"So tied up into this vision of who we think we are and what we think our past is. So learning about how Jefferson was just so closely tied to slavery, even as he tried to minimize it in his public life, that was tough and learning that this period that I was so fascinated by Jefferson and Paris. This is kind of where he went, he went silent publicly on Emancipation. Because Scott, as you correctly mentioned, he had worked on the northwest ordinance. He had been taking measures before then to in his own way kind of gradually, but to go out there and try to strike a blow against slavery, even as he was a slave owner. He stopped doing that. I think both because he felt so deeply into debt he knew that he wasn't able to free his slaves. It wouldn't be able to for a long time and he was getting some political flak for it too. So it was a lot to grapple with. How I saw him differently. I mean, I saw him maybe more in context. And I think that's what we need to do today as we remember him. You don't want to lie in ice him. But I think Jefferson is worth remembering for sure for everything that he did, even stuff that even as I say stuff, even his involvement in the institution of slavery, which is so frustrating and disheartening to read about today. But he was such so much at a centerpiece of our founding on so many levels. And I think remembering Jefferson is also, it's important to remember him, but also to remember those 600 people that he enslaved. And I think one of the interesting byproducts of Jefferson's fame and Jefferson's ability to keep records because he was just a he wrote everything down, not everything, but he wrote a ton of things down that have been saved. Is that we know more about enslaved life on Monticello than we do at any other place in the 18th in America in the 18th century. So we know we know some stories. And Monticello historians and others have done just tremendous job uncovering stories and that's what I do at some point in my book. I got really upset about it, really had a hard time reconciling how I admire this guy so much that I was spending years of my life following him and yet he was so involved in slavery and didn't free slaves even when he knew that people were created equal.

"A number of years ago, my wife and I went to Monticello, I still don't know if it's month to sell a month of cello. Cello is an instrument. That's not a question. But is the name of the place Monticello? Sean, you want to look that up, put in Monticello Monticello and see how they pronounce it. My whole life I have been in doubt on this, maybe both are right. Anyway, that's where Jefferson lived. And it is a beautiful place to tour one of the founders of the freest country in the history of the world. And you go there, and now it's primarily about his being a slave owner, and about slavery. Remember anything the left touches it ruins? Everything. Anything and everything. Once preserved, I'm reading to you from the New York Post. Once preserved as a tribute to the author of the Declaration of Independence, by the way, when we were there, I don't remember what is it, 5 years ago, 7 years ago, it was already drifting towards a non celebration of the life of a great man. A great man who had a moral flaw of owning slaves. Okay, it's Italian and origin. So it is cello. Thank you. Thank you. It was already drifting as he owned slaves, slavery is an evil..

"Man, Stephen Owen, of Enoch ville, North Carolina wrote on Facebook. Half of the comments on Jefferson were critical, wrote William bales of Chester, Virginia and online review after visiting in June. Even my 11 year old daughter noticed the bias. Tucker described his guide last month as surly and dismissive of Jefferson's accomplishments. Some had asked to Jefferson to build a machine in the house, and the guide said, nah, he never built anything. It was just a tinker. It was ridiculous he was the architect of this house, under the University of Virginia. What are you talking about? He replied. Jefferson's life story is full of thorny contradictions, the world's foremost proponent of liberty, who wrote the immortal words we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. Was none the less a committed slave owner until his death in 1826. That's not a 100% correct. They should have added a paragraph here that he was the one who had a language in the first draft of the Declaration of Independence about slavery being imposed. On the colonies by Britain and that they were going to eliminate it. But the South Carolina and Georgia threatened to leave. Anyway, that has made him a prime target for the left they go on last year, Jefferson statue was unceremoniously booted from the New York City council's chambers. What it stood for a 187 years. In the past, the managers of Monticello sanitized Jefferson's history for the 27 million tourists who have flocked there since it was opened. In 1923, references to slavery were few, and signs labeled servants quarters marked sites where Jefferson slaves once lived. I went there many, many years ago, they didn't hide the fact that he had slaves and were the slaves lived. Our goal is to present an honest, inclusive history of Monticello and all its aspects as well as Jefferson's contributions to the founding of the country said Lion, a Monticello spoke idiot. But on a visit this week, the post found the grievance has become the predominant theme at Monticello. From the ticket booth and the

"You learned these things? You see where all the bias comes down, folks. Now these activists have fought ultrasound requirements for years. To keep women from seeing the undeniable baby boys or girls growing in their wombs and are now promoting the chemical abortion pill as a safe easy way to simply undo a pregnancy. Despite the grave danger it poses to women another fact the pole highlighted. These poles are really important as they show what people think once they've been educated, said doctor Christiana Francis a board certified o-b-gyn. When it comes to abortion, Americans ignorance is the left's bias. And so the question is. Really what percentage of the American people support late term abortion. Let alone up to the last minute before birth. Very, very small percentage. And yet, 49 Democrats in the United States Senate voted for it. Voted to eliminate every single obstacle. Regulation. To a boarding. At the last minute, and would have imposed it on the entirety of the country. Can't we at least all agree that that's outrageous? I think we all do. That's where the Democrat party stands. When we come back after the bottom of the hour, I needed to make shred a long enough segment to do this. This is going to upset some of you as so much of what goes on in this country does. But also remember there's a lot of good that goes on in this country, but you're not seeing it. We're not seeing it except in our personal lives. Government Washington the Democrats, the rhinos, the never trumpers, they're very, very negative, some cases evil Activists., but this one, this one is a bit of a punch gut, and a New York Post Monticello is going woke. Monticello. And trashing Thomas Jefferson legacy in the process. So now if you go to Thomas Jefferson's home and Charlottesville, Virginia, you don't learn about Jefferson. You learn to hate Jefferson. To hate them. These people are everywhere on the radical Marxist left. You take your kid to Monticello, you want to hear about

