In the second part of this two part series looking at the role of the Church of England in Barbados, Professor Robert Beckford explores the Christian understanding of reparations. Where does the idea come from in Scripture? Has the Anglican church been slow to address the slave trade as a focus of reparatory justice? Robert speaks to Christians in Barbados who say reparations from the Church are now both justified and necessary. But their perspective is only one side of the story. In England, representatives from the Church of England and the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel articulate their understanding of reparations and how they propose to atone for their past involvement in the transatlantic slave trade. Robert looks into Christian scripture to explore if there could be a theological case for the payment of reparations. Presenter: Robert Beckford Producer: Rajeev Gupta

Should the Lords Spiritual be scrapped? Currently 26 bishops sit in the Lords. But it's been reported that some cabinet ministers want that to end after the Church of England criticised the government's plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda. We debate the issues with the former attorney general Dominic Grieve - a practising Anglican and former Conservative MP - and Dr Jonathan Chaplin from the Divinity Faculty at the University of Cambridge. In Ukraine, the focus of the fighting has shifted to the Donbas region, but it is as fierce as ever. A senior government official has told the BBC that Ukraine is losing between one and two hundred troops every day. Military chaplain Father Sergiy Berezhnoy, a Ukrainian Orthodox priest and a chaplain to the 42nd Battalion of Defenders of Kyiv tells Edward how Ukrainian soldiers are bearing up in the latest battle. The Archbishop of Canterbury has apologised after research showed the Church of England's investment fund has links to the slave trade. Justin Welby said he is 'deeply sorry' for the links. But are apologies enough? We speak to Robert Beckford, Professor of Climate and Social Justice at the University of Winchester, who's recently been to Barbados to explore the legacy of the link between Anglicanism and slavery. As devoted yogis prepare to mark International Yoga Day, we speak to Heather Mason from the Yoga in Healthcare Alliance, which trains people to use yoga to prevent health conditions and we ask the Indian cultural minister for the UK, Amish Tripathi, how he feels about yoga being detached from its spiritual roots.

George Lamming, in full George William Lamming, (born June 8, 1927, Carrington Village, near Bridgetown, Barbados), was a West Indian novelist and essayist who wrote about decolonization and reconstruction in Caribbean nations.At Combermere High School, Lamming studied under Frank Collymore, editor of the Caribbean literary journal Bim, which published some of Lamming's early work. Lamming left Barbados and worked as a teacher in Trinidad from 1946 to 1950 before settling in England. His highly acclaimed first novel, In the Castle of My Skin(1953), is an autobiographical bildungsroman set against the backdrop of burgeoning nationalism in the British colonies of the Caribbean in the 1930s and '40s.Lamming continued to study decolonization in his succeeding three novels: The Emigrants (1954), a despairing, fragmentary work about Caribbean immigrants in post-World War II England; Of Age and Innocence (1958), a microcosmic look at the problems of political independence; and Season of Adventure (1960), in which a West Indian woman discovers her African heritage. The Pleasures of Exile (1960) is a collection of essays that examines Caribbean politics, race, and culture in an international context. Lamming's later novels included Water with Berries (1971), a political allegory based on William Shakespeare's The Tempest, and Natives of My Person (1971), about 16th-century explorers in the West Indies. His poetry and short stories were published in various anthologies, and Conversations, a volume of essays and interviews, was published in 1992.From https://www.britannica.com/biography/George-Lamming. For more information about George Lamming:“Remembering George Lamming's spirit of generosity”: https://www.newframe.com/remembering-george-lammings-spirit-of-generosity/The Pleasures of Exile: https://www.press.umich.edu//10236“George Lamming”: ​​https://www.theguardian.com/books/2022/jun/14/george-lamming-obituary

What are the consequences of the Church of England's historic slave plantations in Barbados today? Theologian Robert Beckford considers why and how the Church's missionary arm, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, got involved in the slavery business. He travels to Barbados to hear from a range of voices who tell the story of how in 1710, the Church turned the Codrington Plantation into a missionary experiment. The original mission failed but later generations did eventually adopt the Anglican faith. However, spurred by the country becoming a republic, some are now questioning the Church's historic role in slavery. For some, it has turned them away from Christianity; for others, there is a need to decolonise or Africanise Anglican Christianity in Barbados. They say the religion's only hope of survival on the island is to make it relevant to the black majority populace. Through the voices of Bajan Anglican worshipers, Robert interrogates what the future of the Church now looks like in terms of practice and governance in Barbados.

