"Shall my name is Charlotte Bronte jump filling in for Chan up that dahling Glenn? She's an award winning columnist. I want to leave that out with the Chicago Tribune. Thank you so much for being on the show this afternoon and giving us some time on your Friday. You know, we were talking before the break about your column and about the Adidas HR chief stepping down because of a lack of diversity at the sneaker giant that benefits from billions of black dollars every year. And, you know, one thing that always got me was that you know, I'd apply for a job or a promotion. And you know that I've got all the boxes checked, but, you know, somehow I didn't qualify. But you know, my white female counterpart of my white male counterpart would not have all the qualifications admit Yet they be given a chance. You know, I don't know how many times I've been in the room or read an email. And they said, you know, he doesn't have the degree doesn't have the experience, but we believe in him, and I'm like, dude, I'm sitting right here with the degree and the experience. How can you not believe in me? What? I've put sweat equity into this station? It's the old black tax write where you know you have to work harder. It's one of the things we learn as African Americans. Early on our parents, teachers that because the way America is set up those with privilege Are the ones who read the benefit much more really easily than we do. And so we go in with that understanding. And we do the work and we do what we have to do. But there's only so far we could go. You know, you're right. I mean, at some point, it's going to be incumbent upon them to make make the next step. And that's where diversity play the role in companies that are committed to diversity. Then, um, you know they seek out Ah, talented minority and they give them opportunities to compete in the workplace and when opportunities for promotion. Alive. They give them opportunities to compete for those promotion. Nobody's asking for handouts. Nobody's saying give up this Give us you know, Give us that we're saying allow us to compete. For the position using the same criteria that everyone else competes with. And we can do it. One of the things I talk about in my column, If how doing the construction? You were talking about a period? Shortly after slavery where the majority of black people were educated, because, as you know they could slaves could even they weren't you know it was against a lot of them. They will be beaten if they learn to read And so on and doing reconstruction that was one of the most prosperous times for African American in the United States. Black were holding high elected offices that were business people everywhere. And when the white people got out of that What did they do? They came back with Jim Crow Law. That don't hit that growth and put African Americans back where they felt like they belonged to settle. It's not a question of whether we can do it. The question is whether we have the opportunity to do it. Do you think our Children I wanted? You know, every time I tell my son, you know, just do your best and you'll be rewarded. Girl Got it. Swallow. Cause I'm talking down the troupe of my own experience. That is not the America we live in right now. But you know if we want to look for a bright spot in everything that's going on now At least we're talking about these things. And when have we ever really had these kinds of Dale? Never. What And so you can't even began to solve problems until you're willing to acknowledge that you have a problem. And then talk about how you convince me those problems and that's why he's being at the nation right now, and that's a good thing. I don't know what's gonna happen down the road. But I can't say that in my lifetime. I have not seen this much interest and even acknowledging that we have a problem in this country. So I'm gonna I'm gonna take that. For what? We'll take what we can give her right now. Right now, Right, Dolly! Thank you so much for being on wciu radio for hanging out with me on the chat.

