Maggie comments that she and her sister Africa are the two youngest siblings. Maggie handles the business. 53:48 Stop/re-start digitizing. Maggie Brown says she produces the shows and that today's performance was a kind of family reunion. Africa Brown introduces herself and compliments Maggie on getting this show together. Africa says she lives in Los Angeles with her parents. Jean Brown introduces herself. She notes that she and Brown, Jr. have worked together since 1962 or 63. Brown, Jr. talks about his history, his stint as faculty at Drew University and his interest in wanting to return to Chicago. He mentions his son Oscar Brown III is a member of the Funky Wordsmyths (recorded on tape 14044). He comments on Maggie's educational music. 57:57 Weinberg says he grew up knowing Oscar Brown, Jr as a genius of his time that wasn't fully recognized. Brown, Jr reflects that it's the nature of his music. The entertainment industry wants to keep the public stupefied. They don't want sensitivity. He says his work is considered militant and suggests the industry doesn't want to support an artist going into the projects and trying to use music to help the community. 01:00:58 Brunson enters. He says he's written a lot with Brown, Jr. He's learned a lot from him about life and art. Says he met Oscar Brown III in high school 23-years ago. The Brown's first born son makes a quick and silent appearance. 01:03:19 Maggie Brown says her sister, Africa, was in a play at age 8 and won an award. She has not been singing as long as the others in the family. 01:04:04 Weinberg comments that it's unusual to find one family with so much talent and asks if they could have developed as they did if they were not from Chicago. Oscar Brown III says no. Chicago had a big influence. The elder jazz musicians shaped them. Brunson composed at age 14 a song that all the kids performed. He says the blues that Brown Jr. does is Chicago blues. It's not New Orleans or St. Louis. It's a heady blues indigenous to Chicago. It messes with your head. 01:06:49 Weinberg asks why the world doesn't know about Oscar Brown, Jr. Jean Brown that once on an airplane he lost a play that he had written. He had memorized it and re-wrote it. Maggie Brown says if someone handled her father's business it would be a gold mine. But there are forces against it. Brown, Jr. hasn't been perfect, but he has made a lot of effort to get his work out into the community. He has proposed to many cities the idea of going into the projects to use music to help create a positive influence. Maggie Brown says we have to do it ourselves. 01:10:04 Weinberg says he once produced a piece on a watermelon street vendor and searched for a recording of Brown, Jr's version of Watermelon Man song to use. He couldn't find it in the stores. He could only find Jon Hendricks' version. Jean Brown says people don't want her husband to be popular because his work makes people think and that's dangerous. 01:12:38 The family says there's tremendous joy in performing together. Oscar Brown III says he admires his sister Africa. She cracks the whip and gets everyone moving. The joy they share is the fuel that keeps them going. It's how the music is created. 01:14:19 Maggie Brown says she remembers when Andrew Jones recorded The Funky Wordsmyths for Chicago Slices and was concerned at first because he just walked in and started recording. She knew from history that culture bandits would steal music and sell it back to the artists. 01:15:55 B-roll of Weinberg, Maggie Brown and Jean Brown at table signing release forms. 01:16:07 END

TF1 News (Private - August 1982 ->)
The St. Paul Police Department is teaching its officers how to prevent misconduct and mistakes through peer intervention training. Ethical Policing is Courageous, or EPIC, training empowers officers to step forward when they’re concerned about a colleague’s actions. “If something is going sideways and someone is getting angry, you tap that person on the shoulder and say, ‘Hey, I got this,’” Chief Todd Axtell said. “It was very important to be able to stand in front of officers and let them know that this policy applies to me as well.” All of the 585 officers in the department have now received EPIC training. Axtell wears a pin as a symbol of his pledge to this new policy. “This program really embraces the fact that we're human beings,” he said. “This also gives the opportunity for our officers to be vulnerable and that's really something that we haven’t done a real good job of in the past, to become vulnerable enough to understand we have our limitations and when we understand our vulnerability we become better police officers.” According to Axtell, they started looking into the program in 2018. Axtell visited New Orleans with then-Deputy Chief Mary Nash to understand the training. “We came back to St. Paul and decided to launch the program and get it going for the entire department,” Axtell said. He said it took time to train the officers who would administer the program. It rolled out department-wide in fall 2020, just months after George Floyd’s murder. “It did give me a sense of how important it is for every officer who wears a badge in this entire country to be empowered to be able to step in, regardless of rank or time on the job, to stop something that shouldn’t be happening,” Axtell said. The eight-hour training involved role-playing and walking through past experiences where it could've been a helpful tool. “Sometimes we'll have programs that our officers aren’t that excited about but this one feels a little bit different,” said Axtell. “I think it’s been a long time coming to have the tools and the empowerment to be able to step in.” EPIC was created by the New Orleans Police Department several years ago to create a culture change within its own department. “Around 2016, we realized we wanted to really affect policing in a different way in New Orleans,” Deputy Superintendent Paul Noel said. “We have a history a troubled history in our past as well in New Orleans. We have a history of police officers committing misconduct, so we wanted to create a program that would help us, you know, prevent that from ever reoccurring again.” He said it’s based on the premise that mistakes and misconduct are oftentimes preventable. “A lot of times that change of police officers, swapping out, will deescalate the situation and calm it down and allow the situation to be resolved,” he said. In the wake of George Floyd’s death, NOPD received hundreds of inquiries about the training from police departments across the country. The Department partnered with the Georgetown University Law School to handle the increase in demand, developing the Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement (ABLE) Project. It’s a companion program to EPIC. “One of the principal things we teach in ABLE is what we call, 'Notice, decide and act,'” Noel said. “It's a process police officers go through if they see an officer about to make a mistake, about to commit misconduct or if they're in the process of doing so, it gives them the tools to identify what's going on and come up with a strategy to stop that from happening. It's not just enough to simply say police officers should intervene. We actually have to teach them how to intervene.” Noel told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the most important piece of the training is empowering officers to intervene across rank. “I think you can't underestimate how important that is. I mean, you look at the Floyd situation you had a senior officer and you had some brand new officers,” Noel said. “When I first saw what occurred with the George Floyd murder, my first reaction was anger. I was just really frustrated as a professional that police officers would behave in that way, but the second thing, I think, I was sad because of how preventable that was.” The trainings also promote officer wellness, including acknowledging stress on and off the job. “The stakes are so high what we do what police officers do is a challenging job, it's a very difficult job but that's why training is so important,” said Noel. “We need to make sure our police officers are equipped with the best training possible in every aspect of their job.”
