93% of televisions in the United States tuned in to see Neil Armstrong walk on the Moon. Can you believe 7% were watching something else? At 11pm on a Sunday?? But as much as we love it now, Apollo 11's contemporary acclaim wasn't exactly universal. Many people, all over America, had reservations about spending billions of dollars on space exploration instead of solving problems here on Earth. And some Americans had their eyes on a very different, much more important prize. The rise of Apollo coincided with the peak of the Civil Rights Movement (which technically ended with the signing of the Civil Rights Act in 1968—but we all know the struggle and the movement didn't end there). In this episode, Emily, Matt, and Nick explore the intersection of these two moments in American history, discuss the protests, activists, and anthems of the time, and talk to Sylvia Drew Ivie about the issues then and how we're still working to turn it all around.

*WARNING* - This episode contains terminology used to describe African Americans and may offend some listeners. However, it is used in the context of the story. The high school girls were imprisoned. Why? The 1960's in America were a decade of profound change and upheaval in society, culture and politics. The Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War, and political assassinations were to define the era. But there was another event which occurred that so few people even know about. It's a story which seems to have been forgotten by time and by history.

In this episode we host Joshua Myers, to talk about his recently published book Cedric Robinson: The Time of the Black Radical Tradition. Folks will recall that last year we had a conversation with Josh Myers about Cedric Robinson much of which centered around the content and concepts within Black Marxism.  While there is a slight overlap between this conversation and that one, the two are quite distinct and mutually inform each other. So we invite folks to revisit that alongside this conversation, or to listen to both for the first time to get a more complete picture of Myers' extensive knowledge and analysis of Robinson's life and work. Beyond that of course we encourage folks to pick up this book as it really does a great job of grounding Robinson's intellectual work within the context of his life, organizing and relationships. In this conversation we talk more about young Cedric's developing anti-imperialist and anti-colonial consciousness. His disenchantment with the aims, strategies and tactics of the Civil Rights Movement. His critiques of leadership, and analysis of charisma, which set the ground for his first book The Terms of Order. And we discuss how Robinson's work has always aimed to assault the foundations of academic disciplines. We discuss the relationship between Robinson and CLR James, and the practices of study and development of undercommons spaces for colleagues and students. We also talk about the relationship between Cedric and Immanuel Wallerstein and Modern World Systems Theory.  We talk briefly about the arguments Robinson takes up in An Anthropology of Marxism and Forgeries of Memory and Meaning and of course we can't resist a couple of questions on recent readings, mis-readings, and non-readings of Robinson's most well-known work Black Marxism. We are only six patrons away from returning to 1,000 patrons, so if you have been waiting for that moment to become a patron of Millennials Are Killing Capitalism, it's a great time to join up and help sustain the work that we do here, bringing you conversations like this.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the fifth and final study session on Ernest Tidyman's 1970 novel, SHAFT. Tidyman is a White man. He forged a distinguished journalism career working for The New York Times and Ohio's The Plain Dealer. In the midst of the so called Civil Rights Movement and the unrest of the 1960's, Tidyman decided to concoct a narrative around a black private detective named John SHAFT. This relatively short book sparked fifty years of trashy films and a television program, and mightily influenced the thoughts, speech, action, emotions, and wardrobe of generations of black people. Gus has yet to hear of any black people (including Neely Fuller Jr.) who were aware that the SHAFT franchise is the spawn of a White Man. Last week, SHAFT was beaten down by the White thugs who kidnapped Knox Parson's daughter. Following the assault, SHAFT requests a black doctor to repair his injuries. This is a significant difference from 1971 film, where a White doctor bandages a wounded Richard Roundtree. Before being battered, Tidyman has SHAFT chat with one of the mobsters. He tells the black private detective about his thoughts on White Women who have sex with "spades" and insists that these sorts like it "rough." #IsaacHayes INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE 564943# INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE: 564943#

During the third session, Tidyman has White enforcement officials describe the White mafia killing of several black males. They remark that this had to be the work of a White man because black people are not great thinkers. Repeatedly, Tidyman describes Ben Buford, the only character in the book attempting to counter racism, as some type of insect (non-human). At one point, Ben Buford, SHAFT and Knox Parsons have a brawl over the details of the kidnapping. Tidyman has Buford label SHAFT as a "faggot cocksucker." The homoeroticism of the text continues, when Tidyman has a pair of White gangbangers gawk and fantasize about having anti-sex with SHAFT and/or viewing SHAFT engaged in sexual activity. #IsaacHayes INVEST in The COWS – paypal.me/TheCOWS Invest in The C.O.W.S. - Cash App: http://Cash.App/$TheCOWS The C.O.W.S.

