"At an eighteen sixty seven women's rights convention. Truth makes a speech saying that order for slavery to be fully destroyed. Black men need the right to vote and black women due to she spoke up for black women tab the vote for women to have the vote but she didn't want to hold black men's vote hostage to that also avoids directly calling out the white women for their racism. Uc's journal truth trying not to have to choose trying not to have to alienate motor becoming two sides of the movement that she had been part of now for decades. It's important to note. Sojourner truth is far from the only black woman involved in this activism at the time in fact the previous year at a convention in eighteen. Sixty six. A activist named francis ellen. Watkins harper had given very powerful speech. You white women speak of rights. She said i speak of wrongs harper and truth. Were very different. Figures harper had been born free in baltimore. Harper was a writer she was a poet. She was well educated and shoot dressed and spoke like her white women peers and in general. She's very willing to hold those white women peers to account. She was not as gentle with them. As truth was truth. Remember had been a preacher and she was not ready to condemn white women whereas harper was and so harper is the one who got written out of the nineteenth century women's history. This happens quite literally in a book that stanton and anthony later right called. History of women sort jr in which harper's speeches are not printed in full stanton. Anthony are writing their version of history for a movement that has now and truly splintered in eighteen. Sixty eight the fourteenth amendment which theoretically gives all male citizens the right to vote is ratified inserting. The word mail for the first time in the us constitution. That is a moment of crisis. Things reach a boiling point next year while the fifteenth amendment is being debated it would explicitly guaranteed black male suffrage since the fourteenth amendment had left loopholes that allowed for disenfranchisement. This moment has been called. The great schism in the anti-slavery feminist movement by the end of eighteen sixty nine. There were two prominent. Women's suffrage organizations. There was stanton and anthony's national woman suffrage association which dismissed black male suffrage and issues of reconstruction as dead questions of the past and then there was the american woman. Suffrage association which supported black male suffrage and which included sojourner truth. Sushi finally ended up very clearly on the side of black male suffrage. That stance of truths also gets alighted in stanton and anthony's take on things in a history of woman suffrage. In general the book leaves out or minimizes the roles of many black women and black organizations that contributed to the cause. You wanted to find a black woman. The only woman you would find there is journey truth so it's the impoverishment of women's his street in the early twentieth century that tempted many to start with cerna truths and the gauge. Fersine of truth. The aren't i a woman version. That's the version that makes it into the book and in the twentieth century. That version changes again sojourner truth memory had been molded throughout history to fit different political needs and for historians and activists and regular people in the modern era looking back at the eighteen. Hundreds one need was for a black woman among the women because feminism and the twentieth century was considered a white moments thing and for a woman among the black people because black civil rights was often considered amends thing so security truth becomes the figure who desegregate to movements but for twentieth century people revisiting. The refrain gave up. Aren't a woman that came to sound not southern enough five. The reasoning is ser. Turner treats had been a slave than she must have been a southerner and everybody knows that southerners don't say aren't southerners say inc and so we get inked the twentieth century even those journal truth was not a southerner. She was a proud new yorker. But this slogan ain't iowan gets repeated as if it were fact. It was reported our own history channel website until after researching this episode. We changed it and we're not alone in repeating the slogan. It's been written down in history books not to mention on many a mug and t shirt and little ceramic pin. We still want simple answers. Slogans mythical figures. That's very tempting francis. Dana gauges slogan cia. Sound right in the way. Stereotypes just sound so right. But professor painter is adamant about not reducing truth to a slogan first of all because it somebody else's slogan but second of all because trivializes of figure who needs to be seen both as an extraordinary savior but as the embodiment of many of the strands and themes of nineteenth century. american history. So how should she be remembered. Instead i would like people to remember turner truth as the woman who changed over time for one thing upstate new yorker who emancipated herself. Who was a powerful speaker who is soon deeply intelligent woman who even though she did not read and write was an adept in using the tropes and the images of american religion to the ends of anti-slavery and women's rights. Not.

