  • 00:02:42.585 --> 00:02:43.586
  • I knew pretty early onthat I didn't like him,which is why
  • 00:02:43.653 --> 00:02:44.621
  • that I didn't like him,which is whyI always tell parents,
  • 00:02:44.687 --> 00:02:45.688
  • which is whyI always tell parents,if your child
  • 00:02:45.755 --> 00:02:46.756

  • 00:02:47.957 --> 00:02:48.958
  • doesn't like someone,pay attention to that.But she allowed him
  • 00:02:49.025 --> 00:02:50.026
  • pay attention to that.But she allowed himto move into the house.
  • 00:02:50.093 --> 00:02:51.094
  • But she allowed himto move into the house.And shortly after he moved in,
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:52.161
  • to move into the house.And shortly after he moved in,he began sexually abusing me.
  • 00:02:52.228 --> 00:02:55.298
  • And shortly after he moved in,he began sexually abusing me.That experience,
  • 00:02:55.365 --> 00:02:57.367
  • he began sexually abusing me.That experience,it not only devastated me
  • 00:02:57.433 --> 00:02:58.801
  • That experience,it not only devastated meand my identity
  • 00:02:58.868 --> 00:03:00.003
  • it not only devastated meand my identitybut I think it was compounded
  • 00:03:00.069 --> 00:03:01.437
  • and my identitybut I think it was compoundedby the fact that he told me,
  • 00:03:01.504 --> 00:03:03.439
  • but I think it was compoundedby the fact that he told me,"You better not tell your mom
  • 00:03:03.506 --> 00:03:05.074
  • by the fact that he told me,"You better not tell your mombecause she never
  • 00:03:05.141 --> 00:03:06.509
  • "You better not tell your mombecause she neverwanted you anyway."
  • 00:03:06.576 --> 00:03:07.677
  • because she neverwanted you anyway."It just devastated me.
  • 00:03:07.744 --> 00:03:09.212
  • wanted you anyway."It just devastated me.So I didn't tell her
  • 00:03:09.279 --> 00:03:11.047
  • It just devastated me.So I didn't tell herfor a couple of years
  • 00:03:11.114 --> 00:03:12.315
  • So I didn't tell herfor a couple of yearsbut after I did tell her,
  • 00:03:12.382 --> 00:03:13.383
  • for a couple of yearsbut after I did tell her,I was about
  • 00:03:13.449 --> 00:03:14.517
  • but after I did tell her,I was aboutseven-and-a-half years old,
  • 00:03:14.584 --> 00:03:15.752
  • I was aboutseven-and-a-half years old,she had him arrested.
  • 00:03:15.818 --> 00:03:16.986
  • seven-and-a-half years old,she had him arrested.But on the day
  • 00:03:17.053 --> 00:03:18.221
  • she had him arrested.But on the dayof his release from jail
  • 00:03:18.288 --> 00:03:19.355
  • But on the dayof his release from jailshe took me with her
  • 00:03:19.422 --> 00:03:20.490
  • of his release from jailshe took me with herto pick him up
  • 00:03:20.556 --> 00:03:21.624
  • she took me with herto pick him upand brought him back home
  • 00:03:21.691 --> 00:03:22.892
  • to pick him upand brought him back homewhere he proceeded
  • 00:03:22.959 --> 00:03:24.060
  • and brought him back homewhere he proceededto continue abusing me.
  • 00:03:24.127 --> 00:03:25.561
  • where he proceededto continue abusing me.So it was
  • 00:03:25.628 --> 00:03:26.829
  • to continue abusing me.So it wasa devastating childhood
  • 00:03:26.896 --> 00:03:28.031
  • So it wasa devastating childhoodand I think the fact
  • 00:03:28.097 --> 00:03:29.132
  • a devastating childhoodand I think the factthat I didn't grow up
  • 00:03:29.198 --> 00:03:30.233
  • and I think the factthat I didn't grow upin a Christian home
  • 00:03:30.300 --> 00:03:31.434
  • that I didn't grow upin a Christian homemade it worse.
  • 00:03:31.501 --> 00:03:32.468
  • in a Christian homemade it worse.I didn't know
  • 00:03:32.535 --> 00:03:33.503
  • made it worse.I didn't knowanything about God,
  • 00:03:33.569 --> 00:03:34.537
  • I didn't knowanything about God,hope, Bible, church,
  • 00:03:34.604 --> 00:03:35.571
  • anything about God,hope, Bible, church,and so I tried to take
  • 00:03:35.638 --> 00:03:36.606
  • hope, Bible, church,and so I tried to takemy life at the ages
  • 00:03:36.673 --> 00:03:37.640
  • and so I tried to takemy life at the agesof nine and eleven.
  • 00:03:37.707 --> 00:03:38.675
  • my life at the agesof nine and eleven.I truly had no sense of hope

