    Wanda's Picks Radio Show: Can Art Save a Community?

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!


    Guests:
    1. Michael Warr & Mark Sabb speak about Black + Brown Lives Matter at the Red Poppy Art House Collective, 2698 Folsom @ 23rd Street, in San Francisco, a yearlong project which continues Thursday, April 30, 7 p.m. Can Art Save a Community? We also speak about another project, Tracing Poetic Memory.

    2. Rob Melrose (director, co-founder, Cuttingball), Giovanni Adams (Frederick Douglass) and Andrew Saito (playwright) join us to talk about Cuttingball Theatre Resident playwright, Mr. Saito's work, Mount Misery opening May 8 through June 7 in San Francisco. Frederick Douglass meets Donald Rumsfeld in this provocative ghost story set in contemporary America at the plantation where Douglass lived as a 16 year old youth, recently purchased by Rumsfeld.

    Dixon D. White on "White Racial Responsibility" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."  

    Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.

    What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"

    That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.

    Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.

    I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.

    This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.

    Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...

    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real (a reentry show) 04/25/15

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right.


    America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates, and prisoners are released every day. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them.


    Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.
