Jaws of Justice Radio investigates how we can achieve justice from a system of laws deeply rooted in economic, social and political inequality.  We hope you will listen.

For our show on February 19th, host Macy Jones will be speaking with his guest, Lewis Diuguid about Black History.  You know the old saw, if we do not know our history, we are doomed to repeat it.  Let me add to that, if we do not know our history, our present is shaped by ignorance.

Lewis Diuguid is the former columnist, editorial board member, op-ed page editor, and letters editor at The Kansas City Star, and he is also a published author. He has written “A Teacher’s Cry: Expose the Truth about Education Today”, and “Discovering the Real America: Toward a More Perfect Union”, which examines the often-overlooked history of white privilege, racism and discrimination in the United States.

As ever, Lewis Diuguid has a great deal to tell us and we are so lucky to have him as our guest.  Lewis is a remarkable fit on KKFI, a person not afraid to speak truth on KKFI, the community radio station that is not afraid to broadcast truth!


During the other half of our program, host Keith Brown El is going to provide his commentary about the gun violence at the February 14th parade.  Many citizens were wounded and one was killed, KKFI’s own DJ, Lisa Lopez Galvan.  This really brings the prevalence of gun violence home to us.  Anyone of us was at the parade, all of us in the studio are DJs on KKFI and so everyone of us wonders, will I be shot?  Do I send my child to school every day?


On Jaws of Justice, we examine how to find justice in our society.  Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
