1.  The Conservative Vicelords-Chicago’s gang-turned-community organization
Two weeks ago, Bobby Gore passed away in Chicago.  He was one of the founders of the Conservative Vicelords, a faction of the Vicelords that transformed one of the oldest and most infamous of Chicago’s street gangs into a community based organization dedicated to empowering the Lawndale section of Chicago.  Understanding what went right and wrong with the Conservative Vicelords in the late 60’s and early 70’s is key to understanding what is right and wrong with violence in our streets today.  Please tune in as we speak to three original members of the Conservative Vicelords and the author of a book dedicated to Bobby Gore, the World of Gangs.

3.  Black Immigrants and the Civil Rights movement.

1.  Do we have the audacity to stop hoping and start changing?

Prez Obama was sworn in on MLK day this year, forcing all sorts of talking heads to make connections that may or may not be true between the two.  But it got us at LTAI thinking.  What are people on the ground thinking about hope and change, and changing more than hoping?  If that didn’t just confuse you, tune in as we talk to Phil Agnew (Dream Defenders), Desmond Meade (Florida Rights Restoration Coalition), Caitlin Breedlove (Southerners on New Ground) and Erika Andiola (Dream Action Coalition).  Plus, our own Shannan Reaze will give us a report back of the festivities at the inauguration.  Don’t miss this.
2. “…through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall…”
Of all the things said during Obama’s inauguration speech, that statement is considered among the most profound, especially for folks in the LGBT and Gay Rights Movement.  Tonight, we check in with our friends at Get Equal-Florida (Jarrod Scarbrough) about what actions will spring from these words.
