Director Shaun Mathis talks about new documentary ‘Miles in the Life: The Story of a BMF Drug Trafficker’
August 13, 2020
Don’t get me wrong. There are worse places to grow up than the crack-era Brooklyn during the 1980’s epidemic. For example, there are hard-and-fast war zones where bombs explode regularly, and being rounded up and executed in plain sight are a daily occurrence. So — Brooklyn in the ’80s is not as graphic but the impact is just as devasting because it is a war and there are direct casualties and significant collateral damage.  ... read more »

SUCCESS ON THE WAY, ASK DR. JEANETTE: “The Promise Made. The Promise Kept”
August 6, 2020
When will you do what you said you were going to do? Sometimes promises are made and the person has no intent to keep their word. Who, above all others do you expect to keep their word and hold to their promise? For me, I say, the Lord first. But, I also want the persons who are closest to me to keep their promise.

Should you expect that this person is going to change miraculously and for the rest of that relationship? Very possibly “no.” Some would say “yes.” Promises are important statements. ... read more »
