Dr. Yusef Salaam And Ibi Zoboi On Punching the Air
"So you both met originally, it was ninety nine. There is a class at Hunter College were you were both attending and I wanna talk about that moment and what what came out of it because I know there was a conversation that began that took you on a walk from sixty eighth straight up to Harlem which for those who are not familiar with New York City is not a walk that's often done. And then it kind of vanished into the background for a number of years before it led to this recent collaboration let's let's sort of put a hold on that for the moment because I'm also curious. So the the decade or so leading up to that meeting and ninety nine was profoundly different experiences of life for each of you. and. I want to talk about that a little bit and then what kind of work away back to that meeting and then fell from there. Why don't we actually start with? Agree with you. I know originally born in Haiti raised in Bushwick in Brooklyn, at a time where for those who know Bushwick these days a lot of times people associated with gentrification a Lotta hipsters amazing street art, and are quote RT's no food eighties and nineties very different place right i. Immigrated to the United States from Haiti in Nineteen eighty-one I was four years old and the neighborhood that my mother could afford and was just me and my mother was Bushwick So bushwick at the time was very broken and dilapidated, very much like the Bronx and Harlem. So these neighborhood attack rundown buildings burnt out buildings because of the economic strife. That was in new. York City in the Seventies. So she rented a top floor apartment in a Brownstone by a friend a friend of a friend another Haitian immigrant who had his own business in the basement floor and he was a tailor and Bush get the time was affordable for a lot of immigrants because it was sort of no man's land. And for a long time. It was just me and her I left Bushwick in nineteen, eighty seven and a we moved to East, New, York Brooklyn, another broken and dilapidated neighborhood. That's another place that she could afford. So as an immigrant, I was aware of New York culture but was not part of it. I. Was a child, of course. So as a single mother. She was very overprotective and I watched New York City through the top floor window of a building or a brownstone apartment, and when I was allowed to play with the neighborhood kids outside I got made fun of in teased. But one important aspect about my growing up in New York City is a level of fear that my mother had. around the neighborhood kids. So I, now I know that kids just being kids they are a product of their environment but as immigrant as a single mother, my mother was a single mother as only her only daughter for a time. Neighborhood Kids were sort of a threat she was mugged in Bushwick Park and she was mugged a few times in fact, and that sort of fear she instilled in me for a very long time up until high school. When I started, you know having boyfriends she still remembered the neighborhood kids being sort of a threat and I was actually in sixth grade in east. New. York. Brooklyn when the Central Park five case had happened but before that I remember on gets in the subway vigilante trial I remember all those other racial violence incidents in New York City I watched it in a news I was a latchkey kid. And this all filtered into just my whole view and perspective of New York City as a child as an immigrant child and as a girl quite frankly. So I mean there there's a sense of danger that that is built into I and I mean if my understanding is also I mean. Part of I know your mom sounded incredibly protective I'm curious also whether that was entirely response just what she was experiencing in and around New York in the eighties where there's some of that also was drawn from the circumstances that led her and you to originally leave Haiti in the first place where she was essentially fleeing a relationship for safety purposes for both of you. A exactly, my mother was broadcast journalist in Haiti and my father was the owner of the radio station and he was thirty years older than her. So. What she was fleeing a sense with another form of Patriarchy that looks somewhat different than it does here in his country in that women go into relationships for financial support in a in a different way or fear there is no choice as I tell young people when I talk about my immigrant story is that there is no sexual harassment in a third world or developing country there is sexual harassment, but there's no calling out. metoo movements look very different in the developing world.
Celebrating #BlackJewishUnity Week with the National Urban League
"Next week, two of the world's foremost human relations organizations the National Urban League and J. C. will unite against surging levels of Anti Semitism and racism to declare black Jewish unity week. Together, we will strengthen ties between our nations black and Jewish communities and combat all forms of hate. To discuss the importance of this event and to talk about the challenges of fighting racism I'm joined now by Clint Oda, the National Urban League Senior Vice President for Policy Advocacy and the Executive Director of the Urban League's Washington Bureau Clint, thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Now this special week, this black Jewish unity week is not happening in vacuum. It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.

