About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

Steve Harvey Keeps on Keeping on ... With Youth Mentoring Weekend in Los Angeles

Comments (36)


Last week, Steve Harvey may have been the subject of much scuttlebutt after his ex-wife, Mary Shackleford, released scandalous YouTube videos, but the multimedia kingpin is undeterred and continuing on his mission to mentor young people.

The best-selling author, radio personality and 'Family Feud' host will hold a special Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men for 100 Los Angeles-area teenage boys at the University of Southern California.

This program was created by the 'Straight Talk, No Chaser' author to bring guidance to young men who don't have fathers, empowering them with the principles of manhood and dream building.

"The mentoring weekend is vital in LA," Harvey told BlackVoices.com today. "This is where it all really started for me in radio. Remembering our base and recognizing the need for mentoring worldwide and, especially in this special weekend in L.A., we extend the brand of mentoring to single mothers. We extend our helping hand by leaving the young men with a snapshot of manhood that they previously may not have had."




The festivities will be held at USC's Davidson Conference Center, where 100 teenage boys will share in life-affirming activities, including the "You Can Be Me" session on careers, a session on image, a sneaker-design workshop and chess challenge. Harvey will offer powerful words and lessons about manhood, too.

Other special guests, including TV veteran Stan Lathan, actor Lamman Rucker, BET personality Terrence J and fellow comedic icon Cedric the Entertainer, will share inspiration, insight and important tools during the three-day weekend.

Attendants were selected from personal essay submissions. All are ages 13 to 18, in grades 9 through 12, and from single-mother households in the Los Angeles area.

The program is the cornerstone of Harvey's community activities, which seek to transform and empower teenage boys to build the future and the life they want.

The "Original King of Comedy" will host his annual Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend in Dallas during Father's Day Weekend and also host Regional Mentoring Weekends in New Orleans, Chicago and New York this year.
