    Why Historically Black Colleges and Universities are Worth Fighting for

    in Lifestyle

    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.

    We will discuss the brilliant article written by Raina in depth.



    Why is it acceptable in the secular community when negative stereotypes and caricatures of the black community (religious and otherwise) are presented to them?
    Is it acceptable if black atheists perpetuate the stereotypes while attempting to pathologize the community that they claim that they want to help?
    Is speaking at all white conferences considered activism nowadays?
    Are black atheists silence on issues of racism, social justice, sexism, etc. being purchased with the promises of speaking engagements, etc.?
    This and more on Sunday.

    Don't Hit Your Children: Alternatives to physically disciplining black children

    in Women

     


    There is a major question in the black community about whether or not physical punishment is a viable option for disciplining children. The practice has been around since slavery and is so ingrained into black parents, that it isn't viewed as something that is problematic but rather a necessary component to parenting. In her Book Beating Black Kids, author Asadah Kirkland, discusses why black parents have got to change their thinking about this tradition and gives effective alternatives for parents who may be uninformed about how to be effective at parenting in a way that doesn't involve corporal punishment. Asadah Kirkland is the featured guest on the show. Please call in and share your views. WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING THE LATEST IN THE NYPD BROOKLYN POLICE SHOOTING. CALL IN 347-215-8933

    Black Feminism: Why We Need It Now More Than Ever

    in Women

    There are tons of discussions about feminism but very few black people actually know what it is about. Most have never read a book about it or even understand its history. The word itself has been used as a weapon against black women as a way of insulting them and making them feel as if they are not loyal to the race if they define themselves as feminists. The images of a group of anti male, masculine type, women who are all lesbians, springs to mind whenever the word feminism is brought up. Black women especially, have been conditioned to believe that the mythology around the word feminism makes it something they should refuse to be associated with. They havve bought into the stigmatization of the word itself, wtihout ever having even read one book about it. Black males are even worse, as they will continue to spread lies about this area of activism and any correct information about it is immediately dismissed as being "anti-black". This episode will explore the history of black feminism, how it came about, what it really is and why there is a fear of it. It will serve to inform and dispel the myths associated with black feminism and give one an insight into why it is more vital than ever to ensure that black women and men work to further its aims.