Clyde Seepersad is the Senior Vice President & General Manager, of the Training & Certification Project at The Linux Foundation. He carries the idea with him that failure is temporary. Knowing that can help you get through some pretty intense situations. On the flip side, knowing success is temporary gives you a chance to store away some of those good feelings, which can be used to temper the struggles as the cycle plays itself out.  "Life's a little bit like the stock market. Some days you're up, some days you're down, some days you're up big, some days you're down big. You're usually moving forward and up if you can stay focused. I say this to my team all the time. Things are going to break against you sometimes. And that's okay. Nobody's going to get taken out to the woodshed because things worked out different than what we thought. "The important thing is we keep communicating: what did we learn? What did we do differently today than we knew yesterday. How do you build on that going forward? "Clyde doesn't see himself as a techie. He actually has a slide in his presentations that says “I am not a techie” and it has a giant red slash through the word ‘techie'. Looking at his background, I have to agree. In 1994 he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from the University of the West Indies in Barbados. As a Rhodes Scholar, he received his MBA from Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, which is consistently ranked as one of the top business schools in the world.

This episode of Launch is the audio track of a conversation between GCC's Director of International Ministries Corey Schmatjen and GCC pastor and regional network leader, Kenyatta Lewis. Watch this conversation on Vimeo. Episode Transcript: Marty Duren: Welcome to Launch, the GCC Podcast. I'm your host, Marty Duren, Director of Communications for the Great Commission Collective. We're a global network of churches partnering together to plant churches and strengthen leaders. Marty Duren: On today's episode of Launch, you'll hear another conversation with our international ministries director, Corey Schmatjen, this time with Kenyatta Lewis. Kenyatta is the Senior Pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel in the Turks and Caicos. That's in the Caribbean, for those of you who are failing geography. He is well known among the GCC family. He's been the lead pastor there for a number of years. You may remember they dealt with a volcanic eruption in the not too distant past, and Kenyatta has dealt with some serious health issues, from which the Lord has brought him healthily through. And we are grateful for that. Think you're going to enjoy this conversation. Now here is Kenyatta and Corey. Corey: Well, welcome. My name is Corey Schmatjen. I serve with the Great Commission Collective as a Director of International Ministries. And I'm here today with Kenyatta Lewis. Kenyatta pastors a church in the Turks and Caicos. But even more than that, he provides regional care for our churches in the Caribbean. Corey: Well, Kenyatta, it is a joy to have you with us, and it is a big deal that you are here today, which we'll talk about in just a moment. I know it's been a challenging year for really everyone, when it comes to the pandemic, but for you in particular. COVID, a volcano in the Caribbean, St. Vincent, where you're from, as well as cancer. Could you just share a little bit with us what you've gone through this past year? Kenyatta: Yeah, yeah. Corey, it is so good to be here. Thank you for having me here. It's such a pleasure to be here, and I made it a plan to come here, and I'm just so thankful that I was able to come and just to share with other persons. Kenyatta: Yeah. So my journey over the last year has been a bit rough, to say the least. I went to St. Vincent. So I'm living in Turks and Caicos. And my family was in St. Vincent at the time. And I went to St. Vincent in March of 2021 on my daughter's birthday. And we celebrated that, and we had a great time. Kenyatta: And I was about to leave. I was living St. Vincent around April the 16th, and then the volcano, St. Vincent has an active volcano. It was having what was called... I forget the term now. I think it's effusive eruption or whatever, but it was steaming since December of 2020. And while I was there, April the ninth, it exploded. And thankfully, we were living in what was called a Green Zone, safer zone. So we were further south. The volcano was in the north of the island. And it erupted April the ninth. So here I am in St. Vincent, and I'm watching a live volcano erupting. And the ash bloom, and it went, I think what, 50 kilometers in the air and everything. So that happened. Kenyatta: But in the midst of that, God's people came together, and I had an opportunity to be in the middle of the relief effort. So we talked, probably a day or two after, and we spoke. And then you were like, "Hey, GCC is fully behind what's happening." Now I pastor in Turks and Caicos, though I'm Vincentian, and [inaudible 00:03:51] who is Vincentian. So we connected with him and started doing some stuff together. And then some relationships that I had with, or rather I have with Samaritan Spurs and Mission of Hope Haiti, and then our church back in Turks and Caicos and individuals, people were just coming together and saying how could we help? So I was in the middle of food and water and bringing relief effort and really enjoying it. Kenyatta: Then one day I was getting some knapsacks, 14 knapsacks to give to kids who were in a shelter. And I started feeling sick, really, really, really sick, really bad headache. And I had to be hospitalized. That was around April the 30th. I went to the hospital and they diagnosed me with a brain stroke. They said I had a brain stroke. And that was difficult to hear, of course, because I'm a young guy. I may only looks so right, but I'm still young. And my blood level, my hemoglobin level was extremely low, eight point