GayTalk 2.0 – Episode 46 – Dr. Martin Luther King Day Special With Guest Host Lillian Marion
5 days ago
On today’s episode of GayTalk 2.0: The Ultimate Podcast, we honor a visionary leader, preacher, and father. We celebrate the life of Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We discuss his impact on our country and the world. We look at his legacy 48 years after his assassination and how his life’s work changed the social and racial climate in the United States of America. Chris joins us all the way from Munich, Germany. We welcome to the show guest Co-Host Lillian Marion in Chris’s absence. Marion is an African American woman who’s a member of the LGBT community and daughter of famed New Haven resident Winfred Rembert. She provides a unique perspective to the show topic at hand.
Lillian’s father, Winfred Rembert is an African American artist who hand-tools and paints on leather canvases. Rembert grew up in Cuthbert, Georgia, where he spent much of his childhood laboring in the cotton fields. He was subjected to a hard life. Torment and beatings left Mr. Rembert with scars that he has carried with him valiantly throughout his life. Rembert survived three days of beatings and an attempted lynching on his life. He was arrested during a 1960s civil rights march. As a prisoner, he learned to make tooled leather wallets and design on leather. Rembert stretches, stains, and etches on leather and creates scenes from the rural Southern town where he was born and raised.
A documentary film about his life, All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert, was released in 2011. With his intensely autobiographical paintings depicting the day-to-day existence of African Americans in the segregated South, Winfred Rembert has preserved an important, if often disturbing, chapter of American history. His indelible images of toiling in the cotton fields, singing in church, dancing in juke joints, or working on a chain gang are especially powerful, not just because he lived every moment, but because he experienced so much of the injustice and bigotry they show as recently as the 1960s and 70s
