Today's guests were:

Bro Jesse gave a Gulf Coast round up, including the push to move Hurricane Katrina victims out of the already-contaminated FEMA trailers, US Attorney General Eric Holder's civil right probe of NOPD officers who shot/killed unarmed citizens on the Danzinger Bridge while they tried to flee to safety, and, an update on the funeral and investigations of the lynching of Frederick Jermaine Carter in Mississippi.

Beatrice X Dale, who has become affectionately known as the "headpiece behind the Justice for Oscar Grant" movement, gave us an on the ground report from Oakland at the 2nd Annual Vigil for Oscar Grant, III. Although as expected Grant's uncle, Cephus Uncle Bobby Johnson couldn't get on with us to express his family's sentiments and push forward, Sis Beatrice talked about the next steps, and Wanda Johnson, Grant's mother, sent greetings to us during the interview.
Thanks for tuning in and for supporting our program everyone!
Peace and blessings,
Sis Charlene Muhammad
