"That my guest today and i had we talk a lot about freedom. We talk about self love self worth and she spoke. She's going to speak or she spoke at our happened. But you'll hear that. She speaks a lot about limits. Right and When you're not up to. I don't know why i want to say the word optimal so much as i'm recording this and i don't even know why because i don't really know if i use that word on a regular basis i can't remember but either way when you are not operating a space of self love or self worth on a regular basis or you know it's not a part of your everyday life or something. You're striving for striving for freedom. She mentions limited or the you put limits on how you love yourself and how you feel about yourself and getting to freedom and it made me think of one of my favorite songs ever. The song is by an artist named feis. Feist is a white lady. I don't really know much about her. She might be australian or canadian or something like that. I don't know she might be from america. I don't know either way she has. I was really into her music in the two thousands she you know she saying she sings song. That goes one two three four two minutes them and it was all over all the commercials. I think apple had commercial with the song in it but she has a song called the limit to your love which is one of my favorite songs by her so that is my jam for the day. Have a listen and also remember like. I'm not about to sing it or anything. I'm just gonna read the lyrics and hopefully it will peak you pique your interest in the song and you will go listen to it in the show notes. I have placed a link to the song on youtube. So there's no reason why every episode. I put a link to the song that is the jam of the day or of the episode in on youtube. So there's no reason why he can't go check song anyway. The song is entitled the limit to your love and this is just an excerpt is not the beginning or the end or the middle. So i think it is the beginning. Now there's a limit to your love like a waterfall in slow motion like a map with no ocean. There's a limit to your love. Your love your love your love. There's a limit to your care so carelessly there is a truth or dare. There's a limit to your care. I love i love. I love this dream of going upstream. I love i love. I love the trouble that you give me. I know. I know. I know that only i can save me. I'll go i'll go. I'll go right down the road. This is such a perfect. You know. I gotta give to myself as my guests and i were speaking and she kept saying limit ended up here in the song in my head right and so i said this will be the jam for this episode when i went to get. You know a snippet or clip of lyrics. I just you know gathered. Some i didn't like you know do a lot of thinking but look how god works that. That's what i got is so amazing. The part of the concept of thinking this about when. I think about this when i think about loving myself. When i used to listen to the song i used to think about a stupid man who will remain nameless. Who lives in the state of new york. This was a long time ago but no this. Now i'm thinking about eight from the perspective of me loving me. I love this dream of going up string stream. I love the trouble that you give me. I know that only. I can save me come on now. Let's go in. let's just let's just move on anyway. Check the song out. It's really really good. I love her music.

Also so i did see like a snippet of his life That was either the same day you went live and talked about this or the next day. I think it was the next day. I think it was an extra in it.

You're on your phone in your look connecticut talking about you got them.

"ebony" Discussed on Black History Year
"On freedom day. A heavy question still looms. How do we celebrate our freedom when freedom still isn't in our reach and while there's much to be joyous about on freedom day a heavy question simultaneously looms. How do we celebrate our freedom when freedom still isn't within our reach coming up a conversation with ebony underwood social entrepreneur and founder of. We got us now. Which is an organization built by led by end about children and young adults impacted by parental incarceration should give us a firsthand account of her experiences with the car system. A generation of black youth the being impacted by and explored connection to june team. But first let's get into the history of black independence day june nineteen eighteen sixty five galveston texas. It was a city. Bremen with confederate soldiers. Many retreating to the idyllic state of texas seemingly on such by the union's promises freedom here in galveston. The old self lived on black. People here still ploughed land and picked cotton for the white masters. They still had no legal right to sovereignty. They still were not free or at least. That's what they thought these. Enslaved people had unknowingly been free foreign entire two and a half years. You see amid the civil war. President lincoln enacted his eighteen sixty three the mets a patient proclamation the clearing all enslaved people legally and while this declaration was more symbolic than true. Since the policy didn't apply to those enslaved in union states. the emancipation proclamation remained significant for the following reason. It was the first time the federal government had acknowledged that the freedom of black people was essential to america's progress and success so on that june nineteenth day union soldiers descended upon galveston with their message of liberty from here celebrations erupted in the black communities. Finally able to call themselves. Three minute freed women. The former enslaved rejoiced on what would soon be known as june reveling in the promise of liberation. For about fifteen years. It seemed like we had a real shot at some consider. The reconstruction period that followed to be a golden era for our ancestors amendments to the constitution saw black people granted freedom the right to vote and for citizenship black elected officials popped up throughout the nation communities were built for us by us and they were derived because of this progress though was soon then erupted by surge of racial terrorism by eighteen. Seventy eight disgruntled whites had weaponized the law against our people using it to strip crucial rights violently from the hands of blacks for decades to come. Today we still see evidence of this continued weaponization. Look at police brutality housing discrimination and to a new form of slavery that holds people in bondage to this day. Mass incarceration in while the carswell state has significantly targeted and pressed the black community. We must not forget the promise of freedom embedded in june. Because when we celebrate this day we're not just commemorating that taste of freedom from all those years ago we're also celebrating our ongoing struggle for liberation in its fullest possibility ebony. What does black liberation look like to you. Freedom black liberation looks like freedom and what freedom means to me is economic stability in means housing opportunities. It means educational opportunities it means health and wellness lack liberation to me all those things i can dive in deep leagues in to each of those but if i just blanket that statement for me it means things and having the freedom and the ability to have the best of all those things and how does the work that you do work towards that vision of black liberation well founded it a nonprofit but we got us now dot org. It's a national nonprofit nonpartisan organization built by led by and about children and young adults who have been impacted by rental incarceration And the reason why i founded is because i was a daughter of apparent that had been incarcerated for thirty three years. My father was released. This january twenty twenty one after serving thirty three years in prison and for the majority of that time that he was incarcerated. I had never spoken publicly about him being incarcerated mainly because of the trauma because of the stigma because of the shame of incarceration. Not knowing that there was this thing called incarceration until dump seven years ago and not knowing that people were actually empathetic to the issue. There were no support systems for my family got arrested. There was nothing and to me. Bad just was heartbreaking. Especially because i found out that people were empathetic to this issue and then i realized wow when people look to the military. They censored the children when people are divorced. They sent to the children when there's in-depth apparent. They censored the children when a parent is incarcerated one through the children. Nothing there is no support systems and so the work that i do was intended in a really stressful kiss way to acknowledge uplift and support the daughters and sons that had been impacted by parental incarceration. Because they did nothing wrong and we were feeling the collateral consequences of mass incarceration on a really deep level. And i felt like an order from us truly liberated. We needed to see us. We needed to hear from us. We need to know that you are not doing as there's been many miss and negative narratives about who we are and where we will be and what we will become that that is not true and that we are not destined. There's no criminal genyk gene where we're destined for prison and we're driving and i wanted to show them and so how i did that. Was we got us now. What we do is we have four guiding principles that we worked from. We engage educate. Elevate an empower our historic historically invisible population so that we can build community number one because we're historically visible community. There are two point. Seven million children under the age of eighteen currently have a parent incarcerated but the epidemic is that over ten million children at some point in their life and then impacted by. Parental incarceration is incredible those stats and that raises a clear question. My mind is like why is that not being discussed. Why's that not being sinners. You mentioned that they've been doing this to our families since forever separating..

