Man killed during Minneapolis police arrest in 2020
Our American States The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020 sparked a cascade of state legislation affecting policing policy. There were more than 3,000 bills that were considered in legislatures, and more than 400 were signed into law. The legislation came from both sides of the aisle. For this podcast, we spoke with Rep. Leslie Herod, a Democract from Colorado, and Sen. Whitney Westerfield, a Republican from Kentucky. Herod discusses legislation she sponsored shortly after Floyd’s death that was one of the first pieces of legislation enacted in the nation. She also talks about how the death of Elijah McClain in Colorado galvanized efforts to pass legislation. Westerfield is a leader in criminal justice issues in Kentucky, where the death of Breonna Taylor helped spur action around no-knock warrants. He discusses how bringing all the parties together was critical to passing good legislation. Also on this episode is Amber Widgery, who tracks a number of criminal justice issues for NCSL. Amber talks about the trends in legislation, the bipartisan nature of the efforts in many places and the surprising fact that legislatures are addressing policies that affect law enforcement at the local level. She’s also putting together a session on this topic for NCSL’s Legislative Summit Nov. 3-5 in Tampa, Fla.

As many of us are getting used to opening up our lives again in the middle of a pandemic, we might start to feel different kinds of feelings and thoughts about how safe and comfortable we might feel. Being at the pub, cafe, theatre, cinema, meetings, conferences or protests now has a very different set of concerns or anxieties for many of us. Also over the last couple of years the protests around the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sarah Everard, and also the Kill the Bill protests have been a reminder to us that our capacity to feel safe and comfortable in public spaces has been extremely unfairly distributed in the modern era. And furthermore we maybe now have a greater awareness how people's experiences of systemic oppression might show up in people's bodies in the context of complex post traumatic stress disorder. So I thought it would be timely to talk about the body and to invite Kim Loliya onto the show to talk about her work as a therapist, particularly somatic therapy, and for us to learn more about how we might connect with our bodies and where this can be a necessary part of a broader politics of solidarity too.

