Air date: 
Mon, 03/16/2015 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
A discussion on activism and what inspires or defeats us

Join Celeste and Cecil for a discussion about  activism and finding balance in our lives. 

The Trappist monk and social critic Thomas Merton o observed  “There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to destroys the fruitfulness of our own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.”

Robert Whitaker on the astonishing rise of mental illness in America

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 05/09/2011

 Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Robert Whitaker, author of Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in AmericaRobert Whitaker probed into clinical studies in prestigious scientific journals, some dating back more than 50 years. He noticed a shocking anomaly. Psychiatric drugs have repeatedly been shown to worsen mental illness, to say nothing of the risks of liver damage, weight gain, elevated cholesterol and blood sugar, and reduced cognitive function they entail. The reality, he says, is that, because no one knows what causes mental illness, there’s no cure or palliation to be found in these pills.

Robert Whitaker returns to Portland on May 13-14 to focus on alternatives to psychotropic drugs. He will facilitate a conversation with the audience and a panel of mental health providers and peers on the current national movement to move our mental health care to a more holistic, effective and humane system.

Location: First Unitarian Church of Portland

Time: ‎7:00PM Friday, May 13th; Saturday, May 14, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM 

 

"All Labor Has Dignity" -- the speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 05/02/2011

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Michael Honey about All Labor Has Dignity, a book of speeches by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on economic justice. Honey edited the book.

People forget that Dr. King was every bit as committed to economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. As we struggle with massive unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of our financial system, King’s prophetic writings and speeches underscore King’s relevance for today. Michael Honey's collection traces King’s economic dream, from lectures to unions in the 1960s to addresses during his Poor People’s Campaign, culminating with his momentous “Mountaintop” speech, delivered in support of striking black sanitation workers in Memphis.

Michael Honey is an educator who combines scholarship with civic engagement. He teaches African-American, civil rights and labor history and specializes in work on Martin Luther King, Jr. Honey holds the Fred T. and Dorothy G. Haley Endowed Professorship in the Humanities at the University of Washington, Tacoma (UWT) and previously served as the Harry Bridges Chair of Labor Studies for the University of Washington and as President of the Labor and Working-Class History Association.

Honey’s work is noted for his extensive use of oral history, deep archival research, and vibrant writing  style.

The devastation of foreclosure; what can be done

program date: 
Mon, 04/18/2011

 

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Nancie Koerber of the non-profit organization Good Grief America which works to fight foreclosure and to support our communities.

Housing was the vehicle that Wall Street used to drain the life out of America.  The result has caused record unemployment, foreclosures, homelessness and the unweaving of our community fiber.  All linked to this issue are increased suicides, divorces, bankruptcies, and small business failure.  Our community services such as food stamps, unemployment, foster care, homeless shelters and many others are over burdened and unable to meet the needs of struggling families. 

Nancie discusses what happens with foreclosure in Oregon, how individuals and families deal with the experience, how communities can help and what the future holds regarding this issue.

program date: 
Mon, 03/21/2011

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with former Oregon State Senator Avel Gordley about her new memoir Remembering the Power of Words: The Life of an Oregon Activist, Legislator and Public Servant

Avel Louise Gordly was elected to the Oregon State Senate in 1996, after she had served three terms in the House of Representatives, running on both Democratic and Republican ballots in each election. Throughout her career, she always insisted that the legislative process belongs to the People,  that it be open and transparent to constituents from every place in Oregon.

A native of Portland, daughter of a Union Pacific Pullman porter and a working mother active in women's organizations, Avel Louise Gordly is the first African-American woman elected to the Oregon Senate in the history of the state.

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in the Administration of Justice from Portland State University and completed the Program for Senior Executives at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

She is a Senior Fellow of the American Leadership Forum and has a long professional career including service as an Adult Parole and Probation Officer for the State of Oregon Corrections Division; as Director of Youth Services for the Urban League of Portland; as Community Liaison for the Multnomah County Health Department, where she worked on the County's emergency preparedness and health disparity issues.

Avel's career as a community leader and public servant includes Program Director of the House of Umoja, providing services to gang-impacted youth and families, and as Executive Director of the American Friends Service Committee, Portland office.

Avel is currently an Associate Professor in the Black Studies Department, Portland State University, where she has developed and teaches a course on Black leadership, public policy and community development.

Her memoir, “Remembering the Power of Words: The Life of an Oregon Activist, Legislator and Public Servant” was just published by the Oregon State University Press.

Throughout her career in public service, Avel has worked for environmental, economic and social justice; for family wage jobs in environmentally sound workplaces, for communities free of hate and full of diversity.

Senator Gordly is a recognized champion of support for mental health. She is a founder of the African American Mental Health Commission, and of the Oregon Mental Health Caucus. Her tireless efforts to address the stigma of mental illnesses, and as an advocate for mental health treatment played a key role in the passage of Senate Bill 1 (2005), mental health parity.

She continues to advocate for appropriate mental health treatment, the removal of the stigma associated with mental illness which acts as a barrier to effective treatment, and for the replacement of the Oregon State Hospital and the establishment of a statewide community-based treatment infrastructure as a top priority.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
