She currently serves as the Chief Administrative Officer for East Side University in Houston, Texas. Dr. Smith's most recent and most esteemed accomplishment has been the completion of her true life story "Choices". Choices was written during an 18 month incarceration experience and has become a message of hope and redemption for many. This story is resonating with both youth and adults because of the courage and tenacity in which it was written. Post-incarceration, Dr. Sandra D.

So this Thursday evening is one show that might have a key within it to unlock more of our Terrific Minds!!!
On July 13th, 2015, Sandra Bland, a 28 year old Black woman from Naperville, IL, was found dead in a Waller County, Texas, jail cell on July 13, three days after she was arrested for a minor traffic offense. She was in Texas to begin a new job at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University. The cause of death was listed as "self-inflicted asphyxiation" - suicide - with a noose fashioned from a plastic garbage bag.
Join me with my co-host, educator and civil rights advocate Sharonda Allen, as we discuss the disturbing aspects of this case, how a traffic stop for a minor offense escalated into a major confrontation, incarceration, and the unexplained death of a young woman with so much to live for.
What is it like to be Black in America?
We anticipate a no-holds-barred discussion on the unanswered questions in the Sandra Bland case and the repeated violations of the civil rights of African-Americans at the hands of police, and the callous disregard for Black lives.
