The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, September 5th, 2023, from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern Time, entitled, “Hate, Racial Violence, Representation, and Reparations”, will be live with Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine, Esq. and Daryl Jones, Esq. and guests Damario Solomon Simmons, The Hon. Angela “Angie” Nixon, and Congresswoman Corrine Brown. This week’s show will look at the connections between the rise in hate crimes, including the Jacksonville shooting, and the ongoing fight for justice for the victims of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. We are honored to have three amazing guests to join us for the complete hour to explore these topics, including the ongoing fight to restore the historic Black voting district in northern Florida.
On August 15th, in a major development, the Oklahoma Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal of the dismissal of a case brought by survivors of the horrific Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. We will be joined by Damario Solomon Simmons, the lead attorney in this case, to hear an update on this fight. Read more in this August 15th article by Fox25 titled “Oklahoma Supreme Court agrees to review 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre survivors’ appeal”.
On August 28th, the article “‘This is ridiculous:’ Hate crimes at all-time high, SPLC says” published by Yahoo! News stated that there has been a significant increase in the number of hate crimes reported, and oddly a significant decrease in the number of law enforcement entities, particularly in Florida, reporting hate crimes. This article resonates especially in Florida after the tragic racist murders in Jacksonville on August 26th. Despite the outcry by the public of this vicious hate crime, neo-Nazi groups seized upon these murders as an opportunity to march in Orlando spewing racist hate.
