First Edition Nov 14: Byrd and Breeze on the Latest Fallout from Trump's Election Victory

Nov 15, 2016

Political strategist Catalina Byrd sits in for First Edition host Sean Yoes. Byrd and political commentator Sean Breeze discuss the latest fallout from Trump’s election victory: protestors across the country gather to march, China's response to Trump, and the petition on Change.org that over 600,000 Americans have signed in effort to elect Clinton to presidency. 

And: How do we keep our kids safe and teach them to defend themselves after the election? Byrd and Breeze discuss this in light of a blood drive sign vandalized with a racial slur at a high school in Fulton, Maryland; a Towson area Black Lives Matter sign vandalized; and Errika Bridgeford's daughter sharing her story of having to physically defend herself after a white boy found out she didn’t vote/ or won't vote for Trump.

 

In the second hour, Byrd speaks to Blaque Diamond, author of a three-book series that explains Foster Care and Adoption to Children for National Adoption Day.

Then, a continued conversation with the Fades and Fellowship, a theatrical commentary set behind the backdrop of a barbershop that delves deeply into some of the most central issues affecting not only the communities in which the barbershops reside, but also the larger collective consciousness of America – issues ranging from educational inequities to racism and homophobia, from entrepreneurship and wealth consciousness to police brutality, and from health and image to relationship wellness.
