Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right.
America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates, and prisoners are released every day. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them.
Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.
Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass
Ted Chabasinski is an attorney and human rights activist in Berkeley, California. In 1944, as a 6-year-old boy so intellectually gifted he jumped from first grade to third he was taken from his home in the Bronx to New York’s Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced “schizophrenic”, because his mother had been labelled “schizophrenic”. There he began a series of 20 electro-convulsive shock treatments. The boy, Ted Chabasinski, was one of hundreds of children used in ECT experiments. Tests since condemned as barbaric. He remained an inmate in a state psychiatric hospital until the age of seventeen. Chabasinski survived and became active in the civil rights movement and ultimately an attorney.
Ted has organized an International Day of Protest Against Shock Treatment, being held on May 16, 2015. There will be demonstrations in many countries and cities around the world.

he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.
Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents

Bipolar Disorder is one of the top ten causes of medical disability and mortality in the World. Developing more effective and more rapidly acting treatments, especially for the depression phase which is the most debilitating, depends on a better understanding of the causes of bipolar disorders. This blog radio talk by two of Columbia University’s experts on bipolar disorder will describe the latest results from brain imaging studies and regulation of the body’s inflammatory defenses. It will explain how these findings can lead to new treatment approaches and diagnostic tools.

For over four hundred years the Stolen Afrikan in AmeriKKKa has been robbed of the ancestry, their Afrikan spirituality, their science and their Story, they have been uprooted and are quickly dying.
THE FINAL WAKE UP CALL:
The results of governmental institutional racism & genocide are chaotic; single parent households, unwed mothers, incarceration coupled with mis-education and the under educated have practically destroyed the black family. Their right minds are being destroyed with religion, drug addition, the prison & education system.
The continuous bombardments of the court systems manipulation and negative media influence have taken a toll targeted on black children, men and women.
Society has brainwashed the black women into believing that they don't need their black men.
Our women don't believe this because they refuse to see their own reflection, which is their black man because society has convinced the black females to destroy the only true hope for their survival....The Black Man!
The Black Lions are here to help our women experience the presence of a man so they do not try to defunct his true nature.
The Black Lions are here to take back our communities, businesses, families & kin our children and our women.
...Maybe then our black women will discover that A Black Man was all she really needed in the first place.
We need our women by our side in the revolution.
