A hardwood forest sits about 150 feet off the two-lane, rolling road, continuing to Doctors Creek and its wetlands. Across Route 526 is a large corral of the Perretti Farms. The nearest houses sit a half mile to the east and almost a mile to the west.… Continue

I would like to know who is willing to help me get this message in the hands of those who can and will make a diffence in our communities, especially in changing the course of our youth. This message offers our youth the opportunity to see Jesus as one of them. A leader with a posse or crew, who knew what it was like to be… Continue

In her recent blog post titled “Who’s Stealing Little Black Girls?” blogger and human trafficking activist, Amanda Kloer, writes about the problem with child abduction within the African-American community in the United States:
Across America, about 800,000 children are reported missing each year, 33% of which are African-American. In New York City last year, half of reported missing children were black and 60% were female. And these aren't… Continue
Like the lady says, the Insurance companies reaped windfalls under Republicans.
They want to make abortion an issue but again, while they held power they did nothing to reduce or eliminate abortion. Every President, no matter the party had always had HHS fund abortions. While they may have tried to reduce money for abortions overseas, no such thing happened here at home. Lies and… Continue
Besides the outright lie as put forward by Sarah Palin claiming that Section 1233 of the Health Care Reform Bill would set up Death Panels when it in reality it gives doctors an incentive to discuss things like Living Wills and what the individual would like done if they face a end of life situation. Now you have Michael Steele claiming in 2003 that Democrats are at fault as much as Republicans for the funding medicare without budgeting properly. If I remember correctly Mr. Steele, the… Continue
Anybody who claims torture saved American lives are lying. This is about circumventing the law and about the Nazi element in America. Anybody who tries to play down the torture or justify it, is a sick sadistic animal. However, I highly doubt any of these criminals will face prosecution. The CIA has been involved in criminal activities since its… Continue
WHERE IS YOUR FAITH ??
Faith: Is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen(Heb.11:1),
A desire to serve Whole-heartedly, and believing I'm called to serve. I will walk by faith and not by sight.
I'm stepping up as an inspiring Evangelist. I'm training under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, with the teaching and guidance of Min. Dr. LaDonna Blaylock, of Maple Hts., Ohio.
I will be attending the "Faith Summit" revival service in Cleveland,… Continue
With the ongoing negativity and stereotyping of today's black youth, I have founded a positive youth movement called B.E.F.Y., an acronym for black, educated, focused, and young. For the past few weeks I have interviewed and promoted young black professionals, all under age 35, one as young as 23, with advanced college degrees. These guests have overcome odds and accomplished much through education. It is my desire to promote B.E.F.Y. nationally in an effort to encourage, inspire, and call to… Continue
I think one of the great failures of African centered thinkers, a group to whom I used to staunchly belong, is the fact that they are tied to the belief that white people are somehow genetically, inherently predisposed to be oppressors. They somehow believe that only Blacks can transcend the fallacy of white supremacy, they falsely believe that whites are incapable of relinquishing their power and privilege. In the history of the world, the fallacy of white supremacy has only existed for the… Continue

I’m the author of the phenomenal novel “Just a Season” titled from the religious knowledge referring to a period of time characterized by a particular circumstance, suitable to an indefinite period of time associated with a divine phenomenon called life. During this passage through time I have come to realize that there are milestones, mountains, and valleys that we must encounter. This speaks loudly to the challenges of a proud people - African… Continue