"It's a little bigger than a matchbox but definitely smaller than a playing card. A miniature booklet entitled the Young Men's magazine written by a woman who usually wrote much bigger books the young Charlotte Bronte now. That tiny treasure has just fetched almost eight hundred eighty thousand dollars Canadian at auction in Paris. That's going home to England. Thanks to years of effort by the Bronte Society. Rebecca York is with the Bronte Society. We reached her at the Parsonage Museum. Charlotte Bronte's former family home in allworthy England. Rebecca why did the brunt society want to get its hands on this little book so badly. Oh well a number of reasons really You know the society has one of the largest collections of bunch midtable in the world and the little books awesome and most iconic things in that collection. And so in this particular series of the magazine of that shot created. There were six books digitally and we know that because the number dated and the museum already had four one of them was in a collection called the law collection and the entire collection disappeared in the nineteen thirties. Nobody nobody knows where that is. And then there's this this last one that came up for auction yesterday it also came to auction in two thousand eleven and the Budgetbattey went to auction that time and were outbid And it was devastating thing so this was a second chance to bring it home to Howarth complete the collection on sort of finish that that story really and you had support into because you you didn't exe- this disappear for a second time and not get it so you had some pretty high powered people people trying to help you get the the pull of. Yeah that's right. And of course we have an Judi densch as our president and she very kindly decided yes she would agree agree to named this campaign and the Known in love the world out of a and from our twitter feed alone. We know that our high profile people that looked Bronte's Dante's and so we were very fortunate and able to harness some of that support and love. We'd be overwhelmed by members of the public from all over the world either remembering a visit to the museum remembering to Howarth but also just remembering reading Jana for the first time. This little book was written by Charlotte Bronte and. She was of course best known for Jane Eyre but she wrote this created this little. This little book is the magazine when she was fourteen eighteen. That right that's right. She was fourteen So the children. The children encouraged to Read very widely and they were given access astute writers like Byron and they also an family subscribed to periodical magazines. And so the Bronte's created to these tiny little magazines which facsimiles of things that they've seen so this particular a series of content page it says edited by Charlotte Bronte. Hey and Adverts in short stories so it is a radio early an indication that Charlotte wanted to be a writer she wanted to be published. I there's the perfect mate magazines. All of it is you're describing a magazine but we're talking very tiny here aren't we. I know. Well that's that's because Mister Bronte or the children of some toy soldiers and the children created an imaginary world that a habit it by these soldiers near the soldiers names. UNFO- these magazines created to be of the size for those soldiers to read and hence the not the term young men's magazines. Those young men were those soldiers and also because of those Byron influenced tokes out the Sometime contents intents were bit racy as you might say and so they all cemented by making them that size too small Faux Mr Bronte thereto. Well they and their their actual stories. It's not just that they're they're made to look like when you're making things for for for in a doll's Dell's house or for for children has to appear to be something. These are actually written as if this one. There's a handwritten story or stories in these books. Right that's right. That's and that's what makes it really exciting these proper stories in minuscule handwriting. You know you need a magnifying glass. Even struggle and this particular Killa books that we acquired yesterday has four thousand words in it and in particular one of the stories is about a merger who is haunted by his victims. This is seen as described as having a fire in his head that sued burning so bright violent feeling in his head he sets his bed cuts and some fire. Now anyone who's ever read. JANA will recognize that as a nose being Of Mr Chester's bed curtains under under the bed funding state in China so again really early indication. That's an Charlotte's themes that she was trying and planning with as a young teenager with things that stayed with her and then she made them tug memorial work but she was writing these byronesque stories. He's racy stories when she was fourteen. Mr Bronte is he was just very forward thinking logical in the material he let his children read. They obviously were brought up and to some extent by the servants and the housekeeper who would have told them not bits of gossip from the village. So yes I think that's what's extraordinary and the fourteen year old. They wouldn't have been expected to be writing about an adulterous dalliances illegitimate children but some meditate. Well well obviously there are people around the world as you point out. Who would love to be able to see this little book and all the Little Book? So where will they be able to do that. So so the museum is hoping to receive instable decide of Christmas as a missing documentation and small matter of paying to take place first and then. The museum closes every January full maintenance and conservation and cleaning and the new book beyond display when we reopened. I put in February. It hasn't been transcribed fully or any of the works inside it published as of dispension so up see the access as well for scholars and researchers who probably wanting to stop looking at but the museum and always have con- display as I said that most iconic items in the collection loved by visitors absolutely just lovely Rebecca.

And I like, you know, what book I read every winter if you don't know. Wow. I'm actually going to look out here because this friendship is okay. This week. No, you gotta tell me what book I read ever winter every time this is period. Wow. No. Sways persuasion. If you say, it ain't it'll be book. I read every winter is. Jana Charlotte Bronte. Awful not book that one and obviously comes up every time because I actually like always and I'm looking forward to reading I'm going to read this on the twenty first Friday, the twenty December I asked I starting, and it's basically it's a novel by the English writer, Charlotte. Bronte published under the pen name. Correct. Bell on the sixteenth of October not eighteen forty seven. And it's a book about this young woman could Jane Eyre, and it kind of involves her growth into this adult adult life and her love for a man could miss the Rochester, the brooding master of thorn filled hole. And if I think it's like a phenomenal book because it kind of as the page says it revolutionized phrase fiction in my it focused on sort of Jane's, moral and spiritual development, and it's very slow book. It's a book doesn't have like action packed movements. By just I say say. How do I say it say? It's thought source of marrow. Ing it's the you know when you dig and you dig into someone's thoughts allow all the time actually just in Jane's head asked. Why love about too, and it's so nice because it's the pain. I remember reading it when I was young clouds light. It's just the pain young woman. She's not beautiful. She's not out of this welts smart. She's no. Interesting in a way that makes us stand out as a protagonist. She's just a young woman even her life, and she suffers misfortune and she encounters love, and I remember the way that she realizes. I think I love about Charlotte and the way that she writes is that she. She catches Diallo can almost the way that USC wild does in its it sometimes sarcastic. But it's it's always filled with something deeper in that she says something or Rochester something, but there is another underlying meaning to it that the Rita has to discover and the way that. That she writes the love stories at one day that BIC almost like paying and they're playing this tap tactful game in not they wanna tell the passan how they feel the conquest Talat, and it builds up any bills bills bills to the point that you can't hold it anymore. And it's just like oh my God. And and then Rochester says something along the lines of like you on my equal something. That's something that you really like. Yeah. If I this buildup of tension stood up attention, and it almost mirrors my life, actually. And it's just like it's just like you with somebody. And you want to tell them how you feel and these these little passing moments that Charlotte and Austin actually captured so grace fee as what I love about nineteenth century. Vermont's is that it's not like. Yeah. Li- oversee gang, gang hipster. I mean, it's just like communication is dialogue, and it's a build up, and you get to another scene, and it builds something more and build something more than you have this climactic scene where it's like all of these things have built up to. And this is what Jana has because it's like playing playing playing playing hoop something something something something something and then bang..

