I think we were all shocked andnsurprised to see that it will be close to 20 miles from thenfuneral home to his final resting place in cave Hill.nA cemetery, so for 20 miles, I don’t think we ever expectednto see. People lined up toe to toe fromnall different races, nationalities, ages, religions,nsocial economic groups. You can see the sidewalk so for 20nmiles we saw lines and minds of people justnbathing saying, thank you, thank you, smiling they hit banners.

And you know, I was surprisednmyself I knew he was loved and revered all over the world, butnI had no idea was a 100,000 people in the end they werenmemory latch for me because I don’t remember people talk to me that day Indon’t remember what is going on the whole entire weekend.nFirst I’d like to say. I want to give a shout out tonJonathan the cue, the producer and the director Grant Shelbynwho invited need to be a part of his projects for city ofnRaleigh because it was the first time that I was able tonsee footage that was going on during a time that was myndarkest hour. So thing I forgot I was able to watching thenfilm. I was able to actually watch this whole thing unfoldnduring the darkest. My doctors, our personnel. >> She did you know he’s anlarger than life figure. One thing I like about thisndocumentary is it backs it all the way up to where he learnednhis values and core principles, what did he learn growing up innthat pink House from family and the greater community. Hisnhometown. >> Well my my grandmother, mynmother and my grand pop pop of cash, they taught him love himnhonor and respect and loyalty and if they’re good people I innthe documentary, the and the film you’ll see that my dad’snneighbors, I in my day, it was a babysitter haha it was soncool.

Good morning to you know Seanneven before this earthquake hit you’re known for yournhumanitarian work but I was there covering that earthquakenin and I know you can’t help but be moved when you saw whatnhappened. Why did you decide to dedicate your attention to thisnthis humanitarian crisis. >> It’s really in so many waysnit was an accident the intention. What originally wasnto stand Haiti for about 2 weeks. I’ve never been herenbefore, but I’ve spoken to some medical leaders there. Bothnwith the Haitian Ministry of health and also Paul farmernwho’s been in Haiti for 25 years to ask what the immediatenneeds work. We were able to again if I 350,000 vials ofnmorphine yeah, and our notion was tondistribute that working through the years they had no interestnin this big medications from traumatic injuries that perhapsnand to distribute those are bad 2 week period and younunderstand. 11 years. >> Don let me bring you innhere, you know, we showed this video up at the beginning ofnthe interview here and I think we all remember when itnhappened and people rushed in to help, but sometimes younworry for a lot of people kind of out of sight out of mind.nWhat are you hoping people get from this documentary. Why didnyou do join in. >> Yeah the the think that wasnthe real inception of this idea even go down there right nownand Sean a bit before the earthquake and then after itnhappened, I saw him on newscast talking about what he wasnseeing on the ground there and in the days and weeks after thenearthquake and I reached out and said you need somebody tonhelp document this to to try to get clipped out to newsnnetworks just to keep it in peoples eyes and that wasnreally how it started for for me and didn’t look we weren’t reallynthinking about making a documentary it was just thatnthat urgency to get things out so that people could know whatnwas happening there. >> And for infection when younare at first kind of reluctant to turn this in into andocumentary how come. >> Well, it’s it’s a trickynthing because you you know there’s the awkward space tonbeing in essence part of the subject of it. And there’s also you know thenthe way that you are most effective is in it, especiallynin the immediate disaster response does not alwaysninclude, I’m the kind of civility thatnyou might want to portray you see you have to when you havenpeople that you’re negotiating with it. They see a cameranpresent they’re going to quit that ends in space so it was,nyou know, it’s I was very cautious is why John saysnsomebody I knew and trusted not only as a person, but as thenfilmmakers if at some point this was going to represent annarchive of period of time and establish Corps, I wanted tonmake sure was in on instant. >> Well, I think they know yournheart and I think that’s going to be very clear when peoplensee this documentary that’s right Diane. Thank you so muchnSean thank you and thanks for the work you’ve been doing. >> Well at the forefront of thenpandemic as well, with course, and we really appreciate. >> Our next guest is an NBAnlegend a 6 time champion and the league’s all-time scoringnleader but Kareem abdul-jabbar is legacy extends far beyondnbasketball for decades. >> His father change and set upnto social to in just a sour cream is the executive producernand narrator of a new special on the History Channel it’sntitled fight the power the movements that changed America,nit recounts pivotal moments, including some that changednKareem himself. >> One thing that was veryninstrumental in me having or