Michael Jackson would have turned 51 years old next week on 8/28. Loved by millions, he was undoubtedly one of the world's greatest entertainers. Michael was not as well known as a great humanitarian. Yet, as we look over his donations over the years we find that he gave more of himself and his fortune than any entertainer, living or dead.
On the 28th-29th of August a celebration of his life will take place in Kent,… Continue
New petition posted for the release of innocent teen Devontae Sanford who was sentenced to 30 yrs - 90 yrs for crimes another inmate has confessed. Kym Worthy can end this nightmare for Devontae and his family if she so chooses. Taminko Sanford, Devontae's mother joins us again tonight.
Attorney John L. Burris gives us some details on the shooting death of Amos G. Smith in an exclusive interview. Amos G. Smith was the young man shot in the back of the head by Union City police in March along with 3 other black men in the same area in a span of 27 hours. A video posted to youtube shows a Black Muslim who had just hacked an alleged British soldier to death. He issued a warning to others before being shot by police.
There is a war going on in these streets and as we just celebrated the birthday of Malcolm X, I would hate to know what he would think about the lack of response of our young women and men being killed in these streets by thug ass murderous cops and thug ass murderous criminals in our communities. Children don't feel safe walking to school let alone going to school and yet there has been very little response from the community to meet the security needs. Union City cops shoot a brother 8 times in the back of the head and we ain't heard nothing from the people about it in corporate media.
How do you feel about the NOI bringing in white men from Scientology to teach their members non-African concepts and spirituality? What the hell is going on with them brothers and sisters? After seeing photos of one of these Scientology creeps taking the podium at a NOI meeting, many people are saying WTF!
An article came out today about the Mexican activist whom brother Malcolm Shabazz was with when he was murdered. It may answer some questions about who this man is but it does not answer the questions about what exactly happen that day and many have problems with his version of events.
Tonight revolutionary brother Carl Dix joins the broadcast to inform us about an upcoming event he and Cornel West will be hosting in NYC to stop the maddening mass incarceration going on in the United States.
"Mass Incarceration + Silence = Genocide. Act to STOP it Now!" Monday May 20, 2013, 7:30pm, The Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew 263 W. 86th St (between Broadway and West End Ave), #1 train to 86th, For tickets: 212-691-3345 or online @ http://revolutionbooknyc.org
In 1996, Dix co-founded the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of Generation. Most recently, Dix has been a central figure in the campaign to Stop "Stop and Frisk" aimed at opposing the New York Police Department's efforts to stop hundreds of thousands of people in New York City and frisk them for weapons, drugs or other items. Dix has long addressed questions about imperialist war, revolutionary struggles and the oppression of Black people. Other news out of New York pertaining to the NYPD Gestapo & Frisk campaign against Black people. The newly appointed Black Chief of Department wastes no time in fulfilling his duties as a racially showcased weapon of mass confusion as he goes to a white borough to tell them Gestapo & Frisks is not racial profiling.
Keeping it in NYC, a bronx based Hispanic religious organization shows up to the Gestapo Frisk civil trial to show their support for a suspected racist NYPD Deputy inspector caught on tape telling officers to target Black boys and men.
Conservatives in Congress just won't let Benghazi go and there is talk about impeaching President Obama concerning lies pertaining to a terrorist attack. Hillary Clinton is another one in their sights but again, this is manufactured outrage as well. The answer to why four Americans were killed in Benghazi is very simple, tune in for the answer.
Guatemalan dictator and US ally Efrain Rios Montt was found guilty on charges of genocide against Mayan villagers, some are asking if US officials will be charged in connection to their support of genocide in South America. Ronald Reagan staunchly supported this mass murderer and was complicit in many crimes against humanity.
New information on the killing of Malcolm Shabazz brings more questions and suspicions. Two men have been arrested in the murder of the emerging activist but other activist believe the Mexican labor activist Manuel Suarez had something to do with the murder as his story does not pass the smell test.
Today on May 13, 1985, the City of Philadelphia used its police force to commit an act of terrorism against the Move family by dropping a two pound bomb on their home from a helicopter killing several members of the group including children. The resulting fire destroyed over 60 homes.
Racism is not "accidental" it is conscious activity.
This and probably more tonight on Black Talk Radio News.
Paulette Dauteuil, General Secretary of the Jericho Movement will be joining us tonight on Political Prisoner Radio to update us on the health of several political prisoners being held by the US government.
Many of our comrades who fought for the social/political/human rights of the masses are now fighting to get adequate treatment for their health issues developed in some cases because of the poor conditions under which they are held. In some cases, they are literally fighting for their lives. We will do our best to give you the latest information.
Political captives we hope to update you on are Mutulu Shakur, Norberto Gonzalez, Mondo We Langa and Lynne Stewart.
Bro. Zayid Muhammad of the People's Organization for Progress joins us to discuss several issues related to political prisoners, exiles and the killing of Malcolm Shabazz.
POP is planning another protest at Cineplex 12, Newark’s only major theater which stirred up controversy after it refused to show the new film titled "MUMIA: Long Distance Revolutionary" which focuses on political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal and his contribution as an author and commentator.
We will also get his thoughts on the recent addition of Assata Shakur to the FBI's most wanted "terrorist" list and the erection of the FBI billboards of Assata in Newark.
Finally we discuss the constantly changing stories coming from the media about the killing of Malcolm X's grandson Malcolm Shabazz who was talked into traveling to Mexico by deported Mexican activist Miguel Suarez who many say has holes in his account of what happened.
Join me for Political Prisoner Radio tonight to discuss the breaking news concerning the tragic murder of Malcolm Shabazz, a political and human rights activist and organizer who reportedly was found murdered today in Tijuana, Mexico.
Earlier today I spoke to attorney activist Nkechi Tiafu who shared statements from the NY National Lawyers Guild and The National Conference of Black Lawyers in reference to Assasta Shakur being labeled a "domestic terrorist" by the United States government.
Join me for Political Prisoner Radio tonight with Sis. Pam Africa to discuss corporate and state sponsored environmental terrorism, seedless veggies possibly destroying the seeds in our wombs, the Newark, NJ cancellation of Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary and more.
Before we hear from Sis. Pam Africa, I want to share an important update about Sis. Assata Shakur as the United States government, perhaps angry at the attention Cuba received after Jay-Z and Beyonce visited the island which caused a new generation to question why the United States has a travel ban on the country, the FBI has double its reward for her capture and placed her on its "most wanted terrorists" list possibly making her a target for President Obama's drone assassination program.
There will be no justice for the family of Ramarley Graham unless another indictment against NYPD Officer Richard Haste is issued by another grand jury. Ramarley Graham is a teen who was shot in his grandmother’s bathroom while allegedly trying to flush a small amount of marijuana down the toilet. A Bronx judge tossed the indictment of the officer who shot and killed Graham claiming he had a gun but none was found. Citing mistakes…

“We Want in/Or let the revolution begin” - Various Shades of Black-Rakim
There was a time when Rev. Cleophus Johnson, head of the Negro League of Colored Black People ,Inc could call for a march and thousands of people would show up. So, he was confused when his latest call to integrate BigBubba's Beer and Burger Barn was only answered by a couple of elderly…
The inquiry into the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya by conservatives to this point has been little more than an expression of white supremacy and political theater. What the inquiry is saying is that only "American" lives matter and not the lives of the thousands killed in Libya or those that are still being killed and displaced from their homes due to ethnic cleansing by forces backed by the United States. The…
