Human rights activist involved in so many efforts around this world. This belafonte this morning former vice president. Al gore endorsed howard dean as the democratic candidate for the presidency. What's your view of the democratic candidates. Have you made your choice yet. Malloy not made my choice yet. I think that the with all of the verbiage verbiage has been imparted on citizens democratic party. In many of the democratic candidates yet the talk in the innova in-depth way until the problems into the anguish into the fears into the pain. Our citizens are experiencing. I think the polemics have been very clearly Designed to to hit a certain kind of rhythm that politicians usually hit and they sell their wares according to the style of television and sound bites and things that they feel will be assured of getting on the six o'clock news. But i think american society is more than a sound bite. I think the way which we need to him. These candidates in far more detailed way about how they will handle policy how they really take care many of the issues that plague us. I think that it's still a lot left to be desired occasion to talk with the candidate. Of course nick last evening and in that in the same environment of discussion. I pointed out that i live among the poor. That's the work that i do i i. I'm deeply involved in the prison system. In the united states of america work was remarkable. Then some wardens run some of the most violent penal institutions in this country. Like -sarily ibaka out in los angeles county jail warden thin up another california and i watched what goes on with the prison population a matter of public policy. We build more prisons in the united states in america and build churches that we built schools or then we bill healthcare centers and we are now turning the prison of The god conduct and administration to the private sector well in the united states american fee enterprising and capitalism. Nobody takes on real estate. Did they don't expect to make profit from and in order to make profit from facilities such as a prisoner.

We have more black men and women in prison. We have in the universities of america. What's being said to the to the young people america's panic black poor who make up the prison population that we're building more. We have the largest prison population in the world larger than china or india. We have the that that that is not that does not sit. Well what what does a candidate say about that. I'm interested in hearing about iraq about foreign policy. What do you do with the devastation of healthcare. You're sitting and talking about saving medicaid medicare and you talk about finding ways. It was to make prices more affordable to citizens we get into the detail of this kind of a giant did gerrymandering and juggling of concepts within a frame of something that doesn't work to begin with the two things that should be in the united states of america as a matter of right and wrong ago in part of our a fabric of existence in that education should be completely free not a cost to be attributed to anybody who goes out to learn from the childhood until you get out of the university and know how can need any citizen in. This country should be should should cost citizens of this country anything. We can find eighty seven billion dollars on a minutes notice to send baghdad in iraq to continue further mischief in that region. And leave these kinds of issues here in america on attended. I refuse to believe that. We do not have the financial and economic resource and the wherewithal to treat our citizens to a fair and open democratic healthcare. An indication system all right. Let's take a call or here in arlington virginia. Good morning duke. Good morning diane. And welcome to one of my favorite singers harry. Belafonte good yes. I am calling because Last night i participated with a lot of concerns. Venezuelans where a letter was handed to mr belafonte with three hundred and fifty concern venezuelans in the washington. Dc area because of his tacit support for the chavez government in venezuela because of the screening of a documentary called. The revolution will not be televised which has been demonstrated to be more for propaganda film than them them. Then a documentary. My comments from mr belafonte and question is primarily why he's so supportive of the chavez government which has been So much against human rights. All right sir. let's hear ms develop fontes. The the caller for his His remarks and for the question that he's put before me. I think you should not be too hasty and trying to The fine in my commitment to what goes on in venezuela is in support of a personality or individual what. I'm dealing with a deep caring for the democratic process and for was happening to the venezuelan people if you will examine the history of my life and my commitments to societies and issues and governments there in struggle trying to create an to maintain a democracy. The finite behavior has a consistency to and very little of that. Haiti has to do with personalities. I don't know mr surveys. I've never met him. I do know however that he was elected onto a democratic process with the constitution. That was putting but that was put in and a referendum that was supported and voted upon by the venezuelan people there was a process within that constitutional mandate and is that you will the individual stays in office until his term of office has ended and this society goes back to the polls in votes. I have too often seen american policy. Nations are in their infancy as democracies become totally dismantled because the united states policy through the cia through many of its lending agencies to its support mechanisms and legislation and politics have undermined the best interest of these nations because we didn't find their policy.

