, Oprah Winfey, appeared on the Today show and was very emotional saying that Ms. King “is not doing well” amid the backlash she has received over her recent interview with former WNBA star Lisa Leslie following the death of Kobe Bryant, in which she asked Leslie about Bryant’s 2003 rape case. Then The Snoop Dogg pushed back against Gayle King (and Oprah) for asking about the rape allegation against Kobe Bryant and defended several high-profile accused sexual predators including Bill Cosby. Then Bill Cosby thanked Snoop Dogg for calling his freedom. Now, Susan Rice, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who also served as national security adviser under former President Barack Obama took to Twitter Friday night saying to Snoop Dogg “Snoop, back the **** off. You come for @GayleKing, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won’t be pretty.” Then Snoop clarified his original statement and then apologized.

Dr. Vibe (Canada) and Kinte Fergerson (United States) hosted the conversation Kobe, Gail, Lisa, Oprah, Snoop, Bill And Susan.

During the conversation, the topics that were discussed were:

– Kinte shared about how much Kobe meant to Los Angeles and his reaction to Kobe’s death
– The effect Kobe Bryant’s death had an many Black men
– If Gayle King’s interview question about Kobe Bryant’s rape charge in 2003/2004 fair?
– If Gayle King and Oprah speak for Blacks
– If this issue shows that there is a Black class divide

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.

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.

Jill Jones is our special guest for this conversation. Ms. Jones is activist, feminist, former collaborator with Paisley Park.

In 2012, author IC Bailey found himself distraught over the effects that racism had upon his life. Reckoning with childhood abuse at the hands of a cruel child welfare system, he spent his first 16 years under a torrent of racial, sexual, physical, and mental abuse. Looking for relief from this abuse, he began having conversations with the White People around him, allowing him keen insight into the White People and their culture of Whiteness.

What he did not find were any significant works sharing the perspectives of White people about the blood they had spilled and the systems they created. There were few examples of common dialogue between the oppressor and the oppressed. Conversations with White People: Dialogues About Race is the culmination of that journey to see fruitful dialogues between Black and White People. It is a truly revolutionary work.

Recently, Mr. Bailey was on our show talking about Conversations with White People: Dialogues About Race.

During our conversation, Mr. Bailey talked about:

– Overcoming mental, racial, sexual, physical, emotional spiritual and academic abuse for the first sixteen years of his life
– How the book the Autobiography Of Malcolm X changed his life
– The next sixteen years of challenges
– The story behind Conversations With White People – Dialogues About Race and how Black women played a key role in getting the book released
– Some of his thoughts on racism and white supremacy
– How did he get content for the book
– The trends he noticed in white people’s opinions about from doing this book
– If the book has changed anyone’s thought process
– The impact that social media has had on racism and white supremacy
– Developing a team to make the book a reality
– His reaction to a section of the book that he reads
– Some reactions to the book
– Reparations for Black people vs. restorations for Black people
– Some best strategies for Blacks to combat racism
– His advice for Blacks and Whites when they are having conversations with each other about race and racism

Mark Sherman is an emeritus professor of psychology at SUNY, New Paltz. After receiving his BA from the University of Pennsylvania and his PhD from Harvard (where one of his teachers was B.F. Skinner), he went on to a distinguished teaching career at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He was twice nominated for the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. He took early retirement from teaching in 1995 to allow more time for his research and writing.

Sherman has taught, thought, researched and written about gender issues for more than 35 years.

With communications professor Adelaide Haas, Sherman did a major research project on men’s and women’s conversational styles in single-sex groups. The result was “Man to Man, Woman to Woman,” published in Psychology Today in 1984, and cited in Time magazine shortly after publication. This brief article — which discusses sources of problems in male-female communication — anticipated by six years the work of Deborah Tannen. It has been reprinted in at least two major texts for English composition classes. Sherman and Haas also published scholarly papers based on their research.

In the early 1990s, Sherman became aware that boys and young men were falling behind girls and young women in school, and since that time, he has read, talked, and written about this issue extensively, including in newspaper oped pieces. Since 2010, he has had a blog on the Psychology Today website, where he has often written on the problems facing young males. His posts on these issues get many views a day.

He has also written for the Good Men Project and is regular contributor to their discussions.

Sherman is also a member of the Coalition for establishment of a White House Council on Boys and Men; and he recently became a member of the Advisory Board to the group (which is headed by Warren Farrell, author of The Boy Crisis).

Among his many interests have been songwriting, singing, and humor. He has written regular humor column for his local paper for nearly 35 years, has produced two CDs of his songs, and has been doing a podcast, “The Kvetching Professor” for a year-and-a-half.

Most important, says Mark Sherman, is that he has been happily married for nearly 50 years, is the father of three grown sons and the grandfather of five young grandsons.

