Ella Jo Baker

Ella Jo Baker , born December 13, 1903, in Norfolk, Virginia developed a sense for social justice early in her life while listening to her grandmother tell stories about slave revolts.  Baker studied at Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she challenged unfair school policies.  After graduating in 1927 as class valedictorian, she began joining social activist organizations committed to economic justice for all people including the NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee . She was a behind-the-scenes activist whose career spanned over five decades. She worked alongside some of the most famous civil rights leaders of the twentieth century, including: W.E.B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.   

Tanya Free and Friends Radio honors the legacy of Ella Jo Baker.

Too Much Doubt

Hundreds of thousands have signed petitions and rallied in support of Troy Davis who was convicted in Georgia twenty years ago for the murder of a police officer. Seven of nine witnesses have since recanted their testimony alleging police coercion and intimidation. With significant doubt, and a lack of physical evidence, how is it that there are still those in our midst that continue to call for and even cheer the execution of Mr. Davis?

Let your voice be heard! Sign the Petition!

Dream Deferred?

The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in DC has found itself in the midst of controversy  not only because of the apparent over commercialization of the message of Dr. King but also the fact that the sculpture was designed by a Chinese sculptor and assembled by unpaid Chinese workers.

How do you feel about the fact that no American sculptors or construction workers were deemed worthy of the privilege to design and erect a statue of Dr. King?
