BLACK FATHER FIGHTS FOR PATERNAL RIGHTS TO PREVENT THE INTERNATIONAL ABDUCTION OF HIS DAUGHTER

Brevard County, FL -- Christopher Baylor is a family man. A black American male raised in a two-parent Christian home, he had every intention of continuing in this tradition with his own family and children. Like many, he was seeking a soulmate, looking to raise children and spend the rest of his life with his chosen life partner.

Never did he expect his path to include marriage fraud, pleading for the annulment of his marriage, filing for divorce, a child custody battle, or the possibility of the international "legalized" abduction of his only beloved daughter Aaliyah, whom he affectionately calls 'Bee.'

Fatherhood had been an event he'd anticipated for a good portion of his life. The birth of Aaliyah 'Bee' was monumental for Christopher. He took care of all Ayano Eto's medical needs and expenses, looking forward to doing all he could to ensure their child had the best life possible. And when that meant taking on the added responsibility of becoming the primary caregiver, he happily obliged, handling Bee's day-to-day care, meals, and the medical needs of their precious child up until the day Ayano Eto took his daughter from him. Christopher Baylor had become a 'left behind parent.'

ABANDONED IN A DUMPSTER AT BIRTH, THIS 29-YEAR OLD BLACK ENTREPRENEUR NOW OWNS A $62 MILLION TELECOMMUNICATIONS FIRM

Nationwide  29-year old Freddie Figgers was abandoned in a dumpster at birth and was adopted when he was just two days old by two loving parents. He is now the founder and CEO of Figgers Wireless, a telecommunications firm valued at over $62.3 million dollars, that you may have never heard of.

Born a genius

Freddie got his first computer when he was 9-years old. It was broken when he received it, but he quickly figured out how to make it fully operational. That was the start of his innovative future. Later as a child, after learning that his Dad had Alzheimer's, he invented a shoe for him that had a GPS tracker and a two-way communicator that he sold for millions.


He got his first job at the age of 12 as a computer technician, and by age 15, he had already started his own cloud computing services.

COMPUTER SCIENCE PH.D/ PROFESSOR HELPS BLACK WOMEN AND GIRLS BECOME UNAPOLOGETICALLY DOPE IN TECH

Charlotte, NC --  Black women and girls, who are grossly underrepresented in tech degrees and careers, now have a blueprint for successfully navigating the field. In Unapologetically Dope: Lessons for Black Women and Girls on Surviving and Thriving in the Tech Field, Dr. Nicki Washington provides candid advice on not only excelling in this diversity-starved field, but also remaining one's most authentic self in the face of challenges ranging from marginalization to self-doubt.

Black women comprise less than 1% of all computing graduates each year. While nationwide efforts to increase diversity focus on learning computing fundamentals such as programming, Unapologetically Dope discusses the unspoken lessons that aren’t taught in classes or textbooks, including:

* Assembling one's tribe
* Understanding the twice-as-good rule
* Prioritizing mental, emotional, and physical health
* Asking for help
* Tackling imposter syndrome
* The importance of "keeping receipts"
* Understanding one's worth
* Lifting while climbing
* Owning and trusting one's dopeness
