Young African American men dying at the hands of white police officers. White police officers gunned down by African American men. Protests in the streets - the rallying cry, "Black Lives Matter"! Opinion polls stating the racial divide in America is growing. With this social unrest as the backdrop, Another View, along with our partners, the Virginia Wesleyan College Center for Religious Studies, and the Fort Monroe Foundation, will launch a new community initiative called "Race: Let's Talk About It". On the next Another View, we will talk about the initiative and our goal to provide a safe space to hold honest and open conversation about race that moves from emotion to true understanding. Our guests this week include Michele Woods-Jones, Hampton Unity Commission; Jonathan Zur, Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities; Kelly Jackson, Virginia Wesleyan College Center for the Study of Religious Freedom, Glenn Oder, Fort Monroe Authority and Eric Claville, Hampton University.

Another View has been nominated for a "Salute to Excellence" award by the National Association of Black Journalists for our show "African American Women Going Natural". This program, which originally aired on September 6, 2014, focused on the social, political, emotional and physical issues African American women face when they make the decision to go "natural". Our guests who discussed the natural hair movement included Rosalynne Whitaker-Heck, founder of MANE Event, which stands for My Authentically Natural Evolution; Jennifer Heck Cole who shared her personal story of going natural; NSU poltical science professor Carol Pretlow; journalist, author and talk show host, Wil LaVeist; and award-winning photographer Jason Johnson. We thought it would be fun to bring you this program while we are in Minneapolis at the award ceremony and hopefully we will come home the first place winner. Wish us luck...and tune in for an encore presentation of Another View this Friday, August 7 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM.