AJ Looks at the Cluster of Presidential Deaths on July 4th

"The close cluster of July 4th, as really weird. Especially given the prehistoric prehistoric, the historic importance of that day. The first adult Thomas Jefferson was 83 years old at the time. And he was bedridden for a month with a bunch of different physical bullshit ailments. He called a fever on July 3rd, died the next day. At his home in Monticello, Virginia. Meanwhile, since hundred miles away and Quincy Massachusetts, 90 year old John Adams was also on his deathbed. And he died soon after that. Entirely unaware of Jefferson's passing. Adams oblivious last words were reportedly, Thomas Jefferson still survives, and it was the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. That's some crazy stuff. It really is. And president John Quincy Adams stuck struck by his father and Thomas Jefferson dying, not just on the same day, but on such an historic occasion, he called the timing visible and palpable remarks of divine favor. Those are such wonderful words put in a row. Visible and palpable remarks of divine favor. I'm not even sure how he came up with that. That's beautiful. There was a Saturday back then, Daniel Webster, and he agreed. He agreed remarking in a eulogy a month after Adams and Jefferson's death, he said they were proof that our country and its benefactors are objects of God's care. And then I know this is like a history lesson, but it's really important. It's July. It's July 4th, these deaths are saying. 5 years after Jefferson and Adams passed away, James Monroe dies of tuberculosis at 73 years old. At his daughter's house in New York

"Crime here through the police feel their hands are tied What's the morale on the force a retired veteran Chicago police officer speaks out at 7 20 right here on 7 20 This morning at 6 Third president of the United States Thomas Jefferson did you have permission to come out to Monticello and look at the foundation of that place when you guys were building it mister president I did not but I can tell you this my dear citizen I had water problems at Monticello throughout my life and I would have been very glad to have the sort of materials and engineering capacity that you're talking about Yeah they used that perma foam insulation they'll keep the floors nice and warm and then if there's a cracks I don't know did you have a basement at Monticello Yes I was in fact it's in many respects on optical illusion but most of the work areas in the kitchens and the wine cellars and places where we stored ice and so on We're below the surface of the mountain as I wanted people to see the house as a neoclassical structure and all of the things that actually make a house work I tried to hide away as much as possible So you didn't have a son pump You weren't able to you had water in the basement was that the water problem you had Well that was one of the water problems I built on a mountain And in doing so I made water a problem throughout my life because when it didn't rain for a few weeks the wells would run by up there And I tried to use cisterns to carry water off the roof But the cisterns leaked I could never find materials that would hold the water adequately And so this was a built in problem that never went away And my neighbors of course all said why did you build on a mountain Well there's that And then refresh my memory At one point didn't you tear the whole thing down and start over again anyway Well yes I built it from pattern books that I bought when I was first a student at William and Mary I bought a copy of palladio's four trees on architecture and built a two story home with neoclassical columns and so on Patterned after something I had seen in one of these books but when I went to France I spent 5 years there as the American minister to France I discovered the dome There was a building called the hotel's Assam that was being constructed at that time I fell in love with it and when I came back to this country in 1789 I had Monticello torn down or much of it I saved as many walls as I could and then I had it rebuilt with the dome that you see today on your nickel or if you visit my Monticello Third president of the United States Thomas Jefferson is a regular visitor to us at WGN radio He was with us this past fall on stage We had a conversation with him in a sold out crowd of listeners at the tivoli theater and we're not going to invite you back this fall sir We're going to invite a president who followed you named Teddy Roosevelt I'm sorry to hear that You know we were 100 years apart exactly but he behaved in a way that has echoes of monarchy or even dictatorship I believe in a republic in which the people are sovereign and there will is exactly into law by representatives of themselves A president should be a very quiet administrative sort of person and not regard himself as a king Somebody could call in and tell him about Mount Rushmore then I won't break the news to him You know it's interesting because since then since you were president the president of the United States takes on extraordinary powers And I've been thinking about this lately I don't know if I guess we could argue that the president of the United States has too much power But I'm more worried about at times the behavior of members of the House of Representatives than I am the president of the United States I don't know Do you think that the machine of government in the United States is well tuned right now Overall what are your thoughts about that Well I live 200 years ago or more So it's not really my business And I know the world has changed in technology and demographics And almost everything is different from in my time when women didn't vote and African Americans were enslaved people and Native Americans were regarded as troubling foreign neighbors So I don't pretend to be able to sort everything out in your time but as I look at it I see first of all a runaway presidency presidency by executive order presidencies which move towards almost complete absorption of the powers of the government That would terrify me and of course you have a Congress now that is so beset by partisanship and faction and distaste a distrust that nothing gets done and a great nation has to have a legislative branch that can move laws forward to do good things can address real problems and find something like consensus for their resolution And so the paralysis of your system is very frightening It would be less frightening in my time when nothing really mattered But in your time when the world travels at a 186,000 miles per second you need some vigor and some efficiency in your national government So that doesn't even bring up the national debt which I would find so appalling that I wouldn't be able to sleep at night in The White House Well you died in debt yourself right I mean you can relate a little bit to people's or countries and ability to keep up.

"Monticello. George Washington's home. Mount Vernon. The home of Mount Vernon's very interesting. They use a process called rustication, in which the wood of the building they engrave it so that the wood looks like carved stone. So they cut it and they bevel it, the wood siding. And then they apply sand to the surface to imitate the texture of stone. It's not really stone. It's a derivative de looks like stone. Monticello is made out of brick, like real brick, except turns out. Jefferson also use rustication to make brick look like cut stone. Futures are not the same thing as Bitcoin. The primary reasons to use future contracts leverage and liquidity. With a futures contract, you don't have to put up the entire amount. Only a portion of the amount. For example, the Bitcoin futures contract, its value is based on 5 Bitcoin. A futures contract is an agreement to buy or Sally specific asset at a future date. So with the Bitcoin, futures contract, that asset is Bitcoin, but the size of the contract is 5 Bitcoin. At a price of over $60,000, one Bitcoin future contract has an underlying value of $300,000. But if you go to a broker and you want to enter into that futures contract, go long, speculate on the rise of Bitcoin, you only have to put up about a $110,000. So that margin account at a $110,000 will go up and down significantly based on changes in Bitcoin because of that inherent leverage. That is an aspect of futures contract. In fact, I read a paper by the CME that hosts the Bitcoin futures contract and gold futures and they were comparing gold, futures versus a gold ETF. A gold ETF owns gold. Gold bullion. The vast majority of gold ETFs own the actual physical gold. And CME the author pointed out while gold futures you get this leverage that you don't get with.

