Driving Diversity in Economics With Fanta Traore
"I am originally from new york city one of the most diverse cities in the world arguably but also one of the most segregated and so growing up in that environment. That brought up a lot of questions for me related to opportunity and resource distribution. And in hindsight. I know that these are all questions. That are central to economics. And just to give you an example of the kind of questions. I was thinking about growing up. I was wondering about. When i cross crossover from manhattan into harlem why the neighborhoods was so different. Why the harlem side wasn't as clean as say the manhattan side for instance in the way. I rationalized this as a young person. Was that this had to do it. Politics and to some degree it does so. That's what led me to go into howard university setting political science and also having a focus on african politics because of my mauleon heritage as well but what was really a turning point for me in my economics. Career was when i did a summer program at princeton where a policymaker introduced the concept of economic research to work that she did to us and basically what she shared with that she use economic research to end a food desert in harlem. And when i learned about that i was completely mind blown and so excited to learn more. So i went back to howard and declared a second major and that was economics and emit a mad dash of taking nearly ten classes so that i could now have this economics major but it was one of the best decisions that i've made

Acquai- rely on pictures to get a sense of what a disease looks like so they can recognize it in the moment where freely scanning the patient from the minute we walk in the room and many of our diagnoses. We actually know them from the door. Because rote memorization of what things look like as such a big part of our training.

New York City Public School Seniors Say The Pandemic Is Shaking Up And Slowing Down The College Application Process
"Carlson. New York City public school seniors are now in their second semester, and that's historically a time to take a breath after completing college applications, But some students are still scrambling to submit essays and complete financial aid documents. W. My CI's Jessica Gould reports. That's only one of the ways the pandemic has shaken up the college process this year. Just a few days ago, Joshua Sr was sitting in front of his computer sending in his last college application to Howard University. I can't believe it a school y'all and This my final application. Wow. Yes, Josh goes to Brooklyn Tech, and he's a superstar. He's an a student with high test scores. He loves biology and Mandarin. He always planned to apply to college and the Corona virus didn't change that. But it did make it much harder. There were no campus visits or college fairs. He couldn't pop by his counselor's office to brainstorm. It's very much me in front of my computer like 12 A.m.. The night are in the early morning hours. This like China, think of things and there was no one to look over his shoulder while he filled out financial aid forms. I was so scared. I was gonna mess up Maybe one figure and You like label of fraud or something. But he says the biggest challenge has been juggling all his new responsibilities at home. Josh lives with his father and sisters in bed Stuy. His dad is a property manager who has been working around the clock since March. So Josh takes care of his 98 year old grandmother a week. My grandma every morning, I'll put her on the heart of party that's next to her bed also helps one of his sisters who has autism with remote learnings. I've had to kind of fill in as a teacher kind of helping her out with some of her homework, he says. For awhile, college applications just had to take a back seat to his other obligations. And experts say that's been a common theme this year. Angelique Figueroa is a counselor with a college bound initiative, a process that would have ended completely in December is now being pushed into January and February, she says. Part of the challenge has to do with applying remotely. She thinks the main reason is because students are under so much pressure, and some of their parents have lost their jobs. So now they have to work and they have to be able to provide And, um, I'm sorry I'm getting emotional, but I think that that is why it's taking them so long because they have to now. Not only be a senior Graduate from high school and be the first in their family. But now they have toe provide financially for their families. Like everything else with the pandemic. The impact on college applications depends on where you sit on the economic spectrum. With no s A T or a CT this year, applications over all appear to be up. But applications by students from low income families, students like Josh, who qualify for few waivers are down. Eric Waldo is with the common APP, which allows students to apply to hundreds of colleges at once, certainly a decrease in applications from first generation and low income students. And that's been probably the most troubling takeaway. He says. It's not surprising given how much families are struggling with finances and with loss. He says. Covert. 19 has also underscored how important it is to go to college. Having a college degree is actually was protected people and giving them the ability to stay home it all from the pandemic. It's been a life or death issue, so to be is that much more important that we you let this be a really a clarion call to all of us to do more to make sure students are applying to school and that they're actually showing up and going to college. That message isn't lost on Josh Sr. It's really just a question of where he'll be going next year. He's still waiting for responses, but he's already gotten a few, including this one from SUNY Binghamton accepted Yeah. First college acceptance ever he hopes many more of these are on the way. Thank you. Lord Jessica Gould w N.

