Michael Lange (director and actor, role: Hon. Elijah Muhammad) and Kreshenda Jenkins (Sister Betty X) join us to talk about Larry "Americ" Allen's The Expulsion of Malcolm X, opening March 23 at Laney College in Oakland. Michael Lange, actor, director and filmmaker, is best known for his portrayal as a Malcolm X delineator, having performed the fiery freedom fighter and orator’s speeches nationally on stage since early 1990. He has directed two award-winning plays, ‘Ceremonies in Dark Old Men’ (Best Play Award) and ‘The Old Settler’ (Best Director). As a playwright, he wrote the play ‘Prophet Nat’, a musical docudrama based on the life of slave-prophet Nat turner. Currently, he is on the faculty at San Jose State University, where he has taught since 1998. Lange continues to write and perform for stage and film, and lives in Oakland, California. Kreshenda Jenkins (Sister Betty X), a thespian at heart, has always had a passion for performing arts. She started acting on stage at the age of 15 and although she took a hiatus for some time she is back and ready to play her role as “Betty X” for a second time. We close with a conversation with Rachel Caplan, Founder & Executive Director of the San Francisco Green Film Festival and Bill Morrison, director, The Great Flood, USA, 2013, 80 min, screens Sunday, June 1, at The Little Roxie and Leah Mahan, director, and Derrick Christopher Evans, subject in the film, Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek, USA, 2013, 56 min., screens Saturday, May 31, at the Roxie Theatre, followed by a panel discussion.
We open with an interview with Larry Americ Allen re: the World Premiere of "The Expulsion of Malcolm X," which opens in San Francisco at the Southside Theatre in Ft. Mason Center, Bldg. D., 3rd floor, (510) 213-0401. Directed by Michael Lange, the play runs F-Sat. 8 p.m., Sun., 3 p.m. April 12-May 5, 2013, browntickets. The next interview is with the subjects: Amlan Ganguly, Salim Shekh, and Sikha Patra, in Nicole Newnham and Maren Granger-Monsen's film, which opened in SF Bay Area theatres, April 5, 2013, The Revolutionary Optimists: How Far Would You Go to Change Your World? Amlan Ganguly empowers children to become activists and educators, with powerful results. The Revolutionary Optimists follows him as he attempts to replicate his work in the brick fields outside the city, where children live and work in unimaginable conditions.Using street theater, puppetry, and dance as their weapons, the children in Calcutta's slums have cut their neighborhoods' malaria and diarrhea rates in half, and turned former garbage dumps into playing fields. Now, pushing at the limits of optimism, Amlan is attempting to take his work into the brickfields outside Calcutta, where spend their days making and carrying bricks using methods unchanged by centuries. The Revolutionary Optimists proposes a workable solution to intractable problems associated with poverty, including preventable diseases and ineffectual governance. Ganguly's story suggests that education and child empowerment are crucial keys to lifting entire societies out of hopelessness.

What is our immigration policy now? Why are sending their kids here? Who are they, Where are they from? Who is paying for the cost of care, trasnportation,,housing, detention. Has this overwhelmed our already overtaxed system. Should there be provide amnesty to some. How does this country benefit from the influx of illegal alens coming to this country. Why do we call them illegal aliens? Why now, are there loopholes in our system that they are exploiting?
The History of Christianity #22
Our Scripture passage today is John 15:18 which reads: "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you."
Our quote today is from Justin the Martyr. He said, "We ourselves were well conversant with war, murder and everything evil, but all of us throughout the whole wide earth have traded in our weapons of war. We have exchanged our swords for plowshares, our spears for farm tools…now we cultivate the fear of God, justice, kindness, faith, and the expectation of the future given us through the Crucified One….The more we are persecuted and martyred, the more do others in ever increasing numbers become believers."
Today, we are discussing "First Conflicts with the State" (Part 2) from Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Let's continue looking at A New Jewish Sect
A good illustration of this policy was the expulsion of Jews from Rome by Emperor Claudius, around the year 51. Acts 18:2 mentions this expulsion, but does not explain the reason for it. Suetonius, a Roman historian, says that Jews were expelled from the capital city for their disorderly conduct "because of Chrestus." Most historians agree that "Chrestus" is none other then Christus, and that what actually took place in Rome was that Christian proclamation caused so many riots among Jews that the emperor decided to expel the lot. At that time, Romans still saw the conflict between Christians and Jews as an internal matter within Judaism.
How do we do a better job of understanding and helping students with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in our schools...while simultaneously feeling like we're "holding kids accountable"...while attending to the diverse needs of other students...while trying to make sure they all do well on high-stakes testing? Not by simply increasing detentions, suspensions, and expulsions or referring behaviorally challenging kids into the judicial system! In this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and Lost at School, and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps you view challenging behavior in a more compassionate, accurate, productive manner and intervene more effectively. If you want to learn more about his model, have questions about how to get the ball rolling on using the model in your building or classroom, or are having difficulty using the model with a particular student, this is your opportunity to get your questions answered and listen to how other educators are overcoming obstacles and aplying the model. You can join in live -- the program airs every Monday at 3:00 pm Eastern time -- or listen to archives of past programs.
Our guest on today's program was Tim Graves, Superintendent of Schools and Programs in the Near North District School Board in Ontario, Canada. He has some interesting ideas about the characteristics of schools that successfully implement the CPS model (and those that struggle), and those ideas sparked a very interesting discussion among our group of principals.
What lead some angels to shun the light for the vain self-glorifying promise of reigning temporarily over the earth and humanity? Unless one has knowledge of the angels banishment prior to the fall of Adam and Eve, one would not know that there has been an evil presence on this planet waging war against the seed of Yahweh since even before the beginning of recorded post deluge history. Unless one understands that there were two falls, one would not understand why evil rules in this realm and why it has persisted for so long. The fallen angel’ desire not to leave any of humanity for inheritance of the ordinances they abandoned in heaven. This is key to understanding evil and why it is still with us today.
In this episode, I will discuss Kahanism. Is it a terrorist cult? Rabbi Meir Kahane has been worshipped as a cult leader in the eyes of his followers. That movement has produced violent extremists like Baruch Goldstein and Yigal Amir. Kahane and his followers have advocated for throwing all the Arabs out of Israel. But how would that look to the world? Wouldn't that legitimise the anti-Israel propaganda machine and make their false allegations true? Is it the answer for Jews to expel a minority in their own country after being a persecuted minority for more than two thousand years? For a while, I've been an enthusiastic supporter of the Greater Israel agenda and have always bought from the Kahanist stand at the Salute Israel Parade [even though I wasn't an official Kahanist, they were pretty much the only ones who had material that appealed to me]. So is Kahanism a terrorist cult? Or are they in love with an unrealistic agenda? Tune in, as I discuss the issue of Kahanism.
The Educators Panel shared their thoughts on an article that recently appeared in the Christian Science Monitor (click here) in which recommendations for improving school discipline from the Discipline Disparities Collaborative were described. And they had some thoughts on a bunch of other things too!
Seventh in a series on Anti-Semitism.
Mel Brooks' takeoff from History of the World notwithstanding, the Inquisition and the expulsion from Spain were together one of the great nightmares of the Jewish people, rivalling the destruction of the Temple in significance. We will examine both the Inquisiton and the expulsion, and consider their consequences both as regards anti-Semitism and as regards Jewish self-definition in the aftermath of the catastrophe.
On this month's program, the Educators Panel tackled the question of how to ensure that CPS outlives a principal's tenure in the building...and then got an update from (and had some guidance for) Mallett School in Farmington, Maine, one of the schools implementing CPS building-wide.
