Remembering Stonewall, a documentary by David Isay
Remembering Stonewall by David Isay

KBOO presents our annual broadcast of "Remembering Stonewall," which aired first on the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in 1989.

On Friday, June 27, 1969, eight officers from the public morals section of the first division New York City Police Department pulled up in front of the Stonewall Inn, one of the city's largest and most popular gay bars.

At the time, the vice squad routinely raided gay bars. Patrons always complied with the police, frightened by the prospect of being identified in the newspaper. But this particular Friday night was different. It sparked a revolution, and a hidden subculture was transformed into a vibrant political movement.

Meghan Murphy on Elliot Rodger, Misogyny and Violence Against Women

On May 23 in Isla Vista, California, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger murdered six people and wounded 13 more. Rodger, in his blog as well as on Youtube, cited women for not giving him attention, sex and love as motivation for his attack. Most media outlets have talked up what happened as the act of a deranged young man. Yet the tragedy has also prompted a larger conversation about male entitlement in a world where women face escalating threats of rape and violence, not to mention persistent gender disparities in work, education and civil society, each day.

We hear an episode of Sea Change Radio featuring a wild discussion with Jason Mark, the editor of Earth Island Journal, as we honor the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Wilderness Act of 1964. Mark shares his misgivings about what he views to be a technological threat to some of nature's most mysterious spots and how much of our wild is already pretty tame. Then, he and host Alex Wise delve into conservation policy and talk about the surprising number of bipartisan conservation bills that unsurprisingly have not yet been passed by Congress.