I mean when you talk. Black excellence howard is produced a lot of it. I mean it's hcc see a historically black college and university so yesterday he came as no surprise when social media had a lack to say about the new editor in chief of howard magazine. Her name is rin. Rin you now. I'm not the highest grade of weeden dispensary. So let's play a game of jeff. What rights today come on real quick all right real quick when ren ren you dj envy guess what ratios said again brin you bring you yes. I would say asia. Angela yee rendering you. Guess what ratio Is definitely asian. Okay now you're both correct all right. She is asian vice president of communications and chief communications officer. Frank trample and office of university. Communications said in a statement. I'm excited to welcome into the how team. She is a skilled journalists with a proven track record. That was served university. Well this chapter of how history is one of the most critical to date two stories live. Today we'll be told for generations to come. And it is important that we continue to authentically document highly highlighting uplift our journey. Not once again. This is charlemagne god talking. And i do not want to make this about renew because she is absolutely qualified to be an editor in chief of a magazine journalist writer editor digital media specialist. She's got a diverse background in web print and broadcast journalism. She has extensive experience in magazine and website publishing as well as marketing and business development. She's worked at the washington. Washington washingtonian the national association of home builders. She co founded her own strategic communications consultancy firm. She is overqualified for a lot of positions for. This is not an indictment of her. My problem is with howard university. And i could have this all wrong okay. I've been wrong before open for discussion. I thought how would university was. Hbu with all these talks. Black people are having about diversity and holding these corporations accountable about having black people in executive positions focusing on black people in c. suites. Why would you pick anything other than a black person to be the editor in chief of their magazine a magazine. A magazine historically black college. You're talking about media you're talking about storytelling telling stories of black people. I would assume whether it's black issues happening on. Campus black issues happening outside of campus. The wording frank trample using his statement was it is important that we continue to authentically document. Our journey. Who is the are in your situation and can someone who is not black authentically document. What is happening at a black school so you can be overqualified for position. Okay but the one thing you need in any position like this morning. Anything his experience. I don't believe you can authentically document. Someone's experience if you don't live now. I could be wrong. But i don't think asians would bring a black person and put them in charge of documenting in telling their stories when something is was civic two arrays whether it's an hvac. You are latino magazine. If you're saying something specifically constructed for a particular race then why should anyone other than a black person be able to tell us stories. Dramas your puerto rican. Yes how would you feel if another race was made. Editor in chief of latino magazine now lived experience man. You can have the experience if you're not a race. I'm sure that has happened. I'm sure it has been a white people latino magazine. Sure yup case okay. We have to folks who went to hvac using here Taylor and envy or both hampton alumni. Not show of taylor graduated. That's why we call it. Diddy hampton alone. But she don't she did go. How would you feel taylor. Hampton made another race the editor in chief of the school magazine upset. Just because for me. I went to struggling black black-clad just to get away. No fence to white for my people and defeats the purpose the purpose envy. How would you feel him. Hampton university made another race now magazine. And i'm gonna tell you why depends okay at. Hp is not just all black students. It's not just all african-americans soda. Sometimes you get students from different areas many asians. Sometimes you'll see like i know what hampton there was some white kids on the road team like it's it's other things so if she's talking about the college experience and she graduated from how within i would understand it but not it makes no sense now. Nothing wrong with you know inclusion right when you're talking about putting people in charge correct you know what i mean. Yes they can attend the school but to be in charge of the whole magazine telling black stories. I feel like that should be a black person. Howard university to meet is just very tone-deaf We already fighting with these corporations and organizations put black folks in executive positions so it confuses the hell out of me when black people who have the power to put other black people in these positions. Don't how can we ask others to do what we aren't even doing ourselves. Please.
