If your husband received a life sentence in prison would you stay or would you bore children with him after he received that life sentence?  Well, that is exactly what our special guest TAMU KANYAMA aka "Mama Tamu" did after she and her husband along with other comrades survived a deadly COINTELPRO attack while trying to purchase land in 1971 in Mississippi to start a separate BLACK NATION. We've also invited her youngest daughter CHINYERE NORMAN to guest co-host the show as we delve into MAMA TAMU'S book 1148 Lewis Street: A Long Journey. We dig into her story to learn about the fortitude it took to bore and raise children with her falsely imprisoned husband, and how she maintained the faith that would eventually lead to his release after only 9 years into his life sentence. MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the questions America's afraid to ask. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
