Dr. Anna Malaika Tubbs Recognizing the Mothers Responsible for Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X & James Baldwin

With Whit

We owe credit where credit is due. Mothers. Women are consistently erased from history even though they are also in the room. They are responsible for the lives of men receiving so much attention. Dr. Anna Malaika Tubbs holds a Ph.D in Sociology and Masters in Multidisciplinary Gender Studies from the University of Cambridge and a Bachelors in Anthropology from Stanford University. Anna centers her research, writing, and talks on gender and race issues in the U.S., especially the pervasive erasure of Black women. We had the best conversation about changing the perception and narrative of motherhood, how shedding light on mothers' stories can impact U.S. policy change, and giving women of color credit. PLUS learn her four tenants for raising black children in the U.S. Anna's debut book, "The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation," is a New York Times Bestseller, New York Times Editor's Choice, and Amazon Editor's Pick.

Episode 113 - Happy Birthday James Baldwin: here's why we love this cool cat (still)

In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser

Brilliant historian Vashna Jagarnath is back!! We have decided to show James Baldwin lots of love in August, with three or four podcast episodes dedicated to the life & times of Baldwin. If you secretly don't know anything about Baldwin but have been too embarrassed to say so, we will bring you up to speed, and you'll know what the fuss is about. Hopefully it will inspire you to read him, and seek out audio and visual materials featuring him too. There is plenty of primary sources and even more secondary materials and scholarship ABOUT this genius. If you're already a Baldwin fanatic, you'll know that part of his excellence is that his work remains relevant across time and space, and therefore revisiting him is never a bad idea.In this first episode we narrate his basic biography, locate him ideologically, and begin to introduce you to major themes in his work with more particular focus on racism.Dig in & enjoy!

1001 Classic Short Stories & Tales

The classic tales of Ancient Greece have become so incorporated with our language and thought and so interwoven with our literature - that we couldn't do away with them if we tried. yet many don't receive any of the stories of this ancient culture in our schools. Almost every day we hear names like the Titans, Zeus, Jupiter, Mercury, Pluto, Poseidon, Venus, and Prometheus- and these all come from ancient Greek stories.Here are three James Baldwin stories that retell the Greek versions with less emphasis on the Greek gods and more on the stories themselves.

Ep 34. ”Giovanni’s Room” by James Baldwin

On the Same Page

Do you have the courage to love? Do you really want to be free? Then leave your innocence at the door and come with us into “Giovanni’s Room”. This, James Baldwin’s second novel, tells us the truth about love, that while it may seem like falling at first, in the end love is a growing up. This is a novel about what happens to someone if they fail to tell the truth to themselves, and what happens to someone if they pretend to be innocent long after their innocence has been lost. In short, it’s a novel about what happens when you lie to yourself about something sacred. Some of the books and authors discussed in this episode include: "Giovanni’s Room" by James Baldwin "Perfume" by Patrick Suskind “Tales of the Unexpected - Taste” by Roald Dahl Additional segments throughout the podcast include: Inner Shelf Fact or fiction What are you reading?

#341 James Baldwin's TRUCK TURNER (1974)

A Quality Interruption

EPISODE #341- Today we take on the big, ridiculous crime film that is TRUCK TURNER (1974). Starring Nichelle Nichols, Yaphet Kotto, and Isaac Hayes (who contributes a score), Truck Turner is a perfect encapsulation of a time and a place and one of the scummiest movies we've ever reviewed (it's a masterpiece is what I'm saying). We also talk about THE NORTHMAN (2022), THE FRENCH DISPATCH (2021), ACROSS 110th STREET (1972), and FEMALE PRISONER #701: SCORPION (1972). Big week for bloody movies. And Wes Anderson (happy birthday, big guy). Donate to the cause at Patreon.com/Quality. Follow the show on Twitter @AQualityInterruption, and James on Twitter @kislingtwits and on Instagram @kislingwhatsit. You can watch Cruz and show favorite Alexis Simpson on You Tube in "They Live Together."
