    elation Radio with Kimmie Kim. Special Guest. Mr. Benston !!!

    in Christianity

    William E. Benston, III, FOUNDER / OWNER, from Maryland. He credits his mother and paternal grandparents for instilling in him the principles of discipline, strong values and the importance of work ethic at an early age. Growing up, music heavily influenced William and that influence birthed a passion. After graduating from high school, he moved to Los Angeles, California with only $800, a dream and an undeterred ambition to make his mark in the music industry. Opportunities in Los Angeles led William to New York to work with Rocafella Records. While in New York, he was introduced to a 35mm camera and discovered another creative medium, photography. He began to intern with an experienced cinematographer, receiving training in film production, directing and editing. The in-depth training he received allowed him to fine-tune his craft and William emerged as the go-to cinematographer and videographer in the urban music industry. As a videographer, William has filmed music videos, documentaries and commercials for popular artists such as Flo-Rida, Ray J, Akon, Trina, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Memphis Bleek and T.I., just to name a few. All of his combined experiences broadened his horizons and allowed for an easy transition into the movie industry as a multi-faceted filmmaker. After a brief hiatus from the industry, William was inspired by God to produce an independent docufilm that would change the way people perceive spirituality, God and ultimately the world. His docufilm, It Has Begun, proves that the Bible is based on factual information and real-time events while detailing the importance of salvation. By utilizing his personal and professional experiences, talents, relationships and God-given purpose, William is on a mission to educate and restore faith through It Has Begun. William is a devoted father, CEO, visionary and philanthropist currently residing in Atlanta, GA.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1149

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. The institution commonly known as "Child Protective Services" has operated in an almost untouchable position in North America for decades, as if it was "above the law". To speak out against CPS was to risk losing your children, your family, your career, and in some cases your freedom, as retaliation was quick and vicious. Thankfully, there has been a recent turn in public opinion due to media exposure, precedent-setting lawsuits, ground breaking documentaries and people refusing to be silenced. Slowly, the Courts are starting to hold CPS agencies responsible for their illegal actions and abuses." We'll speak to the producer and director of 'Hope Stripped Bare', Tom Sutherland and cameraman Linley Redford, whose documentary is about the CPS system in North America. We will also be speaking with attorney and advocate Nanine McCool, executive director of Bridge to Justice Foundation, who fought to expose injustice in Family Court. We'll also have a former CPS worker who is willing to speak out about just how deep and how prevalent the corruption of these agencies is. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com

    The Racial Divide: With “Southern Rites” Filmmaker, Gillian Laub

    in Culture

    Gillian Laub is a photographer/artist/filmmaker of the critically acclaimed HBO documentary, “Southern Rites”.  Gillian Laub first visited Mt. Vernon, Georgia, in 2002 to photograph the community’s segregated homecoming celebrations. Seven years later, after multiple visits to the area, the New York Times Magazine ran a photo essay, “A Prom Divided,” that documented Georgia’s Montgomery County High School’s racially segregated prom. Not surprisingly, the series generated national outrage that lead to the integration of the proms.


    As the film unraveled, there became more to the intended story of this small town in Georgia…


    A 22 year old black man, Justin Patterson, was shot and killed by Norman Neesmith, a white man who was living nearby in Toombs County.  


    With continued tensions of racial divide, this tragedy changed the course of Gillian’s documentary. 


    On this episode, we’re going to sit down with Gillian Laub to discuss her amazing film, “Southern Rites” and what she sees as a future for this country when it comes to the Racial Divides that affect us nationwide, and not just in the south. 


    Join us on Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at 8:00pm PST/10:00pm CST/11:00pm EST. 


    We invite you to listen by phone and comment by calling (646)200-3148.  Or listen online and join the chatroom conversation here on Blog Talk Radio, or from the Hot Topics Talk Radio website at www.hottopicstalkradio.com/hottopicstalkradio.

    LYNETTE LOUISE AKA THE BRAIN BROAD WORKS MIRACLES WITH AUTISTIC CHILDREN

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: Helping children to heal through love, play, neurofeedback, comedy, and music


    Lynette Louise is an expert in Autism, and on how to incorporate neurofeedback, combined with play, as the main therapy approach for the autistic child.  She holds two board certifications in Neurofeedback and is working on her PhD in Clinical Psychophysiology. Most notably though, she is a mom extraordinaire! Without question her greatest pride is having raised eight children, (six adopted, five disabled, four on the autism spectrum).  At present, only one of her sons retains his label and remains dependent. 


    Lynette’s one-woman musical comedy show CRAZY TO SANE teaches with laughter, candor and toe tapping tunes including Unfinished and Brainiac. The show—and the CD-- are a collage of her life as the daughter of abuse, the mother of autism, and a student turned teacher of mental health. With artistic splendor she weaves the lessons of a lifetime, comedy, and brain science into this entertaining and emotional show. Besides healing and performing, she is a public speaker,hosts a radio show, and produces documentaries for the disabled, including Fix it in Five and Living with Lynette.


    This extraordinarily multi-talented woman says, “Really, my vision in life was always to save children and to change the world through creative arts because it gets straight to people’s emotions. I never knew I’d be doing documentaries, but I guess I also never knew I’d adopt so many children either.”
