Healthy Communities

The dream of Ujima Enterprises is to have students who are centered in their own historical experiences. Such students, given the objectives of the Ujima project, will be capable of creating healthy communities by transforming themselves into viable citizens. Nothing is so correct for these students as the attachment to cultural truths that produce in the children the kind of values that are necessary for advancement.

oprahwinfreynetworkrr01

2012 was a great year for the Oprah Winfrey Network. OWN, which once suffered from low ratings and management shake-ups, reached double-digit gains and soared with 11 months of consecutive ratings growth.

The 2013 season looks just as bright for OWN. Over the weekend, the network revealed six new original series to its lineup.

The shows include Raising Whitley, a reality series centered around the life of actress and comedienne Kym Whitley; Blackboard Wars, a docu-series about the transformation of New Orleans’ John McDonogh High School; Dogfellas, a show following dog groomer James “Head” Guiliani and Golden Sisters, a reality show starring real-life golden girls Mary, Josie & Teresa.

The lineup also includes two scripted series from OWN’s joint venture with Tyler Perry. The Have and the Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor are both scheduled to air on May 29th.