For this special report we talk to Jon Ben-Menachem. Jon is a researcher and journalist, currently working on his PhD in Sociology at Columbia University, where he researches political economy and punishment. As a journalist he's published on policing, incarceration and austerity for The Appeal, Slate, Shadowproof, Current Affairs, Truthout and New York Daily News. Today we invite Jon on to discuss his latest piece “What Media Gets Wrong About Last Year's Uptick In Murders” which was published at Slate. There's been a deluge of local and national media copaganda pushing for more cops and increased police budgets since the George Floyd protests and calls to defund police and abolish police that came along with them. It's important to disrupt these copaganda narratives, and we thought Jon's piece is helpful in that effort. The "Special Report" is a new segment where we interview journalists, activists, academics and organizers on shorter pieces. These might be essays, articles, field reports direct from organizers and/or incarcerated people, short stories or even poems. These interviews will be typically shorter than our full episodes, ranging somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour and will have a limited focus. Our goal with these is to talk about current events and ways that people are analyzing and seeking to intervene in them. Sometimes - as with this episode - there will be contradictions raised that we aren't able to resolve neatly, but need to be grappled with. This is part of our effort to bring you all more content. We are both doing this full-time now and we hope to continue to bring you all about 4 of our full episodes monthly, but also sprinkle in about 2 of these special reports or smaller discussions each month as well. To support this work we are on a current pledge drive to hit 1,000 patrons and we're only 20 patrons away from that big goal as we publish this. So if you haven't become a patron yet, now is a great time to do so. And thank you to all of the people who have been supporting us along the way.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the criminal charges that may be in store for Steve Bannon. Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the Jan. 6 select committee, tells Joy, "Steve Bannon or anyone else can't flout the law and expect nothing to happen," after Bannon announced that he would not honor the subpoena served to him by the select committee. And, today in Pennsylvania, where Republicans are trying to obtain private personal information on all 7 million state voters for an investigation, Democratic Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed a motion to have the courts block them. Shapiro joins Joy in his first national interview since announcing his run for Pennsylvania governor on Wednesday. Next, we commemorate the 48th birthday of George Floyd, and examine how in the wake of his murder, Dr. Andrea Kane -- as the school superintendent in Queen Anne's county, Maryland -- used his tragic death and the subsequent calls for reform as an opportunity to start a conversation on racism within her community. She joins us on how these efforts led to her departure. Finally, Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving's anti-vaccine stance being compared to the heroic activism of the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali, is critiqued by Joy Reid in "The Absolute Worst." All this and more in this edition of TheReidOut on MSNBC.
Today on Boston Public Radio: Chuck Todd begins the show by talking about the possible effect of supply chain shortages on approval ratings of President Joe Biden as the holidays near. He also discusses what programs might have to give in order to pass Biden's spending plan. Todd is the moderator of “Meet the Press,” host of “Meet the Press Daily” on MSNBC and the political director for NBC News. Then, we ask listeners what they think Democrats should cut to pass Biden's infrastructure bill. Andrea Cabral updates listeners on the latest in the conviction of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for the Boston Marathon bombing. The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments this week as to whether Tsarnaev was properly sentenced to death, and whether he had a fair trial. Cabral also discusses a Boston Police officer back on duty after a suspension for bragging about hitting George Floyd protesters with his car. Cabral is the former Suffolk County sheriff and the former Massachusetts secretary of public safety. She is currently the CEO of the cannabis company Ascend. Then, we talk with listeners about their thoughts on police reform, and why they think efforts to change policing have faltered in the months since protests in the summer of 2020. Fiona Hill previews her memoir that came out this month, “There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century,” and weighs in on the similarities and differences between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Hill served as deputy assistant to the president and senior director for European and Russian affairs in the Trump administration from 2017 to 2019, and was witness in Donald Trump's first impeachment hearing. Jared Bowen rounds up the latest arts and culture happenings in the city, including the MFA's “Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories” exhibit, and Gregory Maguire's latest novel, “The Brides of Maracoor.” Bowen is GBH's executive arts editor and the host of Open Studio.
The Black Engagement Committee (BEC) of the Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP) has been active for several years organizing, getting out the vote and serving the needs of their community. Currently under new leadership, the BEC is organized to support Democratic legislative districts (LDs) in the county as never before.Co-chairs Karl Gentles and Pastor Warren Stewart are engaged in building partnerships in the LDs to increase Black precinct committee persons to help: increase voter registration and turnout, support the work and issues of the party, and develop Black candidates to win county and legislative seats. As former candidates themselves, Gentles and Stewart bring their experience, activism and commitment to go from “protest in the streets to power in political seats.”In this episode, they discuss the change in the political climate wrought by the murders of George Floyd and others and their strategies to impact future elections in Arizona with Black voters and candidates on the ballot.Turning Arizona Blue (TAB) the podcast is partnering with The Mule News, an online news service dedicated to Maricopa County Democratic politics.

This month, after causing an online stir with photos of his toddlers wearing anti-President Biden T-shirts on Instagram, country superstar Jason Aldean doubled down: “I will never apologize for my beliefs or my love for my family and country,” he wrote in a follow-up post.. A couple days later, he posted a news story to his 3.5 million followers about California Gov. Gavin Newsom instating coronavirus vaccine mandates in schools. “You gotta be kidding me! People in California should be outraged and people everywhere else better start standing up and speaking out NOW. This is not how America and being free works,” the caption stated. But in the past year and a half, country music fans have watched as many Nashville stars with large and influential platforms stayed silent in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in police custody, even as celebrities from every other corner of the entertainment industry weighed in on racial equity.

