The KBOO Youth Collective worked for nine weeks this fall with a SUN School Class at Clear Creek Middle School. We created these two radio pieces, one on The Economy, and one on Bullying. This is the version that was broadcast on The Underground.
The SUN School Radio Class students were Andrew, Kiara, Kyler, Larissa, Lila, Madison, Omar , Rachel , Sara, and Teo. Thanks to Patti Haack for her help.
Bill Resnick talks with Angela McWhinney, an organizer with We Are Oregon, and Terran Connolly, with Unsettle Portland. Earlier this month Angela and Terran's organizations helped stand up to foreclosures with homeowners. They articulate a vision of community control over housing and land, and an economy not dominated by financial prorities.
Ten Years That Shook the City: San Francisco 1968-78 is A collection of first-person and historical essays spans the people’s history of San Francisco in the tumultuous decade from 1968, the year of the San Francisco State College strike, to 1978 and the twin traumas of the Jonestown massacre and the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. This volume provides a broad look at the diverse ways those ten years shaped the world we live in today. From community gardening to environmental justice, gay rights and other identity-based social movements, anti-gentrification efforts, neighborhood arts programs and more, many of the initiatives whose origins are described here have taken root and spread far beyond San Francisco.
