The Best Advice I Ever Got | Yalanda P Lattimore DryerBuzz

Best advice I ever received was never meant for me.  Not sure if Ida B Well, John H Johnson, or Whoopi  had/have me in mind when they spoke/speak respectively.  I hang onto their ever word.  The courage of Wells, leadership of Johnson, and freedom of Whoopi is what I hope to achieve. From Wells, I learned there is great power in lending our voices to issues. We can change the world with a headline.

Brother Buzz! Watch Save My Son on TV One | Tales of Families Struggling to Save Their Sons

Let me just say first and foremost that in my passion for being the storyteller for advocates and activists, I am completely dumbfounded as to why more men are not involved in the lives of young Black boys.  I will say, contrary to popular belief, when I need a headline about someone doing the work with our young men, the stories are there for me to come by, but few and far between.  Good men do good things.  However, their stories are not often told.