Jim's Recovery Story
"I was born in a little town in virginia in an average religious home. My father a negro was a country physician. I remember in my early youth. My mother dress me just as she did. My two sisters. And i wore curls. Until i was six years of age at that time i started school. And that's how i got rid of the curls. I found that. Even then i had fears and inhibitions we live just a few doors from the first baptist church and when they had funerals i remember very often asking my mother whether the person was good or bad and whether they were going to heaven or hell i was about six then. My mother had been recently converted and actually had become a religious fanatic. That was her main neurotic manifestation. She was very possessive with us. Children another thing. That mother drilled me was a very puritanical point of view as to sex relations and as to motherhood and womanhood. I'm sure my ideas as to what life should be like. We're quite different from that. Of the average person with whom i associated later on in life that took its toll. I realized that now about this time an incident took place in grade school that i have never forgotten because it made me realize that i was actually a physical coward during recess. We were playing basketball. And i had accidentally trip to fellow just little larger than i was. He took the basketball and smashed me in the face with it. That was enough provocation to fight. But i didn't fight and i realized after recess. Why didn't it was fear that hurt and disturbed me a great deal. Mother was of the old school and figure that anyone. I associated with should be of the proper type of course in my day. Times had changed. She just hadn't changed with them. I don't know whether it was right or wrong but at least i know that people weren't thinking the same. We weren't even permitted to play cards in our home. But father would give us just a little tidy with whiskey and sugar and warm water now and then. We had no whiskey in the house. Other than my father's private stock. I've never seen him drunk in my life although he'd take a shot in the morning and usually one in the evening and so did i but for the most part. He kept his whiskey in his office. The only time. I have ever seen my mother take anything. Alcoholic was around christmas time when she would drink some eggnog or light wine. I remember my first year in high school. That mother suggested that. I do not join the cadet unit. She got a medical certificate. So that i should not have to join it. I don't know whether she was a pacifist. Or whether she just thought that in the event of another war it would have some bearing on my joining up about then too. I realized that my point of view on the opposite sex wasn't entirely like that of most to the boys. I knew for that reason. I believe i married at a much younger age than i would have had not been for my home training. My wife and i have been married for some thirty years. Now was the first girl that i ever took out. I had quite a heartache about her then because she wasn't the type of girl that my mother wanted me to marry in the first place she had been married before. I was her second husband. My mother resented it so that the first christmas after our marriage which was in may of nineteen twenty-three. She didn't even invite us to dinner. After our first child came my parents both became allies. But in later days after i became an alcoholic they both turned against me. My father had come out of the south and had suffered a great deal down there. He wanted to give me the very best and he thought that nothing but being a doctor would suffice on the other hand. I believe that. I've always been medically inclined though i have never been able to see medicine quite as the average person sees it. I do surgery because that's something that you can see. It's more tangible. But i can remember and postgraduate days and during internship that very often i'd go to the patient's bed and start a process of elimination and then very often i'd wind up guessing. That wasn't the way it was with my father. I think with him. It possibly was a gift. Intuitive diagnosis father through the years had built up a very good mail order business. Because at that time there wasn't too much money in medicine. I don't think. I suffered too much as far as the racial situation was concerned because i was born into it and knew nothing other than that. A man wasn't actually mistreated. Though if he was he could only resent it. He could do nothing about it on the other hand. I got quite a different picture. Farther south economic conditions had a great deal to do with it. Because i've often heard my father say that his mother would take one of the old time flour sacks and cut a hole through the bottom and two corners of it and they're you'd have a gown of course when father finally came to virginia to work his way through school. He resented the southern cracker as he often called them so much that he didn't even go back to his mother's funeral. He said he never wanted to set foot in the deep south again and he didn't i went to elementary and high school in washington. Dc and then to howard university. My internship was in washington. I never had too much trouble in school. i was able to get my workout. All my troubles arose. When i was thrown socially among groups of people as far as school was concerned i made fair grades throughout. This was around. Nineteen thirty five and it was about this time that i actually started drinking during the years. Nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty five due to the depression and its aftermath. Business went from bad to worse. I had my own medical practice in washington at that time but the practice slackened and the mail order business started to fall off

But they're not many many rich rich people that care about the average person is not a lot that also but there's not a lot and i'm just being honest with you just telling you how they think is amazing because most people who are in her position inhabited their money from an inheritance of family and most of these families. A lotta families that are wealthy. Come from generational wealth and generational wealth was crete aided during the slavery slave era.

You have no salaries you don't you you ain't got to worry about my call near seek a no traffic. What and a lot a lot of them. not all. But a lot of generational wealth in this country was built on the backs of slavery. So that's why when a lot of these people. I e donald trump get into position. They're in they have no undestanding compassion for everyday people. Why because they've never been one. That's why this man can constantly make this statement. I'm the lease racist person. You know you're not it's just that you operate. In an in. A circle of people line of thinking is par for the course is acceptable. You are racist.

