    Exploring Laura Plantation and Faubourg Treme

    in Travel

    Louisana's Creole culture and a famed New Orleans' neighborhood share the spotlight on today's show.  Our Creole cultural exploration takes us just outside New Orleans to the Old Mississippe River Road where we'll share the story of a Creole family and a plantation named Laura--voted "Best history tour in the USA" by Lonely Planet Travel and a top travel attraction in Louisiana.  Laura Plantation, named after Laura Locoul Gore, is an old sugarcane plantation over 200 years old.  We experienced life on the plantation as a member of the Locoul family through the voice of one of Laura's decendents, Norman Marmillion.  We will also visit Faubourg Treme with filmmaker Dawn Logsdon.  Treme is considered the oldest black neighborhood in America and the birthplace of the civil rights movement in the South.  Treme is a place where African-Americans lived free during slavery and became a place of social and economic diversity.

    12 Years To "Make" A Slave - The Gentrified Person

    in Real Estate

    On "It's My House" we shall discuss what makes up a "Gentrified Person". People who are gentrified are slaves.  By observation It takes a person about (12) years to BECOME a "Gentrified Slave". How does this happen :



    12 years of "institutionalized" education.
    12 years of being told to get a "job" instead of starting a business.
    12 years of watchiing your parents buy things on credit that they could not afford.
    After you graduate from high school or college.....you become a debt slave by purchasing a car, house, wedding rings, etc. etc.
    People who live in neighborhoods that get gentrified are usually "Debt Slaves" and are too busy living the life of a slave and when they wake up....one day they discover that their neighborhood has become "The Plantation"...........and they have to move out.

    SATURDAY HIGH NOON

    in Politics

    State news shorts, commentary and part 3 of my discussion with Kansas activist Frank Smith of Pine Bluff about the billionaire Koch brothers and emperor Brownback's legions.


    Read Chris Reeves up-to-the-minute state budget report as the legislature "goes into hiding."


    Thaddeus Russell is author of A Renegade History of the United States (Free Press, 2010). Russell's talk was recorded by Todd Boyle and broadcast on "Mind Over Matters" by Mike McCormick (www.talkingsticktv.org).


    New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "gun") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.


    The leisure we enjoy today--weekends, vacations, etc--was not granted freely by employers. Rather, it was taken without permission by "renegade" workers of decades past. These included slaves, drunken craftsmen, unmotivated factory hands, etc. For instance, plantation slaves established the practice of "vacation"--much to the annoyance of their masters. (They'd agree to return in exchange for not being punished.)


    Part 2 focuses on sex and women's rights. Many rights and freedoms enjoyed today by U.S. women (and their male friends) were won for them--not by feminists--but by 19th & early-20th century prostitutes & madams. These include the right to own property; to acquire wealth; to dance, smoke, and drink in public; to wear attractive clothing; to give or receive oral sex; to have interracial intimacy; and to use contraceptives. 


    A rollicking good story, well-told by Thaddeus Russell.

    GetAtMeInDaMixxx ft TheWeekNd and More

    in Hip Hop Music

    Man on this mix we’re finally found out how were gonna do these weekly mixes.  Now we’re gonna take the top selling cut on iTunes and mix it other top trending new cuts (we were sort of doing that already but know I’m just letting you know the process of how we pick the lead song.)


    The WeekNd “THE HILLS” went straight to the top of the itunes sales chart (over 20, 000 downloads a day.  Somebody’s buying #LSMH)….


    Rihanna “BBHMM” this record is probably the summer anthem (also still selling strong.  It was just the right song for the mix…….


    Young Thug “CHECK” No matter how you feel about Thug, this dude finds hits #FRFR.  No doubt about that…….


    Kendrick Lamar “KING KUNTA” Kendrick put together a really great and funky track with this one.  Are today’s hiphop fans the children of Kunta Kinte and has hiphop cut their legs off so they can’t get off the plantation……?


    Mark Ronson ft Mystikal “FEEL RIGHT” This is a great comeback record for Mystikal (I really hope this cut catch on because it’s a great cut).  I’m sure this will be jamming down on Bourban Street…..


    Dizzle RED ft D-Roc (of the Yin Yang Twins) “RATTLESNAKE” This cut here brings us back to why Yin Yang worked.  They just made some fun ass club songs that kept the girls dancing and twerkin.  This cuts no exception.  Dizzle RED has a sharp clever delivery and folks are on his team.  #DjAlert #ThisOnesInTheMixxx


    That’s this GetAtMeInDaMixxx #10

    Pan-African Journal: Special Worldwide Radio Broadcast

    in Politics

    Listen to this special broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. This program features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the situations in Egypt, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq and other issues. The second hour presents an archived audio file on the contemporary legacy of racial discriminatory housing practices in the United States in light of the recent rebellions in Ferguson and Baltimore. Also in this segment we present a KPFA weekend news program containing an interview with Abayomi Azikiwe on the struggle against property tax foreclosures in Detroit. In the final hour we look at the settler-colonial imposed systems of land encroachment, missionary interventions and Native American involvement in plantation agricultural as well as the enslavement of Africans in the U.S. South during the early 19th century.