Today I talked to Michelle Caswell about her new book Urgent Archives: Enacting Liberatory Memory Work (Routledge, 2021). What is the place of archives in our society? In archival studies, an answer to this question often presents an idea of linear, progressive temporality. A common trope goes: We learn history to have a better future. That is why history, and archives as a site of historical evidence, is important. In her thoughtful, groundbreaking work, a feminist archival studies scholar Caswell challenges the white imaginary of linear, progressive time embedded in our conception of archives. Pointing out how community archives from different ethnic communities across the US present cyclical temporalities where oppressions repeat, Caswell emphasizes the importance of activating the archives for their liberatory potential in the present. Over a year has passed since the murder of George Floyd and the beginning of the global pandemic that has highlighted not only structural inequality, but also an ongoing material and symbolic annihilation of Black Americans. As Michelle Caswell argues in her book, imagining liberatory memory work is an urgent project that needs to happen in the now. In the introduction, Caswell begins with the question of the liberatory potential of community archives. Chapter 1 outlines the cyclical conception of time in critique of chronoviolence of white, dominant linear temporality. In chapter 2, Caswell draws from four focus groups to show how different ethnic groups use community archives to address repetitive oppressions by constructing corollary records. Chapter 3 focuses on her work with the South Asian American Digital Archives (SAADA) and the road to discovering the importance of liberatory activation. In Chapter 4, Caswell pushes back against the idea of archivists as passive technicians and repositions them as liberatory memory workers. In the conclusion, Liberation Now! Caswell emphasizes the need to disrupt the dominant narrative on future by embracing the joy of advocacy in the present. Urgent Archives will be an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in critically re-evaluating archives in academia and beyond. In the interview, Caswell recommends following two readings to the listeners: SAADA. Our Stories: An Introduction to South Asian America. Philadelphia: SAADA, 2021. "The Chronopolitics of Racial Time," Time & Society, Special Issue: The Social Life of Time, 29, no. 2 (May 2020): 297-317. Michelle Caswell is an Associate Professor in the Department of Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the co-founder of the South Asian American Digital Archive.

What founder, JP Moery, would have done differently if he could redo it all. Hello and welcome to JP Moery's Association Hustle Podcast. President of The Moery Company, JP's mission is to arm today's associations with insight and strategy to thrive and a progressively complex and competitive business landscape. 21st century associations must move forward with a little bit of hustle and revenue development at their core. Here's JP. If I could do it all over again here are 10 things that I would change. 1: I would have hired slower, fired faster. I always waited too long to hire somebody which put me into bind and forced me to make accommodations or settle. Sometimes I didn't take the time to make sure they were the right person when I hired them, which ultimately put us in a bad situation. Take the time to make sure they are a good fit. 2: I would have confronted performance issues much quicker. As a leader I valued being liked too much. The employees and the company would have been better if I would have confronted things faster or been more intentional about it. 3: Be smart with family discounts. I had several friends in the association space and early on, I really appreciated the work. You work very hard on projects for friends or contacts in the industry. You want to build your brand, you want to build reputation, and you end up spending more time on them. However, I didn't price it the same. I worked harder on them, and I priced them lower for my friends. Looking back that was probably not the best business decision in the world. 4: Embrace thought leadership quicker for the association marketplace. Podcasting videos accelerated our business and our brand so fast. I would have done that a lot faster. 5: Know when to say no. I took every job, every piece of work I could get, even if I knew it was a stinker. I always had this default that if we were busy things would be okay. The downside is I burdened my staff with association partners that weren't collaborative, and that was bad for us. It probably affected our morale. In hindsight, I knew some of these weren't good projects, but I sold them and I gave him to somebody else to do and that was wrong. 6: Stop treating associations as a homogenous group of businesses. I always said you've met one association, you've met one association. But in reality, I didn't always practice that. There are some businesses that aren't well run, not led effectively, and frankly, sometimes not even honest. They don't have integrity. Just like every other industry, we're not special. We're not special because we're nonprofit. I should have gotten out of the deals when I could. 7: I would have had more executive coaching or help. I would have relied on my advisory board, or I would have relied on friends in the association space. They could have given me advice on how to navigate different things. You don't have all the answers as a leader, but sometimes I think we're afraid to admit it. We always want to have the answer for our staff and our clients. 8: Listen more, talk less. If I could have flipped the ratio of the times I spent talking and spin it to listening, we would have been a lot better. 9: I would have ramped up The Moery Company sales much faster. If you've listened to my journey, I was the lead salesperson for a number of years for the company, and it really just wasn't efficient or effective. I realized that once we brought our own sales team in, they were able to cover much more ground. They had more margin in their deals that they put together. 10: Be more intentional about diversity. We launched a business leadership diversity program with local high schools after the George Floyd tragedy. It was too late; I had a blind spot on this. I regret not letting some different perspectives in place in our company and with our advisory board.
“Companies are really recognizing that this concept of greenwashing, and these bold ambitious assertions that they can't back up, that's no longer, that's not transparency. That is risk, and that exposing an organization to very concrete reputational and other risks….I think it's all about transparency driving trust, but it has to be credible, it has to be authentic and it has to be meaningful.” Kristen Sullivan, Deloitte Sustainability Compliance on Electric Ladies Podcast A new report from the Journal Nature Climate Change reports that 85% of the world's population is negatively affected by climate change. With that report and the big UN Climate Conference known as COP26 coming up in days – and President Biden's infrastructure bills moving through Congress – we have been focusing on risk and the changing role of companies in society. So, what do companies really think about their role today and how to report on it, called ESG reporting for environment, social and governance? Listen to Kristen Sullivan, head of Deloitte's Sustainability and Supply Chain Social Compliance Services talk about it with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson in this important and engaging interview. The management consulting firms have a unique perspective on this, because they analyze trends and advise companies across industries. You'll hear about: The need companies have to define the attributes of ESG that drive performance “in a data-driven way” so they can “evaluate long term value”? The critical role of transparency, primarily to build trust, and how and why companies can struggle with it. The impact of the rapid increased prioritizing of ESG from a “nice to have” to “must have,” especially over the past couple of years due to the confluence of covid, George Floyd, and climate change. How companies now have a broader definition of what drives risk including “financial risk, operational risk, reputational risk” and how they can systematically integrate those factors to find seize opportunities. Plus, insightful career advice …. “And I think that especially through a broader, sort of ESG-purpose lens, that establishing a competency in a business context (is important in your career), whether that's marketing or finance or supply chain or operations, whatever it is, and layering on a differentiated perspective – whether it's climate risk, whether it's societal consideration – to really be able to deliver on that traditional competence but at such a higher level, and through that value-enhancing lens.” Kristen Sullivan on the Electric Ladies podcast Read Joan's related Forbes articles here too.

