It was based upon data from couple of prominent consumer data-gathering organizations. Nielsen released a report on black consumption entitled Resilient, Receptive and Relevant in 2013. Those are the three key words we will look at on this show. Listen to comments from “People on the Street” regarding the consumer Report. It’s a new segment for our show.

The National African American Forum was formed to address the concerns of the New Jim Crow ” Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness
According to Michelle Alexander, New York Times Best Seller, and winner of the NAACP image award, states that the war on drugs during the Reagan Administration set into motion blatant discrimination within the caste system in the criminal justice system, education, economic development, housing, health, and the political process. According to Alexander individuals that was classified as a convicted felon after release could not receive public assistance in health, housing, and education, furthermore those individuals could not apply for loans to start a business, and did not have the right to vote.
A vast majority of those individuals were African Americans. Through new Jim Crow African Americans have been left behind in all institutions of life.
The National African American Forum is setting out to undo the wrongs of the New Jim Crow.

Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire.
This month, The Clarkie-Connection turns a long-awaited focus towards the state of the African-American family, specifically, with respect to education, incarceration, empowerment and several other potent issues. Of course, there will be significant time spent discussing violence against black youth, in particular, the Michael Brown story and all that has transpired in the weeks since he was shot and killed by a police officer in St. Louis. It seems like unarmed young, African-American men are being systematically gunned down by Caucasian police officers at an alarming rate - one study reveals that a black youth is killed every 28hrs!. Without allowing this disturbing trend to adversely inform the nation's perceptions of African-American youth, or the good police officers we rely on for peace and protection, it would appear that - at the very least - a sober conversation is warranted to dissect and discuss the issues within, behind, and surrounding this trend. Join the Clarkie-Connection and chime in with your thoughts and feelings on the issue which will eventually affect every African-American family, sooner or later, in either its prevention or cure! ....This is what great talk-radio is meant to be about!~
