America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the fourth installment of the series. Joined by the forever insightful/ever knowledgeable Dr. Keila Foster, we discuss episode 4, "There’s Nothing Funny about Race," of the America to Me series. We discuss the purple elephant in the room as Jada and Charles handle Mr. Podolner lightheartedness toward race in his physics class. That discussion entails making student connections, white privilege, the importance of teaching life lessons, the importance of being able to “read the room,” and much more. ————————————————— PSA — Thanks to Participant’s America to Me: Real Talk campaign, you can watch the America to Me docuseries and access the “Real Talk” guide for free.

Memphis, Tennessee—Originally published in late 2017 for my original podcast, The 3 Bearded Kings Podcast, this episode is more fitting now than ever before. This episode will feel more like an audio-documentary than anything else. I pray listeners of this podcast don't take my silence on current events, notably police brutality, racism, and protests, as acrimony. Although the purpose of this show isn't politics, it would be rather asinine to assume that as a Black man, Black son, Black father, Black brother, Black nephew, Black cousin, Black friend, Black author, Black podcaster, and Black educator that I do not recognize the correlation between our issues in the classroom and society. This company, Black Scholars Publishing, will always produce content with a purpose. This episode epitomizes that.  ————————————————— Shop Black Scholars Clothing™ with promo code SCHOLARS for 20 percent off.

In the second installment of this series, it's been almost a year since I released a Moment of Clarity episode (go back to episode 25, "Social Media Usage for Black Educators"). The purpose behind the Moment of Clarity series is to provide a sincere, transparent look into my own life and to discuss real life issues outside of the classroom. It's uncommon. It's unorthodox. It's a liberal creative choice in a cookie-cutter content era specifically for educational podcasts. I believe it's important that we, Black educators, discuss real issues. After all, we are actual human beings with a litany of personal problems. Hopefully, this episode helps someone who is experiencing heartbreak. And heartbreak hits us all differently, and it comes from various places: a romantic relationship ending, a loved one dying, a business closing, or a friendship weakening. If this episodes helps you, please contact me and let me know.    Support the show: Subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play, or Spotify.

I first discovered Candous Brown, a 11-year-veteran, via Facebook. She was featured on the Chalkbeat Tennessee, an educational news publication. After reading the feature, I immediately reached out to Candous via Facebook, and I am glad that I did. Here are a few takeaways from this interview: 1) Candous is an effective educator, because she thinks outside of the box. 2) Candous is a graduate of Christian Brothers University (I was just accepted into Christian Brothers’s Educational Leadership program), so we are fellow Buccaneers. 3) Candous, similar to myself, did not begin her teaching career through a traditional TEP. 4) Candous is a reflective educator—a key to instructional effectiveness. I hope you enjoy the show. Follow me on Instagram or Facebook. Also, my book, Becoming an Effective Black Educator: A Manifesto, is available here. Also, check out Candous’s book on Amazon.
