IBNN NEWS will feature a series about Black Men in America which shows something is seriously wrong and the “invisible hand” is still at work in the United States to keep Black men from rising up. We will start with facts about Black Men, then turn to editorials about the issues and what the solutions could be. Dr. Donna Ford has the solutions, but still she and others are left outside of the process to solve the failure gap in America. (See her video below.)
