    Sundown Town, Nappy Hair & God

    in Entertainment

    Black Heritage: Celebrating Black History Month,Part 1-  I spent time in the homes of two succesful southern black families. i wanted to understand a few things. I listened. I wanted to see if I could experience a few things through their eyes then get their freshest thoughts on how far we've come, where we are now, and where we're headed?
    I expected to be broadened and deepened; I didn't expect to be surprised. Perhaps, you will be too. Meet the Marina's and the Price's. And a few women with nappy hair.

    YOUTH CULTURE

    in Social Networking

    Examples of Youth Culture


    The term "youth culture" refers to the ways that teenagers conduct their lives. Youth culture can pertain to interests, styles, behaviors, music, beliefs, vocabulary, clothes, sports and dating. The concept behind youth culture is that adolescents are a subculture with norms, mores, behaviors and values that differ from the main culture of older generations within society.


    Commonly-used Youth Culture Examples


    ·         In the 1960's the wearing of clothes that indicated freedom


    ·         Following of music groups that perform music that speaks to the issues teenagers perceive themselves enduring at the time such as Nirvana in the 1990's and The Beatles in the 1960's


    ·         Hairstyles that exhibit a lack of conformity such as brightly colored hair, spiked hair, shaved heads


    ·         Behavior that is contrary to what is perceived to be accepted and expected by parents such as drinking, smoking, using drugs


    ·         Language usage that is bold in order to set themselves apart such as either excessive cursing or a usage of esoteric “cool” buzz words


    ·         Behaviors such as cutting school or low grade criminal activity in order to assert independence and non-conformity

    The Highs and Lows of Single Fathers Raising Daughters

    in Entertainment

    This week on WTTA, our topic of discussion will be quite interesting.  After airing, “The Delicate Dynamics of Mothers and Daughters”, I received a message from a male listener who shared some of his experiences as a single father and his relationship with his daughter.  He suggested I do a show about the topic and volunteered to share his experiences.  Within the last two weeks, I had a chance to connect with another single father of a daughter who was also willing to share his experiences. 


    Tim and Vince will give their unique perspective on being a single parent and what that entails. When we hear the title 'single parent', most of us naturally assume a female is the head of household.  In reality, there are quite a few single dads out there playing the role of dad AND mom.  I can testify that raising a male child as a single mom definitely has its challenges.  I’m curious to learn if we share similar experience and how they handle all of the little nuances that come with trying to raise a secure, intelligent woman. 


    I’d like to know: How do you handle the hair issues?  Dating? Her period? Do you date a lot?  How soon is too soon to introduce women to daughters? How do you deal with the attitudes?  I definitely have questions lol.


    The show will air Sunday, April 26, 2015 at 5:00 EST.  The Guest Call-In number is (713) 955-0703.


    Hope you can join the conversation.


    Peace & Kind Regards,

    Author and Film Director William Dickerson

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.


    William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.

    Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles. 

    Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”
