New Orleans musician offers kids trumpets for guns
"Now a story about a trumpeter who is hoping that music might help reduce gun violence. My name is Lamar Allen, trumpeter from New Orleans, Louisiana producers, songwriters, saying Last week, Alan learned of a shooting in his city. A nine year old boy, Devante Bryant was killed. I have a nine year old son. So for me, it just hit me different, you know. He wanted to find a way to get guns out of the hands of kids. Has trump is laying around and I know for me that Trump has saved me. So he posted on social media and said to all the youth of New Orleans, bring me a gun and I'll give you a trumpet. No questions asked. I wanted to build a relationship on trust with the kids, so that They wouldn't have to worry about getting into trouble. The musician called the city's mayor and got the police to agree that they would take the guns from him without asking for any details. And I say this in I have a different connection with these kids because I grew up like them. I know what they're going through. I know the type of environment that they're in and they aren't bad. Kids just dealt into bad circumstances. They are trying and wants him to do other things, but it's nothing for them to do. So far, Alan has taken in four guns and given away for trumpets. The first gun that I collected was from a girl like a little girl. And it was the only grand I was fully loaded and I just was like, man like this is a look. I would never suspect that she will have this. And she was the most excited about getting it gave with a trumpet. He has the information. If you want to get lessons, you could reach out to one of these teachers. They'll be willing to probably saved the situation. Yeah, I'd probably say the situation. Since he ran out of instruments. Alan started an online fundraiser. He has raised more than $10,000 for music supplies, and people have also donated their own instruments. That trumpet was the first thing I showed me. Oh, I really don't have to be here. It's really a whole other world out there. And Alan is hoping that this instrument will have a similar impact for kids in New Orleans today, so if I can create those little opportunities for one of two or three of them, they can actually bring that back. So their neighborhood and they were all over. That's the voice of trumpeter Shemar Allen, who is trying to reduce gun violence in his community in New Orleans.

Yeah well we've connected online and you talk about some really important things just from from the perspective of being a therapist and also a human and I thought okay. Let's let's get together and talk about body image and the postpartum period because that is very much on your mind right now is that right. Yes definitely yeah. I am ten weeks outright now with my new baby and also have a two year old so I still kind of feel like I'm in the postpartum period with her to even though some people might disagree with that But I still feel very much like a new mother to both of them. Yeah Yeah Okay so talk about who you are in your background what you do professionally and then we'll dive in topic. Sounds good so I am a licensed clinical social worker and used to say I was a licensed scalzo worker in Louisiana but I just moved Tennessee But for the last almost ten years I've been in New Orleans Louisiana and that's where I got my graduate degree and just moved to Chattanooga Tennessee to be closer to my family. Meanwhile I raised these. Two girls My husband moved. We're altogether but My family lives here and so right now. I'm not working a whole lot. I'm seeing a few clients like in Tele therapy capacity from home So that's what's happening right now. But what like led me to this? Work in journey I around the age. Fourteen fifteen started struggling with OCD related issues and started going to therapy and loved therapy. Knew that it was probably going to be calling passion for me and it has been and so I went to college studied technology. Ocd got better for the most part And then when I went to Grad school I started becoming really interested in addictions and still anxiety and depression and related issues and once I started you know once I graduated Grad School and started my first jobs. I started really obsessively restricting and wants. Take yes food and once. I started that that lasted for about three years. And I mean after that I started to run a started to get help for it and once I went into. I didn't do a an impatient program but I did. Iop stuff and that led me like recovery myself has led me to be really really interested in eating disorder recovery and body image recovery for everybody and then out in a broader topic just disordered eating end health in general Because I think somebody that everybody faces even if they're not clinically struggling with the eating disorder of some kind And also my eating disorder weld in with OCD A lot. So that's what led me to place And still passionate about working in that area especially with having maybe girls. Yeah Okay so you have your own history and and then you've had years of studying in school and then working as a therapist and then Becoming a new mom Taco anything relevant in your story as far as like. What's it been like to be in recovery or recovered? I'm not sure what wording you like to use it From an eating disorder and then kind of going into new phases of life like like motherhood and the end postpartum. So heart of my story has been that I knew that I wanted to be a mom but I also knew I couldn't be a mom unless I was recovered from my eating disorder. And so that is what led me to seeking out. How because they knew at some point I wanted to have children in so basically after I got married I decided to. I realize that it wasn't just an. I want to be thin for my wedding issue. It was a bigger issue for me and decided than our would've been twenty sixteen so three and a half years. I decided that I wanted to make this better for myself that I don't pass on like really toxic ways of thinking to children and so that is what led me to kind of kind of the catalyst that threw me into recovery and so I got really lucky. I do identify as recovered struggle. Sometimes but I don't utilize behaviours in the slightest any longer and most of my thoughts able to Kinda Zap pretty quickly when they come up once. I did get help. I got pregnant pretty quickly after that so abou A year it wasn't very long about a year after I started feeling much more normal and better pregnant and obviously you know. Weight gain is a huge component of getting pregnant in the postpartum period. And while that was hard for me it also felt

