Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 28th at 9 pm EST as we dissect, debate, and discuss the secret that Black folks don't talk about ... Depression in our community.
One in ten Americans will be affected by some form of Depression during their lifetime, usually caused by a major life event such as divorce, unemployment, poor health, or a death in the family. And depression is fast becoming a worldwide issue for the health industry.
How does this affect Black America specifically? Well, it has been noted by researchers that those living in poverty, us, are two and a half times more likely to experience depression. Additionally, 90% of Black males who suffer from this condition seek no treatment. On top of that women are more likely to experience depression than men, so consequently that means that Black women are suffering the most from this ailment.
“I’ve tried to commit suicide over 15 times. I have the scars on my arms of wanting to kill myself and not even know why,” said 45-year-old Tracey Hairston, a member of the health center who has bipolar disorder.
A report published by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that poverty, parenting, racial and gender discrimination put Black women — particularly low-income Black women — at greater risk for major depressive disorder (MDD).
Now that we know the problem, let's talk solutions brothers and sisters.

One would think that Black Women who are Lesbians would be the last to discrimate, especially since we suffer discrimination for just being Black, for being a Black Woman and for being a Black Woman who is also a Lesbian. Discrimination within the Black Lesbian community if VERY much real and causes gaps and wedges in what should be a solid Sisterhood.
Join us as the Cast of Les' Talk and Members of NeoSoul Sistas of KC discuss discrimination within the Black Lesbian Community and discuss the upcoming documentary done by Nneka Onuorah!

Toya Graham, the mother caught on video smacking around her 16-year-old son during the Baltimore uprising was hailed by many as "Mother of the Year." Activist Michaela Angela Davis writes, "It's a sad day when a traumatized, terrorized, desperate mother beating and cursing her child becomes 'mom of the year.'
Is Toya Graham, this mother of six, a hero...or is she an abuser? Was this an act of love...or abuse? Was this tough love, or something else? Do black single mothers have a license to beat and brutalize their sons to prevent them from becoming a statistic?
What about the mothers who yank, slap, punch their little black boys, do they deserve praise for "keeping their boys in line"?
Jackie Credle, a mother of two, says she was once the angry mother raising a son. She now regrets beating her son. Jackie shares her story, raw, uncut, honest real talk on She Struts Radio, Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 6:30pm ET as we continue our month-long conversation about mothering.

Wolfhours was conceived in the mind of Shontai Ralieck George a poet ,wordsmith, barz spitter master from Brooklyn New York. Though he now resides in the southern states he still has that gritty streetwise intelligence that makes him one of the most intriguing sought after figures within the poetic community.
The wolfhour concept basically presents a way for everyone to tell their story. Everyone no matter what background or lifestyle, profession or trade, religious or non-religious ..everybody has a story to tell. The guy on the corner begging for change to the lawyer in the courtroom pleading his/her case before a judge , they all have stories to tell. You might have been driving home from work when suddenly a car crosses three lanes just to get in an accident with you. By via of said incident you now have something to get off your chest. Well let it off!!!! We call this a vent. Venting is what the wolfhours movement prescribes if you got some stored up energy that needs to be released in the form of words. Written, spoken, even singing there is no one way to vent.
This blog talk radio show will give wordmiths nationwide a platform to showcase their skills in front of a virtual audience. Spoken word is the new hip hop. The body of the old hip hop is dying so it is up to us as word smiths to preserve this art form by embracing this movement through spoken word. So whether you are a bar spitter ..ballad writer, erotica, political, conscious or what have you. Its time to represent this art to the fullest. As and added bonus we will be featuring some of the hottest spoken word artist in the poetic community, given our callers the opportunity to call in, get in que to spit or ask the featured guest a question. Even if you just want to call in an enjoy the show either way the airwaves will be set a flame.
The Allah Team Radio Series presents:
"Introducing The Queens of the Allah Team"
And their special interview with Dr. Wesley Muhammad on his subject:
"The Black Woman Iz Goddess!"
When women are abused or allow themselves to be abused...it's because we don't know The Black Woman is a Goddess.
When women are disrespected or disrespect themselves ....it's because we don't know The Black Woman is a Goddess.
ALL of our problems stem from an improper view of ourselves as the Second Self of God. This trickles down to our communities, our families and our individual lives.
Join us tonight for this most essential discussion with Bro. Dr. Wesley Muhammad to deal with the religious and historic significance of the proper place of the Woman in relationship to God, Himself.
