Grenada. You’ve Heard Of It, right WORK
Further, there is a sentiment among some people that Grenadians will not be used as a medical testing ground. Amongst a population that is largely black, I have heard mutterings on buses, and in the street, about a historical distrust in the newly developed vaccines. Indeed, on a Duke University Research website, Cydney Livingston describes a litany of instances where black people have been used without consent or knowledge for medical research. It makes for a sobering read.
Grenada. You’ve heard of it, right
Watch live coverage as funeral services are held in Memphis, Tennessee, for Tyre Nichols, who died days after he was beaten by police during a traffic stop. Ben Crump, the attorney for Nichols' family, will make remarks and civil rights leader Al Sharpton will deliver the eulogy.
I received a message from the father of a marine in Lebanon. He told me, "In a world where we speak of human rights, there is a sad lack of acceptance of responsibility. My son has chosen the acceptance of responsibility for the privilege of living in this country. Certainly in this country one does not inherently have rights unless the responsibility for these rights is accepted." Dr. Kenneth Morrison said that while he was waiting to learn if his son was one of the dead. I was thrilled for him to learn today that his son Ross is alive and well and carrying on his duties in Lebanon.
These small, peaceful nations needed our help. Three of them don't have armies at all, and the others have very limited forces. The legitimacy of their request, plus my own concern for our citizens, dictated my decision. I believe our government has a responsibility to go to the aid of its citizens, if their right to life and liberty is threatened. The nightmare of our hostages in Iran must never be repeated.
ZOMORODI: In this clip from a 1961 interview, he's talking about one of the most influential people in his life, his mother, Alberta King. But most of us know little about her or have even heard of her.
And so I said, I'm going to be somebody who finds other hidden figures, other people who have intentionally been erased from our history. And I knew I was going to talk about Black women. And then I thought about the fact that my mother always spoke to me about the importance of mothers in every society. She was a lawyer. She advocated for women's rights, both in the U.S. as well as abroad.
And so I thought, OK, I'm going to talk about mothers because they're being overlooked. They're not being celebrated in the way that they deserve to be. I thought about the civil rights movement because we so often come back to it in our policy discussions, but we also speak about it from a pretty male perspective. It's a lot harder for us to name anyone else other than male leaders in the civil rights movement. And so I said, I'm going to play on that patriarchy. I knew strategically, if it had some more of these famous names, more people would walk away knowing three Black women's stories.
ZOMORODI: We've heard people in the past say that Martin Luther King Jr. got his oratory skills from his dad. But what do you think he got from his mom? Is there something - I don't know - when you when him in videos, when you see him giving speeches, what does it make you think about Alberta?
ZOMORODI: In a moment, the day Alberta King's worst fear came true, and another assassination we don't hear much about. On the show today, Anna Malaika Tubbs, author of "The Three Mothers: How The Mothers Of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, And James Baldwin Shaped A Nation." I'm Manoush Zomorodi, and you're listening to the TED Radio Hour from NPR. We'll be right back.
ZOMORODI: So on a before the break, we were talking about Alberta King, the mother of Martin Luther King Jr., and how she shaped our history in part by how she raised her son. But as the civil rights movement gained steam in the '60s, the situation got more and more dangerous for him, and she became really worried about his safety. And, of course, her worst nightmare did come true in 1968.
ZOMORODI: Alberta King lived until 1974, and I did not know how she died, Anna. And I've asked a lot of other people, did you know? And they said they'd never heard this story. Do you mind sharing it with us?
ZOMORODI: OK. So these stories about his mom, her demonstrations of putting her life on the line for her race - they clearly shape Malcolm Little, who becomes Malcolm X. But he's also growing up around a lot of violence - right? - and tragedy. And he believes - most people believe - that his father may have been killed by white supremacists as well.
ZOMORODI: But also, during that time, you write that the Little family was petitioning for Louise's release and that eventually, in 1963, they were successful. But she came home to a whole new world, right? The civil rights movement was in full swing, which her son had had a lot to do with. But as we know, tragedy was just around the corner.
ZOMORODI: It's the TED Radio Hour from NPR. I'm Manoush Zomorodi. And we're spending this episode with sociologist Anna Malaika Tubbs, who spent years researching three mothers who helped shape American history. Anna, so far, we've heard about Alberta King and Louise Little, the mothers of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. And now we're going to talk about Berdis Baldwin. She is the mother of the famous poet, playwright, novelist James Baldwin, but also an artistic soul herself. Tell us about Berdis, where she was born and her early life.
TUBBS: Yeah. Long before their sons were thoughts in their minds, they were doing the work that their sons became famous for. But also, what that means for all the women and mothers who are being forgotten and erased - and this book is just an example of three who we should have known all along, and they are also reminders for us of who we are erasing right now.
ZOMORODI: So as a sociologist, how do you think of these stories in context of the last few years here in the United States and the sort of real race reckoning that once again we are going through, and I suppose how we talk about black mothers right now?

Almost every beach on the island of Carriacou is beautiful. Most tourists flock to Paradise Beach or Sandy Island, but the 3 km long stretch of sand right in front of the main settlement of Hillsborough is pure perfection.
The Alhambra and Generalife Small Group Guided Tour is about 3 hours long, which feels like the exact right amount of time to see what you need to see, and learn some of the history, without being overkill. It includes skip-the-line entrance, which makes things much more convenient than trying arrange it all yourself. It gets great reviews.
TOTALLY helps in allaying the tension! Alhambra is at the top of my bucket list and I do so want to see it in detail and calmly, so your suggestions are very welcome. I will ensure we reach the gate by 7.30am. That should be good enough right?We are in Granada for 2 nights, in a lovely apartment. Could you suggest any bars/restaurants to eat lunch/dinner/lounge at? We love experiencing local atmosphere and food :)
Thank you so much for the information! We will be driving from Ronda in the morning, right at the end of August and so want to allow plenty of time for traffic. If I book the afternoon slot, and choose say 3:00pm for the Nasrid Palace, does that mean we should have an hour to walk through the other areas, or will we need to jump in the line much earlier to make the 3:00pm slot? Also, will parking be a nightmare at that time of day?
