An identified [DELETED] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas.

This week, we’re going to unwind a little with a musical interlude. We’ll be talking about some of the great ‘protest songs’ that became anthems of liberty during the otherwise bleak ‘American Century’, inspiring many with hope for Truth and Justice.
What makes a ‘protest song’ anyway? We’ll also be talking about some lesser known music that didn’t quite ‘make it’, but nevertheless struck a powerful chord with some because they record a truer version of history the victors would prefer we forget.
We’re going to be joined by Tim Trepanier, singer-songwriter and travelling troubadour from the prairie lands of Canada. Lead singer and guitarist for folk band Relic, we might even convince Tim to play a couple of his tunes for us live on air!
Join us this Sunday February 16th from 8-10pm EST (11am-1pm PST / 8-10pm CET) as we reel in the years with a jig and tune.
Protest and resistance have been grassroots tools that communities use to create systemic change. Today, protests in education are demanding common-sense approaches to education and education reform. Students, parents and families, teachers are banding together in cities across the country in protest of, among other things, school discipline policies and practices, teacher evaluation rubrics, and standardized tests.
My guest, Jesse Hagopian, is a history teacher at Garfield High School in Seattle, Washington. Jesse recently organized his fellow teachers at Garfield and other Seattle schools and refused to administer the state standardized test, the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress). This boycott has led to several other local efforts to resist the national push to test public-school students, rather than provide meaningful, teacher-developed assessment. Jesse will talk to us about the MAP boycott and about how it fits in the larger picture of resistance and protest in education.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which works with schools and non-profit organizations to create education equity plans and promote equity in education in compliance with federal civil rights law.
QUESTION OF THE NIGHT: WHAT IS THE BLACK COMMUNITY TO DO IN ORDER TO BE PROTECTED IN AMERICA
Tonight’s episode is dedicated to all the blacks in the community who have ever been treated unfairly with undeserved outcomes. We’re discussing what we need to do to better this country for our future generation. The pressure is rising and it is up to us, today, to make a difference. Don’t think for a second that because of your lack of education or age that you don’t have a voice. Ignorance is bliss, however being ignorant shouldn’t give you the right to be oblivious to what’s going on around you. President Obama said, "There's no excuse for violence," which I somewhat agree with. However, when violence is bestowed upon us in the form of tear gas, and hateful chants from the people who are supposed to ‘protect and serve’, what do you expect us to do? Sit down and take it? Or use the same force that’s been used against us for years & fight back? We should show resilience in dealing with difficult situations as such. That being said, I offer up my opinion as to what we could possibly do to make a difference:
Educate our children of our history and how to be a positive leader in today’s society.
Protest against discriminating corporations & their businesses.
Donate our money & time to create outreach programs to further support our children in reaching their dreams & goals.
Continue to fight & stop assuming because it’s out of sight that we must put it out of mind.
We can’t believe that we will be accepted by all, however, we need to accept ourselves and demand that things be changed so we can progress.
