"Democrats were gathering in Philadelphia ahead of their convention, the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for president. Also four years ago this month, the Republicans took their turn. Nobody knows the system better than me. Which is why I alone convicts it So what's it going to sound like this summer? Well, maybe not dead silence, but the pandemic has put a blanket over everything. It's going to be very, very different this year. That's long time Democratic strategist Patti Solis Doyle, a veteran of presidential campaigns and conventions, I will be interested to see not only how it comes off, but whether or not we see it have an impact. On voter turnout in November. Democratic and Republican strategists argue that conventions energize activists and volunteers. They also send a signal to voters that it's time to start paying attention. Critics counter that the convention is one big infomercial with little or no drama. Michael Steele is a GOP veteran of Capitol Hill and presidential campaigns. He disagrees, he says it's a messaging test for a campaign an important one. There's a real public service benefit in bringing Candidatesviews of themselves and the party in the future to the general public in a way that they may not otherwise be exposed to. Even so, major networks tend to carry only the big marquee speech of each night Live. Steel says he does not think the big nominating conventions will suddenly become a thing of the past. This is not the end. I think there will be political conventions as long as they're political parties. They'll just be smaller and more focused in the next couple of cycles. The conventions are decades past serving their original purpose for the party to come together and choose a nominee These days. Voters do that, through primaries and caucuses and running mates are also named in advance. Karen Tumulty, a columnist at The Washington Post, hopes this is the end. Earlier this year, she wrote a piece arguing, pleading, in fact, to get rid of presidential conventions forever. She notes that there hasn't been a brokered convention since the Democrats nominated Adlai Stevenson in 1952. She points to the millions and millions of dollars spent on conventions by political parties by the media, sending anchors and teams of reporters to cover them and by lobbyists looking to curry favor. They just require an incredible amount of resource is and you know, are underwritten in ways that I think If you look too closely make a lot of people uncomfortable. It's hard to predict the future. Based on the events of this summer, the entire campaign has been turned upside down, like all of American life. Got to multi and other critics hope that the parties use this as an opportunity to see if there isn't a better way when things do get.

"Glad you're with Jimbo hadn't showed 186650 Jimbo, with 866 505 or 6 to 6. A political convention is a grand part of the American political tradition and process. And they have changed considerably. As I've noted. Over the years, they have had much less to do in the old conventions used to go forever. The 19 20 Democratic Convention, with 103 ballots, 103 ballots, the last major party convention. To even go beyond one was the Democrats in 1952. Who who had three ballots to nominate Adlai Stevenson. There's a call from Judy in Pittsburgh. I Judy Yes, I'm just annoyed because everybody's not looking at the conventions. They're not good. We're going to get coated the vows you coded the restaurants. But what about these protesters? Are they new to it? Or they gonna kill us all? I don't get it. Well, Obviously you see many examples. Of course nobody has. Nobody has even bothered to enforce the laws on vandalism and looting in some cases, so the last thing the police were going to do with enforce the law regarding social distancing. Of course, many of them were wearing masks, but it wasn't for purposes of disease prevention. It was to avoid being identified by the police. So, uh, you know, your your point is well taken. Ah, and again, it's the priorities of the local jurisdictions and one of the priorities. Unfortunately, in too many of those jurisdictions quite frankly, Judy has been to bow down. And worship anybody who gathers in the streets. Now I'm all in favor of legitimate, peaceable protestors from being granted their full First Amendment rights people who loot and vandalize And smash and grab. Those are nothing more than thugs, and they should be treated as such. But you're right. We haven't done anything about that. And I would not at all a doubt that some not all but some of the recent spike In covert 19 cases could be attributed directly to the people in the streets. Thanks so they're sure they're sober, touts and deep and it means abiding citizens under Well, I certainly understand how you can be sick of it. And again, I think that a lot of us are sick of the violence again, and we have to draw the distinction between the people who are legitimately and peaceably assembling, as it says in the Constitution and those who are just using it as an excuse. To. Ah, get out of the street and let their base her instincts take over. Regrettable, but true that it's just So our fault and don't have conventions. Ages don't want Donald Trump. Well, there are there are some. Of course there are those who have that that feeling. Although I would say in all fairness, first of all conventions are held in big cities, okay? You cannot hold a major party convention in a smaller city. The facilities aren't there. Virtually every big city in the country is run by Democrats. And so ah, always for at least the last 50 years. The host cities have been hospitable to the Democratic Convention and tolerant of the Republican Convention. Come to our town. Spend your money, but otherwise we're not happy to have you here. That's that's been a fact of life. This year. Of course, the hyperpartisanship Judy has reached the point..

