Y. Z. about this situation or about how I left the garage door open so you mirror back what you heard rather than saying back well I've got a problem to a you did so and so so that creates the conflict there which is where most of us live is in reactivity what we want to do is to live responsibly without with each other and Helen I've been thinking that if we can have enough couples in their homes learn this process during a time of crisis they'll have something that will live in their lives after the crisis which is how to connect beyond without call you don't have to you don't have to live in conflict you can live in collaboration and the collaboration starch when you say it's not a good time to talk to you talk back and keep going back and forth with that little simple exercise it creates new neural chemicals in your brain that get rid of cortisol that make sure anxious and could send some endorsement that relaxes you it helps you hear each other Morris what you're saying and it helps you feel that you're hurt as well exactly and when you feel your herd you didn't calm down if you feel like you're talking and the person is just waiting for you to stop so they can talk then it activates you and you didn't come back stronger but listening is the most important thing you can do when somebody else is in stress and date for you and John if I could mention one of the things that Noor chemicals that are released when you're working around collaboration strengthen your immune system and it makes you stronger defending against Kobe eight nineteen yeah I sold and and that's that's the other Celtic collateral so what it does the best thing in the war you can do to not die and go B. nineteen yes have a good relationship because they help us out of the relationship I use the absence of anxiety stress and immune system thank about that so that your relationship is your best defense against getting sick well while I'm challenging is that been pretty cool too thank you so much that's horrible Hendrix and Helen like Kelly hunt talking about say conversations it's time to check your money look into stocks are higher on renewed hopes about a virus drug the Dow is up five hundred and fifty eight point or two and a third percent the S. and P..

from Turkey the latest and much more on the world today with live news from London on the BBC world service and it all begins in thirty minutes after fresh air this is fresh AIR I'm Terry gross let's get back to my interview with James McBride his new novel deacon King Kong is set in nineteen sixty nine in a Brooklyn housing project similar to the one that brought grew up in in twenty sixteen president Obama presented McBride with the national humanities medal for quote unionizing the complexities of discussing race in America the bride wanted twenty thirteen National Book Award for his novel the good lord bird which is being adapted into a Showtime series starring Ethan Hawke it's expected to premiere later this year the bride first became known for his best selling nineteen ninety five memoir the color of water about being the son of an African American father and white mother and what it was like to grow up with eleven siblings earlier we were talking about how his mother insisted that my pride and the siblings do well in school and go to church so getting back to the church what was your mother's role in the church and what was your stepfather on their church your father who died before you were born was the founder and Reverend of the church but he was no longer there when you started going to church my mother basically was just a church go after he passed away and after he died there was another minister who took over my step father didn't go to church that much he would go like for baptism or confirmation or communion something important but he wasn't really a the heavy church going man and but my mother was but she wasn't there she wasn't like the first lady she wasn't she didn't invite in the entire culture of the church with the the whole business of I'm First Lady in them now you must call me mother mother Ruth and she didn't indulge in that she just had a deep spirituality about her in terms of her feelings about god what Jesus had done for her and what Jesus would would do for you if you believe and so forth and she also like the the order the church brought to the house on Sunday morning you know Palm Sunday everyone gets stressed everyone had one pair of shoes a good pair of shoes that you wear to church good clean shirt and you just had to do that there was something about the discipline of having to go to church every Sunday even though you hated it with this like that that made it special and also and this is a big deal is the music in the church was something that I always look forward to so was our choir yeah was very good I mean I thought it was great it was very good but what I what I did experience was that sister Helen Lee who played the organ at new ground which is the church my father started it was a very fine organ player I went to school with a guy named Fred Nelson who was from C. became Aretha Franklin's conduct in fact when I read the front came to Philly I contracted the the local players for her in Philly and the Oprah last gig in New York well because Fred contact me and I've contacted a contract unless it get these guys because the roof was fussy you know about who she wanted you know but Fred was an organ player and I went when I was at Oakland I went home with Fred he's from Chicago and I went to his church and his father played organ at the church and when I heard his father played I said I've only heard one other person play or like that this is to leave from from my old church in New York and Brooklyn and he said yeah they don't play like that in which she had a way of plan like but you couldn't go in that was a big there was a groove you hear somebody hit Jodi Francisco he can do that a little bit there's some there's a deeper thought and I think that comes from not playing with no drummers and also the importance of the of the left hand moving playing really slow your first book was a member of the color of water a witness about discovering who your mother really was you didn't find out that your mother was born into a Jewish family and converted to Christianity later in life you know when she was a young adult you didn't find that out until how old are you probably maybe seventeen that what may probably literally maybe fifteen or so this if they had to do with her last name I had to get a passport well that's a Honda so what was it what was your reaction caused did you feel like a change your identity no no not at all I don't know anything about it I don't know anything about it I just thought it was you know I was not I was from I was even mildly interested I just thought it was you know like when you're fifteen sixteen years you know kill which you know okay with your parents I didn't realize how important it was until later and one was in my early twenties I was at the Boston globe of song to an editor there and he he said image I saw my mother's Jewish and he said really he was a Jewish guy I can't remember his name but he said that so I told him a little bit about his stories that's a great stories you should read a story about that so my mother was living in Philly then I went back came back to Philly and I start into try to interview and she was very resistant but I managed to get enough out of it to write a story that was published in both The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Boston Globe on mother's day in nineteen eighty one eighty two and that's what started that's what started my cure us what I've really started to understand a little bit that she'd come a long distance the it was that it was it was an editor at The Boston Globe who started the whole thing like so your your mother's father was an orthodox rabbi couldn't find work as a rabbi ended up opening a store like a grocery right here in Suffolk Virginia in an African American neighborhood right well where apparently overcharged people it sounds like he was kind of a racist right and I'm she sets someone interested in what it must've been like for your mother I don't know if they lived in the African American neighborhood who just had their store