    From Dysfunction To Restoration - How Do We Turn Our Black Neighborhoods Around

    in Current Events

    The past few weeks, we've talked about some of the external forces that have wrecked havoc on African American society in America.  From federal, state and local legislation, formal and implicit business policies and practices, and willing complicity and willfull ignorance of much of White America, African Americans have been subjected to disenfranchisement, discrimination and oppression in almost every aspect of life.  These are forces we have little control over, and we fight to bring these truths and their impacts to people's knowledge.


    But there are issues we face within our neighborhoods that are within our power to change that would serve us well, regardless of the outside forces.  These issues may not change or affect the outside forces at - in fact, would really have no bearing on them at all - but they would return us to a quality of life that we seem to have lost, and at one time served to sustain us through times much more violent and desperate than these.


    So today on Coffe, Current Events & Politics, we're going to begin a discussion about addressing some of the internal dysfunction in our neighborhoods, in order to find out how we can turn them around from the inside.

    Exploring Pittsburgh neighborhoods

    in Travel

    World Footprints is excited to share one of our new favorite cities --Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (despite our football rivalries).  When most people who have never visited Pittsburgh think of the city, they may envision an industrial city filled with tall smoke stakes.  In reality, Pittsburgh is a vibrant, colorful, modern and pristine city that is very welcoming. The three rivers that meet at a point creates a flowing calming energy and provided the inspiration for Dutch artist Florentjn Hofman to select the city as her North American debut of his giant rubber duck.  Today, we will give you a glimpse into this remarkable city as we explore Pittsburgh's rich history through attractions like the Senator John Heinz History Center, we'll walk through the streets of The Hill District and we'll relive Pittsburgh's industrial past as we tour the Carrie Blast Furnaces.

    Back In The Day Pt.2 - Straight Outta Our Hoods: The Crack Years

    in Current Events

    Today we're talking more about our 'hoods, specifically what happened to them as the new drug crack descended on them. We'll talk about how our communities changed, other factors that contributed to the chaos that many people outside of our neighborhoods didn't know about, the ways members of our communities fought that no one outside of them knew about, and how we still fight today to recover.


    We'll try to get to some government and local policies that factored in to the mix, and we'll try to touch on one of the biggest conspiracies in modern history that people still won't admit have some elements of truth to it.


    And of course, we'll be playing some of our favorite music from that time.


    Grab a big cup, we have some good coffee to share with you!

    Back In The Day When I Was Young: Luqman Nation Reminisces

    in Current Events

    The Luqmans are always talking about how life in our neighborhoods were different when we were growing up compared to today, but we rarely take the time to talk about the specific ways that life was different.  On this show, we're going to talk about some of those ways, as many as we can fit in.  From weekday and weekend chores to running errands for the elderly ladies in the neighborhood to school memories, we'll talk about all the good things that we have fond memories of from our childhoods, growing up in Camden, NJ (Mr. Luqman) and in SE Washington, DC (Mrs. Luqman), including some of the music that made up the soundtracks of our youth.


    And since we'll be talking about how our neighborhoods were different in our childhoods were different, we'll talk a little bit about why our neighborhoods are the way they are today.


    Plenty of coffee to go around, bring your cup!

    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.

    Abraham's Tent Radio Show - Politics: Leaderless, Threats to America

    in Politics Conservative

    Abraham's Tent Radio Show -  Political Agendas: Lack of Leadership, Threats to America, and more...


    Baltimore & Ferguson riots, lack of leadership, and the message given... allow the looting, stealing, and criminal element to do all they choose.  What part has POTUS and the Attorney General played in this activity?  Is this a distraction?  What did POTUS promise to deliver?  Islam participation!


    ____________________________________________________________


    A Pastor, a Rabbi, and a former Muslim convert to Christianity and Activists will discuss their views on religious and political topics. Abraham’s Tent Radio Show provides unique perspective on faith, politics and life.

    ABRAHAM’S TENT…NO SECRETS, NO AGENDAS, NO RETREAT.


    Abraham’s Tent is not predictable… it’s not politically correct, nor does it follow the old advice to never discuss religion and politics in polite company. The fact is, the show is all about the intersection of religion with politics and power, examined from the viewpoints of experts on Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Tune in for a frank discussion of the people and events shaping our neighborhoods and our world.
