Host Deardra Shuler talks to Charles Bobbit, James Brown friend and manager. Bobbit will talk about his rags to riches story with Deardra. Bobbit also managed Michael Jackson and was the personal advisor to President Omar Bongo of Gabon. Born in 1930, in the back woods of North Carolina, Charles was whisked to Brooklyn, NY by his eldest sister after the loss of his mother to cancer. During his young adult years, he worked as a porter. He later worked for the New York City Transit Authority, laying rails at night. Later he deemed the entertainment industry was an escape from menial labor, although he could neither sing nor dance.
Mr. Bobbit’s first introduction to the realization of his dream was when he first saw Mr. James Brown, “The Godfather of Soul” perform at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY. He was awestruck and proclaimed to his wife that he would one day work as Brown’s Personal Manager. Although thwarted originally, by 1965, he won a job as James Brown's valet and later became Brown's friend and manager up to the day Brown died. The book, "Making it Happen," tells Brown and Bobbitt's story. It was Mr Bobbit who gave James Brown the title, “Godfather of Soul.” Bobbit was instrumental in the arrangement of “Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.” and the musical scores for the movie, “Black Caesar,” starring Fred Williamson. Bobbit met President Omar Bongo of Gabon and worked with Bongo's son cutting a few albums. The family hired Bobbit as their advisor taking Bobbit to heights that he couldn’t even imagine. He later worked with Michael Jackson becoming his friend and confidante.

It’s hard to overstate the impact that cardiovascular disease (CVD) has in the U.S.. Consider the following:
Cardiovascular disease affects 65 million Americans.
Close to one million Americans have a heart attack each year.
In the U.S., one person dies every 39 seconds of cardiovascular disease.
1 of 3 deaths that occurs in the U.S. is caused by cardiovascular disease.
1 in 3 Americans have metabolic syndrome, a cluster of major cardiovascular risk factors related to overweight/obesity and insulin resistance.
The total cost of cardiovascular disease in 2008 was estimated at $300 billion.
To put that last statistic in perspective, the World Health Organization has estimated that ending world hunger would cost approximately $195 billion. One might argue that the $300 billion we spend on treating cardiovascular disease in the U.S. is a necessary expenditure; however, a recent study which looked at the relationship between heart disease and lifestyle suggested that 90% of CVD is caused by modifiable diet and lifestyle factors. (1)
Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease is one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions in medicine. We’ve learned a tremendous amount about what causes heart disease over the past decade, but the medical establishment is still operating on outdated science from 40-50 years ago.

I want to hear what you have to say! So, Let's Talk About It!
A conspiracy theory is an explanatory proposition that accuses two or more persons, a group, or an organization of having caused or covered up, through secret planning and deliberate action, an illegal or harmful event or situation
Today's Topic: Is it possible to fix a problem that we don't understand why it exists? We can rally against violence, cry out, publish news stories, but unless we understand why it continues to happen, we're unable to understand how to effectively prevent it from happening. Do you ever wonder if it is a simple solution to stopping the violence in the black community; perhaps one that others know but refuse to help with? Today we're breaking open the research trying to figure out why the violence is increasing in the black community and we need your help! We aren't experts, but we believe that if we can find an effective reason, we can create an effective solution. Only then can we get national attention the right way! Join us 7pm CST