something. So for the rest of May into June, I was just recovering. Kenyatta: And then eventually I went back to Turks and Caicos and my primary general practitioner, I went to him and we did a series of tests. And when he got back one of the results, he prayed with me. He's a Christian. He comes to our church. He got back one of the results and he said, "You're going to have a journey ahead, a very difficult journey." And he prayed with me and I went, "Okay, okay. Cool." And then one day I was home. This is in July, I was home. And the doctor called. I had done a colonoscopy. I don't recommend it. That was my first time. And I hope it would be my last time. And he called me and he said, "You have colon cancer and it's spread to the liver, and you have to go to Jamaica and you have to operate on it right away." Kenyatta: And I was like, "I need time." And right after he called, the hospital called. And right after the hospital called, somebody else called to work out me getting on a plane and whatnot. And everything changed in 30 minutes. And it was just difficult at that time. But God opened so many doors. So I'm on a plane, went to Jamaica, went with a friend of mine and they operated August 2nd. The doctor had said it was going to be a four-hour operation. It lasted nine hours. But again, God's grace. And that has been a theme that I got what was considered the A team, the best care possible, probably in the Caribbean, that these guys were all internationally known. They were all well-respected. So one guy worked on my colon and one guy worked on my liver and they were considered the best in their field. And they were so good. They were so encouraging. And they, by God's grace, they got it. They got the section of the colon that was infected out. They took half my liver. Kenyatta: And then I realized after that, they had also taken my gallbladder, which they added, "Oh, by the way, you don't have a gallbladder anymore." So recovery was difficult. And I was able to travel back to extent Turks and Caicos around August 27. So I spent a month in Jamaica and then just slowly getting back to normal, slowly getting back to normal. And then I started chemotherapy in October. And as difficult as it has been, because I'm still doing chemo and chemo is another, it's another trip, right? As difficult as it has been, the grace of God, his goodness, his mercy, people like yourself, praying, other church, churches all across the world, literally all across the GCC network in the Caribbean, just coming together and praying. It has been amazing. And I've seen God's grace. I've seen God's hand, I've seen God's provision during the most difficult time of my life I could say. And I've seen God's goodness through. Kenyatta: So I'm still in the midst of my treatment. I have eight cycles to do. I'm at number four. I'm praying that I don't have to do all eight because the chemo takes a turn on my body, but I'm so grateful that they were able to get it. It had not progressed as far as it could have been. I think it was stage three, going to stage four and the chemo has been helping. And I have a great oncology team, great support. The church back in Turks has been so wonderful. So I've been blessed. I've been blessed. Corey: Well, Kenyatta hearing that story, I would not wish that or desire that for anyone. And at the same time, we know that God uses suffering. Kenyatta: Yes. Corey: And could you just share with us, I think it was a comment that a local pastor made as he engaged with you and saw not only your suffering, but how you shared and talked about your suffering as well. Kenyatta: One of the things that we had prayed was that God would use this as an opportunity to advance his kingdom and his name. So we were very open with what was happening and what I was going through. And my wife Divia was just excellent. She was writing these updates and she was sending it out and people were sharing it. And we felt it was important to share with people. So Turks is a very small community. It's a very close knit community, also less than 50,000 people. And oftentimes people have gone through difficulties, but they keep it to themselves. They don't share, for whatever reason. And I was just the opposite, just sharing. So when I got back to Turks, people were walking up to me and saying, "Hey, Pastor Kenyatta, we are praying for you. Our church prayed for you." Kenyatta: And a few pastors said to me, "Thank you so much for being so open because that's not the norm. Thank you so much for being so transparent. Because people get sick, they keep it to themselves. They don't share it with anybody and whether they die or whether they recover or whatnot, it's not of value that people are sharing. And you are doing the opposite. You are actually saying this is my struggle. And this is what God is doing." Kenyatta: And I've had people from English-speaking churches, Haitian Creole speaking churches who have said, "We have heard what's going on. And we are praying for you." Members of their churches have said to me, "We have heard what's going on. We are praying for you." Pastors have come and said, "Thank you so much for being vulnerable and being transparent. We are praying for you."