"dino robinson" Discussed on Chicago Tonight

"Of the shorefront legacy center cam howard with the national coalition of blacks for reparations in america or in cobra and community organizer sebastian knowles. Thanks to the three of you for joining us this evening. So dino robinson. Let's start with you please. You advised evanston city councils reparations subcommittee on the history of the black community there in evanston in particular about housing disparities reminded us of what that history is and explain its impact on today's black evanston eons per ever since was established about an eight hundred fifty. Five is a city or village at the time and early history. There was no sense of or a borderline. What an afro american community was Everybody knows and lived everywhere. But there was a marked. Da mark after nineteen hundred that showcase where plants were being pushed into one area of evanston took over a course of about thirty years to see the major impact of that and they use that use zoning the hope maps They came out the federal government and also jim crow policies that were not necessarily in the books but were practice part of social life so over the course of thirty years of from a wall diverse community the black not specifically was targeted in push into one area of evanston now evanston city council they passed this ordinance by vote of eight to one that one lone vote came from alderman cecily fleming. She explained to chicago tonight last week. That she is not anti reparations but she does have a specific objection to calling. This plan reparations. Here's what she said. We used to have before i was on council. First time homebuyers program year in evanston so it wasn't just for african-americans but similarly helps you a down payment in such So my issue with that under the banner of reparations is that. I don't think that that's what relations i think that's housing plan. This money will be transferred from the city. Has to bank on your behalf and i think the idea that african americans had no or will be able to have kind of really know Input on how this money is spent is kind of really my opinion contradictory to reparations. It's supposed to be kind of a tone and healing and bringing people together and it's really telling people and we've decided what's best for you. It's housing we're going to give the money to the bank and sebastian knowles. Your group opposes this reparations plan as well tell us why please so i wanna start off and say that. Our group doesn't oppose reparations. As a whole we believe that reparations of the correct thing to do here in the nation of this current program as it stands is not reparations. And i agree wholeheartedly with what altman slumming says is that these social equity programs are not Recreations the fact that twenty. Five thousand dollars going to sixteen individuals or eight families in total and they can't even come together to spend that money on they have no say in this matter. They can choose what to do with their money. They can't put it into their black businesses. They want to or save for education for their child that they're focused solely on housing. The money's going directly to the banks. Those are the some of the problems we have with the program. Now cam howard. Your organization is working towards win. It were has been working towards winning reparations for over thirty years do you believe this is the right step that evanston is taking or would cash payments better. Absolutely this is the right. Step fundamentally disagree with everything that the ottomans lemmings stated as well as the best they not have correct overview of what club. You reparations reparations really is any resources target or specifically are likely for the legacy of crimes committed during the period of flaming jim crow segregation or jim crow era and so. This is a housing initiative. That is a reparations. Your and so. There will be other compensation type initiatives around the country. Other educational reparations recreations initiatives and other healthcare reparations initiative this is housing represents initiative. And we think that it will be a model for the federal government to use when federal dollars come down. We'll be tunes to see whether or not this had no track. And how can span this particular amish. Dino robinson also help create the reparations stakeholders authority of evanston. it's a team of residents. Who will help expand reparations work. What are the goals of this group. Well this is a forming group. Were not yet formalized and this has been a lot more conversations with community members but intent on this is because we understood the limitations of the ten million dollars proposed by the city of evanston with their program their focus on housing according to the resolutions housing economic development and educational initiatives. Those are the three taps on there. But what's missing are other elements you know. People do talk about the cash payouts health and mental wellness and other issues. That are important to their from american community here in evanston so what. This attempts deals address. A four format were the committee. The harm community could has a has a say. We're reparations money's can go to through a a private fund that's held at security foundation so this leads to be can really ran. Were the sessa president of what was done with that money. Sebastian knows based on what we just heard from dino robinson and because alderman simmons has said that this is just a first step. This housing program represents a small portion of the money. Does that Resolve any of the concerns that your group has. That more is on the way d- does that help at all your concerns no it. Doesn't i've been asking this question for the past couple of months now. What is the next step. And we go in this plan and we say you know if you create a plan. Are you build a house. You don't build the kitchen. I decide to the bedroom next year or the bathroom a two years down the line. This plan was never flushed out and we don't know what the next step is. I had a conversation with alderman braithwaite a few weeks back. And i asked what are the next steps of this program and he said ultimately. It's up to the next reparations committee