Yes, today's guest has the same last name as Karla Byrd, John's cohost, and that is because Oliver Byrd is Karla's husband. On today's show, John and Karla begin interviewing the 2015 class of Urban Heroes and they will start with Oliver. Oliver worked at Mellon Bank for many years, but also served the community as the chair of the United Way and the chairman of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in downtown Pittsburgh. Oliver will talk about growing up in Pittsburgh and what motivated him to serve so selflessly throughout his career.
John and Karla met Deloris in 2014 while they were conducting a workshop for the residents of Hazelwood, a community in renewal in the City of Pittsburgh. They were so impressed with her story, which included surviving a bout with cancer, and leadership that they both nominated her to be part of the 2015 Urban Heroes class. Today Deloris joins Karla and John to tell listeners her story.

A discussion with Ms. Linda Harris, Mr. Patrick Jones and Mr. James Taylor. Show title "What Successful Urban Schools Do! Experts Share Best Practices.
NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances, resources, and the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores, therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.
"We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."
Diana Daniels, Executive Director, National Council on Educating Black Children

A former hustler who had been involved in some gangsta shit during his sojourn out in the streets, CATO attended college and pursued a paralegal degree after doing a short stint in federal prison on a gun charge and has plans to pursue a law degree in the future.
While behind the fence, CATO rediscovered his childhood love for writing stories and began putting together a string of stories that have bestsellers written all over them. A blog talk radio show host and blogger, CATO’s other passions include social activism, poetry, the outdoors, working out, cooking, baking and spending time with family and loved ones.
As of right now, CATO is single, but is currently waiting patiently for the Queen who can help him rule the kingdom.

How many of us set our clocks fast in order to give ourselves a few minutes to get it together in the morning? Does it work? Do we arrive at appointments any easier? Do we leave the house on time?
How can we get it together and stop slacking off? Practice, practice, practice
