"Changes everything right 'cause I'm sitting in Washington DC inside a classroom predominantly, boys will let will levels. This would grade level. This was middle school middle school aid. So six, seven eighth but a lot of these students who have been put out of the traditional English classes and set to me because it's like, Oh, a black man side of the school building as not the Gym Teacher Custodian, Security Guide Edo, right that there's. Anything wrong with those roles. But when you walk in schools, you can kind of see patents and then also because I wasn't a teacher I felt like they was kind of like Oh, we got a place that we can put these students that seemingly nobody else wants to teach and he's going to deal with them. Let them have at it. So when I saw how they were grieving pock now mind you these are. Eleven twelve thirteen fourteen year old young people they weren't old enough to have gone to concerts. Mid Nineties someone who may not have had cable. So dated necessarily have the exposure, but they had the music, and so we just started what I call beats to the rhyme where we started Davin into the lyrics in having conversations, and then they started writing and so that started my artistry as a writer because I started writing poems to them but I use the pseudonym because there was a little a little hesitant. So I grew up watching transformers so. I call myself optimists because the opportunity in time for us in Tim. My name was in the middle. Got It. So they would ask who was this poet and I'm like, Hey, you know this is who I got when I was researching putting together my lessons and it wasn't until the end of the year that I told them that it was me right and so then the students was like Yo Mister Tim you Kinda Nice like you should continue this. Then while at my after school program, we took it a step further. We said we will record. In. So in working with them, that's where I started rhyming data because I was Rodman with them because we had to see, is it even possible to record the entire hip hop album without cursing, but still being true to what we're feeling at the time? and. So it I I'm I'm just helping them still playing the back is a community based project and we had donated studio time donated producers. So when we're going to the studio, I'm telling them by young people listen we gotta respect the time you gotta be ready. You gotta hit it acquitted like. Almost gotta be one one take J. with this because I don't want them to regret letting us in. and. So it was one of my one of my students who probably was my best MC and he accidentally forgot half of his rump. He, he forgot the paper. So there was a sixteen. Bar, space yeah. We needed to record the saw is so the producer was a friend of mine and so literally was you'll tim. You gotta fill it like what? So I just went in. And just came off the head and just continued on with it thinking that. Okay. Maybe we'll get a chance to come back in and fill it in with the verse, but it ended up making a cut and so that was really where I kinda started this artists side of just emceeing as well as with a familiar with Toni, Blackman of course. Yeah for sure yet. So Freestyle Union also started in. DC ninety four. So I was around it but duck said in it at the time not even realizing that it was activating that same gift inside of me right. I just was a rounded any immersing myself in it but once I started working with the teenagers it came out as a way to connect with them. That's funny because I said in the beginning, what was it chicken or the egg? Well. Yeah Like both Kinda yeah it. Really it really was kind of came and that was why I really wanted to tell it the way it is because. One wouldn't be here without the other. That's interesting. That's because you know a Lotta Times it'll be yeah. It used to be an artist found my way into education or you know an educator you know this was of simultaneous and again. But if anything I would say that I was in an educational bind right that I was able to get through by tapping into an artist that I didn't even realize existed inside of. ME. Well hip hop is the mother of invention. Yeah. So I ended up I ended up being educated while educating that's what's up and now take it back to Howard. The conference real quick. That was a pretty forward thinking concept at the time Oh. Yes. Without without a doubt every day was because it was it was a group of US led by assistant named April silver. Razz Baraka who is now the mayor Mave Newark. They were they were student governments, president and vice president in. So for lack of better terminus conference was really our capstone project. So we will all part of the student government. We will working with a brother name Hack Islam who had a record company and we just connected with some people and we also was able to take advantage of. That time was the heightened time for college reps for record companies. Record companies will break artist by having them. Come do Promo shows at colleges and things like that. I was radio was big college radio was big because college was the place where. You can get the Max out of your promotional dollars because if I come to how it and I rocket. Than the students who represent all different cities across the country and even beyond will then take it back in say yo I sold as a group called lease a new school all que eras one came through here will allow seafood came through here, and so now I'm a more attentive when they're out come out when watching on TV wraps. Person came to how? Where in also ninety one. It was the bow highlighting all of the careers that were behind the scenes like you think about it. You Anaya old enough to remember when the subscript when video came out didn't tell you who was directed by it just said the site of the song and the record company and the artists that you remember having to pull out the the information from the cassette. To figure out like whole liner notes the Line Hills like Oh this person produce that or what is in anr what is public? What is the publicists and all those other things in in how does journalism play into that? So this conference was also an opportunity for individuals to see different career paths. If you have a passion for music, if you're creative, we would have. Fashion, show that was attached to it. So it really helped us kind of our is that we could be a part of this culture without necessarily being the front facing artists that we see similarly to how now you have all these different careers within the sports industry that people can attach to because they have the love for sports, but they never was sitting on. The bench as a professional athlete or something like.