compassion and trying to understand what’sngoing on beyond my experience had to do with the murder ofnMatthew Shepard and 1998. There he was tortured and leftnto die out in the freezing cold because he was and it’s thensame as what happened with the >> Marie is with us thisnmorning, good morning kareen tell. morning. Your I’m doing I’mndoing great. We’re excited to talk to about this because thisnthis whole docu series really covers a major movements andnand I’m wondering if it there is a threat a common trend younsee through them. Movements that have impacted this countrynthrough history. >> Well, I think the whole idea protest isnprobably part of our DNA as Americans because our country startednbecause we had a very serious. The problem with being unfairly taxed for tea and somenpeople thought they would do the right thing and throw a teaninto Boston Harbor. And that’s how we got started and ended upnwith us having our own public. And it’s part of who we are and on Earth. I think the whole thing has tondo with the fact that no matter your little Mitch might be fornyour little at some point what people are going to decide that you don’t that you. It’s it’snworks for everybody S getting immigrant that has come to thisncountry that they had a tough time for. So we have tonunderstand why people protest and make sure that we do not let the oppression big becomenwhat are the rule of law that that should not be part of thenrule book. >> You know Kareem you a lot ofnfolks may not know that before you are a professionalnbasketball player. You have a great interest in journalism.nYou you actually attended a press conference in 19 64 therenin Harlem with doctor Martin Luther King junior, how didnthat press conference change you. >> Well, you know I prior tonthat press conference I had never really. I was kind of critical ofndoctor King because of the fact that see more people be King and younknow, attacked with dogs to all ofnthe cars of the civil rights. You know when you see somethingnlike that. You want to retaliate if younwant to do something to to people who do that to you and andoctor King understood how MR. Darby used the the boy in tactics of thenoppressor to embarrass the impressive and totally disarm thenoppressor and the person to deal with as the NBA. Ngo that that is the wisestncourse for black American scope we could we could not have anninsurrection and you know just fight off all people back tonyou know saw that. >> The owner of the South.nBut it affects all right. Yeah, fascinating documentary,nlet’s switch gears just for a moment while we have you a lotnof people of the Supreme Court is currently looking at whethernstudent athletes should be compensated for playing sportsnat the collegiate level what’s your take on that. >> I think that’s too that theynshould be compensated I will think that you know we have tonmake them wealthy. But I think that this you get some type ofncompetition be compensation for me because so they do a greatndeal for the university. So the people universities getnthis one up a lot of money a move that has supported allnwomen’s sports. It is done or you know college sports is a isna money-making machine and the people who take all the riskndon’t get any of the benefit and they I think thatnparticipate will be poor. I may not make it will be justnmake it so maybe they can get a nice apartment on them. But a down payment on a car ornsomething like that. interview, Charlie Brown andnthe peanuts gang has been a part of our lives for more thann70 years. >> Yeah, the new documentarynwho are you Charlie Brown offers an in-depth look at thenmind behind it all Charles Scholz better known to hisnfriends. >> And family as Sparky anspecial blends a brand new cartoon with interviews from anlist celebrities, including the biggest peanuts fan, we know. He was living a quiet life. >> He built the world aroundnhimself that was filled with the things he had loved sincenhe was a kid. Like a skating rink and a baseball field. >> Even as successful as henwas. I don’t know that he got thenfull depth. The love and devotion people had to him in those characters. >> I’m Jane shows Charles Shulznwidow and the founder of the Charles and chills Museum andnresearch center joining us now this morning, good morning.nJeanne. >> Good morning. Allan, all ofnyou morning, good to be here. Well, thank you for being herencongratulations. >> On this new special. Itnreally is a look into and that I think a lot of people mightnbe surprised to find out the things that this special ofnreveals what we what do you think people will be mostnsurprised about when they watch this. >> Maybe his humility becausenwhen you look at 50 years of what he’s done and how popularnthis. The characters are and how well distributed a well known theynare drought the world just how what sort of a quiet. Internalnman he he himself was. >> I think this is so cool.nI didn’t realize a lot of people may not realize that hencreated his own little universe me at a compound with all thenthings he loved baseball field, the hockey rink cafes studio,nwhat made him decide to do that. >> I think it happenedngradually. The ice Arena, he and his wife and enjoyednskating. The ice Arena close down his wife said why don’t wenbuild one. That