Today on Sojourner Truth we begin by paying homage to the life of Tyre Nichols as civil rights leaders including: Reverend Al Sharpton, speak at his funeral on Wednesday, contextualizing the significance of his death at the hands of black police officers. We are joined by civil rights icon Zoharah Simmons who will be discussing the response from educators and civil rights organizers to the rejection of an advanced placement course on African American studies for high school students last month by Florida's department of education, under the leadership of Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis. Initially Florida tried to ban the course entirely, but after weeks of backlash and even a potential lawsuit the College Board released the official curriculum for a new Advanced Placement course in African American studies on Wednesday, the first day of Black History Month. However, critics point out that the newest iteration of the course is now missing several themes and voices from Black scholars that were originally presented in a pilot program already being taught at dozens of schools this year across the country. The month of January culminates in what is being proclaimed globally as the deadliest period of fighting between Israel and Palestine in years in the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem. The Palestinian Ministry of Health reports Israel has killed at least 42 Palestinians in this month alone, including 8 children and an elderly woman. The deadliest Israeli raid in the West Bank took place on Thursday January 26, when Israeli forces raided the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank, killing 10 people. It was the deadliest Israeli raid in the West Bank in two decades. We discuss these latest developments in the Israeli-Palestine conflict with Michael Kalmanovitz, founding member of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network. We will also hear our weekly Earth Minute segment from the Global Justice Ecology project on carbon offset realities for major U.S. corporations. Our Earth Watch guest joining us to delve into a deeper discussion of carbon offset and its impact on climate change is researcher Jutta Kill, whose current research focuses on analyzing the role of carbon markets in the emergence of the Green Economy concept where natural complexity and diversity are transformed into "natural capital" – the re-defined "nature" of the Green Economy. Her recent writings explore how in the process, rules-based environmental legislation and fines for violation of environmental regulation are being replaced with incentive-based regulation and fees that buy the right to destroy or pollute.

Today on Sojourner Truth we discuss the wrongful killing of Tyre Nichols, a 29 year old black man who was beaten up and tased by five black police officers and later died in the hospital. According to the family attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci, an independent autopsy was done by a forensic pathologist, which determined that Nichols died of “excessive bleeding caused by a severe beating.” Police claim to have stopped Nichols for a traffic violation and that he became aggressive and tried to reach for one of the officers' guns, however video footage showed that police lied in their report. Videos of the beating that involved five black officers who at one point laid on top of Nichols all at once, was released Friday January 27th, leading to widespread national protests and putting a national spotlight on Memphis,TN police and the wider conversation around systemic failures and racism in policing. A 6th police officer, Preston Hemphill, who is white, has been let go from the police force as the investigation on the killing of Tyree Nichols continues. Hemphill's attorney confirmed he was the 3rd officer at the initial stop and the body cam footage was from his body cam. Hemphill's body camera captures part of the initial confrontation with Nichols. In the video, Hemphill can be seen using a Taser on him. Later, a voice on the body cam that seems to be Hemphill's says, “I hope they stomp his a--” after Nichols escaped. The sheriff in Shelby County, Tenn., which includes Memphis, said two of his deputies were relieved of duty amid an internal investigation, citing “concerns” after they “appeared on the scene following the physical confrontation between police and Tyre Nichols.” The Memphis Fire Department has also said it pulled two personnel from duty in response to the case and launched an internal investigation. Days before Tyre Nichols passed three men were killed by the Los Angeles Police Department within 48 hours. Our guests joining us for the hour to unpack the aftermath of the death of Tyre Nichols as well as the recent killing of three men by Los Angeles Police include: Ash-Lee Henderson, the first Black woman to serve as the co-executive director of the Highlander Research and Education Center. Ash-Lee is an active participant in the Movement for Black Lives. Dr. Gerald Horne, Moores Professor of History and African-American Studies at the University of Houston, and organizer Mic Crenshaw. Mic Crenshaw is an independent hip hop artist, respected emcee, poet, educator and activist and the lead U.S. Organizer for the Afrikan Hip-Hop Caravan who uses Cultural Activism as a means to develop international solidarity related to Human Rights and Justice through Hip Hop and Popular Education.

