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!

Movie Moles on Fruitvale Station

program date: 
Mon, 08/26/2013

Movie Moles Denise Morris and Jan Haaken discuss Fruitvale Station, the dramatization of Oscar Grant's killing by Bay Area Rapid Transit guard Johannes Mehserle on New Years Eve 2008. They discuss some of the complexities of fictional films about real events, and suggest that director Ryan Coogler's film overcompensates for the otherwise negative portrayals of young Black men in mainstream media. They also consider the contrast between community intervention to defuse tense situations and the tendency of police to escalate violence, as well as the irony of appealing to the criminal injustice system for redress of grievances.

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.
