Smith began writing a program where he sent bits and pieces of weight loss tips to his social network friends, he didn’t realize the amount of attraction that he would receive. “I found out that people on the program were sending me in the results of how much they lost and how much exercise they did eventually.

Legendary Actor & Film Director Bill Duke (Exclusive Interview) Interviewed and written by Elder Lee M. Harris, Sr. The racial lines between who we are and who we want to be or become can sometimes confuse our way and process of thinking.

Much of this way of thinking began at a very young age and society is not trying to change this, but is trying to enhance it on every level.
Actor Bill Duke has given us, “Dark Girls,” a documentary which displays awareness of this problem with the intent to open the eyes and …