there but she worked in the store so she was often in an African American neighborhood where there's probably a lot of tension between the customers and her parents and she ends up leaving her family and moving to New York moving to Harlem and marrying your father who is African American and then marrying your stepfather after your father died who is also African American it's like it's such an interesting dynamic for her well I did appreciate that until much later but you have to remember that name when she was coming up in the twenties in the thirties you know the south as much it was quite different less segregated it was segregated and even though that this store was in the black side of town they weren't welcome in town either you know because they were orthodox Jews it would you know they were very religious Jews and a father though he was a you know he was a rascal he was quite Jewish and his style in this bearing in in his life as was her mother the apparently the black people in the community really liked her and they like her mother they they they like your mother and her mother yeah they like my mother and they liked her mother my grandmother because they were kind people they were isolated you talk about isolation upon isolation isolated in the south they were they weren't that many Jews in Suffolk homes a small synagogue in the only place to get a job was in a small town like that with they couldn't they didn't have to pick up the pick of the litter in terms of let's see who was a rabbi there yeah he was a member of okay but eventually they got rid of me because he you know he was running a store but yeah he was a rabbi there at the at the local synagogue and so they you know Herbalife the kindest people in her life African American the first boyfriend was an African American and then but she moved to New York and she almost got hooked up into prostitution with some you know some rascals run around and and my father worked for how much she was working on its faction my father kind of got out of that in the straight around and she ended up joining the church and in Harlem and then later on they started a church in Brooklyn that was named after the home minister that that marry them so this **** you know she dove into the African American life because of because of an element that exists in Africa America life even even today and that is this whole business of kindness probably the the most most it was raw feelings I get when I think about the stereotype of African American life is that black people on me you know this whole thing that we hardly we you know we kicking **** with taken nation though this whole I can't stand that because this is not true my mother loved red hook and she loved it in part because when my father died and she had seven kids who was pregnant with me she came up in the hospital and they were the she said the part was full of of food and chickens at all Hammond just people just was so Connie she never forgot that she made sure we never forgot either so that business of of kindness in black American life the something that was stamped into my consciousness and into the consciousness of my siblings from the time we were little did you confuse your growing up that your mother was white a little bit yeah yeah yeah when I was in kindergarten first grade yeah did you ask her about it when you were young what she seems to just ignore you you know what a you know I'm light skin just change the subject she didn't she didn't deal with that it wasn't something that she like to deal with why not that's a good question probably because it was uncomfortable and probably because she didn't feel was necessary see we were poor and since it when you're poor you know it's always about the next meal the next you know the next pair of shoes in next so there really wasn't any there wasn't any time to discuss these you know what you feeling inside the deep feelings you know you mix that you know was there wasn't that to basically look she'd say look you're you know you're Negro we are black and that's what people see so you better do good she didn't want to hear that if you came home school with the grades season when I hear about the black white thing it wasn't it it just didn't go don't bring that up that just brought thunder that will put her belt off the set of belt that she's home when the handle of the door and she pulled that thing off you know done in light that was coming you just just kept you know kept that quiet let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more if you're just joining us my guest is writer and musician James McBride his new novel is called deacon King Kong we'll be right back after we take a short break this is fresh AIR.

"So the army I featured a little video from a soldier explaining how the army is influenced his life, and it was a warm and fuzzy kind of thing. Yeah. And, and then the army asked in a tweet how has serving impacted you. Well, the question is received over twelve thousand responses, most along these lines. Here's a few of them from MS galahad. My grandfather was a World War, One purple heart veteran because of his wounds and gas exposure. He lost his career or physical education, teacher, and coach, I do not recall him ever. Saying one word to me from Helen Lee Fowler. My father served as a paramedic in Korea and was held prisoner a chosen his PTSD lead to abuse of myself and my five siblings. And several of us have PTSD of result. Here's another one Elizabeth grey. I was sexually assaulted and discharged at Madigan army hospital. When are reported what happened. My DD two fourteen was impacted. I was not awarded full benefits. I lived in my car struggled with suicide attempts, and no self self worth now on fighting PTSD claim from Julie Swagman my dad's served in Vietnam. He was exposed to Agent Orange born with multiple birth defects. What he did impacts my life every day. I can't have children. And I'm in pain, constantly Alejandro my friend from high school joined the army went on deployment lost his best friend. There came back with PD committed suicide in front of his wife by jumping off a moving vehicle on the highway, he was really proud of being a soldier, but the army would never know about it, and it goes on and on, and on, and on and on and on, like this you read it and you're in tears. Somebody put a medium post together with a lot of the responses, because they're afraid the army is gonna take this Twitter thread down unsurprised. It's still up. And then you have Donald Trump who obviously read, none of this, because he kept wishing happy Memorial Day to both US Jaffe servicemembers during his final Dayjur Japan happy, Memorial Day, happy Memorial Day. What an idiot. Wow. He's such an idiot. Okay. So there's that. Yeah. That's that's. Yeah. I did. I saw one that was so sad. I I mean there were just heartbreaking yet ex just goes on and on and on here. Hello, nurse thirteen years ago. My ex came home, a bitter, hateful, angry person who was never aided in getting help with PTSD. He constantly snapped at me blacked out and beat me and became a raging alcoholic. Now, I can't stand to be touched and jump at loud noises. He's still serving. He's still. All serving God. I when I was teaching one of the kids, I was I had in my shows her dad came home with PTSD and became an Oklahoma and started getting violent with her. And then she went on to drugs. And then by the time she graduated. No. I, I have no idea what happened anymore after that sweet kid, too. And she, she knew what was going on. She was aware of it as it was happening in, and even wrote a I have the kids helped me write a play and real personal it was all these segments. It was a play just consisting of, of one scene after another were a kid gets up an and has an emotional monologue that they wrote about something about their life and her story was part of that was one of the best parts of the show. So she knew what was going on as it was happening, but she still had it happen. You know, she's still got involved with drugs, and of God knowingly. I think she was kicking them. She was graduating. So that was a good thing anyway to change. The subject Jack was travel, a person on, on Twitter, who travels and takes photos said if any of my tweets ever go viral..

