black godfather directed by our next guest Reginald Hudlin it's about the music executive who helped bill withers and Janet Jackson break through he wrangled Hank Aaron sponsorship deals with coca Cola he learned NFL player Jim Brown to the silver screen he's PD called when he got in trouble he has Barack Obama and Kamel Harris in his rolodex his name is Clarence avant and in the entertainment business he's known as the black godfather Reginald Hudlin whose produced films like Django Unchained and the Academy Awards he's also directed Marshall and house party he profile of art for documentary he interviewed nearly seventy five people from Quincy Jones to Bill Clinton all of whom can claim that Yvonne had a profound impact on their careers and their personal lives and of course husband speaks with the legend himself Reggie Hudlin join us last summer to talk about it so when I when people ask you a question why is Clarence a lot important why is he well the fact that you don't know who he is but he's been responsible for most of the biggest pop cultural events in the last fifty years it is global how is that possible that this guy is so influential but I don't know who he is and that you know I'm a well read person well that should make you go well that's a very powerful person that he knows that many famous people does not want to be famous but continues to shape popular culture why doesn't he want to be famous why didn't he want to be famous I think you learn very early on from the his mentors who were well I had one of his mentors were trapped Capone and to quote the great KRS one real bad boys move in silence and I think he took that to heart and his life story is is amazing he's from a climax North Carolina like I I Google things to do in climax North Carolina like merry's goat farm came up that was it like there's nothing going on and climax North Carolina he's born nineteen thirty one dash yeah one of eight children how would you describe his upbringing as they say sure cropping is not technically slavery but slavery right so it's it's a town where his mother said well if you're walking and you hear a truck approaching just run into the woods and lay flat so they won't see you because the presumption ads at any given time you will be a target like wildlife and they will kill you mmhm so end he had a stepfather who would physically beat his mother so it didn't matter inside the house at some of the house it was he it was a hostile violent environment and at thirteen he said I am going to do something about it and put rat poison his stepfather's food his little brother told his dad I would need that which meant he had to leave now most people who look for that be a set back you're kicked out of the house instead he got a train for the first time as life all went to summit New Jersey and his life transformed he started out in the music business yes he was managing a night club than he was spotted by Joe glazier ran a company called associated booking which had seven five percent of all the black entertainment acts in America from Louie Armstrong Duke Ellington Billie Holiday everybody and is that you've got an ability and we're going to cite you some people I don't want to do that well you're going to do it and he ended up managing black white or otherwise some of the biggest acts of that era and in the big city to Los Angeles where he really flourished one of things really get about Clarence a lot in this in the documentary is his fearlessness yes his ability to walk into any room speak his mind yes and make his points what was behind that fearlessness I think the same courage that made him say I need to kill my stepfather I mean you know I'm a sense of like I don't have any resources I don't have any contacts but I'm going to figure this out and I don't see any reason why I shouldn't as for as much as I can and I is easy for me to back down from there it and he so we have a strong sense of justice he got told sort of the matrix see kind of like this is how the world really works from Joe glazier and no matter what room he ascended to as he went higher and higher up the corporate food chain he always rose to the occasion while maintaining his values which is a pretty rare combination my guest is Reggie had them we're talking about his new film the black godfather which is about Clarence gave out one of the most significant men in the music industry and Hollywood specially in in the in the black entertainment industry that people don't know about him it's amazing in a document he's so funny he some such a certain era of us what he doesn't really want to talk to you then he's gonna talk to you about about stuff and he comes back this current refrain of it's all about the numbers it's all about the numbers any sort of suggesting it's all about the money but it really isn't only about the money for him when you really at the end of the day after all of these interviews is spending so much time with them when you think about yes but the money what else is it about well I mean it is about the money in that he wants measurable growth right and he looked around and says look there's a whole bunch of people who are creating value and they're not getting what they deserve for it so I'm going to fight for people to get their fair payment for the for the for the value that they create I mean he's fine for economic parity which is still the front lines of the battlefield me as the woman's the secretary right so he fought for that for black people for anybody and the second thing is he understood that he said look added March you know because if someone hits me I'll hit back I'm not the non violent got but the fact is he had a unique battlefield which is the border and whether it was going to coca Cola and you know getting Hank Aaron the biggest endorsement deal that any athlete ever have the time at a time were Hey it was about to break Babe Ruth's record not only not getting an endorsement offers but getting death threats a by the back full every day so his okay here's unfairness and I'm going to make it right which she did and you know it was great for Hank does but great for coca Cola it was great for America and that's that's him all day every day my guess is Reggie Hudlin we're talking about his new documentary the black godfather which is all about Clarence Avon he got involved with politics and this is a great clip we have of the first time Andrew young and counter Clarence a lot and the sort of figured out what he could do for him let's take a listen all the religions known I really didn't know him so I called and we call up in these to you and the young I said yeah these are you running for Congress as India he's a in Georgia for the he's a are you crazy other well I don't know but program he said well if you crazy enough to run I'm brave enough to try to help you.

