Dick Gregory
Mr Gregory is a very interesting man. He ran for President in 1968 as a write in candidate. This was the same year Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed. I think Mr Gregory was the first to get people to even think about a Black man being president. He has been fighting for social change for many years. At 80 years old he is still an advocate for change and truth. I'm sure Dick Gregory will have his place in history.

email blast!

We celebrate the achievements of Black people or
African Americans in the United States of America and
the world. Also featuring current entrepreneurs, professionals, and leaders.
It is important to me to show our positive contributions
which are often left out of traditional history books and
not focused on in main stream media. 

I'd like to also use the show as a platform to discuss racial issues, myths, disparities, and stereotypes among the American Blacks and Whites in an effort to promote better understanding and reconciliation.
I think it's time for truth and transparency. What do you think?

My goal is to have an audience of Black and White
Americans, but I welcome global viewers and input.  


The United States of America is the greatest country in the world. It's so important to have freedom of speech and expression. I hope my show can be a positive tool for change.
Ain't nothing wrong with having a little fun along the way....

Live TV show launch coming soon! Keep watching...

Rashida I'm so proud of you!!!
How do you like Rashida (Rah-she-da) Jolley?

South Africa Academy graduates first class. Great job Oprah!!
I really admire and respect Oprah Winfrey for working to make the world a better place at home and abroad.
What have you done to make your community or the world better?

Maybe racism starts with what we teach our children. Is it possible for us all to unify as Americans? I sure hope so. Divided we can be conquered and I sure wouldn't want to be taken over by the Chinese... they already almost own us.
Watch this CNN story.
What do you teach your children about race?

An American business classic by Napoleon Hill. Definately worth listening to especially if you've never read the book.
Let us know how you liked it.

Chicago's Urban Prep High School graduated 100 percent of their students for the third year in a row. These young Black men have also been accepted to colleges and universities.
Urban Prep should  be a model for the rest of the country!.
I salute and commend all the administrators, faculty, and other professionals for this monumental accomplishment.
Proof that it can be done. What do you say?

Tribute to Black Inventors..Did you know  Black men invented the cell phone and personal computer?.My mother retired after working 35 years at The U.S Patent and Trademark Office. She died some years ago but her spirit lives on in me to promote the many contributions that Black people have made to the United States of America. I'm working on several projects on this subject and just wanted to share the tip of the iceberg with you.
Are you an inventor with a new product and need it promoted?

A hip hop tribute.All rap is not nonsense but can be used as an effective educational tool for young people. Check this out.

Did you know that Black women made important contributions for the United States of America in World War II? Or did you even know that there were Black women including officers serving in the 1940's?
Are any of these women your relatives? Did you have any family members that served in this time period?

Martin Luther King, Jr's historic "I Have a Dream" speech. I was surprised to know that some Americans have never heard this speech, so I thought I'd air it on the show. If you notice on the tape there were Whites marching with him and some supporters in the crowd. I think he was good at bringing Blacks and Whites together.
It's amazing almost 50 years after this speech and some of the same racism is still going on. I felt good when I watched the Democratic Convention and saw all those Black and White people together voting for a Black man because of the "content of his character" and intelligence
I have hope for the future but I don't know whether White men in particular really believe that all men are created equal.
Will there ever be full equality for Black people in America?What do you think?
Lets talk about it on James Monroe Show.
Send us an email: producers@jamesmonroeshow.com

Discriminating against Black students who excel is a growing trend in racism. Even some Whites find this appalling.
Watch this TYT Network special.
Lets work together to make sure  these practises don't continue.
email your comments or solutions.

Anthony Robbins is a good motivational speaker
It may not be that you have the wrong plan it just needs to be tweaked..
Let us know if this helped you out.

Want to make money in the international market? In this video are some of the top countries you can sell your products or services to. There are 53 African countries including islands. It would be good for African-Americans to form better business relationships and import /export goods in these markets too. The Continent of Africa is the second largest with 12 million square miles in total. The estimated population of Africa is 1 billion. Asia is the largest continent with an estimated 4 billion people.
Are you Black or African American with a successful business overseas or desire to take your business global?

I don't agree with everything Minister Louis Farrakhan says, but then again I don't agree with everything any of them say, but I do agree with him on this point...Watch the video.
Bishop Eddie Long has done a lot of positive things for the Black  community and holding this event is one of them.
I hope to have Mr Long on the live show to talk about other good things he has done to help people which I understand has been a lot!
We welcome your comments.