In Thibodaux he attended Nicholls State University where he completed his bachelors in athletic training while playing football. During his last semester at Nicholls, is when he decided to make the life changing decision of going to chiropractic school.    To put things into perspective; Dr. Raymond was raised in an allopathic household where if his grandparents heard as much as a cough, they would intervene with medication but with good intentions. From the age of 8 years old Dr. Raymond had a gut feeling that intervening the body's natural healing mechanism was not the answer, and with that same gut feeling he knew that chiropractic was exactly what he had been searching for. So, he attended Life University for his doctorate of chiropractic.    At Life University is where he met Dr. Mariya, so not only did he obtain a degree, but he gained a beautiful family. His daughter's names are Sienna and Collette.    Dr. Raymond is a natural born leader and a person of service for humanity.

President Biden meets with Pope Francis as part of his busy schedule at the G-20 Summit. This comes as he fails to win Democratic support on his $1.75 trillion dollar Build Back Better plan. CBS's Ed O'Keefe has the latest. A multimillion dollar settlement was reached this week for the families of the victims of the 2015 Charleston, South Carolina mass shooting. This was where a white gunman opened fire inside a Black church, killing nine people. CBS's Jeff Pegues reports. Another step Friday made towards vaccinating 28-million kids against Covid-19. Children between the ages of 5 and 11 could start getting shots as early as next week, if the CDC signs off on smaller doses. CBS's Janet Shamlian reports. The coronavirus pandemic is hurting global unemployment. CBS News Foreign Affairs Analyst Pamela Falk explains. The play "Celia and Fidel" is currently being performed at Washington D.C's Arena Stage. We'll hear from author Eduardo Machado, who talks about the plot, an imaginary conversation between Fidel Castro and Celia Sanchez, the nation's most influential female revolutionary. And plot twist -- she's a ghost! In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus in Alabama. Parks was widely celebrated as the "mother of the civil rights movement." However, nine months earlier, Claudette Colvin was arrested for the same thing. On this week's Kaleidoscope, Allison speaks with the now 82 -year-old Ms. Colvin, who is seeking to clear her name. Finally, some tips for those planning trick or treating outings this Halloween amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. These stories and more one the CBS News "Weekend Roundup" with host Allison Keyes.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the fourth study session on Ernest Tidyman's 1970 novel, SHAFT. Tidyman is a White man. He forged a distinguished journalism career working for The New York Times and Ohio's The Plain Dealer. In the midst of the so called Civil Rights Movement and the unrest of the 1960's, Tidyman decided to concoct a narrative around a black private detective named John SHAFT. This relatively short book sparked fifty years of trashy films and a television program, and mightily influenced the thoughts, speech, action, emotions, and wardrobe of generations of black people. Gus has yet to hear of any black people (including Neely Fuller Jr.) who were aware that the SHAFT franchise is the spawn of a White Man. During the third session, Tidyman has White enforcement officials describe the White mafia killing of several black males.

Repeatedly, Tidyman describes Ben Buford, the only character in the book attempting to counter racism, as some type of insect (non-human). At one point, Ben Buford, SHAFT and Knox Parsons have a brawl over the details of the kidnapping. Tidyman has Buford label SHAFT as a "faggot cocksucker."

Norms in newsrooms across the United States are being upended thanks to deep polarization, a racial reckoning, and the pandemic. Hallmark journalistic traits like neutrality and objectivity are being redefined. Eric Deggans, TV critic for NPR, says it's impossible to be objective, and journalists have long been advocates for the status quo. “We've seen newspapers apologize for how they covered the Civil Rights Movement because they marginalized civil rights advocates." Still, today's challenges are unique. Newsrooms are grappling with generational change, the Me Too movement, and journalists who became oppositional following President Trump's "enemy of the people" comments. Deggans speaks with Joanne Lipman, former editor in chief for USA Today, and Vivian Schiller, executive director of Aspen Digital.