From the UK, a Glimpse of Canadas Future
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story ebony. Renee baker is a freelance canadian journalist. Living luckily for her she in london. England ebony rene joined in how you doing. I'm doing okay. But i bet given the news. I'm seeing coming out of london that you were doing better. Yeah i constantly. I'm feeling a bit ask. What's the word guilty. When i talked to my canadian friends and family because we definitely somehow at the beginning of the pandemic we were not in the best place but somehow we have ended up where we are actually going out and kind of enjoying life right now. So it's been good. Well that's what we're talking to you about today. Because i feel like we're about six weeks or so behind you so the real thing that i i wanna know is just. What's the first thing that you did upon a lockdown lifting. I mean the thing is. It's been such a and it's been the same in canada as well. Such a staggered approach to lockdown lifting don. I'm kind of like when did things open again. Like it was kind of like one role in lockdown. But i guess as of march things started to reopen slowly but surely honestly. I think the first thing i did was. Walk around to find a walk-in stay said an outdoor patio and find a spot. I wasn't really like i wasn't too optimistic. I wasn't booking tables because a lot of people were doing that ahead of the announcement that was meant to be made last month. So i wasn't optimistic and then i kind of credit so the first day things open so that was april twelfth. I found myself and my roommate just walking to find anywhere that would serve me alcohol much more expensive price that i have been drinking at home so i think that was definitely the first thing upon actually finding a place it was just like. Wow have not done this for like what. Maybe six months may be more.
What Separates Humans From Other Animals?
"Animals. I mean my dog has a 401k. Also why do we pace. When we're stressed or anxious like in the bugs bunny cartoons. Somebody's waiting outside the delivery for so andrew came across a paper in the journal. Frontiers in psychology which. I was so charmed by that. You've read as we can talk about it. It's called acquisition of a joystick operated video task by pigs. How could i forget for the listener. I'll just explain. These experiments were carried out at penn state university. There were four pigs. A pair of yorkshire pigs named hamlet an omelette and a pair of panna pinto micro pigs named ebony and ivory. I guess after stevie wonder and paul mccartney or the song of that name or after piano keys and the paper describes what the pigs were and were not able to learn in these experiments manipulating video game joystick with their snouts. And what i really want to know is tell us how it changes your thinking as a psychologist if it all about non human animals their capabilities. The way we should think about them perhaps differently about ourselves differently. Well thank you for broadening. My academic horizons. I would not have read this paper on video games and makes were it not for our friendship so i i will just say that when i read this line i literally laughed out loud after twelve weeks of training. Hamlet and omelette were terminated from the experiment because they had grown too large no fit within the constraints of the test pen. Academic research is tough. You lose fifty percent of your research pool just like that so anyway now down to two test subjects by the way. So one of my intuitions is that one ought not an. I understand that this research is hard. But maybe not generalize to olive pig them based on this very small number of pigs because look at wilbur wright some pig yeah so maybe ebony or ivory were some one of them was much better than the other in the research so there's various across pigs even yes. It is
Who Will Pick Kyle Pitts in Thursday's NFL Draft?
