Deanna Easley rejoins Heaton to talk about welfare: when it works, when it traps, and her experiences on it. Plus, Heaton explains a Biden vs. Trump election through ostrich racing, and producer Jennings comes on with timely feedback.
Isis Brantley is a rebel with a cause. She has been arrested twice, taken to court and found guilty of her crimes against the state. She has stood before the highest court in Texas as a defendant and two years later, found herself before the federal courts as a plaintiff. She is considered a Civil Rights icon and a fierce supporter of bootstrapping young women out of poverty through entrepreneurial means. What Miss Isis is not is a violent criminal. She is not a drug lord - she is actually a vegan- and she is not a terrorist, a spy, or hacker. So in 1997, when seven Dallas officers kicked in her salon door, handcuffed her in front of her clients, and threw her in jail, she initially thought it was a joke. Her crime? Braiding hair without a cosmetology license.Links: blackinthedaypodcast.comnaturallyisis.comInstagram: @blackinthedaypod@naturallyisisemail: firstname.lastname@example.orgMusic: Blue Dot Sessions - The ZeppelinBlue Dot Sessions - HeliotropeLife as We Make It by Olive MusiqueSource: http://www.naturallyisis.com/index.html https://www.huffpost.com/entry/hairbraiding-license_b_4086368 http://braidingfreedom.com/braiding-initiative/supporters/isis-brantley/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/instituteforjustice/2015/01/29/hair-braiding-and-occupational-licensing/#4a606b185dbd http://www.scribd.com/doc/172538713/Brantley-v-Kuntz-File-Stamped-Full-Complaint-pdf
Black in the Day is a brand new podcast all about the history of black people around the world presented in a way that you haven’t heard before. This is is a movement to uncover secret and forgotten histories of black culture- referencing not only black Americans but Africans, black Spaniards, aborigines and really any people with more than a drop of melanin. We will uncover ideas, people, events, inventions. Please join me, Deanna Easley for Black in the Day every week.
