    How to strengthen the village if the village is not strong enough.....


    “The positive men we have willing to be coaches and role models are doing a great job, but we can’t raise 72 percent of children who are missing fathers,” says Kunjufu. “The village is not strong enough. It’s still 5 million black boys who need a father.”


    Something to think about:


    Why is it that one of the most important decisions; to create and maintain family does not involve careful planning and greater thought?

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing W/DON DURANT

    in Writing

    Our Broadcast today will focus on an update of what is going on in our communities to bring about change that serves the needs of all and not just the wealthy.The recent announcement that the Village will be giving away - FREE OF CHARGE- 14 parking lots to a developer serves as reason enough to open an investigation... In 2007 Urban America offered to pay $750,000 per acre for the parking lots.  At that rate in today's market, the lots and the parking garage would come to $34 million dollar giveaway.

    Photographer Roberto Rabanne ,Music , Fashion and so much more!

    in Pop Culture

    The images of photographer Roberto Rabanne have captured the energy, complexity and beauty in music, fashion and art for more than four decades. I have a simple philosophy about photography, it’s that the image has to be powerful” explains Rabanne. “And I find this happens when you capture the subject engaging in the non-defensive, unguarded essence that is truly ‘them. One day at a sound check he decided he had nothing to lose and asked Jimi Hendrix if he could take his picture with his Yashica twin lens reflex.  “Sure, man,” the flamboyant guitarist said, and Rabanne began snapping away.  “I shot half a roll of film, rushed back to my little darkroom and processed it, and ran back to the Fillmore with the proof sheets,” explains Rabanne.  “Hendrix said, ‘Wow, man, I like these,’ and stuck a $100 bill in my hand.  He was my first ‘client’ and that was the beginning of my career as a professional photographer.Rabanne’s photos were first published in magazines like Rolling Stone, Crawdaddy, Cream and the East Village Other. They ran the gamut of the great bands – from the Grateful Dead and Quicksilver to Big Brother and the Holding Company, Cream, Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and more. Early on, Rabanne befriended Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. The legendary musician gave him priority access and allowed the photographer to do several studies of him and the band.Later, Rabanne’s interests expanded to include jazz and reggae. Shooting for Down Beat, Jazz Express, Goldmine, NME and numerous recording companies, his work now included the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Bob Marley and scores of others as he became the official photographer of the Monterey Jazz Festival.

    Conversations with Deli - Educating You On What Matters

    in Education

    Join me as I welcome authors of Footsteps of a Forgotten Soldier:  The Life and Times of David Carll.  Francis S. Carl and Denice Evans Sheppard are the descendants of David Carll, and they will share their latest book about David Carll’s fascinating and powerful American story.  Tune in to take a remarkable journey, in the footsteps of a forgotten soldier.  


    At a time in American history when slavery was still practiced in many Southern states during the Civil War, thousands of free hard working black men from the state of New York answered the call of duty once a colored regiment had been authorized in the state of New York.  One such young man who answered the call was David Carll, from the town of Oyster Bay, New York. At the age of eighteen he would set out on a Journey that would take him from the small village where he was born and raised into the deep south behind Confederate enemy lines in South Carolina while assigned to the 26th United States Colored Troop Regiment. One hundred and fifty years after the Civil War ended, the story of this one soldier will be told by his descendants. Records compiled from the National Archives in Washington DC, as well as records from many other reliable sources including oral history from David Carll's grandchildren makes this story possible.  What was uncovered in the research was a remarkable story that seemed to rise up from the very soil David Carll stood on.  For more information about David Carll visit www.davidcarll.com

    WHAT SUCCESSFUL URBAN SCHOOLS DO! EXPERTS SHARE BEST PRACTICES

    in Education

    Show overview:


    A discussion with Ms. Linda Harris, Mr. Patrick Jones and Mr. James Taylor. Show title "What Successful Urban Schools Do! Experts Share Best Practices.


    NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances,  resources, and  the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores,  therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.


    "We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."
