"When employees feel supported businesses become more than a place of work, they become a work of art. U K G R purposes people. It's how I built this from NPR. I'm guy rise when it comes to thinking about who is an entrepreneur. We often overlook people who get their start in the creative arts. I mean, think about Walt Disney before he built what would become one of the biggest media companies in history. He created the most iconic cartoon character in history. But for his time, he was pretty unusual. Artists usually make their money by selling their art, their acting skills, their paintings, their music, their novels. But over the past decade, more and more creative types have started to take more control over how their work is used, and in some cases to own and distribute and market their own work. This is how Ava Duvernay has constructed her entire career. She's not only one of the most entrepreneurial creators in Hollywood but increasingly one of the most influential now you might think of Ava as a director. Her documentary 13th, about mass incarceration in the United States was nominated for an Academy Award and her drama when they see US based on an assault in Central Park and the wrongful conviction of black and Latino teenagers made a huge impact when it was released in 2019. Abbas directed big budget for Films like a wrinkle in time and historical dramas like Selma, But her directing business is only one part of a much bigger enterprise, even a movement that Eva Duvernay has built from the ground up. She began her career as a publicist and at age 27 started her own publicity agency. She's self financed her first films and because she had a background in marketing and new.

I think the day before yesterday was much more important because that's us today of the debt. Although of course today is very important relation and in your new book. My name is selma you talk about your life. You talk about how you grew up in the netherlands. You talk about how your family weren't even practicing jews. You were just living a normal life. And all of a sudden that could turned upside down when the nazis started invading europe. I would love to know what that felt like to you. As a person where you felt like you were part of a community and society and the next thing you know you were endangered just because of your family's history although my great grandparents we've religious but my father survey great liberal and so i got on from him and we lift allies amongst ole christian people and Just one awesome though. I mean civilians and So it was not felt. You knew my girlfriend's new irish jewish. And i knew sketch laker a new. The but it didn't make any difference trends and changed the germans you talk about in the book how your life changed over the course of a few months. Where in one moment. You're a young girl who was seventeen years old and then because of what was happening in the netherlands the jewish community you had to come together to try to fight the scourge of the nazis as a young girl who is dying her hair to change how she looks as a young girl who is trying to help fellow members of the jewish community with passports and papers and food and transports. What was going through your mind when this was happening. Neither thinking that the end would come soon. Effective came later. He sold but it was settled the image alone be six months or something that don't forget the netherlands neutral indefensible or and the whole population fault. That this time we would be neutralist well and no occupation so when it did come. It was a great surprise off three year or so. You decorations came in. And jews were not allowed in on the trends and not allowed in cinemas and not allowed to face it christian friends anymore etc and so then. Dumbness made to feel an outsider. Do when you were captured by the germans. They forced you to work on an assembly line manufacturing gas mosques for the germans and you talk about how what you would do is leave some of the screws loose so that the gas mosques wouldn't work properly. I have two questions about that. Firstly weren't you afraid that you would be caught. And secondly where did you get that idea from well at all. I was only simply and one of the first days. I was sitting on this side of and the other girl. Heke lesser name became very important She said don't. Don't tie the screws too tight. She told me too. So i was very good. I sold it was wonderful because summertimes until you see not realizing how dangerous it was. V diesel be adoption. Meek will do anything and later on when i had my some broker and couldn't vehicle assembly nine a week and after i had to put the gas mask in the box and checks the and of course. I knew that the screws were loose. But i still to me because it sent straight to. Your many important food is so gis when when you look at the world today. You are one of the few remaining survivors of that time. Many people worry that society will forget. That story as few survivors are able to recount. What happened to them. Those stories will be lost to history and part of the fear is that history will then repeat itself. Why do you think it's so important for us to keep on talking about what happened. During that time when nazi germany was invading the world because by Rations are so important. Because you commemorate you tell the story and people tell the stories which has happened. And i personally go. F- year vic to rothmans group. Research group of riemann and men who have just finished the teaching training teachers training and Data children become a teacher.

