The Path to Founding an HBCU
Play episode · 14 min
Born into slavery, William Hooper Councill founded one of the nation's first HBCUs, Alabama A&M University. Negotiating the racial politics of Reconstruction and the dawn of Jim Crow was dangerous work. Councill was a peer of Booker T. Washington's and is remembered for his accommodating stance toward whites. His complicated story helps us understand the times he lived in and the legacy of HBCUs.

Prayer Edition | Day 18 | Bob Marley
Many of us know the story of Bob Marley.  He was born in St. Ann, Jamaica to a Syrian Jewish man and an African woman.  He struggled to find his place in the world.  Through that struggle, he found a voice that would help liberate millions around the world.  Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Max Romeo, and scores of other musicians would serve as spiritual vessels for a powerful message of liberation and love for African people across the diaspora.  We also know that Bob Marley was shot by his own people (classic hero's journey - see Jesus, Malcolm X, Nipsey Hussle) but he miraculously did not die. He went on to perform the most powerful, politically unifying, spiritually-pure concert the planet has ever seen. We lost our hero too young.  His cause of transition was the sun - you don't get more poetic. But what did he believe?  That's what we will explore today. On today's call, we will crank up classic anthems and dive into the Rastafari Movement of the 1930s. This was Christian synchronicity in a cloak of African reverence with a powerful agenda for social reform.  Don't miss this conversation and pavement party.  Rastafari positions the Bible as liberation theology, and I'm here for it.

29. Black Men For Trump?: The Overdue Conversation on Patriarchy & Misogynoir in Black Politics
In this “barbershop edition” of Intersectionality Matters, which was recorded live on October 28th, Kimberlé is joined by a panel of activists, scholars, and writers to discuss, patriarchy, misogynoir, and why a small but meaningful minority of Black men, including prominent celebrities like 50 Cent and Ice Cube, are choosing to support President Trump this election. Led by AAPF Co-Founder Luke Charles Harris, this roundtable conversation explores what genuine self-love looks like for Black men, the relationship between racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia in the Black community, and how we can imagine different, more empowering futures for ourselves and our communities. With:
 WADE DAVIS - Former player and first LGBT inclusion consultant at the NFL LUKE CHARLES HARRIS - Co-founder, African American Policy Forum; Associate Professor, Vassar College KIESE LAYMON - Author of Heavy and Long Division; Professor, the University of Mississippi
