Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis
"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

people okay Google colder but it's not okay hold a person have to come in and get a hair cut if we're taking the proper precautions to keep people safe as we possibly can and I thought about the fact that you know the government stimulus primary so that there were plans to obtain that went through my mind that led to me finally deciding when talking to my wife about it decided Hey look you know we gotta get back at it because we need to make a living because there's no support for us out here right now at this moment are you scared for your own safety are you clear so much is unknown about this

open for business it's taken all the precautions told who's shown up so far we have a lot of you know regular clients and they've been they've been calling and coming and supported there careful when they come earlier it's only the two of you know you love them and myself in the barber shop and they come in and get their service in there they've been quite please we have not had anyone complain about anything but not all businesses welcomed back customers immediately ran a Duncan owner of creation salon studio a little bird told me why she chose to wait how has the pandemic and shutting down affected your business it's affected me tremendously and has a completely new clothes as well as some access there we wouldn't be working at this time so you know not working and having to close unexpectedly it was just really a change over the fact that we had to really assess him how long was your business shut down we've been closed since it was mandated so Arsanis our doors have literally been shut since March twenty eighth down roughly about four weeks I didn't wanna close early and then they become mandated I know I have some fellow salon owners around me that you know some of them voluntarily took a week prior to go ahead and shut down but for me before the pandemic leaders they want to close and then have to be out an extended period you know what I'm saying we don't want to be out of work even longer than what we had to we just make sure that we took the necessary precautions that would have been meeting before everything got really really bad what do you think of the governor's plan re opening businesses I think the governor's plan to re open it does really Kerr everyone off guard I think I left a lot of people wondering why he decided to open a week earlier than he initially stated and you know mentally a lot of people we were okay with the fact that it was gonna be open around may but when he just did it a week early especially without notifying anyone it is really took a lot of people off guard did you reopen on April twenty fourth I day in because literally a day or two after he re opened we end up having thought you feel weak it was announced by our Georgia state board of cosmetology that they put out new guidelines and rules that have to be put into place so that meant that I had to notify have time to notify my stance is welded notify my client I had to order supplies that would be needed as recommended by these new guidelines so it's a lot of things that we had to put in order to be able to ensure everyone safety so we couldn't reopen that fighting because we were had to follow these new rules balances or state board of directors would have been hard well I just need it personally I needed to write about what my next steps are going to be and how to come up with a plan to open safely so that's that's why that's why we didn't open net pricing what is your plan going forward our plan going forward is to only service our current clients for the month of may so that just means we're not open to the public or accepting walk ins were just taking care of the clients that we have been fired servicing you know in one that's already been calm says we have a couple clients that come every two weeks so we're just kind of slowly work in them back in and getting them into the book and then add their research closer to June we will re evaluate the situation and see where we are in what needs to be changed if anything needs to be changed at that time how have your clients responded during this time our clients have been very supportive I ended up creating a online store that actor reselling our products in them so they've been very supportive of that and a lot of them you know just voluntarily they didn't send in money without me even asking and that that is really caught me off guard because they know that if they're not in my chair that I'm not making money and so for them to understand that and just go ahead and send money to us it is really really touched my heart no there we are not in this alone and a lot of them were struggling you know in that email after he announced that we could reopen and some you know I have some that replied if there they just weren't ready to come back and we completely understand that decision I'm okay with that because again we're not trying to service everyone we just want to start off slow and make sure you know there were properly sanitizing between each client and making sure that there's not a lot of people in the salon in you know making sure everyone that walks through the door have often I'm mad so you know I'm we're we're completely okay with the ones that aren't ready to come back all of my style is well ready to come back so I was just I would really glad for everyone honesty you know is what the situation my client because they don't really open and honest with how they felt had they been struggling and you know we face time to help them with any questions that they had about their hairstyle we just really been there for each other my guest is little bird beauty salon owner ran a Duncan what do you hope we learn from this period I just really hope that we learn as a society that life is really precious and to not take anyone for granted and I know it's kind of cliche but it just really hit home when you've seen how many people have died in how many loved ones just couldn't be there for their cousin or their mom or their brother or their father you know who has passed away in the hospital and the market really goes out to everyone and I just really hope that we also learned that we are stronger as a nation we do things together the whole ricocheted effect of this day closing down at this time in our state only sat down for two weeks and then another state United really feel like if we were one nation unified in just went ahead and closed everything and usually it is really went them better so I just really hope that