` And I think what that has done, it's in a small way, just brought the community of churches, churches that I've worked with in the past, churches that we as a church in Turks and Caicos, we have worked with who have said, "We are praying for you." Kenyatta: And I hope that that vulnerability would help other people to realize, hey, pastors are human and we go through struggles and we go through challenges and we need, as much as you do, we need your prayers. We need your support. We need your, "Hey pastor, we are thinking about you. We are praying for you." So it was so good hearing that. It's not always easy being that transparent, but it's something that God has really placed on our heart. So we are very open with these struggles [inaudible 00:12:09] time. So when people ask, "How are you doing?" I say, "Today has been a good day." Or "Today is a good day." And if it's not, I say, "You know what? I was crying and it was probably the medication. Probably I'm getting older, but I'm thankful again for God's grace. He's been so, so good." Corey: Well Kenyatta, as a network leader for the Caribbean, obviously this was not part of your grand strategy. And obviously God is using it for much good and to advance his kingdom and testify at the reality of our Lord and savior through you. Speaking of church plant in the Caribbean, to transition here, when people think of the Caribbean, let's be honest. They think of vacation, at least in that sense. Kenyatta: Sun. Corey: Sun. Yeah. Kenyatta: And sea. Corey: Especially this time of year, winter. Kenyatta: Yes. Corey: But there's challenges to church planting in the Caribbean. Why don't you speak to some of those challenges that you face, but also the vision that you have for your people and your region, the Caribbean? Kenyatta: Yeah. So the Caribbean, English-speaking Caribbean, well, let me backtrack. The Caribbean has four main languages. Spanish is number one. Cuba still in the Caribbean because it's washed by the Caribbean sea. So Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico is American and it's still located. And then we have Haitian Creole. We have Dutch and we have English. So about 5 million people speak English, and that's across a number of countries, about 14 countries. So you have the Jamaica, which is bigger, Trinidad, which is bigger. Then you have small places like St. Kitts, Nevis and Antigua and Barbuda that have less than 100,000 people. So it's very diverse. Kenyatta: Now in the English-speaking Caribbean, we share some common things, common history, economic block, political system and structures. But there also some differences. There are racial differences, it's a very multicultural place. The Caribbean is, people think it's only Afro-Caribbeans, but you have in the Caribbean, Asian-Caribbean, so it's very multicultural. And while it's beautiful, there's some challenges, especially challenges to church planting. But you and I know when we say church planting, we are couching it in the idea that we are speaking of a specific type of church planting or a specific church that will be planted. Kenyatta: So one of the challenges that we have in the Caribbean is that it's a very churched area. We have a lot of churches and not all these churches are healthy. And some of these churches have hurt people, whether inadvertently or not, it's been, I don't know if you want to call it church abuse, if that's a good term. So some people have been turned off from churches and as such planting a church of the type that we want to plant is difficult because you're now talking to people who have been burnt, people who have been hurt, people who have said, "I've done the church thing and I don't want to do it again." Kenyatta: But in addition to that, you also have some church models and some church structures that are not the healthiest, probably skirting the whole idea of what an orthodox church is. So you have the prevalence of these movements and they're growing and they're influencing people and we know they would cause long term damage, because they're not healthy. They're not preaching a clear doctrine. They're not in relationships. And it's just not a good representation of who Jesus Christ is. So you have that to compete against, along with the other difficulties where each island brings its own unique context. So planting in Barbados, high cost of living. Planting in rural Jamaica, planting in Antigua, planting in Turks, while there's some similarities, there are also some challenges. Kenyatta: And we don't have a large number of theological institutions in the Caribbean. We have a little bit more now. So even trained pastors, that's another challenge, that a number of persons, I don't have exact figures at this time, but a number of church leaders have not been theologically trained. Or if they have, it's been minimal. So that poses a challenge. And I remember Lausanne Committee, about probably 10 or so years ago, mentioned one of the biggest problems that we face our church is biblically illiteracy. Kenyatta: So when you have a church leader who hasn't been exposed to solid grounded theological training, you know what's going to happen in the pulpit and then people are going to grow up in the church, so to speak, with a very limited understanding of who God is, a limited understanding of the gospel, a limited understanding of how the gospel impacts them. So that again is another challenge that some people are coming to the church need to unlearn what they've heard and then you need to reteach them, hey, this is what it is. So that's another challenge as it relates to church planting. Corey: So it sounds like the challenges are quite a few, manifest in terms of ethically, linguistically and politically. Kenyatta: Yes. Yes. Corey: Put all those together. Kenyatta: Yes. Corey: But that God uses gospel to unite. And I trust to use you, Kenyatta, to help train up theologically sound, gospel-centered church planters that would plant churches that would be healthy and multiplying in the Caribbean. Kenyatta: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Corey: And that is a hope, isn't it? Kenyatta: And that's something that's on my heart, too. It's something that God has placed on my heart to see spiritual renewal take place in the Caribbean amongst the healthy churches and also to see a spiritual awakening. There have been pockets here and there of where the gospel has been preached and it has borne fruit and churches have been formed. But then again, you have cases where it's not happened and the church has become a byword. The church has become secondary to what's happening. The church is losing relevance amongst young people. So it's my heart to see a renewed