    Carl Siciliano of The Ali Forney Center

    in LGBT

    Carl Siciliano, founder and executive director of The Ali Forney Center, talks to Randy about the current #HarlemNoHate Campaign which aims to raise funds to help the Center purchase a church in Harlem to expand it's services for homeless LGBT youth.


    The poetic irony is that the pastor of the church, Rev. James Manning, has spent years spewing vitriolic hate speech towards the LGBT community in Harlem.


    Pastor Manning is notorious for signage at the church with messages such as “Jesus would stone homos” and that all supporters of LGBT people should be cursed with cancer, HIV, madness, and eternal damnation.


    "The biggest reason our youths are driven from their homes is because of homophobic and transphobic religious beliefs of their parents. If we are able to obtain the space it would truly be a triumph of love over hatred," says Siciliano.


    The church is being put up for auction due to unpaid bills and tax liens on February 24th. The goal of the #HarlemNoHate campaign is to purchase the church and make what was once a place that put religious-based hate on broad display, and turn it into a safe haven for young LGBT.


    The Ali Forney Center is the largest and most comprehensive organization in the nation dedicated to housing LGBT youth. AFC serves youth aged 16-24, and provides emergency and transitional housing, street outreach, a drop-in center, medical and mental health treatment, a vocational/educational program, and a counseling project for the families of LGBT youth.


    Listen as we talk about the difficulties homeless LGBT youth face and how you can help.

    Chuck Cooper, Jr. Will Discuss His Legendary Father And His Foundation

    in Sports

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Coach Karen Hall will interview Chuck Cooper, Jr. Will Discuss His Legendary Father And His Foundation.


    About the Foundation


    The Chuck Cooper Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit dedicated to honoring the legacy of Chuck Cooper by helping further the education of our young people. The mission of The Chuck Cooper Foundation is to continue the legacy of Charles “Chuck” Cooper, the first African-American drafted into the National Basketball Association, by awarding graduate-level scholarships and by providing comprehensive leadership development, professional skills, and opportunities to underserved students.


    As he approached his graduation from Duquesne in 1950 with a bachelor’s degree in education, Cooper signed on with the famed touring all-black Harlem Globetrotters team. On April 25, 1950, Cooper was selected in the second round of the NBA draft by Boston Celtics owner Walter Brown. When an associate pointed out that Cooper was black, Brown answered that he didn’t care whether Cooper was “striped, plaid, or polka dot.”


    The 6-foot, 5-inch, 200-lb. Cooper made his debut with the Celtics on November 1, 1950, and he went on to produce a strong rookie season. He played in 66 games, averaging 9.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game and sparking a renaissance in the Celtics’ drooping fortunes. Cooper formed bonds with his teammates, including future Celtics great Bob Cousy, with whom he would sometimes go out in the evening to listen to jazz concerts. During his basketball career, in addition to playing with the Celtics, Cooper also played with the Milwaukee Hawks and the Fort Wayne (Indiana) Pistons. While with the Pistons, he played in the 1956 NBA Championship.

    Schomburg Pt.2! Blerds & Bleeks Speak AGAIN! & Tuskegee Heirs, Sat@6pm!

    in Pop Culture

    Well, while you hunker down for what we're told is going to be a helluva of winter storm, why not listen to a new episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse, airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. Due to what turned out to be one of our best comic con experiences, the crew (Dburt, Capt. Kirk and Dburt) decided to take a shot at recreating the Blerds and Bleeks Speak segment of the 4th Annual Black Comic Book Festival held at the Schomburg Center (Harlem, NY) during MLK Day!  So hold on to your hats, when we welcome Ashlee Blackwell (Grvyrd Shift Sisters), Karama Horne (The Blerd Gurl), Maurice Waters (Black Sci-Fi) and Joseph Illidge (Verge Entertainment, The Mission) for a gabfest with topics ranging from comic cons (minority themed and otherwise), the promotion/business of Blerd culture and expectations for geekery circa 2016.  And if that wasn't enough, Messrs. Marcus Williams and Greg Burnham, the creative team behind The Tuskegee Heirs, stop by to discuss this great graphic novel project and the (ongoing) successful Kickstarter campaign that is making this comic series a reality. Call in live at 646-915-9620.


    I don't believe it-even here-forty thousand kilometers from earth....the first thing I see is a giant alien white man with an attitude-Dr. Adam Brashear/Blue Marvel
