"When The Drum Major Died" by Anjulle Floyd
Martin Luther King, Jr. has begun laying out plans for his Poor People’s Campaign. Florina Austin, newly married, spies a woman sitting on the steps leading up to the verandah where Florina and her husband will live. The woman’s uncanny knowledge of the space that Florina will inhabit leaves her suspicious.
The following Sunday after church, Florina witnesses the woman, she has come to know as Agnes, caress Redmond’s cheek. The look in Redmond’s eyes betrays longing. Florina and Agnes are neighbors. Their husbands, Negro doctors in Poinsettia, NC, hold prominent positions in the social and political life of their community. When Agnes flees to Memphis and joins the Sanitation Workers Protests, all are aghast, none more than Florina. As they move towards the fateful day Dr. Martin Luther King is killed, Florina learns that marriage exposes the vulnerabilities of all who pledge their trough and body. It casts an even greater shadow upon the ones who vow love unto death, and do not deliver what they have promised. When the Drum Major Died shows what happens when we resist change in favor of worn out tradition, but also what can and does occur when we open our hearts and embrace the words, “ … be first in love … be first in generosity … He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. …”
We are keeping it freeform tonight. @julito77 is solo and he will talk about some of the top stories this week at LatinoRebels.com:
#RespectheÑ: a topic we have talked about for years hit the critical mass point this week with articles in Mic and PRI.
We will also talk about how one Buckeye, Arizona police officer threatened to kill an immigrant man over a traffic stop.
We were also in San Francisco this week to see how youth from The Mission took their fight to City Hall and won.
Then there is a #FergusonOctober piece we published this weekend as well as racist graffiti at UMass Amherst.
Call in (347) 308-8633 to join the convo.
So after we published a story from Pocho.com about the California realtor who filmed her outrage about a Mexican flag on the lawn of a private home and we discussed our reaction to it on last Sunday's show, Tressy Capps, the woman who made the video, reached out to us and said she would like to be on our show.
This Sunday night at 10pmET/7pmPT, Capps will join us. We did let her know that we will be asking tough questions, but she did agree to join us, so she will.

Qatar Awareness Campaign: What and Why?
The State of Qatar is one of the preeminent sponsors of terrorism in the world today. The Qatari ruling family, the al-Thanis, also operate a virtual slave state, exploiting foreign workers while routinely withholding their pay, and even denying them exit visas. The Qataris have numerous links to the Taliban, as well as the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence Agency; they are the financiers and financial recipients of Boko Haram's terrorist and smuggling activities. In the years preceding 9/11, Qatar was host to 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohamed. Finally, the government of Qatar has been a prominent supporter of the Syrian rebels, including the rebels who have become the genocidal Islamic State.
The Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition is an ad hoc group of journalists, retired military, publishers, and activists who are helping to spread awareness concerning the influence of Qatar - a state sponsor of terrorism - in the United States. The Coalition consists of several experts on matters such as national security, Islamic terrorism, and transnational organized crime. Its members consider the Qatari influence on American foreign policy to be a major threat to national security and world peace. There are many articles of potential interest, but this may be a good place to start because it ties Qatar in with the Pakistani ISI and the Mumbai mafia. Visit this website to learn

Tonight we ask: with so much evidence pointing to Columbus not being the original discoverer of America —especially the fact that there were already native inhabitants on the continent— should it still be a celebrated holiday? City officials in Seattle don't think so and just recently renamed Columbus day to Indigenous People's Day.
