The Chris Voss Show Podcast - Lincoln and the Fight for Peace by John Avlon A groundbreaking, revelatory history of Abraham Lincoln's plan to secure a just and lasting peace after the Civil War—a vision that inspired future presidents as well as the world's most famous peacemakers, including Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a story of war and peace, race and reconciliation. As the tide of the Civil War turned in the spring of 1865, Abraham Lincoln took a dangerous two-week trip to visit the troops on the front lines accompanied by his young son, seeing combat up close, meeting liberated slaves in the ruins of Richmond, and comforting wounded Union and Confederate soldiers. The power of Lincoln's personal example in the closing days of the war offers a portrait of a peacemaker. He did not demonize people he disagreed with. He used humor, logic, and scripture to depolarize bitter debates. Balancing moral courage with moderation, Lincoln believed that decency could be the most practical form of politics, but he understood that people were more inclined to listen to reason when greeted from a position of strength. Ulysses S. Grant's famously generous terms of surrender to General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox that April were a direct expression of the president's belief that a soft peace should follow a hard war. While his assassination sent the country careening off course, Lincoln's vision would be vindicated long after his death, inspiring future generations in their own quests to secure a just and lasting peace. As US General Lucius Clay, architect of the post-WWII German occupation, said when asked what guided his decisions: “I tried to think of the kind of occupation the South would have had if Abraham Lincoln had lived.” Lincoln and the Fight for Peace reveals how Lincoln's character informed his commitment to unconditional surrender followed by a magnanimous peace. Even during the Civil War, surrounded by reactionaries and radicals, he refused to back down from his belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. But he also understood that peace needs to be waged with as much intensity as war. Lincoln's plan to win the peace is his unfinished symphony, but in its existing notes, we can find an anthem that can begin to bridge our divisions today.

His research lead to the creation of Sequence Multi-Vitamins specifically designed to enhance African-American health. His book, Patient-Centered Care for African-Americans is a trailblazer in providing guidance to doctors, medical school students and hospital residents. A second edition is already being prepared.

But first we've got some headlines we're gonna touch on. What's going on Sharon Well, back on 5/02/63 more than 700 Black children peacefully protested racial segregation in Birmingham, Alabama, as part of the Children's Crusade launched by MLK Jr and SCLC, beginning a movement that sparked widely-publicized police brutality that shocked the nation and spurred major civil rights advances.Though hundreds were assaulted, arrested, and transported to jail in school buses and paddy wagons, the children refused to relent their peaceful demonstration.The next day the policy commish Bull Connor ordered officers to spray them with fire hoses, hit them with batons and turn policy dogs on them. The US Department of Justice got involved. Finally by 5/10/22, Birmingham was desegregated. But the school districk announced the kids would be suspended or expelled. It took federal court to reverse that. Well 5/4 this week marked the 57th anniversary of Willie Mays breaking the home run record with his 512th home run. He was playing for the San Francisco Giants at the time (boo). One of the greatest to ever do it, Willie Mays. Here recently did you hear about JJ Reddick shutting down Mad Dog on First Take?

The two reminisce over the first episode of the BWM podcast where Dr. Hill was Ken's very first guest. Then, they have a lively reaction to the Grove City College report that condemns Critical Race Theory and disassociates from chapel speaker, Dr. Jemar Tisbey. Dr. Hill expresses his weariness over invitations to debate the realities of racism in America - he's done with those fruitless conversations. Theon explains the engagement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Bell Hooks, Margaret Thatcher and others to explore values and ventures that lead to the common good in local communities. He has developed a focus on local black-owned businesses to expand markets and reach, creating jobs and careers in community implementing his work at the Copenhagen Business School. He shares the influence of Cornell West, James Baldwin, Malcolm X and Eddie Glaude, Jr., who has become his personal mentor and friend. Dr. Hill admits his concern that democracy is slipping away in America, unable to embrace pluralism. In view of the Supreme Court's attempt to reverse Roe v. Wade, the two discuss the problems of constitutional "originalism." There is a cloud of witnesses we need to hear.