Who Do you drive running into a Bachelor nation events? A lot of people. I'd say probably if we're going to be honest let's just be honest. Yeah a lot of people but like no one. We're GONNA name. I think that you guys probably don't WanNa run into Blake Ortega. I don't having an issue like do you have initiated. Only have an issue with that work will now. I mean you know it's awkward but like again from like from what I was perceived as on the show I feel like Could have been perceived as something else. So I'm trying to take that into account. I'm like you know what like I don't really hold grudges if if we're all just confused in exhausted and not even sure what any truth is at some point on the show that. I need to give them a break So I mean now that's awesome you guys. Also you have like a group of friends from these past two seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette that like there's so many breakups and so much tension between so many of them. How was your engagement party when you had Hannah Brown with Jed and with Peter at the same place it was Super Fun? I don't think anybody really interacted with each other but it was actually very peaceful. There was so much going on and people got their different times and things like that honestly. I was so focused on having fun and I think everybody in a sense kind of had the group of people so I don't think any weird paths were crossed. Luckily because that could have gone super downhill but it was really fun. I had so many friends from you know Alabama out there Dell had friends from all over so we were having just as much front. You Know Fun with them as we were with our bachelor friends and stuff so luckily it was very peaceful. So you're good friends with Hannah and did you help her. Get on the show. I don't think she needed any help. Getting on that show at all but I had one of the producers reach out when we took a picture together story or something. I'm last year and he was like. Whoa is she's single like you know and I was Kanye. I Dunno whatever and she was in a relationship and then they ended up breaking up and when I got back compared shoes. Hey it's kind of random but remember when you asked me or I told her something when the producer asked me I was like I was like. Hey I know you're in a relationship. Bow Funding producer from the bachelor asked about you and she's like Oh that's funny. Whatever and then after paradise she had like after my paradise they had ended things. And I KINDA WANNA like look into it. I don't know maybe maybe not I was like why not like just like goes if it's your thing whatever and I don't think I helped her but she definitely put a good word. I'd definitely put in a good word but you know I think she definitely would have gotten on the show regardless of me. You're probably right. Yeah so when she insinuates on after the final rose that Peter reached out to Hannah Brown during their engagement. And you being friends with the hand of an and Peter and Hannah Brown gotTa know what you know about this whole lot. Yeah I don't I don't really know that was definitely news to me and I think it's also like at the end of the day between the three of them. I guess it's like anybody's friends like just because they're on. Tv into many people are invested in it. It's like like my my normal friends who have been on the show back in all the thing if they had something weird going on like. I don't feel like it's totally my place to lay copying or try to like get a bunch of clues. I didn't even know that Hannah and like had been engaged or anything so it was very much like I told her I was like. I'm here to support you in whatever ways like you know and I respect it because you can't just be like proper information like there's more to a friendship than trying to figure out what happened on the show so I was like your back you know. Just let me know if you are struggling with anything or if you just want to chat like as a friend not talk about bachelor stock so those kind of the role that I played in it and whenever some spoilers came out I just kind of reached out and I was like hey like I'm here. Whatever and let's shut after so well. Hey we're all bachelor nation. This is one of the wildest seasons I can remember. I kind of forgot Hannah that you were so closely connected to Hannah. And I figured you'd know you would have known that she was engaged. But it's probably glad it's probably good that you didn't because the last few weeks would have been so confusing because you go from being engaged to be broken up to then seeing Peter Still in Chicago with Kelly. Here's we've got breaking news as of today Dylan Hannah Ashley. Let's take a break. We'll come back and I want to speak to the two of you about who you are where you're going what the future looks like for the two of you as a couple a social distancing tip while the CDC urges you to avoid close.

