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.

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.

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.

No Grease South Park location will be terminated effective April 1, 2021...Why?
Charlotte, North Carolina... Mr. Damian Johnson was shocked and taken aback to receive a letter from SouthPark Mall, managed by Simon Properties that their lease for their SouthPark location will be terminated effective April 1, 2021.
When asked if he had broken his temporary lease or conducted business unbecoming or inappropriate Mr. Johnson replied, no.

The Creative Mind of Matthew Knowles: How he created a Music Empire
He’s a Music Executive, Public Speaker, Best Selling Author, Professor, Real Estate Developer, Entrepreneur who just received his doctorate degree, CEO of Music World Entertainment and the father of the world’s biggest pop star of our time Beyoncé and daughter Solange.
All of Mathew’s speaking engagements have been canceled for the rest of the year. This is a huge loss for his company Music World Entertainment since most of his revenue comes from these speaking appearances.
Mr. Knowles generates awareness about COVID-19 & the importance of social distancing with new PSA video that he produced thru his label Music World Entertainment: https://vimeo.com/409994280
Mathew Knowles is best known for managing Destiny’s Child and grooming his daughters Beyoncé and Solange to mega stardom from his indie label Music World Entertainment.
2020 was supposed to be the year of Destiny’s Child’s return but things have now changed due to COVID19. Mathew was planning to produce Survivor: Destiny’s Child The Musical based on the girl group that he famously created & managed. The show was originally scheduled to premiere in their hometown in Houston Texas later in the year followed by a premiere in London and then Broadway but they has all been pushed back til 2021
Mathew’s latest book was released earlier in the year called Destiny’s Child The Untold Story followed by Girls Tyme Unreleased Album. The book is avail now for purchase on mathewknowles.com and album on Amazon.
Mathew was diagnosed with Stage ONE Breast Cancer back in July. He discovered a tiny red dot on his white t-shirt and thought it was nothing but it appeared again which led him to get tested for the BRCA gene. Mathew had a mastectomy and is currently Cancer-Free but is considering to get another mastectomy on his second breast. Mathew decided to go public about his diagnosis to help save lives since most men would never think to get tested for Breast Cancer. Early detection is so important and has saved his life.
Mathew is now happily remarried to former model Gena Avery & has a wonderful relationship with his ex-wife Tina & two daughters and prefers to just be “dad” and “granddaddy” these days.

4 Minneapolis police officers kill black man as one knelt on his neck 8 minutes
An FBI investigation is underway and four officers have been fired following a fatal encounter Monday between Minneapolis police and an unarmed black man.
In a statement early Tuesday, police said the man had a medical incident during an attempted arrest. However, video of the encounter shows an officer with his knee on the man’s neck for at least seven minutes. Before the man loses consciousness, he repeatedly tells officers that he can’t breathe.
Leaders in Minnesota are calling for the officers involved to be held accountable. Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents Minneapolis, called for the Department of Justice to investigate immediately.
“It is sickening to watch this black man be killed while helplessly begging for help,” she said in a statement.
Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan also reacted to the incident, calling the video “disturbing” and demanding justice.
“The lack of humanity in this disturbing video is sickening. We will get answers and seek justice,” Walz said.
Four Minneapolis police officers have been fired following the death of an unarmed black man in police custody Monday night.

Corine Mack NAACP Charlotte on Covid 19 Virus
The number of coronavirus infections closed in on a half-million worldwide Thursday, with both Italy and the U.S. on track to surpass China, and a record-shattering 3.3 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits in a single week in a stark demonstration of the damage to the world's biggest economy.
Health care systems in Europe and New York buckled under the strain, with Spain's death toll climbing to more than 4,000.
In the U.S., an unprecedented $2.2 trillion economic rescue package to help businesses, hospitals and ordinary Americans make it through the crisis cleared the Senate and is expected to be voted on in the House on Friday. The plan would dispense checks of $1,200 per adult and $500 per child.
The Corona Virus and Charlotte NC
NORTH CAROLINA — The number of cases of novel coronavirus, also know as COVID-19, in North Carolina jumped by more than 100 overnight, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.
The news comes hours after Mecklenburg County health officials confirm that as many as a third of the county's 106 cases come from community spread. Community spread means the person came in contact with COVID-19 through unknown means and not through travel or by direct contact with someone who has tested positive.
"Every zip code in our county now has a positive case," Mecklenburg County Manager Dena Diorio said in the town hall Monday. "And what that tells us is we do have community spread." Since health officials are unable to determine the source of the spread, residents must treat every interaction as a potential source of COVID-19 exposure, she said, the Charlotte Observer reported.