in the next city council to decide that we don't create a plan and marketed as reparations without having that next step in what has happened is that communities and municipalities across the nation are going to be looking at this housing program in this housing program only as a model for the nation of follow. And that's why it's so incredibly dangerous because this housing program and not work in mississippi were cannot walk work in deep south georgia. It may work here in evanston and we should call it a housing program. But it's not reparations. Dina robinson about sixteen percent of sorry. I wanted to go to camp howard there. Are you know we've just heard arguments that. This is not enough but this is being considered a potentially a model nationwide cowardly out for us. What does reparations look like elsewhere what could it look like nationwide well on a local level is going to be stop similar to incident where you're gonna have limited resources targeted to pursue particularly area in this case is housing it can be. Does this development at the next district distribution of resources but is gonna look different in every community locally because on average community has his own challenges instructed the community to prioritize. Whatever its challenges i wear wants to direct resources and the priority forty was Housing abu next initiative. Maybe something else messed up community determine but we are sure that what we're seeing in evanston can be allies around the country. One of the things that happened in evanston that doesn't happen anywhere else that evanston chose to determine a dollar now right into development of plan most other cities have a mission type of of.

"We that's known as the fifth ward. Danny glover can you talk about how you got involved with us. You're back in evanston in two thousand nine thousand nine hundred and you are speaking for this reparations. Bill you've spoken next tallahassee coats and congress for reparations how significant is this can't tell you how i mean there's no way to express how significant this is. This is part of this multi to city of expressions by local communities. I mean we talked about this on a local level. imagine how that resonates beyond evanston illinois's mitt. Imagine the kind of discourse that happens the discussions in community by ordinary citizen about reparation yes. Amazingly been cobra has played at stored near report as well. But you have surreal. Hilary beckles. caricom is studying. The whole idea of reparations. As regard to them Those tunnels carigon conscious and the colonizer that that that extracted wealth from them. So you have that on the one hand but we don't have anything on the national level. We have wicked these small examples but with has to be supported by the actions is action simply a study. H forty introduced by john conyers. Democratic socialists is to introduced by him with he came to congress every year has to be at be the most responsible thing that we can do on a federal level. These were where we will do what will happen. Is you'll have a multiplication of expressions and within that we figure out what works what doesn't work. What are the things that we need to shape and reshape about it. All these but it becomes a public discussion and that's what is happening in evanston illinois now speaking of the racial wealth gap. I wanna give you one example. The median net worth of black families in boston is just eight dollars. The median net worth of white families in boston. Two hundred fifty thousand dollars nearly thirty one thousand times as much boston's new mayor. Kim janney is the city's first black mayor. The first woman mayor has vowed to address this. But we've the send what we're seeing in evanston now danny. I'm sorry you were saying what now the wealth gap so massively different. Well of course you know. I was just thinking about what did the gains. Oh what are the best. Anti anti poverty program was a union certainly an expression of his wealth which which is which is israel other. We put our minds around that. What are the things that we do around that. Certainly repor repaired for justice of a reparation is way of correcting the ills. That had been done in the past historically been done in the past so that that is another question that we have to grapple with you know when we talk about because so much attention has given to till the to this wealth gap at but at the same time we know that there's poverty poverty among that only round black and poor whites as well so how we address the issue and talk about the wealth gap as we see what is happening to this. This system this economic system. As a result of kobe the impact it has on those who traditionally and historically been a been cut out of the system. What does it mean. Email with the whole country itself and finally robin were simmons it. It hasn't been determined The total use of the ten million dollars. You're going to be holding a series of public hearings Can you talk about what you think will happen and also have many cities around the country. Gotten in touch with you. Now thank you so so we started with a public process to get to this initial commitment of a housing remedy. And we will continue as you stated we've only identified the first four percent of our ten million to million dollar fine. I want to add that. Fund is growing by the buy. In from our stakeholder in our ally community as well as as mrs and faced houses of worship that have been contributed to the find as. Well i'm so. We will continue with a public process. Stakeholder participation in giving the reparation committee direction on what they believe remedy is for the black community evanston. of course. we'll have to do that. In line with our purview as a municipal government and in line with our local case for reparations which has been on developed by shorefront legacy center and odenal team but one thing that will continue to remain process is our national partners namely in cobra and cobra has supported our community i by participating and leading and educating our residents and we're really grateful but we will continue with the public process to determine the next nine million six hundred thousand dollars. I wanna thank you so much for being with us.

