Tonight Listen to The Gist of Freedom! We will be joined by community activist iEsha Sekou from Street Corner Resources. iEsha will discuss The Michael Brown Case, Ferguson, Demilitarizing local police departments and Restoring Police Residency requirements. WWW.BlackHistoryBlog.com
"Nowadays, police are looking, and acting, more like soldiers than cops, with bad consequences. And those who suffer the consequences are usually innocent civilians.
Why armored vehicles in a Midwestern inner suburb? Why would cops wear camouflage gear against a terrain patterned by convenience stores and beauty parlors? Why are the authorities in Ferguson, Mo. so given to quasi-martial crowd control methods (such as bans on walking on the street) and, per the reporting of Riverfront Times, the firing of tear gas at people in their own yards? (“‘This my property!’ he shouted, prompting police to fire a tear gas canister directly at his face.”) Why would someone identifying himself as an 82nd Airborne Army veteran, observing the Ferguson police scene, comment that “We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone”?

Viki Winterton interviews Dr. Starla Fitch!
Surgeon. Author. Speaker. Certified Life Coach. Dr. Starla Fitch took her love of studying and understanding people to the next level.
After obtaining her master's degree in sociology from Texas A&M University and working with the elderly, she went on to medical school, internship, residency and fellowship. She studied at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Washington.
A few years after landing her "dream job," Dr. Fitch faced life-altering physician burnout. It made her question everything she thought she knew.
She found a way to remember why she went into medicine in the first place. And now she helps others in the medical profession do the same.

Deja was practically born to be a performer. The daughter of Norman Howell, a well-established stunt man/coordinator/director and stunt double for Kevin Costner, Deja traveled from location to location growing up, so it’s no wonder that she thinks of a movie set as “home.” As a little girl, Deja fell in love with the idea of performing. It would be the film “Dances with Wolves” where Deja would get her first taste of performing. She continued to participate in the ‘family business’ throughout her adolescence, but soon realized that stunts were not enough, as the life of an actress brought conflicted emotions. Having grown up on movie sets, she understands the life of an actor can be isolating, unfulfilling and unpredictable at times. With a longing to touch people’s lives through performing, it makes sense that Deja has branched out into other areas of creativity, such as music.
Deja has made sure to keep music a large part of her life, which earned a residency at Hollywood’s Bar Lubitsch. Deja not only sings, but she also plays acoustic guitar and piano.
