- KBOO Radio on the Angola 3: Interviewing law professor Angela A. Allen-Bell and Everett R. H. Thompson of Amnesty Intl. (caution: frameset!)
On Tuesday May 29th, Albert Woodfox of the Angola 3 began a three day hearing before the US District Court in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, regarding discrimination in the selection of the grand jury foreman in Woodfox's 1998 retrial. Prof. Angela Allen-Bell wrote an article in the Spring 2012 issue of the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly, entitled 'Perception Profiling & Prolonged Solitary Confinement Viewed Through the Lens of the Angola 3 Case: When Prison Officials Become Judges, Judges Become Visually Challenged and Justice Become Legally Blind.' On April 17, 2012 Amnesty International delivered a 67,000 signature petition to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's office, demanding Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace's immediate release from solitary confinement. Governor Jindal refused to meet with the delegation. A new AI petition has been launched in response.

- One World, One Wave: KBOO’s Sunday shows go around the world in 390 minutes
"The charter for KBOO, Portland’s left-of-the-dial community radio station, vows to use its frequency to fill needs that other media doesn’t, bringing content to underserved groups. Tune in to KBOO anytime and you’ll hear that mission in action, but the signal is strongest on Sundays, when DJs from all over the world bring their records to the station.
"Niche music genres—klezmer, Persian pop and Tejano among them—are broadcast to sometimes isolated communities, creating a connection between their homeland and their adopted home. WW wanted to meet the people behind the voices to learn about their shows and get recommendations for what every Portlander should be hearing."

- Thanks, KBOO Community Radio!
"Kudos to Jennifer Kemp, a volunteer at KBOO Community Radio and the relaxed, smiling person on the left in this picture. Jennifer recently interviewed me about Blue Thread. She escorted me into an intimidating techno-studio (can you detect anxiety here?), put me at my ease (no small task), asked thought-provoking questions, and edited the tape for KBOO’s half-hour show about books, “Between the Covers.”
Jennifer Kemp interviewed her on May 24. Blue Thread Blog, June 13, 2012
