I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes. Over time in for us, it's a three to five year period with benchmarks and timelines and touch points. To see where are in how they are evolving

Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

So great to have you. Here, thank you. We're really excited to talk about a mood. It's such an interesting and important project. I'll give a little bias in that. I'm really interested in this in particular because I've been on the board of Sfar for many years, which is the issue of the Torah Academy, the Talmud Academy for lgbtq folks are that comes out of the Experience Lgbtq Q. Folks. It's probably a better way to say it and. When I first heard about a mood I was so excited to hear that there was something that seemed similar from edge use of color perspective. So it's something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time that both of us have and and we're really thrilled to finally have this opportunity. So Mirror I was wondering if we could start with a little bit of the origin story of a mood. In, two, thousand, eighteen, I was invited to be in the Selah Cohort fifteen of bend the arc four juice of color by Jews of color and there I met Ya McCoy will meet her the year previously. And part of that training. Was a study that we that she called. J O C. Tour Academy. And it was several afternoons where we would look text from an anti oppression lands, and at the end of that hurt I was sitting with you who the webster was hard the cohurt. We looked at each other and I said, why does this have to be only part of this training? We need this to be real, and so we started talking with start talking about that. So that was may of two, thousand eighteen. By June or July. Are Corman had come back from Israel at, pass it to you. I did a fulbright year in Israel I live in.

Added belts deeply important but you huda one up to me and he said what if instead of just having your class, we actually create a container for this kind of learning to happen more often. and. So that really launched the idea of. Jesus, Colored Tour Academy, which became a mood colored tour academy and we started out by a every other week having a person in the community, a Jewish person of color in a community teach whatever they wanted and we we started her first Beta run I'm really got to see what what kinds of topics were interesting. How did the groups of people showed up for different topics differ in and we basically got to conduct all this research We launched our first full year after the high holidays. This past fall in two thousand nineteen. And we just completed our first full year of classes. We got here because for as long as there have been Jewish. People color navigating predominantly white Jewish space the roots have been growing and deepening. People like you. Huda. Myself were able to found something like this because of all that work that had been happening. JESSOP. Color entering wet Jewish is being Jewish spaces and also getting to know one another.

How One Covid-19 Victim Was Lost in the Chaos
"Images and stories from the pandemic that will be seared into many people's memories forever. One of them was the discovery in April of rental trucks, holding dozens of dead bodies out a funeral home in New York City. The people found that day were victims not just of the coronavirus, but of a system overwhelmed one of them was seventy two year old nathaniel hallman. He lived in the Bronx with his wife Mitzi. They were married for forty two years. He repaired whirlpool appliances and in retirement he and his wife or a Deacon and deaconess at the Church of the Meek Baptist. Harlem they visited. visited the sick and shut ins in early April at the height of the pandemic and New York City home in was at a Rehab Center in the Bronx, where he was diagnosed with nineteen, the sent him to the hospital next door where a few weeks later he succumbed to the disease, but that's not where the story ends. It's where it begins our reporter Michael Phillips. He died on April Seventeenth, at Saint Louis Hospital and his goddaughter hope who is a very astute person. decided she would take responsibility for making sure that he was cremated and taking care of and and so his wife is widow. mitzi wouldn't have to do it. And so hope was under the impression that she had only seven days to get his body in the hands of funeral director, or the hospital would give the body to the city, and the city would bury him in a mass grave on Hart Island, which is a the Potter's field for New York City. One hundred and fifty years that the people have been left behind have been buried on on heard island. And, so she thought okay I've got a week to find somebody to take care of the body, and she started calling funeral homes, and they were all full. This was the height of the epidemic of hundreds and of New Yorkers were dying at a day on the day that that Daniel died three hundred eighty four New Yorkers died. And so the funeral homes would just overloaded. She called something like twenty funeral homes, and they all said we can't take him. Her Middle Son was even doing an internship at a Newark New Jersey funeral home and they were full to take Nathanielsz bodies. So she grew more and more panicky over the course of the week, and she contacted a family friend Reverend up in Connecticut, Marshall, Morton and Reverend Morton being in the you know the business of of being a clergyman new number of funeral home directors called up an old contact that he had named James Robinson. Mr Robinson worked out of a funeral home in Neptune City New Jersey as well as one in Brooklyn. And so he said, according to Reverend Morton I'll take care of this for you. I've got it and please. Please take the body down to my funeral home in Neptune. So the Reverend and hope son managed to find a funeral director, who would could drive the body out of New York to Neptune New Jersey Neptune city. And deliver it just before the what hope thought was the deadline at the hospital. They get the body out of there, so they took the bodies of Neptune city Mr Robinson the funeral director was not there. A person who was there said I'm sorry. I can't accept this body. They called up. Mr Robinson the funeral director. And this is where there's a lot of disagreement about what took place, but from the point of view of the family and Reverend Morton. What happened was Robinson said. I didn't mean for you to take it to. New Jersey Take my place in Brooklyn, this is something that that Mr Robinson disputes. He says he never said such a thing. The driver took the body up to Brooklyn to a funeral home called likely funeral services on UTICA avenue in Brooklyn. He dropped the body off there with the people who were there. They put it in. A refrigerated truck was parked on the street. And the family assumed everything was OK at that point. The body was supposed to be cremated on the twenty ninth so a few days later. And when hope called the the crematory to ask whether or not or godfather had been had been cremated, she got an answering. Machine were closed for maintenance the next day. She got answering machine message, but Never received confirmation he had been cremated. During this time news broke about all these bodies in Brooklyn in U. Haul trucks, and that was the same address where they had dropped off Mr Hallman. So hope began to panic and put things together. She called up the Reverend. The Reverend put things together. They all started to worry and at that point they tried to get Mr Robinson to explain where the body was. They tried to get a funeral home to explain where the body was tried to get the city. Medical Examiner explain where the body was, and they just couldn't find. It took until the fifth of May until. Finally learned that her godfather's bodied Nathaniel Hamad's body had actually been in the back of an unrefrigerated u-haul truck left on the street in Brooklyn, just a horrible horrible discovery, and it wasn't the end for Nathaniel. Family, who then spent several weeks trying to get his body and arranged for his final resting. What happened after this? There was another misstep when the bodies were discovered at the funeral home. In the U.. Haul trucks hope called the city medical examiner's office. They had come over. You know when the when the police got there and the after nine one one call reporting bodies and trucks on the street. You know hope called everybody. She could find the governor's offices. The attorneys general of the State of New Jersey and New York. You know. Where's My Godfather? And when she called the medical examiner's office, they had already collected sixty one bodies from the trucks and from clerk. Lee's funeral home itself, including many that would simply on the floor in various states of undress, and on the floor of the Chapel at the funeral homes just loaded with bodies. And so she when she called the medical examiner's office, they went through the list of all the bodies. They retrieved from the funeral home from the