Gerard, General Authority Seventy of The Church, and student Tyce Hipps talk with Boyd about what they are learning.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Just a head's up that in this episode, the guys talk about FLDS (and LDS) prophets taking on child brides. The guys start out expressing some frustrations about their preoccupation with sex. Joe questions whether it was brought up as much as it feels like it was, but he still thinks the effect is that it feels like it was brought up all the time. The guys are still bummed that they can't get gay married in the LDS temple yet (ps- they're not gay, which makes them think they have a greater chance of it happening). Joe talks about watching Keep Sweet Pray and Obey (2022) on Netflix. Joe realizes that he's not breaking any new ground, but he wants to point out that there are some pretty big similarities between Jeff Warren and JS. Smith tries his impression from FG, it's not a pleasant character. Joe teases a youtube video about an upcoming chapter. The video features John BTW, and someone else that Joe mistakes for Elohim. Easy mistake? Smith is excited about The Rehearsal (2022) which is a Nathan Fielder series streaming on HBO. The guys talk about some of their favorite moments from Nathan For You (2013) which was on comedy central. It can be pretty painful to watch, but there is a heart in there somewhere. It's quite a mini love-fest for NF. What do the guys do during the break? Stare. Joe visits the corrections department about Meshach Taylor. The guys take a minute to mock the idea that the BOM is an historical record for the Jewish people. Smith remembers a news story about Rusty donating a pretty large chunk of money to the NAACP. Smith gets a little confused (or maybe Joe's confused) about letters. Jacob comes in hot in this chapter, even though he sounds a lot like Nephi, and/or JS. Joe tries to gross out the listener with nursing and licking sounds. Joe was distracted by a cicada outside of his window but he didn't lose a chance to tell this praying mantis dad joke. Smith helps elevate everyone to the idea of the true order of praying mantis. Smith points out how Nephi (JS) is being shitty about how easy it is to understand Isaiah from the OT. Are you not being all-the-way obedient to JS's God? What do you expect, love??? God (JS) makes some pretty terrifying threats in this chapter. Joe has a suggestion, like a BOJ-level suggestion, for how the lord can make us drunk on our own blood.

A refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa and recent graduate of Millersville University, was forced out of his home in 2002 because of political warfare in Africa. Cedrick Kazadi lived in a refugee camp with his family from the age of two to sixteen and suffered trauma and hardships there. Upon resettling in Philadelphia and later in Lancaster, Kazadi overcame past struggles, adjusted to American society, and graduated high school and college on time with honors. During his time in college, Kazadi rose to be the President of the NAACP chapter at Millersville University after wrestling to overcome identity issues, language, and societal barriers. Ultimately, Kazadi found the value in his unique story and heritage, in a world where he said he initially felt like an outsider. He said one of the things that helped him to achieve against all odds, was a belief that his parents instilled in him at an early age: being second is not good enough. “Yes, there were days that were dark, and it didn't look like things were going to get better,” said Kazadi. “But at the end of the day I was just pushing and knowing that things could change.” Kazadi said he considers himself a beacon of light for those with similar journeys following his footsteps.Support WITF: https://www.witf.org/support/give-now/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Kamala Harris heads to Atlantic City and receives a less than excited greeting from the NAACP's annual meeting. Biden's back bencher economics advisor spits out a word salad almost as dumb as the White House Press Secretary who also too her turn. Hear how they define a healthy economy and who they think currently sits on the Supreme Court. A cost of living adjustment to Social Security has Stigall and chief economist Steve Moore talking about the government role in retirement and how we could better fix the system. And RNC Director of Strategic Communications Gates McGavick sorts through the politics of RINO and Never-Trump Republicans trying to monkey around in Republican primaries and in some cases actually help Democrats.
Could a successful coup happen in the US? The ongoing Congressional hearings into the events of January 6 show that just a handful of election officials in several key states stood between Donald Trump and the overturning of the 2020 elections. While the insurrection unfolded, many Americans watched in shock, believing nothing like this had ever happened in United States history. But it has happened before — more than a century ago in Wilmington, North Carolina when an armed mob removed a democratically-elected government by force, and turned a majority-Black town into a citadel of white supremacy. In this episode, we look at the parallels between that coup and the events in DC and visit the rural county of Columbus in the south west of North Carolina where a self-described former Oath Keeper acquired a massive arsenal of decommissioned military hardware in 2018 soon after taking office after a contested election. Laura also meets the residents and leaders from across the state who are clear that the future of multi-racial democracy in America is being decided in out-of-the way towns like theirs.

