Join The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Lak, Hip Hop at it's best!
Larry “LAK” Henderson is the founder of Smart Music Entertainment, and the creator of a new sound of hip-hop music that is used as a tool to educate and awaken the consciousness of youth and people in our communities. His album, Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, has hit Amazon bestseller lists (#1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in Educational Music), and has received airplay on major radio stations around the world, due to his combination of deep, historical insights and authentic hip-hop sound.
The album features songs about African and African-American history, politics, geography, money management, and commentary on the social war raging in our urban communities. CBS calls Lesson One “creative, innovative, and informative.” Dominion of New York Magazine says, “Most people who use hip-hop to educate do so badly. Lak does it so well.”
Lak is a social critic, history and religion intellectual, and an innovative education advocate. Through his company’s Smart Music Insights initiative, he offers free performances and educational workshops for urban youth; guidance for parents and youth educators on ways to foster learning; and original songwriting to support awareness campaigns for positive community organizations. Lak holds degrees in Africana Studies, Communications, and Labor Studies from Rutgers University, and studied studio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research.
Lak has been featured as a guest on a host of radio and television programs, including London UK’s BANG 103.6 FM, CBS, KMOJ 89.9 FM Minneapolis, WVON 1690 AM Chicago, WPRB 103.3 FM Princeton University, WRSU 88.7 FM Rutgers University, WMNF 88.5 Tampa, BET, LA Talk Radio, and many more.
It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment).
Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.
According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.
For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.
What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP? Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP? We're going to cover all of this and more!
If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you!
We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.
Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).

Is the White House Educational Policy impacting your child's ability to get a quality education?
Before, it was Bush with No Child Left Behind; now, it is Obama with Race to the Top.
How is the White House Education policy driving Quality Education and Student Progress / Success? Are we really closing the 'GAP'? Do we understand Common Core, School Ratings, the Charter School Movement and Teacher Evaluation?
What do we really think about the National Education Policy?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment and resulting compelling story that brought me to where I am today, coaching people like you on exactly what to do to find and meet Quality Men after 50. That defining moment in my life happened after I had just divorced my second husband. http://lessonsofthelost.com/book/author
One day, in the middle of the night, I woke up in a pool of sweat. All I kept saying to myself is, “What have I done? Why did I leave this man who at least I knew… just to struggle in the dating game trying to get dates with not so great men? I’m over 50 now…who will even want me at this point in my life…having been married twice on top of it? Am I just fated to live my life alone?” http://www.findaqualityman.com/about-2/

Lifes Issues with Lloyd Rosen with his guest Lou Anne Smoot & Jacqui IWU
Lou Anne Smoot, a then 60-year-old lesbian who, as a young woman, sacrificed her happiness to do what she had been taught was the "right thing." She married and remained faithful to her husband for 37 years until she simply couldn't keep up the pretense any longer. At that time she was teaching a ladies Sunday School class at the First Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas - an area of Texas affectionately referred to as being behind the "Pine Curtain."
This retired public school teacher, holder of two college degrees, mother of four, grandmother of six, and Baptist Sunday School teacher, courageously changed her life in the direction she felt God was "prodding" her to go. Despite the uncomfortableness of remaining a member of her Baptist church when she divorced and began "coming out," she remained faithful to God and to her church at a time when most homosexuals her age either remained "in the closet" or turned their backs on the churches that seemed to turn their backs on them.
Lou Anne is now an activist for gay rights and serves on the boards of both East Texas PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and Project TAG (Tyler Area Gays). She was awarded the 2010 Project TAG Advocate of the Year Award. She volunteers with Meals on Wheels and the Bethesda Health Clinic, and is active with The League of Women Voters. In her "spare time" she enjoys reading, traveling, working in the yard, playing Freecell on the computer and playing Rummikub. She leads an Adopt-A-Highway cleanup group, a monthly Ladies Dinner group, and a monthly Board Games group as well as spends at least one day a week babysitting grandchildren.