"We are even a misogynistic world, right? It's it doesn't just because you're a woman who directs a movie or just because you're a woman who writes a movie doesn't mean it's feminine, right? You have to twist yourself, fit yourself all your life. Like like Virginia Woolf in room of one's own. Has this whole thing about how like even even Charlotte Bronte? She said, she's not really making purely feminine work because she's like hiding her paper under her sewing or whatever.

You know about the deuce actually it wasn't about the kindergarten teacher, but he'd seen the preview for the kindergarten teacher and he was like, I saw the previews that is it a thriller or is it like an intimate movie about a woman's mind, or is it like a horror movie? And I, I loved that and I keep coming back to it because I think it's not any of those. It's new and I think it might be new because it's feminine. It doesn't tick.

"charlotte bronte" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"What a shrewd. What a heinous bid. So the rest of that scene in the classroom. So then a cat says, I guess in this society being male in an asshole makes you were the of our time. What about Sylvia Plath or Charlotte Bronte or Simone, Dubov wa, and Patrick. Our friend heath ledger bursts into the classroom and says, what did I miss and catch like? The oppressive patriot values that dictator education. It's like, okay, and he's good. And then he leaves. Again, I love that joke. He's like all caught up. Thanks. Mr. Morgan gives this monologue where he's like, oh, you're a white girl who's like rich and entitled, maybe like next time you go to PTA meeting. You could ask them why they don't buy any books written by a black man like so this whole scene, it has it all. But the thing hot. Leger enters and exit and then five. Just threw him in which the second people are going to get tired. Also. There's like there's a comment on like feminism and the patriarchy and misogyny. There's comment on race. This whole scene basically establishes how much of like buzzkill cat is because she has like strong opinions and speaks out against the patriarchy. But I do like that it's she's also kind of like put in her place of being like a privilege white girl by her teacher because it's like at the end of the day, like both of Bianca and Kat Julius styles that are both fucking rich and like a lot of the reason they can even win Julia stiles character like rebels against the patriarchy. She does it in like kind of privilege ways like hitting Joey car. It's like, okay, that's cool. And that's like putting a shady dude in his place. But also you wouldn't do that if you didn't know your dad was going to pay for the damages, right? Can't just then you have to physically hit his car, which. This. To find, you know, car to poor actually hits your car with my car because you're going to have a car. So she thinks fight your. Which. I would love to see Julius. Dr. So that's kind of the setup of her character and how like everyone else, fuse her in the whole idea, the movies, similar to what it sounds like the taming of the shrew is that like she needs to be softened up like she's too bitchy like no one likes or so we need heath ledger to come along, and you know, show her how to be nicer used to be tricked by which also such a fucking guy fantasy that like you can pay a guy. This is more realistic for women you. I feel you could probably more realistically pay a woman to seduce a man. Then you could pay a guy to seduce a woman live at abbey then on. Really off. You tricked me. Out of here which magical dick. Like a men love that notion that they think they think it's real, that they could trickle woman into falling love. It's like, that's what we do. Y'all every fucking day we're talking about this culture, trophy wife, you know, you'll big ugly as wouldn't be with that fine. Ask any woman. If you handled damn money, she gone to you. There's yes and like good for her. Great for her. I'm just tired of like, I mean, I guess some gigolos some. There are some men out here who probably could like slang it around and there's a whole industry pickup artists. Oh yeah, that works great. Doesn't it? They're always home ugly. I have a horrifying confession to make. Are you a pickup artist, Jimmy? I've been negative. You know, I slept with someone who had I woke up and I was like, oh my God, there's I'm, I'm literally next to a copy of the the game with golden boss peach. It was a really made copy of the game. It was an anniversary edition of the game to do steal it and burn it. No, I slipped out and haven't been heard from sin, but it was what God pick up, bad bed, bad bad. Well, so cat, the other thing about her is that because she's like a feminist, she's also like painted as this like frigid woman who would never want a day like asthma in the Sar. Why are there so many movies where it's a teen boy tricking a teen girl, and then he's the love interest..