Sam and Emma host Carl Lindskoog, assistant professor of history at Raritan Valley Community College, to discuss his recent book Detain and Punish: Haitian Refugees and the World's Largest Immigration Detention System, to discuss his recent book Detain and Punish: Haitian Refugees and the World's Largest Immigration Detention System, on how the US's treatment of Haitian refugees worked as the blueprint for their immigration detention system today. Professor Lindskoog starts back in the ‘50s, around two decades into a period of intensely discriminatory immigration policy, banning immigration from practically anywhere that isn't in western Europe, when the US decides to suspect their policy of immigrant detention, building up to the 1965 decision to do away with their national origin quotas in the midsts of the Civil Rights Movement. Next, however, he covers the racist backlash to both the movement as a whole and these immigration policies as, beginning in the ‘70s, the US saw an influx in Haitian migrants that worried representatives (unlike anti-communist Cuban migrants who bolstered the US image of Cuba), spilling over in the summer of 1980, as the US responds by reasserting immigrant detention, building up their private-prison complex as they start incarcerating more and more folks, both foreign and native-born. He, Sam, and Emma dive into the policy of the Reagan administration that worked to bolster this, including quarantining and expelling Haitian refugees with HIV/AIDS, followed by George H.W. Bush's opening of the Guantanamo detention center, originally just for Haitian refugees, before touching on the neoliberal responses under Clinton, as he reinstalled President Aristide following a military coup under the requirement of subscription to neoliberal policy, and Obama, as he upheld detentions – save for a short period following the 2010 Earthquake. They wrap up the interview with a discussion on the history of organizing and direct action by Haitian refugees in jails and detention centers, before touching on Biden's failure to make our current immigration system even more slightly humane. And in the Fun Half: Emma and Sam cover Jeff Fortenberry's disillusionment with the CIA now that they're investigating him, Jennifer from Seattle talks radicalization in personal relationships, Dan from CA talks cancel culture in the MR chat, and Peter Doocy doesn't quite realize that COVID is an issue of public safety.

Robert Levering comes to Nonviolence Radio this week to talk to Stephanie Van Hook and Michael Nagler about the film “The Boys Who Said No!” and the powerful draft resistance movement that helped to end the Vietnam War. Robert is an executive producer of the film, a position he is well suited to as he himself was a draft resister in the 1960s. In the interview, we hear how Robert worked collectively to refuse the draft, and more, to stand up actively and nonviolently to an unjust and oppressive system …the draft sort of makes it us vs. the government. It's very frightening just individually to face the government and all the power it has. But the communities that we developed helped to give us the kind of strength that we really needed in order to do that confrontation. I know that I never would have – I don’t know what I would have done. I mean, you never can tell. But it made it really much, much easier to do something as part of a community rather than just simply doing it individually. Robert's discussion of his work in the 60s reveals how groups like those opposing the war in Vietnam came together with the Civil Rights Movement to create a power that finally ‘overwhelmed' the US government, pushing it to end the war and change some of its racist policies. We are seeing strong echoes of this kind of collaboration today, as shown in Michael's nonviolence report at the end of the show: diverse groups dedicated to nonviolence in many different forms, directed at many causes are coming together, joining hands and actively building a better world.

Growing up black in the 1940s, Katharine Carr Esters learned at an early age to stand up for herself. In this episode, she shares her memories of racial segregation and the struggle for dignity and respect. She recalls being taught by her father to “know who you are, and to be what you can be.” During the Jim Crow era, blacks in the South were expected to sit in the back of public buses behind a partition. Esters describes an altercation she had with a bus driver in 1946 and how her letter to the bus company led to a change. Before the Civil Rights Movement, black adults were not called Mr. or Mrs. by white people. Esters remembers insisting her mother be addressed as Mrs. by their bank in Kosciusko. Throughout her life, Esters has been an advocate for the marginalized in our society. She explains why it's important to treat each other respect, dignity, and fairness.

Are you DISSATISFIED with the Church?

