The Feds STAY F*cking with Black Liberation

It’s nothing new, we just have more data to prove it now: The Feds have intentionally and disproportionately targeted Black Lives Matter protesters and organizers in order to stop the Black liberation movement. This week Eboni and Dustin go all the way in analyzing the report and its similarities to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination and the assassination of Fred Hampton. Plus, we get into the drama surrounding Beyonce & Jay-Z’s Basquiat debacle, Dustin explains those damn milk crates to Eboni, and the absolute dumpster fire of damning testimony about R. Kelly and Aaliyah during the first week of trial for R. Kelly.Follow Eboni K. Williams on IG or TW, and Dustin Ross on IG or TW Holding Court with Eboni K.

Sidebar: Trump Folks Lose Power and Lose Their Minds!

New episodes of Holding Court return January 13th, but we need to sidebar for a minute about what happened this week....It is the day after Black Americans helped the Democrats take back control of the Senate by winning both Senate seats in Georgia including the election of Rev. Raphael Warnock as the first Black Senator elected from that former slaveholder state.  It is the day after the United States Congress, despite a violent insurrection by a mob of Trump loyalists, confirmed the electoral victory of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States, and the historic election of the first Black Woman as Vice President, Kamala Harris. So I wanted to connect with you today dear listeners and rejoice that today is a new day even while the work today and everyday from now on continues to make law & order mean justice for everyone not just the privileged.Follow Eboni K.

New Year Mailbag and Flashback to 2020 via 1992

New episodes return January 13th, but in the meantime we've got a new mailbag question from a "Daddy" who wants to know if he needs a lawyer for his son. We also revisit a mailbag question about "Separated" vs. married from episode #9. Then we revisit the main segment of episode #5, an important discussion from last year when we flashed back to the first viral video of a brutal police encounter with a Black man when Rodney King was beaten in 1991, and the police who beat him were tried and acquitted in 1992 triggering an uprising. The 2020 viral video of the brutal killing of George Floyd also ignited an uprising, and the reckoning must confront familiar narratives from leaders and media that contribute to the devaluation of Black Lives.Follow Eboni K.

Introducing: Holding Court

I’m Eboni K. Williams, an attorney, TV news anchor, and former public defense attorney. I was raised by a single mother. We were poor, we struggled but we strived and she taught me, inspired me and instilled in me a sense of justice through perseverance, through knowledge! I worked and was accepted to college at 16, then I went to law school. Now I want to teach, to inspire.  I believe we are a nation of laws, but the system is rigged and we must work to restore the promise of justice for all. This show isn’t about the law as much as it’s about how the law impacts our lives, and what we need to know to protect and empower ourselves.  And one more thing, I’ve got the most amazing, smart, sexy co-host Dustin Ross. Y’all know him from The Friend Zone. On this show we’re going to get real, get informed, get going and of course have a little fun along the way. Come join us and let’s hold court!“It makes no sense, it doesn’t fit, you must acquit” - Johnny Cochran clip courtesy CNN.“You go down there looking for justice, that’s what you find, ‘just us.’” - Richard Pryor clip courtesy Rhino Entertainment / Warner Music.Music - Bitter Sweet by Tilden Parc courtesy Epidemic Sound.
