8.8.2023 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Alabama's Riverfront Rumble, HBUCs & Mental Health, Ne-Yo & Gender Identity, Florida's PragerU
Louisiana Congressman Troy A. Carter, Sr. met presidents and stakeholders from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to discuss what they can do for Black students' mental health. He'll be here to explain how they plan to reduce isolation, improve campus safety, and increase access to healthcare providers for our students.
Montgomery, Alabama, Police have arrest warrants for three men involved in Saturday night's melee in Riverwalk Park. Mayor Steven L. Reed will be here to give us the latest.
We discussed PragerU, the unaccredited right-wing group that will be used in some Florida schools. One of those lessons shows Frederick Douglass saying the U.S. founding fathers had to "compromise" on slavery and urging kids to work within the system.
And Ne-Yo is getting flack for criticizing parents supporting their children in deciding their gender identity at an early age. I'll share my thoughts on this.