"Your Growth Mindset Defines Your Perceptions & Your Actions"“Your will to succeed remains one of your greatest assets.”Clifton-Taulbert He is best known for his books Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored and Eight Habits of the Heart: Embracing the Values that Build Strong Communities.According to Clifton L. Taulbert, noted author and entrepreneur businessman, he could have failed had he not encountered community builders and entrepreneurial thinkers early on in his life. Taulbert was born on the Mississippi Delta during the era of legal segregation where he completed his secondary education. Though opportunities were few and barriers were plentiful, Taulbert managed to dream of being successful, not knowing the shape that success would take. Today Taulbert is the President and CEO of the Freemount Corporation (a human capital development company) serving clients nationally and internationally-Fortune 500 Companies, small businesses, federal agencies, professional organizations, community colleges and K-12 leadership. Additionally, entrepreneur Taulbert is the President and CEO of Roots Java Coffee-an African-American owned national coffee brand, importing coffee from Africa. To pass his life lessons along, Taulbert shares his entrepreneurial journey with others as a Thrive15.com mentor.He is a Generational Bridge of Segregated Times to Integrated Times Today.In "The Invitation," Clifton Taulbert returns to the themes of "Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored," his award-winning book and the source of a major motion picture. This new memoir chronicles Taulbert's transformative experience of a supper invitation to a former plantation house in Allendale, South Carolina, where the successful adult confronts his childhood memories and wrestles with the legacies of slavery and segregation that demand to be acknowledged in his present circumstances.Transported back to a setting that looks and feels like the cotton fields and shotgun shacks of his childhood, Taulbert finds himself expected to cross racial barriers that no "colored" man could have broached without dire consequences. "The Invitation" is the story of the man and the little boy inside him wrestling with a past they both know so well, and of stepping into a future that is still being determined.Taulbert has authored thirteen books, several of which are foundational to his consulting philosophy: Eight Habits of the Heart and Who Owns the Ice House-Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur [Who Owns the Ice House is part of a Kauffman Foundation sponsored education initiative to expose the impact of the entrepreneurial mindset at all levels] and more recently, Shift Your Thinking: Win Where You Stand and The Invitation-living beyond the lingering lessons of race and place. Taulbert's Eight Habits has become foundational to his work on leveraging community as an asset in the workplace, and garnered him an invitation to address members of the United States Supreme Court as a personal guest of former Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O'Connor.Clifton L. Taulbert is a trustee of the University of Tulsa has been recognized international by the Sales and Marketing Academy of Achievement, the Library of Congress, the NAACP, Rotary International as a Paul Harris Fellow and has been a recipient of the Jewish Humanitarian of the Year Award and the Richard Wright Literary Award.

A big hello from Raleigh, North Carolina. For this SOLO episode, I want to address an important question, but it's not something discussed widely. That's right, today's question is how to improve your emotional intelligence. In this episode, I will answer questions like: What is emotional intelligence? Why is it important? What can you do to improve it? So, what is emotional intelligence, also known as “EQ”? Here is my own definition: EQ is the ability to see other people's points of view and make an effort to modify your actions to reach a resolution during conflicts or disagreements. It's a more business-setting definition. Here is a definition from our BFF, Google: EQ is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. So, possessing a high EQ allows someone to be able to communicate with others from an empathetic perspective and defuse conflict in a positive way. Once you understand the definition, it's easy to see the benefits of having a high EQ. It can help you: - Build better personal relationships with others - Defuse conflicts and find compromises - Enhance team morale - Be a better version of yourself How can you increase your EQ? Work on listening intently It's not about hearing what others say, it's about listening earnestly and attentively. Sometimes there are underlying messages that others try to communicate, but they are either too polite to say things bluntly or unable to find the right words to explain their points of view. You need to listen carefully. The best way to be sure you understand is to paraphrase what you've heard back to them. Use words such as “Ok, let me try to understand…”, “Here is my understanding…”, and “Let me paraphrase…” By regurgitating, you subconsciously open up your mind a bit, and your brain takes a mental note of a completely different opinion. At the same time, you show others not only that you are willing to listen, but that you “understand” them. The willingness to listen is a way to show compassion and empathy. Listening intently is the first requisite to improving your emotional intelligence. Walk a mile in someone else's shoes Yesterday, I watched a 2019 movie called The Best of Enemies on Netflix; the Taraji Henson and Sam Rockwell film is based on a true story that happened in Durham, NC, in 1971. An unlikely friendship was forged between Civil Rights Activist Ann Atwater and local Ku Klux Klan leader CP Ellis. Honestly, the Rotten Tomatoes review is only 52% and the audience score is 76%, so take that with a grain of salt, but I