SORT BY Relevancy
This show is all about where are we today, 50 years after Selma. Has the movement lost all the key elements needed to move forward. As a race of people have Blacks lost focus, unity, key leadership and the drive to take the movement to the next level. Fifty years later Blacks are still facing racism, excessive force by police and a voter rights act that does not give Blacks the full voting privileges that all other groups are afforded. Ferguson is a clear example of how excessive force by police is still being used on peaceful protesters just as it was on Bloody Sunday 50 years ago.
The march in Selma was a historic event for our community. Many brothers and sisters suffered at the hands of the police on bloody sunday. The recent movie Selma shared with us a piece of history that isn't taught in American schools. A few things have changed for our community since that great march. We have the first African American president and have made great advances in our community. Sadly some of the same issues from 50 years ago we still deal with today. How can we improve and make progress? Why are racist still and forever obsessed with us as black people?

The march on Selma was celebrated yesterday. I viewed the march as a courageous act by Black people. But, at what cost? 50 years later and we are still not where we need to be economically. My mother in-law asked me was I watching it. This is what you read about, she stated. I told her no. I think it is commendable that they would put their lives on the line. But, while we were getting our heads bashed in to sit at a white man's lunch counter. We were signing our own death certificate economically.

Jim will recount his experiences in the shattered region and provide fascinating insight into events and occurrences.
Jim had some amazing experiences with FEMA in various ways which he will share. On this show we will focus on aspects of the infrastructure, how the federal/state/local resources may have been better deployed…and provide significant insight into the balance of the three key governmental entities.
Cary and Gretchen will be hosting…we encourage folks to call in and share their feelings…See ya there!
If you don’t like FEMA…call in…ask some questions or share your anger…Call in and lets crawl into the controversy…necessary or not…open discussion is a catharsis…let’s get ‘er done!
Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’. The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States. It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos. The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.
The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten

John Howard Griffin had embarked on a journey unlike any other. Many black authors had written about the hardship of living in the Jim Crow South. A few white writers had argued for integration. But Griffin, a novelist of extraordinary empathy rooted in his Catholic faith, had devised a daring experiment. To comprehend the lives of black people, he had darkened his skin to become black. As the civil rights movement tested various forms of civil disobedience, Griffin began a human odyssey through the South, from New Orleans to Atlanta.
John Howard Griffin and the Story of Black Like Me. “It’s a useful historical document about the segregated era, which is still shocking to younger readers. It’s also a truthful journal in which Griffin admits to his own racism, with which white readers can identify and perhaps begin to face their own denial of prejudice
Most Americans saw civil rights as a “Southern problem,” but Griffin’s theological studies had convinced him that racism was a human problem. “If a white man became a Negro in the Deep South,” he wrote on the first page of Black Like Me, “what adjustments would he have to make?” Haunted by the idea, Griffin decided to cross the divide. “The only way I could see to bridge the gap between us,” he would write, “was to become a Negro
As the civil rights movement accelerated, Griffin gave more than a thousand lectures and befriended black spokesmen ranging from Dick Gregory to Martin Luther King Jr. Notorious throughout the South, he was trailed by cops and targeted by Ku Klux Klansmen,
leaving him for dead. By the late 1960s, however, the civil rights movement and rioting in Northern cities highlighted the national scale of racial injustice .
