[TV] Tonight: Iyanla Vanzant attempts to Fix A Black Man’s Heart –


Wait a minute. What kinda of magic wand does Iyanla plan to wave to make this happen?? Well… whatever it is and whatever it takes … I’m all for it!! Being a SUPER advocate of BLACK LOVE and the conversations that need to take place to get it back on track, I do understand that there’s a great deal of  healing that needs to take places between both the black man and the black woman. But starting with the man (who seems to set the tone for the relationship) could start the trickle down effect that will affect all healing… relationships, family and yep… community as well.

Iyanla invites six men into a House of Healing to help fix the black man’s heart. Among the men seeking guidance are Boyz II Men’s Michael McCary, singer-songwriter Kevin McCall, and socialite Lira Galore’s father Terrance.  Preacher and motivational speaker Devon Franklin visits the house to help identify tools for healing. Part 1 of 3.

In a three-part, multi-week episode of OWN’s award-winning series “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant returns to the “House of Healing” with six African American men struggling with broken spirits and broken hearts. The men—which include a man attempting to build a life for himself after numerous stints in jail to a former singer who struggles with feelings of abandonment to a father looking to mend a relationship with his famous socialite daughter—are struggling with their identities due to the effects of feeling criminalized, dehumanized and victimized by society.

Be sure to check it  out TONIGHT Saturday, October 29 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) #ding!!
