BUSTA’S PERSON OF THE WEEK 

By Busta Brown

We know there is a need for black male mentors in the African-American community for our young people; retired Senior Special Agent Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr. understands this very well, and he’s using his nearly 30 years of experience in law enforcement to do something about it.

His programs, Surviving the Stop and Surviving the Shield, which focus on bridging the gap between community and law enforcement, are used by law enforcement divisions, churches and community organizations throughout the country. His Beyond Midnight programs, which illuminate specific tenants to enhance leadership and overcome adversity, are used by colleges and universities, corporate entities and individuals.

I asked Kimbrough why are mentoring programs so important for black males. “If it wasn’t for Mo Locus and Jerry Dunlap, I don’t know where I would be. If you don’t know where you’re going and how to get there, you’ll stay lost.”

During my interview with Kimbrough, we talked about his most important leadership role; Fatherhood. He was very open with the mistakes he’d made as a father. He also shared a personal situation that caused embarrassment and heartbreak for him, his family and youngest son, and the hard work every man should put in to repair the relationships with their children. I asked Bobby the difference between a rich man and poor man, “How they choose to use their brain. How they think.”

Kimbrough’s expert analysis and words of inspiration can be heard on television programs and radio broadcasts throughout the country. Bobby’s keen instinct and strategic approach can guide you to rapid results professionally and personally. His one-on-one program The Special Agent Experience for C-Level Executives, Professional Athletes and High Performing Entrepreneurs uses his expert skills to drive even higher achievement, superior success and astonishing results.

As an African-American male in law enforcement for nearly 30 years, Kimbrough knows emphatically that there is a need for togetherness in this country. As a retired Senior Special Agent with the U.S. Department of Justice, he saw firsthand the debilitating fear in people’s eyes after experiencing such horrific events as the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks. Having worked in all 50 of the United States and abroad, he witnessed the devastating impact of poverty that causes people to do the unthinkable. Bobby has been in the trenches with people from all walks of life who fall prey and victim to the trap of drugs, crime and violence. He uses his vast knowledge and experience as a media contributor and analyst.

He is the author of “Surviving the Stop: Change the Atmosphere, Change the Outcome” – a brilliant book which serves as the blueprint to facilitate dialogue and foster change in our society. Mr. Kimbrough is also the author of “Beyond Midnight: Helping you Make It To Daybreak, Quotes and Words of Wisdom to Strengthen and Empower.” To book Bobby: Bobby@nullBobbyKimbroughSpeaks.com.
