    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- Great Black Inventors & Inventions

    in Culture

    Black Inventors, Inventions & Innovations 


    We were taught that George Washington Carver invented peanut butter, that's probably not true considering the fact that the Aztecs were eating it back in the 15th century. But did you know that brother Carver invented 300 or so uses for the peanut itself? He issued bulletins to farmers and housewives explaining how to use peanuts to make soap, face creams, axle grease, insecticides, glue, medicines and charcoal. He even made paper from peanuts.


    Join us, Alex, Asha, and Zhe, Thursday August 27 at 9 PM EST as we discuss great Melanated Inventors, Inventions and Innovations that have impacted and improved our world. 


    Spoken language, the written word, and the smooth transmission of electricity are all inventions or innovations of the Melanated man. Traffic lights, the gas mask, the modern pacemaker, and even the video game are innovations of the Black man. And this is the short list. So you don't want to miss this informative episode.


    Plus, brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another episode of Healthy Matters, improving the health of the Melanated Family one week at a time.

    And as always keep it real and keep it on point.

  • "State Of The Black Family-Pt. 2-Why Do Black Women Mistrust Love?"

    in Lifestyle

    SPONSORED BY RESUMES 4 CHRIST


    Continuing our discussion on the state of the Black family...Women's roles in relationships and a household are major. They are the bearers of life, the nurturers, the soft balance in a hard situation, and in essence...the first link to love for all of the people in their lives. When a woman is not at her best, balance is thrown off, because of the many hats she wears, love is always at the base. In today's society, women are harder, "independent", misfocused, and on another path. Parental love and intimate love are addressed as companionship and hook-ups, as women's resourcefulness and perserverance abilities have been beaten down by the many beasts of the modern world. Why do you think Black women have a problem trusting love? Join in tonight by calling 347-32-9967 at 10:30 pm EST.

    Black American Woman Entrepreneur- Cassandra Bell-Gash

    in Professional

     


    Black Americans have struggled to make a way out of no way for centuries. Faced with rampant racism and discrimination, industrious Black Americans  do for self, launching their own businesses. The number of businesses owned by Black American women grew 322% since 1997, making black females the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. Women now own 30% of all businesses in the U.S., accounting for some 9.4 million firms. And Black American women control 14% of these companies, or an estimated 1.3 million businesses. The growth in women-owned firms may be due to the lack of fair pay, fair promotion, and family-friendly policies found in corporate America. Women of color are impacted more significantly by all of the negative factors that women face.


    The highest concentrations of black woman-owned businesses are in Georgia, Maryland, and Illinois, but Black American women are launching companies in growing numbers across the country. Cassandra Bell-Gash launched a Medicaid waiver care in North Carolina in 2003 and grew the business into a million-dollar venture only to get sabotaged by bureaucratic mumbo-gumbo that delayed payments and interfered with client services forcing her to close in 2008. No untoward findings were made, but the interference caused Ms. Bell-Gash to close her business and regroup. Bell-Gash is unusual among entrepreneurs of any race or gender in that she employed more than just herself. Black American Women have an incredibly steep incline trying to do two things: one is just to be successful, and the other is to create wealth. Cassandra Bell-Gash relaunched her company, Life Provisions,Inc. (LPI) this Spring 2015 saying she was "delayed, but not detered".

    Proper Leadership in the Afrocentric/Conscious Community | Imhotep Fatiu

    in Business

    Imhotep Asis Fatiu, affectionately known as Baba Asis to many within Baltimore City, was born Antoin Torain on March 20 1971 to Marie and Connie Torain; the fifth of six children. During his youth, he grew up in the challenging Park Heights Neighborhood on Shirley Avenue where he was introduced to aggression, criminality, and all facets of street survival as early as age six. Contention within the socio-economic repressed neighborhood of Park Heights would engulf him causing young Antoin to engage in a series of acts which kept him in and out of juvenile courts and detention centers and would eventually lead him to being sentenced for 20 years in prison; of which he served 13 years and 9 months, being released in November of 2004. In Imhotep’s words, “I did not have the knowledge, skills or moral and structural support to succeed.”


    From his 20 years of incessantly studying African history and culture, politics, psychology, sociology, and world history; Imhotep Fatiu emerged. Imhotep has spent years making amends to his community and ancestors for any wrongs done through his dedicated, unwavering and consistent efforts to teach, organize, empower, and heal the spirits and minds of Black people.  His extensive experiences assessing the urban psyche, community organizing, experiencing the worst of European aggression, and using critical thought inspired Imhotep to develop a system of concepts and behavioral code entitled: UrBan Philosoph
