The Rev. Al Sharpton excoriated President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for U.S. Attorney General in a fiery speech at the Harlem Headquarters of his National Action Network—warning the incoming commander-in-chief and his Cabinet picks “better worry about me.”

Sharpton recalled how allegations that Sessions had spoken favorably the Ku Klux Klan, called a black prosecutor “boy” and called the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People “un-American” derailed the Southerner’s nomination for a federal judgeship in 1986 under Ronald Reagan. The controversial civil rights leader paralleled those proceedings before the Senate with his own activism at the time in Howard Beach, Queens, where an Italian-American mob had chased a black man into a deadly collision with a car on Cross-Bay Boulevard—and Trump and his father’s legal battles against discrimination suits.

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:
