    Today's Show features three separate segments pertaining to life in a 21th Century Family. First, Chef Bruce Friedman shares about Launching Adolescents into Adulthood.


    Then, Duane Breijak offers a show on Tackling Homelessness through Non-Profit Development: Interview with Angel Foster. With cold temperatures blanketing much of the United States and over 600,000 individuals facing homelessness, the pressure turns to finding solutions to this major issue impacting almost every community across the country. On this edition of Thirty Below I sit down with Angel Foster, founding member and current Board member of the Isabella County Restoration House. ICRH provides immediate, temporary housing to homeless individuals of all social and cultural identities in Isabella County and advocates for access to services needed by patrons to address their individual needs.  Angel and I discuss the formation of the ICRH, common misconception about the homeless population, and how other advocates can start similar organizations in their community.


    Finally, Co-Host Terry Keller provides a live segment of "A Father's Perspective."  During the last twenty minutes of the show, you can call in live with your questions and comments. To do so, call 347-327-9168.

    The End of The African American?

    in Politics

    THE END OF THE AFRICAN AMERICAN?


    For most of our existence in America, the nation has needed us—for free labor, for cheap labor, for scapegoating and for the raping of our culture.


    But America has co-opted Black Culture to the point where it is currently packaging what it deems to be Black Culture and selling it back to us. It has other cultures to use for cheap labor and, of course, we are still scapegoats.


    There is no reason for us to exist.


    We have been so diminished that we don't want to live around us and many of us think the worst of us.


    With no real need for us to exist, it is quite possible that the African American will diminish into irrelevance.


    Listen to The Bridge Radio tomorrow at 4pm Pacific as we discuss the future of African Americans. Join Award-Winning Author Darryl James and co-hosts Tracy Powell, Dr. John Hamilton, Marcus D. LeGall III and DJ Gates on one of the most intellectually stimulating shows on radio.


    Tune in each Sunday at 4PM Pacific Time for "The Bridge," a smarter radio show.