The 2021 Oscars' Best Original Song Nominees
"Get to this year's oscar nominated songs in a minute but before we weigh in on those songs and their chances. Stephen can you talk a little bit about the common themes we've seen from some of the oscar winners and nominees of the last few years. Well each year this category has been a different kind of mixed bag. Depending on what sort of movies are coming out. In a given year you often have a song or more from disney musical. You often have a song from a big blockbusters like all stars from black panther from a couple years ago. Big songs from big movies often wind up making their way into these nominations. And then they'll be mixed in with. Sometimes it's a song you've never heard of by an artist you've never heard of from a movie you've never heard of so. It really is a very very mixed bag from year to year with some recurring themes diane. Warren is very often nominated as a songwriter very often. Especially in recent years. You have a lot of songs that i call for lack of a better term. Glory corn so named for the song. Glory by common and john legend from movie. Selma a few years ago songs that play over the closing credits of movies about social justice all of which have titles that kind of together to form this. I will rise and fight and raise my voice to stand for you and so this year is a little bit of an unusual year for a bunch of obvious reasons. Many of them related to the pandemic. You didn't have a big disney musical so you didn't have a let it go into the unknown big disney banger. And you didn't have a lot of blockbusters you didn't have for example. No time to die. The james bond movie which had a theme song by billie eilish which came out which was pretty well received. And i think would have been a shoe in at least to be nominated and probably win. Had the movie actually come out and thus been eligible so that has kind of opened this year's field to what has turned out to be a whole lot of glory.

"Selma, also known as Bloody Sunday, a landmark event in the civil rights movement. And last week, the House passed a police and reform bill named after George Floyd, who died in police custody last year in Minneapolis. Jury selection is scheduled to begin tomorrow in the trial of Derek Shobin, who is charged in Floyd's death. Civil rights attorney Ben Crump is one of the lawyers that represents the family of Mr Floyd. And he joins us from Houston, Texas. Good morning to you. Good morning, Margaret. There was a late development over the weekend in regard to the potential third degree murder charge against this former officer in the state of Minnesota's case. Real jury selection still begin tomorrow. Will things get underway Monday? It is our understanding that the trial will get underway Monday. Jorge Flores family as the victims who are represent have been informed that they have every intention of the trial going forward. In anticipation of that We have seen protests in cities around this country in Minneapolis. Some businesses are already being boarded up and fear of potential violence. Like what engulf that city last June. You've been with the Floyd family. What is their message to protesters? With their messages. Thank you for standing up and exercising your First Amendment rights but doing so in a peaceful way. I know. Attorney General Keith Ellison, the first African American Attorney general for the state of Minnesota is going to prosecute this case zealously, and that's why they moved for the third degree murder charges to be instated because they want to make sure That the jury has every option Toehold Derrick show been criminally liable for the torture. The inhumanity and the murder of George Floyd. That is the state's case. We know that often happens before the federal case gets underway, But there has been AH grand jury impaneled in Minneapolis and the Justice Department has called new witnesses. Do you have any indication as to how the Biden administration's Justice Department is going to handle this? It is my belief that George floors civil rights were violated. I mean, you look at that video you hear him, say 28 times. I can't breathe. The public is begging the police to take The knee off his neck. They say his nose is bleeding. He can't breathe. He's going unconscious. You're gonna kill him if that's not a deprivation off his civil rights to live. I don't know what it is. And Margaret my whole life's mission as a civil rights attorney has been tol Be a unapologetic defender are black life and black liberty and black humanity. And we saw that Derrick show Vin. May, 25th 2020 took all of that away from a black man who was restrained, face down and handcuffs. As a candidate, Joe Biden did speak with George Floyd's family, and he made promises and I wonder what your understanding is in terms of what's actually going to be delivered. Well. President Biden Vice President Kamila Harris spoke with George Florida family as many of my other clients Jacob Blake, Jillian Briana Taylor's family while they were campaigning. And they Were sincere and saying they believe we need to have police reform. We need systematic change and reform and policing, and I know Millions of black people went out and voted and these cities like Atlanta and Milwaukee in Detroit, with George, Florida and Briana on their mind, And so it is my Hope that President Biden, who said that this was going to be a priority for him to get police and reform that he will Not ever forget those conversations with George Floor family. Those conversations with Briana Tailors. Brokenhearted mother. Those conversations with Jacob Blake, who's paralyzed because their lives matter, black lives matter. And this would be something that he could deliver. That will be a permanent brand for his legacy that he did not forget those black people who he talked on the campaign trail once he Send it to the leader of the free world. And those political promises are often hard to deliver on when you look at the reality of what has happened with this George Floyd Policing Reform bill, which passed the House again this past week, but is now headed to the Senate, which we know in the past installed there. What Area is therefore compromise. Can you stomach anything compromised unqualified immunity. Where we understand that Uh, Politics is the art of compromise because we want to make progress, however unqualified immunity, Margaret this has to be addressed because This is the same that allows bad police officers toe engage in reprehensible conduct like we saw with George Floor and Doubtless. I mean, just the black people being killed and shields their behavior and we're not saying that. This qualified immunity reform will deny police officers. They're due process. But what we are saying it will allow those who have been harmed toe have access to court and to be able to make sure we change the toxic nature that some of us feel. It happens in police. And when we look at that, George floor video we can do better. America. We must do better. We will watch on that provision in particular. Thank you, Mr Crump. For your time, we'll be right back. G and Ursula show Michael Med bed.

