This week show we talk about how we can help our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We must help our ancestors who helped us and help the ones that are trying now to help us. But they can help themselves as well we are one. And questions please call in our guest line at (347) 327-9705
What role does the black community play in this plight?
What can we do as a community to save our schools?
While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.

September/October 2014 America’s Worst Colleges
We set out to make a list of the poorest-performing colleges. What we found is that, while good schools are basically all alike, every crappy school is crappy in its own way.

On this weeks show, we are going to discuss the relevance of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Back when Cheyney was established in 1837, the purpose of that school and the schools to follow were to educate what were then the African slaves and the newly freed slaves. It was to teach them trades in agriculture, teaching and nursing to name a few. Soon to follow were schools that focused on medicine and the law. HBCU’s have produced American historical giants such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, George Washington Carver, Althea Gibson and Jerry Rice.
Well in today’s America, HBCU’s are under attack. There has a been a push over the last 20+ years to downsize, merge or eliminate many of these institutions. The argument has been that there isn’t the need for them anymore. No longer are the “major” universities segregated, they are doing a “better” job of education black students and the pay of HBCU graduates has declined since the 70‘s. There are many more black students attending these universities, as well as online schools and storefront schools such as the University of Phoenix.
Many of these schools are largely subsidized by state and federal funds, which opens the door for even more scrutiny. Meanwhile, the top 8 schools producing black students who go on to get their PHD’s are HBCU’s. There are plenty of successful stories through these institutions. Ultimately it comes down to money. The endowments of these schools pale in comparison to the many predominantly white institutions.
Miguel Lloyd (Norfolk State) our host, is going to try and get all of this in, during our hour. In the meantime, The Super Producer, Nikkia Ganey (FAMU) will keep us in line and bring us hot topics, Elton Gumbel (FAMU) will have sports and Keith Reed (Coppin St.) will have our financial news. Join us this Wednesday for the conversation.
Hotep Kenyatta (Dr Shaka Blaka) speaks re: Language can be a tool of oppression. Clearly few people want to connect themselves to Africa? Why. Because from the 7th century AD onwards, powerful scholars took a passage from Jewish ancient holy texts and misrepresented it as though "dark skin is a curse from God, who cursed Noah's son Ham for seeing his father naked and drunk, etc" Since then, there have been various efforts to hide the black/african nature of all civilization/humanity, and language has not been spared the racists/white nationalists sword of destruction. (NOTE: Let's also remember that an ancient African, or Native South American language may be represented in Latin Script (letters, characters) but that this never means that the original language is Latin/Roman. Only the writing style used to represent the ancient African, etc sounds/spoken language. People get this confused so often, and brainwashing is hard to fix when people don't know they're brainwashed...!
Also listen in for how the concept of ETYMOLOGY is used in racist way.