"All right. Let's have fun here with. Kyle pits blank will select kyle pits right. I think it's the falcons. I mean friscos. Been talking about this for some time. He doesn't think that the falcons are gonna take a quarterback he thinks arthur blank is all in on on matt ryan for another year to have a new coach and the new general manager. And here's the thing like if you trade down four. And i suspect it'll be teams interested in trading up to four to get whether it's trae lance macaroni justin fields. If you're the falcons if you move down if you move down you're not getting cockpits. That's just the end the conversation because either the bengals. The dolphins entertainment five or six and presumably. You're not trading with those teams already have quarterbacks. So that's the math you're doing and if you're not getting likely to march as we saw a report on monday for peter king that maybe julio jones could be moved with which seems crazy what they need a cap space Could you turn down for. Cornerback if the falcons you could but again what gives you more value in terms of making that football team better. I think it's how pet. So if i'm the falcons and i'm not taking justin feels matteo's trae lands i'm sampling. Taking cup pits. Janssen the blank blank. We'll take pets. I think it's it's atlanta. But i also be surprised if the team traded up with the falcons maybe even take pits like ryan saying you know the train up to the quarterback but you know teams fall in love your dallas. You know thousand the four but you know if a team really loves him that much and it's hard not to love that much than you could see. Maybe a team being overly aggressive. I think it was on On the nfl network this morning on good morning football there was a segment that they do with the giants traded up. You know. I don't know who is doing the job. Esau just a screen grab of it on twitter but the giants gave their first or second ebony ingram and something else to move up to four to get pits and it was you know something that on paper make some sense but you know. Obviously something is not likely to happen but still i would say it's four is where he goes. But the falcons do make some sense especially they decided we want from me jonesing. Another playmaker
Beyond Pandemic’s Upheaval, a Racial Wealth Gap Endures
"It's a 10 corporations across the country say they're making big investments in diversity, equity and inclusion. But are they really Bank of America launched a $1 Billion.4 Year campaign in 2020 on this week's edition of of Colors, a dialogue on race in America, with Chris Korn and JJ Green, Ebony Thomas, the racial Equity and economic Opportunity Initiatives executive at Bank of America, explained what it's all about on the podcast. We made this commitment back in June of 2020. And I think this commitment really enforces the connection we have to our community the importance of this in our community and what we know for generations is that Simen Systemic racism has created a racial wealth gap in America, and one of the elements of this billion dollar, commitment or billion dollar plus commitment is it's just support those communities of color and to close that help support to close that. Racial wealth gap. Today. White family has eight times the wealth of black families and five times out of Hispanic Latino families. And so we want to make sure that we are doing work in the space around entrepreneurship and innovation, housing, small business and quite honestly health to be able to support and close that wealth gap. If there were no pandemic, would we still be doing something like this? I think that the pandemic has definitely laid bare for us. The equities that we see particularly Communities of color around health. And so you know, I think this is a place that we we've had some work in that we've done some some elements of health. But the way that we've doubled down in health is really definitely connected to our response and wanting to support these

Pigs Can Play Video Games Using Their Snouts, Scientists Discover
"Pigs can play video games. Everyone you heard that right. Scientists at pennsylvania state university said they trained to ponder pinto micro pigs and yorkshire pigs to use an arcade style joystick to steer onscreen cursor into a target that was displayed on a wall in front of the pigs. Now when the pigs were successful they learned over time. They'd get a food reward so they were like okay. We want that. However the scientists say during testing the food dispenser broke and the pigs kept plane apparently because they enjoyed the encouragement they were getting from the scientists. Did keep getting things right now. You might say this is amazing. Wow east sports really is going to change the game of the yorkshire pigs. Hamlet was better at the game than omelette both struggled at harder. Levels of the pinto micro pigs ebony hit the target thirty more percent of the time ivory was a better shot at seventy six
Sharpen Your Trust Edge
"Everytime trust went up costs problems skepticism went down. Let's just talk about the simply for your for your listeners. So think about this tech someone you trust. How long does that take your done right now. Try to tech someone. You don't trust a long. does that take are. How are they gonna take this. That tip forevermore so we'll send you have this cost of time or we think of cost of. I talk about where i grew up. I don't know if you've ever seen one of these Mr olsen out in the middle of nowhere minnesota had this veggie stand where yet as beautiful End of his long quarter-mile driveway. He's a beautiful vegetables but even though is a quarter mile from his house get a bucket of cash and yet nobody stood at the stand. So what you're supposed to do as you make your change and pay what you owe any. Take your veggies right so the whole stand is built on trust. Somebody will call it. The honor system trust system right. What's what's the efficiency in this case. He saves money because he doesn't have to pay anybody to be there. Save time in essence because people can just take and go they can grab it. They want just go and interestingly he had incredibly loyal customers not just because they loved his veggies but they they love this experience. So you know in this case trust just gave him time and money and so when i say expensive and it's it's everything but it always is a cost. There's always an expense to a lack of trust. Seager said well a lack of their caused me innovation because that team doesn't trust each other so creativity went down and ovation down. They won't share ideas so lack of trust in that classroom. Oh well now. The the there's no psychological safety so students don't learn or whatever the if there's no trust in in the marketing message then all sudden you know you you don't sell so what i'm hearing you say is like the lack of trust or the the strength of trust. There's a lever in a relationship between trust in almost everything from productivity to profitability to even the depth of the relationships that we can grow. So i guess when. I when i hear you talk about that. It seems kind of like the lead domino for everything else is that when trust is strong and intact so much more becomes possible. Can you share a little bit about that. That's that's exactly what i would argue. And i would even say maybe the leading indicator. So you know in business roy. He's looking at what are the leading indicators lagging indicators and i would argue trust is always the leading indicator people think they have a different This is the big problem and this was the big finding in the original research. That first half of it at least was it. We think we have a leadership problem. We don't the only reason. I follow leader not is trust getting sales problem. No the only reason i buy or not unless it's a commodity something to do with trust. I said it before the only way to amplify marketing messages. Increase trust the only way to increase innovations increase. Trust team so y- this is the leading domino's perfect way of saying it because it's be leading indicator to efficiency and that was a big binding by the way at the time. When i started that