Yeah I can continue. Seeing other people can see who? I want I want. I mean it's great as you can imagine right. Now it's really difficult juggling than Broadway show so it's it's kind of a lot and I'm not necessarily looking for anyone but like I said what the the mentality of it really is. Just trying to remain open to any and all things that life throws at you be that romantic. Be that career-wise. Be THAT ANY ANY DIFFERENT WAY. That that can manifest and so really. It's just me attempting to not put boundaries on myself not put rules on myself and trying to break free of a lot of like old. Hetero normative ideas of what a relationship is and what a relationship pass to be and you know a lot of people who think that I'm trashed and there are a lot of people think that like I'm That this doesn't make sense and it won't work and maybe it won't and maybe they're right but there's There's an interesting road that I'm on right now. I'm in my thirties. So I'm like I think I kind of have a sense of who I am and what I'm doing so yeah it's been interesting to walk in that path but the the rules that would define you as trash are based on ideals and ideas concepts that don't apply to. Us exactly exactly. I mean the the sort of yeah. I mean the the anyone that would call me trash for what I'm thinking right now is kind of. I think feeding into these old ideas that are established by Hetero normativity. And like you know this idea that like. Who can one thing? I've gotten a lot of people not a lot but some people have said you know we fought for marriage equality and we fought for this. And I'm like yeah absolutely we. We fought for marriage equality because civil rights. The thing that we should all have. It doesn't mean that I have to then commit to. It means that I should have the right just like you do to get married if I want to. I almost cursed. I'm sorry I don't know how to back. Yes okay fuck yeah okay But like you know my whole mentality of it is just like all the as a gay black person. All of the forms that are in place for me are all of the forms that are sort of in place have been established by whiteness and Hetero normativity really sort of the hedge hegemonic ideas of what we are socially and I'm just trying to break that down for myself again. I'm not saying anyone else needs to apply this to their way of life but I'm trying to get out of the mentality that says the way things have been as the way things should be and as long as I'm not hurting anyone as long as I'm not breaking any laws any reasonable laws. I think that I you know anyone that would call me. Trash is dealing with their own insecurity and dealing with their own bullshit and it's not really on me to take that on so you can call me trash if you want to. I. I've been called way worse and know their trash. It's to- it's one thing I've realised at this point in my life just getting to where I am at Lake. You know anyone that feels label your anyone. That feels the need to denigrate. Us doing it. Because they're they're riddled with insecurity and they don't understand themselves and so in order to better understand themselves they need to try and put you down and they need to try and rid a ridicule. You so to that I say fuck off and if you need to. That's fine I I don't give a shit so I can do and say whatever you want but I'm still gonna live the life that I'm living the way I want to live and I'm going to try as hard as I can to take care of the people that I love and take care of the people that I care about and do what I'm doing and breakdown all these fucking models of you know crap that of these models that have told me that I'm less than a man or that I'm less than a human or that. The way I love is sinful and I choose not to hear it. I choose not to live that life anymore. And it's given me a lot of agency and a lot more self esteem to be completely honest. I don't I don't hate myself anymore the way I did for a long time because all these structures that told me I wasn't good enough for that I wasn't that I was a center or that. I was an awful person or that I was dumb. I I just. Don't let them rule me anymore. So that's beautiful to do Oprah. I fix my life special. Which is another thing we could. I move on their casting by the way they're casting for now. Yeah Yeah I we should let her listen to this episode. Maybe she'll she have some thoughts or maybe she's going to be like can I? Can I can teach me something. I would love to hang out with the online John pollyanna week coach. Do you have a spiritual practice? I Don I four. I'm God that's such A. What is your relationship to religion? I grew up baptist. I grew up in a pretty I would say my immediate family was sort of like nominally. I don't WanNa say nominally Christian because my my parents are and my brother and his family are are I. I don't know if they all still go to church. I know my mom's still go to church but We were raised Christian. We were raised. You know which a lot of that is me in high school rebelling against or I want. I wasn't even rebelling at that point. It was me feeling so conflicted because I was understanding all these things about God and understanding how I fit into it and realizing that everything I was thinking feeling and doing was a sin and everything that I was everything that I was was hated in the eyes of God. You know and also you know like we. We worship Jesus Christ. That looks like Brad Pitt. I mean we worship of Jesus Christ with white skin and who flaxen hair and we're told that this is this is whose image we that God made and I don't look like that and I I got tired of feeling like I was crap and so I I think I over very long period of time developed this idea that I need to sort of go my own way and I think I got out of the idea of religion in. Creationism was a big part of it. Because I just couldn't believe in it especially in the face of evolution and I started to answer your initial question I sound so gooby of me and my group I mean Gwyneth paltrow but it sounds so like new agey. I kind of believe in energy I believe in. I believe that there are. I don't believe that there's anything in the world that can't be understood. That doesn't mean that we can understand it. There are so many things in the world in the universe that we are outside of the capacity of our understanding them. That doesn't mean that they don't have a logic or that they don't have a rationale to it. The idea of of God and I don't want to offend anyone but like the idea of God is inherently illogical right and it's it it supposes a level of belief in it supposes a BA- level a level of faith that I think is really beautiful and admirable to anyone that has it. It's just not for me. It's just not I really tried to let logic and reason rationality guide the way I think and I said so in that regard and I try to. I