Marketable organization here in washington called transafrica and it was created in nineteen seventy seven as an organization that would monitor american policy as it relates to africa and parts of the world that make up the african diaspora. And we've had a long journey as an organization We spearheaded the anti-apartheid movement. In american did much to a focus. America's attention on the issues of apartheid south africa ultimately the release of nelson mandela. We've been also speaking on policies and issues that affect the caribbean region in particular haiti. But we also talked to other regions as well and in transafrica. We have a connected aspect to the organization called the transafrica forum which is an educational arm of transafrica which is a lobbying organization. An in transafrica forum. We have a division. Call the authorized foreign policy library and authorized At the height of great popularity as a great athlete and tennis plan is really a great american had believes somewhat over-simplified way that he could just go to south africa and played tennis before an integrated audience and desegregate the tennis courts of south africa. That perhaps it would be a new dawning on the whole horizon for the whole issue of apartheid and he went there in the face of the sanctions and the boycott and a lot of people are concerned that he violated a sanctions however when author went and had direct experience that he had in south africa. He not only understood that his position was rather naive Even even generally so and he became quite active and deeply committed to lending himself in in political and social support for the cause of a sanctions against south africa. The anti-apartheid movement he created and all within the organization called artists and athletes against apartheid. And out of that and his commitment to be on the board for the forum he created the author ash Foreign policy library which was for the purpose of trying to attract enough books and memorablilia. That not only told us about africa from traditional sources of of of material but to try to fine unusual material that gave another point of view on what africa is what the history of the continent has been and whereas going and what are the real voices of the current leaders and current policies and also to monitor carefully what the united states does in its relationship to that continent. Our event amar is being held at the true reformer building at twelve hundred use street northwest washington and in that building people gathering.

And of course you have been not only outspoken about africa. But you've been quite vocal in your opposition to the war in iraq. it was. It was theodore roosevelt. Who once said and i paraphrase here. The essence of his statement was that when the state begins to unfold villainy that will undermine the constitution of this nation and again tonight the night citizens that which is rightfully theirs by the law. It is incumbent upon citizens not only Take note of this characteristic but also exert right to descend and to be vocal against such such intervention. And i think that what's going on with the carter administration has been in huge violations much that our constitution protects. Well is in the laws that are coming about now and home security the way in which ashcroft has piloted these new laws which under the guise of The security of this country has now Said that The justice system has the right to arrest citizens without charge to hold them in incarceration for as long as they deem necessary Without the benefit of counsel that that kind of behavior is just completely against the constitution of this country and what are what our nation for now one can argue cannot one that perhaps this country a has not been attacked again because of some of those ground rules that the attorney general and this administration had put into place..

Courtesy Johnny Davis I'm Jackie O'Brien that. Is the best co host in the Game Lacy Moseley. was. I'm happy to be here this so much. Trending. I know Yeah. Let's tell the people what's trending Harry Belafonte is trending. Got Me worried he is trending because there's like footage of him. Falling Asleep. Adjusted to make it look like it was Biden. So basically, they used footage of an interview on a newscast where the newscasters like and I believe he's asleep basically. Because Harry Belafonte fell asleep during. A press run because man is busy and they cut him out put Joe Biden in deep faked it and a now it's you know it's just right wing propaganda being used to make it seem like Joe Biden is. Even older and sleep easier then he is. And that's the column sleepy. Joe. Makes Total Sense. It's hard to tell if he's sleeping or not because his eyes are like little coin slots but. I. Think this is unfair. Right. Also, I just hate to see any older person trending like if I see a person who's over seventy trending like my heart is getting tight. And Betty White please not making Betty White Trent. Yes. We'll speaking of people over the age of seventy a bill Maher is Trent just joking. Heart is trending for his hot take that trump might win. That's not the most interesting angle to take Michael. Moore, was talking about that. We've been talking about it for about a year now no matter what the polls say it seems like he probably has an advantage over the polling averages over what the polling averages would tell you and he has a lot of enthusiasm. The enthusiasm gap is real but. The the more interesting angle on this Bill Maher story is something Lacey that you've revealed when we come, you saw that he was trending. Okay I'll tell you guys this. Don't attack me on twitter. I. Was a little misguided. Young Woman I had a crush on bill, Maher I watch his show on HBO like every night and I thought he was smart and cute. That blew my. Will Not. Stop judging me hanging out at all because it's not. It's not a it's not uncommon right? Like he is famous or at least in his own mind he is. infamous. Ladies Man. So I I guess I'd always assumed he was kind of full of Shit, but you're telling me not. So you tapped into something that's out. There was something about him. Yeah I think way walks out to that dump down down down down down down that music comment. Your heart starts beating a little bit faster. Also. Yeah. You're not judging me but you are looking at me in this. Manner that's just like why. Because I feel like I finally have like this is the Rosetta Stone. This is somebody who can answer