Former Presidential candidate, BEN CARSON said, "Putting HARRIET TUBMAN on the $20 bill makes her the new face of slavery." Presidential candidate and GOP front runner, DONALD TRUMP, called the it a move 'political correctness' and suggested TUBMAN grace another denomination such as the $2 bill instead. For AFRICAN-AMERICANS is this a symbolic gesture that should be celebrated or is it a disgrace to TUBMAN's legacy. PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON'S image will remain on the back of the $20, DESPITE his horrific track record of attrocities against NATIVE AMERICANS should he be removed altogether? MD asking the questions America's afraid to ask? ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
Harriet Tramer has worked as both a journalist and a (college) instructor. And although the links between these two professions might not be immediately obvious Ms. Tramer has learned that they have much in common: They both demand highly-developed communication skills. People in these two lines of work must not only learn to express themselves well (either verbally or through written words). They must also become adept at listening.
In writing Rounding the Circle of Love: Growing Up As She Grows Old Ms. Tramer called into play everything she learned during her more than thirty years as a journalist/ teacher. Her experience guided her as she interviewed experts in various fields - the law, medicine, exercise therapy, enabling her to present technical information in an approachable manner.
Ms. Tramer graduated with an Bachelors degree from Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And she has Masters Degrees in Communication and Urban Studies from Cleveland State University. She has written for a variety of newspapers - "The Cleveland Press," "The Cleveland Plain Dealer," Crain's Cleveland Business - and has taught both at Cleveland State University and the New School (in New York City).
Whew! It's been an emotional week for most. A musical genius and icon has been called home. Yes... Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince is dead. He died at the young age of 57. America has made a step forward, or have we? Harriet Tubman is slated to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Some feel this is actually an insult and a step back. We welcome Dorrian Carraway to the show tonight to give his opinion and to CHop it up. What did you think of the knife wheeling grandma?!? Recent debate: do most women and most men see their mates as unappealing as the years go on and find themselves with a wandering eye. And On the political front: Trump gives a shout-out to Joe Paterno to see if he is doing okay, and Hillary and Bernie are going at it…

The nation is all abuzz about President Obama's decision to put a black face on a $20 bill - the legendary liberator of slaves, Harriet Tubman, known in her time as Moses, who freed hundreds of slaves and said she would have freed thousands more "If they had only known they were slaves." Of course a dollar bill is only a symbol, but what a powerful symbol it is to have an African American woman so honored to be placed on a symbol of currency that, up to this point in time, has been reserved exclusively for "dead Presidents." Will this new bill force more discussion about slavery and what extreme measures it took to finally abolish it? How will those in Confederate states respond to this decision? Is this one of those memorable actions that will characterize President Obama's legacy as the first African American U. S. President? How can we make this $20 bill a teaching tool to enable white and black children to understand the depth of degradation slavery represented and the tremendous sacrifice and courage it took for Harriet Tubman to resist not only enslavement of herself, but the many men women and children she helped escape to freedom? Can the placement of Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill be an emotionally healing act for African Americans? Historian and Linguist Hussain Abdul Quddus, who performs on stage in a portrayal of abolitionist Frederick Douglas, joins us to look at the impact of this new $20 bill.
