"Food and community service programs. So we're trying to figure out new marketing methods to certainly raise money, but to also introduce people to our message. That was former member David Hilliard, years later in a 2005 interview about a new revolutionary hot sauce line at the time, called burn baby burn. For nonprofit organization, the UAP Newton foundation. The Black Panther Party's mission brought in thousands of members and operated out of offices across the United States. Founded by Huey P Newton and Bobby seale in California's Bay Area in 1966 to fight against police brutality, and it grew over the years to push for housing, food equity, education, self protection and much more. The group faced a lot of backlash on being the Black Panther Party for self defense. They organized themselves as a militant group, structured on discipline and respect. They weren't afraid to challenge police or have firearms for protection, which sometimes made it seem as if they promoted violent tactics. People were trying to say, we started to shoot, that's not true. It was the FBI, when police departments to attack our literal offices. That was cofounder Bobby still often finding himself explaining who the party was and what they dealt with. Many historical figures emerged out of the black Panthers, Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis, and Huey P Newton. But history often overlooks those who do not serve and dynamic roles, or who perform task away from the public view. These people do the thankless and less glamorous jobs, important work that keeps organizations running. Barbara easily Cox was one of those people. From 1967 to 1971, Barbara was a rank and file member of the Black Panther Party, who sold newspapers handed out free breakfast to school children and ran the Oakland party office at one point. She also found herself living abroad in exile to be with her husband and to take on bigger roles with the expansion of the Black Panther Party in Africa, with offices growing out of Algiers, Algeria. Barbara took the message of the black Panthers all over the world from Algiers to Germany and even North Korea. The black Panthers ideologies were beyond America, and they were influencing people amongst different diasporas..

"The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals. The lord god had made one day he asked woman. Did god really say you must not eat of the fruit from any of the trees in the garden. The lord god asks the woman. What have you done. The serpent deceived me. She replied that's why eight. Then the lord god said to the serpent. Because you have done this you are cursed more than all animals domestic and wild. You'll crawl on your belly groveling in the dust as long as you live. And i will 'cause hostility between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring he will strike your head and you will strike his. He'll this is from the bible in the book of genesis. chapter three. This ancient text is fascinating. It highlights the long standing relationship between mankind and a very particular wild beast one that has become a defining feature of the human experience.

And it's ripe with une bendable biological reality humans flip out when they see a snake well at least most of them. Well you know. I didn't really get into woods. Heavy till hours.

What Influences How We See Ourselves & Others?

"What do you think we can do. Donna as a community to begin or continue to change the conversation around like light skin and pretty hair so to speak being the only things that are deemed attractive. What you said is so true. We definitely started so isa raise. Insecure shows us different spectrum of beauty. The black panther of course showed a completely different spectrum of beauty. But some of that is what we are going to do for ourselves as individuals as well as how we're gonna relate to one another so number one you know like the judgment of someone's character based on their hair got the stop because was often is happening is someone is saying someone with light skin. And there's no the silkier hair and they're saying their stuff up from like well. You don't know that you haven't had a conversation with them already. Assuming a character trait based on what you see just like. There's an assumption that if you are dark skin with kinky hair that somehow you are lazy and not willing to take pride in your appearance so that judgment of character based on the hair and our skin tone. That's part of what needs to sort of stop. We need to take stock of why we are feeling and thinking this way and figure out whether or not this thought even originated with us. Because what i'm finding is that for most people is not what they think i. It's what someone else thought that. They have adapted as their own

