Café Talk: For what cause would you risk your life?
1st Hour– This Day In History and Top News
Joining me in studio was Mr. Thomas M. Armstrong, Civil Rights Veteran, speaker, and co-author of the book, “Autobiography of a Freedom Rider: My Life as a Foot Solder for Civil Rights”.
The “This Day In History” segment was brief. Just these three…
*1843 – The typewriter was patented by Charles Thurber.
*1920 – Eight days after the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, it went into effect giving women the right to vote.
An honorable mention—August 26th is Women’s Equality Day, the annual commemoration of the Nineteenth Amendment. A “call to action” from the AAUW (American Association of University Women) was announced as follows: Contact your members of Congress to ask for their support of legislation that would make college more affordable for all students and help millions of borrowers across the country pay off their student debt. My call to action: support the AAUW. For audio, go to www.marilynscafesociety.com.
Top News: North Korea and Hurricane Harvey
In fact, Desiree Clay, author of the book, “Beautiful Like a Flower” and EVP of Hip Hop Sisters checked in “safe” from Hurricane Harvey and updated listeners on current situation in the part of Texas near her area. Let’s keep her and all others in harms way in our prayers and make $10.00 donation text to Harvey at 90999 or to give more, go to American Red Cross.
The Cafe Talk segment included Mr. Thomas M Armstrong. I was so thrilled to finally meet him and honored to be in his presence. He and I along with listeners from social media shared response to the question—For what cause would you risk your life? Many said family which is a given. The focus of the question was “what cause”. In specific response to the question, Mr. Armstrong talked about his experience as a Civil Rights veteran and work with Freedom Riders. He and I also chatted about the civil rights and advocacy work of the late Dick Gregory; thoughts on Affirmative Action; and more.