happened then extra piecenof land. Charlie Brown plays baseball the arena, people lovenplaying baseball, so it all just happened a little bit at antime and just you built a we don’t the world, but you nownlook at home. >> And Jeanne, I imagine whennyou dedicate your life to to this world, you know, there’snthere’s kind of an inspiration that goes back and forth.nSo is Charlie Brown inspired by Charles or vice versa them. >> Probably Charlie Brown isninspired by Charles Shelton T put everything he knew inneverything he knew and all the people he knew into the comicnstrip. And some kind of and transformed way so it’s notnand it’s not a direct but you might write if you are writingna biography. But it’s it’s a it’s an interpretation. >> Jeanne children’s books comenand go but peanuts somehow has stayed relevant a decade afterndecade, sparking drew his last comic strip in 2000 and here wenare more than 20 years later, what is it about the peanutsncharacters you think that is so lasting. >> Well, I think it’s becausenthey are like all of us and I think even in what has happenednin the last 20 years in the last 50 years. People are stillnthe same and people in countries are all the same theynall they all have sibling rivalry they all havenconflicts with their parents they have problems at schoolnthey have problems on the playground and peanuts is ancomfort to those people because it expresses those anxietiesnand fears and joys and so it’s it’s comforting to people andnthat’s why it’s lasted. >> In fact you’ve got 3 newnpeanuts holiday specials that the Snoopy show which is onnApple TV plus. I got the energy to sit in that studio with younand with with sparking a couple of times. And I’d love to seenthat it’s still the same, but what what do you miss mostnabout him. >> I think that I always wishnthat I had his wisdom. Beside me when certain things happennand I just I try to tap into what I think you would think sonthat I represent him well and and cannbe as rough. Typically calm as he was about things as he wentnthrough life. >> Well now you have been anwonderful keeper of the legacy Jean, thank you so much fornjoining us this morning. We really appreciate it who arenhuge, thank you Al. Thank you. You who are you Charlie Brownnstreaming now on Apple TV plus. Earnhardt junior in 26 careernvictories including the 2004. >> And 2014 Daytona 500 so nownhe’s back with the second season of the show lostnspeedways it is part history lesson part treasure hunt andndeal sets out in search of long abandoned racetracks in a questnto uncover what could be what used to be when. >> You’re talking about thenearly automobile and how fast, they’re advancing. Sir, MalcolmnCampbell’s car is literally like an airplane without wings,nyou know just on wheels and to think of him ripping down wherenwe’re walking right now 20300 miles per hour is sheerninsanity. >> You imagine that is so coolnand Bill joins us now live bill I got to say this is got tonfeel like it’s almost like a time machine for you and I knownyou’ve done this before. >> Yeah, I love going aroundnthe country and trying to find abandoned racetracks and why while they are banned andnwhat’s their story and what they meant to those communitiesnwhen they were thriving the best part about it for menis really put boots on the ground and fight and evidencenof those tracks and we find some pretty cool stuffnand our huts and again like we did talk to some legends in ournsport, we get to talk to buy a bunch of people in thesencommunities where these tracks existed and they’re everywherenwe have a mask that we’ve all they’re working on for over andecade of over 2000 abandon tracks on and the United Statesnthat and that there’s still evidence of the actual racingncircuit on the property said those are the ones we’re mostninterested in not the tracks that are redeveloped or and no longer there we look fornsomething that we can show you tangible evidence of thensurface or the guard rail or something that would let younknow that there was a racetrack there. The stories that comenwith those tracks are just amazing season. 2 is a big stepnup from season one season was great we had a lot of greatnsuccess with that, but we really improved on ournproduction and editing everything storytelling allnthat was much better for season 2 for you’ve certainly seennhundreds of racetracks other any of us Cup stuck with younthe most well going to Myrtle BeachnSouth Carolina in season 2 was pretty personal because Inraised that track and they just close that race track fornredevelopment at the end of 2020 so that was very fresh fornthe community. So when we talk to people that spent a lot ofntime there either watching races or racing at thenracetrack you can sail and their emotions that it’s veryndifficult for them to see the track go and I’m going to Texasnworld Speedway so most of the law speed ways that we find andntalk about and showcase on the show are small has mildernracetracks but as you see Texas world Speedway is a to Maonwhile Speedway there’s no other 2 mile superspeedway thatnexists. That’s a loss Speedway abandoned that exist in thenUnited States is a really amazing visual when we walkednup on top of the grandstands and looked out over Texas worldnSpeedway dollars takes takes your