5 Talking about history honestly | Bryan Stevenson

Gepubliceerd op 13 feb. 2017

 
In this Q&A, Bryan Stevenson, Public interest lawyer, gives updates on how he engaged with the issue of protecting children from incarceration. In this discussion with Chris Anderson, he talks about dealing with racism and the history of slavery more honestly in order to combat it. TEDArchive presents previously unpublished talks from TED conferences. Enjoy this unedited talk by Bryan Stevenson. Filmed at TED2014. NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube’s comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We’d love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you’d like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.

8 Meet The FIRST GRANDMA ! | White House Mother-In-Law | MARIAN ROBINSON | Good Morning America

Gepubliceerd op 22 jan. 2009

Gepubliceerd op 22 jan. 2009
Marian Robinson moves into the White House to help raise Sasha & Malia Obama. [JAN 2009] Mother-In-Law in the White House !

The First Grandma: Who Is Marian Robinson? Michelle Obama’s Mother Has Uprooted Her Life to Help Raise Her Grandchildren…

First lady Michelle Obama may be focusing on being mom in chief, but it’s her mother, Marian Robinson, who serves as the bedrock for the entire Obama clan.

Robinson, who retired from her job as a bank secretary in 2007 in order to devote more time to her grandaughters, Malia Obama, 10, and Sasha Obama, 7, left her Southside Chicago home to help her daughter and son-in-law make the transition to Washington, D.C.

Her bond with the first family is evident. Throughout the inauguration, Robinson watched closely over Malia and Sasha as a friendly assist to support Michelle and Barack Obama.

Michelle Obama has been vocal about how grateful she is for her mother’s aid during the family’s move from private to public life.

“My mother jokes. She said, ‘You know, when I taught you and your brother to push beyond your comfort zones, I didn’t expect you to drag me with you.’ She has been terrific,” Michelle Obama said in an interview with ABC News’ Bob Woodruff last year.

“We couldn’t do this without her,” she added, “and we are grateful that she’s going to be here, helping the girls, helping me get acclimated to the changes that we’ll be facing. I can breathe a little bit easier, knowing that if I’m out late or have to travel that the girls have Grandma.”

(2014) There are many faces of courage and the most unlikely people can end up heroes. One such hero is Samantha Barlow. For nearly a decade, she’s been fighting the most terrible eating disorders. But that’s only been half the battle. Because Sam’s also had to endure the unimaginable trauma of being abused by the very person who was supposed to make her well – her psychiatrist, Dr Ming Tan. It was the most appalling breach of trust and Samantha wasn’t the only girl Tan abused. But he wasn’t bargaining on Samantha’s guts and determination to take him on.

ABC News In-depth

In the 2016 race to the White House, presidential candidate Donald Trump took a shine to the whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, led by its Australian founder Julian Assange.

Trump revelled in the damage inflicted upon his opponent, Hillary Clinton, by a series of sensational leaks published by the site.
Now, as President, Donald Trump has performed a spectacular flip, presiding over an administration determined to imprison the publisher of the leaks.

In Part Two of its investigation into Julian Assange, Four Corners looks at Assange’s activities conducted during the nearly seven years he spent sheltering in the Ecuadorian Embassy.
