    Jamel Robinson, founder of the Jamel Robinson Child Welfare Reform Initiative

    in Education

    Tonight on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com, Meet Jamel Robinson!  After spending 21 years in the foster care system without being adopted, he beat the odds and is now a successful child welfare reform advocate.


     


    This show is dedicated to  Amanda Berry Smith 1837-1915
     devoted her life to the ministry of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. Her most noted achievement is the opening of the first orphanage for black children in Illinois.
     In 1899, the orphanage opened its doors to homeless African American girls. The 12-room brick house that served as the orphanage was the first of its kind in Illinois.
    The community at large was receptive to Smith’s evangelical message and supported the presence of the orphanage. By 1910, the building housed 33 children, up from 12 in 1900
    In Harvey, Illinois, a suburb founded by temperance groups south of Chicago, Smith took up the duties of the national representative for the WCTU, and wrote her life’s story. An Autobiography: The Story of the Lord’s Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith, the Colored Evangelist was published in 1893. Through book sales, donations, and lecturing fees, she began to raise money for a new cause: an orphanage for black children. She founded and distributed a small newspaper, The Helper, in order to generate publicity and income for the orphanage and other worthy charities

    In New York City, there are nearly 14,000 children in foster care, with almost 6,000 new youth entering the system every year.   Of those youth, approximately 1/3 are between the ages of 13-19, and less than 20% expect to be adopted. That equates to 1,100 youth aging out of the foster care system in New York each year without a permanent home, family or support network.

    US Law Enforcement Now Have The Capability to "See" Through Walls...Should They?

    in Politics

     


    Police now ‘see’ through walls and know if you’re home


    The Range-R is a piece of military equipment that police are using now to check if there’s someone in a building.


    The Radar-R is handheld and can detect whether there is human life inside a building.


    Police forces increasingly are taking advantage of the technology behind military equipment initially designed for combat.


    Sometimes, though, the police might be coy about which of these gadgets they use to protect and serve.


    USA Today reports that, for a couple of years now, some police forces have been using a device that can determine whether a building is occupied — without having to enter the premises. However, this information only came to light when a police officer at a suppression hearing in a Denver court said that he’d used a Range-R.
