ED ASNER & MAGGIE GRANT ON “THE INSTIGATOR”
FREEDOM OF THE PRESS is our focus with the great ED ASNER and MAGGIE GRANT, co-conspirators on the upcoming feature film THE INSTIGATOR, the first of a trilogy of feature films on the fight for freedom in early America, leading up to the Revolution.
As television’s former LOU GRANT, who inspired so many of us to become journalists, Ed has been active for decades as one of America’s leading advocates for peace, social justice and freedom of speech. So his powerful role in The Instigator, about the legendary 1734-1735 trial of JOHN PETER ZENGER brings with it huge moral and theatrical clout.
Co-Writer/Director/Producer Maggie Grant has conjured a brilliant script about the trial and the key role played by the ultimate “Philadelphia Lawyer” ANDREW HAMILTON, who also served as the attorney (and close friend) of BENJAMIN FRANKLIN.
In this fleeting hour we talk about the upcoming fall release of this feature film, and the other award-winning productions coming from this great partnership. Next in line will be films about the BOSTON TEA PARTY, the AMERICAN REVOLUTION and the writing of the Constitution and BILL OF RIGHTS.

Dr. Monteiro says it’s time for the Black liberation movement to get focused.
– Dr. Gerald Horne, the professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston, is one of the most prolific Black scholars of modern times. Much of his recent work has focused on the origins of the United States as a bulwark of slavery and racist reaction. Dr. Horne’s news book is titled, “Confronting Black Jacobins: The U.S., the Haitian Revolution, and the Origins of the Dominican Republic.” Horne sees his book as an update on the late, great C.L.R. James’s 1938 classic, “The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution.”
– Two Black farmers organizations, one in the U.S. Deep South, the other in Central America, have been awarded the 2015 Food Sovereignty Prize. But, what is food sovereignty?

What’s been going on in Ukraine represents a monumental turning point in the balance of world geopolitical/military power. Why? Well, it’s simply this: Ukraine will very likely go down in history as the country where America, the supposed sole superpower in the world, was checkmated and met its match at the hands of the other superpower in the world – …
