Simone Manuel is the first African American woman to win gold in the 100-meter freestyle competition during the Rio Olympics.  Her win shatters the myth that African Americans cannot swim.  There is a historical reason behind the lack of black swimmers and we'll talk about it on the next Another View.  Our guests include historian Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander, psychologist Dr. Angela Jones, and Leslie Paul, creator of RAPS - Really Awesome People Swimming - a program designed to teach African American children how to swim.  Join us for the next Another View on Health featuring cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby as co-host, Friday, August 26 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!

"The year 1619 is a landmark for the United States and especially for Virginia.  Three cultures - American Indian, English and African - began forging the seeds of democracy, diversity and opportunity." That quote comes from Senator Thomas K. Norment, Jr., co-chair of the 2019 Commemoration.  The official launch of  "American Evolution Virginia to America 1619-2019" begins this weekend with the commemoration of African Arrival Day at Fort Monroe in Hampton.

Another View will be LIVE from the Gazebo at Fort Monroe on Friday, August 19 at noon and you are invited to attend!  Come watch us live as we discuss the history of the landing of the first Africans to English America and the significance of that landing at Fort Monroe. Our guests include Glenn Oder, Executive Director, Fort Monroe Authority; Terry Brown, new Superintendent of the Fort Monroe National Monument; Tina Rollins, Director of the Hampton University Library; and Vanessa Thaxton-Ward, Director of the Hampton University Museum.  

Bring a lawn chair as seating is limited.  Wear comfortable shoes as it's a bit of a walk to the Gazebo. Plan to arrive no later than 11:45 am. It's FREE and we would love to have you in our audience!

The Another View Crew is traveling this week! Our delve into political discussions has netted "The Claville Report" a Salute to Excellence nomination from the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ.) So, we thought it the perfect time to bring you an encore edition of one of our most talked about Another View programs. Given the current climate and on going discussions surrounding race relations between the police and the communities they serve, we're bringing you a program we named "The Talk: A Police Perspective." Law Enforcement officers, black and white, share what they tell their own children when interacting with police, their thoughts about how they're perceived  and offer their best advice for staying safe if you're stopped by police. Join Chief Michael Goldsmith, Norfolk Police Department, Chief Kelvin Wright, Chesapeake Police Department, Chief Cedric Alexander, President, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) and Lieutenant Daniel Edwards, Durham, NC Police Department.  Joins us for an encore presentation of this healing conversation about race and law enforcement on the next Another View, Friday, August 5th at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
