Thomas Weatherspoon is an athlete, businessman, poet, writer, spiritual mentor and professional trainer who has spent more than twenty years shaping the futures of world-class athletes by challenging them to reach beyond their pre-conceived potential.
Born in Chicago, Weatherspoon grew up in a family strong spiritually, academically and athletically. Mother Berta, a baptist minister, instilled an unwavering faith in God, while father Willie, ex-military, demanded a strong work ethic. The combination proved golden for this talented midwest family. Weatherspoon’s sister Sandy, the youngest and only girl, graduated from Marquette University at the top of her class with degrees in finance and Spanish. Younger brother Kenny holds American and Olympic records in the triple jump, and won the gold in 1996 in Atlanta. Older brother Darryl was All-American wide out and attended West Virginia University on a football scholarship; he turned down the NFL to pursue a degree at Marquette, and now teaches high school English. Thomas was a four-sport a year athlete in high school all three years. He attended Wisconsin to study psychology and communications, participating in basketball and track and field. By his senior year, Weatherspoon was a six-time All-American and double National Champion in the long and triple jumps. After college he pursued his Olympic dreams with Athletes in Action, a Christian-based track club, but after competing at the national and international level for a few years, his focused changed to coaching and training athletes.

Pam Africa is the head of International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the Philadelphia-based organization at the center of the international movement seeking Abu-Jamal’s release. She and Ramona Africa are also members and survivors of the MOVE Maafa.
Africa is the dynamo whom most Philadelphia police, prosecutors, politicians and many pastors love to hate because of her strident advocacy on behalf of imprisoned journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal and MOVE members sentenced for a fatal 1978 shootout.
While winning freedom for Abu-Jamal and the MOVE Nine is a definitive focus of Pam Africa’s advocacy, she is frequently found on “front lines” nationwide fighting for ending mistreatment of people regardless of their color and creed.
“Pam Africa is in each and every struggle for social justice in Philadelphia, the U.S. and abroad. It’s not just Mumia,” said activist/writer Berta Joubert-Ceci while chairing a program in West Philadelphia a few weeks ago.
During that West Philly program Africa received praise from another warrior for right, former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney, whose praise also highlighted Africa’s often overlooked soft side.
McKinney proudly displayed a stylish African-themed jacket Africa had given her as a present that evening, a garment McKinney had complimented Africa for wearing at an event in Atlanta that McKinney attended.
I am deeply honored that she has consented to be a guest on my show. Mama will give her views on public education and much more I am sure. Don't miss out. Call in and check in!!
