When S. Denice Newton made a trip to Zimbabwe, on the continent of Africa in 2011, she didn't know that it would profoundly impact her life and change her focus. For several weeks she was able to see up close and personal, the devastation of the AIDS/HIV pandemic that is destroying black people in Zimbabwe. Additionally, economic devastation and political turmoil is leaving the people little to hope for. After returning to the United States, Denice focused on the crime, violence, AIDS/HIV crisis, racial intolerance, and other ills that are destroying black people in America. Why is the black community in such dire straits? Why are black youth dying in inner city streets every day? Why are preventable diseases still claiming lives of black Americans? Why is racial profiling seemingly a part of the standard operating procedure in law enforcement? She has concluded that the long-lasting effects of the Transatlantic Slave Trade yet remain because the souls of black people were lost in the chilly, dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean en route to America. It is critical that a diving expedition is conducted to retrieve the souls of black people if the next generation is to have any chance of success or survival.
