She identified with that caged bird with this tremendous impulse to fly to be free of that cage and while there were many ways in which she could not escape the immediate oppressions of her environment. She could test them through imaginary flights of literature. I know why the caged bird sings was released in nineteen sixty nine. Prior to nineteen seventy. Sexism played a role in who was allowed to tell the story of being black in America. Selwyn Kajo Professor of African studies at Wellesley College. If you look at all the major about was beat Frederick. Douglass beat Washington. One voice is a silent C. Doing here they were. They were just wise or they have made but they're they're never painted or printed or published or ticketed. Furious our executive director Joanne Cabin. There were very few autobiographical pieces. That I knew of by black women and so my Angeles was among the first. The power of Angelo story is that she is a black woman but the early black woman. Tradition really comes into being in nineteen seventy now significantly enough in one thousand nine hundred seventy a number of works come out that Torah. Give us a sense of women voices. For example you have twenty Morrison's the blues. I Nine Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy Maya Angelou. I know why the caged bird sings. We have Louis Missouri Woods Intensive daddy was a numbers runner. Nine Hundred Seventy Alice Walker. The third life of Grange. Grange Kuprin and of course. It ended of course in that very same year. Would Michel Wallace is very powerful. Work Black Macho and the mid of the civil in Angeles demonstrates all the forces a black woman still grapple with and what some call intersection today. Kimberly crenshaw form that theory to describe. How are overlapping? Social identities relate to structures of racism and oppression. She's already talking about intersection. -ality we just didn't have the terminology that Kimberly Crenshaw most brilliantly brought forth after the fact but she had illustrated intersection -ality without calling it that she called it a tripartite crossfire. The black female is assaulted in her tender years. All those common forces of nature at the same time that she is caught and the tripartite crossfire of masculine prejudice. White illogical hate and black lack of power..

relationships I thank you and first I miss Angela and yes ma'am I am not mine and sixty two years old I have a live so long and tried so hard that a young woman like you or any other has no you have no license to come up to me and call me by my first name for some the debate is not about what she said rather I am never here in the black person holding another black person around white I am never here for their from king of reads on you too I'm tired of respectability polity I am tired of this notion that just because someone has to have a plan I have to read them because it was more a matter of respect something racks is is Angela try to achieve the her writing so in the tradition of these leave for mothers and the women missionaries and ministers who wrote autobiographies before her she is negotiating for respect not merely for herself for herself yes but also for others like her that they might be recognized both as fully human and also as representing a spark of the divine you also can I talk about Angelo in only literary terms if you just see the the great actress that she was of the great dancer that she was a great musician that she was you Mister if you don't realize that this is a woman of tremendous faith and tremendous dependence on god I visited Reverend turn in his office when sent day after his church service she came to see me one day well it was summer we had our summer camp and I I knew her car had arrived at and she never showed finally went downstairs found her surrounded by kids wrapping you know DOT d'angelo could people try to do Dr Angelo could rap she had those kids and for all the albums you recorded way back before her writing career in nineteen fifty seven is one of the many reasons Angela is sometimes dubbed the godmother of hip hop she was speaking the times the struggle to a beat one miss calypso in nineteen fifty seven just drums and her voice on beat I don't know anyone who came before her at least within the recorded era of music that is music producer Shaun Rivera I'm sure that our ancestors kept history by putting words in stories to music because we couldn't write it down but as far as what we know is hip hop today my Angelo was the pioneer Rivera discovered Angelus back in two thousand and seven it was life changing and inspired caged bird songs an album he worked with Angelo on for seven years it was released in November twenty fourteen six months after her death the sounds are from our points some of which are based on experiences from the book she talks about you know that there's a long that girl in San Francisco by the Golden Gate she said she'd give me all I wanted but I just couldn't wait right and it made me laugh because for someone who seemed to be so presidential and prim and proper I didn't realize how she came from the same kind of streets yeah I was raised in and then some before they were what they are she became this I could connect with her through the book in a way that the poetry only alluded to.

"So Sweeney related the story before you got here, mean it was like a seventeen degree morning in Fayetteville for the LSU weekend. And I, I saw thousands of fans showing up at our event, and I mean, they were they were they didn't care what the record was. It was. It was it was a college football weekend against a big rival, and I'm not trying to say what happened to Clemson can be transferred. But I, I grew up across the river from from west Memphis, and I've seen that program win titles. And and, and. Because it comes from who exactly how you described it. I mean I it is doable. It is. I it's so doable. And but it's it's not an overnight doable. Right. It's, it's, it's a climb of the ladder, one rung at a time and, and to know that we're recruiting high-level develop young men on our roster continue to, to, to, to push the envelope. And, and as far as how we develop our players and the structure of our off season programs. And always look what's on cutting edge. But I'll say this. It is it is doable. And the, the thing that it that you wanna get and bring people into that mix and let them understand, is. Look, you're walking into place that you don't commit to plan for the university of Arkansas, you commit to plan for the entire state of Arkansas, and that's unique and not too many states can say now and, you know, we don't have a professional team in our state in, so our guys are put on a pedestal and, and for them to understand that and to know that they have an impact and family down in stamps, Arkansas or Eureka springs. And I mean, it's it's it is Jonesboro all over. It's our fan base is just phenomenal. And that's something that really has helped us in recruiting how tough was it for you, because I mean, you're, you're competitive guy, you didn't get to where you are. In college, and you certainly record high school is, is self evident to deal with, with some of the adversely last year because you can't just wave the white flag but I mean there were some pretty unwinnable games. Well, you know, we knew we knew coming in, it was going to be a tough year, but, but as I was mentioning just, just a second ago, as you look at our fan base all over and, and even into Missouri. We've got a great fan base Missouri and, and tennis. But and you knew that. They were they were hurting in, you felt it and not just in our state, but I'll all around or razorback fans and they were hurting and you knew when they were hurting I was hurting because they're so deserving of something to be so proud of. And, and so that, that was a that was a challenge. And actually, I used it more in flipped it more of a motivational of abysses, what's going to inspire me inspire staff, and keep keep our drive going? And so as I've traveled around this spring all over all all over state and outside our bordering states, I've shared that with them. And I said, they're, they're, they're, they're drive has really inspired us, and their passion level. And you just keep your head down Paul. Really? And just in. No. That what we're doing is right. We've done it before this is the third time we've done it just stay the course don't deviate who you are. It's a great message in. We wish you all the best.