It's work to make chemotherapy more effective in pancreatic cancer is in phase three trials or other cancers will also be addressed using this same approach and now guy Kawasaki the author of wiseguy lessons from a life. Guy. Welcome back to technician hungry for here. Good good. Well, you got a new book here in your adamant, it is not a memoir. It is not an autobiography it's a plane. It's a trade. What is that? It's missile soup for the soul. Obviously, you could get better. You're publishing put it on. Riffing off obviously chicken soup for the soul, which is a collection of people stories, but you're it all of them. I mean, all of them wanna coincidence. So these are all my stories, and it's a collection that covers topics as varied as business social media. Apple values, parenting, kids, surfing Haughey, some mishmash of my life. Well, it's an interesting mishmash. And I like the fact that you you reach back to your grandparents and their decisions to come over from Japan to Hawaii to better their lives. They're gonna story. Everybody has whose ancestors came to the United States. And nobody said let's go there will be terrible. Well, they may be saying that now. Well, yeah. And then of course, they gave birth to your father. And I didn't realize this what your father, of course, was a musician. I'd always known him as a longtime member of the Hawaii Senate. That's who he was twenty plus years something like that. And I didn't realize being the music aficionado. He was he named you after Geilo Barda the beats being named after Carmen Lombardo is brother brothers brother easily have been named Carmen Kawasaki doesn't down and for those people in the audience who either their parents weren't musically inclined or who are below a certain age who is. Guy Lombardo was a Canadian big band leader. So he was you know, the Duke Ellington count Basie kind of stuff jazz. And yeah, and he also always played on New Year's Eve four anxiety old anxiety. So that there was there weren't multiple channels back then. Oh, no. That's how everybody knew about guy Lombardo know, so there you are are you guys Lombardo. Kawasaki? No, this guy wants one good thing. I'm not guy Carmen Lombardo. Got lucky you get lucky that day. Your father had an ear for those things this eyeball oncologists? And your mother who I've always that was just a wonderful gal, you I've always said this. She says always leave a place neater than you found it. Yes. This is a value that I have not been able to inculcate into my children. Perhaps you didn't repeat it. I what am I like failure? And throughout the book. Every so often, you'll decide boxes entitled wisdom. Yes. Case. You don't know. What's in it? Like what year with a suggestion or to not on like always leave a place neater than you found it? Now, it's not a summation about what you're writing about. Which usually see inboxes at books. You know? It's like this is what we talked about in this chapter so much of what are we talking about this? That reminds me. I'm trying to draw a lesson. You know? So every story is in there because it teaches a wisdom. Every story. So there's no story in there. There's just in there for the sake of amusement or the hell of it. There's a lesson in every story. I've done the deductive reasoning for my reader, basically, it's not always obvious. How they're connected. I mean, you were describing the neighborhood you grew up in in Harare, whom poor neighborhood in yet you go right to the wisdom box. Sometimes there are multiple wisdom's. And you say change a losing game. Yes. What does that mean? And why is it? They change. A losing game refers to really my grandparents decision that in Japan at the time. There were limitations on what they could do. How far they could go etcetera etcetera. So rather than gut it out in Japan got on a boat and moved to Hawaii. And I think that's sign of change a losing game. You don't just accept it. You give an example of being in meetings and saying, whoa. This is a losing game. Gotta change it up. Yes. Or losing company. Ooh. Hello. You can also leave a company too early as I have proven three or four times. Or not sign up at the company. That happens. But let's talk about that. You're in a meeting. How do you know, suddenly it's a losing game? You're not leaving your job or you're talking with another company. Explain what that means. Well, it depends. If you're a man or woman. Life vest. So if you're a woman, you will instinctively know if you're a man, you have no friggin clue so you should ask a woman. Women have better judgment. If we your mother. In my case. My wife is the brains of the outfit. I'm just a pretty face pretty fair. Thank goodness step is near. Well, it's interesting pretty phase. And the brands. Well, it's interesting that you say that I remember Marian Cleeves diamond who is a neuroscientist from Berkeley can't hit it a hang with her. But okay, okay. She actually could give you some science to verify. What you've said what I said is true. Yes. I never let the truth. You know, you doubt. But that's okay. So I have academic. Yeah. Yeah. Gravitas. This one little part that makes me better. She was saying that they showed men and women pictures of men and women of crying or an Angstrom pain or a happy smiling and glowing when they showed it to guys they pretty much know guys were unhappy. And then sometimes when they thought they were happy turns out most of the time. They got it when they showed the women to the man it was either worse than random. They just didn't get it couldn't tell happy and sad really sent the same pictures showed them to the women, and they were able to distinguish happy from sad in both genders which says to me if you're going to go into ago, she -ation then. If you don't have a woman with you or you're not a women are they happy they're smiling. Like, they're very unhappy. This brings me to a Steve Jobs story, go for it. So the Steve Jobs story is that right before the completion of the MacIntosh design, Steve and Susan Barnes went to Japan to negotiate with Sony Sony, driving MacIntosh and Sony told Steve they will not negotiate with one and Steve told Sony if you won't negotiate with Susan you won't have our business. So see Steve even knew he needed a woman. Well, he had a lot of women. But I mean, good business sense. He had a lot of managers who are women. Well, before anybody said, you watch more than we would consider, you know, wasn't. It wasn't tokenism. And it was before Jerry Brown made sure that you had a board member. But now he was. Ahead of his time. Because Steve Steve he didn't care if you were. Well, Steve didn't care about your race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Whether you take a shower not really he didn't care about any of that you either good or crap. And that was it. It was a black and white world for Steve. And I don't mean racially. A one or zero one or zero. That's what you get. Now, these wisdom boxes show up every so often, and they'd like one or there's two or three max, I think, and they have they have this hands. The hand side is here. The little finger is is stuck up in the air than the three middle fingers are folded down. And then you get a thermos stuck out. What does this mean? That's a Hawaiian slash surfing symbol called shocker, and it's