Sandra Bullock is the latest in a collection of white celebrities to adopt an African American child. This set off a firestorm or comments, and accusations that at times had the race card being tugged on by all sides.
Transracial adoptions, feel good patronizing attempts at reparations, or unbiased child adoptions? Would you adopt a child that wasn't the same race as you?
We look deep into it all on this episode of The Experience

Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.
Tonight on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com, we'll talk with Jamel Robinson, founder of the Jamel Robinson Child Welfare Reform Initiative!
1837-1915 Amanda Berry Smith devoted her life to the ministry of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. Her most noted achievement is the opening of the first orphanage for black children in Illinois.
In 1899, the orphanage opened its doors to homeless African American girls. The 12-room brick house that served as the orphanage was the first of its kind in Illinois.
The community at large was receptive to Smith’s evangelical message and supported the presence of the orphanage. By 1910, the building housed 33 children, up from 12 in 1900
In Harvey, Illinois, a suburb founded by temperance groups south of Chicago, Smith took up the duties of the national representative for the WCTU, and wrote her life’s story. An Autobiography: The Story of the Lord’s Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith, the Colored Evangelist was published in 1893. Through book sales, donations, and lecturing fees, she began to raise money for a new cause: an orphanage for black children. She founded and distributed a small newspaper, The Helper, in order to generate publicity and income for the orphanage and other worthy charities
In New York City, there are nearly 14,000 children in foster care, with almost 6,000 new youth entering the system every year. Of those youth, approximately 1/3 are between the ages of 13-19, and less than 20% expect to be adopted. That equates to 1,100 youth aging out of the foster care system in New York each year without a permanent home, family or support network.
Author Ingrid Brown was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was educated in Illinois, Oklahoma and Kansas. She receive a Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma. After working in a number of fields of social work including adoptions, mental health, higher education and working as a medical social, Ingrid is now retired and is free to pursue her first love; writing. Ingrid is the author of a mystery entitled Village Vengeance and has a new release, Miss Sadie's Song, a work of historical fiction.

the lack of laws and programs for those who leave the foster care system with nothing. There will also be tough quiestions that

in education, given same things as children who are adopted or living foster homes? As well as many other things
