    Black Women's Lives Matter too

    in Politics

    In the outrage over the lack of justice for Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Eric Garner and the several others who died at the hands of law enforcement, there was an erasure of the black women, girls and queer folks who had met the same fate within some of the protests. Yet the Silence of Black women being brutalized is disturbing....This Episode we'll take a look at the How black women became an after thought in the movement they created.

    The Joshua Generation Network: The American Black Women on African Nations

    in Culture

    What should be our stance and response as Black women on the state of affairs in African nations?


    The mainstream media makes every attempt to make it appear that Africa is filled with nothing but wild violent uneducated monkeys running through the wild and the jungles of the continent, but the truth is that there are plenty of African nations that are more well off economically than many Black communities in America, even with its more indigenous and poverty-stricken cultures.


    What should be the Blackwoman's stance in America as to the continent of Africa and to any particular African nation?


    Instead of using the words "Black Unity," let's phrase it a different way: "Are we ever going to start singing our different parts and playing our different instruments in the same choir, or start singing all of our different parts in the choir to the tune of the same song at the same time?"

    African American Women Issues

    in Politics

    America has a natural resource that continues to be exploited, abused, trafficed, criminalized, babies snatched from her and robbed of dignity.  This is the descendant slave woman of America the beautiful.
    The Black woman is on the way back to servitude either through legal prescription drugs ie mental health services being pushed on her or child protection practices and policies that force her into servitude to visit her children or get them back.  
    There must be greater opportunity for the woman in the workplace to experience support to reach the full potential and make the intelligent contributions.

    Speak Life Radio ~ Remembering African American History

    in Motivation

    Speak Life Radio ~ Remembering African American History!


     Blessings family and welcome back to another amazing show. When most people think about African American History, the first thing that comes to mind is slavery right? Well our History is much richer and goes deeper than that, we were and still are a Great people with great minds and a fascinating culture. Unfortunately not much of our history is taught in school but that shouldn't stop us from learing it and teaching it to our youth! God says, "My People Perish For Lack Of Knowledge" and that's exactly whats happening to our people because we have no idea how great we are nor do we realize all that we have contributed to society.


     Here are some Important and Famous African Americans you may or may not know: Benjamin Banneker ~1731-1806 Astronomer, clockmaker, publisher. Phillis Wheatly ~ 1753-1784 Poet, one of the first African American poets whose works were published. Frederick Douglass ~ 1818-1895 Abolitionist, editor, orator, author,statesman, reformer. Harriet Tubman ~ 1820-1913 writer, abolitionist, as an ablitionist, she acted as intelligance gather, refugee organizer, raid leader, nurse, revival speaker, and fund raiser. This is just a few but I pray this will give you a taste to study more!!!!


     We are very pleased to have as guest tonight Mr. Donald L Dowridge jr ~ Historian, Motivational Guru, Founder of DLD (Determined to Learn and Develop) Enterprises and Founder of the DLD Black History Museum. Please join us plus invite others.
