Ep. 15 Kobe, The Beatles, and 747's [01-31-2020]

As much as things continue to change in life, we continue to see patterns that remain the same. The patterns of attitude and work ethic continue to produce success. Drawing on examples from Kobe Bryant, John Henry, Derrick Coleman and more, this episode takes a look at what it means to commit to a goal, what it means to work hard, and why attitude determines altitude.

Ep. 14 State's Attorney Kim Foxx [01-22-2020]

NOTE-- Our apologies for the variations in the audio level. There were technical difficulties that weren't caught until the interview had been completed, however we felt the conversation was too important to not share. Kim Foxx is a first in the history of the Cook County State's Attorney's office. Her distinction is not only a result of her being the first African American elected to lead the 2nd largest State's prosecutors office in the nation, but because of the stance she has taken in making an office that has historically been associated with little more than trying and convicting people--one that can be an advocate for social justice. SA Foxx was a major contributor to the legislation that expunged the criminal records of individuals convicted of certain marijuana related crimes, now that its sale has been legalized by the Illinois state legislature (Jan 01, 2020). Prior to state legislation that went into effect this year (2020), her office stopped prosecution of individuals charged with driving on suspended license, due to failure to pay parking tickets back in 2017. And her stance on bond reform, where she advocates that people who pose no threat to the public should not languish in jail because they are poor. We talk about the office, how her life experiences impact the way she approaches her position, the need to confront the problem of race, the F.O.P., the Jussie Smollet case--how it has been politicized and what it really means, and what it means to be a public servant.

Ep. 12 Dr. King in Context [01-20-2020]

Dr. King's legacy is often reduced to the famous "Dream" speech, but the real power of his voice, his commitment to his faith was not only in his rejection of racism, but in his rejection of economic exploitation and militarism. The address heard in this work are not in order, but they certainly sound like they could be. Dr. King's message was so consistent and sound that moving the beginning to the end, or the middle to the beginning took nothing away from it at all. Dr. King was a truth teller, in a world that couldn't handle the truth. Music Tariq I. El-Amin Dr. King's "Why I Oppose Vietnam" & "The Three Evils of Society" are used here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8d-IYSM-08&t=2017s

Ep. 11 Inconvenient Democracy [01-16-2020]

Nothing screams democracy like free and open election. And with the 2020 Presidential election around the corner lets take a look at how the democracy we think we have is influenced by news outlets, controlled by private interest. While we're at it, let's examine a few instances of our government's abandonment of its allegiance to democracy when foreign democracies don't benefit the United States, think Iran, Congo, and Haiti.

Ep. 9 Speech: What To The Slave Is The Fourth of July

On July 5, 1852 Frederick Douglass delivered a speech that would become known as "What to the Slave Is The Fourth of July?" Delivered in Corinthian Hall, Rochester, New York addressing the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society. It is equal parts homage, rebuke, and a message of hope to a nation early in its growth that it could live up to the lofty ideals upon which it was founded. Read by Tariq I. El-Amin

Ep. 7 Black History Month Lessons [02-26-2019]

This episode is commentary on the impact and perception of Black History Month. BHM is almost one hundred years old and I argue that its only having half of the potential impact on our national consciousness. If Black History Month were really used as the educational platform it is, would there be a need for a Black Lives Matter movement? Would the nation be properly sensitized to the cancer of White Supremacy and White Privilege and be working amend its conduct? Host/Producer-Tariq I.

Ep. 6 J- Seriyus: Muslim Black American [02-17-2019]

Muslim Black American, a song by artist J-Seriyus (Jameel F. Karim) represents the intersecting identities of Muslim and African American. Tariq talks with him about issues of race within the Muslim community, the importance of Black male artist moving beyond typical expressions of masculinity, the importance of sharing painful or traumatic experiences in art, and what he hopes to achieve through his music. Jameel F. Karim aka J- Seriyus is a Chicago Native who began rapping at the age of 15 and has performed abroad and across the United States. Early in his career, he released projects as a member of the group MPAC. In 2018 J-Seriyus co-founded Elite Regime Entertainment and released his first solo album "Tested."
