SORT BY Relevancy
What role does the black community play in this plight?
What can we do as a community to save our schools?
This episode of Visiting Church with Professor Rhonda Ragsdale concludes a series of discussions with evangelist, story-teller, scholar and poet Myrna Roberts. Professor Ragsdale will discuss the things she learned from "visiting church" with Myrna Roberts over the last several weeks. Ragsdale and Roberts will discuss the Proverbs 31 community-building tactics and how those compare to the strategies used in historically black towns.
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.
HBCUs offer culture, a rich history and rigorous academic programs. Most importantly, they prepare students for leadership and life after graduation. There are 100 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the nation and nine percent of all African American college students attend HBCUs. In 1965, in Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Congress officially defined an HBCU as a school of higher learning whose principal mission was and is the education of African Americans and was accredited and established before 1964.
All HBCUs play a critical role in the American system of higher education. For most of America’s history, African Americans seeking a college education could only get it from an HBCU. email@example.com call in 661-467-2407
What does it mean to be post-racial? Does the election of President Obama prove that we as a country have moved beyond race? Is it our job as minorities to educate white people about our culture? Should black nationalist groups be considered hate groups alongside white nationalist groups? Is racism really over? These are just a few of the questions MC Brooks and Noa Jones will be exploring in the newest show of “The Breakbeat” on Tuesday, October 21st at 7PM CST/8PM EST.

Celebrating 25th Annual Event of the International Black Summit -
The most controversial figure in adult entertainment presents a no holds barred discussion about the future of the business. Rob's insight is spawned from having grown up around the adult biz, as his father owned several adult bookstores throughout Western New York.
Rob was the owner of Extreme Associates, which was at the time considered an outlaw in the biz because of its edgy content. Such fare is commonplace now.
Rob and his wife Lizzy Borden paid an extreme price for innovating adult, as both spent a year in prison on federal obscenity charges.
Rob also owned XPW - Xtreme Pro Wresting, which was one of the top wrestling organizations in the world, with a weekly national TV show, employing such superstars as Shane Douglas, X-Pac, Sabu and the late Chris Candido. XPW folded in 2003 after Extreme was indicted.
