    Saxophonist Marion Meadows makes his label debut on Shanachie Entertainment with his 13th release, Whisper.
    Ronald Jackson of The Smooth Jazz Ride said about Whisper:
    "The material here is full of the Meadows musical diary of influences and style. Powerful, melodious, sensuous, and full of creative passion all at once. Here is, quite simply, another masterful effort from Meadows who has, throughout the years since and including his 1990 debut, continually worked his musical benevolence on jazz and R&B fans everywhere."

    Remembering Marion Berry Mayor for Life

    in Politics

    The "Mayor for Life," Marion Barry, was remembered Saturday in a huge community memorial service."He said, in his own words, 'I identify with the fallen, whoever they may be. Everybody, at some point in life, is going to get knocked down. I don't care who you are. How rich you are. How poor you are. If you fall down, fall down on your back and look up. And if you can look up, you can get up. And if you can get up, you can go up.'" Rev Willie Wilson
    Minister Louis Farrakhan roused the crowd with a story about a visit he made to Washington years ago and a reporter asking him about Barry's legal transgressions.As the reporter built up Farrakhan as a moral pillar, he said, "'What do you think,' she said, 'of a man who broke his marital vows and used drugs?' I said, 'Who are you talking about? John Fitzgerald Kennedy?'"NBC4

    Mayor Marion Barry, Bill Cosby, Ferguson, & Birth of a Nation

    in Politics

    This program will cover the great career of Mayor Marion Barry who descended to the land of the ancestors this week and the Bill Cosby fiasco.  Ever since darren wilson murdered our young Brother Mike Brown on August 9, 2014, whites have used their media to assassinate the character of Black men in this country.  From Adrian Peterson to Ray Rice to Mike Brown to Bill Cosby, the Black male image is under complete seige.

    Not since the time of "Birth of a Nation", when Black men were painted as sadistic rapists of white females, has the white hatred of Black men been this intense.  While the white media is encouraging white anglosaxons to view Black men as savages who should be slaughtered wholesale and white militias are preparing for Racial conflict, Black people are still locked into loving the Obama administration - the single most destructive political administration to Afrikan people in the history of this country.

    Let's talk tonight!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to establish the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Mr. Barry became its first national chairman.

In June 1965 he moved to Washington, where reporters occasionally referred to him as a “dashiki-clad militant.” A powerful speaker and street campaigner, he began pressing for home rule for the District of Columbia, a battle eventually won. He had found fertile political soil, since residents had only recently won the right to vote in presidential elections and had virtually no say in governing themselves.  In 1967, Mr. Barry started a jobs program for poor blacks, winning federal grants worth several million dollars. He won his first election in February 1970, to a citizens’ board created to smooth relations between police officers and black residents.
