SORT BY Relevancy
Join me and my guest civil rights activist John Barnett as we have a candid conversation on the incident at Spring Valley High School South Carolina, where school resource officer Ben Fields openly assaulted a female student. The incident was caught on video and caught the attention of millions worldwide that eventually led to the termination of Ben Fields. John will be talking about the reaction on the ground in South Carolina, and why federal and local charges should have been filed. We will also be talking about how the family of the female student is doing and what the family hopes to achieve in the coming days.
All this and more on Sunday Nov 1, at 6:00pm on the Alysha Live! Radio Show.

Birmingham, Alabama is considered ground zero in the civil rights movement. In the 1950s, African-Americans of all ages in Birmingham drew a proverbial line in the sand against racial segregation. Their stories, struggles and ultimate success over Jim Crow laws is on display at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in an effort to keep the stories of this dark chapter in American history alive.
Across the street from the Civil Rights Institute is the 16th Street Baptist Church where a 1963 bombing that killed four young girls changed the course of history in Birmingham and America. We will walk through this church that has, today, become a place to unify a community and people from all over the world.
Downtown Birmingham is the home to the Civil Rights Heritage Trail. Kelly Ingrham Park, also known as Freedom Park, was the staging area for many of the demonstrations that took place in Birmingham led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and others. Today, Freedom Parkt is a sculpture garden that honors those who peacefully demonstrated.
We will revisit our conversation with jazz legend, the late Frank "Doc" Adams. He shared his music and life with us when we met him at the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame just weeks before his passing at the age of 86.

Hey there Tea Sippers!! How many of you are OVER Ms. Stacey Dash's comments about Black History/Herstory Month? How many are OVER the fact that BHM seems to only focus around Malcolm, Martin, Rosa, Fredrick and George Washington Carver? Well, I am going to take a different stab at this issue as I will be Dishing Tea on the critically crucial involvement of a man who was the Originator, the Architect, the Organizor, the Blueprint, the Administrator of what we now know as The Civil Rights Movement. Often times, we have heard folks battle with the LGBT community about why and how The CRM is different from The Human Rights Movement aka Gay Rights Movement; however most folks either have not paid attention to, don't want to give credit to, or have no clue that The CRM was DESIGNED by a Black Gay Man named Bayard Rustin!
Rev. Dr. Calvin Morris played a major role in the Civil Rights Movement. A civil rights and human rights activist, Dr. Morris worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., serving as Associate Director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference's Operation Breadbasket (now Operation PUSH). He was Executive Director of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change.
Dr. Morris is joined by Dr. Jamal Watson, an award winning writer and lecturer.
Today many people are celerbrating MLK Day...............Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. Today on "It's My House" we are asking the question:

We shall define what Civil Rights are and then identify "civil rights opportunities" and how those opportunities can be converted into "civil rights assets".

Blacks have suffered great oppression since being brought to the United States.
In hopes of creating a remedy, the Civil rights movement was enacted. Although created for Black equality, many other groups seem to have benefited from the movement.
In this episode we will look into the Civil Rights movement, and have open dialogue concerning the pros and cons of the movement, and what it actually represents for Black people in a positive manor if anything at all.

Ricardo Jones and the Justice Journalist continue their review of the debacle that is the Department of Justice. Why can't journalists get complaints filed by citizens on police officers from the DOJ? Why isn't the DOJ investigating police brutality and civil rights complaints BEFORE black people are targeted for murder and other crimes by law enforcement, city officials and judges? Are black DOJ officials and civil rights groups complicit in the problem?
Call in with your comments and questions.
