SiriusXM’s Joe Madison Ends Months-Long Hunger Strike
Madison ended his months-long hunger strike after Senate Democrats failed to pass a bill that would strengthen voting rights laws.
SiriusXM radio host Joe Madison ended his months-long hunger strike after Senate Democrats failed to pass a bill that would strengthen voting rights laws.
The “Black Eagle” started his protest more than weeks before Thanksgiving and lasted a total of 74 days in his attempts to bring awareness to voting rights legislation.
“A hunger strike is a nonviolent protest that is both political and moral,” said Madison. “It (hunger strike) states to those in power that an individual is willing to sacrifice their life, their health, for calls bigger than themselves.”
Madison said when he began the hunger strike back on Nov. 8, he remembered the words of the late Howard University professor, Ron Walters as motivation for his advocacy.
“He once stated that the difference between a moment and a movement is sacrifice. All movements require sacrifice. And that’s when I decided this was a movement that is going to require a sacrifice for us all.”
During an interview with fellow satellite broadcaster, Sway Calloway, Madison revealed that he had lost 25 pounds.
“The mantra of my show has always been after all the talking is done; each individual has to ask themselves the question: what are you going to do about it? Because everybody can do something,” Madison said.