"Truth sojourner truth eventually leaves new york and goes north to massachusetts. She settles for a time in a cooperative. Community called the north hampton association. It was forward thinking. People anti-slavery people feminists people who believed in sort of cooperative. Production of silk silk wednesday earner truth arrived there in eighteen. Forty three the hundred or so people in the community lived a simple life bathing in the river and working ten hours a day on silk production. Some believed in things like the water cured. Immersing yourself in cold water to improve your health. I guess now we call it wellness. North hampton was a hub of intellectual and political exchange. It was sometimes considered a kind of sort of summer camp in a way for abolition. So frederick douglass. For instance time. They're kind of the respite from the twelve. Being on the lecture circuit importantly at this time the anti-slavery movement and the feminist movement were really intertwined. It's not true ordinance. it's one movement. They for equal rights rights for everybody. And it's in this setting that truth becomes more involved in anti-slavery feminism. She began making the transition from a person focused on religion into forward thinking social activism. Wild truth is living in northampton. She takes a step onto the public stage. She has another woman in the community right down her story which is published as the narrative of truth. And then she sets out on the lecture circuit to promote the book. She draws on her experience as a preacher shows able to use the symbols and the people and the stories of the bible to make rhetorical sense and rhetorical strength so she was a really convincing speaker. People were riveted when she spoke. Truth travels through massachusetts. Ben western new york and then one of the first places. She starts speaking salem ohio because it was known as an anti slavery place. I mean slavery and women's rights and it's through those ohio connections that truth ends up attending the women's rights convention at the old stone church in akron in eighteen fifty one. She's partly there to sell books but she ends up also giving a speech in a way. It's just one speech. Among many she was remember already on the lecture circuit but this speech happens before a relatively large audience. Truth speaks powerfully about women's rights and human rights. She said that she had worked very hard that she deserved rights as women deserved rights and all people deserved rights and men should not feel that anything was being taken away from them by women getting their rights as citizens and human beings. According to an of the speech published about a month later in a newspaper truth describes the work. She done as an enslaved woman she says. I have plowed and reaped husked and chopped and mode and can any man do more than that and through her presence. She reminds a large that. Women's rights includes the rights of women who were women and women who have been enslaved. This is especially notable because many of the women at the convention are well educated. Why an upper class but truth. She was not an educated woman. She was not a wealthy woman. She was a.

"History. This week may twenty ninth eighteen fifty one. I'm sally home. The old stone church in akron. Ohio has a row of columns out front and the clock tower rising above the roof topped by a statue of an angel blowing a bugle today. Hundreds of men and women climb the steps of a church and pack themselves into the sanctuary. It's the second day of a big convention on women's rights yesterday the attendees read out some resolutions on the topic in the morning debated them in the afternoon and adjourned in the evening with a song about ohio this morning. They reconvene at nine o'clock to continue their consideration of the rates duties and relations of women. The room is stifling hot. One prominent newspaper editor can't find anywhere to sit except the pulpit steps it opens with the usual fare. A prayer the reading of the minutes and then part way through the morning according to contemporary newspaper account a woman comes up to the platform and says to the president of the convention. May i say a few words. Sojourner truth is an activist for women's rights and an activist against slavery. She's formerly enslaved herself and over the years. The words that truth spoke in this speech will get repeated and distorted and changed until they ultimately stand in the way of seeing an understanding. The woman herself to trivialize and some her as a slogan is a cheapening of her a cheap name of the meaning of american today truth. How did this feminist and anti slavery activist get turned into a symbol and what parts of the person got lost in the process. Who was truth really.

