SORT BY Relevancy
Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."
Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.
What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"
That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.
Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.
I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.
This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.
Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...

Meet author Ron Boehm. Ron will be my guest on the show to discuss his new book, The Boys on Cherry Street: From the Crazy Innocence of College to the Loss of Innocenc in Vietnam.
About the book:
The Boys on Cherry Street is a collection of stories both humorous and heroic. The stories start with the zany and outrageous antics of the author and his college friends and continues through his U.S. Marine Corps training, flight school and service in Vietnam. There are many great books written about the Vietnam War—its heroes, their courage and sacrifice. However, this book is different in that it also shows the keen sense of humor that some men showed in some of the most stressful situations imaginable. It was this sense of humor that Boehm believe was part of their coping mechanism that got them through the tense situations of combat. The book is a salute to the young men of the Vietnam War Era who answered their country’s call.
About the author:
Ron Boehm was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. After graduation from Southeastern Louisiana College he went through OCS in the U.S. Marine Corps and was commissioned an officer. He was one of the first group of aviation students the Marine Corps sent through U.S. Air Force Flight School. After earning his Air Force and Navy Wings’ he flew the A6A Intruder in combat and served as a Forward Air Controller with the 7th Marine Regiment in Vietnam. Ron Currently lives in Houston, Texas has two children and owns a construction company. This is his second book.

Meet author Dr. Lucie K. Lewis. She will be my guest to discuss her book, I AM: Renewal From Within the Garden
About the book:
Much is said about the importance of knowing what you stand for so that you do not fall for just anything, but knowing what you stand on is what keeps you standing in the face of whatever comes. What you stand on becomes the anchor of your life. Dr. Lewis had anchored herself in the wisdom of a trusted confidant standing through this cherished loved-one s strength. When this very special woman died, Dr. Lewis felt lost until she could reanchor her life through a search that led her on a journey of emotional healing. In this work, Dr Lewis guides you through the lessons that soothed her weary soul and lifted her from depression. This book is for all who seek renewal, awakening, restoration, and hope in tomorrow.
About the author:
Lucie Lewis is an experienced freelance technical and creative writer and the owner/founder of Creative Futures, LLC. She holds an Ed.D. from William Howard Taft University in Educational Leadership, an M.A. in Human Services Administration from Springfield College and a B.S. in Elementary Education from American International College.