And and the have and the have nots and that industrial revolution age and.

So all the sets of design slightly askew with like slightly going down you know like the whole thing is crumbling been held up with good and things like that, and then the last thing we spoke about was rim fairy tales and and the fact that as adult fairy tale element to. To honor the comic book idea of it. And so those three elements thrown together. And then must is to keep your feet on the ground. So it's it feels really reliable.

Right. Here in Harlem trees fell down last week because of the storm. So this is just a very first question to ask you how you doing. So Tino, we're going to start with you how you feeling I am tired all the time like I can't complain really too much everything is. Fine but I'm very tired. Okay. Yeah. Short and sweet the TASHA. Who would be a podcast in itself I told you I. Felt. New podcast. How feeling? Is. What. I am I'm having actually every human emotion you can have, and I'm having an all at the same downtime.

It. was the most nerve wrecking name Sweetie. It so I'm here for you sweetie. Oh you understand.

There are now five million confirmed covid nineteen cases in this country, and the number of those infected has doubled since the end of June and then we still have to mention.

Jimi Hendrix’s ‘60s Japanese sunburst guitar sells for over £160,000 at auction
"Watchtower, Jimi Hendrix that guitar that he played in the early sixties, sold at auction with 216 K boys and girls. He was a young Morocco in York City four times the pre auction estimate. They said, 50 to 60 right We talked about this the last time. Hendricks began playing this sunburst electric guitar made in Japan after he was discharged from the Army in 62 that he was even in the army. After leaving Fort Campbell. He moved to Clarksville, Tennessee. For a short time, man. They must have thought he was something else in Clarksville, Tennessee. He played on the chitlin circuit with Wilson Pickett, Slim Harpo, Sam Cooke, I Cantina and Jackie Wilson. I didn't know you played Jackie Wilson for he moved into Harlem. In 1964 where he stayed until 1966 playing venues such a cafe Wah and the Cheetah Club. Hendricks remained in possession of the guitar through his brief tenure with the Eiseley Brose and his own Jimmy James at the blue Flames in the blue plate when he went to England. Guitar was left in New York at the apartment of his friend might quite shy. What is it that it was named? Question provided watching, he pried a notarized letter of Providence for the instrument prior to its own prior to his death. You get tired at a pre auction estimate has said 50 60 reached a high bid of 180 when factoring and fees the total bill was 216,000. Other notable music related items.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes. Over time in for us, it's a three to five year period with benchmarks and timelines and touch points. To see where are in how they are evolving

Because of the virus he had he had ran fever which is part of the transition out phase and part also part of the cancer because the tumor is like an infection so the body will start to try to fight it. Which is where the fever comes from. But then also it's a symptom apparently of end of life so all these things I learned from this little pamphlet. They gave me which is crazy by the way they gave you a pamphlet. That's literally yeah. They came to meet me. They're like okay. We're GONNA come to the House on Mike. Okay good. They're like but we're not coming upstairs. That like you have to meet US downstairs. I was like okay so I'm laughing but it's really not funny like that's just an adverse reaction to other but What else can you die out there? And right on the corner of one hundred. Forty second and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. It's myself the nursing supervisor. The other nurse that was with him on the phone was the social worker for the four of us are having this conversation on the corner and they basically pulled out this book and I think it's called Gone from sight or something and it basically maps out. How the next month to two weeks to few hours. They're going to play out. And so it gives you all the details of how the person you're paying for is going to transition into death well and they just handed to you. They're like here's the book there's like you know. Look through it. It'll give you an idea of what you're dealing with their like. Start MAKING ARRANGEMENTS. Start calling funeral homes and see what you can do as far as getting that covered and you know we'll call you later and I was like okay. Goodness just on the street cornered dropped off like a like a package. Well let me ask you about the the you know that process. That would have been in this little strange handbook that they'd you you started calling funeral homes trying to figure out how to deal with with arrangements. What was that like in in the middle of this pandemic so we had A. We had a funeral home that we were scheduled to work with already so