Footprints in the Concrete Screening
Footprints in the Concrete is a musical depiction of how a family, church, college and community came together to save a fatherless youth, trapped in a cycle of hopelessness. Currently the President of HOPE Multimedia Company, Domingo Guyton often reverts back to his childhood as a struggle; attempting to survive in the mixed pot of drugs, misogyny and violence that Boston, MA had delved out in the late 1980s. Born to a single mother on welfare, Guyton went through a series of events that spun his life out of control by the age of 15. Continuously searching for his father for over 30 years, he finally found him on Facebook. Guyton adds that many of his past issues were due to not having a father in his home, but after connecting to his heavenly Father, the latter years of his life were rewarding and he has achieved great success overall. Interviews are with Grammy award winning Feliciano Butch Tavares, Dr. Ulric Johnson from Teens Against Gang Violence and host of friends and family members who recall the turbulent times and recall the influential part that music, hope and faith in God had on turning Guytons life around.

*Akoma* Circle of Giving
Teresa Younger, President and CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women, challenged us to "Wake up the Devil, and let him know that together, men and women are fighting for a better future." We believe our ancestors uttered similar words long ago and it is by their faith and endurance that Ms. Younger and many others are able to boldly declare a better future for Black people today. As we prepare for the journey ahead, we know the importance of strengthening the ties that bind us together so that we can safely arrive into the future more unified than ever before. The Ms. Foundation for Women knows this too and it's why they have generously given us a matching gift of $10,000 to form the Akoma Circle of Giving for Black women. It is our hope that this Circle will allow us to forge a viable pathway forward. But we can't do it without you. Please join us at our next monthly meeting. If you're not able to make this meeting, there will be other opportunities to participate in the Circle each fourth Sunday of the month. Thank you very much, and we look forward to seeing you soon! *Akoma is an Adinkra (Ghanain) symbol that looks exactly like a heart.It represents patience, goodwill, faithfulness, endurance and tolerance.
