"What? Why? Billie Holiday? I think it's really holidays. She's just very godmother, kind of each character for her and she featured in the film and she's It's like it's kind of a hopeful. Um Loving presence. I think, Billy probably. You know, this is a woman who Made something beautiful out of tragedy she had Such a difficult life. And suffered a lot of tragic incidences and was able to still pour it out of her and give us Something really remarkable and beautiful. And so I think that she was probably a natural choice for my husband. I think it was an instinctive Um All like I have her and and to me in terms of making sense of it. I think it probably came from that. Someone who took something all this tragedy and made something beautiful. Don't know if you know the answer to this question. I was watching the trailer, and there seems to be a Billie Holiday song in the soundtrack of that trailer. Is that Billie Holiday or is that a sound alike? It's really holiday. Wow. Okay, I gotta go Look that up because I didn't. I did not know that song. I'm a Billie Holiday fan, and they did not know that song. It's I think for the trip in the movie, there's Billie Holiday's in the movie, so I'm sure that's the one. It's, uh, you know, he did. He got some remarkable music. I mean, and and things that are so impossible to get, But that's Kind of how my husband is. He's like really insisted. It really pushes and and knocked down, you know, beats down doors until he gets people and really, and it's the beauty is that the artist? And companies. All the films and approved the songs because they really they thought it served it well, and they believed in it. And so it's a testament to the film itself, and they they trusted what he was going to do with it. A lot of it is shot in black and white, which for me is remarkable. I love a well lit black and white production. Uh, didn't as an actress, do you do anything different when you know it's going to be black and white? I don't want to do that. I don't want to be. I mean, and I You know, uh, people probably do. Um, but I'm I'm going off. I'm trusting him for how he wants it presented. In all of it. Everything, and if it's you know, if it's ugly, it's ugly. If it's you know if it's glamour, if glamorous is, however, he wants it to be. I want to be true to what the pieces and not get in the way of that because of my own. Um I don't know Al vanity or my own, um, concerns. I wouldn't discuss it with him and I do. I talked to him about it and trust that he's getting what he needs. Or what he's trying to convey. And and let it go. I mean, you know, different if you're working with somebody who you feel differently about, I'm sure but, um, yeah, that was the situation here. Sweet thing. It is available in virtual theaters. Now it stars Karyn Parsons and members of her family remarkable picture that I think you could. You should curl up with this weekend. And I thank you for joining us, Karen and I look forward to the next project you and your husband do together. Thank you so much. This.

"And her sense of herself as an activist saying rise up which is a song i wrote two years ago and it was adopted by the black lives matter movement which was probably my greatest honor with song. The obamas have become singing at the white house. I've had people literally looking in the face inside. I was gonna kill myself until i listened to rise up like stuff like that makes you go like whoa i. Love are speaking to somebody the other day that said they were doing this thing where they asking a question instead of what's wrong with you. The question is what happened to you at. what's go. what are you going through so we did this song. For the inauguration it was just amazing to the young figure skater caitlin saunders. Just i don't even know she realizes how impactful her just being a young black girl and being free and loving figure skating in around that we're not always represented in how much that just makes me go like. This is why we do what we do you know. And to see kamala harris elected to to hear about joe biden talk about supporting people who didn't support him. I just feel like regardless of how people feel those are the conversations. We need to be having right now. You know like it sounds so simple. But i was like taking my cousin shopping the other day and i bought all of the students. Sweaters sewage just moved from jersey him and his brother. I think in were trying to get their business off the ground but the message was so simple it said god bless anybody who's ever hated on me and i was like i love that like to me. I think we need more of those conversations of lot letting offense necessarily rule our world but actually being constructive and intentional about kindness. And and i think that's what we're hopefully beginning to see. And that's why. I think that dog was really impacted me like that because it just felt like we could finally breathe and it was i will mention unmentionable but it just felt like it just felt like finally after four years of just like pain. Yeah no one felt. Pain is richly as i did. Trust me. thank you for saturday night. I went down