Whistleblowers is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the annual Whistleblowers Summit in Washington D.C..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Join Lawrence Lucas and Marti Oakley as we discuss the adverse affects of USDA being headed again by Tom Vilsack.  The civil rights violations and intentional discrimination against Black farmers, along with women and Hispanic farmers was rampant under Vilsack.  Should we brace ourselves for more of the same?  I doubt Monsanto’s (now, Bayer) Golden Boy has changed much over the years.

Also joining us will be:

Lloyd Wright, former USDA civil rights director

Lesa Donnelly, Vice President, USDA Coalition

Waymon Hinson, producer of the Black farmer documentary

Corey Lea, Black farmer & civil rights advocate

And Ron Cotton may even show up!

This will be an informative show.  There is so much to talk about!

Whistleblowers! The USDA Hour, is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the annual Whistleblowers! Summit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Join Lawrence and Marti this evening as they host a roundtable discussion concerning the failure of most candidates to fairly address the issues of discrimination against Black farmers that has gone on for decades within the USDA.  At issue is the Biden campaign lack of systemic solution or approach to changing and correcting the long standing, well documented abuses that have transpired.

Joining the show will be Michael Stoval, Julian Hishaw and Waymon Hinson.

Lawrence Lucas

Mr. Lucas was the former President of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees, beginning in 1994.  His career as a government employee began as a political appointee during the Carter Administration. He retired after 32 years of service.

Michael Stoval

Joining him will be Michael Stoval of Alabama who has been instrumental in bringing attention to the institutional failures of the USDA and DOJ.  Mr Stovel will talk about the continuing neglect and worsening of agency failures within the USDA that has worsened over the years under many administrations, including the former Obama and now current, Trump administration.

Waymon Hinson has earned degrees in theology and psychology is licensed as a psychologist and marriage and family therapist in Texas. His history with the Black farmer cause extends back to 1994 when he began to consult with farmers and their legal counsel. Mr. Hinson will also be discussing the release of the new documentary on Black farmers.

Julian Hishaw

In 2012, six years after she graduated, Hishaw launched Family Agriculture Resource Management Services (FARMS), an organization that helps Black farmers, and all farmers from historically disadvantaged groups, in Southeastern states retain ownership of their land. Now, she spends her days visiting farmers in the Southeast who face losing their property and assets due to mounting debt.
