interview With Nikki Giovanni
"Of the most striking things that just jumped out at me all the way through your writing and and writing about you and all the way to the latest volume of poetry published in two thousand thirteen is how from the very beginning you were held and cherished and taught by courageous loving women Your mother you were named your first name as yulon right yeah. It used to be when when mommy passed i I had it legally changed the nikki. Just because that's what everybody knows me. I would have never done when mommy was here. I wouldn't. I wouldn't want her to think i didn't want to carry her name. I'm rhonda junior. So how old were were you when you change your name legally ben mommy's been dead ten years so sixty two something like that sixty three years old. And how do you say your grandmother's name. Lavinia lavinia lavinia lavinia. Emma lou watson. Also that you were all sounds like foodies before the the word had been invented. Oh grandmother was a foodie and grandmothers. Friends were foodi. And of course i ended up. Living with grandma not ended up but Was was fortunate to live with grandmother. so mommy was a good cook because she was grandmothers daughter and My on an was a good cook Living with grandmother And i learned all of their tricks. My favorite was of course greens. And i'm still still still working on that because working making greens is one of life's difficulties. Just clean them and stuff. Well mommy mom and grandmother to you pull than to tie the stems and you put the leaves in and he uses stems to flavor and then you pull it out and so she was very good at that but the other thing. I was laughing and laughing about this. You didn't ask him about this. But in grandmother's day you know used to go the market and you bought a live chicken. Actually grandpa did the the marketing and he would bring it home and they put it in the backyard and then grandmother would go out saturday morning and we its neck but you learn to learn to do that and i guess i have learned to. It's something that i'm dealing with on another kind of level but for something to live something else usually dies. There's there's a transition is not something. I would have been able to even to say to you at Even fifty years ago my twenties. I wouldn't have it it's really It's been interesting You reported in nineteen forty. Three's that right And yes and you so you grew up in a i like this. You talk a lot about what we call the sixties what is called the sixties which which you really date from about nineteen fifty four to nineteen sixty eight Which was such a dramatic moment. I mean a lot of transition. I mean you've just been using that word one question. I ask people whoever been talking to you as you know how. Would you describe the religious and spiritual background of your childhood. And i wonder how you would start to talk about that. And i really mean the fullness of that you know that that your family but also that world do you came into I i grew up of course Baptist baptist mount zion baptist church but when when mommy married My father married we call them gusts because daddy gus. When mommy may gust they moved to cincinnati. Because he couldn't get a job he was college graduate. He couldn't get a job in knoxville and so they moved to cincinnati where he could get a job and mommy joined the Ame church but if we're just going to just kinda breeze on religion without getting into anybody's business you know. I recently have been fascinated with. Wyatt is that we don't actually look into the manger more. We always look at the cross. And i think that one of the problems with the manger is that we have to mary credit for bringing god to earth and The book that i'm working on right now actress called a good cry and it's just because Realize women keep a lot of things in them. I do know this for married. I'm gonna give credit having a baby hurts. I don't care who it is. A weird came from having a baby hurts. So i wanna give mary her. Craps and i also want to deal with the fact that as we are giving this birth part of the christian religion is supposed to do is give birth to a new human being you. Ask one kind of question. I don't know if i'm answering it. Strangely no but great. I think this question lands wherever in us. It wants to begin voice. I mean you you also want said you you said jos. Think it must have been a woman who developed the spiritual. Oh gosh when we look at savored which actually slavery is only going to be the end result. We have to look at the kidnapping in africa. We have to look at no matter. What the country. We have to look at the fact that somebody's sold and somebody purchased an and that just cannot be denied. We we're upset of course with the europeans because we say oh they create a slavery they might have but they didn't create the buying and selling of human beings that that had been going on for quite some time all over so we had the people coming across that ocean not knowing where they were going but knowing whatever it was they were not going to go back to where they used to be so somehow another. They had to make a decision. How do we go forward. But it had to be a woman because we're back to the manger we back to marry. We're back to this when women do it had to be a woman who said i need to settle my people down and when you consider there were a lot of languages. Going on yeah. She didn't speak english at that point. They didn't speak. Why healy at that point. They were in many languages. The only common language is going to be So when we get to going to ultimately become the united states these people had created a way to speak to themselves to each other through the language to spare chose. Yeah so when you were twenty five you road. I'm twenty five years old. A revolutionary poet. I- love seth. I want to ask you about the. The i love tacked on at the end of the sentence but i also want to ask you about what you meant at twenty five when you said you'll revolutionary poet and how you hey you look at that now as nikki. Giovanni quite a few years later i think twenty five was good but i always thought twenty five was one fourth of my life

