In this episode, a continuation of serving up content to help with these trying times such as documentaries you should watch: 

·        "Before the West Coast: A Sports Civil Rights Story" (released 2016) -  about the integration of Louisiana's all-white high school football league in 1967 by St. Augustine (New Orleans). Website: http://beforethewestcoast.com/

·        "Chisholm '72: Unbought & Unbossed" (released 2004) -  about Shirley's Chisholm's 1972 presidential bid. She was the first woman and the first African American to run for the nomination of a major party for President of the United States. In 1968, she was the first black woman to be elected to the United States Congress. 

·        "John L. Waller: Striving For Equality" (released in 2010) – about John Lewis Waller, born in the mid 1800's, who became a prominent lawyer, politician, journalist, publisher, and more. In 1888, Waller also became the first black man in the electoral college.

Also, look for a review of the film "Black and Blue" starring Naomie Harris and Tyrese and in the Interview with a Celebrity segment, hear how actress Daphne Maxwell Reid proudly protested. You may be surprised about the former Aunt Viv’s past. 

Finally, the sounds of New Orleans-based singer Deepa Soul will have you dancing in agreement. Buy her music at https://www.deepasoullive.com/.
