HISTORY, WORDS AND ACTION MATTER

August 17, 2015

Business, Education, Feature, Opinion, Trends

Beenetworknews History, Words and Actions Matter segment is for those individuals who may or may not be aware of this nation’s complete  history, understand the power of words, or the actions powered by the intentional misuse of words.  Issues surrounding  the Confederacy, African-Americans and the Justice System,  the U.S. Constitution or Unjust Policies all contribute to the civility and tolerance we show toward one another.  Many forget that as a democracy Americans must stand united to defend against threats from outside and inside its borders.  In addition, they  fail to remember that prejudice, bigotry, sexism or intolerance from within will not only divided us but surely contribute to our demise as a nation.

NOTE:  Some of the words and video content in HWAM articles may be too explicit and offensive to some adults and children.  Please be advised!

In the mid 80’s I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing the civil rights leader Julian Bond.  I’ll always remember the dignified, intelligent and respectful manner in which he carried himself and treated others.  He was knowledgeable, charismatic and personable.  He encouraged journalist like myself to be truthful and dedicated to getting the facts right.  Bond believed in civil rights for all people.  An activist, politician and educator whom inspired generations of civil rights activist everywhere.    He will be greatly missed.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Dad Nominates Julian Bond at the 1968 Democratic Convention

Published on Dec 6, 2012

This is a short clip from the 1968 convention when my father nominated Julian Bond for Vice President from the floor of the Democratic Convention. It was a symbolic nomination, Julian Bond was too young to be Vice President, but it effectively refocused the televised convention back to the issues that brought people like Bond and my father and others to the national stage. The Wisconsin Delegation marched in support of the students and protestors who were being beaten in the streets.
