    hmmmmmm wonder what BET gonna air this month
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    * State of the Re: Union: Who Was This Man - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech” is an iconic moment in the history of civil rights. But this historic moment may have never happened if it weren’t for a man standing in King’s shadow, Bayard Rustin, a man with a number of seemingly incompatible labels: black, gay, Quaker. Although he had numerous passions and pursuits, his most transformative act, was to counsel MLK on the use of non-violent resistance. Rustin also helped to engineer the March on Washington and frame the Montgomery bus boycott. Why is Rustin not synonymous with Civil Rights? This program is hosted by Al Letson.

    Tv land presents afri cobra art for the people

    AfriCOBRA

    In Chicago 1968, a group of artists came together and began to define a uniquely black aesthetic in visual arts. They sought to make art that spoke directly to the needs, aspirations and experiences of black America, and that celebrated what was beautiful and heroic about black culture. The seed of what would become the AfriCOBRA collective was planted at the Wall of Respect, a mural on a Chicago building that depicted black heroes and leaders. The wall became both a meeting place and the communitys visual affirmation of African American cultural, intellectual and political heritage.

    February 7th 8:30PM/7:30C
