I'm interested in getting some scholarships. So I can return to college. A respected friend told me to check out "Saving Our Black Boys". And I'm so glad I did. Going to The LEAP Program at Oakwood University is no longer a dream. In my eyes it has become a reality! Because of the information given me through this website. If you or someone you know are in need of scholarships. Click on "Services for you" on the Home Page. Then scroll down to Scholarships. A consultation will help get you started toward your higher education goals. There are many available scholarships. So, why not tap into this marvelous resource?

Blessings My Sister, God never makes a mistake as I know Mel's homegoing brought so many people together for the Lord's divine purposes. So I solicit your prayers for me as I commit to implementing a mentoring program (much of what Mel wanted to do) for young people who are out of school or in transition. I am praying for you and the work the Lord has given your hands to do, This is a divine connection in which God will receive all the glory. jj ting

Thank you for your radio show and life long work to educate parents. I just had the privilege to listen to your child development workshop, it was wonderful. I heard your show years ago, and I loved your affirmation, "There's genius in our genes we come from kings and queens, from the motherland Africa!" I taught it to my children right away. Since then I have added a verse and taught more children in my community these uplifting words. The verse I added, "Jesus made my genes, He is the king of kings, the creator of Everything!" God bless you and your life changing work.

Thank you for this empowering message to stir all of us to action to stop the madness and send a strong and and lasting message that Black Lives Matter! In addition to signing the petition, I'm going to focus more on local elections. May God bless your ministry and may we all be intentiinally aggressive and intentional in our actions to Save Our Black Boys.

For the first time, I was able to listen to the June 23rd broadcast, because the piano lessons that were normally scheduled for the same time of the broadcast were postponed. I really enjoyed what I heard, and will be incorporating the method/techniques in the music instructional service.

Thank you for what you are doing for young black males. Another great source and book of interest might be "Daddy! ...Can YOU Hear Me???" by Patrice Lee. See her books at www.Leep4Joy.com

I enjoyed learning about how music impacts learning. Music has, for several years, been considered unimportant. However, this confirms that music is essential for learning and why. Thank you.

I think you guys are doing great work.Its always good to know that people are continuing to fight for these young brothers. By the way have you read the book titled As a Young Man Thinketh. It is very motivational book for African American Middle School Boys. Its a great book that all black boys should read. I promise you will agree. The author is Matt Snipes, a Principal in Youngstown, Ohio. the book is published by HawfBooks.com