try to use the idea of like you know matter is neither created nor destroyed so all all the things that we have today have been around since the beginning of time and they will be until the end of time and that is something that we can understand and that is something that is to a certain extent tangible. But it's also something. That's totally understandable. What's the word I'm looking for? It's totally something that we can't even thank you something. That's totally incomprehensible it. Something we can't fathom so that for me is religion. That for me is spirituality. This idea that there is. We have all the tools of the world at our disposal right now. We don't understand them all. We won't understand them all boat. We could understand them and someone or something could understand it and for a lot of people may be that idea is God and maybe that is what their faith and religion are which is why the last thing I would ever want to do is disrespect anyone's faith or belief system. I just think that I've decided to call that thing. That thing is my sort of spirituality that that idea that the world can be understood but we won't necessarily understand it's an unsolved mystery. Yeah we're comfortable like the show. I used to watch the nineties. My mom unsolved mysteries religion song. Let the mystery be from Iris. Dement oh yeah no did pull it up on your on your spotify or apple music. The second thing for US Dave. This various immerse singer for us. I'm not going to do. That is also the theme song from the leftovers. That show was my religion. Okay see I watched the first two or three episodes of that show and it was not getting into it and I love Damon Lindelof. I love lost. Oh my God watchmen is the best thing. I think I've ever seen ever Speaking of like mainstream television especially for a black person that show the things. Have you seen it? I'm like halfway through but have you seen it. I did it all now. Oh my God the second you get home. I'll I'll look up the song that you just told Cup. If you start watching watchmen. Can we agree on that? It's a it's a. It's a deal so I don't remember the name of the song but I remember it would be less. Let the mystery be led the mystery. Be Okay you asked me what I was watching. Watchmen is something that I I think everyone in the world needs to watch it deals with the the The nine hundred twenty one massacre in Oklahoma that no one talks about but history has sort of. I won't say forgotten but you know we you know it was. It was a massacre of a black town. A Black Wall Street the successful black community that was destroyed. Because why people didn't like it basically and you know to have that you're launching point for a show about like sort of latter day superheroes foes superheroes. It's just brilliant. And and then the way it weaves black legacy Black history into the show the way the origin story of the have you gotten to that episode the or destroy of hooded justice. No I won't ruin anything but the way it leaves in the history of the KKK the history of racism in this country. It uses All of that to establish a black superhero that is as a black person who has often felt overlooked and under seen. It was such a powerful moment of like. Oh I'm seeing right now and and you know there's elements of clearness there's elements of Black Women with Regina King are given such a great Platform to show a a multitude of ideas and and different ways than what? We've just always seen with regard to black people. It's just it's the most amazing show. I think I've ever seen I don't know how we got on that. And I Apologize Leftovers. Damon. Yes so that's what I was saying. I there was. I watched the first episode or something or two episodes and there was a scene where they like stoned a woman to death who was smoking and like. I was just like. I don't know if I'm feeling this but then everyone told me that's like oh you got to stick with it though especially the next couple of seasons. Yes so good. He's pretty profound. And and Dowd and Carrie coon and this cast is just incredible. But Yeah it's not a fun ride now. It's like everything I was fearing about the inheritance. All exactly what you would experience. I would say it's Yeah. It's everything you get with regard to the inheritance. It's everything you think like the leftovers is going to be. But it's like so it's so fun and lights in in many regards and then it's really having intense other regards. I can't wait. I have to check out the leftovers. I will definitely give that another shot because all really good things. They've all got homework. Yes we do. We'RE GONNA discuss it on the dance floor at Oil Cantieri while line dancing Jordan.

"When you're not acting on Broadway what's happening in your dating life at the moment. Oh God oh we're going right into So just talk about this. I've kind of openly embraced Pommery now okay. Which has been new and exciting. And I. I have two guys that I've been seeing One his name is Jose he's lovely. He's the most wonderful man in the world and he's a stylist. He lives here and The other guy that I'm seeing is this actor Australian actor named grant and He's in and out a lot with work and life and stuff but Yeah the the dating life has actually been pretty good. I had a really intense relationship like five or six years ago. That like N did not so great. I was I was cheated on a in a pretty bad way. It kind of turned me off to the traditional model of relationships a little bit and also You know sort of what we were talking about earlier with regard to as gay people we sort of choose the families that we have And I just realized that like my friends or so so important to me and one thing that always happened when I would be in relationships or when my friends would be in relationships is you'd meet that other person and the friends would fall by the wayside and I got really tired of that because I realized that like I have a best friend named Mika. Mika Jennings is one of the most amazing actors in the world by But I have a best friend who He's kind of my life partner. And the the one thing that differentiates us from any other couples that we just don't have sex and I sort of got tired of the idea of needing to put him underneath everyone else in my life when I need to be needing to put him underneath the men that I was dating and so I just sort of developed a mentality that like no. I think I'm going to think of my relationships as kind of like sphere and I'm sort of in the middle of that sphere and you know they're sort of dots. That are closer to me. They're dots that are farther away but we're all sort of their together and all of those relationships have. I don't WANNA say equal importance but a certain level of importance. And you know like we all do we get different things from different people and I think it's I don't