"Timing in a way for the book and for the lessons that you had to teach. Yeah i mean the book begins in monticello and monticello was the first place that i went when i started conceiving of of this book and i wanted to go there because i think monticello in and of itself and jefferson specifically the patron of monticello so to speak jefferson i think embodies and personifies so many of the contradictions and so much of the policy and so much of the cognitive dissonance of america. In the sense that america's a place that has provided unparalleled unimaginable unfathomable opportunities to millions of people across generations to achieve upward mobility and accumulate wealth in ways that their ancestors could have never imagined but it is done so at the direct expense of millions and millions of other people who have been intergenerational e subjugated oppressed and both of those things both of those realities are the story of america in jefferson similarly is somebody who carries within himself. He wrote one of the most important documents in the history of the western world. And also enslaved over six hundred people over the course of his lifetime including ford of his own children. He is someone who wrote in one document that all men are created equal and wrote in another document that black people are inferior to whites in both endowments of body and mind and so when david the tour guide at monticello. Who's this remarkable character. And part of what i love about narrative nonfiction that. Sometimes you find these people on your on your reporting trips who are sort of better than any character. You could come up with if you were attempting to write a novel. Their personalities are so rich and their backgrounds are so complex and dynamic in three dimensional and david was just such a an incredible person to find and and had these quotes like the one that you said there that i think really captured what monticello is now attempting to do in many ways attempting to make up for what it failed to do for so long which is to say that thomas. Jefferson is central to our understanding of the founding of this country. He is central to our understanding of how the american project and the american experiment was imagine and conceived in his also. Someone who knowingly did things that ran counter to the ethos and spirit that he purported to endorse in this american experiment that they were attempting to build. And so you have to hold all of those at once and you can't pretend mike..

That's it's a it's an it's fake intake. Scott okay and that sound does not exist outside the car. The car's very quiet outside. So it's it's being emphasized inside and it's not loud at all outside Breaks eleven point six inch front eleven point four inch rear. I was very impressed with breaks These cars are being lapped around monticello ruthlessly a very hot day granted we were only allowed to do an out a flyer an in at a time And so they. They didn't have a chance to totally degenerate. But i i was impressed for stock. Stock breaks thought they said stock fluid. It was good track pads and tract fluid. You're going to be great for a hot track day. absolutely gauge cluster is digital and figuratively now. So when you put it into track mode you get a. Interestingly you get an a track if you put my instagram it some i show the track cluster which looks kind of like the mclaren. Cluster if you go down little more than a more little more keep going and where is it. Where is it what happened. Go up wait. Oh up Up eighty six. That was the fucking eighty six on. They're on the right. Sorry it's it's there. There's the car and then if you go over one frame so you can see that the track it turns the attack from the round tack into the bar tab right now. It's hard to see in this photo but what's really interesting about this. The track tack is one zero to thirty five hundred. Rpm is about an inch on the left side and then four to seven is the whole rest of the thing so it it's a little funky funky to read it. You know what. I mean you can eat. It feels like you're about to be idle. But you're still at four thousand rpm cfc like reprogram your brain for that. Is that just. Because you're not spending very much time down below that rpm you're not used to it but in the stick. It didn't matter so much you know it it is. It's in the at the track in high performance settings. When you're only using the top half yes it is helpful but it in the auto where i was trying to use the paddles. And if you've driven auto one before they're pretty good for. The paddles are pretty responsive. For an auto. It's a really good set up actually and they haven't ruined it here..

