is a message we need to getout to the world. Memphis has more
good than the world is being told. I salute you Daughters of Zion for
your homeless food truck deliveries. Yes, wow, seven days a week.
And somebody asked me to interview me. They say, why why do it
seven days a week because a lotof organizations may do two or three days

(03:32):
a week. Yeah. Yeah.My thing is I want to eat every
day, So I believe in treatingpeople the way I want to be treated.
If we start something, then wewant to continue the expectation that they
can count on having a meal everyday, which is very important. Yeah,
that is awesome. I think it'sreally awesome. And I commend you
for the work that you do inour community. And I mean it's got

(03:54):
to be oh say okay, sothis isn't the only nonprofit you have.
This isn't the only work you doin our community. The other thing,
I have another home nonprofit entitle it'scalled From the Streets to Wall Street Foundation,
and we take young students from acrossthe school system and we mentored them
and teach them how to become investorsin the stock market, how to open

(04:15):
up brokers accounts. A matter offact, last week we took students from
Melrose High School, from the Whitehavenarea, from the Fraser area in South
Memphis area and hickre Hill area.Took about twelve people to Ruth Chris.
About thirteen people we took it toRuth Chris paid for their meals. One
of the teachers from Mailrose, MissusGarrett. She was with me and a
couple of my men from the churchand we were just teaching them how to

(04:36):
invest and having a good dinner withthem. I remember saw me. I
remember the I like to take thekids to these fancy restaurants because I remember
when I was about twenty to twentyone years old. The first fancy restaurant
I went to was in total embarrassment. That's why I don't want these young
people to experience that this is whathappens to you. Got there at the

(04:57):
restaurant, they gave us a menu. I'm look at them, the men,
you're so fancy. I don't knowwhat in the world I'm looking at.
The only name that I'm familiar withis named Simon, so I ordered
Simon. They bring me out Simon. I say, what's this? It's
pink, it's not done. I'mthinking they're gonna bring me Simon croquette girl.
Do you hear me? I'm thinkingthey're gonna bring me that Sime.
I grew up with an orange mouth, with the with the biscuit and the

(05:20):
rice. Do you hear me?Lunch all day? You hear me?
Do you hear what I'm saying?And the gentleman, a white waiter.
He obviously covered my shame because hejust nod his head and took the play
back. You see that he didn'tsay anything because he knew I was never

(05:43):
exposed. So I promised to takethese young people out as many as we
can. Matter of fact, thissummer, we're gonna try to take a
few of them to New York toactually take them to Wall Street so they
can experience Wall Street. They paynothing. They don't have to pay anything
when we take them to Ruth Chrisand I taking them to Folks Filey Ruth
Chris, they pay nothing. Sowhat do you do you raise money to
have these You know, I guessto have these programs? Are you on

(06:08):
your own or you have the communitycome in to help you out. Ideally,
we would love to have funding forit, and I'm going to start
try to seek funding for it.But right now it's self funded, and
it's self funded through my church.Many of the powerful men in my ministry,
they will volunteer. They'll get togetherand we'll say, hey, sponsor
a young person. Give me onehundred dollars to sponsor a young person.

(06:30):
Wow, And we'll do it.And anything that's left over, I just
pay it out of my pocket.Wow. Because we're blessed to be a
blessings when we learned from the bookThe Souls of Black Folks from WB the
Boyce, he said, the talentof the tenth should always go back to
help the ninety percent, and weneed more time to tenth people like you
highlighting the community and highlighting the talentof tenth who are working trying to raise
up the ninety percent. Because I'mfrom Orange Mouth and I grew up with

(06:54):
nothing, so to you where you'refrom from. Yeah, so let me
ask you this, Since you saidOrange Mound, how did it affect you
to see the shooting that happened inOrange Mound at the park a few weeks
ago. I mean, you know, it's devastating to see a place where
you love getting negative media attention.The only blessing in that was that two

(07:19):
days later we were taking kids fromOrange Mound to Ruth Chris. Wow.
So it was God's divine plans.We had already set that up to have
those kids with us, not knowingtwo days before, and I was crying
at Rue Chris because one of theyoung ladies, one of the students in
mel Roads, she talked about howimportant the streets from the streets to Wall

