    Salute to the Tuskegee Airmen of the Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Despite adversity and limited opportunities, African Americans have played a significant role in US military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the US military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen.


    The military selected Tuskegee Institute to train pilots because of its commitment to aeronautical training. Tuskegee had the facilities, and engineering and technical instructors, and climate for year-round flying. The first Civilian Pilot Training Program students completed their instruction in May 1940. The Tuskegee program was then expanded and became the center for African-American aviation during World War II.


    The Tuskegee Airmen overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. They proved conclusively that African Americans could fly and maintain sophisticated combat aircraft. The Tuskegee Airmen’s achievements, together with the men and women who supported them, paved the way for full integration of the US military. 


    Nov. 6, 1998, President Clinton approved Public Law 105-355, which established the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, to commemorate and interpret the heroic actions of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. The site contains a museum and interpretive programs at Moton Field and a national center.


    Salute to the sons of the US Virgin Islands: Henry E. Rohlsen and Herbert Heywood, The Tuskegee in Paradise, and to the newsletter about them of the same name.

    Feeble Minds: The Ghosts of Letchworth Village by Jason Stanton


    In Feeble MInds: The Ghosts of Letchworth Village, Jason Stanton delivers a riveting tale of his years investigating an asylum in Rockland County, New York, active with the spirits of the dead tortured residents. With the help of a guardian spirt that leads him to safety, he faces menacing ghosts that wander the expanse of this institution closed down in 1996.


    Jason diligently recreates the probable history and characters pieced together in his account of what life was like for residents and staff during the 1940's, including standard and experimental treatments for psychiatric disorders.


    Take a walk through a frightening and mysterious building and cemetery  where all that remains of the former residents are numbers on identical markers,  and energy from the past wandering the rooms and hallways of a place that was so cruel to them in life.

    The Father Factor - Vincent Ellis White

    in Lifestyle

    According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America - 1-3 live in biological father-absent homes. Nine in ten Americans agree this is a crisis. Due to the "father factor", affecting most of the social issues in America today-from police brutality, to youth delinquency and academic failures-breakdowns in the system have become all too prevalent. This underscores the fact that children with involved fathers do better across every statistic on child well-being than their peers in father-absent homes. A stable at-home dad was something yearned for by author/advocate Vincent Ellis White when he was a kid. Seeing how it led to rage and rebellion in his own life, he now focuses on mentoring, healthy family advocacy, & strengthening families by way of creating awareness and open dialogue to help address similar problems faced by youths dealing with the father factor.


    He is joining us to discuss his book titled "Finding Chris My Father."  (347) 637-2319 and press 1.

    Rebuilding the African Community: Marriage

    in Culture

    The African American community has the lowest marriage rate in America and the highest out of wedlock childbirth rate.  But on top of these depressing numbers, the Census Bureau figures show that while everyone else's divorce rate went down, Black women between the ages of 50-59 were more likely to divorce.  Our divorce rate went up to 48%.  In addition, Black woman have the highest chance of their first marriage ending within 10 years, at 47%.  “Marriage and Divorce in the African-American Community” - REAL-PIC TV Network


     In 1890, 80% of African American households were comprised of two parents. One hundred years later, only 40% of African-American children live in married-couple households.


    Is marriage a foundation stone in the rebuilding of the African community?  What are we missing? Why we need to revive marriage tradition.


    We'll talk about it.
