"Louie Garcia Navarro. Good morning and thanks for joining us today, police in Portland, Oregon, declared the ongoing protests. They're a riot overnight. After the Portland Police Association building was set on fire and exits to government buildings were blocked. Police told protesters they would risk being arrested if they did not clear the streets. For more than 50 nights, hundreds have been gathering in the city's downtown to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Last week, federal agents dressed in camouflage and tactical gear took to the streets, unleashing tear gas meeting protesters bloody and pulling people in tow, Unmarked fans. The state of Oregon is now suing several federal agencies, citing civil rights violations. Portland's mayor, Ted Wheeler, called the actions and attack on democracy and has demanded that the Trump Administration remove the federal agents from his city. I asked him if he's heard back. The only response has been from the interim secretary of Homeland security, and he's basically told us to stuff it. The problem were experiencing here is we haven't already heightened situation. It's already tense. But after nearly five weeks of demonstrations were starting to see that small handful of people who are engaged in criminal activity. It was dissipating. It was coming down. We believed a week ago it would be over by this weekend. What happened instead is. The feds stepped in with a very heavy handed approach, and it blew the lid off the whole thing. Mayor Acting's Homeland Security Deputy secretary Ken Cuccinelli spoke to NPR Friday night and he said that you quote hold back. You're law enforcement. Preventing them from using certain non lethal tactics. He cited 49 straight days of violence and destruction as justification for deploying federal agents are those accurate descriptions of your actions and what's unfolding on the streets of your city? You know again, it's rhetoric. It's the kind of escalating rhetoric we've seen from Donald Trump and the White House and he sent in the troops. Despite the fact that the governor are two United States senators myself is mayor and others have said. We don't need them and we don't want them. My residents don't know who a federal officer is a local police officer or a county deputy or a state comptroller. They don't know and they don't care. It's all the same to them. On Friday night after the federal police started gassing people. About 300 people came to my house and wanted to know why I allowed our police officers to gas people, which, of course I didn't and they didn't But there's a distinction without a difference in the eyes of the public, and I believe the president and his people know that. Well. The police in your city has also been criticized you about that There's no question that in nearly seven weeks of nightly demonstrations The police have done many things right and they've done something's wrong as well. But the difference between local and federal law enforcement is that we have clear policies clear directives. We have a complaint process. We have an independent accountability and review system with the federal government. They won't even identify who they are. We don't know why they're here. We don't know the circumstances under which they're making arrests. We don't know what their policies are. What accountability mechanisms There are to the point where even the U. S attorney here in the state of Oregon. Is calling for an investigation wondering where was the probable cause to pull these people off the streets in unmarked cars. Cuccinelli also said that this is a tactic that the federal government intends to continue, not just in Portland. And this is a quote but in any of the facilities that we're responsible for around the country, are you in communication with other mayors about this? Yes, I am. And what I can tell you is that this is coordinated by the administration. It appears to be a blatant abuse of police authority by the Trump administration is best is I can tell this is an effort a last gasp effort by a failed president with sagging polling data. Who's trying to look strong for his base, and so he is actually using the federal police function in support of his candidacy. That's Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Thank you Appreciate it. Georgia congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis served 17 terms that's right 17 although that hardly captures the scope of his public service. The son of Alabama sharecroppers. Lewis was a central figure in the civil rights battles of the 19 sixties, including the Freedom Rides and the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March. NPR's Debbie Elliot has this remembrance. John Lewis considered his native Alabama hallowed ground because of the blood shed there in pursuit of a transformation of America. For decades, the Democrat led bipartisan congressional delegations on annual pilgrimages to major civil rights sites in the state. That was a song that we used to say it in a radio. And they weren't either old Wallace. You can't jealous. All ain't afraid. DOJ On this 1996 trip, Lewis introduced his colleagues to the Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, a now deceased leader of the Birmingham movement. Lewis was arrested more than 40 times protesting segregation. He was involved in lunch counter sit ins freedom rides on interstate buses, and he was the youngest speaker at the 1963 March on Washington. We're tired of being beaten by a policeman. We're tied up in our people locked up in jail over and over again, and then you have to be patient. How long can we be patient? We want our freedom and we want it now.