There is no the sojourner truth archive looking a quilt of tiny little bits and pieces. That's professor now arvin painter. She wrote the definitive biography of turner truth and as she was pulling those pieces together in her research she started to notice a split on the one hand. There was the journal truth that people described in words this fiery person who was taunting man scaring off enemies and ripping opener blouse to show her breast all of those accounts though were filtered through other people truth herself couldn't read or write but painter said truth did find a way to control her own image through photographs. She composed them herself. She's upright or standing with a cane. There might be flowers on the table. She might be wearing a bonnet sometimes. She's holding a book or a photograph of her grandson her knitting which i love. Because i'm knitter in these photos. She is not a defiant figure. She's a woman you should listen to he'd because she is your equal so the conflict between the representations of journal truth. that's something. I've wanted to solve Truth story begins in the late. Seventeen ninety s when she's born. She's known simply as isabella. In the way of rural people at enslaved people she did not have a last name. She belonged to people surname mississippi gala. And she lived and wasn't slaved in upstate. New york in the catskills when she was born slavery was a national institution. It wasn't just in the south. Isabella was enslaved by a dutch family. Rural farm her first language was actually duck. She was the youngest of ten or twelve children. But all but one of her siblings had been sold away before she was born in a narrative of her life that she dictated sold a book. She said that her parents would spend hours sitting around a fire in the dark cellar where they slept telling her details about quote. Those dear departed ones of whom they had been robbed at the age of nine isabella to was sold away from her parents and then sold again and again finally to a family named the dumont's and she was there when the date of mansa patient in new york state approached. The state had decided back in seventeen ninety nine that any enslaved people born before that year would be free on july fourth eighteen. Twenty seven that included isabela but she made a different deal with john. Dumont grant her her freedom one year earlier soon before she was to be released however she injured her hand and dumont went back on his promise determined nevertheless to become free on her own terms. Isabella decided she would leave once. She'd finished spinning a hundred pounds of wool which she did and she felt that she was then free to leave. He did not agree with that. But isabella had allies in the catskills. One of them. A prominent member of dumont's church took her in as a free woman in eighteen twenty six a year before new york abolished slavery so she effectively emancipated herself just before her legal emancipation within a year she'd managed to also free one of her sons. She went to court and sued. The people who illegally sold him out of the state after slavery had been outlawed. She one and then she like many rural new yorkers in new jersey and was drawn to the booming new york city there she gets caught up in a movement sweeping the country the second great awakening. Thousands of americans are filled with religious fervor including isabella in eighteen. Forty three and this is a crucial year and acoustical moment. The day of pentecost the holy spirit said to her that she should preach her truth because people needed to as people would say in the twentieth century. Get right with god because the second coming was imminent and she was to be an itinerant. Preacher that is to say a sojourner so she became. She named herself under the power of the holy spirit. As sojourner.

Oh my gosh what we did on mars. It's incredibly exciting. But this idea of having multiple modes of mobility rovers or great especially when you want to go from rock to rock and analyze the composition. And we're looking for past life on mars. We really need that rover capability but you also want the ability to go longer distances more rapidly and you can only do that by air but mars is such a challenge because of that thin atmosphere but you know the ingenuity team. They show perseverance and ingenuity and they did it.

What Binds the Hands of Love?

"Christian March thirty one. What binds the hands of love. We always thank god. The father of our lord. Jesus christ when we pray for you since we heard of your faith in christ jesus and the love that you have for all the saints because of the hope laid up for you in heaven colossians one three through five. The problem with the church today is not that there are too many people who are passionately in love with heaven. The problem is not that professing. Christians are retreating from the world spending half their days reading scripture and the other half seeing about their pleasures in god all the while indifferent to the needs of the world. That's not happening. The people of god are not so full of love to god that they spend half their days in his word. The problem is that professing. Christians are spending ten minutes reading scripture and then half their day making money and the other half loving and repairing what they spend it on. It's not heavenly mindedness. That hinders love for the lost. At hurting of this world. It is worldly mindedness that hinders love even when it is disguised by a religious routine on the weekend. Where is the person whose heart is so passionately in love with the promised. Glory of heaven that he feels like an exile and sojourner on the earth. Where's the person who has so tasted the beauty age to come that the diamonds of the world looked like marvel's from the dollar store and the entertainment of the world feels empty and the moral causes of the world are too small because they have no view of