Groups are pushing for slavery reparations at a national level still with us actor an activist. Danny glover who serves on the national african american reparations commission in two thousand and thousand nine. He testified before the house in favor of reparations. He's also supported the reparations effort in evanston we're also joined by evanston city council member. Rob andrew simmons who led the reparations effort and dino robinson founder and executive director of shorefront legacy center he co authored. A report commissioned by evanston officials on city policies and practices affecting black residents from nineteen hundred to nineteen sixty and through to the present day. We're going to begin right. Now with robin ru simmons city council member. Can you talk about what you have just passed and the significance of it absolutely in. Thank you for having us. This morning. what we passed actually was in two thousand and nineteen a resolution to provide reparations to black evanston residence We passed it with funding from our cannabis sales tax with an initial commitment of two million dollars. And what we pass on. This last monday was the first disbursement or the first remedy which is going to be in the form of a housing remedy. Twenty five thousand dollar direct benefits to eligible black residents for home equity home wealth Acquisition or purchase any type of improvement. But something that will build wealth through through home equity and i have to say that in two thousand and two under the leadership of judge jean-baptiste who was who was the second ward alderman at the time our city pass a resolution in support of hr forty. So we've been working towards this or some time in evanston gets the can you explain what residents get it. What don't who johnson and what programs get it george. So our reparation eligibility is for black residents that lived in evanston between nineteen nineteen and nineteen sixty nine and their direct descendants. You can learn more about that report at our city evanston dot org. Max last reparations. It's over one hundred page report and dino can tell you more about that but that time period is significant because not only redlining but more specifically the anti-black housing policies that were enforced By the city of evanston specifically this is a evanston specific preparation policy so it was important that our case for reparation was based on policies. That were enforced my evanston. This is lois. Robinson whose family was subject to the racist practice of redlining in evanston my great grandmother who was the navistar. She probably being here since the late thirties early forties and she was a business owner and the red lining effect her and her husband because they were trying to open a business in In a well established area of evanston. When i say well established where it will be all types of nationalities that come through that area but she was forced to just stay in one certain area to the point. She had to have the restaurant in her. Home cannot deals with your self esteem and so is the thing of. Am i good enough to be able to stand on on my own and say no. I want property here. Or i want to cross the red lining so i wanna turn to dino robinson now founder and executive director of the shorefront legacy center the only community archive for black history in chicago suburban north shore. Lifelong evanston resident. Who co-authored a seventy seven page report commission by evanston officials on city policies and practices affecting black residents. Can you talk about what this means for your family. And for your community. And specifically talk about the policies that were so discriminatory that are leading to reparations dino donkey for this opportunity of when the city commission of myself my colleagues to work on this report we wanted to highlight our years of research. Our research that Showcase these Different discriminatory practices put into one document. wants the Twenty nineteen of passing the resolution happen restarted. Getting inundated with phone calls and emails are looking for information so this important document was helpful and disseminating the information that was needed to help support movement. What we saw in our report for like a series of patterns where at one time in evanston history There was no like black community. As a one area everybody looked everywhere but distinctly after nineteen hundred to