  • 00:03:39.842 --> 00:03:40.810
  • I truly had no sense of hopein my life.So I tell people
  • 00:03:40.877 --> 00:03:41.844
  • in my life.So I tell peoplewhen they look at me today,
  • 00:03:41.911 --> 00:03:42.912

  • 00:15:57.746 --> 00:15:58.914
  • don't necessarily see thatthey really need to knowin order to find some healing
  • 00:15:58.981 --> 00:16:00.082
  • they really need to knowin order to find some healingand bridge some of the gaps.
  • 00:16:00.149 --> 00:16:02.818
  • in order to find some healingand bridge some of the gaps.Nona: Yeah.
  • 00:16:02.885 --> 00:16:04.219
  • and bridge some of the gaps.Nona: Yeah.Part of our challenge is,
  • 00:16:04.286 --> 00:16:05.554
  • Nona: Yeah.Part of our challenge is,and I'll give you an analogy.
  • 00:16:05.621 --> 00:16:06.789
  • Part of our challenge is,and I'll give you an analogy.So if you've seen
  • 00:16:06.855 --> 00:16:08.090
  • and I'll give you an analogy.So if you've seena beach ball,
  • 00:16:08.157 --> 00:16:09.191
  • So if you've seena beach ball,you know there are
  • 00:16:09.258 --> 00:16:10.392
  • a beach ball,you know there aredifferent strips of color.
  • 00:16:10.459 --> 00:16:11.460
  • you know there aredifferent strips of color.So there is like a blue strip,
  • 00:16:11.527 --> 00:16:12.494
  • different strips of color.So there is like a blue strip,a red strip, a yellow strip,
  • 00:16:12.561 --> 00:16:13.662
  • So there is like a blue strip,a red strip, a yellow strip,a green strip,
  • 00:16:13.729 --> 00:16:14.863
  • a red strip, a yellow strip,a green strip,and I think
  • 00:16:14.930 --> 00:16:15.998
  • a green strip,and I thinkpart of our challenge is
  • 00:16:16.065 --> 00:16:17.132
  • and I thinkpart of our challenge iswe live our life on
  • 00:16:17.199 --> 00:16:18.300
  • part of our challenge iswe live our life onone strip of the ball.
  • 00:16:18.367 --> 00:16:19.501
  • we live our life onone strip of the ball.So if I'm on the blue strip,
  • 00:16:19.568 --> 00:16:20.769
  • And if somebody
  • 00:16:22.004 --> 00:16:23.072
  • And if somebodywas to talk to me about red
  • 00:16:23.138 --> 00:16:24.106
  • was to talk to me about redI would say
  • 00:16:24.173 --> 00:16:25.174
  • I would saythere is no such thing as red
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:26.308
  • there is no such thing as redbecause all I know is blue.
  • 00:16:26.375 --> 00:16:27.443
  • because all I know is blue.So I think
  • 00:16:27.509 --> 00:16:28.510
  • and I've talked to a lot
  • 00:16:29.678 --> 00:16:30.646
  • and I've talked to a lotof my white Christian
  • 00:16:30.712 --> 00:16:31.880
  • and I've talked to a lotof my white Christianbrothers and sisters,
  • 00:16:31.947 --> 00:16:32.981
  • of my white Christianbrothers and sisters,the biggest blind spot
  • 00:16:33.048 --> 00:16:34.116
  • brothers and sisters,the biggest blind spotis just recognizing

  • 00:17:23.832 --> 00:17:25.434
  • the first enslaved Africansarrived here in the U.S.,it became about

  • arrived here in the U.S.,it became aboutthe black people
  • 00:17:27.002 --> 00:17:28.270

  • of 1.000 people eachfor decades,
  • 00:19:36.431 --> 00:19:38.233
  • for decades,that's why we would call it
  • 00:19:38.300 --> 00:19:39.368
  • that's why we would call ita lifetime because they last
