My guest this Sunday, Nov. 3 is author Nike Campbell-Fatoki. We will be 'chatting' about her new book, Thread of Gold Beads.
About the author:
Nike Campbell-Fatoki was born in Lvov, Ukraine to Nigerian parents. She spent her formative years in Lagos, Nigeria, listening to stories and folktales told by her maternal Grandparents. Her fondest memories were the weekends her mother took her and her siblings to Kings Way, on Lagos Island, returning back with bags of story books.
About the book:
Amelia, daughter of the last independent King of Danhomè, King Gbèhanzin, is the apple of her father’s eye, loved beyond measure by her mother, and overprotected by her siblings. She searches for her place within the palace amidst conspirators and traitors to the Kingdom. Just when Amelia begins to feel at home in her role as a Princess, a well-kept secret shatters the perfect life she knows. Someone else within the palace also knows and does everything to bring the secret to light. A struggle between good and evil ensues causing Amelia to leave all that she knows and loves. She must flee Danhomè with her brother, to south-western Nigeria. In a faraway land, she finds the love of a new family and God. The well-kept secret thought to have been dead and buried, resurrects with the flash of a thread of gold beads. Amelia must fight for her life and what is left of her soul.
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes recording artist Ashley Brown to Conversations LIVE to discuss her love of music and her debut project.

About the author:
Kristina Wolf Dreisbach is a preschool teacher in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. “Children in my classes loved to hear my stories that I wrote or made up on a whim for them. My dream has been to write a children’s book and now God has made my dream come true! I hope every child who reads this book will know that God makes us all different, and to be confident in Him and who He has made us to be!” Her family once had a duck named Winston.
About the book:
Winston the duck is born on Cady Cove Lake to Mr. and Mrs. Mallard Duck. All the animals come to see the blessed event. But when Winston is born, he has a big orange bill that makes him different. Winston knows God made him different for a reason and is determined to find out why.
One night after the family goes to sleep, Winston heads out on a journey around Cady Cove Lake. He meets Mr. Turtle who laughs at him, but Winston just keeps walking. He meets Mr. Raccoon and together they search for the reason Winston has a big orange bill. The two get into trouble with an owl that wants to eat them for dinner!

This week's "Gift from the Elders to the Next Generation" series, is hosted by NCEBC Queen Mother, Dr. Adelaide Sanford and will feature a lively and parent-empowering conversation with Dr. Sharon Washington.
All NCEBC Stakeholders should please plan to join us for this live discussion.
Dr. Sharon Washington is an education anthropologist and the founder of Anthropologi Educational Research and Development, an international firm created to bring “education” back to schools. She is also the author of The Educational Contract, which tackles the difficult job of explaining why so many African American students do so poorly in school by peeling back the layers of why their parents let them, and explaining how the 1954 US Supreme Court case Brown, which was intended to bring equality to education, actually has contributed to the phenomenon. The Educational Contract calls for a deep spiritual work in our public educational system and calls for parents to lead that movement—a movement in the practice of freedom and participation in the transformation of our world.

This week Robert Lloyd covers the outrageous story of the 'Peanuts' comic series and its creator Charles Schulz. How did this ever come about and what would propel someone to draw such simple caricatures? Robert will cover:
*Who really is Charles Schulz and where did he come from? (Hint: German ancestry)
*Did his high school yearbook committee really turn down his offer to help with the artwork? (Yep)
*Could such a mild mannered (or is he?) gentleman handle a 50. caliber machine gun in WW2?
*How did the Peanut series ever come about?
*Is Charlie Brown actually Charles Schulz in disguise?
*Who is 'the red-haired girl?'
*And who are the 'Royal Guardsmen?'
Have a great time learning of this talented White man. Contact Robert at email@example.com
Badgirls Love to talk shit!! Tonight the new Transgender Law On August 12th, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the School Success and Opportunity Act – amending the state's education code in an effort to reduce discrimination against transgender students in grades K-12. But a firestorm of dissent is building around one section of the bill, stating that transgender students will have the opportunity to play on sports teams and use sex-segregated facilities that correspond with their gender identity, even if this doesn't match their birth certificate.
