    Jamel Robinson, founder of the Jamel Robinson Child Welfare Reform Initiative

    in Education

    Tonight on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com, Meet Jamel Robinson!  After spending 21 years in the foster care system without being adopted, he beat the odds and is now a successful child welfare reform advocate.


    This show is dedicated to  Amanda Berry Smith 1837-1915
     devoted her life to the ministry of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. Her most noted achievement is the opening of the first orphanage for black children in Illinois.
     In 1899, the orphanage opened its doors to homeless African American girls. The 12-room brick house that served as the orphanage was the first of its kind in Illinois.
    The community at large was receptive to Smith’s evangelical message and supported the presence of the orphanage. By 1910, the building housed 33 children, up from 12 in 1900
    In Harvey, Illinois, a suburb founded by temperance groups south of Chicago, Smith took up the duties of the national representative for the WCTU, and wrote her life’s story. An Autobiography: The Story of the Lord’s Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith, the Colored Evangelist was published in 1893. Through book sales, donations, and lecturing fees, she began to raise money for a new cause: an orphanage for black children. She founded and distributed a small newspaper, The Helper, in order to generate publicity and income for the orphanage and other worthy charities

In 2009, she was honored by the Legal Aid Society of California with the “Outstanding Family Attorney of the Year” award.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1194

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 9 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 9) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 9: "Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others." Step 9 reminds you once again that you cannot overcome personal difficulty alone. You pray for the willingness to be willing. If you have people on your list where there has been mutual harm being done you may have difficulty with this step. There may some who you do not feel it necessary to make amends. It is advisable, again after consulting with a trusted advisor, that you start making amends to those folks on your “Right Now” list, then your second list and then your third list. And finally, you will re-visit your last list, the “Never!” column. Becoming willing allows you to prepare yourself for this work through prayer by using of any tools that support your efforts to overcome personal roadblocks. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 10 & TRADITION 10. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Among other shit this week a dude killed his girl when he saw child support had taken his entire pay check. A woman hid her pregancy from her boyfriend and when the baby came she threw it out the window to it's death. A woman snap chatted a pic of her and herself and her boy friend as he was holding a gun to her head. Later they found her body with a bullet hole in the head. It's reported she bought the bullets for the gun. On top of that I'm sure segment we so affectionately refere to as "Gut Level  Drama" is sure to be messy. See y'all Sunday night 8pm