Dissatisfied ChristiansAre you a Christian who is frustrated with the Church? If you are, you're not alone. More and more Christians are frustrated with the Church than ever.I recently had a conversation with a passionate follower of Jesus, evidenced by his many Christian tattoos. He even had some in biblical Hebrew, but I couldn't read it. I took Hebrew in Seminary, but that was a long time ago and I got a C.I asked him if he was a Christian and what church he went to. He didn't know I was a pastor, so that permitted him to be honest with me.He averted his eyes and shook his head and said, "Man, I'm done with the Church."I felt his frustration and his disappointment. He didn't have to say anything else. I knew what he was feeling.An uncomfortable prolonged beat of silence stretched out between us as searched for something encouraging to say. I'm usually not at a loss for words, but nothing wise and pithy came to me. When he finally reestablished eye contact with me, all I could do is nod my head in agreement and say, "Man, I know what you mean."I used to think that dissatisfaction with the Church was a sign of an individual's spiritual immaturity or religious consumerism. But not anymore. I'm realizing that the angsty dissatisfaction and frustration that many Christians (especially among Gen Y and Gen Z) feel about the Church is becoming normative.But we have to ask, "Is this a good thing?"Is it okay for a Christian to be dissatisfied and frustrated with the Church?Yes, of course, it's okay.Do you know how I know it's okay to be frustrated with the Church? The Head of the Church, our Lord Jesus Christ himself gets frustrated with the Church.In Revelations 2-3, Jesus speaks to the Seven Churches in Asia Minor. For 6 out of 7 of those churches, Jesus has harsh words of rebuke and correction for them. In essence, he says, "I'm not happy with you. If you don't change your ways, I'm going to shut you down."Currently today, I believe that the level of our dissatisfaction with the state of the Church is a huge problem. But the problem isn't that we are too dissatisfied with the Church. I believe that the real problem is that we are not dissatisfied enough.We have become comfortable with how things are. We are happy and content with the mess that the Church is in. Most Christians are just fine with the way things are in the Church even though we have drifted away from God's plan and purpose for us.If you're not disappointed with the Church, just look at what we've become known for. Ask anyone outside the Church what they think of us. What will they say?They will say that we are political, selfish, unloving, and care only about ourselves. They will say we are tribal, judgmental, hypocritical, power-hungry, and driven by greed. They will say we are people who are angry, combative, defensive, and who react out of fear. That we are known more for our passionate fight for our politics and culture war issues, and not the Gospel.This is not how it's supposed to be. We used to be known for our love, unity, and generosity. Reaching out to our neighbors. Caring for the needy. Advocating for the powerless. Welcoming the stranger. Loving our enemies, enduring persecution, and praying for those who persecute us.We were bold proclaimers of the saving message of the Gospel of Jesus. We were once salt and light. A city on a hill to guide the way for a lost and dying world. But now our salt has lost its saltiness.It saddens me that the Church today has become more associated with politics and conspiracy theories than the Gospel of Jesus. It's no wonder that we are becoming less and less relevant to the world God has called us to reach.Jesus asked, "If salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?"More Dissatisfaction, Not LessHow are we going to fix the mess we're in? You may not like my answer.I believe that, if we're going to dig ourselves out of this mess, we need faithful Christians to become more dissatisfied with the Church, not less.I want you to be bothered at how far we've fallen. I want you to be frustrated and grieve and how things are. I want you to get mad at what the Church has become.I see far too many Christians focusing on what's wrong with the world. They get mad and complain about the world, but they ignore what's wrong with us. I want us to take that passion and energy as we look at ourselves and how we need to change.I believe that no biblical, faithful Christian should be satisfied with the state of the Church today. I want to encourage you to be more dissatisfied with the Church, not less. But I want to make sure that your dissatisfaction is productive and not destruction.Two Kinds of DissatisfactionThere are two kinds of dissatisfaction. They may look the same at first glance, but that can't be more different. Sometimes it's hard to tell them apart, but one is good and healthy and the other is bad and destructive.The first type of dissatisfaction is "Productive Dissatisfaction." This is when you say, "Wow, this place is a mess. Let's tear it down so we can fix it and make it better."Imagine the Church is like an old house that you inherit from your grandparents. It's old and smells funny. It has a different ugly mismatched wallpaper in every room. There's termite damage, mold in the walls, faulty electrical wiring, and poisonous lead paint. But at least the asbestos glue is keeping the linoleum in place.Even so, the house has good bones with great potential. You've watched Chip and Joanna Gaines do more with less. So you say, "We got to tear out all that stuff so we can fix it and make it better." That's productive dissatisfaction.The second type