This Saturday will be the 156th anniversary of Juneteenth, the day that slaves in Texas were finally informed that they had been set free from chattel slavery, years after the Civil War had ended.
Shortly after they were freed, Black Americans across Texas created Freedom Colonies, where they began to amass great wealth and property. Jim Henderson created one of these Colonies in Freestone County.
Soon after, corrupt government officials and attorneys stole their land and tried to throw them in prison.
My guest tonight is Dr. E Henderson Lawson. She is a direct descendant of Jim Henderson, the author of Colored River, and she's going to talk about her fight for justice and recompensation.
The beauty industry is way more heavily regulated than it needs to be. Hairstylists, nail technicians and other beauty professionals have to spend years in school and pay thousands of dollars in licensing fees to cut hair, do nails and waxings, and similar services legally.
It's a mess, and my guest tonight believes she has the solution to it.
Alex Hatch is the founder of Mantifly, a free market online marketplace for clients to find mobile beauty professionals, and she has a plan to completely revolutionize the industry, while creating jobs and lowering prices in the process.
You can't make any kind of complex item without having a good supply chain in place.
Whether we're talking about automobiles, homes, vaccines and medications, clothing, or pretty much anything else, you need to be able to get the raw materials, the tools to make them into your product, and the means to market and distribute them.
Economic nationalists and woke "fairness" advocates clearly don't understand how supply chains work, and we all suffer when their policies are implemented.
How do we combat this nonsense so we can get the things we need? My guest tonight is Deidre McClosky, she's an Economics Professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago, and we're going to talk about exactly that.
No-knock raids are stupid, destructive and unnecessary. They have claimed far too many lives, and scarred many more.
And thankfully, no-knock raids will soon be a thing of the past in Tennessee, whose legislature passed a bill banning them, as well as requiring officers intervene when another officer is using excessive force.
One of the most instrumental groups behind this successful push to reform police practices is For All Tennessee, and tonight at I'm going to talk to the folks behind it, Justin Cornett and Joshua Eakle.
Drugs won the war on drugs long ago. Is Biden going to continue to destroy lives with his disastrous laws?
Author and Reason Magazine Senior Editor Jacob Sullum joins Spike tonight to talk about what lies ahead in the fight to legalize substances.
What causes police brutality, and how do we stop it?
Spike's guest tonight is Seth Stoughton. He testified in the Derek Chauvin trial, he's a law professor and police use of force expert, and they're going to answer that question tonight!
The Biden administration wants to bring back Net Neutrality, and Big Tech supports him.
But what is Net Neutrality?
Eric Peterson is the Director of Technology and Innovation Policy for the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, a free market think-tank, and he's talking LIVE with Spike tonight about it!
