Harvey Boyd reflects on his extraordinary life and opportunities as an African American man during the time of segregation. He begins by describing his childhood home--which is still his current residence--in Crestdale, North Carolina, located southeast of Charlotte in Matthews. During the interview, Harvey emphasizes his passion for art, and the black community’s view that becoming an artist was not an option for an African American man at the time. Harvey decided to transfer to West Charlotte High School in order to take art classes, and afterward he attended CPCC, acquiring an Associate’s degree in graphic design.

Harvey recounts his experiences working for the Charlotte Observer in advertising, particularly in regard to the moments when he became more aware of segregation. After working in Charlotte for a few years, Harvey attended Howard University in Washington, DC and worked for the Washington Post. Harvey describes the differences he saw in a non-segregated city and his experiences as both an employee at the Washington Post and a student at Howard University. He emphasizes the influence of one of his African American art professors--Lois Mailou Jones--who confirmed that a career as an artist was possible for an African American.

In a laid back lazy Sunday afternoon conversation at the Scurv Sanctuary, we shared a wonderful conversation about actor Denzel Washington which started with his outstanding role in the movie "Flight" which focused on his character's fight with drug and alcohol addiction as well as his denial to face the fact that he had a huge problem.
We spoke on how society has evolved for the worst and where we stand as a people in the year 2014.
Interesting exchange indeed and we would love to hear your feedback, thoughts and comments to continue such an important dialogue.

Rez and Andy hit the streets in Washington state where they're making history as one of the only places in the world where you can buy marijuana legally.
They'll talk to one of the owners of the first Spokane Marijuana shop to open, Green Leaf, and find out how it all went. They'll also talk to the first man who purchased marijuana and then get fired, the owners of what everyone's calling the city's first "Bed and Bud"--the 1899 House, a medical doctor who will explain what it means to "Drive high, get a DUI!", the owner of Cinder Marijuana Shop in Spokane Valley who says his store is being blocked from opening, and lots of live opinions from the streets.
Will it be a good thing for Washington? Should the rest of the country do the same? Will the federal government eventually come in and close it down? Will the legal prices be too high for consumers? "Let's Talk about it!"
Call in and talk about legalized marijuana.

Blowing Smoke: Rethinking the War on Drugs by Dr. Michael Reznicek
Reba Riley is the debut author of Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome: A Memoir of Humor & Healing In 30 Religions, the founder of the Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome community online, and a blogger at Patheos.com
Reba grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home where the wallpaper & dinner napkins featured Bible verses, & the Smurfs were considered demonic. She told her kindergarten class the letters of Santa's name could be arranged to "Satan." Reba’s 10,000 hours of education included evangelical schools, Christian college followed by a stint at the Focus of the Family Institute with Dr. James Dobson, and an intensive ministry training program at a megachurch in Colorado Springs—a program that swiftly kicked her out when she shared her religious doubts with the leadership. Reba lost everything - including herself. Enter Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome.
Reba got sick. Really sick. With a near-debilitating chronic mystery illness doctors couldn’t diagnose or treat. At 29, the illness made her vulnerable enough that she finally had to face the fact she’d avoided for the better part of a decade: her spirit was sicker than her body. Reba decided to undertake a spiritual recovery program: she would visit thirty religions before her thirtieth birthday—not to find a religion, but to find peace.
Through her adventures, Reba realized she didn’t have to choose religion to choose God…or good. She discovered sometimes we have to get lost to get found. Two years after completing her thirty religions project and eighteen months after recovering from her illness, Reba is here to share dispatches from her journey of healing.
Marijuana is finally legalised for use in Washington State. So you're from Vancouver B.C. and you think you can drive down to Smoke Marijuana in Seattle. U.S. Customs & Border Protection pulls you aside after you tell them you are coming down for Marijuana. They ask you if you smoke marijuana and you say yes. Well you have now just opened a barrel of rattle snakes. Plus you now have got one step closer to needing a us entry waiver. We will discuss this very sensitive issue. Admitting to CBP ABOUT ANYTHING DRUG RELATED is essentially you giving them the rope to hang yourself, standing on the gallows, paying them to tie youyr hands behind your back and then yelling at them to pull the lever. We will discuss their reasoning behind it, their interrogation techniques and what you can expect to happen to you. YOU MAY END UP NEEDING A US ENTRY WAIVER.