(07:41):
Street organization is because her family isstruggling. But listen to what she says
to me. She said two thingsthat made me cry. She said,
my family is struggling and my communityis struggling. How many young students in
eleventh grade seventeen can identify with theircommunity like that, to say my family
is struggling, but then the communitystruggling and me growing up in that community,

(08:03):
the same community. I taught atmail Rose for sixteen years, so
it's very good to my heart.My mother and father graduated from mal Rose
High School, so I'm a lifelongOrange Maun. So to see to hear
her identify not just so her familystruggles, but to be have sense enough
to baby say in my community.Yeah, I broke down. I couldn't
handle it. That's powerful from ayoung person. Yeah, and I see

(08:26):
so many young people could be intoso many things. You know, just
to hear somebody say something. Iheard the Governor of New York. I
don't know if you heard her whenshe said some of the kids in the
Bronx don't even know what a computeris. And I beg to differ.
I know kids know what a computeris. They're holding one. They got
phones. I got cell phones.I don't know why she said something like
that. She's getting a lot ofbacklash. But I think a lot of
times, because our kids, manyof them are in communities where there's a

(08:54):
level of poverty, we think theworst when actually we should be thinking the
best. And to hear that thatyoung lady would say something like that is
a testament to that right. Don'tgive up on somebody because of their zip
code or judge them because their zipcode. And it's amazing. One of

(09:15):
the students, their mother has hada light bill last week of a one
thousand dollars. She said, Idon't know what I'm gonna do about it,
not knowing that we also receive assistanceto help them pay their light bills.
So I paid one thousand dollars toone of the ladies. Her light
being instantly paid them full. Soit's just to be able to connect with
the kids and then to help thoseparents. It's invaluable. You know,

(09:37):
it's a major blessing because that's thecommunity where I learn my old school home
training. I learned everything that Iknow from Orange Mouth. We had the
elders that taught us good old fashionedtreat people the way you want to be
treated. It's just nice to benice. All of these things that made
me who I am, so Ihave to give back to our community.

(09:58):
Let me ask you this, whatdo you think is the disconnect between our
generation and this younger generation that's comingup? What do you think the disconnected?
I think you said it perfectly.It's us. It's us. How
many of us are going back toreach those young people because think about it,
when we become middle class, uppermiddle class, what do we do?

(10:20):
We move out the hood right,and therefore there are no role models
they When I was growing up inOrange Mount, we had postmen, we
had firemen. We had those familieswho had their homes have been there a
long time. But as they died, firemen moved back on our street.
When they moved away, we didn'tget replaced by a postman. We got

(10:43):
their postman house got replaced with adrug dealer, with a game banger.
So it's very important for those ofus that are successful. That's why I
mentioned The Souls of Black Folks byWB Divorce. He gave us a challenge.
That book was written in nineteen thirty. He gave us a challenge to
go back and help these black folks, go back and help our people.

(11:05):
It's our obligation, you know.But we watch the news and say,
look at these people, but wehave to do something in doing what you're
doing. We used to be thoseright, highlighting poverty fighting organizations like Daughters
Design, like from the Streets ofWall Street, highlighting those organizations that are
actually doing because some organizations they're notprobably fighting, they're probably keeping. They

(11:26):
get paid by people staying in poverty. They're not uplifting the people out of
property. So every organization is nota poverty fighting organization. Some organizations get
paid because people are in poverty.Well, we have a certified Nursing and
Student Assistant program where we graduated morestudents than any certified nursing assistant program in

(11:46):
Shelby County in the state of Tennesseein the last year, over fifty five
students. These are people who startedout came to us on the welfare.
They came to us making less thaneight thousand an hour. Now many of
them making twenty dollars an hour,forty thousand dollars a year as a c
and eight in our five week classWO because we are a probably fighting organization
story. We want to get theseparents that we meet through the students,

(12:09):
We want to bring them to ourtraining programs. We want to elevate them
because as you know, all ofus who were elevated did it through education.
So we got the stress education forthe parents and for the students.
So who better to do it thanus. Nobody can do it, not
in the hood but us. PastorGerald Kiner, you guys, I'm stormy.

