We will discuss the black church, black secular community and its claim of the social justice mantle. Everybody wants to claim that they marched with MLK and had tea with MalcolmX. Was that really the case? Let's talk about this and more.
Were the Black Power Movement and Civil Rights Movement started and maintained by the black church?
Were the Black Power Movement and Civil Rights Movement started and maintained by the secular community?
Were these movements supported and funded by the black church? What percentage? ...and more...
How were black womens issues handled by the church? Were they supportive or patriarchal in approach?
Although women started, funded and maintained these movements, they were pushed to the back. Current movements are being spearheaded by women.
Is that why the response has been dismal from the black church?
Is that why the response has been dismal from the black community?
Is that why the response has been dismal from the black secular community?
Is the old Civil Rights Vanguard attempting to co-opt these movements from the young people who started them?
This movement is inclusive of ALL BLACK LIVES. Is that why you some black men rejecting it? Do they believe that the focus should be on Black men and then they will help the women? Are we falling for that trick again?
That and more.

Join Shabaka and Jerry as they discuss black economics and black empowerment for the Melanated family. Tonight's episode will include Black economics, reinvesting in our community, flexing our buying power, and other ways to strengthen the Melanated Nation.
The reason we are focusing on Black economics today is because at some point we seem to have forgotten the importance of working together. From the time Black people arrived in this nation, whether by force or by choice,we knew that our best chance for survival was by working together. Whether it be sharing a garden tool or sharing a small kitchen, blacks knew that combining resources would improve our living conditions; Even when we could not physically fight for freedom we pooled our resources to purchase it for those of us who where up for sale.
So as you can see the Melanated man has always known that our unity is a powerful tool. Let get back to the old ways of our wise forerunners and build a great Black community that is focused on taking care of one another and doing what's right.
You can call in tonight by dialing (917)889-2830 or you can log on here.

It is time to heal our relationships in our community! Many of our challenges in the Black Community is how we relate to ourselves and one another. This is an obstacle that we need to clear for a long time now. As Mercury is in retrograde in Libra, many relationships, partnerships, marriages, and obligations are illuminated and it is time to focus on the work of restoring Maat. Much of our lives are effected in one way or another by the relationships that we have and how we perceive, protect and handle them. We are discussing relationships of all types: family, work, social, intimate, spiritual and otherwise. We are in need of healing so that we can move forward in ways that we know that we should. Like it or not, all we have is US so let's get it right so we can improve our quality of life.

A very near and dear friend was killed last night by her husband in a murder-suicide. Angelina was a good woman and good mother whose life was cut brutally short, but we want to help her three orphaned children however we can. All of the money raised will go towards the children's educations. A donation of any amount or simply spreading the word is invaluable. Thank you. ~Emelyne