That goes back really to after the civil war Were african americans which make a majority of the county our fighting not only for the right to vote but the right to control their own labor and because of the type of racial trauma and violence that was inlands can gain the name bloody lowndes so i grew up at a time when it was great. Change a lot of people are coming to visit primarily students that were part of the su nonviolent coordinating committee. There were organizing people for the right to vote because allows carries between the selma montgomery area in most of the march for the right to vote actually goes through lowndes county. You've highlighted this statistic that eighty percent. I think people live in las county or not on a municipal sewer system which means when you flush the toilet. It doesn't go in the sewer system. Because somewhere else is that. Is that the the situation. Yes the situation. In but of those eighty percent will of the twenty percents that are on a municipal system. Some of them are pana wastewater treatment. A emanate flush system instead of just going into the lagoon is coming back into their homes. They the yards so we not only see failing onsite septic systems or lack of septic systems. Will we also see failures. Their current with the wastewater treatment plants wale kevin. Can you explain to me. How septic fifteen works The simplest well quite simply what a in does sledge it goes into it. Jeremy looks like a concrete container. It goes into that container disciplines be natural processes that take place breakdown the fluent that goes there and then it goes through feel is once it goes to those field lies is supposed to come out to almost like drinking water quality but when it when it fails that's not what happens it get clogged up. Once it gets clogged up or eighties gets waterlog. It comes back into the home when it comes back into the home. The fluent that we thought would get treated with not get treated actually end up inside the house so even if you're system your get you don't necessarily have effective sewage presumably. If you have no septic system or inadequate septic system it depends on what you define this worse Inadequate septa system is probably worse than not having a septic system because of their straight pipe. They're taking away from the house. That's just a pipe that dumps the sewage outside the house right they often connect. Pvc pipe to a connection there at the mobile home. So when a flush the toilet in go go-to their pvc pipe. And wherever it is it extends. Sometimes i've seen it go into a appeared outside of the home. I've seen go into a pastor. I've seen it go into the woods when you have a septic system fails or you. Part of a treatment system failed. It comes back into the home quite easily and that usually comes back sometimes. It could flood the homes. I've been in homes where you can see their lands along the walls where was flooded with raw sewage. You can still smell it or come back into a person's bath to whatever the lowest point of entry is gonna come back into the home. These failures can create serious health consequences. What are some of the health consequences that you see in lowndes county but in other places where there is inadequate sewage or a total lack of food system in two thousand seventeen we found evidence of hookworm in other tropical parasites that a journal related to be exposed to raw sewage. We found that allowance karen. We haven't done those type studies in other places however we have collected soil samples in this study is currently being period viewed with samples collected in five states. In those five states. We also found parasites associated with raw sewage.
