BTR News: Mumia Campaign Updates & The Sexual Trauma of Black Males



On tonight’s broadcast, we will be joined by Sophia of the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home in NYC and Dr. Tommy J Curry to discuss the flip side of the sexual harassment conversation.

There are two events happening this week in connection with political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, a Black Panther victim of COINTELPRO and other abuses of the state. Sophia of the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home in NYC will share information about the event “Teach-In for Mumia: Have Black Lives Ever Mattered?” which is going down on Dec 8, 2017, at Church of the Advocate, 1801 W Diamond St, Philadelphia. The second event will be also in Philly on Dec 9, 2017, and will be a march and rally in support of Mumia Abu Jamal. There will also be a forum on “mass incarceration”.

As the nation continues to focus on the workplace sexual harassment of mostly privileged white women by the sexual misdeeds and criminality of the most powerful white men, no one seems to want to discuss the sexual misdeeds against men and particularly Black men in the workplace and in the schools. Some people believe that you men cannot be raped, sexually harassed or molested by women but the facts say otherwise. Is the conversation on sexual assault addressing all sexual assault or is it a political movement only interested in targeting “patriarchy”? Dr. Tommy J Curry, author of The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and the Dilemmas of Black Manhood, will help us make sense of this.

Join us for this conversation and some of the news of the day!
