    Breaking the Chains...Caring for our Elders: the Wisdom Council

    in Motivation

    I have a dream...Celebrating Our 50 Years of Jubilee!


    Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality. So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? How will we strengthen our kids, famillies and our communities now?


    Fifty years ago, Dr. King's "I Have a Dream..." Speech debuted in Detroit and transformed a nation. Now we Celebrate our 50th Year of Jubilee for the Selma March to Montgomery, and join in struggle to teaching us all to Evolve in our Beliefs, Values and Purpose for Elevating our Consciousness on the Greatness that lies within us - all of us!


    Our ancesters from Africa knew the power of connection to the Divine, while honoring the human-ness in each other. I invite you to remember the greatness of our people, and we start by remembering our Elders, the holders of Wisdom. Our featured guest  for today's show is Pam Perry, the Communications Director for the Detroit Area Agency on Aging. She helps promote the DAAA’s services and  events to the Detroit community through both local and online media so we can empower our Elders to be safe, healthy and independent as long as we are blessed to have them with us. 


    Please join me as she shares valuable information for the elders in your family, church and community.


    Join the Movement to raise the Love Vibrations in 2015!!
    And as always......Be Amazing!

    OUR COMMON GROUND :: " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

    in Politics Progressive

    OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham


    Tonight:           " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

     police misconduct, college students singing songs of lynching Black people or elected officialswe are quick to defend the system as a whole and say that these are just examples of “a few bad apples”. We submit that such arguments are ‘bullshyt’. These problems are definitely systematic and "the bad apple arguments" do not pass the test of logic. 
    Does not a rotten apple pollute all the apples in the crate ? Or, is their bacteria in the crate which infects all the apples ? This racist behavior living in a “specialized white male culture’ living off of white privilege and supremacy is impossible. It pollutes and empowers whatever real or assumed power they are granted. Our children die and live by this system. Our tax dollars support it.

    Preparing Elders For The World of Tomorrow: How Can It Be Done?

    in Women

    It's said you can't teach an old dog new tricks. But in some cases you have to try, in order to help an old dog survive. The world of tomorrow is full of technological, advances that many seniors are resistant to learn how to master. But people are living longer, and the new systems of mass communication are a part of the present and the future. Adult education specialist Dr. Wanda Carter joins us today to discuss her research and experience on how senior citizens learn and can be taught survival in tomorrow's high tech society.