(12:30):
It is the pulse, and tellme about more about Daughters of Zion.
Daughters of Zion was started over fifteenyears ago two church mothers Mary Mary,
Mother Mary Butler and mother Marshall Williams. How long ago, about fifteen
years ago. They were in theirmid sixties, and they came to me
and said, Pastor Kaya, youare basically a genius in the Bible.

(12:52):
I've readen thirteen books, more booksthan any pastor in the city of Memphis.
Really. So now my first bookI wrote when I was twenty one
years old, one in here IGot You, I Got you. So
listen to this. They go,can you start a school for women?
Because when we were younger, womenwere not allowed to go to seminary.
Now, mind you When I startedout a design, there was a lot

(13:13):
of backlash from many pastors that didn'tbelieve in women preachers. Now it's the
thing, those same preachers that usedto talk about me, I now have
women because I was a visionary bythe grace of God. I'll visual I'm
fifty three years old. You areyoung in God. You are young.

(13:33):
You're young. I mean you areI'm sure wiser than your years, but
you're young. I mean you gotyou got a long time to run.
And but you know what's even greaterto see the next generation we're raising up.
Yeah, be ready to take ourplace. I'm here. I think
I think now this is just mefirst of all. First off, I

(13:54):
think if you're not giving out ofyour heart, not just giving robotically,
but if you're not giving out ofyour heart, you're really not living.
Number one. And the other thingI think is, you know, a
lot of us forget that we geta certain age and we think we know
it all. I think that youalways need a mentor. Amen. You

(14:16):
may not need a mentor to helpyou be a wife or whatever, but
you might need a mentor to helpyou with your kids, or you know
somebody that is I just think that'swhy it's always good to have people in
your life. Women have good womenwho should have women in their lives.
And know a lot of women sayI got a lot of male friends.
You gonna need some women in yourlife because you don't need that one woman

(14:39):
to say your skirt is falling orslipping or whatever. You know what I'm
saying. But I think when youhave programs like that, I think those
kinds of programs they teach us,and I hope they teach us. And
I hope this show teaches a lotof folks. I hear a lot of
people tell me they listen to theshow. I hope that a lot it
teaches. When you listen to thisshow, something in you opens up and

(15:01):
comes to lives and says, Iwant to be a part of my community.
Not just in my community. Butdude, like you said, get
in there. Man. I goto the school. And I'm not telling
you this to brag any of y'all, but I would encourage you to come
help me because we need help.I tutor kids because a friend of mine,
Melanie Strickland, Mayor Strickland's wife.Former Mayor Strickland's wife, She asks

(15:28):
me to tutor. Would I doit? She didn't think I would say
yes, And I said yes.And now I tutor kids at school because
I want to be a part ofthe solution. I don't want to just
be on the radio run in mymouth. But back to you, Pastor
County and his daughter of z thatI love it because I think that man,
sometimes the best advice you can getas a woman is from a woman.

(15:50):
You can get some good advice froma man, it's awesome. But
them daughters is out. I'll betthey offer the same. I'm telling you.
They told me after school started schoolwe started a school, not knowing
we had more nurses in the schoolthan we had about thirty five percent of
the students were nurses. They toldme, they said, you teach so

(16:12):
good, we need we need nursingassistants. Why don't you start a nursing
assistant school. That's how we startedthe school, just by doing good,
by having free Bible classes to helpwomen based upon two sixty something, your
old mothers in the church and DollarDesign became a muthti million dollar organization by
starting out giving free classes because twomothers wanted me to teach women how to

(16:34):
learn the Bible. Wow, that'syou reap what you saw do good and
good to following. That's a mounton top like that. That's some good
old fashion. It's supposed to comeback you guys your appreciation. But back
for you. No, I don't, but back to you, you bad
bad back to the daughters of Zion. So I saw the food truck,

(16:59):
and you got a call or youwere telling me you would get a call
before you came in here from somebodytrying to give you fools to give to
people on this tree. Tell meabout that ken Neely Neely's barbecue. We
all have to support him. Heis a man after God's on heard,
very generous. He did like you. He called the number, said,
hey, I see what you're doing. Matter of fact, I've seen the
truck pull away from the church severaltimes. Wow. And then I saw