called and I said Hey. I think it's time you know. My Dad is nearing the end. They're giving him. You know maybe a week to a couple of days and so that was the first conversation and this particular funeral home. Venter's they also cared for my grandparents when the past so it's sort of like a family go to And so the initial conversation was we are at capacity. We don't we just don't have the space and I was like wait. What is that me? I don't wait. What do you mean other capacity? I don't like it didn't compute because I'm like a funeral home at capacity. What does that mean? So they're like you know we don't have any space for storage and the alternative to storage for a lot of these places was the city morgue don't know if you've seen the city morgue lately no. Ma'am it's now extended into the parking lot and there are several big giant tractor. Trailer freezers that they're using to store bodies so the ideal situation. Is You WanNa have a funeral home? Pick up your loved one and be responsible for their body until they you know either are cremated or there's a funeral but right now there are no funerals ten person situation with the funeral and I think you're not allowed to accompany them to the burial site. I think they take the bodies and they bury it for you and this is at a time when articles were coming out about Hartfield Yeah the Potter's field. The being the mass being the mass burial site for unclaimed bodies and bodies that couldn't be picked up or bodies that couldn't be processed Or couldn't be held at a funeral home. That's the alternative. Like a friend of mine. Right now is trying to get her mom out and they gave. They've given her a may first date there. Like you haven't told me I to retrieve your person arrows we're gonNA take them to her her island and she's just like I don't understand what that means she's like I don't. I can't find anyone to take their like well. Like that's they're just like all right. Well this will be to do. And that's right now just part of the process and I was like Hell No. This is not what we're doing their first of all my dad would be mad as shit if he knew that he was with all these people all over the place in a mass grave. I said no I live. We literally called maybe fifty funeral home. Fifty different funeral homes. I spoke to people in New Jersey. I call some in Connecticut. I called random places in New York City and everyone has the same story that their capacity and this was before they relaxed. Like the crossing state lines for cremation so I was also getting. We don't take bodies from New York City so I was getting that commentary to as I was calling off. State my goodness. How do you even mean putting fifty calls on anything is is something else? Got Exhausting just got exhausting boyfriends Alco for you because I I it was it was so triggering here the same thing over and over because now. I'm like what the hell are we supposed to do? If he dies here like are they even GonNa come pick him up? Who's picking him up. And where's he going to go so now aside from when is it's going to happen? It's what's GonNa happen after it happens so we ended up. We kept calling them every day because they were like. We really can't tell you until the day that it happens so we were just call every day and because benches neighborhood funeral home. We kind of focused on them the most because we figured since he's from the neighborhood and they knew my grandparents they would do the best to accommodate us so we just kinda put all our eggs in that basket and which is hoping for the best and so we happened to call them the day before and they were like you know. It's very possible that we could do this. And you know we went through the cost and what the process. It's going to be and they're like okay. You know give us a call and we should be okay some Mike. Okay and and just happened. The next day was when he passed that night he spiked a fever of like at almost one hundred six and I started to panic a little bit. Because I'm like I don't even know what to do like I don't know what this means. What does something else is going to start happening and called the visiting nurse service and I started spicing on the phone because I was like. I don't even know what I'm doing I was like. I'm not a nurse. Like what am I looking for? What's happening? I don't know what's happening so finally. She's like okay. We're going to have a visit. I'll call you back though they call you back on face time and you have to show them. You know the patient and you have to do things that they're telling you to do like it's very strange to me. Do It's bizarre. Sob Did die. And then she's explaining to me. You know the time is coming near you know. Make sure you do this you know. Make sure to continue to give him as morphine. She's like we're gonNA pull back these meds and we're going to up the time on these meds. Now have to make adjustments in the log book so. I know that we're not giving him these meds anymore. It's just this And then I didn't really sleep that night. I