Bring It On! – November 11, 2013

Play

Clarence Boone and Cornelius Wright welcome Morgan Newman, her mother Sharlene and Bethel AME Church Pastor Dennis Laffoon

PART ONE
When Morgan Newman saw a preview of the CNN Freedom Project, a series of documentaries on modern-day slavery, one part of the story stood out. The documentary featured Free the Girls, a non-profit organization that provides job opportunities for survivors of sex trafficking, collecting gently used bras and donating them to the women as starting inventory for their own business. The documentary and the charity stuck with Newman.

What also struck Newman was the simplicity of the project, and though a busy extracurricular schedule forced her to put it off for a while, this summer she decided to finally move forward, bringing the project to Bloomington. She and a few friends came together and set a goal: they would try to collect 300 bras to give to Free the Girls for resale. The girls collected five times their goal, totaling about 1,500 bras by the time they were ready to ship to Free the Girls.

Joining Clarence and Cornelius in the studio to talk about her community-wide effort to empower women is Morgan Newman, her mother Sharlene and Bethel AME Church Pastor, Dennis Laffoon, who successfully nominated her for a Bloomington Everyday Hero Award.

PART TWO
Headline news and local calendar events of interest to the African-American community.

Books Unbound – A Study in Scarlet, Part 11

Play

In this episode:
“A Study in Scarlet” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

About this Author:
Born on 22 May 1859, in Edinburgh, Scotland, Arthur Conan Doyle went on to study medicine at Edinburgh University from 1876 to 1881, during which time he began writing short stories. His first published work was “The Mystery of Sasassa Valley,” which appeared in 1879. With the publication of A Study in Scarlet, Conan Doyle created the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson who would make him famous. He based the deductive reasoning that characterized Holmes on the techniques of Joseph Bell, one of his instructors in medical school. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died on 7 July 1930, far more famous as a writer than as a doctor.

About this book:
Originally titled “A Tangled Skein.” A Study in Scarlet first appeared in Beeton’s Christmas Annual (1887), and was published as a book in July, 1888. Twenty-seven year-old Conan Doyle received £25 for full rights to the story, which he had written in three weeks in 1886. The work, the first of only four full-length Sherlock Holmes novels, introduced the consulting detective and the faithful Dr. Watson, who also chronicled their adventures in fifty-six short stories to make the Baker Street team the most famous pair in detective fiction. Although it attracted little notice at the time, it’s portrayal of Mormonism soon became controversial.

About this program:
Books burn; ideas endure. Books Unbound is a weekly showcase of literary works banned by those who fear the power of the pen. The program promotes literary reading and curiosity, challenging listeners to consider viewpoints that may be different from our own. Each week we bring you literature prohibited by governments, schools, and religious institutions. In the words of French philosopher Emile-Auguste Chartier, “nothing is as dangerous as an idea, when it’s the only one you’ve got.” Books Unbound is a production of community radio WFHB in Bloomington, Indiana.