Finding the Judas in Judas and the Black Messiah
"The 19 sixties, Fred Hampton was chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party. He was a rising leader, organizing disparate multi racial groups in Chicago. Until police shot and killed him and another Black Panther member in an early morning raid. There's a new movie about Fred Hampton out this week, it is called Judas and the Black Messiah. It's not a question of ball. It's a non violence is a question of resistance to fascism or non existence within fascism Film got rave reviews after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last week. It's the second feature from director Shaka King who, until this project came along, was on the verge of giving up making feature films altogether. MPR's Andrew Lyne bonked takes it from here. Yes, Judas and the Black Messiah is about Fred Hampton and how he led the Black Panthers in Chicago. But it's also about William O'Neill, the man who infiltrated the Black Panthers in spied on Hampton on behalf of the FBI. Shaka King told me that the Lucas Brothers who co wrote the story, sold the idea to him like this. Their pitch that they laid out was we want to make a movie about Fred Hampton and William O'Neal. That's kind of like the departed the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie Inside the World of Cointelpro, or Counterintelligence program, the 19 sixties project where the FBI infiltrated and disrupted groups like the Black Panthers, and I was like I see it. I'm done. I'm in Judas is a tight, intense movie. Yes, like the departed and other Scorsese type crime movies. It's a long way, though, from King's first feature film newly weeds from 2013. So what you got here? Newly weeds tells the story of a young couple in Brooklyn who smoke a lot of weed where Judas is loud and fast. Really? Weeds is quiet and tender. I'm done. I'm done online. Won't want Wanna hang out. We hang up. Yeah. How are we supposed to go to the Galapagos? If you mind the bag every two minutes. It hits similar beats as movies by other indie darling directors like Joe Swanberg or the Duplass Brothers. The film Independent Spirit Awards even gave King the Someone to watch award after it came out, which came with a $25,000 grant. Not bad for someone fresh out of N Y. U film school. But after that initial fanfare, I was so depressed after making newly weeds and my expectations for the release just not coming to fruition. The movie didn't get much attention outside the festival circuit from agents and distributors, largely because it was a movie with black actors who no one knew on at that time that was deemed worthless. The film's release in 2013 wasn't that long ago, but it was just before what a friend of Kings jokingly dubbed. The Black Excellence Industrial Complex. You're Selma's and Moon Lights and Black Panthers when movie studios realized they could make a lot of money by releasing films by and starring black people. Nearly weeds. Loss of momentum burnt king out on the idea of making another feature film, But he did have an idea for a short rolling around in his head. It was kind of silly kind of outrageous, sweetheart. Lips. Excuse me, miss. It's called Moon Yang's after the Italian slur for black people want heard on the streets of Brooklyn in it, King and two others play these three black guys who talk like they're in the mom movies. King has such a fondness for It was somewhat inspired by King's experience growing up in a mostly black part of Brooklyn, but going to high school in South Brooklyn, where everyone the Irish Americans, Greek Americans, Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, all talks like the Italian American kids, and those kids were Hilarious. They were profane. They were quick witted, and we were not friends put like I could appreciate their sense of humor. The movie is a concise examination of race, gender gentrification. As King's character gets into an argument with his sister over a MetroCard, you did not have a dime. Put 1000 until the white guy comes by and says hi to the sister. Hi. How you doing? How are you? You guys just don't know what both outta here. Oh, Polluted the movie is fun and poignant, and the process reminded King how much he loved making movies. That movie saved me. You saved me. I didn't see that or know that about Shaka. But I could understand, and I could see how that could happen. Charles de King, no relation to director Shocking is the CEO and founder of Macro which since its founding in 2015 has produced movies and TV shows featuring non white people, including Judas and the Black Messiah. It was before the oscarssowhite moment. Of 2015. There's a lot that's happened since then. There is much more of an openness and I think an understanding of the business opportunity there. Which brings us to King today, making a movie about an anti capitalist black radical at a very capitalist Hollywood studio without watering down the politics. The deal is to respect the authenticity. Fred Hampton Jr is the current chairman of the Black Panther Party, Cubs and son of Fred Hampton. He says he and the other Panthers had their guards up when they were approached about this film. The Panthers have long been subjected to propaganda campaigns and misrepresentations. But he says King and the rest of the cast and crew definitely navigated the crossroads between their creative goals and the Panthers. Political ones. Well enough, anyway. Revolutionaries never satisfied. You know, I wish there was more political cartoon. We could've pushed. In a certain point, However, I'll put the people's need before before my needs my wants and desires. For instance, the relationship between Fred Hampton and his partner, Deborah Johnson, was a tricky thing to get right. The poet.