"Of the dude taking my case okay. And that's not someone stealing that's someone who literally was just grabbing pelicans off the fucking conveyor belt and putting them on a trolley because that's what production people just do they just see pelicans sometimes and grab them. Okay and i only put two pictures on instagram. Because there was only the picture that showed the guy the best and the picture of the showed my case the best and that was it but but So i had to go to the airport. Police and file a report in order to get this footage. They won't give it to you otherwise they won't let you sit there and look at the cameras. Youth actually wait three days and then file a police report and then they will look at the cameras. And you don't get to look they look for you. You describe yourself and you describe your bag and so they sent me a few different images of different bags. That weren't mine and then they set me. The one of that is definitely mine. And then but they sent me like fifteen images of the guy getting the bag and wandering around and then leaving. Okay what i noticed. After going through these photos of bunch. Is that the guy with this with this. Trolley that has six cases on it one of which is mine. He's interacting and helping out this other woman who's also got a trolley with like six cases on it okay. I don't have the photo. But but but but he's helping her loathe her trolley also as and they leave one out. So i'm like okay. These people are together. So i call back the airline and i go. We're not looking for a guy who checked in six bags. We're looking for someone who checked in twelve packs. There's no fucking way there's more than two of these on this flight or more than one. Yeah check twelve pelican cases on a flight. There's no way there's more than one and they go well okay but there's a show. You can find that person. I know you can. This is the job waiting for you. All you need to do is go and find who checked v most bags on that flight and that is them and the guy put me on. Hold for like ten minutes. He and he came back and he goes. We found the person and the he thinks he has your case. And we've instructed him that he has to return the case to the airport and they would not put me in touch with the guy they wouldn't let the guy dropped the case off with me. It's got to go to the airport. And he didn't give me a timeline. He didn't say it needs to be at the airport by tuesday. He just said he needs to bring it to the airport. And we'll call you when it's here so like there's a chance that all my shit is in that case. And there's a chance that the eighty-six footage that. I flew all the way to new york and drove all the way to monticello to shoot Is there and look. I know i shoulda dumped that footage. Okay but i did when i got there. My memory card reader is for my one computer. That's regular usb. My laptop is usb. See a time to buy. Another fucking dangle. When i'm there and i was like frankly no one's ever lost one of my bags. You know what i mean. I'm i'm find business class priority. I figured like you know what's the big deal you know i've got the thing on the thing that delta that says where your bag is going like you don't really expect people to like up and walk out of the airport with your bag especially because my bag is covered when in very specific stickers So we have learned our lessons. I will dump footage no matter what then we have purchased air tanks and cables that That we need for usc to drive yet. I have two of them. But i also need more and you need to right. Yeah and and so I mean look this. You wanna talk about a really stressful situation to come off to the texas come off a transcontinental flight right mid mid detox right and i was ice and i swear to god. I was being gaslight at the airport like this dude took my bag like as all the bags. We're coming off but the airport baggage people were like. Oh no just wait no. There's still coming. No no it's wait. It's still and i'm like guys. I have a really bad feeling about this. Our flight isn't just done. The flight after ours is done. My fucking bag has gone. Just wait just wait. And they had me. And i was just standing there waiting and in the terminal to delta. There's no self service gas no cell service. And i didn't wanna go even go outside because what if the bag came down. You don't wanna leave. So i'm pacing for an hour and twenty minutes. I'm having a major panic attack. I'm getting texts. You and this is me. I'm homer backing up into the hedge. Because i'm just these come in. I'm like i'm just going to his phone down. I can't fix this. I mean i was having a major panic attack that continued throughout the night and in throughout the rest of that day and into the night it was fucked up and I don't wanna get too happy until i have the bag in my hand but it was like you wanna talk about a fucking stress test. Holy shit i live. Granting camera gear all the footage you have from the shoot. You just flew across the fucking country. For i mean i would hope that the production guy knows the value of this. Because he's in the job so he wouldn't wait a week to bring the camera case back. I'm betting i'm betting this camera crew got back to wherever they live or work and just hawked all the cases into a closet as it were and just didn't look didn't know you know what i mean. Yes the next day. One of many cases or the next gig or whatever you know. Hopefully it wasn't like a rental shop or the hopefully turn them all into rental shop or something. I hope not. That would be really terrible so anyway they haven't if if delta calls me during this podcast like i'm straight picking it up. What's good is that person now knows. They picked up the wrong camera case and they work in production. So they're gonna go okay. It's on them to return it. Do they have it or if they turn it into a rental shop go fuck and they call steve rental shop like they know they took well case if they don't return it right now that he knows he has it. It's a crime not to return it and and because of the value of it. It's a felony. So i don't have this. I don't have this person's contact information but the airline does and so. What really kind of sucks is once you prove that. A passenger took it from bad claim. The airline really doesn't have any responsibility anymore. They they don't they didn't lose your bag right. Someone stole your back then the cops right and if it and if it never comes back i have to file a claim with my homeowner's insurance delta's it's not dealt responsibility And so but this person has it. Allegedly this person knows they have it and if they don't return it it's a crime at this point so i i believe it was taken by mistake and Fuck me fuck me. i mean you know workout. I have confidence it's gonna work just kept. I just kept seeing lloyd. Bridges in my head picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue. You just kept seeing that shit over and fucking over and it's just brutal like the boat in thailand.

"We know we are winning on the right. They are on the run. They are playing defense on critical race theory. That's another one. Randi Weingarten is who you just heard from the American Federation of Teachers. And they are back pedaling like crazy on critical race theory they're claiming. No, no, no, no. It's only taught, you know, in the military and in the colleges and law schools and advanced education. We're not teaching that. In the elementary school. But by and by the way, it's very important. It's very important and we need to discuss racial inequities in this country. I could not agree more. We should teach American history. The good the bad and the ugly, But the problem is they're turning this around on the right like we only want to teach the good not true. Not true. I took a tour of Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and the guide was incredible. He spoke about all the great things that Thomas Jefferson did, and there were many. And he discussed the shortcomings of Jefferson as a person. The hypocrisy of him owning owning slaves. Sally Hemings being one of them. That does not make Thomas Jefferson evil. That does not require that Thomas Jefferson be cancelled. What have you done in your life? You leftist Ivory Tower, condescending jerk. Compare your life's accomplishments on a ledger. You can even use Excel. To those of Thomas Jefferson and try not to laugh at yourself. Get over yourself. Canceling Thomas Jefferson. No, We don't want to teach just the good but we also don't want to teach just the bad and the ugly. Like this is an evil country founded an evil principles of white supremacists. Um No, The idea of America was perfect and will illustrate that more in our second hour. When I go over the documentary that I just watched about Clarence Thomas And how he referred to his process. With the Senate Judiciary Committee. As a high tech lynching. You want racism? Want to see how this cuts both ways. Lawrence Thomas lends his voice to that project, and it is truly incredible before we go to break very quickly. I want to follow up on the Sean Penn business, and he's not a podcast with Conan O'Brien. They started talking about Cancel culture. Conan called it very Soviet. And to my surprise, Sean Penn agreed, said it was ludicrous. Sean Penn brought up Alexey McAmmond, former editor in chief of teen Vogue, who was fired Only a few weeks. On the job for anti Asian comments she tweeted as a teenager. 10 says. Quote when we're destroying careers like that. What are we really achieving? What are we doing? Then continues. Now he played Harvey Milk, the gay activist who was assassinated in California. Prominent figure of the 19 seventies. Very good friend of Dianne Feinstein. Penn says this, he said today. Almost certainly I would not be permitted to be cast in that role. We're living in a time. When if you're playing a gay lead character, you'd have to be a gay man or trans character. There have been these casting issues. And this is the big rod. The line of the entire article as follows. When you have a period of evolution that certainly has an opportunity for people who have had less opportunities to move forward that has to be supported. In other words, our progress to this point While not perfect, and not complete, needs to be acknowledged. Where a whole hell of a lot further along in 2021, Then we were in, say, 1971 pen continues. And yet in this pendulum swing society that we're in you wonder if at some point if only Danish princess can play Hamlet. It is. I believe too restrictive. People are looking for gotcha moments and to criticize.

