Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story
This book is an account of a few years that changed the life of a Southern community, told from the point of view of one of the participants. Although it attempts to interpret what happened it does not purport to be a detailed survey of the historical and sociological aspects of the Montgomery story. .
This is not a drama with only one actor. More precisely it is the chronicle of 50,000 Blacks who took to heart the principles of nonviolence, who learned to fight for their rights with the weapon of love, and who, in the process, acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. It is the story of Negro leaders of many faiths and divided allegiances, who came together in the bond of a cause they knew was right. And of the Negro followers, many of them beyond middle age, who walked to work and home again as much as 12 miles a day for over a year rather than submit to the discourtesies and humiliation of segregated buses. .
There is also another side to the picture: it is the white community of Montgomery, long led or intimidated by a few extremists, that finally turned in disgust on the perpetrators of crime in the name of segregation. The change should not be exaggerated…Yet by the end of the bus struggle it was clear that the vast majority of Montgomery whites preferred peace and law to the excesses performed in its name. And even though the many saw segregation as right because it was the tradition, there were always the courageous few who saw the injustice and fought against it side by side with Blacks.

2. Friday, 9:00am (PT); 12Noon (ET), We Will Not Be Erased: Ongoing Nakba (NEW)
$0 – $25
Join Mohammad El-Kurd, Majd Kayyal, Sandra Tamari, and Sumaya Awad as they unpack and the history and ongoing reality of the Nakba.
Israel’s founding in 1948 was a result of premeditated ethnic cleansing campaigns across historic Palestine with the goal of displacing and dispossessing the indigenous Palestinian population of their land. The violence of the 1948 Nakba didn’t stop. In fact, successive Israeli governments, with the financial and political backing of the US, have given Israel the green light to expand and entrench its colonial project.
Colonialism is alive and well in the 21st century. The Nakba is not a thing of the past, but an ongoing reality.

3. Friday, 12Noon, The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882
the video in the Discussion tab here and on the Videos tab of our page on Friday at 12pm. (Facebook page)
Signed into law on May 6, 1882, the Chinese Exclusion Act was one of many discriminatory laws enacted by the U.S. government, and banned immigration from China to the U.S. An emblem of the racist period known as the “Yellow Peril,” the law was supported by many prominent San Francisco business leaders. Levi Strauss later condemned the Act, but its passage had long-lasting impacts on the early Chinese community in the U.S. In this talk, take a deeper look at an often-overlooked story with educator Sharon Lee-Nakayama, who will chart the chronology of the Exclusion Acts, the history behind them, and their effects on the early Chinese community in the United States.
This talk is presented in partnership with the San Francisco Chinese Historical Society.
Host: Comtemporary Jewish Museum

California Community Colleges particularly in urban area face major threats of mass layoffs, destruction of classes and corporate take-overs in California using the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges ACCJC. This panel will discuss the issues facing faculty, students and what needs to be done.
Our community college system is being decimated in San Francisco and Peralta Community College District and threatened throughout the state despite a state $15 billion surplus. In CCSF, classes and whole departments face liquidation including Ethnic Studies, Music, Vocational training, Nursing and LBGTQ.
This panel will look at the attacks on what is going on, and how we can fight privatization and union busting including the Lumina supported funding formula legislation that punishes working class students and com- munity colleges. This was passed by a Democratic controlled legislature & Democratic governor.
These attacks are also taking place throughout the country as well and are part and parcel of systemic racism hitting Blacks, Latinos, Asians, and all working class and poor students who deserve the right to go to college.

As we approach the anniversary of the Nakba, the colonization of Palestine and forced expulsion of Palestinians continues. This is apparent everywhere in occupied territories, its most clear in the heart of Jerusalem, Palestine’s capital: in a town called Sheikh Jarrah, where Palestinian families are being expelled from their homes by the Israeli regime and its colonial settlers.
This past week, Palestinians in Jerusalem have experienced some of the worst violence in recent history. On the last Friday of Ramadan, Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa mosque and fired tear gas and live ammunition at the worshipers. And in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in east Jerusalem, Palestinians continue to resist violent and illegal attempts to forcibly expel them from their homes. All of this is funded by US tax dollars.