"Had insider information advanced knowledge of what wikileaks whole held. Now Day said that they couldn't prove that Roger Stone's actually did have that knowledge, but the trump campaign believed it to be so and that they were pressing Roger Stone to tell them what stolen documents wikileaks going to be released so that they could use them to their benefit on the campaign trail. Specifically, they actually appear to call out Donald Trump for lying to the MOWER team. In written answers that the president's team gave to federal prosecutors, he said that he did not have any recollection of talking to Roger Stone about wikileaks the Senate team found did they talked about it? He says, they didn't but they did. And will this Senate? Intelligence Committee report CHANGE ANYTHING GOING FORWARD? Is there any potential for additional criminal charges against any of the people that they say were? Is this just additional information about something that we have already basically hashed out? I. Think this is an important document for history. I mean, it's really really detailed. It's a thousand pages long it goes into all kinds of subjects, some of which have not really been studied before that I think when people want to understand better will happen in this era. This report will be examined and looked at I. Don't think it's GONNA lead to more criminal charges. The Justice Department has made clear attorney general. Bill. Bar has said that he believes that the original counterintelligence investigation was opened on a very thin thin read that he did not believe in it. So I don't think we're GONNA ever. See it criminal charges over what happened with Russia in twenty sixteen. I will say I think that most people have decided what they think on this topic and you know thousand pages or twenty thousand pages this document is unlikely to sway a lot of people's minds. and. What do you think that says about where we are going into this next election because I think it's really striking. The fact that here we are four years after the events that are outlined in this document and not only is there still debate over some of these newer details of of what actually happened in two thousand sixteen but you still have the president and a big part of the country that fundamentally does not believe that Russians actually tried to influence the election for years ago. So what does that say about how prepared we are going into this November? Yeah we had the intelligence community come out just within recent weeks to say that foreign intelligence services are continuing to try to affect our political system including Russia that Russia has not given up. They are still trying to support Donald Trump and that is a conclusion that the Republican party a writ large, and certainly the person of Donald Trump appears to not accept. and. That's pretty that's pretty difficult to know how this is going to play out in the final months of what's likely to be really dirty dirty campaign You know we have seen for instance, the president just re tweeted with in recent days some audio clips that were put out by Ukrainian lawmaker. Our intelligence community has said that those audio clips came out as. Part of a Russian disinformation campaign and the president is embracing it and re tweeting at this very moment. So in some sense, you know we're seeing history repeat itself and you know it's sort of the classic cliche those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it while this is the report that is that history and I'm not sure people.

"So, why are they studying Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election when we already had the Mola report which addressed that exact same thing. So, they started this process before Bob Muller was even appointed way back in the early part of twenty seventeen when it became apparent that the Russians had done something in the election. So there are two ways in which this report is really different from the mall report which came out in twenty nineteen. The first is that it is bipartisan it's I was conducted both by Democrats and Republicans working. On the Senate Intelligence Committee, and theoretically any of the takeaways that are included in there those are signed off by Democrats and Republicans. That's right. We did see yesterday. Oh sides kind of put out statements that offered their interpretations of what you should draw from the report and those differed quite strongly what they wanted people to think were the most important takeaways but the actual one thousand paid for poor which is very fact base river accounts. You know details that they found in the course of their investigation theoretically those. have been signed off by both sides. So that's one thing that makes this really different from the more report. The other is that the more team had a very narrow mandate they were looking for crimes did people break the law so they could be indicted and potentially sent to prison. This report takes a much broader Wook what they described as a counterintelligence look what did Russia de when what were the vulnerabilities that recreated on the American side to make our political system potentially more open or vulnerable to Russian attack. So. If what came out on Tuesday is the fifth installment in this investigation that the Senate Intelligence Committee has been doing what we're the big takeaways or things that are different from what we already knew about how Russians tried to influence the election. So the big takeaway here was that first of all the Russian effort, it just reconfirmed what has been said by multiple groups over and over again, which was that it was aggressive it was real. It was ordered up by Vladimir Putin. The Russians really did try to affect our