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.
Ever wonder how GSM mutual aid and data analytics on political campaigns go together?
Ari Gabrek worked on the Jorgenson/Cohen campaign as a Volunteer Data Analytics Assistant, and is joining Matt to discuss queer mutual aid and GSM mutual aid on the local level, and data analytics on campaigns.
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.
Jennifer Moore is the newly elected chair of the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania! Join us as we discuss her plans for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and how she plans to support the great candidates the PALP is putting forth for the various roles.
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.