This week on the Finding Fertile Ground podcast, I interview Tracey Osborne from Dallas, Georgia. After bouncing around in various locations during her childhood, Tracey got sexually assaulted by her live-in boyfriend the night of her senior prom. It was not her last sexual assault, and soon she found herself in and out of several domestic abuse situations and getting married several times. Tracey shares how she identified her fear of abandonment and broke the cycle of abuse. She also realized she had an addictive personality, so she gave up alcohol.Tracey bounced around in a wide variety of jobs while parenting her four daughters. She found her passion to work as a trauma release coach, but she found it extremely difficult to charge women money to help them with their healing. Now she has found her fertile ground by founding the Global Association for Trauma Recovery, guiding survivors on their journey to move past their past and become the empowered women they are supposed to be. The association is dedicated to providing low-to-no-cost trauma support for survivors and their families, aiming to facilitate change by spreading trauma-related awareness to create a trauma-informed world.Tracey also hosts the Releasing Trauma Podcast, supporting women in their healing and bringing them the tools they need to create lasting self-transformation. She wants to make the world a better place, so her girls never have to go through what she has survived.Next week on the Companies That Care podcast, I interview Mallorie Dunn of Smart Glamour in New York City, an ethically made, inclusively sized, customizable clothing line that focuses on accessibility (size + price) and accurate representation.If you enjoyed this podcast, please give us a rating and subscribe to hear our next episode.

This week's guest Michael McElroy is an actor, singer, musical director, educator, and founder of the Tony award-winning Broadway Inspirational Voices, the multi-racial gospel choir, 'united in changing lives through the power of music and service.'' In this shorter than normal interview, Michael explains how being immersed in the fusion of gospel music, musical theatre, and R&B as a child developed his love and appreciation of music. He also discusses how his Grandmother instilled in him a lifelong commitment to service and giving back. Although acutely aware of racism, Michael felt insulted; being surrounded by black excellence helped him develop a personal sense of limitless possibilities for anything if prepared to invest in the work. Michael discusses his journey through education, developing his sense of identity, and how he resolved to overcome the barriers he encountered, to reinforce his self-belief, and conviction to succeed. We discuss how serendipity played a pivotal part in landing his first Broadway role in Miss Saigon. Michael explains what led him to create the social impact organization, Broadway Inspirational Voices, to create an impact and welcoming space that has evolved over 25 years to become a platform where artists change lives through the power of music. Michael also discusses how he and his fellow artists responded to the pandemic's lockdown and the murders of George Floyd and other victims of race crimes by creating virtual outreach programs for Broadway inspirational Voices and Covenant House. Michael discusses how Broadway has been responding to the last eighteen months, addressing its institutional inequities to become more inclusive, diverse, and accessible by embracing New Deal proposed through Musicians United For Social Equity and Black Theatre United. Finally, Michael describes the steps he is taking to empower faculty and students in DE&I and create systemic change through his new role as Chair at the University of Michigan's Department of Musical Theatre.

