Students dropping out of high school continues to be an alarming trend. Data suggests that 7% of U.S. students left high school without a diploma in 2011. While this is down from 9.9% in 2003, this is nothing to celebrate. The black male dropout rate was 8.3% in 2011, and for Hispanic males it was 14.6% that year. While there are various reasons why a student ends up dropping out of school, for many, there is a long period of disengagement that ensues beforehand. At home, parents should spend more time providing positive guidance, and in the classroom, teachers can continue to find innovative ways to reach students. The famed scholar Booker T. Coleman has said, "What Michael Jordan did on the basketball court, and what the Williams sisters do on the tennis court, black children will be able to do in the classroom." Let's encourage our children to be great, and provide them with the tools to be able to compete in a global economy.

Lisa Hodges is the quiet, reserved first lady of the fast growing Pilgrim Baptist Church; and unbeknown to those around her, her quietness is a direct reflection of her discontent life. Charles, her husband, has his focus on climbing the ministerial ladder--and the many women standing in line to fulfill his every need and desire--that he fails to acknowledge his wife's growing frustration. Lisa, the mother of three, has gotten lost in the lives of her children--and in the role of being a first lady--and has long ago given up on obtaining any happiness or success of her own. Believing that her only joy came from her weekly meetings with her other first lady friends, the very sexy and talented Alex Mitchell arrives at her church, causing Lisa to feel her only happiness came in a brown-eyed, caramel-skinned, muscled, 6-foot frame. The two soon begin a sexy, whirlwind affair that results in a forbidden, shared love and an unwanted pregnancy. On the other hand, with secrets of his own, Alex threatens to expose them all, one secret at a time. Will Lisa be able to deny her love for Alex and fix the mess she's gotten herself into? Or will her actions bring down her husband, the church, and her family?

We’ll be at it again, this Thursday at 10pm! It’s our adult conversation…”X After Dark”
The 1st Date vs The 90 Day Rule!
What are the Pro's and Con's of each? Does a man REALLY lose respect for you if you have sex with him on the 1st date? Does making the man wait for sex stack up respect points? Are women offended that men desire them sexually? Is regulating sex based on a time line a form of control? What are your thoughts?