kind of right on uplifting. Power to the people all the good stuff. Mahalo right on all rolled into one. It's kind of like some of the German words, you know. Explain German were put a bunch of them together. That's a new word. That's it. Why did you put those why put that? So that the reader after chapter two has now learned that every time they see a shocker here comes the wisdom to signal my intent, so I'll have to go see your point the thumb to the wisdom, rather think. As a stand next threat. The wisdom that if you get your publishers in on this did they were they up for this. Yeah. I mean, they even put it on the spine I wou and the penguin. Symbol is this? I dunno as mercury or somebody. You know, holding you look at the penguin, which is tennis. No, it's not a favorite, and I tried to get them to get that warriors. Have a shocker I didn't go for that. Against some corporate. Fire is you? You try. You're listening to technician I'm more again in my guest today is guy Kawasaki today guy is the chief evangelist for Canada the online graphic design tool. A Brandon Basseterre for Mercedes Benz and an executive fellow of the high school of business at UC Berkeley. If you've been around for a while, you know, miss the chief evangelist of apple in the early MacIntosh days and for as many books, including the art of the start enchantment. And the art of social media is here today with wise guy lessons from a life. I have to say what back quickly and let your books, and I didn't realize it was going to bring up the covers. I forgot to some of those haircuts. Pretty exciting. Everybody has mistake. Learn. We'll go with that. Going to teachers then going through your early life here pretty quick here. I love the fact, you shed a report card from your. Let me quote guy relaxed conspicuously this quarter and his grades slip down as he did. Well, this is there's a lot of wisdom there. But one of it is selective memory because I've until I'm like kids in high school. I studied hard. I whistle serious graduated number five in my class or something like that. And. And then doing research for the oh, my God, I found this English report card, and I was getting a C God forbid, you know, Asian American get a C I felt the moral obligation to not only tell my family about that. And show them that report guard, I also printed it that's the wisdom. There is selective memory force as a parent. As a parrot another area where you print something. And you're in its entirety is the commencement speech. You once gave to Menlo school and your advice being delivered David Letterman style, top ten tap. Dan, running down to number one. And I can't decide which of two I'd like. Number two, which is very late last like one of the last most important is don't get married too early. Good. Never heard of anybody who got married too late now. Okay. But I think it's important is challenged the known and embrace the on now. Yes, that's definitely a Steve ISM too. So I think many people go through life, and what's known they accept and what's unknown their shoes. And it should be the opposite. You should always challenging when somebody says this is what it is. You should question that in a nice way when a nice way, but I would say that's especially true today because of social media, and I'm not saying that you can believe everything to New York's times says I'm not saying, you cannot believe anything Breitbart says, but the general attitude should be skepticism..

"Truth. Mom segment today. I'll just tell you go buy my book, Amazon, and I think you'll like it my kids appreciate it too. And leaves a five star review if you have bought it, and you haven't had a chance to do that yet. Please do that. And thank you all. Of you that have already done. So let's check out our Facebook page eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three, your thoughts on the president's speech. So we have a lot of comments. Well, I'm not even sure where to start with the. So let me let me start with as many of the pithy ones as I possibly can. Let's see I wish people this is from Helen Lee. I wish people would honestly respect a woman's choice and leave the personal beliefs out of politics where right away, you want your personal belief ejected into politics. Helen, you are saying you want your personal belief that it should be a woman's choice whether to kill a live human being or not it should be a policy. So why should we let you have your personal beliefs injected into politics and not someone that disagrees? That's not how that's not how that's not how an argument is fashioned. That's actually tyranny came a fly as compassion. Okay. So if you wanna make the argument. Helen that it is better to kill these children and have the right to then to save them make that argument, and you're welcome to do. So that's what a debate is about. But you're not asking for a debate. You're trying to shut one down by saying, hey, I get to impose my beliefs on politics. But if you disagree with me at home, that's not how this works. That's not how this works. Maybe it does over there at salon and in the comments sections there at huff PO, but if you want to come into this arena, we welcome differing views and I liked debate. I appreciate it. That's debates are were, you know, minds get changed. So I'm all for that. But you're not asking for a debate. Helen, you're asking for your side to get its way. And for the other side not to be heard. That's that's not an argument rusty said, I thought it was an inspiring speech. And it also showed us how dark and self serving the Democratic Party is I I don't know. I I agree with that wholeheartedly. I agree. And and that understa-. We don't do binary choices here on the show. Okay. Meaning that everything always is an either or an or or we do the binary choices that God says are binary, you're a male or female, something is right or it's wrong. So we believe in the stuff that God determines binary, not humanism. All right. So just because Democrats are darkened self-serving doesn't mean by extension, therefore, vis-a-vis, Republicans are noble and good. No. I don't believe in any of that. All right, everything you don't like about the Democratic Party every policy. You're watching them pursue that. You don't approve of you need to understand that the Republicans have subsidize all these things. You may find abortion immoral disgusting distasteful, I would agree with all those terms and probably come up with a few more. But the Republicans gave the people who do more of them more than anybody else a half billion dollars a year money. So that's why I said last hour. If the president stays in the space of ice stand for Americana. As the contrast to the paganism that the Democrats are pursuing. Then I think that can raise the stature of his presidency enough that people will use the majority of the American people use him as a blunt instrument to reject that. But he can't just be. I they're bad vote for me. I'm Donald Trump at no, no. Because the number one he's the incumbent number to his personal favorables are way too low for that that won't work. He's got a raises favorables, and he's probably not capable in this environment. And given who he is he's probably not capable of raising his favorables strictly on the basis of of himself alone..

