We first hit the West Coast where Aaron Valencia, a man who was able to take the shattered bits of his troubled and painful childhood and put them back together again, all in an effort to give back. His mission in life has become to help the children, not only in his hometown, but across the globe. Hot rods and helping hands. Then we make our way to British Columbia, where Eileen Davidson has to show great physical and emotional strength just to make it through each day. Ravaged by rheumatoid arthritis and…

THE LIFESTYLE ISSUE I just have to say that I couldn’t have been happier than to walk into my local bookstore and see the love of my life, the apple of my eye, the doodle of my canoodle — on the cover of your latest issue.

I immigrated with my parents at an early age to Southern California with hopes of a brighter future. How did the…

Having grown up in crack-era Brooklyn, in between a housing project and a Russian ghetto, life was beautifully chaotic. I had the opportunity to experience multiple cultures. Not to mention, different tattoos – from praying hands and teardrops to black cats and ringed out fingers. I also had the choice to live two very different lifestyles. Neither was a perfect match, but both presented a very strong sense of three of the most motivating forces in my work today: community, history and our obligations to the other I chose to be actively involved in black rights and pan-Africanism movements. At a rally, a chant started. Based on the old Negro spiritual they sang, ‘Go Down Moses…’ Moses, it struck me, was my family. The liberation struggle was a historic, Jewish venture.…
