Tune in all day Thursday for in-depth coverage on Haiti

KBOO FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI
February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.

Membership Drive Special: One Year Later – Where Do We Go From Here?
It’s been one year since the inauguration of President Barack Obama. How have progressive goals and proposals fared under his administration? Where do progressives go from here? What’s the future of activism on issues such as ending the wars and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq? What about healthcare, saving the economy, the environment, trade policy, corporate domination, and education?
As Bill Moyers has said about the U.S., ”We are a very crippled giant suffering from self inflicted wounds that if we do not treat and heal, will in fact bring us to our knees and ultimately to our doom. We are close to losing the moral, financial, economic muscle and wisdom that makes a big nation a great nation.”

Le Guin, Alan Moore, Michael Moorcock, and Lewis Shiner as well as young and emerging writers in a series of interviews that explore fiction's deeply political roots.

Violence Against Sex Workers
William Madden, Rogelio Guangelista, Eric Garcia

Violence against sex-workers happens daily and often goes unreported and unaddressed. Due to the nature of the profession, the growing population of sex-workers in Portland is forced to live outside the
everyday awareness of most residents. Because a blind eye is often turned towards this population it is difficult to provide care for survivors of violence and to prevent future attacks. This segment
highlights the Sex-Worker Outreach Coalition (SWOC) and Portland’s Bad
Date Line.

The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History

program date: 
Fri, 10/08/2010

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with historian Jill Lepore about her new book, "The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History."

Jill Lepore, Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer, offers a wry and bemused look at American history according to the far right, from the "rant heard round the world," which launched the Tea Party, to the Texas School Board's adoption of a social-studies curriculum that teaches that the United States was established as a Christian nation. The Whites of Their Eyes reveals that the far right has embraced a narrative about America's founding that is not only a fable but is also, finally, a variety of fundamentalism--anti-intellectual, antihistorical, and dangerously antipluralist.

Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper '41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at the New Yorker. Her books include New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery, and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-Century Manhattan, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; and The Name of War: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity, winner of the Bancroft Prize.

Moderator: Rebecca Nay.

Speaking in opposition to the changes: Daniel Flessas

Production note about this audio from the uploader Kathleen Stephenson: I did not have a recorded CD of this program, so I compiled the audio for this program from the KBOO air check, which is collected in segments. This audio was originally in four segments, which I strung together without editing. The program has a slight break of a second or two of missing audio between the segments. At each of those points you might notice a slight disconnect in what the speaker is saying because a second or two of audio was not captured by our automated air check.