Recently, Mr. Sherman was live on our talking about Boys And Men Need Our Attention.

During our conversation, Mr. Sherman talked about:

– The younger Mark Sherman days growing up with a difficult childhood in Brooklyn, New York
– The effect his relationship with his father has had on him
– The reason he decided to pursue psycology and male-female communication
– Why Mark want to discuss this topic
– His reasons why he feels that boys are falling behind and why
– Comparing boy life when he was growing up to boy life today

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.

Michael J. Durkin is an author, speaker and dedicated maniac committed to the strengthening of Men, Women, Families and the Planet.

Self-Labeled as a “Contemporaneous Intuitive” Michael specializes in working with Live audiences and “downloads” answers, theology, wisdom and weaves his own personal experience into his teachings on Marriage, Business Success, Parenting, Fitness and overall Masculinity on request! He is passionate about keeping families together, making marriages joyful, giving children a place to grow and learn – and he is fan of putting the hot, seductive, alluring SEX back into Marriages where it belongs!

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.

Robert Leung is a Certified Life Coach, with 20 years experience successfully coaching men through life’s challenges and transitions. He is the creator of Heart of Man Coaching. Robert’s work with over a thousand men, from all walks of life, has centered around helping men access, understand and master the power of their emotions, without compromising their masculinity. He believes this is the key to our evolutionary success as men. Robert has researched and created a number of seminars and exercises to help men discover the tremendous opportunities that access to their emotions can provide. Opportunities for better health, peace of mind, self-worth, healing, confidence, success and of course, love.

Recently, I hosted a conversation with Robert in which Lee Rosen, Program Lead – Men And Masculinity, gave a living eulogy to Robert.

Here is Robert’s background on The Eulogy for Life Exercise

The word eulogy means “praise”. It comes from the Greek eu meaning “good” and logos meaning “speech”.

What makes this exercise unique is that it’s a eulogy for the living designed to improve the depth and understanding of our relationships with the people in our lives that matter to us..

The idea is simple. Don’t wait till someone’s dead to tell them how you really feel. Wouldn’t you like to hear what people will say about you when you’re gone? When you put yourself in the mindset that the person you are writing about is no longer alive it makes us extremely present, aware and vulnerable. Most of us are rarely in that state of mind even with the people closest to us. The thought of them being gone makes us conscious of all that they mean to us. That can be uncomfortable because we don’t want to think about them being gone. But what a gift to be able to hear how much you are loved and appreciated while you’re still here to enjoy it!

Hearing your eulogy is perhaps the most intimate affirmation one can experience. It deeply enriches both the giver and the receiver in ways nothing else can and thereby enriches their relationship. What could be more rewarding?

Why should we wait for illness or death to tell the people we love how we really feel? We all think we have time but all to often that is not up to us.

Having delivered eulogies for some very close friends and heard them read mine I can tell you there is nothing like it! I felt loved, respected, honored and validated in a way I have never felt before. It helped me understand the impact I had on people and their lives. It gave me a sense of my legacy and some ideas about things I could still change or improve. It made me realize the depth of my caring for these people and their importance in my life on a whole other level. Something I sometimes take for granted.

It was very powerful. Tears were shed, but they were tears of joy. There was also great humor and laughter. It was a little uncomfortable but the shared love and intimacy was unforgettable and well worth it. This was done with a team of men I have known for over 20 years. I didn’t think we could get any closer. But boy was I wrong. Imagine what this could do for friends and families willing to up their intimacy.

I think we should write eulogies for everyone in our lives that we love just to really know how much they mean to us. And then I think we should read them to those people so that they can know how much they mean to us.

I am certain The Eulogy for Life Exercise will make everyone feel closer. It will be a profound experience that enhances your relationships with the people who matter to you, and with yourself.

During the conversation:

– Robert gives some of his background which includes being a creative director in the advertising industry for twenty-five years, doing men’s work for over thirty years and being a life coach for over ten years
– He shares his passion about where emotions fit in with men and where it might go
– His change from the world of advertising to life coaching
– Reflections on his early coaching days of men
– Some changes in manhood and masculinity over the last ten years including men having to become stronger in being vulnerable
– The story behind the living eulogy concept and the reaction of men when he first shared the concept with them
– We find out how Robert and Lee met
– Lee gives a living eulogy for Robert
– When should men do the living eulogy exercise?
– “Don’t wait to say the things that matter. There are no guarantees.” Robert Leung

Diversity Votes aims to fill the gaps in understanding between Canada’s diverse communities, the media they listen to, read and watch, and how that can affect how they will cast their ballot in the upcoming federal election.

Canadians will be able to see demographic data at the riding level, focusing on majority-minority ridings. At the same time, news stories from these multicultural communities will discuss relevant issues about their communities and the federal election.

