It is one thing for my children to read the news about Nepal, Syria, Liberia and Baltimore. It is another thing entirely for them to understand that they are part of one Brotherhood. To feel the connection that leads to action.

I love in life how one thing leads to another, especially if we are open to it. When I began having balance and mobility difficulty in 2003, I went, on the guidance of my primary care physician, to a neurologist at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

How Are You Hustling?

If deep down we believe that we're not enough as we are, we do everything we can to prop up our self-esteem and avoid feeling that pain. So instead of doing the inner work to heal the wound, we simply hustle for our worth.

These boys don't often cough up love for one another, but when I catch these fleeting gestures -- one boy calls, the other answers -- I feel the strings pull taut. I think that maybe, just maybe, I've managed to give them a family.

Marshall Fine

There's been a lot of action at the movies this summer, very little of it memorable. So Baltasar Kormakur's 2 Guns comes as a welcome surprise: a film with the wit, tension and sheer headlong pace to grab and hold your attention for a brisk 106 minutes.

My sons take their seats, the motor kicks on and the swings start turning to the right in a soft, careful circle. It is their spotlight. It is as wide as a slow dance and twice as wild. Their hearts beat accordingly. They pass me by again and again. The only thing that changes is the calendar.

This is what I suggest to the black men of the Ivy League. Find yourself. Be yourself; let your inner-character be what stands out beyond these letters, symbols and titles. Be the John Doe that is very smart and funny, rather than the John Doe that is the Kappa.

End of Watch has the odd-angle, hand-held-camera feel of a documentary. Police cruisers are equipped with camera and even gang members carry video-cameras around to record their exploits. Social media and its record-and-share-it-now aesthetic are apparent.
