Thursday, June 23rd 8:00PM Eastern / 5:00PM Pacific The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 6th study session on Catherine Pelonero’s 2017 publication, Absolute Madness:…
In every sense this episode is going to be a master class on the how, what, who, when, why, and where of contemporary constitutional slavery.
On 6/15/2022 The ACLU National releases the full 170-page bombshell report titled: Captive Labor Exploitation of Incarcerated Workers.
“Though this report centers on the gratuitously harsh conditions of contemporary prison labor, it is embedded in larger conversations about racism, sexism, the U.S. criminal legal system, the 13th Amendment, and the ultimate morality of this country’s vast network of prisons, jails, and detention facilities.”
Yusuf and Max have been digging through the report and we’ll pull out some major highlights.
It’s our last broadcast before we hit the road on our way to NC and VT. On 6/17/22 Max will be the Plenary Speaker at the Southern Appalachian Yearly Meeting and Association of the Religious Society of Friends. Also known as the Quakers. After a dozen years of working with the Quakers, Community Max is hoping to see them rededicate themselves as traditional and present allies of the US slavery abolitionist movement. Then, from June 18th through 21st, the abolitionist crew is rolling into the grand-daddy of all exception clauses, Vermont, for Juneteenth events. Including Curtis Davis, Tribal Raine, Max Parthas, Yusuf Hassan, and more! We’ll have Spoken Word, a live panel discussion, meet and greet, and will broadcast S3-E23 of Abolition Today LIVE FROM VERMONT!
We’ve got it all in S3-E22. The facts, the momentum, the history, the music, the truth, and the voices of the ancestors were brought back to life for a new generation. You may choose to look the other way, but after today, you can never again say that you did not know.