first half of the research i was just looking at what's unique about the most successful leaders organizations of all time and i define success as impact and a financial component. So success wasn't just financial but it was success and this positive impact and it kept coming back to trust. So you know that. That the success in a attrition or retention. It's a trust issue engagement. It's a trust issue. I often say this is never a communication issue. You know at the core. It's the type of communication because communications happening all the time. And that's where we get to the pillars of trust and how we actually create the kind of communication high trust medication. They're talking about well. And i love even your example of text because if i receive an email from someone that i do not trust. I read it very differently than someone that i do. So on. elite ends. Jack's or you just questioning like is not what they really meant or and they're the rationalization and it's just such a like wrestling with. What is the reality with match up there. It's hard to see through people's intentions because there's a barrier to where i am and were they are. So how do i bridge that gap. Like if i know. There's someone in my in my world that i don't have a lot of trust what's one thing i can do. Well first of all over all my work it really is about. What can i do to be trusted or bill. So people will say to me. I want to trust that person. More like that guided that terrible thing to me. And i want to trust them. You know you trust them for what they do. So as an example if this person is late all the time. I should trust them to be on time. I trust them to be late. That's healthy. That's why that's good so i like what you said about bringing back to me. So what can i do. And that's where we get to the bills of trust. It's it could be any mix of them. But i have to do what i can do to build dresser maybe this is a little bit To the example at least where some people say because we're all imperfect how do i rebuild trust rebuild. It once have lost it right so i can give one quick idea there in that comes under the commitment color. Here's what we know. The apology never rebuild trust. I'll give an example people. Think that you know. I'm sorry. i'm why i apologized right. I said i was sorry A friend of mine's the from the netherlands came to america ebony. A few weeks. I said what's the first thing you notice in america and he said one of the three days i said yeah he said i i noticed. She got a bunch of lying apologizes. They all say they're sorry and they don't mean it and he said what do you mean he said. Yeah my team is. I'm sorry i'm late but they're late every time. And so this this one little takeaway here but it is important that even our research showed that this year the number one component retention is keeping promises. And that's the same with rebuilding. Trust the only way to rebuild. Trust is to make an keep a new commitment. Wait save out again. Because i think especially with trust is lost. There's the sense of urgency to rebuild it as quickly as possible. There's something broken. I wanna fix it. So that's generally where for me. At least that policy comes in and just quick to respond like. Oh lemme just patch this up with a quick apology. I'll make it sincere and move on so tell like unpack that a little bit. Yeah okay so first of all. Let me say this. The apology opens the door. I am not saying. don't apologize. we show humility. We apologize back cracks. The door it invites the bad actually to heal the relationship. These people don't trust again unless you make and keep a new commitment so if you because there are people i'm sorry and that that okay you get it i understand your relationship but that doesn't mean i trust them again to do this thing or to accomplish this or to finish that or to whatever it is unless they are willing to make an keep a new commitment. Trust is rebuilt by making a commitment in the you know in the book. I did chapter this for companies loss Step process and. And you know there's a lot you can do as a company wants them. Case studies of of companies that have actually rebuild trust but even the big companies. Why can't individual it finally comes down to making an keeping nuke amendment if you want to rebuild. Trust sir apology though. Good to know. Starting in the right place and i think what you said is really powerful because words. They opened the door. They're in a crack and that by giving that apology and then making that commitment it really does reinforce that my word is worth it and that what i say i'm gonna do. I'm gonna follow through on. Because i am trustworthy and because i care about that relationship

Runway elaine is also known for her groundbreaking work while she was the editor in chief of team vogue magazine. At the time she was appointed. She was the youngest ever editor in chief at conde nast title. Elaine bake fan over here. Thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skim from the catch They keep her having the excited. So get you our first question. Everyone gets it better. Skin your estimate for us. Ooh okay. how far do you want to go back. This is your your resume your skin. You tell me oh my gosh okay. Well i'm going to start where it all started back at home town. Buffet in newark california. Where i was dancing. I was the the the host like in the be costume. That be is still like my spirit animal. I feel like i got like my best. Dance moves from being in that hot huge costume. Because all my inhibitions went away and i just had the time of my life and i got paid to just stand there and dance around in fun little kid. I had lots of jobs. I've been working. Ever since. I could get my work permit. Lots of jobs at the mall. And that kind of thing. And then. When i when i was in college i worked two jobs anyway. Flash like my professional career post college. I essentially stopped a woman named harry cole who was the editor in chief of ebony and she eventually conceded and let me be her intern. My very first job in be industry was as an intern at ebony magazine and i sort of worked my way up to beauty and style editor there than i jumped over to conde nast and i worked as the beauty writer and editor at glamour magazine than i was promoted to senior beauty editor. And that's when. I got the big call. That sort of changed my life i from ebay chan who was then the beauty and health director at team vogue and so when she called me about this coveted position that she was leaving and thought i would be a great fit for it. I freaked out. And i just thought i am not worthy. I'm not wearing the god. I don't know if i'm ready. And you know to be the director of a department. I was only twenty five years old. And i had just been promoted where i was so i told her like you know i just you call me six months from now a year from now i would feel better about going after this job but like at this in this climate and the recession. I just got promoted. I don't wanna be labeled this. Ungrateful millennial entitled brad and then they find out that the job and i don't get the job that i'm like blacklisted. So i just was too afraid. And i said i said no. And then lo and behold even worked her magic and next thing you know. I got the call to interview properly or her position. In by that point my boss had given her blessing so there was just sort of a clear path and i got that job. I became the beauty and health director at teen vogue at twenty five and then at twenty nine became the editor of team folks. So amy ashley was the founding editor of teen vogue. She moved on and i was promoted. And then i decided to take a leap of faith in. I think two thousand eighteen. I took a leap of faith. After i felt like i had accomplished everything on my bucket list and more at teen vogue i just i had my heart set on new goals and i started my own business and i wrote a book called more than enough which came out in june of two thousand eighteen just last year. I can't believe it's been a year and the sky's the limit all the things that now. I'm just doing so many things that i feel like. Now i am essentially the editor in chief of my own life.