think the message of the film is useful to our discussion today. The backdrop of the story is that a Black elementary school was caught on fire, leaving students with nowhere to learn. The city council made a finding that the school was still usable which was not true so NAACP helped to file a lawsuit and asked for the students to be allowed to temporarily attend the local white school while the fire-damaged facilities were being rebuilt. Rather than the judge making a decision, he decided to bring proven mediation expert Bill Riddick to help the town come to an agreement about what should happen. Bill used an approach called charrette which invites everyone to have their say. He asked Ann and CP to co-chair the charrette, and through the open discussions, they narrowed down the issues they needed to discuss. The townspeople were broken down into different groups to brainstorm and hammer out different resolution points. Then, they would regroup as a whole each night for the wrap-up. They also selected 10 people, 5 people from each side, for what they called the Senate. The Senate would vote on all resolutions on the final night of the charrette. Many things happened during the course of the film to shift CP's mindset, but a pivotal moment came when he took a visit to the fire-damaged school in the summer, typically a season of leisure for children, where Black students were still attending school to try and make up for the lost time. It was then that he began to have a real change of heart. Spoiler alert: He cast a pivotal vote for the resolution of school integration. At the end of the movie, you can see the real Ann Atwater and CP Ellis sharing their own stories. Walking in someone else's shoes always has some profound impact on all of us whether we agree with that person's point of view or not. You don't need to agree with them, but you need to be able to see where they're coming from and why they do certain things or think in certain ways. Sometimes, learning to accept differences is one way to move forward. Other times, making a pivotal change is a way to move forward. Ultimately, your level of emotional intelligence directly equates to your level of empathy. It will affect your ability to healthily resolve conflict and form and maintain relationships, both in your personal life and at work, so it's well worth examining where or how you can make adjustments and improve. Honestly, I am not a very emotional person, aka, I am not very sympathetic at times. My take on life: it's tough (life is tough so deal with it!), and as humans, we often just have to deal with it. Although plenty of people share that viewpoint, it doesn't mean that everyone is on the same level, so I need to remember to check myself in order not to come off as an ass. We all deal with hardship differently, so it's important to be sensitive to others' coping mechanisms. I've become more sympathetic over time, but I won't lie, it's taken patience and practice! Life experience and interactions with a wide array of people have taught me a few things such as putting myself in other people's shoes. I'd like to end this video with a quote from Brene Brown: “Empathy has no script. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. It's simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of ‘You're not alone.'” There is no right or wrong way to improve your emotional intelligence, but a good starting point is to start listening intently, be open-minded, and imagine yourself in someone else's shoes. What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Take care, bye!
On today's episode of Momentum, Sharon talks about America's push to eradicate communists during the Red Scare and Korean War. Many people working toward the goal of civil rights and liberties shared links to the Communist Party, like William Patterson and Paul Robeson. In 1951, Patterson submitted a 237-page petition to the United Nations, called We Charge Genocide. After Patterson and Robeson presented their petition, the U.S. retaliated by seizing their passports, smearing their public image, and labeling the Civil Rights Commission as a communist-front organization.Because of the country's persecution of subversives and communists, the NAACP leaders were interested in assisting J Edgar Hoover in rooting out any “bad players” in the organization in order to protect it. In fact, Thurgood Marshall, who knew he was being spied on by Hoover, often acted as an FBI informant. He knew both the costs and benefits of cooperating. Do you think this was an effective strategy to distance the NAACP from the communist party? What about the organization's push to rebrand themselves as an American organization? What exactly did Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King Jr. disagree about? Sharon reveals the source of their strife next time! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
The Classical Theatre of Harlem provides theatrical productions, educational and literary programs for free or at little cost to Harlem residents, organizations, and all who seek Harlem as a cultural destination. Its productions have received a Drama Desk, OBIE, and New York Times Critics Pick Awards. From July 5th to 29th they bring an Afrofuturistic take on Twelfth Night to Marcus Garvey Park.NAACP and OBIE Award Winner, Ty Jones is Producing Artistic Director responsible for creating the Uptown Shakespeare in the Park series and other community initiatives.Allen Gilmore has played Othello, Iago, and created the role of James Hewlett in The African Company presents Richard The Third at the Public Theater. He makes his CTH debut in Twelfth Night.“I believe that these plays are living arguments and that when you actually read the full text, not cut down versions of them, but the full text, you'll see that Shakespeare was commenting on the ruling class, and for some reason, he found a way to comment on the workings of folks who make decisions in society.

