Natural Hair - A Do or a Don't in the Workplace?

Afros, braids, locks ... au naturel comes in many forms. But do those forms have a "place" in the workplace?

The question of "acceptable" hair in the workplace has been a controversial challenge for employees and employers alike.

The battle to determine if natural hairstyles promote culture, fashion or both has jumped from boardroom to courtroom.

TONIGHT at 7 pm on The Eavesdrop, the ladies of the Kitchen Table Collective will take a look at this barrier-to-entry Black community members face, in the workplace, as always with real conversation for real people.

Pursuing Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates and High Finance Carnivores: A conversation with Greg Palast

program date: 
Mon, 10/17/2011

 Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast blew the lid off voter fraud in 2000 and 2004 that threw the presidential elections into doubt. Greg has picked up the money trail again, following it to a corrupt link between Big Oil and High Finance that has produced record corporate profits whilecreating environmental disasters like the recent Gulf oil spill. This new story, captured in his latest book,Vulture's Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates, and High Finance Carnivores, reads like a pulp thriller as the Palast investigative team travels from Baku to the Arctic Circle in pursuit of this story.

Theresa Mitchell of Presswatch and Per Fagereng of Fight the Empire co-host a special program with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored to talk about the release of Censored 2012, which Celebrates 35 Years of Project Censored.

In the last 35 years, the so-called mainstream media have been co-opted into a propaganda machine for the transnational corporate power structure, which serves a US/NATO Military Industrial Media Empire instead of We the People.

Project Censored resists the goals of global empire at the expense of human rights, we resist top down managed news in favor of a truly free press, and we resist censorship in all its guises.