The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers

"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

DOJ To Drop Charges Against Former Mexican Official Arrested At Los Angeles International Airport

"Unexpected move by the. Us justice department has thrown the us mexico relationship into the spotlight last month. Former mexican general salvador sent away goes to pay who was arrested in los angeles and face charges of drug trafficking and corruption. Today though a us district court judge allowed prosecutors to drop all charges against wego's opening the door for him to return to mexico and allowing mexican officials to investigate to walk us through this eyebrow raising move. The world's jorges valencia joins us from mexico city or. Hey what was the justice. Department accusing sent way goes of remind us prosecutors. Were saying that he was using his position. As the former defense minister of mexico he was the head of the defense ministry from two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen. He said he was using that position to allow an organized crime group known as h. Two to traffic see nited states without interference now appear to have a very solid case. They spent more than a year on this so it was a very big surprise when none other than william bar the. Us attorney general himself issued a statement. Yesterday saying that prosecutors were going to drop all charges and return general. Cf way goes to mexico. Mexico's foreign relations minister monticello eradicate public remarks about this yesterday. Out here saying that. He doesn't see this as a path toward impunity but rather his way in which the department of justice is showing to mexico and showing respect to mexico's military. This feels like such a one. Eighty especially considering sent wiggles was arrested just last month. So what kind of reaction has there been shock bewilderment. I mean for people who are involved in efforts to fight organized crime here in mexico. They're very surprised by this. Because this isn't just about the charges that inflation was facing a disa- court in new york but also about other crimes that many people believe that the government was involved in while he was the defense minister most notably the case of forty three university students. Who went missing in the southern state of guerrero. And we're never found. I spoke with mike v. he'll he is the former director of international operations at the da and he was based here in mexico for more than ten years. Quite frankly in my thirty one year career with the drug enforcement administration. I had never seen anything like this. That says Langage and the most repulsive thing that i've ever seen in the history of us justice. Marco one important piece of context to have is that mexico's courts are are notoriously challenged some estimates Find that nine out of ten crimes in mexico go unpunished so when you have somebody as powerful as the former defense minister general goes if he actually did commit any crimes that he was being accused of in the united states. There is a good chance that he could walk away without facing trial. Are there any theories as to why the. Us justice department would drop these charges. I mean drug trafficking. Mexico remains a high priority for us national security. There seems be more to the story. I should be clear that it is speculation but the prevailing theory is that by returning generals who goes to mexico. The trump administration is returning a favor to the administration of president under manuel lopez or mexico has done a lot of work to prevent people over the past couple of years from migrating from central america toward the united states. It's very difficult to tell. Because by releasing general goes One question is answered but many many many more questions are being asked. The world's jorges valencia in mexico city. Thank you very much for this. You welcome marco.

"We'll take our first steps through the crumbling remains of Letchworth after this. The architecture of Letchworth village was meant to evoke Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Built in nineteen eleven and feels New York, but two, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, two, acre Hudson Valley estate was a state institution for the segregation of the epileptic and feeble minded. A small stream known as Misiones Creek Bisects the property dividing it between homes for boys and girls ranging from children to teenagers. Letchworth. Village was presented as the Paragon of care and research in its time. It was entirely self-sufficient. Thanks to the large farm on the property. The young patients tend to the fields and animals on worked as serpents in their caregivers homes. Others were given vocational training in carpentry welding and shoe repair. It was its own ecosystem which also meant that secrets were easier to keep. The attendants were screaming again. So Shana pulled threadbare pillow head trying to drown them out. They did this every night drank themselves silly, and then yelled for hours. If. She was lucky. One of the superiors would come and break things up. She was rarely lucky. She peaked your head out from under the pillow to see if emily was doing. Okay. But the new girls bed was empty. No one was supposed to be out of bed. Bad things happen to the children who left their rooms at night. Shoshana didn't move. She prayed watching be entity pillow until her eyelids grew heavy waiting for emily to return. But by the time, her eyes closed the sheet still lay vacant in the dark. As always the children were roused before for chores. Shoshana was somehow relieved define emily's large is inches from her own she woke. Emily was holding a small cloth doll your hands Je Shana asked if it was from home, shook her head slowly. She said she had found it just sean a told you to put it back. Emily said our jaw firmly. To shot at tried to remind herself that emily didn't know yet. She didn't know everyone would try to take it from her how rare it was to have something to hold onto. Maybe, Shauna was being overly cautious. The doll wasn't much to look at anyways it was smeared with. Blood. One of its is had been torn off the clock had faded to a urine yellow maybe summit at thrown it away. Emily dragged the Dow behind her as she worked with Shoshana in the doctor's house, his family had everything. They weren't allowed to have soft sheets fluffy beds nice. Clothes. When she entered the building in the morning, she couldn't help feeling like emily's new doll broke in and out of place. At bed check to Shana watched as emily carefully hid the dollar under her bed. She made been new but even she knew the attendance stole everything. Shoshana. Rubbed at the fading bruises on her arms. Bruises, the same attendance had given her. It was inevitable that emily would get treated the same at some point. But just sean would protector as long as she could. China won't once again to Emily's big brown is the little girl was terribly dirty aside from the pristinely new dress she was wearing emily insisted that she had found it but just Shana narrowed her is she needed to know the truth she couldn't protect her if she didn't know who emily was stealing from. Emily hesitated. Shoshana. Pulled the dress off her and stood up using the extra three inches. She had over emily for extra intimidation. Emily signed and took Shawna's hand. She wouldn't tell Shauna. Could show her. The two girls snuck out of the dormitory avoiding the night attendance emily letter toward the woods for a small hand into Shawna's large one. The off-duty workers were so much louder out in the open where there are no walls to drown out the sounds. She could hear their argument in full now followed by the sound of a fist hitting skin.

