BRONX NEWS: Chirlane McCray rolls out mental health program to help black men


The city will partner with fraternities and service organizations to offer more mental health help to black men, First Lady Chirlane McCray said Monday as she rolled out a program dubbed “Brothers Thrive.”


“People often feel more comfortable talking about these topics when they’re among people who look like them, people who they feel some kinship or affinity with,” McCray said. “It’s just easier to relax and know that their words will have meaning and validity and credibility.”


Members of the organizations — Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., and 100 Black Men — will receive mental health first aid training from the city, which they can then use to reach out to those in their community who might be facing challenges.


McCray said she’d seen such challenges in her own home, where her father was emotionally reserved.

“Even on Christmas Day, there just wasn’t much joy in our home,” she said. But after taking a mental health first aid course, she continued, “I realized that my father was probably suffering from depression.”


Deputy Mayor Phil Thompson said black men face “distinct and diverse challenges”— including living a life that he said is often “over-policed,” which can lead to trauma.


“I had a student who spent eight years in the Marines in Iraq, and he said the PTSD was worse where he came from than in Iraq,” Thompson said.


The city previously launched Sisters Thrive, which focuses on black women. McCray was joined by the Rev. Michael Walrond, Congressman Gregory Meeks and representatives from the fraternities and service groups at the announcement Monday.

Newly Tooled adidas Yeezy 700 in “Utility Black” Has Emerged

Less than 24 hours after Kanye West revealed new iterations of the Yeezy Boost 350 v2, Yeezy 500 and the upcoming Yeezy basketball shoe, the often unseen, newly re-tooled Yeezy 700 appears in a “Utility Black” colorway.

With a varying midsole that tracks wider than the original, the sloped upper of this 700 is slightly more slanted as opposed to the retail debut. A combination of suede and leather fabrication adorn the modern-day “dad shoe” which comes retro-fitted in a weathered aesthetic.

Kanye West has been on a tear lately and it’s poised to be another huge year for brand Yeezy. Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming adidas Yeezy 700 “Utility Black” release.

Air Jordan 1 “Clay Green” Expands “Black Toe” Inspired Collection This May

As reported earlier this year, Jordan Brand plans to produce a slew of Air Jordan 1s based on the foundational “Black Toe” OG. Of that variety there have already been several, with the most noteworthy being the “Bred Toe” followed by the “Art Basel” Pack.

Starting in May, though, three more colorways will also follow suit. The first of the trio is the Air Jordan 1 “Clay Green” iteration set to drop on May 1, 2018. A relatively dark green shade appears in lieu of the customary Varsity Red placement. The hue also adorns a premium suede coating as opposed to the traditional tumbled leather construction. Black leather wraps the toe and eyestay to reinforce the classic aesthetic.

Two more “Black Toe” inspired colorways are set to succeed the “Clay Green” edition. Fans of the 1985 silhouette can also anticipate “Yellow Ochre” and “Blue Moon” colorways in the near future.
