That’s because ‘things’ hold energy. It’s like walking around with a full bag of garbage on our shoulders. It doesn’t take long before the weight is too much to bear and it wears us out.

    THE CHEA K. WOOLFOLK SHOW w/ Stylist Mel J. Williams & Inventor Fernando Wright

    in Radio

    The Chea K. Woolfolk Show is a show about life, inspiration, business and personal growth. Woolfolk is a Louisville, KY native who began manufacturing unique health and beauty products that she felt were absent from the market, which eventually led to an offer and buyout from the multinational consumer goods company, Proctor & Gamble. She is the owner of Kymberli Shoe Designs LLC and a Marketing/Branding expert.


    Listen as "GAME CHANGER" Chea K. Woolfolk and her "GAME CHANGING" guests talk about how they "CHANGED THE GAME."


    Tonight's guests:



    Mel J. Williams, C.E.O. of Mending the Tresses, author ,and owner of Someting Special Styling Salon, located in Dallas County, off Hwy 183 in Irving by the old Texas Stadium. 
    Fernando Wright inventor of the Table Top Butler and  of TB Wright Group (also appeared in Who's Who African-American Profiles)


    After a bad experience at a restaurant in 2007, Wright and his then-girlfriend were sat at a table that hadn’t been bussed. He thought to himself that there must be a way for restaurants to keep the tables cleaner between diners. A few nights later he woke up with the idea for the Table Butler, a multi-purpose organizing system that is currently available at Louisville-area Wal-Mart and online at www.tablebutler.com . 


    Most of Wright’s attention now is focused on the TB Wright Group, the company he founded to distribute the Table Butler.  Ultimately, he would like his company to be a place where other people could bring their ideas for him to manufacture.  “I try to work with as many black businesses as I can. I want to help young black kids get experience in manufacturing.  I’d like to see more of kids being creative.

    "Fixing OUR Politics: Bakerizing"


    Black elected officials are failing us. Federal, state and local public policy either eliminates us or suffocates us. We must fix our politics. Join us in exploring this crisis. Educate, agitate and organize.We must 'Bakerize'. Black citizens continue to suffer the absence of a strategic effective political infrastructure wherein education, organizing, caucus and activism can flourish to make a difference to eliminate a crushing disenfranchisement and political impotence.

    Move to Amend Reports w/ Laura Bonham & Egberto Willies

    in Politics

    JANUARY 28, 2016


    The politics of hate is strong in the 2016 election cycle, and its rhetoric has few bigger targets than the people of the Muslim community. US history reveals a longstanding pattern by the ruling class using systems of oppression to divide and conquer the masses, with the poor and middle class of all colors being its biggest targets. Islam is no exception to this oppression, as the religion practiced by over 2 billion people is a frequent target for right-wing corporate networks seeking to make money off spreading fear and misinformation which fuels anti-Islamic extremism in the United States and a highly-profitable “War on Terror” in the Middle East.


    As communities of color mobilize movements for black lives and immigrant rights, the Muslim community is also rising to challenge the systems of racism and other oppressions still being enforced. We confront the problem of Islamophobia in American politics and clear up the common misconceptions about Islam in a conversation with Maheen Ahmed from the Sacramento Valley chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