Jim's Recovery Story
"I was born in a little town in virginia in an average religious home. My father a negro was a country physician. I remember in my early youth. My mother dress me just as she did. My two sisters. And i wore curls. Until i was six years of age at that time i started school. And that's how i got rid of the curls. I found that. Even then i had fears and inhibitions we live just a few doors from the first baptist church and when they had funerals i remember very often asking my mother whether the person was good or bad and whether they were going to heaven or hell i was about six then. My mother had been recently converted and actually had become a religious fanatic. That was her main neurotic manifestation. She was very possessive with us. Children another thing. That mother drilled me was a very puritanical point of view as to sex relations and as to motherhood and womanhood. I'm sure my ideas as to what life should be like. We're quite different from that. Of the average person with whom i associated later on in life that took its toll. I realized that now about this time an incident took place in grade school that i have never forgotten because it made me realize that i was actually a physical coward during recess. We were playing basketball. And i had accidentally trip to fellow just little larger than i was. He took the basketball and smashed me in the face with it. That was enough provocation to fight. But i didn't fight and i realized after recess. Why didn't it was fear that hurt and disturbed me a great deal. Mother was of the old school and figure that anyone. I associated with should be of the proper type of course in my day. Times had changed. She just hadn't changed with them. I don't know whether it was right or wrong but at least i know that people weren't thinking the same. We weren't even permitted to play cards in our home. But father would give us just a little tidy with whiskey and sugar and warm water now and then. We had no whiskey in the house. Other than my father's private stock. I've never seen him drunk in my life although he'd take a shot in the morning and usually one in the evening and so did i but for the most part. He kept his whiskey in his office. The only time. I have ever seen my mother take anything. Alcoholic was around christmas time when she would drink some eggnog or light wine. I remember my first year in high school. That mother suggested that. I do not join the cadet unit. She got a medical certificate. So that i should not have to join it. I don't know whether she was a pacifist. Or whether she just thought that in the event of another war it would have some bearing on my joining up about then too. I realized that my point of view on the opposite sex wasn't entirely like that of most to the boys. I knew for that reason. I believe i married at a much younger age than i would have had not been for my home training. My wife and i have been married for some thirty years. Now was the first girl that i ever took out. I had quite a heartache about her then because she wasn't the type of girl that my mother wanted me to marry in the first place she had been married before. I was her second husband. My mother resented it so that the first christmas after our marriage which was in may of nineteen twenty-three. She didn't even invite us to dinner. After our first child came my parents both became allies. But in later days after i became an alcoholic they both turned against me. My father had come out of the south and had suffered a great deal down there. He wanted to give me the very best and he thought that nothing but being a doctor would suffice on the other hand. I believe that. I've always been medically inclined though i have never been able to see medicine quite as the average person sees it. I do surgery because that's something that you can see. It's more tangible. But i can remember and postgraduate days and during internship that very often i'd go to the patient's bed and start a process of elimination and then very often i'd wind up guessing. That wasn't the way it was with my father. I think with him. It possibly was a gift. Intuitive diagnosis father through the years had built up a very good mail order business. Because at that time there wasn't too much money in medicine. I don't think. I suffered too much as far as the racial situation was concerned because i was born into it and knew nothing other than that. A man wasn't actually mistreated. Though if he was he could only resent it. He could do nothing about it on the other hand. I got quite a different picture. Farther south economic conditions had a great deal to do with it. Because i've often heard my father say that his mother would take one of the old time flour sacks and cut a hole through the bottom and two corners of it and they're you'd have a gown of course when father finally came to virginia to work his way through school. He resented the southern cracker as he often called them so much that he didn't even go back to his mother's funeral. He said he never wanted to set foot in the deep south again and he didn't i went to elementary and high school in washington. Dc and then to howard university. My internship was in washington. I never had too much trouble in school. i was able to get my workout. All my troubles arose. When i was thrown socially among groups of people as far as school was concerned i made fair grades throughout. This was around. Nineteen thirty five and it was about this time that i actually started drinking during the years. Nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty five due to the depression and its aftermath. Business went from bad to worse. I had my own medical practice in washington at that time but the practice slackened and the mail order business started to fall off
Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock on the issues that would drive them in the Senate
"Why did you think that now is the time to run an office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor served beneath baptist church. But i've been engaged in these fights from that copay for years i've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights at work alongside. My friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. Four hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they're ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah. Georgia wanted twelve number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy meetings and as running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect. Joe biden is on the cusp of perhaps winning the state of georgia talk about one. Why president-elect biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i can imagine you went all around the state. You didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. No that's a good point. I've been moving all across the state. And you know that. That's important jonathan because there is this narrative in georgia politics. There's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state. But i've been on a bus moving across the state dropped by small towns like america's george Cuthbert georgia down randolph county. And the people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town. Which is interesting to me. Because i'm running to represent the whole state rule and the north and the south. And i'm getting to see first. Hand the concerns that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about healthcare. They're concerned about the fact that they want to make sure they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable had eight hospitals close in this state largely because we refuse to expand medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastating rule healthcare and also taking away jobs. And so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by. And when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare they're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when you're out on the campaign trail though in those parts of georgia that perhaps aren't hospitable to a democratic candidate. What kind of response are you getting. What are you hearing from those voters. I think people appreciate the fact that you're willing to talk to them. And that's my orientation is not a strategic political decision. Quite frankly part of what running gives me an opportunity to do. Is to do what i would normally want to do. Anyway and spend time with talking to people who don't see the world exactly the way. I do one of the things that disappointed me. About the fact that we're living through this deadly and tragic pandemic is that i had hoped earlier in the campaign to get across the state and drop into some of these wednesday night bible studies. I'm a passenger after all and they're people who don't share my politics but we read from the same book and there must be some values there must be some common ground. There must be a place where we can talk about the things that we actually agree on.

Georgia Senate debates make headlines ahead of runoff
"Voting in georgia for the january senate elections begins one week from today. On december fourteenth debates for both georgia's senate races were held last night in atlanta. Here's republican senator. Kelly leffler and democrat reverend raphael warnock. My question is a pretty simple. Yes or no. Senator leffler did donald trump lose a recent presidential election. President trump has every right to use every legal recourse available in our own state. We've seen time and again that we have investigations that need to be completed. The trump campaign has filed fifty three frivolous lawsuits claiming election fraud courts. Actually the lawsuits did not ever claim fraud. Not in a single one of those losses. Did they claim fraud. Once they got in a court courts found zero instances fraud that includes one case. George that was dismissed today by a federal judge appointed by president. George w bush drudges republican. Senator david perdue who is facing allegations of insider trading. Just refuse to show up to debate as challenger don crat jon ossoff who appeared next to an empty lecture. My message for the people of our state at this moment of crisis is your senator feels entitled to your vote. Your senator is refusing to answer questions and debate his opponent because he believes he shouldn't have to. He believes this senate seat belongs to him. The senate seat belongs to the people today. John also held a campaign event in lilburn georgia. Imagine being a. us. Senator afraid of answering questions in public for fear that he might incriminate himself at a moment. Like this when people are hurting joining us. Now is who and castro. The former secretary of housing and urban development in the obama administration. Former mayor of san antonio texas secretary castro. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. You're back on the campaign trail today. Jon ossoff tomorrow for raphael warnock What are you seeing out there. Especially in response to this weekend's debate last night's debate where a david did not even show up. It's good to be with you lawrence. But what i've seen is a lot of people georgia understand how important the stakes are here. They understand that what happens here in georgia is gonna affect not only all georgians but also all of us as americans. I think most of gay and what they saw in the debates last night. Reinforce this that in a senators leffler purdue they've had two people that endorsed most critical moment of need have chosen to serve themselves to enrich themselves benefit their friends instead of working on behalf of the people of georgia. And what they see an rafael warnock in jon. Ossoff our to folks who are committed to serving the people georgia who were talking about the issues that matter healthcare job getting small suspect up in going housing opportunity as many people facing eviction making sure that we tackle climate change in the biggest challenge of our generation so the the differences here couldn't be more clear. Let's listen to more of what john also had to say on the campaign trail today. And how are these campaigns. These two democratic campaigns a sound like a partnership. Let's listen to this. You got the young jewish journalist son of an immigrant running alongside a black preacher who holds the same pulpit as dr king at the knees baptist church building a movement for health jobs and justice for the people at a moment of crisis because health jobs and justice are what the people need right now and we are running against the bonnie and clyde of political corruption in america secretary castro that kind of teamwork is unusual. Most people would. They're running for office. They're just trying to get themselves over that hurdle. Well it is. And i think we're fortunate that we have these runoffs going on at the same time as you know. Lawrence doesn't not happen where you have to united states senate seats in a runoff at the same time and i think they've done a very good job as a team and painting making sure that their message is clear about what they're gonna do for the people of georgia that get his asses the work to make sure that folks have good opportunities in georgia. And that's how they're going to govern governed in a much stronger way for the people of georgia than a leffler and purdue. Have i want to listen to something. That reverend warnock said last night in his debate because interestingly both democratic campaigns are running against republican candidates credibly accused of insider trading using their senate positions for insider trading. Let's listen to what the way reverend warnock put it. Last night. She was only there three weeks. i'm not sure she was fully unpacked when she started dumping millions of dollars of stock trying to protect herself and She purchased. That seat is done well for her. The issue is that the people who sold it to our. Don't it and the people of georgia coming back to get their seat sir. Castro is that issue getting traction on the campaign trail is especially. Because you're is somebody in kelly lafleur who was not elected Who last night into debate. You could tell just said the same thing over and over and over again and instead of addressing the issues basically just tried to label roselle warna you know as do liberal for georgia when he was there actually talking about the things that we hear people talking about table being able to afford the rent. You know wh what is their gonna come back online. What is washington dc. Doing work to make sure that they have opportunity. And to make sure the infancy can get asked endemic It's night and day away. That worn can also addressing the issues. That people are talking about the care about right now. And i'll disconnected leffler and her do our sanitary helene. Castro live from the campaign trail in georgia. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. Really appreciate

But he understands why some churches are more reluctant, a sense that communities are Singling them out for blame in a way that other institutions aren't so I'm very sympathetic to the way that a lot of other churches are trying to wrestle with this, and it's not an easy thing. Burden gives frequent updates on his congregations Cove in 19 situation and Facebook posts, and he says his transparency has yielded some positive attention. Several pastors have called to offer support. Others have also asked how they can avoid an outbreak.

But he understands why some churches are more reluctant, a sense that communities are Singling them out for blame in a way that other institutions aren't so I'm very sympathetic to the way that a lot of other churches are trying to wrestle with this, and it's not an easy thing. Burden gives frequent updates on his congregations Cove in 19 situation and Facebook posts, and he says his transparency has yielded some positive attention. Several pastors have called to offer support. Others have also asked how they can avoid an outbreak. It's an interesting call to take from someone who wants to know how not to end up like you, but I understand where they're coming from right because he says no congregation wants to end up in the headlines for a cove in 19 outbreak..

My brother introduced me to you a while ago, and in three months, we paid off eighteen thousand and my husband's student loan go with that for you writing very exciting. Took us thirteen years for the first eighteen thousand three months for the last eighteen thousand. I love it. Yeah. Anyway. So my question is where we should be done with baby step number three.

But as we were completing baby step two, we did not stop our investments for four three b and are and I have I have three and a four fifty seven. So he he maxes out his and I have to that. I can max out. So basically right now, we're contributing twenty five percent of our income to those funds. Oh, so you're not really following the baby steps, okay? I tried to knock it down to fifty dollars a month. And he kinda stopped and said, no, we're going to do you know, I hear you're doing your plant. Okay. No, I'm trying to do your plan.