"Ju- christina. Erica agreed that the mural had to be bold and simple. They wanted to grab people's attention from blocks away and draw them closer. She said it should be dedicated to the rank and file women because we talked about. Everybody knows angela. Kathleen cleaver huggins. Elaine brown except to shop for those names are very known invisible. But seventy percent of the panthers were women they did everything that the men dead and more because they were more of them the four portraits in the mural are real women in the black panther party. They're based on photographs. Taken by stephen shames during the nineteen seventies. rachel wolf goldsmith. The artist who painted the mural scaled the photos up and made the women thirty feet tall but even though they take up. The whole side of joe christina's house and even though you can see them from blocks away in a strange way the women were still invisible because no one knew their names afternoon weeks. Before the big unveiling rachel was at working on the mural winter scissor lift broke and joe came out of the house and was helping her with it when a car slowed down next to the sidewalk. Jill says the driver his eyes glued to the mural rolled down his car window and called out to rachel who that is on the wall and she said actually no. We don't know anybody's names and he said i'm pretty sure that's my tea and we were just like and i say yes. That's a famous photograph isn't that is that from a famous photograph. I said yeah. I got out my phone. I said that's her and he said yo that's my auntie that's dolores henderson right there and rachel and i would just like holy cow because this is just it was a silhouette at that. Point wasn't anywhere near done. Erica huggins recognize the women. In the doctor's coat. her name is lauren. Williams and the little girl is your daughter mary. The black panther holding the grocery bag is angie johnson. The new woman standing watch with the rifle has yet to be identified but behind the images of the four women. The mural is filled with hundreds of other women's names which spill across the citing of the house in big block letters so even though we don't know the fourth woman's name her name is probably on the bureau somewhere because there's three hundred names on the mural so far you can walk up to it and you can speak these women's names into existence and know that they did something that changed the course of history for all of us not just for black people for all of us we benefit from what they did. All of us do on the day. The mural was unveiled local restaurants and community members donated two hundred seventy five bags of groceries to needy families and hausler oakland irs joe christina hopes that the mural will continue to be a rallying point for the community she plans to host more events like the unveiling but in the meantime she also recognizes the power. The murals has on as a work of art and as a story morning a couple of months after the mural was unveiled joe christina stepped out of her house in crossed the streets and she recorded this audio for us. You can see all its glory we all the way up and down look the last into the right. Take it all in that really being able to stand back and look into these. Women's is that was something that was really important was to make sure that the women are looking at the viewer that you can look at them see them acknowledged that it was important for them to be smiling and filled with joy. Because that's what was reflected back to me from the panther women serving the people body and soul serving people with love that brought them. They were doing the right thing. When you're doing the right.

"And the the part where the panthers came in is. My house is on the corner of center and ninth. Nine streets is now commemorative. -ly named dr hugh p newton way For a three block stretch. And i'm right in the middle of it and it's named that because my house sits across the street where he was felled. In one thousand nine hundred nine repea- newton was of course one of the founders of the black panther party. He's the picture you always see that. Archetype of the handsome guy in the black leather jacket and the beret. Ju- christina's house is on the intersection where he was assassinated in nineteen thousand nine. That's i think we're kind of just kind of clicked. I was like okay the black panthers. It was like all of this jumble. Wait a minute. What about the women in the black panther party that i personally know that i've never seen talked about or celebrate it or honors or monuments and then that it just clicked. It's going to be educated to the women black panther party. Oh my god that's perfect but this wasn't just a celebration of the past because some of these women were still around. But i decided to have it dedicated to the women of the black panther party. The first person i contacted was erica. Huggins erica. Go ahead darling gonna get my coffee okay. All right do christina. Put us in. Touch with cheryl dawson and erica huggins. And they're both former members of the black panther party. Erico was a leader of the party. I joined the black panther party in nineteen sixty seven and was very young median age of party members nineteen years old. I'm cheryl dawson and bike. Erica i began my work with the party when i was quite young on a little older than erica owens. In my early twenties both erica and cheryl had infant daughters who they would swaddled in blankets and bring them to. The party's headquarters. Erica and cheryl took political classes. They organized food drives. They registered people to vote and they basically ran the party with their babies strapped to their backs. Men in the black panther front. We've considered to be a big deal. Then but when we mention it to people understanding what the narratives were and the iconography. Who did you see handsome. Wonderful looking black men with black leather jackets and arrays rather than people in human beings alike. Good to see you here tonight and sometimes you got to see the women but there. We were running everything behind the scenes. There's one proposal that was brought up last night as a matter of fact that this is erica. Huggins in one thousand nine hundred ninety two she sitting alongside black panther party leaders. Bobby seale and elaine brown at a press conference have a youth involvement program that would give drought counseling medical pair psychiatric counselling etiquette when people say they need something. The black panther party would created. That's how the breakfast for children program started. We have free medical clinics black panther party. Contrary to mainstream media was for defending one's community. I believed then. That and i believe now that our survival depends on our own community work. I mean we may have allies ship. Folks might come and go at the table but at the center of that we need to be there because we know what it what it's like. I bought then because i didn't want racism and racist violence to be a torturer of my community. I wanted it over. I knew my history. I wanted it over own ball. All after the black panther party dissolved in the early eighties. Shirl dawson started working on programs to help empower incarcerated women. She eventually got her. Masters degree in women's spirituality and women s theology and she became reverend ericka huggins spent almost a decade as the director of the oakland community school and she became the first woman and the first black person to serve on the alameda county board of education. She's been a professor a poet and a human rights activist and then one day last year joe christina called. She said erica. I wanna do in. Omar's two women of the black panther party. I want it so that girls and women and elders and people just driving by a walking by. We'll feel a little bit taller. That little girls look at these women who are pictured here.

