The Ghost Brothers have spent the last six years as a team chasing ghosts down together. The brothers have a unique story starting with Dalen and Juwan meeting when one was a sophomore and the other a junior at the illustrious HBCU, Clark Atlanta University (CAU), where they were both Kappa Alpha Psi Incorporated. The two would often have random spiritual conversations after Juwan found out that Dalen’s mom was a pastor. In 2010, Dalen met Marcus, who was a barber in the CAU, because he started cutting his hair. Soon after, the three became fast buddies. Dalen started their paranormal adventures after he had a dream that they should begin exploring the unknown. He jumped out of bed, kicked Juwan’s door down, and said, “WE SHOULD HUNT GHOSTS!” By 2011, Dalen and Juwan were filming their own investigations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia, and putting them on YouTube. What was fascinating to the guys at the time was that they couldn’t find any people of color in the field. In 2014, they were contacted by a network; Marcus joined them to film the pilot and the rest, as they say, is history. Staying true to their church roots, the brothers say a prayer before entering each situation to keep them safe. They aren’t afraid to tackle the supernatural because they have been taught it’s a natural progression of the afterlife and that it’s nothing to play with.