Today on Sojourner Truth, activists and co-founders of the Shawnee Forest Defense John Wallace and Karen Frailey join host Margaret Prescod for the hour to discuss recent developments in their campaign towards making the Shawnee Forest a national park and climate preserve. The Shawnee National Forest is located in Southern Illinois. The Shawnee National Forest encompasses a 289,000 acre area in southern Illinois stretching from the Mississippi River to the Ohio River which contains some of the most ecologically bio-diverse areas in the United States. Three decades ago, in the summer of 1990, activists from Earth First! occupied the Fairview Timber sale site in the Shawnee Forest which is located in Southern Illinois for 79 days — using their bodies to block the logging equipment and using legal strategies to challenge the harvesting of the lumber in court. This historic action has come to be known as the Shawnee Showdown. This relatively small group of activists were successful in stopping commercial logging in the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois for 17 years. But in 2013, the Forest Service won a motion to lift the injunction. But logging is back in Shawnee. Currently, thousands of acres at the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois are scheduled for logging operations. Shawnee is managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which allows logging on public lands. The fight to save the Shawnee Forest continues today, with the most recent attempt by organizers to transfer the Shawnee National Forest out of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's control and into the hands of the U.S. Department of the Interior, with a proposal that would establish Shawnee as a National Park and designate it as the nation's first climate preserve. The biggest gain from converting the forest into a national park and climate preserve is the elimination of commercial logging efforts and resource extraction.

In 1995, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reclassified the bald eagle from endangered to threatened in the lower 48 states. Populations continued to recover enough that, in 2007, the bald eagle was officially removed from the federal Endangered Species List. The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States of America and appears on its seal. This majestic species of birds generally represent strength, pride, and courage. The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird was the reason it was selected as a symbol of the strength and freedom of America when European settlers first came across one. For indigenous people the bald eagle represents the strongest and bravest of all birds. For this reason, Native Americans have chosen the eagle and its feathers as a symbol of what is highest, bravest, strongest and holiest. The bald eagle is indigenous to North America. Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting. And in Potter Valley, Mendocino CA, a 150 foot pine tree nesting bald eagles for the last 25 years is under threat of being cut down by PG&;E before the nesting season begins and it becomes illegal to cut the tree this week. PG&E contract workers showed up with wood chippers and County Sheriffs intimidating and shoving tree protectors who were lined up protecting the 150-foot tall pine tree harboring the eagles' nest. PG&E has refused to consider alternatives such as installing automatic shut-off switches on their antiquated lines or putting the lines underground. Eagle supporters have offered to raise the $200,000 estimated cost of removing the hazardous lines instead of the tree, and are continuing to be overlooked, our guest is Pauline Girvin, an elder married into the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, in whose ancestral territory the eagle tree stands.

Today on Sojourner Truth we bring you our King Day special program paying homage to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's radicalism. Dr. Martin Luther King became increasingly vocal about his views against the war the U.S. was waging at the time– the war in Vietnam. He delivered a speech entitled, “Beyond Vietnam: Time to Break the Silence,” exactly one year before his assassination. Dr. Martin Luther King declared: “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.” He went on to name the U.S. government as the greatest purveyor of violence in the world and preached that nonviolent direct action is our greatest hope and the best tool to bring about change. Over 54 years later, in this powerful speech, Dr. King provides both a diagnosis and a cure that remains fully relevant today. As the U.S. finds itself encroached in yet another war enabling the continued war between Russia and Ukraine. Today, in partnership with the CA High Desert residents and the CA Poor People's Campaign, Sojourner Truth brings you audio from this public reading of “ Beyond Vietnam.” This event was part of 54 public readings— for each year since Dr. King's assassination— taking place across the state of California. The CA Poor Peoples' Campaign has picked up Dr. King's unfinished work, weaving the interlocking injustices—systemic racism, systemic poverty, environmental devastation, militarism and the war economy and a distorted moral narrative of Christian nationalism—into one “moral fusion” campaign. We hope you'll enjoy this live reading of Martin Luther King's speech "Beyond Vietnam" read by the CA high desert residents honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today on Sojourner Truth, our Friday round table discussion featuring governing board member for the LA school district, Jackie Goldberg, foreign correspondent Laura Carlsen, and Dr. Gerald Horne, Moores Professor of History and African-American Studies at the University of Houston. Today we discuss the 118th Congress, new Democratic minority Hakeem Jeffries, and his contextualizing of Democrat's policies in alignment with women's reproductive rights and workers rights drawing a clear contrast with the conservative Republican party agenda. And what does Rep. Kevin McCarthy's eventual election as house speaker mean for the greater picture in Congress? We also delve into Israel's most conservative government in history and the U.S. involvement in it. We also discuss the political upheaval in Latin America: Over 50 protestors have died in Peru, where Peru's working class is leading protests to reinstate former President Castillo's government, who they feel was ousted for speaking up vs. government corruption, meanwhile Haiti is facing a set of intersecting catastrophes: famine, cholera, devastating gang violence, fuel shortages and economic collapse, what does this mean in context of the new asylum policies announced by the U.S. capping humanitarian parole visas at 30,000 per month to eligible people from Haiti, as well as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