see patterns where black families were forced to live in certain areas of evanston started with zoning ordinances and in for the supporting with the hope map south redlining for the supported by weighing clearance ordinances in the nineteen forties as well that greatly impacted families white families in generational bite families have lived in evanston and this report showcases that and how. This report helps in this Reparations program helps one step in helping to to remedy The pratt passed the processes that happen against the black community throughout history as far as my family's concern as the to earlier Who does this help. It is a specific segment of the population that have longtime generational impact here in evanston I myself on more or less than newcomer to evanston so In this parameter that set up right now My family does not benefit from that. But i do believe that. This program data set forth is very helpful for the generational families that have been here. Interestingly jacob blake who was shot by police officers seven times in the back and kenosha wisconsin. Isn't it true dino robinson. His grandfather jacob blake reverend jacob. Blake was seminal during the civil rights battles of the nineteen sixties and. There's a manor named for him. In there jacob blake manner. Yes absolutely he was very instrumental during the sixties Fighting against a predatory real estate agencies work toward a steering black families to one area of evanston And denying rental or home ownership in other parts of other than sendero predominantly white In our archives shorefront we have recordings from oral history. Said i've recorded over the last twenty five years families talking about experiences with racial discrimination and real estate agencies so who will not rent or less or lease holmes to families outside of the area that.

It's all one thing in life yup sliding doors man. It's all sliding doors. You just happened to be at the right place at the right time. And the fact that the Bulls Dynasty was disassembled at that point cleared the way for Phil to come to Los Angeles. You're absolutely right. We need to thank Jerry. Krause deserves more credit for helping us get Phil Jackson absolutely. Yeah that's actually if you think about it from sliding doors perspective. A huge turning point in the history of the Lakers. Yeah because if you check and Kobe people forget. They put checking Kobe together. In nineteen ninety. Six and Del Harris was the coach and he couldn't get them to the finals and the first year Phil became the coach of the team. He got him to the finals. So there you go. Thanks for the phone call man. Let's go to Mitch in torrents. Hey may cheer on. Espn seven ten. Hi Hey doing good. We're good talking since I've talked talked to both of you but my take is who you need to look at see who was a free agent at that time. It seems to me that Jerry Krause wasn't willing to find out who were the free agents. Who would be willing to join the balls at that point because that's what we do now. We look inspired out. Who the right Mitch. They wouldn't have had any they wouldn't have any money to spend on free agents. They were severely over the CAP. He would've had to come around forty. Get one super free agent. Maybe you don't think maybe don't sign somebody else you can find somebody else. Who's free agent? Who's a superstar? Then you've got the the three. Yeah that's not really bring the team back because if you bring him back if you offer contracts when you're contracts to Jordan Pippen and Kerr you don't have any money left over to pay anybody else granted but you both said that. Rodman wasn't coming back so for wasn't coming back. His money's going to somebody else. Yeah see John. I think he makes an interesting point. You could have brought back a recombination of players in other words if they really felt ranstorp mentioned specifically felt that Rodman was done. And you reconfigure that roster. Maybe maybe you don't bring her back. Maybe you're replacing them with a with a cheaper option mean Jerry Krause. Did that once rebuilt a team around Michael Jordan. It was really two separate groups aside from pippin. Who's to say? He couldn't have done that or that. The Bulls couldn't have done that a third time by going out into the free agent market and making changes to be able to create cap space. Yet if you go back and look to see who is available but and you know