  • African Americans Philanthropy, and the Civil Rights Movement - Dr. Rhonda Jones

    in History

    Tithe, Time, and Talent: African Americans, Philanthropy, and the Civil Rights Movement, 1925-1968 addresses an important gap in civil rights historiography that centers on philanthropy, volunteerism, and fundraising.  Philanthropy has been an immutable part of the American experience since the late sixteenth century.  Since money is often emphasized as the highest form of contributory assistance, philanthropic studies frequently fail to take into account the socio-cultural value of time, expertise, and the exchange of goods and services.  African Americans hampered by enslavement, economic disparity, exclusion and social inequality entrenched in White supremacy, were forced to operate clandestinely.  “Hidden in plain sight,” their self-help initiatives though silent and informal, were orchestrated through the church, fraternal orders, benevolent and burial societies.   Practiced under the guise of self-care and community uplift, African Americans maintained schools, purchased land, operated soup kitchens, and created socio-political institutions that offered protection against a hostile world.  While there are myriad numbers of ways of understanding how African Americans actualized philanthropy, the documentation of their charitable activities have been more easily qualified than quantified.  As a result, documentation of their efforts has been grossly underestimated and they have become artificially marginalized as recipients and never as providers. 
    Dr. Rhonda Jones is a proficient scholar, researcher, and instructor who specializes in Public History, Archives, Digital History, United States History, Oral History, African American Philanthropy, the Civil Rights Movement, and International Documentary Studies.

  • Speaking Out Against Child Abuse with Host Laurie Ann Smith

    in Current Events

    My name is Laurie Ann Smith-Tornerup. I am a child abuse survivor. I grew up in a dysfunctional, abusive home in which my parents were both diagnosed mentally ill, psychologically ill when they were arrested and brought up on child abuse charges. I have been on my healing journey from the abuse since May 22, 2007 doing the majority of the work from 2009 to present. I am a Child Abuse Prevention Public Speaking Advocate speaking at events and my own online radio shows since November 2009. Recently I co-founded Advocates United For Humanity, a 501c3 Not for Profit, with my sister advocates Donna M. Kshir and Lee Roberts. We have worked together since 2009 to promote education and awareness about the issues of child abuse, child abuse prevention, domestic violence, teen dating violence, bullying, drug addiction, suicide prevention and help for survivors of abuse. It is my hope to be able to continue to promote child abuse prevention awareness and be an encouragement for survivors as long as I live and breath. Over the years I have had thousands of people support my work and I thank you all for your support and for all you do to help save children lives.

About News

News, weather, traffic, sports. If it's happening, it's being talked about on BlogTalkRadio. Nothing has the power to move us, motivate us or shake us to our core like what's happening in the world, in the nation and in our neighborhoods. We rely on news for big-picture wants and immediate needs: We plan commutes by traffic reports, our outfits by the weather and our vacations by how the stock market performs. Whether current events happen close to home or across the globe, bookmark this category for in-depth discussions about breaking news and current trends by analysts, authors and educators alike. And if you're fascinated by weather, engage with fellow enthusiasts in conversation about climate change, superstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. And it's fun to note that sports – often paired with news, but here a category entirely its own – have rescued many people's social lives, built solely around team schedules.
