    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome Southern Rock/Blues/Country music singer songwriter, Donica Knight. Hailing from Millbrook, AL., Knight has just begun to scratch the surface in Nashville. As she might tell you, she is still in the top of the first inning of her career. But what a ride her fans are in for!

Along with her tireless drive to perfect her craft, Knight’s distinctive voice is a breath of fresh air in the country format.  Donica’s unique blend of Southern rock, country, blues and old East Memphis music has led to a rigorous touring schedule in the Southeast, performing more than 350 dates, opening for both country and rock superstars, as diverse as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx, Hank Williams Jr., Kid Rock, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Kenny Rogers, Scotty McCreery, Jamey Johnson, Little River Band, Skid Row, Kellie Pickler, Blackberry Smoke, Joe Nichols, REO Speedwagon, The Band Perry, Chris Young, 3 Doors Down and many others. Her new single "Love Ain't A Prize" taken from her forthcoming EP, "Can't Buy A Southern Girl" releases on November 1, 2015. The EP is slated for early 2016 release. We will talk to Donica about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops.

    Memphis on Race, Schools, Politics, Poverty & Taxes

    in Education

    The November Special Edition (1 hour) will feature two special guests who are the chief architects for the ongoing merger of Shelby County and Memphis City Public Schools - David Pickler and Martavius Jones.  The unification is considered to be the largest school district consolidation in American history. Fraught with historical tensions, issues of race and equity, this is a consolidation ambitious both in scale and momentum. Actions by members of the Memphis and Shelby school boards, local city councils, a 2011 referendum, and ongoing lawsuits have divided the local landscapes along political lines.  
    Discussions about a possible consolidation occurred as far back as October / November 2010, spurred by a proposal by  David Pickler (SCPS) to authorize special district status to Shelby School District. In response, Martavius Jones (MCPS) proposed the city of Memphis relinquish its charter. What followed has proven to be a hugely influential series of efforts to reform two very different school districts, the implications of which may reverberate in school districts across the USA.
     
    However, the move has divided community members, parents, and local residents due to the significance of the logistical, legal, and community challenges such a substantial consolidation process poses. Some of the issues it raises for those directly affected include, but are not limited to:
    Memphis teachers are unionized, Shelby County’s are not.
    The county owns its buses, the city has historically relied on a contractor.
    Both use different textbooks and different curriculums
    Each district implements different teacher evaluation systems.
    Median family income in Memphis is $32,000 a year vs. suburban average of $92,000.
    85 percent of students in Memphis are black vs. 38 percent in Shelby County are black.
    Join us for what will certainly be an amazing discussion.