what I was going to say is. They only had know one year window to win it. Because the Lakers dynasty was coming and the Lakers dynasty arrive next year but if they keep Phil Jackson in Chicago maybe the Lakers dynasty never starts. So that's what makes this all fascinating. Thanks Mitch the phone call. It's GonNa Max in Sherman Oaks. Hey Max you're on seven ten. Espn high some asks. Hey Guys John Lakers fans like thank. God bless Jerry Krause. God wants by the way I really appreciate you naming that game after me a few weeks back the guests the fact game for me on good. Thanks yeah it was fun fun. You know the thing is i. I say you guys have some super producers are Michael Legend funchess man. That guy just keeps you guys run. And and Lindsey I gotta say scenes awesome. I think she's making you guys better. I'm trying to understand something because she gets into the thing you made about you know by the way Good Of the our free may say goodbye to the hour. Lindsey these guys. I love these guys but they're not too terribly concerned about precision very true very true. I think he's GonNa help me. You guys can make a compromise. You could say you gotTa Guess Right. Let's say John Him. We got bombed the hour at three forty just as the day together. There you go your other newly right Matt I was GonNa say Lindsay's Lindsay's off today but I'm sure she's listening and let's not let this go to her head okay. Hey by the way John by excuse me again and you know you said. Tiger thing was going away. I'm shocked you haven't said yet. No Nicholas Cage is being put on. I know we we actually you Mr Mr Max. We talked about that that that he's going to be part of the he's perfect he's because crazy ass. He's a crazy s guys. Don't you think going back to this question that that Spurs team with Robinson and Duncan would have taken the balls because I think this but even abroad and still there pippen was not tipping anymore? You know that back injury kind of lingered for the rest of his career and his greatest was I don't think they would have had an answer for the admiral and we'll remember. That was a one year run for that particular group Dino Robinson and Duncan that one title and then Robinson one again in two thousand and three John Right but Robinson Robinson at that point wasn't Dunkin was the best player in the two thousand three team Robinson was the best player in the ninety nine hundred and then when they want to get in two thousand seven. Tony Parker was the best player and then when they WANNA get in two thousand fourteen Kawai they just kept changing it. There is a good point. Pippen was definitely in decline although number fourteen fourteen game in in Houston the next year and then twelve game eleven game. Tanna game ten game six game when he went back to Chicago so he was not. He was not the same player after that championship. Run that he that he was Before who would have had guarding him in the post and also you got Popovich to in terms of coaching Phil Versus Popovich. You know I mean yeah bill got him. Plenty of the Lakers. But pop got us back to the spurs so I believe it or believe it or not when Phil and pop met in the playoffs. They coached in the same era when they met in the playoffs. Phil had POPs. Number fill was four and one against pop in playoff series in two thousand to pop knocked fill out but every other year when they went head to head. Phil number three right. Thanks one doesn't yeah doesn't three second round of Popovich neck. Fill out but in every other series philby POPs but it would have been fun. It's fun to kind of kick around. Max. Thank you for the phone. Appreciate a mammy guys have a good all right? See you think Lindsay makes us better by the way sure. Yeah Yeah I think more or less She doesn't make it worse. She doesn't make us worse she does. I. I've been you know how I felt. When she originally came on. I was very very concerned. I thought I think at one point. I said I think the powers-that-be are trying to torpedo. Our show sabotages the show you sabotage the show. I no longer believe Lindsay's Lindsay's Donald very good job. She hopefully will be back tomorrow but she's getting a well deserved day. Off by the way. Steve Kerr on the program tomorrow. How about that? How about that? Make sure you stay tuned for that and coming up next Marcus Spears from the getup which you and I watch on a regular basis Yoenis. That's coming up next for