Hello podcast listeners, I'm Barbara Morgan and you're listening to Austin Film Festival's On Story. This week on On Story we'll hear from award-winning screenwriter, playwright, producer and director, Kemp Powers. Kemp Powers is a Golden Globe-award winning, playwright, producer and director. In 2020 he co-directed and wrote the Academy Award Winning Pixar animated feature, Soul. He later wrote the critically acclaimed Amazon feature, One Night In Miami, which he adapted from his 2013 award-winning stage play. He was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2021 Academy Awards. The film is a fictional account of one incredible night where icons Muhammad Ali, Malcom X, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown gathered to discuss their roles in the Civil Rights Movment of the 60s. I spoke with Kemp Powers about his journey as a writer at a year round Austin Film Festival event that was co-presented with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Educational Initiatives.

The life story of Alberta Odell Jones is a fascinating one, and the story of her death remains a bit of a mystery. Alberta was the first black woman to pass the Kentucky Bar exam, as well as Muhammed Ali's first lawyer, and 56 years ago this week her body was found in the Ohio River after dying under pretty suspicious circumstances. We explore some theories about what might have happened to Alberta on that night in 1964, and some highlights from her 34 years of life.

These sons and daughters are following in their fathers' footsteps while making their own name. Her dad, two-time Hall of Famer Rick Flair, is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, and Charlotte Flair is living up to his legacy. The college volleyball player turned WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) star has been a trailblazer for women in WWE, with nine championships to her name. “The Queen” was also the first WWE star to grace the pages of ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue. You can't have a list of famous fathers and their kids without mentioning the ultimate trio – the Manning crew. Dad, Archie Manning, was an NFL (National Football League) quarterback for 15 years. His quarterback sons Peyton and Eli have both won two Super Bowls. Their third brother Cooper is ‘only' a partner in a law firm and a TV personality. Cooper's son, Arch, is keeping the family name alive as an impressive high school football prospect. You'll not likely be able to miss the 6'6” Vashti Cunningham in next month's Summer Olympics. The high jumper is the daughter of Hall of Fame quarterback turned pastor Randall Cunningham. This will be the second Olympics for Vashti, who competed in Rio. She has long discussed how her dad is her rock as she competes at the highest levels. Laila Ali had big shoes to fill when she followed in her dad's footsteps. Her father was the one and only - the “World's Greatest” boxer Muhammed Ali. A boxing champion herself, she's also a television personality and fitness guru who has appeared on shows such as American Gladiator and Dancing With The Stars. But she doesn't stop there. Laila has her own line of seasonings (including the G.O.A.T seasoning), a skincare line and her own clothing line at Nordstrom. The future of baseball lies in the hands of the 22-year-old offspring of two baseball (MLB - Major League Baseball) legends. Vladimir Guerrero Jr, the son of Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero, follows in his father's footsteps, leading the league in home runs and all-star voting. Then there's San Diego Padres Fernando Tatis Jr (son of former MLB player Fernando Tatis). At a young age, he has already been on the cover of the “MLB The Show” video game, landed his own Gatorade commercial and is the leading vote-getter amongst shortstops for the all-star game.