I am still the ceo of johnson publishing company. So that is great and it. Is that the founding company for ebony jet magazines and fashion fair cosmetics all started by my family and for better or for worse i have never worked anyplace else and so i grew up in the business. Grew up in the in the magazine business in the publishing business and also in the beauty business but always surrounded by incredible people great parents but great staff who were very uplifting and all about aspiration and inspiration for the african american community. So i grew up in the business. I went to Born and raised in chicago got my degree in journalism from. Usc came back and got my masters in management from northwestern. And i got my masters in management. So funny i started out full time in school and then i switched and i went part time so it took me longer but i really wanted to work at the same time and i had the luxury to be able to do that. A lot of people don't have that. But i did because i wasn't looking for a job once i got my degree. I already knew where. I was going to be an actually once. I i got my masters in management. I actually became president a company like the very next day. But i do want to stress. One thing that i think is really important here and that is i have worked in a family business but it was not a given that i was just going to step into this role and if you know if you knew anything about my parents it was nothing was given. You've really had to earn it. And so it does seem like boy. That was a really fast. Reject re but This was decades and decades of work. I mean i spent more time at a copy machine making copies and doing all kinds of stuff that you know people do when you start out in in a company. I don't think that was any different for me. Something that people would be surprised to know about you that if not on your professional bio oh my goodness. Let's see on a personal side. I i love to ride. I have horses. I've owned horses all my life so that is sort of my luxury right now. I don't have one. But it's the way i can relax and i studied opera. We do you think. Please don't ask me to sing. But i did. I studied opera for for many years. Took voice lessons and loved. It absolutely loved it. We're gonna dive into the family business. Tell me about your family. Tell me about your parents so you know my parents. John and eunice. Johnson were part of the great migration of african americans from the south to the north. So my father came from arkansas. My mother came from alabama and very different backgrounds. This is so it's really interesting. My my father came from nothing. And when i say nothing his town great people but only six hundred and sixty eight people there. His mother believed in him so much and she just you know the love that she had for him she poured into just him and so for her. The best thing for him was to get out of arkansas arkansas and get education and the way to do that was you know they. They got on the train and they came to chicago. they had relatives in chicago. So a lot of people. With the migration from arkansas people came to chicago alabama. They came to chicago. My mother came from alabama so my father dirt poor came to chicago. Went to high. School became head of the debating team editor. The school paper graduated attended the university of chicago and my mother on the other hand came from a background. Where you have to think about this. Her father was a surgeon. Her mother was a schoolteacher in psalm alabama so obviously black african american back then prominent family. Her two brothers were surgeons. Her sister was a phd professor in english and my mother came to chicago to get her master's in social services at loyola. So now you've got these two converging people now completely different backgrounds you know and and they met ed dance. My parents met at a dance and my father. I remember him saying you know. Ask your mother. You know at the dance. Could i take her whole and my mother said absolutely not absolutely not it. She said. I'm going home with the person that brought me. And so for my father. Being the maverick entrepreneurs salesman was game on. That was

"Can we have some sort of notification because people were thinking during the pandemic that they still go visit and just to give you some context when you visit. These spaces are hours away unless your parents like in a local jail hours away here in new york the closest facility for some of these places like you know some are very close. There's a facility actually in brooklyn but then there's facilities there light all way by canada. You know my father was in a federal facility that was like although was in new york. It was like six hours away from the city. So that's one way so that's a twelve hour day just driving so we would have to leave at like two three in the morning just to get like a full visit like a full day with him. We had the lead like so early in the morning. Just still able to have the opportunity to spend some quality time with them so yeah it's so challenging and people were doing it and then getting to the prison to find out they were closed. They were locked down and not having any idea in. So it's great to be able to speak on these topics because you just ask really important question like are you able to call know never been able to call him never know it just never know you just never know there's a lot of nuances in this experience that i just feel like the average person has no idea from the monetization of every phone call to even coming to visit and what that experience is like to have to you know. Eat food out of a vending machine. Food is my father. Says it's like he said that's the best food in mayor. Actually the vending machine which to us like to mean you would be like what we probably wouldn't even eat. That is how good we eat out here. I don't know if you eat healthy. But i'm healthy eater. That is junk. It's like pizza like fried wings. And then it's package you know so it's like rose but or a bunch of junk food and not. I can't eat that so you know it's just. It's just a lot of different types of things that we experienced just to stay connected to our parents and i feel like the system. Continuously profits off are pain through all sorts of ways. I mean even of email cost you know even for my dad to email me at caused so that goes against a much money. He has his accountant's usually hundred dollars. Because you can only send three hundred dollars at a time even through western.

"Have really been challenging with the pandemic first of all because of the fact that number one phone calls were scarce. Like my dad in particular Talked to you about my specific situation. I talked to my dad almost every day. And so when the pandemic hit. I hadn't spoken to him bread lease a week two weeks maybe two week. Yeah i think it was like two weeks media talk. Because i think they just kinda like shut down everything so he can have access to phone calls or anything and with that has meant for me over the course of these three decades anytime. He's locked down to that degree. And i don't speak to him. That means that he has been transferred to another facility. Because usually how it works when you don't hear from him usually means that they have opted transferred him and there's no pre warning is just he's gone and he's in some new facility and so that's what i was thinking. I'm like all know cleese. Hope he's in the northeast. I would hope that they didn't move him anywhere. Like i didn't know what was happening. And so of course. This is like traumatizing. Just like oh my god no emails. Because i come to find out. He was locked down. They had been locked down for twenty three hours of the day in only out for an hour every other day to shower to go to the commissary and to eventually make a phone call when we spoke to him and so of course. He can't melissa any letters you know. Because he's locked down so communication and that's at the federal level was very challenged at the state level. Very similarly people were not able to visit. You know people were not notified. That's another thing like they were no notifications about where our parents were. How were they doing. There was just nothing in place and so we got us now. We knew immediately like wants. This thing became very serious. We just kind of decided that we were gonna come together and say we because we got us now. Launched an action is initiative is ten actions from all across the country directly impacted daughters and sons who are advocates for criminal justice reform and so basically action is community came together and you know taking cues from their respective cities and states in their communities within their respective cities and states in like. You know the people that they're in contact with that are also directly impacted. Me decided to come up with an open letter and we will for demands around the fact that we knew that there will be no such thing as social distancing..