you. Mason and Ireland seventeen. Espn I seven ten. Espn MASON ISLA. What is going on? It's another really I guess it rained a little bit overnight. But it's beautiful now. It's perfectly clear so good day for a walk. Good day for around a golf. If you're Golfer Starting to get outside. Get around a little bit. I wore my mask all weekend long. Not so bad wearing a mask. Not So bad word. When you're golfing. Are you know? We're in the common areas where when you're around the clubhouse and on the first tee and then once you get out on the court you can take it off. Yeah stopping at gas. You wear the mask. Finally everybody add a note. Negative Cova so I got to hang out with Stepdad Leo. How long do you think that lasts that? We wear mass as a general rule. Poi- I don't know I mean at this point I don't know I mean I. I'm surprised that it's moving as fast as it is because we seem to be pulling out of this at a faster pace than I originally thought. I don't know how long we wear masks. I mean do we get another surge of this stuff at some point in the fall? I'm not sure. Do we wear if we do. We go to a movie theater. I don't know if I would feel comfortable going to a movie theater right now. Even a socially distance movie theater. You're sitting in the dark with a bunch of strangers. You hear a cough and you're like Oh God am i. Am I in some sort of horror? Movie right also depends like we hear from all sorts of people like through social media and some people are are extremist on either side on both sides. Yeah there's a couple of people to tweet US say this is the end of the world. You guys are suggesting murder. We can't have sports and then there's on the other side of it. It's why do I ever have to wear a mask? It doesn't mean you censor me Baba Blah. The truth lies somewhere in the middle well in the end. John I think personally I think everybody is GONNA wind up being responsible for their own health? Because there's what you're allowed to do and what you're willing to do right. There's two different things I'm allowed to go to a movie theater but I am. I willing to go to a movie theater. Am I willing to go outside without a mask right in the end? It's going to discuss your your own. Personal feeling is going to be the thing that determines it like right now. You like. You say you'd go to a restaurant if one open right now I would would have to wear a mask and the restaurant until I mean I would take it off to eat but when taken off inside I'm guessing you probably would for a while. Yeah Yeah and you're and yet your wife Lisa would not yeah. I'd probably not going any restaurants anytime soon. Because she's out she's like you. She's on she's she wants to. She's conservative in that regard. She doesn't want to push it. Yeah and I think in the end everybody is going to be responsible for their own health. Like I told my mom I would just be so pissed off if she went out and started shopping. And all that stuff right now. Because she's in that dangerous age and you know. I think especially people that age of gotTa be careful no matter what because it hasn't completely gone away But you're right John. There are people on both sides. Who who are extreme positions and they're really really dug in. I find myself somewhere in the middle like. I don't find it impossible that in four months when the NFL season opens that. I might be at FI stadium now at four months away. August September four months away. I think if you are you will be spread out like you and one will be able to sit in your seats. And then there won't be anybody they'll be three or four empty seats before you see someone else. That's how they're going to do it right. And you and you won't be able to go to every game necessarily like your game. You'll they'll pick three or four games that you can go to and then three or four games that the people who own the seats next you can go to divide it up that way right speaking of football if you watch the get up and Mason and I watch it all day every single day you know one of the stars. Is Marcus Spears? Who is nice enough to join us now. Marcus how are you man? How are you holding up? We'll talk guys doing well. Man actually finishing up my day on TV. And now I gotTa take my house because they are absolutely losing their mind right now. Marcus I want to start in a strange place when you're when you were rookie in Dallas and correct me in correct me if I'm wrong..

