“Stop Acting Like A Girl”: Black Men, Mental Health & Sexuality Featuring Kenny Jones
1 day ago
Why do we tell our black boys to stop crying or acting like a girl? It diminishes their voice and forces them hold everything inside. It is time we allow our black boys and men to cry and express their thoughts and feelings.
In this episode, Kea speaks with book coach and motivational speaker Kenny Jones. Kenny shares his story with coming out as a gay black man, battling depression and being overweight.
Author of the Amazon International Best Selling book Comeback Season; the Untapped Art of Mastering Your Resilience, Kenny empowers entrepreneurs, dreamers and doers, to embrace their personal stories as the core of their success; no matter how difficult or unpopular. He speaks candidly about how to turn pain into purpose while healing from revealing. Now an entrepreneur and life enthusiast, his approach is realistic and deeply personal has positioned numerous authors, entrepreneurs, and humans to own their stories.
During the mind, body and soulness segment, Kea discusses the benefits of mediation to improve your mental health.

Amazing advice! Great episode!
This episode really hit home to me. I've never been a person who set New Year resolutions or anything like that. Kea focused on the necessity of making it a monthly, not yearly solution to focus on our mental health and wellness. I am working on making my goal now. The first is to set 30 minutes aside a day to focus on my dream and to write it down. I will also make sure that I get a monthly massage and facial. Something that I never do unless it's gifted. I will make myself a priority. Kea, thank you for this episode and for focusing on our community!