"Called true true justice brian stevens fight for equality true justice when you think about true justice what does that look like it looks radically different than what we're seeing today i don't think we have true justice when we have the world's highest rate of incarceration we have too much wealth too many resources too many possibilities for helping people in this country to be the most punitive society on the planet i think true justice means getting past this contrived view of drug addiction and drug dependency we said that people who are addicted and dependent are criminals when we should have said people with addiction independently have a health problem we need our healthcare system to respond to that problem i think true justice means that we don't put people in jails or prisons if they're not a threat to public safety and there are hundreds of thousands of people in our jails in prisons who are not a threat to public safety i think true justice means committing ourselves to rehabilitation and helping people recover it's about how we protect the health of a community how we improve public safety by doing more things for people who are victims of crime but also doing more things to help people never re-offend i think true justice means changing the way we talk about mental health in one of my new campaigns is really about what we're doing to people with severe disabilities we enforce the americans with disabilities act and the private sector and the public sector but not in the justice sector because of mandatory sentencing judges can't consider someone severe mental illness when they have to impose a punishment and i think it's unusual to care about people with disabilities in the private and public sector but not the justice sector and it's cruel to condemn someone two decades of imprisonment because they are disabled and so that needs to change that's what we're challenging the constitutionality of those kinds of sentences and i think to justice would just get us all closer to creating an environment where we are Actually reduce crime by improving health. And I don't think that's where we are in this country when you're in law school at Harvard. did they talk about these issues did you learn about these issues and ways to approach these issues not really i was in law school in the early eighties it was before the advent of clinical legal education and to be honest i was really frustrated in my first law school i went because i was concerned about racial inequality concerned about social injustice and it didn't seem like anybody was talking about that and actually left my first year and went to the school of government to pursue a degree in public policy didn't find that very affirming either just seem like we were being taught to maximize benefits and minimize costs but it didn't seem to matter who's got maximize who's caused minimize then i went back to the law school and what turned things around for me was actually taking an internship where i spent a month with a human rights organization providing legal services to people on death row that's where i met people literally dying for legal assistance and it was puck seventy two the condemn that began to radicalize my thinking about the law and i felt this desire to help condemned people get to something that felt more like justice and that's what radicalized law study for me when i got back you couldn't get me out of the law school library i needed to know everything about comedy and federalism and all of the doctrine that was going to be necessary to help condemned people and it's why i think clinical legal education the movement that is shaped education more recently where students are required to get proximate to to the poor to the excluded are required to learn about the dynamics and structures and systems that deny so many people access to justice is such a critically Important innovation in law school education. I'm wondering, because once you get out of law school, and you decide, okay, this is going to be my life's work. How and when did you decide this issue needs to be approached differently? when did you realize they're dippy a different approach because there were people who were concerned about it but necessarily weren't getting the results that they wanted or that you want yeah i it began early i worked on a case called mcklusky versus camp which was a united states court case where the court was being asked to strike down the death penalty because of racial bias and if some very powerful data in that case that established that you're eleven times more likely to get the death penalty if the victim is widen if the victim is black twenty two times more likely if the defendants black the victim is white and despite that the u._s. supreme court upheld georgia's death penalty by saying two things the first thing they said was if we deal with these racial disparities in the death penalty context we're going to have to deal with racial disparities in other areas we're gonna have to talk about this and the burglary setting the drug setting and misdemeanor setting and the courts that's too much for us to deal with and justice brennan wrote this heartbreaking descent where he ridiculed the court analysis as quote a fear of too much justice and he was right the court was essentially saying this problem is too big for us but it was the second thing the courts that started to really move me away and the court said certain amount of bias of certain level of racial inequality is quote inevitable and this doctrine of inevitability was radically at odds with what the court set in brown versus word of education it's a big truck and i realized that that was a loss of commitment to eliminating buys and discrimination and i've always been motivated by what the court has on the outside it has equal justice under law and i couldn't reconcile a commitment to equal justice onto law with this doctrine of inevitability and we kept fighting we kept fighting continued to do the work but it began to grow into this consciousness that things were going to have to change we we're going to have to talk differently about history and justice even to get the institutions of justice to do with they're supposed to do my guest is bryan stevenson the name of the documentaries true justice brian stevenson's fight for equality who came to you and said let's let's make documentaries and why did you say yes i know why you want to see us because the bigger picture but and when you said yes what were your conditions you know that's a great question i've been really reluctant to be a part of these kinds of things i really prefer just kind of being with clients doing the work but i guess i was growing increasingly frustrated that we weren't seeing the kind of storytelling that i think we need to see i worked with eva do for nay on thirteenth and was really inspired by the impact of that project it made me kind of think more openly about what we can do with film and the and the success of the book also got me thinking differently than i had thought previously and my only condition was that we i didn't want to put any of my clients at risk until we were going to have to tell the story in a way that didn't expose people in ways with they would be targets for retribution or people got angry they would be challenged and and you know we we opened up these new sites and so i did realize we're going to have to talk more broadly and and the folks were great jackie oliver who is the executive producer had made some film on slavery and that was really impressed with that and she introduced me to the coon hearts and trey alice with somebody we were working with on a short film and so i felt comfortable with the folks and that's how this that's how this happened we'll have more with bryan stevenson after quick break.

