"And I may Martinez The national reckoning over race in history is now playing out in the world of birds At issue the racist past of the 19th century naturalist and illustrator John James Audubon And PR's Melissa block reports Let's go out in the Maryland Woods surrounded by golden tulip trees and the earthy scent of spice bush Oh my gosh it's just such a beautiful fall day The colors are finally turning I've come here with Lisa Alexander I'm the executive director of the Audubon naturalist society Well for the short term for the short term because the Audubon naturalist society which serves the D.C. region recently voted to drop Audubon's name No question Audubon was a brilliant artist He created gorgeous life sized paintings of hundreds of bird species so vivid and detail they seem to fly off the page but also He was a white supremacist He was an owner of slaves He was a desecrator of skulls of Native American and Mexican people All this has drawn new scrutiny as this country reexamines its history Should we have known earlier I think that's possibly true that we should have known earlier But now that we know we have to act Once you know it you can't un know it And so Alexander says the soon to be other than Audubon naturalist society will take the next year or so to choose a new name The only thing I can probably say for sure is we won't name ourselves after another human being Alexander's organization is independent of the national Audubon society which has hundreds of chapters around the country and hasn't yet decided whether to keep or drop Audubon's name Jamal Nelson the society's chief diversity equity and inclusion officer says the national group will take the next 12 to 18 months to hear from stakeholders on that but he says the conversation has to be broader I don't want us to stand really close to a pixelated painting and focus on one little dot There's so much more work than that Which means says Clemson university ornithologist jeju lanham absolutely changed the name Drop Audubon But don't stop there To leverage John James Audubon into something greater than he ever could have been is to take a bitter history and to make some sweeter future out of it To make identity and inclusion central he says to the mostly white homogenized world of conservation as a black man lanna is constantly aware of how race and his passion for birding collide I can have a really high end pair of binoculars around my neck I can have a high end scope on my shoulder And if I walk through the wrong neighborhoods then bad things can happen to me This spring lanham's peace and Audubon magazine titled what do we do about John James Audubon helped kick this national conversation into high gear Lanham wrote Audubon's racism is the albatross rotting around the necks of those who would hold him in reverence It is past smelling foul and beginning to wreak That piece drew outrage from some who revere Audubon lanham is undeterred Use this moment he says to widen the mission And maybe it's going to serve birds better but it's also going to serve humanity better On the wall of his tiny writing studio in South Carolina lanham has hung an Audubon print It shows a Quartet of songbirds bright yellow breasted chats Two in flight and two tending to their nest which is festooned with wild roses Beauty and bitterness lanham says a reminder that genius can wrap itself around a rotten core Melissa bloch NPR news This is morning edition from NPR news I mean Martinez in Culver City California And I'm Noelle king in Washington D.C. the Cuban government is using police security forces and civilian supporters to crush not dissent but plans for dissent They're blocking people in their homes to keep them from protesting in the streets CNN correspondent Patrick Altman is in Havana this morning Patrick Good morning I want to start by stepping back This past summer there were some of the biggest protests in Cuba in decades Those were very significant What were Cubans protesting They took to the streets by the thousand across this island in a way that we have never seen Cubans do before since the Cuban revolution to demand more political freedoms a better economic conditions less censorship really just expressing their frustration at decades of Communist Party rule here Of course the Cuban government claims that this is all plotted by the United States and as a result of U.S. economic sanctions but the Cubans we spoke to in July who were risking everything to God to the streets simply said that they had gotten completely fed up and had nothing left to lose Okay so that was July Now we're in November and protest organizers clearly wanted a repeat But the Cuban authorities appear to have gotten out in front of them The Cuban government was right at this time First because the organizers tried to get permission which is actually allowed under the Cuban constitution to protest and with the Cuban government did with that advance notice was deployed police and plain clothes state security agents across the island We saw activists prevented from allowed to leave their homes by mobs of angry government supporters There were other people who were arrested other activists And unlike those spontaneous protests in July the Cuban government knew when this protest would take place many of the people who were going to be going out were and that allowed them to essentially stop before it even started these protests At the center of this story is a playwright of all people tell us about him Yeah I interviewed Garcia aguilera at his apartment just a few weeks ago And despite the Cuban government claims that he's been bankrolled by the U.S. and his quote mercenary junior lives in a really rundown part of Havana He's not the typical dissident He's a playwright who's won awards from the government for his work and he's a critic of the U.S. embargo on Cuba but also believes that Cubans have a right to demand changes from their government and this is what he told me So junior is saying there is that the government's actions have shown there's no rule of law The fact they prevented from leaving his house that there's no possibility for citizens to dissent to those empowers what he said to me And so he really says that he's holding up a mirror to the government and it's their actions that make the best case for what he's saying about Cuba's system So this is very interesting This tactic by authorities instead of letting people out in the streets and then cracking down on them as we often see all over the world in protest we're going to barricade them in their houses Is it working and do you think people will continue protesting very quickly It worked certainly over the last several days because in July Cuba's president had to get on TV as authorities were kind of standing around not knowing what to do and he said I'm giving you the order to combat This time the order was already given government supporters blocked junior from leaving his apartment On Sunday I talked to a one self described revolutionary named Eduardo and he said to me that he was keeping bloodshed between government supporters and government critics from taking place That's the kind of tension there is right now in Cuba and that tension is not going anywhere Patrick Ahmed CNN's Havana based correspondent Thank you Patrick Thank you so much With close to $2 billion devoted to renewable power the newly.

