Interview with Walter Mosley & latest book Little Green

Join me in a delightful conversation with Walter Mosley on Thursday May 16, 2013 from 800AM-8: 30AM to discuss his latest book Little Green and the return of Easy Rollins! Walter Mosley is a New York City-based author, whose 37+ book literary career goes back to 1990′s Devil in a Blue Dress. That novel kicked off a series revolving around detective Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins — a Black resident of the Watts section of Los Angeles, whose continuing story begins in 1948, and (with the May 2013 release of his 12th story, Little Green) has progressed to 1967. Mosley also created the character of ex-convict Socrates Fortlow, the modern-day protagonist of Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned, and two other novels. Both Rawlins and Fortlow were adapted for the screen in the 1990s.

The Vanport flood and racism in Portland: sixty five years later

Sixty five years ago, the Columbia River flooded into the largest public housing project in the U-S at the time, leaving 18,500 people homeless, a large number of whom were black.  The event changed race relations in Portland forever.

On Friday May 24th, from 8 am to noon, KBOO presented a special program on the Vanport flood and racism in Portland, sixty five years later.

We featured historians and archived audio, as well as a discussion led by PSU professor and activist Walidah Imarisha asking ‘Why are there so few black people in Oregon’.