"You are a Sojourner you are passing through. So listen. Yes, there's answers. Why you're on the road here on planet Earth. In what? I call this arena of contention. Yes, There is provision for you. Salvation not only means that you're going to heaven. Sure it means that absolutely, but it also means that you can have stability. And you can meet every problem and every difficulty with tranquility in your life. Cause it's only when you're in the place of hopelessness. Helpless. That you can then see the extraordinary power and the extraordinary grace of God when there's no human solution when you're numb from the shock of the pressure. And you can't even pray. Sometimes Roman take, 26 says the spirit intercede Trust in prayer with Groening's that cannot even be heard. Sometimes the intercede for us in prayer, But not not If you have un confessed sin in your life, he can't he's quenched aggrieved. Yeah, You have to be filled with the spirit for the faith. Rest real toe work. Faith rest drill requires the filling of the Holy Spirit. Because it's only in desperate situations. That you can avail yourself to God's perfect provisions. And enter into his perfect peace. In Exodus 17 1. According to the commandment of the Lord, the Lord led them to a place Was he now going to abandon them? He delivered them from Egypt through the Red Sea. And now to this place called Riff idiom. There is no water Refa team. There was no water to drink. That was a test. It's an opportunity to trust God's perfect provisions and her into the perfect rest, and people got mad at Moses and cursed him and scolded him and trying to them. Sounds like what doing in politics today when mad at each other. Complain and they criticize and then he hit the panic button. They attempted God. In a time of crisis. There's always people that are going to complain. Sure. God never intended for you to complain and a time of crisis in your life. We complain. When we criticize in a time of crisis, and we demonstrate our own belief in our failure to trust him. So Moses prayed to the Lord. And he didn't enter into rebuttal. Our argument with those people in in, uh, in an accident, 17. He just went to the Lord and he prayed. He didn't argue with them. He didn't try to justify why they were there. He went right to the Lord for help. So he was a leader. He did not criticize, complain, gripe. He was a quiet, strong, steady quality professional. And he could trust the Lord moment by moment, and he went before that mob and he said, I stand before you all upon this rock, and that's a typology that rock that he was talking about was a picture of Christ.

Providing for the Widow and the Orphan (Zechariah 7:8-10)

"Zachariah chapter seven verses eight through ten in the word of the lord came executive is saying thus says the lord of hosts render true judgments show kindness and mercy to one another do not oppress the widow. The fatherless the sojourner or the poor and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart when a potent few verses when you think about the context here this is god's people and the process of rebuilding the temple and returning to god not just to the land that god had promised to bring them back to after the exile but returning to intimacy with god in right before this ends zachariah chapter seven. God talks about how they had participated in religious rituals and fasting and mourning in the fifth month in the seventh month. Talks about in verse five. So how for years gods people had done these things but they had missed the point like they had participated in religious ritual and yet they had not rendered true judgments then not shown kindness and mercy to one another they had oppressed widow's and orphans so jenner's and the poor. They devised evil against each other in their hearts. Is that possible to possible for the people of god to participate in religious rituals of all kinds including fasting and to miss the whole point by not showing kindness and mercy and justice to one another the world around them. So god we pray directly based on zachariah chapter seven. Percents eight through ten the you would help us to render true judgments to show kindness to one another to show mercy to one. Another got even as i pray. Each of these things got that you would help us to care for the widow to care for the orphan. To care for the sojourner to care for the poor and to not devise evil but the device good for one another in our hearts got even as i pray each of those things specifically i pray your spirit would open our eyes and our hearts to realize how we can do these things more faithfully in our lives. Swarner read them one more time straight from versus nine ten and as i read them we pray. Oh god they you would move our hearts and help us to think of maybe even just one or two specific ways after we finish this prayer that we might do these things not help us to render true judgments the show kindness to one another to show mercy to one another to not oppress the widow to care for provide for the widow to care for provide for the fatherless. The orphan to care and provide for the sojourner to care and provide for the poor. God we pray you would help us to devise good for one. Another not evil to another god.