trucks. And Nathaniel Holman's name was not on the list, so for days and days she couldn't find out where he was. She even went over with Reverend Morton to the funeral home. Mr Clearly was not there at the time. Mr Robinson was not there at the time and she said. My father was here. Where is he and couldn't couldn't get an answer? And, what happened was and the fifth of May. That medical examiner's office discovered that the name on his paperwork had been reversed as hallman nathaniel so when they had looked up the bodies they had. When hope it call then they looked in their record, says he will what bodies we have. Do we have in home? It came up as a negative. The only had a home in faneuil. And by the fifth of May, they figured this out, and now remember he died on the seventeenth of April, so we're no weeks into this, and only then does hope discover that. In fact, her godfather had been in one of trucks and was now in the care of Medical Examiner's office. At that point, the the medical examiner said look. We have him safe. He's in. You know in cooled unit, so he's he won't decay. To be blunt about it. You can leave them here until you find a funeral director. WHO's able to cremate him? which is what the family wanted to do, so they held onto him and it wasn't until five weeks after his death. I think thirty nine days exactly after his death that they were able to get him cremated, and now his ashes are in an urn that his his widow Mitzi keeps at her bedside Michael. What else did you hear from city officials in response to this as well as from the quickly funeral home. The state authorities suspended Mr Claes. Licensed to act as a funeral director, and then held a series of hearings online hearings to decide whether to permanently revoked his license for you know poor practices, the ruling has not yet come out. They've had three hearings and the lawyers have submitted final closing statements, but the administrative law judge has not yet ruled on whether to revoke his license in listening to the at least one of those hearings, and in talking to Mr.. Claes attorney, he's basically the the argument is they were holding the bodies in the U. Haul trucks as they were moving them from the refrigerated truck which was. Recognized waited two whole bodies into the funeral home to be packaged up four cremation. And so he said we would keep them in the in the U. Haul trucks for a while and then move them. It was hard I think for the prosecuting attorney. I guess he'd be called the prosecuting attorney. Understand that because the argument is why not just move them from the refrigerated truck all the way into funeral home instead of stopping. This is just a matter of a few yards, so stopping and putting them in a truck. Mr Quickly. That's Mr Clarke's defense as well as his lawyer said to me. Look the whole city was inundated with bodies. Just wasn't enough. Space to handle the mall and so things happen. And he said that he thought it was unfair that his client Mr clinically was being singled out when so many other funeral homes were also overcrowded in his in his argument. So, that that is his defense Mister Robinson's defense. He has not been charged with any anything by the state. He has not been his has not been suspended, but in talking to him, his argument is. I never had that body. I never signed any paperwork saying that that body was under my control so everyone who says that I did agree to take control of Mr. Hammond's body is line. That is his argument. There are text messages back and forth in which he says that he would take care of the body, but he also said and give me the paperwork, so there's now a lawsuit underway Msci Hallman and hope dukes. Who is the the Goddaughter of Daniel? Hallman have filed suit against the he quickly home as well as Mr. Robinson And are seeking damages for what they describe of course as mistreatment of Nathaniel remains. Michael as you say, and as you've heard from many of the people in this story, Nathanielsz body was one of dozens discovered in rental trucks during the height of the pandemic. What did reporting out the story and what happened in this one case? Tell you about what happened here in New York at the height of this. So, what are your takeaways from this tragic story? This won't come as a surprise to anybody but. When the pandemic really hits and went really hit New York. Hardest I. At least in the United States of course. It just overwhelmed the system. The city and the people who who manage these things would just not ready for overwhelming the doctor. Was Internal Internist resident at Saint Barnabas Hospital. Who took? Mitzi up to see Nathaniel before he died is she would cry constantly into her. into a mask and goggles because there's just so much misery. All around her. And the same situation occurred with with the body's. Just the city. Wasn't prepared for the awfulness that that's that hit it. I can't judge whether they should have been more prepared. Or there was some mistake making made made at some point. That's not really within my capacity to judge. But, certainly, it was overwhelmed. And that meant that there are a lot of a lot of collateral damage and. Michi and hope, and of course Nathaniel himself were part of that collateral damage, and now I think. Between lawsuits and historians and journalists looking back at what happened. We'll start to peel that apart and figure out. Who did what who could have done things that were you know could have done things better and who who? Who did the best they could?

Journalists of Color
"Before the interviews I wanNA share my theory. For why all of this exploded for journalists of Color Right now? It goes back a few years. So many of us went from covering the first black president to covering Donald Trump. And ever, since trump came down that escalator, announcing his campaign back in Twenty fifteen, when he denounced Mexicans as drug traffickers rapist. When he was that he would build a wall at the border and that Mexico will pay for it. Those journalists were told to avoid using words like racist or lie to describe some of trump's worse behavior. That kind of self censorship, especially on race for a lot of us, it became untenable after we had to cover the death of George Floyd and report on that video of a black man, being choked to death for eight minutes. On top of that we are now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which is laying bare racial inequities across this country. And Corinthian has given a lot of us time to sit and think. Notice what's going on in the world and in our lives and in our newsrooms? You have black journalists and other journalists of color who think of themselves as truth seekers in the same way that their white colleagues, too, but very often when they tell the truth about racism when they tell the truth about. Bright, white supremacy. They're labeled as activist. Highs! They dared to bring their blackness across the newsroom threshold. PSORIATIC McDonald's has been thinking a lot about race and the news. So I asked her as a black journalist in this moment. What does she want to see change so I would say what I want is actual structural change within newsroom leadership? I do not want the equivalent of painting black lives matter on a street in yellow letters, but in a newsroom. It's visible. By that doesn't really solve anything when it comes to pay discrepancies between. White male journalists and black female journalist who do the same job have the same level of experience and one is making thirty thousand dollars a year more than the other. The other thing is that. You cannot have. Newsroom leadership that is completely made up of six Cheddar straight white men. Even. Under straight white women. Zicklin or gender straight Whiteman that power needs to be distributed more equitably. You know the other thing died. I want to see I wanNA see US cover. Race honestly. right? Race isn't just something that black people, experience or something that non white experience, attempting that everyone experience and says and so. There needs to be a baseline of literacy rate when it comes to how we talk about race with an America how it operates within American history, and how that informs. President and what world. News media has played in that way. We have to consider that. The last time that we had a pandemic, the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. We need to recognize that. The paper of record in Chicago the Chicago Tribune. Is Basically scapegoating black people who are fleeing the American south, basically saying Oh half a million darkies are basically invading Chicago. If that's objectivity as not the kind of objectivity that I want to participate in them. Yeah, yeah, I WANNA get personal a little bit You ended up being quoted in New York Times. Article about this reckoning talking about how you didn't have a great time at the Washington Post. You've tweeted about your experience as a black woman in newsrooms. What does this reckoning meant for you? And what have you been trying to