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
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.
What role does the black community play in this plight?
What can we do as a community to save our schools?
The annual PUSH Excel HBCU Tour held during Spring Break every year always presents exciting opportunities for high school students, many of whom are offered scholarships and are accepted on the spot at some of the major Historically Black Colleges and Universities. This year we will hear the inspiring stories from several of the students who attended the recent college tour and were accepted into college during the tour. The event is a life changing experience, and encourages parents to prepare their children for higher education by exposing them to the unlimited possibilities available for those who desire success in life.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students in U.S., with approximately 1,100 students dying by suicide each year. In addition, approximately 1% of undergraduates attempt suicide and 6-9% seriously consider suicide each year. It is recognized that youth suicide is influenced by many factors; research has indicated that one such factor is suicide contagion, a phenomenon to which teenagers and young adults are particularly vulnerable. Suicide contagion, sometimes referred to as suicide modeling, is the process wherein the direct or indirect knowledge of one suicide facilitates the occurrence of a subsequent suicide. There is ample evidence to support concerns about suicide contagion/modeling; several sources of this evidence will be presented. Given the prevalence of suicide on college campuses, and the associated risk of contagion and clustering, it is imperative that colleges develop effective and comprehensive postvention strategies. This blogtalk will present specific postvention strategies that colleges and universities can use to limit the risk of further suicides through contagion.
