Movie Moles on Free Angela and all political prisoners

program date: 
Mon, 09/23/2013
Movie Moles Denise Morris and Jan Haaken discuss Free Angela and All Political Prisoners, a documentary about the 1970-72 indictment and trial of the philosophy professor, communist party member, and Black activist Angela Davis, accused of complicity in a failed and fatal attempt to free Black Panther George Jackson. Director Shola Lynch calls her film a crime drama and a love story. Denise and Jan note the oddity of Lynch's decision to promote a romantic version of the relation between Davis and George Jackson, since it was the prosecution's story that cast her as a lovesick woman, a framing Davis resisted. 15:40 minutes (7.18 MB)

If By Chance, a science fiction novel, is D'Norgia Taylor's latest work.

D'Norgia Taylor writes science fiction for all ages and all kinds of people.  "A lot of it is about escape -- getting away from whatever the issues...that you want to escape from -- or to."  Her latest work, If By Chance, deals with a generational curse that besets a small Pacific Northwest community.  This community is plagued by tragedy, humiliation and outrage; so traumatized they keep their stories even to their graves.

Conversation with Mic Crenshaw, Jared Ball and Rosa Clemente, hosted by Paul Roland

Paul Roland and Mic Crenshaw talk with Jared Ball from Baltimore, Md. and Rosa Clemente from Amherst, Massachusetts. The program offers a critical perspective on the commemorations of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech." Dr. Ball said recently, "neither King's false heirs nor the presidency of false hopes would exist at all without first the assassination of King and then the perennial abuse of his history and image. These replacement events and leaders are fraudulaent stand-ins for a movement so well represented by King's focused stances against the intransigence of white supremacy, the vilence of capitalism at home and the imperialism it fosters abroad." Join us for a lively conversation!