get off your chest and this moment about your experience? In some of the newsroom's that we've been talking about my hope for this reckoning. is that. There is not one more class of you know young. Ernest! Twenty two year old coming out of journalism school I'm who basically have to go through this really damaging gauntlet. We're constantly sort of questioning yourself and your own worth and I think there are a lot of really talented journalists who have been driven from the field. Because at some point, they feel like they have to make a choice between their own mental health. Or being journalist. And they just self-preservation and I cannot blame them. and that is really a shame, because think about the people that those journalists now think about the stories that they could have told. The access they could have had picked the access to walk into certain spaces at their white colleagues cannot exactly and you know one of the ways, and this is not the only way that this is important, but one of the ways that this is important is. We need them to trust us. Our job is to tell their stories and to tell them accurately and to tell them fairly. And if people are are always getting pushed out the folks who might actually be able to empathize with them who know where they're coming from right I? There's a quote from their lake when I fall where she basically expresses the you know, she's probably the only person who covered public housing who's actually lived in public housing? That, yeah, that is. Expertise right that is. Valuable knowledge so I just I want us to be able to practice our profession with humanity. Yeah, and also it's like in this moment where it seems like more than ever before. At least in my lifetime, there is such a deficit of trust. Americans don't trust institutions. They don't trust journalism. They don't trust facts. Worst argument about whether or not mask can prevent the spread of Corona virus like in this environment if newsrooms don't act in fix some of this stuff. is going to create more mistrust in the media and these news outlets will become less relevant in a moment in which I would argue. They are needed more than ever before. Yes, and you know the thing is is and I've said this repeatedly at that American journalism does have a credibility crisis. The the credibility crisis that we have I think. Actually bears a lot of similarities to. Our current sort of Voter disenfranchisement problem. Being. In Journalism, we have not spent enough time. with the very same folks who are often disenfranchised when it comes to media coverage as well right. And when we think about the press and freedom of the press is an instrument of democracy we have to think about. enfranchising everyone, we have to think about making sure that they do find us credible. The folks. If they look at the newspaper, even look at a website or they listen to the radio and their conclusion is. That these entities are not telling the truth about them in their lives and held their lives are. For them yeah for them. That's a credibility issue for us. Yeah we can fix. It failed them. That means that. We have to develop far better relationships with folks who have historically been shunned or shut out of district of media coverage are only allowed to participate in very limited ways. You know I still very much believe in that adage, the journalism exist to comfort the afflicted and afflict comfortable. Thanks again to riot, not at McDonald's the culture writer for the undefeated and also this year. She was nominated a pilot sir. My mind. I wanted to hear from other journalists of color about their newsroom experiences. And they wrote in. Here if you, my name is Lavi Cima Guy side. I'm a naturalized citizen who came to this country as a young child. I worked at a bare he a newspaper for a long time and have fond memories of my time there. I had mostly white editors, and in fact, I've only had one non white supervisor in my over two decades in journalism. My name is John. Sepulvado, I mixed. I have Mexican Irish indigenous and Black Ancestry I worked in public media for fifteen years. There are tons of horror stories. There was the white woman editor who asked me if I like dog-fighting because she quote hurt. Might People like dogfighting? There was another white woman editor told me to smile more around the office because I quote have dark features and those dark features, scared herself and other white women around the office. One time a headline I, wrote for one of my own stories, led to a newsroom wide, meeting an emotional one, where a bunch of US had to persuade top editors to let us call the president's racism what it is! The most frustrating part was that I and others had to explain to our colleagues. Why our voices were important. And partly because they reflected the communities we covered. argued. Repeat, a thousand more stories like that. But at. A point I realized. That no matter what I did no matter how good I was no matter how hard I worked. I would always be seen. As something that is not. White. And my mobile was the leave the industry. All right time for a break. When we come back, we will hear from Latina, trailblazer who refused to leave the news business.

People still find it really interesting salmon like I'm like no. No I. I was the first Latina in the newsroom at NPR ever to step foot. WHO WASN'T CLEANING IT? That was me right that that was that. Was this Latina? That is Maria. She's had a long career in media, not just here NPR but also at CNN NPS in two thousand ten. She founded her own company for total media. And she has a memoir. It's called once. I was you that comes out in September, but most of you probably know Maria. As the host of a very long running public radio show turned podcast from NPR and through media. It's like new USA mighty. Hossack Latino USA has been around since the early nineties. It is attributed by NPR. which is why you hear NPR in the credits, but that will be changing USA is moving. As distributor. It means nothing's GonNa Change for you. Our listener that our audience is going to get way way way bigger. We're very excited. Announcement might have been confusing for listeners, but don't worry like. She said you'll still be able to hear the show. But the Journal of Color, especially in public radio that move meant that NPR was losing a hugely influential show dedicated to covering Latino stories in the US. And from its founding NPR has been well bad on race. More than seventy percent of NPR's newsroom is white and of the sources you here on NPR's air, those voices they are more than eighty percent white. People of Color who work in public media? We have been saying for years. Fix this including Maria Hosa. We're asking the question. Are you listening? Are you hearing? And that his own ready a power dynamic that is wrong. This notion is the assumption that they the they will always have the power I. Ask Maria what Latino USA leaving NPR means for this network, but I I asked her about blazing trails. One could see your path to be one of color who found her own company as a shining success, but one could also see your path as proving that the conventional spaces in media can accommodate of voice like you the way they should you know like. I'm so proud of what you're doing, but also the fact that you have to make your own production company shows at the NPR's and the PBS's and the CNN in many ways. Don't get it and can't help people like you tell the stories that you need to tell. I was thinking about that as I was thinking about our interview Sam because. My husband calls me Aguirre, a warrior, and then as I was thinking about our conversation, Sam. I was like well. That's great i. like that, but you know what I don't want. Journalists of color to have to be warriors at into order to be able to work as To work as journalists of Contians, who can bring their entire cells into the news room? Who are going to be seen who are going to not only be seen and heard but actually. Put into positions of power to be the ones who are listening and making the decisions about. Yeah, we want that story on the front page and the headline is going to say that exactly. I want you you know everyone has been using it. Everyone's been going to twitter sharing their reckoning story, the slight the knocked in that promotion. The being told you can't do this do that. Give me one of your reckoning stories from your career when I when I come to this country, I'm born in Mexico. My whole family's born in Mexico. We're raised on south side of Chicago. You know sixties and seventies, but as Mexican immigrants we also understood the essential nature of journalism and American independent journalism and so. My father was watching. Meet the press every Sunday and we were watching the today show and we watched sixty minutes, and because of the fact that it was so American in holding people accountable and I was like that's what journalism is so long. Story Short is many years later actually a decade ago go to sixty minutes when I'm out of