In the Spirit of Summer of Soul, an amazing film about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, Voices from the Frontlines fights to protect and publicize our revolutionary history. Stop complaining about fascism if you are part of the anti-communist, revisionist, “social justice” tendency that rejects the revolutionary achievements of the U.S. Communist Party, the Soviet Union, the People’s Republic of China, the Black Power Movement, and the Black Panther Party (who did security at the Festival.
Today on Voices we reprise two wonderful revolutionary Voices

Julian Bond in conversation with Eric Mann at the 50th Anniversary of Mississippi Freedom Summer, 1964 in Jackson, Mississippi in the summer of 2014. Great appreciation to Catherine Murphy, William Sabourin, and Julian Lamb, our amazing team that audioed and videod 10 wonderful conversations with veterans of the Civil Rights Movement. Julian Bond was a major leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, of whom, as Julian tells us, President John Kennedy called “those sons of bitches.” Check out his amazing bio on Wikipedia. It is very moving that in 2014, Julian and I had a discussion about the essential role of memory, as we keep losing comrades along the way. Julian said, “Many people here I will never see again” and at the time, I thought his reference was to “others” but very sadly, Julian died in 2015.
