The September Theme is “The Eye of the Storm.” The month of September is known as the peak of hurricane season. We, too, have entered a focal point in the conversation of systemic racism. Covid 19 exposed horrendous health discrepancies (Social Determinants of Health.) As we seem to be moving away from the pandemic into a relative calm (Eye of the Storm), those discrepancies still exist. How did we get here, what’s next, ultimately do Black Lives Matter and Brown lives as well in the “Eye of the Storm”?” With this special issue, we will be introducing our new Health and Wellness page of the magazine featuring Tracy Martin and Dr. Fred Smith.
I am Kevin Robinson. I have been a pioneer in diversity, having lived it, being raised in Perry Township, Ohio as a young child of the first African American Family in the area and school. With all of the negative realities of pre-nineteen-seventies suburbia serving as a focal point in his life, I chose unity over division. Many years in the making through a long career as a professional Fire Fighter, (1985-2018), achievements a bachelor degree, senior co-pastor (1993-2001), staff pastor (2004-2006), evangelist, consultant, and mentor/mediator to many in the area of multicultural ministry. Along with my wife, Beverly, I have established a track record of building up multi-ethnic congregations and the corporate world. Kevin and Beverly are also Authors of The book entitled Coat of Many Colors. View all posts by Kevin Robinson
