Bonus with Gerald Horne https://www.patreon.com/posts/16584864
A funny thing happened on the way to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I tweeted out a post I’d written a few years ago which was a listacle of “The 11 most anti-capitalist quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.” I had no idea people on Twitter would accuse me of “whitesplaining,” Martin Luther King and cherry picking his words and speeches in order to find the socialisty or capitalism-critiquing nuggets hidden in his free-market-praising rhetoric. I decided to talk to some experts: historian and comedian Justin Williams and historian and prolific, eminent, scholar, writer, radical Gerald Horne. Williams talks to us about Pan-Africanism, Ghanaian independence, and Fred Hampton. Horne talks to us about MLK and W. E. B. Du Bois. Stand by for the bonus on to multi-racial organize, or not to multi-racial organize: that is the question.
@katie-halper: Oh and I know Ava Farkas! Worked together with her in NY fighting the power. 2 degrees.
@katie-halper: I think it was slightly less bad at the beginning of the episode, then got a little worse after the first few minutes. Thanks!
@historiansplaining: is this throughout the epsioide?
@historiansplaining: ok. Thanks. Will work on it.
Katie I love your show, but the volume is always way too soft, especially when you are talking. I can barely hear you. (This is not sarcasm.)