"Bellsa fifteen ninety WC. Evanston, chicago. I love this song, man. Thank you. Chip Ratliff can't see us. Come see chick Ratliff. Really come. See you. Although they might become come up. We're we're state fillers. We're we're just kinda we're just kind of filling in. For the annoyance candy and carries the spring. The become see us with chip Ratliff from the dirty blue crew. Also, our buddy the very funny and special guest comedian Mark James heath this afternoon at four o'clock at the Skokie theater downtown Skokie doors open at four o'clock, and it goes for. Universal sound for free for free. Free music. You get. You get the you get the beautiful carries gonna juggle. Okay. Juggle. We don't know what she's gonna Doug. She can juggle anything because she's just that great. Time. That's the beautiful voices. Chip Ratliff here with an all new practice. Your purpose in our. Robinson? Yeah. Dino, Dino, listen, I'm just gonna tell the audience. I'm gonna ask this last question 'cause I actually got to run out of here and get to the theater or you won't see chip Rattlers. And you are doing a great show, by the way. I am. But Dino, listen what obstacle heavy I want people. What do you think just named one over come one or the? What I thought about the question. I'm like, I know Dino's come over a billion of these but lawn that you would say, you know, even maybe as a startup someone starting up, something what are some of what you're gonna do what you need to do to keep going or is it just keep going. I mean, you know, the biggest obstacle. I think we have a continued struggle is by liberty in your community. So how do you gain that trust that you're actually doing this for the right thing and now for their self worth or for selfish reasons? So for a long time for years, you know, people like who are you? Why are you doing this? What do you know about the history? Why should we trust you? So those are big things is you're asking people to give their time. We asked him give their history and ask him for the money. All those things was something that may or may not see how do you do that? So that was the biggest obstacle was one of the bigger things. Like, why do I wanna do this? And should I do this? You know, how many people I need to get involved in this whole picture. So it becomes not a me thing. But we think so I think I learned that earlier that I need to take what I am doing and figure out a way of showing that this is what the community wants to do. And the only way to do this with community members that are already engaged in that had that respect and have that trust in the community to help further along caused a you vision. So that was a big part? And that's still a constant battle. I've been living in Evanston now for over thirty thirty four thirty five years sometimes still treated as oh, you're just a newcomer aid. What's going on here? That is a big a big hurdle. Maybe the second. Big hurdle is about the financials. Where do we get this many times? No. Call side chair fundraisers. All you have to do is event and raise money time effort and money. Russell russell. Lot of or just or just you just write a grant. If it was that easy. Everybody running a nonprofit writing grants to get a million dollars to do this the grants actually and small, and I every granting entity says the majority of the money that goes to support community organizations comes from directly from the community here. Right. The federal grants the state grants private foundations. Those are Louis about twenty percent is individuals. Without individual support. We can't write those big grants because we're asking worship community support. Right. So it goes hand in hand. So if I could raise two thousand dollars in the community, the grand ACA right to twenty two thousand dollars to match that. Oh, okay. So that's how I see. It's a show this capacity. They can do all these things bring us in generating this revenue. So they can write a bigger grant. I would love to write a million dollar grant. They'll be helpful if have community support broad community support in a consistent way. The we could raise fifty thousand one hundred thousand hey, we have a director we could do this. We have a staff we can do all these things can generate this type of revenue this type of impacting community federal grassy say here's your check. We still have to be accountable for that. Because he's France only short-term report over and over again on a yearly basis. Britishness of a one time thing in haywar in constantly reporting. And just finished doing several reports for some photographs and reporting got like three simple questions was generous about thirty pages of paperwork. So that's tap. That goes behind the scene was not just writing a grant. No developing relationships with granting entities and the community the show the value in the basement of making sure front, right? And the thing about it is and what I'm hearing. What you hear you saying ultimately do know is that you have to have the dedication. And you have to know it's almost like you have to know, despite the pain, you're going to get back up and do this again in the morning, right? I always tell people how did I know look playing basis because spite the blood blisters and pain in my hand, I kept picking up the bass in kept playing. It's the same thing. I mean with everything you said answer guarantee people out there doing that. Had to do all that to do whatever. No. I'm not doing that. Well, then maybe that's not your purpose. That's not the direction you're supposed to be going into what I wanted to illustrate