Issues That Concern African-americans

By: Nicole Hester-Francis

Within the confines of a culture that embraces a love for 'self' there is a need for an environment where African-Americans can express their growing concerns on such topics as single parenting to politics. Derrick 'Doughboi' Strickland offers such an atmosphere with his Blog Talk Radio Show, as if you were sitting in the confines of his living-room. In short, 'Doughboi' wants his listeners to be 'comfy' and discuss each segments topics as if each and every listener were part of an extended family. "I got the idea after being on another Blog Radio show involving the battle of the sexes" stated Strickland. Once Strickland realized that putting together his own show, with the help of BlogTalkRadio, was simple, Strickland then created 'The Real Deal Show'(www.blogtalkradio.com/therealdeal).

In the past, 'The Real Deal Show' ran on Monday's, currently each show segment airs on Thursday's at 10 PM EST and runs sixty minutes, with guest speakers and a chance for listeners to dial in to append their experiences or just for questions. Strickland keeps the debates respectful and appealing, drawing on open ended queries and commentary, Skrickland keeps an objective point of view throughout the show. Pervious show topics have touched on Gastric Bypass Surgery, Black Leadership, Malcolm X and the ever so alighting 'Black Poetry Cafe'.

Strickland's goal is to help educate a community through discussing topics that pertain solely to Black people, in hopes that they can gain an understanding on even the hardest hitting issues that plague the community.

Derrick 'Doughboi' Strickland, a Chicago native, currently resides in Benton Harbor Michigan with his family, wife, Tasha and daughter, Daijah.
