This week, Live on KEXP is doing something a little different. In honor of Black History Month, we’re revisiting an incredible performance from all the way back in 2016, when KEXP moved to our new home at Seattle Center. We were fortunate enough to have Miss Sharon Jones perform mere months before passing from cancer so for this episode we’re skipping story-time and replaying as many songs from this iconic performance with the Dap-Kings as we can fit in 25 minutes.

S05 | 03 - Fashion, Technology and Hope Engineering with Dr. Sharon Jones
Hope Motivates Action
As a society, what brings us together is continued growth and development. It’s in the process toward our goals where we find the sense of confidence and belonging that we need as humans. Today’s guest, Dr. Sharon Jones, shares how we can find hope in the continuous work and celebration of education. In her work, she especially sees the impact of this on young girls interested in STEM. By encouraging an environment where students and educators alike feel like they can be themselves and be passionate about their work, we can create a future where young girls and women can feel more empowered to find their place in technology. Plus, we talk about how the fashion industry uses technology and how we can engineer hope through STEM. Tune in now to learn more about seeking continual education, why women in STEM is important, and how we can foster this interest in our own communities.

Today's episode comes from a guest post by Greg J. Fox at TheTrueCrimeFiles.com, covering the unsolved murder of North Carolina college student Sharon Jones in 1984.https://thetruecrimefiles.com/sharon-jones-murder/Thank you for listening to The True Crime Files podcast!You can support our podcast and blog for as little as $2/month here: https://www.patreon.com/thetruecrimefiles?utm_content=site_sidebar_widget&utm_medium=patron_button_and_widgets_plugin&utm_campaign=&utm_term=&utm_source=https://thetruecrimefiles.com/sharon-jones-murder/
Sharon Jones graduated with honours from Harvard Law School in 1982 and, yet, during her time as US federal prosecutor she felt she was met with the assumption of being an incompetent lawyer by virtue of not being a white man. “Why aren't they pleading guilty? And the answer is that the defendant’s attorneys assumed I had no skills, that I didn't know what I was doing, and that they could go to trial against me and win,” she recalls.Black, female role modelDefeating the structural biases she faced because of her gender and race, Sharon is now a leader and role-model to black and female lawyers around the world.“There were very, very few black women federal prosecutors in Chicago. At the time, there were probably two others. And maybe the office had 100 lawyers. And in history, there had only probably been a few others... less than five,” Sharon describes.With ‘intention’ and a sharp business and legal mind, Sharon went on to become a highly successful in-house lawyer with Fortune 500 Corporations, a co-founder of Black Women Lawyers Association of Chicago and the Chief Operating Officer of the Chicago Urban League. She is now CEO of diversity consultancy, Jones Diversity - advising businesses, including leading global law firms, on diversity and inclusion strategies.A history of anti-racism protectsThrough the decades, from the protests surrounding Rodney King’s police beating in the early 1990s to the protests surrounding George Floyd’s murder in 2020, Sharon provides insight into the similarities, differences and the search for racial justice in America. On the similarities, the morbid fact is that ‘year after year’ there have been similar numbers of racially motivated murders by the police, with George Floyd’s tragic killing being the ‘final straw’. The difference between the 1990s and the 2020s protests, however, are the allies coming out in support of the Black community. Across the world, from London to Berlin, all ages and all ethnicities have banded together in the present day to fight in this battle against racism, injustice and inequality.“You see all people, of all ages, but primarily young people, but all races. That's significant because in the Rodney King days you did not see white people marching with black people,” Sharon explains. Implicit bias In discussing the patterns of ‘unconscious, implicit bias’ which arises from largely living and socialising within our own ethnic groups, Sharon identifies how the work place is the point at which ethnicities meet.“The difference is – white people have all the power,” she points out. And then asks the sobering question, “how many white, powerful men mentor a black person?”Becoming an allyWith the answer to that likely to be few, if majority communities want to contribute to dismantling a system built on racism, and sexism, Sharon advises it is about opening your eyes to racial and gender disparities, educating yourself, speaking up and being ‘willing to push for changes to limit the disparities’.Montfort Communications is proud to provide pro bono support to a range of initiatives that encourage diversity and inclusion including: 100BlackInterns, The 30% Club, The Taylor Bennett Foundation and the Gray's Inn Mentoring Scheme.