and came back again. Also can i just thank you on behalf of everybody for biting the bullet for us in doing that for us because it was actually magical so thank you for that sacrifice. I also like to be clear about this sort of misconception. One of the things that people would say to me in its naively so it's so crazy with trump in office. I mean america literally has an openly race president. And i'm like well. America's had mostly just openly racist president. So it's i think this just brought it into the awareness of other people who had affect about it than yeah also. It just made people who hadn't had to pay attention before maybe didn't care really had to pay attention. Tell me quickly stevie wonder's ex white at a role in your career. How did that. Yeah yeah her. And stephen miller morris is her name. I love her so much. She was like my godmother in the business but there was somebody. I was working with years ago. News like this producer manager. And i won't like talking negatively about people some say blessing but but the one good thing they came out of that situation was i was just singing in a strip mall in malibu just right right where where are you singing. Look in the parking lot where yeah. It was just like this little common area where you just sit in there some chairs and stuff it like just this little strip mall in a shoe store so i was sticking and and so i guess he filmed it and then he found himself. I don't know maybe a week. A couple of weeks later in a pastry shop. This woman camera morris and he played for her and she was like allow. I really like our voice. That's when she revealed that she was steve. He's wife at the time and so she played it for stevie who liked the way saudi and so they orchestrated a call in. I would say like it was honestly i. That's what it felt like. It felt like the weirdest because i was like ding is so crazy. I wonder where steve is talking to me from because he has no idea that i'm in a tiny studio apartment behind a seven eleven next to a dumpster could shoe store anymore now. I wanted to say this. I know people don't really in their careers. We go day by day and then all of a sudden this miracle happens. Where your talent intersects with an opportunity and you've got so many opportunities ahead of you workwise to to have this. Be your first film. That's really really really rare to end the ball out of the park like that. I mean do you feel excited about the future. I'll absolutely yeah. I believe so scared. I mean okay listen okay. I'm excited about the future. But god yes you know. It's so funny. I d like a roundtable with all these just amazing actresses that. I'm like whoa. I grew up watching them so crazy. You know and so. I was just wondering about like when that kind of fear goes away and michelle pfeiffer was never i was like oh damn okay. It's like the whole time. You just feel that way. Yeah i was like ok does feel you. I was saying okay. Maybe i don't want it to like i'm excited about the future and i think it's a blessing. That's my my spiritual compare life. Just how god has expanded the platform with billie holiday. This new family. I have in lee in in my cast like. I talked to these people every day. We are family and we're going to stay that way. And then i'm happy for the extended family in your community that has embraced me in such a way so it makes me excited because i have really a really specific desire to tell black stories. That haven't been told before stories of black celebrations in stories of black struggling trump. The ones though that have been intentionally hidden. Like fred hampton assad material out there. Yeah there's so much. And this idea that i hear that while there's not really meteorologists for black people especially black women. I go will then. We just haven't tapped it correctly because the stories are there. What united means sarah baartman. You know course read. Oh tabango right you know. I keep hearing now about a lot of people. I don't wanna hear about black pain. I don't wanna hear about. And i totally understand and i think we need that world but i think we need both because if there was such a concerted effort to keep these stories from coming to the surface than we absolutely. I think need to make more of an effort to make sure that these stories are actually told you know so that we can actually get a full picture so i'm excited that the platforms have opened up in a way that will hopefully allow me to dive in and start to tell more of these stories. I must say in all honesty. I've rarely been as excited to see what someone does next as to see what you do next. Well i know a lot of people feel that way. This has been a great year. Stay safe stay scared standup place. I'm trapped in fear. Thank you for doing this. Thank god bless you for all this work doing all how thoughtful you've been about all of us. Your instincts got you where you are now. Don't betray those instincts unquote cool. Then we're going to work together to be one day leaving. I'll be my best to you my love to you. I don't see you plan angela. davis. I'm calling the hollywood police. Thank you as a blessing talk.

