Ellie 2.0 Radio – April 20, 2024

We start with our featured idealist Ella Baker, who was a “doer” in the civil rights movement of the 1930’s to 1960’s, and who worked behind the scenes to strengthen the NAACP and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (which orchestrated lunch counter protests). Ella is one of the unsung heroes who made things happen! The Big Interview is with Ava Kian of MinnPost, who reports on the higher rates of suicide in greater MN—a topic near and dear to my heart given my father’s suicide in 1990. In the C-Block I talk about the great response I received when I presented Gray Area Thinking© in Delano MN on April 13. I also talk about co-founding Carver County Pride—we’ve set our first Pride event for August 31! Hooray!