A Love letter to my wife
I wanted to write a poem but it ended up being a love letter about my relationship with my wife… I’ve been knowing my wife now for 35 years...we met in 1985 at Shaw University in Raleigh North Carolina… I was 20 years old she was 18 years old from South Plainfield New Jersey and I was a country boy from Goldsboro North Carolina born and raised in rual North Carolina… I remember the first time I saw her I was in the men’s dormitory looking out of the window and suddenly she appeared walking across campus.....one of my best friends at that time was standing with me and when I opened my mouth I said that’s my wife right there..... I’ve never seen her before but I knew that was the woman that would be my wife… Sometimes when we’re together I keep reminding her of how much of a miracle that was that we are here today with a family out of a first time encounter... My son is 17 about to be 18 in March of this year… And I told him I believe the same thing is going to happen to you that happened to me and your mother. I have to tell you there’s nothing like knowing somebody loves you and there’s nothing like growing up together in love with a person that you knew so young... Even though we have had our ups and downs in our marriage but my wife has never ever put me down... when we’ve had a lack of money or circumstances turn dire she always was by my side... I never share anything on my personal side like this but I just felt compelled to do so it may help somebody in their marriage to go back and Fetch the feelings of affection that you had for one another and why you got together in the first place… Don’t give up on each other go back and remember why you started your relationship in the first place and be at peace with each other...
Kobe Bryant dead at 41...Life is short
I’m screaming right now, cursing into the sky, crying into my keyboard, and I don’t care who knows it.
Kobe Bryant is gone, and those are the hardest words I’ve ever had to write for this newspaper, and I still don’t believe them as I’m writing them. I’m still crying, and go ahead, let it out. Don’t be embarrassed, cry with me, weep and wail and shout into the streets, fill a suddenly empty Los Angeles with your pain.
No. No. No, damn it, no!
Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were among nine people who died in a helicopter crash Sunday in Calabasas and how does that happen? Kobe is stronger than any helicopter. He didn’t even need a helicopter. For 20 years he flew into greatness while carrying a breathless city with him.
This can’t be true.
Kobe does not die. Not now. Kobe lives into his golden years, lives long enough to see his statues erected outside Staples Center and his jerseys inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. He lives long enough to sit courtside at Staples when he’s stooped and gray, keeping alive the memories of two decades of greatness with a wink, maybe even fooling everyone one last time by retiring in a community next to Shaq

Black British woman speaks on Prince Harry&Megan
I spoke with a Black woman from London who is vising Charlotte the other day about what black people in great Britan are saying about Prince Harry and Meagan Markle leaving the Royal family...Was it that she could not take the racism anymore? We spoke with Kate Jegede and got an interesting twist that you have never heard.
LONDON — When Prince Harry and Meghan announced this week that they would be stepping back from their royal duties and spending extensive time in North America, many of Britain’s minority residents said they felt a burst of relief.
At long last, many said in interviews, the couple might finally escape the abuse, much of it racially tinged, that has been heaped upon them by the British press, particularly the country’s raucous tabloids.
“Thank God they are free,” said Sanaa Edness, lifting her arms to the sky as she walked through Fordham Park in southeast London. “Nobody should tolerate bullying and abusive behavior because of the color of their skin. All of this is about her race. I know it because as a Caribbean woman who did not grow up here, I have experienced it myself.”

The awkward retirement of Tom Joyner
Teachers are leaving schools by the thousands
According to the Economic Policy Institute by the year 2025, the teacher shortage could reach 200,000.
Our area of expertise is classroom management. New teachers often struggle in this area and with an increased number of students in the classroom, there is a greater risk of classroom disruptions to occur. Current statistics show that new teachers leave at rates of somewhere between 19% and 30% over their first five years of teaching. A recent study by the Learning Policy Institute shows that if a teacher receives mentoring, collaboration, and extra resources, and is part of a strong teacher network, first-year turnover is cut by more than half. Unfortunately, just 3% of beginning teachers receive such support.
The goals are to:
· Provide enough assistance and resources for schools to encourage new teachers to stay past the first three years
· Our assistance and resources will contribute to maintaining or increasing student achievement
· Relieve pressure and stress off teachers and administrators
Our assistance will help teachers to continue to work efficiently... connect with him on linked in www.linkedin.com/in/eric-legette-m-ed-a16b9b10a

Corine Mack of the NAACP gives her analysis of the CMPD 11 minute video released to public yesterday. Can we trust our city officials to do the right thing at this point?
A Mecklenburg County judge on Tuesday ordered the release of the 11 minute-plus video from the body camera of Wende Kerl, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer who shot and killed Danquirs Franklin.
Superior Court Judge Lisa Bell said she will rule later whether CMPD is in contempt of court for withholding video from the scene when Kerl killed Franklin at a west Charlotte Burger King on March 25.
Under a previous court order, CMPD last week publicly released two minutes and 20 seconds of video captured by Kerl’s camera. But CMPD withheld nearly nine minutes of video from the public, employees of three TV stations who petitioned the court for the footage and the judge who ruled the recording should be released.
NAACP President Corine Mack has seen the video and on this episode we hear her analysis
