    Author Connie Johnson Discusses The Lives of Women With HIV

    in Women

    Sex shouldn't be fatal, but for women living with HIV, unless they are given access to treatment, sex with an infected partner could very well be a death sentence. Author Connie Johnson, who spent some time in Kenya, got the opportunity to take a close look at the dynamics of sexually transmitted diseases, how society responds to those who have them, and whether guilt and shame prevent those who could be healed from seeking and receiving treatment.  African American women are the fastest growing population diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in the U.S., and the new cases that pop up on college campuses is alarming. We need a different kind of sexual revolution, above and beyond simply pushing condoms.  How do we address, treat, heal, and prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS, particularly among women who are reluctant to talk about it?  Connie Johnson shares her thoughts from her book "Beyond Measure."

    Unity 2020! The Third Great Synthesis: Connie B. Marlow and Andrew C. Bailey

    in Religion

    Andrew Cameron Bailey and Connie Baxter Marlow, visionary authors, filmmakers and futuristsare calling for UNITY 2020! The Third Great Synthesis. http://bit.ly/Unity2020SynthesisVR2


     An extraordinary exception to the human condition unfolded when the visionary leaders of two radically different cultures met and worked together to maintain an inter-cultural exchange that became the "First Great Synthesis” between Europeans and American Indians during the first fifty-four years at Plymouth Plantation. This melding gave birth to American democracy and to the American mind and spirit. The "Second Great Synthesis” occurred when aspects of The Great Law of the Iroquois were integrated into the United States Constitution in 1787. A third synthesis is possible as our cultures come together again to realize the great promise America made to the world in its freedom documents The Mayflower Compact, The Declaration of Independence and The U.S. Constitution.