"Go home. But you wasn't supposed to be there. Right. Right. So Judah says she was waiting on a taxi, and she had no intention of even stay. But she was there when Helen arrived. So Helen, obviously uncomfortable in her presence asked their friend a guy named Paul west to ask Lee to get her to leave, obviously. There are different points of view on everything that's going to happen. Now. There's Judith side. There's Helen side. Everyone kind of sees things a little differently been so Helen or Judith says Helen went off on Lee about something and it caused a fight. Helen says Judith walked over to Lee and her and said, I thought you weren't supposed to be with her anymore to which Lee replied, I'm not with this bitch, which is a terrible thing to say about Helen. So either way Helen is hurt kind of acting out. Maybe she hit Louis. I've also read things about Lee hitting her this point as well. Something happened Lee grabbed Helen got her out of the club. He like removed Helen from the club. Helen didn't have her coat or her purse because they were inside. Oh, sorry. She did have her purse. She didn't ever coat. So she turns around. To to try to get back in the club. And. Quoting Helen, she says, I guess he told the bouncer that I couldn't come back in the bouncer said to be miss Morgan hate to tell you. But Lee don't want me to let you in. So how was pissed obviously. And unfortunately at the time Helen happened to have a gun in her purse. Oh, no. So she said, oh, I'm coming in. And I guess the bouncer saw the gun. So he was like, okay. Yeah. You're coming in. That's all right. So she sees she see she says that she sees Lee coming toward her very angry. Right. It's interesting logic. You're outside of the club. And just the two of us in you have a gun. So yes, let's let you into the club. Interesting logic there. I guess he didn't wanna get shot. But let me just start me the perfect because sees me as we're going through the story. I never heard of any of these people before, and that's awesome. Like usually have a vague idea of who you're talking about or like the band in questions. So I'm wondering why are there are so many articles written wiser net flicks special like was it that he was like such a prolific and such a talented musician or such as the story of what happens? To these musicians is wild. It's like a mixture of both with him for sure I think he would have been a legend either way. But what happens definitely made him more. So okay. So Helen goes in the club. She's got this gun in her hand. She sees Lee storming toward her in a rage as she puts it, so she points the gun at him. And she fired. So helen. Yeah. She says I ran over. And I said I was sorry. And he said to me Helen, I know you didn't mean to do this. I'm sorry to I can remember the cops throwing me out. I went into hysterics. And I don't know it seemed to me like everybody must have left. I don't know where the girl went. I guess she means a Judith. The hell out of there juicy says, I think she thought she was next. But she never meant entered my mind, you know, it's a funny thing, she didn't enter my mind when that gun went off it snapped me back into reality to what I had done. I didn't have a coat. I didn't have a bag. I didn't have nothing. I was just sitting there. You know, it seemed like it hadn't registered I said, I couldn't have done this. I couldn't have done this. This must be a dream. And I'll wake up I couldn't be sitting here. And then I just went to jail and sat there so while the police were very quick to arrive on the scene. They actually ended up waiting almost an hour for the ambulance to rive. Thanks to the snowstorm. Right. Yes. So what happened was Lee ended up bleeding out? He probably would not have died, which he did if it weren't for that ambulance taking that long. Whoa. So he was only thirty three. Yeah. And on August twenty ninth in nineteen Seventy-three Helen ended up pleading guilty to second degree manslaughter. And she spent a short time in prison, but she was actually released on probation pretty shortly after so she says I said well, Helen you've got to get yourself together. It's done you done put yourself in it now. So you've got to get yourself together. You've got to get your mind together. You've got to get yourself together mentally to accept what you have done. So when she got out she went back to her roots. She went back to Wilmington North Carolina, and she kinda put herself in this jazz exile, really she ended up staying there for the rest of her life. Obviously a lot of the people in the jazz scene Riveria angry with her three. How many years did she serve in prison? I couldn't find out. Exactly. But I think it was like five tops, probably less. It was like nothing probation. Basically wonder why in like how I don't know interesting. So yeah, the guys in the scene obviously were super upset that they lost leeann everything. But at the same time, it's. The everything that happened. And in the in the documentary, they don't talk about leaving abusive to her at all either. But in articles and in an essay like she talks about that. So there is definitely a lot of. Issues around that. And it was actually. It was actually lead that gave her the gun per protection. So that's another really interesting fact, so I take back what I said earlier, maybe don't be like how in every single way about us like Heli about us like Helen, don't devote your entire self to another or to a man. Yep. That's important. Yes. It is. Yeah. Okay. So she actually became really active in her church. Her son says that taking lease live really affected her greatly. And I hope. Yeah. She really did go out of her way to help others as she had done before. And she she gave back for the rest of her life like as like all she could so one month before she died in March of nineteen ninety six she granted this interview with this jazz disc, jockey and educator named Larry Rennie Thomas and Larry used that interview. You to write a piece called the lady who shot Lee Morgan. And that's again, what I used as like the main part of this episode along with the documentary, I called him Morgan, and you can hear Helen on those tapes that she did with Larry in the documentary. So you can hear Helen talk about this in her own words and everything. And that's where I got a lot of these quotes and everything things for doing all of that. Yeah. What a story. It's it's just like it's just so jazzed beginning, and you know. Just from the drugs to the. Accidental on purpose death. That's what I love about. You is that you can take story. They've never heard of or you know, that I wouldn't necessarily have immediate interest in. And it's fascinating. And it's there we heard. Yeah. It's crazy to that. Most people probably don't know about that unless you're like a jazz aficionado rate. Yeah. Soya she's still alive. No, she passed. Okay. Nineteen eighty six she actually pass like a month or two after she recorded those those. Yeah, it was like she needed to get her story of. Wow. And we're poorly only thirty three. So she was in her forties. Yes. Yeah. I don't know. Like, yeah. That's that's pretty wild. And I don't know. I'd like to cooling says showing the photo. I'll post this photo on the four photo. Yeah. So I'm going to watch this documentary to watch this documentary before I do that. I do have some last things I have to do around the house because as you know, I got everything in order. Yeah. Like

