SORT BY Relevancy
I've been in the cultural conscious, Black Afrikan Progressive and nationalist movement for years. In that time I've come across a lot of strong, intelligent and resilient Brothas and Sistas who I both love and respect. Either they have gracefully bowed out, retired, or just found there personal way within our current socio-economic & political context and decided to disengage in the every day activism of "the struggle."
A substantial percentage of these soldiers have been left bitter, angry, disappointed, sad, depressed and in some cases left hating their own people or anything having to do with "Black Issues."
I want to talk about why we have lost these powerful soldiers in our fight for nationhood and independence and how our lack of cultural cohesion and a sense of urgency is the reason why we will continue to lose more.
Host K. A. Laity will chat ever so briefly about the relationship between ham and humour and read Graham Wynd's surreal noir story 'Ham on Heels' which was inspired by S. L. Johnson's illustration. Henri Bergson may be mentioned; or perhaps we will rely on Totie Fields. In memorium for the Big W.

Grab a controller at 8 PM Eastern and join Dale and Luke on an adventure through all things gaming as they talk news, reviews, what they've been playing and what's currently going on in the video game industry. On tonight's episode they think back and remember fondly all the video game characters we've loved and lost over the years to fighting the good fight for our video game freedom.
Dale "This is in no way to dimminish the purpose of Memorial Day. My Grandfather served in WW2 and my Uncle served in Vietnam. I am greatful everyday for the sacrifices of those braver than I. It is because of them and those like them that we are able to do things like this podcast."
This week, the Scottscope roundtable celebrates the life and legacy of legendary action star Jim Kelly. We’ll be discussing both his filmography and his place in Black cinema. What was the best Jim Kelly movie? What made Jim Kelly stand out from his fellow Blaxploitation stars? Did he bring anything other than his martial arts prowess and physicality to the table? Was he underappreciated during his time? Have his contributions been overlooked? Can Wesley Snipes and Michael Jai White be considered heirs to the Jim Kelly throne? Will their legacies suffer the same fate as his? How can fandom properly pay tribute to this pioneering Black action hero?
We’ll also be celebrating the life and legacy of legendary Shaw Brothers director Lau Kar-leung. What was Lau’s best movie? How vital was he to the world of marital arts cinema? How does he compare to fellow Shaw Brothers legend Chang Cheh? Can he be considered a true artist even though he worked in a B-level genre? Does his influence transcend martial arts films?

Dr. Toni Yancy recently passed after a battle with cancer. She was one of the first guest on "The Wellness Journey!" about 3 years ago. Dr. Yancey became a supporter of the show. She was gracious and kind...a truely phenomenal woman.
Toni was an extraordinary life force who made an impact on everyone she knew – from those who only met her once, to those who considered her a lifelong friend. Born and raised in Kansas City,KS, Toni was a true renaissance woman who excelled in her many pursuits: at 6’2” a Division 1 basketball player during her undergraduate years at Northwestern,a former model, a poet and author, and a physician. But she was most passionate about her work as a public health researcher and activist.Toni was committed to improving the health of vulnerable populations and devoted her career to eliminating health disparities. She created “Instant Recess®”, a program that calls for a grassroots approach to“making America healthier 10 minutes at a time.” Her idea to incorporate brief bouts of physical activity into daily routine whether at school or work or worship, earned her numerous awards including the Pioneering Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She was one of a handful of national thought leaders asked to serve on the board of directors of the Partnership for a Healthier America, the non-profit that guided First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign.
Toni, thank you for your support and your enthusiasm! I will miss you and so will the rest of the country. Rest in peace.
If you are a big fan of the “In Memoriam” section of awards shows, you are going to LOVE this week’s show, much of which is dedicated to remembering the show business legends that left us recently.

Tupac Amaru Shakur. June 16, 1971 - September 13, 1996. Legends Never Die. Truth never sleeps. I'm not going to say too much during this show. I'll let his music and peers do the talking. Some of the music is raw, so please make sure the children are asleep...Let's go.
TONIGHT 02/07 09:00PM "Chris Kyle in Memorial"
TONIGHT 02/05 09:00PM "Chris Kyle in Memorial"
This evening we remember the life and Navy Seal and Sniper, Chris Kyle and his friend, Chad Littlefield. Both were killed while trying to help a fellow troop get through those times in Iraq and Afghanistan too difficult to remember and can’t ever be forgotten. People who have never served and even those maybe have will never understand what would cause one to ‘snap’ and turn on a fellow soldier. The truth is, man is not wired for the experience of war and certainly not wired to experience repeatedly over a time of ten years. The horrors that are war never leave the psyche and re-play like a video machine but with all the senses. Tonight, we remember those who have given everything and have gotten so little in return.
