TONIGHT: Listen to The African History Network Show, (Special Day) Saturday, Jan. 14th, 2012 8pm-11pm EST.  We'll continue our discussion on Part 2: "The Distortion Of The Image Of African-American Women".  Thursdays show was hot for Part 1 and tonight will be even better.  Why does the media usually portray African-American women as being oversexed, obsessed with physical attributes like hair and makeup, obese, single, bitter, etc.? We'll discuss a recent article from The Final Call Newspaper that asks this question. 
We'll also discuss, "The Distortion Of The Legacy Of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." and we'll play some excerpts from our interview with Prof. Manu Ampim on this subject.  You'll learn things about Dr. King that you never knew and we'll deal with why the media purposely focuses in on The "I Have A Dream Speech" but doesn't want to talk about the last 2 years of his life.

The African History Network Show can be heard on Mondays and Thursdays, 8pm - 11pm EST.  For more information please visit www.AfricanHistoryNetwork.com or Call In and listen at 914-338-1375.
