Jim Crow is not dead but alive and well and growing by the minute. The question for our next broadcast is...Do we have the emotional capacity to deal with this reality? Evidently Not ... YET ANOTHER BLACK YOUTH SHOT BY YET ANOTHER ‘FAKE’ COP. WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH? ~Ralph Poynter
Special report from Mary Neal about her Aug. 3 Rally Against Brutality and Deaths in Custody and For H.R.2646, "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act."
Special discussion regarding the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Haiti. Special Guest  Bro Daud from Haiti by way of Brooklyn, NY.
WE WILL CONTINUE our special discussion led by Dick Minnerly and the radio panelists (Larry Pinkney, Lynne Stewart, Joel Meyers and Ralph Poynter) concerning democracy and what it means. Minnerly said,  "The term has been dichotomous ... ever since that revolution because, as our dictionaries show, it refers to both a leftist and a rightist view.”
