Joe Sacco: Footnotes in Gaza

Words and Pictures
program date: 
Thu, 02/11/2010

Portland artist and self-styled "war junkie" Joe Sacco has carved out a niche in the publishing world for his war reportage comics.  For twenty years Sacco has plunged into global hot spots to bring back detailed graphic stories of civilian bystanders.  His books include Safe Area Gorazde, Notes From a Defeatist, and Palestine, which won him an American Book Award and led to a Guggenheim Fellowship.  His latest book Footnotes in Gaza takes us back to the Palestinian refugee camps to reveal first-hand accounts of a massacre that was officially suppressed for fifty years.

Tune in all day Thursday for in-depth coverage on Haiti

February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.
