With only 21 days remaining until the 2020 Martin Luther King Jr Day Mental Health and Literacy Summit, young mother, producing actress, HISD Endorsed (2010) author and motivational speaker, and community activist, Brandalyn Gill refuses to give up her fight to put on the 2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Day Mental Health and Literacy Summit. Her daughter, Sinai Gill, is only 5 years old and has been removed from two schools just to return to her zoned school to wait up to 90 days to be tested for special education classes for kindergarten. She has no diagnosis, like many other children, and is incredibly smart but this is the only option Texas has within the public school system. “ … It’s a hard pill to swallow to realize the lack of community on these efforts … I used to wonder what it was like to have your child kidnapped or trafficked, wondering when they would return home - if ever.
Now, I know how that feels because I’m looking at my daughter every day but I am not looking at the Sinai I used to know … trauma and **** have possessed her mind … and it’s sad that nobody cares” Gill says in a recent Youtube video, posted in efforts to continue to galvanize others for her cause. She recently took to the Nation of Islam’s student Regional Minister Abdul Haleem Muhammad of the number 45 mosque of Third Ward, just miles from where the event will be held. She was chosen to speak on KPFT Radio’s “Connect the Dots” Segment alongside Assistant Minister Eric Muhammad on the First Day of Kwanza, holding no truths back.
“Our President had to have a mental examination when already inaugurated into office. That should tell the world something, right? I mean, we are up to 1 in 4 people not being mentally sound OR being able to read … Children are being diagnosed with ADHD left and right when truly their little neurons are working at such an accelerated rate trying to process trauma. There should be no question that they are hyper active”, Gill protests. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America states that 1 in 40 adults in America have anxiety, which symptoms are quite close to those of hyper-activity. “We need to connect our own dots as a society. The world is our assignment. Are we really going to just sit back and let our children fail … regardless of their demographics or social class; this is bad business for America!” Gill and the People’s Family Workshop, the fiscal sponsor of the event, ask all that care for the future of children and families, alike, to come forward and become a platinum level sponsor or just donate a small sum.
