Youth Council

As you know, National Vice Chairman Kenneth Broadous is leading the charge on developing the Broadous Family's Youth Council. At the 2018 Reunion, the youth exhibited so much excitement for a youth council as they expressed their desire to be involved.

So, let us help make that happen!

To that end, please forward names of young people in your respective branches; no worries about whether they are interested or not. The goal is to involve our family's young people and help them learn about their very rich heritage.

Please send names and contact information or if questions, contact Kenneth:

Thank you, Bernardean Broadous

Grandma Mattie Birthday Tributes

Hello Family,

As we celebrate the Birthday Month of Grandma Mattie, let us take a moment to honor Aunt Jean, Aunt Ernestine, Cousin Judson, Cousin Opal, and all of our Elders, for the wonderful legacy they have bestowed upon us. I pray God will continue to bless and prosper them richly in every area of their lives. 

As a tribute to the amazing woman that Grandma Mattie was, I would like to extend KUDOS to three of our amazing young sister cousins, Natalie Smith-Dryer, MA, LPC, (the daughter of Cousin Carolyn Smith, and Granddaughter of Aunt Lee Quency); CeCe Olisa, Social Influencer and Girl Boss, (the daughter of Cousins Henry and Francine Oputa, and Granddaughter of Aunt Rosa and Uncle H.T.); and Rabiyah Karim-Kincey aka Rah, Actor (my daughter, and Granddaughter of Aunt Jean and Uncle John). 

Cousin Natalie is a remarkable licensed mental health professional, who in my opinion should have her own talk radio and television show. Natalie shared with us during the 2018 reunion, opening our eyes to a variety of mental health issues that can affect our everyday lives. I tip my hat off to Natalie for her current information on Sexual Assault.

I have fallen in love with Cousin CeCe’s YouTube blogs, where she shares her life as an open book with thousands of people. As a prominent Social Influencer, CeCe is among the select few that have been invited to give TED talks. This is a really big deal. I found CeCe’s talk to be educational, enlightening, and inspiring.

I encourage you to view her talk on YouTube, TED Talk by CeCe Olisa, (

Cousin Rah’s speech, “The Waters Brought Us,” that she performed at our 2018 reunion, still warms my heart. As a talented actor and creative thinker, Rah beautifully captured the essence of Grandma Mattie. If you videotaped or recorded the speech at the reunion, you may want to view or listen to it again in celebration of Grandma Mattie’s Birthday, which was January 10th.

Happy New Year and Blessings Family.
