Who has worked as an editor at magazines like essence. Entertainment weekly and life marine says off hype that heralded. This novel is justified. I knew from all the buzz about the final revival of opal and nev that it's a work of fiction by first time novelists wall but after i started her book i had to stop and double check to make sure that this wasn't a true account of a real life. Rock duo from the nineteen seventies. That's how authentic this odd novel feels composed as it is out of pandemonium of fictional interviews footnotes to talk show transcripts letters and editor's notes to say that the final revival of opel and nev is a sly similac rim of a rock oral. History is to acknowledge only the most obvious of this. Novel's achievements walton aspires to so much more in the story about music race and family secrets that spans five decades and all the glitzy quick change narrative styles don't detract attention from the core emotional power of her story. I tell you even many of the fake footnotes in this novel are moving the premise of the final revival of opel. And nev is this in two thousand fifteen. A journalist named sonny curtis becomes the first african-american editor in chief of a rolling stone. Type magazine. sunny decides that her first big get will be a book length interview with opel jewel and nev charles their interracial rock duo. Who struck it big in the early seventies and were immortalized by a photograph taken of them. After a racially fueled riot broke out one of their performances afterwards opel who's african american naturally bald and held in her prime as an intergalactic showstopper along the lines of tina turner and mary clayton briefly became a punk icon and then faded from view. Nev- who's white and british has gone on to enjoy a long career sonny's interest particularly in opal story. Turns out to be personal. Her father. jimmy. Curtis was a drummer who had an affair with opel. He was killed during that infamous concert. When fighting broke out between members. And the hells angels type. Fans of a southern fried rock. Group called the bond brothers who are also performing that night. The bond brothers had waving a confederate flag around backstage and a fed up opel manage to slip the flag under her address and tie old dixie as she puts it the less place a cracker would come looking for it. Once opened never went on stage. The bond brothers fans racist heckling escalated and opel flipped her costume up so that as she says they could all see exactly what i thought about them and all their hate. If you know you're rock history the chaos. That results sounds a lot like the nineteen. Sixty-nine rolling stones concert at altamont sunny pieces together. The tail of that pivotal concert and the shameful secret that's been hidden at the heart of it. For decades through interviews with a chorus of characters they range from one of the surviving bond brothers to announce seventy year old woman who worked as a receptionist at opel unnerves old record.

What brings me to reproductive justice. You know To answer that question. I have to take myself back to my hometown of wingate north carolina which is in rural north carolina. Honor one of those small one. Stop light kind of towns off a two lane highway and growing up in the rural south is. It's beautiful in so many ways that also opened my eyes to a lot at a very young age growing up in my community. I went to a school where there was only abstinence only education so we were desperately trying to find ways to have conversations about our bodies and to to talk about the feelings in the urges that we were getting as we were growing into adolescence and there was no space to do that until we had to find those things on our own and to create community with each other in huddle up in spaces to try to get this information in that to me. Just didn't seem right but we were doing the best that we could in. You know the church black church was episode for me my community. It's where i learned how to organize. I learned the had a voice. I mean there's just so much to Organizing route that. I get to the black church right because it was just an important piece in my journey however it was also a space where you know. We couldn't talk about bodies. It was just not the conversation that people were trying to have but almost every young girl that was in my church in so many that were in my community outreach. That went to school with. They were having children before graduating high school. And i'm like it's obvious that we're doing it. It's obvious that you know he's a conversation that we need to have and we just weren't having them and you know i i left wingate. I went to an h. b. c. You and came out while i was in school and it was like another part of my journey of understanding my body consent intimacy all different things that come along with growing into a young adult and i still felt. There wasn't a lot of space to have these conversations and I was desperately seeking those spaces and just trying to put the pieces together for myself. And so i think it's the experiences on. Unfortunately i also dealt with sexual assault in my adolescence as well as these experiences just all came together. And i didn't know what the term was yet but i knew that these issues were important to me in. I wanted to find answers and solutions to help me into also help those folks in our community that cared about. And so when. I put that beside you know reproductive justice movement that was started by black women in nineteen ninety four. The world starts collide. Right so yeah wasserman. Twelve black women actually came together. Some of which are very active in the work today. Like loretta ross. And dr tony bond able may will thomas here in georgia. These black women came together to create a framework that was more expansive in when thinking about our reproductive lives in this country and they brought together social justice in reproductive health and rights to talk about the intersection of her lives of black women and to have an organizing frame that allowed us to really talk about the myriad of issues. Right that we deal with lear making our decisions about our reproductive lives and so this framework was developed in nineteen ninety four battles women in now it is led by women of color all across country. Today right where we are all fighting for the human rights to have the children that we want in the ways that we want to prevent pregnancies without shame and with dignity to be able to parent our children in healthy and safe environments rights. We we we can already see the intersections of our work in terms of you know making sure i were not being plagued by you know. Environmental issues are making our water. Unclean or police brutality and we think about the rising rates of maternal mortality in this country and ultimately nova's work is really about our human rights bodley autonomy to make our own decisions about our bodies therefore our lives and so that's what reproductive justice is. It's the work it's not political home. It's where i feel whole and complete and those experiences again of growing up. Is that country. Girl and unique county is what really brought me to this work.

