“Kresta in the Afternoon” – December 30, 2014 – Hour 1

+  COUNTDOWN OF THE TOP 40 INTERVIEWS OF 2014 – #10 - From the Plantation to the Pulpit: A Former Sharecropper Reflects on the Ferguson Riots and the New York Chokehold Case

  • Description: Deacon Larry Oney grew up the son of a sharecropper in Louisiana, where he experienced firsthand the horrors of racism in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. He recalls being afraid to travel through Mississippi because of the lynch mobs. He worked backbreaking hours in the fields to harvest cotton at a rate of two cents per pound-with crooked scales. Deacon Larry overcame these enormous challenges and is now a Catholic deacon, speaker, evangelist and the CEO of the HGI Global management firm. The state of race relations in the US is being debated more contentiously than ever after the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and the subsequent Grand Jury decisions not to indict the police officers involved. Deacon Larry joins us to give his view on these cases and the issue of race in America.
