How I Finally Faced Up To The Hate Unleashed By Trump And Betsy DeVos
Huffington Post - 20 days
It’s been hard for me to face the whole story explaining why my fellow Oklahomans have embraced Trumpism in general and, too often, his Secretary of Education appointee Betsy DeVos in particular. Even though my conservative state has an extreme record of corruption, we also had an ethic where a politician’s handshake had to be good; an individual’s word had to be true. We believed, “my opponent is my opponent, not my enemy.” In the contact sport of politics, elbows would be thrown, but you don’t take out your opponent’s knee. Growing up in Oklahoma, I also learned something that I’m less proud of. Although I’ve committed my life to working within the system to make things better for the poorest children of color in Oklahoma City, there is another aspect of my upbringing. If a school reformer looked me in the eye and said what many do in their writing ― that I’m a racist because I try to work inside the education status quo ― I’d likely ask him to step outside. O ...

A New Way of Being 'Pro-Choice'
Huffington Post - about 3 years
"Ella Baker chose her own path to affecting positive social change." I knew from the beginning that as a woman, an older woman, in a group of ministers who are accustomed to having women largely as supporters, there was no place for me to come into a leadership role. The competition wasn't worth it. These are the words Ella Baker spoke regarding her decision to leave the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, SCLC, in 1958. Baker was one of the core founders of this organization. Yet, her male colleagues only recognized her competence and expertise to a limit. The "preacher's club" selected Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker to replace Baker at the helm. Due to this prevailing patriarchy and what she deemed a focus on "mass rallies and grand exhortations by ministers without follow-up," Baker left the SCLC. She chose to go her own womanly way.

How About Some Rhee-lated Information From Tax Documents?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I have been reading tax forms -- 990s, the form of the nonprofit organization (no 1040s for them). It might sound boring, but I guess that all depends upon whose tax forms they are. Two 990s are the subject of this post. The first is the 2011 (August 2011 to July 2012) 990 for Michelle Rhee's reform lobbying organization, StudentsFirst (SF). The second is the 2011 990 from the lesser-known SF sister organization, StudentsFirst Institute (SFI). Both forms were signed by Michelle Rhee on June 13, 2013 and filed with the IRS in Ogden UT on June 18, 2013. The Best of Both Worlds: 501(c)3 and 501(c)4 Both SF and SFI are nonprofits. However, SF is a 501(c)4, and SFI, a 501(c)3. A 501(c)3 is limited in the percent of its budget that it can devote to lobbying. (Violation of this restriction is the reason that Common Cause filed its whistleblower complaint with the IRS against the American Legislative Exchange Council [ALEC] in April 2012.) However, a 501(c)4 does not have such a restric ...

WATCH: The Huge Mistake 'Daddyless Daughters' Make
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Women who grow up without fathers often struggle with feelings of low self-esteem and unworthiness. Iyanla Vanzant calls these women "daddyless daughters" and, in a special two-part show for "Oprah's Lifeclass," Iyanla helps examine what really happens when girls are raised without their fathers. One common behavior shared by many daddyless daughters is the willingness to settle, especially with it comes to finding a partner. "If you want so much to be with the wrong one, imagine how good it will feel when the right one shows up," Iyanla says in the video above. "Be willing to be with you until he or she or it -- whatever it is -- shows up. If you don't want to be with you, why do you think someone else [would] want to be with you?" Dr. Steve Perry, an important voice in the "Lifeclass" discussion on fatherless sons, agrees that it comes down to how daddyless daughters set their standards and believes it's a huge mistake to allow others to define you.

