Where does today's paucity of quality role models in the black community originate? How can we reverse this trend that has lead to many lost lives and disgusting statistics?
Join the discussionas one of our show favorites, Marquis Coates from Tools for Success Inc., returns!
What is a Role Model? Seems like an easy answer -- someone that inspires you. But there may be more permutations than that, so we thought we'd explore it a little more deeply, starting off with perhaps the mother of all role models, Eleanor Roosevelt. I met Shannon Butler when she gave me a tour of Val-Kill, Mrs. Roosevelt's private home. I was inspired by Shannon's enthusiam, knowledge & apparent joy in imparting it. That gives us a glimpse into what a role model can do.
Shannon graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a degree in history and is pursuing that further at University at Albany. She has worked on all that while working as a National Park Ranger! She calls herself all all-American Hudson Valley girl.

What is the role of the Black Church today?
Dr. Claud Anderson in his book PowerNomics begins an important discussion on the Black Church.
We had Mr. Rayfel Coyle, IT Business owner and Mr. Eric Pierre, CPA visiting with us on the show.
I enjoyed the interaction and look forward to implementing effective strategies that make a difference in the lives and business of our listeners and the National Black Business Alliance.
During our discussion of interracial relationships many issues were raised regarding the reasons black men and women choose to date other races. As many households today are run by single black mothers that brought up the question: how do you repair the black family? What is necessary for men to reclaim their roles as head of the black family?

Continuing our discussion on the state of the youth in Black America and the roles we play in it...
Universally, the unpopular teen will engage in behavior or activities that may seem uncharacteristic to the teen or outrageous to society. For Black youths, the universal standards of popularity are doubled, as just being Black is projected as a disgusting quality, and the horrors they endure because of their race is being divided up between being denied that it exists by Whites who are too uncomfortable thinking that anyone in their community are racists, and Blacks who are too afraid to "rock the boat" in White America. Throw in the generational changes made in the Black community village, and you are left with a volatile group of individuals facing big issues with small aresenals and no experienced leaders to guide them through the process. SInce it's clear that one half of the world has no interest in their betterment, how much of a role does the shunning and inaction of Black AMerica play in the creation of poor self-esteem in its own youth?
Denis Quiñones will talk about Jovenes Inc whichwelcomes homeless, at-risk youth (18-25) and gives them a chance to create a path to personal growth and success. We provide stable housing and other community based services that create opportunities for them to live productive lives.
In addition, Jovenes Inc provides homeless youth with an unique opportunity to participate in our “University of Success”; A 16 weeks internship program for youth to gain valuable skills and motivation to return to school and seek employment. We would like to ask you for your support donating professional clothing for our youth-interns.
Please save the date, confirm your participation and your organization’s participation. Professional clothing may be something many may take for granted, but for our homeless youth; it could make the difference to be better prepared for a job interview and be able to change their lives.

Oxford University research states, that by 2030, almost half of all the jobs, in the U.S., could be automated.
Is technology moving so rapidly that many are unaware that their "safe and permanent jobs" are about to disappear?
Are we properly educating our future workforce to be prepared for a brave new world where they must compete with computers?
Is the idea of jobs disappearing all around us to automation a reality or myth?
