Black History Month: William Trotter

Last night, PBS premiered the documentary Birth of a Movement, based on the book The Birth of a Movement: How Birth of a Nation Ignited the Battle for Civil Rights, by Dick Lehr.  Both chronicle the very public battle between activist and newspaper editor (The Boston Guardian)  William Monroe Trotter, and film pioneer D.W. Griffith (The Birth of a Nation). Trotter came from a well-to-do family, his father James Trotter being the first Black man to earn lieutenant rank in the 55th Regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, during the Civil War.  James later became the first Black man in Boston employed with the U.S. Postal Service.  And appointed as Recorder of Deeds for Washington, D.C. by President Grover Cleveland.  Trotter’s mother Virginia Isaacs, was the great granddaughter of Elizabeth Hemings, mother of Sally Hemings (Monticello, Thomas Jefferson). William Trotter grew up in the predominantly white area of Hyde Park, where he graduated high school and went on to attend Harvard University, becoming the first Black man to graduate Phi Beta Kappa at the school. In 1895 he graduated with his bachelor’s – magna cum laude, and in 1896 with his master’s degree. With fellow Harvard intellectual W.E.B. Du Bois, Trotter founded The Niagara Movement, precursor to the NAACP […]

What He’s Done So Far

The President has wasted no time signing executive orders.  Get more details from the Newshour at pbs.org including Donald Trump’s Contract with the American Voter *ACA repeal, funding waiver, states control of healthcare and insurance marketplaces Regulation freeze (any that have not been approved) Abortion Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Hiring freeze on federal government jobs Approval for Dakota Access pipeline (Standing Rock) Approval for Keystone Oil pipeline Push environmental reviews for priority infrastructure Made in America steel pipelines Review manufacturing regulations Aggressive deportations and block funding to sanctuary cities Build that wall *Trump’s repeal of the ACA includes returning control of Medicaid, to state governments.  Meaning the federal government will no longer assist with cost, instead issuing block amount funding for states to manage themselves.  This could make it harder for those who depend on Medicaid to get the care they need.

The Day After – Now What?

The day after the election (most of) the world woke up stunned by the victory of Trump.  And the U.S. went about life in a dazed silence.  As we gradually began to shake it off, the energy went from shock to fear, bemusement, and anger. Actually… the anger had been brewing awhile for a lot of us.  But the billionaire’s victory was a gut punch to the rest of America. Protests sprang up throughout the country and the world, and seemed to culminate with the inaugural festivities.  Some boycotted watching the ceremony on television, others went to join in protest with likeminded, on the streets of D.C.   The day after inauguration the women’s march,  spilled out and off it’s intended route and took over the city’s streets.  A metaphor perhaps, of the intersecting issues that birthed November 9th.  And while it was an impressive showing… Now what? See the truth is, too many folks went back home, satisfied with riding the high of that weekend.  And there’s enough of them satisfied with just showing up, to stagnate movement for the rest.  So what will YOU do to keep things moving…  Why not start by checking your own backyard. What’s your street look like?  Who’s driving up your property taxes and why? […]

While You Were Sleeping…

One thing I would like to personally encourage during this new administration, is for everyone to start watching/streaming CSPAN.  This channel is not only informative, but gives us access to elected officials in a way most of us would never have the chance to see.  It allows us to get a sense of WHO “represents” us, beyond the campaign handshakes and commercials.  Who shows up for legislation that is important to us and for us – as a community, and as a nation. –     What does this mean?  It means the Senate majority voted to repeal the taxpayer funded portion of the ACA, which includes mandatory coverage.  Young adults covered under their parents’ plan, and preexisting conditions are not included in this repeal.