"You know there's all this amazing stuff. This happened throughout the has ten years with the line of. Your point before it was like you know when people talk about underground underground hip hop and independent hip hop and all that stuff you know a lot of times is there's there's so much talented people. End so much garbage in boating when mainstream on the ground. So it's like, there's The traditions of somebody shows like the lineup which we are following a tradition of reminds me of nurses lounge and stuff like that right? Right Oh. Yeah. And you know against a is, but you had cast like you know quality and somebody that going to these open mic lounge you had You know the ones in Philly with the roots crew. You know like there's all these different people that before they were known and famous or technically become mainstream in a way are going to these events i. Definitely an important part of the culture of the history. So view I, think it gets written off lot, and again, you guys were a big part of it and and that again that parlayed into a lot of the work, the Banco fuse went on to do always kind of politically minded in an abandoned background and some of the music you made we've talked. We've talked a little bit about some early. you were playing music or rock for Razz Baraka. The mayor of Newark during his campaign, you were kind of helping artists you know. Ambassador for that. For that campaign and you would incorporate some of the these ideas into the music over time Did that at some point become. Sort of more the focus either as the band or you yourself. we'll talk about obviously newsbeat changed that to. Specifically for that. That lane but I think I. Think it was always a natural part. You know like I think definitely throughout the years it became. Maybe became more, but you know it's always been important and it's never been like a It wasn't a conscious effort to be like we should do this more. We should talk about this more or less but you know speaking of IRS, bureaucracy has. And so. His, you know his father, the late Great Mary Baraka was a you know a personal. Hero and swords. Experts are player in the Banco. Fuse. So, because of that, even before you know even when I would just know somewhat of Mary brought it was you know through? That we started building, allow more writing some of our first some of the first few songs like love war the city was was written in it came out of conversations about. Organizing Aboud newer about. About you know a Rasp Baraka and you know his previous campaigns before he became mayor and stuff like that right? So yes, it was I've always been sort of been and been in the spirit of myself and the interested in you know in the DNA for sure. So of that some years past we're Rockin we're hanging out where I'm decent fail I this opportunity To Produce and and help at it and help dot co, create produce and put together along with a fantastic team. Over, at more creative studios, a production company out on Long Island they used to be the newspaper that I worked in when I was in journalism. and. We got this opportunity to create and put together this news this podcast called newsbeat. Newsweek really incredible blend of this. So when I talk about. The work being done by artists, and again, there are artists who run youth centers and youth programs and go out and campaign for. Officials and you know go out and speak about injustices, their artists. We see my son all the time we see a lot of people who are hip-hop. That are out there on the ground. What was great about the new beat? Is. That was a way for us to do it on the journalism tip in infusing podcast report reporting. Reporting on social. Justice. Issues. Music to IT SORTA like A. Schoolhouse Rock and away not I mean, like you t some concepts, you bring slight to some issues through music you we've a musical bed underneath which is part of what I do, and then we said let's get independent hip hop artists to come and spit lyrics that are specifically crafted for each one of these episodes. It's a really hard concept for people never heard newsbeat to understand I sorta like democracy now and black thought had a podcast baby, but it's not like Hamilton, we're not rapping the news. We're doing solid high level journalists reporting. So we have interviewed shouts to shed and Chris from newsbeat the editors they're going to be on the show by the way to talk about this in depth we're interviewing folks Dr. Cornell West. Rosa Clemente Chris Hedges Real you know thought leaders and people on the front lines of a of of social justice issues experts. We've had a bunch of people on talking about coronavirus and how it disproportionately affects communities of color all these things we would over music to set up. And then we have an artist come in and rap about the topic you were artists and residents. In fact, our debut in Hog Bureau artists for that series tested out on a series that we've now on episode that we call Mlk Day Junior, what they don't teach you in school that looks at the legacy of Martin Luther King and how he's often. Whittled down to I have a dream and no turn, the other cheek and. Let's keep it moving. You know there's much more to the mangams that King Legacy, the poor people's campaign him being assassinated in part for it. You know what I mean. We delve into in this musical journey, and again you show proof of concept that you wrote lyrics specifically to. Exemplify this concept. What is the news beat podcast meant to you. Man News podcasts means a lot to me. It's. It's I'm definitely a fan. Also I always say of even the episodes that I'm not on. On, the show I rotating a cast of of a, we have another artist's residence shops liquid. Was No. shots to all the artists that participated we've had rebelled again we've had a rabbi dockside we'd had Cyrus Anthem We've had a Napoleon legend at that anybody So again, my experience with folks like you that are really brilliant sound lyricist Jaka, spit and battle, and talk about you know all the rapidy wrap things but you could also put lender really great perspective so it's been writing about. Issues like mass incarceration. The drug war that's been heavy sometimes. Yeah I think it's been It's been crazy because remember the dope you know it's been helpful and challenging a good way. You know because when I first started doing newsbeat I, remember I've been already writing recording you know and touching on different topics right now really having a narrow narrow subject matter you know but but I started doing.