WATCH: 8 Simple Things Good Dads Do
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Oprah calls it an epidemic in this country that so many boys can be called "fatherless sons." Yet, whether a father had been physically absent for part of his son's life or emotionally disconnected from the child he's raising, there are still concrete things dad can do to reestablish the father-son bond. For Geoffrey Canada, founder of the Harlem Children's Zone, the reconnection process centers around an eight-item action plan that he revealed on a special "fatherless sons" episode of "Oprah's Lifeclass." One item Canada calls attention to in the above video is to share something unique with a son -- Canada suggests cooking. "Cook a meal. Even if you don't know how to cook, just say to your son, 'Look, we're going to both burn up some food together,'" he advises. "Forever, that's going to be in his mind." Canada says that fathers should also take a day off work to accompany their sons on a class field trip. "Fathers never come on the school trips. They don't think it's ...

WATCH: Why Kids Feel 'Fatherless' Even When Dad Is Around
Huffington Post - over 3 years
According to the National Fatherhood Initiative, one in three children live apart from their biological fathers in America. After airing a two-part special on these fatherless sons for "Oprah's Lifeclass," a panel of educators dedicated to tackling this epidemic returned to talk about specific ways to lift fatherless sons out of their pain. Among the topics discussed were redefining the role of the father and exploring how a child can still be "fatherless" even when dad is present in his life. Traditionally, fathers seem to have two distinct roles: disciplinarians and providers. "The role of a father is to establish structure," says Dr. Steve Perry, founder of Capital Preparatory Magnet School, where 100 percent of its predominantly low-income, minority graduates have gone on to four-year colleges. "Earlier today, my son was trying to work my wife into getting him some soda... So, Dad had to organize some structure over the phone. [My son] needs to apologize to his mother f ...

Zorianna Kit: Movie Review: Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey is a thoroughly enjoyable, feel-good documentary that proves dreams can come true if you keep at it long enough, even if you live in the most far-flung and remote corners of the world. That's exactly what happened to 40-year-old Arnel Pineda, the Filipino singer at the center of the documentary. In 2007, You Tube videos of him singing Journey cover songs with his band in Manila, Philippines, caught the attention of the U.S. band Journey in 2007, which at the time was looking for a new lead singer. Pineda was flown to San Francisco to audition and after a stressful two-day process, he got the gig. American-Filipino filmmaker Ramona Diaz heard about the story and thought it would make for a compelling documentary. After pitching the band and getting their approval, she embarked on Journey's first tour with Pineda at their new voice, chronicling the singer's life as it took a 180-degree turn from being a singer in club band to being ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Steve Perry
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2010
    Age 61
    In an interview with, Classic Rock Presents AOR released in December 2010, it was revealed that Perry has written over 50 songs and is contemplating his first solo project since 1994. "A little over a year and a half ago, I felt I could maybe come back to it, I have been writing.
    More Details Hide Details I have about 50 songs, in a little over a year. I never thought I would do it again, but I decided to open up that room and see what I could find. It's been interesting. Some of it sounds familiar, some of it sounds contemporary, some of it you can't put a label on - and I've never been big on labels anyway." Perry is reluctant however to put a timescale on his return. "I'll be honest, I don't really know how to do that but I can definitely smell a solo project on the horizon. I will be recording some music." Sam Cooke has been widely recognized as a major influence on Perry's vocal style. Perry's singing has garnered acclaim from prominent musical peers and publications. Queen guitarist Brian May said, "Perry is a truly luminous singer, in my opinion — a voice in a million." Sony record executive, American Idol judge and musician Randy Jackson described Perry's as "the golden voice", and opined that "Other than Robert Plant, there's no singer in rock that even came close to Steve Perry." "The power, the range, the tone — he created his own style. He mixed a little Motown, a little Everly Brothers, a little Zeppelin." He has been described as "The Voice", a moniker originally coined by Jon Bon Jovi.
    An avid fan of the San Francisco Giants, Perry was spotlighted during their 2010 World Championship run.
    More Details Hide Details He was spotted in game 5 of the NLCS leading the crowd in a singalong of Don't Stop Believin'. In the eighth inning of the second game of the 2010 World Series in San Francisco, fans at AT&T Park began singing along to the song "Lights" by Journey. Perry, was shown on the scoreboard singing, jumping and pumping up the crowd. The Giants went on to win 9–0 over the Texas Rangers.

