“You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering & complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas. If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair. We must reject not only the stereotypes that others have of us but also those that we have of ourselves.”

“Prisons do not disappear social problems, they disappear human beings. Homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, mental illness, and illiteracy are only a few of the problems that disappear from public view when the human beings contending with them are relegated to cages.” - Angela Davis

“Our country should be placed speedily above the plane of confessing herself a failure at self-government. This cannot be until Americans of every section, of broadest patriotism & best and wisest citizenship, not only see the defect in our country’s armor but take the necessary steps to remedy it.”

Make sure you share this far and wide on other social media platforms, especially Twitter. Emphasize the great conversation and the toxic free environment during the Pod.

“Although her recording career lasted just five years, blues singer Ma Rainey created a legacy that reaches far beyond music. But if there’s a simple way to sum up Ma Rainey’s importance, simply look to her nickname: “Mother of the Blues.””

“Around midnight on September 3, 1944, Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old Black, married mother, was walking home from a revival service, with neighbors, a gang of six white men kidnapped her, drove to a remote area in the woods, & raped her at gunpoint.

The six men were never prosecuted.”

“Big Mama Thornton is one of the most influential figures in the whole of rock, even if you’ve never heard of her.

Thornton would rank amongst the very first women in music to stick it to the men and show them how to do it.”

“Despite her Hall Of Fame induction, Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s talent, fame, and influence remain largely obscure and barely known to most music fans today.

Sister Rosetta brought an emotionally charged dimension that was foundational to rock’n’roll as the originator of pop gospel.”

Wilson’s work was featured on the records of many of the biggest names in jazz. He was one of the first black musicians to perform prominently alongside white musicians.”
