Why Black Love Should Be Celebrated

Black love should be celebrated for several reasons. Firstly, it represents the resilience and strength of the black community in the face of historical oppression, systemic racism, and discrimination. Celebrating black love is a way to acknowledge and honor the ways in which black individuals and couples have overcome obstacles and persevered in their relationships.

Secondly, celebrating black love is important because it helps to combat negative stereotypes and tropes about black relationships perpetuated in the media. Black love is often portrayed as dysfunctional, violent, or hypersexualized in popular culture, which can have a damaging impact on the self-esteem and mental health of black individuals. By celebrating black love, we can challenge these harmful narratives and showcase the beauty and complexity of black relationships.

Finally, celebrating black love is a way to promote healing and unity within the black community. Love is a powerful force that can bring people together and create a sense of belonging and connection. By celebrating black love, we can foster a sense of community and support among black individuals and couples, which can have a positive impact on mental health and well-being.

Those are three of the reasons why Refocused & Reform Radio Talk Show will focus the third, upcoming season on celebrating highlighting Black Love.

The show’s founder, Dr. Angela K. Chambers took to her Facebook page to send out an open invitation to black couples who are willing and open. To appear as guest on upcoming broadcasts.

Couples are encouraged to reach out via email to: programming@thegreenwoodbeat.com Subject line: Black Love to get scheduled for an appearance on the show

The show broadcasts on the first black, women-owned radio station in Oklahoma and is located in the Historic Greenwood Avenue a/k/a The Original Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

In conclusion, celebrating black love is important because it acknowledges the resilience and strength of the black community, challenges harmful stereotypes, and promotes healing and unity.

New Owasso High School Football Coach Makes History

A New Era Begins

With the arrival of the new head coach, the Owasso Rams are entering a new era of football. The new head coach, Antonio Graham, comes with an impressive track record and a wealth of experience and is the first African-American head coach to ever lead the program. Having previously coached successful teams at both the high school and collegiate levels, the new coach brings a winning mentality and a strategic approach to the game.

One of the key aspects that sets this new coach apart is their commitment to refocusing the team’s priorities. While winning is undoubtedly important, the coach emphasizes the development of well-rounded student-athletes who excel both on and off the field. This holistic approach aims to instill values such as discipline, teamwork, and perseverance in the players, ensuring their success not just in football but in life as well.

A Fresh Perspective

With a new coach comes a fresh perspective on the game. The Owasso Rams can expect innovative strategies and a modern approach to training and gameplay.

By sponsoring the team and providing resources, they are investing in the future of not only the players but also the town itself.

In 2023, it is still a big deal that African-Americans breaking through barriers for the first time. Kudos to Owasso administration, school Superintended Margaret Coates, who was present to welcome and support those in attendance as well as the coach.

Coach Graham, in his short speech, described his stress was not coming from being behind a great coach but realized that even after overcoming so much in his personal life, his stress comes from knowing that he cannot afford to make big mistakes. He understands being the oldest child of six that his siblings are looking up to him. His son and daughter are also looking up to him. He thanked his family and all of those who were present in his life and kept him on the right track.

Uncovering Injustices in Oklahoma: The Conversation Continues

The internet was buzzing yesterday as many watched various live streaming videos from those attending the event at the Oklahoma State Capitol. Our Chief Operating Officer (COO) and host of the Refocused and Informed Radio Talk Show, Dr. Francetta L. Mays, was present at the event. She, along with others who have been on the frontlines fighting for justice and reform in Oklahoma, witnessed the Wooley family’s struggle for justice.

The justice system failed the Wooley family, and those in power were allowed to get away with cover-ups and misdeeds for far too long. Power is being misused, and it is up to the public to get involved. We must support those who are fighting for the rights and fair treatment of others.

Lawmakers, law enforcement, and those working in the public service industry must be held to a high standard and be held accountable for their actions. The uncovering of injustices in Oklahoma is just the beginning of a larger conversation that needs to take place.

Join us today for the Refocused and Informed Radio Talk Show, where Dr. Angela K. Chambers and Dr. Francetta L. Mays will delve deeper into the issues surrounding the Wooley case and the broader implications for justice and reform in Oklahoma. This is an opportunity to stay informed and be part of the conversation.