How Stonewall Unified the LGBTQ+ Community With Activist Mark Segal
"In the mythology ising stonewall we talk about how it lasted three days as if it lasts three days just on its own and something i had heard before until your book was about how it lasted three days because you were writing chalk on the street come to stone tomorrow night. How intentionally kept it going. I mean you writing chalk on the street meet stonewall night like that spread information that that's like tweeting. Today we had no cell phones. We had no internet most couldn't afford a phone quite honestly. During some fifty sort of amazing. I would go out to various speaking engagements. Some of them were museums. Some of them were in schools. Everyone had it seems a different day. Oh went on for three days. Oh it went on for four days. Oh it went on for six days. How many days did go on is a good question for me. You went on three hundred sixty five days because right from the beginning we started organizing that includes from the street running on street tomorrow night to the third or fourth or fifth night. I don't remember which where we had leaflets on the street saying you know we're not going to allow the The police to oppress us anymore. This is our neighborhood. That's what is so that was in itself illegal. When we gathered at the steps of stone wall that was illegal homosexuals could not congregate to that was when we said. We're gonna fight the police. That was illegal. Everything we did in that first year was basically illegal and we wouldn't be stopped. We were going to be out loud proud and don't even try to stop us. I don't think i knew that. Part of history that it was illegal to congregate if you're gay. Yup that's why stonewall was so popular because if you were walking up and down christopher street all night long which is what i did with my friends. The chances argue would be stopped by the police sometime. The police that they saw drag queen will try to find out if they had three pieces of mail clothing on because that was the law. Others would be harassed. It wasn't a safe as you might think it would be so when you went into the stonewall it was a safe place it was a place you to be yourself. You could hold hand. You put your arm around somebody and more importantly to eighteen year old. You can dance sure. Now you mentioned. Marty robinson he with one of the co founders of the liberation front which was a group that really helped to forge. The foundation of our community was the gay liberation front. Was that group something that came out of stonewall or was it already in existence beforehand. There were many organizations before stonewall. The leading one in new york was mattachine and all my first or second week i tried to go in about a sheen. They said i was too young as i was leaving. That's where i met. Marty robinson who is coming out and he said you know these guys. They don't get it they don't understand what's going on in nineteen sixty nine. We just can't be doing once a year march. We need to do some more. He created the action group which i was a member off. There were many little groups or pockets of groups like that around new york somehow. After stonewall we all unite for the first time action roof aries lesbians. We got together. That's what created gay liberation front. He was the first united movement in our country from the grass. Roots up before that drag queens weren't allowed to be part of it before that streaking like me weren't allowed to be part of any movement so that change gay liberation front. That's what we were

"selma" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"This episode of based on a true story was produced by me Dan the fat. I'd like to thank Dr Clayborn Carson for his time and expertise in helping US separate fact from fiction in the movie Selma. If you WANNA learn even more about the life of Dr Martin. Luther King Junior. There is perhaps no better place to start than by learning from the Dr Martin Luther. King Junior Research and education institute at Stanford. I'm not sure to add a link to some of their fantastic and free resources. And that includes Dr Carson's podcast called. The World House podcast. You can find links to those in the show notes for this episode, as well as on the shows home on the web based on a true story PODCASTS DOT com. Okay. Now, it's time for the answer to our to truth and a lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher here are troops and one life. Number. One. The church bombing we see at the beginning of the movie actually happened a year before Dr King arrived in Selma. Number two, the literacy test was a big part of the barrier to vote. Number three Dr King was not at the March. We now know as bloody Sunday because his wife Coretta was upset about a recording they received about his affairs. Did you find out which one is ally. Let's start with number one, the church bombing we see at the beginning of the movie actually happened a year before Dr, King arrived in Selma that. Is True as Dr Carson explained the bombing of the Church that can four girls took place in nineteen sixty three while the timeline of the movie is in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty four. So that really wasn't tied to the reason why Dr King went to Selma like the movie seems to imply. That brings us to number two. The literacy tasked was a big part of the barrier to vote. That is also true. We learned in this episode that the literacy test was basically a test by the voting registrar was completely up to their judgment. So one example Dr Carson gave was that they might ask someone going to register to vote to explain a clause in the state's constitution or there was the example we saw in the movie even where they ask Oprah's character emily. Cooper. To name all sixty seven county judges in Alabama. So basically questions that no, one would know the answer to and yet that was used as a barrier for black voters. Well, as Dr Carson pointed out white voters almost never failed the literacy test. That means the LAI is number three Dr. King was not at the