While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.
This week show we talk about how we can help our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We must help our ancestors who helped us and help the ones that are trying now to help us. But they can help themselves as well we are one. And questions please call in our guest line at (347) 327-9705

Bookstores are quickly becoming a thing of the past . . . just a distant memory . . . although this saddens me, it also causes me to reflect on how our access to information is rapidly changing. No longer must we hunt and peck with card catalogs, microfiche or encyclopedias, the world of information is at our fingertips. This not a novel revelation; however, it is reasonable to assume that our educational institutions may be next on the chopping block.
If colleges/universities exist to educate the next generation, what would become of them if the opportunities for education were made available online . . . for free? Would class warfare subside if any with access to the internet could access any school's curriculum? The future is now, my friends. . . did you know that MIT offers virtually the entire catalog of courses online . . .for free. Check it out: http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm or https://www.edx.org/ with courses from Harvard, Berkeley, MIT, and University of Texas.
So . . . with access to knowledge available to ALL . . .with no boundaries based on race, color, or creed . . . is the game changed? Not yet, because these courses come with no "piece of paper" to validate the student's participation and completion. They are presently for personal edification only . . . how long can that last? If the information (including lectures, required reading, and coursework) is available and the goal of education is . . . education . . . is the formal education system, as we know it, on its death bed?
Matt discusses this and more . . .

My special guest today is Kenneth L. Marcus the President and General Counsel of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law. Has been re scheduled to appear at a later time, when we will be discussing Anti Semitism that students face today in American Universities. The growing hate for Jews and Israel. But most important, we will see what one man is doing in his quest to "Securing the civil human rights of Jewish people and advancing justice for all"
What happens in the university is not contained within the campus. If nothing will be done to stop the hate, it is soon to spread all over our country.
The question to ask is: What can I do to help save America from disaster?
Securing the civil human rights of Jewish people and advancing justice for all!!!

Secular universities are closing their classical philosophy programs. But why? In a day and age where there is more confusion than ever, shouldn't universities be compelled to teach students how to think? Furthermore, it may be said that Christian universities like Liberty University, Biola University, and other likeminded schools will be the torch-bearers not only of Christ...but of logic and philosophy, as well. In this episode, we will interview philosopher J. Andrew Payne and get his take on the apparent takeover of proper thinking.
Tonigjht we will examine Sen Bernie Sanders' idea of free college tutition at State Universities for all. We will also talk about inequality and opportunity in America.