Black Women Deserve More Credit in Civil Rights Movements

"Black women have been the pioneers of so many movements that have changed the world, the Eurasia of black women from the story of these movements is something. We've seen many times throughout American history starting all the way back with the women's suffrage movement. African American women in particular played a significant in sometimes overlooked role at a suffrage movement. There were African American women fighting for suffrage from the beginning you. Know sojourner truth and the time of the civil war I to be Wells Barnett and Mary Church. Terrell, they built a movement that would grow to half a million but they would never find exceptions among mainstream. Selfridge's at that time. Suffrage leaders were actively wooing southern white members to appease the southerners. White suffragettes found it expedient to abandon their black sisters they minimize the presence of black woman in that struggle. Stan seize control of suffrage history, and this multi volume book still dominates the histories and essentially wrote black women out of that. That's right. Black suffragettes were literally written out of the history books by white women in the movements and just look at their faces. It's like they had already seen the future and they were like I'M NOT GONNA get credit for any of this Emma because the truth is certain white feminist heroes worst super-problematic. People, remember them like they were early versions of wonder woman when in reality they were more like the mom from get out. Now, you may not be surprised that these nineteen twenties, Karen's where he gets to accept black women's work but give them credits. But what may surprise you is that black men in the civil rights movement also happy to do a similar thing most women who worked in the movement who were the exit backbone of the civil rights movement were not really known media attention would always be drawn to the men of the movement as they are doing work that Martin, Luther, King's and others but would not necessarily go to women like Ella Baker who was a longtime activist. Who helped to nurture and birth the student movement Diane Nash With the Lead Strategist behind the citizens in Nashville and the freedom writers he played a critical role in organizing the Selma marches. Dorothy height was the Godmother of the civil rights movement. But because she was a woman, she was often off to the side behind the podium behind the scenes she was guiding force at the table when the big six planned the historic march on Washington in nineteen sixty three, the lone woman at a table full of med, yet despite all her efforts height could not convince them that a woman should be allowed to speak at the podium the day of the march come on man this is so messed up. Black Women with the lifeblood of the civil rights movement, and still they got caught blocked by the dudes I. Mean, the Reverend's got half a dozen microphones right there you come break. One of those offer, my girl Dorothy she was a critical part of the group if the vendors were fighting Santa's but they made eye on Manchester from the stands and this just shows you that black women don't just have to deal with racism from the world but oftentimes, they have to deal with the sexism within their own communities and the world at large.

"Hi. This is Jenny this week. We pressed pause on our regularly scheduled programing. Not because what's happening right now is new, and not because we want to participate in a moment, we want to participate in the movement. We WanNA use whatever platform we have to drive change. This company was founded with the mission of amplifying underrepresented voices in my first interviews for Wfan. I heard many women running for office. Talk about how the moral arc of the universe bends towards justice, but only if we make it, we have a responsibility to step up this week. We've been sharing ways. We can all take action and effect change at the personal and community level both of which are so important. One thing you can do right now is registered to vote had to vote dot org and register in under two minutes. If you're registered to vote and want an absentee ballot, go to vote Dot Org and you can look up how your state handles vote by mail and sign up to receive an absentee ballot. Sometimes it's hard to remember that in the midst of everything else happening in our country right now we're in the middle of an election year, and while the presidential race gets a lot of attention. If you're interested in reforming policing practices in your communities, the best way, you can affect change at the local level. Mayors county executives appoint most police, chiefs, states, attorneys and district attorneys are the ones who decide to bring charges of misconduct. These are elected positions I highly encourage you to research. WHO's running in your local community and find out where they stand on police, violence and reform. This week we're focusing in an amplifying the stories of African American women who changed the course of history now and moving forward. We're also offering free ad space on wonder. Media Network shows to organizations working towards social justice. If you want more information on any of what I've said, please email me at Jenny at wonder media. Network Dot Com.