The 2021 Oscars' Best Original Song Nominees

"Get to this year's oscar nominated songs in a minute but before we weigh in on those songs and their chances. Stephen can you talk a little bit about the common themes we've seen from some of the oscar winners and nominees of the last few years. Well each year this category has been a different kind of mixed bag. Depending on what sort of movies are coming out. In a given year you often have a song or more from disney musical. You often have a song from a big blockbusters like all stars from black panther from a couple years ago. Big songs from big movies often wind up making their way into these nominations. And then they'll be mixed in with. Sometimes it's a song you've never heard of by an artist you've never heard of from a movie you've never heard of so. It really is a very very mixed bag from year to year with some recurring themes diane. Warren is very often nominated as a songwriter very often. Especially in recent years. You have a lot of songs that i call for lack of a better term. Glory corn so named for the song. Glory by common and john legend from movie. Selma a few years ago songs that play over the closing credits of movies about social justice all of which have titles that kind of together to form this. I will rise and fight and raise my voice to stand for you and so this year is a little bit of an unusual year for a bunch of obvious reasons. Many of them related to the pandemic. You didn't have a big disney musical so you didn't have a let it go into the unknown big disney banger. And you didn't have a lot of blockbusters you didn't have for example. No time to die. The james bond movie which had a theme song by billie eilish which came out which was pretty well received. And i think would have been a shoe in at least to be nominated and probably win. Had the movie actually come out and thus been eligible so that has kind of opened this year's field to what has turned out to be a whole lot of glory.

Will Smith Movie Pulls Out of Georgia Over New Voting Law

"Of the South. But is this Hollywood verses? The South? Will Smith's upcoming movie Emancipation is canceled. Filming in Georgia in protester law changes being made by Republican politicians there. The newsroom's Jonathan Savage. Tell me more It all stems from new rules that affect how elections air running Georgia Nick No. One of the controversial provision is the 81, who wants to vote in elections by post will need to provide identification, such as a social Security card or a driver's license, then, until no identity checks have been carried out by providing two matching signatures. Republicans who run George of the state. See it will reduce the chance of fraud. These changes. But Democrats who won the state in the presidential election for the first time in more than 25 years, say the new laws will restrict voting on disproportionately affect black voters. Now, the will Smith film in question is called Emancipation. It's based on the true story of a slave who flees a plantation. And joins the northern Army in the American Civil War. Of course, the synergy between the subject of the movie on the dispute over the new laws can't be mistaken. In a statement, will Smith on the director Antoine Fuqua said. We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict water access. And Jonathan. How was it that Georgia, particularly as a state became so important in the film, and it's a very simple answer. Nick Tax breaks up to 30% filmmakers saved money Georgia gets valuable jobs and investment and it works well for all parties. So movies like Ju Manji Contagion. Black Panther TV shows like The walking dead and stranger things all filmed in Georgia. All in all, in 2017 alone, the industry has an economic impact in Georgia, off $9.5 billion on the cost of the state, estimated to be somewhere north of $100 million would open up the absolute figure on that, but clearly there's a lot of money in it.

"Roslyn. What does black liberation look like to you to me. Black liberation looks like freedom freedom to express gas as an artist. The way i'd like to express on any given day at any given moment freedom to care for each other care about each other freedom of movement to go where we please when we please how we please and to be able to share knowledge about our culture with each other uninhibited. And how do you see your work as working towards black liberation. My work with iconic black panther is threefold and learning. We're learning as we go right It kind of develops in. Then we look back at it and say wow. This is developing in this direction. But i will say that I kind of black panther. There it's a series. A multi city art exhibitions. We've done three already. The i was in oakland in two thousand sixteen. The second one In los angeles in the third in chicago the fourth was to be this year in new york. I say multi city exhibitions because each exit is not a traveling exhibition. Each exhibition is different and reflects the city and the city's history with artists with cultural movements with social equity movements. Each city has its own personality and those personalities are able to express in the production of these artists visions.

"Why don't you give the all of them. Are most of them so low movies before you get to the big justice league movie or even. Just you know or a remnant superman. I have so many people like wonder woman had a phone. I mean she had her film after the first phone but okay well i'll allow it. She ran definitely had his first home. Batmans i comb is a team of that in itself isn't a problem but when you get you. Now let's add aliments flash in march march in manhattan flying work and cyborg got about him. let's add four more characters who are central to the plot and try to work them into this. Because that's thing you can always explain. Why someone's not there. You always explain. Let like i said. I kind of feel that. Like you know the lanterns. 'cause we established them in the first half maybe they should have been here for the second scene. But you know there's a twice. Maybe there's a reason what the thing like. A lot of classic versions of justice league like seven of them. You know the the big sevens usually like all them in like martian manhunter green lantern. Or you know a isn't that but again but again in the comics when you do that. Though superman has his own books batman has his own books wondering as row book flat has and has his own book. Yeah and say you can have characters like clint barton. Brooklyn barton doesn't do much sitting there saying. Why did they call wake you. But even he you get actually some backstory on before then as oh. He is shield agent. We attach your guide to to be her movie. You know everybody got built. And everybody had an establishment to new whether were there but if they just introduced to top-drawer shield ages. No-one would have complained if that was the first time. We met melinda million so colson as shields members. Don't want to be like. Oh we don't even know who these people are. Obviously we already met but they had just introduced. Melinda may in avengers but they make her in avenger knows will be upset about melinda because oh she is just a. Da karate girl. No me to make sense for shield agents. Because we've got nick fury at the end of the first ironman movie exactly so you know it is. It is what it is. But it's is that we're talking about this tomorrow.

