Later that year I worked on Stephen Cannell’s successful series “US Customs Classified”.  I built solid relationships with many television / film industry movers and shakers and started producing my own music and film projects.  I was introduced to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Music Team who were all ghost producers for the hit show.  In the late 80’s, streaming came onto the scene, so a few partners and I joined together to build a television/streaming portal company I used my marketing and business knowledge to helped build their brand to 170,000.000 viewership.  I worked as Program Manager / Lead Editor / Music Supervisor / Lead Control Room Tech / Archives Administration Director / Executive Producer and Director; I mentored and taught all the young talented producers and editors in pre/post and live production.

OBBA BABATUNDE

Director NoBullying2020 / An American actor of stage and screen.

Obba Babatundé’s performing ethics reach back into the storied days of entertainment when performers’ careers were dependent on their ability to deliver anything the audience wanted to see and hear! Obba has appeared in more than seventeen stage productions; thirty theatrical films; sixty made-for-television movies; starred in many specials and two primetime series plus dozens of other singing and dancing appearances. It is easy to understand why Obba is often referred to as one of the busiest actors in Hollywood.

True to form, 2016 was an exceptionally busy year for Obba. He received the Daytime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series” as well as the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the PVIFF. Obba also completed filming three primetime series: CBS’ “Madam Secretary,” the highly-anticipated SHOWTIME series, “I’m Dying Up Here,” NETFLIX’S acclaimed series “Dear White People” and is presently in production with the feature film “LAbyrinth”.

Babatundé recently appeared in a recurring role on the acclaimed drama series “Kingdom,” and the high-profile Amazon drama series “Hand of God,” as the beguiling “Bishop Bruce Congdon.” TV audiences loved Obba as the wealthy father of two half-sisters in the now syndicated television comedy series “Half & Half,” as well as appearances on “The Young and the Restless,”Boston Legal,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NCIS,” “Cold Case,” “Strong Medicine,” and even as the man who taught Joey of “Friends” to dance (“Jazz Hands”). His Emmy-nominated performance in the HBO movie ” Miss Evers’ Boys,” his NAACP Image Award-nominated performance in the HBO movie “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge,” his Ovation Award nomination and NAACP Image Award win as “Best Actor” for his role as “Sarge” in “A Soldiers Play”, and his Tony Award nomination for his role as “C.C. White,” in the original Broadway cast of “Dreamgirls” are some of Obba’s most cherished achievements. Some of his other noted credits include the coveted NAACP “Trailblazer Award”, Hal Prince’s “Grind” and “Timbuktu!” and his critically-acclaimed performance of “Billy Flynn” in the Broadway musical “Chicago.” Obba originated the role of “Jelly Roll Morton” in the world premiere of “Jelly’s Last Jam” and no one can forget his stellar performance in the Broadway-bound Musical “Sammy,” for which he won “Best Actor” for his portrayal of his entertainment mentor Sammy Davis, Jr. Some of his feature film appearances include: “The Celestine Prophecy,” “Material Girls,” “After the Sunset,” “The Manchurian Candidate,” “The Notebook,” “John Q,” “How High,” “That Thing You Do!,” “Philadelphia,” “The Last Fall,” “If I Tell You I Have To Kill You,” “The Fallen Faithful,” “Trapped,” “Tension” and “Kinky.”

He has often portrayed authority figures, such as a recurring guest-starring role as a high school principal on Dawson’s Creek, an appearance as a judge in a two-part episode of Any Day Now, and as the father of the main characters on Half & Half. He also played Harvard college Dean Cain in the movie How High, as well as the role of Willie Long in the movie Life, the pivotal role of Lamar, the hotel concierge in the film That Thing You Do!, co-starred as an attorney in Philadelphia, as a SWAT captain in John Q, as a senator in the 2004 reprise of The Manchurian Candidate, and in Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups he played Mayor Denny. He also played the director in season 3 of Friends in an episode titled “The One with All the Jealousy”. Other TV shows he has had recurring roles on include The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Chicago Hope, and Karen Sisco. He played a famous producer known as Gordy Berry on two episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In the 1998 miniseries, The Temptations, he played the founder of Motown Records Berry Gordy. Obba’s extensive animation career includes Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike and Disney Infinity 3.0[1] as well as Conroy in Rocket Power. In the animated feature The Wild Thornberrys Movie Obba voiced the character of Boko, and in the 2016 Air Bud Entertainment movie Pup Star, he is the hilarious soul-singing Basset Hound, Big Ears.

