Tonight on New Abolitionists Radio with Max Parthas & Scotty T Reid. http://www.blacktalkradionetwork.com/newabolitionistsradio/
Today is the July 5th, 2017 broadcast of New Abolitionists Radio. We are less than 2 months away from the MILLIONS FOR PRISONERS HUMAN RIGHTS MARCH ON WASHINGTON, DC August 19th.
Yesterday, people of all stripes celebrated America’s emancipation from the British crown. Ironic considering that thanks to the 13TH amendment, convict leasing, and modern mass incarceration, Black America has never seen any real freedom from oppression and slavery yet.
Anyway, Time is growing short and there is much work to do.
On this day in History, 1950 U.S. suffers the first fatality in the Korean War. Near Sojong, South Korea, Private Kenneth Shadrick, a 19-year-old infantryman from Skin Fork, West Virginia, became the first American reported killed in the Korean War.
Also, this weekend marks the 100th anniversary of one of the most brutal and shameful episodes of mass violence in American history. Dubbed the East St. Louis “race riot,” the events of July 2 and 3, 1917, tore East St. Louis apart and shocked the nation. The violence was largely one-sided, with mobs of armed whites burning hundreds of black homes and beating, lynching and shooting black residents. Most historians estimate that more than 100 people died.