want to anyone who's found a life partner anyone who's a in a monogamous relationship I don't I'm not the type of person who who can find everything that I need in one person. I'm a very needy and demanding and difficult person so I'm a lot for one people to one person to handle. I'm a lot for two people to handle as well But you know I. I don't know what it's opened up for me is the ability to recognize that. I love the way I love and I express desire and affection. The way I express it. And it's it's it's kind of like a one day at a time kind of thing where I'm just sort of like. There is no model for this. I don't you know when you when you're doing the monogamous thing. You think years ahead like. Oh we're going to grow old together and we're GONNA die together or whatever. There's no model for this so it's scary at times and it's really weird and you know every day is a conversation with both. Jose and grant trying to navigate this But you know it's exciting and it's cool and it feels like I'm sort of carving my own path in the same way that I'm covering my own career path and sort of carbon my own romantic path as well. What what did did one come? I was Jose for so doing a show. And Jose Came to see it and we ended up chatting and we started dating and So that sort of took off the way it was and then grant I Cross each other's paths a couple months later and he and I sort of started talking his situations really complicated because he's actually from Australia. I won't give away too much of his life but he's got a lot going on in his life as well. So yeah it's been this weird thing where I'm sort of just navigating it day by day and so was the idea that you monogamous relationship and tell you meg Ryan and realize you didn't know I knew when I started. I knew before I started dating Jose that I've that I've been kind of thinking this for a few years now. The sort of traditional model of relationships or at least a monogamous relationship. I think just wasn't working for me and again there's absolutely no judgments or no criticism for anyone for whom that is what they want. But it just wasn't true me and I was never really feeling fulfilled or happy That's not to say that the men that I'm seeing right now are not fulfilling me. I mean they are. That's sort of why I'm remaining open to them. But it's just a way of of not putting I don't WanNa say not putting pressure on relationships because there's certainly expectations in there is pressure on these relationships away. There is with any relationship. But it's I think it just takes a lot of the the things that I don't feel have worked for me in the passes just trying to make it work for me now and who knows I eventually. I perhaps could decide with one of them that I want to be monogamous or I could decide that relationships in general are not for me anymore at all and I'm really trying to follow whatever path going on right now. Are you sorry if I'm asking too many questions about sort of the rules but I know I always just fascinated by kind of the logistics are? Do they know each other they do not okay. And that's by design kind of by design. I mean.

Mercedes is so real and so heartbreaking and I it's just such like a great microcosm for like what's going on in the world right now but like rather than people fighting and rather backbiting and this stuff like it's actually just people trying to meet each other and understand each other and and discover each other which I think is so fascinating so cool.

"The legacy of AIDS and how we Pass on our stories from one generation to another. You know it's the general idea of it. Is You know with any sort of demographic or any sort of minority group especially in underrepresented one. There is this idea of lineage as a black person. I know that if I have biological children those children will be black. And there is a sort of inherent sense of lineage. There's an inherent sense of history. That goes along with that as gay people. We don't necessarily have that. You know you the family that you have as gay people as sort of a family that you find in a family that you create and the only way to pass on our lineage or to pass on our legacy is through story and through communication and so the play is really about sharing those stories and sharing the idea of who and what we are and I think a major part of that you know a major way that gay people have survived all this time is through our humor and through the ability to laugh and what Matthew does so eloquently I think is managed to get some pretty heavy themes and ideas into the world of the show but we really are trying to make you laugh though no time it really is A. It's not a light show but it is a funny show. It's a very funny show. We're GONNA experience all the emotions. Yes you will including laughter. Yes you will absolutely sobbing. Yeah you know. I've been doing this show now. We started performances in September twenty seventh and I am still crying every day almost every day when we do the show and you know could be one of those actually things where you're like. I know I have to cry right now. But it's it's really not that it's a really lovely world and so much of what Matthew has put out there. And so much of what we have built as an ensemble and as a as a sort of family at this point is this sense of. Camaraderie I. I'm deeply feeling things when my fellow actors are going through things and it's it's such a beautiful experience to get to do and yeah it's hard it it it takes a lot out of you. It's kind of emotionally wrenching. It is lovely because at the end of the day. You're sort of up there watching your friends and you're watching your family so it doesn't feel as difficult as it. Could I guess and the pedigree of it is just kind of staggering right? I mean it was. It had already had a life in London before you came along right so it already had. You know sort of garnered all of these awards. One like Olivier's in everything. Yeah so what was it. Walk us through your process of getting the role of God What where were you in life? What was a typical daylight for Jordan before this was happening where was I? I don't think we have enough time on this through where I wasn't life but I I had just come back from three years at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and I came back to New York. I've lived here for God. Nineteen years now and You know being an actor here is very difficult. You gotta go wherever the work is. And I. I've been really lucky in my career This is my Broadway debut. But I've I've gotten the chance to work with Peter Brook. I lived in Europe for a year and toured around Europe and Asia with Peter Brook's company and I worked with Young Jean Lee who actually just had a show on Broadway last year. Straight white men. I mean I toured with an earlier. Show of