After The Fact

The New American Library

"When was the last time you went to the library? Was It for a book a movie? Even a toy. Was it for an exercise class, or maybe it's one of the few places where you're able to access the Internet. For the future trusts I'm Dan La Duke, and this is after the fact. Libraries aren't just about books anymore and haven't been for a long time. But. They've always been about the democratization of information. Thanks to Benjamin Franklin it was about this time of year on July. First 1731 that Franklin created the first free lending library in Philadelphia it signaled a real change in the world that America, not yet its own country. Was a place where information could be available to everyone turns out. That concept has become a cherished one. The Pew Research Center reports that seventy eight percent of Americans say public libraries provide information, and here's the key part information that is trustworthy and reliable. That's no small thing in this digital information age when many people are also saying they have trouble. Sorting fact from fiction sounds like something we're talking about and celebrating and joining us to do just that is Carla Hayden the Librarian of Congress the fourteenth person and the first woman and African American to serve in that role. So Carla Hayden Welcome. It's a delight to talk to you. Thank you. This is a great time to talk about libraries this time of year this podcast likes to talk about the importance of certain American institutions and how they've made our country great. We are right around the fourth of July. That's whenever we want is sort of paying attention to the Declaration of independence, and that's an important thing, but there's another another big American holiday that people may not realize on July first back in seventeen, thirty one when Ben Franklin created the first library in this country beckoned those days. What was the stated goal of a library? And how how if any way is it different? Than the goals today. Benjamin Franklin if you remember was a bookseller and a lover of books, and that time books were very rare and very expensive, and they could only be obtained with great difficulty and so Ben, Franklin. Wanted to have a membership society, The Philadelphia Library Company and he started the idea of lending library and it was in this time. They weren't a nation yet, but it was starting and the idea that. Information and ideas should be free and not clasp out. So that library was created not scholars, the rich one class, but for people who could not afford to have their own, and as time in the decades progressed I mean. The other founding fathers Thomas. Jefferson, being one of them recognize the need for the institution that you now head the library of Congress. It's IT'S A. It's the biggest in the world for for for one thing. Why was there this decision back then to create a library of Congress and National Library sorts in eighteen, Fifteen The British destroy the US capital and there were about twelve hundred. Legal books near for Congress and I've been told, and even shown the fireplace in the capital where the British actually use some of those books, those initial books to start that fire, and at that time Thomas Jefferson the great collector books at the largest personal collection of books in the country at that time. Had retired to Monticello, and he offered to sell his collection to the country to start the library of Congress, and it included the Koran. It was a universal collection. The idea that Congress needed more than just legal books soon said there is no subject to which member of Congress may not have occasion to refer the democratization of information was The whole democracy notion was pretty new in the world in those days. How important is the free flow of information in libraries? ROLE IN OUR DEMOCRACY? Libraries have been almost bastions of equal opportunity to information. The idea that anyone could have access to books. And what more importantly was contained in them was the great equalizer in unifier in many ways now there were difficulties in this country as you could imagine in the Jim Crow South. On there was the segregation of public libraries like public facilities, and that was something that even carried over into some of the northern. A states that had as they call them colored branches. Actually were designated, but that idea. Of A library, being a place as librarians like to say, books could battle it out on the shelves. You put. A book about one thing there and the possibly opposing idea book that describes in another idea. Right next to it and let the public decide.

Why 'Cryptocurrency Would Not Exist Without Black People'

"Actually WanNa ask you about this one tweet storm that you wrote and it began. CRYPTOCURRENCY would not exist without blind people. You explain to people what it is. He wrote there yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely, and this was a talk. That I did at after a while I was even ignorant, so we talk about you know tokenism. You know a continuation of the evolving form of housing transfer body right, and that's from a lot of different different things, different peoples different cultures right, so it's not just say black people are the sole reason why cryptocurrency exist, but it is to say that the prevalence of Fiat currency only came into fruition through the US government in two particular historical instances made this happen one the funding of union troops right during the civil war who desperately needed feet this out at the time, which was one of the economic centers in the world. I don't think people realize how much fuel the cotton and textile. Textile Industry in the loan industries that came off of that globally a really created. Will they accommodate be happy that and created the financial centers like New York in fact back then there were more millionaires per capita. I believe in Mississippi than there were New York and in in this has changed over time in that experiment ride that Abraham Lincoln took in leveraging Fiat currency, which was more broadly understood as we all agree, this has value rather than being backed by or silver like the pound lead into the Nixon years where we quite literally came off the gold standard after establishing it. And this is the history right of how money has evolved in how Tokens Ation where we see the token ization of assets and even you know stable coins in terms of store value money. That, that's the evolution in its follow, and that some of the people the first people who were securitise were also black people We look at Monticello and Thomas Jefferson that was funded trauma loan, collateralized by slaves and also built by slaves. So the complexities in terms of how finances evolve very deeply intertwined into this systemic racism, you know that I call it on and that people you know unfortunately push off as or minimise as a well. They said the inward or well. They didn't let this person into this complex right in. It's really a lot more out. Actually love to be called the inward half systemic racism gone. in in a have the superficial racism right exists I can deal with that mentally and emotionally. You know, but but the constraints of the systemic aspect has quite literally change people's life trajectories in terms of whether they can be an entrepreneur whether they could be hired. How much access to credit they get and how that affects their lively. I don't know if people know this story, but Senator Cory Booker from new. Jersey often talks about this in his life trajectory where. Parents had been looking for a home in a suburb of New Jersey that had good schools, and it was considered a white neighborhood, and they kept being told that these houses that they thought were on sale were not available and this organization I can't remember They must have just worked on like fairness in housing or something. got white people to go as decoys after they had gone to these houses and found that the houses were suddenly available and this. This kept happening and so eventually they picked how they wanted, and when they should have to sign the papers, the sellers were surprised because they thought it was getting a white couple buying it, and that was foul. Corey ended up at you. Know in this great school district. Of course he lake went to Stanford. Was Ruth scholar went to Yale Law School now as a USA I mean he's like you know super successful, but yeah, that's just one story about. How systemic racism or in that case, the the fight against it or winning the fight against it in one instance did have a positive outcome.

