The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.
The federal government has announced the proposal of many changes in its Public a Welfare system. One of those changes the government wishes to implement is mandatory drug testing for all welfare recipients. Is this a good idea or in violation of our civil right? Join Bryckk and LaKrush as we examine the welfare system and discuss whether not you agree or disagree with this method.

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

I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

Civil Chat with Lee looks at the NRA and its refusal to step up and support gun control. Our violent gun culture is becoming more dangerous due to the unrestricted access to firearms. The legislation we do have is not enough and the NRA pays millions of dollars to lobbysists to combat any efforts at reform. Trey Gowdy and his committee target Hilary on Benghazi to "weaken" her as voiced by Kevin Mc Carthy. Hilary breaks from the president on the TPP.