'Coming 2 America' Goes Heavy On Nostalgia

"Too heavily on nostalgia. Unless you're a huge fan of Eddie Murphy's classic 1988 film coming to America, and lots of people are there's not going to be a lot for you, and it's less than inspired sequel Coming to America. We celebrated her 30 years absolute and prosperity. 30 Years of service. Well, great nation on 30 Years off Delicious fast food. The new film begins with Murphy's Prince Akeem Joe Fair, opening a fast food restaurant called McDowell's in the African Country of Amanda Devote ease of the first movie. No. This chain is owned by Akin's American father in law, played by John Amos, who denies his business is in any way a rip off of another well known burger joint. They've got egg mcmuffins way that a mixed up in this way are also celebrating my new beyond big mix burger, So there's no meat. There's no meat. Maybe we're getting much better with Pepsi Call Max here are subtle as a sledgehammer. This scene mostly gives us an excuse to see Amos and Louie Anderson, who also appeared in the first film, The Story of the original movie was a black centered fairytale. Murphy's a keen came to America, Queens, New York, of course, tow avoid an arranged marriage and find true love in the new movie. After the death of his father, King Akeem discovered he fathered a son unknowingly in America. Teams return to Queens brings one of the Sequels funniest moments when he revisits a local barber shop where movie magic allows Murphy and costar Arsenio Hall to play multiple parts. Just like in the first film can't be both famine and blood. Damn, Nelson Mandela and Winnie just discovered that I may have a bastard son here in this land conceived during my last visit. How much data supports you getting from the King pays no child support. No time for 30 years and you came back. You're the damn it. Comic Jermaine Fowler plays the sun. Lovell Johnson, who brings King a came home to meet his mother marry played by Saturday night Live alum Leslie Jones. My African I told you he was gonna come back. So you know this man. I definitely know this man. I know this man all the way live much as I love Leslie Jones, she and levels. Other American relatives, including Tracy Morgan, as his uncle Come off is uncomfortable stereotypes as King Akeem introduces his son to the moonda and pressures him into an arranged marriage. Comedy gets clunkier and more predictable, like a Mel Brooks style parody of the Black Panther of The Lion King and the first coming to America. Ultimately, this coming to America is mostly an excuse to bask in the glow of characters who's shown so much brighter and distinctively. 33 years ago. I'm Eric Deggans.

I really take a direction now from from them when i started that. Have a goal of what i want. But don't don't let the flights be there.

"It's important to not be judgmental ever right than than then you sort of. It's just not appropriate. You're you're digging in presenting like you see you. Did you do have an opinion. But like homer was bad. He was just as racist. No that wouldn't work. He for he was a man of his time and he may have thought he was sympathetic. Who knows what he did. However people that bought its were were rich northerners that were in manufacturing and we're definitely dependent on seven labor force. Yeah i think. I think that that's the problem that we have in this country today with looking at at the past them whether it's artists the founding fathers In that's a lot in and we as african americans have an issue with this but but they were people in their time doing what they had to do in order to keep the economy going and keeping in. They thought they would. That was right now. We certainly detested. And i certainly don't want to be seen as an apologist for for that type of thinking because you know if i'm there i'm rebelling running away and from slavery and all that kind of stuff too you know because certainly as we look back we know it was wrong. Then we know what's in you know what's wrong today So what were you trying to accomplish with with the panther book Trying to get what was your. What was your theme in. Thesis writing the book We'll have started. Actually the a poster opinion have sent you a photograph original photograph. They founded in stanford library collection that they took the became the poster and i started with that. What did they look like. Why did they choose that that that the wider leather jacket. What is what is their foundational principles. The ten point platform and the more. I worked demoralized. While i need to do also this another surprise although it wasn't because i actually did go to school in oakland berkeley wave back is the The collaboration between the black panthers and events in the black community with students and antiwar activists in berkeley really very tight. And i i think come that my chapter. There's a chapter on for major figures. He knew that. I look at the poster and his background and his influence eldridge cleaver chapter is about him working with the peace and freedom party. How i call it his visual acumen. How how influential. His use of pictures were and then a chapter enemy douglas. Who is the black panther artist. And then last night a chapter on picturing the female revolutionary that that mostly look at look at angela davis and kathleen cleaver and that's where my research was formidably. The the the angela davis chapter was last. It was slightly out of the chronology. Why that happened. But in studying imrie douglas people would read and he would be referred to a emory douglas of the black arts. Move in this phrase kept coming up of over. Hadn't really thought a lot about it. So i realized i better find out what the black arts movement is so the the first four chapters deal with the black arts. How it how. It happened Back to new york. It's all about art.