"Now i've watched him just struggle with just trying to keep hope alive and trying to keep continuing to press on and seek relief. And when i heard the president obama say at the time that he was you know wanting to reform the criminal justice system. I said oh my god this might be the moment. I think. I have to say something and so my father had a pro. Bono attorney are reached out to them and was telling them like listen. I want to say something. Like i wanna create this film like but i need support outta have any funding. Like what should i do and in that week. She said i'm on my way to the white house because she's based in dc. She's like. I'm on my way to the white house. Because they have this initiative for children of incarcerated parents and i wanna to go. I just wish you had something like tangible. That i could ring so that people could hear your story and i said why you're going where okay. Where's the way you're going to the white house and then secondly you're going for what reason she said. Yeah they have this initiative for children of Parents and i said oh my goodness i can't believe it. There's a name for what i had been living like. I'm gonna informed person. I had never heard the term before in my entire life and that just kind of like. Wow it blew me away number. One that this thing even existed in there was a name for what i have been living and then the second part of it was i. The president is actually. There's an initiative for this. Wow well. I really need to do what i'm telling you like. Well what do you need me to do what you need. So i'm a writer. So i wrote a wrote this lol. Four letter to him to president. Obama saying you have two daughters. My father has two daughters me and my sister and then we have two brothers. And i was just like he could relate like he could totally relate that led to me building up. This website called in prison dot net. That led me creating a change dot org petition. Which now has one hundred thousand signatures for my dad and just really beginning to tell our story and in the process you know i was relentless like i just was like adamant about telling my story you know i wrote a couple of op. Eds are five magazine. Huffington post road for. Mike are now they feel like you know are just was writing because number one. It was cathartic and then number two. I just really trying to create as much awareness about my dad is and secondly you know i had just been so long hit missiles so long and so all that to say that i soon thereafter became a source justice fellow and as source justice fellows hosted by the osborne association in new york for my fellowship and still bear began to learn just about like all the data and research around what had been said about children Parents the osborne association is a state based organization. And my dad is in federal prison..
Reparations: How Could It Work?
"On today's show reparations. Okay. Well, My name is Ebony picket I am a wife and a mother of seven. And four bonus children. So that's total of eleven. You'll hear some of those kids in the background. And Ebony is one of the few black folks in the country is actually been given reparations. It was because decades ago family was the victim of a horrible massacre. It happened in a small town by a lot of black people lived called Rosewood in Florida. And it all started on. New. Year's Eve in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two. So. It was a happy time. It was a time when they were celebrating and they were cooking and they have fireworks little sparklers. Enjoying another. A group of white people in a nearby town had become convinced that a black man attacked a white woman. And over the next few days, hundreds of them poured into Rosewood in a frenzy. Nobody really was expecting it from what we know. They just started shooting up the house from outside and that's what they did for seven whole days and they didn't stop until everything in the town was burned down. Every house was burned down to the crown. Some of our family members were lynched. One of my cousins Sam Carter, his ear was cut off they will keep it in the jar the white mob killed him, and then kept this man's Lia in a jar. Souvenirs, but it was very brutal. The local police just let all of this happen and many Rosewood residents ran and hid in nearby forests and swamps. There was there was no one coming to help for rescue and? That was in the data winter so they were in the cold swap. For seven days. Hundreds of people were forced to leave the harms and at least six black residents were killed. None of the black families went back they had to stop their lives ova. And Today Basically nothing is left of this town. No one was ever charged for the murders or the destruction of homes and businesses. Ebony said it was so traumatic that for years the families were afraid to even talk about what had happened. But in the nineteen eighties, the younger generation decided to speak out. Ebony family took the story to the media to politicians to whoever would listen and they hired a law firm who took their case to the state legislature asking the Florida government to acknowledge what happened and to pay restitution for by the survivors and their descendants. In other words. They asked for reparations. And they got it. Producer rose ramlet talk to ebony about this. Yeah. I read about it being passed as a bipartisan effort, which now seems like a miracle. Yeah. Right. That doesn't really have much anymore in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four when this bill was passed they would just nine survivors still alive and the state gave each of them up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. What did it mean for the survivors the direct survivors when the bill was passed full of emotion. A lot of there were crying some of them were still afraid really even then. Even then. And for descendants like Ebony, they set up a scholarship fund it paid for her college. Education. I was able to actually get a bachelor of science degree in Occupational Therapy Kinda. gave me. You know kind of like a new life a new hope I was a books to actually go into a major that I could actually excel in and into well then. So yeah so it was great. It's great for me. While this reparations plan wasn't Pathak and some of Ebony relatives couldn't benefit from the program. This story shows us that use possible for the US to recognize when it's done. Something wrong. And pay up. So what would happen if this played out on a much larger scale? Because we're not just talking about one horrible attack in one small town. The idea here is that reparations would make amends for something much bigger. Slavery. More than two hundred years of enslaving people and using their free Labor to build the US economy. And while this idea might feel like a political nonstarter. It's starting to get some real attention. Almost a third of Americans polled lost yet said that they were in favour of reparations and a bill to study. This has more than one hundred and fifty signatures in Congress right now. So for us we're wondering. How on Earth to academics calculate how much reparations would bait? Like how do you put a number on that kind of suffering? And how would the US actually pay for it?
