Nina Simone and Mohammed Ali are the inspiration for this show. Their activism, beliefs and convictions put their careers in jeopardy.Ms. Simone was blackballed and suffered mentally from her strong beliefs and statements regarding the treatment of Black people in America. Because Mohammed Ali refused to fight in the Vietnam War, he was stripped of his title. They both stood strong. Hae musicians, artists, actors and writers in our community lost the plot? Hip-Hop used to be message music and now it's anything but. Are we as artists obligated to speak to the times? Does our music, do our books and plays provoke thoughtful dialogue or controversy? Where is the activism today? Join me and my guests, Eloise Laws of the iconic Laws Family, Roz Ayers-Williams, playwright, Rita Graham, vocalist and author, Joan Cartwright, entertainer, activist and founder of Women in Jazz South Florida, as well as others who are calling in to hear their thoughts on the state of our art today.

In the third hour, Wayne Jones drops by! He might not stay long because he's covering a LOT of territory while he's in the States. In Australia, he is known as one of the mightiest session bassists of all time! He's also a songwriter and arranger and master clinician. For over three decades, Wayne has gifted other musicians with the beauty of that fluid, funky and fearless bass. With his years of studio work - and his TV/film credits - Wayne thought it was time to release another body of work to feed the Jones-hungry crowd who demanded it.

Civil Chat with Lee
Call in 215 383 5844
Civil Chat with Lee looks at the following. Call in at 215 383 5844 to listen or talk. 1. Dylan Roof. Was he influence by The Confederate Flag? Should the Confederate Flag be taken down? 2. Ted Cruz makes gun jokes at speech much too soon after South Carolina murder spree. 3. Bernie Sanders. Too liberal or right on? Does he present a threat to Hilary? 4. Sam Brownback and his "supply side" economics theories lead to cuts, and tax increase. Is this not a model for how SS economics does NOT work? 5. Burwell vs King. This will be a major talking point for GOP presidential candidates. Is Obama responsible for the wording of the ACA and should he take the blame if the SC rules in favor of the plaintiff? Or is the GOP responsible for the backlash of millions of Americans being denied healtchare?
And Much much more.
In this episode of Cutting-Edge Benefits by ClaimLinx, Tom Quigley, national business consultant at ClaimLinx, will be discussing with Christopher Roach, services manager at ClaimLinx, the upcoming Supreme Court decision, which will determine the future of the Afforable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The Supreme Court heard arguments for the King v. Burwell case on March 4 and a decision is expected by the end of June. The case concerns the eligibility of millions of Americans for health insurance premium tax credits, or subsidies. Should the court rule against the ACA, millions of citizens in 37 different states will no longer receive subsidies for their health care plans. Tom will be talking about Obama's confidence in the law, the GOP's current plan and the fallout after the decision.

Burwell?
The MOMocrats had a hard time watching the videotape of the police action at that McKinney, Texas pool party this weekend - but, as Cynematic points out, the results may indicate hope for the next generation in the fight against racism. Just keep carrying those smartphones, folks, so we can continue to document abuse when we see it.
Also discussed: The lack of planning for what could happen to folks with health insurance on the Federal exchanges if the King v. Burwell decision strikes down funding, the budget problems in red states and the California "miracle," and surprisingly strong polling numbers for a fictional villain. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss politics from a progressive POV in this Engender Media Group production.
