Some of those previous owners include the former Imperial Wizard of the KKK (that's the national leader of the Klan for the rest of us...)
Daryl is an African-American man who grew up in Chicago and around the world as an, "emabssy brat" (his words). When he returned to the States, Daryl began to see racism all around him, and found himself the target of racist threats and violence. Instead of becoming afraid and turning away, Daryl decided to ask some Klan members, in person, "how can you hate me when you don't even know me?"

program date: 
Mon, 12/05/2011

On October 18th, 2011, health care workers from Washington and Oregon left for a medical delegation to Gaza, hosted by the Gaza Community Mental Health Program. The purpose of the trip is to learn more about the effects of ongoing war and occupation on the health of the citizens of Gaza. Maxine Fookson, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner from Portland, is the Oregon PSR representative of this group.

Maxine Fookson will join KBOO host Jenka Soderberg at 11 am on Monday December 5th to report back on her trip to Gaza.

Maxine's blog post from October 22nd, begins:

"Today was the first of our health visits. From what I am understanding, health care is administered in a number of ways here. For those who have refugee status by virtue of having been displaced from their homes and land by Israel in either 1948 or 1967 the UN provides education (until 9th grade) and health care, including all vaccines, until age 3 yrs. I learned today that each of the doctors and nurses at the UNRWA Clinics see 100 patients a day. Tomorrow I will go there and see that system. And I am sure there will be plenty to say about that. One thing that is amazing is that Gaza has an immunization rate of 90% for the basic childhood vaccines. That is so unbelievable."

LIVE UPDATES: Building New Structures on K Street

Last night, Occupy K Street-DC erected a wooden structure, a "People's Pavilion," at their main encampment in McPherson Square. According to Occupiers, the structure will be used as a warm place (designed to be heated by a novel sustainable energy source: water bottles that collect and store solar heat) for General Assemblies, teach-ins, and other community building purposes.

They have also said that the structure represents the needs of the 99% who are being left houseless by economic inequality. The People' Pavilion is a symbol of all homes stolen by banks and corporate greed, right on K Street -- in front of the Wall Street lobbyists who buy the politicians on Capitol Hill. Or, as one Occupier said: Read

UPDATES: Portland Holds New Home

Last night, Portland Police used violent force to evict Shemanski Park. Photos and live footage show police in full riot gear aggressively taking down nonviolent protesters. Among other incidents, one 15 year old was smashed in the face with a baton. Undaunted, Occupiers took to the streets, routed lines of riot police, and marched on City Hall. As revelers joined in and the protest continued to grow, the march stopped downtown for a dance party and then returned to Shemanski to defend their new home while celebrating with more dancing and pizza. Proving that our determination cannot be halted, most police had left the scene and Occupy Portland continues to hold public space as of 9am EST (6am PST). Read More...

It Calls You Back

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 12/02/2011

Host Carlos Chavez interviews author, poet and activist Luis J Rodriguez. They discuss his new memoir, It Calls You Back: An Odyssey Through Love, Addiction, Revolutions, and Healing.

Luis J. Rodriguez has emerged as one of the leading Chicano writers in the country with fifteen published books in memoir, fiction, nonfiction, children's literature, and poetry. Luis' poetry has won a Poetry Center Book Award, a PEN Josephine Miles Literary Award, and a Paterson Poetry Book Prize, among others.

Luis is best known for the 1993 memoir of gang life, “Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.”. Now selling more than 400,000 copies, this book garnered a Carl Sandburg Literary Award, a Chicago Sun-Times Book Award, and was designated a New York Times Notable Book. Written as a cautionary tale for Luis' then 15-year-old son Ramiro—who had joined a Chicago gang—the memoir is popular among youth and teachers. One Los Angeles Public Library official said “Always Running” is the most checked out book in their vast library system—and also the most “stolen.” Despite its popularity, the American Library Association called “Always Running” one of the 100 most censored books in the United States

His latest book is the long-awaited sequel to “Always Running,” entitled “It Calls You Back: An Odyssey Through Love, Addiction, Revolutions, and Healing” (Touchstone Books/Simon & Schuster), released in the fall of 2011.

Luis is also known for helping start community organizations-like Chicago's Guild Complex, one of the largest literary arts organizations in the Midwest; Humboldt Park Teen Reach in Chicago; and Tia Chucha Press, one of this country's premier small presses. He is a founder of Youth Struggling for Survival, a Chicago-based not-for-profit working with gang and non-gang youth. He helped start Rock A Mole (rhymes with guacamole) Productions, which produces music/arts festivals, CDs, and films in Los Angeles. And he is co-founder of Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural—a bookstore, performance space and workshop center in the Northeast San Fernando Valley, which also sponsors the "Celebrating Words: Written, Performed & Sung" Literacy and Performance Festival. In addition, Luis is a renowned gang intervention specialist in Los Angeles, Chicago, and other cities as well as Mexico and Central America. His 2001 book “Hearts and Hands: Creating Community in Violent Times” (Seven Stories) summarizes three decades in this area.

Navajo elder Perry Charley talks about effects of uranium mining on the Navajo people

program date: 
Mon, 11/28/2011

 Roberta Hall hosts Navajo elder Perry Charley, Program Manager at the Uranium Education Program of the Dine Environmental Institute at Dine College in New Mexico. He talks about the effects of uranium mining on the Navajo people and issues of environmental justice.

Dine College's Uranium Education Program (UEP) is an empowerment program for Navajo Native Americans concerning radiation and environmental health issues arising from the legacy of former uranium mining/milling operations and other serious environmental impacts on the Navajo reservation. Uranium mining and milling has left large areas of the Navajo reservation contaminated with abandoned mines, mine waste and mill tailings and associated radiation. There are well-documented problems with lung cancer and silicosis in former Navajo uranium miners, and there is great concern among uranium millers and other Navajos who reside near contaminated areas about late effects of radiation exposure from these sources. There has been growing concerns over various environmental issues and their impacts to health and the environment.