"Sojourner he was saying I have become a Sojourner in a strange land and it happened during those many days the king of Egypt died and the cry of the children of Israel because of their force service went up to god and god heard their cry for help and god remembered his covenant promise with Abraham with Isaac and with Jacob and god saw the children of Israel and god knew god knew the word of the lord exodus chapters one and two Bravais Walsh New she knew what it was like to grieve as she read through some of the forty thousand letters that filled her garage people from all over the country had written in to show their support to offer sympathy to share their own stories sometimes just to say I know I know what you're going through revain is six year old son Adam had been abducted and murdered there's been a massive search it was all over the news and when people heard the report of his death they started writing letters they read through letter after letter of the families who suffered the same thing that she was going through so she decided to do something she and her husband had resources at their disposal they had connections and so together they helped create what became of the national center for missing and exploited children it's a congressionally mandated organization that's still around today thirty five years later for example they help get out those amber alerts that we here sometimes our phones T. review all she knew what it was like to grieve and she knew how to help and her husband to her husband John went on to start a TV show America's most wanted maybe you've heard of it it ran for twenty six years on prime time television and helped apprehend over a thousand fugitives from the law John Walsh once said in an interview I have walked in the shoes of everyone who's come to us for help the Walsh's new and they knew how they knew how to help people have been reading and listening to and re telling the story of exodus for three thousand five hundred years why because they believe it as I believe that the god revealed in the story of exodus the one true god he knows and he knows how god knows what it's like to suffer evil the pain caused by evil god does not sit in some corner in heaven unconcerned undisturbed by what's happening to us he is close he is present he knows what you've been through he knows what you're facing and even more he knows how he knows how to ruin evil and restore the good in the first two chapters of exodus we see god at work ruining the evil plans of the powerful and not just to stop them but to make a mockery M. god is stripping evil of its power to intimidate how by defeating its power with weakness consider the daughters in the story of exodus fearless the daughters live because he thinks they're weak there are no threat to him they're not even worth his attention and ironically it is the daughters to defeat him their actions and their unintended consequences become his undoing Moses sister she was allowed to live because she had no apparent power but it was her suggestion that led pharaoh's daughter to adopt Moses can you just hear pharaoh's daughter saying to her father Daddy is just one Hebrew baby could you possibly do see the scene begins with ferro killing babies to preserve his power to protect his legacy to safeguard his name and it ends with ferro dead his empire set on a path toward destruction and we're not even told his name yet Shiprock N. Pula these two women apparently powerless we're still talking about them three and a half millennia later you almost feel sorry for pharaoh his power is as durable as a Mirage on the desert road Canadian you trust the god of Abraham the god of Isaac the god of Jacob you don't need to be afraid of people who might try to harm you because god knows and god knows how if this message is found you and you are in the process of harming someone or you are planning to harm them the body their blessings their home their reputation your plans will not prevail because god knows and he knows how he knows because he became like us he became a sufferer as one of us in Jesus Jesus knows what it's like to suffer evil he knows what it's like to be seen as weak and worthless he knows what it's like to be betrayed and tortured ridiculed and murdered Jesus knows and he knows how he knows how to turn weakness into strength he knows how to turn death into life he knows how to ruin evil and remove its power over you he became the crucified messiah risen from the dead as the lord of life Jesus knows and he knows how and Jesus says to you I know your pain I know your loss I know your secrets and I know your fears I know and I know how I know how to pull you out and I know how to bring you through I know how I know how to help you speak up for someone who can't speak for themselves the baby in the womb the child caught in abuse the widow all alone the Sojourner among you I even know how to fill your heart with love for your enemies and to pray for those who persecute you you don't need to be afraid of anyone or anything you belong to me and I will deliver you.

Robots, Not Humans, Are The New Space Explorers

"This month we're marking the fiftieth anniversary of an achievement that still inspires putting astronauts on the moon but as NPR Joe Palca reports another kind of explores responsible for much of the modern enthusiasm for space exploration look humans do still explore space the international space station is a remarkable piece of hardware but as amazing as the space station is excitement about it is relatively modest well you know since the days of Apollo the greatest adventures in space have been these robots that have gone all over the solar system Emily looked a while it works for the planetary society by these robots lacked while is referring to the various probes that have flown past planets moons and asteroids orbiting some landing on others like to Wallace's sure it would be inspiring to see an astronaut land on Mars but in the meantime inspiration is coming from NASA's Mars Rovers it's very easy to anthro pull more funny spam and imagine ourselves rolling across the surface of Mars I think it's really not a stretch to imagine ourselves in the place of these robots exploring across the solar system millions of people around the world of watched with delight as the six wheeled Rovers of trundle across the Martian surface snapping pictures and taking self please at the national air and space museum Matthew Schendel says visitors make a point of coming to the planetary exhibit this gallery is kind of tucked into the west end of of the museum Chanel is the museum's planetary science curator a prominent feature of the gallery is a large glass case containing versions of all the Rovers NASA sent to Mars starting with the tiny Sojourner rover that landed in nineteen ninety seven right up to the two thousand pound curiosity rover that arrived in twenty twelve people love to come and see the Rovers and really get a sense of what they look like up close and their actual scale now Mars has a mystique all its own so perhaps it's not surprising that people find exploring the red planet enticing but the New Horizons fly by of Pluto the messengers close encounter with mercury and Juno buzzing over Jupiter's polls have all generated great public interest and Lindy Elkins Tanton of Arizona State University says the public's appetite for space exploration goes beyond the familiar bits of the solar system alcon Stanton is lead scientist on a mission to a weird asteroid known as psyche it's weird because psyche is made entirely of metal the only asteroid like it in our solar system true most people haven't heard of psyche but Elkin Stanton says when they learn about it they're hooked we're sending this probe to place that is absolutely uninhabitable in an earth kind of sense and yet the engagement we're getting from the public already two years before launch is profound all content and says she and her team are inviting the public to explore psyche with them we're gonna be sending the images that we get out on to the internet for everyone in the world to see within a half hour of our receiving them so everyone in the world is going to see this crazy world at the same time and we can all scratch our heads together the idea of sharing the experience of space missions is something NASA has embraced Emily lacked Wallace says the public has been able to see the passion and commitment of the scientists who work on these robotic explorers she points to the day NASA decided to end the Cassini mission to Saturn by sending the probe into the planet's atmosphere where it burned up there are cameras on the scientists and engineers who were weeping openly at the end of the spacecraft really humanize the mission and so it made that human connection that maybe in the past you only got through astronauts now you recognize that robotic exploration is human exploration it's just that the humans are back on earth and the robots are going where humans can't currently go Joe Palca

