The Importance Of Language... in the spirit of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz and W.E.B. DuBois

Air date: 
Thu, 02/26/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
Think about what you say...
As people around the world have been honoring the sunrise of W.E.B. Dubois (February 23, 1868) and the transcendence of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (February 21, 1965); it seems of great importance to discuss the nature of language.  Both men have been highly misinterpreted (and neglected) over the years, without actually taking a keen study to what they were actually saying.

Daryl Davis, Klan-destine Relationships
Host Jimmy Tardy talks with Daryl Davis, world-class musician and owner of a closet full of Klan hoods and robes that were bequeathed to Daryl when their previous owners decided to renounce the Klan. Some of those previous owners include the former Imperial Wizard of the KKK (that's the national leader of the Klan for the rest of us...)
Daryl is an African-American man who grew up in Chicago and around the world as an, "emabssy brat" (his words). When he returned to the States, Daryl began to see racism all around him, and found himself the target of racist threats and violence. Instead of becoming afraid and turning away, Daryl decided to ask some Klan members, in person, "how can you hate me when you don't even know me?"

Watch Your Back!-- How the Back Pain Industry Is Costing Us More and Giving Us Less by Dr. Deyo

Program:

Short Description: 
Watch Your Back! by Dr. Richard Deyo

Over the past twenty years, treatment of back pain has become ever more expensive and intensive. Use of MRI scans, narcotic painkillers, injections, and invasive spine surgery have all grown by several hundred percent, yet annual surveys of people with back pain report steadily worse impairments.  Though it may seem counterintuitive, fewer medical interventions may produce better results with back pain. Expecting a probe, a pill, or a procedure to cure is usually unrealistic, yet entire industries promote the notion that someone else will "fix" you. Watch Your Back! exposes these flaws in the current approach to back pain, along with the profit motives and conflicts of interest behind many of them. Richard A.

Get in Trouble with Kelly Link

She has been hailed by Michael Chabon as “the most darkly playful voice in American fiction” and by Neil Gaiman as “a national treasure.” Now Kelly Link’s eagerly awaited new collection—her first for adult readers in a decade—proves indelibly that this bewitchingly original writer is among the finest we have.  Hurricanes, astronauts, evil twins, bootleggers, Ouija boards, iguanas, The Wizard of Oz, superheroes, the Pyramids . . . These are just some of the talismans of an imagination as capacious and as full of wonder as that of any writer today.