"Will put this up for people. Put it on the screen so people can share it. I think i'll go back to where i left off with the students because i was I've taught classes that were somewhat. African american studies oriented as an art historian. I did a seminar called the visual aesthetics of hip hop for instance and Kind of a trying out some ideas. But here i was in a new job. It was at western illinois university fulltime african american studies and the variety courses on the books a so You know i did. I do actually have a background in theatre. Historians well Film so as far as african american culture are film literature theatre pretty pretty ready to go but still the introduction classes like freshman classes. There was one called famous people of african descent already there. So i said all right. I'll take on this one. You know you can kind of make of it as you will. And i could. It was good kind of like a people magazine. If you will introduction to to to the topic but students responded really well to it. And i started bringing in weekly topics relative to my own interests in so i was sharing with them things about black power not just civil rights or sports or writers. We did those. But i brought in the things. They didn't tend to know even though this is in western illinois so most of my students most of the students came from chicago is. There's a train coach from chicago to mccomb illinois and they would commute not commute. Actually stay but so i. I have a lot of african. American students with with Urban background chicago and it just really. I was at love teaching Particularly about the black panthers because they really liked. It really likes them. They really respond. But what. I learned being story. And i present picture shows how much i could teach really without even talking. Latch put up a picture of showed the panthers at sacramento Essentially a couple What almost in. The picture is half of what i had to present and my background is in art history. I had written earlier book. Show you that one uncle. Tom's cabin official culture. Where i looked at every kind of representation of uncle. Toms people from the mid nineteenth century novel and it took me in all kinds of new directions and particularly interesting was the popular culture. I brought that saying if you will method the same method of research to studying the black panthers. Everyone seen that poster of p newton. Fan back chair. He's got spear a rifle jacket cup beret. If so just this is an example. I mean that's something everyone knows but you just take that picture without even knowing a whole lot and read the picture. What's in the picture. Why is it there. And it's it's sort of tells its own story but then my job as researcher the is to learn more about the picture what it meant and who they're ready to go and who carried it in what tim instruction where it was produced and then it becomes sort of a sort of like being detained. Excuse me for the allergy. But kind of scholarly detective seeking out the meaning of things and so. That's that's where it started looking for that picture in demonstrations. I learned the panthers were with navy. They weren't the first but they certainly were the most assertive in using images photographs in their demonstrations..

I was one of those kids where they got pulled out of class and was told the draw on the walls and none of the walls but on the whatever those are called you know we had the the frames and people would put different pictures up in the hallways in class. And i was always getting called out to do that after a while. I started hating hating it. Got it somebody to decorate exactly exactly and then and then my mother would always have me do my brothers projects and stuff like i. Listen i mean.

"So it's it's it's sort of a collaborative process of my own research. And the collaboration of having this wonderful continuous audience of young people up to try the material out. So it's what you've always been interested in art or you are you artists. Can you paint. Since little and i did have a good career exhibiting still actually have work in a gallery in los angeles. And i i am now a professor emeritus at for the last year. And i've gone back to doing the joe large and i find that i sent you a couple of pictures just you know. I know probably won't talk about them but it's it's been really interesting how the research work Particularly relative to the black power movement is now informing the artwork so kind of gone back to visual art becoming artist again new medium and yet i take with me all of those years of research and things i thought about is. I was working through Sending a book on on the black arts of very good. We can certainly talk about your paintings. does your. That's your work right. I mean i noticed that A few of them. And i'm going to put them up on my facebook page so people can get idea what we're talking about here The does your work correct. I know that in images you can't tell it through native. They're really not paintings. They're supposed to read like like a picture like composition but there some fabric so they're kind kinda like quilts. That's got to be very time. Consuming to put those swatted. This last march. Okay when we went into lockdown. So i wanted something that was time intensive because i had lots of nine. I really wasn't ready. I don't know if i ever want to write another book. It takes forever and it evolved from from the conditions and the themes of the word jewish things. That have happened this past year which i like the medium which you think of something. Kind of charming decorative and put it on your band but unlike the idea that you have that comforting medium and then say something a little more profound a little more significant so actually. I've been looking through the screen over my right shoulder is a is a a work called a memorial for briana taylor and you could probably see but you do a slide and so it's a tribute to her but she the figures are supposed to be reassuring in way the Mostly off female under supposed to have this feeling of reassurance to them so it's kind of a it's kind of it's not a portrait per se. It's a it's a comforting figure. That's of big. It doesn't exactly come together significantly but it is. It's a figure in a gesture of hands up. Don't shoot a reference to the pan. African flag connection is young women dressed in cutoffs of a flight of gird of roads overhead. She had a tattoo shoulder that had this flight of birds and a statement. Sometimes you gotta fall before you can fly. And it's really touched by her. Her story her. Her life is far and i have a daughter so i think she especially resonated with me so i wanted to kind of tribute. That was helpful. And maybe comforting as it is now is that that's something you just finished and is that going to. You're going to try to get that into two to museums or art galleries or or not i. I was hesitant to start showing work. Until i had a real solid body of work in a sense of where i was going and so i still i. I have shown that peace and another one. That some immoral this when you'll see on a on a slide of a similar young woman with her hand in a black power gesture who's a flag in it.

