The Medium: Books, Workshops & Materials
The Messenger: Dr. Richard M. Williams
Institutionalized racism has infiltrated our family, our health and our education. The root cause of this
destruction was the enslavement of black people in the United States. Although slavery no longer exists,
its residuals still linger today. We must make non-effect the destructive power of institutionalized racism
on black communities. We need to restore and rebuild.
We are committed to educate, inform, stimulate and challenge as we move toward healing, reformation
and growth. We must…for our families, for our communities.


Dr. Richard M. Williams speaks and writes about issues and
problems affecting the black family, the black male, the black
female, the black child, health practices in the black community.
His workshops and presentations provoke thought, challenge the
status quo, educate, entertain and at times shake the core of
beliefs of participants. By explaining why Black Americans must
determine their destiny by themselves and for themselves his work
functions as catalyst in this very necessary process.