here all the things that Dino's just talking about. It's because of his dedication is because he knew this was his purpose. It wasn't about him. Gasping. There was a high. Do the history. Sunday. How? But that's what that's what I wanted to bring up and point out that, you know, this is about dedication and might just trying to Pat myself on and say come out to my show. That's what practice your purpose is about. It's not about you know, it's not about money. I mean, why should? It's not about money. Wait. Wait. Wait what? Bill this kid, bro. Yeah. Yeah. It don't make no money. But you know, it's it's your your wife, and my wife, we're gonna talk man. It's a it's it's like I say, it's a higher causes something for the community. Like, guess it from what I went through the my health. I know that people need inspiration to do what you put on earth to do. So you're not at fifty sixty miserable. Talking about hate what I do. I hate my life. Well, no, don't hate your life. Take control over to do what you're saying. Something do something with it. Happy and do something do something with with that. I got to go, and you guys have. We will see what the Skokie feeder Skokie theater guys, four o'clock free show, everybody in music. Many there. Yes, sir. Ask for well. I think Kerry's enough, but. The rest of the time. It's a block of time. All right practices, purpose everyone. I will see you later. All right and just to let people know where we're talking with Dino Robinson, founder of shorefront, which which chronicles the the African American experience in the north shore year, correct? What what what sort of programs? Do you have coming up in the coming month? We have our Blackley back. Rewind that. I'm black. And I and I, and I've I've got a heritage in this in this part of the country or I'm from here. And I've got I've got an understanding. I've got I've got a story about my heritage. Are you do you want those stories are you soliciting those stories are you accepting those stories chore front is a community organization. That means we depend on the community to bring their stories to us. We don't know the history. Right. None of us know entire history. We know segments of it. We just Tennessee traveling timeline. So instead of like, you know, going back to zero in working way of doing this entire time line as a community. We're looking at this person who could remember as far back as they can right from their point of view point of view, the first person to do XYZ who is this person. A but they don't remember that. There was a person d e f g before that time. So what we do purposely do is find is those evidence of bad existing find the paperwork with that in developing archive for it. So they when we start finding these things we don't want to sit in boxes. Collected say look what I found is based on his bats and make a finding aid about it. Right and put on the shelf near it is done. Dies on the shelf. So how do you make that dots of information live on? So we want people to engage for people say, hey, this is about social club. A your man was involved in mom. So here she is this this interview her tell her story this bring it out here. Nelson exhibit about this. But you are looking for those old roller. Photographs things that help build that larger narratives exactly so so many plays. Can we were working without? We started talking with those one play up there right now to do a historic twenty twenty. It's just no idea concept right now, but we have the resources to build something like that. I thought about doing like a dot com movie like like roots multi series, going home. The black community and has growth in Evanston, Illinois because it was really interesting storyline. Let me think about it. State of Illinois almost became a slave state. So and how black community developing state of Illinois. He had over one thousand sundown towns, we're not allowed in. No-show had downtown's. So how does this Illinois? Quite a lot of sundown towns. Yeah. So all these stories in having these things here, you won't be the things out to the public and also engage with other organizations, I'm going to do the same thing. So we have things like this coming month. We have a series of four lectures at the Levy center every Saturday February from two to five the first one is one of our production show from predation says the screening of Lori Morgan a life worthwhile adopting route from the beautiful talked about that he's done. And it was so great to know that this morning was there to see the opening of that film, and the talked about it and bring family members there to see it. So this'll be found again. I mean, again, we have a history of John John up these.

It's one of those things I sometimes equated like tripping on the crack in the sidewalk and said, oh, look at this side walk. So this was something that I didn't plan at the beginning OSHA small self interest. Like, oh, wait, there's a history here. And nobody knows about it. So I decided to educate myself, and what to local museums and libraries and say, hey. Essentially, oh, well, we don't have much here. But we know they're here. But we don't have anything about that. When I went to a local struggle society and said, well what she got about African experience. Oh, great. We have some folders here, and we can show you a hundred labeled colored this is like ninety five. You know, what this is not cool. Needs to be done about. I just started to indicating with the community lobby people. I knew what I was trying to do. Learn more by history. And it makes it introduced me to other people.
