SORT BY Relevancy
For centuries, the defining role of the library has been as a repository of books. Now, in the 21st century, the library faces perhaps its most momentous challenge: Americans are moving away increasingly from the printed page to digital screens for information and communication.
Library leaders nationwide are adapting to this shift by reimagining the library as an engaged community center. The role of librarians is being re-branded to reflect their expertise as content curators and trusted navigators in an ever-expanding ocean of information — in whatever format it may exist.
Join us as we chat with Audrey Barbakoff from Kitsap Regional Library and other stakeholders about their vision and upcoming efforts.
Work for the best America ever. A 19th century America won't do. A 20th century America won't do. Create a 21st century America. Leave your grands 20th century in the past. The worst of 19th century America is embedded into 20th century America. My works are for prosperity for working class adults and children of our nation. My works are for a 21st Century America where children born today will not face segregation and racism 54years from today. My works are for a 21st century America where all children will know American history and no child will feel quilt or undue pride toward the actions or lack thereof of their ancestors. My works are for an America where all our children feel protected in their homes, in streets, in schools, in parades, in places of worship. We get there from here with faith and with work. All Americans deserve to be free to prosper according to their faith and their works. Prosperity is available for all only in a 21st century America. Join me this day and build a 21st century for all America!

As we enter a new year, Common Sense Conversations, takes accountability of the progress of a people. Are we truly prepared to exist in the 21st century? Has the message been laid out for us by our elders, or do we still need prep time? What was the message that our ancestors/elders had prepared for us. Are the current leaders/lecturers, people who are recognized as leaders, honoring the messages of the past? What does self-reliance look like in the 21st Century?

My panel will discuss Marriage in the 21st century. I comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and flavors. But it wasn’t always so. Just as our societies are undergoing a general transformation, so people’s ideas about marriage are being reshaped, leaving them wondering what type of union will survive.
Many have come to the view that fundamental aspects of our society are deficient and need improvement. Marriage, long considered a building block of society, has understandably been caught up in this desire for change. But in the quest to reshape and improve marriage, are people becoming more enlightened or are they reinventing a very old wheel?
Before we overturn long-established ideas about marriage, we need to understand the transformations that have already taken place. From a historical perspective, many of our defining beliefs concerning this ancient institution are rooted in traditional Christianity. Unfortunately, the institutionalized churches have largely forgotten their own roots, often placing tradition and philosophy above the authority of the Scriptures they call holy. The institution of marriage has suffered substantially from this approach.
Peter Joseph returns to discuss Zday 2015 and Movement Q & A. If you would lke to submit a question, please go to the free forum:
Afrikan people have made it into the 21st Century. We may not be in the best shape; but at least we are here. However, being here is not enough. We need to collectively decide which ground battle would be best to launch us into our 21st Century war for survival.
Is it the Black War Against:
Pedophilia (child molestation in the Black community)
The Mobutus (Uncle Tom Race Traitors)
The Police ("plynching" aka police lynching)
The Food War, Agriculture, and Black Farming
Independent Black Schooling