of dissatisfaction is "Destructive Dissatisfaction." This is when you see the mess and say, "Let's tear it down and light it on fire!"Which type of dissatisfaction do you have? Productive or destructive? What do you have in your hands? Do you have a broom or a molotov cocktail?Signs of Productive DissatisfactionTo make things better, we need more Christians who are filled with healthy productive dissatisfaction. There's a lot of work to do. If you're ready to put down that molotov cocktail and pick up a broom, I have three suggestions for you.1) Make sure your expectations for the Church are biblical and healthy.Disappoint comes from having unmet expectations. You need to make sure that the expectations you have for the Church come from the Bible. Make sure that your expectations are not selfish, immature, or politically motivated. This isn't a matter of personal preference or opinion. You should expect the Church to be what the Bible says it should be.In Acts 2:40-42, the Bible describes the beautiful beginnings of the Church. It describes a loving community of people from diverse backgrounds who were radically changed by God. They were united by their love for each other and commitment to God's mission.They formed a unique community of trust, vulnerability, love, and support. Former enemies and political rivals became brothers and sisters in God's adopted family. They met together daily in the public square and welcomed each other into their homes. As my father-in-law would say, they gave each other "refrigerator rights."They gathered to study the teachings of Jesus. They ate and shared the bread and wine in remembrance of Jesus' death. They worshiped and praised God together. They joyfully sacrificed for each other. The Bible said they sold their possessions and gave the proceeds to anyone who had a need.And God blessed them. He presence with them in a mighty way. God was at work and they enjoyed favor with all the people. God used this newly formed adopted spiritual family to radically transform their community, and eventually the entire world.We today, the Church, are the direct spiritual descendants of that original family of faith. The bad news is that we have fallen so far from that description that it's hard to believe we have any connection with them at all.If you read the Bible and are frustrated with how short we have fallen from God's plan and design for us, then you're in good company. I share your frustration. I also believe that how things are in the Church today is not how Jesus intended it to be.The first step in reforming the Church is to make sure your expectations are biblical and healthy.2) Make sure your dissatisfaction is motivated by love and concern for the Church.Don't be a hater or a troll. Don't just stand outside and be a critic. Critics don't love what they are criticizing.I'm not saying that you can't say anything critical or challenging about the Church. Just make sure it's coming from a place of love and concern, and not from a critical heart.One of the New Testament Church's biggest critics was the Apostle Paul himself. He was hugely frustrated with the Church at different times. Many of his epistles were written out of frustration at how the Church was missing the mark.The most scathing letter Paul ever wrote was his first epistle to the Church in the city of Corinth. We call it 1 Corinthians. The Church in Corinth had lost its way. It fell into moral compromise and fell into false doctrine. Paul doesn't pull any punches and speaks to them very harshly. But it worked. They receive Paul's instructions and start to turn the church around.A little while later, Paul writes a follow-up letter (we call it 2 Corinthians). In this second letter, Paul softens his tone and apologizes for being so harsh with them earlier.He writes:For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you. (2 Corinthians 2:4)Paul was frustrated and dissatisfied with the Church at Corinth. He let his frustrations be known loudly and publicly. But, please notice, that his dissatisfaction was motivation out of his love, care, and concern for the Church. He said those harsh words out of "great distress and anguish of heart." Paul cried "many tears" as an expression of the depth of his love for them.The source of Paul's frustration is an example to us. His frustration was motivated by love.When you see the Church going astray, it's okay to be frustrated. As long as it's motivated from a place of love, care, and concern, go ahead and let your frustrations show. Just don't be a hater, a troll, or a critic. Critics don't what they are criticizing.Saint Augustine is a good example of this. During the 4th Century, during a time when the Church was going astray by merging power and identity with the Roman Empire, Saint Augustine valiantly lead a faithful remnant.Faithful Christians were appalled at the level of compromise and corruption in the Church in that era. They were justifiably dissatisfied and frustrated. Many thought that the Church was irredeemable.They complained, "The Church has become a whore! She has become a whore to the Roman Empire!"They wanted to tear down the whole thing and set it on fire. But not Saint Augustine. While he couldn't deny that the Church was becoming more and more corrupted with power and association with the political might of the Roman Empire, he argued for a more productive way forward.Saint Augustine is said to have replied, "The Church may be a whore, but she is my mother."Augustine couldn't deny that the Church was unhealthy and becoming more and more corrupt. But he loved the Church. He couldn't turn his back on her. He