Jarvis Houston, the Organizing and Political Director of Sister District. Jarvis Houston has ten years of advocacy and campaign experience at the local, state, and national levels. He is a lifelong organizer and a proud graduate of Howard University. With armchair analysts portending a dark upcoming decade for Democrats, Jarvis speaks to a positive outcome of the past elections: the shift in political representation across a country and how the political climate is changing for people of color. Election night saw historic wins down ballot for candidates of color: Michelle Wu in Boston, Aftab Pureval in Cincinnati, Eric Adams in New York, and more! These victories are key to progress, but as America continues to shift demographically and Democrats stare down the barrel of the midterms it's clear: demographics do not dictate electoral wins. Jarvis discusses how recent victories are a major step forward for inclusive representation, and explain what it's going to take for Democrats to mobilize voters—demographics aside—ahead of midterms.Nancy: Website, Instagram, Twitter Welcome to Progressive Opinions of Color (POC), a podcast that creates space for people of color in conversations about economics, politics, and culture.

"Many of the same Black evangelicals who tell us God sees the heart of a person and not their color, when it comes to “Jesus Is King”, are the same people who want us to support them as they stand toe-to-toe with White evangelicals who refuse to acknowledge White supremacy. Meanwhile, I'm remembering from my bible study days there's something in the good book about the instability of a double minded man. The same racist theology and ideologies that prop up TBN, GMA and Dove Awards ground “Jesus is King”. How are you trying to cut a thing from the root and replant it at the same time? It's important Black Christians name the racism present in White evangelical spaces. As more Black Christians who have been in and aligned with those spaces have their awakening, we'll support them. Inherent in that support is truth telling and accountability. It requires we defend Black folks when White folks try it and it requires we set the record straight with each other when Black folks try it, too. It means saying the time has come for Christian media spaces to confess their complicity in our harm and it means telling Kirk that TBN, GMA and Dove “edited the African-American experience” long before they began editing his speeches. It means saying we can't support projects that use a colorblind theology to silence the voices of the marginalized, whether that project is produced by the Gospel Music Association or G.O.O.D. Music. As brothers, Kirk vigorously defends Ye and calls his Sunday Services “his medicine”. At some point, I hope the two of them realize the same medicine Kanye needed to tell Howard University not to stand in the same place the next time “slave nets” fall is the same medicine TBN, GMA and the Dove Awards need to operate as if the murders of Black people at the hands of racist White police officers is urban legend." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support
Image: John Biggers, Band of Angels: Weaving the Seventh Word, 1992-93 According to the Dogon, “in the beginning before anything existed there was the Supreme Being, Amma. Amma existed in the form of an egg divided into four parts by four bones [the clavicles], which were joined together. Apart from the egg, nothing existed, for Amma rested on nothing. The four arts of the egg represented the four elements: water, air, fire, and Earth. So, the fundamental elements already existed in the egg in embryo form. In the egg Amma had designed the world before it was created” . Ultimately, Amma created the world through the creation of the signs and likewise will destroy it through the destruction of the signs …” . We share this creation story, in part, for a number of reasons, but primarily because it is aligned with the assertion in Chukwunyere Kamalu's, The Word at Face Value: An Abridged Account of Dogon cosmology, that “mainstream scholarship on the cosmological world of the Dogon of Mail in West Africa, has become a battleground over what an African people can and cannot know” . Dr. Nubia Kia asserts that, “myths in Africa are similar to what Joseph Campbell calls “living myths.” He uses living myths to distinguish them from the connotative usage of myth meaning “a lie.” Living myths signifies the opposite of the connotative construct. J.J. Bacofen argues that the origins of history can only be revealed through myth since in myth “lies the beginning of all development.” Dr. Kia, quoting W.T. Stevenson, further explains the primacy of mythological discourse. According to Stevenson, “the essential character of our personal and social lives are shaped by myth, or it is by the power of particular myths which determine by way of determining our fundamental presuppositions, the way we shape our cultural, social, political, and economic lives. We do nothing of significance which is not informed by myth in a fundamental way, and the more significant our act, the more this is true. It is the symbols within the context of myth which give rise to all thought [Kia, A River of Prophecy: Constructing a Sacred History of African Americans].Mythic symbolism attempts to explain the spiritual nature of peoples and their inseparable connection to a universal order. Therefore, if someone wishes to pervert an idea, the most effective means is to reverse the sacred symbols or icons associated with the idea or ideas [Kia, A River of Prophecy: Constructing a Sacred History of African Americans]. Today, AWNP's Tasneem Siddiqui sits down with Dr. Nubia Kia, to explore the relationship between myth & its continuities in sacred + secret histories. Nubia Kai received a Ph.D. in African historical literature and film from Howard University, an MA degree in African Languages and Literature from the University of Wisconsin. Her work has been published in Black Scholar; Black World; Essence Magazine; Black American Literature Forum; Catalyst; Obsidian; Moving Out, Journal of Black Poetry; Left Curve; Journal of African Literature Association, Black Camera: International Film Journal; Journal of African American History, to name a few. Her book, Kuma Malinke Historiography: Sundiata Keita to Almamy Samori Toure, is an extensive study of the mythology, epics, poetry, and expository narratives of the Mali Empire. She has been an ardent researcher of comparative religion, anthropology, mythology, and Africana studies for over thirty years. Professor Kai is also a poet, novelist, and playwright who has received a number of awards, including two National Endowment for the Arts Awards, six DC Commission on the Arts Awards, and the Larry Neal Writers Competition. She has two collections of poetry, Peace of My Mind and Solos, a collection of fables, The Sweetest Berry on the Bush, and an historical novel, I Spread My Wings And I Fly.