took a light now because I felt like I had to sleep with one eye open. Like I really didn't sleep that much because you're constantly with one eye open in case you missed something. You don't hear something on my quitting he's choking I don't know you just there's no comfort in any of it And then like five o'clock that morning he was like a little restless so then I just started you know telling him I say you know like okay you know just giving him the okay talk and it's fine and like okay ago. You know because I feel like he was waiting there and I'm telling him you know I'm going to be okay. The girls are okay and just like showing him pictures in China you know. Just come for him into the idea of. It's okay for you to go. Go give him his morphine settled down a little bit and then it was time for the virtual call as I was on the phone giving him. His virtual visit is at the exact moment that he passed from a spiritual aspect. He lives in my grandmother's old apartment. And I felt like my grandmother was there like I could smell her a couple of days before. I know it sounds bizarre but I know she was definitely in the house like I could smell her like I was in the kitchen and I went to walk out and it made me turn back around and look and I was like okay so mike. It's probably going to happen soon. Like from a spiritual aspect. Because I feel like she definitely was present when this was happening and so my parents used to say a prayer with me when I was little and so I said that period may died. And you know I'm not a go to church person at all because while the church is the last place for judgment. That's the first place you go when people judge the shit out of you regardless of what you come with that as well put this talk. You gave to him about it. Being okay to go was that just from the gut was I like instincts on your part were was that part of the handbook that they had given you that this would be something tells you that the ham tells you that but the only thing I really took from the handbook is that the person can still here you to the very last moment. So you have to be mindful of what you're saying in their presence and be just keep talking to them. You know giving them reassurance so in this this kind of duet between you and him and and as you're you're watching these final moments come. How quickly did you Mind HAVE TO SWITCH. To all of the strange particulars of this moment of of the fact that he had died in the middle of the pandemic. And now what were you going to do? Well during the As we're on the call we established that this is what happened has saw the nurse said to me. Okay now you have to prepare the body..

"My Dad's name was Charles Wesley Hall. He came here to the states and when he was. Oh Gosh may be fourteen years old and his Fa- my grandmother my grandparents they lows in Harlem so he pretty much grew up in Harlem. My grandfather was born in Cuba. Hop to Jamaica from Jamaica. They came to the states are seen. You've you've made pilgrimages down to Cuba. Yeah so in the middle of all of this. I returned on March the ten right when all of this started happening. And I had to self quarantine because I was on an international flight. So it's really just crazy. How all of this kind of came together. Because I was down there and I were there at the same time. Allie actually. You know what I came back on the twenty eighth of February. I'm Ray at the end where we left out on March. The seven and we can extend the trip but as you know why there's a little crazy trying to find a park with a little card and having to go to a. Texan the morning to get a new card and all cash. I left my passport at the. Yeah it was. That's a whole other experience if I never darkened the door of an Texoma office worldwide card again in my life. I'll be happy man but I still have my Wifi card in the back of my phone like I'm like I have to go look for the park though I will call home and check in with my mom and she be like. There's going to be a travel ban. Every time I called it was some next elevated news in. I'm just like we weren't hearing any of this when we were over there like I didn't. We've heard nothing about the virus when we got to the airport like I was wearing a mask and some people in customs wearing a mask and the airport. Workers were wearing masks and that was it like no took my temperature. No one was checking to see if I was sick but it was the same way coming back there like. Do you have anything in your suitcase? Did you bring anything back and I was like no. Meanwhile my luggage was like fifty pounds of Yeah Right. Don't worry about the rum and think about the virus. Yeah I I feel like. They are connected. If I didn't have this two bottles of Santiago on say did I brought back with me. This would be a much darker moment in my life and I brought office. I brought office from my office was already closed and the stashes here and it's slowly depleting. I'm just by DOT. I got next time when I go back. I'll bring more. I promise well as you know as a as a Santiago