It's something about these Phenomenal, Die-Hard Morgan State University Grads! In this episode, we uncover what really happens in the Men's Den? I'm chatting with four of my super-amazing men friends, sharing laughs and we are chatting everything from affirming our children and the power of affirming our tribe to advice for single mothers. You may hear a crackle in my voice that sounds like a tear rolling down my eyes, but stick with it - I did hahah. We tackle the question of "who is on the Board of Directors of your life", how to hold others accountable, shedding people from your life and some of the funniest memories between friends, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. Grab your mocktail or cocktail and join us at the kitchen table to celebrate my 1 year podcast anniversary with my Morgan State University family! Please join me in welcoming Dr. Justin Black, Lamar Robinson, Allan Boomer & Mervin Bourne. Let's have a bit of fun!

The title of today's episode is a quote pulled from the poem, Invictus, by William Earnest Henley, written in 1875, where, after a leg amputation and many surgery interventions on the other, he wrote this powerful piece on navigating adversity and coming out on the other side, despite the darkness that you may or may not experience within your circumstance.