Hydrogen Power, Modular Nuclear and the Other Technology Xcel Energy Has Its Eyes On

"You've heard about xl energy goal to be one hundred percent carbon free by twenty fifty but what are the mechanics to get there and is the technology there to deliver reliable power at lower cost. Let's ask xl CEO Ben Folk a how he plans to meet that climate-friendly goal hi Ben Hey Paul. How are you good. Thanks for talking with us today. What is the specific plan to get it to the carbon goals that Xcel has set by twenty thirty and carbon-free by twenty fifty right well. I'll be the first to tell you that will have to have technologies develop up to get us that last twenty percent of carbon out of our system technologies. That may not yet be there today that they're there but they're not commercially viable. Oh no because affordability reliability critical to this but the good news is technologies today will get us to that eighty percent carbon reduction by twenty thirty and they'll do so in a way that affordable and reliable when we talk about carbon neutral versus carbon free. How does that translate to what xl is trying to do? So what we're trying to do is a very pure carbon free meaning that none of our plants are emitting carbon and we're not having to buy REX renewable energy credits to get there so the reason why we're focused on that because we want this to be sustainable and replicable and awesomely we're all part of this thing called a big grid and and we all interconnect with a very few people truly disconnected so we're trying to show away that other utilities and other industries can also be carbon free. I WanNa want to get to some of the mechanics of that in a minute but let's talk about cost. I what where are we with. The latest costs for things like wind solar. Call all the types of energy energy that you have to look at where those costs trending right now you know ten years ago I would be talking about buying wind at sixty five dollars and today I'm talking about buying win for twenty dollars or less and that then competes head on with the price of fossil fuels so often sometimes I say that you know I might not totally retire the the gas generation plant but if I can use a lot less of it and make the fuel win versus natural gas and that that wind fuel is cheaper than the natural gas fuel than the environment benefits and our customers benefit. I WanNa talk a little little bit about wind full disclosure. I'm one hundred percent wind source customer with Xl Energy. How many minnesotans great how many Minnesotans have signed up up for wind source or some of the solar options that you have. Oh I think we're probably in the tens of thousands. It might even be close to one hundred thousand wow that program Paul is where we actually go out and retire noble energy credits which allows you to get one hundred percent of your energy from win but again. I can do that for you. I do it for myself. We can do these things for other customers but ultimately it gets back to if we want to be completely carbon-free. We have to make sure that big grid that we all connect back to US carbon free and is there demand strong demand. You hear that you see that from your customers. I think I went on your website and saw that one of your programs has a waiting waiting list. Is that true yeah I renewable connect product. which is kind of the next generation is very popular because it'll it basically locks customers in to a renewable resource for a period of time one year five years ten years and then depending on what the actual prices of energy do over that timeframe you might even save money and really interested in because we actually go out and build that wind farm that Solar Forum specifically for that group of customers so the program sell out pretty quickly. Let's talk about nuclear how long will nuclear power remain part of excels portfolio well. I I will tell you Paul. It's absolutely critical that that one of our plants are Monticello plant. which is scheduled to retire in Twenty thirty we've asked under our resource plan to extend that another ten years we won't be able to meet that eighty eight percent goal and move away from coal without the extension that nuclear plant now where nuclear ultimately goes. I think is depended it upon what the next generation of nuclear looks like and what the price looks like and what that compares to other alternatives. I happen to think it needs to be in our nation's energy portfolio oil. It is carbon free. It's twenty four seven dispatch -able and very important to the grid health so I'm a fan of nuclear but I'm also a fan kind of other technologies if they can do the same job well. Let's talk about some of those other technologies how much solar and how much wind is xl planning to add in the next several decades well well. We're already been a win leader for the last thirteen years. I believe we'll continue that wind leadership as we start to shut down our coal plants or replace a lot of that was solar energy so in the middle the twenty twenties look for us to add about three thousand megawatts of solar and trying to put that in context for for your listeners but it would probably it'll ultimately represent probably about twenty twenty five percent of our energy mix we as we move towards twenty thirty. I had had the opportunity to visit a solar garden earlier this year out around Norwood Young America and one megawatt project. I think it took up about ten acres of land and I'm curious how are farmers and other landowners cities reacting to the growth of solar and wind in Minnesota. Is there any pushback on the land use there. There's always some on pushback on any technology I think but for the most part wind is been really embraced by the farming community because you can still farm the land and I've had farmers come. I'm up to me and all the states we serve and and and tell me that if it hadn't been for the wind farm we put on their their farm in the royalty stream that goes with that then they might not be in business so it's generally been popular. There are issues with it. Solar is a little bit different. I mean you can't really farm the land and you're right. It's very land intensive about six to eight acres. Here's for per megawatt. I think that's an issue that's more pronounced when you're closer into the Metro region because cities don't necessarily want to see their land be devoted to a solar farm. They'd rather develop it as you get further out into the more remote areas. I think we can we can bridge that concern