Mitch Landrieu On The South's Racial Divide... And How To Bridge It
"I'm John L. Hanson in junior and welcome to another addition of him black America on this week's program divided by design with the Honorable Mitch Landrieu former mayor of New Orleans in Black America. You know so you know. We took all that information and said you know what are we gonNa do and one of the things we WANNA do is set up of an organization that helps number one. Educate most Americans about what the real history of our country is so that they can begin to understand institutional racism which clearly exists. Secondly we are going to Use Art Music Culture Sports to help change those stores and bring people together. We're going to do. Is We want to help. Train leaders and communities about what an equity agenda agenda would look like how equality and equity of two different things. And that if you really mean that everybody should have an equal opportunity that you have to design systems to do it and effectively. The conclusion was big picture was that the country is the way it is because we designed it this way and if we're divided you know somebody designed it so that we can be divided and if we want at the beach gather we got a redesign. It we gotta fix what we broke going up in the politically active and socially conscious family. Ms Landrus political roots. Run deep in Louisiana. Lisi Anna Way served two terms as governor and sixteen years in the state legislature and eight years as mayor of New Orleans to this any as seen seen firsthand how segregation and racism as affected communities in this country and particularly in the south over the course of year. His team met with people where they he lived. They traveled to twenty communities across thirteen southern states. They visit diverse parts of the region geographically demographically and culturally along their journey they had discussions in many different settings from one on one interview to small groups and roundtables to focus groups to community listening sessions. The capstone of their research is eighteen. Hundred Person Survey across the stage. They visited the report title divided by designs. The cavs for discussion or how. The American south experience issues of race and class in their communities. Recently in Black America spoke with Mayor Landrieu born and bred New Orleans Louisiana. The Anna one of nine children. We'd be my brothers and sisters. We got thirty eight kids and been here my whole life. There was an idea. What was I going up in New Orleans with nine kids families? You got to get to the front of the line as fast as you can get there. It was a I lived in a in a great neighborhood. We played street ball all the time. came from a big family. You know born and raised the and it was just a just a Lotta fun growing up. It's hard once you grew up in New Orleans to live anywhere else. 'cause wait okay. I'm sure everybody everybody feels good about the neighborhood. Do they grow up in what we we had a good time. What was it about your family and politics? You know it's an interesting. My Dad was a was a poor kid. He didn't hardly Nichols Rub together. Did know anybody grew up in a house that was about eighteen feet wide and sixty feet deep and live right across the street from from a cemetery grew up in a store room of his mom. Is You know house where she was. selling stuff to folks in the neighborhood he got around. You know after I got out of law school. Who figured that he wanted to try to do something good and ran for office and you know from there the whole family? Has You know based on what my mom and dad's work has been been kind. Kevin Gage the public service. Now not all of my brothers and sisters are in elected office. But you know they. They have spent their time. You know kind of following the lead of trying to give back where they could. In in your opinion what makes New Orleans such a vibrant city and people want to visit as often as possible. Well you've been here. Yeah you know we were talking a little bit Before your daughter went to school here this is a we celebrate it out three hundred dollars bursary this year. We have always been a very diverse place rich culture. You know history is such that and this is part of one of the efforts. I'm working on it we were. We were a huge Originating spot for slavery in America we also had the influence of the French the Spanish