After attending a few teen slams, Tammie Williams, Girls (Providing Resources for Improvement Dignity Empowerment) PRIDE Project spoke with Michael Corelli, Executive Director of Urban Word NYC and both agreed to bring the writing workshops to Queens and Long Island. “Some teens have a hard time speaking to adults about what they are going through in life”, says Ms. Williams. “We want teens to be able to put their thoughts down on paper instead of keeping it bottled up inside”. The African Center for Community Empowerment Girls PRIDE ProjectDirector Tammie Williams is proud to bring the inspiring teen poetry slam to Queens and Long Island. –Tammie Williams, Girls PRIDE Project Director.

Is Religion A Force For Good In The World?

"In a world of globalization and rapid social change does religion provide the common values and ethical foundations that diverse societies need to thrive in the 21st century? Or, do deeply held religious beliefs promote intolerance, exacerbate ethnic divisions, and impede social progress in developing and developed nations alike? To encourage a far-ranging discussion on one of human kind’s most vexing questions, the 6th semi-annual Munk Debate will tackle the resolution: be it resolved, religion is a force for good in the world" Munk Debates.  Munk Debates is a site well worth the membership fee of $10.00 - Join.  

Stephen Fry says "Amost as many words have been written about Christopher Hitchens since he died as he would write in a typical working week. He was one of very, very few people on earth whom I would have missed just as much had I never had the pleasure and fortune of knowing him. He lit fires in people’s minds. He was an educator."
