The Dr. Vibe Show

Grace JerkFest was presented by TD Ready Commitment and went virtual this year due to COVID-19. The food, music and fun times was live streamed on www.jerkfestival.ca on August 8th and August 9th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. each night. There was no cost, everyone was invited and saw jerk cooking demonstrations, Canadian dancers, singers, steelpan artists as well as the international headliners: Beenie Man, Jah Cure, Lila Ike and Alison Hinds.

We had the opportunity to speak with Jah Cure before this year’s Grace JerkFest.

You may know him as Jah Cure. Perhaps you know him by his given name, Siccaturie Alcock. But as the saying goes, “What’s in a name?” Most importantly, you must know his message. His music is at once his spirit, his all-consuming passion, and his personal declaration of a belief in a universal consciousness based on love and positivity.

Born in Hanover, Jamaica on October 11th, 1978, the global force that is Jah Cure has been a long time in the making. From as little as three years old, this child of slight build would captivate those around him with his innate musical virtuosity. As he and his love for the art grew, the young man whose voice would make any songbird green with envy would sneak out of his bedroom window late at night to visit local dancehalls and stage shows. It was here that he became immersed in the stylings of the undisputed greats: Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffith, Garnett Silk, Yami Bolo, Jacob Miller and Black Uhuru. A young Siccaturie knew that he would dedicate himself to achieving membership of this superlative group.

Initially using the name ‘Little Melody’, Siccaturie’s voice started to leave an indelible impression in the streets and he soon became the talk of Jamaica. At the age of fifteen, he moved to Kingston. The name Jah Cure was bestowed upon him by the world-renowned Capleton and the David House Crew. This was primarily due to the vast amount of herb he smoked in the quest for spiritual enlightenment – a daily custom of his Rastafarian religion and commitment to natural living. Using the plants of the land for medicinal purposes, the singer looked young and healthy. He was ‘well-preserved’ or ‘cured’. Jamaican music icon, Beres Hammond, subsequently took Cure under his wing and became his mentor and producer.

However, Cure’s journey would be unexpectedly interrupted when in 1998 he was stopped and arrested late one night in Montego Bay. He was charged with four crimes, all of which he vehemently denies to this day. A non-jury trial was convened (one in which a single judge decides both questions of law and fact) and unfortunately, despite a total lack of visual confirmation of his involvement in said crimes, Cure was given a 15 year sentence.Not letting this setback disrupt his dream, Cure recorded and released many #1 singles from jail. The songs “Jamaica” and “Longing For” were both local and global successes. Cure’s first album, FREE JAH’S CURE, was recorded and released in 2001. On this project, Cure conveys his gratitude for life. He believes his incarceration was Jah’s way of teaching him humility, kindness, forgiveness and love for his fellow man. Consequently, he has relinquished any resentment for those who judged him unjustly. In 2003, Beres Hammond produced Cure’s second album, GHETTO LIFE, which featured the acclaimed single Divide and Rule.

On his first day of freedom, Cure publicly stated that his only remaining life goal would be to use his music as a means of spreading love, peace and healing. Since 2007, Jah Cure has topped the charts with several # 1 singles – Call on Me, featuring Phyllisia, followed by You’ll Never Find, and Unconditional Love, which quickly became the #1 reggae single worldwide. The song Like I See It, featuring Rick Ross, and the remix with dancehall king Mavado, undeniably rocked the international reggae scene. Released in 2013, the album WORLD CRY featured collaborations with the talents of Tupac, Keri Hilson, Mavado, MDMA, Rick Ross, Jazmine Sullivan, Shyne and several others. It can confidently be described as an auditory explosion that crossed and entwined the genres of reggae, hip hop, R&B, Latin and pop.

