    Legacy Of 1804 with New Film on Maurice Bishop and Grenada Revolution

    in Culture

    Host Alice Backer of www.kiskeacity.com and Michelle Materre, founder of Creatively Speaking Film Series and host of Creativey Speaking on the Air  welcome Bruce Paddington, maker of the documentary Forward Ever.  The film investigates the Grenadian revolution of 1979 which culminated in the killing of Maurice Bishop and several of his colleagues in 1983. (Bruce is with us for the first half hour.)


    We are then joined by Trinidadian-American trade unionist Roger Toussaint and cultural activist Martin Felix, who came of age in Grenada during the revolution, to explore aspects of this oft neglected chapter of Caribbean history. How was this movement for self-determination launched in the pre-social media era? Why did Reagan take exception to the building of an international airport in Grenada? Did US involvement start at the post-killing invasion or was the Grenadian movement for self-determination infiltrated and destabilized?


    Originally aired on Creatively Speaking On the Air June 18, 2014.


    Forward Ever will be screening FREE Friday June 20 at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn at 6PM and again at 4PM Saturday June 21 at Maisles Theater in Harlem.

    Maurice White is our Topic for tonight as Chris interviews vocalist Sherry Scott

    in Rock Music

    We go into some music history in light of the recent passing of Earth Wind & Fire's Maurice White (December 19, 1941 – February 3/4, 2016).


    Some question whether this death is recieving fair media coverage. One Facebook post from EWF fanpage "The Legendary Earth Wind & Fire stated:


    I'm sitting here going through the New York Daily News and he only received a small article on page 30. A couple of weeks ago when David Bowie and later Glen Frey they both received front page news. I hope the music industry does a better job of paying homage to someone who influenced many a musician. It would be befitting if at the Grammys when they receive the Lifetime Achievement Award they put that as a main part of the show instead of the backdrop as they normally do with this award. No disrespect to Bowie or Frey they deserve that recognition but Maurice does as well.


    We explore the contributions, music and legacy of White, from one of the first of many members of his best-selling band and how they rose to the top to compete with even the Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppellin, and Chicago in terms of sheer record sales, as well as many of the other funk/fusion bands of their era like Rufus, Ohio Players, Funkadelic and Parliament.

    The Maurice White Effect: Spirituality in Soul Music on The RICH Report

    in Spirituality

     We don't give enough homage to those of us that truly make an impact in the world until after the great ones have transitioned.  In the world of music, very few in the industry brought spirituality to their music the way Maurice White and Earth Wind & Fire .  E W F took us to a higher level of consciousness in a way only a few other bands could match.  Join Gabriel Rich and his guest host on Thursday as we pay our respect to the man, Maurice White and his music. We'll discuss the state of music today and what we can do to regain the spirituality that's sorely missing from it today.

    St. Marguerite Bourgeoys - Without Walls

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    “God closes a door and then opens a window,” people sometimes say when dealing with their own disappointment or someone else’s. That was certainly true in Marguerite’s case. Children from European as well as Native American backgrounds in seventeenth-century Canada benefited from her great zeal and unshakable trust in God’s providence.


    Marguerite at the age of 20 believed that she was called to religious life. Her applications to the Carmelites and Poor Clares were unsuccessful. 


    In 1654, the governor of the French settlement in Canada invited her to come to Canada and start a school in Ville-Marie.


    Soon after starting a school, she realized her need for coworkers. Returning to Troyes, she recruited a friend, Catherine Crolo, and two other young women. In 1667 they added classes at their school for Indian children. A second trip to France three years later resulted in six more young women and a letter from King Louis XIV, authorizing the school.


    Marguerite established a school for Indian girls in Montreal. At the age of 69, she walked from Montreal to Quebec in response to the bishop’s request to establish a community of her sisters in that city. By the time she died, she was referred to as the “Mother of the Colony.” Marguerite was canonized in 1982.

    Race & Relations: The American Judicial System

    in The Bible

    The television is bombarded with images of the injustice of African Americans in this country and while Lady Justice is sitting quietly, turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the continuous pain and unfair mistreatment of African Americans, it's clear that though others may not value the lives of our black youths--something has to be done!


    Bishop McKinney addresses a lot of the concerns that surrounds the judicial system regarding black lives and what we need to do as a community and as a race of people to become economically ahead and not participate in destroying the lives of our fellow black sisters and brothers because it truly is a spiritual warfare!  We must be ahead of the game and stop refusing to be last when everyone who is not of African descent has benefited off of the sweat and blood of our African ancestors.  We must educate ourselves by putting down the video games and picking up a book.  We must empower ourselves by being filled with the spirit of God so that he can direct our footsteps and we must not kill each other, leaving another heartbroken parent to carry the pain of grief because the life of her/his child was snuffed out.


    Did Dr. Martin Luther King and so many march for nothing?  Did Rosa Park refuse to sit in the back of the bus for no reason?  Was Harriet Tubman's Underground Railroad in vain? But more importantly, does Black Lives Matter?
