Let's talk about Race! Middle School Students Record their own Stories of Race

One teacher is using the power of audio storytelling to encourage courageous conversations around race with her students.

Barb Stonecypher has been an educator since 1995. She has been concentrating on equity and on understanding what equity means in her life while trying to apply it in her classroom. She says: “The success of my students have been the focus of my whole career.” Barb invited me to her classroom to teach audio storytellling to her students so they could record and edit their own story around race, racism and racial discrimination. This Friday, we will play the audio pieces produced by Barb's students and she will be live, in the studio, to discuss her dedication to equity.

Desiree Helleger: No Room on her own

Categories:
program:

program date: 
Wed, 06/20/2012

Desiree Hellegers is Co-Director of the Center for Social and Environmental Justice, Associate Chair and Associate Professor of English at Washington State University, Vancouver. She is an active member of various advocacy organizations and her writing has appeared in such publications as Counterpunch.
Her book "No Room of Her Own- Women's Stories of Homelessness, Life, Death, and Resistance" is an oral history collection and brings together interviews with fifteen women who share the common experience of homelessness. All the interviews were conducted in Seattle, Washington between 1991 and 2008, but the women's stories zigzag across the country. The narrators recount stories of growing up in the south at the tail end of Jim Crow, of growing up gay and Black in the Pacific Northwest in the 1960s, and of surviving childhood molestation in Harlan, Kentucky in the 1970s. The stories illuminate the part that gender roles play in ensnaring women in cycles of domestic abuse and homelessness. They speak to the physical stresses of homelessness, and the toll it takes on bodies already weakened by high blood pressure, strokes, sickle cell anemia, and epilepsy and the routine threats of physical violence that homeless women in particular encounter on the street. At the same time, however, the stories challenge liberal myths about homeless people, and homeless women in particular, as vulnerable and dependent people worthy perhaps of sympathy but judged to be socially disorganized, disaffiliated and disempowered.

The popularity of nail salons and beauty spas is very high. But how much of the beauty we buy is toxic? And what are the work conditions like behind the aroma-therapeutic fog?
A conversation with Lisa Fu, Program Director for the Californian Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative. She introduces us to the mostly immigrant women who work in the salons, to their work conditions and to the toxic substances both they and their customers are exposed to. We explore what can be done to improve that reality.
We also discuss the conditions in the local Aveda-branded Dosha salons and spas. Madelyn Elder, President of Communications Workers of America Local 7901, talks about violations of federal labor law and the response by the owner and management when workers decided to unionize. We also visit Aveda Beauty Schools.