German. It was because of bovine. History is sorted history in some parts glorious than the others it has been a melting pot. That's reflected the soul of the country very culturally rich culturally deep and it has just been a really interesting place to live. You know I like to think of losses At least reflecting both burst both both the best and the worst of America because I- diversity from the beginning has been Great strength and You know it's it's it's got. His problems bought thought. You know. It is very reflective of the full diversity of what we hope that. America's GonNa be one day we're new became mayor of New Orleans. The city was experiencing just after Katrina. Give us a snapshot of how the city has progressed. Since that time. Well everybody remembers. I mean if it's almost like when nine eleven hit you remember where you were. Most people remember where they were. When Katrina hit? I mean it was a defining moment for us because the whole city was destroyed. I mean we. We got beat to death by that storm. I mean literally. We lost eighteen hundred of our brothers and sisters and bothered fathers aunts and uncles and kids every physical structure in the city. Almost underwater seventeen feet of water for weeks. I mean we had to rebuild this thing from nothing and you know like when when you're in a tragedy you come together because you have to you know you you better you better find somebody that can lift you up. You're not GonNa make it and you better listen body else up. But they're not Michael Baker and out of that tragedy. The people of New Orleans you know had a common focus and we came together. We had to rebuild all of our schools. We rebuilt the hospitals. We're opening up a brand new airport Next week with the rebuild all of our schools and we had to get our feet back underneath us and so you know although it was a very tragic tragic moment in the city miraculously. I mean the people found a way to rise above lots of different things. That separate us and rebuild the city and so the city is doing really really well. Now it is. It's further along than I think. People expected it to be. I think people now can look at the complications in Puerto. Rico go on in other places. It's hard to come back when you get beat. You know by by a natural catastrophe like that you'll see these wildfires in California put some communities. He's on the back one of the interesting things about it and this is something that we've all known is that people had stuff before the storm had an easier time coming back then people. That didn't have stuff. You know. So generation wealth and resilient to the communities are all very much an important part of. You know making sure that that you're ready to come back and it's been a little bit uneven but you know the city if you came here you'd be surprised at how how much progress has been in the last thirteen years the sand obviously with the rebuilding of New Orleans. You had a team. Well who are some of the other individuals that one part of the city government that you leaned upon on to get advice and insight. Well the truth is and I'm not trying to be cute here but the answer is everybody in the the only way that the city could come back was by having everybody in the world and help us so we got huge numbers of a financial and philanthropic donations from other countries Um working with the president of the United States was really really important in his cabinet. Getting the state government the local government but on the ground down on the ground having the faith based Community Mutiti the not for profit community you know individuals at all wanted to help everybody in kind of deal and You know there was so many people it'd be hard to call out. I want to but literally as I was the one of the most blessing. Blessed things was no matter who restarted. The answer was always yes. And that's why New Orleans feel so thankful to the rest of the country for all that that you guys gave us and so you know we want people to come visit and see it you know. I think you'll be surprised. You know we're like any other big city in America we have challenges and that will be here before Katrina and we're trying to figure them out from housing. The transportation redoing the criminal justice system all of those things. We still have great challenges with. But we're better off than we were before the storm.