"Began its life as Sojourner truth house of forbade women back in the seventies. I think even or in the eighties in its head of righty of different kind of connections with different kinds of violence against women and rape crisis centers. But the Sojourner family p center is an absolutely amazing place at has a variety of different providing shelter for women who needed from domestic violence situations. Outreach into the community in it does a wonderful and really needed steadily still really needed a job here in Milwaukee. Are of absolutely wonderful. Thank you for a thoughtful plug. I want your I think that the listeners are going to especially because we've never had a historian or pure where people are now listening to be like, oh my goodness. There's some large gaps here. And you have if I remember correctly said eighteen thousand different books. What if we were to? That's might be a little overwhelming for people. How about have you have three books out? There may be that that you would like to tell people little bit about with people are just wondering where to start and then they're eventually going to get through all of your what what's what's a good three to start with. Maybe maybe a little kind of diversity. So people can pick one or go a different track. You know, whatever, it's your. It's your yearbooks is my books already. First of all, I'll do the one that that that you've already mentioned, which is the concise history of the world which started out as I was complaining about world history. And I'm a convert to world history start out as European story. In the nice started say, we'll like why am I talking about Europe? So it's not the world we live in, and it's not my students, and it's not what Makia so, but as I started to do world history that most of the things tend to focus on political conomy that ended folks. A lot of stuff about what I thought was kind of traditional things and complained that there wasn't really a lot of social and cultural world history. And I thought okay, I just quit complaining I just to see if I can do it. So my concise history the world is my attempt to write a social and cultural history of the world from the paleolithic from a little bit about pre home sapiens human evolution from the paleolithic. Denault was out in twenty fifteen from Cambridge University press written for a general audience not written for for scholars because it's concise history the world, it's about three hundred pages. And you could see see if I did that. Okay. So there's one another one that I have which is coming out in fourth edition next year as called women and gender in the early modern world from Cambridge University press, the press will have if I plug them as well was wrong with the first through..

"Exactly. They can choose what they'd like. Okay. All right. What about food? We always look for non perishable food items. You know, if people who come to us who we shelter about six hundred women and kids a year, we served eleven thousand three hundred people last year. Oh, my God majority of which never lived with us. But we they are living at or below poverty. And so we give them bags of food when they need them or comfort and care items. We try to set them up in their housing when they're transitioning out of the violence, so food is important comfort items blankets, socks underwear again. As I said anything that you could think of that you need in your own home pots plates, sometimes get those large items at Christmas time. Okay. So if you're making a stop at Costco, or Sam's Club, just maybe pick up some extra things that could go in the kid's lunches, maybe or. Yes, exactly that they wouldn't normally get right? And we provide. Food at the center. I was also gonna say gift wrapping ribbons scotch tape. Any of those things might need. Okay. To wrap the presents. When they pick up the items and take them, home and good idea. So maybe pick up an extra roller wrapping paper when you're there shopping for the toys. Okay. So you gave us a variety of gift ideas for the women and children at the Sojourner peace center that'll help make a really nice Christmas for them and perhaps take their minds off their current situation. At least for a short time. But domestic violence is a as a pervasive issue all throughout the year in statistics show that it's likely that someone you know is being impacted in fact, one in three women and one in four men experienced domestic violence. Stay tuned to learn what we can do to shift the culture of violence in our communities..
