2. Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence and 3. Sydni Davenport talk about the history of the Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863.  Our guests share when they first encountered Juneteenth and when they found out its meaning.  Sydni Davenport shares how her grandmother Evangelist Marteal Perry hosted the first Juneteenth in Sonoma County after moving from Texas and settling on a piece of land in Somoma County. Sydni will play a white slave owner’s daughter in the play Unschackled, produced by Dr. Jacqueline Lawerence, who also stars in the production presented at the Juneteenth Celebration in Santa Rosa at the Martin Luther King, jr, Park this Saturday at 10 am.

About our Guest:  Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence was born and raised in Santa Rosa, California, the third of five children to Lamon and Sarah Lawrence. She attended Tuskegee University in Alabama and graduated in 1983 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and later earned her Masters in Theology and Doctorate in Christian Counseling from Sacramento Theological Seminary and Bible College.Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence is an author, playwright, and Founder and CEO of Legacy Showcases, featuring Heiress Choral Group, The Underground Railroad Pop Up Museum, and a variety of black history productions in honor of African Slaves.

About our Guest:  Sydni Davenport was born and raised in Sonoma county and her grandmother Evangelist Marteal Perry settled in Sonoma County after WWII and started hosting the first Juneteenth in Sonoma County at her homestead in 1953, having enjoyed the annual gathering from her Texas home town and wanting to recreate the experience for Black Americans in Sonoma County, of which at the time were only a few in number.  In 1970 Sydni’s family decided to move the event to the park.  Since Sydni’s  father was white she was chossen to act as the white slave owner’s wife in the play Unshackled.

1. Jackee Stang , Vice-President of Programming, High Times Media

 —-

1. Jackee Stang from her vantage point at High Times Media as Vice-President of Programming discusses how cannabis is accepted in California and the nation, now that it has been made legal to regulate both as medicine and as products made available to anyone over the age of 21.  High Times Media produced the Cannabis Cup in Santa Rosa this past weekend, which was only the second event in the nation to be licensed to sell cannabis products to anyone over the age of 21. After four decades of the magazine’s frontline reporting during the Drug War, women will now be at the table through the launch by Jackee Stang of the High Times Women’s Council within the company and the publication of is first edition of the Women of Weed Magazine in September.

About our Guest:  Jackee Stang serves as the VP of Programming at High Times Media, leading the charge on the mainstreaming of Cannabis content with a particular focus on New Media and Female driven content. Jackee hails from New England and Texas, where she spent most of her formative years, and where cannabis was stigmatized but omnipresent. In Houston she built a successful career in non-profit grant writing and event planning – raising millions of dollars, and putting to work thousands in underserved communities in east Texas. Jackee has worked as an award-winning producer for Bulletproof Nutrition and most recently launched the High Times Women’s Council – the first ever female focused think-tank within High Times, aimed at identifying, celebrating and elevating authentically female driven growth within the space. Jackee also hosts the High Times Green Room podcast, a long-form interview audio project designed to tell insider stories about cannabis culture – the stories most people never get to hear – until now.

2.  Elaine B. Holtz presents two of her poems: Power and You might Say I Am A Dreamer.

Power

There are but two powers in the world, the sword and the mind. In the long run, the sword is always beaten by the mind. Napoleon Bonaparte

How can you harness your brainpower? Let’s look at POWER.

P – power is purpose. Ideas, dreams, goals, any product of the mind’s eye harnessed to a purpose will produce a storehouse of power.
O – power is open-mindedness. It is having a mind open to new ideas. It is thinking unfettered by preconceived notions.
W – power is wisdom. It means strength, tempered by good judgment, combined with learning and knowledge.
E- power is energy. It is the engine of work, the force of human expression, the capacity for action.
R- power is responsibility. The greater the power, the greater the responsibility. Power without responsibility leads to corruption and evil. Power united to responsibility is the source of good works and the increased well-being of all.
POWER is the ability, the vigor, the strength to influence others and to control one’s own destiny.

You might Say I Am A Dreamer

Last night I had a beautiful dream about life
and all it could mean.
I dreamt how beautiful it was to live when the
entire world learned to give.

Humankind at last learned how to use their
highest level of thought,
Making wars no longer, Peace was taught,
Prejudice was a thing in the past; all humankind
became equal at last.

The cry of hunger and pain were no longer heard every day,
Humans learned to give, to help others along the way.

How beautiful it was to live
How great to give
Peace at last
War and hate in the dim past
Fear and mistrust were unheard of; all humans knew were trust and love.

With a start I woke up from my beautiful dream,
Opened my ears and eyes
Hearing and seeing all of human kind cry
Tears of sorrow fell down my face as I vowed to
Help change this place.

 April is Sexual Violence Awareness Month

April is a month dedicated to raising awareness about sexual violence and increasing the public’s understanding about sexual violence in our society. It also provides opportunities for the community to be directly involved in supporting victims and survivors, their families, and organizations that provide crisis intervention throughout the year. Sexual violence prevention requires many voices and roles. Prevention is possible and we all can make a difference. Here’s how YOU can make a difference, as we learned at the Panel Discussion after the Special Screening of the Film The Rape of Recy Taylor on March 29 last week at the Rialto Cinema in Sebastopol:
Intervene to stop concerning behavior
Speak up when you hear rape jokes or harmful comments
Believe and support survivors
Create prevention policies at your workplace or school
Coordinate a community event to raise awareness
Talk with neighbors about ways everyone can get involved
Email legislators to gain support for prevention and services
Support the agencies who provide services for survivors: DONATE
