Author Charis Brown Malloy comes to Sunday Morning Live from Pennsylvania. Born and raised in California, she and her family moved to VA, then CA and bow back to PA where her husband’s family is located.

A life coach and wholistic living healer, this book began writing Charis maybe six months ago. It tackles her encounters with extraterrestrial beings and a whole lot more. If you, too, have had similar experiences, you are not alone!

Darlene Donloe’s

Blues legend Bobby “Blue” Bland interviewed by Dr. Kwaku
When Dr.Kwaku got the confirmation to come and interview blues legend Bobby Blue Bland, he headed over to Hollywood Park.  When he got there he was asked to do it after the performance, which he was able to absorb with friends he did not know would be there. Afterwards, they retired to his tour bus (He does not like to fly–in the air anyway).  This Sunday he will share this interview with our Sunday Morning Live audience, and we thank him!  Black Music Month continues…

MORE ON OUR GUESTS:

Jarim Person-Lynn, Author, Brass Knuckle Finance

Jarim Person-Lynn, a Wealth Coach in the Los Angeles area, knows all too well how the trappings of debt and poverty can derail the dreams of the inner city youth. Growing up submerged in the flossy and flashy L.A. culture through the late 90s/early 2000s and taught to buy first then think about how to pay for it later, he found himself ultimately working day and night to pay off someone else’s life. After a few false starts and partial escapes from old ways of thinking, Jarim got completely fed up with his situation in 2009 and vowed to eliminate the “Keeping up with the Joneses” status quo that had tried to claim him and so many of his friends both financially and emotionally.
Beginning with free one-on-one financial consultations with thousands of minorities in L.A., he would go on to put together a 5 course guide filled with everything he had learned working with and getting so many minorities out of debt. Now with a clothing line that supports his signature message of “Buy Less, Live More. Screw the Joneses” along with the introduction of free weekly financial classes in community centers in and around Los Angeles, the only thing standing in his way is the very mentality of every person he is attempting to save. This time, however, its war.
Synopsis of the book:  Brass Knuckle Finance

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. It’s high time that we as a people got fed up. Ballerific, no regard for your future, throw your money away mentalities have been encouraged and allowed to prosper for far too long in our community. We have well known minority leaders in politics, health & fitness, religion, entertainment and everything else under the sun but when it comes to finance, we’re basically lost in the sauce. Sure there are those like Dave Ramsey and Suze Orman who have been trying to include our community in their approach for years but their messages have pretty much gone on deaf ears since day one. Well today, it’s time to step it up a notch.

Brass Knuckle Finance, written by Jarim Person-Lynn, consists of the following 5 course program that promises to not only change the way you view money but change the way you view yourself:
Course 1: You are a Slave, Neo (how your mentality environment and health affect your wealth) 
Course 2: The True art of Budgeting & Spending  
Course 3: Getting out of Debt & Staying out of Debt 
Course 4: College, Entrepreneurship & Income 
Course 5: Investing & Eliminating the Cycle of Poverty 
Please don’t think that this is going to be a walk in the park though. Should you follow each one of the courses here exactly how they are outlined, while at the same time practicing great discipline in order to change your life, you will become wealthy. The only question is “how soon?”
Jarim’s financial autobiography: http://thisiswhyubroke.wordpress.com/about-2/

The Autobiography of J.P. Lynn (aka ManAgainstDebt)

Ok, I’ll try and keep this as short and sweet as possible. For those that dont, sit back and grab a drink or something. lol At any rate, like many of you, mine starts in college.

I acted a damn fool in college and a Cal State was a f*cking joke to me.

The year was 1998 and from the first time I set foot on campus, I knew my plans had nothing to do with graduating. I was there to do something else. I wasnt sure what yet, but I knew it involved making lots and lots of money. This was perfect. I figured I could do this and at the same time have my loans & Read the rest of J.P. Lynn’s financial autobiography HERE

Atty. Michelle Alexander: Michelle Alexander at Riverside: New Jim Crow convict under-caste

Legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues persuasively we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it. Jim Crow and legal racial segregation has been replaced by mass incarceration as a system of social control. —More African Americans are under correctional control today than were enslaved in 1850— Alexander reviews American racistl history from the colonies to the Clinton administration, delineating its deliberate transformation into the war on drugs. She provides analysis of the effect of this mass incarceration upon former inmates who will be discriminated against, legally, for the rest of their lives, denied employment, housing, education, and public benefits. Most provocatively, she reveals how both the move toward colorblindness and affirmative action may blur our vision of injustice. She spoke at Riverside Church in Manhattan May 21, 2011.

