Aug 6 on FM: Justice 4 Trayvon Martin, Linda Brown & Cottonpickers of America Monument

Hosted by Sammy Lyon and Danielle Roderick:

Yes there was grieving, and there was also organizing! We’ll hear from organizers, scholars, and feminists Analena Hope and Kai M Green on the Justice 4 Trayvon Martin (#J4TMLA) and Black Lives Matter (#blacklivesmatter) campaigns, and how they are building alternatives to the world they are critiquing — especially after the latest in a series of verdicts affirming the racism of the “justice” system. Listen to the EXTENDED INTERVIEW here!

30 years after her first film exploring her relationship to her father, documentary filmmaker Linda Brown asks brave questions about her family’s relationship to abuse after her father’s death in her new film, You See Me. She reflects on how we can come to learn that we are all worthy of love.

Professor Sade Turnipseed, founder and Executive Director of Khafre, Inc. will discuss the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and National Park being erected to honor the significant contributions that slaves and sharecroppers made to American culture and economy, and the wisdom of “grandmama’nem.” She’ll be talking more about it in her upcoming presentation at the LA Black Book Expo on Saturday August 17th.

All this and more, Tuesdays at 3pm. THIS is what feminism sounds like!
