This is an inspiring story of a few teens who got tired of constantly seeing the negative stereotypes that the media has a habit of attributing to young, black males so they decided to do something about it! Check it out below…
I sent the video below to my siblings and a few friends. One of my younger brothers emailed the following comment.
Thanks for the video. I reckon that this is how Ronald [our oldest brother] felt by the time mom had 5 girls in a row. ... ! ha ! ha ! See his reaction in the photo above!
Lookout Pharrell, these young students rocked your song!
Now if only we can get our global political leaders to sing this song. IJS
There should be a movie made about this elegant lady - Mrs. Gwen Wood. This photo was taken of her only a few weeks ago - a few months shy of her 105th birthday in June.
I met Mrs. Wood when I was a graduate student at Harvard. Over the years I learned a lot from her. I used to jokingly tell her that she needs to bottle her longevity secrets and sell them to the rest of us mere mortals.
So long my friend!
I saw this on one of my cousins' facebook wall.
From now on, this is my story and I'm sticking to it!
A documentary about the health and longevity of Okinawa - and a warning of the health dangers posed by modern 'American lifestyles'.
"War" is a counterculture era soul song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for the Motown label in 1969. Whitfield first produced the song – a blatant anti-Vietnam War protest – with The Temptations as the original vocalists. After Motown began receiving repeated requests to release "War" as a single, Whitfield re-recorded the song with Edwin Starr as the vocalist, with the label deciding to withhold the Temptations' version from single release so as not to alienate their more conservative fans. Starr's version of "War" was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970, and is not only the most successful and well-known record of his career, but is also one of the most popular protest songsever recorded.