hers called the shipment and we toured all over the world. We went to the Sydney Opera House for festival. That was curated by Lou Reed And then I just did three years at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival so I've had this really cool and varied and we are career. But the you know there was always that specter of Broadway than I ever gotten to and and any actor. They can tell you though. I don't have any sites for Broadway or any everyone wants to get on Broadway. It's just one of those things that once you be. I remember saying this to my sister. After I booked the part like oh I I can no matter what happens for the of my life. I can always say that. I'm a Broadway actor. Yes really cool. As far as getting to the show. I went through four rounds of auditions in June The first three were like casting directors next round was the addition of Stephen and just in our director and associate director. Then we added Matthew the writer that was a third round. The fourth round was a three hour callback. It was a group callback. I was a nightmare. It was a nightmare but it was a nightmare nonetheless And in which. We got like twenty pages the night before and they said. Don't worry you don't have to be off book or anything but we were reading those for the next day and then So that all happened then I didn't get. I did not get the part but I think that they were sort of just like seeing. What else is out there and seeing you know they were sort of keeping me on the back burner because they liked me and then about a month later they called me back and said you know we really actually want to see you again for this so I was actually on the other side of the country and I had to fly myself back for A. I guess this would have been my physician now so this is now a week or two before we start rehearsals and they had me auditioned again. Found out that I got it and then I ended up going into rehearsals. This would be August now. You talk about this sort of legacy of the show. I was incredibly intimidated. Walking into that Room Matthew Lopez who this his Broadway debut as well but he's had a really established and lovely career. Then you have Stephen Daldry. Who is this legend? Who's done you know Billy Elliot? The hours of the reader. He's responsible for the crown. I mean to say that I was intimidated. Would be an understatement. But in some a lot of original cast and as the five main cast members were back with us. Well so what was Nice for me was that we had When you see the show There's like sort of a bunch of characters that are on. The periphery that I guess literally and figuratively actually That sort of interact with the main players and our help tell the story and help move the story along and all of us are from New York. All of us are new to the process here so we it was cool because we sort of got to start over while also building on something that they had already created in London and what was really exciting. What Matthew really wanted to do was Really build around this group of actors so seventy I think it's something like thirty percent of part one and like seventy percent of part two changed from London to Broadway because they really did want to cater for the actress that they were working with and wanted to make it specific to you know there's so much in the show that's just about life in New York and there were things that a London audience wasn't necessarily hooking into that we wanted to make a little more tangible radio guardian. We wanted make a little more applicable for neo audience and Matthew was really open to matthews whole. Matty's work ethic is so admirable because he just really wants to. He's always trying to perfect it. He's always trying to make it better. Whatever that means for an artist And it was exciting because he was really open to suggestion is really open to working and collaborating with the actors But Yeah I mean entering into that universe was very intimidating but ultimately in the same way that Matthew tries to in the play Stephen Justin and Matthew really wanted us to not have any sort of sense of intimidation or like. You don't belong or anything like that. It was. We are all in this room. We're all artists. I mean the first day matthew came up to me and and because they know that they put me through the ringer with the auditions. And the Matthew. Stephen both came up to me individually and said we are so happy that you're in this room so happy to have you so that was a really nice. Yes way to get the fear out of my a little bit. And how much longer are you doing it right now? We are open ended so we could run as long as audiences. WanNa keep coming and seeing Right now we are selling tickets. I believe through June eighth. Something like that So yeah we are. We're here for at least a few more months and you know we'll see I mean I. I know that there are definitely trying to keep us open through the tonys and see how that all pans out and if gets Tony KNOBS and especially if we get some Tony Wins I think we we could be here for a little while. I feel like it's happening now. Yeah it's exciting. Do you have time to consume anything else movies TV. That's actually about all. I can consume right now so like I was saying. `I veg out on Monday and Tuesday and so I much you know to my own dismay I i. I'm I always like sites. Might getting my sights on doing more and running errands and getting stuff done but then you get to that Monday and Tuesday. You're like I can't do anything so I'm just sort of hanging out at home watching movies a lot. Yeah TV lot. You've which you've earned the right to do by. You GotTa let your Sake you thank you for saying what. What are you watching? What's in the queue at the moment Okay so my guilty pleasure at the moment is this reality. Show called the circle. Okay all right here. We talk about this obsessed with this show. Where are you in the show right? I'm not that far. I'm only like five episodes. I don't even know how many episodes there are twelve. So I'm only like how like I. They just The third catfish guy just got introduced. So the the guy who's he's using the really hot blonde guy his avatar Cafes Alex. We're talking about what's that Alex. Yeah Alex Them Guy who wears the pants? That are flowing. Yeah I always see the bottom of his feet somehow. Yeah so. He's always working with his feet while he's while he's upset it's a lot and it's it's weird. I'm weirdly obsessed with this show because it's it's so it could never happened before like it's it's such a product of our time right now and it's the thing that I'm having a tough time with especially as an actor. Is that like no one's talking to each other weird like they're all in their own individual pods and talking to a screen and the screen is helping them communicate with each other and no one's riding emojis..

