FAMU Symphonic Band Prince Tribute
« on: May 13, 2016, 03:42:24 PM »
The FAMU Symphonic Band did an awesome rendition of Prince's "Purple Rain" in tribute to the late singer at the 2016 graduation.  The FAMU band performed it with B.K Jackson, a FAMU student who had been member of Prince's band. 

Take a look/listen:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>


Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