Think back on an encounter with an adult overreacting to a situation. Were you caught off-guard; did you feel uncomfortable? A psychiatrist friend of mine shared a phrase he often communicated to his staff: "When you see a patient overreact or act out, always remember there's a story behind that behavior." Adults don't lose self-control in a vacuum – there's a build-up and a story behind their behavior. When caregivers find themselves in the unpleasant predicament of engaging an individual with frenetic or hyper behavior, it's helpful to remember that the behavior is bigger than the moment. Reminding ourselves that “there's a story” enables us to speak to the deeper issues driving the outburst – which often requires assurance rather than reason. Arguing with a longtime wound is futile. Caring for that wound – and all its symptoms – remains a more effective response. As caregivers, we encounter those panicking about pocket-sized problems. Outbursts at a temporary or minor problem are rooted in a long journey that could stretch back a lifetime. Detaching from the immediate eruption allows us to better understand and address the volcanic turbulence behind the explosion. However, It starts with us remembering, "If it's hysterical, it's historical." “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Armed with his wits, his camera, and occasionally his service .45, Harry plunges headfirst into the seamier underbelly of L.A. society — tangling with racists, leftists, blackmailers, gangsters, zealots and lovers, all in the hope of finding something resembling justice for his friend.  Gary Phillips's web page for his new novel is https://gdphillips.com/portfolio/one-shot-harry/.Our April Crime Fiction Picks of the Month are ONE-SHOT HARRY, THE FUGUTIVE COLOURS by Nancy Bilyeau (http://www.nancybilyeau.com/), and SHADOW HOUSE by Anna Downs (https://anna-downes.com/).Diverse Voices Book Review Social Media:Facebook - @diversevoicesbookreviewInstagram - @diverse_voices_book_reviewTwitter - @diversebookshayEmail: hbh@diversevoicesbookreview.comWeb site: https://diversevoicesbookreview.wordpress.com/

Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. brilliantly proclaimed:   “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there "is" such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.”   What he knew and exemplified is simply the notion that the time for change is now.   There's never the guarantee of tomorrow. There's never an opportunity more viable than the imagined one today. There's never a table more perfectly set for the future than the now.    IN THIS WEEK'S EPISODE, it's time for a little check in and some deeper conversation around the notion of CHANGE.   Over the last twenty years I've been fortunate to work with and coach some of the world's most incredible human beings.   I've found that each of us seek significance, whether it be internally or externally. We crave an existence of meaning as opposed to non-impact, and we seek truth in times of humility.   In our lives we'll be faced with multiple options for change.   You have today; this exact moment, to begin the most brilliant transformation of your life. Will you honor the gift?   Join me in the conversation, and if you like it, leave a comment or rating on the show. Share it on social.

The Exodus—the story of the Israelites' freedom from Egyptian slavery 3,000 years ago—is the ultimate story of freedom. And not just for Jews. But for people seeking liberation from subjugation in so many other times and places. Including here in America.  From the founding fathers, to abolitionists like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglas, to presidents like Lincoln and leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, the themes and symbols and moral truths of the Exodus story have been at the core of how Americans seeking freedom from tyranny have seen themselves. One could argue that without the Exodus there might be no America. To make that case on the eve of Passover—and to take us on a tour of the way the Exodus has been used throughout American history—Rabbi Meir Soloveichik, who teaches at Yeshiva University and helms the oldest synagogue in the United States.  You don't need to be a believer to love this episode.

Today I am discussing the disappearances of Christopher Dansby and Shane Walker from New York City in 1989. These incidents are so similar that putting them together just makes sense. Both were black, male, toddlers, taken from The Martin Luther King Jr. Park 3 months apart, around the same time of day, on the same day of the week. Not only that, but their families also lived in the same building of the Martin Luther King Jr. Towers just 2 floors apart from each other. And perhaps most chilling of all, both toddlers were last seen playing with the same set of children before they went missing. Christopher Dansby went missing from The Martin Luther King Jr playground in New York City on May 18th, 1989, when he was just 2 years old. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, floral print shirt, blue jeans, and green and white sneakers. Christopher is a black male with black hair and brown eyes. He has a figure 8 scar on his thigh. He would be in his early 30's now. Shane Walker went missing from the same park on August 10th, 1989, when he was just 19 months old. He was last seen wearing a blue and white shirt, light blue pants, and white LA gear sneakers. Shane is a black male with black hair and brown eyes. He has a scar on his chin and a birthmark shaped like a liver on his shoulder. He would also be in his early 30's now.   Anyone with information about the disappearance of either child is urged to contact The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1800-843-5678 or the New York City Police Department at 212-694-7781.
