I need your help. I started putting together a list of the artists,
musicians, photographers, filmmakers, actors, who share our
vision for the "non profit".
The working rule that I used is that these are artists who, take
intellectual risks, can use our support and share our vision of
diverse representations of African Americans in entertainment.
(If you can help me clean that sentence up a bit, please do. It
seems a bit clunky).

Another question. I am thinking of building into the website, a location
where moms/dads can share solutions they have found, related to parenting
(dealing with the court, dealing with child's teachers, learning disabilities,
discipline, budgenting, dealing with the police).
If you are a parent and a reader, what would encourage/discourage
you from using such a forum?
