6/23 Those Who Know Don’t Say: the Black Freedom Movement & the Carceral State w/ Garrett Felber

June 23, 2020

Sam hosts Garrett Felber, professor of history at the University of Mississippi, to discuss his new book, Those Who Know Don’t Say: The Nation of Islam, the Black Freedom Movement, and the Carceral State. Sam and Felber discuss the organizing tactics used by black nationalists from within the carceral state and the Nation of Islam. Felber’s book spotlights the local organizers on the ground and how such efforts differed from the national politics of black civil rights. Sam and Felber compare and contrast the 1960s civil rights movement to contemporary BLM actions, the multiracial composition of today’s protests, and self-reporting and recording of police behavior. The two conclude their conversation assessing the long fight against “police reform.” 

And in the Fun Half: Trump’s triple interview Monday shows his campaign’s desperation, the Weinstein Brothers are who we thought they were, cultural Marxism returns to Fox & Friends, rising cases in across the sun belt, AOC’s implied endorsement of Sam, the Peterson foundation, plus your calls and IMs!