breath, and they needednall of a million questions pop into your mind like how didnthis place not survive. What what happened here and wenuncover that we really do we get to the bottom of just hownclose Texas world Speedway came to making it we might still benracing there today. It’s not for just a few circumstancesngoing the other way. >> And so so down here you cannout of the race game now for 3 years are actually activelynracing your color, your NBC Alice analysts covering thentrack. But did you sometimes think you know I get back Inlike to do this. >> Every day haha I I feel 46 years old and annand that there are a lot of guys that are still racing atnthis age and still competitive and I still feel like that Inhave of some unfinished business and there’s a littlenbit. There’s that little bit and youndollars wonders it is if you walked away to San there if younretire from driving full time to say not probably alwaysnwonder about that but use that excitement for driving, I usenthe fact that I miss it I use that in the broadcast, you knownI want to be out there. I think that energy is is good for thenbroadcast. What I see something happening on the track I getnexcited about it. I want to be in that battle, thinking aboutnwhat that drivers dealing with and how much fun, he’s haven’tnand I think that helps my my work in the boos as an analystnsaid. I don’t think I don’t think yeah pretty much 99% surenthat I’ll never go back to full-time dry. But those thatnwant to. >> World and Gail maybe yeahntell us hang I hang on to that. >> That desire to do it.nI hang on to it because I think hang helps me in the bays Indon’t ever want to be in a position in my life were Indon’t want to be driving a race car. Yeah, even if I’m notndriving a car full time always want that passion for it to benpart of me. >> All right so we try to easenhis head of the Daytona it sounds like a and congrats onnthe new baby girl by the way has a new baby all thank you. >> Yeah, we all right, thanksnso much for joining us.

Also took the matter isnthat your daylight savings that’s a good time to go fornthe smoke alarms and carbon monoxide when I talked aboutnthat and we’ll be right back. Bauer has a list of must havesnto make sure you and your family are prepared and annunexpected emergence good morning chill. >> Good morning, ladies nice tonsee you in okay, you’re going to show us. >> What we need in our home andnin our cars right. Right because you know this isnthe time of year when people are making resolutions andnthey’re thinking about ways to get organize what part of thatnshould be is my family prepared in case something shouldnhappen. So let’s take a look at what you need the next time outnon the road. >> So here are the things thatnare important to keep in the front area of your car and yourncenter console want to make sure you have a tool like this.nThis is bizarre and country your seat belt because youncan’t buckle as well as breakthrough glass if you’rentrapped and then in your glove box a couple other things younshould have on hand to make sure that you have a smallnfirst aid kit make sure you have additional phone chargernwith people. You have a small hand cranknflashlight, you also need to have some key things in thenback of your car, so let me show you what those are. >> I like to keep the back ofnmy car organize with a duffel bag like this one and here arenthe essential as I always have on hand to start out with mynjumper cables and extra A comprehensive first aid kit. A couple of different kinds ofnlights are important so in all weather flashlight make surenthat you check those batteries, but also an emergency lightnlike this let’s other car see you in the dark those are greatnbecause the magnetic. These emergency thermal blankets andnrain ponchos you can usually find those outdoor stores.nThey don’t take up a lot of prove that they’re really greatnin case you need them. A pair of gloves some duct tape andnthen don’t forget about some extra snacks. A bottle of water if you happennto travel with your pet, sick, sure you include somendoctors. >> I just love it, you knownwhat all that was some information now you’ve taken usninside the home where you can get to everything we neednstarting with fire safety. >> And this is so importantneverybody because I know you probably have on your radar,nlet’s make sure we check our batteries and our smokendetectors but here’s what a lot of people don’t know thendetector them sell the unit only have a 10 year shelf life.nSo if you’ve lived in the same hot meals for 15 years and allnyou’re doing is continually charging batteries, you cannstill have a faulty unit to make sure you’re charging ornyou’re replacing the unit every 10 years and the batteriesnregularly, same of carbon monoxide detectors thoughnshould be located on all levels of your home and then in casenyou should need to put out a small fire make sure you havenfire extinguishers, they have fire extinguishers now for anspecific areas of the home. So that also makes them anlittle bit lighter and easier to manage, especially one mightnwant to keep under the safe in your kitchen. I like to writenthe date on those extinguishers, so that you knownwhen we put it in most of these have a kind of shelf life of 6nto 12 years.
