EDC Creations and The Sankofa Literary Society will host 28 days of
Black History! This spectacular ONLINE event will be the first of
its kind! An entire month long celebration brought to the world via
the Internet and modern technology. You can meet today's brightest
stars from the comfort of your own home!

Each day of February, 2008 there will be a featured day to discuss
Everything About People of Color! Celebrating our past, future, and
the life changing successes we are creating NOW. Daily we will host
noon-day radio chats, blog chat tours, and all day chat-room visits
with readers, video blogging, and e-workshops. Each night there will
be exclusive private chats with authors and book clubs on the phone
chat line, as well as public panel discussions on the radio. All
panel discussions will be recorded and streamed to an open SLS site
for the world to hear and take part in. Society will be able to view
our community leaders, literature, music, and arts in an entirely
new light, at the SLS Black History Site!

We are asking people in the community to take part in this event

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:
