SORT BY Relevancy
Birmingham, Alabama is considered ground zero in the civil rights movement. In the 1950s, African-Americans of all ages in Birmingham drew a proverbial line in the sand against racial segregation. Their stories, struggles and ultimate success over Jim Crow laws is on display at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in an effort to keep the stories of this dark chapter in American history alive.
Across the street from the Civil Rights Institute is the 16th Street Baptist Church where a 1963 bombing that killed four young girls changed the course of history in Birmingham and America. We will walk through this church that has, today, become a place to unify a community and people from all over the world.
Downtown Birmingham is the home to the Civil Rights Heritage Trail. Kelly Ingrham Park, also known as Freedom Park, was the staging area for many of the demonstrations that took place in Birmingham led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and others. Today, Freedom Parkt is a sculpture garden that honors those who peacefully demonstrated.
We will revisit our conversation with jazz legend, the late Frank "Doc" Adams. He shared his music and life with us when we met him at the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame just weeks before his passing at the age of 86.

Hey there Tea Sippers!! How many of you are OVER Ms. Stacey Dash's comments about Black History/Herstory Month? How many are OVER the fact that BHM seems to only focus around Malcolm, Martin, Rosa, Fredrick and George Washington Carver? Well, I am going to take a different stab at this issue as I will be Dishing Tea on the critically crucial involvement of a man who was the Originator, the Architect, the Organizor, the Blueprint, the Administrator of what we now know as The Civil Rights Movement. Often times, we have heard folks battle with the LGBT community about why and how The CRM is different from The Human Rights Movement aka Gay Rights Movement; however most folks either have not paid attention to, don't want to give credit to, or have no clue that The CRM was DESIGNED by a Black Gay Man named Bayard Rustin!
Someone told me a while back to just sit back and watch; all this stuff will implode and you can have a ringside seat. Well folks, the Minneapolis NAACP and friends have been compromised and community members and stakeholders that need the agency to work on behalf of the advancement of us all are worried.
Join Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen as we take listeners into the bylaws of the unit NAACP as writen and posted by the national NAACP. It seems someone has disregarded the rules in favor of fame and glory. The phone lines will be open.
Today many people are celerbrating MLK Day...............Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. Today on "It's My House" we are asking the question:
What Civil Rights Opportunities Can You Convert Into Civil Rights Assets ?
We shall define what Civil Rights are and then identify "civil rights opportunities" and how those opportunities can be converted into "civil rights assets".

FLORIDA IS UNDER A PUSH FOR OVERREACHING DEVELOPMENT NOT SEEN SINCE THE SALE OF SWAMP LAND AS HOMESITES IN THE EARLY 1920'S. THE DRIVING FORCE IS GOVERNOR SCOTT AND HIS CRONY-CAPITALIST BUSINESS BUDDIES AND THEIR QUEST FOR EXCESS PROFITS ON THE BACKS OF THE GOOD CITIZENS AND HOME OWNERS. LOOK, WE GET IT. DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN, BUT DO THEY HAVE TO HAPPEN AT THE TOTAL COST OF THE SWAMPS, SPRINGS AND THE TOTAL LIFESTYLE OF RURAL RESIDENTS? NO, THEY DON'T BUT THE CURRENT PUSH MOVING INTO NORTH FLORIDA IF LEFT UNCHECKED WILL RESULT IN A MIAMI NORTH OR WORSE. IF THAT HAPPENS, IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY NEW RESIDENTS AND CORPORATIONS HE BRINGS TO THE STATE WHEN THE WELL RUNS DRY. WE'LL ALL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME.

As of late local activist Carolette Meadows has been a controversial figure in Buffalo's political scene. She seems to be a fearless writer in her new role in the Buffalo Chronicle as Education Corespondent, lambasting a well-loved Minister and covering public education and urban affairs, her latest column has some amazing commentary as well as the link to Meadows v. Board of Education posted just at the foot of her column.
It is her latest article ("Buffalo parents asked to join civil rights lawsuit") on her trials and tribulations with the School Board that Chris ("The MAO Syndrome") will be discussing with her this evening.
She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

TONIGHT AT 7 ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT STORY IN THE THIRD INSTALLMENT. WE'LL MOVE TO A DISCUSSION OF THE UNINTENDED AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES THAT NEIGHBORS TO THE AMBITIOUS PROJECT WILL FACE AND HOW THEIR LIVES CAN LITERALLY BE TORN ABOUT. THE DISCUSSION YOU WILL HEAR IS A PART OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S EXCELLENT AUDIO PODCAST CREATED IN PART BY SUPPORT FROM THE SIERRA CLUB. AND I MUST ADMIT THAT THIS HUMBLE HOST IS INCLUDED AS ONE OF THE PARTICIPANTS SINCE i ALSO LIVE CLOSE BY THE WHERE THE ACTION WILL BE.
THE MAIN POINT BEING MADE IS THAT THE ENTIRE PROJECT IS OVERKILL, TRYING TO FORCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CITY IN LOW, OFTEN FLOODED LAND WITH NO INFRASTRUCTURE. AND SINCE PLUM CREEK HAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO ACTUALLY DEVELOP IT THEMSELVES, THE LOCAL TAXPAYERS, INCLUDING THOSE OF US DIRECTLY IMPACTED, WILL PAY THE PRICE BOTH IN TAXES AND LOSS OF QUALITY OF LIFE. DOES THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CARE? ONLY TIME WILL TELL AND THAT WILL COME IN NEXT WEEK'S MASSIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS.
WE HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN FOR WHEREVER YOU LIVE, DEVELOPMENTS OF THIS TYPE ARE BEING PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. I GUESS PEOPLE WILL FINALLY WAKE UP WHEN THE TREES ARE GONE, THE SPRAWL HAS LEFT BEHIND BOARDED UP COMMUNITIES AND WE'LL WONDER WHAT HAPPENED. SO PAY ATTENTION, YOU MIGHT LEARN A THING OR TWO THAT YOU CAN DO AS WELL.