Andrew day is playing billie holiday in such an exceptional incredible way that she's already got two nominations from the golden goal actress in a drama. In best song you know. So what more is there. come on. let's go out and sell them. I like iraq is gonna drama cly waiting to make that joke for like a week. I hear under that. You just desperate to play billie holiday. Dismiss this what's it. You had to go begley daniels and say this is my part as groveling at his feet on what i want all my life getting acting for all my lack of what just never never so yes. Deadly the exact of that is what happened. I'm just terrifying. I had not acted before other than in high school writing middle school like musical theater. Some plays but i never acted before as a major motion picture leading a cast. It was the idea that to me was like unfathomable unanimity at n ridiculous. Actually to be honest. I was like this is a terrible idea so now but i met with him and his he was thinking the same thing he like now. I really don't to preserve his role in so we didn't want to win a perfect meeting. Yeah it was amazing. Actually i know want you. I do not want to do this part anyway. Why don't we just sit here. Should be here these orders and we can go home so it was interesting. We bonded because we both were like. This is a terrible idea. But i saw him a desire to authentically. Tell billy store. In as a fan of billie holiday that was part of my fear is that i'd be staying on her legacy. that'd be stay on a great. Diana ross's legacy lady sings the blues or audra mcdonald on broadway. So i think we both saw. He was worried that he would also be that in casting me in so so we both had a great fear to overcome together. I think really for both of us. I mean through face into a lot of hard work and and and a great team right at gargantuan effort by our entire sort of ecosystem of people in family. you know we got together. We dove in. We move to get her here. We are win injured. Did the fear goal way Fear number one. Which but what happened was that i was uncomfortable and i was scared being but i had piece about. I had a piece about my purpose. Does that make sense. You know so was muscle. I was terrified. But i started to sort of feel my spirit. I try to stay. Spiritually grounded connected. I started to feel that. Okay just i was just reading. Certain things in has started to feel okay. I think i'm supposed to do this. I think this is something i suppose to say. Yes to i am. I actually read a scripture about being caused to face your fears doing act great faith and that's when i know care have to do this so i was still scared but it was one of those things that was like okay. You're gonna have to actually face it in a recumbent. Can you remember that. I seeing the did whatever that day was like where you're actually being billing. What did he was he gentle with yuli daniels and not starting with some. We actually very well. His the first day in the very first scene was gentle and our industry with natasha. Who's obviously incredible veteran actor writer like she knows this process from the top down so i was blessed that my first thing with her lee was extremely tender with me in two the entire process. You know so. It almost didn't matter with see we started with he had such care unanimity. But we did start. It's latasha leone is too little. The bank of holiday walking through central park in enemy talking about in his ability never jail talking bar tabarre card demand that she's dealing with stating from her. So it was. It was a little restricting through the park with the dogs. You know but it wasn't easy in the sense that it's technically my first day of shielding ever so that air ejector a by can't walk through parks sizably talulah bacon back and then the very next scene was actually her and i just making out in jewelry store so it was great. Second you know. Joe right in with lynching sexiness his first week little stroll in central park. That never happens again. Naked in front of strangers. That was gonna ask you before. I we talk about billion and the connection that that the two of you have of that night before you went to work the next day. What kind of a good night's sleep did you have. I'll regularly so. I really didn't sleep that i i'm not a. I'm not a sleeper. That's skill in the talent. I have not yet developed. Maybe somebody can hire me to be asleep. Let's see if some miracle pops out of that. That would be great so you know. It's interestingly enough people. Ask me what scene i struggled with the most non my okay was very emotionally challenging with a cenex. Struggle with divorce was in the hospital. But they're like billy's sleeping dislike. Relax a little bit like you just sleep Get closure is billion now. I there was no sleeping before going to set. Did it help you all that you have this wonderful musical career that you've been on stage in front of people. It's not the same thing as acting but in a way it is known as a singer as a musician. You have to feel everything you have to make it. Look like it's rolling off a lock that this is it. You can be confident than within the confidence. You can be inspired. He ended up at all. Yeah i think it did excellently. I mean you know one of the things my acting coach thomas which say she's like you know when it comes to acting. She knew how just terrified was she said it is. They are different but it is sort of the same. What she she calls. We ought announcing Chapman tuna says. Okay you know so. I think it did help in the sense that i know what it is like to go onstage. I know what it's like every night. The pressure before you go on stage the need for audience to love you for them to be satisfied for them to feel your love them. And i understand the washing process that once you're in it and you're in the music in your is i look at it as sort of a washing kind of cleansing a healing. Because i think that's it. And then i understand the feeling actor a performance of like. Oh my god that went so great or everybody's loving it select or arable like oh my god i i never wanna perform again. You know what.