He makes his CTH debut in Twelfth Night.“I believe that these plays are living arguments and that when you actually read the full text, not cut down versions of them, but the full text, you'll see that Shakespeare was commenting on the ruling class, and for some reason, he found a way to comment on the workings of folks who make decisions in society.

ON JUNETEENTH WE VISIT AUSTRALIA, DEFUND THE FASCISTS & SAVE PACIFICA RADIO We open the GREE-GREE zoom #99 with CLAIRE ATKIN of Check My Ads and its brilliant, cutting-edge campaign to strip internet-based income from fascist media mavens like Steve Bannon. Launched in early June, Claire's pathbreaking strategy includes grassroots campaigning against the violent-laced hate-mongering of the extreme right wing. Claire is followed by LEHMAN WEISCHSELBAUM's call for whistleblowers to unearth fraud and theft in the 2016 election that put Donald Trump in the White House. We hear from RAY MCCLENDON, NAACP Political Director for the NAACP in the state of Georgia about the possibility of indicting Trump in Fulton County. From Australia DR. CAROLYN ORR describes the huge turn-around in parliamentary politics with the unseating of a horrendous anti-environment conservative and the installation of a pro-democracy pro-environment coalition. In our second hour, we are joined by ALAN MINSKY, JAN GOODMAN and MYLA RESON for a deep dive into the anti-democracy crisis now threatening the future of the PACIFICA RADIO NETWORK. That full hour of detailed discussion can be found at https://youtu.be/keAkQycl7Bg?t=3865 . GREE-GREE #100 on June 27 will go deep into Georgia to learn if Fulton County will indict Trump, and whether the “Georgia Miracle” can be repeated in the fall.
The search for the new Boston Public Schools Superintendent is down to two finalists but not everyone is pleased with the pool of finalists. NAACP leader and candidate for Secretary of State Tanisha Sullivan is ringing the alarm over the pool's “lack of representation”. Sullivan does not take personal aim with the finalists, but rather with the fact that while a majority of BPS students are Black or Latino, neither of the finalists reflect that. Tanisha Sullivan joined Dan to discuss how she believes the search for superintendent needs to be halted.

Who killed Wharlest Jackson Sr.? In investigating the unsolved 1967 murder of a local NAACP leader, "American Reckoning" reveals an untold story of the civil rights movement and Black resistance. The feature-length documentary from FRONTLINE and Retro Report, with support from Chasing the Dream, draws on rarely seen footage filmed by Ed Pincus and David Neuman more than 50 years ago in Natchez, Mississippi, and made available through the Amistad Research Center. In following the Jackson family's search for answers, "American Reckoning" also taps into the groundbreaking reporting of journalist Stanley Nelson, who investigated allegations of the involvement of a Ku Klux Klan offshoot, known as the Silver Dollar Group. From acclaimed directors, producers and journalists Brad Lichtenstein ("When Claude Got Shot," "As Goes Janesville") and Yoruba Richen ("The Killing of Breonna Taylor," "The Sit In: Harry Belafonte Hosts the Tonight Show"), "American Reckoning" is the latest component of FRONTLINE's multiplatform initiative "Un(re)solved," telling the stories of more than 150 victims of civil rights era killings for whom there has been no justice.

