Just for Christmas... NBC News correspondent and former Middle East Bureau Chief, Martin Fletcher, joins World Footprints to share his new book, Walking Israel. Fletcher’s book chronicles his adventures and insights as he walked along the coast of Israel meeting people and immersing himself in his surroundings. We will discuss some of the misperceptions that some have of Israel and why a visit to the historic country is worth considering.
Then, the art of human rights in the African Nation of Eritrea takes center stage as we introduce you to artist and activist Elsa Gebreyesus who is using her art to encourage hope, preserve history and fight political oppression across an ocean.

A detailed look into the plight of the African Diaspora here in America and throughout the world.
Upon obtaining his Master's Degree in Social Studies-Citizenship, Jones worked vigorously in the Philadelphia Public School system. As a professor, he also teaches courses in the area of Community Leadership and Humanities. An accomplished lecturer, writer and public speaker, Jones has become a beacon of hope within the community as he strives to continue his focus concerning the improvement of the socio-economic and political conditions of the African born Americans as well as descendants of the African Diaspora. He continues to work with at-risk youths helping them to develop and utilize critical thinking skills through his workshops and lectures. This show will explore the issues of our times as we continue to expose the obstacles in our way of cultural, political and socio-economical liberation from the clutches of systemic racism white supremacy. As Dr. Neely Fuller once stated, "If you do not understand white supremacy everything else you know will only serve to confuse you."
in Self Help
As a society, when we think of rape or sexual abuse we are likely to assume that the victims are female and the perpretrators are male. That is a gross misconception. There are many more female perpretrators and male victims than most of us are aware of.
Today's special guest Donald B. Jeffries, President/Executive Director and founder of Mariposa Men’s Wellness Institute, a nonprofit focused on the promotion of men's emotional wellness through education and training, is here to discuss the cultural blindness that exists concerning the prevalence of male sexual abuse and the profound negative effects this abuse has on male victims.
Researchers have found that 1 in 6 men (a modest estimate) have been sexually abused before the age of 18. And alarming statistics show that women can and do sexually abuse and assault adult men, though it rarely gets reported. The unfortunate truth is that because males simply aren’t allowed to be victims (or at least not allowed to be seen as such), they are are often more emotionally damaged than females by society’s refusal or reluctance to accept their victimization.
The goal of this show is to raise awareness of the prevalence of male sexual abuse, thereby raising the level of help, compassion, and healing that is available to these victims.
This will be a very powerful show. Be sure to save the date and tune in .
