We're also joined by a very special guest. Her Majesté Kpodjito Dòwòti Désir. Queen Mother of the Republic of Benin.
Formerly known as The Kingdom of Dahomey as portrayed in the film The Woman King.
In addition to supporting Louisiana's abolition efforts, she'll be addressing some of the rhetoric and calls for boycotts that have slandered the history of her nation.
FYI. The Queen Mother is a slavery abolitionist who has worked with the ASNN for the past 2 years.

On November 8th Louisiana citizens can vote yes on 7 and remove the slavery exception clauses from the LA constitution. That's right. In 2022 we've finally got an opportunity to actually end constitutional slavery in the prison capitol of the world. Louisiana.

Of course we'll have incredible music mixes and we'll bring the ancestors voices back to life for a new generation on our Bridging The Gap segment.
