Is Bogotá the new Harlem? Could be, if you ask Bonnie DeShong and Ja'Vonne Harley. “Each week we’re going to highlight a destination that’s rich in black history and we recently discovered that Columbia is one of those destinations,” say The Traveling Eye hosts. “Columbia has the Amazon, so there’s dense jungle, but there are also the coast lines, both the Pacific Ocean and the Carribbean Sea. They have great beaches and food and cultural diversity, including Africans who came over through slavery,” adds Bonnie. “Now, African history there certainly wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, but in 1992 there was an estimate that Afro-Columbians comprise up to 21 percent of the entire population in Columbia.”

Join us this week on The Joshua Generation as we discuss the outlook for the future of Black America and some of the challenges we will face long after President Obama is out of office. With the clock ticking on his second and last term, where do Black people stand now? Are we better off, worse off, the same, or does anyone really care? What has Bible history to do with Black America and what is the meaning of the Savior's words "The Thief Cometh Not But for to Steal, Kill and Destroy?" - John 10:10
On Saturday last, I was invited to a ceremonial chuch service called the "7 Ups." It was a beautiful program implemented and hosted by a long-time sister-friend who is a pastor at the church she serves. She told me how God gave her this revelation during a moment of prayer and quiet reflection. It contained several scriptural principles: Tighten UP, Step UP, Pray UP, Speak UP, Look UP, Break UP, and Dress UP. Seven speakers were invited, but it happened that one did not show. Even as she introduced "Sister Add On" and substituted for the no-show, I knew that role was my own. After I told her I could have spoke up on that topic for days, she admitted that she started to invite me, but didn't want to put me on the spot at the last minute. I did not SPEAK UP because I feared overstepping my boundaries and did not want to infringe on a planned program or church protocol. Tonight, I will read from an article on Urban Intellectuals named "Cotton Be Gone!" as an encouragement to Black America to Look UP! for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke 21:28), to look up to the hills from whence cometh our help (Ps. 121).

Welcome to Our Own Voices Live with your hosts: Angela Thomas, Roger Harris and Rodney Smith.
Our topic today is, “Black History Month, State of the Union & the State of Black America”
This week on Real Talk with Rick and J. Rich we will be discussing the mass extermination of the black man in America. Although the term “mass extermination” may seem somewhat superlative in defining the plight of the black man in America, statistics reveal that the term may be more accurate than most realize.
According to numbers released by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, black men are dying at the hands of law enforcement officers at a rate of two per week. When white vigilante and security officers are considered the numbers rise to one every 28 hours.
Unfortunately, the systematic extermination of black men extends beyond our young men being gunned down by law enforcement. Below, you will find several methodologies that are being used to minimize the impact of the black man in the black community.
The feminization of the black male image (promoting homosexuality among black men)
The Miseducation of the black male
Devaluation of black life promoting black on black violence
Creating division between the black and black women
We will talk about these issues on this episode of Real Talk with Rick and J. Rich.
There seems to be more and more young black males being shot and killed in these united states of america these days...Why is that? Is there a war on black boys or are african american males the new public enemy #1? Well tonight on the GetHeard Show we'll be discussing these issues regarding what's happening to the Lost boys in the hood!!! Tune in and check us out.

Black History Month is a celebration of peace for the American Black.
Black History Month is a celebration of survival of African people who adapted to a foreign land, America, while living lifestyles less than of animals, without the ability to communicate in their native tongue, given strange names, assigned most times strange work, while looking at the same stars and moon and sun and not seeing anything else familiar.
Black History Month is a celebration of accomlishments and contributions made to America by the only group of Americans whose families did not choose to be Americans. We cannot celebrate Black History without recognizing the kindness of White believers who was instrumental in the reconstruction of America; ministers who coalitioned in God's name, and did the right thing for mankind by helping free slaves; and we celebrate Blacks who rationalized joining the military as a step toward freedom for a people. We celebrate civil rights leaders for their contributions toward uniting America. And we celebrate our Black and White ancestors who was able to adapt to bondage physically yet not mentally which gave us to freedom to know a better day was yet to come.
The struggle for Blacks has been more nightmares than dreams until civil rights. Black had to find a peace no other Americans had need to search for. Being brought to America in the belly of slave ships is the reason Blacks lived nightmares. The celebrating of Black History brought many dreams to reality and helped Blacks adapt to love America. I guess I would say Black History became therapeutic.
