    Tonight, we will be sharing a replay in honor of Black History month. Listen in to this very informative and candid conversation about how Jim Crow Laws still exist today. America is the most diversified country in the world, and yet, racism is still alive and well in this great country we call "land of the free".


    Let's talk about the issue. Can this country learn to tune out the divisive rhetoric and unite together to Make A Difference? We would like to hear your thoughts. Tell us what you think in the comment section.

    Carter G. Woodson and the History of Black History Month

    in Culture

    Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.

    Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson.[5] His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.


    Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.


    In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.

    Spartan Life Radio - Black History Month Highlights

    in Education

    On the last episode of Spartan Life Radio, we talked about the stupendous Black History Month (BMH) 2016 observance taking place at Norfolk State University. In this episode, we tracked down several faculty members who have created unique and interesting programming for this year's observance. Did you know that there's a connection between the famous Buffalo Soldiers of Virginia's history and the Philippines? We're going to talk to NSU's Dr. April T. Manalang, assistant professor in the Department of History and Interdisciplinary Studies, about her research into this "hidden" Virginia History and the program she's created for the Black History Month Celebration. Professor Anthony Stockard, director of the NSU Theatre Company, will discuss the encore performance of the award-winning play "The Brothers Size." The drama has won several awards and was recently presented at the Kennedy Center's American College Theatre Festival. "The Brothers Size" was also presented at last year's National Black Theatre Festival making it the most-awarded production in Norfolk State University history! And, last but certainly not least, Professor Carol Pretlow, NSU's resident political guru, who will round out our panel will discuss a BHM program involving students from the political science department. African American Perspectives on International Politics and Foreign Policy is a panel discussion on the topic from the student perspective.


    Join us for what promises to be a spirited conversation.

    BREAKING: Donald J. Trump & The Most Important Election in World History

    in Culture

    'Today' is nothing more than a product of our 'Past Decisions' - a 'Looking Glass' of sorts; The images it reflects are filled with the decisions of our past and are 100% constructed using only materials harvested from the consequences of our actions - and inactions.


    The upcoming Election will become known - in the future - as one of the most important times in our history.  Never has so many VITALLY IMPORTANT issues been called to question - all within a single election.  Rarely has there been so much at stake.  The unfortunate part about that is that so many people - being in full possession of the ability to affect those outcomes - will make a CONSCIOUS DECISION to do, instead......absolutely nothing.


    These are the facts:


    The financial credibility of the USA is all but gone, with a deficit hoverin around $20T (that's $20 Trillion):  How, then, will our currency continue to compete - or even survive - in the future 'Marketplace of the World'?


    We've all but exiled and made null those few citizens who are the ONLY LINE of defense and barrier between the 'Safe Haven' that is our country and the cold, cruel world that lies beyond our borders - our Veterans:  How will we continue to count on those who have VOLUNTEERED to serve their country? 


    Status Quo Politicians have all but erased the separation of Church and State, creating laws with unspeakable demands:  When the Catholics in our country are summarily forced to perform abortions, will anything that we hold sacred remain?


    Our Nation is bursting at the seams with those whose Jihad would see them die - just to see us die:  Will this massive influx of non-Americans, purposefully brought to our country by a Falsely Inserted POTUS dilute and muffle the Great Voice that used to be the Heartbeat of our Nation?

    Black History Month, could this celebration be the key to the future!

    in Self Help

    In this episode of The REAL we put the REAL light on Black History Month; one month out of the year offically set aside for the celebration of the contributions of Blacks to the growth and development of the United States of America.


    Turns out, that's not what it has become, at all.  And, even more importantly, it is not what it has a much, much greater potential to be!


    Join us, (Listen, call, chat) when The REAL meets Black History Month. :)
