Why do you want to grow and and what does growth actually mean? What what does that do for you? And helping people really understand that it's not really about that and that it's not about the numbers because behind fax number is a person who's actually consuming and engaging with your content.

"The American Cancer Society said today that the death rate from cancer fell twenty seven percent between nineteen ninety one and two thousand sixteen the Cancer Society says that translates to two point six million deaths prevented during that time. But as John Yang report, not all the news is good. Judy. The study says the steady decline is largely due to fewer people smoking and advances in early detection and treatment death rates from lung. Colorectal prostate and breast cancers have all dropped, but obesity related cancer deaths are on the rise, and the disparity between deaths in rich and poor communities is getting wider cancer remains the nation's second leading cause of death behind heart disease and experts rejected more than six hundred thousand Americans will die from it this year. Dr Jay Leonard Lipton. Feld is here to walk us through the report. He's the American Cancer society's acting chief medical officer, Dr looked and felt thanks so much for being with us. Let's sort of unpacked some of these numbers. You talk about the study says lung cancer. Rate's going down largely because smoking is going down. But it's going down twice as fast among men among women. Why is that John? We need to understand the men have been smoking for much longer time and women began to take up the habit in the late sixties one thousand nine hundred seventy s so took a while longer time for the women to understand that smoking is not good for your health. Did for the men and the death rate decline in men. This started more steeply earlier than it did for women. Fortunately, we're seeing decreases in smoking and decreases in lung cancer death rates for both men and women as we provide this report. And the study also found that there are higher lung cancer rates among women born in the nineteen sixties compared to men of the same age any idea why that is. Well, that's correct. That was research was actually recently reported by my colleagues here at the American Cancer Society. The reality is we don't really know why that's happening. It's not due to differences and smoking behaviors. So there are other factors that are leading to that increase in lung cancer. Having said that I think is very very important for all of this thunder stand that lung cancer happens in non smokers too. We have a tendency to sort of over emphasize the smoking aspects, but nonsmokers can get lung cancer and may. A somewhat different disease. We don't know the may respond differently to treatments, and we're learning about that as well. But the bottom line is we're starting to see that occur in younger people, particularly younger women, and we need to learn more about why that is happening. And as I said in the introduction. There's also in the study says that obesity related cancer deaths are increasing the rate of deficit, increasing what types of cancers are we talking about there. Well, there are a number of cancers that are linked to obesity thirteen an all perhaps more, but we certainly know that breast cancer and particularly cancer of the uterus in women are are related to obesity liver. Cancer colon cancer, their number of cancers that are impacted by being overweight, and we also know that in this country we have an obesity epidemic and that has not yet completely played out. So again, we we know this is a problem. We don't yet know how much of an impact is going to have going forward. But it will have an impact does something that we need to know we need to take into account. We need to alert people that this is a very serious problem. The study also said that the racial disparity is, narrowing the disparity between cancer deaths among African Americans among white people is narrowing. But that it's getting wider the disparity between bad outcomes in rich communities and poor communities. What what he thinks behind that? Well, it's not only rich and poor communities. This also in rural communities in the cities. And there are a lot of explanations for the most obvious of which is that some of the lifestyle behavior different among those who are poor versus those who are better educated. So smoking behaviors alcohol consumption, other lifestyle issues obesity might be a factor as well. So that's just one part of the explanation, but access to care is very very critical matter. And if you don't have funds, if you don't have insurance, you don't get the type of care that might be the best care for you. If you have cancer and access to care in rural communities is a very serious issue throughout our country. There are large parts of the United States were adequate medical care, particularly adequate cancer care requires people to travel great distances or even getting screened for cancer. So we need to really take a very careful look at all of these issues. And I do think we need to make a national commitment. We all need to make a commitment personal commitment. Whether it be government other organizations, the American Cancer Society among them, we need to take a careful look at this and figure out what we need to do to make the outcomes equal. We know we can do we've seen that happen that equal care can produce equal outcomes. We just need to make certain that everyone has access to that equal care. Doctor J Leonard Lipton fell to the American Cancer Society. Thank you. So very much. Thank you. Me too. A good book can be transformative in age of social media and a growing popularity of book clubs what we read can also help create communities. Jeffrey Brown explores all this with gory. Eat them who has created a space to celebrate voices that might not otherwise be heard the well red black Pearl is online