Dennis is a self-taught Detroit native who was incarcerated for 24 years straight. While in prison he educated himself in a similar manner as The Honor Malcolm X did, or as we say here at George Jackson University, he “Transformed the criminal mentality into the Revolutionary New Afrikan Mentality.” His academic area of interest is political science, especially its subfield, International Relations. When he was finally released from prison just 25 months ago, he went on to become a successful business owner as well as a full-time honors college student. Not only that, in the spirit of Harriet Tubman, he did not forget about those still in bondage: He founded Scholars Behind Bars, a non-profit organization geared towards providing a college-equivalent education to inmates nationwide. Specifically, Scholars Behind Bars mail out actual college textbooks to inmates based upon their academic interests, rather it be psychology, engineering, sociology, business, political science, economics, etc. This is significant because back in 1993 they terminated funding education for prisoners trying to seek higher learning. Today, college textbooks are as high as $350.00 per book; there is no way a prisoner--making 17 cents an hour--can afford to purchase a textbook. Scholars Behind Bars mail out textbooks to prisoners free of charge upon request and an initial screening. Scholars Behind Bars have active college professors who will supply syllabus to those prisoners showing exceptional dedication. Scholars Behind Bars only ask that those who care send donations to help the organization pay for the postage cost of mailing out each book. George Jackson University and Scholars Behind Bars are looking to work hand in hand as it is obviously necessary. Please tune and find out more about the good work our brother is doing internationally. He is also the founder of The Center for Pan-African Studies, which we will also discuss in detail.
Black Scholars You Should Know
Due to the pervasive influence of white supremacy all information pertaining to Melanated persons must be questioned. To be more specific, all history and knowledge that has been acquired from those who embrace this great white deception, must be examined and vetted. Enter the great Black scholars who have done just that.
Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, November 5 at 9 pm EST as we explore and discuss a few of our great Melanated brothers and sisters who researched, uncovered, and delivered priceless scholarly works that served to enlighten and edify those who were sleeping, in denial, or just didn't want to know. Works that demonstrate just how important the Black man has been to America and the world.
One such brother is Ivan van Sertima who wrote "They Came before Columbus." Showing that Africans reached the so called New World prior to Columbus.
Dr, Frances Cress Welsing who wrote "The Isis Papers" wherein she details how whites are fighting for their very survival due to their lack of dominant genes.
Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan who wrote 49 books which primarily detailed the significance of the Melanated man in Western cultures.
In addition to all of these brilliant scholars, brother Dennis Jefferson will be stopping by for another episode of Healthy Matters.

This week I will have photographer extraordinaire Ricky Codio, another scholar who has built huge pyramids with his artistic skills. He will be giving insight into his profession, his success in this competitive field, and how an Afrikan centered education helped to develop his talent and perspective.
And finally, I will be giving a full report on my visit to NYC to enjoy the 4th Annual Black Comic Book Fair at the Schomburg Center, (and since I'll be in Harlem any other points of interest, I'm excited). I know I will bring back many new Afrikan centered books and learning tools to share. Once again join me as we journey to unravel "The Mind Beneath the School".

Al Hamdulillah, our brother Sufyan Al Andalusi, will once again come on our show and help us understand the true meaning of love for Allah(swt), His Prophet, The Companions, and the Scholars.
MOST people have heard of the phrase "Spare The Rod...Spoil The Child" which INCIDENTLY is a 'short phrase' that derives from Proverbs 13:24 which states "He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes"
THIS is MORE than just DISCIPLINING our children when they are misbehaving. We are SPOILING the child when we DON"T equip them for life! When we DON"T make sure they get the QUALITY EDUCATION that they are going to NEED to make it in this world....The Ability to ANALYZE...PROBLEM-SOLVE....CALCULATE things WITHOUT the use of a computer..etc
CEO and FOUNDER of "The Growing Scholars Educational Center" and the Head of Elite Scholars STEAM academy has BEGUN to do the work!
Prayerfully OTHER educational systems will GET THIS...GET where we are coming from! PREPARE our youth for the REAL WORLD!!!

And that is brother Siddeeq Jihad. I think that most of us know him.Brother Siddeeq Jihad would you please stand and face the audience... I would highly recommend this book for you all, who are studying (grown-ups) but also for our youngsters who are studying separate organized Qur’aanic Studies classes and who are also studying in our school system. Clara Muhammad School System like the one in Atl., Wash. D.C., Chi. & many other places. I highly recommend this book... Qur’aanic Arabic with lessons and studies to improve your ability to read the Qur’aan and get more understanding and to qualify yourself, In-shaa Allah to be a teacher one day.

Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.
Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson. His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.
Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.
In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.