And you're like I don't buy it. Oh interesting I think he is. Sometimes I think people make the mistake of thinking. This accent will be my personality and it's like no. It's uninteresting IDA. I've never found that to me an issue. I find him so aggressively nerdy. That is almost hot. I see that yeah I get it I get hashing it about dumb bullshit. I don't know I like that.

You know it's kind of Mondays and Tuesdays are real days off so I kind of use those to veg out and I try to make the week a little bit more active so I was just running errands and I actually had to put myself on tape for another audition tape. Doing this never ends. The struggle never ends so Yeah I mean on Thursdays and Fridays I try to take it somewhat easy because you know The show is the show takes a lot out of us. Three and a half hours long When we're doing just one show. We're doing to show days at seven hours so it's a lot but Yeah I try to get stuff done. So during the week you're you're you're SORTA alternating part one part two no actually so during the week so we work Wednesday through Sunday and Wednesdays Saturdays and Sundays. We do two shows. We do a matinee of part one and then in the evening we do part two and then Thursday and Friday. We just part one in the evenings So there's never a day that we do part to you by itself. Oh got it. Yeah so part. One is getting a little more love to you know. I think that maybe because it's a bit of a gamble doing a show like this. I think that they're sort of banking on people. Maybe taking the chance of JESSE IN PART ONE. And if they're into it which most people are They'll come back and see part two. That's true because you don't want to take a gamble and jumping on partout and then yeah exactly the cool thing about the world that matthew built is that You can do it individually. I do a little bit more in part two so when I have friends that are coming in. And they're like we can only see one. Which one should we see? I sort of sadly say if you could only see one come see part two because I do a little bit more in it And I'm a little worried that they're not gonNA understand exactly what's going on but they you know after the first five ten minutes or so they kind of. Hook into what we're doing and they don't really have any trouble but I would definitely recommend seeing both part I'm doing. The full is Sunday. We're doing it in the heartland. Then Yeah Okay how? Much time we're getting off in between does you're GONNA get about two and a half hours. Oh Great Yeah we end at four thirty and then the next show will start at seven. Oh you can have a nice leisurely dinner. Earn the process Sacchi brief. Yeah it takes a lot out. I'm prepared for this to be heroin. I wouldn't say it's harrowing. You know what I will say is you know. That's the thing it sort of. It has this reputation of being this like epic big. I WANNA see sad but like oh you know serious heavy exactly and what I will say is that Wha- you know the first day of Rehearsal Matthew Satisfied Matthew Lopez writer saddest down and he was like everyone's GonNa be treating this like it's this big epic dramatic play and there are certainly elements of that in this world that he's created but really it's fun comedy. I mean he really did write a fun comedy of manners. It's about this group of friends and it's mostly about these two guys in a relationship and how their world sort of unravels and their relationship Develops and it really is very funny. I mean I think that's the thing that people were most surprised by the first act. Matthew lexicographer charm offensive. Macaroni to say that. Are I like half hour? Forty five minutes is like a full on charm offensive where we're really trying to get the audience to sort of let go of any preconceptions that they have about the world of this show people have that same feeling that you're you're having like. Oh my God. This is going to be a harrowing thing. I guess I should bring tissues. I should and it's true you should. You should absolutely bring some tissues be punched in the Gut. Brenly there's there's certainly some things I mean. That's that's matthews whole endeavor with this is I mean. It's it's as someone who does comedy as well. You are constantly trying to get a message through but the only way you can do that the only way you can share your ideas is to break down people's barriers and break down people's reservations so what we what we try to do in especially in that first act of their six acts altogether so we try to especially I. It's a lot but especially what we try to do in that first act is really just get any preconceptions or any notions of what you think. The world of the play is going to be. We sort of break that down and just try to let you ease into the lives of these people realize these characters and enjoy us and enjoy the world that we're building and it really is. I mean what Matthew Manages to do and what we've managed to do as a cast a and with the amazing direction of seizure. Stephen Daldry and just Martin is maintain a certain level of levity. I think throughout the seven hours which is not an easy thing to do. Especially when you're dealing with the themes and the sort of things that we're dealing with in the world of the show you know AIDS and the legacy of AIDS and how we Pass on our stories from one generation to another. You know it's the general idea of it..
