**EPISODE MAY CONTAIN EXPLICIT LANGUAGE** This episode is another fun one and I really enjoyed getting to know fellow UVA alum, Dr. Kendall Nicholson, better in this episode.  We cover Race and Architecture, storytelling and empathy. We also touch on how to tap into your network to travel to another country, lessons he's learned so far being a father and how adopting kids through the foster care system has helped him flex his empathy muscles. This is an expansive conversation where we really get into how all everything is connected and how his experiences in one aspect of his life inform all others.  Building Highlight: https://www.visitphilly.com/things-to-do/attractions/philadelphia-museum-of-art/ (Philadelphia Museum of Art). The final plan, adopted in March 1917, was a collaborative effort by the firm of Zantzinger, Borie, and Medary; Paul Cret; Horace Trumbauer; and various members of Trumbauer's firm including Howell Lewis Shay and senior designer Julian Abele, the first African American graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's architecture program and one of the first African American architects to come to prominence in the United States.

Belshazzar, the last king of Babylon learned a very swift and harsh lesson about messin' with God's treasures. You see, he took the Temple treasures his ancestor, Nebuchadnezzar, captured from the Jews' Jerusalem Temple in 586 BC and used them for a drinking party in honor of Babylon's gods. As he did so he mocked Israel's God. BIG MISTAKE! God's hand appeared and wrote out his judgment … death, Babylon's judgment, overthrown … which was carried out that very night. Here's the point. We can REALLY anger God and invite his discipline (if not judgment) when we mess with His treasures. And here's something scary … God has treasures that go far beyond the Temple treasures.

Nina Turner talks about her latest congressional race, which she lost, where the Congressional Progressives Caucus was, & what's next for her. Amy Vilela talks about her own congressional race for Nevada's First District. https://twitter.com/amy4thepeople https://twitter.com/ninaturner Amy Vilela grew up in poverty, relying on programs like WIC & SNAP in order to make ends meet as a single-mother. She took classes at night while working multiple jobs to become the first in her family to earn a degree. She became a national advocate for Medicare for All after her daughter Shalynne died at the hands of our nation's profit-driven healthcare system. After working her way up to become a CFO, Amy has since retooled her professional experience to provide vital campaign services to other progressive candidates. In 2020, serving as a State Co-chair, Amy led the charge for Bernie Sanders' landslide victory in the Nevada caucuses. The Vilelas first moved to Nevada when her husband, Major David Vilela, was transferred to Creech Air Force Base. If elected, she would be the first ever active duty military spouse to serve in Congress. In addition to Congresswoman Cori Bush & Senator Nina Turner, Amy's campaign has attracted national attention and has been endorsed by Brand New Congress, Sunrise Movement Las Vegas, the Center for Biological Diversity & more. Nina Turner, the oldest of seven children, grew up in a working-class family in Cleveland's Lee-Harvard community. Her Mother was a nurse's aide & her Father was a truck driver. Experiencing the impact of income inequality firsthand, Turner took her first job at age 14 to help support her siblings & keep the family afloat. Turner's Mother battled high blood pressure her entire life & died at age 42. This experience exposed to Turner the serious problems with our health care system, especially for Black & lower-income families. After working her way through college and graduate school (she earned an Associate's Degree from Cuyahoga Community College & a Bachelor's and Master's from Cleveland State University), she started a career dedicated to keeping Ohio working families afloat too. Turner made history in 2005 as the first African American woman to represent Ward One on the Cleveland City Council, & again in 2008 as the first African American woman to serve as a State Senator in Ohio's 25th District. In the legislature, Turner repeatedly defended against attacks on women's health care freedom & partnered with working families & organized labor to protect collective bargaining rights. As a champion for criminal justice reform, she led the effort to create Ohio's first task force on police & community relations in the wake of tragic police killings in Ohio & across the country. Turner went on to serve as the Chair of Party Engagement for the Ohio Democratic Party, leading the effort to build a more robust & inclusive organizing infrastructure & support for local Democratic candidates across the State. Turner took her record of accomplishment & commitment to justice nationwide when she became a national surrogate for Bernie Sanders' 2016 Presidential campaign & National Co-Chair for Bernie 2020. In those roles, she traveled coast to coast building support for progressive values such as a $15 living wage, free education from kindergarten through college & health care as a human right in the form of Medicare for All. Between those two campaigns, Turner also served as the President of the national grassroots political organization “Our Revolution.” Nina Turner is a wife, mother & proud grandmother. A former Assistant Professor of History at her alma mater Cuyahoga Community College, she is also the current host of the “Hello Somebody” podcast on iHeartRadio. ***Please support The Katie Halper Show *** On Patreon https://www.patreon.com/thekatiehalpershow Follow Katie on Twitter: https://twitter.com/kthalps Callin link: https://www.callin.com/episode/nina-turner-amy-vilela-qsJgTwzHDK

