Modern means of communication has turned the world into a global village, where everyone in the world is our neighbor. Some people are the type of people you wouldn't want as neighbors. You know who they are - loud, ignorant, destructive, disrespectful, out of control. When we think of traveling to enjoy another part of the world and experience the culture, there are some places in the world we would love to be, the people seem interesting, the entertainment enjoyable, the way of life seems comfortable, and we could feel safe. But what does the rest of the world see when they consider traveling to the inner cities of America? The world loves our music and dancing, but what about this image of excessive crime? This week, we'll talk to journalists and image makers who are examining the global impressions of African American culture, and how that affects the economy in the inner cities. Today we'll talk to members CAAAP, Chicago Association of African American Photographers, whose mission is to capture images that define the history and culture of African American people. Our guests are photographer Deleshia Kinney who is working on a new photography book on African American women and beauty of their natural hair, and Curtis Kojo Morrow, artist, photographer and author of the books "What's A Commie Ever Done To Black People?" and "My Sankofa."

Say NO to DV all day everyday is my slogan. This here topic is very near and dear my heart and it hurts so much to see ladies and guys pass off this act like, "Oh no, it's not a huge deal, he/she loves me so much and I made them mad that's why they hit me!" Are you kidding me????
Last week on the social networks, a post/meme on a girl saying, being hit by her man was no big deal really ticked me off!
We need to take our lives into safety and say NO to DV!!! Join us online on Thursday 10pm
Below, is an excerpt from a blog I wrote a while ago.....
He whips me up by my belt buckle
Pulls me to him forcefully
Nothing sexual about the move
Primal anger in his eyes
Looking him square in the eyes...
I say under my breathe
"You don't want to take it there!"
I knew the blow was coming
Or so I thought...
What say ye to this barbaric act?