church, a strong church. And as you mentioned, a multiplying church. And we use the word healthy a lot in GCC, because it's actually one of the things that we focus on, healthy leaders, healthy churches. But even though we use it a lot, we can't over emphasize the importance of a healthy church and a healthy leader because there's such an increased prevalence of unhealthy churches and unhealthy leaders. Kenyatta: And we don't want to be pointing fingers and stuff like that, even though sometimes we may have to, but my hope and my vision for the Caribbean is that we will have healthy churches and strong leaders, people of integrity, people who are being discipled. And as such, God would be pleased to bring a spiritual awakening throughout the Caribbean region, through these churches and through these leaders. Corey: Amen. Kenyatta: Amen. Corey: Well may God get you healthy, Kenyatta to lead the charge there in the Caribbean. And may God continue to show his mercy upon you, his goodness and his power and provision for you. I think there's much work yet to be done in the Caribbean. And we're excited. We're leaning in, we're praying for you. Kenyatta: Yes. Thank you. Corey: And care for you, Kenyatta. Kenyatta: Thank you. Corey: Thank you so much for sharing today. Kenyatta: Really appreciate that. Thank you for having me, Corey. Corey: You're more than welcome. Well, thank you as well.

Thank you so much for agreeing to come on Leon.   03:42 Welcome. It's good to be here. Thank you, Jennifer offering this opportunity.   03:46 Oh my gosh, I've just And it's funny, right people, we still we came on, I learned that you were just in Barbados, and you have a bunch of patients there and you were vacationing, that's incredible, you are living a life. There's so many opportunities and you're living that right now. I love it.   04:03 Absolutely. There are opportunities all across the world when it comes to physiotherapy. It's known as physiotherapy in most parts of the world, and physical therapy here in the United States. But just in the islands, you know, there's just a huge huge opportunity to bring the kinds of things that we do here to that particular population, because of the all the different technologies and nuances and things that we have, you know, that we have here. So, I was in addition to enjoying the beach in the sand, I was also enjoying given our advice on how to become a more functional individual, and whatever Island or whatever society or community that you live in.   04:42 I love that. Thank you. Thank you for your service series. That's incredible. I love that. I wanted to bring you on today to actually talk about a PT specifically talk about the history how it became to be in everything So I would love to just start with your perspective specifically, and how it came into your life.   05:09 Well, I grew up with, you can say occupational inheritance. My father was the 16th person in Ohio to be licensed as a physical therapist. He was a vanguard in our profession. He held many, many, I guess positions, if you would say, locally, nationally, even internationally, he was one of the first African Americans to be on the board of directors for the AAPT. In fact, there is a, a room at our headquarters in Alexandria. That is the Black Heritage Room, and it's named after my father and one of his protegees, who's also my mentor, the late Dr. Linda Woodruff, who was just an amazing, amazing mentor, and my father, Leon Anderson, Jr. and since I'm the third, but if you rewind back to when he got started, a PT that started mainly the the PTS of color that were involved in the APTA just didn't feel that their needs were being met, you know, as it relates to our communities. And so there are a couple of different little groups, like blacks interested in physical therapy or charm, I can't remember right now exactly what the term acronym is, maybe I'll think about that. But there are different groups that they would meet at the eight PTA annual conferences. And at some point, I think it was 1989. It was at 1989. In September, in Chicago, about 90 individuals met and I was actually a student, myself, and also donna, donna, it was not a fun doll, then. Now it was done in green Howard, that we were both students at the time. And now these individuals got together and they decided they wanted to do something that was going to be specific for the African American community and meet the needs of those communities that are disadvantaged and poor. And so that's where, you know, it was born out of and we have so many, I mean, just a plethora of talented African American PTS, in academia, in private practice, in the hospital setting, and, you know, in the military, just in all of the different different settings, and very accomplished, very accomplished ones also, I mean, it's just amazing. The BB Clemens, the, I mean, the mayor McLeod's, the Robert Babs, there's just so many that so many people who, who contributed so much to this organization early on, and we've done just many, many, many things to help students and then help our community. So that's, you know, in I hate the Babylon, but that is a kind of how we were born born out of a need, that needs weren't being met by the large the large organization, the APTA.   08:08 Oh, my gosh, this is a nerdy question. Okay. The meeting was in Chicago, was it over pizza? You know,   08:17 believe it or not see. So once again, we have such an accomplished set of founders. It was at like a, a Hilton, or a Sheraton, a Sheraton Hotel, where we all met. And, you know, they used Robert's Rules of orders, it was extremely, extremely organized. But remember, for years prior, there were these little interest groups that would meet over pizza and over coffee and over tea and you know, different things for many years, at the different organizational meetings, whether it be the annual meeting, or the combined section, or what have you. So at that meeting, we actually they actually established, you know, a skeleton of what our current bylaws are for the AAPT right now, so it was a very, very, very industrial meeting. And productive meeting over that weekend back in September 1989.   