Labor Day's Radical Roots

program date: 
Mon, 09/07/2015
Joe Clement reflects on Labor Day's radical roots. All too often pitted against celebrations of International Workers Day, Labor Day was born of the same international-tending workers movement that also gave birth to May Day. To help tell this story, Joe reads from Eugene Ruyle's article on the subject for Popular Resistance. 7:01 minutes (6.43 MB)

Movie Moles: What Happened Miss Simone?

program date: 
Mon, 09/07/2015
In the second of two reviews this episode, movie moles Denise Morris and Frann Michel discuss What Happened Miss Simone?, directed by Liz Garbus, about African American pianist and singer Nina Simone.  Like Amy, the film draws on a rich archive of materials, including Simone's diaries.  The film reveals pressures of racism, patriarchy, and capitalism on its subject, as well as her prodigious talents,  her political convictions, and her suffering and perpetration of violence.