The President of the United States had been preparing for the moment for months, to claim he had won an election he actually lost. Early in the morning of November 4th, Donald Trump took to the TV cameras at the White House and said that despite early projections that Joe Biden had a chance to pull ahead in key states, he had indeed won reelection. With the now-famous phrase, "Frankly, we did win this election," Trump became the first president in history to claim that votes cast and the count itself was wrong. As soon as Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Michael Bender heard that phrase, he knew it had at least an outside chance of becoming the title of his account of the 2020 campaign.Bender's book, "Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost," describes behind-the-scenes moments as the president goes from seeming to have an advantage in the 2020 race to again playing catch-up. Bender describes Trump's responses to a global pandemic, the death of George Floyd, social justice marches and to fighting for his own life. Unlike the 2016 election, when much seemed to go Donald Trump's way, 2020 sees almost every political hit come against him. Bender also recaps the surreal experience of being summoned to the White House for a one-on-one interview with the president.Michael Bender is on Twitter at twitter.com/michaelcbenderHis book is published by Twelve Books: https://www.twelvebooks.com/titles/michael-c-bender/frankly-we-did-win-this-election/9781538734803/Support our show at patreon.com/axelbankhistory**A portion of every contribution is given to a charity for children's literacy**"Axelbank Reports History and Today" can be found on social media at twitter.com/axelbankhistoryinstagram.com/axelbankhistoryfacebook.com/axelbankhistory

Paul Holdengräber is joined by the brilliant Melvin Gibbs on this two part episode of The Quarantine Tapes. They discuss the release of Melvin's latest EP, 4 + 1 equals 5 for May 25, five tracks created in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd in May 2020. Paul and Melvin dig into Melvin's experience visiting the site of George Floyd's death and the incredible statement he wrote to accompany the album.Melvin and Paul go on to dig deep into Melvin's career and the many amazing musicians he's worked with and been inspired by over the years. They talk about Body Meπa, his latest collaboration with Greg Fox, Grey McMurray, and previous Quarantine Tapes guest Sasha Frere-Jones. In a fascinating episode, their conversation touches on the history of jazz, the connection between protest and music, and Melvin's tentative hopes for the future. Melvin Gibbs is a Grammy nominated composer, musician, artist, and writer, born, raised, and currently based in Brooklyn, N.Y. He has been called "the greatest bassist in the world" by Time Out New York magazine and was the 2019 winner of JazzTimes Magazine's Critics Poll in the category: Electric Bass.
After the murder of George Floyd, racial inequality became a focus of public conversation and talk turned to how to support Black-owned businesses. Black Americans are about 13 percent of the U.S. population — but own only 2 percent of small businesses with more than one employee. And, during the pandemic, Black-owned businesses have been more likely to struggle. To address the gaps, nonprofit organizations, banks and corporations pledged to increase support for entrepreneurs of color. Magazines and other media compiled lists to steer socially conscious consumers to Black-owned restaurants and stores. MPR News host Angela Davis talks with Black business leaders about whether that support showed up and whether it made a difference. Guests: Mateo Mackbee is chef and co-owner with his partner Erin Lucas of Krewe, a New Orleans-inspired restaurant that opened May 2020 in St. Joseph, Minn. Wen Muenyi is founder of HercLéon, a textile, clothing and bedding company based in St. Paul. Anisha Murphy is the founder of Just Law LLC, which is part of the Black Business Support Collective.

