Fighting for equality – Tiffany Crutcher, founder and executive director of Terence Crutcher Foundation
Tulsa Talks: A TulsaPeople Podcast
Welcome to Tulsa Talks presented by Tulsa Regional Chamber. I'm your host Tim Landes. My guest on this episode had a very busy and productive 2020, and for that we recognized her as one of our Tulsans of the Year in our January issue. Dr. Tiffany Crutcher helped launch three weeks of protests in response to police brutality, she helped put together a Juneteenth celebration that brought lots of joy to the community the day before Donald Trump visited Tulsa and she helped out her friend Greg Robinson in his mayoral campaign that saw him finish second. She continued her work with the Terence Crutcher Foundation, which she founded and serves as executive director. She helped restore the home of a 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre survivor and in December, Hollywood star Kerry Washington donated $20,000 to the nonprofit, which Crutcher then distributed to 10 local charities. We covered a lot of topics in a Zoom conversation recorded the second week of January. She recaps her year and what's driving her in 2021 as we approach the 100th commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre. She's one of many who feel reparations are owed to the survivors and descendants. While many wonder what that would cost, Crutcher says it's about more than dollar signs. It's been over four years since her brother Terence was killed by a Tulsa Police officer. She discusses how she continues to fight for criminal justice reform and shares her thoughts on what she wants to see from the City of Tulsa in terms of changes in policing. Crutcher also reflects on the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection and how it reminded her of the unspeakable horror of what occurred in Tulsa on May 31 and June 1, 1921. She also talks about what it means to be featured as one of the many rising Black community leaders in a new mural created by Black Moon Tulsa. It can be seen at the Metro by T-Mobile at 4704 N. Peoria across the street from McClain High School. It's a powerful conversation that captures Crutcher's passion for social justice and the need for changes to be made in Tulsa to further unify our community. Following that conversation I'll share a new song from Tulsa rocker's Golden Ones. More on them later. Let's get this going. This is Tulsa Talks with Dr. Tiffany Crutcher. ******* To close out this episode, Golden Ones is sharing their song, "No Plan" off their debut album "Nowhere Fast." Writer Julie Watson had this to say about the album in our January issue: "This debut album, released Nov. 27, takes its cues from the best of ’70s rock and roll — plenty of energy, lots of glam and no shortage of infectious melodies. Sarah Frick is perfectly at ease fronting the quartet with her powerful vocals, backed by Sean Fisher on guitar, husband Jesse Frick on bass and Jay Sullivan on drums." Here is Golden Ones with "No Plan."
Terence Crutcher, Black Lives Matter & the Call for Black Lawyers
Blacks with Power| Make America Great through Black Power
Terence Crutcher is dead. He was unarmed and Betty Shelby killed him. But because America doesn't believe that Black lives matter and Betty Shelby "feared for her life," she doesn't have to face any consequences for her misjudgment of the situation the cost Terence Crutcher his life. She has the White privilege to be wrong about killing someone.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObwGP9YvXms#TerenceCrutcher is dead & #BettyShelby has the #WhitePrivilege 2 b wrong 4 killing him. We're left trying 2 prove that #BlackLivesMatter.Tweet ThisIt's so frustrating...right?The reality that in 2017 we still are trying to prove to America that Black lives matter is maddening. I think it's time to stop waiting for majority Society to decide that Black lives matter. I think it's time for us to make them matter. But like Beyoncé said, we must "get in formation."Terence Crutcher, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, Sandra Bland, et al...these instances will continue to occur until we get more Black lawyers in America.We are fighting these battles shorthanded...relying on others to fight for us. With Black lawyers making up only 4% of the nations lawyers, how can we truly fight?This was the basis of my conversation with Yusuf Abdul-Kareem, Diversity Initiatives Manager for the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC). In this episode, we talk about why it's so important to have more Black lawyers and he shares some extremely important information on what the LSAC is doing to empower more Black people to become legal professionals.There's some great content in this discussion...including a way you can get $1000 from LSAC to determine if law school is right for you!So Let Us Hear from You!Join the BWP Community and share your thoughts and responses.Resources Mentioned in this Episode: DiscoverLaw.org Council On Legal Opportunity in Education Legal Profession Statistics
In this monster episode, the Three Brothers open up with the story of Terence Crutcher, the unarmed black motorist shot and killed by Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby--who was recently acquitted. The Three Bros. turn to politics--of course--and discuss the week that was Donald Trump and the dumpster fire that the White House became. We later discuss the Netflix show "Dear White People," LaVar Ball, Sec. of Education Betsy DeVos delivering the commencement address at Bethune-Cookman University, Steve Harvey, the controversy with the Miss USA winner, To Wear or Not to Wear Rompers... ...and somehow Bill Cosby makes it into the podcast as well