Combining demographic and socio-economic statistics from Canada’s majority-minority ridings, and an on-the-ground look at the ethnic media they engage with opens a door to appreciating the role of cross-cultural communication in politics. In 41 of Canada’s federal ridings visible minorities are the majority. In 93 more, they make up more than 20 percent of the voters. These are powerful communities who look and listen for their own voices in the media.

The Diversity Votes web site:

Educates – Provides an in-depth understanding of riding demographic, economic, social and political characteristics, and how these interact with electoral strategies.

Discusses – Creates wider awareness of how national and local issues are portrayed in community and regional ethnic media to increase accountability of ethnic-oriented media strategies.

Connects – Allows for more informed discussion regarding diverse Canadians’ voting patterns and issues and brings diverse voices into the national discourse.

Holds Accountable – Provides greater accountability for the messages that candidates and political parties are sending to different groups.

Andrew Griffith

Recently, Andrew Griffith of Diversity Votes was on our show.

Andrew Griffith, author and immigration expert and MIREMS Ltd. – Multicultural International Research and Ethnic Media Services – bring decades of experience in Canada’s multicultural spheres. Together, they illustrate the power and potential diverse Canadian voters have, with information that has traditionally been hidden behind linguistic and bureaucratic barriers.

During our conversation, Mr. Griffith talked about:

– How did he get involved in studying multiculturalism in Canada
– The story behind Diversity Votes
– The percent of Canada’s population that identify themselves of visible minorities
– Populism, Canada’s federal parties thoughts on it and Canadians thoughts on it
– The impact of the number of visible minority majority ridings in the upcoming federal election
– Canadians thoughts about immigration
– Ethnic groups in Canada not being party loyal
– Ethnic media coverage on the federal election so far and the important issues for ethnic groups in the election campaign
– The religious dress code issue and Quebec
– The role of the ethnic media in the upcoming federal election
– Some of the objectives of Diversity Votes
– What isn’t being covered by the ethnic media (eg. the situation in Hong Kong)
– Ethnic groups voting patterns
– What would he like Diversity Vote to achieve

I would like to know what thought about this conversation … Please click here to provide your comments and takes. Your feedback allows me to keep on improving the level of the shows that I provide.

Toronto’s Bay street has never looked better. Former Ralph Lauren and Harry Rosen stylist Earl Rich, has launched his own image consulting agency, catered to Bay Street’s male executives.

“I came to appreciate style from a very early age. Getting dressed for church on Sundays and other occasions, I became known for great style,” says Earl Rich, founder of Earl Rich Style. “I have a talent for understanding who you are and what message you wish to communicate to the world, then translating that through clothing.”

Rich’s extensive experience in dressing men for business during his time with Ralph Lauren and luxury retailer Harry Rosen, has shaped much of his style savvy. While his one-on-one executive styling work is very much a private affair, he’s in high demand with clients including some of Toronto’s premier executives from the legal, finance and technology sectors.

“I wish I had found Earl sooner than I did. Earl is very easy to work with and has a great eye for detail,” says Michael, a Toronto lawyer. “He gently encourages me to make the necessary changes that make an impact and I enjoy shopping experiences with him. I thought I dressed well before, but he has elevated my overall style and how I present myself.”

Rich intuits his clients’ personal style brand—from fit to form —nearly at a glance. “The way you dress is your visual business card. I’ve seen how great style can impact the professional and social areas of your life,” says Rich. “When your style is deliberate and well thought-out, you not only have a competitive edge, but you look the way you want to be perceived by the world.”

During our converastion, Earl talked about:

– Some of his background growing up in the United Kingdom including him recognizing the power of clothing at a young age, going to church and recognizing the “power of clothing”
– What brought him from the United Kingdom to Toronto
– How did he start working men’s retail clothing and how he got hired by Harry Rosen (Canadian luxury men’s wear store)
– The importance of fit, fabric, function, form
– “Clothing is like a costume.”
– His experience of having people who looked like him did not buy from him
– What he learned during his time at Harry Rosen and why did he decide to leave Harry Rosen and starting on his own
– How does he get clients
– “What message do you wish to communicate to the world?”
– The key in finding a garment that fits
– Some changes in men’s executive fashion
– The demographics of his client base and what is he doing to expand his client base
– He is not fashion, he is in style
– The research that he does about men’s executive clothing
– The benefits of a man hiring an executive style consultant like himself
– Some style tips including what makes a good tailor
– A concern that he has about the men’s retail fashion industry
– When should a man go through a clothing purge

J. Ross Victory (Ross) is an American Marketing professional, travel and adventure enthusiast, and author of the new memoir, Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son.