a mystery that has long plagued is like so what what is it about him? Is that just kind of his general like having his shit together like thinking he knows everything if no I don't know I was like he was smug and really smart and right super liberal and and I was like Oh. Yeah that's. A totally. I get paid actually now like let's creep energy and he's obviously super duper problematic. But yeah, that was I. Don't know why I felt like I need to get off my chest but I really confessed it to you. So glad you did. All right. Let's talk about while we're on the subject of you and Bill Maher or let's talk about marriage marriage is trending. I could potentially hear wedding bells in the future for you and Mr Mar but. just being an asshole, but marriage is trending. This is one of those things where two stories overlap and they're about the same thing. So there's two celebrity stories Katy Perry. Came out and talked about her marriage to Russell brand and how those very difficult and then Brad Pitt is trending because he is dating a woman who is married who is in an open marriage to a elderly man. So I mean Bill Bill Brad Oh God owner. Brad Pitt and really the. Actor of Bill Maher's. Of? Type and it's. When women who are in a contract with another man? Screw. That's A Win papers like ooh. Not The first time. So actually I guess that wasn't his he was in a marriage when Angelina Jolie in him were hook it up. So. She was just in a long-term blood bond with billy's Bob. Thornton. Like each other and right dribbling. had. Somebody else's blood flowing through your veins? It's seems like a marriage. I. Mean. As long as they're consenting adults who are down for what they're doing like absolutely, Why not? Yeah. The Guy Seems like he's like, yeah, whatever. He's going on dates with them, right? seriously. Brad Pitt probably. The Best Guy. Conceivably. To get cheated on with because it's just like yeah, I. Mean I get that. Totally understandable. Can't can't have your feelings hurt by that although you'll probably never see your significant other again but. You're absolutely right like your significant others comes home no matter the sex and they're like look Brad Pitt, is giving me p now I just like all right well, your suitcases. You while it lasted, I might get mad at Brad Pitt. Kid say goodbye to Mommy. Drop Mommy off at Brad Pitt's our. The place. God I think he just looked at me now it was you. All right well, I'll get the rest of the bags out of the car and then I'll get out of here. Lion is trending because there's just as video of a lion walking through a traffic jam in I. Don't know where but the lion is bigger than I realized lions were lions are enormous. Any also has like a dope haircut which like his main goes all the way down to his chest. which I respect. I ever get lions with scale like that like in. Other lions right other lions and then like a crumpled animal that they just took down. But yeah, we rarely see people chilling with lines and it's just does not seem bothered at all by any anything that's happening around them. lions. Very cool.

"Hey guys, what can you as an individual do to help? Break the cycles of rage, pain, fear and violence that continued to grip, America and many other parts of the world, relating to the issue of race. Even though our guest this week was shot at by white police officers when he was only eleven, and then later in his life, had his house firebombed allegedly by local racists in the town where he was living. Even though he's gone through all of that, he is still hopeful that now is a moment of true, potential and opportunity to transform what he calls America's Racial Karma and by extension ourselves. Dr Larry Ward is a lay minister in the lineage of the Great. Vietnamese master TechNet Han. He's an advisor to the executive leadership institute at the Peter F Drucker School of Management He's done consulting work with fortune, five hundred companies, and he has a PhD in religious studies with an emphasis on Buddhism. His forthcoming book is called America's Racial Karma. Here, we go with Dr Larry Ward. Nice to meet you remotely, and for doing this sure nice to meet you, too. Take good care. We have a lot of meditators who listen to the show and so. I'd love to know more about what you do in your own mind when you feel the. The kind of suffering where you're. Empathizing with the families of these of these young people have been killed, or when memories are coming up for you from your own personal right story I, thank. Two pieces are important to. This is also the intergenerational. Flow of trauma. And it is also. The trauma experienced on the land in which we live. And so how I practice caring for myself different ways. Depending on what I'm feeling. etc so sometimes. I put on just music. And listen to music. That will help me move energy. That may be stuck somewhere in my body out. Or. What do you like through well? All kinds of music Oh, I have a pretty wide. Pretty wide. Range of music I like depending on the mood or what I'm feeling needs to be processed. Michael Jackson Helps me a lot with some of his particular songs, especially the one he was sung at his memorial. Will you be there? Harry Belafonte's Day. When I need to feel like beauty is still in the world. Campaign the line no I do. Try to remember I'm kind of a romantic at heart and so that. That soothes that part of me. That helps me remember. Life is beautiful. that it can be captured and word and sound and vibration, and in color. Sometimes I. Listen or observe an Natalie stall someone. WHO's a brilliant conductor? especially in her version of Hombre, Ma Fu. So sometimes. I go the classical route. And choose different melodies and symphonies that also can move energy all of our. Creative! Arts and methods from my ancestors in one way designed to do these things, but if we don't learn to master them and don't learn to take the time to do them. We just as my grandmother used to say, running around with like chickens with our heads cut off. So, you put the music on and dance as a way to get the energy to move flowing. Yeah, sometimes I dance sometimes I cry sometimes I lay down and just let the sound and the music's music wash over my body. Sometime inspires a poem, etc, or another song that I find. Healing. And energizing and recovering to listen to so I don't get lost in my pain. And sometimes always every day. I go outside. So one of my practices daily at morning noon and night if I can is to be outside of four.

