The Albert Wilson Foundation, founded by Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson to enrich the lives of children in foster care, and HANDY, Inc., the award-winning nonprofit which stands for Helping Abused Neglected Disadvantaged Youth will be showcasing the second part of their Unspoken documentary series, titled Discovering Black: The Day you Became a Color and the Trauma After on July 23 via Facebook at 6 p.m.
The Unspoken series aims to shed light on issues affecting and impacting the day-to-day lives of Black Americans through candid, open, and sometimes difficult to hear dialogue. Each week the presenting partners will host prominent business and community leaders as panel speakers who have relevant and relatable experience to discuss that week’s topic. Panel speakers will be asked a series of difficult questions with the goal of shedding light and bringing awareness to the not so obvious inequalities and injustices Black Americans face through work, community, individuals and society at large.
This week’s conversation will center around what ‘Becoming a Color’ means, the trauma associated with being Black and disparities in health care.
This week’s panelists and prominent business leaders include: Phillip Merrin, CEO and Founder of Blitz Inc.; Kirk Brown, CEO of HANDY; Jason Jenkins, Senior Vice President, Communications and Community Affairs for the Miami Dolphins; Adamma DuCille, Assistant Director of Training & Capacity Building, Children Services Council of Broward County; and Charmaine Borda, Clinical Director, The Blue Couch, Inc. The panel will be moderated by Jamaal May, Executive Director of The Albert Wilson Foundation.
