Madison Star Moon interviews political activist Chris Dorsey.
After weeks of waiting the decision of the Grand Jury comes down...No Indictment. As expected, violence, destruction of property and mayhem erupt across the country.
We will start the morning recapping the events that put this small community into the international spotlight. Is this event a photograph of America 2014? Has this event been milked for the sake of politics, media ratings and/or used as a tool for "race baiting" and division of the country?
President Obama, Al Sharpton and hordes of other politicos, actors and activist take to the airways to put in their two cents...Help or Gas on the Flames?
Special guest Michelle Wiles, politico, candidate, activivist, wife and mother will join us "In the Pickle Barrel". Miles, a mother of six homeschooled children, somehow finds the time to not only "buck the system", but work to do something to create change.
Wiles will share her vision and why she is so involved. Perhaps just as important...how does she find the time!
Hope you will join us this morning at 8AM-10AM EST as we gather "In the Pickle Barrel" in search of a way to get out.
Paul Richmond is an artist, activist, and storyteller. His work often incorporates elements of pop culture, politics, and his own experiences as a gay man. You can see all of his work, purchase some prints and more at http://paulrichmondstudio.com. His latest series, War Paint, explores ideas of identity and masculinity through expressive, figurative paintings of men covering their bodies with paint. He enjoys working with models who have made important or interesting contributions to LGBT culture, and he's painted everyone from Jack Mackenroth to Perez Hilton. Many of the "gaylebrity" models were a part of his Cheesecake Boys series, a gay/male spin on classic pin-up art from the 40's and 50's.
When he's not painting, he is busy with a non-profit organization that he founded with his childhood art teacher called the You Will Rise Project. Their mission to empower young people who have experienced bullying to speak out through the creation of uncensored artworks. He was bullied horribly as a kid and having a creative outlet made all the difference. He does free workshops for young people, a mentorship program connecting college artists with bullied high school students, a special project last spring called Art For Michael in support of an 11 year old boy who attempted suicide after being bullied for his love of My Little Pony, and a new social media photo campaign called #SelfieRespect.

Him and his husband are involved with the fight for marriage equality as well. They were married a year and a half ago with a group of 24 other LGBT couples who rode a bus to Washington DC and had our ceremony in front of the Supreme Court building just days before DOMA was repealed.
Jane Elliott is an American former schoolteacher, recognized most prominently as an anti-racism activist and educator. She is also known as a feminist and LGBT activist. Elliott created the famous "blue-eyed/brown-eyed" exercise, first
done with third-grade school children in the 1960s, which later became the basis for her career in diversity training.
The exercise was conducted the day following Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The purpose of the exercise was
to try to teach her students the effects of being a minority. Her exercise, and the subsequent controversy, became the basis for the television documentaries Eye of the Storm (1970) and A Class Divided (1985). Elliott was also recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education and many other awards.
DAVY: "It's been almost 2 years since Pete Eyre, Copblock founder told me I could no longer write for CB, and then banned me, after I called him out for refusing to remove comments an individual named Justin Bainter was posting on the CB site, detailing my home address, as well as my children's schools, etc. Justin Bainter is an obsessed, very disturbed individual who has been stalking me and my children for well over 2 years now. Bainter is friends with several Rochester, NY Police officers, and as a result has the support and backing of the RPD. I have been a passionate community activist against police misconduct and corruption for the past 20 years.
Before that, I accompanied my dad, the late Mario Vara, also an activist against police corruption in the 1980's. Since Pete Eyre banned me from Copblock, Justin Bainter has continued his twisted behavior. Some of you will be interested to know that Justin Bainter runs a new Facebook page called EXPOSING COP BLOCKERS. What an irony. Pete Eyre supported this individual threatening my family, including my minor children, and now Justin Bainter is leading an attack on Copblock, its contributors, and anyone who stands up against police misconduct and corruption."

Bond, a Maine native, has also been active in Maine environmental issues, creating http://savingmaine.org/ to raise awareness about the potential dangers industrial wind development might pose to Maine’s environment.
