If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.

Tonight on New ABolitionists Radio we have another mountain of facts and stories coming straight from the front lines of the slave trade here in the USA. We’ll share audio of a real live slave auction- then we’ll tell you all about the latest round of slave state, extrajudicial murders of blacks in the custody of law enforcement, and this week its the sisters under the gun. Literally. We have news about crooked slave catchers (cops), and drug smuggling CIA agent, caught up by border patrolling militia men , and County Prosecutors who think its okay to gun down black folks.
We’ll get an update from the 2015 National Week of Action Against Incarcerating Youth (NWAAIY), May 17 to May 23, 2015, and as always we will have our regular features of Ferguson is America, our rider of the 21st Century Underground Railroad, and of course our Abolitionist in Profile.
Ferguson is America- tonight we cover Connecticut is Ferguson.
Our Exoneration Profile is Santae Tribble, who served 28 years before he found his way out on the 21st Century Underground Railroad.
Our Abolitionist in profile is William Whipper, a Black businessman and abolitionist, born February 22, 1804, died March 9, 1876.
All of that tonight on New Abolitionists Radio.
