1. A MODERN LYNCHING

    05:40

    from Ioannes Palomaria / Added

    For his 8th grade English class, Ioannes needed to do a video based on things discussed on the Speak Truth To Power website about Human Rights. The Defender he chose was Van Jones. He decided he wanted to do it on police brutality and comparing it to another dark time in American history, lynching. After listening to several songs that dealt with the subject matter, he chose to use two songs that he felt best illustrate his feelings. They are STRANGE FRUIT by Billie Holiday and BE FREE by J. Cole. He did not obtain the rights to these songs but hopes the fair use rules will apply to his school project. He placed a Viewer Discretion Advised card at the opening to warn anyone who might be offended by the material. He hopes it will open up dialogue and encourage people to think.

        Johann Hari is a British journalist who has written for the New York Times, the LA Times, the Guardian, Le Monde, Slate, the New Republic and The Nation amongst others. He was a columnist on the Independent for nine years and was twice named Newspaper Journalist of the Year by Amnesty International UK. He has also been named Cultural Commentator of the Year by the Editorial Intelligence awards and Gay Journalist of the Year by Stonewall. Chasing the Scream: the first and last days of the War on Drugs is Johann Hari’s first book. He has spent three years researching and writing the book, travelling to 9 countries and interviewing countless people whose lives have been transformed by the war on drugs. It is 100 years since drugs were made illegal and Hari’s book will challenge and change how you think about the most controversial question of our time. The Guardian called it a ‘powerful contribution to an urgent debate’ and The Times said it is ‘Thoughtful, thorough and questing, and full of fresh and genuine reportage about aspects of the drug economy.’