(17:22):
a commercer. I said, maybethis is divine individual. I got to
call you. I have food todonate to you. Call me today on
my way here, said well,we got a lot of food. I
got chicken for you, I gotfries for you. I got whatever you
need. He said, come getit. I'll be here for thirty minutes
called one of my assisters. She'sthere right now picking up the food ken
Neey Needley's Barbecue. It's a blessingto our community. Now, don't advertise
this. He for nothing. He'sjust very humble. But want to be

(17:45):
a blessing to the homelesses. Yeah, yeah, I know that's not the
only call you get, but it'sa blessing to know that people are in
it. And then you know whatTennessee. I mean, they call us
the volunteer State for a reason becausepeople volunteer only that. But people in
Memphis are very giving, even peoplethat don't have a lot of money believe

(18:06):
in people. And we need food. We guess we need food. You
don't have to give us the money. Just go buy the food and drop
it off to Jesus people Church fortyfour hundred degree Gordon's and which we're gonna
cook it. And then what y'allgonna do. We're gonna serve it.
We're gonna cook it and serve itevery day. To how do people in
the community though, that need food, or people that are that know somebody

(18:32):
that's homeless, what do they do? They pick up the phone and call
you and say Hey, somebody needshelp. Tell me about that. Yes,
so there's the number of the calltwenty four to seven nine on one
five seven zero thirty two to twenty. It's nine O one five seven zero
thirty two twenty. And people callthey want to call it donate. They
can donate through their number, butpreferably, Hey, just go pick up

(18:53):
the meat for us if you can't. But some people say no, we
just give you one hundred dollars whateveryou buy the meat, and we do
that. They cash ap it toyou know, the homeless food truck,
homeless food truck. It's the cashop dollar sign homeless food truck. But
we don't care if you you don'tyou don't want to send cash. Just
about the food and we'll cook itbecause with ground beef for everything, for

(19:14):
steaks we make, for the spaghetti, we make chicken. You know,
we eat chicken, so chicken.I heard a young lady who was a
member of my church that left Memphisseveral years ago. She's a chef.
Brought her back in so she couldcook every day for the homeless food truck.
You cook every day, have achef cooking for cooking for the homeless
food truck. So when you takethe truck out, do people let her

(19:37):
on the street? Flag y'all down? That does happen most definitely. Wow.
Have you noticed, though, sinceyou've been doing this, that the
homeless population in Memphis is growing orit's most definitely growing because unfortunately the rent,
the rent is gone up, anda lot of the investors drove up

(19:59):
the rent when they brought thousands ofhomes through our Memphis and throughout the country.
They spent billions of dollars investing becausethey knew what they would do.
So the same rent that went fromwhat seven hundred, eight hundred dollars,
you can't find it anymore. It'ssixteen hundred now and most people cannot afford
that. So the rent would up, but most people's income then go up.

(20:21):
This is why many jobs now arefighting for the fifteen dollars an hour.
But I've been doing that for thelongest. I have a home health
care company call all about You Homehealth Care to where we owned by Daughter's
Design, where we provide aids intothe homes of people who are on the
Choices program or people who family membersare disabled or the elderly, and we

(20:41):
pay out from the beginning, wepaid our people over ten dollars an hour
when the member of wage was sevendollars an hour. Now we're paying them
fifteen through eighteen dollars an hour becauseit's very important to make sure people have
livable wages, very important, veryimportant, and now it's the thing which
is good for our community. Butwith that, then the prices go up.

