Culture Is Our Weapon

The guest is Damian Platt, co-author with Patrick Neate, of CULTURE IS OUR WEAPON: Making Music and Changing Lives in Rio De Janeiro.

Damian will talk about his work with the Rio-based NGO AfroReggae, a group who uses music and art to keep the children of Rio’s favelas out of the pervasive drug trade. AfroReggae was forged out of the 1993 police massacre of 21 people in one of the favelas. Founded by ex-drug traffickers, AfroReggae works to take young people out of the drug/gang culture and harness the ingenuity and creativity of their communities to provide positive alternatives for young people. It shows the side of Rio beyond the tans of Ipanema and the pageantry of Carnival - the Rio you won’t find in any tourist guidebook.

"Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Alissa Hamilton is a Food and Society Policy Fellow with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. She lives in Toronto.

Close to three quarters of U.S. households buy orange juice. Its popularity crosses class, cultural, racial, and regional divides. Why do so many of us drink orange juice? How did it turn from a luxury into a staple in just a few years? More important, how is it that we don’t know the real reasons behind OJ’s popularity or understand the processes by which the juice is produced?
