    Conversations with Sapphire JBlue and Author Kendra Reeves - "The Crush"

    in Writing

    Composed and confident, Sofie Roberts is thrown for a loop when she runs into the one man who makes her feel like the weak-kneed, starry-eyed young girl she’d been years before—her childhood crush, Bryant Lewis. Seeing him all these years later makes her realize the feelings she’d had for him are still as strong as they were back then. 
    Bryant Lewis is surprised and impressed when he has a chance encounter with Sofie Roberts. She is no longer the shy, quiet girl he remembers from the neighborhood. She has grown into a sexy, confident woman. The attraction he felt from the moment he bumped into her was something he couldn’t deny. 
    Now that she is an adult and has the opportunity to tell Bryant her secret will Sofie take the risk of being rejected and embarrassed, or should she just let the old crush be just that—her secret? 
    Bryant has been stung—painfully—by a woman in the past. He isn’t looking for anything serious, but the electricity that sizzles between him and Sofie is something that can’t be ignored. Is he willing to move act on that attraction? 
    What happens when two people make a connection? When the desire that burns between them becomes so hot that sparks begin to jump? Will the crush be the start of a journey of desire and seduction, or will Sofie and Bryant let their fears and past hurts keep them from exploring where this chance encounter could take them?

    Protesters Wage Hunger Strike To Save Dyett Public School

    in Women

    Are you willing to put your life on the line for what you believe? Twelve advocates of supporting good neighborhood public schools have certainly done so. The Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, wants to close Dyett public school, strategically located in the Hyde Park area bordering the Bronzeville community, forcing families to have to travel miles away from home to reach a nearby public school. In Chicago, traveling to outside neighborhoods could be fatal, given the unchecked gang violence that cost so many lives last school year. The bottom line issue is always money. The Dyett High school building would serve those well who want to include it in a real estate deal as the city negotiates space in Hyde Park for the new Presidential library. And as for the safety and education of the children? The city has chosen to ignore an excellent plan for the reopening Dyett as a Dyett Global Leadership and Green Technology School. Mr. Jitu Brown and Dr. Ayesha Wade Bey join us to give an update on the hunger strike.

  • Resolution and Emotional Life part 1 with Dr. Brown

    in Self Help

    Psychologist Dr. E. Douglass Brown will join us as our special guest speaker on this re-broadcast show by popular demand. Re: the topic today he says, "It is just as important to clean up after a storm as it is to learn how to endure a storm. Imagine what a neighborhood looks like after a storm if no one cleans up. Storm after storm, debris and wreckage just pile up. This scenario is liken to what happens when a child never or rarely sees individuals in arguments and conflicts reconcile with each other.  There is no closure - no return to a sense that the world is both safe and caring. The child - now an adult - experiences repeated disagreements and disappointments, and is shackled to the view that his or her cynical negative feelings are just being "realistic" about life.

  • Interview with Brian Babb

    in Spirituality

    "Write with your eyes like painters, with your ears like musicians, with your feet like dancers.  You are the truthsayer with quill and torch. Write with your tongues on fire."  - Gloria Anzaldua



     


    "The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life."  - Jane Addams


    "Never question what I am God knows/Cause it's coming from the heart"  - Chuck D


        Shaman and dear friend to Brian, Michael Dove discusses that which is "sacred" as being that which is essential to life.  Essential to the vitality of Brian's life are the sources, essences, and forces of love, empathy, compassion, and liberation.  It is this dynamic sacredness that impels Brian personally and professionally.  


        Brian is a poet, spoken word artist, and emcee from San Diego, CA.  He engages his artistry with a determination to interrelate and transform the human and divine, sorrow and joy, hurt and healing, and oppression and freedom.  Brian composes, records, and performs his artistry with the urgency of attending to an abandoned child's adoption, an institution's practice of discrimination and brutality, and our Mother Earth's rising temperatures.  In witnessing his artistry, audiences experience the texture of beckoning and forging self love, the Beloved Community, and communion with Source.  For more than a decade Brian has performed on stages throughout the country at countless open mics, poetry slams, schools, colleges and universities, music festivals, and neighborhood and community events.