For transracial adoptees and people of colour, the past 18 months have felt like an emotional gauntlet. At least, they have for us. From the murder of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, which saw a surge of the Black Lives Matter movement, to rising anti-Asian racism and the Atlanta shootings, to the disparate impacts of COVID-19 due to systemic racism and chronic underfunding in public health, there's been a lot to reckon with. To keep educating ourselves, and in the hopes of continuing and deepening some of our earlier conversations on race and the fight for racial justice, we reached out to our friend, Korean American adoptee Rebecca Kinney. Rebecca is an Associate Professor in the School of Cultural and Critical Studies and American Culture Studies at Bowling Green State University, Ohio. She is the author of numerous articles and the book Beautiful Wasteland: The Rise of Detroit as America's Postindustrial Frontier (University of Minnesota Press, 2016). She is a Fulbright Scholar Korea (2021-2022) and currently lives in Seoul. This is a thought-provoking, in-depth conversation that traverses the historical, personal, and political. First, she starts with a 20-minute primer on Asian American racial formation and settler colonialism - kind of like an audio lecture. Then Rebecca talks about finding her own ethnic identity as a Korean adoptee from the white working class suburbs of Detroit, before we discuss the barriers to solidarity amongst Asian Americans and POCs, and how we might confront anti-black racism as Asian adoptees. Finally, Rebecca talks about living in Korea and her current Fulbright research, before we end with an extended random question segment. We learned a lot from Rebecca and we hope you do too.

The widespread protests in the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor marked a new chapter in the struggle for Black liberation. What would constitute Black liberation? Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor says it's about self-determination. “Can we make decisions free of economic coercion? Can we make decisions that are truly free? That to me is what liberation would be. I know that it's not something that Black people can achieve alone. Black liberation is bound up with human liberation. On a purely mathematical basis, Black people drift between 13 and 14% of the population. We can't get free alone. So, this is also about really trying to examine the connections between the subjugation of Black people, and how that relates to a wider web of subjugation of other people, including White people, in our society.”
It has been more than a year since the killing of George Floyd sparked cries for police reform and even defunding. But it has all but stalled on the national level with congressional talks falling apart last month. The timing coincides with the FBI reporting a historic rise in murder rates. Mary C. Curtis speaks with author and professor David Kennedy, director of the National Network for Safe Communities, to understand why and what the next steps should be. Also, 'Equal Time' checks in on COVID-19 vaccine equity with Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, who leads President Biden's health equity task force.

This week, Senate Democrats officially introduced the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which was approved by the House of Representatives several months ago. This comes amid a year in which 19 states have passed laws making it harder for citizens to vote, according to a recent report. Sherrilyn Ifill, the President of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, joined Errol to talk about the decades-long battle over voting rights and explain the current legislation. She also discussed voter suppression efforts and talked about the push to desegregate public schools, including in New York City. And she weighed in on the debate over police reform.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman discuss the legacy of Fannie Lou Hamer and the fundamentally racist institution of the Democratic Party, the value of political education in movements, and the need for confidence in the poor and working class to build and lead its own movements.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Arnold August, a Montreal-based writer, journalist, lecturer, and author of several books including "Cuba U.S. Relations: Obama and Beyond," to discuss planned protests in Cuba and potential US involvement in planning them, the historical significance of the dates of the proposed national strike and protests, and the clues that hint at this being another attempt at a color revolution.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Taminisha John, professor at Clark Atlanta University and Caribbean regional analyst to discuss the unveiling of sculptures meant to honor the Windrush generation in the UK in the context of recent violent deportations of the people in this generation, the racist and xenophobic immigration policies that migrants from Caribbean and African countries face in the UK, and the exploitation of migrant workers in the UK.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Jon Jeter, award-winning journalist and foreign correspondent, radio and television producer, Bluesologist and Decolonizer, and author of the book “Flat Broke in the Free Market: How Globalization Fleeced Working People” to discuss the Drug Enforcement Administration's surveillance of protests against the killing of George Floyd in the summer of 2020 and the lack of confidence in the state, the conversation around reparations and how they should be paid, and how historical and contemporary trauma contributes to cynicism about system change and Black liberation.
