SORT BY Relevancy
This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on some of the unfinished business of the civil rights movement by questioning the emotional and psychological legacy of this remarkable historical period and how it relates to current self-perceptions of the modern-day Black community. Did our strategic quest for political and legal equality neglect our need for psychological liberation? Did we push so hard to be equal with the majority group that we psychologically undermined our own unique value and beauty as a people?
Joining us to sort this out is former Tuskegee mayor Omar Neal, activist mother and lawyer Enola Aird, and psychologist Dr. Daryl Rowe. Together we will discuss this issue of emotional emancipation and its ongoing connection with our quest for civil rights.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
Hello and welcome to the Forum a show about how politics results in policies that impact people. I’m Michael Fauntroy. The Forum premiers every Friday at Noon Eastern on the Tavis Smiley Network on Blog Talk Radio. You can also hear past editions of The Forum by visiting the show page. You can follow me on my website, MichaelFauntroy.com, on Twitter @MKFauntroy, or on Facebook at Michael K. Fauntroy.
Black Youth, Social Activism, and the Post-Civil Rights Generation is today’s topic. Political and social activism is not necessarily willed from one generation to the next. Indeed, the causes rallied around differ from one generation to the next. Sekou Franklin is here to help us understand what has happened to Black youth in the post-civil rights generation.
He is associate professor of political science at Middle Tennessee State University and author of the forthcoming book After the Rebellion: Black Youth, Social Movement Activism, and the Post-Civil Rights Generation
American Vernacular takes on the issue of voter suppression and how this seems destined to become the new civil rights battle of the 21st century. How can a nation that has proliferated war around the world inthe name of democracy deny any of its citizens the right to vote in fair and free elections? It's time to ask the question. AV announces the launch of Sisters Of Action, a grassroots organization established to get urban women registered to vote.
Tune in and join the conversation. To call, dial 619-768-2924.
Tune in as the Sistas commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. They'll be joined by Civil Rights Activist and Freedom Rider, Joan Mulholland, and her son Loki Mulholland, award-winning filmmaker and director of An Ordinary Hero: The True Story of Joan Trumpauer Mulholland.
Joan Trumpauer Mulholland participated in one of the most famous and violent sit-ins of the Civil Rights Movement at the Jackson Woolworth lunch counter. She has come face-to-face with the KKK, was put on death row in Mississippi’s notorious Parchman Penitentiary with fellow Freedom Riders, and helped plan and organize the March on Washington. Following in his mother's footsteps, Loki Mulholland creates films that make a difference in the world. Joan and Loki founded the JTM Foundation, a non-profit organization that educates youth about the Civil Rights Movement and empowers them with the idea that they can make a difference.

I received an email regarding comments I made last week during the last segment of the show. I won't reveal the writer's name or email address because he is free to express his opinion but I will be addressing it today. The issue I have is with the LGBT group trying to compare the "struggle" they are going through with the Civil Rights Movement and people like Al Sharpton (my favorite) and Jesse Jackson who have more of a first hand experience co-signing these statements. I will breakdown how the two are in no way shape, form, or fashion connected. Check us out this afternoon from 4 pm to 6 pm
African-American women have played a key role in the American Civil Rights Movement. Without their struggle for freedom from racial abuse, it wouldn't have been possible for Americans to achieve racial justice. African-American women like Rosa Parks, Jo Ann Gibson Robinson and Ella Baker were a few, who led the front.
Although, women played a significant role in the Civil Rights Movement, they were not given the necessary attention they deserved. Their names are lost in the pages of history. People all over US celebrate Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, but little do they know that Martin Luther King, without the support, hard work and help from African-American women, particularly Rosa Parks, Ella Baker and Jo Ann Gibson Robinson, would not have achieved as much as he did. In fact, it was Rosa Parks' act of defiance that ignited the national Civil Rights Movement.
On July 2, 1964, exactly 50 years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the historic Civil Rights Act. The legislation outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender or national origin. It also ended discriminatory application of voter registration requirements as well as racial segregation in schools as well as in the workplace.
This landmark legislation was viewed as the culmination of the work of the civil rights movement. We are honored to have with us on this historic anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act, Mr. Jesse Epps, one of Dr. Martin Luther King's closest friends and advisors. Mr. Epps was with Dr. King on the day of his assassination.
It is the life mission of Jesse Epps to forward the work of Dr. King. He was a major part of the civil rights movement back then, and now, Jesse Epps is making history with the Rebirth of America http://americarebirth.org and Neighbors Uniting American Families. http://nuafonline.org He will share about that and how you can play a role.
We have come a long way with Civil Rights. The problem is that we still have a very long way to go!
