Young Lions LLC

We provide inspirational public speaking, youth mentoring, and ancient African history seminars. A retired educator and compassionate individual, founder Marry Morris has dedicated her life to serving and encouraging people, especially those often overlooked. .



Young Lions: Challenged To Live Free  involves the flawed criminal justice system and how the war on drugs and the mass incarceration of black males is based on enriching a segment of the population. Someone must inform black males that a written record of incarceration will follow them for the remainder of their lives.

 It’s filled with 400 years’ worth of ancient African culture that is rarely—if ever—taught in our school systems. It’s filled with a lot of the topics and information that we cover in our seminars, speaking, and mentoring.

African American people need to understand the value of courtship, marriage, and children.  We must make parenting a priority.  Parents must design a household where educational opportunities are created and celebrated for their children.