I'm on my way down there for today and tomorrow and Sunday. It's going to be a lot of fun. Where is that? So if people wanna go, it's mostly at landmark e street, they, they are showing movies at the naval memorial and, and the American history museum. But I just people just go to ASI dot com af I dock, and then get the schedule and download the app and see what's up, but they've got some really good movies this year. So this is three days Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Well actually started Wednesday night that screening national archives. A movie about Bryan Stevenson to the lawyer and activists and it was going on yesterday. But I'm going to dive in, in, in earnest today, last lawyer and activist I knew was William kuntsler. I've never heard of Brian Stevens Bryant has an incredible man. He's, he's the person who really spearheaded the I don't know the formal name it's base. The lynching museum in Montgomery, Alabama, which is just it looks like magnificent structure. And he's been doing a lot of important work around death penalty issues and just rest of Justice and reparation. He's, he's an amazing man. I think he's got the highest rated Ted talk like the longest standing ovation and Ted talk history. Visionary, man. Wow. Ted talk. Listen to as Leonsis. He's got a Ted talk blog. Teaser walking Ted. Let's start with some movies. There's a bunch of movies. We wanna talk for movies one is, and this is not for me. I understand Toy Story, four is not for me. But if you get to four you presume that one two and three did pretty some money or you wouldn't be doing four and two kids movie. Some are kids movie animated. I'm sure how is it? You know, I went in, I don't know if you've noticed every Friday this summer, we're just getting sequels is just the summer of the sequels on that always makes me feel tired and kind of defensive because a lot of them aren't very good. And especially when you get to number four, they're not very they tend to not be very good. So I went in with this to this with managed expectations, and I just thought it was fantastic. That's yeah, it's, it's, it's, you know, for those of us, I can't say, I grew up with Toy Story, but I can relate to people who up onto a story. So it's got all those the favorite characters. Tom Hanks character Woody and Bud Light year voice by Tim Allen, they're here. So it's got that whole enough Daljit factor. That's fine. But they don't just coast on that. And they actually introduce new characters one played by Tony HALE the guy from veep. Yes. Love. Wasn't actor and he doesn't terrific voice performances crazy. Very eccentric. Little character called forty a little toy made out of a sport..