March. We now know as bloody Sunday because his wife was upset about a recording they received about his affair. Dr Carson explained the real reason why Dr King was not at the march that Sunday was. A lot more simple. He decided he was going back to Atlanta to preach. It was Sunday after all and Dr King was a minister and it's not like anyone had any idea that that day's march would become a major event that we now know as bloody Sunday. That just about wraps up our time together today before we go the last thing I'd like to do on each episode is to share how much time and effort went into creating this episode. I know that's not something most podcast, and that's exactly why I'm doing. There's one thing that's surprising to most people who are new to podcasting or created podcast before it's just how much time goes into creating them. So I figure maybe if you find out more about how much time and money goes into creating a podcast like mine, then maybe we'll start you appreciate all the podcasts you listen to for free just a little bit more. With. That said, today's episode took a total of thirty two hours to create an costs nineteen dollars twenty one cents in out of pocket expenses. As I always do I want to make it clear that time and cost is only my time for this one episode in other words, thirty two hours does not include the countless hours of my guest time researching the subject matter we talked about. It also doesn't include the time it takes for me to do podcasts related things that are not part of creating this one episode. For example, the time it takes to maintain the based on a true story website, social media, the email newsletter, and all of those little things outside of creating a single podcast episode that are still required to make an overall podcast. Similarly. On the expensive side that nineteen dollars, twenty, one cents it's just for things specifically for this one episode, she's mostly mature like buying the movie. It doesn't include all the podcast related expenses that go beyond making a single episode. For example, the cost of the microphone that I'm talking into right now, the cable hooked up to the microphone, the audio interface, the computer software, the PODCAST, and website hosting costs, and so on. All those things take time to set up and maintain and cost money that goes beyond the things associated with this one episode. But they're all things that are required because if I didn't do those things, there wouldn't be any episodes of based on a true story at all. In a nutshell. podcast made me free to listen to, but it's not free to create, and that's why I'm so thankful for the wonderful people who are helping to support the show financially. So we can keep it going. So if you enjoyed today's episode I, hope you'll consider helping support the next episode over at based on a true story podcast dot com slash support and.

"Sixty. So Democratic president trying to win the white. House. has to walk that fine line of you might have. These because you need the Kennedy could not have been elected in nineteen sixty without the black vote and north. It was a very close election but in nineteen, sixty four. Lynda Johnson wins in a landslide. So, for the first time unlike Kennedy, he has the freedom. I can do something big for he wants to do on social issues as opposed to racial issues he wants to. Build his great society. He wants to pass legislation where he needs white support. And civil rights he learns very quickly is this divisive issue. You have a lot of resentment among whites outside the south as well as inside the south to doing very much on civil rights issues. So I, he would have preferred to play down to not make this kind of dramatic march. That was GONNA put pressure around him just like John F.? Kennedy. Would prefer not to have march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three and they reluctantly accepted it and ultimately. The some of the Montgomery marched becomes the crucial turning point for Johnson and he makes that decision that Now, as he says, we shall overcome. Introduces the Voting Rights Act. and. You can make the argument he wanted to be pushed but maybe not so quickly. Because he he understood and the he says at. One of his comments about it now that. This will cause the Democratic Party south for the next generation. Down we're talking about two generations later he was exactly right yeah. The Democratic Party hasn't carried the deep South and any election since then or since his landslide in nineteen sixty four. In every single election, the majority white voters voted Republican. And so. He went from being the Democrat Party being the majority party. to actually among whites being minority party and the only thing that makes it possible for Democrats to win elections as the black. That ultimately was his calculation that. Yes you'RE GONNA lose some of southern votes especially. But you're also going to gain the loyalty of black voters. So now, some ninety percent of black voters. Democrat and without `Bout Democratic candidates would not have much chance of winning election that helps give a lot more context I think of LBJ's position on that and why he had that position. It doesn't get into that and you know one thing that I felt About the film I. Actually at the time. writing a script for a film which never got made. And one of the reasons why I didn't. Have some movie. Got Green Light before, and there was a sense that you can't have to civil rights movies out there at the same time. So they can pull the plug on on the Birmingham Project and the Birmingham Project would have done a lot more expensive to do and probably. Would have been even more difficult than SAMA films do without the support of the king family. Because as you probably realize at the end, the speech that is deliberate is not the one that king actually delivers but the Abbot Gergen a Chester right. His his lines and I pitied her in the House of. Could you write lines for Martin Luther, King better than he would write for himself? That yet, that's a tall task right there. I WanNa ask you