Black Doctors Use Social Media To Share Accurate Information About COVID-19 Vaccine
"The American public is hesitant to get a covert 19 vex. That number goes up to a third of Black Americans, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation poll last month. Hesitancy is rooted in real mistreatment and fanned by myths and misinformation, as NPR's Ping Wang reports some black doctors or finding creative ways to encourage vaccine acceptance. Well, very few vaccine safety problems have been reported. A lot of rumors are still floating online doctor Krista Marie Coleman has been tackling Cove admits on Tic Tac. She's the family physician in Orlando, and she describes one of the recent short video she made to counter misinformation. So yeah, so with the video I I'm using a trending song that people can relate to and as we can here with the song, it says, no, That's not true. So I say the covert vaccine will make you infertile, and I say that's not true. She posted the top second video in early December, and it's been viewed more than half a million times. And then I do a dance at the end, which people can relate to as well. A recent study published in the annals of Internal Medicine, like that public Health Message is geared at communities of color. Learn. It showed that black Americans are more receptive to information. If it comes from black doctors like Coleman. For some people, it means a lot when it comes from someone who looks like them. When it comes from someone who speaks like them. But only 5% of physicians in the U. S are black. Robert Drummond is another black doctor that's turned to social media to share accurate information.

With TV actor Dondre Whitfield's first Let me start by acknowledging the mistrust and acknowledging and understanding that there actually is a very real basis for that mistrust Well, said this deep distrust because that to the history of medical experimentation on slaves. It also goes back to the mid 19 hundreds when black men were deliberately not treated for syphilis. So researchers could see what would happen and it comes up to the present day. Just last week, a black doctor named Susan Moore died from covert 19 after alleging poor treatment at the hospital. When she asked for more pain medication, she said her white doctor made her feel like a drug addict. In the Instagram chat. Drummond pointed to a survey a couple years ago showing that a lot of doctors still wrongly believe that African Americans have a higher tolerance for pain. Everything from the top. We have thicker skin than two. We have a reduced we haven't heightened pain threshold so we don't need as much medication. This thing This is not from 19 hundreds. This is right in the 19 sixties. This is from the lake to thousands right now. As a black man, his part of the medical establishment, Drummond says his job is not to tell people to get vaccines. And said he wants to help people make their own informed decisions. But not everyone lives online. Alison Matthews, a sociologist at Wake Forest University, is researching how to increase trust in covert vaccines. In addition to the Internet, we've used conference wines as well, Azaz Mailed stuff out to people. You have to meet people where they are, in whatever level of communication is the most convenient for them. Matthew says that beyond black doctors, there are other community leaders that are trusted for advice. She works with black church leaders and sororities and civil rights groups. To generating trust in the health system is not a new challenge in the black community, says Dr Lisa Cooper, who directs the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity. Even before Cove, it 19 came up. A lot of the work that I did to try to address disparities in health care was focused on Having African Americans and people who are traditionally not given the sense of power and control in their healthcare play a more active role. For Cooper. The challenge is not just about overcoming vaccine hesitancy. It's for the medical community to learn how to build real trust. Ping

The oldest independent African American denomination is the African methodist. Episcopal church founded in Philadelphia in Seventeen, ninety, four Richard, Alan the formerly enslaved black man who purchased his own freedom. Black religious leaders such as Reverend Alan. Took a strong abolitionist dance, even helping slaves escape through the underground railroad. During the civil war some served as army chaplains, and once the war ended many mobilized black political participation, some even helped public office. The Black Church provided leadership opportunities for men and women who, by and large, were in subservient positions in the workforce until all of these preachers doing work in the black, church have been critical to giving by people space to envision a different world as possible in. The late eighteen hundred saw dramatic proliferation of black churches. And the church remained central to black life through the twentieth century, particularly at the height of the civil rights movement. In the nineteen sixties, church is playing a much more overtly militant and political role in terms of trying to organize people to defeat Jim Crow End Racism, and also to promote economic equality.