"billie holiday" Discussed on Hollywood Unscripted

"Myself. That crazy guys is that crazy. I i'm moved by this to be honest with you. It's it's incredible because this is like an age old thing with creativity of artists using substances to tap into something and a lot of artists. Don't believe that they can tap in without substances. And i think it's really inspiring you in all directions to hear how someone accesses creativity and that creativity isn't limited to one action or one pinpoint like it's still always going to be there because that's part of who you are it takes bravery and we don't think is good. I mean i think anybody that i respect. You'd never it's never good enough. I mean i. I know that it's never. You always questioned whether or not the gig is up after this lynn. Whether you globe. I mean you know now. I always wanted smells john. The me to hear people say that you know you're not alone digging you. Yes absolutely we had mark bombeck actually on the show last year. Dana and i got to interview mark. Who is an executive producer on united states versus billie holiday. He talked about how the moment that stands out to him. In the process of making the film was a deep winter. Night hanging out in your apartment with you and susan lori parks going over the screen writing process and it was an honor for him to be there and i thought it was just such a beautiful story. Love to hear if anything stands out to you in like what the development processes like. This was an interesting one because you know. Mark knew instinctively as a white man that he couldn't write the script. I think the producers at i don't get me this could not be tracked but i think that they offered it to him but the producers kirsch joe roff offered him the job to right and then he knew that he couldn't and so he operated to p and yeah and that and then so Sap really comes from theater so she really needed to structure of him so they were. They were a great duo together and then i come in and just like should've gun through all of their process. Just like okay. I know this land scree also fit figure it out and they and he never seen that kind of process before yale and but he was fantastic. He's so smart that he's a smart man very smart. He's he's he's finished if you look back at the process of this. Do you have a favorite moment. Can i tell you. I love every moment in the movie i swear to god i i really i i love. I am so proud of every moment. Moving because i think that everyone understood each moment which was to honor billie holiday. Every actor knew that we were service to we were. We were honoring the civil rights leader. Who didn't know that she was a civil like we had a job to do. And i think that all were out of the way. I mean really. All eagles are away. When i'm working with actors there's no room for any egos at all. We service we service the script but this one it was something else i could feel the. Would you feel dana even in just the hair makeup trailer. Because i you know. I i didn't get to work with the entire cast but being with them even like for example walking and brushing shoulders which provides a Back at base camp the groundedness that i just felt from him Being in the trailer with andhra like her focus she never felt really out of character me and her but her kindness also shine through like i feel like everybody was extremely grateful to be doing what they were doing in where they were like we were in. Montreal is beautiful. It was like an experience. You know what i mean and then on top of that we get to like you said sir provide a service for the script and this woman's legacy from what i experienced in the energies. I felt there wasn't any ego or anyone who was not who is taking for granted what we were doing. You know i mean. I was just was super grateful to be there and i think everybody else was to liamine. You call us. We're coming and is like we know it's going to be extraordinary. You know the experience the story the thank you the community etc. you know. That's what i experienced my little day. Who you know but my day counted. It did because the is s. Thank you thank you. I appreciate you. I'm curious because you mentioned how looking racism in the eye and all of that wasn't it's such a major element of this film. When did that hit you. I have blinders on. I was in denial about it. And i think the net man died in the street. That man died mystery. And it just took me back to that beating. Rodney king He got away with it. It's all of the Floods open. And i got the myself. Wait minute this movie is bigger than than me is this woman is this whole a noose at the capitol you can. We didn't. When i was doing the movie i didn't. We didn't do it intentionally. To know about the drama that was going on in the country it was something that was in my spirit in my spirit when i did the butler. It was about a hope seaso's last moment when he's walking down the thing to see visible president. That was never there wasn't gonna on but you know it was in the air that was hoping there was a happiness and it wasn't that way when we were writing prepping in the middle of it also. I think that for me. It was an awakening in the room. When i saw that man die in front of us and and and then the news the news been news at the capitol is really just took it to another level of this is real. America is is in a very dark place and is a lot of work to do. And i don't know that it's going to be honest. I happened in our generation. I don't think it's going to happen in our generation. you know. i think it'd be do the work. And that is doing films like billie holiday. Really letting people see the importance of leaders like her and which she stood for. That is the work for america to see that kind of those leaders. 'cause she could do it as a queer black woman in the fifties come on what come on. It's two thousand and twenty one. we have. we have a lot of. We have a lot of work to do so at our grandkids will Will not have this ugly shit.

