    What Are the Benefits of an Afrikan Centered Education

    in School

     What would be the benefits of changing and/or infusing an African Centered Education into the public schools of Philadelphia and abandoning the eurocentric pedagogy?  Over 50% of the student population in Philadelphia are Afrikan scholars born in America and according to the most recent stastics found in the The Notebook, (a newspaper publication that deals with the Philadelphia public schools), "Pennsylvania is one of 20 states in which the African American graduation rate is below 66 percent, and one of 16 states in which the Latino graduation rate is below 66 percent (both are 65 percent). The gap between White and Black graduation rates and White and Latino graduation rates is, in both cases, 23 percentage points. The White graduation rate in Pennsylvania now stands at 88 percent." In the opinion of Afrikan an African Centered core curriculum is not only necessary, it is long over due.  


    My special guest this evening is Dr. Jalaal Hayes, a born and raised scholar of North Philadelphia who graduated high school at 15 and college at 18, (Lincoln University), and became the youngest man to earn a Ph.D from Delaware State Universuty at the age of 22. This amazing brother's doctorate is in chemistry, and instead of going for six figures he is a teacher in one of South Philadelphia's public neighborhood charter high schools. He currently has his own tutoring company. I hope you will join us as Dr. Jalaal Hayes weighs in on the state of the Philadelphia public school system from a first person Afrikan perspective.

    Power of Perception writers with Cindy C. Murray

    in Spirituality


    I’ve lived in San Diego most my life and love it here!  I have a Business Degree from Cal Poly, Pomona and started to work in marketing at Hewlett-Packard Co. after graduation.  I was able to use my creativity and writing skills in my job as a trade show specialist at H.P.    I’m married and have two daughters that are in college who have inspired me to write Young Fiction/Middle Grade chapter books.  As I would volunteer in their classes, I would notice that many students would struggle as they read chapter books.  I also noticed that the books they liked to read the most were books that had action, adventure, and many were mysteries.  I observed from raising my kids that the better they could read, the easier it was to keep up in their classes in middle school, high school and college.  Therefore, I began to create my characters and eventually write a series of chapter books called The Adventures of Sophie and Scottie. The feedback I’ve been getting from students in grades 3 and up has been amazing!  The readers can relate to the main characters, Sophie and Scottie, as well as the support characters that can be almost anything!  I’m inspired from the feedback and the awards I’ve received to continue with this series.  I have two books published: Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of the Monarch Mystery, and Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of Something’s Fishy.  My third book, Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of Sweet Tooth Rock is now in editing.

    Unspoken Words: Thoughts of the Millennial Generation

    in Pop Culture

    Today on Unspoken Words, Robert Dunn chats with co-founders of ofakind Erica Cerulo & Claire Mazur! Claire and Erica met at University of Chicago in 2002 when a mutual frenemy introduced them, suggesting they should be friends because they both, at some point during their college careers, dated (Division III) basketball players. They quickly realized they had other things in common, an appreciation of fashion and a Tracy Flick-like approach to their extracurriculars among them. Both girls moved to New York post-graduation, and often found themselves talking about peers who had started businesses and their mutual admiration for those who had taken the plunge. When they conceptualized Of a Kind—over the course of 25 frantic emails in 12 hours—they knew they had to pursue it.

    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.