Experienced technology says in Michigan revolution is in the air. Find out what planet is doing to help businesses make that possible at planet m dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E T, M dot com. To solve the scourge of the car. Maybe we have to go back back to the future from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Jack Stewart info. Molly would. The future of causes always exciting and always just around the corner. Things like self driving cars have been five years away, for I'd say about forty years now, but there are times when pure imagination is exactly what's needed when vehicles have to be as out there as possible nearly incredible. 'cause or a big part of science fiction TV shows and movies. They're often characters themselves, and someone has to make them I went to see some of the creations of writers directors and designers at a new exhibition at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles. It's called Hollywood dream machines. And there cause from Mad Max Bladerunner and the classic Star Wars amongst others. Brian Stevens is exhibition director at the museum, and he started by explaining how a car designer works with a filmmaker in the use of vehicles in Hollywood productions. There are a number of scenarios, one of, which is the need to design a car from scratch to fulfill the vision of the producers of the directors of the film, in many. Cases though. There are pre existing cars that do just that and there's no need to design a car from scratch, and when it came time to create back to the future just so happened, that this very exotic wild stainless steel bodied car existed. In fact, was very much in the public eye. Do some lawsuits at the time which which made it a perfect option for this particular use in this particular film. Doc. Are you telling me that you built a time machine? The way I see it if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it from style now that we are up close, I can see. There are a lot of wires zip ties parts that look almost unfinished. Yes. Which is deliberate in this case, the producers and directors of the film didn't want something polished, they wanted something that looked like it was handmade in a garage. So you worked with designers of some of these actually put this exhibit together. How important, did they say it is to be accurate as opposed to just be entertaining when the coming up with these visions of the future. I think it's a combination of both if you're projecting fifty years in the future. I think accuracy is, is going to be difficult to achieve, regardless of what you what you propose, but they certainly do want some level of realism when you start getting into science fiction films as opposed to Pierce to pure fantasy films. You do want there to be an element of science basis, you want there to be something that seems even somewhat. Ause -able about what you're predicting. So you have kit here, for example, from Knight rider from what the voice of industry thousands microprocessor K IT for easy reference. A can't. If you prefer, do you think that, that was fully autonomous long before most of us had heard of even the concept of self driving, 'cause it's a 'cause like that an inspiration to real engineers and real designers, I think there's no question that when today's designers were children, watching these television shows in these movies that they are even potentially subconsciously gaining inspiration from what they see. And that's probably part of why we see some of the technologies that are shown in these vehicles. Eventually become real Brian Stevens, taking us on a semi nostalgic semi futuristic, look at the cause of Hollywood at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles, fun facts. I learned from him in the early drafts of the back to the future. Script the time machine wasn't built into a cholera toll. It was built into refrigerator. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the movie. Quite as much. And now for some related links. Check out the exhibition website if you want some inspiration for movies have been Joan this holiday. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed some of them the Audi r s q concept from I robot made me want to watch that all over again. And I will be streaming the original Bladerunner as well as twenty four thousand nine to see that vision of Los Angeles with spinners in the dark and rainy skies in terms of making these sci-fi visions come true.

Let's take a look at climate change and our health one condition, specifically asthma, millions of people have it and warming temperatures could really affect how often they have a tax and how bad they are reporter Allen. You has been looking into this, hey, Allen my Mike. And so what do people say about climate change? So interestingly, when you off people with asthma, what affects them? Climate change is not top of mind. Then we'll concern with things that they can see in few right now. All kinds of trucks rolling through kick it up. All kinds of I mean, dirt dirt. But this thirty.

"I don't want people to get too focused on the number of wizard ever, but you bring up a good point. So let's go back to Brian Stevenson, Brian stain. You know, I'm, I'm urging your listeners watch Brian Stevens. He's delivery is the best delivery I've ever heard. It's very natural. Why? Because like I just talked about it's it's like he's delivering a conversation over dinner. When you're having a conversation over dinner, you're speaking in a natural rate of a rate of speech. It's kinda like you and I are talking now sort of a little bit more natural. It's not a formal PowerPoint presentation and now turning to slide twenty eight where it's very slow and plotting. I analyzed Brian Stevenson's rate of speech. It was about one hundred ninety words which may. Makes sense. Because an audio book for example, is more like about, I think it's about one hundred and twenty words, but in audio book and I've, I've read audiobooks. I've had voice instructors, voice directors in the studio with me. When I read the audio book, you're supposed to slow down a little bit. You're supposed to slow down because people are only hearing it through one channel audio, right? So it's important to kind of slow down a little bit, but you don't want to slow it down so right that people lose attention. But you also can't talk this fast. If I'm talking really fast in an audio book, you're not really gonna pay attention. You're not going to capture a lot of thoughts. So that's too fast. So one hundred ninety words a minute for just a casual immoral face to face conversation, makes complete sense that that's completely sensical just makes logical sense, which is why people like Brian Stevenson speak at about one hundred ninety words a minute. Then you get people like Tony Robbins that's more like two hundred and twenty-five words, right? So again, we're not most of us are not Tony Robbins, so I can't talk like this like Tony Robbins, early jazz fest. I if I do that in a presentation, I'm going to look like a phony because I'm trying to be somebody on not. But also it's too fast for just a public for a typical type of presentation most salespeople would have or something like that. So you gotta think about how how quickly my delivering, what's my pace? How many words per minute am I delivering? So I I don't think people should get hung up on. Okay. Now I'm gonna pay spice time myself, that type of thing and see how many words. But I do think that it's a pretty good role model start looking at people like Brian Stevenson and realize that the way most of us speak when we're pitching ourselves or delivering a presentation is very stilted and slow. And plotting compared to a much more natural in authentic rate of speech. Sure. Sherm. And you know, the verbal delivery is obviously important, but there's another thing that's important or could be distracting, which is the body language and the use, or lack of use of hand movements and gestures and things like that. And you talk about one, the power fear and why you should use the power sphere. And can you talk about the importance of that, but also easy fixes for common body language mistakes? Sure, absolutely. One of the best examples of strong body language is Colin Powell, and that doesn't surprise me Colin, how as a great military guy, right? Military leader and I find military leaders are awesome speakers. There's a viral video right now. I think of a Admiral from Texas, right? Texas, right? It's great military commanders are great connected. So Colin Powell has magnificent body language. It's what I call commanding presence.

