SORT BY Relevancy
This week, Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson honors the 50 anniversary of the March on Washington. This day conjures nostalgic images of unity, triumph, and hope against a backdrop of violence and national tragedy. Today, as we pause to celebrate the distance we have traveled, we honor those who marched so we could live in a better nation. But we also take this time to reflect on the road ahead. Our guests will assess the state of contemporary race relations while considering a number of timely questions: How is growing up in America today different than 50 years ago? Do we truly live in a "post-racial society" or is such a construct irresponsible given the evolving and more subtle racial realities they obscure? And, most importantly, what collective steps remain for us to turn Dr. King’s rhetorical dream into a reality? It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.

In keeping with the ‘We Resisters’ platform and purpose, our guest is Isa Hodge.
Isa Hodge was the Executive Director American Muslim Political Action Committee, an Organization he has since disassociated himself from due to differences in opinion.
After a brief hiatus from Political Activism, and to get his Family Medical Clinic established. He is now prepared to come and discuss what transpired with the planned march and share with us his views on being ‘Patriotic Muslim.’ Or is that an oxymoron? Can a Muslim be ‘Patriotic’? Or is that an oxymoron?
Was it an ‘In your face’ by radicals, a publicity stunt, a show of Muslim defiance?
Why on 9/11?
Who was behind it?
Who funded it?
Was it intended as an insult to Christians, America and the victims?

50 years ago today. Americans gathered in our nation's capital to speak as one voice, requesting peace, jobs and justice.
The problems facing Blacks in America had played itself out on streets across America, and finally in one peacefully orchestrated demonstration people headed to Washington DC by the thousands.
The message they carried was
freedom for all,
justice for all
Jobs for all.
By 1963, parts of America had been through turmoil for years, and things were not getting better then, but worse.
Blacks and Whites come together in peace to make their voices heard to people who were holding political seats of power in Washington DC. People were tired of fighting and people had decided giving up was not an option.
The movie we saw was Lee Daniel's The Butler. I can't express to you enough how important this film is to the restoration of the Black community. This film lays out our experience as citizen of the United State of America with such grace and dignity that I weeped at the sight of our beauty. I saw myself and the wisdom and love that my momma, my daddy, my aunt Martha, Grandma Lena, grandma Era, uncle Ralph, grandpa George, aunt Virginia and uncle Sammy has shown me through the year. This film took my indignant entitlement and loving reminded me that it is the shoulders of my humble servant ancestor that I am standing upon. It is because they served with pride and grace that I am here. If you ever love an elder in your family I ask that you please take yourself and every young person you can afford to take to go see The Butler!!!
Come join us on Aug 24, 2013 at 9:00 AM at the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Statue and pavilion as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on the corner of MLK & Carey, North Las Vegas.
It is amazing that it has been 50 years since the historic march on our nation’s capitol by Mostly African Americans, whites and others seeking job opportunities and civil rights that all free people in America were promised by the constitution of the United States. In Dr. King’s speech he spoke of this as a check that had been stamped, “insufficient funds.” He said, “In a sense we have come to the nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the constitution and Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise to all men [that they] would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Sports talk and discussion with an attitude for the passionate and hard core fan. Today we will have Jon Fox, our Washington Redskins correspondent, in to talk about the Redskins as they head into the opening weekend of the NFL regular season. How ill RG III adapt to the new system of head coach Jay Gruden and will the Washington offense get back to its 2012 productivity levels with the addition of WR Desean Jackson? How is the defense looking and will this be a dominant year for the super talented Brian Orakpo? We'll discuss these things and more as we look at the Redskins and the entire NFC East during the segment.