"Exactly. So obviously, though as the years progress things take a turn also I don't think they even mentioned the cocaine in the documentary. I think I got that from other articles and that essay, which I thought was interesting that they sort of block that out. And Helen might have also been indulging at that point as well. It. It's a little bit messy fact wise, I can get why she wouldn't want to be talking about that kind of stuff, but new years progressing, obviously things are going to start to take a turn. Leave began being a naughty. Boy, he started going out not coming home for days at a time. And nobody's surprise. Exactly. So he'd met a woman named Judith Johnson. And he wasn't exactly hiding his infidelity. So, of course, this and the fact that she was much much younger than Helen definitely have an effect on her. She says how says I think part of what might have sorry. I think part of that might have been my fault because I might have started being too possessive or too much like a mother to him classic. Yes. I was much older than Morgan. I thought about it. It was like to me like I made him. You know, I brought you back you belong to me. You're not supposed to go out there and do this. He started seeing a girl, and I understand it. Now, I was on him about using so much cocaine. You're using too much. You're not eating and your nerves. I guess I was beginning to sound like a mother this girl had been after him for a longtime once he got himself straight. She wanted him and they were hanging out. And you know, he had somebody his age to play with. So sadly. Helen win hindsight. Realizes some things. That's not her fault though. I know definitely. Well, I get that. That's mothering a little bit. And she is older. So it has that extra fact. That's also just carrying right? Yeah. You don't want the person you love to be doing tremendous amounts of cocaine every day. Sure. Don't. So since Judith was around Helen Helen sort of started to take a step back. She was still managing Lee though. She was managing all the business side of things and she's making him Coyne. I'm not I don't know. I don't know about that. But they were still technically living together. But Helen started to feel comfortable going out in everything. So she began staying at home. She wasn't going to as many gigs anymore. Only like the more important ones. One of those happen to be TV special. She said naturally, I was there. But that didn't mean nothing because when we left he was going to go to her, and I was going onto, you know, I'm not one of those women that can talk about I'm the main woman, and you've got somebody else out there. I'm not that built that way. That's not me. I'm no, Maine woman. If you're leaving here every night or leaving me here every night by myself while you're out with somebody else. I'm not the main. No. So she's not she's taking it really hard, which understandably she actually tried committing suicide by swallowing poison. Yeah. We was home when it happened. And he took her to the hospital where her stomach was pumped, thankfully. Helen decided I need to get away from this. I I'm going to go to Chicago, visit some friends, but she says Lee begged her not to go and to quote Jalan. She said. I said we can't live like this. It's not me. I didn't go to Chicago. And I told him, you know, Morgan I making the biggest mistake of my life. She would be correct about that. Yes. So nineteen seventy-two rolls in and not much as changed. They were still sort of living together Lee was still seeing Judith and Helen was still managing him. She booked him an entire week of shows at slugs that was going to be in February on a whim. She decided I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go like I manage him. He's my man where he's supposed to be at my man, I'm going to go to one of these final shows. So she had planned to go to slugs and then go to the vanguard later with other friends so on February eighteenth. New York City was experiencing this super insane snowstorm. And Lee had been Judith earlier in the day and Judas live in Manhattan. So she had driven up and had planned to drive home. But they ended up in a bad car. Accident thing the end Judith. Yes. Thanks to the weather. So her car was actually total. But both of them came out of it on harmed. It was very lucky. So Lee was late for the gig. But he managed to get there. And Judith came with him because her car was total. She couldn't go
"helen lee" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"Yeah. So worried about her. I'm just about her. And I just hope she's going to be okay. I'm going to quote Jerry Schultz who as the owner of venue called slugs, which Lee played often. He says he had never come to a job without her. We did the contract with her. You know, it was like she was managing him. She carried his trumpet case, she did every thing for him, and he played a lot. So she she was like his manager. She did everything another thing. How it helped Lee with was his image. The started after this point to care about his looks again. And he liked to be dressed really sharply and look the part so Helen took care of his clothes. She would clean them. She had earned them. She China's shoes before every gig. And of course, not really a surprise. She became a muse to him. There's a beautiful song play a little snippet here. It's called Helen's ritual and it's on his nineteen sixty eight album. Caramba nice. Yeah. So lease career had him out on the road. And soon enough thanks to Helen who was booking him shows and Chicago and all along the west coast and even engagements in the Caribbean. She wasn't a goal sheeting all his deals. She arranged all his flights. Transportation accommodations. She did all of this early. So that Lee could just focus on his music quoting Lee himself. He said right now, it's just me and my wife, so a lot of times I'd say at least half the time. I take her with me. She serves as wife cook secretary everything else, you know, besides it's a nice vacation for her as well, though. It doesn't sound like vacation at all because she and technically not actually married, but okay, obviously, they were living as if they were. So yeah, Helen is happy lease happy. They're just living it up. Great at this point living it up heroin, free everything. Megan some everything's pretty good. She's cute. Not sure about him. Yes. There's a quote for forcing pitchers. Yeah. There's a quote from pictures the way that my mom and my family does hitters pitchers pitchers pitchers of beer, you know, like can you print like if you take a photo of somebody? Can you those pictures for me? Sudbury could be could be it's a hell of an accent. Saying I don't want nothing. No, nothing. No, nothing like that. Yeah. All right. The double negatives. Well, there's a quote from Paul west who was the manager of the jazz mobile workshop and in the documentary. I call it Morgan he's in it. And I felt like this really some things up. He said his life was restored by Helen. And it was a joy to watch. He had his own group. He was playing he was producing and he was living, and they all felt that way. I'll they all it mired Helen for bringing Lee back to life Lee was also teaching young aspiring musicians who admired him in these like jazz mobile workshops, so he was giving back to the youth in the jazz community and everything. So everything was Kate Levin it so Lee was at the height of his career now, and they were most definitely part of the jazz elite. Partying entertaining legends in the scene. A good place to be right. Like that's pretty hip, you know, and he'll eat jazz, jazz, ERC city or city. The sixties sounds amazing. Well, Lee was no longer a heroin addict. He was now according to Helen shooting tremendous amounts of cocaine like what is it going to be? Yes, which I guess neither of them saw has an issue as it probably kept him working longer and harder as opposed to Heron which took life away from him. So I may be I mean, obviously, not the right way to think about that. But at the time, it didn't seem severe they didn't know. No better. Exactly.
