World Footprints will travel along The Road To Freedom with author and former civil rights activist Charlie Cobb as he introduces us to the places of the movement and the personalities who made those places historically relevant. Then meet fellow travelers Scott Hartblay and Christine Bischoff as they recount their independent journeys along the civil rights trail through Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.
Birmingham, Alabama is known as "The Magic City" and the "Pittsburgh of the South" because of its steelmaking prowess and civil rights legacy. Walking through the city offers a powerful history lesson and inspiring life stories of those who sacraficed for freedom.
World Footprints will revisit two attractions that takes us back to a dark chapter in America's history: the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and The Sixteenth Street Baptist Church where a tragic bombing changed the course of history. Our tour guide is Barry McNealy, a teacher and master tour guide who has been seen on C-SPAN.
Join World Footprints as we walk through Birmingham's and American history.

Today on "It's My House" we shall give you a sneak preview of "Civil Rights radio". Civil Rights Radio will give you the bigger picture of Civil Rights. We belive that many people do not know the basics of Civil Rights, however they can quickly learn them in a matter of minutes. Once they grasp the simple basic idea of (If you do not know your rights.....you do not have any), then anyone can empower themselves to use the tactics and strategies that are availble via Civil Rights.

As the nation finishes celebrating the 30 year old holiday of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, the civil rights movement is on the minds of many. Some hated it and more loved it. In spite of the historical significance of the movement many can rightly argue that the condition of the black and other minority groups in this country are worse than ever. WHY IS THIS? HOW CAN THIS BE? Let's explore God's word to see if it can shed some light.
CWT4R will discuss with Dr. Rhue the movie SELMA and how the character Bayard Rustin who was one of Dr. Kings’ advisors was portrayed. We will ask Dr Rhue to explain how important Bayard Rustin was to the civil rights movement and how he should really go down in history. Dr Rhue will be talking about other LGBT African Americans leaders who paved the way for us as Black Americans and were hidden during the movement but were instrumental in its success as Bayard Rustin. Join us as Dr Rhue discusses the many faces in history and the many faces of those who were GAY.
Dr. Sylvia Rhue is a writer, activist, filmmaker, and producer. She is a native of southern California. Sylvia went on to receive a Doctorate in Human Sexuality from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, CA. She was the first African American to receive this degree. As a part of her dissertation, she was able to create a documentary on black lesbians, which re-kindled her childhood interest in making movies. This passion culminated in her co-producing with Dr. Dee Mosbacher and Frances Reid, the acclaimed documentary “All God’s Children,” a film that dealt with African American values, gays and lesbians in the civil rights movements, and African American responses to homophobia.