Slave trade remembrance concerns all humanity

"The history of the global slave trade concerns all humanity as has it impacts on modern societies according to the assistant director general for social and human sciences at the u._n. Cultural organisation unesco go now dr al-nashif was speaking to you and news ahead of the international day for the remembrance of the slave trade and its abolition celebrated needed annually on the twenty third of august twenty five years ago unesco launch the slave route project resistance liberty heritage a landmark initiative if that helped break the silence rounding the slave trade and slavery and a komo began by asking nada alma chief about the impact of the project given the origins of unesco our foundation obviously with the u._n. System on the ruins of the second world war <hes> creating peace in the minds of men and women was the ultimate <hes> core of the constitution and the fact of ignoring and obscuring major historical <hes> events with something that we wanted to redress and this was the hidden history of course that unesco wanted to have societies come to terms comes with and we believe that much of the issues actually remain today <hes> what's happened twenty five years ago. I think the most significant achievements were having decided to pursue this in a scientific way. <hes> we chose a a concept of route because of the dynamic movement that's his implicit <hes> and i would say that we have managed to foster to raise a much bigger awareness of the ethical but also of the political socio economic the cultural consequences of this entire exchange of people in civilizations <hes> we have prompted home to the development of research universities publications of books <hes> many pedagogical materials films and of course this <hes> many many debates and public engagements <hes> so and i think by giving the slave rate this universal dimension <hes> we have made sure everyone everyone understands. This is not a partial history the history that concerns the whole of humanity and we need to <hes> to discuss it. Maybe if i can just add a <hes> two things was a main accomplishment of the project was the fact that <hes> it's contributed to the recognition of the slave trade and slavery as a crime against humanity entity which is a specific category of crimes by the world conference against racism racial discrimination xenophobia in durban south africa two thousand and one <hes> and then also it allowed to advocate for the international decade for the people of african descent which is ongoing <hes> now <hes> and <hes> to which which we have many many attributes among them. I don't know if you've seen it but <hes> we contributed to the erection of a beautiful permanent memorial dedicated to the victims of the slave. They've trade inside the compound near the visitor's entrance one of these essential aspects of telling the history of slavery. It's not forget it so it's not repeated what lessons can be learned more. Specifically amongst the use wendy are exposed to the history of slavery and slave trade. Unfortunately as i said many of all of these issues are recurring and so it is very important for us at young people understand the caroline. <hes> as i said this is about freedom. It's about human rights. It's about dignity <hes> and it's about the culture of emancipation and what we want to do is make sure that young people in particular understand how we can see memory in a positive way i mean despite all the pain that is in memory and the healing that has to happen <hes> we want to turn this into a constructive pivots for young people to know what must not happen again and i think fighting thing racism in particular is a very important part of what we do so <hes> some things is for example making sure that people understand that these <hes> <hes> now. We have things that we call sites of memory. It's bringing everything to the surface and especially investing. I think for young people into understanding this as part of cultural social heritage we have now a label which was created in two thousand and thirteen cool site of memory associated with the slave roots and we have excuse of memory in africa and south america north america europe indian ocean and the caribbean we have produced resource books for example food and the handbook for new approaches in interpreting and representing slavery in museums again. There is a lot of exchange. Now and young people are participating participating from the perspective of cultural expression <hes> about how we represents this issue in these public domains all of that is very important and maybe <hes> maybe finally under this thing. There are many cultural creative activities that we enjoy today that come from the resistance of those who were enslaved slave. I wanna talk about jazz reggae hip hop kappa wera <hes> and i think these are all methods through which we reach younger the people <hes> more more intimately. I think and more profoundly what do you think it's the role of the artists specifically in with the healing the pain that comes with this period of history well. I think artists have a remarkable obviously for for for unesco cultural expression is a core commitment but it's also a corps belief <hes> in the sense that we rely not on our artists so we have a fantastic coalition of artists who've been working with us <hes> on the general history of africa including understanding slavery in fact for <hes> today marcus miller the great jazz artists recorded according to the message for us <hes> his voice is an easy amplification of the messages. You know so we have material. We have the scientific evidence. Don't we have this study but the artists in their own creativity. I think can reach a much wider audience <hes> so that's in the sense of music and art but also these new issues that we're trying for example the concepts of tourism of memory you you know the idea is to help develop a tourism <hes> which helps to sensitize visitors to various countries around the world where there's already a lot of movement and we we are trying to rely on artistic insights as to how to make those experiences more accessible to ordinary people <hes> and i think this is all a very big role was for artists who have been very very generous in extending their support to us <hes> four events or advocacy mainly as the until reaching out to many many parts of the population. Can you talk a little bit onto obstacles encountered and <hes> what our future prospects of the project the difficulties of course are the fact that it took a long time for us to <hes> billions the body of knowledge we have an international scientific committee tea and it took time of course to build these specialists that who come from very different backgrounds and regions <hes> in fact they are this scientific the committee meeting today in china and then on where we launched the original project so <hes> you know when we met for the first time the project was conceived conceived in one thousand nine hundred ninety four in bene- it was widow and we have an event today in rita to commemorate that <hes> but <hes> ah the subject matter one of the challenges of course it's subject matter is very sensitive. It is very emotive. It is <hes> deeply deeply psychological. It is traumatic. <hes> so the notion of bridging conversations of facilitating the exchange exchange is very very complicated. We were in a meeting in virginia last year where the estates monticello president lincoln and so on are very active in the issue issue of reparations now but to get to that you have to come to tom <hes> with the legacy itself first of all and another another challenge is the acceptance of the recognition so we had someone come from for example the university of wisdom which is just understanding now that many of the oldest most wealthy families bristol made their money from the slave trade so the accountability <hes> understanding <hes> <hes> how this approach needs to be sensitive but very clear <hes> because it is about human dignity she and the end is very very complicated <hes> and then i think what we'd like to do you need to link to the fight against racism and discrimination because there are many new forms of enslavement and exploitation. I mean it's it's milt true <hes> that this is something of the past i think until the mid ninety s we thought of slavery as a thing of the past but we now understand from the human rights campaigners from many ngos there are many forms of contemporary slavery that still exists and there are many governments still working on anti slavery <hes> and i think this is a little bit the the future what we'd like to do is to understand given this relevant how we can really <hes> further. I think popularize is knowledge and focus for example on initiatives that helped cities to develop philip affirmative action policies how we can work with lawmakers to repair or correct historical distortions <hes> and how we can really <hes> put together coalitions of people who are committed to making a change in the spirit of the poor commitments commitments set any of the united nations but the broader community to human rights in this day and age. We believe that the burning issues that we face in today's the world if you read the headlines just today in fact the new york times <hes> this morning <hes> has an article on what they're calling sixteen nineteen projects which examines the legacy of slavery in america just today but if you look at equity <hes> development human rights cultural pluralism dialogue reconciliation conciliation most of all prevention. I think <hes> what some people have called the black hole in history. <hes> this is what we are dedicated zip through. This is why we have this international day to remind everyone and we look forward to close cooperation across the globe to make this really a marker of never again.
