I think that most people will agree that there are a number of issues that are causing these unfortunate conditions to occur in our families and communities.

Now that summer is coming to a close and our children are preparing to return to the classroom, I am reminded of a piece that we air here on the station by educator Jawanza Kunjufu where he says that children learn in different ways in the classroom. His findings and facts are based on years of study and observation of student/teacher behavior and achievement.

Why Do Most African-Americans Have No Desire To Seek Knowledge Of Self Beyond Their Grandparents and Great Grandparents? KTSCW

 

My recent family trip to Ancient Kemet (also known as Egypt) was an eye-opening experience that reaffirmed a number of things that I had either read about or seen in videos.