This week's Misfit Entrepreneur is Greg Salsburg. Here's the first line from his online bio: Greg Salsburg has been ostracized by society since birth and became a disappointment to his family and all those who came in contact shortly thereafter. His freakish nature, early adoption of donning loud footwear and love for all things “Seuss'ian” made him a pariah on the playground. Intrigued? How could you not be? Greg is the CEO and Founder of STiR Communications. STiR-communications is a business consultancy firm that leverages the ubiquitous channels of distribution to advance clients messages and bottom line objectives. Greg's success has spanned decades and is truly impressive working with everyone from Four Seasons to JP Morgan and even having Muhammed Ali and The New York Yankees as clients. He's won countless awards and has been a 20 under 20 recipient, 30 under 30 recipient, and 40 under 40 recipient. How's that for consistency. Although his forward facing role is directing STiR-communications strategic and creative forces, it's his transformational work with business leaders behind the scenes; through his mindful practice and real word acumen, that has earned him the nickname the “Consigliere Consultant.” But, for Greg it was not a straight up rise to success. He was a multi-millionaire who lost every penny and had to re-invent himself. He did this by embracing humility and seeking wisdom. It's this journey and what he learned and put into practice to create his success 2.0 that I want him to share with you today. Greg started off in news and sports in New York and with NBC TV and sports. He transitioned from there into marketing because it just wasn't fulfilling. He met someone who was starting a business called Café Hollywood which was later changed to Planet Hollywood and became the worldwide director of marketing and public relations. This changed the trajectory of his life. Greg had a unique ability to communicate, and it shined through. It was a leap of faith to go from journalism to marketing at a global level. He was always very impressed with those that had an entrepreneurial spirit and could build and create something from nothing vs. seeing it and reporting on it from the sidelines. This eventually led to him creating his own marketing and PR company after his success and learning journey at Planet Hollywood. At one point you had everything and were living a rockstar lifestyle, then lost it all. What happened and was there a moment or an epiphany that changed everything? When Greg was at Planet Hollywood, it was more than a restaurant – it like running a Hollywood studio and he was surrounded with stars and agents every day. He went on to work in Motown and run 6 Flags Amusement. He was in the right place at the right time, but felt he had a bit of imposter syndrome. He grew up with professionals that had very little failure, but not much risk taking. When he started to taste his first bit of adversity, he crumbled. He didn't know how to handle it emotionally. He went from not having any failures, to having a larger one and the good money after bad to try and save it, but he was blinded by arrogance from his previous success. He went from great wealth to losing it all. Now, through the journey he has been on, he has gained it back “20 fold in all areas of life.” What did you learn on the journey and what did it teach you? People tend to believe success is bi-fricated into power and wealth. The truth is that is a 3-legged stool and the greatest component is the “emotional balance” needed alongside the other two areas. If you are not in tune emotionally, it doesn't matter how much power or wealth you have, it will never be enough. Your EQ cannot be out of balance as you cannot operate in a peaceful manner. EQ is misunderstood and not thought about that much. Define it for us and then tell us more about the 3 areas we need to understand. When Greg was living the rockstar life, it seemingly was good and more was better. But, it was almost an angry position that it took to get it and maintain it. Emotions were never talked about and it was about the “grind.” There was a feeling that if you worked more and slept less, you were better or more successful. Any emotional talk was dismissed and repressed. It was not “manly” to talk about it as it meant weakness. Greg new this was wrong. He could feel it to be the missing piece, so he started to learn and study more about emotion and consciousness. He watched the towers drop on 9/11 from his balcony, he realized that the world would never be the same and how fragile life was and it was this realization that spurred him to change and help others in a bigger way with life mission. He pursued who he knew he should be. Consciousness is the key to living a good life and being your best self. How do the 3 areas intersect with EQ? At the 21 min mark, Greg talks about “PE Ratio and what it really means and its impact.” It's best to listen. With the pandemic, it caused people to have a reset, but the truth is that we've had a pandemic all along that has been widely ignored, which is an emotional disservice to ourselves and those around us. We have ignored the internal workings of ourselves. It is real and measurable and we need to do better. VUCA- Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. This is part of life in all areas, but how do we deal with it better? We offset volatility with a vision. Vision changes volatility. Understanding changes uncertainty and makes it easier. Take the time to truly understand. Clarity will help with the complexity. You need agility to offset ambiguity. ¾ of all health issues are caused from stress. People are not tuning into the areas of consciousness they need to deal with stress in a better way and leaders need to foster this. Feelings/emotions are personal to each person, but understanding them and learning to work with the better is key to a better life and leaders must take time to understand help people in this area and they have to start with doing this themselves in order to be effective. The CEO needs to also be the Chief Emotional