"Know more about that after super Tuesday no major party has held a national convention that took more than one ballot to pick their ticket since the Democrats in nineteen fifty two took three ballots in Chicago to pick Adlai Stevenson of the Republicans came close in seventy six but the Ronald Reagan challenge to Gerald Ford fell a bit short what are the odds you think this time that the Democrats might actually go beyond the first ballot I think you have to give at least a forty to fifty percent chance of the Democrats going beyond one ballot at this point in time were you have to see what the Bloomberg money will bring him in terms of delegate strength but in terms of a contested convention so long as the debate stage is still holding five or six Canada a month or so from now then the increase the odds of a contested convention increased dramatically and I I'm sure is it general how you thought Michael Bloomberg did in comparison with those slick commercials those focus group tested commercials of which she is is spending just a tidal wave of money ever they've obviously had a positive effect he has gone from no where in the polls up to now in one national poll being second only to Sanders and ahead of everybody else in that field on the other hand I wondered about the extent to which slick commercials may have outshone that live unfiltered Michael Bloomberg well I think in his case as in most cases equipped Tanner debts the slick commercials are always much better done much better lighting you know with the point you want to make and you make it very sis saying like on like was the situation in the debate and Las Vegas and I think he came off the lacking in comparison to his commercials now that the U. but to the Nevada caucuses and of course but the last thing they want to do is repeat the errors of the Iowa caucuses and yet they're doing something a little different in Nevada come Saturday they are they have early voting for caucuses that is to say people may go in and vote and note their first second and third choices and those will somehow be filtered air look to the the actual caucusing that takes place on Saturday I'm not quite sure how this process is supposed to work but I'm sure of one thing I don't think anybody's ever done anything like this before this combination of voting early which I don't know whether it includes paper ballots or not and then combining those into a caucus boat where there again using I had an electronic means of reporting I I I think it's their attempt to become the number one primary holding state and for years but let's see whether they fall on their face or not former Indiana congressman Dave Evans.

"A look at upcoming cultural events and happenings you can see in and around our fair city in honor of Martin Luther king day on Monday were highlighting ways to commemorate the legacy of the civil rights leader and black history we begin in Harlem where big gardening walking tours is holding an MLK day walking tour the tour tells the story of Harlem's history as the capital of black American the early twentieth century and sites important to king's own life join me now is the founder president of big what I need walking tours sep Camille sept welcome thank you good afternoon so where does this tour start we start right in front of the Schomburg center which is a branch of the New York Public Library and I I think it's the perfect way to begin any discussion of African American history in Harlem or New York what we learn about our tour Schomburg well the key to our true Schomburg is that he was and after a Caribbean for importer Rico comes to New York as a young man he formed his eighteen seventy four and he basically told by his nineteen century public school teacher your people have no history and this young man takes it upon himself to disprove his teacher and throughout his lifetime with numerous other people and the support of artists and others gathers the material historic and cultural and archival material of African Americans and Africans the carribean to say no we have a history and now I want everyone in the world have access to it let's take a look at a couple of the stops that deal specifically with doctor king Harlem hospital so important in his history tell us what happened there with doctor king doctor king was doing a book signing at his in September twentieth nineteen fifty eight for his first book stride toward freedom when he was stabbed at balloons deans department store one hundred twenty fifth street and and a woman walked up to him the name of ms Currie aptitude Dr king stabbed him with seven into letter opener that according to doctors came right between his ribs and rested right up against his heart and he was taking the nearest hospital being Harlem hospital and he was operator on the removed his breastplate and to reinstate soda mop and afterwards the doctors basically said if you had coughed you may have died also on the tour is City College because MLK returned to New York in June of nineteen sixty three why they're it's not only discuss Dr king he gave the commencement address for graduation at Lewisohn stadium which isn't standing anymore and west a hundred thirty six street but to talk also about the moment in time for New York and for America that weekend at that time Manson dresses all over the city and what doctor king was talking CUNY you could have found the director of the Peace Corps Sargent Shriver addressing I will not group of graduating group Supreme Court justice Arthur Goldberg