Babatundé’s acting talents are always coupled with his behind-the-scenes skills. He was co-producer and director of “Oscar’s Black Odyssey,” co-producer of “Dorothy Dandridge An American Beauty,” and co-producer of “TV in Black The First 50 Years.” He is associate producer of the horror classic film “Voodoo Dolls” and executive producer of “Journey.” Most recently, Obba directed and co-stars with Katt Williams in the Lionsgate Home Entertainment feature film “American Bad Boy” and produced and directed the multi-award-winning short film “Clarissa’s Gift. ” Babatundé also directed a highly-acclaimed version of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls and co-authored, directed and produced the critically-acclaimed “In The Blink of An Eye.”

DR. MERIL  S. PLATZER

Director NoBullying2020 / NEUROLOGY SPECIALIST

Dr Meril Platzer. has been a Neurologist for over 30 years in the Los Angeles area. A single mother of three, one with special needs Autism and a younger son who recently attempted to commit suicide. My journey has not been easy…
When I entered Medical School only 10% of the class were women. We had to prove ourselves by obtaining better grades as well as the ridicule of why we wanted to be a doctor. Discrimination existed with the patients and families assuming we were nurses or served other jobs in the hospital setting.  Over time, the climate of the medical world changed with more women and minorities entering the field of medicine. The doors opened slowly.

I was one of the first female Neurologists in the San Fernando Valley and have survived successfully in the community 32 years.    Recently I experienced the anguish of being a mother of a child who wanted to take his own life. The pain of a child’s suffering is unbearable.  The treatment of a family member in the hospital setting was below the standard of care.  Fighting for my child’s survival and ensuring good care was a challenge. I have learned to be an advocate for my patients and used my expertise and resilience to obtain the best care I could for my son.  My passion is excellent patient care but more importantly respect for those patients and families.

I’m a survivor!  I maintained a solo practice as a Neurologist, single mother of three children, advocate for the American Academy of Neurology, knocking on the doors of Congressmen and Senators in Washington DC and an expert in the field of dementia especially Alzheimer’s dementia locally and on a more national level.  Early detection and quality of the Alzheimer’s patient are important and what I strive for.  I have been an expert for Alzheimer’s patients and their families including the Donald Sterling trial.  It is not always easy to be in this position and at times have been criticized and bullied to change my position which I never succumbed to.

Perseverance, Passion, and Time Leads to Success!

Todd Trites

Director NoBullying2020 / Real Estate professional

I was introduced to the CEO/ Founder Rasheed Lateef of NoBullying2020 in early 2019. It was after that introduction that I was personally committed to the foundations vision to eradicate Bullying from our Society.

Growing up, it seemed that I was the one who was helping others that were experiencing some form of bullying because morally, that was the right thing to do. I started more as a referee or mediator but it morphed into a role of an educator and a leader.

My formal education: BSc 81’ (MAU), BBA 84’ (UNB), O.D.96’ (IAU) and UCLA Extension (Real Estate).

The Practical work experience: (10 years) Corporate Management with an Oil Company, (15 years) in Health Care at private and group practice as an Eye Doctor. For the past (10 years) I have been helping my clients reach their financial goals through Residential and Commercial Real Estate transactions.

My philanthropic passions have reached to many foundations and organizations. However the Shiner’s Children’s Hospital, MEND, and Hope of the Valley helping those who are less fortunate were the most rewarding. Volunteering has also trended locally towards coaching and mentoring, though schools and special events.

Rick Seamen

Director NoBullying2020 / Hollywood Stunt Driving School

My name is Rick Seaman I have been one of Hollywood’s top stunt drivers since 1968. In 1997, I opened the Motion Picture Driving Clinic Inc. where, since then, I have trained over 2,500 up and coming stunt people on the art of stunt driving.  The school is the only stunt driving school recognized by the film and TV industry in all of North America.  In 2004, I included a class for problematic teenage drivers to help them become safer, defensive, undistracted and in-full-control drivers. This program has worked with over 500 teen drivers with great success.  Then in 2013, I, a disabled Vietnam combat veteran, embarked on a training program to rehabilitate wounded soldiers suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) whose drivers’ licenses were revoked. The program titled “Back Behind The Wheel” offers 2 and 3 day programs where the students are able to feel comfortable and confident behind the wheel.  My class itinerary starts with basic in-car familiarization, slow speed driving, then working up to traffic speeds. As the class advances, the students are put into various stress situations and skill building drills. My training formula, I found this progressive, step-by-step approach to be very effective. “Personal attention in a private and controlled environment has been the key to our success”.  Traumatic brain injury is classified in three levels; mild, moderate and severe.  Most of my students are moderate, although in 2016, he trained a young man who was rated at severe, a rating that had never seen one with this impairment manage to get their driving privileges restored. I guess we beat the stat sheet with this young man, as he is now driving with a full, unrestricted driver’s’ license.” (video available).  Regardless of whether these folks do get re-licensed or not, the most important result is that they get an opportunity to feel the joy and freedom of driving again. This creates hope for them, rather than despair. For our returning war veterans with TBI, this is the least that we can do.” I met Rasheed Lateef through Dr. Meril Platzer and she wanted us to meet because she thought it would be a great match. I loved what Rasheed Lateef / Global Content Media was doing to help kids and the veterans who were being bullied when they returned from service. Rasheed invited me to his event on November 30th I saw a man who had all the right people gathered together who believed in their campaign like their slogan “BeThe Voice To Help Stop Bullying” I Got Chill Bumps!!!  GCM is making a real difference in our communities and all around the nation. I said I’m In.  My company will continues to address Veterans’ needs through strategic partnerships with other foundations, community and federal partners and will continue to serve our veterans proudly.