"helen lee" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"Just. Her son, Al one of her kids from when she was younger, actually, moved to New York, and they actually became like super close in he joined her seen, they became friends and everything. So I thought that was really cool. He's also in the documentary. Nice. He was twenty one then so they had like an adult friendship and everything they she didn't really know him much growing up. So I'm gonna talk a little bit. Now about Lee Morgan so Lee was born in Philadelphia on July tenth nineteen thirty eight. And he found his passion around age thirteen when his sister, gifted him. His first trumpet Lee could also play the sex when he was just eighteen he joined dizzy Gillespie's big band, and he stayed with that band for a year and a half, which was when dizzy. Had begun to disband the group for economic reasons. So nine hundred fifty six he began recording for blue note, which was an American jazz label owned by Universal Music. He would eventually record twenty five albums on blue note, he joined and toured with art Blake lease jazz messengers for a few years in the beginning like around nine hundred fifty eight Lee had all his talent and greatness, unfortunately, during this time in the band. He was also introduced a heroin. And soon he was dealing with a full blown addiction. So their stories of him wearing slippers to shows because he'd sold his shoes pay for some dope or he had a scar on his head from when he overdosed once and fell on a radiator and like burned his scalp. All right over. Yeah. So his addiction was like, very real and very problematic. He ended up leaving that group around nineteen sixty one and at that point kind of began to have trouble getting hired. He did record his most popular record the Sidewinder in nineteen sixty three though. But within those few years, he basically went from like super successful to practically homeless all of his money. Just went toward the drugs and his life and his career kind of came to a standstill he would still get jobs here and there from friends who cared about him and wanted to help them out and everything. But he was just unfortunately to reliable at that point to have like a steady job, you know, feel like changes coming changes something's going to happen. He's gonna meet somebody, isn't it. He's going meet someone. So. Yeah. One day, we're on the mid sixties fate brought leave to Helen's apartment. So all fate. Exactly. Helen as she puts it was messing around with a trombone player named Benny green at the time. And it's Benny who brings Lee to Helen's door note say about trombone players, what do they say? Helen says I looked at him. And for some reason, my heart just went out to him. She immediately went into that protector mode. And she knew she had to help Lee. Get back on his feet Lee when he came to replace had no winter coat. It was the middle of winter freezing outside. He had pond it to score some dole. He must've been sexy or something for her to be like, I'll I'll show you some photos. He also no longer had his trumpet because he sold that as well. So. Guess what? How did bottom of new trumpet while close? She took him to the pawn shop and bought back both his coat and his trumpet after that. As she puts it Li hung onto me. Yeah. So I'm going to quote, Bennie Maupin who is a saxophonist. And composer who worked with Lee? He says I thought Helen was super she was his confidante his friend his lover, she was older. And she was definitely unafraid to be with a person who is unstable. I don't know much about her background. But whatever it was gave her a strength. She had a real quiet strength about her and he really trusted her. So Helen was actually thirteen years older than Li. Oh, yeah. Shortly after they met they ended up moving into gather. This was around nineteen sixty seven hundred sixty eight and Helen basically went about rebuilding lease ego. Basically. He had pretty much given up on life and music at that point. But she really encouraged him to clean himself up. It was really the heroin. Just that was holding him back like he had all this talent. And everything in you know, he had a good career up until that point. There is no reason that if he didn't get clean he couldn't just get back contract. Right. So she convinced him to enter a hospital in the Bronx to get on a method dome program, which he did while he was there Koetting clean Helen was working hard to secure him some gigs. She let all the jazz musicians and club owners know like lease getting clean. He's going to be ready to work. So once he got out he easily formed a new group with his old, jazz buddies who are all just incredibly happy and amazed to see this transformation and in no time at all likely had his career back. Thanks to Helen. Helen. Yeah. You had a vision. You did it. She was amazing. I only hope that he rewards you. In ways. Yeah.

"Living online, more and more of us are absolutely and especially as a decade ago you and I were in Kenya. It just being Africa at just being connected with these super high speeds undersea broadband links, and it says seem crazy the connectivity needs improvement within the continent. Bill. Thank you for that. Let's move on. Now. Here's a statement data. Scientists will such power over our lives these days, they should sign the equivalent of the Hippocratic oath that binds doctors and our cities should treat risks like data breaches and cyber attacks as they do the big health risks citizens have lost trust in technology. They're fed up with the big companies avoiding tax and the on going rise of automation is fueling uncertainties people worry about their jobs say concerns and aspirations like these they were the outcomes and some of the discussion points at Reese. Recent summit in London digital agenda is a body devoted tech for good knit, partnered with BCS and the agency Edelman on the power and responsibility summit, and we're joined by just say who co-authored a discussion paper ahead of that summit will hear about discussion paper, but first Jim Blake director and editor as digital agenda. I wonder if you can just tell us about going to the main purpose of this summit that you held in London. It was just a bit earlier this month. Wasn't it? Yeah. Sure. So tissue agenda who set up a couple of years ago to provide added impetus to the growing movement for tech for good. By that. We mean technology innovation that is about more than bottom line. Perfect of this could social purpose on environmental purpose is helping improve people's lives, and we've recognized that through our impact awards program will be recognized the likes of Babylon health and Bob bell energy bringing renewable energy into people's homes. And that's a really good initiative, but there's about alongside that because as we all know that as well. As tech for good were, unfortunately, it also experiencing tech for bad. Indeed. As as the delegates were informed by. We're briefed I suppose in the document that you prepared and care off. It's just terrible. So what were the main concerns that you outlined in this discussion paper on which the summit was based think one of the things we looked out with that shortly all of the technology that we use today was never intended to be bad. It was that was not the point of it was just a huge amount of unintended consequences that we now only beginning to realize, so for example, you know, how social media is created echo chamber where people are more interested in talking to people like them and less engaged in the world around them and less connected to people who are not like them. And actually, there are fewer spaces for tree public debate that existed before and and the the unintended things that happened as a result of that. All we're beginning to realize, for example, in the way that people have eight and how that can be affected. Yeah. Unintended consequences at any anybody Advantis repeated some of the assaults turn threats to democracy from some of the innovations that were saying now take things in a more positive direction, you've outlined some of the problems only some of them, obviously. But what about some of the solutions, greater regulation? Yeah. I mean, it's worth saying actually the paper. So we co at the pace that gave the delegates that event a starting point because there are many many issues around technology that we wanted to is Florence a huge area. And so we wanted to create some sort of ground rules for then if you'd like or some way of understanding what's happening. So what we actually seven paper was we believe that as a society will moving from a state of tech worship where we thought it was going to solve everything into a state of tech field. We realize these unintended consequences. We need to move to a new a new phase, which we're calling human tech. So thinking about how design and ethics can be built in t-, the technology of the future. Right. So partly removing fear, and I guess union Blake other outcomes as well then restoring trust. I mean when we did our summit one of the key drivers for putting on the event was this kind of look at this issue about tech trust deficit Edelman here. One of our partners on the event. Do an annual thing could attack to trust barometer. And they found quite serious drops in the level of