This series MY BROTHER'S KEEPER was inspired by President Barack Obama and his MBK Alliance. The alliance holds programs for adolescents in need of mentorship. In this series, we interview Black individuals who have triumphed over great adversity growing up Black in America. These stories were captured a year and a half before the murder of George Floyd (May he Rest In Peace and condolences to his family and this Nation in pain) but each of the episodes of MY BROTHER'S KEEPER is meant to motivate, excite, intrigue, entertain, and educate our beautiful communities of color and beyond. The series is also meant to inspire people who watch to positively impact the lives of young Black individuals across this and other countries around the globe.
