    100 Pennies: Poverty, Sexual Abuse and a Childhood Abandoned

    in Women

    100 Pennies is the story of a young girl living in Quebec, growing up in such poverty that she often fantasized that if she could get people to give her pennies; 100 pennies in fact, she would be rich and could change her life and the lives of her family forever.

    An autobiography in the works, the Voice of Leadership's guest is Gaetane Martin, author of 100 Pennies, who graciously and with intense vulnerability, shares her story with our listeners.

    Gaetane sheds light on her work, speaking to educators and therapists about the importance of listening to children, and the indiscriminant scope of poverty and hunger, and its impact on our future: our children. 

    This is part one of 100 Pennies: the beginning. Part two airs next week and takes our guest through to a life that is savored and sends a message of love.

    Foods, Drinks, and Holiday Traditions

    in Culture

    Sweet bread, a cross between a rich bread & dessert, is made from yeast dough, thus requiring home bakers to work like elves all night long to mix, knead, & bake the breads. The sweetness comes from a combination of sugar & dried fruits, while spices typically include cloves, nutmeg, mace, cardamom, & cinnamon. Some bakers combine dried fruits like raisins, currents, & prunes in a large bottle & steep them in rum or brandy for several weeks - or months - before adding to the batter. Whole pieces of dried fruits, including candied red & green cherries, are artistically laid in the top of the dough to make a signature design.

    Traditionally, even neediest families had a big ham at Christmastime. This was either purchased from pennies saved or as a gift from a thoughtful neighbor, employer, or even shopkeeper. Decades ago, it was common for Virgin Islands' grocers to hand out hams to their customers in appreciation for their patronage during the year.

    Island residents today line up outside refrigerated trailers to purchase their Christmas pine imported from the U.S. main-land. Long ago, they instead went in search of an inkberry tree or the brown dried stalk of a century plant or agave that had flowered a few months prior. Both of these grew in the wild; the inkberry in the islands' forests and the century plant or agave on the arid eastern end of the islands. The trees or stalks were brought inside, propped up in a rock-filled container & decorated with items such as small candies, crepe paper or bits of fabric.

    End Institutional Racism Before Racism Destroy America

    in Politics Progressive

    Racism in America is not like racism was a century ago. Once upon a time Blacks accepted being treated as property. I'm not referring to the days of slavery. I refer to the time after slavery was abolished. Blacks most definitely was referred to as a lot of things none of which we'll talk about here. After slavery Blacks were acceptant of names, and adjectives to describe their actions. Blacks were told what to do and when to do it. Racism was a way of life  for Whites and Blacks. Blacks were oppressed and just staying alive and not being beat was a successful day. Through all the troubles of daily life Blacks kept the faith, did the work, and made the necessary changes to gain respect of the people they now slaved for scraps and basically pennies. Change wasn't easy for Blacks nor the majority race then nor now. Even when we want change, when others fight against the change or just refuse the change it is most difficult to change. America we must change our actions toward one another. We must end institutional racism before racism  destroy America. Racism is real. Racism is visited upon Blacks daily by Whites. There is no Black racism. Skin supremacy exist but today it is more money than skin

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with One of Our Favorites: Slim Man!

    in Music

    Yes, you are correct - you have seldom seen the word "Favorite" in the title of the show :)  The most versatile Renaissance Man that we're featuring is the reason.  Besides being so staggeringly talented, Slim is also a friend.  And it's ALWAYS a pleasure to welcome him back!

    Baltimore born and bred, Slim (aka Tim Camponeschi) became smitten with music at the age of five.  That's when Dad took him to see "The Five Pennies" with Danny Kaye and Louis Armstrong.  So strong was the inspiration that Slim took trumpet lessons for ten years.  And he taught himself both guitar and piano.  Singing all the while.  Oh, thank God for THAT!  If you know our Hunk's voice, then you have heard Audible Silk.  Dean Martin without the dry martini :-D

    Seriously, this profile could wax poetic from now until showtime - that's how cool of a background we're discussing. From the first gig, singing Beatles' songs at the six grade graduation - to his middle school band, Momma Max - to his education at the Peabody Institute - to the Motown office of Roxanne Gordy in New York City where he signed his published deal (and a song on Angie Bofill's debut CD!).  There's more: Stiff Records (yes) signed him and "Boot Camp" had two of the 100 videos first seen on MTV.  A re-recording of songs originally done by another artist put Slim Man on the map - so did Bona Fide, the group he founded in the late 90's.  "X-Ray Hip" was a number one song that still get played all over the globe.  And Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn will never forget Our Guy - Slim was the one who discovered him via the nationwide Marlboro search.

    TV, screenplays, authentic Italian cooking - whaddya want?!  A new Kickstarter will launch his cookbook (days left!) and a BIG charitable event happens SOON - please welcome our Friend, Slim Man!

    Suspense Radio One on One with Treva Hall Melvin

    in Books

    Suspense Radio One on One with Treva Hall Melvin. Suspense Radio One on One is brought to you by Suspense Magazine and in partnership with partners in crime tours. 

    Synopsis: Mr. Samuel's Penny

    It’s 1972 and fourteen-year-old New Yorker Elizabeth Landers is sent to the sleepy town of Ahoskie, North Carolina to spend the summer with relatives. Her expectation of boredom is quickly dispelled when police sirens and flashing lights draw her to a horrible scene at the Danbury Bridge. Mr. Samuel, owner of Samuel’s Lumber Yard, has driven his car off the bridge and into the river, drowning himself and his daughter. The medical examiner thinks it’s an accident, but the Sheriff finds fresh bullet holes on the bridge right where the skid marks are. Curiously, Mr. Samuel died clutching a unique 1909 wheat penny—a penny that is then stolen from the Sheriff’s office. Lizbeth witnesses Miss Violet’s grief upon learning that her husband and child are dead, and decides she will help by finding the penny.

    Her search involves Lizbeth in the lives of many Ahoskie residents. Like the owner of the grocery store, mean old Mr. Jake, who—as all the kids in Ahoskie know—hates black folks. Plenty of pennies in his till. Then there is Ms. Melanie Neely, otherwise known as “Ms. McMeanie,” who thinks the lumber yard should belong to her. And Mr. Samuel’s handsome brother Ben, who struggles to keep the business afloat after his more clever brother’s death. Lizbeth searches through the collection plates at church and in the coin jars of crazy old Aunt Ode, a strange old woman missing one eye and most of her teeth, who keeps a flask in her apron pocket and a secret in her soul.
