Clinical Psychologist and Author Dr. E. Douglass Brown is back with us on this rebroadcast show talking about Emotions and The Self. He says that emotions are as essential to a person's inner growth as eating vegetables are to staying physically healthy. Emotions tell us how we feel about ourselves, others around us, and our environment. When it comes to self-development and reaching the psychospiritual "bliss point," a person has to come to like and prefer his or her true self over the ego. That which is in harmony with the true self must be more emotionally appealing and satisfying to a person than ego-centered pleasures.

Are you Pro Black? What does that mean to you? Before you answer, understand that it means many things to many people.
Garvey and Malcolm were all for separation from our captors. While on the other side of the fence you have Douglass and King who were obviously fully committed to integration. So who's right? Or is it much more complicated than this?

1) an interview with the mother of Sgt. James Brown, a battlefield veteran with PTSD who was killed in a Texas jail after serving two tours of duty in Iraq;
2) "Rally Against in-Custody Deaths and Police Brutality at the Georgia Capitol," which Mary Neal, director of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill arranged.
3) interviews with friends of a Florida inmate who put forth strong claims he was wrongfully convicted.
4) Boycott4Justice: The concept that whereas American officials do not care about what citizens think, they do hold corporations in high regard. Therefore, Americans must enlist corporations' support for justice initiatives, which will only be done when Americans impact their profit margins with successful boycotts.
5) Divest or Resign: The concept that decision makers are private prison and jail investors and should be forced to either divest themselves and their immediate family members of corporate stock or resign from public service.

THE BIRTH OF OUR UNION...
In the late 1880's steel had virtually replaced wood and stone as the primry load-carrying material in the erections of bridges and buildings. This abrupt change in structual materials brought a demand for a new type of skill required of the working man. Practically overnight, bridge carpenters became "bridgemen" and blacksmiths became "housesmiths" and 'architectural ironworkers.
When American historian Fredrick Jackson Turner proclaimed the end of an era for the American Frontier, Ironworkers became known as 'COWBOYS OF THE SKIES.'
The glamour and appeal of the new skill...etc.
$2.10 a day for ten hours of work...etc.
1890...accident and mortality rates...etc.
Steel erection attracted the most...etc.
Eligible bachelors were admired by...etc.

Psychologist Dr. E. Douglass Brown will join us as our special guest speaker on this re-broadcast show by popular demand. Re: the topic today he says, "It is just as important to clean up after a storm as it is to learn how to endure a storm. Imagine what a neighborhood looks like after a storm if no one cleans up. Storm after storm, debris and wreckage just pile up. This scenario is liken to what happens when a child never or rarely sees individuals in arguments and conflicts reconcile with each other. There is no closure - no return to a sense that the world is both safe and caring. The child - now an adult - experiences repeated disagreements and disappointments, and is shackled to the view that his or her cynical negative feelings are just being "realistic" about life.

"Garvey's ideas particularly resonated with African Americans during the postwar period. At the core of Garvey's program was an emphasis on black economic self-reliance, black people’s rights to political self-determination, and the founding of a black nation on the continent of Africa. . . .
Perhaps the largest endeavor of the UNIVERSAL NEGRO IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION (UNIA,) was the Black Star Steamship Line, an enterprise intended to provide a means for African Americans to return to Africa while also enabling black people around the Atlantic to exchange goods and services. The company’s three ships (one called the SS Frederick Douglass) were owned and operated by black people and made travel and trade possible between their United States, Caribbean, Central American, and African stops. The economically independent Black Star Line was a symbol of pride for blacks and seemed to attract more members to the UNIA
As a major figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Marcus Garvey was in the vanguard of the new awakening among African Americans. Although his philosophy was at odds with other leading figures of the era, such as W E. B. Du Bois, his influence could not be abated. Promoting his ideals in the art of oratory and through his newspapers, first Negro World and later the Blackman, Garvey has influenced almost every generation of African American writers since."