Ross is a millennial. He was born in the late 1980’s in the land of low-riders, taco trucks, and celebrities—Los Angeles, California. Los Angeles–also a place known for its income disparity and increasing homeless population. As the son of public servants—a missionary father and a law enforcement mother, inspiration through exploration, community, and service come natural to him. Ross serves as an Associate Board Member for Covenant House in Hollywood and spends his free time, traveling, writing and advocating for Meals on Wheels and Shower of Hope among other local, social organizations.

He spent his early years collecting pens, notepads and interviewing himself in a tape recorder. With an acute awareness for his young age, he was eager to point out hypocrisies and character inconsistencies in children and adults through English assignments. He delighted in provoking a reaction — any reaction from his English teachers, with writing that seemed to wink and smile.

He quickly progressed into writing lyrics. Over the next several years, he began to write and submit his songs and stories to contests for professional feedback, ultimately to find his direction, style, and voice. Writing permitted Ross the space to express his pain, his joy, and deepest thoughts about the world and humanity. Editors and songwriting judges have described Ross’ writing as ‘never lacking soul’—palpably passionate with the ability to bite or soothe–but always descriptive and transparent.

He incorporated this feedback to write non-fiction and fiction projects with depth and precision—stories of captivating, complex characters expressed in all their dimensions usually on a path to self-discovery and harmony. Like great music, great characters balance simplicity and complexity. He went on to teach English abroad in South Korea, which married his love for international travel and language.

Ross received his B.S. in Business Administration & Marketing Management from Cal State L.A.

Recently, Ross was live on our show talking about The Life Lessons That Sons Learn From Their Fathers Absence And/Or Presence.

During our conversation, Ross talked about:

– Life growing up in California including having both parents employed in law enforcement and not challenging their authority
– His passion at a younger age for collecting pens and interviewing himself
– What did he learn travelling to different countries while he was younger
– How he came up with the title of the book and why did he decide to write it
– His relationship with his grandmother which was challenging at times
– The lack of being emotionally connected with his parents when he was a child
– His relationship with his parents and how has it effected him
– Not telling his father about writing the book
– The feeling of seeing his book finished
– His mother’s thoughts about the book
– Conversations with others about father son relationships
– Questions he would like to ask his dad if his dad were still alive and what would his dad think about the book
– What part of his father lives in him
– Messages for millennial men, fathers of young men when it comes to father son relationships
– “Be the father you wish you had to your son.”
– What did writing the book tell him about something that he did not know about himself

Coach Michael Taylor is an entrepreneur, author (7 books), motivational speaker and radio show host who has dedicated his life to empowering men and women to reach their full potential. He knows first hand how to overcome adversity and build a rewarding and fulfilling life and he is sharing his knowledge and wisdom with others to support them in creating the life of their dreams.

He is no stranger to adversity and challenges. He was born in the inner city projects of Corpus Christi Texas to a single mother with six children. Although he dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, his commitment to living an extraordinary life supported him in defying the odds.

With persistence, patience and perseverance he was able to climb the corporate ladder of success and become a very successful mid-level manager of a multi-million dollar building supply center at the tender young age of 21. After approximately eight years, he was then faced with another set of challenges as he experienced the pain and humiliation of divorce, bankruptcy and foreclosure and found himself contemplating suicide.

Bankrupt and alone, he committed to rebuilding his life which propelled him to begin a 25 year inner journey of personal transformation which resulted in him discovering his true self and his passions for living. As a result, he is now happily married (17 years) and living his dream of living an extraordinary life while being in service to others. Through his books, lectures and radio program he now coaches others on how to become genuinely happy with their lives and live the lives they were born to live.

Recently, Coach Michael was on our show talking about A New Conversation Can Lead To A New Culture Of Manhood.

During the conversation, Coach Michael talked about:

– Some of his background and how his mother inspired him
– When and why did he decide to become a full fledged entrepreneur and some of his entrepreneurial journey
– Overcoming the darkest period of his life which included getting divorced, bankrupt and living out of a car for two years
– Why did he write the book
– Some of the five illusions of manhood
– The five stages of evolution of men
– The need for men to be emotional and connected
– If men are ready to be authentic
– “Masculinity in itself is not toxic.”
– An authentic man goes to his heart
– The illusion that men need to use sexual conquest as a gauge for manhood
– That many men cannot connect to joy
– The most important resource that a man can have is a community of men
– The three most difficult words for men to say “I need help”
– Men need to stop competing and start connecting
– That it is time for men to shift the paradigm by getting the courage to say that I need help and be willing to seek out that help and doing this makes men stronger

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.

On the April 24, 2019 edition of Staggers State Of Things, Ms. Staggers talked about:

– 45 obstructing justice
– #MorningJoe
– The U.S. census and citizenship question
– The She The People conference where eight 2020 Democratic candidates talked to Black women
– Joe Biden getting ready to announce that he will be seeking the United States Democratic Party nomination for President
