The Power of the Black Voter with Nse Ufot
Welcome to Season 2 of Black History Year. In everything we do at PushBlack, we’re always asking, “How do we work together to make things better for Black people?” In this season of the Black History Year podcast, we’re stepping to that challenge in an even bigger way. We have episodes that’ll open eyes to new ideas about reparations, criminal justice reform, and the ways Black cooperative economics can help us strengthen our communities and build wealth. And we’re gonna reconnect to the beautiful parts of our culture found in our food and spiritual practices. 12 episodes. Twice as much Black History as our first season! So make sure you tell your people that we’re back and let’s get to it. In our season kick-off, we're sitting down with the amazing Nse Ufot, the executive director of the New Georgia Project, where she’s working to get eligible voters registered and participating in our democracy. We know there is A LOT going on around voting rights. Nse is _exactly_ the right person to get us focused on what’s important. It was a great conversation and we're really happy to have her with us to kick off season two. This podcast is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company. PushBlack exists because we saw we had to take this into our own hands. _You_ make PushBlack happen with your contributions at Black History Year dot com.

BPR Full Show 10/19/20: Holding out for Hugs
Today on Boston Public Radio: Media maven Sue O’Connell and GBH’s Adam Reilly weighed in on the national political headlines of the day, including ongoing negotiations in Washington over additional COVID stimulus funding. They also touched on a few statewide stories, from Gov. Baker’s formal announcement that he won’t be voting for Trump, to Saturday’s end of the Mass. eviction moratorium. We opened lines to talk with listeners about recent reporting in the Boston Globe on the dozens of Mass. State Troopers who've engaged in criminal behavior without facing repercussions on the force. GBH News analyst and GroundTruth Project CEO Charlie Sennott broke down the latest international headlines, discussing the steady reemergence of COVID-19 across Europe, the reelection of New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and political unrest in Chile. Boston Globe business columnist Shirley Leung talked about a pilot program offering no-strings-attached checks for low-income families in Chelsea, and recent reporting in the Boston Globe on economic revival in Brockton. She also gave us a glimpse into how her two kids are handling remote learning, a month into the school year. Reverends Irene Monroe and Emmett G. Price III, hosts of GBH’s All Rev’d Up, weighed in on the spiritual leanings of Democrats and Republicans, and discussed what we understand about Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s attitudes towards racism in the criminal justice system. Closing out the show, we opened lines to ask: seven months into the coronavirus pandemic, how much are you missing hugs and physical contact?