don't think there was even a draft I mean because it can't be by we forget a leasing back like that you had to have this belief this passion that it could happen something great can happen you have to have that sucks what do you do not feel that way the error message the game the reason that she's not I mean there was somebody that even said the if the south what if I mean was it in jest

sure done the bye week they should often all the bye week lost another game so they could play just like whatever the ravens Baba by we killed him and then they they they came out in just I'm in so long I mean absolute slaughter house on special teams it was working for them that fake punch stop by Sorenson is back massive I was just I was just died right well homes that would do whatever you want it he drags tell I don't know how we knew what to keep its toll on the ground that long to be on the behind the line of scrimmage on a little dump off the Kelsey Travis Kelsey people call was the most overrated player all of that this was like four touched it was insanity I couldn't even fathom of they would be able to do that for four quarters just a modest what a hundred it was for a hundred points if they were playing like that before how do you think I thought patching holes was so excited on the sideline or not so excited but so raw raw the silent when they're down twenty four nothing because he was like well I mean I just get to throw every single play now and I know that this defense six soon so we have to act like a little this will give the strat well coach Andy Reid elsewhere in San Pedro we don't have to act like reply just they know it we know it let's go ahead and do it and boy what a team to deal with the weapons that the apps that I think Travis Kelsey I think the timing is lost in the thing is George Kendall had such a massive George Kendall had such a massive year just so good so so good for good reason hello there is some cool dude had a hell of a year but kind of forget so I think that you can see is a due to your army and he's on a a good outfit he blocks anyone near national does what I'm talking about is an offense of threat Kelsey is a guidance these athletic he scored a lot yesterday found ways to get open in its entirety kills on a team you know him off the point which is wild because I honestly would say that if tiring kill wanted to be he would be the greatest part return history of football if you want to be but it was like you with all those weapons that they have Andy Reid's ability to just draw up difference concepts and all that stuff it's just that was in St so watch and I'm so happy it happened in front of the kingdom because those fans whatever they got when it started feeling like they were back that decibel level there is even a sign it's a decibel up what some people like it in Kansas city they're like listen decibel up now's the time they ran a fireworks what you said he ran out of fireworks play four quarters it was for a hundred points it was scored a hundred points just if they would play four quarters like a play and the only way the Titans Hey Hey what's up with the Titans we can arrange for like the way the people right right but five hundred yards for twelve point five hundred yards they were they were inside the Tennessee forty eight times all points Derrick Henry what what do you do where were you what a Errol Thomas said well Thomas said those guys up there look like eighty something I'm paraphrasing here those guys up there knowing the delay one tackle it will be different here and I Hey I agree that Baltimore Ravens differences been insane but then a situation happen with Earl Thomas and you can't help but think that there can remember him saying that while he was gone for the second show which wasn't it wasn't needed but he just pushed him in his back to help him run further ahead Patty slipped on some of his legs you just hit like you're you're hanging out of something and hits I mean he's just what do you do and nobody this is he's gonna be the running back that brings back the massive salary contract offer before having to hold out stuff I think because he deserves now that often to lines very good they got the Los Angeles rams died at the rams one page Taylor the one is all the way back that often lines very good but they can just control the ball whenever they want in one ten hill somehow someway has become this incredible quarterback having good touch but a good decision maker so my call my game manager whatever but every quarterbacks again manager if you manage.

So he probably feels comfortable by coming in spending more time with you guys. So most experts and even psychologists would say in that case to not really fight.

If he feels more comfortable can go to sleep, you know, every now, and then is not that big of a deal the traditions will also say, that's okay.

Are you an American senior or a baby boomer who's thinking? We know what maybe definitely I don't wanna live in a nursing home, and I don't wanna live alone. So I'm looking for something different. And if so how has that worked out, and by the way, folks, I'm also curious to know, if you think the looking for these alternative housing arrangements is an indication that somehow in our infrastructure or our social safety net that press were failing American seniors to there's that downside that I want to address as well. And I'm joined today by Wendy by an glass, excuse me. She's a gerontologist and professor at the university of North Carolina Wilmington and professor glass before it turned back to you.