The reality is there's a lot of inequity in our American system. It's been there since our founding. Sure, improvements have been made, but we're nowhere near there yet. And you can see it in our region, too.  Short of a massive federal program to truly begin to level out the metaphorical playing field on a number of levels for African Americans and other groups, to help get wealth into communities, start businesses, and more — the work has to be done where it can. One of those areas is with access to loans.

The Boundary Waters: A Quantum Adventure by Gerry HuerthThe Boundary Waters chronicles the unfolding and sometimes comic relationship between Raymona Washington Goldberg, an African American woman adopted as an infant by Jewish parents during a Freedom Ride in the 1960's and Matthew Pierson a gay man who geographically lives in Minneapolis but psychically inhabits a world of romantic fantasies. She spends her time barricaded in her Upper East Side Apartment in New York City, afraid to be contaminated by the stories lurking in the most common circumstances. Matthew distracts himself with romantic stories in which he becomes entangled. Their phone conversations provide a hygienic boundary through which Raymona experiences the world and Matthew has an audience. Their relationship takes a dramatic turn when Matthew entangles himself with three other gay men who are going to The Boundary Waters in Minnesota. One of the men is at the end stage of AIDS. Matthew is quite suddenly captured in an adventure in which wishful happy endings lose all meaning. Not only does the boundary between Raymona and Matthew start shifting, but both characters begin exploring the carefully guarded boundaries in their own lives. Their stories interact in a kind of synchrony as they stumble through the comedy and heartbreak of the human condition. I am a 73-year-old person who has creatively responded to being an outsider and in that process has learned to be an effective advocate for people who face the challenges of working with systems that may not be responsive to their hopes and needs. Fifty years ago I was an early member of FREE, the first Gay and Lesbian college organization in this country.https://www.amazon.com/Boundary-Waters-Quantum-Adventure-ebook/dp/B094GFXM3F/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=9781648953958&qid=1623260949&sr=8-1https://www.gerryhuerth.com/https://www.stratton-press.com/#/http://www.bluefunkbroadcasting.com/root/twia/51222spa.mp3

Activists on both sides of the abortion debate took to the streets in protest after the leaking of a draft Supreme Court decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that made abortion legal in the United States. Pro-life proponents say overturning the decision is a victory for unborn children. Pro-choice proponents say overturning the decision eliminates a woman's right to determine her own healthcare. Who is likely to be most affected if abortion becomes illegal on the federal level? What will happen to the women who live in the 13 states that have "trigger laws" that will immediately ban abortions upon the Court's decision? What will happen to women without the means to travel to states that will perform the procedure? And how will this decision impact the upcoming mid-term elections?

