“Liberals and Apologists betrayal of
The Civil Rights and Social Justice Movements:
An “Affirmative Action” Baby Speaks”

Larry Watson phot bostonvoyager

with Lawrence Watson

accompanied by pianist Mr. Desmond Scaife Jr.

Watson will present through music and spoken word a first-person response to the catatonic state of White Liberals and apologetic Blacks to the blatant escalation of institutional racism, sexism, and the murdering of Black people gay or “straight” in America. In honoring  Dr. W.E.B. Dubois co-founder of the research method commonly referred to as Qualitative Research, Watson will present a series of personal stories as a thirty-five plus resident of “Liberal Boston” covering such topics as “Driving While Black” in Brookline (DWB), “Walking in the Post Office While Black in Jamaica Plain”(W.I.P.W.B), Working at Public Television While Black in Boston (W.P.T.W.B.) and working in Higher Education While Black in Cambridge and Back Bay (W.H.E.W.B). Hist story is an account of most Black professionals post-President Johnsons’ Executive Order on Affirmative Action. The presentation is a tribute to Black Orators like Paul Robeson, Shirley Chisholm, Elma Lewis, and Nelson Mandela. Video footage will be shown throughout the presentation.
