On todays show we will be talking to Mr. Willie Bradford City Councilman for District A in the city of Shreveport Louisiana. Our topic for today will be economic development and income disparity in the city of Shreveport.
Christine McDonald is an internationally recognized author and speaker on the social injustices facing underserved populations today. As a survivor of human trafficking, homelessness, and addiction, Christine- now blind as a result of a disease that forced her to choose between her unborn child and her eyesight- is on a mission to bring justice and awareness to the forefront of social change through education and unconditional love.
Christine began life in a small town in Oklahoma, in a very dark and painful household. She felt safest using her own survival skills to live on the streets and ran away for the last time when she was just 15. This began her 17 year journey of homelessness, which comprised of being sex trafficked, drug addiction, prostitution, 103 arrests and 7 prison stints. Finally ready for a better life and barely able to read or write, Christine began a new journey of exiting the life of the streets, only to be challenged again.
Completely blind and eternally vigilant, today Christine uses her life experience and education to work as an advocate for trafficking victims, the homeless, recovering addicts, ex-offenders and disabled populations. Currently living in St Louis, Missouri, Christine is a proud mom of her 7 year old son and practices a loving open adoption with her daughter’s adoptive parents in nearby Kirkwood. Christine is the author of Cry Purple: One Woman’s Journey through Homelessness, Crack Addiction and Prison to Blindness, Motherhood and Happiness and is the founder of www.ChristinesVision.org. She has also been featured locally and nationally on various media outlets, including NBC, CBS, FOX and NPR and sits on multiple local, state-wide and international level boards and committees.
We will speak with the creator of the cultural event that will take place tonight at the Met Museum Mrs. Rubie Britt-Height.
Rubie R. Britt-Height has been the Director of Community Relations for The Mint Museum since 2008. She initiates and manages opportunities to collaborate with culturally diverse community groups, businesses and other organizations to promote art exhibitions and programs. She manages audience development through education and outreach initiatives, represents the Mint at public speaking engagements and serves as an arts ambassador with an emphasis on underserved and underrepresented populations, but her outreach includes numerous diverse groups. She also founded the Romare Bearden Society at the Mint, which has acquired and gifted 3 major works of art to the Museum.
Her main diversity programs are the Grier Heights Youth Arts Program, now in its 11th year, and Mint to Move Cultural Dance Night, held quarterly at the Mint Museum Uptown at the Levine Center for the Arts.
Kristina Tester is a 2014 graduate of Harvard University, with degrees in African and Global Health. She is the founder and executive director of So Others May Learn, a non-profit organization based in Zimbabwe and Uganda that is dedicated to providing bright and motivated students in sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to further their educations through comprehensive scholarships that support them through their four years of secondary school. The scholarships cover tuition, room and board, transportation, uniforms, and supplies for qualified students who would otherwise never have the opportunity to further their dreams.
Kristina traveled to Uganda twice a year while in college, spending summers and winters working at the hospital and with Uganda's Ministry of Health to coordinate village health teams that could more effectively reach rural communities. Her senior thesis, titled “Increasing the Effectiveness of Healthcare Delivery to Rural Areas: A Case Study of Village Health Teams and Childhood Malnutrition in Rukungiri District, Uganda”, was awarded the Harvard Hoopes Prize for outstanding research and scholarly work, and she was the recipient of the Phillipe Wamba Prize for highest achievement in her Division. Kristina is planning to begin medical school in the fall of 2016 and hopes to combine her medical degree with a Masters in Public Health. She is committed to continuing her efforts to provide education and medical services to underserved communities at home and abroad.
Last week I went to a function at the Harris County Democratic Party. A young speaker at the event spent about half a hour talking about the United Steelworkers Union strike against 11 refineries including Royal Dutch Shell and LyondellBasell in the Houston Area.
I read a lot of news. Why is this news not widely out there. At a time when we are constantly talking about income inequality and wealth disparity one would think it would be covered. At a time when labor unions are in decline, how is it not news?
