Common Good Politics - Candidate for Common Good Keith Davenport of Kansas

May 24, 2022

Doug Pagitt and Robb Ryerse talk primaries and runoffs before being joined by Keith Davenport, a Candidate for Common Good from Kansas. He talks about the disastrous Brownback Plan that slashed taxes, gutted government programs, and left working-class Kansans struggling.

"We need a state government that understands our everyday needs - affordable childcare, functioning roads, safe and excellent schools, and good-paying jobs. That’s why I am running for Kansas House District 43. It’s for our common good."

Andre Henry on Hope - And Hard Pills to Swallow - About Fighting for Black Lives

Andre Henry on Hope - And Hard Pills to Swallow - About Fighting for Black Lives

April 13, 2022

Doug Pagitt and Dan Deitrich sit down with activist, artist and author Andre Henry to talk about his new book, All the White Friends I Couldn't Keep: Hope - and Hard Pills to Swallow - About Fighting for Black Lives.

 

You can pick up the book - and a Break Up With White Jesus coffee mug - at AndreHenry.co

 

When the rallying cry “Black Lives Matter” was heard across the world in 2013, Andre Henry was one of the millions for whom the movement caused a political awakening and a rupture in some of his closest relationships with white people. As he began using his artistic gifts to share his experiences and perspective, Henry was aggrieved to discover that many white Americans—people he called friends and family—were more interested in debating whether racism existed or whether Henry was being polite enough in the way he used his voice.

In this personal and thought-provoking book, Henry explores how the historical divides between Black people and non-Black people are expressed through our most mundane interactions, and why this struggle won’t be resolved through civil discourse, diversity hires, interracial relationships, or education. What we need is a revolution, one that moves beyond symbolic progress to disrupt systems of racial violence and inequality in tangible, creative ways.