How I Built Resilience: Cynt Marshall of Dallas Mavericks
"Welcome to how I built this resilience edition. On these episodes, we talk with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're dealing with this very challenging moment in human history the creative ways are trying to figure it out. So back in two thousand sixteen I got a chance to talk with Mark Cuban he's one of the sharks on shark tank. Of course he's also the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and it was really open and honest conversation and you can check it out in our feet if you haven't heard it. Recently I was really excited to talk with Sinn Marshall who mark brought on a couple years ago as the CEO of the Mavericks sent is actually the first. African. American woman to be the CEO of any NBA team? Now, this is only her second season with the Mavericks I was in the two thousand, eighteen, nineteen season last year, and when she got the call from our Cuban she didn't even know who he was. Embarrassing that I didn't know but it's not totally it's cool. Actually it's better that you didn't know he was in Indiana I worked very TNT for thirty six years. The came to Dallas to do culture transformation in hr work is something completely different for at and T. and after six years of that retired, and then on February twenty two, thousand, eighteen, I started getting all these text messages and actually. I thought it was one of my kids I have work yet. So I thought, it was one of my kids looking for money. So I handed my husband phone and said, one of the kids need money they're blowing up the phone can't handle it, and then he came back and said I think you need to return this is Mark Cuban and so course I asked the moves that and all that. and. So when I when I went to see him. He talked to me about sports illustrated article had just come out and was very genuine about wanting a culture transformation just to clarify this is the article that came out about like twenty years of sexism and. Pretty devastating article about the culture of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban. He came to you saying we got to begin to solve fix this problem and. I need your help, and so we we talked for about almost an hour and I still hadn't decided that I was went to do it an into women talk to me as I was leaving office. What they say to you they said like, please we need you said, are you the person who Marquez going to come in and save us I said well personal I do not have the power or ability anybody but yeah we. are talking about me coming in to to help out and they said you have to come and they started telling me some things that were happening and I said, well, you go home pray about it and maybe I'll come back tomorrow and so I did go back the next day and I was there for about three hours in a conference room with people just coming in and out talking to me mark even know I come back. But. Just met a wonderful people who needed leadership and that's what mark wanted. That's when he asked for and so I said Yes in sin from what I understand when you got there and this I think this is pretty common in a lot of corporate environments and certainly maybe in the sports world from red, there were no women in leadership positions are very few in leadership positions and actually wasn't incredibly diverse either and that was one of the first things that you wanted to tackle hats in had inside a recipe. So the first thing idea was set out of vision. And the vision. This basically said, the Dallas Mavericks was set the NBA. Standard for diversity and inclusion by two thousand and nineteen meeting we have out what nine to do that. So that was the vision we set out because I know the business case for diversity, and you have to have a diverse group of people around the table if you really want to be successful as you can be, and then I had one on one without employs they made some leadership changes and so now we have almost fifty percent women in leadership and forty-seven seven percent people of color and so. I met maps. So your goal was to set the NBA standard for diversity inclusion and are you now the most diverse inclusive leadership team in for an NBA organization I know we're we're somewhere at the top of we. We actually ended up getting the NBA's diversity inclusion award in January for all the work we have done. So that was That was pretty special for us because we have a lot of people working very hard on not just a versity because you know there is a difference a diversity is about the mix. It's about race gender ethnicity, all of that but inclusion is about the climate the sense of belonging it's about what you do with that meet some people, and so we've been very focused on all of that including Ebony including equity fairness and. All. That and so I had a recognized by the NBA was big for us I mean, obviously, we still have a lot of work to do. We'll always have a lot of work to do but I think we've made some progress indefinitely. Let's different and feels different from watching two thousand eighteen according to what the post are telling well
Children of Incarcerated Parents with Ebony Underwood
"Hi, my name is under would I'm fighting for the rights of children and young adults impacted by parental incarceration? Sorry Not Sorry Evans thank you so much for doing the podcast. I WANNA start by talking about your story your father has been in prison for more than three decades. Only. Right now they're still funny. Listen I'm GonNa play so you could hear. Paid. Call you. I'm happy charged for this call college from. Being, recorded for. Monitoring. Hold on I'm doing interview but I'm GonNa get into politics because he can talk they're. Sorry no don't be sorry at all I totally get it. You don't WanNa. Miss that phone call. Oh my God. You know why? Because the federal prison system is on lockdown this is the first time national lockdown and like twenty five years. been on lockdown. So the way that he called like we speak very frequently prior to Kobe, but since Calvin with whenever he calls so I can't miss his call. No of course, not especially when it's public health going on just he feel like he is being exposed in a way that makes him very vulnerable. He's sixty six years old. So he is part of what the CDC considers the most vulnerable population to cove is. We did look at. A time for y'all get it. There is an added touch desperation two calls coming out of jails and prisons. Around the country these days guys is called in it and there's no way to escape us. Oh This is what you see. Me noted I love you and you know. I mean at this hour Dabbagh Israel. Confinement. and social distancing are mostly incompatible. Sale. You have to basically figure out how are you going to just because a few feet down from you is another person. Learn scary for me every single day. I. Talked to him over the weekend. So that's why I was okay with letting my sister taught him because he didn't talk to him but I talked to him over the weekend and he shared with me that he actually was tested and he's negative thank God how do we keep him negative? I mean do they have any protocol whatsoever in place because from what we're hearing it's close quarters there's no masks there's no sanitation is that true? So this is what I know about federal institutions right there oldest. That's number one no error. He has been social distancing till the way that they've been doing it as separating people and allowing each group of people I think it's like ten people at a time. So they're like dorms and bunks, and so within his dorm, they allow the men to go out but because of his age he's like it just seems like there's too many people out and I'm a little tired but which is Kinda bad. Because every other day he gets the shower go commissary and like either email or call all within one hour the twenty three remaining hours he's shelter in place in a cell he basically on lockdown. So it's really heartbreaking sides calling his daughters is there anything that is giving him hope in this time the work that I've been doing tell me how old you were father was incarcerated. I don't actually say my age but I'll say this. I like that. Because of the issue that I'm talking about mainly but I was an adolescent young adolescent when my father was incarcerated and it completely devastated me completely I'm sure and that's such a hard age for a young woman anyway. Yeah. I was a young adult. So it was like thirteen fourteen years old when it occurred what effect did it have on you? I mean besides just being hard how did that manifest itself on your being on your heart? Right, so you know the stages of grief I would say most immediately. Just, Kinda give you an overview what happened. So my father was in the music industry he was a music manager promoter and publisher, and at the time of his arrest, he was like the pinnacle of his career like really doing well. So he traveled very often because he promoted records, he would often go to different states go to radio stations to promote different aren't because he couldn't go to everyone he worked for all different labels and so he promoted many different artists. From like Michael Jackson to like Kenny loggins well under yeah. It's a Ray Charles like all of people and so when he was arrested I guess my gut reaction was to just assume that he was on the road writings traveling because there are no real instructions for how this occurs. Right? I believe it was a coping mechanism. Yeah. Probably that is true it amazing how resilient we can become right after Moodley, and so for the first nine months, we act that way so. It's me and my sister, my sister we have the same mom and then I have two other brothers, an older brother and a younger brother and my younger brother was actually president when my father was arrested he was five years old and he was actually there hasn't of the whole arrest fathers in federal prison. So big like da you know these drug charges. Yeah. It was not good. So my sister and I weren't there and so we just kinda like to him being. On the road some of the first nine months we did not see him right and then he calls and he had been calling all along and now it's this new format calling receive a call and you hear this sweetness from a federal institution. Blah. Blah Blah and so okay, that's new. But whatever again Kinda put him in mind and just assuming that he's where he is but he says the US at that nine month part. Are you guys GonNa ever come visit me?