Dr. Margaret Brown

Director NoBullying2020 / Minister /Humanitarian

Margaret Brown-Hurst sets an example as a woman who has devoted her life to help the less fortunate. After the tragic death of her grandson, Lamajze Donnell-Brown, to a serious birth defect Margaret became determined to assist others who also must cope with the misfortune of a birth defect. She gave up her career to focus her full-time attention to this goal. Her commitment has resulted in the establishment of The Lamajze Gastroschisis Memorial Foundation and The Lamajze Birth Defect and Fetal Health Institute, both centered in San Diego, California.

Lamajze was born with Gastroschisis, an abdominal wall defect of unknown origin, and underwent eleven major surgeries at Children’s Hospital of San Diego before succumbing after little more than one year of life. Margaret supported her son and daughter-in-law in their grief as well as dealing with her own. But instead of cursing the darkness Dr. Brown-Hurst has undertaken to light a candle that will be bright enough to light the world. Shortly after Lamajze’s death Margaret decided to begin work on creating an organization that would contribute to breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of birth defects as well as improve the quality of life for those children and families afflicted with birth defects. Her plans include assistance to families worldwide in locating and accessing specialized care and support. Her son, Jason, has become the CEO and president of the Lamajze Foundation.

Dr. Brown-Hurst’s effectiveness in achieving her vision was demonstrated earlier in her career when she founded the Worldwide Crusade for Peace in 1993. In this capacity the U.S. government sent her to Russia and other communist countries as a “world peace ambassador” in 1998. In the course of this work Margaret has been privileged to interact with notable persons such as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Camillia Sadat, and the daughter of Nelson Mandela.

Margaret was raised in the San Francisco Bay area where she was a fashion model. She obtained a degree in nursing and also attended the Calvary Bible Institute. She received a Ph.D. in Theology from Bell Grove Theological Seminary.

She has been the recipient of several awards of recognition including the “100 Heroes” award from the California Black Sports Hall of Fame and the Humanitarian Award from the Southern California Motion Picture Council. Dr. Brown-Hurst has been in Dayton Ohio for the past two years and there received an American Red Cross Medical Hero Award and was honored as a Women of Influence from the YWCA. In May she will be recognized by Essence Magazine for her accomplishments.

I truly see life as a challenge for changing human lives.

Lyrikalsol was born in Los Angeles, CA,
Lyrikalsol became fond of music as a little baby , rockin’ to beats of jazz , soul, and gospel . She would be the little girl rocking the mic at the age of 7 to the age she’s at now. But little do so many know, Lyrikals passion for music didn’t just come from nowhere. It all began from her bloodline to school teachers. Her father and grandfathers were solid with playing and singing classics, and two of her favorite artists is Luther Vandross and Anita Baker. She also looks up to Erykah Badu, who is her favorite artist.

She is the CEO of her own record label, producer, manager, singer, rapper,, songwriter, photographer, etc. She was strongly influenced by her mother to own her own company because of the leadership she showed in the life when she lived .

Bullying in todays world comes in many forms and its sad . Working with young children makes me view things completely different than I did before.  Some of my students deal with bullying and I then see the hurt in their eyes. Bullying is dear to me only because I dealt with it in grade school myself.  I was one to cry and wish that I was able to stand up for myself in a matter . Now that I have matured as a woman , I have joined NoBully2020 and am proud to stand with anti-bullying because its not okay.

NoBully2020 is not just a foundation or company , it’s another form of Family. We are SAYING STOP BULLYING.
It is sad that children are thinking of hurting themselves because of this powerful thing called BULLYING
