Her career has included leading roles on stage, screen & TV. McKee made a highly praised film debut as the drug-addicted lead singer of a Supremes-like pop group in "Sparkle" (1976) and even has won a Tony nomination on Broadway.
McKee has since appeared in some 40 TV & film projects, including a number of Spike Lee movies, such as Jungle Fever, Malcolm X and She Hate Me.
She currently teaches at the City College of New York, has a lot of upcoming music, film and TV projects, including an urban tragedy, Dream Street, which will serve as her directorial debut.

Spare the rod, spoil the child. I'd like to be your friend. Never say, "no" you'll squelch the child's inner confidence. Which of these philosophies of child-rearing do you endorse? Most of us were raised under some variation of the above. And, as we know from raising our own children, the theories and recommendations on how to raise a well-balanced, "successful," self-confident, capable and kind child are ever-changing and ever-challenging. Today, on "I'm Just Sayin'" I will be joined by Dr. M. Mark McKee, Psyd, who specializes in Adolescent and Child Behavior. Have a question about a specific situation you're dealing with your teen right now? Call (646) 721-9754 between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. tomorrow morning to ask Dr. McKee a question.
Tune in! You might like what you hear.

I got off a plane earlier today from the Move To Amend bi-yearly executive committee meeting. That meeting made me more resolved to bring our politics in a manner distilled for us all. Politics must not be for a lucky privileged few. After all, it affects us all.
It is for this reason that I promised to bring politics home. I promised to bring it in a form that means something to you. In that light, today Politics Done Right is honored to have professor of History at Lone Star College-Kingwood, Dr. John McKee Barr as our guest. Dr. Barr is the author of the award-winning new book from LSU Press titled Loathing Lincoln: An American Tradition from the Civil War to the Presentwhich explores critics of Abraham Lincoln from the 1850s onward. Loathing Lincoln examines major themes and personalities in American history, including federal versus state power, the meaning of freedom and equality, and American imperialism.
This is not just an academic exercise. I have asked Dr. John J. Theis to join the discussion. Dr. Theis is a Political science professor at Lone Star College-Kingwood (LSC). Most importantly he uses LSC’s Center for Civic Engagement to bring political engagement to the campus. He leverages that engagement to encourage kids to enter the body politic outside of the campus.

The Roman Show welcomes WSOF Brandon Hempleman and Lewis Gonzalez and UFC creator Art Davie.
Brandon Hempleman, who came up short in a hard-fought No. 1 contender fight against current World Series of Fighting bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes at World Series of Fighting 4, fights Alexis Vila. Hempleman lost the fight but gained fans as he weathered an incredible storm of offense in a losing result that snapped six-fight winning streak.
The 26-year-old Lewis Gonzalez meets Luis Palomino. He is unbeaten through the first nine fights of his professional career. Gonzalez made an immediate impact at World Series of Fighting in his promotional debut, scoring an upset win over gritty veteran Antonio McKee at World Series of Fighting 4.
Is This Legal? is Davie’s tell-all memoir about creating the inaugural UFC over 20 years ago. Taking place on November 12, 1993 in Denver, CO, UFC 1 stands as a revolutionary moment in marital arts and combat sports, when ten men competed in a one-night, style-versus-style martial arts tournament that captured the imagination of 4,000 attending fans and almost 90,000 households across America via pay-per-view TV.