political system including hacking documents and releasing them publicly by having social media puts and. By. Trying to infiltrate the trump campaign, the other thing that this report really hit was that the trump campaign made itself vulnerable. They did not find that they sort of actively conspired with the Russian government and not something that the Republicans want you to think is the biggest takeaway here there was not an active conspiracy between the Russian government and the trump campaign but over and over again, this report emphasizes the vulnerabilities that were created by various members of the trump team being opened a Russian help being eager to maximize it to their benefit and who were those individuals who are talked about in this report. So there's a couple of people that they focus on the big one as Paul, Metaphor who is the chairman of the trump campaign? He is this guy who had had active business and political history working with Russians and pro Russian Ukrainians for years before he began to work for free for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen and they describe how he had a ongoing communications including communications he was trying to hide would this Russian employees of his who worked in Keith worked in Ukraine his name was Constantine column, Nick, and the Senate Intelligence Committee says Contin. Colonic Nick is a Russian intelligence officer that's a bit new. The more report than the more folks had claimed that clinic had ties to Russian intelligence. The Senate has gone further. They say he was a Russian intelligence officer and that for gave him access to inside trump campaign information, internal polling campaign strategy what they considered battlegrounds that Paul Manafort was leaking these insider details to a Russian intelligence officer. They also say that they've uncovered some information that this guy. Constantine. Kalinic may have had personal role in the Russian hacking operations. This is a pretty big deal They called this a grave counterintelligence threat to the United States. The chairman of the trump campaign posed a grave counterintelligence threat to the United States, and this was the cigar bar thing right like that Paul Manafort had met with Constantine, Clem? Nick. At the Cigar Bar in New York, and this was the focus of a lot of the investigations around whether that was a point of coordination between the trump campaign and Russia yeah exactly. one of the things that we had learned to the MOWER is that Paul Metaphor and constant clinic actually had this sort. Of. Secret meeting in your clinic had flown from Russia to New York, for this meeting it took place at a cigar bar. In Manhattan, an at that meeting Paul Manafort gave him nick internal polling data from the trump campaign, and one of the things that the Senate report emphasizes is that wasn't the only time they say that he provided clinic in information insider information about the campaign on quote numerous occasions, and who are some of the other people that this report focuses on in terms of people within the trump campaign who were points of vulnerability. So. Basically, they look at all the names that if you've been following this story over the last few years, you would be familiar with they will get George Popadopoulos this foreign policy adviser who was told by a Maltese academic in the spring of Twenty sixteen that the Russians had Hillary Clinton's emails, and they conclude that he was this over eager guy wanted to impress the campaign they say that they do not believe that he was a willing conspirator with the Russians but that the Way He was acting in sort of his openness to working with folks and trying to set up a meeting between the trump campaign and Russia ends presented a point of vulnerability. He was a potential vector for foreign intelligence services. In the same way, they will get Carter page another foreign policy adviser who visits Moscow during the campaign gives a speech over there. Again, they don't necessarily conclude that Mr page conspired with the Russian government, but they say there's a lot they couldn't figure out about. What page was up to during this time and part of what's interesting about both of those characters is you know dare is a world of people who are trump supporters who have adopted a counter narrative about some of these guys to support the idea. This was all witch hunt and all a hoax that maybe they were set up by Western intelligence agents with the goal of getting the trump campaign and this report really rejects those conspiracy theories out of hand guess they May. Not have conspired directly with the Russian government but the report presents their activities as plenty concerning, and the kind of thing at the FBI might WanNa take a look at. I'm also curious about if this report talked about Roger Stone, especially considering the fact that his sentence which just commuted and so he'd never even went to prison for what he was convicted of. Yeah. Exactly. I mean president trump basically said that roger stone was unfairly treated. That's why he commuted his sentence but this report. Again accepted by both Democrats and Republicans basically endorsed everything that the molar team found about Roger Stone and essentially endorsed the facts which brought about his conviction. They say that the trump campaign was very interested in figuring out what wikileaks had, what's stolen documents. wikileaks had access to that they were interested in that and seeking information about that even after people started saying would some. Credibility that those documents have been stolen by Russian intelligence that they maximize that information for their benefit. And that the trump campaign came to believe that Roger Stellan.