(21:03):
But think about it. The pricesreally started going up when COVID came
out because everybody got their PPP loanmoney. Everybody was flushed with money.
So because the car dealerships knew youhad money, and because the runners knew
you had money, the landlords knewyou had money, they raised the prices.
And now that money is gone.But guess what, many people now
don't have their money anymore, sothey can't afford so the homeless population is

(21:25):
boomed. I heard a statistic thatMemphis between like two thousand and fifteen twenty
eighteen had over thirty thousand evictions.Thirty thousand. We led the country in
evictions and we're still high in evictions. So with these people being evicted,
where do they go? They cometo our houses, either your family members,

(21:47):
they have to come stay with you. Family will have to come stay
with me, or they go liveon the street. We opened up our
churches for them, or we openedup some of our homes we have for
them. We're getting some homes now. They have to be donated to us
so that we can provide homes tothe people who are on the streets who
we serve every day. We alreadyhave a list of those people. We're

(22:07):
going to put about thirty of themin homes. So there's thirty people going
to be out the street within thenext six months. Wow, amazing.
That's what we want to do becausewe attract the people by feeding people be
wise as a serpent, but houmlessas a dove. So we want to
get their attention through the food.But then we give them other services that
they need. And number one ofservices shelter. Yeah, that's is it

(22:36):
Mavelo's hierarchy of needs. Sometimes beforeyou can help somebody or get to an
area of their life that they're uncomfortabletalking about, you got to feed them
if they're hungry. You got tomeet the first need before you can help
with the next one. Remember firstthing I learned the why station elementary in
second grade the three basic needs food, clothes, and shelter. And what

(23:02):
was I moe, food got toeat. We have people that work in
government down where we serve the people. They come and get food from the
food truck and they have a jobevery day, do you hear me?
But money of them they can't affordlunch and they're hungry. So we don't
turn them down just because they workfor the government. We still feed them.

(23:26):
Wow. So we have the workingpoor many people can't afford. When
I was a school teacher starting off, I had nobody cooking for me.
So guess what my main meal was? Going to lunch at Meyroo's High School,
getting my lunch when I started offwith nothing, that was my main

(23:47):
meal. My principal, my sister, principal, mister andleroal McLain. I'll
never forget, he said, misterCandad, you act like you only got
a wife at home. He didn'tknow me and my wife were separated.
She went at home. So thatme at meil Rods was my main meal.
That was the only meal that Iwas really eating. Wow, and
I'm a school teacher. That wasthe main meal that I was eating.

(24:08):
And they'd been said man, youact like you don't have my wife and
house. I tell people my business, I said thirty years later. Yeah,
but she went at home and thatmeal with them three cookies, them
butter cookies and the milk. Carryme over. You know it's the post.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm stormy.Pastor Jerald Kiner is here with us

(24:29):
today. Thank you so much againfor coming by. You know, when
I was in school, I usedto be ashamed to go to the lunch
room because I had You know,there was these girls in my school that
they didn't eat in the lunch room, so they talked about the rest of
us that went in there. Wedidn't go in that because we wanted to
win it. That because we hadto you know what I'm saying, And
you know, I pray that theyounger people, now, if you're listening

(24:53):
to this show, don't make peopleashamed because of some thing they have to
do. You don't know what's goingon with them. I was riding behind
a truck today and the truck ofa van and it was smoking. Smoke
was coming out of the back,and I was thinking, man, we
need to get you know, thewhat were they used to do? Inspections.
That needs to come back. Iwas thinking that, and then I

(25:14):
thought, you know what, whoever'sdriving that van probably ain't driving it because
they because they won't to. They'reprobably driving it because they have to.
I was so poor even in collegethat a little going on college, I
would steal my own license plate soI wouldn't have to go through inspection and
pay that one hundred dollar because Icouldn't afford a hundred dollars for my license

(25:37):
plate. Wow, I would tearit off like somebody had ripped the number.
All drive around all through college becausewe didn't have money. Yeah,
do you hear me? There werethe days, man, I think we
all we all vans. Struggle isreal. We know what it's like to
struggle. That's why we should.I feel like I'm not gonna speak for
everybody else. I want to speakfor myself. I I feel like it's

(26:00):
important for us to give back tothese young folks. You know them.
You know what I tell them whenyou use me? Use me right,
Because a lot of times you'll tellyou a young person that they don't believe
you. But I won't make abeliever out of your use me if I
give you my phone number. Iwant you to call me, ask me
questions, talk to me, geton my nerves for hallelujah. But after

(26:22):
you use me, let somebody useyou. This is what I tell them.
That's the only thing I ask you. Got to come with us on
our next trip to R. Chrisbecause that's what I tell these young people
that we teach how to know.That's is that. My favorite is when
you all going to college and yougraduated, go back to one mound,