about you mentioned earlier the march from Selma Montgomery and that's kind of the big march at the end of the film and according to the movie. A big reason why it happens is because judge Frank Johnson overturns wallace main dates against the march from Montgomery. So that's able to happen and in the movie itself. We don't see any opposition from the police, but we do see things like king and others marching arm in arm they're singing there's even some archival footage that I'm assuming is going to be from the actual March itself. The movie doesn't explicitly say that, but the way it's cut together. It kind of gives you the idea that that's there but you know it's not all happy. We see some spectators yelling. At the marchers, they're waving confederate flags as the marchers go by how all do you think the movie did showing the march from Selma to Montgomery, of course, ending with that speech in Montgomery in front of a huge crowd plenty of reporters there the very end of the film. You Know I. I'm sure that part of what is going on here is that the film was made on a shoestring budget by Hollywood standards. To have large numbers of people marching. Now, there's a number of events that go on during the march, but in the end days of walking along highway. And one of the things that happens as they passed by lounge, county. And that's where people from lowndes county come down to the March and say, yeah look. Come. To our county we've we need your help and that's out the Carmichael ends up in Lowndes County. where they have the Lowney Freedom Organization, which becomes better known as the Black Panther Party. That's the the group that allows kind of freedom organization eventually gains. Power and Lowndes. County. So that's that could be interesting side story but you know. I I can imagine she's probably already over budget. And? We can have inside stories going on, and then of course, there were a lot of threats, but there's also a lot of celebrities. Who Come in to Bassano March and and that's another factor that you kind of see at the march on Washington where. For the first time, these entertainment celebrities kind of make their. Preferences pretty clear and that's the trend that you see. Continued to today you know the the notion that. That Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general. is going to play a pro civil rights role. You know that's another thing that might have been. Targeted there there's actually some evenings when they have some entertainment on the Roy, people like Joan Baez and. Others who become involved in the movement. I know we've been talking a lot about the history of things but. As, I was watching this movie. I couldn't help connect a lot of things from the film to things that we've seen in the US. Just this year there's a lot of different connections there but one in particular stood out to me and it was lingo said to Governor Wallace if you want fear, you need dominance in Selma? And that eerily echoed President's trump's own words for state governors to dominate protesters earlier this year. So my last question is kind of a two parter one how relevant do you think the message of the movie is even today and to for someone listening to this now what's something that they can do right now to help ensure that fifty five years from now we're not finding history repeating itself. It was a good questions and I think that. There's a lot of relevance to what's going on right now. I think what? Is that. The movement to make America better country. On talking about the long sweep of history from the abolition struggles of the nineteen, th century to the present. There's always the possibility when you mobilize a movement to bring about. Massive social change. You're going to disrupt. The society as it is. And the question is, what is the response to that disruption? Is it? Turning voters to support long order. Now which this is a phrase that really becomes current during the nineteen sixties. George. Wallace. For example, after this setback and Alabama were he's kind of..

"The movie opens with Dr Martin Luther, King Junior accepting Nobel peace prize. So that gives us a time line for when the movie is in nineteen, sixty four after this, the movie sets up a little bit of backstory as d'aquin explains it in movie, there are four children four little girls who were killed in a bombing at a church in Alabama. That's just one recent example at least in the time line of the movie but Dr. King. Goes onto explain that there have been thousands. Of racially motivated murders and not a single conviction because the people behind it were protected by white officials and on the off chance that they were charged, they were acquitted because all the juries were all white because to be on a jury you had to be able to vote. So That's how the movie explains the context around the events that we see from a historical perspective. How well did the film do setting up the backgrounds of the events that led to Dr King's arrival in Selma? Mostly accurate in the overall scope of some of the timing obviously, the church bombing, the Detroit to explain nineteen, sixty, three, not nineteen, sixty four. So that's kind of a step backwards thought out that's understandable. Movies are not meant to be chronological necessarily and I think it provides. Very graphic understanding of what the movement was up against because kings most important campaign had been and Birmingham and for most people they saw that as a success in that, the Birmingham campaign leads directly to the introduction of civil rights legislation by John F.. Kennedy but then the fact that in September of that year. After the civil rights bill was introduced. This bombing takes place. It's almost like it's revenge against the movement. You might have thought that you gained an advantage by having these marches many of which were focused on. Sixteenth Street. Baptist Church in Birmingham, that's where the children congregated before they went into the downtown area where they were fire hosed and teargassed down some of them were attacked by dogs. So the fact