On June fourth nineteen sixty five president Lyndon. Johnson delivered the commencement address at Howard University the nation's most prominent, historically black university. In his address Johnson explained why opportunity was not enough to ensure the civil rights of disadvantaged Americans the to fill these rights speech as it was widely known, was the intellectual framework for affirmative action. President Johnson spoke of racial injustice and the economic disparities between black and white Americans. For many in the audience that day was one of the first times they felt a president. Any president really acknowledged the treatment of black citizens from slavery to Jim Crow. As one graduate Lillian Beard recalled on the fiftieth anniversary quote I believe that afternoon in nineteen, sixty five changed a lot of minds. Because we felt that, he spoke directly to us. LBJ's Howard University address came only a few months after he'd gone before a joint session of Congress to speak in support of the Selma to Montgomery voting, rights, March. It was in that message to Congress. That LBJ famously identified himself with the Civil Rights movement when he declared, we shall overcome. The Howard speech, which was principally written by presidential speechwriter. Richard Goodwin and then Assistant Secretary of Labor Daniel Patrick. Moynihan was an extension of Johnson's march. Voting Rights speech to Congress. The goal was to take the civil rights movement from one focused on legal justice to one focused on economic justice. In Howard speech, Johnson pointed out that the racial barriers to freedom were slowly tumbling down, but instead of resting on that progress, and what his administration had done to that point Johnson. When a step further quote, freedom is not enough. The president told the graduates. It was important for American society to achieve quote equality as a fact inequality as a result. The next day President Johnson received a telegram from the Reverend. Dr Martin. Luther King Junior. Telling him quote never before has a president articulated the depths and the dimensions of the problems of racial injustice, more eloquently and more profoundly. Dr, King was not exaggerating the importance of the Howard speech in August. Johnson would sign the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five into law and two years later. He would appoint Thurgood Marshall to the United States. Supreme Court making him the nation's first black justice. But unfortunately the racial transformation Johnson had promised at hoped to bring about when he spoke at Howard did not take place. Fifty five years later. The same underlying conditions exist and the. Disparities LBJ described have not gotten better far from it. They've gotten exponentially worse. If we are to fulfil the promise of social and economic justice made by LBJ to. BLACK-AMERICANS A half-century ago. All of us must commit ourselves to radical and immediate change. Anything less would be a monumental failure. With that. Let's listen to President Lyndon Johnson's one thousand nine hundred sixty five commencement address at Howard University. Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States. Doctor Neighbor. My fellow Americans. I'm delighted at the chance to speak at this important. And this historic institution. Howard has long been an outstanding center. For the education. Of Negro Americans. Its students. are of every race and color. And they come from many countries. Of the, world! It is truly. A working example. Of Democratic Excellence. Our? Earth Is the home of revolution. In every corner..

"Course, your your mom. Barbara Bowman one of the foremost experts on childhood development and education in the country. But I wanna talk about your dad for second. And what he confronted as a he was educated Howard University educated in their medical school came here. I I guess the provident hospital which was a a a a black institution, but he moved to Saint Luke's hospital, which was not what what did he confront there? Well, he was excited to be admitted for his residency at Saint Luke's. He was the first African American to be admitted, but they had rules in one of the rules that he couldn't live in the dorm on campus. Now, everyone knows anything about being a resident, you know, you're on call all the time you work these ridiculous hours, and he used to have to take a streetcar to Brownsville and live in the black community while his white. Counterparts were able to just fall out of bed and be right there. They also told him that he couldn't come in the front door. And my dad said that's a bridge. Too far, I competed. I was accepted. I am going to come in the front door. And so he walked in the front door the first day and the world did not come to an end and the rest of the employees the next day all of the rest of the black employees from the orderlies to the nurses to whoever staff that worked. There were waiting for him as the story goes and walked in the front door together. And Chicago was like that back then had kind of a spotty history. And and it was on the verge of making change. But there were these legacy vestiges of Jim crow that my father. More polite about these things I don't like it wasn't even a spotty history. It was a it was a history of segregation. Dr king came here in the sixties, and and confronted that and your family confronted as well and actually left the country to get away from it. You are not I'm not a birther. This is a fact you can read about it in the book, you are born in this country. Unlike you. Who aren't in Iran? I was born in Iran in Iran. So my dad when he finishes residency went to the army and lived in Denver couple for a couple years by then he'd met my mother fall in love got married, and so often Denver they went and when he was leaving the army he was looking for a job at an academic, teaching institution likely universes Chicago, and he couldn't find a position anyone comparable to his white counterparts. And so he and my mother who were pretty adventuresome spirits thought. Well, let's look outside of the United States. If there's not an opportunity here for you. Let's see what else what else there might be. And they heard about a position that was available to help start a new hospital in Sharon Iran, and they asked my.