Rebecca Wanzo (https://www.rebeccawanzo.com/) is a Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and an Affiliate Professor of American Culture Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. She's the author of The Suffering Will Not Be Televised: African American Women and Sentimental Political Storytelling, a book that thinks through the kinds of storytelling conventions that African American women, and social beings in general, are compelled to use to make their suffering legible to specific institutions in the United States. Her most recent book, The Content of Our Caricature: African American Comic Art and Political Belonging, is a remarkable study of the many ways that Black cartoonists have used racialized caricatures to contest and rework constructions of ideal citizenship. Wanzo recalls being told that her subject in The Content of Our Caricature had basically been exhausted. Imagine being questioned about whether there was enough content for a scholarly book within the history of Black comics—it speaks to the ways that, as she points out, comics are still seen as somewhat juvenile, and also the ways in which Black comics, in particular, are not understood as having their own vital, varied history. It's interesting to think that Wanzo struggled to get the cover image for the book approved by the publisher. This striking image from Jeremy Love's Bayou perfectly captures the concerns of her text. As she puts it, one of the questions she's asking, again and again, in this book is: “What is this Black creator trying to do” with this representation of a figure—in the case of Bayou, the figure of the gollywog—that has “a specific racist… representational history”? In the coda for The Content of Our Caricature, Wanzo talks about the Marvel film Black Panther and its foundations in the foundational story arc surrounding Killmonger from the comics. She explains how the “transformation” and “rehabilitation” of Black Panther shows us how the history of representation and appropriation really is complex, and stresses that there is never “a homogenous black audience response. Things are not transparently always good and always bad." She argues that we really need to slow the process of interpretation and critical conversation down, and resist the tendency toward immediate condemnation. “Cancel culture,” as we've now titled it, is, in her words, “subsuming” so many different things that it's become a “useless analytic tool.” It's also a dizzyingly ironic title, given that those that frequently decry so-called cancel culture—namely those on the Right—are at the vanguard of canceling huge parts of culture that they deem threatening. Wanzo explains that, in the contemporary context, what we are seeing is the Right, in the US especially, attacking not only critical race theory, but all of “history” and “any discussion of discrimination.” The dominant form that cancellation is taking today vilifies any media that, from Wanzo's perspective, “might make white heterosexual children from heteronormative families uncomfortable.” She makes it clear that this push exposes the fact that these groups fundamentally “don't care about people who are not this ideal child that they've decided is American.” We talk about the ways that the mere presence of people who are not cisgendered and white in superhero stories still provokes strong reactions. Wanzo says that this spontaneous reaction to difference is deeply troubling, but it also shows the degree to which “the space of representation is a big battleground, and it matters,” and reveals “all kinds of conflicts that we have culturally and it's a space under which various politics around inclusion and the nation and political belonging play out.”

To be more sustainable, we often strive to reduce the amount of waste that we are creating and bringing into our homes. In this episode, we're talking with The Afrominimalist about how minimalism relates to sustainability, how to get rid of things that no longer serve you, and how African American history and how that has shaped our beliefs with consumerism. Today's featured sustainable Brown Girl is Christine Platt, author of The Afrominimalist's Guide to Living with Less, a radical re-envisioning of minimalism that focuses on authenticity over aesthetics. Christine's book is a resource anyone seeking to discover the truth behind their overconsumption as well as how to let go of what no longer serves them.

When the pandemic canceled concerts and postponed recitals, musician Brendan Slocumb had time to try something new. What resulted is a gripping mystery about a stolen violin and a dark family secret that threaten to thwart the dreams of classical violinist Ray McMillian.  Like Slocumb, Ray is African American. While writing Ray's arduous path to success, Slocumb drew on his own experiences facing prejudice from colleagues and conductors, “They see your name on an application or they see you walk in and the decision is already made. If you performed poorly that would be one thing, but if you really did the work and it's just because of what you look like, that's what really hurts.” Brendan Slocumb will be at the Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 21st.