rooted person you will appreciate that this Santiago on say is taking the island by storm and I think he was telling Maria for mind. Who's a singer told me that you know? It's like a revelation to all of them because the weather is different out there. The sugar taste sweeter. The rum is richer. And they're all going crazy for this stuff. They're putting their their Havana club to the side and going with Santiago. Eleven and I'm on board. I'm on the train with her. All right so we're getting back. You come back to New York and all hell is about to break loose just to give you a little insight from the beginning. My Dad was diagnosed in early. Two thousand eighteen with stage for gastric cancer and we knew it was terminal. He went through Palette of Chemo. And you know sort of a palliative care regimen and when he outgrew that we knew that it was time for hospice so fast forward to January. Twenty twenty after we did a short stint in and out of hospitals. We decided that we would just. It was time to go to hospice route. So I come back. And that's when The hospice we started getting the hospice people work in order and just trying to develop schedule and so while I was home. Just trying to make sure that. I didn't bring the virus in 'cause I didn't WanNa bring it to my dad that next week like the schools had closed Or it was the week after that but as that's happening we noticed that there was a shift in even trying to get home health aides to come in so crazy you would. You would think that in home hospice would be somewhat immune from this but I guess right when when this really just kicked off everything shut well. My thing is what I realized is. There's no contingency plan when something like this does happen. Like across the board because hospitals are unprepared These type of agencies aren't prepared and people are afraid to do their job because they're not adequately covered so I mean I get it like I understand the reason for people not wanting to do it but it's just. What's the contingency plan here? Because there there wasn't one so gradually. This hospice service started shrinking. Down in front of your eyes up until it became that There were no more. They weren't coming into the home anymore. It was just virtual visits and he would have to quote unquote manage his own care in. I was thinking what's so now. I'm like okay okay okay. So now has a think Mike. So what am I supposed to do so while that's happening My Mom's aunt who actually is like my grandmother because my grandmother died when I was young. And it's my grandmother's sister. She was eighty nine years old and now now was the very active senior citizens shoes in the casino twice a week. Probably our senior center every day. You know hanging out with her friend like doing her thing independently. She didn't have any pictures in conditions. She lives out in Long Island now. She's shooting in rockaway. Which is the virus. She's living on her own rockaway and then my mom spoke to her. Maybe two weeks and to give or take two weeks into the self quarantine. She kept saying she was tired. She didn't feel well which isn't like her. Because you know she's pretty active and then just notice the steady decline in how she sounded on the phone so my mom's first instinct was like I'm going to go there and I had to tell her. No you can't go there because we don't know what's on so we were talking to her son trying to get some headway and he was just saying you know she's not responding. She's just fleeing here you know. She stopped breathing. Well I was just like Oh my God. It sounds like she might have it so now I called her daughter who lives in California and I told her she needs to come like ace so she got a flight she came next. Stay we go to the House. And she definitely was not well so now. I'm like I'm here again in this situation so I quickly backs out of the house and I just kind of talk to them like from the door so you were out in. Rockaway came came back. And then we're trying to kind of work the phones and get the doctor to get some kind of Hilton. Here that's another thing that kind of weighs on me because I'm like I should have stayed like you think of should've could've would've but it really wouldn't have changed the outcome at the end of the day. So you're like you can't put yourself through that ringer because it wouldn't have changed anything. We later found out that her senior center was largely infected and four of her friends also past positive from the virus to at home too. I think at home to wrap medical facilities one was at a Rehab Center. So that's five. Actually it was a few quite a few so all these things that made her. You know so remarkable in life like her active social schedule her independence or seeking out company of others that would that would end ended up costing life Catholic. Some it just feels like the the story of this city. You know it's like it is a very sociable city whether by choice or by force everybody's with each other and that is that has proven our undoing. You know. Yeah Yeah.