(26:47):
go back to these other hoods,raise up mentors some of these kids.
It's all. That's all you haveto pay me. Just go get one
because stormy, because somebody came forus. Look at where we are people
we blessed just what somebody else.Sometimes just one person can make a difference
medic difference on a whole nother ramp. So it doesn't have to be many

(27:10):
makes a difference. Girl, wehave the right person that God use that
person to become a messiah for thenever know. You never know, you
never know, you never know.That's why. Yeah, given is living,
Given is living. That's what it'sall about. That's what y'all doing
over there at Jesus People Church.They get it right. You get it

(27:32):
right. Church y'all over there doingthe work. I like that, and
it's a blessing to have you onthe show. It's a blessing to have
you here. Tell us about Daughtersof Zion, how people can reach you
for that and the organization that youhave that is it for any children?
You? Any any child, becauseall children should start investing right now.
Okay, So tell them how theycan get in touch with you. We

(27:56):
have that one number twenty four hoursa day. You can call nine O
one five seven zero three two twozero. There's nine O one five seven
zero three two two zero. That'sthe same number. This on the truck,
same number this on the truck.We try to make it universal because
we have so many services. Idon't want several different numbers. I want

(28:17):
to make it easy for you tobe able to get a blessing. Okay,
what's the number again? Nine onone five seven zero three two two
zero. Wow. Pretty awesome.I'm telling you, like I said,
the work that you're doing. Yougot any a thing coming up? The
New York trip, Yeah, lateJuly, we got that coming up.
So you need some help from thelisteners. I most depth of them that
want to give to you. Yeah, tell us, tell us what kind

(28:41):
of help you need. Again,we need mentors. If you want to
come to New York with us,okay, that'll be a blessing. If
you want to gus Doingnate and helpsponsor a student, that'll be a blessing.
So whatever God lays on your heartand one thing storm me because I'm
I'm so blessed in God from likeyou being a giver. I'm not a

(29:03):
beggar, you know. I don'ttry to take the opportunity to beg people.
I believe that if people who identifywith real and with the work you're
doing someone and the work that I'mdoing real, recognize real, you shouldn't
have to beg real people. Ididn't. I never called Ken needy.
He called me. Let me participatein this, Let me be a blessing

(29:27):
and we get more people like thatwill blow up. We will take over
the city. And look what we'redoing on a little bit of money.
And some of these organizations get millionsand they spend it all on themselves.
We don't spend a dime on salaries. All of the money goes back to
the community for the people. Soit's very very important to give to organizations

(29:51):
that are not abusing the funds,but are using the funds to elevate people
in our community, because we couldbe the next victims when somebody's hungry my
children. That doctor that was killedat walking with his wife at Saint Jude,
you know that was a tragedy.Them people killing him over dollars.

(30:11):
Don't even understand this man walking hiswife. He doesn't have a lot of
money on him. Nobody nobody hasa lot of money on them when they're
walking. But you're so desperate forfood or dope that you're going to kill
this man thinking that he has amillion dollars on him. So it's irrational.
So the rational among us we haveto do the logical thing, and
the logic thing is to give backinto the community. If you won't go

(30:36):
back, at least give back,at least give to the people who are
going back. Yeah, I wasfor a lot of people that watch the
movement. You know, I've heardstories where people didn't get a chance to
walk with doctor King, but theysent them money. Girl, they represented
somehow, it's real. They paidfor his way to get places and from

(30:56):
places and other people and they madeit happen. Yeah, so yeah,
I like that. If you won'tgo back, give back, Okay,
I love this, got it.It's the pulse. We're keeping our fingertips
on the pulse of our community.Thank you, Pastor Gerald Kina for coming
today. Thank you, thank you. We appreciate you, definitely appreciate the

(31:18):
work that you're doing in this community. And we're gonna keep you lifted up.
It's God's work you're doing. Youknow that. Though we're about to
work together. Let's do it.Let's do it all right. It is
the pulse. We're keeping our fingertipson the pulse of our community. We'll

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