"Platform to do that and to push our workout to the public but gatekeepers in these publishing companies that make it a challenge. And that's maybe we do all this self publishing but I'm Kinda you know we can have a conversation off line about how about that but Not Pulling on it but as a writer there are a lot of things that writes that you're kind of giving up and just your treatment of you as the author is just highly problematic. But he had to deal with the distribution which is very much now as part of the road for you because in addition to being a professor in which now you are formally family retired from. Yes but that doesn't mean that you are done doing this work so you give these lectures all over the place all over the country all over the world and then tab that you decided I'm going to be a content advisor and certified instructional designer which to me. I'm like we're that come from and so so what was the pathway that you decided to take and how how how you show up in these spaces as a person as a black woman doing the stuff having the pat pedigree that you have in your background but then entering this terrain that I can only imagine as highly gendered. It's highly gendered so I was on a editing eighteen when I moved back to Washington. DC from Ann Arbor Michigan when I left University Michigan and the editing team was comprised of me as a main editor and then a bunch of instructional designer and I got their work product. We redesigned training for Department of Transportation. And it was training mandated by the White House. Believe leave it or not and I can't even remember what the issue was but I looked at their work product and I said Oh they do exactly what we do every day as professors for a fraction of the cost. How do I get in on this? That's that little entrepreneurial slash Detroit all day every day we ought to hustle and I saw the invoices semester. Oh my goodness look at how much of these people for designing training using adult learning theory which you and I know as professors. We intuit wait what we know it either. By trial and error or formally educated. We have to learn learn adult learning theory and particularly if you leave by research one schools in tier one schools and you're suddenly teaching a to a population. It's really really diverse. In terms of their learning style. Always tell people you don't really have to know how to teach at Ivy League or research one or at your once school but you drop down to tier two or you go to a community college and it's a whole different ball all you have to know how to teach. I tried to rebrand myself and get jobs and I can never get jobs instructional designers I went back to Grad school as forget it. I'll go back to Grad school. I'll get credentials in instructional fractional design and as soon as I got those credentials I went out on the market and got all kinds of offers a couple of with my background as university professor the credentials. PhD The instructional design. Everything just opened up. And I feel 'cause daily people trying to bring me on project. I'm selective in the projects that I tell you a choose projects that like your projects that'll further whatever. My professional goal is like right now. I really really adobe captivate certified special which means I use adobe captivate software to design Online training and learning. I really WANNA master that so now. I'm just looking for our proud projects that allow me to use adobe captivate and really really learn it. She'll be certified as one one thing. Applying it on a daily basis. A whole different ballgame. Would that's interesting in and of itself in terms of just that pivot and the lack of fear that you had going in Dan as a university professor from University of Michigan to even Howard and then to say you know what. I'm GonNa do this other thing because has there are certain parallels to your point right where it's like. I have skills. That are transferable and that I think that is African descendants. We are pretty amendable and flexible in entrepreneurial too often times by You know it's just by reality right where you're going to instance where you have have to Kinda like okay I need to have. This is my main but I have these other thing on that. I'm interested in and that I need to do as part of my hustle but somehow still you dabble in the other spaces as well so that you're passionate around writing and your passion for traveling. Still you can still ignite those. Yeah I can But you know what I have to also give Kudos to my dad because the entrepreneur spirit comes from my father. Although my father had his undergraduate degree is in accounting and he was in graduate school for Masters Taxation. My father's main career was as a logistician and he was a top logistician for the Department of army until he retired but my father hit a point in his career where he got his career was going to become stagnant and he wasn't going to get promoted. So what is my father do started a trucking company because he had it on the accounting. Thank side he had a client wanted to start a trucking company with my father ran the numbers in tow the client. You really can't afford this so let me get the trucks and we'll either. I think they partnership and and so. My Dad ran a trucking company for years. His trucking company hop stale. I was just bookkeeper. Thank you talk on bookkeeping background to here. I am eleven twelve years old. I'm keeping in his book sin. I I started off just by sorting receipts and then. He taught me bookkeeper bound. So yeah so that comes from my father he was until my father moved to Metro of. DC my father always had multiple streams of revenue can see where you got your hustle thing. 'cause he's just like and then also of the time when your mom is a stay at home But then she's also the the captain of this ship right yes he also has a different type of responsibility and then still being able to be as a provider but then entrepreneurial right in being very selective in terms of the kinds of opportunities that he's GonNa take on that helps to support the family too and and you are still very close with your dad too so yeah. He's just such an inspiration in terms of lessons that you learned along the way failures that she experience in. How did you turn things around? And what continues to motivate you and doing the work that you're doing well. My first. Academic failure was in the eleventh grade because I got caught skipping school. He's I school to go to the library for probably about three weeks. Four weeks maybe the whole first half of the semester. So I I was having a little boyfriend and I knew better than a go get caught any place without because that was unacceptable so always told him meet me at the library and we will meet at the library. The Troy Public Library main aimed library on Woodward in the map section because it was quiet there and he would do his homework and I would do my homework and he would go to school and I sit there. You know. It's interesting that never called a truant officers on me because I was sick and then reliable the day. Wow well something happened that my father found out and although I had good grades because I will go to school to take my exams. My father told them to fail me in my three core courses for the first semester Chris. Connor Murphy so I got kicked off the team because of that wow. I was devastated devastating. I never felt like that again. I never did that Agai- and but my mother's proposal was since I was sixteen. Her proposal was allowed me to take the entrance exam going off to college for early. Admission and my father told me no I had to stay in highschool received a high school diploma but my mother realized that I was board was time for me to just go on to college so that was my first failure. It was a valuable lesson because I think when you're young and you're high academic achiever you need to fail at something because failure or if the part of life that you're not gonNA cheat all your goals and if you fail young you know how to recoup think if you fail when you're older after having had a lifetime of successes yes you don't necessarily rebound this easily do when you're younger.