"This is all things considered from NPR news I'm Ari Shapiro and I melt the Chang Rickety boats packed with people are increasingly getting intercepted in the ocean between Haiti and the U.S. Hundreds of Haitians desperate to flee their country have been caught on the water just in recent weeks And authorities in the Caribbean region are concerned it could be a new smuggling trend Patrick Altman is CNN's international correspondent in Havana bureau chief and he joins us now to talk more about this Welcome back to the program Thank you so much So can you just describe this journey that these migrants are taking exactly what kind of boats are they using You know I don't even think it's fair to say that their boats when you see some of the images of people in overcrowded vessels that they've built themselves in a lot of cases and we're talking in recent weeks about in a more than a 101 case the U.S. coast guard interdicting a boat full of about 200 people aboard one boat and these are boats that don't have proper navigation Oftentimes their engines break down That's why we've seen some arriving here by accident in Cuba And this is very very dangerous at any time You know that many of these people are trying to navigate the ocean without proper equipment without proper navigation Is there evidence that smugglers are involved Absolutely And people have to pay hundreds of dollars sometimes Sometimes more to get on these boats and usually it's more often than not a journey that ends in failure And the people who are willing to make this journey are these mostly families or mostly single adults You see young children a lot of times but I think it's people that have one thing in common which is they just don't want to be in hay despite the danger of getting a boat like this and spending days at sea and what we've heard from people is that the economic conditions in Haiti are forcing them to leave the chaos It's been caused by the pandemic a real sharp increase in gang violence in Haiti gangs that oftentimes it seemed to control parts of Haiti more than the government does And then of course the earthquake and the political instability caused by the assassination of the president jovenel moise in July Many reasons for them to want to flee Haiti Do we know are they specifically trying to reach the U.S. Or is the immediate objective just to get out of Haiti no matter where they ultimately end up Nearly everyone that we've heard from said that their ultimate goal is to get to the U.S. and we've seen that with the people making the land crossing who might have spent a couple of years first in countries like Brazil or Chile before making that journey north Well as this migration continues I'm curious what are the governments in Cuba and The Bahamas saying right now How are they framing the situation How much are they willing to help and absorb some of this migration They're very concerned in The Bahamas where the general consensus is that they do not want Haitian migrants The bahamians feel that Haitians are there to take their jobs and they received about a thousand Haitian migrants in a period of about a week in the beginning of this month and most of them have been sent back at this point and The Bahamas is asked for the United States help from the coast guard But they've also said that there needs to be a wider regional conversation than something that they said in Cuba which is not a place of Haitian migrants who really anywhere else is trying to get to because Cuba has its own economic difficulties right now but all the same Cuba said in the last week or so that they've received about 400 Asian migrants just people that got lost or their boats broke down and the Cuba says that they will feed and clothe and give them proper medical care before they send these migrants a back So I think there's a lot of concern in countries across the region not just in the United States So they're calling on the U.S. not just to interdict and deport people but to try to come up with a long-term strategy to deal with some of the root causes of why so many people are right now seem to be wanting to risk everything to leave to live Haiti you know no matter the cost That is CNN's international correspondent Patrick Altman Thank you so much for joining us It's a pleasure.
