The research process continues with the 25th installment of the Bedford & Sullivan Podcast!
I realized recently I was sorely lacking on my research of not only the Negro Leagues in Brooklyn, but Black American history in Brooklyn overall. Producer Brian Winett has been working on developing a TV Series regarding the Negro Leagues, and though his project is not at all Brooklyn-centric, he has gathered plenty of fascinating material regarding the rich history of Black baseball before integration.
We'll discuss his personal baseball roots, what attracted him to the subject of the Negro Leagues, and the character of Rube Foster (the Negro Leagues pioneer). We'll also talk some shop, discussing what the narrative script writing process is like for Brian.
So, join us at 3PM ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan Podcast!

Prominent educator in the school system, Acquilla McKoy joins Gabriel Rich on Thursday on The RICH Report. February 4, 2016. All our lives we’ve been told that education is the key to success. You want to do the right thing for your child. You want to give them all the tools they need for a successful life to succeed and as a parent, you believe you are doing the right thing. In the classroom, education tells a different story when bureaucracy comes with it. In this episode of The RICH Report, we will examine how the educational system has affected Indigenous Amer’icans over the years. On The RICH Report, we ask the question, should government education continue or should parents step up their game with other resources.

We are human. We can think. We can see. We can hear. We can reason too. Sooooo, are we who have been considered to be black, of today and Negro, yesterday and colored before then. Each phase has been connected with the process of being captured, abandonmed, abused, institutionally inferioriated, and then filtered through a demeaning learning process. A fictitious life has followed. As of today, no permanence has been fully established.
A country and its countrymen feel infringed upon, wanting the hands of time to turn back but they want to keep the advances made by the captured.
What are they, the migrants, who perhaps are the children of those who werved a sentence for seven years, received land and a captured " animal " to plow the fields, clean the houses after helping to build the houses and care for the babies of the newly releassed serf.
How does Prophet Muhammad ( saw) advance the thought process to release all once enslaved individuals?