Morgan givens reading Langston Hughes description of New York's Harlem Neighborhood Hood in the Mid Nineteen Twenty S. It's been nearly a century since the Harlem Renaissance and while artists like Louis Armstrong Langston Hughes and Zora. Neale hurston still endure dozens. If not hundreds of works from that period have been lost or forgotten or in some cases never even published will now. Many many of those are coming to life for the very first time this week a never before published novel by Jamaican born poet Claude McKay was published ninety years. I think it was written and another novel by writer. Jesse Faucet was also republished this week for the first time in nearly a hundred years will why are these forgotten works resurfacing now and how did they change our understanding of this cultural movement. Joining me from Saint Louis. Public Radio is William Maxwell professor of English Russian African American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis Professor Maxwell great to have you good day. This is a presser maxwell and from the city in which Langston us was inspired to write the Negro speaks of rivers about one hundred years ago actually wonderful and so great to have you joining us from that place lace as we talk about the Harlem Renaissance in joining from NPR in that very city of New York. Is Morgan. Jenkins author of this will be my undoing living at the intersection of black female and feminist in White America senior editor of Zora magazine. Morgan welcome to you. Thank you so much. Hits Morgan Jerkins Jergen Party. Thank you I appreciate it. Thank you so much also joining from NPR. New York's autumn Womack Assistant Professor of Nineteenth and and Twentieth Century African American literature at Princeton University. Professor Womack welcome to you. Thanks for having me Morgan. Jerkins you wrote in the introduction. To Jesse cassettes novel. There is confusion which was republished. Just yesterday who was Jesse for set and why has she largely disappeared from a conversation about the Harlem Renaissance. Yes so Jesse Faucet I would say it was just a a multi hyphen it artists and she was a poet. She was an essay as she. He was literary editor of the Crisis Between Nineteen Thousand Nine Hundred Nineteen Twenty Six Under the stewardship of WBZ boys and She also was a mentor. I mean she cheap. She published Langston Hughes first home. The Negro speaks of rivers. She mentored county Colon Jean toomer Claude McKay and it's fascinating remaining also said in a sense that she was lost to a public imagination I would say For many different factors and I think one of it is because it was a woman a black woman and she often was overshadowed by her black no counterparts. Well Morgan in a piece that you wrote for for the New Yorker you talk about a dinner that took place in downtown New York nineteen twenty four now. This dinner largely considered to be the event that led to the beginning the spawning of the Harlem Renaissance take a minute. Take US inside that dinner. Tell me who was there who was around the table blend. Also what happened. That was pivotal for Jesse Facet. Oh man so that dinner was legendary in a sense that it was just a WHO's who oh black luminaries and also white people there as well but anyone you can think of that. You know they were at that dinner to celebrate black back office but the word was that that dinner was supposed to be in celebration of Jesse Faucets debut novel there is confusion and she was told by Charles. Johnson who at that time was leading opportunity magazine that it was going to be an honor of her will. The problem got what happened was because because Elaine lock who was also considered one of the midwives of the Harlem Renaissance By Langston Hughes words he was the master of ceremonies and he did not at like Jesse Faucet to this day. I don't not sure why because they were both very educated black people the kate himself in a certain way. Hey Jesse Faucet I just want that known. Yes yes we we different. She was really kind to him. Took them out to dinner which he desperately needed so yes yes he did not like her. It was a very sharp disdain. So because he was the master of ceremonies Monet's instead of centering Jesse Faucet he made it just a general celebration of black writers and it wasn't until years later that faucet actually wrote a scathing letter to lock about how the party was actually intended for her. So this sort of overlooked aspect I I would say. In retrospect was a harbinger of things to come. Even in the afterlife. This was her party and in a way he didn't even invite her. She was there Elsa no she I know she was there but she wasn't. Honored is what I mean to say. She wasn't invited into the circle. I mean she was excluded. Yeah yes well Professor Fester Maxwell you've already put in your vote for Claude McKay. And the way he treated Jesse FA- set shock. I know I have someone else. We could indeed my favorite. I want you to talk about Claude. McKay because you're the CO editor of romance in Marseille. That's a novel by Claude. McKay was published for the first time. Also yesterday they now McCain is maybe another lesser-known writer of the Harlem Renaissance. So who is he. And why was Claude McKay import. Well the first thing I'd like to say is that the reason other than the fact that Claude McKay wrote this book between Nineteen Twenty Nine and nineteen thirty. Three that we have today is because of my co editor Gary Holcomb who for this is not an exaggeration about twenty