and you in about three Adlai Stevenson on the same day but also this was literally the day after king learned that Medgar Evers who accuse you can't as a name for had been murdered down south and so it's really stop the says look at doctor king in relationship to New York but also the tremendously tumultuous times of the early nineteen sixties what you hope people will learn about Harlem and and okay from this big on into our we hope the people come we with multiple understandings of the neighborhood one that Harlem has been a crucial New York City neighborhood for well over a century it has been with the heart of the African American urban experience for again well over a century but the diversity of the neighborhood how there is no one quote unquote black experience and also how this continues but at the same time going to relate Harlem to the rest of the city that Harlem is not in a different time zone or different continents he is just a subway ride away on the island of Manhattan and really integrated as well as African American history integrated into the broader history of New York sept meals the founder and president of big onion walking tours thank sap thank you we turn now to look at the annual production of the national you dish theater folks being sold a sold the theatrical concept performance highlighting the solidarity of the Jewish and African American communities to fight to advance civil rights joining me now is Zalman Altec artistic director of the national you dish theater folks being a creator director of the soul to soul so this has been around since twenty ten how did you first conceive of the show right I'm delighted to talk about that we first consider the show when Elmore James at one of the African American wonderful singers who came to me was looking for the Yiddish material that Paul Robeson useful saying and when I heard him sing and it has it has how my house of blues beautiful gorgeous the bass baritone voice I heard heard it and it just rang so true to me and I thought to myself you know I it reminded me of of my you when I was in the in the sixties when I was in camp and we ended in a Jewish socialist camp we would sing you civil rights the only thing we would do voter registration in those days and how important it was there and so I can see that this program where you would present the connections between African American music I hear this music and we've now been performing it for several years and this year for the first time we have a very special addition we have the impact highlands impact repertory here from Harlem they were read they were on the Oscars some years ago and they're amazing group that Jamaal Jamal and and and oppose the rivers have have created in the is not in all how this is going Jamal Joseph sorry that's okay how was the show changed over the years you know if it changes with the narrative channel the particulars of this year you know when when we weren't aware at this moment and in his in New York City and America when when we are so by the rising anti semitism and how important it is to remind people that we have similar to similar missions that that that that we come from the same sound came come from the same and and and and our and our desires are the same and so it's it's a very much so very much informs the performances as you'll hear them on Sunday my guest is Solomon Altec artistic director of the national you this theater folks be and could you share with us what are some of the connections between the Jewish and African American movement for civil rights that the performance draws on well as as many of your listeners now that you know in the sixties fast Abraham not by a grandson Joshua Heschel was a was a proponents of the civil rights movement with doctor Martin Luther king and then March together in Selma and daily that inspired a whole generation of Jewish Americans who not long ago hi Justin under had just gone through you know the that the absolute worst trauma of the Holocaust here twenty years later were on the streets fighting for the rights of their American brothers and it was very poignant for us and for many hundreds of thousands of Americans to at that time and the songs the songs of freedom the songs all when when when you think of freedom when we think of woke up this morning with my mindset on freedom it's always think of follow the drinking gourd and all the songs that were so popular for for us in the sixties it was very special for me to go up to a hundred thirty third street this week on CTV on kids who are you know their own music and are going to perform their own music since some of the songs that they did not home and it was exciting for me to introduce this whole repertoire to them that I think the audience is going to be founded by hearing them and with our artists together my guest is a Solomon mall tech artistic director of the national yet is theaters folks me we're talking about soul to soul so we presented by the new folks be in on Sunday the nineteenth and listers really get on you get you in on this conversation numbers two one two four three three nine six nine two two one two four three three W. NYC were curious how you are going to spend your MLK day what your feelings are about the day as we continue our conversation of things that we can do to see commemorate Dr king it's interesting it's soul to soul is the name and I think about people that they understand soul music was all men but we think about soul music and traditional you dish folk music what