Officer. One of the things I like about your messaging is the blend being bold and audacious with a hint of sarcasm and comedy – is that the secret to standing out in today's world? It comes from being authentic. Authentic is what helps you standout. You must find your honesty and authenticity and move it away from the center to the edges where the most excitement is. Explain the significance of why STiR is spelled the way it is… Greg wanted to be the opposite and deliver a different product and stir things up in the marketplace But he did not want to make it about “I,” but “WE.” So he made sure the “I” was a lot smaller in the name because it's not about him. What are the elements of a great communication strategy? A great strategy is not a one-size fits all. The companies that have the best strategies are not trying to be like the others in their marketplace. Companies that stand for something and have a mission and weave that into everything in a deeper, more connected way with a smaller, devoted tribe win. Those that really tell a story and remove the hypocrisy of business. The medium (humor, seriousness, etc.) will be different for each one, but it all comes down to emotion and tapping into it. Any company really doing it well? It was different pre and post pandemic. One that is doing well is Danny Meyer. They are doing an amazing job in hospitality post pandemic. Hospitality was hit particularly hard during the pandemic. Danny stood up for his people and go out and explain publicly why it was so important to get help for the industry and not lose the vitality and backbone it provides to the American economy. He was also on the front line in NYC helping businesses with way to keep going and stay in business. He believes people matter, caring matters, and showcases it throughout his restaurant group. When the chips were done, he put profits aside for people. It is conscious leadership at its best What is the changing dynamic of business and important to understand post-pandemic? Retail has accelerated at least a decade in some ways to a demise, but others adapted in big ways where they had not or were not willing to do so. Consumers now have the power. The workers have much more of a say and much more power. It's not a top-down approach anymore. With the ability to work from anywhere and now the proof that it works, the talent pool is now far great for businesses. But, it is also a much great flexibility for workers and consumers. The means leaders must be in tune with the areas that matter most with the people they deal with on a regular basis or they will lose them. Best Quote: You must find your honesty and authenticity and move it away from the center to the edges where the most excitement is. Greg's Misfit 3: Be a go-giver, not a go-getter. Your mind must be stronger than your feelings. You must hustle and work smart, but don't just simply be grinding or you'll be left with dust.

Before we begin with the topic of today's show (shout out to Ricky from Philly for the suggestion!), you'll hear about Wael's experience of opening up Kinetic Racquet Club in Delray Beach, Florida, and why he went with a multiple-sport model instead of opening a club dedicated purely to squash. As you have probably guessed from the title, this episode focuses on the greatest sportsmen and women of all time. Wael and the hosts share their opinions on the people who have revolutionized the sports of golf, tennis, soccer, basketball and baseball, and some points of contention arise around Usain Bolt's level of recognizability, and Diego Maradona's level of integrity. Then, of course, the discussion swings to the greatest players of all time in the greatest game of all time. Wael also shares some inside information about a few players he has had personal dealings with, and how squash has changed over the years. To end, Wael explains why he decided to write Ready, Set, Squash! and the impact that he hopes it will have. Key Points From This Episode: Conor's experience of appendicitis.

How Tiger Woods changed the sport of golf. Michael Jordan's worldwide and long enduring influence. Statistics which highlight Wayne Gretsky's dominance in hockey. Deigo Maradona's transformative effect on the world of soccer (and PJ's tainted view). The hosts differing views on Usain Bolt's recognizability. Pele's impressive achievements, which earned him a spot as one of PJ's picks for today. Muhammed Ali's impact on the world, inside and out of the ring. Roger Federer as the torch carrier for tennis. Tom Brady; multiple reasons why he was chosen by all the hosts as one of their top three. Characteristics of Wael's picks for the best male and best female squash players. A discussion around Jahangir Khan's style of playing, who PJ has seen live. Heather McKay's phenomenal career; only dropping two games in a 16-year period! How the game of squash differs now, compared to when Wael was playing professionally. The person Wael most dreaded playing against. Players who Conor and Bill think have changed the game of squash, and why. Squash; the person who transitioned the game from amateur to professional, and the impact he had on Wael's career. Why Wael decided to write Ready, Set, Squash!, what he hopes the book will achieve, who it is aimed at, and where you can find it. Tweetables: “The idea was to try to get kids to get through a lot of other sports before they switch to squash.” — Wael El Hindi [0:08:44] “Having a mixture of racquet sports involved, that you could get them excited again for another week of training for squash again.” — Wael El Hindi [0:10:39] “To me [Usain Bolt] is just pure talent, and the way that he used his body to break that record was just something that changed the world.” — Wael El Hindi [0:20:44] “In my era it was more about the tactics than the physicality. Now it's obviously a mixture of both.” — Wael El Hindi [0:44:24] “I wanted to share some of the information that helped me break down things during my lessons.” — Wael El Hindi [0:54:35] Links Mentioned in Today's Episode: Wael El Hindi on LinkedIn Wael El Hindi on Instagram Ready, Set, Squash!