Listening to today's podcast episode will surely pique your interest. We have the opportunity to speak with Carrie Hart, spiritual explorer, author, speaker, and singer/songwriter. She is a woman of many talents, for sure!During our conversation, Carrie shares with us a little about her start in the corporate world and how that transitioned into her spiritual journey over the past 25 years, as a shaman working with power animals and as a powerful meditation teacher.When her deeply-loved husband of 46 years died suddenly, Carrie found that she needed to pause her work in healing others to focus on healing herself. She needed to create a new life, one with love and joy at its center, even though she was now on her own. That's exactly what she did. Her new book, Sojourner in Ataquay, explains the answers that came to her and the tools and techniques that helped her rebound and create her best, most beautiful life, after overcoming loss.She leaves us with a term she has coined to explain challenging tasks ahead. She says, "I call it, scary-good... where I know I should do something, but it's really scary. I can feel it's a good thing, but it is scary. Almost everything you do, that is new, is scary at first. Open up the door and move forward."Learn more and connect with Carrie here:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/carriehartspiritInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/carriehartspiritTwitter: https://twitter.com/carriehartweetWebsite: carriehart.com Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast.

Today on Sojourner Truth, after only two weeks in power, the most religious and conservative government in the history of Israel is already cultivating divisions at home and rushing towards conflict with the Palestinians and Israel's allies abroad. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu enters his 16th year in power with an ultra nationalist agenda that includes banning displaying the Palestinian flag and a proposed legal assault on Israel's Supreme Court that could alter the foundations of Israel's democracy. We speak to world renown peace activist and director of the New Internationalism Project at The Institute for Policy Studies, Phyllis Bennis on the situation in Israel. Meanwhile the U.S. enters its 118th Congress with changes across party lines. Representative Hakeem Jeffries was elected to succeed longtime Democratic leader as the House Minority leader. A position held by Rep. Nancy Pelosi for over 20 years. Rep. Nancy Pelosi was also the first woman Speaker of the House in U.S. history, who led the Democratic Party, who held the house majority for four presidential terms. Republicans are now the majority in the house and the process of replacing her with Republican CA Senator Kevin McCarthy turned into a week long saga taking over 15 rounds of votes, until he finally received the 20 votes he needed from his party to be elected, having to make several controversial concessions to far right MAGA Republicans that initially voted vs him. We discuss the imminent danger of these concessions, as well as the aftermath of widespread voter suppression during the 2022 midterm, the shift in the house and of course the ardent speech that has since gone viral, delivered by Representative Hakeem Jeffries as he opened the 2023 118th Congressional session, with civil rights legend, President & Founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition and attorney, Barbara Arnwine.

Since the early 1980s, at least 200 Black women and girls were victims of serial murders or mysteriously disappeared in South Los Angeles. Many were victims of the multiple serial killers (including the notorious “Grim Sleeper” who preyed on vulnerable and impoverished Black women, including sex workers, homeless women, and those with addiction issues. You may be familiar with the Grim Sleeper documented by Director Nick Broomfield in the HBO film, “Tales of the Grim Sleeper.” However, most media outlets paid little or no attention to these murders, taking their cue from the police which shockingly and horrendously labeled the victims No Human Involved (NHI). Most city and county officials made little attempt to raise the alarm. All of this resulted in more women continuing to die. This compelled Sojourner Truth host Margaret Prescod and a cohort of people to found the Black Coalition Fighting Back Serial Murders to continue to raise awareness in Los Angeles, among its residents, the Los Angeles Police Department, and other government agencies on the continued devaluation of our lives, particularly but not only by law enforcement.