I decided to do a solo episode this week because I think it's really sort of super important to highlight bias in the public policy profession – because it is a profession. Because over the last 17 years that I have been working on tech and media public policymaking, majority-white organizations have always seemed to think it's totally fine to attack organizations founded and led by people of color, orgs like this one, to pursue their status ambitions. So, let's be transparent, shall we? Just to give you some background – when I started working in this space – there was one organization in Washington – the Multicultural Media & Telecom Council (MMTC) – that focused specifically on telecommunications and media policymaking as they relate to underserved and underrepresented communities. This is where I cut my teeth as a young lawyer, in the ONLY fellowship in town for somebody like me who went to law school at night. Their members are, and continue to be, some of the finest minds in the business – folks like Ari Fitzgerald, a partner at Hogan Lovells who was on the show last week. These are lawyers of color primarily, who are at the top of this craft. And let me interject something here – this isn't Oakland. We are not Color of Change. This is DC, it's a political town, it's buttoned-up, and comparing orgs of color in this town to orgs like Color of Change – is really just not a relevant comparison. A better comparison would be to an organization like NAACP or the National Urban League – both of which have local chapters but they're based in DC. Donations come from 2 primary categories here in DC – corporations and foundations – that's it. If you've been around a long time – like the NAACP, NUL, or AARP – you have members. You can raise money from them, in addition to seeking other forms of support. That is the way this market works. Back around 2011 and 2012 it was organizations like Public Knowledge and Free Press calling out MMTC for accepting donations from Comcast. Again, one of the worst companies in the world for customer service. But they are internet service providers. It didn't matter if larger, huge nonprofits worked with these same companies – all that mattered was that Free Press and Public Knowledge needed someone to pick on when they were advocating for net neutrality. MMTC opposed net neutrality, which didn't make sense to me, which is why I started this organization when I was laid off from the Joint Center, where I co-led an institute along with Nicol Turner-Lee, which was also focused on telecommunications and media policy at the intersection of communities of color. So-called progressives with super-deep pockets didn't like orgs like MMTC because they were the only game in town – they had too much credibility – and they opposed net neutrality ( for reasons, by the way, I continue to be baffled by – but, in any case, they opposed it). So orgs like Public Knowledge and Free Press called them out – and I called out Public Knowledge and Free Press for having ZERO people of color working there but somehow having the audacity to try to drag MMTC. And as a result of my advocacy – at least I like to think it was – since no one else was pushing back – Public Knowledge is led by the great Chris Lewis and Free Press, by Jessica Gonazlez, who serves co-president along with Craig Aaron. These orgs now actively recruit diverse talent – they have changed drastically – and I'm proud of them. Jessica, Craig and Chris are my colleagues – just like you have colleagues in any profession – they fixed their model and stopped attacking MMTC. We'll see what happens when and if the net neutrality debate starts up again. But, for now, we're good. Joe Torres is at Free Press who wrote the book on diversity in the news profession. SO LET'S forward to 2016. In 2016, when this organization – WashingTech – was still an LLC, for profit, Chanelle Hardy, someone I've known since I first moved to DC in 2005 – who had worked at the National Urban League, on the Hill, and the FCC – joined Google. And, again, as a result of my advocacy, since I was vocal about it, as I am now – one of our taglines then and now – is the Inclusive Voice of Tech Policy, since nobody else cared about that until George Floyd. In 2016, Google started a cohort of folks called Next Gen Policy Leaders – the only PROGRAM IN TOWN AT THE TIME – to engage and involve people of color in tech policy. I continue to participate in the program because it is educational, offers great networking, and, again, continues to fill a need that everyone else just woke up to a couple years ago: the lack of diversity on panels, at networking events, on faculties, you name it, related to tech policy issues. Google was a first mover, while the rest of these tech companies, and nonprofits, were asleep. So, whose fault is that? Whose fault is it that they've built loyalty by investing in us. Now, fast forward to today – here comes another organization – the so-called ‘Tech Transparency Project,' which, again, isn't a racially and ethnically diverse organization, attacking Google Next Gen in a mediocre paper suggesting that Google had bought out people of color so they wouldn't speak out about Timnit Gebru's firing – again Dr. Gebru is an engineer whom Google fired for speaking up about bias in one of Google's algorithms. First, I OPPOSED her firing, and vocally, on a listserv read by many Next Gens and other people of color in this space. I blasted Google for it. I was livid. I was so vocal, no one else in the Next Gen cohort needed to be – which is always the case in this town – and let me tell you something, we get PENNIES compared to some of these larger organizations. Do you know what Google donated to us last year? $35,000. The rest of our funding came from Foundation support. But let's take a look at the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), which published their annual report last week. Let's see what Google donated to CDT. And CDT is a partner of ours. I'm on their advisory council. Many of their fine scholars have been on this show. But let's take a look – How much did Google donate to CDT in 2021? Wait for it! Over $500,000. Two other donors gave that much – the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the Knight Foundation. Now, let's use CDT's search feature on its website to see how much work they've done on “Timnit Gebru.” How many times did CDT so much as mention Dr. Gebru's name, much less call out Google for firing her? ZERO. How many times has the Tech Transparency Project called out CDT for failing to discuss Timnit Gebru? ZERO. So come on, let's talk about ‘Tech Transparency,' everybody. I guarantee I've made more sacrifices in the cause of inclusion and so-called “transparency” in this space than most of Washington. Let's talk about it.
