    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.

    Sharpton on hunger strike! NOT! - Marriage a human right?

    in Politics

    Hr1  UK welfare bride who is too fat to work says taxpayers should pay $15k for her wedding. It's a human right!


    Woman passed over for a job due to inappropriate attire. Judgement is one of those skills you need to land a job, that includes in your attire & how you handle criticism. The only way this woman is going to land a job now is by getting a face transplant after posting a profanity-laced rant on social media.


    Hr2   Millennials, common sense, and entitlements. Do you hire people in the millennial generation?


    Ben Carson says he and Rev. Al Sharpton have the same goal for America. Ben is either naive and trying to give Sharpton the benefit of the doubt or completely oblivious. Either way, he's not equipped to be president!


    Only in California would legislators declare a state of emergency after dumping perfectly good, clean water into the ocean in order to save an un-endangered bait fish! We should have been capturing that water for years. Now we have a man-made dust bowl, courtesy of the California Legislature. Genius! 


    Hr3  Ohio public school hosts “Covered Girl Challenge” asks students to wear a hijab for a day. Do you think it's ok? Do you think they'll also challenge students to wear a yarmulke? A cross? A priest's robe? A Sikh dastaar? Doubtful.


    Rev. Al Sharpton launches hunger strike to get Loretta Lynch AG confirmation.


    Out-of-state students at UVA and UMD were asked if they would be willing to give up their U.S. citizenship to become “undocumented students” so their tuition would be $80k less. Think they did it? Yep!


    Scott Eastwood reveals what Clint Eastwood was like as a father, Old school upbringing.


    And now, the California legislature is working to provide medical for illegals. Why?