Oncotarget published "Host targeted antiviral (HTA): functional inhibitor compounds of scaffold protein RACK1 inhibit herpes simplex virus proliferation" which reported that due to the small number of molecular targets in viruses and the rapid evolution of viral genes, it is very challenging to develop specific antiviral drugs. In addition, HIV-1 and Herpes Simplex virus are known to use IRES as well. By utilizing the crystal structure of the RACK1A protein from the model plant Arabidopsis and using a structure based drug design method, dozens of small compounds were identified that could potentially bind to the experimentally determined functional site of the RACK1A protein. Dr. Sivanesan Dakshanamurthy from The Georgetown University Medical Center, Dr. Qiyi Tang from The Howard University College of Medicine and Dr. Hemayet Ullah from Howard University said, "With the small number of molecular targets in viruses and the rapid evolution of viral genes, it is very challenging to develop specific antiviral drugs."

“No one offered me those positions. I had to work for them. I had to advocate for them. I had to ask for them.” -Kara Adams, Director of Guest Experience for the Portland Trail Blazers Do not miss out on my conversation with Kara. She is real and showed up to give y'all advice to help you take your career to the next level. She is a woman who has ALWAYS gone after what she wants. She hasn't been afraid to shoot her shot.

Another Monday brings another incredible guest. I am a very proud graduate of Ball State University, but I was able to get to speak with one of the most recognizable institutions among Historically Black Colleges & Universities, the 12th President of Morehouse College, Dr. David A. Thomas. This past week, almost every Historically Black College & University President and Chancellor signed a letter to both Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell regarding the funding needed and required to continue to be beacons of hope into the world. But, they consistently have not been getting the financial support that other colleges and universities get from both state and federal government. With the Build Back Better Plan, HBCU's will have $10 billion invested into them, and locally, Dr. Thomas & I discussed the plan's benefit, what it would look like for its institution, and with the headlines that Howard University have had recently, the relationship that Morehouse administration has with its own student body.

Why dozens of students at Howard University spent part of their fall semester living in tents. And, omicron comes to the United States.Read more:Mold, mice, water damage and no WiFi. Those have been some of the conditions in Howard University's housing units in Washington. This fall, the conditions led to protests that lasted more than 30 days. Some students even slept in tents on the historically Black university's campus. But such conditions aren't new. For years, students and graduates have complained about building conditions at a school that's often called “the Mecca.”Many students blamed university president Wayne A.I. Frederick. But some students say Corvias, a private company that manages 60 percent of the housing on Howard's campus, is the real culprit. Schools often hire companies to handle dining halls and custodial services because they don't get enough funding from federal, state and local governments. Education reporter Lauren Lumpkin and producer Jordan-Marie Smith report on the relationship between universities and the private companies managing their housing — and the students who say those relationships need to end.Plus later in the show, national health reporter Dan Diamond explains what President Biden's administration plans to do about the omicron variant of the coronavirus.If you value the journalism you hear in this podcast, please subscribe to The Washington Post.

Dr. Gee continues to lead the conversation on the role of Black people in American history. On this episode, he talks with Kellie Carter Jackson about how she teaches Black history and the discourse around race in education happening in America right now. Carter Jackson breaks down Critical Race Theory (CRT) and how we actually view history, whether it is through facts or memory. Kellie Carter Jackson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Africana Studies at Wellesley College. She was also the 2019-2020 Newhouse Faculty Fellow for the Center of the Humanities at Wellesley College. Carter Jackson's research focuses on slavery and the abolitionists, violence as a political discourse, historical film, and black women's history. She earned her B.A at her beloved Howard University and her Ph.D from Columbia University working with the esteemed historian Eric Foner. Her book, Force & Freedom: Black Abolitionists and the Politics of Violence (University of Pennsylvania Press), examines the conditions that led some black abolitionists to believe slavery might only be abolished by violent force. Force and Freedom was a finalist for the Frederick Douglass Book Prize, winner of the James H. Broussard Best First Book Prize given by SHEAR (Society for Historians of the Early American Republic) and a finalist for the Museum of African American History (MAAH) Stone Book Prize Award for 2019. The Washington Post listed Force and Freedom as one of 13 books to read on the history of Black America for those who really want to learn. Her interview, “A History of Violent Protest” on Slate's What's Next podcast was listed as one of the best of 2020. Carter Jackson is also co-editor of Reconsidering Roots: Race, Politics, & Memory (Athens: University of Georgia Press).