Oh, my question is is since when you contribute to those funds or your four three b and your four fifty seven pre-tax. Why is it beneficial to not Mexico's those out to pay off your house? Not max those out to pay off your house. Oh. Mount. You can do whatever you want to obviously. And but the the reason is is that all of the data points that we have dealing with millionaires not people with eary's, but people who are real millionaires is that they pay off their home in ten point two years on average. And after studying millionaires and what they do. That's what we determined. And so what we want to put you on a plan to pay off your home, and the, you know, most people pay off their home doing our stuff in about seven years if they work our plan, which is fifteen percent of your income going into retirement, not twenty five percent fifteen percent. And you know, then upset five kids college of that needs to be addressed and six is then you know, you put the rest of it on and pay off the house and most people that are doing that. While living alive for paying off their home in an average of about seven years, which gets you ahead of the game for the millionaire status. But. You can certainly do whatever you wanted to. I mean, you could never pay off your home and completely fill up all of your retirement, and that's your plan. That's okay. But our plan actually tracks and follows with what the typical millionaire has done. And so, you know, you can do whatever you want to obviously. And you know.

"Yeah. And you talked about as we're taping this, we're dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Florence and you talk about kitchen table issues. I just tweeted an article about one point, two million chickens that were killed or drowned in hurricane Florence. You talk about a kitchen table issue. Literally, this is likely to mean that people will see higher prices for poultry and poultry products eggs. So it really is important to try to make these kitchen table times. We love polar bears, but we certainly these are about sort of everyday kitchen table issues of the food. We buy the kinds of public health. Our kids face the challenges with new diseases, even national security. You also have a really interesting and special angle on and something that you and I have in common. It's. Guarding your faith talk a little bit about? Well, what I wanna do first is before we talk about your faith as it relates to climate change. I wanna play a clip from from the effort and let you react to us. We're gonna play the clip now. Christian. I believe that God created this amazing world that we live in. It's not where you sit for an hour on Sunday. I believe that we are called to be responsible for this planet and every living thing that lives on it that we are called to love and to care for others. So rather than science and faith being in conflict on this. I think they actually complement each other. That was the clip there. And I mean, yeah, let's talk about that a little bit. Why is this so important to you to bring bring your faith perspective into the discussion? Well, when I first moved to Texas, I started to get all kinds of invitations to speak to community groups. The league of women voters, the local seniors home about a changing climate. And so as scientists, you know to us, it self evident why this is important. It's real. It's us it serious and we need solutions now. So I would go to these groups and I would talk science science science as many of us do and would, and that I would get all these questions and most of the questions weren't about science. The questions were about, well, why should I care? Because they just assumed that I was, you know, the stereotypical scientist liberal atheist tree hugging, probably, and they were very different. And so they did not see the connection to their values, and that made me realize that to me. The connection seem very obvious to my values, but if I wasn't going to share that with anybody, they couldn't read my mind. And so I still remember the first time I got invited to speak to a faith group. It was second Baptist church. Second Baptist can always go out and Olympia further than First Baptist. Second Baptist was willing to have the climate scientists in, and that was the moment when I realized if I'm really going to connect this issue to people's values, I have to open my own heart and share with them why I care too. And for me, it has everything to do with my faith. The idea that we are responsible for this incredible planet that we live on and even more importantly, the idea that we are created to love and to care for others who are less fortunate than us. So being able to share that with people, it was just incredible. It just opened their hearts as well to the fact that you don't need a whole new set of values to care about a changing climate. If if we are people of faith, if we are parents, if we care about the economy, if we care about national security, as you said, ninety nine point, nine percent of us, we already have all the values we need to care, but a changing climate, we just have to connect the dots. I agree with that. There's no certainly no inconsistencies between being good stewards of the earth and having dominion over our only planet that we can. Live on right now. You know, as David Titley collie both. Whereas often says it's not about whether you're Republican or democrat, it's not whether you're Protestant or Catholic, you know, the ice just melt and all.