work and needed a job actually and. They basically like look, can you Can you come back and talk to us? When one of the old white guys get secret is really and I, said and I just remember like. Like am I supposed to laugh? It's funny. Is that a joke as being? and. As we do in the media's people of Color, 'cause we're really good at laughing things off. Like. Yeah. Banter you know the the the the the we're so smart. On. Exactly Racism! Exactly. And I got into the subway at fifty ninth street onto my apartment in Harlem and I cried on the train. and. I was just like, but I am not. You know I'm knocking to let this take me down. And that was the moment that I decided to create food. Media Winds Rams history. Takes over Latino, USA. And Expands Latino USA grows the show and let the USA's audience twenty seven years in. Is in a continual upward trajectory. You love to see it. As I. Want to ask more about what needs to happen. We are in this moment now. Where so many journalists coming forward with their stories? But it's still unclear what newsroom leaders will actually do to fix this stuff you have been on all sides of media for profit nonprofit. Give me like a checklist of the big three or four things that mass media should do right now to effectively respond to the issues raised in this reckoning. Feel like this is a moment to be having that difficult conversation, which is pushing this reckoning that we're talking about to another level. I'm going. Give you an example, Sam it brings me joy, it brings me no joy to have to ask white men in senior editorial positions how they consider my role as a Mexican immigrant woman journalist. In relation to a president who insults every single one of those things that I do? And and And basis a lot of that on his white supremacy. Which is very challenging word to even use in our newsrooms right, but yeah. I don't feel comfortable saying it. I want you to feel uncomfortable having to answer that question. Because his white supremacy does not impact you in the way, it impacts me, and I am a journalist just like you. I am an equal journalist just like you so now. You helped me to figure out. Harmon handle that because that that impacts our might quote unquote objectively, you have to be able to recognize that you do not have an ownership of activity or an ownership of the media or an ownership of public media, or it's not yours to share yeah. Did any of the issues we've discussed about. In diversity and Unfair situations that journals of have to deal within this industry. Did those factor into your business decision. To leave NPR ex. Look I've had you know NPR's my family? IF NPR calls I'm going to say when you I was absolutely and Bureau Sam he's my family. You know we hung out once, but he's. He's my brother. Because we're digesting PR so NPR's my family Mi. Familia was my first job. But You know I started a company. And I have a team of very savvy business and media executives journalists. And when they said look, we have an opportunity here in in a competitive marketplace A. Somebody PR X.. Who wants to really go big? Yeah, I will say you know they are all of these. Underground email channels and slack channels and discussion boards were journalists of color are coming together to talk about all these issues and there's been a lot of chatter about your show. What says about NPR yeah? Why am I so disconnected? Oh my God. I thought I. Thought I was like connected because I'm on twitter and I got a fat. And what folks have been saying? People who love your show Oh my goodness. They're saying well. This speaks to the larger problems. NPR has always had with content may for people of Color. They don't market it enough. They don't support it enough. You have these program. Directors at various stations put a show like yours on at not great hours. This is the stuff that people are saying. Do you I mean like to the extent that you can elaborate on it, you know. Did you feel like NPR? Neglected or didn't promote enough your type of show. So of these issues at play with the race and diversity in space like NPR. Again. Let New USA right now is growing an audience at kind of extraordinary numbers I think we're one of the few public radio programs or previously distributed by NPR. That is growing an audience at these numbers. And so the fact that. We made this decision. Says everything about. WHAT NPR. Kind of thinks. About letting USA. Now having said that I don't know you know I. Don't know the internal finances at NPR. Maybe NPR's is is really facing a a real financial challenges that I'm not privy to. And so you know, but but when you're thinking about AH, show, that has this kind of. Audience Commitment There was a point not long ago. When one of your colleagues called me up, actually she works in. She's a Latina colleague at NPR in the newsroom, and she called me up and she said. Do you think that Latino USA has been this incredibly successful because of NPR or despite NPR. And no one had asked me that and I kind of like. ooh And I said well actually despite. Despite NPR, do you think you know 'cause? There are a lot of shows not produced by NPR. Distributed by NPR. Do, you think other shows like that in your same boat that were hosted by white people or felt to maybe India leadership more mainstream. Do you think they got more support than your show did pound for pound? Yeah How does that make you feel? Like I said, that's why. I didn't. See I've been feeling this for a long time, my love. News, so Gimme a word for the emotion. Well right now I'm glad that I'm with a partnership with Pr X.. That's not gonNA units not on the table so I'm like I'm looking to the future. That's why I'm like yeah I'm all about like? It's all about the dodge this morning, boxing teacher. was making us do the we've the. We've the constant, which by the way is really really hard, and that's just how I feel is a journalist of color in a survivor Mexican immigrant woman in this like it's always like whoo. Okay well and so. That stuff that you're saying like. How does it make me? That's rolled off me a long time ago, and it is a central part of what has moved me as a journalist as a woman of color in this country is that. Is like. Oh, you're going to try to silence me or tell me that I'm not objective or tell me that I have an agenda or tell me that is not going to be successful or tell me. Okay I might go home and cry. But I'm not GONNA give up. Thanks, again to Maria Hinojosa. She's the host of the Tino USA. We asked NPR for a response to what Maria told us and they gave us this statement. We have the highest respect and admiration for the Latino USA team and from Maria Hinojosa. We are proud. That Latino USA originated at NPR member station, K. U. T., and that since nineteen, ninety-four NPR has been the program's national distribution partner today, hundreds of NPR member stations bring the show to their listening communities. We are grateful. Maria entertain who are produced a consistently wonderful show and nurtured journalist who have gone on to work all over the public radio system. We are glad public radio listeners will continue to hear Latino. USA on their public radio stations across the nation. All right now. We're going to have a chat with someone who just began working with NPR Kelly. McBride NPR's newest public editor. I WanNa talk with her. About one particular part of this entire debate, the way in which we've been taught as journalists to do our jobs that most fundamental level leads to systemically racist outcomes. I am talking specifically about the idea of journalistic objectivity. This idea that reporters only report the facts. They keep themselves out of the story, and they eliminate all biased in their coverage. A lot of folks say well. That only works if you're man and straight. And White. I wanted to find out. Why are journalism so entrenched in objectivity and whether or not this standard is fair, so I went to one of the top journalism at experts in the country I am the senior vice president at the POYNTER institute. I am the chair of the Craig Newmark Center Ethics in leadership at the Poynter Institute and I am also the public editor for NPR that Kelly McBride. Kelly has advised newsrooms about difficult journalism ethics problems for years, so it made. Made, sense to begin by asking Kelly for her definition of objectivity in journalism, it really means that you will objectively pursue the facts in order to determine the truth, and there's all sorts of things that go into that right like there's how you frame the story how you identify who you're going to interview, and then really important is who else is involved in the story. So who edits it because that the the safety nets that are created in newsrooms are meant. To help an individual program against her own bias now the problem is if all the safety nets have the same biases that that doesn't happen right and that's. That's exactly what's been happier. Also objectivity has come to mean certain different things for different journalists. There are some. Who