Yes, I am sixty five and I got a room ahead and had a roommate in a really long time. And it's almost always for financial reasons only, and it it definitely still is because I've got my family all around me in very near near me, grandkids and hit and everything. But I saw a I was thinking about it. 'cause I I had a twin bed given to me. And so. I saw you know, I looked around. So we'll maybe I should put somebody in that little room, and I had her in their empty closet, whatever. So I I looked on face on Craigslist.

But n glass let let me turn back to you. Now, there's Diana's sort of indicates to me that there are a lot of informal ways by which seniors have been looking for these looking for roommates or alternative housing arrangements. Do you have concerns about that? We sure as you mentioned in the beginning, and you could easily be taken advantage of and especially somebody who is more frail, and perhaps not thinking straight as they used to think. So yes, this is a concern. And that's where organizations like silver nest, and some of the others that are popping up around the country can be helpful in doing those background checks, and that kind of thing and even if you. Did it informally? Even if it if you met somebody news on they would be good. I think that should be kind of a standard practice to do, and they should be willing to do background checks and not just not. And then also when you come into a situation like that make some agreement maybe have a contract where you lay out what you expect. And what would be the kind of things would make you have to move out. Like if you started smoking in your room or something like that. Well, let's go to Brooke who's calling from Norfolk Virginia.

"I literally picked up the phone and call every contractor that I knew of not only in New Orleans, Louisiana, and in the entire south, trying to find a crane someone a crane, a crystal crane and then a crane. And here's the thing once the crane a crane operator. And they basically had sent a message to everybody that if you get involved in this, somebody that you know is going to get hurt or you're gonna lose business. Eventually, we found a number of businesses some outside some in the city that actually were able to do it after we put this huge security blanket around them, which of course, you know, had made us do it at night and made people cover. Her up their identities, the guy they're wearing bulletproof, vests helmets, and I'm sure they were right. They were. They were deathly afraid and rightly so because the security threats were real and they were imminent and the security measures we took, we took at the vice of the highest levels of security and what their reports that people were sending drone and wasn't a report. They were actually doing that. They had. They had drones that they were flying around the cranes and try to get him to stop. They actually got to one of the cranes early on and filled up. The guest thing was sand. I mean they were sabotaging, what was what was a legally government-sanctioned process now now I don't know what else you call that. I call that domestic terrorism. So eventually what we had to do for your life or your family's, I don't want us. There were there were imminent threats that have precautions would not have been taken. It would cause you to be afraid, but we did everything that you were supposed to do in those circumstances. And so I'm not trying to be cavalier about this, but my. Tile life. There have been innumerable death threats, and you take the appropriate concept precautions. And yeah, what I was more concerned about was the people who would not be that will work in this entire process that we're feeling very threatened the the two wonderful women that work at my front desk cats receive. Lots of really awful phone calls that we cave kept records of that would just visit. England, even imagine, hey, for you know, wanna listen to that kind of stuff. And so look, we worked through it the way we were supposed to. Nobody got hurt, and I think that when we saw him once later, what happened in Charlottesville, I think the precautions that we took in New Orleans, it became pretty clear to people that there really were imminent threats and that people can really get hurt. And of course, you know, in the south we have open carry. So there were people who on the cause that were bringing, you know, assault rifles and there and they were in open. And so the police did a really good job of making sure that the individuals who apart of taking down Nola that were coming, and then the anti groups was separated from each other that they were able to exercise their first amendment rights, and we were able to protect everybody. And the police chief and all of the security forces did a great job, a heightened sense of danger and also far more money was incre-. Well, yeah, it got to be three or four times the cost. It should have never been that way. Well, look at all the money. You've got to spin protecting peop-, correct.

We just got finished French quarter fest with thousands of people. We always do which necessary to protect people's well-being.
