Chronicles of a Ghetto Rose with Artist Moise Morancy

morancyMoise Morancy is a 21 year old American actor, director, hip-hop recording artist, poet, writer and activist from Brooklyn, New York. He’s best known for his acting roles/projects and his hardcore, thought provoking, uncensored rap music. A tough exterior and with good reason, he often expresses that it derives from pain and hardship. He likes to say “without change, one cannot grow” and the ability to do both are some of his greatest attributes.

Who he is begins with his mother. She is an educated woman who came to America for a better life but her goals were derailed by a man who knowingly gave her the AIDS virus, that man – is his father. In the early 90’s, his sick mother was abandoned by his father and left homeless as she gave birth to Moise. Luckily, he was born without the disease. To say God is good would be an understatement! Though God is great, the road to success has not been easy. He truly believes it’s been difficult for a reason, to teach him the importance of family and love. It has given him a purpose in life. And that purpose is to be an entertainer!

It was our privilege to spend an hour taking a deep dive with Moise into his background, his career, therapy, and his advocacy. Please enjoy his interview below:

Furthering a “Trauma-Enlightened” Conversation

dangriffinDan Griffin, an author and international expert on men and trauma, has a bone to pick with the behavioral healthcare system, and he’s not afraid of how controversial it may sound. “I don’t think it’s men who are failing treatment; I think it’s we who are failing them,” he said recently in an interview with Kristin Walker on Mental Health News Radio—one that proved provocative in its candid discussion of gender, the danger of man rules’ rigidity, and the concept of conscious masculinity.