say well objectivity means that you have to. Pretend! That kind of you don't exist, and you have to just simply say what these powerful people are saying doing. You don't provide context you don't provide analysis. It's a kind of. Totally taking yourself all the way out of it to the point where you won't even tell people if you vote or not. And I think. This is the thing for me like there's so many different interpretations of what objectivity means, yet you know that's actually kind of a confederation of two different principals in journalism, so one is the principle of objectivity in this idea that that we are pursuing the truth in spite of our own biases, and that that we actually promised, swear to God that we're going to get it right because we have all these safeguards in place, even though they've failed numerous times in the past. But the other thing is is that in American journalism in particular? It was built on this business principle of aggregating A. Politically diverse audience, and then selling that audience to advertisers, so in in Europe you see much more you see much more of the journalism coming through a political lens because that's just how the business model grew up over there, but over here especially as in different markets, you went from multiple newspapers to a single newspaper. There was this motive that was really a business motive that you would bring in the entire political spectrum and if you were going to do that, you needed to convince that audience that you in the newsroom didn't have. Any particular biases it is refreshing to hear you as a leader in the industry acknowledged that some of this is about the principles and bedrocks of our journalism, and some of it's about business, and at the end of the day for whatever reason we have ended up with a definition of objectivity. That is as much about business as it is about telling the truth and I think what frustrates so many journalists, somebody younger journalists, journalists of color or women require journalists as at newsroom leaders are resistant to acknowledge that I read NPR's social media policy, and it's couched in terms of ethics and morality and idealism. But I also know that part of it is the bottom line is. Not Do anything of the public facing person at NPR. That would possibly damage NPR's revenue streams. And I mad. They don't just say that. Yeah? They don't mean to say that they. Don't I mean that's the thing is they? Don't. They really do believe, and I actually believe also that there is. That there is a line somewhere that we shouldn't cross, and maybe it is way up the continuum on just. If you're a political reporter. You can't help people who you're voting for. Maybe the line is all the way over there. Right, because of imagine that like if you were a political reporter in you were covering. Trump's campaign and you again. I'm voting for Biden though I was that guy. Did you tell people out loud. I didn't tell folks voting for in two thousand sixteen, and I wouldn't but I think gets. Those are the ones where I think everyone can agree, but there's there's there's other things like how much of me do I. Bring to a story when I'm covering police violence against black men. Am I allowed to say that's racist. Because I know what racism is experienced, it trust me and don't make me say racially tinged. Like those, and that's where it gets murkier well. You know you know where I. I experienced this. Yeah, so when gay marriage was was a hot hot issue, right? They were different cities or states that were making gay marriage legal. The Supreme Court hadn't yet decided in San Francisco the mayor of San Francisco. made it legal and a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle on a Saturday after weeks of covering it, the City Hall reporter went down and got a marriage license, and she was taken off the beat. Wow, and as in as an ethicist, right is a journalism ethicist. I was like wait a second. That can't be right. because. She was exercising in San Francisco. What was a legal right? You don't mean you didn't tell people who'd been divorced. They couldn't cover this issue because they'd you know somehow. Defiled the sanctity of marriage by? Getting divorced. So that was, that was where realized that you cannot penalize people for who they are. That's not fair. Yeah, because you end up with the only people that are untainted enough to do all the work are people who are only straight are people who are only men are people who have only gone to college and has a certain pedigree people who are an the deaths a problem, so bias is to right. It's just that we don't well. That's the thing, but these leaders aren't seeing those. Yeah, because they look just like them. I think now what is required to speak to the Syria. Systemic issues being raised in this reckoning. Going to have to be an acknowledgement that the movement toward writing these wrongs. It's going to be in some ways painful and you should do it anyway. From your conversations with newsroom leaders across the country. Do you think they're ready to accept that idea that this might hurt that? It might not just be. A statement and everyone shakes hands, and says sure good now now I mean nobody wants to voluntarily sign up for something painful. You do it because you know that what comes on the other side is worth head. There's individuals in every single newsroom who are part of the problem. Then somebody has to tell those people that if they want to keep their jobs, they have to stop being part of the problem, and that means that they're either going to have to be quiet. Or they're going to have to change or leave. Just leave well. That's I mean if they want to keep their job right like. Yeah and I've seen people. Who are these problem, people? I don't think I've ever seen any of them. Actually chain, but I've seen some of them. Learn to be quiet and let other people lead. And then they actually become the beneficiary. Of what comes after yeah. And then I. Think also so many lessons of me too I. Think are applicable to this meteoroid. Me To kind of work. Because a lot of folks were just literally canceled and they had to go, they were shamed. They were fired. And you said you can't be here anymore. And it was painful for them, and probably all the folks that liked them in love them but like. Sometimes, it's just that yeah. So my last question for you back to these two ideals that butt heads this idea of objectivity. But also this business idea of needing to be somewhat neutral to appeal to a large audience. And reworking probably reassessing, what objectively means a newsroom? What advice would you give to newsroom leaders? Writing up that next ethics guideline for their journalist about quote, Unquote Objectivity Post reckoning. Yeah, so this is where I'm supposed to come through with something really profound and I mean I. I am I. Am humble enough to say. That I don't have the answer yet. But I'm also arrogant enough to say that I believe after working through lots of really really hard ethics problems with newsrooms that I think we are going to find the answer and I think it's going to start by. Recognizing that there is a difference between. Revealing political bias. and. Revealing lived experience. And we need to start there and say your lived. Experience should not count as political bias. Thanks again to Kelly McBride joining us and thanks to everyone who, over the last week or so shared very very personal stories about life as a person of color in the newsroom. I heard from colleagues as well. And one thing one of those colleagues told me about all of this. She said so much of this work is convincing journalist. who think they've been doing it right for so long that maybe in some ways they've been doing it wrong. And then she said to me. This phrase really stuck with me, she said. How do you argue with the fish about the water there's. I. Don't know just yet how to do that. It's pretty difficult. It seems frustrating,

"harlem" Discussed on The Trip
