Are you ready to take a deep dive into one of the most powerful stories of resilience and advocacy? Join us for an inspiring episode with Kenneth Rogers, Jr., a male survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Kenny endured years of abuse, depression, and isolation before he was able to begin his journey of healing.
After finding success in speech and debate, Kenny turned to writing as an outlet for his pain, producing his memoir, Raped Black Male, and the How To Heal Your Superhero Series, which discusses various coping mechanisms related to superheroes such as workaholism, hypervigilance, and so on. Kenny has gone on to become a powerful advocate in the fight against child abuse.
Listen as we talk with Kenny about his incredible journey through trauma, what he is most grateful for today, and more. Hear from me and Candace as we share our own stories of survival while offering ways that we can all get involved in making a difference.