When President Trump announced last month that he's ordering the withdrawal of US forces from Syria. He said ISIS was defeated. Vice President Mike Pence repeated that claim today even as is claimed responsibility for an attack in the northern Syrian town of man bitch that explosion killed four Americans. And at least a dozen Syrians NPR Pentagon. Correspondent Tom Bowman is here in the studio to tell us more. Hi, tom. What do we know about this attack? Well, the US military released a statement saying to American soldiers were killed in a bombing along with an American contractor. He was an interpreter. I'm told also a defense department employee was killed three soldiers were injured. In one official tells me that three soldiers are in stable condition, and again, at least a dozen or so civilians were killed. According to local reports, we have not seen a US death toll in Syria comparable to Afghanistan or Iraq. This is unusual. You've been demand bridge. Describe the place where this happened and explain why you troops are patrolling their well amend bitches just nineteen miles from the Turkish border was retaken from ISIS way back in August of two thousand sixteen in less February with the US military in which remarkable as we walked around without body armor. It was remarkably calm. It's vibrant bustling city has a huge market selling all sorts of goods and produce. We went to a girl school. Everybody was happy back in school went to government offices talked to all sorts of people. You would never get a sense that there was a shot fired in anger there. Now US troops have been working in the city with local military council. So there is that presence in the city, and they're also patrolling were Turkish troops outside the city. But I remember even back then residents in the US military were saying that some ISIS fighters were kind of slipping back into the city. So that was a concern even about a year ago. So tell us about these statements from the administration that ISIS is. Defeated and how that can possibly be reconciled with the fatal attack that we saw today. It can't and first of all ISIS has been defeated. And no one seems to know why the president said that and just today as you mentioned vice President Mike Pence made a similar statement. Let's listen, the caliphate has crumbled, and ISIS has been defeated again. Again, that's not accurate. Most of the caliphate has been retaken. But there's still some left is a very tough fight in northeastern Syria along the Iraqi border there are at least a couple of thousand ISIS fighters, holed up desperate and fighting hard. The US is still bombing ISIS targets in Syria. They put out the numbers of airstrikes every week or so so it just makes no sense. Why these statements are coming? And I'm told initially the president wanted all US troops out in a month. Officials said they need more time in God it, but it withdrawal has begun. Some US equipment has been moved open at this point. Known any of the two thousand US troops have left when you talk to the military leaders who are actually waging the fight against ISIS. What did they tell you? It'll take to defeat them for real on the ground. Well, they say it will take at least two three more months again. They're dug in in this area called hygiene, close to the Iraqi border. They've built berms and tunnels and have bombs ready to go off and cars. So it's it's a tough fight. And they have suicide bombers as well, it's going to take some time in also after the caliphate comes to an end, then the question is then what the US says it's necessary to train thirty or forty thousand local security forces. That's only just begun NPR Pentagon. Correspondent Tom Bowman. Thank you. You. Welcome. President Trump's determination to pull US troops out of Syria despite that ongoing violence, we just heard about is costing him among his most loyal supporters evangelical Christians, several evangelical leaders have criticized the planned withdrawal saying it could leave Christians in Syria vulnerable to attack NPR's. Tom Joscelyn reports this latest violence shows that ISIS in Syria is still a force to be feared and given its past attacks on them Syrian Christians have reason to worry. Today's news came just as the open doors organization, which tracks persecution of Christians around the world issued its annual list of countries where Christians are endanger opened doors CEO, David curry says a security vacuum in Syria would endanger minorities there, especially Christians left to protect themselves. Christians in Syria will become extinct there's just so few of them now. So we're gonna need the US or others to protect those religious minorities are.

The Christian broadcasting network founded by the conservative televangelist, Pat Robertson is mostly friendly to Donald Trump, but CBS White House. Correspondent Jennifer Wishaw. Last week saw a serious problem with Trump's plan for Syria for now, it appears US policy is putting two thousand years of Christian history and tradition at risk. Jennifer wish on CBS news. And there was even harsher criticism from the conservative Family Research Council to top officers wrote last month that a US withdraw from Syria with deal, quote incalculable blow to our professed concern for Christians, we must not do it. They said the worry is that when U S troops leave Turkish forces or their proxies will come after the Christian and other minority communities there. Thus Amish shock president of the Syriac national council. The Christian group had just left Syria last month when Trump announced his Palau plan that announcement was made I was getting called from Syriac Christians, some who and worried and wanted to know if I had any information, they were desperate the Syria.

They still speak Aramaic the language of Jesus and they have suffered from Turkish attacks in the past most notably in the early twentieth century. There's also a small Kurdish Christian population in northern Syria. Many of them evangelical icon Erica MIR a former opposition member in the Turkish parliament says these Christian Kurds are already the target of Turkish propaganda. We see conspiracy theories about a global push to establish a Christian curious state, which is of course, nonsense Christians.

The Trump administration has told Turkey to leave those vulnerable groups alone after the US leaves. But the warnings have mostly been rebuffed earn. Amir now a fellow at the foundation for defensive democracies notes that in March when Turkish troops entered the Kurdish town of African in Syria, they enforces allied with them looted property and caused Kurds to flee so far the Turkish government has not given any assurances to the Syriac.