During our conversation, Jah Cure talked about:

– Some of his background including growing up in jungle in Jamaica
– The influence his grandmother has had on his life
– How music found him and singing the song that won his first singing competition when he was a young boy
– His first real music gig
– Moving to Kingston, Jamaica changing his life
– Some of reggae’s legends including Capelton, Beres Hammond, Buju Banton influencing his life
– Making his time in prison into a positive experience including recording music while he was in prison
– Joe Bogdanovich’s positive impact on his career
– His memories on the day he was released from prison
– Some of the musical moments that he is most proud of
– What does being a father mean to him
– Performing at Grace Jerk Fest
– How is he handling 2020

How She Hustles, with proud sponsors CIBC and exclusive media partner, Rogers Sports & Media, is excited to produce the second annual Startup & Slay Digital Series featuring Canada’s diverse women entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs profiled in this series will share inspiring stories about starting, sustaining and scaling their small businesses, despite uncertain economic times.

The entrepreneurs will be featured in weekly video chats and publicity campaign during October’s Small Business Month 2020. We welcome applications from non-binary entrepreneurs while we work on a more gender inclusive framework for How She Hustles.

The application process is underway to select Canadian women entrepreneurs who are soaring in this year of uncertainty. “These are turbulent times with both the COVID-19 pandemic and the acknowledgement of the toll racism has taken on communities of colour – particularly in the areas of business and simply trying to make a living,” said Emily Mills, founder of How She Hustles/Startup & Slay. “With this digital series we are hoping to change how we perceive entrepreneurs in this country and broaden that definition so more people can see themselves reflected.”

The national call out is to self-identified women entrepreneurs from diverse and underrepresented communities to share their stories of starting and scaling a small business in Canada. How She Hustles welcomes applications from non-binary entrepreneurs while working on a more gender inclusive framework.

Many businesses have had to pivot and change their game-plan to adjust to the current economic climate, social distancing rules and doing business virtually. We want to hear how women-led businesses have been able to keep afloat and, in some cases, increase their productivity during the pandemic. The selected entrepreneurs will be featured in weekly live streamed video chats during October’s Small Business Month. Applicants have until July 31, 2020 to share their story here.

Last year, Startup & Slay evolved into a national digital video series. Out of more than 100 applicants from five difference provinces and 30 different communities, six Canadian businesses were selected to share their journey on camera. They were also provided opportunities to share their stories with media outlets and at panel and networking events in Toronto during Small Business Week.

Desmond Williams is a career teacher, principal, author and thought leader. He is driven to help all children live their dreams. Desmond had two dreams growing up: He wanted to design Transformers and be a sitcom writer. After having many teachers tell him those dreams were silly, he decided he wanted to teach because he knew children deserved better. He has spent his entire professional career working with youth serving as a special educator, classroom teacher, assistant principal and principal. His educational philosophy is simply that education should be used for the process of building and maintaining a nation.

He received his Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Howard University in Washington, DC. He later received his master’s degree in Education and Human Development from George Washington University. He started his teaching career in DCPS as a special educator. He subsequently moved through the ranks and became a special education coordinator because of his business acumen and understanding of children with special needs. Soon afterwards Mr. Williams, worked in the Office of Special Education for DC Public Schools.

After leaving DCPS’s Office of Special Education, he ventured into the world of school-based administration. His expertise includes, student engagement, restorative justice, relationship building with students, and family engagement. Desmond has spoken at multiple conferences across the country offering his expertise and insight in engaging inner-city students. He has worked with several independent schools and school districts. His focus is on educating boys of color. “They are the most marginalized and are in need of the most help. “Teachers that serve them, tend to be the teachers that are in need of the most support.” His other passions include teacher development, leadership development, special education and engaging boys of color in learning. In 2015, he launched the #SOBTC Twitter chat that united teachers, educators, parents and practitioners from across the country to discuss issues related to educating boys of color. #SOBTC, Send Our Boys To College started because he wanted those invested in the growth of Black boys to have a platform to discuss challenges and celebrate successes.

Desmond served six years at an all-boys school in Washington DC, teaching four years and serving as principal for two more years. His first year as an administrator reading scores soared to 64% proficient. In his second year, and upon his departure, The Bishop Walker School boasted reading scores of 83% proficiency. After leaving BWS, Desmond founded and launched Nylinka School Solutions. One of Desmond’s big goals was to help other educators increase the level of engagement and investment of boys of color. Mr. Williams does this by leveraging his experience and expertise to aid schools and school districts. The goal of Nylinka School Solutions is to help children achieve their dreams one solution at a time. In all, Desmond has spent nine years as a teacher and seven as an administrator. However, his greatest satisfaction is seeing kids maintain their enthusiasm for leaving their mark on the world. He has recently ventured into the world of writing. His first book The Burning House: Educating Black Boys in Modern America was released in February of 2020 and debuted as a #1 New Release. In the fall of 2020, Desmond will return to Howard University to pursue his PhD in Educational Psychology.