A Moment in Time, with Shari Belafonte
"Today. We're GONNA be talking sheriff about photography. So let's get into it Sherry. Welcome to our show. It's so great having Jose here so you have grown up around cameras now as a little kid all my life cameras aimed at you most again. Your Dad was Trenton Center. He was big deal. Back in the fifties sixties seventies. He broke down a lot of walls. Again everybody's familiar with his music and his acting and everything else. So you're smiling laughing about so. I was very hyperactive. Attention deficit as a child. I still lamb a little curtail with certain things now making native American blood you know wearing a bright orange camp right now you WanNa talk about it. Yeah Orange there you go. There's fast on. Go ahead I'm sorry. My Grandmother gave me my first Brownie camera. Now that's how far back I with the fan flash that you put the light bulb shit so I had that one. I was four years old. How many megapixel was and you would get this little tiny roll of film that you would put inside that Yummy and That was my first foray into being behind the camera and then instamatic semantic when I was I think I had a funny little polaroid camera that we had them all And my first legitimate camera was a pentax when I was eleven years old. Okay I was in boarding school by Matic or h three the it was. You know I can't remember I just. It was a thirty five millimeter Pentax Camera. That was dad's I know. Dad had a SPA top. Any passed it down to me so my entire high school was spent in the dark room. I smell like smoke. That was really attractive. Smell coming out of the yellow fingernails sitting in the dark. You Know Rolling and Rolling Rolling Rolling and then you know praying that you could put it in the CAN. It would come out and it wasn't all crumpled and you know so. Yeah I spent a good part of my earlier years behind the camera. And then of course like you said being Harry's daughter you know when we when he was on tour somewhere and there's Paparazzi or people taking pictures of us all the time and then Harry took pictures of us all the time that we never saw and it was the biggest joke because he was he always got get over there. Get OVER THERE. Get over there. Stop Stop Standards There. Hundreds and hundreds of pictures that were taken by. Harry and we've never seen a single one single. And why do you think that's the case? He just too busy to Kinda know if he ever developed and I don't know if there was even filmed the camera I think he had these Lycos and he just you know he just kept shooting once in a while. We saw him because he would. When he was a touring he would have these The program with this and it was always the big color program that would come with new. Buy A ticket and there would be pictures of us you know in there and we go to dad. Shoot that picture around. The house was photography kind of a respected medium. Was it an art to be an art. He did have a darkroom which he never went into. He just had it in the back next his recording studio but he did use a recording studio. Did use the recording. But Yeah we always have been shutterbugs. I think the whole definitely me more so than I think my siblings but Harry was definitely behind the camera. He was into like us us a very like a like like like scandal. And what about the Paparazzi and stuff? Maybe it wasn't. I can't even say that it wasn't like it is now because Paparazzi but was it A pain in the bud. Was it something that you guys so I was so used to? You know because what happened is my hair Harry. In Marguerite. My mom was marguerite. She passed away a few years go but they divorced. When I was very young actually separated woman was pregnant with me so there was always that kind of people trying to take pictures of that that was going on but there was a little more of a sense of decency for lack of better words with authorizing I mean. Now it's like Oh goes the there were lines. That were not crossed back then. I mean chances and stuff like that and they they definitely probably got onto your skin right probably worse today and usually think it was more of a magazine would come in. Ebony magazine would come in and say you know. Can we shoot you at home or and you know there was a story that was behind it and maybe the attorneys would go yet. It's good idea. Let's let's push that you know. Yeah we've always been around cameras for yourself. It's often family. What kind of things interested you would sort of you know? In the days I was in boarding school in Massachusetts so I I've always been a fan of black and white. I never learned how to process color and of course slides for the first things. You sort of learned. I never learned how to process but I was always into the dynamic of black and white so with the snow in Massachusetts. There was always the lights and shadows and you can stream you know falling through the ice no save. The camera saved the camera. Shot landscapes mostly landscapes. And then I shot everything and then as I got older and could start a fording stuff. I actually stopped shooting for a while and then when Sam. I got married thirty five years ago. Sam gave me my first Yoeskamnoer. I had by then already onto Canon cameras. But you know hey a one and the that great but then Sam gave me my first Kammer after maybe not shooting for ten years and we went on our honeymoon to Italy