Are we influencing our young black people in 2015? Can anyone name some inventions that black people invented or contributed to America? What are we as black people contributing to America today? How has black history affected us today? How do we as black people make history in America today? Tonight lets get into it, tune in tonight from 7pm to 9pm or call in at 347-308-8813 to join in the conversation.
As we focus on the achievements of blacks during the 19th and 20th centuries, we are neglecting the history being made in the 21st century. This history however is not one of firsts but one mostly of loss and myths. Join Pastor Neal as he explores how the myths of matryrdom of blacks as portrayed through media is attempting to distort black history by redefining it through the lens of class and wealth inequality.

When Dr. Woodson Carter designed "Negro History Week", in 1926, the Harlem Renaissance was well into its maturity. From West Indian sociopolitical influences such as Claude MacKay to the intellecturalism of multiple artforms, Harlem was and still is the epicenter of African diaspora life. By the 1920's, writers and artists lived in Harlem as they brought a vibrant, creative community that found its voice into what came to be the “Harlem Renaissance.”
Several factors accounted for the birth of the movement and propelled it forward. By 1920 the once white ethnic neighborhood of Harlem in upper Manhattan overflowed with recent African-American migrants from the South and Caribbean immigrants. Black soldiers returning from World War I shared a new sense of pride, militancy, and entitlement. Social movements of WEB DuBois and Marcus Garvey established levels of political and economic sustainability that can still be felt throughout Harlem. And now The Nuevo Harlem Renaissance steps into the next 100 years of socioeconomic,and cultural growth.

Team-work is key for anyone looking to make history happen according to TV star Tika Sumpter who stars in Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots. She tells Tim Gordon on BlogTalkRadio that everyone on the team plays their part making things a success, "The buck does not stop at us, it goes through editing, it goes through a process."