If you have been listening to our podcast, you will know that we've uncovered that if we want to improve our social and emotional skills, and experience success in our work and personal lives, it all begins with an understanding of our brain. Our goal with this podcast is to bring the most current neuroscience research to you and make it applicable in your life whether you are a teacher in the classroom or using these ideas to improve productivity and results in your workplace. The idea is that these strategies will give you a new angle and provide you with a new way of looking at learning, with the brain in mind. As I am researching and learning new ideas, I'm also implementing them myself, and making connections to past speakers, so that we can all benefit from the research that is emerging in this new field of educational neuroscience. The Importance of The Foundational Skills: Literacy and Mathematics Which brings us to this week's Brain Fact Friday and the connections I made while recording episode #136[i] with Lois Letchford, and her son who failed first grade in 1994 when testing revealed he could only read 10 words, had no strengths and a low IQ and was clearly struggling with his academics in his early years. Thank goodness his Mother figured out that he needed to learn how to read with different learning strategies that you can learn about in episode #136, and see how her son defied the odds he was given at an early age and graduated from Oxford University with his Ph.D. What would have happened to Nicholas Letchford if he didn't have such a happy ending to his story? If he did not find a different way to build those foundational skills that he needed for literacy achievement? I remembered a webinar I prepared for the educational publisher, Voyager Sopris Learning in 2018 on “Nine Brain-Based Strategies to Skyrocket Literacy Achievement”[ii] and in the introduction to this webinar, I talk about the U.S. statistics that emphasize the importance of our children learning to read proficiently by 3rd grade. Did you know that: 2/3 of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. Over 70% of America's inmates cannot read above a 4th grade level. 1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read at all. Students who don't read proficiently by the 3rd grade are 4 times likelier to drop out of school. Nearly 85% of the juveniles who face trial in the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate, proving that there is a close relationship between illiteracy and crime. More than 60% of all inmates are functionally illiterate. And these shocking statistics lead to high drop-out rates, low graduation rates and college completion, illiteracy, incarceration, and welfare, proving that when a student is struggling with their reading, there is so much more at stake than what meets the eye. Then I began researching for episode #138 with Dr. Daniel Ansari, a professor, and Canada Research Chair[iii] in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning in the Department of Psychology and the Brain in Mind Institute[iv] at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario where he heads the Numerical Cognition Laboratory[v] and I learned from Dr. Ansari that in addition to the importance of developing these foundational reading skills, he emphasized the importance of developing the foundational skills in numeracy and math saying that “low numeracy skills is associated with physical illness, depression and incarceration”[vi] and even that “students with poor math skills were likely to default on their mortgage”[vii] later in life. This builds a clear case for the need for intervention if a student is struggling with reading or math in their early years. For this week's Brain Fact Friday, I am sure you have heard of the term dyslexia for students who have difficulty with reading, problems with spelling and mispronunciation of words, but did you know there was a term like this for those who have specific difficulties learning mathematics? Dyscalculia: The Math Learning Disability Dyscalculia: “is a math learning disability that impairs an individual's ability to learn number-related concepts, perform accurate math calculations, reason and problem solve, and perform other basic math skills”[viii] and usually “co-occurs with dyslexia.”[ix] I will dive deeper into this brain-based disorder on my interview with Dr. Ansari next week, but until then, if you want to learn more about recognizing the signs and symptoms of dyscalculia, with engaging and fun strategies to help your students or children learn mathematics, you can learn more with these resources below. To learn more about Dyscalculia, watch the video with Dr. Ansari here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRJS-jeZ7Is You will learn: What is Dyscalculia?