White People in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter: Dara Silverman and Chris Crass on The Laura Flanders Show

A social justice group that invites white people to fight racism is spreading like wildfire in the US. From 12 to 150 chapters in two years. Clearly a whole lot of white people are interested in fighting systemic injustice. But how? This week's guests have dedicated their lives to grappling with that question, for the sake of making real change. They are both organizers, educators, and feminist anti-racist activists. Dara Silverman is the former Executive Director of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice and is currently the National Coordinator for SURJ: Showing Up for Racial Justice, a network with over 100 chapters and affiliates across the United States moving white people into action for racial justice. Chris Crass is the former co-coordinator of Catalyst Project, an antiracist training organization in the San Francisco Bay Area. And the author of two books, Towards Collective Liberation: Anti-Racist Organizing, Feminist Praxis, and Movement Building Strategy and Towards the “Other America”: Anti-Racist Resources for White People Action for Black Lives Matter

 Joseph Matthews reading an excerpt from Everyone Has Their Reasons


"A tragic, gripping Orwellian tale of an orphan turned assassin in pre-World War II Paris. Based on the true story of the Jewish teen Hitler blamed for Kristallnacht, it's a wild ride through the underside of Europe as the storm clouds of the Holocaust gather.  Not to be missed!”
—Terry Bisson, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of Fire on the Mountain

Vikki Law on Democracy Now! talking about the case of Cherelle Baldwin


Update: Later on Thursday, after this segment aired, a 12-member jury found Cherelle Baldwin not guilty of murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend, allowing her to go free after nearly three years behind bars. According to the Huffington Post, Baldwin collapsed to the floor in tears as the verdict was announced, crying, “My baby will have his mommy back.”

Jurors in Connecticut are deliberating the fate of Cherelle Baldwin, a 24-year-old mother accused of killing her alleged abuser. Baldwin is charged with the 2013 killing of her ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey Brown, who Baldwin alleges had stalked and abused her. According to court documents, Brown had repeatedly threatened Baldwin, took her credit cards and money, and assaulted her during visits to see their son, who lived with Baldwin. Baldwin eventually attained a court order barring threats, harassment and assaults during visits, but just before Brown died, he sent Baldwin a series of threatening text messages...

Check out S. Brenner, M. Dante and Stephen Jay Shwartz reading excerpts from Jewish Noir

 

October 15th, 2015: Co-sponsored by Litquake at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco: Writers R.S. Brenner, M. Dante, and Stephen Jay Schwartz read from a new anthology on Jewish Noir, followed by a discussion on crime and Jewish fiction.

"A short story is the perfect medium for busy people, and Jewish Noir, heralded as the first book of its kind, presents a month’s worth of short stories to delight any reader of the genre. Editor Kenneth Wishnia sums up the lure: “[ . . . ] a majority of the world’s Christians are taught that if you follow the right path, everything will turn out well for you in the end. In Judaism, you can follow the right path and still get screwed (just ask Job). That’s noir.”"—New Pages