"So get started in March of this year. Hundreds of students at Howard University took over building a they released a list of nine demands and occupy occupy the building for nine days until seven of their demands were met I spoke to Alexis mckinney. One of the organizers of h resist the student movement responsible for the occupation of building a Alexis is my niece. I'm here with Alexis Alexis mckinney. Who has just finished up her senior year? At Howard University. The thing is though Alexis Texas probably caused more trouble at Howard University than the administration ever thought she would. They're probably happy to see you. Go what do you you think. They'll probably definitely happy to see me. Go administrators at Howard and they know your name. I don't know it's a good thing when the administration the knows your name it can be a good thing in a bad name. I'll probably have a couple of files. Two thousand everybody there right so yeah yeah so I understand that you were. One of the lead organizers for h you resist the whole group that took over the administration building holding this past year at Howard University so my I mean my first sort of question what you know it was sort of interesting to like. Oh she's on buzzfeed speed away she's on. NPR AWAIT CNN. Okay like how I mean. How do you get to the point where you decide? Hey I think it's a a good a good idea to take over the administration Building at Howard University. So tell me like how did how did that idea ever even start so h is we actually started back in February of last year when we A few students we noticed the university aligning itself with the trump administration And so that's when we said I listened to man's and this year we had a second list which was backed up by a survey that we did with eight percent of the undergraduate population over five hundred people. And I think we always knew as we were organizing that we've been ended up taking the building because Direct Action Shen and protest is really the only way that our administration listens or even pays attention to the students in a serious way. I'm and it was also continuing a tradition that had already existed incident Howard so the first Occupation of the building happened in nineteen sixty eight fifty years ago and then the second one was in one thousand nine hundred nine and so there was a legacy of students taking physically physically taking back our power our economy over our university and so we definitely wanted to continue in that tradition and it was the most plausible way to get demands. Met which we did get seven of the nine minutes okay so you talked about it from an ideological standpoint but from a process standpoint Dan boy I mean like really like what do you do. Okay so what are you saying. Hey let's all meet at the bottom of the hill at nine. AM So how did that part happen. Right right so The tactical part of it was actually one of the hardest parts of just getting in the building because the we had released our our our demands a week before we actually took the building so the university knew that we were going to do something And so what we did from a logistical standpoint. Was We had a rally out on the. The Yard is kind of like a distraction to kind of. Wait wait wait did you say wait. Did you say you had a rally on the yard as a distraction. Yes yes and also to help us get more students mobilized to get in once we got the building so we had the rally out on the yard and so throughout the day starting at like ten. Am We had students students trickling into the building to already be there and be able to let more students in and so by the time it was. I think three o'clock three or four o'clock we had about fifty students inside the building waiting for us to act. And so we've made the call. We just rest the building. Everyone that we have from the rally came from the yard the Abilene we rushed the building I think in that point. We don't know we had a good amount of people. The whole bottom floor was pretty full. We originally the building And then a few of US went out on the RN. Said Hey we're able to come. We got food coming over because we did have. We order pizza that night. We have pizzas donated and just guy people. That's how we got people in. So so how did the administration lead So I think there was a lot of campus police still in the building for the first few days. Actually actually we were finally able to get them out but we administrators leave And I think the building may have already been kind of closed because it was like a Thursday so people leave early a lot so around thirty so by the time. We'd actually taking a lot of initiatives. Were already out so once. They walked out the door. You what closed and locked the door behind him. How did that work? We didn't lock the door for the first few days We had we had students at the door And only campus police really maintenance people were allowed and we had students like guarding the door but then after we got him as police out. We didn't let anyone who didn't have to ninety inside the building. We had students stationed at every entrance of the building every hour. Oy for security so you took over the first floor. How many floors are in the building? Four force so how did you move up to the next floors lors After the first night I think your the first or second night we just know people spread out and just you know kind of go up in. We control the building so we had full access to the building and so we actually had the first floor with kind of general. We had a lot of activities in the basement floor. We had some activities so it I five floors. Actually 'cause there's a basement And we had a lot of activities and there was also a sleeping area there too and that became actually like the queer. LGBT NON gender conforming folks space to sleep so they