Question for Mr. Johns on the My Brother's Keeper Initiative:
  1. Will the organizations who have been doing the work with Black men and boys for the last 10, 15, 20 years be included in this initiative.  Few have been mentioned so far.
  2. Who are the elders from the Black community involved with this initiative?  
  3. Who will control the release and flow of monies and proposals for this initiative? For example, who will make the decisions in Chicago?
  4. Will this initiative connect to the work that has already been done with Black men and boys, or will it try to create a totally new initiative?
