  8. We are developing a special seminar for Black males and other males under the rubic of “Pocket-Pool Monologue.” These dialogical sessions deal with all aspects of male sexuality. There is a questionnaire included here: (A 20 questions nonviolent test at the beginning of the website which deals with violence and male sexuality). A separate Nonviolent Study Guide: with 500 School of Human Dignity Life Lesson Principles will be available in the late fall of 2009. The nonviolent study guide must be purchased at a separate price from the book Autobiography of Black Male Violence;it will include some 20 quizzes, which are reflective of the book. The “Pocket-Pool Monologue” is a comprehensive man-boy discussion of male sexuality. Finally, we support legislation and policy such as that advocated by Congressman Danny Davis, Congressman Bobby Rush, Chicago psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Bell’s, “7 Field Principles for Violence Prevention,” State of Illinois Human Resources Director, Dr. Carol Adams, the findings of the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, the World Health Organization, Illinois State Representative Constance Howard and public officials who advocate stronger gun control, violence reduction, and new paradigms, which generate positive self-esteem for Black males.
