    Spartan Life Radio - Black History Month Highlights

    in Education

    On the last episode of Spartan Life Radio, we talked about the stupendous Black History Month (BMH) 2016 observance taking place at Norfolk State University. In this episode, we tracked down several faculty members who have created unique and interesting programming for this year's observance. Did you know that there's a connection between the famous Buffalo Soldiers of Virginia's history and the Philippines? We're going to talk to NSU's Dr. April T. Manalang, assistant professor in the Department of History and Interdisciplinary Studies, about her research into this "hidden" Virginia History and the program she's created for the Black History Month Celebration. Professor Anthony Stockard, director of the NSU Theatre Company, will discuss the encore performance of the award-winning play "The Brothers Size." The drama has won several awards and was recently presented at the Kennedy Center's American College Theatre Festival. "The Brothers Size" was also presented at last year's National Black Theatre Festival making it the most-awarded production in Norfolk State University history! And, last but certainly not least, Professor Carol Pretlow, NSU's resident political guru, who will round out our panel will discuss a BHM program involving students from the political science department. African American Perspectives on International Politics and Foreign Policy is a panel discussion on the topic from the student perspective.


    Join us for what promises to be a spirited conversation.

    State of the Young Black Man 2016

    in Motivation

    It's our second annual State of the Young Black Man address with Entrepreneur Marquis Coates and Young Activist Caleb Jackson.


    If your not a young man, this will be a most enlivening, informational, and engaging address for your little brother, nephew, and any parents of young men.


    How do we show them that school is not a right now job, but the foundation of your future? How do we keep them in school?


    Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks commit around half of homicides in the United States. Where do we start? Turning criminals into students and upstanding citizens sounds like an impossible charge.. but it's possible; we have to believe it is, but how? How is it possible?


    Also, how do we become better young black fathers, realistically and perceptionally?


    Entrepreneur Marquis Coates and Young Activist Caleb Jackson will be rejoining us for a compelling panel discussion!

    The Overall State of the NFL Going Into the Offseason

    in Sports

    Just like that, the 2015-16 NFL Season has vanished and football withdrawal has taken place all over America.  The Core Show panelists will attempt to keep you engaged as far as the NFL goes by telling you what the #1 storyline was out of the NFL this past season.  We'll look back on all things Super Bowl 50 and tell you our takeaways from the game, our favorite Super Bowl commercials, our impressions of the national anthem by Lady Gaga and the Pepsi Halftime Show featuring Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars, where the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers go from here to prepare for next season and much more.  


    Speaking of more, we'll examine Cam Newton and his poor, onfield perfomance, leading to his poorer postgame behavior and explain why calling him the face of the NFL proved to be a bit premature.  We'll examine the legcy of Peyton Manning and tell you if it's now complete now that he has won that oh so elusive 2nd Super Bowl.  We'll also tell you whether or not we expect him to retire.  We'll react to the latest fallout surrounding Johnny Manziel and even tell you a known figure in the NFL who ultimately had the worst day once the Panthers officially lost Super Bowl 50.  


    We'll also have an insider who covers the Oakland Raiders to address the rumors around the possibility they could relocate to Las Vegas and occupy a 1 billion dollar stadium that is going to be built on the campus of UNL V.  


    We'll examine the state of the NFL and mention what we believe the NFL needs to address this offseason.

    Justice Department Sues Ferguson

    in Politics

    The Department of Justice filed a 56-page lawsuit against the city of Ferguson on Wednesday afternoon, citing "a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States."


    “The residents of Ferguson have waited nearly a year for their city to adopt an agreement that would protect their rights and keep them safe," Lynch said in a prepared statement. "They have waited nearly a year for their police department to accept rules that would ensure their constitutional rights and that thousands of other police departments follow every day.  They have waited nearly a year for their municipal courts to commit to basic, reasonable rules and standards.  But residents of Ferguson have suffered the deprivation of their constitutional rights – the rights guaranteed to all Americans – for decades.  They have waited decades for justice.  They should not be forced to wait any longer.”Attorney General Loretta Lynch ST Louis Post Dispatch