community and book lab that focuses on black women writers, we really focus on building amplify the voices of black women, especially they'd be writers. And so we have a festival of book club and online presence. So you can participate in various ways wasn't an office idea. Very unexpected idea was actually a gift from my partner. Peo- he may be the earth that said well, red black girl, and I found myself in conversation with so many different women and its first idea that I should actually start something with this. What is it means to be a well read blacker conversation because they were seeing your shirt on the subway in the grocery store at the gym. I they inquired where do I get this shirt? Great. And then it was like, so who are your favorite authors. And who are you reading naturally, we went see Tony Morrison Gordon dealer? Maya Angelou, we've talked about the literary greats that really influenced the black cannon, and then it started. So what are you reading? Now, where the new writers that are on your book shelves, and I it was really a curiosity thing. And the beginning was quite selfish. I wanted to make new friends, and as I did that it grew. And I built the Instagram the presence on Instagram grew and it just got larger and larger clearly tapped into some some oh. It was a lot of times thought women we are visible in spaces. And when it comes to the publishing industry, there's not always avenue for women's become writers or under understand what the dynamics are. And it just became like a cheerleading spot for those who want to do the writing and want them people to buy their books. They have to really seamlessly. So the the Thala g. You asked all these writers that kind of question when did you first see yourself? Yes. Because that was the way into well. That was the origin sore for me. I have always been a person to question and to look for myself in books. My favorite book is my Angelo's. I know why the caged bird sings, and that was the first time I really saw myself on the pages of a bath. Meaning watch in terms of reflection. Understanding the dialogue having someone that felt and looks like me on the I had read a lot of Little Women. I I saw myself in Joe March I read weathering heights before that I don't think I really saw an accurate reflection of a young black girl coming of age until I read my Angelo in Toni Morrison the bluest eye such a classic for so many young black women. It was a turning point for me. It really understand that the story of black womanhood is one of survival and shoe and just excellence as well. Just an interesting thing. The one thing that books we often say those of us who are readers. We find ourselves in others. We learn about ourselves. Even if we're not Representative in that story. Oh, completely just practicing. This muscle of senior selves in someone else's story and building a stronger perspective and a lot of these stories whether it's more or Jacqueline Woodson Jerry Jones, they are really looking at their origin stories, and what led them to become writers. What helps them really see their own stories and the books that they read that's really important like you need that reflection for anyone. So what surprised you when you started getting their response? You did you love the all the tributes to Tony Morrison? Oh, yes. Is so beautiful. So she she was really a highlight in the collection and also not all the stories were dedicated necessarily, the black women Barbara Smith writes about James Baldwin, and how his words really helped her become a writer. There's one writer Gabby. She writes about while doll and how reading the memory boy was fundamental her experience. So it's not necessarily just about. Zac reflection. But to make sure that these symbols have meaning and they feel significant. Yeah. And you can really just explore like reading feels to me like exploratory practice, you should be able to find cheerleaders and stories where you can fall into these role. Of course, writers these women who became writers how much did you see their origin story? Connecting to the writers if they became. Oh, yeah completely. I mean, I think of jasmine ward. You know at the end of her story. She says she didn't she read this one book, and it wasn't until she wrote her own that she was able to it was such a profound seatmate a powerful way to end it compelled to watch right? It's all her own story. And I think that is the take away from the enthralling that we should be telling our own stories, and we need to be for assistant with that. And not not give up we've been talking so much about the writers says you said started with readers. Yes. Who were the reader? There's so many readers. The Indian theology. I have lists of reading recommendations. And I did that very intentionally because I was thinking about my Ingersoll, and the things that I wanted to read I always I always wonder read to kill a Mockingbird. I wanted other alternatives. And this book has a list about black feminism black playwrights speculative fiction. Black coming of age stories poetry is a full lifting of how to reimagined the literary canon, and there's no excuse to say like, I don't know what you know person of color. I can introduce mysel- abyss or to my high school costume. I think of it as hopefully a great tool for young people and educators, you still have an actual book club. Yes. I do. Yes. Old-fashioned book club. Get together. And it's a great. You know, I think for me having a book club is a great lesson and listening. I really loved listening to everyone tell their own story and how they relate to the characters get so my favorite part. I love doing social media. But being able to sit next to a reader and look them in the eye and persuade them maybe like a character a little bit more. I love that back and forth right to well. Red black girl book club red black girl. Yes, glorieta. Thank you very much so much. And finally, another in.