Best Moments of the Golden Globes 2021

"Think of the globes as an entertainment event that are really big. Audience still watches in part because a lot of people see it as the kickoff for oscar season. Let me just say if you're queasy about these awards being granted any weight at all you will get. I think no argument from us. That is certainly not our position so to the degree that they mean much. There certainly were some good property. Some good movies and television that were honored Start with nomad land. Which one sort of the top top movie prize. Best motion picture drama and also best director for chloe jau. We just covered this Recently on pop culture happy hour so we don't necessarily need to rehash that whole thing but we were big fans. I loved seeing khloe jowl win. Yeah yeah The top prize for a motion picture. Musical or comedy went to borat subsequent film a movie that i like to say not for linda's but i know people who who love it really love it also winning for that was sasha baron cohen who won best actor for a musical or comedy. The best actor in a drama this one delivered one of the best moments of the night for sure that award went to chadwick boseman for my rainey's black bottom boy that was that was quite a moment accepting the award on his behalf was his wife. Taylor simone lead word and look the globes are trashy and meaningless and then something real happens out of nowhere and that was a really effective speech and a really effective moment in an evening. That felt shambolic in chaotic. Otherwise something beautiful something inspiring something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you can tell you to keep going calls you back to what you were meant to be doing. At this moment in history he would think it kind of felt similar to the moment of that whole series of heath. Ledger getting his posthumous awards for his role in dark knight and it felt really earned and it didn't phillips just because he had passed away like this was the role of a lifetime for him and i'm really glad to see him being honored in that way. Yeah it was a very very moving speech. If you didn't see it. I encourage you to seek it out. It's all over the place that award. I think was wonderful to see not too surprising. One that i think was surprising was Andrew day for the united states versus billie holiday aisha. You saw this to the surprising not too much. I think that there was a lot of buzz for her. And i think that it was more likely she was going to win award for this. Then she might be to win for an oscar if she were to get an oscar nomination but she does a really great job of sounding like billie holiday without sounding too much like her like. It's feeling like mimicry. And she is by far the best thing about the movie and we'll actually be covering it in our tomorrow so everyone can check it out fantastic. I'm extremely excited. I haven't seen it yet. In addition to that the first award of the night actually in of of presentation was daniel. Columbia for judas. The black messiah. They had a little glitch with his audio. You know they were figuring it out. We've all had that glenn said the motto of the pandemic was going to remind your muted. It was a little bit of a mom. You're muted kinda moment. But i was not surprised that he that he won that he's wonderful in that movie. I think you didn't pay on. Is this on. Is this on a cool cool. He really is. And it's a solid win. I mean like he started speaking and you heard millions of voices crying out. You're on mute. Dan mute and i think that moment should make the montage in years to come if there is still a golden globe sincere to come because who knows but like that will be the most emblematic acceptance speech of two thousand twenty one easily that will crystallize this moment in time.

They said that. Wanda is basically the kind of like the conductor of chaos magic and we'll we'll jump into chaos magic here in a little bit. But what were you saying. Steven i was gonna say. I took the confirmation that that they are heading there without officially giving her the label of the next being like giving their own cute different name. Which is the chaos which or whatever it was using chaos magic but chaos. Magic is something completely different than the next being chaos magic but it's basically chaos. Magic is basically create a had it written down what agatha said She says to the this. Chaos magic wanda that makes you the scarlet witch And then it says. I don't know it's from somewhere else. But is chaos. Magic is the name of magic so powerful that it was thought to be nonexistent. Even by the source where supreme this magic can be manipulated warp and reconstruct the very fabric of existence and reality for the user and it brings total destruction to the cosmos. Yeah rebecca slow. Isn't that i think that's the thing that's not from this episode though that is from like you know like marvel wicky fandom which i mean trip definitely could be something that she's able to do but in this episode the way that agatha described it was basically you can with your yet.

