The Brewers..."A Black Family Searches for Its Roots" with Beatryce Nivens
Learn why would whites in a small Southern town put a black woman's obituary in the family scrapbook? Why would one of the cousin's treasure it so long? Who is Emiline Watts? What is the connection with the Watts family?
Beatryce Nivens author, family historian, motivational speaker, nationally recognized business/ career expert and executive coach will discuss her newest book - Children Go Where I Send Thee. Her other books include: the highly acclaimed Success Strategies for African Americans (Plume); the pioneering The Black Woman’s Career Guide (Doubleday); Careers for Women Without College Degrees (McGraw-Hill) and more.
Beatryce Nivens (A View From The Top: The Inspiring Success Stories of 15 Black CEOs, Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs) and actress Kym Whitley (“Raising Whitley,” a Tyler Perry production on the OWN Network) were recently pleasantly surprised when they learned about the untold history that was hidden in plain sight. In a surprising way, their ‘roots’ unraveled to bring into focus the multiracial heritage of their historically bound families – the Brewers (African Americans) and the Watts (white) families. Today, the families now unite to honor a woman ‘Emiline’ who represented a family bond that began during slavery and now survives in the lives of descendants–black and white.

As part of the Keeping Love Alive show and in honor of our anniversary, my husband, Nivens Thompson, called to share his thoughts.
If you caught the Betty White interview on David Letterman recently you probably got a chuckle at her comedic version of "The Top 10 Betty White Tips for Living a Long and Happy Life". In this episode Bobbie takes a look at Betty's humorous advice and puts it into context for everyday practical use from her perspective as an integrative medicine practitioner of the popular Immune Recovery & Wellness Clinic in Tucson, Arizona.
No question we all could certainly take a page from Betty White, who at 89 is a multi Emmy Award winning actress, best known for her roles on the long running television shows Mary Tyler Moore as Sue Ann Nivens, and The Golden Girls as Rose Nylund. Still going strong with appearances in major A List movies like The Proposal, top television shows like Saturday Night Live, and the publication of her newest 2011 best selling book "If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won't)" Betty's endearing, ageless zest for life gives new expression and meaning to the word "anti aging" - and Bobbie will give us an inside look at how it's done.
From Native Trailblazers ShowThe incarceration rate of Native Americans is 38% higher than the national rate. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights attributes this higher rate to differential treatment by the criminal justice system, lack of access to adequate counsel and racial profiling. -- The person that knows this firsthand is Reesy Floyd-Thompson, Director of Prisoners' Wives, Girlfriends, & Partners(PWGP)- Thompson's husband Nivens is a Cherokee man that is currently incarcerated. -- According to Thompson, The mission of PWGP is to address the needs of those with an incarcerated partner, serve as a resource for families, provide opportunities for advocacy and collaborate with the community to enhance public