But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news

Finding the Judas in Judas and the Black Messiah

"The 19 sixties, Fred Hampton was chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party. He was a rising leader, organizing disparate multi racial groups in Chicago. Until police shot and killed him and another Black Panther member in an early morning raid. There's a new movie about Fred Hampton out this week, it is called Judas and the Black Messiah. It's not a question of ball. It's a non violence is a question of resistance to fascism or non existence within fascism Film got rave reviews after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last week. It's the second feature from director Shaka King who, until this project came along, was on the verge of giving up making feature films altogether. MPR's Andrew Lyne bonked takes it from here. Yes, Judas and the Black Messiah is about Fred Hampton and how he led the Black Panthers in Chicago. But it's also about William O'Neill, the man who infiltrated the Black Panthers in spied on Hampton on behalf of the FBI. Shaka King told me that the Lucas Brothers who co wrote the story, sold the idea to him like this. Their pitch that they laid out was we want to make a movie about Fred Hampton and William O'Neal. That's kind of like the departed the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie Inside the World of Cointelpro, or Counterintelligence program, the 19 sixties project where the FBI infiltrated and disrupted groups like the Black Panthers, and I was like I see it. I'm done. I'm in Judas is a tight, intense movie. Yes, like the departed and other Scorsese type crime movies. It's a long way, though, from King's first feature film newly weeds from 2013. So what you got here? Newly weeds tells the story of a young couple in Brooklyn who smoke a lot of weed where Judas is loud and fast. Really? Weeds is quiet and tender. I'm done. I'm done online. Won't want Wanna hang out. We hang up. Yeah. How are we supposed to go to the Galapagos? If you mind the bag every two minutes. It hits similar beats as movies by other indie darling directors like Joe Swanberg or the Duplass Brothers. The film Independent Spirit Awards even gave King the Someone to watch award after it came out, which came with a $25,000 grant. Not bad for someone fresh out of N Y. U film school. But after that initial fanfare, I was so depressed after making newly weeds and my expectations for the release just not coming to fruition. The movie didn't get much attention outside the festival circuit from agents and distributors, largely because it was a movie with black actors who no one knew on at that time that was deemed worthless. The film's release in 2013 wasn't that long ago, but it was just before what a friend of Kings jokingly dubbed. The Black Excellence Industrial Complex. You're Selma's and Moon Lights and Black Panthers when movie studios realized they could make a lot of money by releasing films by and starring black people. Nearly weeds. Loss of momentum burnt king out on the idea of making another feature film, But he did have an idea for a short rolling around in his head. It was kind of silly kind of outrageous, sweetheart. Lips. Excuse me, miss. It's called Moon Yang's after the Italian slur for black people want heard on the streets of Brooklyn in it, King and two others play these three black guys who talk like they're in the mom movies. King has such a fondness for It was somewhat inspired by King's experience growing up in a mostly black part of Brooklyn, but going to high school in South Brooklyn, where everyone the Irish Americans, Greek Americans, Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, all talks like the Italian American kids, and those kids were Hilarious. They were profane. They were quick witted, and we were not friends put like I could appreciate their sense of humor. The movie is a concise examination of race, gender gentrification. As King's character gets into an argument with his sister over a MetroCard, you did not have a dime. Put 1000 until the white guy comes by and says hi to the sister. Hi. How you doing? How are you? You guys just don't know what both outta here. Oh, Polluted the movie is fun and poignant, and the process reminded King how much he loved making movies. That movie saved me. You saved me. I didn't see that or know that about Shaka. But I could understand, and I could see how that could happen. Charles de King, no relation to director Shocking is the CEO and founder of Macro which since its founding in 2015 has produced movies and TV shows featuring non white people, including Judas and the Black Messiah. It was before the oscarssowhite moment. Of 2015. There's a lot that's happened since then. There is much more of an openness and I think an understanding of the business opportunity there. Which brings us to King today, making a movie about an anti capitalist black radical at a very capitalist Hollywood studio without watering down the politics. The deal is to respect the authenticity. Fred Hampton Jr is the current chairman of the Black Panther Party, Cubs and son of Fred Hampton. He says he and the other Panthers had their guards up when they were approached about this film. The Panthers have long been subjected to propaganda campaigns and misrepresentations. But he says King and the rest of the cast and crew definitely navigated the crossroads between their creative goals and the Panthers. Political ones. Well enough, anyway. Revolutionaries never satisfied. You know, I wish there was more political cartoon. We could've pushed. In a certain point, However, I'll put the people's need before before my needs my wants and desires. For instance, the relationship between Fred Hampton and his partner, Deborah Johnson, was a tricky thing to get right. The poet.

