She has come face-to-face with the KKK, was put on death row in Mississippi’s notorious Parchman Penitentiary with fellow Freedom Riders, and helped plan and organize the March on Washington. Following in his mother's footsteps, Loki Mulholland creates films that make a difference in the world.

On July 2, 1964, exactly 50 years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the historic Civil Rights Act. The legislation outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender or national origin. It also ended discriminatory application of voter registration requirements as well as racial segregation in schools as well as in the workplace.
This landmark legislation was viewed as the culmination of the work of the civil rights movement. We are honored to have with us on this historic anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act, Mr. Jesse Epps, one of Dr. Martin Luther King's closest friends and advisors. Mr. Epps was with Dr. King on the day of his assassination.
It is the life mission of Jesse Epps to forward the work of Dr. King. He was a major part of the civil rights movement back then, and now, Jesse Epps is making history with the Rebirth of America http://americarebirth.org and Neighbors Uniting American Families. http://nuafonline.org He will share about that and how you can play a role.
We have come a long way with Civil Rights. The problem is that we still have a very long way to go!

Black Youth, Social Activism, and the Post-Civil Rights Generation is today’s topic. Political and social activism is not necessarily willed from one generation to the next. Indeed, the causes rallied around differ from one generation to the next. Sekou Franklin is here to help us understand what has happened to Black youth in the post-civil rights generation.
He is associate professor of political science at Middle Tennessee State University and author of the forthcoming book After the Rebellion: Black Youth, Social Movement Activism, and the Post-Civil Rights Generation
This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on some of the unfinished business of the civil rights movement by questioning the emotional and psychological legacy of this remarkable historical period and how it relates to current self-perceptions of the modern-day Black community. Did our strategic quest for political and legal equality neglect our need for psychological liberation? Did we push so hard to be equal with the majority group that we psychologically undermined our own unique value and beauty as a people?
Joining us to sort this out is former Tuskegee mayor Omar Neal, activist mother and lawyer Enola Aird, and psychologist Dr. Daryl Rowe. Together we will discuss this issue of emotional emancipation and its ongoing connection with our quest for civil rights.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.

The world was inspired by the African American fight for social justice, and the songs of that era continue to be sung around the world as a symbol of the formerly oppressed rising up to overthrow the yoke of oppression. Jazz singer Deloris Scott recounts the era of activism that was galvanized by musical performers who sang songs that spoke to the hearts of the people. As part of the musical group that traveled with Rev. Jesse Jackson, Ms. Scott recalls how the singers and band members were also part of the protest marchers and organizers who helped secure political and economic gains. During this challenging era of fighting racial injustice, Ms. Scott reveals how the musicians played a major role in maintaining the high spirit of hope among those who put their lives on the line for racial equality.