"Good afternoon. I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post. Welcome to washington post. Live the united states versus. Billie holiday is the incredible story of the fbi's effort efforts to keep jazz great billie holiday from singing strange fruit. Her signature song about lynching director lee daniels presents a gripping drama that shows holiday in all her glory and tragedy. Andrew o.'day gives a stellar performance. So convincing you'd think you were watching lady day herself. That's why i am thrilled and honored to welcome lee daniels and andhra dade to washington post. Live thank you both very much for being here to see you again. I know it's been a very long time. Greats isn't a you again both of you. Congratulations on this film. The moment i saw it. I immediately sent a letter to y'all saying okay here. All your options. I need to talk to you about this film. Le- let me start. Start with you. Thanks so as we saw in the in the opening clip. The film tackles pretty much everything. Racism sexism addiction art abuse. And i'm wondering. How did you come to this project. And what influenced your approach to billie. Holiday's life susan lori parks the pulitzer winning a prize winning playwright Sent me this beautiful script that really depicts the government breaking her down coming for her coming for billie holiday and and really trying to cripple her. As an artist or singing strange fruit which was about lynching black people and that wasn't the understanding of billie holiday that i had. I thought that she was a troubled jazz singer. Got in trouble with the law. And you know the drugs and was fashionable. I did know that she was a political activist. And so and i you know i pride myself in being smart about our history and i thought to myself that i i don't do this. I don't know i had. I had to do it. And i thought also like how many other stories about our people have have. They have been hidden so yeah that was more threes in selena. And so right and i am going to latch onto what you just said before. Which was you thought of billie holiday as a jazz singer But you didn't really know that she was an activist. What what more did she do. Other than being defiant about trying to seeing strange fruit despite government opposition and government targeting. What other things that she do that made you realize that she's she's more than just lady day. What other than she did. Besides stand up to the government. I guess a lot to say i couldn't. I don't know that i could today. I don't think that i could. They told me lead. You can never make a movie again or coming for your mother. I'm going to come for your kids and you will. I'm like take it. But the thing about her strength and her being born in the into the world that she was being born in tipton board she didn't she didn't get to fly in you know what because she. She had nothing to lose by living in her constantly. And let me bring you in here. I saw your interview go ahead. Go ahead now. I just wanted to back off that too. I mean. I think what shows so brilliantly in the movies that apart what she did in standing up to the government was being human. She's black queer woman in the nineteen thirties. Forties and fifties and that living in an owning their in itself is is is defiance than accident that she's integrating audiences music one of the first artists a black woman to integrate carnegie hall. She wasn't the first but she is one of the first shoes audiences in athlete. People understand. This is sort of pre.

"That's the CEO McLorin Salvant from her new album, for one To Love. It's a song she wrote called Look at me. So now that you're on stage and becoming famous within the jazz world, more people are looking at you. I mean, literally. Do you like being the focus of attention when you're on stage? It's it's Weird. I'll say in a way, I love it. I mean, I do love being on stage and I have always loved Playing a character and being watched doing that. I remember In school in elementary school. I used to recite poems, We'd have to recite poems and I would always just like, roll on the floor like, just make it such a huge, melodramatic portrayal of whatever it was, you know. But in another sense, I don't like being the focus of attention. It It makes me very uncomfortable. It's part of the reason I never look at videos of myself or very rarely listen to my music. ER are even read things that I might have said. It's just there's something repulsive about it to me. Maybe that's a strong word. That's a very strong word. Yeah, I don't know. I just don't like to be in my own. I'm already myself so I don't like to be in my own. Like, watch myself. Well, we need to talk about your incredible voice. When I listen to you, I hear Elements of Sarah Vaughan, Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter, Billie Holiday When you started listening to those singers Did you when you were young? Try to copy them to really learn how they did what they did the way some writers copy paragraphs of favorite writers to better understand the structure and flow of the air of the words in their favorite writers sentences. I would say for certain singers I definitely went through. That definitely went through that with Sarah von as I think I started really falling in love with with her voice when I was about 14. My mother loves Sarah Vaughan, and she always played her music from as you know, as long as I can remember. But When I was about 14, I started really checking her out for myself by myself. I'm thinking, Gosh, that voice is incredible. I was I was really mostly interested in classical singing. But she had She had something in there that drew me in. She was An absolute virtuoso when she could have so many colors and textures with her voice. So it became when I don't want to move to France and started singing jazz and studying it really? She was She was maybe the first person that I would Copy, and it became less about sounding unique. I didn't even care about that. I just wanted to sound as much like her as I possibly could. So it's been a lot of time listening to her and seeing how I could make my voice sound like that. And then