trust. Among the public around the world in things like social media platforms and transparency in the -bility for of tech companies to look after data. So there is a a little bit of a trust deficit. And it's not just tech companies. It's governments NGOs are experienced all kinds of drops in trust. But that really is is a key emotion, which is driving this kind of concern that we have about data privacy, the mental health of our kids the screen time that the people having the effect on our democracies. This is all slightly wrapped up in issues around trust the thing. So this is all very naughty. Isn't it Bill Thompson this all these networks underpins, so many of our lives if we can't trust them and the corporations, and in some cases, governments running them that that's a huge problem. It is. But we've never truly. Trusted them the networks. The corporations governments have always been checks and balances in society meeting largely politics is about hell you create structures, which don't require you to trust people as much as know that if they do do something that's not in your interests. They can be detected and punished part of the problem with the internet is Jess alluded to is the network wasn't designed to be able to be regulated or able to be managed in that way and is involved to become so critical in our lives without those protections in place. Now seems to be the time where people are looking at how the network operates what we want from the network, and then what would be an appropriate set of regulations to ensure that it still flourishes, but he also serves society. Yeah. Final words debate the view juden and Jess you can choose he wants to go first. But basically the question is where do we go from here? You've had the summit. We ought to make the world a better place. How is that going to happen? Well, we know that regulation is starting to happen is is Bill just mentioned. So you GDP, for example, which everyone is really familiar with now because we had our inboxes in Europe. Hear actually was interesting about now because the internet is global how do you regulate for something? So global impact of GDP are is interesting because we see in other in other regions where it's not required companies are still having indeed and point well-made DDR has global significance adjust a quick five or ten seconds from you to you. And if you can win it was Voltaire and also spider-man's uncle said with great power comes great responsibility. We're optimistic about what technology can do. But it has to be used responsibly as a great power, but it has to be used responsibly, and they will leave it didn't Blake. Thank you so much for coming in. And we'll say to you just terrible. And we're going to talk about fixing our staff now the power to to fix RAM gadgets in its international repair day later this month, which is an annual celebration of not just throwing away your gadgets and rushing off to. Shea shiny toys. And as if anticipating that day, I recently on this program had to go as a former apple design engineer about the unfixed ability that he used to work on. I mean, why can't you change the battery on an iphone Iran's say, let's bring it back up to date. Yes, DIY is great. Like this very piece. This report that our reporter. Hanna Fisher has made all by herself. My phone is two years old, the battery's dying the screen is cracked and altogether. It's looking a bit of date, if I'm being honest, I'd really love an upgrade. But this might not be the cheapest or the best option the festival of maintenance is celebrating makers maintainers under payrolls worldwide. And I met one of the organizers of the event Laura James, the festival of maintenance is a celebration of the people who'd look after all kinds of part of our world from physical places and spaces to digital goods and communities, particularly looking at traditional main. Maintenance, and more modern digital and online maintenance, see if there are common elements in ways, we can strengthen and improve what we do maintenance is happening today in a lot of different places on a lot of different ways. Some of it might sometimes be visible and a lot of it less. So and to think I guess next time you're in particularly in a shed place a community space for public space thinking about the people who look after it, maybe saying, thank you. There are many speakers here today, and I've managed to grab one of them. Daria Szymborska for a Cup of tea and a quick chat in between talks. I worked for Wikki media UK, an which is a charity that supports Wikipedia and other open knowledge projects it's all about capturing the knowledge of the world for everybody. And it's also about keeping up to date as complete as possible. And there is a lot of editors, and humans editing editing Wikipedia. Actually, there is a lot of automation going on behind the scenes as well. And some editors have created robots which performed at fast that they would have done themselves in the past. So for example, if anybody has tried to vandalizing Wikipedia paid maybe put some swear words in there kind of bought that gopher pages and pick them up and delete. Those is quite quickly. Maintaining the virtual world is vital for accuracy of information. A huge issue in times of fake news. But maintaining hardware means less waste, which is another concern. In legal terms is basically anything with a battery or a plug at least in Europe and some countries is defined differently. That's Janet Guenter co-founder of the restart project. A charity that host repair parties and aims to fix our relationship with electronics before the products are actually made there's a huge amount of waste that goes into their production. So there's all kinds of water. Used carbon emitted waste in the mining process that goes into electronics. So it's almost as though the mountain of fifty million tons of electronic waste is just part of the waste that goes into the way we use in consumer electronics. It's much bigger than that. Actually. So the maintenance means less e-waste, and it also uses fewer resources in the first place. But how easy is it to maintain our technology. Well, some of the repairs are super easy. Some things are literally like cleaning cleaning all kinds of things will actually help things lasts longer. Obviously, there's they're harder repairs and some of them should even be done by professionals. But I guess what I put to you is like if you're wheel on your bicycle was broken. Would you just throw away the whole bicycle? I mean, why do we have the same attitude towards mobiles? You know, why is it that we throw one away or get rid of one and not the other? So we're trying to kind of have people think about that value repair as the first. Option so high which you go about fixing your tablet, if like me, you're not the most technically minded, it might be worth asking for some help international repair day is also to to link people together across the world who who are taking action who are part of the repair economy and create a really social and affirmative day where we were we promote repair together if you can repair something on your own and share your repair on on the internet if you can attend community repair and celebrate repair day with others. There's events happening across the world. It's the twentieth. October the year, and we're looking forward to to seeing again people from all over the world celebrating repair day last year. So we're looking forward to it again this year after the festival of maintenance. I've definitely find new ways to consider the relationship that we have with our technology. And it's made me realize that I probably don't need that phone upgrade. After all. That's hannah. Fisher looking forward to this week. International repair day. Are you equally excited and not going for your upgrades? Mister thompson. New this week. Now, I feel guilty. But you also had lasted me five years. So teeny slightly less guilty only enough that package that talking about repairs in an old. You reminded me of something. I went to in the northern bridge city of Sheffield recently, an organized by something called hack circus where I was inducted into the holy order of logical operators. And it was we were supposed to pretend it was two hundred years in the future. And all of these devices were archaeological remnants we had to try to figure out their purpose. And it was fun in itself. It was quite interesting. But it also made me think about this sense at all of this waste. We bury is going to be dug up people who have no idea what it was for. And I just think about the piles of stuff we are inadvertently creating and it's good to see intellectual petty may limit in date Bill. Thank you. And indeed whilst we're talking about fixing all our staff or even building our own devices. There's help and advice on hand soon. As a new book comes out in a few weeks with twenty projects to get children building their own electronics. It's an idea close to my heart because I still fondly recall my own adventures with an onyx. Now, it turns out that the teacher inventor and musician. Helen, Lee was similarly inspired. And she's just about to release the crafty kids guides the DIY electronics. Switch brings making soulless crafting right up to date for the young geeky, Gareth's and hacking..
