Black Life Superheroes ( BLSH ).

Urban America must save itself. Leading the charge of self-salvation are those I often call, " Black life superheroes, " or BLSH. Some, like myself and Dangerman, the Urban Superhero
, are members of the broader real life superhero or RLSH movement.

Most Black life superheroes aren't RLSH, but do hit very mean streets stopping crime and helping hostage residents. BLSH icon Walter Gildersleeve, the Detroit Batman
, has an armed street patrol named Detroit Street Watchers. They board up vacant structures and patrol school zones to deter rape and robbery. His You Tube channel should be required viewing for anyone interested in BLSH advocacy.

Organizations like Detroit 300; Mad Dads; Concerned Black Men; Peace Keepers and Cease Fire are standard bearers of the Black life superhero group model where urban stakeholders mediate potentially deadly disputes and mentor on troubled concrete instead of inside comfortable suites.

New Orleans number one crimefighter & mentor Bro Al Mims

is a Black life superhero pioneer whose daily anti crime advocacy and mentorship through the Fatherhood Roundtable are a wonder to behold. Most BLSH don't wear costumes but all shoulder the challenge of helping ignored people find their " super " in the worst neighborhoods. Black life superheroes work to save urban America from the inside out. It'll take superheroic dedication to accomplish this feat! No costumes are required but dedication is demanded.

Will you be the next Black life superhero in your community? #BLSH.
