Janet McCullough, owner of Charlotte Spa & Esthetics
Janet McCullough opened Charlotte Spa and Esthetics in 2017, her dream was to help others feel good by teaching them the importance of a good skin routine.
“Skincare is very important. It could make someone have a lack of self-esteem if their skin is not together.
The Texas native decided to open the business after she was laid off from a previous job and realized that she needed to have more than one source of income. (She’s also a licensed insurance agent and a certified revenue cycle analyst for a local healthcare company.) McCullough said she also was inspired by the fact that Americans are getting older, and with aging comes the need for better skin care.
McCullough describes business ownership as a journey.
In 2019, McCullough launched a non-profit called Silent Touch Therapy, an initiative she uses to teach cancer patients about skin care.
“I started thinking about how else could I use my skincare,” she said. “So, I started volunteering with the American Cancer Society — the Look Good, Feel Better program — working with cancer patients on how to care for their skin.

The links between Sierra Leone and the Gullah-Geechee people
Amadu Massally is our guest today. He is the CEO and co-founder of Fambul Tiki and he is from Sierra Leone, a country in West Africa, that is bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean. It is known for the white-sand beaches lining the Freetown Peninsula. And also as one that has minerals! The main ones being diamonds, gold, bauxite, rutile, limonite, and iron. We are also blessed with rich fauna and flora and have some unique hippopotamuses, over a hundred bird species, and even rare chimpanzees.
But one of the most interesting things about this country is how it helped to shape some parts of the world via the Transatlantic Slave Trade. And the formation of the capital city, Freetown, it is arguable, one of the most fascinating stories out there with regard to the establishment of capital cities, the world over. It is also the only country in Africa that can clearly show a two-way connection with the Gullah-Geechee people of South Carolina and Georgia to date. Sierra Leone has another two-way connection with the Maroons of Jamaica. We will explore some of those connections on these pages. While this is not well-known today, Sierra Leonean has a two-way connection with Trinidad and Tobago. Carriacou, Grenada; and Halifax, NS are also connections to Sierra Leone that Fambul Tik has explored.

It's How You Handle It: Life's Journey Guest: Eloise Murphy Purdie & Oglivia Purdie Gibson
“At the age of 90, I am birthing my book baby, ‘It's How You Handle It: Life’s Journey.’ While nurturing the contents of my biography, I walked right into a global Covid-19 pandemic. Many people were rudely awakened to find that diseases inside their bodies made them more vulnerable to contracting the virus. Even worst, it was revealed that African Americans were disproportionately more affected due to centuries of systemic inequities. The disregard for our needs caused many unfavorable health conditions called comorbidities, which integrated with the coronavirus and killed people fast and in large numbers. I was at risk because I had almost every pre-condition. My family history could reveal the patterns that led to this moment, but no in-depth stories had/have been written in the history books that I taught from. Now I know why my mother kept telling me stories of my family history, why I kept telling my children these stories, and why I must share with you,” shared Eloise Purdie passionately.
Eloise is faced with life’s ultimatum; reveal her history and the lessons it holds or risk it being lost to the world forever. In her story, “It’s How You Handle It: Life’s Journey,”Eloise tries her best to live to the fullest expression of herself, like her role model, Oprah Winfrey. Oprah said that she used her media career to say how people, "...experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome." This book is notably a narrative of perseverance through savage odds. It details the ironic story of Eloise; a history teacher that lived through some of the darkest moments in history but was never able to contribute her life story to the curriculum.
This work started as a simple labor of love but ended up a brilliant blueprint on how to elevate oneself in spite of any circumstance. The candid details she is able to recall decades later are remarkable and it is a unique blessing that God has granted her to keep these stories in such pristine condition. The story of Eloise pays homage to her family and is likely the story of many African Americans during the early 1900s; as they did what they could to recover from an enormous interruption to their rich history and prestige. Following slavery, many African Americans could have sunk under the weight of all that was stripped from them, as well as, the lack of resources, health, wealth, and education. Those, like Eloise, who were able to overcome the unpalatable atrocities of that time, have important stories of determination, foresight, and strength that are important to share.
At our best, we are all teachers. A true teacher at heart, Eloise's story brings the past to life better than any textbook ever could. The truth matters.

