Rae Luskin Chats About "Creative Activist Conversations" That Matter with SPEAK! #intothePODlight host Tracey Bond, PhJrn-Publicist
"I am so happy and delighted one of the people featured in my book, Sue Ellen Allen found her passion and her purpose in an Arizona women's prison and now she was sitting in Michelle Obama's box at the State of the union. Everyone has a story, it is up to us to ask and listen." -Rae Luskin
Chicagoland Celebrity Author Rae Luskin Hosts Creative Activists Conversations Event Feb. 11th, 2016
"We as a country can change our collective thinking when we have new conversations. It is the creatives who are opening doors through their "art". We can question our definition of able by a dance performed by a dis-abled person. We can talk about prison reform when an ex con is sitting with Michele Obama at the State of the union.

Sacred steel is a musical style and African-American gospel tradition that developed in a group of related Pentecostal churches in the 1930s. The Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of the Truth, was founded in 1903 by Mary Magdalena Lewis Tate. Following her death in 1930, the church divided into three branches, known as the Keith, Jewell and Lewis dominions. The steel guitar was embraced in the worship of two of these dominions, the Keith Dominion (officially, The House of God Which Is the Church of the Living God the Pillar and Ground of the Truth Without Controversy), headquartered in Nashville and the Jewell Dominion (Church of the Living God,
Sacred Steel was something I heard but had no ideal what it was or where it originated from
No matter where you fall on the spectrum, all of us need to strongly consider and dialogue about how we will do ministry in a world that will no longer define marriage and sexuality by traditional terms.
The overall objective of this conversation is NOT to force a change in people's opinions or theologies; the main purpose is to begin the much-needed dialogue on the realities of doing ministry with the LGBT community in mind. Whether you affirm or deny homosexuality theologically, we can all agree all people are worthy of experiencing God's love; and we must admit that the church has traditionally been a very hostile and hypocritical place for LGBT individuals. How do we do ministry today in a way that upholds our biblical convictions (as diverse as they may be), and still demonstrate love to a community (as diverse as it may be)?

SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT
"Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."
A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."

If you didnt watch the Super Bowl yesterday man did you miss out! Not only was there a great game and commericals but the halftime was epic! Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and ColdPlay killed the halftime performance. Cam Newton post game response on the other hand wasn't quite what we thought... In other non-super bowl news Kayne announced he has a secret album title, Beyonce released her new video, Rihanna is set to perform at the Grammy's, and there's maybe proof that P. Diddy had Tupac killed. Tune in as we will put you in the mix!
