Helping Murder Victim’s Families, Mothers In Charge, Momma On A Mission and Corey’s Network Inc

The shock and stress on families that lose a loved one to violence is unbelievable. The suddenness of the loss is compounded over and over by demands from police, prosecutors, press, funeral directors friends and so much more. Mothers In Charge, Momma On A Mission and Corey’s Network Inc provide help navigating all of the demands for decisions and allow families to grieve their loss. They advocate with police, funeral homes and the press to name a few, as well as help pay for funerals, hold vigils, sometimes going door to door looking for information of what happened and who committed the crime.

Today Host Craig Lubow will be talking with Rosilyn Temple, Monique Willis and Michelle Metje about their own personal tragedies and what they are doing to help others through hard times. We will also be opening the phone lines for your questions and calls.

The realistic Shia LaBeouf drama “American Honey” was largely shot in the Kansas City area. It won the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Susan and Russ give their reactions to this story about a wandering band of bohemian teenagers who travel around the midwest selling magazines. It’s from acclaimed British filmmaker Andrea Arnold.

“Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” could be described as “’The Last Samurai’ with a Pistol.” Tom Cruise reunites with “Samurai” director Ed Zwick in Cruise’s second go round as Lee Child’s backside-kicking ex-military policeman turned lone vigilante. While it has a sufficient action quotient for undemanding genre fans, this modest thriller is mostly boilerplate fare. Tom seems to be operating on Cruise control.

“Denial” is a taut, intriguing true story about an important British legal case. Rachel Weisz plays an American historian who is sued for libel by a Holocaust denier when she calls him a liar. Is someone lying when they really believe what they say is true, even when it isn’t? “Denial” should spark some interesting post-movie coffee talk.

“Ouija: Origin of Evil” is a prequel to the 2014 horror hit. When a fake medium tries out a Ouija board, her daughter becomes possessed by an evil spirit. A very talented cast and taut pacing help make this low budget entry a surprisingly effective little thriller.

“Keeping Up with the Joneses” is a spy spoof that should have been a lot better than it is. Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher are a suburban couple whose lives are upended when international spies Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot move in next door. The middling film is far less than the sum of its parts.

Also opening this week, Tyler Perry returns with a timely spoof, “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” Rob Zombie is back with “31,” a horror movie about killer clowns that is definitely not a spoof, “Miss Hokausai” is a Japanese manga anime film, “In the Valley of Violence” is a Western starring Ethan Hawke and John Travolta, and “I’m Not Ashamed” is a faith-based film that centers on one of the victims of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.

LGBT History Month! We are celebrating our community’s history with Mark Segal’s “And Then I Danced: Traveling the Road to LGBT Equality.” We also have an outstanding panel to discuss it. Info, bios, and photos below. The show will be aired on our 100,000-watt community radio station KKFI 90.1 FM, and streamed live at www.kkfi.org

“Mark Segal is one of the major actors in the struggle for LGBT equality in the U.S. … A life as eventful as Segal’s demands that a book be written about it.” — South Florida Gay News

“Mark Segal is living proof that each and every one of us has the power to create tremendous change….He has made America a better place for everyone in the LGBT community.” — Curve Magazine

Mark Segal has established a reputation as the dean of American gay journalism over the past five decades. From the Stonewall demonstrations in 1969 to founding the Philadelphia Gay News in 1975, along with his more recent forays into TV and politics, his proven commitment as a tireless LGBT advocate has made him a force to be reckoned with. Respected by his peers for pioneering the idea of local LGBT newspapers, he is one of the founders and former president of both the National Gay Press Association and the National Gay Newspaper Guild. Segal was recently inducted into the National Lesbian & Gay Journalist Association’s Hall of Fame and was appointed a member of the Comcast/NBCUniversal Joint Diversity Board, where he advises the entertainment giant on LGBT issues. He is also president of the dmhFund, though which he builds affordable LGBT-friendly housing for seniors. He lives in Philadelphia.

HOLLY BAGGETT is a Professor of American History at Missouri State University where she has taught for 20 years. Her fields of specialization are Women in American History and LGBTQ American History.

She has been politically active concerning LGBTQ issues in Southwest Missouri.

JOHNDA BOYCE is an attorney in Kansas City, Mo. She recently worked on two campaigns for local nondiscrimination ordinances, and she is a longtime supporter of LGBT History Month. In 1994, she assisted Rodney Wilson on the first Coordinating Council for his brainchild, a nationwide celebration of LGBT history in October. Johnda and Rodney have recently donated their personal LGBT History Month papers to the Missouri History Museum as part of that institution’s initiative to collect and preserve LGBT artifacts.

JOHN LONG has more than 37 years of experience in magazine and book publishing. Since 2004 he has been the owner and publisher of Kansas City’s magazine, “Camp,” for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities. He is the co-founder with Jim Gabel (who is also a co-founder of Camp), of PrideRide from 2001 to 2005, which was a fundraising bicycle ride for organizations and services benefiting the LGBT communities of greater Kansas City. John is a native of Chicago, Ill., and has lived and worked in Chicago, San Francisco and Bay Area of California, Washington, D.C. metro and Kansas City, Missouri. He lives in Kansas City, Mo., with his beloved two Scotties and Westie terriers.

RODNEY WILSON has been a teacher since 1990. He has taught in secondary, correctional, community-based, and now post-secondary institutions. He holds master’s degrees in history and religion. In 1994, he became the first openly gay K-12 teacher in Missouri’s public school system and also founded LGBT History Month. Recent essays can be found atwww.huffingtonpost.com/rodney-wilson

ELIZABETH ANDERSEN has been immersed in LGBT history through film, music, and books for more than a decade. She has been involved in Kansas City’s LGBT Film Festival for 16 years. She has been on crew for the National Women’s Music Festival, the Iowa Women’s Music Festival, and the Amazon Music Festival. Apparently in preparation for hosting the Sandra Moran Radio Book Club show, she founded and led lesbian book groups, in addition to attending Homollectuals, a gay men’s book group. She has two degrees in English literature, has taught English composition, and is a full-time copy editor.

On August 16th 2012, thirty-four platinum mineworkers were gunned down by the police under the auspices of South Africa’s African National Congress. The ensuing outrage became a turning point in South African history. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll interview the authors of a new book about the Marikana massacre. Then we’ll talk with the authors of another new book called Hesitant Comrades: The Irish Revolution and the British Labour Movement. Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