09:12 Wow, that is so cool. I love it. It really was from the ground up. It just organically. It happened so organically. And it was a major need and it just grew. I love that. That is so cool. And your legacy. Oh, you probably carry it. That was so much pride. I love that for you with getting involved. So your dad's involved. Did you feel pressure at the beginning? Like how did that happen? Because your dad is just so prestigious? And is it doing so many things for the profession? How was that for you?   09:47 Well, believe it or not, my first degree is actually in computer science at a computer science degree from The Ohio State University. And what I found was that by my junior year I was doing some statistics statistical analysis where my father during the summertime didn't do my summer off. And I was at a, a facility for the mentally and physically challenged. And while I was, you know, doing fixing the computers and trying to network computers and things, I also was a transportation aide. And I will transfer the patients from their cottages, to the main Physical Therapy Center. And I found that I fell in love with patient care. Although I'm the nerdy, mathematical computer guy and logical guy in my head, I found it to be extremely satisfaction, I found a lot of satisfaction, I should say, in interacting with these patients. And that's why I fell in love with this therapy, my junior year when I was at Ohio State. So I decided I wasn't going to just throw those three years away, I went ahead and finished out my, my, my career there ha state. And luckily, because my parents said they were not going to pay for a second education, I had to do it on my own. Luckily, I got a scholarship and academic and leadership scholarship because I went to our house State, I was on a board of this organization, students together against apartheid. And I was a peer counselor, I won the black leadership award my senior year. So with those along with my GPA, I was eligible for a scholarship. And I ended up at University of Connecticut, you know, on scholarship, so that worked out great, I wouldn't say that I felt pressure, it's my father just wanted to always want me to do whatever I was I was good at and, and to be happy, and to whatever I did wanted me to be the best at what I did, and to strive for excellence. But once again, I fell in love with patient care that that that summer 19, I think was 1985. And I really haven't looked back,   11:47 I want to get into the mission statement of a PT, I'm going to read them in sections because so that way it can be discussed each part in more depth, although I think it's quite, quite easy to interpret. So the mission statement is the American Academy of physical therapy is a non not for profit organization whose mission is to provide relief to poor and disadvantaged African Americans and other minorities by and let's talk about this first one, promoting a new innovative programs in health promotion, health delivery systems and disease prevention. Would you mind just talking more on the importance of that?   12:26 Well, we just have so many different talented individuals who are in all these different aspects, whether it be neuro, whether it be neurotherapy, whether it be sports and mettam, sports, med Med, whether it be dealing with childhood, obesity, bottom line is, I think it was back in 2010 with the Department of Human Services, Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities disparities came out with all of their initiatives, and we partnered with them. And I think it was probably 20 or $30,000. Grant, but I'm not sure right now. But But the bottom line is, is we partnered with them, because we wanted to really make an impact in our community, as relates to the health care disparities. So whether it's talking about diabetes are having different hypertension, and different organizational would you call them community health fairs, or programs, we even had a program with the Patterson cow foundation that they supported for childhood obesity. Our goal is for our individual members in their communities to make an impact and partner with the organization at large and use us, you know, to help them make the impact in our community using our resources. And our net network.   13:54 Yeah, yeah. It's funny as talking right now, everything you're saying is great. My husband's musical theater and he's singing full out right now. So I just want to acknowledge it is what it is love him. And you know what life is a musical? Isn't that great? Next, encouraging minority students to pursue careers in allied health professions. Oh, can you talk about the need there?   14:17 And on that note, we'll take a quick break to hear from our sponsor and be right back. When it comes to boosting your clinics, online visibility, reputation and increasing referrals, net Health's digital marketing solutions have the tools you need to beat the competition. They know you want your clinic to get found, get chosen and definitely get those five star reviews on Google. Net Health is a fun new offer. If you sign up and complete a marketing audit to learn how digital marketing solutions can help your clinic win. They will buy lunch for your office. If you're already using Net Health private practice EMR, be sure to ask about his new integration. Head over to net help.com forward slash Li TZY to sign up for your complimentary marketing audit.   