    "King Day: To Forget Is to Forfeit"

    "King Day: To Forget Is to Forfeit"

    "King Day: To Forget Is to Forfeit"

    Since 1983, communities and organizations have celebrated King Day through various, creative and serious celebrations and forums. A national monument in Washington has been erected in Dr. King's honor. However, there seems to be a diffusion in what we teach, remember and understand about Dr. King's contribution to this country. The holiday seems to have become somewhat less deliberative in our celebrations. 

    We now have generations of Black children, a new scholarship that tends to marginalize the power of his transformative power in our own communities. We read and quote his words outside the context and the import of the history he ignited.

    "The Final Season: Black Aspiration in a Dying Democracy"

    We enter the last Season of OUR COMMON GROUND examining the dire and troubling nature of our country. Each time, we think it cannot get worse, it does. Indeed it does. The system of white supremacy has embedded itself, perhaps permanently, in our system of government and has been normalized in our politics. How must we respond and sustain the spirit that carried us across the unstable bridges of the past?

    OUR COMMON GROUND 2021 Season Review & Close

    Looking back at the information, ideas, lessons, and insight during this 2021 Season. As we close, we celebrate our 35 years of broadcasting. Thirty-five years later, I can say that I'm still learning how to amplify Black voices. Still mastering the skill to raise this heavy struggle, manage so much rage and articulate the constant need for assessment of the narrative, but not the history from which it rises. Talking race in courage and with hope continues to be the mission. I salute and am grateful to the hundreds of OUR COMMON GROUNDVOICES who have met with us and offered their keen intelligence and body of knowledge to serve the Black nation. And, to our listeners, we are always appreciative of your support of our programming.

    Our final, and the 2022 and Season of OUR COMMON GROUND will premiere on January 8, 2022. We wish you a holiday season filled with the joy and magic of your faith and hope that you will be lifted by the spirit and richness of Kwanzaa.

    As always,  I’ll Be Listening for You

    Dr. Frances Luella Welsing was an American psychiatrist and prominent race theorist. She was a proponent of Black supremacist melanin theory. Her 1970 essay, The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism, offered her interpretation of what she described as the origins of white supremacy culture. In this 2009 episode of OUR COMMON GROUND, we talked with her once again about her profound significant theoretical and analytic research and writings on global white supremacy and how it manifests in America. Dr. Welsing first joined us in 1987.

    OPEN MIC NIGHT

    "A Broken Democracy"

    While the Republicans fight for a new Confederacy, just what price will Black Americans pay because the Democrats are not vested in Democracy?

    Will cars on the new roads built by the Biden Infrastructure Bill, pass by Black people still protesting voter suppression or another dead Black body at the hands of police? Who will challenge the severely partisan SCOTUS ?
