    What Are the Benefits of an Afrikan Centered Education

    in School

     What would be the benefits of changing and/or infusing an African Centered Education into the public schools of Philadelphia and abandoning the eurocentric pedagogy?  Over 50% of the student population in Philadelphia are Afrikan scholars born in America and according to the most recent stastics found in the The Notebook, (a newspaper publication that deals with the Philadelphia public schools), "Pennsylvania is one of 20 states in which the African American graduation rate is below 66 percent, and one of 16 states in which the Latino graduation rate is below 66 percent (both are 65 percent). The gap between White and Black graduation rates and White and Latino graduation rates is, in both cases, 23 percentage points. The White graduation rate in Pennsylvania now stands at 88 percent." In the opinion of Afrikan an African Centered core curriculum is not only necessary, it is long over due.  


    My special guest this evening is Dr. Jalaal Hayes, a born and raised scholar of North Philadelphia who graduated high school at 15 and college at 18, (Lincoln University), and became the youngest man to earn a Ph.D from Delaware State Universuty at the age of 22. This amazing brother's doctorate is in chemistry, and instead of going for six figures he is a teacher in one of South Philadelphia's public neighborhood charter high schools. He currently has his own tutoring company. I hope you will join us as Dr. Jalaal Hayes weighs in on the state of the Philadelphia public school system from a first person Afrikan perspective.

    Is it time for a Grassroots Agriculture Network?

    in Entrepreneur

    My thoughts on doing a grassroots agriculture network with the goal of covering newes that both farmers and the public want to know.


    In some ways very easy in others difficult.


    As in there are a lot of Farm events around the Midwest that need to be covered then brought to the public  To the tech to cover them is easy, coving the cost to do so is the hard part.


    Looking to see if there is support for this idea.

    T2Q: Feb. 9, 2016 - Valentine's Day, Medicine at School, & Beyonce

    in Current Events

    Valentine responsibilities, kids taking medicine at school, and black people and wealth on tonight's show!


    Valentine's Day


    Sunday is a day of love in many households across the country (or lust).  How will you spend it?  What is your favorite Valentine's Day memory?  What is the man's/woman's role to their mate on Valentine's Day?


    Meds in School


    A Texas girl was suspended for attempting to save another girl's life by allowing her to use her inhaler.  Should a 12 year old be held responsible for her actions in sharing a "controlled substance" when she thought another child was dying?


    Beyonce's Message in Music


    FOX News lost their minds (again) over "blackness."  Beyonce gave a tribue to the Black Panthers with her Super Bowl attire.  She also performed a show that referenced black issues.  Was it wrong to inject race in the Super Bowl?  Was she too radical for the event?


    All of this and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."


    Show No. 567


    Scheduled for 75 mins.
