50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?
50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  On a hot August day in 1963 over 200,000 people gathered on the Washington Mall to declare their commitment to social and economic justice and demand the federal government take action to guarantee the civil rights of all citizens.

As Oregonians join people throughout the nation to commemorate this event, we pause and ask, why are the gains of the civil rights movement being dismantled?  What is the clarion call to justice for our generation?  What lessons can we learn from the victories and failures of the civil right struggles of the 1950s and 1960s?

Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

Host Celeste Carey interviews Ediberto Román: author of Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

In Those Damned Immigrants, Ediberto Román takes on critics of Latina/o immigration, drawing on empirical evidence to refute charges of links between immigration and crime, economic downfall, and a weakening of Anglo culture. Román utilizes government statistics, economic data, historical records, and social science research to provide a counter-narrative to what he argues is a largely one-sided public discourse on Latino/a immigration.

Life After Prison: Crime and Punishment in the US
Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Sabine Heinlein about her book "Among Murderers: Life After Prison."

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Sabine Heinlein about her book "Among Murderers: Life After Prison."

What is it like for a convicted murderer who has spent decades behind bars to suddenly find himself released into a world he barely recognizes? What is it like to start over from nothing? How does it feel to bear the shame of having killed someone? What constitutes successful rehabilitation? How does someone face the prospect of rejoining society with the guilt and shame of having taken taken another person’s life.

Declaration of Independence: A hindrance or roadmap for a more democratic society?

In 1776 a group of men debated and signed a document which listed their greivances with the King of England  and the reasons why they declared independence from Great Britiain.  As the United States of America prepares to observes the 237th anniversary of that event, do you think that our government lives up to its ideals? Is it time, in the words of the Declaration of Independence, for "the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"?  Is the US government securing or preventing the  inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the inhabitants of its land?

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Kathy Kelly, of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. In early June she returned from over a month in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Several articles written by Kathy and Joshua Broiler are on the group's web page: http://vcnv.org .
Kathy says "it's what do people in Afghanistan want. There's real fear of the Taliban, but people ask why 
the U.S. invaders and their warlord clients should run the country. There are an estimated 850 children dying every day (see Save the Children). Meanwhile, we're spending $1 million per year just to deploy one 
soldier."

"Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Steven Fake, co author with Kevin Funk of "Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Steven Fake and Kevin Fink have been researching and writing about Sudan since 2006. Their book is a scathing, indictment of the constellation of government leaders, corporate media outlets, and NGOs swirling around Sudan and the myriad ways in which the West has failed Darfur. They look at the NGO culpability, not just at US foreign policy.

Celeste and Cecil will ask Steven Fake about the history of US relations with Sudan, the level of funding of humanitarian efforts in Africa, and some of the contradictions in how aid and humanitarian efforts are distributed.

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
