This month APA Compass explored the topic of race and environmental justice
including an interview with Julie Sze, environmental justice advocate,
Assistant Professor of American Studies at UC Davis and director of the
Environmental Justice Project for UC Davis’ John Muir Institute for the Environment.
The program will also include a live roundtable discussion with local
environmental justice activists Alan Hipolito, Chris Winter, Kevin
O'Dell & Marcelo Bonta. And as always another edition of the Angry
APA Minute, this month featuring hip hop artist Skim.
In February, APA Compass critically discussed the Clint Eastwood folk Gran Torino, which features Eastwood as a cranky old veteran living in a neighborhood with an influx of Hmong immigrant neighbors. Aslo, an interview with one of the film's stars, Hmong actor Bee Vang.
