Join The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Lak, Hip Hop at it's best!
Larry “LAK” Henderson is the founder of Smart Music Entertainment, and the creator of a new sound of hip-hop music that is used as a tool to educate and awaken the consciousness of youth and people in our communities. His album, Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, has hit Amazon bestseller lists (#1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in Educational Music), and has received airplay on major radio stations around the world, due to his combination of deep, historical insights and authentic hip-hop sound.
The album features songs about African and African-American history, politics, geography, money management, and commentary on the social war raging in our urban communities. CBS calls Lesson One “creative, innovative, and informative.” Dominion of New York Magazine says, “Most people who use hip-hop to educate do so badly. Lak does it so well.”
Lak is a social critic, history and religion intellectual, and an innovative education advocate. Through his company’s Smart Music Insights initiative, he offers free performances and educational workshops for urban youth; guidance for parents and youth educators on ways to foster learning; and original songwriting to support awareness campaigns for positive community organizations. Lak holds degrees in Africana Studies, Communications, and Labor Studies from Rutgers University, and studied studio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research.
Lak has been featured as a guest on a host of radio and television programs, including London UK’s BANG 103.6 FM, CBS, KMOJ 89.9 FM Minneapolis, WVON 1690 AM Chicago, WPRB 103.3 FM Princeton University, WRSU 88.7 FM Rutgers University, WMNF 88.5 Tampa, BET, LA Talk Radio, and many more.
It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment).
Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.
According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.
For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.
What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP? Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP? We're going to cover all of this and more!
If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you!
We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.
Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).

At the forum today we will discuss the topic "Stealing the Revolution." We will explore how, throughout history, a well meaning majority or minority have fought and struggled to create a beautiful, fair and just society for everyone, only to have those who are anti-social and with borderline peronalities, repeatedly move in, drive them out, and make the system a little more sick each time.
Welcome to The Forum where you can explore new topics and look at the world in a newer, more exciting way.

Is the White House Educational Policy impacting your child's ability to get a quality education?
Before, it was Bush with No Child Left Behind; now, it is Obama with Race to the Top.
How is the White House Education policy driving Quality Education and Student Progress / Success? Are we really closing the 'GAP'? Do we understand Common Core, School Ratings, the Charter School Movement and Teacher Evaluation?
What do we really think about the National Education Policy?

…”If you teach him all about your language, he will know all your secrets, and he is then no more a slave, for you can’t fool him any longer, and BEING A FOOL IS ONE OF THE BASIC INGREDIENTS OF ANY INCIDENTS TO THE MAINTENANCE OF THE SLAVERY SYSTEM.” ~~ Willie Lynch – speech delivered on the bank of the James River in the colony of Virginia in 1712.
Most Blacks have heard of the Willie Lynch Letter/Speech, but many have not read it. Over time, I’ve heard some blacks indicate that they didn’t believe that this letter/speech is authentic. But for the majority of blacks, it is believed to be REAL.
If you’ve read the Willie Lynch Letter, you will find there are specific instruction on the making and maintaining of a slave. Two years after the Emancipation Proclamation in 1865, slavery was considered unlawful and ended. However, the effects of bondage remains; prejudices and racism remain, as we see in recent events in Ferguson, Missouri; and so does the remnants of the Willie Lynch Letter.
On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to discuss the Willie Lynch Letter and how it still remains as part of our life, and how it shows up in the lives of Blacks today. We’re going to examine the parallels of when it was written, and how it relates to us today.
Please join us on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 9pm PDT/11pm CDT/ 12 Midnight EDT.
We invite you to listen and comment by calling (646)200-3148. Or listen from your computer or from the HTTR app, and join the chatroom conversation.