that after this these bombers come and attack the church were. These. protests were mobilized was clearly retaliation for what had happened and the fact that the was basically saying you may have gotten some concessions as the result of these protests but we don't accept that was that directly relating to Dr King's arrival in Selma. Then he realized there's more work in this area to do. This all happens we're before that. So the summer camp incomes later. Okay. Okay. I think the movie mentioned something about how there was a lot of work being done there by a group called Snick as MCC and. In the movie they don't, they're not really a big fan of Dr King arriving there they feel like they've been doing this work on the voting issue and now Dr King's going to arrive which means a lot of press and a lot of media and they feel like they're he's almost encroaching on their territory. was there already work being done there in some on the voting issued before Dr King arrived. Yes for example. The boynton family were carrying on the civil rights work voting rights work in particular as far back as the nineteen forties. So long before there's a students arriving from from to help this local movement that happens around nineteen, sixty two, and that's one of the differences between the stirred nonviolent coordinating committee and King King is more. He comes in for a short time. To. Assemble for the. Larger. Southern. Movement when he arrives the press comes with him. So many of the local people want to come. But snack who feel like they've done the spadework for example, in Albany Georgia were the same thing happens for the to observe our together. They feel like they're the ones who have the pulse of local community. and. That king comes in and wants to basically decide, but the local movement will do. And so the move against the center around him. But in this case I think you can see that he comes in for a good reason Now, the if the campaign had been succeeding, he wouldn't have been necessary but they face a lot of brutality and by the beginning of nineteen sixty five, they're staging voting rights marches. To. the county courthouse and these are often met with violence. So it's in that context that king makes a decision that he should. Come to Selma and help this local move and I. Think. For the most part, the state workers accept the fact that that king is going to draw attention, there's some tension, but there's also some operation. So it's not not necessarily that they're targeting they just have a different way of doing it. Now, the stink workers once they arrive there. Pattern is to stay in the community boiler that take several years are not. that. That's the point is that you're you're there to carry out. On, not only voter registration campaigns but often get the vote to try to mobilize the community to actually exercise the boat. Snacks objective is to bring by power. You know that that phrase as it come into the lexicon yet. For what they what their long term goal is to register voters in these deep South counties so that ultimately they will be able to gain political power and change the lives of black residents. You mentioned march to the courthouse and I wanted to ask you about that. 'cause the movie does show that as something that happens soon after king arrives in Selma, we see a march to court house and there's a Sheriff Sheriff Clarke believe his name was and he has some officers there on the steps of the courthouse bordering Dr King and the marchers to disperse. Doesn't take very long for the sheriff to really start inciting violence. He pushes over an older man named cage early and then his son-in-law. Jamie Lee, Jackson starts fighting back and then the sheriff is kind of wrestling with him and we see Oprah's character annually cooper hit the share from the back of the head and that leads to the sheriff then turning on her and his minutes are tacking her, and then the scene cuts to president Lyndon Johnson and sees a photo of anti being pushed to the ground on the front page. How did the movie do depicting that sort of violence at the courthouse with the the sheriff soon after King arrived in Selma well the way you're describing a kind of. A number of different events for example, Jimmy Jackson is ultimately killed and Marian Alabama nodding. Song. That whole incident place and a night March somewhat, not exactly Selma, but in that general area so I think that. What it does is it combines events that had to do at the loading voter-registration movement but. Take some liberties in terms of the timing of them sheriff sat like what you're talking about earlier with the time line of the bombing and such it sounds like yes. Yes. And bitter for the killing of Jimmy Lee Jackson though that leads people to respond some activists. Most of them and and snack who say, okay, what we need to do is march to Montgomery. And put this on the doorstep of George Wallace. that's the way you're going to get attention. So the idea of the March to. Montgomery. To some degree that picks up steam because of. Killing of. Jimmy Lee Jackson. The. Show Jimmy Jackson later on and this initial one I am it sounds like it might just in some might be to kind of introduce us the viewers to him as a character because later on, we do see A. March and The police show up and they disperse and then Jimmy Jackson and his wife and her father kind of sneak into a restaurant and then the cops come in walk right over start beating Cager Lee. Jimmy, tries to stop them in one cops just pulls out the gun shoots point blank. Down assuming based on what she said before that,.

I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true. And that means one of them is a lie. Are you ready? Okay. Here they are number one. The church bombing we see at the beginning of the movie actually happened a year before king arrived in Selma. Number two, the literacy test was a big part of the barrier to vote. Number three Dr King was not at the March we now know is buddy Sunday because his wife Kereta upset about a recording they received about his affairs. got. Him. Okay.
