The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

Recycling Failed Education Policies

Written by Julianne Malveaux, NNPA Columnist on Tuesday, 02 December 2014 13:49.

Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander will likely become chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Though he has yet to be elected by his Republican peers, he has given several interviews that indicate how he would change the way educational services are delivered in our country. For all his bluster, though, his approach is essentially to privatize and push states rights.

Employees of Small, Locally-Owned Businesses Have More Company Loyalty

Written by Featured Organization on Tuesday, 02 December 2014 13:48.

Employees who work at small, locally owned businesses have the highest level of loyalty to their employers — and for rural workers, size and ownership of their company figure even more into their commitment than job satisfaction does, according to Baylor University researchers. Higher levels of commitment are associated with less absenteeism, lower turnover and less seeking of jobs outside the company. The study — “Small, local and loyal: How firm attributes affect workers’ organizational commitment” — is published in the journal Local Economy.

Standing Against Opposition

Written by Pastor E.A. Deckard, Special to the NNPA from the Houston Forward-Times on Tuesday, 02 December 2014 13:47.

“When you encounter uncomfortable situations, you can either decide to be victim or an over-comer. Always choose to be an over-comer. Grace is within our reach to be an over-comer.” -Lailah Gifty Akita “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” – George Bernard Shaw

Educate, organize and mobilize -- Back in September I wrote an article entitled, Voter Suppression: Creating Black Wealth.  The impetus for that article was a commentary written by Earl G. Graves, Sr., Publisher of Black Enterprise.  The title of his article was "Wake Up! Re-engage in the Battle for Opportunity."  He wrote that Black leaders seem to have forgotten that economic reciprocity is only supplied in response to our consistent and resolutely communicating that it is our absolute expectations.  I consider myself one of those leaders that have failed to deliver economic reciprocity to Black communities.  But, I’m not alone.

Written by Freddie Allen, Senior Washington Correspondent on Monday, 24 November 2014 17:12.

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – In an effort to increase the relevancy of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) redesigned one of its signature programs to cultivate Black industry leaders at the corporate level. Johnny Taylor, president and CEO of TMCF, a HBCU membership group focused on increasing access, retention and graduation rates of students and creating a pipeline of high-qualified graduates for employers, said that the group got off base with its leadership program.