Recently, Mr. Williams was a guest on Black Men Talking™ … A Digital Journey About The Lives Of Black Men ….

During our conversation, Mr. Williams talked about:

– Some of his story including growing up in Detroit, how attending the Million Man March on October 16, 1995 in Washington changed his life
– What he thanks his parents for
– Deciding to go to Howard University and his experience attending there
– Making teaching his journey and graduating from his masters program with zero debt
– Some of his teaching journey
– Inspiring young Black men to become teachers
– The impact that white supremacy has on Black students
– Black people being at war
– Becoming an educator in the system school

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.

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

On the July, 11, 2020, the subjects that ladies talked about were:

– 45 commutes Roger Stone’s prison sentence
– In America, Covid cases and deaths going up and the future of opening of schools
– American Supreme Court allows NY access to 45’s taxes, blocks House
– According to the new guidelines issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the government will stop issuing visas for students planning to pursue online-only courses starting in September, while those already in the U.S. will need to transfer to institutions that still conduct in-person classes or leave the country altogether

Candies Kotchapaw is a community builder and networker, holding Master and Bachelor degrees in Social Work from York University and a diploma in Child and Youth Work from George Brown College. While completing the Master program, Candies encountered systemic conditions that tried to prevent her from successfully completing the program. These forces included feelings of isolation in education, financial blocks, lack of mentorship and a sense that striving for greater was pointless. Candies found support in one faculty member who invested time and effort in developing her Major Research Project entitled, ‘The Politics of Social Work: Do Racialized Social Workers belong in the Practice Space of Public Policy Development?’

From this Major Research Paper, in 2016 Candies was invited to present her findings at graduate student conferences at York University at the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, The Global Labour Research Centre and the School of Social Work’s graduate symposium. Further, Candies was a panel presenter in Seattle, Washington at the Institute for Research on Labour and Employment (IRLE). As the only black female presenter at this conference, Candies began to interrogate how to make spaces of influence in education and the broader society more accessible for the black community. It was here that the idea of creating a program that combined mentorship with capacity building began to develop. Following completion of the Master of Social Work program, Candies founded the project called Developing Young Leaders of Tomorrow, Today (DYLOTT).

This program serves the purpose of connecting participants of the program with strong mentors within the black community and non-racialized allies who have been successful at navigating systemic structures and creating access to available opportunities for marginalized people. As DYLOTT continues to evolve into a unique leadership skills development program, Candies continues to inform the program through her research into precarious work and its effects specifically on the black community. Candies has travelled to the United Kingdom, Latvia and South Korea to present her findings on precarious work to further structure DYLOTT to open career paths for the black community that has been otherwise inaccessible.

Candies is always willing to talk about her experiences and the necessity of supporting a unique program such as DYLOTT.

Recently, Ms. Kotchapaw was on our show.

During our conversation, Ms. Kotchapaw talked about:

– Some her background including why she decided to pursue social work as her passion
– The importance of her family in her journey
– The qualities of her mother that she has in her
– Some of her professional accomplishments including achieving her MSW and the some of the challenges that Black Canadians face with the social service system
– The story behind DYLOTT
– The importance Senator Wanda Bernard has had on her journey
– Some DYLOTT successes
– The effect that Covid19 is having on Black Toronto youth
– Ter finding out that she is resilient and future vision
– Some of her recent awards

The Jahmeyka Project is a non-profit organization run by licensed social workers and funded solely by donations, seeking to directly benefit social services and communities in Jamaica.

