Jenka Soderberg interviews Dhoruba bin Wahad, who is speaking from a hotel in Jordan after being detained and then denied entry into Palestine by Israeli authorities.  bin Wahad is a former political prisoner in the US who was charged in 1971 with the murder of two police officers, but was vindicated nineteen years later when a judge ruled that the FBI had fabricated evidence in order to frame bin Wahad of a crime he didn't commit.

As an African-American, on his way to a conference on political prisoners convened by the Palestinian Authority in the city of Jericho, bin Wahad feels that he was racially profiled, along with his travelling companion Naji Mujahid - the only two African Americans on a busload of white tourists.

Indigenous Resistance Day

On October 12th, KBOO commemorates Indigenous Resistance Day (known to some people as 'Columbus Day') from 8 - 11 am, with talks by John Trudell and other renowned native activists.

John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and activist whose international following reflects the universal language of his words, work and message. Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. In February of 1979, a fire of unknown origin killed Trudell’s wife, three children and mother-in-law. It was through this horrific tragedy that Trudell began to find his voice as an artist and poet, writing, in his words, “to stay connected to this reality.”

Outside In Youth Project: Violence Against Sex Workers

program date: 
Fri, 01/14/2011

This week KBOO and Outside In worked together on a youth media project about sexual health.

Violence Against Sex Workers
William Madden, Rogelio Guangelista, Eric Garcia

Violence against sex-workers happens daily and often goes unreported and unaddressed. Due to the nature of the profession, the growing population of sex-workers in Portland is forced to live outside the
everyday awareness of most residents. Because a blind eye is often turned towards this population it is difficult to provide care for survivors of violence and to prevent future attacks. This segment
highlights the Sex-Worker Outreach Coalition (SWOC) and Portland’s Bad
Date Line.

The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History

program date: 
Fri, 10/08/2010

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with historian Jill Lepore about her new book, "The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History."

Jill Lepore, Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer, offers a wry and bemused look at American history according to the far right, from the "rant heard round the world," which launched the Tea Party, to the Texas School Board's adoption of a social-studies curriculum that teaches that the United States was established as a Christian nation. The Whites of Their Eyes reveals that the far right has embraced a narrative about America's founding that is not only a fable but is also, finally, a variety of fundamentalism--anti-intellectual, antihistorical, and dangerously antipluralist.

Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper '41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at the New Yorker. Her books include New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery, and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-Century Manhattan, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; and The Name of War: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity, winner of the Bancroft Prize.

Fri, 09/10/2010

Moderator: Rebecca Nay.

Speaking in support of the changes: Ani Haines

Speaking in opposition to the changes: Daniel Flessas

Production note about this audio from the uploader Kathleen Stephenson: I did not have a recorded CD of this program, so I compiled the audio for this program from the KBOO air check, which is collected in segments. This audio was originally in four segments, which I strung together without editing. The program has a slight break of a second or two of missing audio between the segments. At each of those points you might notice a slight disconnect in what the speaker is saying because a second or two of audio was not captured by our automated air check.
