There is a major question in the black community about whether or not physical punishment is a viable option for disciplining children. The practice has been around since slavery and is so ingrained into black parents, that it isn't viewed as something that is problematic but rather a necessary component to parenting. In her Book Beating Black Kids, author Asadah Kirkland, discusses why black parents have got to change their thinking about this tradition and gives effective alternatives for parents who may be uninformed about how to be effective at parenting in a way that doesn't involve corporal punishment. Asadah Kirkland is the featured guest on the show. Please call in and share your views. WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING THE LATEST IN THE NYPD BROOKLYN POLICE SHOOTING. CALL IN 347-215-8933

TaharQa Aleem is our special guest on the Jimi Hendrix Black Legacy Series. He will be talking about his new book called : Ghetto Fighters in Harlem World. It was co-authored with his twin brother Tunde Ra Aleem, who made his transition in late summer of 2014. TaharQa continues to carry on the Aleem legacy as he promotes a memoir that the Aleems collectively have pour so much heart, soul and emotion into. This book takes its readers on a whirlwind of a journey through the concrete jungles of the Harlem underworld, as well as a few surprise stops here and there. Although this first interview will mainly focus on the Ghetto Fighters' interactions with Jimi Hendrix, the book offers so much more, as the Aleems made their way through house, hip-hop, and even some New Kids on the Block!!! You don't want to miss this first interview as we go deep into their friendship and mentorship with Jimi Hendrix.