Look, you're walking into place that you don't commit to plan for the university of Arkansas, you commit to plan for the entire state of Arkansas, and that's unique not too many states can say now and, you know, we don't have a professional team in our state in, so our guys are put on a pedestal and, and for them to understand that and to know that they have an impact and family down in stamps, Arkansas or Eureka springs, and it's, it's it is Jonesboro all over. Our fan base is just phenomenal. And that's something that really has helped us in Rudy, how tough was it for you, because I mean, you're, you're competitive guy, you didn't get to where you are. In college, and you certainly record high school is, is self evident to deal with, with some of the adversely last year because you can't just wave the white flag but I mean there was some pretty winnable games. Well, you know, we knew we knew coming in, it was going to be a tough year, but, but as I was mentioning just, just a second ago, as you look at our fan base all over and, and even into Missouri. We got a great fan base in Missouri and, and tennis. But and you knew that. They were they were hurting in, you felt it and not just in our state, but I'll all around or razorback fans and they were hurting and you knew when they were hurt I was hurting because they're so deserving of something to be proud of. And, and so that, that was a that was a challenge. And actually, I used it more in flipped it more of a motivational. This is what's going to inspire me inspire staff, and keep keep our drive going. And so as I've traveled around this spring all over all all over state and outside, our bordering steaks, I've shared that with them, and I said, they're, they're, they're they're drive is really inspired us, and they're passionate level and you just kept your head. Downfall. Really? And just in. No that what we're doing is right. We've done it before this is the third time we've done it just stay the course don't deviate who you are. It's a great message in. We wish you all the best. It's always good to see you coach, one thing, can we to this fall. Thank you could shed Mars. So joining us here in Destin as we begin to wind, things down a lot of great guests and certainly prochet coach coming by. We're up against a break back.

"For good thing. And then I go to the library, then as rabbis precent preaches and imams put to you think. But finally. I thought of United Nations when it was founded in San Francisco, I was seventeen and I would go down to where they would meet and watch the people go in and we had that semele Tena translators would be paid a hundred and fifty dollars a week to translate languages. I knew I had a pinch on for Mangla. Tis. And if I six foot tall black pregnant unmarried and educated I could go in that building. And I cry can you imagine what it felt like fifty years later to be asked not only to write a poem. But to come back to San Francisco to that building and deliver the point to the heads of state of the world. There's an African American tongue nineteenth century, which is so great. It says when it looked like the song running our shine anymore. God put her rain bowl in mcleod's imagine at I've had so many rainbows in my. I had a lot of clouds, but I have had so many rainbows and one of the things I do when I step up on stage. When I stand up to translate when I go to teach mat classes when I go to direct the movie, I bring everyone who has ever been kind to me with me. Black bright, Asian Spanish, speaking native, American gay straight every answer. Come with me. I'm going on the state come with me. I need you. Now. Now, did you see I don't ever feel? I have no help I've had rainbows in my clowns. And the thing to do it seems to me is to prepare yourself. So that you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you may not call on the same name Yukon guy, if they call and got it all. You see and may not eat the same dishes prepared the way you do may not dance your dances, speak your language, but be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think every human being at some point. We'll have clouds in their lives some darker than others. The things that my Angelo's taught me about finding the rainbow in the cloud is that you can go through the cloud. You go round the cloud or above it. No matter how the light is always there. The light is always there yours to seek and to find. I don't know anyone who understands the power of words, more than my Angelo. I've been in her home at a party and someone telling a homophobic joke or making fun of someone in a derogatory way and watched her invite them to leave or. Stop them in mid sentence and say not in my house. You won't birds are things am convinced. You must be careful about the to us. Are the words you allowed to be used in your house in the otas cement? We had told in Genesis that in the beginning was the word and the word was God. And the word was with God. That's in Genesis bird, two things must be careful careful about coning people out of their names using racial pejoratives in sexual pejoratives in all that ignorance don't do that some day. We'll be able to measure the power of words, I think there are things. I think they get on the walls. They get in your wall paper, they get in your roads, and your upholstery and your clothes and fan in the into you. When have is three and my brother fine.
