Tonight on The Gist of Freedom Join Historian Yul Anderson. He will explain the State of Black Studies and his statement below.
"Black Studies program throughout American have been taken over by others from the Diaspora community such that African American studies becomes Diaspora study programs. Leadership of Black/Afro-American studies programs have morphed and lost interest in the origination of such programs and have now been commingled with Latin American Study, Caribbean studies, Haitian Studies, to the point that there is no longer a distinctive core of Black or African American study programs in America. This has resulted in a tug of war of funding and resentment amongst African American Scholars who feel their distinctive turf has been invaded, as a result less funding for Black or African American studies programs exist.
The Global media, while seeing the Africans influence and power in American as a result of Presidents Obama's African Summit now place more emphasis on African images rather than African American images, the so called "New Black'. Traditional HBCU's while relatively less expensive than traditional main stream white liberal colleges have become much more favorable as the lack of qualified Black African American Scholars are not able to fill the teaching vacancies, as a result HBCU's become much more inviting to the diaspora communities which in turn morph HSBCU's into a more international college, taking on more international issues with substantive professors from the international community.
Emergent Studies Institute is a dynamic non-profit online learning environment. We employ innovative Internet technology to connect students and teachers in new ways. Educational programs may include experiments in sustainability (permaculture, ecological housing, humane animal husbandry), youth projects, community arts projects, and more. In addition to rigorous academic studies, our students practice engagement in heart-centered community service, supported by credible research and grounded in personal experience. Our programs are designed to be in-touch with the needs of students’ local communities, as well as recognizing our connection to a greater global society. ESI’s collegial environment encourages student/ faculty collaboration on mutually beneficial learning experiences supported by an affordable educational system that addresses each student’s needs and circumstances. We offer work-study and volunteer opportunities to reduce the cost of tuition. We believe both academic and practical training is built upon participants’ connection with Spirit. It is this universal spirituality that connects us with ourselves and everyone around us. We all walk upon the path of Spirit, and just as the nautilus shell represents the soul’s journey, so do our graduates emerge with the understanding and commitment to build bridges in an ever-changing world.

Today we shall discuss how anyone can organize a "legal studies group". This can be done on a family level, neighborhood level, community level, or faith based level.
Vincent Richardson, Sr. will discuss how anyone can get access to affordable legal services via Legal Sheild and he will also discuss how you can start your own "legal services marketing" business.
As usual on "It's My House Radio", please get your pen and paper out so that you can take notes and then convert those notes into action.
GENDER STUDIES, WOMEN’S STUDIES—DO WE REALLY STILL NEED THEM?
You remember women’s studies – started around the time young women were supposedly burning their bras. If you’re a supporter of the programs, they are a place to learn the history of feminism, equality, and women’s accomplishments in the world. If you aren’t a supporter, those programs are for women with short hair and Birkenstocks to learn how to resent men. Fortunately, both those stereotypes are off the mark. So – what is women’s studies and how are such programs relevant today?
We’ll get those answers and more as Yi-Chun Tricia Lin, Director and Professor of the Women’s Studies Program at Southern Connecticut State University, joins us for Saturday’s show. Growing up in Taiwan, Tricia was expected to follow a life as previous generations of women had- obedient and submissive to patriarchy. That didn’t work for her, and instead she went to graduate school and became a teacher focusing on social justice issues, including gender, racial, and socio-economic issues. She also is very active in leadership of a number of academic and political organizations, including Veteran Feminists of America, New Haven League of Women Voters, and the National Women’s Studies Association. Tricia also contributed to several publications including a special issue on transnational Indigenous feminism with Lectora (University of Barcelona), forthcoming in 2016. If anyone knows the current status of women’s studies, it is Tricia.
An extended show this evening with a lot going on and a great guest!
And we'll tell you about our upcoming exciting Virtual Security Conference!
Dr. Bruce Benson is our guest tonight. Professor, author and a man with an insight on private policing. He has written books and done studies on the subject.
We'll be looking at conversions by cities to employ private police and volunteer citizens, history and the future od private policing.
Also, we have a ton of news and information to pass along to you!

If you are a home owner you need to organize in your community a "legal studies group". Things that need to be discussed are:
The local legal landscape
What are your rights as a home owner
What steps can you take to protect yourself
Understanding how local government works in relationship to home ownership
Of course your study group can invite community leaders, code enforcement, judges, and lawyers to your study group.
Keep in mind that if you do not know your rights............you don't have any.