years. Press to get this into publication. But who was Claude McKay I think it's fair to say he is if not the most radical writer of the Harlem Renaissance Certainly one of them and you can measure that on traditional political spectrum. The one that we inherit from the a French National Assembly he's the furthest to the left of all the Harlem Writers He's a very important early black communist And he would be important in the history of twentieth century ideology political life if he never wrote a sonnet So he's quite radical politically also becomes one of the first black anti Stalinists so he breaks with the Soviet version of communism in advance of the generation of Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison who are more famous for that break who wrote major novels around it. he's radically international He's born in the Clarendon hills of Jamaica in eighteen eighty nine migrates greats to the United States pretty much. The first moment he can winds up at the Tuskegee institute hates what he sees. As the militarized culture. There moves to Harlem but significantly leaves Harlem Justice. The Harlem Renaissance is really taking off and this might be one reason for his relative marginality though. He's very much back back. In Vogue in the best ways so nineteen twenty-three comes around. He's just written the first significant book of Poetry from the Harlem Renaissance which is called Harlem shadows and he gets on a boat and he works as a stoker and he's trying to get himself to Europe and then eventually to Moscow for a meeting of the common tern. Why why why did he leave? Just when things in Harlem for an artist were really starting to harm was he over at all. Was it not for him or did he just have travel. And he's over for it all I. I think that he would have been invited to the famous nineteen twenty four dinner that we were just talking about but I think he probably would have felt pretty badly Afterwards on May not have attended in in the first place I mean he was a hard core Bohemian Wanted a renaissance that was based on both absolute truth telling and on the UNMEDIATED culture of black working class people themselves where he always located wisdom so he was always skeptical of the desire to use the Harlem Renaissance essentially a form of black middle-class uplift politics which is not to say that everyone else in the Harlem Renaissance was interested in that but some of the grandees some of the Great Entrepreneurs Land Lock W. E. B. Two boys James Weldon Johnson and others were certainly in that camp and he was a communist best so maybe also look a Harlem. Renaissance also meant a certain degree for some writers commercial success. I might guess he Disapproved of that Well he wanted more commercial success than than he found believe me but he does argue in public and private With two boys about both both ideological and aesthetic matters And you know. Deploys writes the most scathing review of Mackay's career in which he talks about the novel that was published in Nineteen Twenty eight home to Harlem probably McKay's most notable work at least in Contemporary Times And says after reading it's pages I I feel distinctly like taking a bath. McKay wrote him a very scathing personal after that. So there's a lot of back and forth. It's not just political that's important but they're also aesthetic matters that separate them artists Having their debates in there and their conflicts Especially back then we've talked about some of these lesser known writers Jesse FA- set Claude McKay. But here's a writer that Alice. Here's here writer Alice Walker by the way talking about a Harlem Renaissance figure that many people probably have heard of I think my junior year in school in high school. That was the year that Zora died and I had no idea she had ever lived. I had it never heard absorbable Hurston. I had no idea none that there were black women writers. There's Alice Walker talking about Zora Neale L.. Hurston a writer who Alice Walker helped revitalize in the nineteen seventies Professor Womack Zorno Hurston is an interesting figure gear because most people have heard of her now but she died largely in obscurity. Until as I said Alice Walker kind of revived her legacy in the seventies seventy. So why did she receive so little acclaim while she was alive. And then why did that change so. She actually received quite a bit acclaim while she was alive in the earlier. Part of the What we think of as the Harlem Renaissance so the late nineteen twenty s and the nineteen thirties? I mean she was quite a well. Well known and Prominent Person Artists Anthropologist Personality in the Harlem Renaissance There's a couple of different reasons. I think why she died in obscurity. I mean the one one of the reasons is that she ran out of money And so she. She claims that in many people did too that the onset of the Great Depression a lot of the patronage dried up that was driving and funding these black writers and the Harlem Renaissance She also wrote in a style that was not entirely conventional right so she was really dedicated to capturing during the vibrancy and the pulse and the dynamism of black southern culture performance voice sound so many writers in this time period. We're turning their attention to in New York into urban centers..

The black middle class was leaving for Brooklyn Queens in the Bronx and most of the white population left years earlier. Crime was on the rise in housing conditions had deteriorated dramatically in nineteen sixty eight alone.
