Albert William Vogt III was born in Winfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, on January 28, 1980. He lived there until the age of ten when his family moved to Florida. Despite being transplanted, he continued to root for Chicago sports team and loved returning to the land of his birth whenever possible. He also grew to love history, mostly because of his father, who would feed his head of tales of Napoleon and the Grand Armee. It was that love of history that led him to pursue a PhD in American History at Loyola University in Chicago.
While at Loyola, Albert concentrated on cultural and social history. He wrote his dissertation, titled "The Costumed Catholic: Catholics, Whiteness, and the Movies, 1928-1973," which focuses on how Catholics have been portrayed on American film throughout much of the twentieth century. It was enough to earn him his PhD, which was officially conferred in August of 2013.
After Loyola, Albert returned to Florida where he teaches at the University of South Florida - St. Petersburg in the history department, and online for St. Leo University. He also has a novel coming out through Tate Publishing titledBob the Time Traveler. He also has a history consulting firm that he runs with his business partner, Jacob K. Friefeld, called Of Historical Interest.
I think that should cover it. My business website is www.ofhistoricalinterest.com.

There aren't very many people left in the world who will not agree that Black America has some serious issues.
Not just "issues" like everybody else, but some very serious mental and emotional health, as well as socio-economic problems that are directly related to racism.
Toure of MSNBC used the words "The Power of Whiteness" to answer a female who stated that "her ancestors came here with nothing and made it work" (not). His word covered VOLUMES of truth about the impact of skin-color racism on Black people around the world; Black people of all shades, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Impossible as it is to write a book in six words or less, Toure achieved this in FOUR: The Power of Whiteness.
No one in the world can claim that bigotry and prejudice -even when it comes from Black people- has affected and impacted them the way racism has impacted us.
Last time, we talked about "Plantation Picaninnies": The subjection, objectification and abuse of Black women.
We already know what happened to us -we've heard it over and over- but there is a bigger picture about what we do to ourselves that self-implodes and hampers and impedes our own social and moral progress.
Why? What's wrong? What will it take before we "get it," or will someone else give it us first?
Tune in for the next segment of "Plantation Picaninnies": Black People Need to Come Clean.
Tune in Friday night, May 10 at 9PM EST/6PM PST as Stacey Brewer of H. Blu's Word speaks on the topic: Terrorism: Birmingham to Boston; The Power of Whiteness. In modern times, we often speak of terrorism coming from those who are not Americans or Christians (9/11 attacks) or from those who are perhaps influenced by foreign extremists who are against the American dream (i.e. Boston Marathon bombing), but Monday we will also remember the domestic terrorism of our past that was o
Dr. Stepheny Rose will talk about her book Abolishing White Masculinity From Mark Twain to Hip Hop: Crisis in Whiteness. With the current comments by Mark Cuban and Donald Sterling, this will be a timely discussion.
In the second part of the program, I will be hosting a musical tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Vincent Harding, civil and human rights champion.

The first guest in our special Black History Month series is filmmaker and executive director of World Trust Shakti Butler, PhD. Dr. Butler is the producer and director of several documentary films including, The Way Home, Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible and the forthcoming Cracking the Codes: Race & Relationships in the 21st Century.
As her extensive and impressive biography states: "Dr. Butler invites her audience to grapple with both the intellectual and emotional complexities of race. She conveys the interconnection between internal/personal and external/structural components of racial inequity, and reveals how self-perpetuating systems reinforce disparities in institutions."
Join ITYC as we talk to Dr. Butler about her work and how we as parents can help shift the conversation about racial and social justice in 2012.
This one starts out with the usual 2 minute, detailed trigger warning and then it goes into some personal journals and a news story.
From there I did something different and instead of having a Fun Fifteen after the 30 minute show, I took clips that would go into the Fun Fifteen (minutes) and cut them into the bulk show.