The way Glorieta tells it it all began with a T shirt. It was a birthday present from her partner. And it had that simple statement on it. Well, red black girl, the shirt was also embellished with names of some of Adam's favourite authors from twenty Morrison to Gloria Naylor, it attracted a lot of attention. I would be wearing the t shirt in. In public spaces in New York City in as you know, tend to be in close proximity to one another all the time. So sitting on the subway talking to people and black women coming up to me and asking me about where I got the t shirt who my favorite author was it just started these very natural conversations and in one of those conversations to continue.

Everyone was asked to answer the question. When did you first see yourself in literature at imposed that question, even though she had a slight reservation about it originally? I thought that everyone would have a different story about Tony Morrison, which would have been incredible. But that was a little bit of the fear. Michael everyone, right? The same story about the bluest. I will tell repetitive. And that was not the case at all. And I'm says the collection really tells the story of how these women became writers. Some did I see themselves and well known authors like Zora Neale hurston or yes Tony Morrison, but the inspirations were wide ranging from James Baldwin two books about witches and magic Stephanie Powell watts who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness wrote about. The bible story. She learned as a child here. She read an excerpt from her essay I wanted to write stories that spoke to my time in the world of the people. I know I wanted to tell about their extraordinary lives their attempts to maintain dignity in a hostile world their dreams for their children, and grandchildren that would come after them the stories of the people I lived with related to by blood in law new in the neighborhoods and communities of the New South sounded much like those stories I'd love to from scripture curly. Bruce endings loved the children's book amazing grace about a girl named grace who was told. She could not play Peter Pan in a school play because she was black and a girl grace wouldn't let anyone imposed those limitations on her. And Bruce, adding says that major unforgettable grace is ultimately who I landed on, but it wasn't so much because I saw myself in her completely. It was because she was someone is fired to be presenting says, she always comes back to grace when she's assessing her life and thinking about who she wants to be I have a. Three year old daughter right now. And when I was building her library. I realized that I'd lost my old copy of amazing grace. So I immediately ran out and bought another one. And as I was reading it to my daughter for the first time tears came to my eyes because it just felt like I was home and away. And I was realizing all of these things about myself that I had made peace with and now I was able to pass her onto my daughter. Bruce Eddings will be at the well read black girl festival today surrounded by people like her who loved to read and write and talk about books and presiding over it all we'll be glory and the original well, red black girl.

"black girl book club" Discussed on KQED Radio

"This is weekend edition from NPR news. I'm Scott Simon Gloria Steinem loves to read and she loves to talk. So she started a book club. And then she started inviting authors to come and discuss their books. She set up an Instagram account and began publishing a newsletter soon. She'd created a genuine phenomenon known as the well read black girl book club. It also spawned an annual literary festival which is being held today. In Brooklyn festival coincides with the publication of an anthology of essays that were edited by Gloria Adam and written by other read, well, black girls, NPR's Lynn neary has the story the way Gloria Adam tells it it all began with a T shirt. It was a birthday present from her partner and had that simple statement on it. Well, red black girl. This year was also embellished with names of some of FM's favorite authors from Tony Morrison to Gloria Naylor, it attracted a lot of attention. I would be wearing the t shirt. In public spaces in New York City. And as you know, we tend to be in close proximity to one another all the time. So sitting on the subway talking to people and black women coming up to me and asking me about where I got the t shirt who my favorite author was it just started these very natural conversations. And I'm one of those conversations to continue. So she decided to sort of book club that would focus on black women both readers and writers. So if you want to come and join its hawk about black women writers, you're more than welcome. If you wanna talk about Ernest Hemingway. This might not be the booklet for you Carla Bruce Eddings heard about the book club from a friend and attended one of the early meetings. It really feels like taking a long exhale. They're very informal. We sit in a circle, and it's just such a comforting and welcoming space author Stephanie Powell watts was invited to discuss her book..