eventually it moved on to other singers. Billie Holiday was a big one where I would pay attention to the way she would pronounce words the way she even just her accent. All of that became really interesting to me and vibrato. And and all of that, and eventually, eh? The more I listened and became obsessed with singers. I feel like the more I realized that I had my own little thing that I could that I could do. And And so this is why I just became obsessed with looking for new singers, unknown singers, people that maybe have been for gotten And really checking them out and analyzing what they dio an obsessive listening. I think that's that's the core of my work on music has been Just listening to things listening to singers. So after listening so obsessively to so many singers, did you ever go through an identity crisis is a singer herself and wonder, But who am I? I can sound like these people. I love those people. But what is uniquely me? Oh, still today, every day it's it's a total identity crisis for me of like, is this even? Is there even a point in doing this? Is this even Relevant, You know, what am I doing? Who who do I sound like? I remember as a child. I still today Do not have my own handwriting. I just would copy everyone else's handwriting. And now I have sort of a version of my sister's handwriting. And I feel like sometimes I feel that way for my voice like sometimes I'm Doing a patchwork like a like a Like a bad quilt of all the people that I love, But then, But then I'll I'm very I doubt myself a lot and I'm very, very Just overly critical, so I know that it's probably not that Singers, the seal McLorin Salvant speaking with Terry Gross in 2015 more after a break, this is fresh air. This is fresh air. Let's get back to Terry's 2015 interview with singer Cecile McLorin Salvant. She is a 2020 MacArthur fellow. You have such an amazing instrument. You have such an amazing voice and You use it with such emotional and tonal and no T range, So I also think that, like writing your own songs is probably helping you find Like your own musical identity. Sure writing my own songs and and also the time and Kerry taken in choosing the repertoire. It takes me a lot of time in it, and it's It's almost frustrating for the guys sometimes because they're waiting. For a new song and I, It's just so important for me to get the perfect exact right song. One of the things I really like about your repertoire is that you go Back to early jazz and you find music from the early 19th century and early 20th century. I mean and from the 19 twenties and thirties and How did you decide to go back that far? Because a lot of singers don't I think I'm fascinated with history. And just in general on I'm always interested in how did how did this come to be? What? Why is this the way it is, and Even even singing classical voice. I quickly became more and more interested with.

Monique Morris: Why Are Black Girls More Likely To Be Punished In School?

"John Henson Junior and welcome to another edition of in Black America on this week's program single rhythm dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and Brown girls with author. Dr Monique. W W Moore's in black America. Our research is showing and the research of others and and and other folks who have been engaged in this work both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Delta fixation is a term that has been deeply explored by the George Town Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that? They're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent and to know more about adult subjects such as sex than their white counterparts. And all of this really Begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen which is also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in school in the follow up to accrue claim book push out Social Justice Scholar and author. Dr Monique W Moore's has pushed the envelope. Further and in writing or latest book singer Rhythm Dance of Blues. He traveled from Oakland to Ohio and from New York to Iowa City and beyond she described Kanner and love what it looks like to meet the complex needs of girls on the margin in doing so she also a collection of ideas from educators who are tuned to the patterns of Pain Rain and struggle. And who show how. Those working in schools can harness their wisdom to partner with students and help the girls they teach find value and joy in learning far too often these young ladies on given the benefit of the doubt many I misunderstood thereby putting him on the path to incarceration singer singer rhythm dance the blues a guide to move away from punishment trauma and discrimination towards safety justice and genuine community in our schools. US recently in Black America spoke with. Dr Moore's this is actually my fifth book. I did Street novel beautiful for words and then I also worked with Kemba Smith. It's on her. Biographer does right I do. I did read that highest Campbell. Not doing well from all I can see she is. She's threatening. It's it's wonderful to see we're particularly drew you to education. I started my life in education. I was teaching very young. And you know I have. I have sort of veered away from I'm teaching and moved into research and policy for a while Though never fully releasing education as an important focal point in my work and I started to talk more intensely about the the discipline disparities After seeing data that when showing that African American girls were experiencing exclusionary disciplined suspensions expulsions etc at higher rates than their white counterparts. And so oh I understand and have always understood education to be a critical protective factor against contact with the juvenile court or criminal legal system. It's one of the reasons I call it. Freedom Work and when I see these interruptions taking place and this criminalization occurring of our girls it was really important for me to be a part of a community to elevate the issue but also to examine some of the solutions to this crisis thus far what are some of the analysis. We've come up with on this journey. Well unfortunately currently what we've been finding is that