    More Details Hide Details Perry rekindled a childhood love for cattle and dairy farming, including an interest in a small bovine insemination business in California's Central Valley.
  • 2006
    Age 57
    In late 2006, Perry's two solo projects, Street Talk and For the Love of Strange Medicine (both featuring previously unreleased material), and his Greatest Hits CD were remastered and re-released.

  • 2005
    Age 56
    In 2005, Perry produced "The Secret of Moving On", a track on a solo album for former Ambrosia lead vocalist David Pack.
    More Details Hide Details
    Perry appeared at a ceremony on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 21, 2005, after previously stating it was unlikely that he would ever stand with the band again.
    More Details Hide Details He indicated that, though it was a good experience, his rejoining Journey is not likely. However, he has also stated "never say never, unless you mean never, never the less" when the issue of returning to Journey has been mentioned.
  • 2001
    Age 52
    Perry also provided background vocals for "A Brand New Start," among the many songs he and Pack co-wrote shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
    More Details Hide Details The album, released in September 2005, includes covers of two of Pack's biggest hits with Ambrosia, "Biggest Part of Me" and "You're the Only Woman." During the 2005 baseball season, the Chicago White Sox adopted Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" as their unofficial team anthem. As a result, Perry (an avid San Francisco Giants fan) was asked to attend the World Series and even traveled with the White Sox to Houston where Perry joined the players on the field and in the locker room as they celebrated their championship.
    Journey was the subject of an episode of VH1's Behind the Music in 2001, where Perry made the statement that he "never really felt like he was part of the band", to which former manager Herbie Herbert reacted saying "that's like the Pope saying he never really felt Catholic."