14:59 Also keeps me there, I think that we are still less than 3% of the profession. And the goal is to really expose the minority students to the profession as early as we can. So whether that means are different individuals, whether we're at one of our conferences, when we do some of the community outreach, or just someone in their own community, that's exposing individuals by going to health fairs going to speak at the local professional, and career career days, we've had so many opportunities. In fact, my wife and I, in conjunction with the American Academy of physical therapy, we ran a program called Let's Talk About program that did just that it really expose the kids to different professions until to improving their life skills and to becoming excellent and just empowering them to awaken the genius within them. And once again, that was one of those organizations that partnered with the APTA and use the 501 C three, until we got our own 501 C three, but then continue to partner with them. Because the goal is, if you can expose a child and broaden their horizons, it just gives them more options, on what they what they can do and what they can be when they get older. And it makes it makes perfect sense that if you can see yourself doing something, then or someone like you doing something, it increases the possibility that you have in your own mind that you can actually do it yourself. So when you look at Barack Obama, you have you have no idea how many, you know, kids right now can think to themselves that wow, Brock Obama was president I can be president or rob Tillman, or Leon Anderson, is, you know, high in an organization, doing things to help our community, I can do that same thing, I can make that particular impact. We've also had   16:51 visual affirmations, literally, yes,   16:54 we absolutely. We've also had many educational opportunities to help with our students. And just making sure that once you get into PT school, that you pass the exams, we used to hold many of the exam prep courts of the exam, prep organizations and courses around the country.   17:19 That's great. Yeah, it's all there's so much opportunity in this. It's a big one. It's a big one. And no, this speaks to any, any, anybody would like who is black, or in a minority, this speaks to you right away. Absolutely. And if you are wondering apps, yes, definitely reach out to AAPT. This is, this is part of their mission. Next, and finally is performing clinical research directly related to health conditions found within minority communities.   17:49 Same thing as as before, we encourage our, our members, and our constituents and our stakeholders, to engage with the professional organizations and do their poster research. And, you know, to really see, you know, what it is that our community needs, because most of the research that's done is just is or has been done historically, has been on the typical, you know, American, which may be a five, seven, you know, 40 year old white male. So the key is, we really want to make sure that we get data that lets us know, you know, what is the optimal amount of vitamin D, for a African American and living in the, you know, the Bible Belt, you know, that has this particular type of, of exercise level. There, this particular type of diet, you know, so, over the years, we've had many of those posters and the different organizations, annual conferences, and also in Chicago, Diane Adams, Saulsbury. And Vinod Rosebery, who's who's actually mayor now, they, in conjunction with the AAPT had a phenomenal he was a kid's fitness health club at an actual health club, and they were able to, to glean data on the health of our community, as relates to our kids and how they interact with an actual exercise routine. And a, a place to go that's safe, and also informative, and getting them to where they need to be. It was just it was just phenomenal. It was it was a phenomenal organization, and a phenomenal, healthy place to go.   19:47 I'm so grateful you have this research as part of your mission. I teach people how to treat dancers PTS PTAs. And we had a group discussion, one I, where we, we I pulled research and tried to find research on dancers, black dancers might be, where's that research black female dancers. And there was, there was one and it had clear bias. But it did show a little bit that there needed to be a lot more investigation. And, and then it just it was like crickets, it was crickets, when I was searching on PubMed, trying to find studies, specifically on minority bodies with that purpose for comparative data. And we didn't have in the little time I did to gather, we started talking about vitamin D, like you just mentioned, not from me knowing to bring it up. But from another black physical therapist in the room and other other black PCs in the room. Honestly, that became a topic. And it wasn't from research, it was was just from personal experience is and it's just, yeah, we need we need this information to do better for humans. so badly.   21:09 It's funny that you say that, Jenny, because one of my protegees it's interesting, because in when you talk about the academy, one of the one of the things that I think we're really, really famous for is it's an it's an N. It's been unofficial for many, many years. But we have a navigation program that helps not only students get into the profession, and get into school and stay in school, and then in addition to that, pass the exam, once you get into the to the profession, and how do you even navigate the profession. So when you mentioned the dancers, I immediately thought of one of my previous employer, employees and that one of my previous students, her name is Shane, I know I'm messing up her last name. And I think she's married now. So I'm really messing up her maiden name, but it's ojo, Fatima, I believe anyway, she is the she is definitely the TCS, the top physical therapist with the L Navy dance troupe. I think she might even be the medical director right now, I'm not going to be sure about about it. She's actually the medical director, I know that they really lean on her big, big time. But she's somebody who, you know, absolutely should be should be out front, not only giving you the information that you might need for your Google, you know, search. But once again, she's