This dialogue is pure joy with my dear brother @esglaude ! Watch:

Please read and share my conversation with @chaunceydevega  via @Salon  on Trump's "law and order," George Floyd's martyrdom, the question of if we are in a paradigm shift as a country and more.

Today is a reminder to continue fighting for the freedom of all people in this country and abroad.⁣ ⁣ Stay tuned for new episodes on @thetightropepod  with @ProfTriciaRose  and some very exciting guests!⁣ ⁣ #IndependenceDay  #July4

Such a great conversation on @MSNBC  with my dear brother @esglaude  about his new book, "Begin Again: James Baldwin America And Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own". Must watch: #jamesbaldwin 

We have to ensure that people have a right to express themselves no matter how much one may disagree with them -- the test of a democracy. Full conversation here:

Blessed and honored to work with my dear brother and genius Arturo O'Farill on this artistic and political jazz project. The Four Questions are those of the great, W. E. B. Du Bois in sonic and musical form. LISTEN:

Black Lives Matter and the fight against the US empire are one and the same. Read more here:

We are witnessing a rebellion. It’s beautiful to see the qty of protests and the scope and breadth of all colors, all genders, all sexual orientations, all ethnicities and all religious identities in the USA.

Beautiful to see people of all colors coming together, but we have a system unable to respond. Looting is wrong and murder is wrong, but their legalized forms are wrong too. Look at the wickedness in high places first, then at the least of these. #watch :

I endorse Brother@BernieSanders  because he is a long-distance runner with integrity in the struggle for justice for over 50 years.

Today, just telling the truth and having integrity is revolutionary, subversive, and counter-cultural.

In 2011, I was arrested for non-violent civil disobedience when protesting Michel Bloomberg's "stop and frisk" policy -- an NYPD practice that disproportionately and unjustly targeted and terrorized Black and Brown young people. #watch  #stopandfrisk
