    Double Conciousness and the Black Lives Matter Movement

    in Christianity

    In his 1903 book "The Souls of Black Folk", W.E.B. Dubois introduced the concept of double conciousness. It's the idea that blacks find it difficult to find identity in a majority white world. This refrain is revisited in the Black Lives Matter movement today. This is even more apparent in black churches where theologies are conflicting with praxis on contemporary issues. How can the black clergy and leadership address this double conciousness while empowering believers to be "one body with many members?" Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of the day.

    Euphoric Music Tributes: Battle of Two Bands: Led Zeppelin Against Black Sabbath

    in Rock Music

    A Must Vote Tribute


    (Kewl Khat Willy T. promotes) Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardistJohn Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music.


    (Italian American promotes) Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward. The band have since experienced multiple line-up changes, with guitarist Iommi being the only constant presence in the band through the years. Despite an association with these two themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social instability, political corruption, the dangers of drug abuse and apocalyptic prophecies of the horrors of war.

    Shocking Story: Learn how an African man was used as a human zoo spectacle

    in Education

    Call in to learn how Black Lives have been "caged" for entertainment since the turn of the century.  Bars by any name...are a prison...and a cage. Join host Dr. Sonia Banks, Chair, Manhattan Chapter, NCBW for our Leadersatplay Education Series. Meet an award-winning journalist, Pamela Newkirk, as she reveals a little-known and shameful episode in American history, when an African man was used as a human zoo exhibit—a shocking story of racial prejudice, science, and tragedy in the early years of the twentieth century in the tradition of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Devil in the White City, and Medical Apartheid.  In 1904, Ota Benga, a young Congolese “pygmy”—a person of petite stature—arrived from central Africa and was featured in an anthropology exhibit at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Two years later, the New York Zoological Gardens displayed him in its Monkey House, caging the slight 103-pound, 4-foot 11-inch tall man with an orangutan.

    LIFE AND DEATH: THE POWER OF THE TONGUE

    in Religion

    ARE YOUR WORDS CANCELING EACH OTHER OUT? Let me explain Proverbs 18:21 "The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences." So there are consequences to the words you speak, some of us think if we just make positive confessions (speaking life) about ourselves and "We Good" BUT some of us don't understand that when you engage in talking negatively about other people (speaking death), your actually bringing that death, that toxicity, that negativity back on your self, in effect canceling out your positive confessions about your self. Proverbs 26:27 "He who digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone, it will come back on him." <----- You thought you was digging a pit for the person you talking about, but you just set yourself up to fall. Speaking LIFE is a lifestyle it is not a part-time occupation. Folks love to attempt to burn other people's house down by bad mouthing them but expect God to bless their house, it don't work like that. Even when we engage in talking about some of these tragic situations we see in the news we must be careful not to allow that energy to get all up in our own lives. You will be what you "engage, entertain or eat, consume". Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, what are you consuming? If it is nothing but gossip and junk what you think your situation going to look like? How is God going to bless you with the desires you really want when you aura is one of death and toxicity because you can't stop talking about people (speaking death)? In this show we will deal with THE POWER OF THE TONGUE

    Kingdom Quest

    in Christianity

    I'm going to take a few moments today and just share how this book got started and why it is so important to me that you share in this revelation of the gospel message of the kingdom of God. Religion, tradition and false teaching had me bound and I could not seem to get free. My life as a Christian was drying up and I was dying on the vine. In anguish, I cried out to God to show me what I was doing wrong because I knew he couldn't be the problem. It had to be something wrong with me... or so I thought. Then he came to me and whispered...seek ye first the kingdom of God. What happened next may offend some and surprise many. Tune in to find out what happened.
