Steve Harvey believes young men from fatherless homes need more mentors and is taking to the New Beginnings Church of Chicago to find some.
Harvey, the 56-year-old comedian, host and best-selling author, is leading The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation in hosting a Steve Harvey Mentoring Campaign event at the church Nov 14. Harvey will be joined by outspoken Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church, who has spoken out about helping the troubled Chicago youth rife with gang violence.
With the help of Brooks and his church, Harvey hopes to recruit mentors to help young Chicago men in need who do not have fathers in their homes, according to a release from The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation. The event will feature a discussion about the issues faced in the community where the entertainer hopes to inspire people become mentors in the Chicago metro area.
Harvey will follow up his mentor recruitment day at the church by taking to Chicago State University from Nov. 15-17 where he will host 100 young men in grades eight through 12. At the University, the young men who applied to take part in the event will be taught the principles of manhood while participating in educational and physical activities.
This is not the first time Harvey has used his time and energy to mentor young men. The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation hosted 100 young men from single parent households in the Detroit metro area with team building, physical fitness and educational programs last September .
“We want these young men to gain an experience that is not taught in a classroom with real talk and genuine issues of everyday life. We want to empower them in a positive way with a refreshing environment and open their imaginations beyond what they already know,” Harvey said of his mentoring experience in Detroit, in a statement released by his foundation. “With the opportunity to take part in a mentoring program focused on their future potential and dreams, these young men will walk away knowing that no dreams are too big and the tools to take charge of achieving them.”
David and Tamela Mann release first episode, what do you think?
“Can you believe that the Mann’s actually did not want to do a reality show at first because they felt Reality Shows always feed on the negative aspects of people’s life?
David: We really didn’t want to do it at first. And not knocking any other reality shows, but we just didn’t think we had the drama for a reality show. So we were like, “No, because we don’t fuss and argue with each other and go crazy.” So we said, “If you can let us resolve issues in the family and show positive love, then we’ll do one.” We just want to show people that you can have a great relationship between husband and wife.”

Meet Shawn – The Artist
Shawn Yancy is an award winning Washington, DC News Anchor and Artist.
She grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana surrounded by a creative and adventurous family. From an early age, her parents exposed her to the arts and encouraged her creativity. They taught her “if the dream is big enough, the facts don’t count”, and she’s been pursuing her dreams ever since.
Shawn’s passion for visual arts and performance led her to pursue a career in broadcast journalism, but a paint brush and canvas were never far from her hand.
Shawn enjoys working with a variety of mediums to achieve a truly unique experience.
“In my world as a news journalist, my life is black and white, there’s not a lot of room for opinion. We report the facts, the news of the day and tell people’s stories. My art allows me to escape the box with vibrant colors, paint brushes and my imagination to express my opinions and tell my own stories.
Like most artists, I’ve been drawing, painting, and re-assembling anything that wasn’t nailed down since I was a small child; and things haven’t changed much now that I’m all grown up. When I work with my hands painting and creating, I’m reminded there are no limits or boundaries! I don’t believe in coloring inside the lines.”
Contemporary is all about contrasts, but I also strive to achieve a harmony and balance. My paintings are a mixture of colorful moods and emotions ranging from peace and chaos to pleasure and pain. I like to take my time expressing each emotion in my pieces.
When people look at my work, I hope they’re able to get lost in their own emotions and find a place that’s comforting to them.
Everyday life and its many colors inspire me. I find inspiration in sunrises, sunsets, the ocean, the beach, rain drops on flower petals and in people who make me happy.