This week on Minnesota Native News, the Science Museum of Minnesota is funding mini-projects for Native Community members… We'll tell you how you can get involved.Here's Diego Luke with the story…DL: Have you ever wanted to create a project that would accurately reflect you, your tribe and your culture? As the Science Museum of Minnesota works to“create an inclusive, equity-based institution that empowers people to change the world through STEM,” They are currently accepting applications for one of their newer initiatives- the Design for Racial Justice Mini Grant. I sat down with Robby Callahan Schreiber to learn more about these grantsRCS: My name's Robby Callahan Schreiber, I used he/him/his pronouns, I'm the director of the Museums Access and Equity Department.Um, and in short, our department does work across the museum to create more accessible and inclusive experiences. We do that through a variety of financial access points. Um, recognizing that we want to remove financial barriers for folks to engage with our museum experiences and recognize that we continue to have disparities in representation of who, you know, sees themselves as being able to come to the Science Museum.DL:: The goal of the Racial Justice Mini Grants is to provide funding to support creative and innovative work that is going on within our local communities. This is the second year of these mini grants, and this year is focused on projects done by and/or focused on Native Americans.RCS: In the first year we really did a wide call, had about 60 applicants and we funded um, I believe, about 10 projects.DL: An example from last year's projects is a group of young African American girls that threw a summer program exploring their racial identity, focusing on health care and more specifically mental health. RCS: One of the decisions we made this year was to take a more focused approach in who we're inviting to apply for, um, projects and keeping with intentional work we said we needed to do and wanted to do as an organization over the course of this year which was develop more focused relationships and focus um, you know, resources that we have within our local indigenous communities.DL: So what kind of project is the Science Museum looking for?RCS: So beyond just focusing and really specifically sharing the invitation with folks of indigenous identities is to say that through the lens of our Race exhibit and the topics and the topics that are brought up within our Race exhibit, inviting people to develop projects that are around racial justice but that are important to you as a Native person or an Indigenous person within our communities.RCS: The projects could really take any number of formats from being artistic to theatrical to inviting people into dialogue to more direct action and when we think about our Race exhibit our topics are really wide and vast when we think about how race shows up. They could address everything from the health care system to our educational systems to housing, wealth, generation and our criminal justice systems.DL: Projects can be done in any language as well.  The Science Museum has set aside $20,000 for the Mini Grants. Both Individuals as well as collaborations of two or more individuals can apply for up to a $3,000 mini grant, depending on the size of the project.RCS: Information about the Mini Grants is available on the Museum website, and so people can apply directly through there. If you search Design for Racial Justice Mini Grants, Science Museum of Minnesota, you'll find a landing page for those grants. Um, people can apply online and, uh, also download the application materials and apply by doing a handwritten application. We also recognize that some people may be more comfortable sharing an audio version or a video application and so we're trying to make the application process really as accessible as possible. DL: The application deadline is Friday, May 20th. Applicants will be notified the following Monday if their project has been chosen to be funded.RCS: We're really excited to see the variety of ideas that people generate. We see these as making an investment in, you know, real practical work and action that young people within our community can do. I think adults often say, “oh young people are our future.” But through this mini granting process we want to be making an investment in young people in our present, because young people have amazing ideas that we should be taking action around, today. DL: For Minnesota Native News, I'm Diego LukeMarie: Minnesota Native News is produced by Ampers- diverse radio for Minnesota's communities.

Dr. Mattis, who is also a Dean of faculty at Rutgers, did not start her career wanting to study hope. She started out studying spirituality and religiosity, specifically concentrating her field work and interviews in African-American and Afri-Caribbean urban communities. She wanted to know why people living under high stress conditions so often choose to be good and compassionate. And that research ultimately led her to hope.In this episode we talk about: How her family history influenced her relationship to optimism and faith The difference between spirituality and religiosity The benefits of hope and skills to cultivate itThe ways hope can go wrongAnd the benefits of denialFull Shownotes: https://www.tenpercent.com/podcast-episode/jacqueline-mattis-340-repostSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Mobolajia Olambiwonuu is a Nigerian immigrant who struggled with what it meant to be Black in America when he was literally an African American. His outlook on race in America helped to formulate his work both as a professor at film school and a documentary filmmaker. He is the filmmaker behind the documentary “Ferguson Rises.” It's a look at how the lives of Michael Brown's family, particularly his father, were turned upside down after Michael's killing by Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson. It's a film that looks at how a community finds purpose in pain, and it's executive produced by the likes of actor David Oyelowo, the rapper Rza, Academy Award-winning producer TJ Martin, and others. Mobolaji and I have a great conversation about his work, his thoughts on other prominent black filmmakers, how differently he saw himself as an African immigrant in America relative to Black people born here, and how he overcame challenges to make this documentary.