Writer & Director of "3 Days Leave" EW Brooks
The island of Oahu is known for its beaches and tourist attractions, but its buzzing film community isn’t far behind. On the heels of the island’s outstanding, “Ala Moana Boys,” a film by writer Alexander Deedy and directed by Keli’I Grace, a local production company, Eagle Brook Entertainment, will premiere it’s film, “3 Days Leave,” at Pearl Ridge’s Consolidated Theatre on November 18th.
Filmed on island with local talent and crew, this premiere will be a first time reveal to them as well.
“Each character within this project was forced outside of their comfort zones to become characters that didn’t reconcile with their own. It will be our extreme pleasure for them to see how it all played out,” says 3 Days Leave Writer, Producer, Director E.W. Brooks.
“We’re a new presence here on island but we were able to hire 10 crewmembers from the community and to pour into local businesses by utilizing their rentals. This is what it's about for me as a business owner, said Eagle Brook CFO, Anthony Brooks, “that is the magic behind the scenes. That’s what makes it worth it".
Local Female Cinematographer, Jannis Ortegon and Hawaii 50 Actress Judy Nguyen were a part of the cast and crew, just over 50% female. “If we all do our part to tip the scales toward equality in the workplace, maybe we can look up one day and see something different out there,” says the film’s Director.
3 Days Leave takes a hyperbolic look at police violence through a Rambo-centric lens. However, its creators are clear, “Don’t think you know our stance because you’ve seen our art. Our goal was to create a piece that would push the dialogue forward. That is it and that is all,” says Writer E.W. Brooks.

Protesters have called for the release of police bodycam footage, which authorities say they are prevented from making public without a court order.

Captain Dennis Muhammad Founder of The Peace Keepers Global Initiative speaks on the recent Police involved shootings in America
Men and Women are accepting their responsibility to make their communities a safe and peaceful place to live. Due to serious economical time there has been an increase of gun violence and crime with most of its victims being women and children. The safety of the women, children and elderly in the community must be paramount.
There must be a collective effort from all religious, social, law enforcement and grass root organizations to bring peace to these communities. Peace is the common denominator that allows us to transcend above our religious, political and racial differences.
We all want Peace in our homes, community and in the world. But there is no Peace when there is no justice. We must work hard to establish justice for all regardless of class, greed, or color. Where there is Love and harmony there is Peace of mind. We believe when peace is present, violence is absent. Peace is not just the absence of war or violence, but peace is the absence of conflicts, and all conflicts are not violent.
We all must as Peacekeepers eliminate these conflicts so that we can together to create an environment of peace.

The owners of No Grease Knights of the Razor Barbershop, a Black barbershop in SouthPark Mall, finally heard from mall management.
SouthPark Mall management sent WBTV this statement:
“We are pleased to report that Knights of the Razor by No Grease will be staying at SouthPark for the duration of their temporary lease. We have delayed our other deal until next year and will be discussing with Mr. Damian Johnson and Mr. Jermaine Johnson the possibility of a permanent location for their barbershop beyond their current temporary lease term. Our other 4 locations with No Grease are all permanent leases. We’ve enjoyed a productive and growing relationship with No Grease for the past decade and look forward to expanding our relationship in the future.”
Kirk Franklin and his son must come together
An ugly family exchange was thrust into public view Saturday when Kirk Franklin’s estranged son published audio of the gospel legend berating him in a profanity-laden phone call that ends with his father screaming, “I will break your neck. Don’t you ever disrespect me.”
The elder Franklin, 51, is a beloved and influential figure in the gospel music world and is widely credited with popularizing modern gospel in the mainstream. He posted an apology to his fans later that night that drew even more attention — and polarized reactions — to the rancorous father-son exchange. By Sunday, “Kirk Franklin” was a Twitter trending topic.
Kerrion Franklin, 32, posted a clip of the exchange on Instagram on Saturday and included a caption that said he doesn’t feel safe around his father. “I don’t think I’ll ever trust my father to be alone around him ever again,” he wrote.
George Floyd's Uncle Selwyn Jones speaks as jury selection begins
On this episode George Floyds Slwyn Jones speaks to us.
Selwyn Jones’ nephew, George Floyd, died in police custody Monday in Minneapolis after an officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes while Floyd laid handcuffed on the street.
A bystander video shows that Floyd yelled out multiple times that he couldn’t breathe, and the footage sparked national protest, including a demonstration set in Rapid City which Jones plans to attend this weekend.
The four officers involved in the case have been fired as the incident remains under investigation by the FBI and state law enforcement. Derek Chauvin, the officer shown in the video kneeling on Floyd's neck, was charged Friday with third degree murder.
“It’s pretty bad when you wake up and see (that) video in the news,” said Jones, a 54-year-old man from Gettysburg, South Dakota. “I’m thinking, 'Wow, not again.' Then my wife looks at me and says, 'You know who that is?'”First Challenge in George Floyd Murder Trial: Finding an Impartial Jury
Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Monday in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged in connection with Mr. Floyd’s death.
Jury selection is set to begin on Monday, in a courtroom built to comply with pandemic protocols and outfitted with television cameras. Mr. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Before his trial begins, he could face an additional charge of third-degree murder, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled on Friday, in a decision that could delay the start of jury selection because Mr. Chauvin has the option to appeal.