Michelle Alexander is a longtime civil rights advocate and litigator. She won a 2005 Soros Justice Fellowship and now holds a joint appointment at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Mortiz College of Law at Ohio State University. Alexander served for several years as director of the Racial Justice Project at the ACLU of Northern California, and subsequently directed the Civil Rights Clinics at Stanford Law School, where she was an associate professor. Alexander is a former law clerk for Justice Harry Blackmun on the U.S. Supreme Court, and has appeared as a commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and NPR. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness is her first book. Audio: Riverside Church, Camera: Joe Friendly

 Dr. Kwaku Person-Lynn

Known for his way with students, Kwaku Person-Lynn is a native of Los Angeles, a husband, father of five sons and a grandfather of two. Professionally, he is an historian, musicologist, educator, author, filmmaker, and radio producer.

He has published two books (e.g., First Word: Black Scholars, Thinkers, Warriors: Knowledge, Wisdom, Mental Liberation. New York: Harlem River Press, 1996; On My Journey Now; The Narrative of Dr. John Henrik Clarke. Northridge, CA: California State University, Northridge Department of Pan African Studies special edition of The Journal of Pan African Studies) and is currently working on a third (expected soon). A future book will compile his over 200 articles, essays and book chapters. In the early 1980s, his dissertation chapter “Rap Music – Afrikan Music Renaissance” was the first scholarly publication on rap/hip hop and has been published in several books and on the Internet.

In the early 1970s, Dr. Kwaku was a record producer for A&M Records, the first Black recording engineer at the company, and only one of four Black record executives in the country. He was also founder of the Malcolm X Center in Los Angeles. He received his bachelor degree from California State University, Dominguez Hills, his master and doctorate from UCLA, being the first person of Afrikan descent in the history of UCLA to graduate from the Individual Ph.D. Program, requiring two majors (Afrikan World History and African World Music, and a minor in anthropology).

Black History 4 Young People (Summers)

Let’s Meet Tevin Campbell!

Tevin's alive and well and Darlene interviews him!

From Wikipedia:  Born in Waxahachie, Texas,Tevin Campbell by the age of four, had a passion for singing. Likened to such greats as Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, Campbell began by singing gospel, first as a choir member, and then as a soloist at Jacob’s Chapel in a small town just south of Dallas, Texas. Apart from his favorite singer, Aretha Franklin, his greatest influence as a child was probably his mother, Rhonda Byrd. Then a postal worker, she was known to the Texas congregation as “little Aretha.”

As Campbell told Dennis Hunt of the Los Angeles Times, “[My mother] pushed me and made me see trying to be a big solo singer was something I should do. Without her pushing, I’d still be in the background. To some extent, that’s what happened to her. She has a good singing voice that she never fully developed. I guess nobody pushed her to get ahead. She didn’t want to see me waste my talent too. When I was younger I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but she knew what was best for me, and I went along with it.” Rhonda went on to become Tevin’s co-manager.

In 1988, a friend of Campbell’s mother arranged for the budding young singer to audition for jazz flutist Bobbie Humphrey (Read More)

Meet Qasim “Q” Basir Director of Mooz-Lum

About Qasim Basir

Mooz-lum director Qasim "Q" Basir

Qasim “Q” Basir has been taking the movie industry by storm for years now, but it wasn’t always about the movies. He was planning on a career in law until he flew through the window of a car during a traffic accident in 2002. He said that while  recovering from his injuries, “I decided I needed to do what I loved, and make a difference while doing so.” That was making movies.

After completing his first project, 1Nation 2Worlds, he began doing just that. He took the film to Colleges and Universities all over the country, challenging students and professors to open discussions on the important issue of race. “I feel like ignorance is one of the most significant issues hindering our society today,” says Qasim. His next film, award winning short “Glimpse,” dealt with a different subject but had the same idea, erasing ignorance. But this time, as it deals with Muslims in America. Next Qasim went on to create a short film series aimed at supporting Presidential candidate

Available on DVD soon!

Barack Obama. The series, Th Inspiration of Barack: “Yes We Can” Film Series, is a compilation of seven short films all dealing with different people who become inspired by Obama to take essential steps forward in their lives. Similar to 1Nation 2Worlds, he took the series to theaters around the country, urging attendees to get involved with the Obama campaign. “My whole purpose is to help change the world. Obama getting in office will be a huge step in that direction.” Because of his work on this series, Qasim recently received the “Inspirational Filmmaker of the Year” award from the Memphis Black Writers Film Festival.  The series can now be found in Blockbuster video & iTunes.com.

More recently, Qasim has refocused his attention to his next feature film “MOOZ-lum”, starring Evan Ross, Nia Long, Danny Glover, Roger Guenveur Smith, Summer Bishil & Dorian Missick.
