Good Afternoon from Black Women In Artificial Intelligence. So excited about this conversation.
Lillian Johnson

if you have any questions for Dr. King. please drop them in the Q&A tab.
Erica Blanton
50:32
what she is saying is the pronoun “they” in the LGBTQ community. it makes communication difficult if you are new to that term as I am and I believe Dr. King is saying that too
anita
51:18
I feel like I always have to educate my while counterparts on BLM, disparities within the black community etc., is this always my responsibility
Erica Blanton
51:23
however, MLK Jr. if you read is literary work. He wrote of “man” and “brotherhood “ he implied “she” and “sisterhood” but we have evolved as a society since the time he was alive
Erica Blanton
51:30
forgive my interruption ❤️
Kristine Wright
52:04
Yes! King would not debate, his secretary told Malcolm, because "he has always considered his work in a positive action framework rather than engaging in consistent negative debate." (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/malcolmx/peopleevents/e_civilrights.html)
Erica Blanton
52:51
Malcolm X will receive justice the 21st, well his daughters might feel justice was reached. I pray for healing for the Shabazz family
Thelma Day
53:13
Congrats Dr. King and my sister Pat Harvey Dr. Day thank you for continuing the conversation on behalf BLM
Jj

Brilliant as your father. I’m learning so much.
Erica Blanton

no, see, explaining even made me seem like I was being a protagonist. I was with you Dr. King.
Erica Blanton
54:28
spiritual dialogue?
Erica Blanton
55:43
I am struggling with this very thing with how to approach conversation. thank you Dr. King
Erica Blanton
56:25
young people say it’s not their responsibility, google is free
Erica Blanton
56:39
so, can we just have to promote information?
Thelma Day
57:28
Congrats Dr. King and my sister Pat Harvey . Dr. Day thank you for continuing the conversation on behalf of BLM Dr. McGhee

a debate with Malcolm would have been informative and not negative
Erica Blanton
01:01:04
Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love. Martin Luther King Jr.

Primarily this form approach is spiritual. How do we get churches to adopt this approach. I f we can’t get the church to love their enemies how will the general community adopt it?

Thanks so much for asking my question. Artificial Intelligence is changing the world every day. Black Women In Artificial intelligence seeks to bridge the gap and address the issues from data privacy, facial recognition, etc. Educate - Engage- Embrace - Empower

You could hold a political office. Have you ever considered running for Governor or VP or Senate or Presidency?
Debbie Boisseau
01:30:29
when involved in conversations about racism , how do you get the point across that the 1st step is to get everyone to show respect toward their fellow human and to stop classifying by race...that the only classification is the human race

Erica Blanton
01:57:14
vulnerability and truth is essential
Camille Goulet, LACC
01:58:58
For those who don't get the system, ask yourself whether we need to change the system, not demand conformity
Erica Blanton
01:58:59
sisterhood and brotherhood takes reaching out and communicating and being respectful to find common ground. love for one another is essential in that process
Erica Blanton
01:59:28
#BelovedCommunity
Marilin Martin
01:59:30
We can go about dealing with the lack of trust by seeking to understand before we expect to be understood, as Dr. King said earlier today. That is practical advice that can apply to all of our human family relationships!
Erica Blanton
01:59:55
Thank you to everyone who spoke!
Erica Blanton
02:00:11
yes virtues and ethics are essential

to quote Dr. King again, “we have to be humble enough to consider the other person has something to offer, and we have to be willing to discover what that is”
Erica Blanton
02:13:17
“I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.”
