We believe BLACK men will gain a sense of pride and identity through the willingness of “SESA WO SUBAN,” meaning “I transform my life” and “I change my character.” This is known as an Adinkra symbol signifying personal reflection and Keperah (transformation), which is also part of the decolonization process to encourage our brothas to return to Sankofa.
Systemic intergenerational trauma has continued to negatively impact BLACK men under the MAAFA over the past 500 years. In 2022, MBK International launched a new initiative where our brothas can access resources as a “CALL TO ACTION” to combat MENTACIDE and restore their Afrikan mind.
My Brotha’s Keeper (MBK) International is an online Afrikan-centered institution that provides resoures to support BLACK men on their journey of decolonisation to reshape their mental, physical, spiritual and financial well-being.
Our resources include: chatroom consultations, tutorials, self-care tips/advice, interactive forums, workshops, action plan development strategies, discounts on products and access to our BLACK men’s wellness directory.
Each registered member can also book a session with our international service providers, who are qualified to further support you through your stages of development.
Each SESA WO SUBAN membership has three tiers as follows:
1) MBK (King)
2) MBK (Warrior)
3) MBK (God)
“If one makes an observation, they must take action to co-create the SOULution.”

IN THE MIRROR PROJECT
Purpose of this program is to encourage self-reflection towards #HEALING, as a tool to navigate black men in the position of identifying their ‘trauma-blockages’.
- GROUP SESSIONS – This will be introduced through role play and creating scenario to help offload the unnecessary baggage that negatively impacts their mental and emotional well-being.
- INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS – Using a step-by-step action plan to keep an updated record of the progression made from the program and to assist in what needs to be improved .
The Man In The Mirror Project framework also focuses on ‘The UNspoken #TRUTH behind the black man’s abuse.’ Examining the demonisation of BLACK men through systematic racism and how it discriminates against our brothas mental health globally.
This program is suited for brothas age 18 years upwards, who are willing to stay committed by establishing a relationship with their personal wellbeing, as a long-term investment in order for the joureny of cleansing to be effective.
Iwosan Agbara means ‘HEALING POWER’ in Yoruba –
The healing begins once our brothas are prepared to face the man in the mirror.
