Author Philip Reiss of Blue Eyes on African American History will be my guest on 12/7/14 @3pm EST.
Our conversation will cover Philip's career and discussion about his book. We will also talk about the recent uprising in Ferguson Missourri and with Eric Garner.
Until Bayard Rustin’s lecture in the fall of 1962, no other person had brought author Philip Reiss so far toward gaining an understanding of what it was like for African-Americans living as second-class citizens in this nation, which sponsors a pledge calling for “liberty and justice for all.”
The Rustin lecture became Reiss’s point of departure on his quest to learn more fully of the African-American experience; it prompted him to become aware and to truly understand that the entire nation shared responsibility for the dilemma of deep-seated injustices that African-Americans constantly faced. In Blue Eyes on African-American History, Reiss provides an account of a white professor’s learning and teaching about African-American history from 1970 to 1999 at a SUNY community college.
Reiss includes specifics of how and why he took on the challenge of teaching African-American history and discusses the historical events he deems critical for understanding of that history. His study relates the impact of economic exploitation facilitated by racism and how these twin evils are central to the African-American historical narrative.
Along with factual history, this volume intersperses some of Resiss’s experiences as a young boy, as a young adult serving in the military, and as a professor teaching his course. It provides unique insight into a turbulent time in America.
On this Episode We will talk to Mr. Tambuzi about the significance of African American History. Mr. Tambuzi is one fo the the people who influenced me to do more and be more.

Racism seems to be so ingrained in American culture, it's as if it's being taught. Attitudes of disrespect and disdain toward African Americans are reinforced by stereotypes of criminal behavior, low morals, incompetence, laziness and ignorance. But the real history and legacy of African Americans shows just the opposite. How do we change negative beliefs about a major segment of America's population? Should African American history be a required course for all school children? Would that improve race relations among the youth? What about adults? Should employees in sensitive positions such as those jobs related to criminal justice be required to take an African American history course to sensitize them? Filmaker Lia Crawford and Author and historian Alvin Boyce Munson discuss some little known facts about African Americans that could change attitude regarding race, if made widely known

It is Black History Month and time to honor our Mother Africa! Join u for a special tribute to Africa The Cradle of Civilization. Scientists who compared the skulls and DNA of human remains from around the world say their results point to modern humans (Homo sapiens) having a single origin in Africa.
Only Out of Africa
Studies support the single origin, or "out of Africa" theory for anatomically modern humans, which says that these early humans colonized the planet after spreading out of the continent some 50,000 years ago.