For decades, political discourse in Baltimore has included condemnation of the fact that there are “two Baltimores,” one in which opportunity abounds and the other in which systemic racism and inequity create insurmountable barriers. Tom's guest today has lived in both Baltimores, and he has written a fascinating memoir that paints a vivid portrait of these two disparate worlds, and of himself. It is a portrait that is richly detailed, expertly researched, and beautifully enlarged by insight, candor and a fair dollop of iconoclasm. Dr. Lawrence Jackson is a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of English and History at Johns Hopkins University, and the founding director of the Billie Holiday Center for the Liberation Arts. He's the author of several books on the history of African American writers and critics, the Black crime novelist Chester B. Himes, and the author Ralph Ellison. He also wrote a book about his family's history in Virginia after the Civil War. His latest book is, in part, another work of family history. It's called Shelter: A Black Tale of Homeland, Baltimore. Dr. Lawrence Jackson joins us on Zoom from Baltimore. Dr. Jackson will discuss the book (again) with Tom Hall Wednesday night (May 11) with an audience at The Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore, a place that figures prominently in the book.

Jason Moran is so prolific and multifaceted that any attempt to summarize his career poses a daunting challenge. Now think about what it's like preparing for a conversation with him. He's a composer, conceptual artist, educator, and public intellectual with a critical disposition — critical in the sense of challenging the status quo, while still respecting the accomplishments of his mentors. First and foremost, he's a piano player who straddles avant-garde jazz, the blues, classical music, stride piano, and hip-hop. In other words, he's just an incredibly thoughtful person. Moran is interested in reframing and reassessing the relationship between music, history, and place. When we spoke for this episode of The Third Story, in the spring of 2020, he was in the midst of curating an exhibition at the Louis Armstrong House Museum. Given that fact and what was happening at the time, I was particularly interested to know how he was dealing with social distancing and isolation. Our conversation is both a snapshot of that moment in time and a sweeping consideration of many of the larger themes in his work. Among other things, he talks here about coming up in Houston among a generation of jazz innovators; the idea of truth versus passion; promoting the “Freedom Principle”; America's unfortunate way of forgetting the past; what it means for African American musicians to move freely “from the stage to the table”; the power dynamic within choosing repertoire; what Thelonious Monk and KRS-1 have in common; what we still have to learn from Louis Armstrong; and what it means to be the “personal embodiment of your history.” This is the second in a month of encore episodes as part of a new partnership between The Third Story and WBGO Studios.

This week we are joined by archivist Jacqueline Stewart and historian Tyree Boyd-Pates to discuss the power of museum curation. The role of the museum curator is critical to the way that museums are experienced. We begin by discussing museums as “safe spaces for dangerous ideas” – in other words, how museums can be harbingers of racist and colonialist rhetoric when spaces are improperly curated. Museums can not only present history through materials, but also have the power to represent the present materials. We then discuss how museums can be spaces of change through seeing not only more presentation of anti-colonial materials, but also seeing those materials represented through an anti-colonial gaze. The guests stress the importance of having more African American curators in order to not only tell the history of a people, but of the community as well.Jacqueline Stewart is film scholar, archivist, curator and a Professor in the Department of Cinema and Media Studies and the College, Director of Arts + Public Life at the University of Chicago.
