Each year 11 Batswana students are given the chance to come to a private American or Swiss high school for their senior  year. These schools range from Deerfield Academy in Boston to Catlin Gabel in Portland. With no  family and no friends, these 18 year olds are thrust into a new country, a city and a new school. My name is Monkgogi Otlhogile and I have been an international student at Catlin Gabel for the past 9 months.  My biggest worry as my year at Catlin came to a close is that no one will have documented the diverse experiences we had at our various schools.

Roosevelt Rough Riders Oral History Project

program: 
The Underground
program date: 
Wed, 06/02/2010

Solomon Barr, host of the program, introduced us to the Oral History Projects. Students in this class did interviews with Portlanders, and then edited the interviews, wrote and recorded the scripts, and put the show together. Briana interviewed Lisa Loving, Dorian interviewed Apricot Irving, Erin interviewed Elodie Massa Allen, and Willie interviewed Yesenia Gutierrez. We also have audio from another Roosevelt Program: Deep Roots. This is a class where students write lyrics and partner with local musicians to put music to those lyrics. There is also a strong Civil Rights component to the program. The class took a trip to Georgia and Alabama to learn more about the Civil Rights Struggle, and the relationship of the struggle with song.

Coffee, Tea and VOE: A talk with Coffee Party PDX's Kristy Alberty and Common Cause Oregon's Nate Gulley

The Tea Party has captured the imagination of America's media industry if not the American people, lending it clout that far surpasses its numbers. Tea Party pressure has sent nervous Republican incumbents like Senator John McCain even more to the right. The Tea Party, however, remains a movement remains at heart a movement of negation: no taxes, no immigrants, no federal government. With their "Don't Tread on Me" flags and Obama-Hitler anologies, Tea Party activists have helped accelerate the decline of civil political discourse.