there to let that young girl or guy, you know, who's interested in dance, know that, you know, not only not only can you be involved in the performance arts as a dancer, but also as a medical or healthcare professional, or navigation program. So I think that she was a patient of I mean, a student of mine, at least 12 years ago, but our communication has never waned. We even talked as recently as last month, about her career, where careers going in and also getting other younger physical therapists and other parts of the country hooked up with her because as when they travel, they need to use local services, local physical therapy services, and whether that means, you know, a practice that they can come into while they're in that city or if there is a opportunity for an intern in a particular city where they are to come and spend some time with him. So our navigation program is so wide and it's so varied. When you look at just my career alone. I had my father I had Dr. Linda Woodruff. I had Rob Tillman. I had Robert Babs, I had at least 10 or 15, close mentors, role models, advisors, who could help me navigate where it is that I wanted to be, whether it's whether we're on Capitol Hill, doing some lobbying for physical therapy codes, whether I'm dealing with Ohio State University and their football team, or, or whether we're talking about trying to have a Howard University accredited exam. I remember I met with the president of Howard University because I was on the commission for accreditation for physical therapy, education. And I was there for an accredited accrediting visit. And now one of the people who's come in under our navigation, Vanessa LeBlanc, she is now a captive reviewer. So the reach is so wide and so long, that, you know, just being being associated with this network affords you such a wide array of opportunities and possibilities.   24:40 Absolutely. I'm just more than this navigation program. People might be perked up going, what is this? What is this? So I'm going to use some outsider terms on this. So yes, this is a mentorship program, but it's different. And it's really about when you connect with AAPT in court I'm where I'm mixing it up or saying it wrong. So when you connect with AAPT, anyone to a PT is they have a very large network of people with different expertise and you get forwarded to the right person. It's not just within the, the heads of the organization, because, I mean, everybody's doing this volunteer why so not? They can't, they can't, I'll take on everyone. But then from there, you go to this huge web, imagine like, Charlotte's beautimous beautiful web that's extremely expanded and connects you to all the multiple people that would advise you and take you through your journey to really accomplish a lot. It's very cool. And, and, and naturally expanding like you just said, with your your student, how you're now connecting her with students, you know, or people who could use her help. I think it's very, very cool thing that AAPT has going on. Did I explain that correctly?   26:00 I think so. I think he did a good a good summary job. Because it's not a instone program, what it is is right, right, exactly the way the way you the way you explained it was very, very, very good.   26:12 Yes, score. This AAPT has, has been around since 1989, as Leon was saying, and is an organization either, too, if you want to get involved, please reach out to them. Volunteers are always welcomed, there's plenty of opportunity, as you can hear from the mission statement. And, yeah, anything else you want to add on AAPT? A topic that I have potentially looked over because this is a big organ, this organization is a big deal. And I don't want to miss anything?   26:45 Well, no, I think you hit on the major things, I will say go to the website, if you have questions, then, you know, go ahead and submit them through the through the website. It's just a, an organization that I think is just very much relevant and needed to make sure that our community continues to be relevant, and get what get what it needs. That to keep us moving forward and moving in the right direction, because we're all connected. And we all need one another at some point, you never know when you're going to need need someone I remember, there was a member that was I would say he would come to the or to the meetings maybe every other year or something like that. I'll leave him nameless. But when he came, and he was actually being attacked by the State Board for a reason, that was not necessarily his fault. But because we had so many members that were involved in academia and also involved in the state boards that were able to help them out. But once again, you don't know what you need a lot of times until you need it. So just be involved, I would say it'd be involved in your, in all the associations that you can get that are professional associations, because you can glean information from from from everyone. Just because you're a member of AAPT doesn't mean you should not be a member of a PTA or any other healthcare or allied health organization that you think you're a possible stakeholder. And so yeah, I think that it just really makes sense to stay connected to the professional organizations because you won't know what hit you until it hits you. So what you want to do is stay ahead of the paddles, which is one of the terms that we use in our business, there's always a paddle coming after us at every every every point where there's legislation, or COVID It doesn't matter what it is. So the key is to be as prepared as you possibly can for each panels that come and if you can somehow anticipate what a panel you know might be booked for comps and by doing that you can be up on the current legislation you can be up on the current trends in the professor because we become about you know the current pitfalls you know, and then you're much more likely to be a successful individual and happy with your professor.
