As we watch what is happening in our country, politically and socially it's hard not to be reminded of how things have changed, yet, how much they have actually stayed the same.  Back in the 60’s when I was born, the civil rights movement took on a very different look once it was televised. Most of the country didn’t realize what was going on outside of their comfort zone until they turned on the television and witnessed with their own eyes the injustice that was taking place in the world as they sat on their comfy couches.

Fast forward to 2018 when we no longer have to turn the knob of a television set to view the news as we are now walking around with it  24/7 365 right in the palms of our hands with a Smartphone or other mobile device.

Through the decades there have been many individuals and groups more specifically artists who have  been on the right side of the law and in the thick of activism.  Many have used their platforms and their ability to use their talents to command large audiences in order to spread the word of injustices.

Most of us have heard about artists who are activist such as Nina Simone, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Bono, Sting, James Baldwin and Mos Def, who have been vocal, but what about the local artists in our own communities who are activist?

My guest, Madeline Porter is an artist with a cause and we will talk about it this evening at 6 PM EST.  Listen in or call in to share your cause at (516-453-9957).
