Street justice, lawlessness, drugs, jail time...the rhythm of life for many African American and Latino young men. Many never find their way out - but some are able to turn the tragedy of their lives into living triumphantly! On the next Another View we'll talk with three young men who have done just that - they've moved from the streets into a legitimate life, including entrepreneurship and ministry. Alan Upshur, Manny Rivera, Jr., and Melvin Cotton share their personal stories and give their perspectives on being young men of color in America. Join us for the next Another View, Friday, December 19 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Bill Cosby...all African American and all in the spotlight because of violence. The recent killings of Brown, Garner and Rice have forced this nation into dialogues about the intersection between race and the police. And opinions run the gamut about "America's Favorite Dad", and if in fact Bill Cosby is guilty of rape as accused. But what happens once the marches stop and Cosby is no longer in the spotlight? Will things change in America for African American men? We'll talk about it with the Another View Round Table: Roger Chesley, columnist for the Virginian-Pilot; NSU political science professor Carol Pretlow; community activist Bill Thomas; and author, journalist and talk show host Wil LaVeist.

The Another View crew will enjoy some time off to celebrate with family and friends, so we will not be with you this Friday, November 28. Instead, please enjoy the program "Giving Thanks, A Celebration of Fall, Food and Gratitude". You will hear a Thanksgiving blessing from the late Dr. Maya Angelou, and Nikki Giovanni shares some food poems along with other Thanksgiving memories. We will be back next Friday, December 5 at noon for the next edition of Another View. From all of us to all of you - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
The perception is that college binge drinking is a "white college issue" and not really of concern at historically black colleges and universities (HBCU)...but the truth is binge drinking is problematic no matter the racial makeup of the student population. According to a study of student behavior by the Century Council, 54% of full-time HBCU students who drink engage in binge drinking, compared to 64% of students at predominately white schools. The difference is in the way the binge drinking occurs. On the next Another View on Health, we'll explore the dangers of binge drinking with guest host, cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby, and emergency room physician Dr. Clarence Clarke.
