Options May 6, 2014: You've Got To Fight... For Your Right... To Exist!
Tonight I welcome Howard L. Feinstein, author of Fire On The Bayou: True Tales From The Civil Rights Battlefield, a new book about the enforcement years of the Civil Rights Act and Howard's time as an attorney for the Department of Justice, prosecuting corrupt sheriffs, KKK members, Neo-Nazis and other perpetrators of hate and violence. Mr. Feinstein has some amazing stories of his years on the road in the 60's and 70's, confronting bigotry, racism and evil. Howard is also known as "Hurricane Howie", a killer on the keys, who's played piano, keyboards and accordion with an impressive cross-section of musicians.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 5/6/14 6:23pm Scott Blake:

I wonder if Mr. Feinstein has ever heard about the David Rice & Ed Poindexter (aka Mondo and Ed) case in Omaha, Nebraska, 1970.
  Tue. 5/6/14 6:28pm Scott Blake:

The Ku Klux Klan also burned Malcolm X's childhood home in Omaha, Nebraska, 1925.
  Tue. 5/6/14 6:30pm Matt:

I wonder if Mr Feinstein has any legal problem with "hate crime" prosecution. Some have suggested it offers unequal protections for victims. Thanks for a mention.

Can Howard comment on the "Stand Your Ground" laws that have been in the news earlier this year?

Where can I buy the book? :)

Crowe! Legendary FMU DJ
  Tue. 5/6/14 6:49pm MissAmanda:

I don't think it's that Crowe.
Avatar Tue. 5/6/14 6:50pm Danne D:

Hrm. Not sure. I can see Crowe listening and calling Chris' show.
Avatar Tue. 5/6/14 6:50pm Danne D:

And I know that he has called Shut Up Weirdo.
Avatar Tue. 5/6/14 6:51pm Danne D:

See it is Crowe :D
  Tue. 5/6/14 6:52pm MissAmanda:

I stand corrected.
  Tue. 5/6/14 6:53pm MissAmanda:

This is a great hate crime happy hour. Let's do it again.

Really fascinating stuff, and very inspirational (tho im not about to enter law school). And to the lawyer caller who slagged the police, maybe we can hear The Dicks song
Avatar Tue. 5/6/14 6:57pm Danne D:

Obligatory link to Crowe's archives when he calls in :)
Avatar Tue. 5/6/14 6:57pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show, Chris!
Thanks for being a hero, Howard!
Have a good night everyone
  Tue. 5/6/14 6:58pm MissAmanda:

Thanks Chris! Thanks Howie!

See you next Tuesday! (Sorry for Bogarting Chris' line.)
Avatar Tue. 5/6/14 6:59pm JakeGould:

“Hate Crime Happy Hour” would be a great show. Each week a victim of a hate crime comes on the air, talks about it & then gets to pick songs that reflect their feelings.