Today on Sojourner Truth, we bring you voices from a virtual press conference on the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the recent amicus brief in the Abu-Jamal Case filed by the UN Working Group on people of African descent. The International Body Observes that Racial Bias has tainted the judicial process up to now citing new evidence of innocence and misconduct by Judges and Prosecutors. Mumia Abu-Jamal's lawyers say evidence in boxes discovered in the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office by the new DA at the time, Larry Krasner in 2019 that show his trial was tainted by judicial bias and police and prosecutorial misconduct, including: withholding of evidence, and bribing or coercing witnesses to lie. As of the airing of this show, the plea for a new trial in the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal went before Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Lucretia Clemons on Friday December 16th. Judge Clemons asked the commonwealth if they could confirm that there is no new evidence in the 32 boxes that relate to Brady and Bateson claims. The commonwealth did not confirm. So now Mumia's lawyers will be making arrangements to see those boxes and Judge Clemens said she would issue her ruling in 60-90 days. The press conference held on December 13th included: Moderator Associate Professor Johanna Fernandez who has researched Mumia's case at length and is executive producer of the film Justice on Trial: the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Ms. Fernandez is presently Associate Professor of History at Baruch College, CUNY; the Honorable Wendell Griffen, state court trial judge in the Sixth Judicial Circuit of Arkansas, Dr. Vijay Prashad, Executive Director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, Buenos Aires, Johannesburg, New Delhi, and São Paulo; Julia Wright, founder of the Mumia Abu-Jamal Health Committee and Board of the Richard Wright Civil Rights Center in Elaine, AR., Linn Washington, Jr.-- a Philadelphia-based investigative reporter who has covered the Mumia Abu-Jamal matter since Abu-Jamal's arrest on the morning of Dec. 9, 1981, as well as Mumia's grandson Jamal Jr.

Today on Sojourner Truth in partnership with the Global Justice Ecology Project our Earth Watch guest is Anne Petermann, Executive Director of the Global Justice Ecology Project and international coordinator of the campaign STOP GE Trees. Researchers at the State University of NY College of Enviornmental Science and Forestry are developing genetically engineered (GE)American Chestnut trees that are blight resistant, and hope to win government approval for its unregulated release in the environment. GE trees are being lauded as the biotech solution for forest conservation, however the reality is that should GE trees be approved they would be mass produced and used for commercial production of timber, pulp and bio-fuels, instead of forest conservation. The GE American Chestnut could be the first GE forest tree species planted specifically to spread freely through forests, and the dangers of this could be catastrophic to existing forest ecosystems. Not only does the US regulatory system have no specific regulations to deal with the release of GE trees into forests, but the highly experimental introduction of GE trees could create new problems and worsen existing pressures on forest ecosystems, already strained from unsustainable logging practices, invasive species, introduced pests and pathogens and the surmounting impacts of climate change. Anne Petermann has played a key role in the global effort to stop the release of genetically engineered trees into the environment in the last 22 years. In 2008 she led a campaign demanding a global ban on GE trees that won an historic decision on GE trees from the UN Convention on Biological Diversity warning countries of the dangers of GE trees and urging them to use a precautionary approach.

Today on Sojourner Truth we discuss the UN Climate Summit held in Egypt, or Cop 27, that culminated Sunday November 20th after two weeks of arduous negotiations. This victory is a direct result of mounting pressure from global civil society organizations present in Sharm el-Sheikh and in cities and capitals around the world, combined with strong leadership, 30 years in the making. A breakthrough deal is the establishment of a loss and damages fund to help poorest countries most impacted by climate change. Rich countries are agreeing to contribute to this fund but what will this actually look like? It will likely still be several years before the fund exists. Major lingering questions include: who would oversee the fund, how the money would be dispersed – and to whom. Many countries said they felt pressured to give up on tougher commitments for limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius in order for the landmark deal on the loss and damage fund to go through. And the richest countries largely contributing to fossil fuel pollution, made no real commitments to curb their use, in fact the loss and damage funds deal also included a reference to "low-emissions energy," raising concern among some that it opened the door to the growing use of natural gas - a fossil fuel that leads to both carbon dioxide and methane emissions. Joining us to discuss and contextualize the gains and concessions that took place at Cop 27 are, Shereen Talaat is Co-director and one of the founders of The Arab Watch Regional Coalition for Just Development that covering issues in the Middle East and North Africa, Tina Gerhardt, journalist and Cop 27 correspondent covering the UN conference for The Nation magazine and Luiz Vieira coordinator for the Bretton Woods Project.