"Goes on to suggest to share that the party taught self-defense classes to senior citizens, the Black Panthers launch seniors against a fearful environment safe after a group of older Oakland residents asked them to teach self defense to fend off muggers. The seniors had originally approached the police for help, but were told Just walk close to the curb according to the and a black star and so the safe program also provided free transportation to older locals could posit their social security and pension checks out. All right. So yeah, just even more that they even talked about as well. But yeah, so, you know those were all like brand spanking new bits of information for me. So that's why I thought that would be really cool to share here with local free Nation because who knew the Black Panthers did all of that amazement. I mean, that's something yeah, they have a lot of things under their belt that we want to know how long they're not we just always see that there are some type of militant group but there's a lot more to the Black Panthers than we knew definitely what should people take away from what the Black Panthers stood for equality isn't reserved for a specific race gender Creed or age as we talked about some of the phenomenal initiatives at the party not only in English. Editing created but implemented right? Cuz it's one thing to have an idea and it's quite another to actually execute and they actually executed and they actually helped other people's lives right whether the party was you know, nothing in life is without fault. Nothing in life is without needing of change. But yeah here I think in this conversation the focus is really thinking about some of the positive things that they did and ultimately there's a lot of negative stuff that you can find on the internet yourself. So we definitely were not looking to have a conversation to bash the group. I think having you know, generally not knowing kind of some of their own initiatives I think is great insight for not only us but anyone listening here because if you didn't know this you now know and now you can make your own judgment call about the party home and if you want to learn more, this is a good starting point to learn more. I think that's why I love our conversations because it's usually just like a really great starting point to say. Hey, I want to look into this more. I want to suck. And a little bit more so that that I think is something to take away is it like you should listen to this and say I want to know more and then you should also listen to this and say I need to have an open mind about all things that I'm educating myself on definitely that makes sense and think yeah, there's just a big misconception about the Black Panthers that they took like a hate group that promote it Supremacy over others and that's just not the case as we saw from some of our examples. They were social justice group that stood up for the disenfranchised and they believed in defending oneself against abuse and domestic Terror. They weren't people just to sit back and turn the other cheek. They said hey, you know, we have the right to bear arms. So we will wage this battle was it was definitely part of their belief, but it wasn't just the main thing. They didn't go around saying hey, we're in a threatened you with this. They just said we'll defend ourselves and people didn't like that dead. Even though they're Second Amendment is a second amendment lovers who they definitely yeah offend categorize in a way that you know, they didn't get categories like them and even even now phone number we have people going out against the protesters armed with their rifles and shooting protestors and no one and there's no big stance against them. There's no FBI investigation into these groups and militias that we publicly know. Oh, yeah. I mean, hopefully there are but we don't publicly know about that. I mean, yeah, we don't know at least we've never witnessed that yeah, maybe years from now, we'll find out right as of now just seems like they're kind of like going about their business doing what they want. There's no public kind of like dismissal of what they're doing Behavior. Yeah. There's nothing nothing's being said publicly about that's not weird. We don't stand for that. I think people do like some our leadership is doing that not leadership other type of people in the media not everyone stands behind birth. Type of behavior. There are people who like that's not acceptable but it's like yeah, our leadership has made that clearer shipped there. There's a lot of things that could be said. Yeah, it is a lot but I just think that's interesting. But as of now we have these people that are coming out against protesters armed and there's the leadership isn't taking a stance on that but it's an interesting thing right here compared to a black panthers that many people took stands. Yeah. Yeah, they yeah FBI and all that. Yeah. Yeah. They I think they were just trying to make Society Equitable and I thought they were about empowerment for blacks that little to no support at the time. They weren't trying to hurt anybody else. They actually just wanted to help people which is a great thing to do in that a good moral standing Point actually, which I wouldn't have known when I was a kid. I didn't yeah black you're black panther and you thought who percent of people was there some just yep. You do not really tough and just do whatever they want to get their get what they want but they are more they're so much more than have. There's so much more to the Black Panthers the biggest takeaways that people don't understand that there was so much more that they yeah and and then in the open minded to hearing about them as well and like I said, there was a lot of perpetrators in the group who were made to make them out as the bad guys and young people don't want to talk about it or trade by yeah. They were they were paid by federal government to do this. That's interesting and the US government's been caught doing this before for other groups. So it's like what's life, I mean they did it for the Black Panthers as well. We have to we have to be honest and honest with ourselves. Yeah. Our government will fund certain things that go against parties that are actually doing good things for the community. They they do that. It happens. Well, there's no there's different initiatives that are maybe more radical in nature and that Doe not necessarily stand like a dog Of us as American people are all of us in this country may or may not agree with that stance. But you know more more I think at least we should just be the problem with Pop-Pop public life around that like not just be like, oh that happened like but we should say like we should have accountability and we should we should say what actually happened though too. Right? Yeah and what actually just say that was their first job like a national issue with that. You know, there's a lot of it's it's challenging life is very sticky. Oh, yeah, but that but it's just good to know don't just have a one-sided view of these groups. I want to say that group evil know they should never exist. No, that's not what they were about let's get real people sure. You are now listening to walking free walking free walking free month free and free podcast about being real and honest. Here we go. Yo, here we go. Yo, so what what's the scenario? It's scenario time guys. Scenario one Ferry and heard that the Black Panthers used to carry concealed firearms whenever they were meetings. Does this mean the Black Panthers were a pro violence.

