Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 02/05/2014
This morning, hundreds of students walked out of six Portland High Schools in solidarity with the Portland Association of Teachers' strike vote. The PAT reached an impasse in contract negotiations with the Portland Public Schools board on November 20, and the two sides have spent hundreds of hours in mediation since then over issues such as class sizes, salary increases and early retirement incentives. The 2900-member PAT will vote on whether to strike tonight at 7:00 pm at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Today's walkouts were organized by the Portland Student Union. KBOO's Jamie Partridge was on the scene at both Jefferson High School in North Portland and Cleveland High School in Southeast. 5:59 minutes (5.47 MB)

Robert King Interview

program: 
Between Us
program date: 
Fri, 01/31/2014
Robert King, Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace have been made famous by their treatment at the infamous Angola State Prison in Angola, Louisiana.  Named for a former slave plantation, the prison, according to Mr. King; the only member of the Angola Three both alive and free, holds the record for keeping someone in solitary confinement.  In the case of Mr. Woodfox, he's spent 23 hours a day in a 6x9 foot cell for 41 years.  Don Merrill talks with Robert King about the necessity to define oneself, the coming to terms with bitterness and why the bigger story isn't about the three men themselves, but the movement to end unlawful solitary confinement.