"And and use us for our context but white progresses have got to ask what who serves the Black Community. Who's done it? Largely coup mobilizes the largest volunteer base in black communities. So it's not just that we gather it's just the one dimensional for for hundreds of years. When it was illegal we would go down our ancestors. I just preached about this. Recently they would go down and sneak up for meetings under the bushes. They break branches. You know which way to go for these secret meetings because it was illegal to pray because a slave on his stock and you got good legend religion. You would think that you were equal and you might wanna eat at their table. You might want to marry their daughters Hell you might want about property next door to them. So they brand was to substantiate or justify slavery because it was a it was a mechanism evangelism then when she evangelized your crew thought jeeze if we christianized him if we baptize them we can give them communion. These foods are going to think that they wanted us and they didn't believe in integrated Earth or integrated heaven so they didn't give a crap so they so they legalize prayer gatherings so slaves actually beat for praying but you know in the nineteen forties. My Grandmother Contracted Tuberculosis and four. Kids never married the church community in southeast Missouri issue would call it a town called Haitai. It probably was named up to Haiti but a spelled H. A. Y. T. I was called Haitai When she got married in one to find work in Chicago the church to her four kids at my grandmother loved Shuki. My mother would take case she'd go to jail over kids. In fact her first church gathering does he wasn't a church going lady. She had a knife an ice pick and a forty five in a purse. And what they care for her children while she established Chicago she came out of children in the church. Wasn't just what we went off the timbering. It's where you would be a boy or any All we put on a suit on Sunday new a superintendent. That's in your prayer meeting. You got to preach. Perhaps you've got to sing and put into talk. So the church is more to us than just A descendant of A European structure that dominated people took land and and was in cahoots with with with Rome. That's not the way to Black Church road. It was it was social service. It was empowerment centers. Training Century was the whole village that supported a child. It was all of that and for those of us who feel a call into ministry bucket was my colleagues who African American. That's still a mindset. This is what we come to the people and get money. Here's what people come to get a sense of hope in times like these happen and we're just beside ourselves because we can't and I'm finding ways to do so electrically so if there are if there are folks like myself who are who are who are white progressives who want to be allies. What are the best ways that we can support people our community who are not in that position of privilege like as you're looking at for instance your context and the people you know in Madison Wisconsin? What are you most need from them right now? Those who are operating out of more privileged context for progressives. I say I would say talk to your friends. Who are part of the community and I mean to geographical community for example people wanting to know what can we do in the black community? Reach out to your friends. Were part of the black community. Didn't said hey what organizations supporting who's helping in your community or what are the kind of organizations we should support against something somewhere if you don't know exactly where to go You help your gets are GONNA help anyway. But he is in. You need cross cultural relationships across class relationships to say if you're in this community where would you give money and you can make a difference anywhere in the country so if you don't know the communities there you might know the community someplace else and say? I know that they help their community and will need to be strong for their community. So I want to support Vince. You just WanNa take making a difference. Of course you want to do it at home because that's where it matters so much but really at this time people just wanted be generous and compassionate and to know in their hearts that they're helping someone in need or helping those who can help someone in need so that they're able to sleep at night. That's great and I would. I would note with a with the conversations that are happening in our government. Right now about sending Americans checks. We could be talking about one to four thousand dollars for a family I think it's important for those of us who are in a position of economic privilege to take A large portion of what we receive and give it to those who have so little for whom a thousand dollars is not going to help them get their get their heads completely above water right right. That'd be that'd be so helpful. Just like the government's in a position to help those folks. We have to look at those who got smaller amounts of didn't get anything. It's sort of the concept of paint afford. I'm working on peace right now about. Are we going to be a more generous caring community after this? What's what are we learning? What's being Adjusted what what can be. The positive outcome Berar appeal. And it's got to be feel more connected to our fellow human because right now we really really don't in it's odd that it is in social isolation. They're thinking how how how disenfranchised our society is because we have not down to others and we're not aware of each other's needs as well. Thank you so much To my listeners. I'll be putting a link to Both to ALEX'S CHURCH INTO A couple of worthy ministries here in Maine that you can donate to that fit. That's I hope you do that.
