OMG!!! I haven't read any of Dr. Billingsley's work ... so I'm gonna run to the book store and purchase one of his books - quick, fast, and in a hurry. LOL!

What catches my eye is - Black Families in White America & Mighty Like a River.

Isn't this exciting people????? Smile
Very exciting!!! I'll be at work though and our net admin doesn't allow streaming. Frown So, I'll have to pick up the archive when I get home.

I wish you much success. I love it when Blacks and tech get together. LOVE IT!!!
Dr. Andrew Billingsley



Dr. Billingsley (Author, MIGHTY LIKE A RIVER): The whole slave system was hostile toward black expressions, including black religious expressions. But Lisle was an unusual person, didn't do it easily. He tried all sorts of ways to express himself, and he was successful in doing so and getting other people to follow him. *snip*

Dr. Billingsley: I suppose whites knew that religion, spirituality, worship service moved the slaves beyond their control; it put them in touch with God and with the universe. And so they were worried about this connection. They wanted the slaves to come through them for all of their connections; they didn't want them to go directly to God for any kind of encouragement, advice, or guidance.*snip*
This sounds absolutely great! This discussion should be very interesting. I know that I'll definitely call in and give my opinion about this issue. Excellent choice of guest, MBM.
Folks - I got a call from Dr. Billingsley and unfortunately he had to postpone our discussion. I've got some other stuff planned that should be equally as dynamic. Either way - I encourage all of you to listen in and those who can call to please do so.

As with AfricanAmerica.org - the site - this radio show will be as successful as we make it! I appreciate your support and will book Billingsley as soon as his schedule permits.

I had a couple of commitments yesterday, so I had to listen to the link afterwards. It sounded great, and I'm very excited about this. Hopefully I can make the next one.
Great show, MBM! tfro

Sorry I missed it! It was very enlightening, great guests, very informative ... and Sandye's advice was invaluable! hug
For this new show we're going to open up the airwaves to anything and everything that's on your minds. Joe and I will toss out a few issues and certainly opine about them, but anything that's on your minds will be fair game. 15
I listened yesterday and it was a really great show MBM....You and Huey were talking about Obama getting Secret Service protection.
For some reason I couldn't listen to it. Frown

I kept getting an error through the Windows Media Player trying to open it up from the link here. When I've listened to shows after the fact, they've opened up with Real Audio! I finally ended up reinstalling my WM Player, I hope it works for next time. Roll Eyes

But then, during a V8 moment, I realized I probably should have tried to open it through Real Audio using the URL to get there?? Would that have worked? Confused

Anyway, I listened to it later that night ... and it was a really excellent show! tfro