A look at Gladys Bentley, American blues singer
"Before we get started as we normally do at the start of a person's life I'm going to jump in when gladys was forty five years old in the year nineteen, fifty, two revolutionnaire. Arcada. Their time travel is upset. Yes. Heavens the reason why jumping in he is because nine fifty two is the at that one amount main sources was written and I want to talk about that. Source. Pot, Abou- review before we actually. Talk about that. So in the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties in the USA politicians like Senator Joe McCarthy was spearheading moral and political panicked about queer people in the understanding that we who are not only immoral but also susceptible to blackmail and therefore more likely to become communist spies. Goddess Bentley had built her career on being an openly queer and gender non conforming blues performer in nineteen, Fifty, two in. The African American magazine Ebony, she write an article titled. I'm a woman again in which she talks very late at queasiness before renouncing it and championing heterosexuality and Hetero normativity. In this article, she says, I became a woman again when I discovered unaccepted the one glorious thing which for so many years I had bitterly fought with all my heart mind and body the law of antennas, the devotion of a man. I thought it was kind of Jesus. Is, the man Jesus, the matters not Jesus She did definitely become more involved with her church later in her life, but she doesn't necessarily link that to her. Queens. So like Jesus here but only incidentally. Background character. Incidental Jesus is my Christian rock band. Do you come across. Do. Christian covers rock songs. Both I anyway. What happened YOU CLAP We'll talk a lot more about the background to this article and what was happening in life at that time. When we get to that I, think the sort of political background McCarthyism is. Hardly the main you need to know that, and the reason that I wanted to bring this up and mentioned at the start is because this article is the only information we have about Gladys inhering voice. Well, that's quite a pickle. It is quite a pickle that we are. And it's also the only source of information we have about her childhood before she was about twenty one. Okay. So that's that most by graphical information comes from what can be gleaned from newspaper is nobody's ever written a biography. All Gladys on the work of like interviewing people who knew anything like that is that is something that could still be done. Do you think she was born in nineteen ninety seven so like a lot of people anyone who knew her in her early life is GonNa be dead. Yeah. But from headlight alive that would probably still be some still alive could talk about her bought definitely have to be done pretty soon. I'm not aware of anyone working on unfortunately, but hopefully, someone is yeah. So I just wanted to raise that heavy keep in mind that that's the source of wealth with before we start talking about glass at life. So I got us was born in Philadelphia on the twelfth of August nine, hundred seven to George and Mary Bentley. She was the oldest of four siblings in a black working class family according to Gladys's article in Ebony Mary had wanted a son and she was very disappointed when she had a door refusing much as tasha child on Nessa Child. Gladys. Intern says she always felt repulsed by men including her father brothers and uncles and she says. I suppose the reason was that they will admire while I was scorned from ninety nine or ten. She began to steal her brothers choirs at first to feel she was getting even with them but then I began feel more comfortable in boys quarries than dresses have parents teachers objected to gladys as masculine dress. The gladys was obstinate and she and her parents eventually reached a compromise by gladys wear what's called a meaty blouse. So that's what you'd pictures like kind attritional Salas like a navy ship and she went out with a skirt during elementary school gladdest about to crush on a female teachers she tells us in Class I sat the hours watching her and. Wondering, why I was so attracted to at night I dreamed I didn't understand the meaning of those dreams until later. I. WanNA mention this because it's got his first experience of being attracted to a woman that we know about and also just think it gives you a bit of an idea of how in her article the Ebony she does talk openly about like being que- and being attracted to women and wanting to present in a masculine way and these kinds of things like she doesn't deny that this is an aspect then renounces it and decides that Hetero. normativity is better suicide angle on this that she used to feel this way but she has stopped. Or the she feels this way but has decided that that's not any good. I tell you. It's more than she used to feel this way but has stopped. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's hard to say because she does sort of talk about talk about there are other people who have the same who had the same experiences in she refers to those groups like she uses like way if she's talking about painting society and she's still kind of identifies with those groups. But at the same time, she says as things like I've become a woman again now I love man I'm able to Vin into this female role Besse so I'm interested to hear how gender and sexuality. Interacting glasses life. Easier we go through what I was saying I've become a woman again. that. Yeah. I really interested to hear your thoughts on that. I, don't really nine because we have so little in gladys invoice except this. Has a lot of a lot about the stuff going on and influence why she write this article. It's hard to say how gladys feels about gender, but we will talk about Nemo. As. Gladys grew older cy when she was a teenager, her mother thought taking doctors. She doesn't explicitly tell us in Ebony article the reason for this but it's apparent that it was connected to fairly to perform femininity in the way that was expected of him. Gladys tells us she believes parents meant well botched quite what my family did not know was that. I didn't need a doctor, but love's affection and healthy interests to supplant the malignant growth festering inside of me, and she seems to argue at this point in the article that it was the original rejection by her mother that fest push towards her gender non conforming behavior and that her parents subsequent relations attempting to force her to conform to femininity.