[x] Areas of difficulty (seeing how numbers fit together, counting, calculating, recalling math facts, using concepts like less than, greater than, reading a clock, working with money, not able to count backwards reliably, tendency not to notice patterns, inability to manage time in daily life). Strategies to help students learn: Using manipulatives for counting, number lines and other visual tools to help solve problems and provide students with extra time so they can organize their thinking. Educational Companies: Like ETA Cuisenaire (now Hand2Mind)[xi] who have created what they call “Cuisenaire Rods[xii]” to help students learn math in a more fun and enjoyable way. Remember that students who have learning challenges like dyslexia with reading, or dyscalculia with math, can be just as successful in their life, future, and careers as those who do not have these challenges. Just ask Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, John Lennon, Muhammed Ali, Steven Spielberg, Henry Winkler, Tom Cruise, Whoopi Goldberg, Walt Disney, Jay Leno and Keira Knightly, who all grew up with dyslexia and it was noted that Bill Gates, Henry Winkler, Cher, Mary Tyler Moore, and Benjamin Franklin also had dyscalculia. Like we saw in episode #136 with Lois Letchford's son Nicholas, children can be extremely successful in their life and future, if they are given the learning strategies that they need to help them to succeed whether it's with learning to read, or with mathematics. REVIEW OF THIS WEEK'S BRAIN FACT FRIDAY: Dyscalculia: “is a common math learning disability that impairs an individual's ability to learn number-related concepts, perform accurate math calculations, reason and problem solve, and perform other basic math skills”[xiii] and usually “co-occurs with dyslexia.”[xiv] Stay tuned for episode #138 with Dr. Daniel Ansari, who I know will open our eyes with new connections with the neuroscience of learning. See you next week.

This week on Black on Black Cinema, the crew returns to introduce the next film, "One Night in Miami," that tells the story of four Black icons (Malcolm X, Muhammed Ali, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown) hanging out one night to discuss their roles in the Black cultural upheaval of the 1960s. The random topic this week is just that, a grab bag of suggested topics from our audience in which we cover our lives after one year of COVID, Derrick Jaxn, Lil Nas X, and more.
Kenny and Mike discuss and spot faith elements in the film One Night in Miami, directed by Regina King. Written by Kemp Powers and based on his play, the film stars Eli Goree, Kinglsey Ben-Adir, Aldis Hodge, and Leslie Odom Jr. who was nominated for an Academy Award for Supporting Actor. The film is an historical fiction narrative about 4 of the most famous black leaders of the time, Cassius Clay, soon to become Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke, gathering together on February 25th 1964. the night Clay became the World Heavy Weight Boxing Champion. Each of the four are on the precipice of changes in their lives that mirror the social, political, and economic changes that the United States will soon experience. Faith Notes: The faith to answer God's call to change: As with Abram (Genesis 12) and the first Disciples (The Gospels and Acts) who were called to leave their homes and families and other converts to the early Christian church, God calls followers to change and even defy family custom and tradition if necessary (Luke 14:25-26.) Whether the call is to personal changes in living one's life according to the desire of God and way of the Kingdom of God,or drastic, public changes that significantly alters the arc of life, responding to God's call requires faith. Ultimately one must exercise faith to answer God's call to live as Kingdom People rather than the known comfort of worldly ways of being and power. The Parable of the Talents and faith to employ skills given by God (Matthew 25:14-30): Does one use the talents God has given in Godly ways or does one bury them and pursue personal, sometimes more profitable and comfortable ways that lend to an easier life. The Recognition that God does not give talent to play it safe and remain in one's comfort Zone requires faith. The Importance and Place of Community: Faith in God is intended to be experienced in the midst of community. While one's faith and relationship with God is personal, it is also intened to be expereinced in communithy with other persons of faith. Faith is not to be private. Godly Community offers support, strength, as well as accountablitity. While the first two aspects of community are well known and accepted, the third is often overlooked and forgotten. (Matthew 18:16-17 and Paul's Epistles) The tribes and Nation of Israel and the depiction of the Church as well as the Trinitarian God is communal. The Place, Purpose and Power of story to lead to understanding and unity even in the midst of conflict. The people of God are a people of Story, God's story of salvation. One Night in Miami recieved 3 Academy Award Nominations: Best Supporting Role (Leslie Odom Jr.), Best Adapted Screenplay (Kemp Powers), Best Original Song (Leslie Odom Jr. and Sam Ashworth)

