Let's talk about Race! Middle School Students Record their own Stories of Race

One teacher is using the power of audio storytelling to encourage courageous conversations around race with her students.

Barb Stonecypher has been an educator since 1995. She has been concentrating on equity and on understanding what equity means in her life while trying to apply it in her classroom. She says: “The success of my students have been the focus of my whole career.” Barb invited me to her classroom to teach audio storytellling to her students so they could record and edit their own story around race, racism and racial discrimination. This Friday, we will play the audio pieces produced by Barb's students and she will be live, in the studio, to discuss her dedication to equity.

What Is Feminism Anyway?

program date: 
Fri, 06/19/2009

Bridget B. here and I'm your host for this edition of Bread and Roses on KBOO 90.7FM.  Listen in as I talk about Feminism with references from key voices from the feminist movement, including Gloria from All In The Family, Gloria Steinem and Rebecca Walker.

Yes, this will be my last show with Bread & Roses and I wouldn't have come this far in producing shows like this had it not been for the wonderful opportunities to create radio with the help of this collective.  I'll still be on KBOO every other Saturday night from 7pm - 10pm hosting an Evening of Afrotainment and will continue to produce public affairs pieces for either podcasting or airing on other programs.  Send me an email and let me know if you'd like to be added to the email list for future announcements on my shows.

The Importance of Mother's Day

program: 
Bread and Roses
program date: 
Thu, 05/07/2009

Bridget B. here, and this edition of Bread & Roses was all about The Importance of Mother's Day; it's actual meaning and how you can get involved to make a difference. Given that this show fell right before Mother's Day, or on Mother's Day in other countries, I wanted to bring to your attention the what, why, when and by whom Mother's Day was conceived, what it has become over time and what you can do to re-direct this day back towards its original meaning.

During the show and in the midst of our membership drive, I shared the "Mother's Day Proclamation" as recited by some famous female actors and activists including Gloria Steinem, I included some information on what other countries do on their designated holiday and talked with my guest, Martha Shelley, one of the members and coordinators for CodePink here in Portland.  Our conversation included this weekend's events here in Portland and the rally in Washington, DC.

I also aired the audio from the Standing Women video clip, with a slight edit, on what they intend to do this coming Mother's Day.  So don't forget Mother's Day is scheduled for May 10, 2009 here in the US and there is a greater meaning to the day.

Many thanks to our Bread and Roses listeners, and remember, we're on every Friday on KBOO 90.7FM from 6pm - 7pm.

Ciao