Gov. Gavin Newsom at climate week
"Governor Gavin Newsom gave opening remarks today at climate week New York City it's an environmental action of it being held along side the United Nations climate summit Scott Barbour has more. California governor Gavin Newsom kicked off climate change NYC with a passionate speech Monday stressing the importance of fighting climate change and criticizing president Donald Trump for his actively anti environmental actions and policies. news and said that there was ample evidence of the dangers of climate change I have a change for us is not an abstract if you still have eight eight percent tell of doubt come the California. after historic wildfires back to back fifteen of the top most destructive wildfires themselves just the last ten years. stay with historic droughts. state with historic floods. mother nature has joined the conversation. I'm in week NYC the convention of panels and showcases for environmental advocates to discuss climate action I think around the United Nations climate summit during his speech Newsome praised his state progress on environmental issues and its position as a global leader in the fight against climate change he said that in California fossil fuels are becoming the out liars not the norm alternative energy into the state of California is fossil fuel energy alternative energy no longer defined by wind and solar and battery technology which are dominant now Connie's growing a fully functioning cap and trade program the most Ignatius low carbon green growth goals in the United States of America there's nothing left for me to sign it's a hundred percent across the board. Kevin Phillips is the director of Sierra Club California she agreed with Newsome that California and they want to be proud of in terms of its track record in fighting for the environment he's right in that we've done a lot in this state and certainly when you compare it to the rest of the country and when you look at some of the timing we've we've done some of these things in California was pushing it should be a call and came up with its first zero emission vehicle regulations back in the nineteen nineties so we have been a leader in many ways historically for the U. S. on various environmental issues. however Phyllis argue that California was still falling short in its self proclaimed role as global environmental leader. while Phillips agreed with news from decision at the state was improving renewable energy production and technology to put out the oil production export are still significant industries in California when it comes to transportation fossil fuel still dominate they will likely dominate unless we become more aggressive and the legislature and the governor becomes more aggressive in laying out a path for reducing production of oil in transitioning are an economy away from one specially in particular regions transitioning our economy in the state away from one that is dependent on oil production. California's only top ten producers of oil in the United States roughly equal in production to Alaska Alexandra navy is the California director with food and water watch an environment and public health nonprofit thank you said that she was disappointed in new sums lack of action to limit oil production not only because of its implications for climate change but also for the safety and health of Californians Gavin Newsom hasn't addressed the fossil fuel crisis in California we have over eighty thousand oil well over a hundred thousand miles of pipelines almost over three hundred gas powered gas fired power plants and this is what's making community sick every day right now families and children are living next to killing in their backyards are gas plants in their in their neighborhoods and this is what we want to see him do is take action to immediately halt the expansion of the fossil fuel industry and make a plan to shut shut it down. environmental advocates including bills Nike and Phillips say that at the very least there should be increased scrutiny and restrictions on where oil rigs can be placed in order to minimize the public health risk. gene see with the energy director and staff attorney at the center for biological diversity. it's an Arizona based environmental nonprofit who was present in New York to protest Newsome refusal to ban oil drilling in the state. in an interview with KPFA is Brian Atwood teacher she said it was not too late for someone to make the difficult but meaningful choices that needed to be made to stop climate change what we're talking about is essentially stopping the capture of our government by fossil fuel companies we see at the U. one year after year that oil and gas corporations are financing the claimants talks around the world very similarly in California they have been very influential on our politicians this is the exact moment where we need someone like Gavin Newsom to break through all of that noise and very clearly say climate emergency equal stopping fossil fuel extraction and I am going to step up and actually do that. Newsome for his part has said that he can make no progress on putting limitations on oil production without the support of the legislature which he's not sure he will receive. but the one climate summit is only scheduled for Monday climate week NYC is planned to run through Sunday September twenty ninth I'm Scott Bala pacifica radio