THE HEART OF A CHAMPIONLegendary sports icon, Olympic champion and Hall of Famer, philanthropist, bestselling author, television personality, ringside analyst and longtime face of Skechers' popular Relaxed Fit collections, Sugar Ray Leonard has established a legacy that epitomizes boxing and invokes the reverence of a champion. Leonard's illustrious career outside of the ring merits like admiration, as a vanguard in the cultural movement that has brought the sport of boxing front and center today; Leonard also helms the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation which celebrates its 12th anniversary this May, committed to funding life changing research for pediatric type 1 & type 2 diabetes, and helping children build early healthy habits. Having learned to box at the young age of 14, Leonard's celebrated career includes three National Golden Gloves titles, two Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) championships and the 1975 Pan-American Games crown. After winning a gold medal in boxing at the 1976 Olympic games, he turned professional as a last ditch effort to help his family defer mounting medical bills incurred from father's illness. Blinding speed, tremendous power and palpable charm quickly made Leonard a media favorite, dubbed early on by the late Howard Cosell as the “new Muhammed Ali.” At the age of 20 (1977), Leonard won his first professional fight, only setting the stage for a collection of the most memorable fights in all of boxing history. He went on to defeat some of the greatest boxers of the modern era, from Wilfred Benetiz to Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler, from whom Leonard won the world middleweight title. During his 20-year professional career, Leonard also won world titles in the welterweight, junior middleweight, super middleweight, and light heavyweight divisions— the first boxer to win world titles in five different weight classes.In 2011, Leonard published his first autobiography (Viking Books) THE BIG FIGHT: My Life In and Out of the Ring. In the inspiring autobiography, the boxing legend vulnerably confronts his greatest competitor: himself. Sugar Ray Leonard's raw and uplifting memoir reveals in intimate detail for the first time the complex human who waged his own personal battle with depression, rage, addiction and greed, that lay behind the champion. Leonard's charismatic personality and expert ring knowledge led to a successful career as a television broadcaster for NBC, ABC, FOX, HBO and ESPN, also featured as the international commentator for the record-breaking Mayweather vs. McGregor fight. Other television credits include three consecutive seasons as host and mentor in the Emmy-nominated “The Contender,” and a fan-favorite contestant on ABC's still reigning competition series, “Dancing with the Stars.” Now, Leonard joins the DAZN broadcast team, the live and on-demand sports streaming platform, providing ringside analysis for Matchroom Boxing. On the silver screen, Leonard appeared in the critically-acclaimed Paramount Pictures film The Fighter, also expertly consulting for DreamWorks and Walt Disney Pictures' on Hugh Jackman's Real Steel. Perhaps most importantly, some of Leonard's most impactful work is yet to be done. With a deep calling towards and passion for humanity, Leonard has always been devoted to his community and to helping those in need. In establishing The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation in 2009, Leonard and his wife, Bernadette took changing the world into their own capable hands. Since its inception a decade ago, the foundation has funded countless research projects and offered life changing patient care for children living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, the foundation is also committed to helping children lead healthier lives through diet and exercise, equipping them with the tools to be successful in health later on. Leonard also lends his time to Habitat for Humanity, serves as co-chair for the Ambassadors of Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and remains the international chairman of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for a Cure. Leonard has four children and lives in Southern California with his wife, Bernadette.
