    Speak Life Radio ~ Remembering African American History

    in Motivation

    Speak Life Radio ~ Remembering African American History!


     Blessings family and welcome back to another amazing show. When most people think about African American History, the first thing that comes to mind is slavery right? Well our History is much richer and goes deeper than that, we were and still are a Great people with great minds and a fascinating culture. Unfortunately not much of our history is taught in school but that shouldn't stop us from learing it and teaching it to our youth! God says, "My People Perish For Lack Of Knowledge" and that's exactly whats happening to our people because we have no idea how great we are nor do we realize all that we have contributed to society.


     Here are some Important and Famous African Americans you may or may not know: Benjamin Banneker ~1731-1806 Astronomer, clockmaker, publisher. Phillis Wheatly ~ 1753-1784 Poet, one of the first African American poets whose works were published. Frederick Douglass ~ 1818-1895 Abolitionist, editor, orator, author,statesman, reformer. Harriet Tubman ~ 1820-1913 writer, abolitionist, as an ablitionist, she acted as intelligance gather, refugee organizer, raid leader, nurse, revival speaker, and fund raiser. This is just a few but I pray this will give you a taste to study more!!!!


     We are very pleased to have as guest tonight Mr. Donald L Dowridge jr ~ Historian, Motivational Guru, Founder of DLD (Determined to Learn and Develop) Enterprises and Founder of the DLD Black History Museum. Please join us plus invite others.

    The Vaccine Debate: African/Native American Plight

    in Politics

    We talk about vaccines in a variety of ways on this show. But how does it effect minorities in the way of vaccine reaction ? Would you be able to recognize a vaccine reaction ? What part does the pinael gland play with the MMR and African Americans. I will be talking in theory.  I am looking for a study that would discuss it. There have been 22 thousand studies regarding vaccines - how many does the CDC show you ? 161 . Cherry picking it sounds like to me. Let us have a open discussion. I believe the population effected should be within the leadership of getting the problem fixed. That has not happened. Time to call in and let me know what you think. 646 716 7259
