October 27, 2017 – Hy Thurman & The Young Patriots
The Young Patriots were the Appalachian version of the Black Panther Party. One of its leading members was Hy Thurman, who was also part of the original Rainbow Coalition in Chicago between the Patriots, Panthers and the Young Lords. Thurman joined Baynard Woods and me for our Democracy in Crisis podcast that springs from Baynard’s alt-weekly column of the same name. Enjoy this conversation, which focuses on organizing in white working class communities for economic and social justice and against racism. We cover the history and reality of it — from 1967 to the world we confront now, 50 years later.
We hosted the newest edition of Democracy in Crisis! I talked with co-host Baynard Woods about the the now present specter of nuclear war and Trumps latest comments on the situation with North Korea. Democracy in Crisis is produced by Calvin Perry.
City Paper Senior Editor Baynard Woods joins us to discuss this week’s issue including a piece on Baltimore’s curfew laws written by students from Morgan State University’s School of Global Journalism and Communication; and the inauguration speech of Baltimore’s new States Attorney Marilyn Mosby.
This week, we begin a weekly look at the Baltimore City Paper. We’re joined by the City Paper’s Senior Editor Baynard Woods for an update on what’s in this week’s issue. Please visit the Citypaper.com for more information.
