4.7.2023 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: VP Harris in Nashville, TN Legislature Expels Rep Jones & Pearson, 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop
Vice President Kamala Harris is in Tennessee following the unprecedented expulsion of two of Tennessee's youngest black lawmakers, Nashville Representative Justin Jones and Memphis Representative Justin Pearson, after they participated in a peaceful protest on the house floor. We will discuss what she had to say and how this has renewed the white house push to ban assault weapons in the US.
After Tennessee's historic and baseless expulsion of Jones and Pearson, more democrats and constituents are mobilizing. We will speak with Reverend William Barbara, Tennessee former county commissioner Tami Sawyer, Council member Joy Styles, and Reverend Stephen Green about ensuring we can protect our democracy.
Hip-hop is turning 50 this year. Chuck D and Daddy O of Public Enemy are planning a new movement to help cure some of the systemic ills of the community and help artists succeed on their terms. They'll stop by to explain.