couldn't just tear it down and light it on fire.In essence, he said, "I know the Church is a mess, but I love her dearly. Let's figure out how we can fix it, not blow it up."The second step to reforming the Church is to make sure we are motivated by genuine love, care, and concern for the Church.3) Turn your dissatisfaction into a catalyst for change.If you're dissatisfied and frustrated with the Church, don't just complain. Don't just be a critic. Critics never change anything. Instead, allow your dissatisfaction to grow in your soul to become a catalyst for change.One of the ingredients necessary for any change is dissatisfaction. Dissatisfaction is the beginning of change. No change can happen unless you are sick and tired of how things are.As I stated earlier, I believe our problem is that we are not dissatisfied enough. Many of us are dissatisfied enough to complain, or maybe even get up and leave. But I see few Christians dissatisfied enough to make changes.This is how revolutions and reformations are born. They are birthed in the hearts of dissatisfied people who have had enough of the way things are that they finally decide to do something about it.This is how the Civil Rights Movement started. Rosa Parks was sick and tired of being treated as a second-class citizen, so she refused to go to the back of the bus. This is how the Protestant Reformation got started. Martin Luther was sick and tired of all the ways that the Church was becoming unfaithful and corrupt. He wrote a manifesto and detail 95 changes that the Church needed to make and he nailed his lengthy document to the front door of the largest church in town. That manifesto is known as the 95 Thesis became the spark that lit the fire that became the Protestant Reformation.Don't just be a complainer. Become a reformer. Allow your dissatisfaction to become a catalyst for change. Don't just talk about it. Be about it.This reminds me of the story of Nehemiah. He's one of my favorite people in the Bible. Nehemiah was the royal servant to the most powerful man in the world, the King of Babylon. He had a cushy job in the royal palace.Everything was great for Nehemiah. That is until he got a report about the dilapidated conditions of Jerusalem, God's Holy City. When he found out that Jerusalem was in ruins, its walls broken down and gates burned with fire, the Bible said he broke down and wept for days.This lead to a period of fasting, mourning, and prayer. Eventually, his dissatisfaction grew to the point that it was unbearable for him to do nothing about it. That's when he started making a plan to restore Jerusalem.From hundreds of miles away, Nehemiah architected a detailed plan on how he would rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. He calculated how much it would cost, how much lumber and supplies he would need. He thought through the process of getting permits. He decided that he needed security and a line of credit. Included in his plan was an estimate of how long this building project would take.When Nehemiah had the opportunity, he asked the King of Babylon for permission to leave his cushy job in the palace to go and rebuild Jerusalem. When the king asked him what this rebuilding project entailed, Nehemiah, show him the detailed plan he was working on.Nehemiah said, "King, this is how much this project is going to cost. Here is the materials list. This is how many men I'll need to take with me. And this is how long it's going to take. Can I go?"Impressed with Nehemiah's thorough plan, the king blessed Nehemiah's plan and even paid for the whole rebuilding project. When Nehemiah finally arrived in Jerusalem, he gathered up all the people living in the ruined city.He said to them:"You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace." (Nehemiah 2:17)How did the people respond?They replied, "Let us start rebuilding." So they began this good work.The restoration of Jerusalem started as a seed of sadness and dissatisfaction in Nehemiah's heart. It grew to become a catalyst to change. When the people saw Nehemiah's passion for change, it rubbed off on them. And they go to work.Three OptionsThings are bad right now for the Church. There's no denying it.What are we going to do about it?I think there are three options:Ignore it.Complain about it.Or try to fix it.If we're going to fix this mess, we first need passionate, committed Jesus-followers who are filled with dissatisfaction. But we need to make sure that our dissatisfaction is productive, and not destructive. We need a dissatisfaction that comes from biblical and healthy expectations for the Church. We need to make sure that our dissatisfaction is motivated by love and concern for the Church. And we need people who are committed enough to do more than complain but will roll up their sleeves and get to work.Things may be bad right now. You may be dissatisfied with how things are. The Church is a mess right now, so let's pick up a broom and get to work. We need you.

Both were featured in the Questlove documentary about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival. Abbey Lincoln started out as a seductive nightclub singer in the 1950s, but after meeting Max Roach, she started performing in a style influenced by modern jazz and the civil rights movement. She evolved into an introspective singer who wrote achingly beautiful songs about love and life. Max Roach was one of the inventors of modern jazz drumming. He helped formulate the language of bebop. In the early 1960s, he recorded some of the first jazz music inspired by the Civil Rights Movement.Also, John Powers reviews the PBS Masterpiece series 'Guilt.'
