I would like to know if you all can recommend books or even links on African spirituality. When i research it i normally run into a plethera of topics but they discuss it with the assumption that you know WTF they are talking about. They talk about orishas and what not as though brothas on the corner discuss that all the time. " Oh yeah orishas! I love me some orishas" smh. But seriously, Yoruba and other systems are fine. Thanks i appreciate it.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
