Why has a great deal of our attempts to unify, or create unifying movements fail or stall? Is it all on us?, or is it other forces at work to insure the failure of our efforts? We talked about this and other topics with our guest.

Farming is one of the main staples in human life, unfortunately, Black farmers have struggled to get the same rights as White farmers. Today, Black farmers are still fighting for their rights. From 1920 to 2000, Blacks went from owning 20 million acres to 1,500,00 acres owned by Black farmers. U.S. Federal District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman consented to the decree on April 14, 1999. The settlement recognized discrimination against Black farmers. The settlement was the largest civil rights class action settlement in American history with over $2 billion. Black farmers continued to protest due to not receiving the money from the settlement and debt relief. Investigations were launched which led to the discovery that the USDA was holding back three quarters of the $2.3 billion. This led to another suit, Pigford II. To many Black farmers the claims amount of $50,000 was not sufficient, it has been more about access to loans, debt relief and land loss. The administration under leadership of President Obama that has claimed victory for our Black Farmers is far from the truth. The discrimination that contributed to the decline of the Black Farmer as well as loss of land, that lead to the Black Farmers Settlement, still persist. You can get involved and join this fight for our farmers by joining an organization.

Our movements have music as the backdrop to ignite the fire and help it burn continuously in the belly of those seeking justice!
Historically it has been the drum and spoken word of our great ancestors.
Our youth need to hear the alternative messages of hip hop!
The HIP lyrics and beats that resonate with your heart. As a result you HOP to positive action!
You don’t ask permission for freedom….You don’t ask permission to breathe…You don’t ask permission not to be shot, maimed or murdered!
If someone puts their hand over your mouth and nostrils….What is the innate response for securing your freedom to breathe?
If someone pushes and attempts to keep your head under water…What is the innate response for securing your freedom to breathe?