January some of Johnson's descendants came. Here in what has become a ritual taking place at lynching sites across the. Country organized by civil rights attorney Brian Stevenson something happened here that was. Wrong something happened here that was unjust. And too few people have talked about it and so. We want to acknowledge the wrong that happened to west Johnson this is eighteen year, old west Johnson it is the only known image of him that remained he was attended farmer accused of. Assaulting a white woman before he could stand trial. A mob of one hundred men dragged him from jail shot him and left. Him hanging from a tree the blood of west Johnson is in this soil I'd like you to begin to dig this soil in. Remembrance of west Johnson the soil collection is part. Of Brian Stevens project to document and remember African-Americans links during the period of what he calls racial terror We want to call this community to repentance to acknowledgement to shame we want to tell the truth because we believe in, truth and. Reconciliation but we know that truth. Reconciliation are sequential we can't get to where we're trying to go if we. Don't tell the truth I so far Stevenson team has chronicle more than. Forty three hundred lynchings they continue to. Find more many victims like Ben Simmons and John Richards. Were accused of murder, one in four lynching victims like Joseph Richardson and Frank Embry, were accused of unlawful conduct with white women in nearly every case no evidence just an accusation was enough. There's so many crimes committed against African American why. Focus on lynching at the end of the civil war black people are supposed. To get the right to vote and the only way people who were white could maintain their political control was to intimidate black people And lynching was especially effective because it would allow the whole community to know that we did this to this person it. Was intended to send, a message. That if you try to. Vote if you try to advocate for your. Right if you insist on fair wages if you do anything, that complicates white supremacy and white dominant political power we. Will kill you anything that upsets the power structure as I want it to be that's exactly right In nineteen Ninety-three Bryan Stevenson founded, an organization he called the equal Justice initiative it's illegal advocacy group based in Montgomery Alabama focused on defending the? Poor and powerless Stevenson is best known for his legal. Victories in the United States Supreme court and for successfully overturning, the wrongful convictions of over. One hundred people on death row for ten years ago he turned the attention of his organization to also investigating crimes of the past. The lynchings of African Americans are defense attorney SIA sunny has spent hundreds, of hours searching through newspaper archives and visiting, county courthouses is there usually newspaper, evidence or documentation often there were public reports because people acted with impunity, and so there will be newspaper reports sometimes in advance saying a man will be lynched. Later this afternoon This is an, article about the lynching of a man named Jesse Washington who was accused of. A crime in Waco Texas the. Newspaper headline read burn young negro in, public square as fifteen thousand look on a mob drag Jesse Washington teenager who was convicted of murder after a one hour trial from the courtroom to the public square there's a remarkable photograph of the crowd and it's people dressed, in their Sunday with their hats on and there's clothing oil soaked his strong. To treat fire is set under him and he is, dropped into flames as fifteen thousand people look on I think it's incredibly revealing that death was not enough that? It wasn't enough to kill people people would be killed. And then shot and then set on fire and then even, after that there are cases where the body Was dragged to be heart of the black community fear of that kind of mob. Led was Johnson's relatives to bury him in this unmarked grave right. Here is where west often, is Barrett and you're right here Who is a filmmaker and west Johnson's distant cousins spent decade interviewing relatives who were alive at the time and remembered the lynching they had. A barium and heroin why because. They Lech mob they will come in they wanted. West body to take around town to drag around town to show the body off, that wasn't just west Johnson. Who was killed victimized was the entire black community everybody was feeling fear. And panic and medicine trauma the night of this lynching for the weeks and months and years after that lynching it was. A commodity crime this wasn't done by, the clan or people who had to wear masks this was done by teachers and, clergy and law enforcement officers and people you had to deal with. Every day every day Stevenson's team started their investigation in Alabama but soon uncovered accounts of mobs murdering African Americans throughout the southern states and, beyond as the case Is mounted Stevenson wanted to. Do something to commemorate the victims so, in Montgomery Alabama the heart of the, deep south which still has dozens of monuments celebrating the confederacy Stevenson's equal Justice initiative took on a. Bold project they, bought, six acres of land and started, construction on a memorial to.
