A noose found in the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C....a racist slur painted on the home of NBA superstar Lebron James...two men fatally stabbed after they intervened when an Oregon man yelled racist slurs at two Muslim women while on a train in Portland...just three examples of what racism looks like in 2017.  On the next Another View Round Table our pundits discuss this and other current events.  Join Hampton University history professor Dr. Eric Claville; talk show host Wil LaVeist; community activist Bill Thomas, and political science professor, Carol Pretlow for the next Another View Round Table, Friday, June 9 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

The National Urban League just released its 2017 State of Black America Report and the clarion call is to "protect our progress".  The report sounds the alarm about the Trump administration's shift of funding away from the Departments of Health, Education, Housing and Labor to military funding; the call from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review consent decrees where policing patterns revealed ingrained racial bias, systemic civil rights violations and the regular use of excessive force; and the social cancer of hate that continues to permeate our public discourse.  On the next Another View we'll talk about this new report, as well as efforts to defund historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Journalist, author and talk show host Wil LaVeist; community activist Bill Thomas, NSU professor Carol Pretlow and guest pundit Dr. Eric Claville of Hampton University join us for the next Another View Round Table, Friday, May 12 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

Members of the Trump administration have made statements about Black history that are completely false, such as Ben Carson asserting that slaves from Africa were immigrants, and Betsy DeVos calling HBCU's "pioneers of choice".  On the next Another View Round Table we'll talk about the danger of leadership in this country engaging in revisionist history.  Join our Round Table Pundits - Roger Chesley, Columnist for the Virginian-Pilot; Carol Pretlow, Professor of Political Science with Norfolk State University; Bill Thomas, Community Activist; and Wil LaVeist, Author, Journalist and Talk Show Host - on the next Another View, Friday, March 10 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!

It's been less than 30 days since Donald Trump became President, and in that time people the world over have taken to the streets in protest of his ban on Muslims entering the United States and the courts are now involved; the Administration has taken on mainstream media and presented "alternative facts" to support the President's initiatives; many in both political parties have expressed concern over Steve Bannon's role with national security; and Mr. Trump seemed to suggest that Frederick Douglass is still alive during his speech about Black HIstory Month.  Lots of fodder for the Another View Round Table - Roger Chesley, Columnist with the Virginian-Pilot; Carol Pretlow, Political Science Professor with NSU; Bill Thomas, Community Activist; and Wil LaVeist, Author, Journalist and Talk Show Host.  Intelligent conversation about today's current events on the next Another View, Friday, February 10, 2017 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