This Week from the Big Table Podcast
By Big Table
May 10, 2021 (lithub.com)
Big Table is a half-hour arts program/podcast, an exploration into art and culture as told through interviews with authors and artists, conducted and curated by writer, editor, and publisher J.C. Gabel and a small cast of contributors.
On this week’s episode, professor and critic Eddie Glaude, Jr. discusses his latest book Begin Again (Crown), an intellectual look at James Baldwin’s most potent political writing from The Fire Next Time to No Name in the Street.
From the episode:
Eddie Glaude, Jr. No Name in the Street is the first book written after Martin Luther King’s assassination. He did a few journalistic pieces. He did the conversation with Margaret Mead and with Nikki Giovanni. But this is the book that emerged out of the collapse. So he collapses in ’69 as a result of a failed relationship, as well as the kind of betrayal that King’s murder represented. He tried to find something at the level of form and at the level of content to respond to what he had experienced and what he was seeing. So as I was teaching Baldwin, trying to get my students to see the evolution of his thinking, this emerged that it’s not a declensions story. That’s what the older scholarship was suggesting, right?
That Baldwin’s work was after 1963, as James Campbell would say, his voice broke, that he became bitter and angry and too polemical and been kind of seduced by black power or the desire to remain the center of literary attention and the like had all compromised his art or its aesthetics. I just saw something very different. What does it mean to write in a moment where the nation has fundamentally turned its back on the promise of the civil rights movement? What does it mean to write in after time of this very compressed period as the nation not only elects Richard Nixon, but eventually elects Ronald Reagan for someone for whom for many activists someone as bad as as as George Wallace.
A co-production between Hat & Beard, Dublab, and Gold-Diggers in Los Angeles, Big Table is dedicated to the interviewing style and enduring memory of Studs Terkel, the Chicago oral historian, actor, activist, TV pioneer, and long-time radio host and author. You can learn more about Studs’ work here. Big Table is the first digital initiative of Invisible Republic, a nonprofit arts organization working in coordination with Future Roots, Inc.
Eddie S. Glaude Jr. is the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor at Princeton University and author of Democracy in Black.
Empire Files [For best viewing experience, use headphones, external speakers or TV speakers.] Donations, DVDs, digital download, soundtrack, Arabic/Spanish subtitles & more at https://gazafightsforfreedom.com // SUPPORT our work at https://www.patreon.com/empirefiles This debut feature film by journalist Abby Martin began while reporting in Palestine, where she was denied entry into Gaza by the Israeli government on the accusation she was a “propagandist.” So Abby connected with a team of journalists in Gaza to produce the film through the blockaded border. It is a documentary about the historic Great March Of Return protests, which occurred every week from March 2018 until December 2019, but covers so much more. It tells the story of Gaza past and present, showing rare archival footage that explains the history never acknowledged by mass media. You hear from victims of the ongoing massacre, including journalists, medics and the family of internationally-acclaimed paramedic, Razan al-Najjar. At its core, ‘Gaza Fights For Freedom’ is a thorough indictment of the Israeli military for war crimes with exclusive documentary evidence and a stunning cinematic portrayal of Palestinians’ heroic resistance. * Directed, Written & Narrated by Abby Martin Written & Produced by Mike Prysner Lead Editor: Taylor Gill Original Score: Anahedron (John Prysner) Camera Operators: Asmaa Attia Hamad & Moaz Mousa Field Producers: Abdulkareem Ajjour & Yousef Abd Al-Rahman Ghaben Research Assistant: Tara Stone Motion Graphics: Ali Reza Yazdanian Translations: Nour Elborno, Sara Abusheikh, Omar Abusheikh Sound Editor & Re-Recording Mixer: Ben Huff COPYRIGHT 2019 – NO UNAUTHORIZED USE Media inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