The Jahmeyka Project origins began twenty years ago when Dr. Leslie Yaffa went to Jamaica as a Master’s of Social Work student. She became a college professor and created a graduate-level course that offered students an international social work experience focused on community engagement in Jamaica. After 5 years of visiting multiple agencies, providing community service to selected agencies, and experiencing the Jamaican social service culture, it was clear to Dr. Yaffa that the work, partnerships and connections to the communities had to go beyond the classroom.

Today, the Jahmeyka Project utilizes a service-learning and educational approach to integrate with our partnerships in Jamaica. We build on critical and reflective thinking, community service, partnership responsibility and inclusion. Through knowledge mobilization and partnerships, we are continuing to build a non-profit that will be open to all helping professions in future years who want to engage in professional trainings, workshops, field placements (into Jamaican organizations), outreach and research in Jamaica.

Beyond our work on the ground, The Jahmeyka Project supports organizations in the Kingston, Jamaica area who have identified needs in their communities for goods such as school supplies and hygiene products..

Dr. Paul Miller is the Principal and CEO of Green Tech High Charter School, a highly successful school for boys in Albany, NY. An expert in urban education, Dr. Miller has specialized in school reform and redesign for over 20 years, counseling school officials and administrators on effective strategies to increase performance among black males and establish a culture of success. He has committed his life to educating and empowering low-income urban youth with the intention to facilitate change and undo the trend of academic underachievement that often plagues young black men from the inner city. The passion did not begin with his professional career, but was implanted in him as a youth growing up in the projects of Rochester, NY. Similar to many of his students, Dr. Miller understands the challenges that often knock young minority men off-course and hinder their ability to reach their full potential. However, he teaches students not to be victims, but to use adversity as fuel to succeed and rise above their circumstances.

Since taking over Green Tech in 2012, Dr. Miller has turned the school into one of the best in New York State. Under his leadership, graduation rates have soared – reaching an impressive 95% with a 100% college acceptance rate for graduates. In addition, students have earned over $25 million in scholarships, compared to only $200,000 before he arrived. Dr. Miller has been recognized by the City of Albany as a Man of Valor, and as one of the top 40 Under 40 African American Leaders by the City of Rochester, among many other accomplishments. He is often invited to speak to students and to offer strategic counsel to school leaders on improving school systems and more effectively engaging students. Dr. Miller has emerged as one of the top and most highly sought after urban education leaders in the nation.

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.

Gina Figueroa is a Singer-Songwriter/Musician/Producer/Director/Dancer/Activist. She is a featured artist and Grammy award winning co-writer of D’angelo and The Vanguard’s 2016 Best R&B song, Really Love as Gina Figueroa.

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.

He brings 29 years of collective work experience managing and leading fatherhood and community programs. Additionally, he serves as the National Director of the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearing House (NRFC) directing and guiding the strategic activities of the NRFC.

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
– The barbershop being one of the hubs for Black men
– How has his experience has helped with launching Black Dads Count
– The importance of him and Fathers Incorporated staying focused on Black fathers

– A successful father being successful listener
– This initiative bringing new perspectives to him
– His big dream for Black Dads Count

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.

Over the last two-and-a-half years, a medical surgeon, a police officer, a former college professor, a life coach, a professional athlete, a child and youth worker, a community support worker and several entrepreneurs from Toronto have quietly been working on a joint venture.

This informative book reveals stories and insights from many different perspectives, mostly from the authors personal anecdotes. Provided are methods and mindsets that can be used to overcome or better yet circumvent many dead-end decisions. The book is aimed at boys and men but with such valuable lessons from various walks of life, there is something in it for everyone!

In life, we often face many challenges and hardships. From relationship mistakes, identity issues, not fitting society’s mold of who they believe we should be, or simply not knowing what our next step is in life.

On some days, it feels as if everything is absolutely great! Other days it appears we’ve stumbled and fallen and no matter how much we try, it is so difficult to get back up.

Please know that while you fail, while you stumble, while you are trying to navigate through what’s happening in your life, understand that you are not alone in your journey! In this book, you will read open and honest stories about the everyday man, who has had his share of struggles but found his way to become the best version of himself that he could ever be.

This book is not about 10 men who fell down along their journey of life. This book is about 10 individuals who after falling, through resiliency, tenacity and discipline, found it within themselves to stand back up!

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
