Rosa Parks is a Civil Rights icon. A quiet, unassuming woman who would commit her life to activism, and eventually change the course of American history.
In this episode, Billy leads the discussion around Ms. Parks' life, her legacy, and the lessons we can learn, as we navigated difficult waters today. Jesse and Billy discuss the unfortunate "shrink wrapping" of Rosa Parks' life.
They discuss strategy with activist, author Bill Fletcher Jr. Bill offers powerful insights on tactics for winning, plus the meaning and value of "intersectionality". The hosts, again, discuss the importance of narratives, and critique the unfortunate ethnic divisions that have become resurgent, recently. Nick Cannon's public comments about Jews, the terrible police violence against George Floyd, Tony Timpa, Jacob Blake and so many others. The bizarre resurgence of anti-semitic statements from black public figures.
Rosa Parks reminds us to remain vigilant. Do the work. Take the risk.
