Possible!

What could be done 2 negate the 
unfair assessment & portrayal of us as 
black men?.... 

It's slanderous, slighted & incorrect. 
The real question is WHY?
Hmmm....(I can think of many reasons.)

Move forward, persevere, believe, have, faith, 
dream, be inspired & shatter the grossly 
false misconceptions that have the tendency 2 
follow us wherever we go.

Possible. from The Weddington Adventures. on Vimeo.
That's the very reason why it's been our 
mission 2 share a lil' somethin' positive 
on a regular in our little corner of the web.  

I would like 2 believe that somehow, someway 
we've been able 2 saturate the nonsense & show 
that men do love their boys.


No one other than ourselves could ever change the condition. 
It's our responsibility.

Just keep believing & keep your head up cause anything is POSSIBLE.

That's right!




Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

Suit & Tie.

A group of young men are letting the world know that they are far from the image of violent, uneducated and unkempt individuals that the media often makes them out to be. 
Dressed in suits, button-down shirts and bow ties while serving plenty of bravado, 34 juniors and seniors from Illinois’ Central High School recently created a short video called “Suit & Tie In The 217″ to combat the negative stereotypes they face regularly -- and we love every second of it! 


Set to Justin Timberlake's hit song "Suit & Tie," the fellas show off their superb style while the messages "we are not gangsters and thugs," "we are employees and volunteers," "we are scholars" and "we are athletes" appear across the screen. To be specific, they are Honor Roll students, poets, future collegiate athletes and National Honor Society members, just to name a few of their talents and accomplishments.


“The negative stories told daily in the media and in our culture about our young African-American men tend to ignore their successes and don’t tell the full story about how young Black men are becoming leaders within our community schools,”