what do they have in common well you know there there's there's a tremendous repertoire of music that of consciousness music that speaks towards the hall towards the the wishes for human rights and in the years to clear his number that you know what we're talking about the people that you know any before they came to America choose in Lithuania and Russia Poland it was it with the difficult times through difficult times and told people until they were it was there also press pogroms what the hell in the early part of the twentieth century and then of course the anti semitism in the in the in the twenties and thirties and forties and as a whole will be towards songs in here that speaks to the hope and the desire for equality for trespass to social justice and these these things you know are very much in common with the struggle through the African American people in this country is that what is it why do you think it's important that sixteen has this show as an annual tradition what's so important because in this day and age when we see this divisiveness between people and we think that people are influenced to the fact that we are all how one cop common corners and and we and we marched together and we fought together and we and we struggled together and not just just just talk about the African American and Jewish until I'm talking about in general the the the the kind of this is the kind of hatred that we're that we're experiencing in it you know with it you know that that's just nonsense itself in Jersey city and Nancy it's important that people understand that the Jewish people are people of that's really you know where we always we always strive for peace since we talk about it all the time we pray for us and that's that's that's the kind of message that we want to to presents and and when we have an opportunity to to honor the memory of American doctor ten with music that resonates for us as people we want to senior from the rooftops let's take a call from one of our listeners is listening in our conversation we're talking to Allen who's calling from Brooklyn Allen thank you for calling on you hear me clearly I can hear you very clearly Sir okay very good this is the first thing after what I just heard I want to say that the best thing is to choose from a black struggle is very so will we you know the power of the word I think what used to be publicized it is still same struggle so we did that more than maybe more people would listen and become aware now I was there with king Martin Luther king I was in Amityville alone our school June all he wanted was junior high and we're happy it was it was controversial it was controversial and was crying and it was speeding on each other and and wear white and black and and islanders including all cuddled but it was something that we knew that was in charge we knew that it wasn't just that had been done I remember that clearly and and now that that I'm in my thirties sincerely succinyl January now I realize I didn't look at the wisdom and knowledge and learned in experience and hi I see well you know there's always easy I took my son the answer is always easy to any of life's problems I didn't say may any alarms from there's always easy are you willing.

"The theme of this administration when you read about that in your piece and you said that this is a clear attempt to replace the humanitarian mission of our protection laws with an enforcement objective but this is where I think the president's supporters would saying elections have consequences I mean the president made it clear from the moment he made his bid for office that he takes a dim view of immigration broadly at least from certain parts of the world so you know by that standard his point of view about the S. and his intention to make this a cornerstone of his policies is should not have been a surprise would that be fair to say well I can't speak to to a surprise but here's the thing we have real challenges humanitarian and security challenges that we need to find real solutions the problem that I have seen is that this administration has used this issue as a political talking points instead of actually finding the solutions and the answers that we need to control our borders protect our national security entry people humanely the thing is we can achieve all of those goals at the same time you said in your piece that you don't really see yourself as a partisan there you you have not at least during your time at DHS but now you're running for Congress so the civil servants have run for Congress before me that's not unheard of but tell me about that transition from saying you're not a partisan to be overtly being a partisan well as a civil servant we are in public service and we simply serve the public regardless of who is in the White House Adlai Stevenson he's actually define patriotism as not the fear of something but the love of something and I love my country I love its values and our freedoms and I have seen people who have been oppressed we have lived without civil rights we've had their human rights violated and so I am now standing up for the principles of democracy and liberty and freedom and these are not partisan or political issues they are American values and the need to be defended that was Travis Olson he recently resigned from his role at the department of homeland security he wrote about this for the Houston Chronicle and he's now running for Congress in Texas Travis also thanks so much for talking to us thank you you're listening to NPR.
