The Lorraine Motel
Play • 29 min

Now a National Civil Rights Monument, and best-known as the site where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee hosted not only civil rights leaders, but a range of famous musicians and black celebrities during its heyday. In our final episode, we learn about the motel’s owners, Walter and Loree Bailey, the efforts to preserve it as a national monument, and its complicated legacy as a symbol of both Black excellence and immense sadness.

For The Love of The Mauna, Part 2
This is part two in our series For the Love of the Mauna which shares the story of Native Hawaiians’ effort to protect Mauna Kea. The first episode gave us the background and story of the beginning of the TMT fight and the cultural foundations of Mauna Kea. This segment focuses on the resistance camp at Pu’u huluhulu which was established during the summer of 2019 on the Mauna. This ended up garnering attention because it was the largest mobilization of law enforcement in the history of Hawaii to fight those trying to stop the massive destructive construction project in the middle of conservation land. We highlight the kupuna line, the complex relationship with the police, the role of the University of Hawaii, and Native peoples’ relationship with science. “The 30 meter telescope thought that they were going to erect a telescope, but really, they awoke a nation.” - Mehana Kihoi Central in the series are kapuna and scholar Dr. Auntie Noe Noe Wong-Wilson, scholar, poet, and activist; Jamaica Osorio, activist, educator, and cultural practitioner; and Lanakila Mangauil who discuss the health of the natural environment and its connection to fundamental rights as Indigenous peoples.  +++ *All My Relations is Listener Supported *Become a Patron *Follow* Dr. Noe Noe Wong Wilson, Executive Director of The LĀLĀKEA FOUNDATION Jamaica Osorio on Instagram Lanakila Mangauil on Instagram All My Relations on Instagram *Support* https://www.puuhuluhulu.com/ https://www.protectmaunakea.net/donate Episode artwork drawn by  Ciara Sana.  Videography by Upthink Labs Music by Masa Kobayashi Fiscal Sponsorship by Speak Out!

The Most Perfect Album: Episode 9
This season, More Perfect is taking its camera lens off the Supreme Court and zooming in on the words of the people: the 27 amendments that We The People have made to our Constitution. We're taking on these 27 amendments both in song and in story. This episode is best listened to alongside 27: The Most Perfect Album, an entire album (an ALBUM!) and digital experience of original music and art inspired by the 27 Amendments. Think of these episodes as the audio liner notes. In More Perfect's final episode of the season, listen to liner notes for two amendments that contemplate the still-unfinished status of our Constitution. "27" is an album that marks a particular point in our history: this moment when we have 27 Amendments to our Constitution. What will be the 28th? Maybe it will address our nation's capital. The capital has been a bit of a Constitutional anomaly for much of our nation's history — it's at the heart of the democracy, but because it's not a state, people in Washington D.C. have been disenfranchised almost by accident. The 23rd Amendment solved some of the problem — it gave D.C. the right to vote for president. But it left much of D.C.'s representation questions unanswered. D.C. still does not have voting representation in Congress. Instead, D.C. sends a "non-voting delegate" to Congress. For this liner note, More Perfect profiles that delegate, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and her unique approach to fighting for power in a virtually powerless role. The song for the 23rd Amendment is by The Mellow Tones, a group of students from D.C. high school Duke Ellington School of the Arts, along with their teacher Mark G. Meadows. The chorus, "Why won't you count on me?" reflects on the continued disenfranchisement of our nation's capital. The final amendment of the album, the 27th Amendment, put limits on Senators' ability to give themselves a pay raise, and it has arguably the most unusual path to ratification of all 27. The first draft for the amendment was written by none other than James Madison in 1789, but back then, it didn't get enough votes from the states for ratification. It wasn't until a college student named Gregory Watson awakened the dormant amendment centuries later that it was finally ratified. The 27th Amendment song is by Kevin Devine and tells Watson's story.