"So now. I had to backtrack to my dad and that Tuesday. I made the decision to go and take care of him like round the clock because now no one's coming in the nursing supervisor was like let's try to get him into a facility so that he can get adequate care round the clock care We they wouldn't take him. Because of the virus he had he had ran fever which is part of the transition out phase and part also part of the cancer because the tumor is like an infection so the body will start to try to fight it. Which is where the fever comes from. But then also it's a symptom apparently of end of life so all these things I learned from this little pamphlet. They gave me which is crazy by the way they gave you a pamphlet. That's literally yeah. They came to meet me. They're like okay. We're GONNA come to the House on Mike. Okay good. They're like but we're not coming upstairs. That like you have to meet US downstairs. I was like okay so I'm laughing but it's really not funny like that's just an adverse reaction to other but What else can you die out there? And right on the corner of one hundred. Forty second and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. It's myself the nursing supervisor. The other nurse that was with him on the phone was the social worker for the four of us are having this conversation on the corner and they basically pulled out this book and I think it's called Gone from sight or something and it basically maps out. How the next month to two weeks to few hours. They're going to play out. And so it gives you all the details of how the person you're paying for is going to transition into death well and they just handed to you. They're like here's the book there's like you know. Look through it. It'll give you an idea of what you're dealing with their like. Start MAKING ARRANGEMENTS. Start calling funeral homes and see what you can do as far as getting that covered and you know we'll call you later and I was like okay. Goodness just on the street cornered dropped off like a like a package. Well let me ask you about the the you know that process. That would have been in this little strange handbook that they'd you you started calling funeral homes trying to figure out how to deal with with arrangements. What was that like in in the middle of this pandemic so we had A. We had a funeral home that we were scheduled to work with already so called and I said Hey. I think it's time you know. My Dad is nearing the end. They're giving him. You know maybe a week to a couple of days and so that was the first conversation and this particular funeral home. Venter's they also cared for my grandparents when the past so it's sort of like a family go to And so the initial conversation was we are at capacity. We don't we just don't have the space and I was like wait. What is that me? I don't wait. What do you mean other capacity? I don't like it didn't compute because I'm like a funeral home at capacity. What does that mean? So they're like you know we don't have any space for storage and the alternative to storage for a lot of these places was the city morgue don't know if you've seen the city morgue lately no. Ma'am it's now extended into the parking lot and there are several big giant tractor. Trailer freezers that they're using to store bodies so the ideal situation. Is You WanNa have a funeral home? Pick up your loved one and be responsible for their body until they you know either are cremated or there's a funeral but right now there are no funerals ten person situation with the funeral and I think you're not allowed to accompany them to the burial site. I think they take the bodies and they bury it for you and this is at a time when articles were coming out about Hartfield Yeah the Potter's field. The being the mass being the mass burial site for unclaimed bodies and bodies that couldn't be picked up or bodies that couldn't be processed Or couldn't be held at a funeral home. That's the alternative. Like a friend of mine. Right now is trying to get her mom out and they gave. They've given her a may first date there. Like you haven't told me I to retrieve your person arrows we're gonNA take them to her her island and she's just like I don't understand what that means she's like I don't. I can't find anyone to take their like well. Like that's they're just like all right. Well this will be to do. And that's right now just part of the process and I was like Hell No. This is not what we're doing their first of all my dad would be mad as shit if he knew that he was with all these people all over the place in a mass grave. I said no I live. We literally called maybe fifty funeral home. Fifty different funeral homes. I spoke to people in New Jersey. I call some in Connecticut. I called random places in New York City and everyone has the same story that their capacity and this was before they relaxed. Like the crossing state lines for cremation so I was also getting. We don't take bodies from New York City so I was getting that commentary to as I was calling off. State my goodness. How do you even mean putting fifty calls on anything is is something else? Got Exhausting just got exhausting boyfriends Alco for you because I I it was it was so triggering here the same thing over and over because now. I'm like what the hell are we supposed to do? If he dies here like are they even GonNa come pick him up? Who's picking him up. And where's he going to go so now aside from when is it's going to happen? It's what's GonNa happen after it happens so we ended up. We kept calling them every day because they were like. We really can't tell you until the day that it happens so we were just call every day and because benches neighborhood funeral home. We kind of focused on them the most because we figured since he's from the neighborhood and they knew my grandparents they would do the best to accommodate us so we just kinda put all our eggs in that basket and which is hoping for the best and so we happened to call them the day before and they were like you know. It's very possible that we could do this. And you know we went through the cost and what the process. It's going to be and they're like okay. You know give us a call and we should be okay some Mike. Okay and and just happened. The next day was when he passed that night he spiked a fever of like at almost one hundred six and I started to panic a little bit. Because I'm like I don't even know what to do like I don't know what this means. What does something else is going to start happening and called the visiting nurse service and I started spicing on the phone because I was like. I don't even know what I'm doing I was like. I'm not a nurse. Like what am I looking for? What's happening? I don't know what's happening so finally. She's like okay. We're going to have a visit. I'll call you back though they call you back on face time and you have to show them. You know the patient and you have to do things that they're telling you to do like it's very strange to me. Do It's bizarre. Sob Did die. And then she's explaining to me. You know the time is coming near you know. Make sure you do this you know. Make sure to continue to give him as morphine. She's like we're gonNA pull back these meds and we're going to up the time on these meds. Now have to make adjustments in the log book so. I know that we're not giving him these meds anymore. It's just this And then I didn't really sleep that night. I took a light now because I felt like I had to sleep with one eye open. Like I really didn't sleep that much because you're constantly with one eye open in case you missed something. You don't hear something on my quitting he's choking I don't know you just there's no comfort in any of it And then like five o'clock that morning he was like a little restless so then I just started you know telling him I say you know like okay you know just giving him the okay talk and it's fine and like okay ago. You know because I feel like he was waiting there and I'm telling him you know I'm going to be okay. The girls are okay and just like showing him pictures in China you know. Just come for him into the idea of. It's okay for you to go. Go give him his morphine settled down a little bit and then it was time for the virtual call as I was on the phone giving him. His virtual visit is at the exact moment that he passed from a spiritual aspect. He lives in my grandmother's old apartment. And I felt like my grandmother was there like I could smell her a couple of days before. I know it sounds bizarre but I know she was definitely in the house like I could smell her like I was in the kitchen and I went to walk out and it made me turn back around and look and I was like okay so mike. It's probably going to happen soon. Like from a spiritual aspect. Because I feel like she definitely was present when this was happening and so my parents used to say a prayer with me when I was little and so I said that period may died. And you know I'm not a go to church person at all because while the church is the last place for judgment. That's the first place you go when people judge the shit out of you regardless of what you come with that as well put this talk. You gave to him about it. Being okay to go was that just from the gut was I like instincts on your part were was that part of the handbook that they had given you that this would be something tells you that the ham tells you that but the only thing I really took from the handbook is that the person can still here you to the very last moment. So you have to be mindful of what you're saying in their presence and be just keep talking to them. You know giving them reassurance so in this this kind of duet between you and him and and as you're you're watching these final moments come. How quickly did you Mind HAVE TO SWITCH. To all of the strange particulars of this moment of of the fact that he had died in the middle of the pandemic. And now what were you going to do? Well during the As we're on the call we established that this is what happened has saw the nurse said to me. Okay now you have to prepare the body..