And let me just come right out of the gates here by saying, I hope you get a third Oscar not here for. That's Gary knock on wood my desk is what's there? Thank you. Thank you. I started off. I introduced you by saying that I thought that really the most visually compelling part of the film aside from the action and the actors themselves were the costumes that you made because as I was watching a Black Panther. I noticed that, you know, the outdoor scenes are beautiful, but we don't actually see all that much of where the Condon's live ingred detail. But we do get to know so much about them in their culture through what they wear. I mean, did you see the costuming for the film as central to the storytelling as you know, as we who watched it, and I've seen lately, and the costumes gave us an opportunity to delve into specific parts of the African tribal culture as well as to bring so much color and vibrancy to the film. There's a lot of scenes that take place in Vero real expanse. Environment. And we were able to color that environment with the tube blankets and the beautiful red Masci color for the door Malaysia. And you know, it just was a feast of color. Yeah. So so tell me more about that. When you first were brought on board for Black Panther. How did you start the process? I mean, how early were you brought on board as being the costume designer? Well, the interview process actually begin my journey. I was given a little bit of information and before the interview, and because I didn't know a lot about the Black Panthers story. I read the comics. I looked at the 'lustration in all of the comics before my interview. And then I masked a collection of images of what I thought would be. We'll Kanda, you know, whether they came from afro. Punk or from just beautiful African diaspora photos of people wearing galas in jeans or African garments with some modern twist to it. And I collected all these images and win into a marvel studios to meet with Ryan Kugler and brought them with me to share, you know, marvels like the CIA, you know, the halls and doors magically close behind you. But I had them all amassed in a dropbox folder. And I didn't know marvel you can't really open dropbox. So they were able to kind of break the code if you would. And I share these images with Ryan Kugler, and it turned out that some of the same images he had collected. So there was the beginnings of a meeting of the minds and just hearing him talk about you know, growing up in Oakland. I could relate to my roots in Massachusetts. And some of the things that we did as kids like celebrating Kwanzaa and listening to the last poets and really sort of thinking about afro coup future growing up a he kind of had that same indoctrination. I mean, you know, a few years later than me, but still a part of both of our our upbringings. And that that also created a connection, and I think that's how our journey began was the mutual respect of where we had both. You know, lied in respect to developing more, afro future, more African culture and sort of trying to answer the question of that connection between Africa and African American. Yeah. So so there's a lot to talk about there. But I also just first of all SE couple more specifics about designs that we see in Black Panther because they are so spectacular. I mean, you know, from the key in the in the in the comic, for example, the Queen Mother of reconduct, I think she doesn't really wear anything like fen any kind of fantastical headrests shoe, you put the Bassett in life has all right? All right. Angela Bassett in a paper bag still look like the Queen. But Ramona in the comics is very low key..