black girls continue to be. The only group of girls who are over represented across the spectrum of discipline in schools and at every educational level will in their educational journey and so You know that has Continue to you know sort of lead our inquiry around how we interrupt these cycles else How we elevated in consciousness how we elevated in consciousness of those who are working in schools who have children in schools who are concerned about what goes on in schools but also you know in the course of having these conversations about the problem I have discovered a number of programs and strategies that have done tremendous work with are girls that have you know really discovered pathways in the schools outside of the schools and in partnership with schools to transform the conditions that are really at the root cause of much of the behavior that girls ended up in trouble for in schools? And so it's a tale of concern in terms of wanting to address a critical issue. That really should be at the forefront of folks minds but also I would say you know an inspiring tale of how when we understand. There's a problem and set our intentions to shift the outcomes. We actually actually do it. How did you come up with the title? So singer them dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and brown girls. I think the framework of it being You sort of rooted in the musical traditions and artistic traditions at the black community. You know sort of came. Organically to me I ride in the introduction about a grainy black and white video that I was watching a Billie holiday singing strange fruit and as I was discovering what was happening on the road and sort of interacting with with many black women and girls specifically in communities and and you know dozens of communities It occurred to me that obviously what we're experiencing is a form of the blues but that we shouldn't only see the blues as a limited. We shouldn't only limit the blues to entertainment or see it as a vessel for for the expression of pain. I felt that it was important in in observing some of the traditions rooted in the Blues and some of the practices in our own communities throughout up the country to recognize that the blues is a platform for truth telling that would then enable us to really seek and obtain the healing thing that is necessary for us to move forward in this work. You write about in the book that African Americans and and the teenage girl dizziness girls are struggling to realize it. True you a deputy as scholars making net point. What do you see? Some of the detriments is going on in between those four walls. Well our the research is showing and the research of other folks who've been engaged in this work you know both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Adult education is a term that has been deeply explored Lord by the Georgetown Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that they're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent to know more about adult built subjects such as sex than their white counterparts? And all of this really begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen. which is it's also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in schools? And so it's really important to understand that when we render. Our girls is more adult like than they actually are. Then we believe that. They're in greater control of their behaviors than they actually are developmentally and it just feeds into a cycle where are girls are perceived as defiant and Saffi and loud problematic or bad real words that we assigned to our young people in schools. Are Our girls especially disproportionately renders them vulnerable to being taken out of school. which then of course places them at risk of participating in underground economies he's and being in contact with the juvenile quarter criminal legal system so these are the cycles were trying to disrupt are the readings of black girl behaviors? The increasing ways in which Latina girls and indigenous girls are also being criminalised in schools and also the elements that we can put in place to structure true accountability ability and to really respond to much of what underlies the negative behavior which in most cases with our girls is a traumatic event. Or you know as a sort of set of conditions that present harm in their lives.

It was released in nineteen fifty six to coincide with her autobiography of the same name by this point in her career when she was just in her early forties. Holiday's voice was sounding fragile and warn the toll of a life marked by hardship and addiction. Although the more energetic sound of her earlier records is muted here, holiday still delivers wise and moving performances in this collection of emotional, jazz tunes, many of the songs here became synonymous with her unique sound and persona. Here's colleen. Billie holiday remains one of the greatest jazz, voices of all time and is still easily recognizable to music fans from all generations. She's got them. The musicians and clubs of New York City were integral to the development of jazz in the nineteen forties. Bebop was born in the Big Apple with artists like Charlie Parker bologna, smoke and Dizzy, Gillespie. The nineteen fifties saw the development of hard bop with Sonny Rollins and our Blakey the cool jazz of miles Davis and later, the free jazz of Ornette Coleman, and later John Coltrane explored in downtown, Manhattan venues, like the five spot. But vocal innovator and world-famous Billie holiday with unable to perform these notable. Jaaz clubs in the nineteen fifties as her cabaret card had been revoked due to narcotics charges. So instead, she brought jazz to the mainstream by performing it a major concert venue Carnegie Hall in nineteen fifty six. Nothing. On nothing. She wants said of her style. If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all in nineteen fifty eight Frank Sinatra told ebony magazine with few exceptions, every major pop singer in the US during her generation has been touched in some way by her genius. It is Billie holiday who was and still remains the greatest single musical influence on me.