"My Dad's name was Charles Wesley Hall. He came here to the states and when he was. Oh Gosh may be fourteen years old and his Fa- my grandmother my grandparents they lows in Harlem so he pretty much grew up in Harlem. My grandfather was born in Cuba. Hop to Jamaica from Jamaica. They came to the states are seen. You've you've made pilgrimages down to Cuba. Yeah so in the middle of all of this. I returned on March the ten right when all of this started happening. And I had to self quarantine because I was on an international flight. So it's really just crazy. How all of this kind of came together. Because I was down there and I were there at the same time. Allie actually. You know what I came back on the twenty eighth of February. I'm Ray at the end where we left out on March. The seven and we can extend the trip but as you know why there's a little crazy trying to find a park with a little card and having to go to a. Texan the morning to get a new card and all cash. I left my passport at the. Yeah it was. That's a whole other experience if I never darkened the door of an Texoma office worldwide card again in my life. I'll be happy man but I still have my Wifi card in the back of my phone like I'm like I have to go look for the park though I will call home and check in with my mom and she be like. There's going to be a travel ban. Every time I called it was some next elevated news in. I'm just like we weren't hearing any of this when we were over there like I didn't. We've heard nothing about the virus when we got to the airport like I was wearing a mask and some people in customs wearing a mask and the airport. Workers were wearing masks and that was it like no took my temperature. No one was checking to see if I was sick but it was the same way coming back there like. Do you have anything in your suitcase? Did you bring anything back and I was like no. Meanwhile my luggage was like fifty pounds of Yeah Right. Don't worry about the rum and think about the virus. Yeah I I feel like. They are connected. If I didn't have this two bottles of Santiago on say did I brought back with me. This would be a much darker moment in my life and I brought office. I brought office from my office was already closed and the stashes here and it's slowly depleting. I'm just by DOT. I got next time when I go back. I'll bring more. I promise well as you know as a as a Santiago rooted person you will appreciate that this Santiago on say is taking the island by storm and I think he was telling Maria for mind. Who's a singer told me that you know? It's like a revelation to all of them because the weather is different out there. The sugar taste sweeter. The rum is richer. And they're all going crazy for this stuff. They're putting their their Havana club to the side and going with Santiago. Eleven and I'm on board. I'm on the train with her. All right so we're getting back. You come back to New York and all hell is about to break loose just to give you a little insight from the beginning. My Dad was diagnosed in early. Two thousand eighteen with stage for gastric cancer and we knew it was terminal. He went through Palette of Chemo. And you know sort of a palliative care regimen and when he outgrew that we knew that it was time for hospice so fast forward to January. Twenty twenty after we did a short stint in and out of hospitals. We decided that we would just. It was time to go to hospice route. So I come back. And that's when The hospice we started getting the hospice people work in order and just trying to develop schedule and so while I was home. Just trying to make sure that. I didn't bring the virus in 'cause I didn't WanNa bring it to my dad that next week like the schools had closed Or it was the week after that but as that's happening we noticed that there was a shift in even trying to get home health aides to come in so crazy you would. You would think that in home hospice would be somewhat immune from this but I guess right when when this really just kicked off everything shut well. My thing is what I realized is. There's no contingency plan when something like this does happen. Like across the board because hospitals are unprepared These type of agencies aren't prepared and people are afraid to do their job because they're not adequately covered so I mean I get it like I understand the reason for people not wanting to do it but it's just. What's the contingency plan here? Because there there wasn't one so gradually. This hospice service started shrinking. Down in front of your eyes up until it became that There were no more. They weren't coming into the home anymore. It was just virtual visits and he would have to quote unquote manage his own care in. I was thinking what's so now. I'm like okay okay okay. So now has a think Mike. So what am I supposed to do so while that's happening My Mom's aunt who actually is like my grandmother because my grandmother died when I was young. And it's my grandmother's sister. She was eighty nine years old and now now was the very active senior citizens shoes in the casino twice a week. Probably our senior center every day. You know hanging out with her friend like doing her thing independently. She didn't have any pictures in conditions. She lives out in Long Island now. She's shooting in rockaway. Which is the virus. She's living on her own rockaway and then my mom spoke to her. Maybe two weeks and to give or take two weeks into the self quarantine. She kept saying she was tired. She didn't feel well which isn't like her. Because you know she's pretty active and then just notice the steady decline in how she sounded on the phone so my mom's first instinct was like I'm going to go there and I had to tell her. No you can't go there because we don't know what's on so we were talking to her son trying to get some headway and he was just saying you know she's not responding. She's just fleeing here you know. She stopped breathing. Well I was just like Oh my God. It sounds like she might have it so now I called her daughter who lives in California and I told her she needs to come like ace so she got a flight she came next. Stay we go to the House. And she definitely was not well so now. I'm like I'm here again in this situation so I quickly backs out of the house and I just kind of talk to them like from the door so you were out in. Rockaway came came back. And then we're trying to kind of work the phones and get the doctor to get some kind of Hilton. Here that's another thing that kind of weighs on me because I'm like I should have stayed like you think of should've could've would've but it really wouldn't have changed the outcome at the end of the day. So you're like you can't put yourself through that ringer because it wouldn't have changed anything. We later found out that her senior center was largely infected and four of her friends also past positive from the virus to at home too. I think at home to wrap medical facilities one was at a Rehab Center. So that's five. Actually it was a few quite a few so all these things that made her. You know so remarkable in life like her active social schedule her independence or seeking out company of others that would that would end ended up costing life Catholic. Some it just feels like the the story of this city. You know it's like it is a very sociable city whether by choice or by force everybody's with each other and that is that has proven our undoing. You know. Yeah Yeah.

Morgan givens reading Langston Hughes description of New York's Harlem Neighborhood Hood in the Mid Nineteen Twenty S. It's been nearly a century since the Harlem Renaissance and while artists like Louis Armstrong Langston Hughes and Zora. Neale hurston still endure dozens. If not hundreds of works from that period have been lost or forgotten or in some cases never even published will now. Many many of those are coming to life for the very first time this week a never before published novel by Jamaican born poet Claude McKay was published ninety years. I think it was written and another novel by writer. Jesse Faucet was also republished this week for the first time in nearly a hundred years will why are these forgotten works resurfacing now and how did they change our understanding of this cultural movement. Joining me from Saint Louis. Public Radio is William Maxwell professor of English Russian African American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis Professor Maxwell great to have you good day. This is a presser maxwell and from the city in which Langston us was inspired to write the Negro speaks of rivers about one hundred years ago actually wonderful and so great to have you joining us from that place lace as we talk about the Harlem Renaissance in joining from NPR in that very city of New York. Is Morgan. Jenkins author of this will be my undoing living at the intersection of black female and feminist in White America senior editor of Zora magazine. Morgan welcome to you. Thank you so much. Hits Morgan Jerkins Jergen Party. Thank you I appreciate it. Thank you so much also joining from NPR. New York's autumn Womack Assistant Professor of Nineteenth and and Twentieth Century African American literature at Princeton University. Professor Womack welcome to you. Thanks for having me Morgan. Jerkins you wrote in the introduction. To Jesse cassettes novel. There is confusion which was republished. Just yesterday who was Jesse for set and why has she largely disappeared from a conversation about the Harlem Renaissance. Yes so Jesse Faucet I would say it was just a a multi hyphen it artists and she was a poet. She was an essay as she. He was literary editor of the Crisis Between Nineteen Thousand Nine Hundred Nineteen Twenty Six Under the stewardship of WBZ boys and She also was