can feel safe and then the second floor was the fim only florus only theme identifying people could sleep and be on that floor and the third was kind of anybody and that was the quiet floor and the fourth floor. We really didn't let anyone go up there because that was the president's office and a lot of files there's for legal reasons like we don't want a lot of people going up there just in case anything came missing or whatever so okay sounds like a really good plan. I understand that the attorney who had worked on the previous takeover go over served as an adviser for you this time. How did that work? Yes so Donald Temple who is an amazing lawyer who has a law firm in DC. He we met him actually actually last year when we first started organizing And he had given us some legal advice. I run into him on campus because he's also a Howard alone And we knew he had the history of representing ending the students in one thousand nine hundred nine as well as you do see students when they took over the president's office in Nineteen Ninety And so we called him and he came and he was there every single day. Hey helping US supporting us. Spending a lot of hours just to be in I give us legal support. He lives in every day of negotiations. I remember one night. We Finish Negotiations Association's about twelve. Am with the board of trustees. And then I was working on some legal language like one. AM and I. I remember recalling him and saying hey can you look at this real quick for me. Sorry I remember telling him you know you look at this language for me real quick it was like one. AM and he's a yeah. I'll do this and get back to you for him so I took a net. I woke up. We got we linked up at like four thirty more emailing back and forth and then I started my day like seven and so that was just part of his commitments are caused which is really beautiful and I still talk to him. He's become a mentor for us. So it's been really good. Were there other people like that. Who helped out provided counseling and advice? Yes we are only lawyer but we had an outpouring of support from the community so we had black lives matter and B. y. p. one hundred The both these chapters they came they brought legal observers. who were there? The whole nine days twenty four seven we had a medic room setup that was free charged with medical trained. Medical People Were there twenty four seven seven. Who actually stayed in the building with us We had so many donations. I'm a food we we have a weekly food pantry on the Sunday that we were in there we were actually able to do our food. Who pantry and feed over five hundred homeless people just from leftovers perishable leftovers and people were making sandwiches in the kitchen and people uber's out into the Northeast and southeast DC not and gave out our food that we had because we had so much so that was really beautiful? Just the support that we got from the community. So how did you guys wrap everything up there in the end and so we had our press conference well before the press conference We went out to the students who are out there and kind of presented the agreement that we come to when voted on it to make sure you know we were all good with what was happening. Wanted to maintain the democratic space that we created And then we had. We signed the agreement with the president resident on the fourth floor and then we had a press conference and then we had to basically clean up because we had nine days with the community. You know we didn't leave so there the sleeping bags food all this. We spent that time cleaning up as a community and then We had our little chance of stuff when we we've finished at like ten o'clock at night and we had so much stuff leftover but we did a little champ. We took a picture in front of student flower flag. That was At the front of the building We live right it cool. So do you feel like it was success. Definitely definitely I think even besides the fact that we got seven of our nine demands met It was the only one that you didn't get met. Where like the trustees and the president resigning yeah exactly? I think beside had that it was a it was a demonstration of power and a very physical tangible way and I think there are people whose lives were changed by being a part of that people who never thought about protesting or organizing or being involved in any kind of thing like that now. Their life direction may change and the community that we built while we were in the building building. I mean we had open MIC nights. We had a study sessions tutoring Healing circles we have art gallery on the basement floor. That just popped up because students WanNa really do that and so just that creativity in that community that we fostered. I think one of the biggest successes of our movement. Wow so I've even read that. Some people people think that what you did conserve as a model for what students might be able to do at other universities. Yeah right during during and right after our occupation to other schools started their own takeovers and sit in their own university so we did Spark some political action which is really exciting winning and really encouraging for me as a student organizer And I definitely want to help. Spread that knowledge and that experience that we've gained through our year of experience Onto other students who can do similar things and get things accomplished at the school it's really necessary especially Hvac us because we need it all right cool anything else. You WANNA AB I think Just that you know while we were successful. It's really important for us to always know that the work is not is not Over much work to be done at Howard and beyond And that there is power and being a student and and collective work and organizing. I think our movement demonstrated that and then it's possible anywhere uh-huh..
