The Young Lords: A Radical History; and Aerial Investigation Research Pilot Program And Persistent Tracking
Historically, the role of street protests is so intrinsic to reform in this nation enshrines protection for mass assemblies in the Bill of Rights. Yet one vibrant and impactful group of revolutionary activists in protest history has received virtually no attention, namely the Young Lords.
As the nation erupts in protests against racially-infused police violence, the Baltimore Police Department has just launched a six-month, day-time aerial surveillance experiment. A Texas billionaire has funded the project that is being operated by an Ohio-based company, Persistent Surveillance Systems. The plane flies overhead and records the movements of everyone in the city.Listen

Our show features an interesting piece produced by Bill Clause on the topic of police reform. Lack of accountability can lead to lack of trust, excessive use of force, discriminatory policies and practices, and inadequate training of police forces. These are just a few issues to get started on. We hope you will listen. During the second half of our hour, host Ed Pennington speaks with an inmate at Western Missouri Correctional Center, William Condit, #520884, who believes his conviction was based on inappropriate acts of the former Jackson County medical examiner, Michael Berkland, who was active at the time of Condit’s trial. Police arrested former medical examiner Michael Berkland in 2012 for allegedly keeping crudely preserved human remains in a rented storage unit in Florida. Justice depends on prosecutors who rely on local law enforcement for evidence in cases they bring.Listen

Every Woman • August 8, 2020 – Great Debate League – Phillips v Taylor – Black Women, Feminism, and Black Families
On today's episode of Every Woman, we're going to have a special treat for everyone. By kind permission of the Great Debate League we get to listen to a debate between Jainabah Lumumba Phillips and Catina Taylor about the role that Feminism has played in the weakening of the Black Family Structure. Several pundits have made the assumption that feminist ideals coupled with racist social policies exiled Black men from their families leaving behind a fractured community. However, Black Feminist scholars and activists have pushed back against this assertion noting that calls for gender equality were only a threat to those who wanted to uphold the patriarchy and continue the oppression of Black Women. Many of you will know Catina Taylor, not only for her being a guest on Every Woman, but also a board member of KKFI, and the current Board Secretary. In addition to that, she is also an educator and activist. Jainabah Lumumba Phillips is a revolutionary and activist and will be defending her premise that Black Women’s acceptance of feminism contributes to the destruction of the Black Family Structure.
That's at 3pm Central Time, on 90.1 FM, streaming on kkfi.org or various apps on your phones! And be sure to keep up with Every Woman at our Facebook page which you can find right here!Listen