a mentor. I mean she cheap. She published Langston Hughes first home. The Negro speaks of rivers. She mentored county Colon Jean toomer Claude McKay and it's fascinating remaining also said in a sense that she was lost to a public imagination I would say For many different factors and I think one of it is because it was a woman a black woman and she often was overshadowed by her black no counterparts. Well Morgan in a piece that you wrote for for the New Yorker you talk about a dinner that took place in downtown New York nineteen twenty four now. This dinner largely considered to be the event that led to the beginning the spawning of the Harlem Renaissance take a minute. Take US inside that dinner. Tell me who was there who was around the table blend. Also what happened. That was pivotal for Jesse Facet. Oh man so that dinner was legendary in a sense that it was just a WHO's who oh black luminaries and also white people there as well but anyone you can think of that. You know they were at that dinner to celebrate black back office but the word was that that dinner was supposed to be in celebration of Jesse Faucets debut novel there is confusion and she was told by Charles. Johnson who at that time was leading opportunity magazine that it was going to be an honor of her will. The problem got what happened was because because Elaine lock who was also considered one of the midwives of the Harlem Renaissance By Langston Hughes words he was the master of ceremonies and he did not at like Jesse Faucet to this day. I don't not sure why because they were both very educated black people the kate himself in a certain way. Hey Jesse Faucet I just want that known. Yes yes we we different. She was really kind to him. Took them out to dinner which he desperately needed so yes yes he did not like her. It was a very sharp disdain. So because he was the master of ceremonies Monet's instead of centering Jesse Faucet he made it just a general celebration of black writers and it wasn't until years later that faucet actually wrote a scathing letter to lock about how the party was actually intended for her. So this sort of overlooked aspect I I would say. In retrospect was a harbinger of things to come. Even in the afterlife. This was her party and in a way he didn't even invite her. She was there Elsa no she I know she was there but she wasn't. Honored is what I mean to say. She wasn't invited into the circle. I mean she was excluded. Yeah yes well Professor Fester Maxwell you've already put in your vote for Claude McKay. And the way he treated Jesse FA- set shock. I know I have someone else. We could indeed my favorite. I want you to talk about Claude. McKay because you're the CO editor of romance in Marseille. That's a novel by Claude. McKay was published for the first time. Also yesterday they now McCain is maybe another lesser-known writer of the Harlem Renaissance. So who is he. And why was Claude McKay import. Well the first thing I'd like to say is that the reason other than the fact that Claude McKay wrote this book between Nineteen Twenty Nine and nineteen thirty. Three that we have today is because of my co editor Gary Holcomb who for this is not an exaggeration about twenty years. Press to get this into publication. But who was Claude McKay I think it's fair to say he is if not the most radical writer of the Harlem Renaissance Certainly one of them and you can measure that on traditional political spectrum. The one that we inherit from the a French National Assembly he's the furthest to the left of all the Harlem Writers He's a very important early black communist And he would be important in the history of twentieth century ideology political life if he never wrote a sonnet So he's quite radical politically also becomes one of the first black anti Stalinists so he breaks with the Soviet version of communism in advance of the generation of Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison who are more famous for that break who wrote major novels around it. he's radically international He's born in the Clarendon hills of Jamaica in eighteen eighty nine migrates greats to the United States pretty much. The first moment he can winds up at the Tuskegee institute hates what he sees. As the militarized culture. There moves to Harlem but significantly leaves Harlem Justice. The Harlem Renaissance is really taking off and this might be one reason for his relative marginality though. He's very much back back. In Vogue in the best ways so nineteen twenty-three comes around. He's just written the first significant book of Poetry from the Harlem Renaissance which is called Harlem shadows and he gets on a boat and he works as a stoker and he's trying to get himself to Europe and then eventually to Moscow for a meeting of the common tern. Why why why did he leave? Just when things in Harlem for an artist were really starting to harm was he over at all. Was it not for him or did he just have travel. And he's over for it all I. I think that he would have been invited to the famous nineteen twenty four dinner that we were just talking about but I think he probably would have felt pretty badly Afterwards on May not have attended in in the first place I mean he was a hard core Bohemian Wanted a renaissance that was based on both absolute truth telling and on the UNMEDIATED culture of black working class people themselves where he always located wisdom so he was always skeptical of the desire to use the Harlem Renaissance essentially a form of black middle-class uplift politics which is not to say that everyone else in the Harlem Renaissance was interested in that but some of the grandees some of the Great Entrepreneurs Land Lock W. E. B. Two boys James Weldon Johnson and others were certainly in that camp and he was a communist best so maybe also look a Harlem. Renaissance also meant a certain degree for some writers commercial success. I might guess he Disapproved of that Well he wanted more commercial success than than he found believe me but he does argue in public and private With two boys about both both ideological and aesthetic matters And you know. Deploys writes the most scathing review of Mackay's career in which he talks about the novel that was published in Nineteen Twenty eight home to Harlem probably McKay's most notable work at least in Contemporary Times And says after reading it's pages I I feel distinctly like taking a bath. McKay wrote him a very scathing personal after that. So there's a lot of back and forth. It's not just political that's important but they're also aesthetic matters that separate them artists Having their debates in there and their conflicts Especially back then we've talked about some of these lesser known writers Jesse FA- set Claude McKay. But here's a writer that Alice. Here's here writer Alice Walker by the way talking about a Harlem Renaissance figure that many people probably have heard of I think my junior year in school in high school. That was the year that Zora died and I had no idea she had ever lived. I had it never heard absorbable Hurston. I had no idea none that there were black women writers. There's Alice Walker talking about Zora Neale L.. Hurston a writer who Alice Walker helped revitalize in the nineteen seventies Professor Womack Zorno Hurston is an interesting figure gear because most people have heard of her now but she died largely in obscurity. Until as I said Alice Walker kind of revived her legacy in the seventies seventy. So why did she receive so little acclaim while she was alive. And then why did that change so. She actually received quite a bit acclaim while she was alive in the earlier. Part of the What we think of as the Harlem Renaissance so the late nineteen twenty s and the nineteen thirties? I mean she was quite a well. Well known and Prominent Person Artists Anthropologist Personality in the Harlem Renaissance There's a couple of different reasons. I think why she died in obscurity. I mean the one one of the reasons is that she ran out of money And so she. She claims that in many people did too that the onset of the Great Depression a lot of the patronage dried up that was driving and funding these black writers and the Harlem Renaissance She also wrote in a style that was not entirely conventional right so she was really dedicated to capturing during the vibrancy and the pulse and the dynamism of black southern culture performance voice sound so many writers in this time period. We're turning their attention to in New York into urban centers..

Sixty nine the twins were there to guide through Harlem in the nineteen sixties was decades removed from its creative renaissance earlier in the century. The black middle class was leaving for Brooklyn Queens in the Bronx and most of the white population left years earlier. Crime was on the rise in housing conditions had deteriorated dramatically in nineteen sixty eight alone. The city's Department of buildings received five hundred calls a day about rats and busted heaters and backed up toilets.

Meanwhile the underworld in Harlem would do just about anything to get Jimmy on this. Show bill even if it meant sending out. Mookie and his Detroit tournament brings artists into the fold. A Free Street Fair in Harlem seemed like the perfect compromise. The all day festival would benefit the United Block Association a Community Engagement Organization helping underprivileged youth. Jimmy and the Dan would not get paid for playing the idea was he giving back to the neighborhood and getting the goons off his back. In the process the event would feature an ECLECTIC roster Ester of acts that while not as world renowned as Jimmy represented a particular slice of the black musical landscape in nineteen sixty nine particular acts from fat.