  • 1998
    Age 49
    Also in 1998, Perry recorded two songs for the Warner Bros. film, Quest for Camelot, which can be found on the motion picture's soundtrack.
    More Details Hide Details
    He released the Greatest Hits + Five Unreleased compilation album later in 1998; the unreleased tracks included an original Alien Project demo as well as selections from the abandoned Against the Wall CD.
    More Details Hide Details
    Perry underwent successful hip replacement surgery in 1998 to correct the problem he had been diagnosed with two years earlier.
    More Details Hide Details
    The remaining members waited until 1998, nearly 17 months after Perry's injury, before making a decision on Journey's future.
    More Details Hide Details Growing impatient and realizing the window of opportunity was closing to follow up the success of the platinum-selling Trial By Fire LP with a world tour, Journey members Jonathan Cain and Neal Schon met with Perry and presented an ultimatum that he either undergo hip replacement surgery so the tour could proceed upon his recovery or a replacement singer would be hired. Perry, still hesitant to undergo surgery and now apparently upset at his bandmates' intractability and their perceived meddling in personal health decisions, decided to leave Journey. Perry's vocal duties were later taken over by Steve Augeri of Tall Stories, and nearly two years after the album's initial release, Journey began its long-postponed tour. While being interviewed during Journey's Revelation tour of 2008, Schon and Cain praised Perry's mighty presence in Journey, adding that Perry had "raised the bar" for Journey. Bassist Valory suggested Journey lead singers who sound like him do so in honor of Perry's legacy with Journey.
  • 1994
    Age 45
    In 1994 Perry released For the Love of Strange Medicine, his second solo effort.
    More Details Hide Details The album enjoyed some success, partly due to the Strange Medicine world tour. Journey's classic 1981–85 lineup reunited in 1996 to record Trial by Fire. The album was a huge success, entering the Billboard charts at #3 and going platinum before year's end, but its triumph was short-lived. Before the Trial By Fire tour could begin, Perry suffered a hip injury while hiking in Hawaii and was unable to perform. Perry was diagnosed with a degenerative bone condition and a hip replacement would be required. Reluctant to rush into surgery, Perry wished to postpone the tour. Due to the long wait between the album's release and the tour's postponed kick-off date, as well as the absence of Journey's iconic frontman, Journey fans were losing hope for the band's future. Meanwhile, long-time Journey drummer Steve Smith resigned, reportedly saying "Journey without Steve Perry was like Jack without his box." (Smith had rejoined, along with original Journey member Ross Valory).
  • THIRTIES
  • 1987
    Age 38
    It was during this period also that Perry worked with the Irish folk-rock group Clannad on their 1987 album Sirius.
    More Details Hide Details Perry debated continuing a solo career or returning to Journey after the success of Street Talk. He left his second solo album Against the Wall unfinished and instead sang on Journey's Raised on Radio album. Perry would revisit his solo project after the Raised On Radio tour but it never saw completion. Several of the songs that were recorded for Against the Wall, however, did appear much later on Perry's 1998 solo compilation, Greatest Hits + Five Unreleased. While Perry was reuniting with Journey, his mother became ill. The recording of Raised on Radio, which Perry was producing, was stop-and-go as he frequently returned to the San Joaquin valley to visit his mother, who died during the production of Raised on Radio. It took a major toll on Journey to have intermittent recording sessions and a vocalist who was not with the band much of the time. Eventually, as Perry later said, he was "toast." Journey disbanded in 1987 after the Raised on Radio tour. Perry then disappeared from the public eye for seven years, taking a break from the music industry.
  • 1985
    Age 36
    In 1985, Perry was one of 21 singers in the USA for Africa all-star benefit song "We Are the World."
    More Details Hide Details He also recorded a song, "If Only For the Moment, Girl" for the We Are the World album. This song was added to the reissue of his album Street Talk.
  • 1984
    Age 35
    In 1984, following the release of Frontiers and the tour supporting this effort, Perry released his first solo album, entitled Street Talk, named after the original name of Perry's earlier band Alien Project.
    More Details Hide Details The record sold more than 2 million units, scoring the hit singles #3 "Oh Sherrie," written for his then-girlfriend Sherrie Swafford, and #18 "Foolish Heart." The music video for "Oh Sherrie" saw heavy rotation on MTV. "She's Mine" and "Strung Out" were also released as singles from this project, which featured former Alien Project drummer Craig Krampf on a few tracks, guitarist Michael Landau, and future American Idol judge Randy Jackson on bass, amongst others.
  • 1980
    Age 31
    During his tenure with Journey, Perry sang backing vocals on several Sammy Hagar songs, including the 1980 tracks "The Iceman" (a nickname Hagar had for Scott Mathews) and "Run For Your Life," and duetting with Kenny Loggins on the 1982 #17 hit single "Don't Fight It."
    More Details Hide Details Perry also worked with other musicians such as Sheena Easton, Clannad and Jon Bon Jovi during the height of his career. A 1983 Gallup poll of people between the ages of 13-25 voted Journey their favorite rock band.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1977
    Age 28
    Perry brought a completely new pop sound to the band's music, despite grumblings from his new bandmates and fans of Journey's former progressive rock sound. He made his public debut on October 28, 1977 in San Francisco, and received a mixed reception.
    More Details Hide Details Perry determinedly proved the critics wrong, and won over new audiences on his first album with the group, Infinity, which included a song of his own composition called "Lights." The band's style had changed dramatically, but as Journey began to garner radio airplay and media buzz over Infinity, Perry's arrival was accepted. He provided lead vocals on nine of Journey's albums: Infinity (1978), Evolution (1979), Departure (1980), Dream, After Dream (1980, a Japanese movie soundtrack), Captured (1980, a live album), Escape (1981, which went to #1 on the Billboard charts), Frontiers (1983), Raised on Radio (1986), and Trial By Fire (1996). The single "Open Arms," from Escape, was their biggest hit single, residing for six weeks at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Perry had become the unmistakable voice of Journey throughout his time with the band.
