    Breaking the Chains.....Is Education or Indoctrination happening in Schools?

    in Motivation

    I have a dream...Celebrating Our Jubilee!


    Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality.


    So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? What are we fostering in the minds of our Black children? How will we strengthen our families and our communities? How will we show the power of LOVE in the world? How are we Leading Change?


    Just over fifty years ago, Dr. King's "I Have a Dream..." Speech debuted in Detroit and transformed a nation. Today, we, the residents of Detroit, are uniting to become a beacon of light and love to usher in greater transformation within our capacity to love that will impact this city, nation and the world. As Detroit goes, so does the nation.


    Grass roots organizations and communities in Detroit are raising the bar on what's possible for us as Humans by elevating our consciousness to envision our lives as spirits in human form co-creating a world that reflects love, unity, compassion and Power. Find their destiny so you can powerfully play a role in Detroit's Re-birth that causes the world to notice!


    Today, we are turning our discussion to our education system as school is resuming next week in our city. We want to encourage dialogue on what are the expectations for our children during their educational journey and how it translates to them becoming a part of society. What role is expected of them that is reflecting in the education they receive? Is it inclusive of the children's culture and societal experiences or is it a mirage of the life they have no hope of achieving? It's time to have this conversation.


    Remember, we are powerful, and together we rise!

  • Nightingale Children's Home, Barbados - A place where kids are molested

    in Radio

    Today our show will delve into the safety of children in government foster care facilities (Nightingale Children's Home, for example) and the purpose of the Child Care Board, as it is strongly alleged (because no one in Barbados goes to jail for these crimes) that members of the Board and some of Barbados's elite use children in these homes for sexual gratification.  Also, Rawle Maycock, our political correspondent, will talk politics, early elections and crime in Barbados

  • A Kind Voice on Music Featuring George Schricker

    in Lifestyle

    This Wednesday on A Kind Voice on Music we talk with singer/songwriter and storyteller George Schricker about a career spanning decades - both for himself and for his audiences. George has presented his storytelling method in 48 different artist residencies, and spent twenty years performing for children in schools accross the country. His efforts culminated in a children's album, George's Brother, whose song "Archaeopteryx" was even nominated for Children's Song of the Year.


    George has since returned to writing and playing for primarily adult audiences, with album releases in 2010 (Back on Track) and 2012. "Losing Track of Time", one of the songs on Back on Track, received notable mention in The New York Times and significant airplay in our fair state of Indiana. In tonight's episode we listen to several tracks from his latest album, Precious Time, and talk about George's band, event center, and love of songwriting.
