CONTACT: 

R. Devin Beverly, Ph.D.

           RICHMOND, VA (USA) – 20 January 2016 --     How does racism, lack of real life options, poverty, lack of equal access to physical and mental health resources and support services, unemployment, and mass incarceration impact on the emotional health of Men and Boys of Color?   Are the unique challenges that Men and Boys of Color face robbing them of their emotional freedom?  Do Men and Boys of Color need a safe haven to freely express their wide range of emotions – particularly, the natural reaction to emotional and physical distress?   R. Devin Beverly, Ph.D., health and forensic psychologist and Men’s Issues Thought Leader, will weigh in on these and other questions as a featured speaker at the “Men And Boys Of Color Global Community Emotional Health” Teleconference scheduled for Sunday, 24 January 2016 at 10:00 A.M. (USA – New York Time) and 3:00 P.M. (USA – New York Time).   The teleconference call dial-in number is  712-775-7031 and the access code is: 803 828.  


            Dr. Beverly is moving the African American community to rethink how it is raising its Sons, healing their deep emotional wounds, and dissipating their anger through a groundbreaking DVD entitled, “Angry Black Males:  The Misunderstood Population”.  At the same time, Dr. Beverly is working to move the world to rethink how it can improve the manner in which it can positively interact with Men and Boys of Color and to understand why it is necessary.   Dr. Beverly’s work which was prominently featured in the Spring  2014 issue of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD®, an international quarterly Fatherhood and Men’s Issues Journal, has been heralded as one of the key “pieces of the puzzle” to keeping not just African American boys and young adolescent males – but all of our Sons --  out of the “school-to-prison pipeline”.  A mental and behavioral health professional whose professional services encompasses, among other things, clinical leadership, consultation, organizational analysis, and interagency relations, Dr. Beverly deals with violence, alcoholism and other forms of chemical dependence, re-entry and other correctional programming, forensic psychology, and anti-social conduct.


        The “Men And Boys Of Color Global Community Emotional Health” Teleconference is being convened in observance of “January 2016: Men And Boys Emotional Freedom Month” which is the brainchild of the USA International Men’s Day Team in response to the alarmingly rising suicide rates for Men and Boys and in alignment with the theme for 2016 International Men’s Day  -- “Talk About Male Suicide”..   “January 2016:  Men And Boys Emotional Freedom Month” calls attention to, among other things, the need for the creation of safe havens for Men and Boys to freely express their wide range of emotions  and greater and equal access to mental health resources and support for services for our sons, fathers, husbands, grandfathers, great grandfathers, uncles, fiancées, brothers, cousins, nephews, co-workers, and neighbors.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