and I just shot like crazy like bags and bags film was carrying at the time. Kodak made what was called recording fill in the recording. Four seventy five four and as soon as you develop it would turn into a corkscrew that you can never hold flat that I didn't know because by then I wasn't processing okay but Three hundred you could you. Could you could set the The whatever you wanted I mean you couldn't with any film but this was if you decided to shoot at or if you wanted to shoot one hundred thirty two hundred or sixty four hundred. Just remember what you shot that at and you'd process it like if I shot four hundred three sixty I process it at four hundred by shoot at three sixty and I mean the detail was. It's crazy it's like mega pixels eight thousand and I just fell in love with that and then when Kodak stopped making it because they said well you know nobody's buying it because it was twelve dollars a roll and I know buying it. No please keep making and then shortly after you know film just kind of went by the wayside and now it's coming back. Is it coming back to us? Sales were up twenty percent last year. So you now actually have to try and find a film camera. I still actually have a rebel. Okay okay isn't it rebel? Originally rebels were killed. What was called the digital rebel? No megapixel but I did have for the Canon thirty and I was started shooting movies of Friends of mine. Who were directors said? Would you shoot stills movie and I remember get going into get a sound blimp made for my digital camera and the guys in you and Steven Spielberg's guy or the only people that have blimps for you. These eight thirty eight sixty. Whatever I add albertson blimp. Right Jacobsen Jacobsen recently closed down. There's no need for any other. No ex- exactly. I've got this this whole box downstairs in the garage is because like don't need the blimp. Next time lenses by the I worked on a movie as recently as Twenty fifteen and with a digital camera and they recorded a blimp ahead to go rent one. I mean even even that little clique. If you're onset now we have an issue thousand frames so that one was especially digital you shoot so fast. The first movie I did shoot I had asked me me. Leaders a friend of mine and she also is the executive producer and director of the morning. Show but at the time going back. You know fifteen twenty years. Whenever it was that I was shooting this I said to her. You know this is the first time shooting for a movie. What she's just keeps shooting shoot. Shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot so I did. I shot eight thousand seven hundred and seventy eight frames and thought okay. You know. I'm their mom. Put them all and give them. And then oh no we just need your best hundred. It took me like three weeks to go through every single one of those because I really looked like I was shooting movie. Everything was so slightly different. They know what would you take away from that experience? Really get an editor back to that five role mentality you know. They'll have a budget for three to five roles. And that's what you did shooting digital change anything when you when you shoot because obviously it did change a lot for a lot of people in this idea of shooting maybe too much or a lot or just the freedom they can give you. Some really changed a lot of people's now you know everything is it cyclical now. I've barely picked up my camera now. Also have a Sony seven hours and shooting with my Samsung Galaxy's the galaxy the first galaxy thing. I had a four note for one of the earlier. Ones the best pictures I've ever seen. I went on my God. Look at these pictures that I'm getting on my phone and now I have a lot of my family's mostly apple. Nothing you know not against apple but galaxies have much better pictures you know the Samsung just really has the better technology shooting with your phone and I know friends of mine even say your pictures are so much better than mine. Why is that slow data Samsung if Samsung only made and take get another phone? Get Your Samsung Stolz. But I still like I still like the weight of having a camera and shooting the cameras a different different animal. But now you know. There's a difference for photographers. I never was would call professional photography gallery shows and stuff but I'm not like Greg Gorman. Who was a friend of mine? I didn't shoot and I'm not making money like that as a photographer. And right now so many you can take so many pictures. I mean anybody can get good picture with their phone. You know you can. It's easier to get good pictures now than it used to be. You know you'd have to have a professional photographer do that. Well now I you know people take headshots their phones movies with your eyes. You can do anything. Us forces us to kind of rethink what I should be taking pictures of. And how many pictures should be taking reassessed kind of the nature of it and that's happening. I think you know this return to film. We're seeing people kind of wanting to slow back down a little bit trying to figure out what what's the basis of it. That's really what it is. It's it's a medium. It's like if you're an oil painter if you're into acrylics or if you're doing you know pencil drawings if you're into sculpture it's a it's all worthy it's just a matter of what your taste isn't what it is that you're shooting at that
