My Bed for the night .... these youngins need love and positive models to share information and advise with them . I am honored to be a part of this village. The last thing I want is for them to graduate to the FEDS . #Slugg #DontGetTaken

@chazfrenchmusic and I are speaking for the 2.7 million children in this country with an incarcerated parent , the 5 million children that have at some point had an incarcerated parent . We live in the age of Mass Incarceration and Mommy and Daddy go to prison .
Our schools, faith based institutions, policy makers, and communities have to do more to ensure that these children and their families are supported and resourced.

This pic is of My Father and Dominic "Chip" Henry at The United States Penitentiary in Lompoc,California circa 1992 .
Tomorrow I will visit The Federal Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Md for the launch of Young Men Incorporated , a program started by Mr.Henry doing his 30 year bid in prison. Since his release he has collaborated with inmates like my Father to teach younger inmates strategies and principles for successful reentry . My Father is a very private man , not really social . Over the years he has slowly come out of his shell to serve and help others . For him to be the Vice Chair of YMI at Cumberland is an amazing feat . I am so proud of him , I am so excited to see his presentation tomorrow .

Sometime I look out my front window at this very spot and reflect on this very Moment in April of 1989 .... my father would be arrested a couple days after this picture was taken, that smile you see on my face would be altered for a long time .

October is "Children With Incarcerated Parent's Month" ... children (particularly black children) are going through incredible trauma as it relates to parental incarceration. It is my hope that Our Schools, Churches , and Communities would do more to support these children and their families . It is essential to their lives and trajectory. #Slugg #TBT #Hanover #DontGetTaken #Mentoring #BehavioralHealth #LetHelpIn

Like I didn't study the game to the letter,and understand that Im not doing it the same, man im doing it better , like I aint make that clearer this year - @champagnepapi

Go watch the @shakasenghor interview and get a real perspective on Mass Incarceration and the Collateral Damage it has caused to families and communities .... I don't normally feel these dudes that get on these platforms , but homes is solid .... cop his book "Writing My Wrongs" and watch "Released" on Own .

Thank You to @cthagod , @angelayee , and @djenvy for having the brother on to discuss this very important topic .

From the first time I spoke publicly over 15 years ago to now the message has remained :
โ€œOnce the crowd settled and James ( @jb_plus_two ) made his remarks, it was my turn to speak. Nervously, I opened my mouth and, to my surprise, didnโ€™t sound that bad. I encouraged the fathers to be active participants in their sonsโ€™ lives. I expressed to them that I had a better relationship with my father who was doing life in prison than many men from our communities had with their sons in freedom. Knowing that a big part of the problem with absent fathers in the hood was due to mass incarceration, I asked them not to take chances with their freedom. โ€œDonโ€™t get taken. Your sons and daughters need you.โ€ Excerpt From: Tony Lewis Jr With K.L. Reeves. โ€œSlugg A Boy's Life in the Age of Mass Incarceration.โ€ Tony Lewis Jr With K.L. Reeves , 2015. iBooks.

This Sister asked me how can she help certain populations when she doesn't share their story ... I explained that having a shared story helps but it can also create too much familiarity if that commonality isn't handled appropriately . I let her know that she absolutely could help , the most essential things are compassion, consistency, and having a genuine respect for those that you are serving and or assisting . I told her to utilize people like me to connect the dots .
Its equally about where they are as it is about where we are trying to get them to go , therefore you need both perspectives , if we work in tandem we can gain traction.

My message, service, advocacy , and activism has been for Man, Woman , and Child .... people have told me in the past that I must choose one group to focus on , I told them I already have ... I am focusing on The Family #Slugg #DontGetTaken #MassIncarceration #CollateralDamage
