Bread and Roses
program date: 
Thu, 09/11/2008

When will the pursuit of justice finally come to end after September 11--that's September 11, 1973, in Chile. 35 years ago, a coup supported by the US brought General Agusto Pinochet to power and what followed were years of state-sponsored disappearances, torture and executions. The story of the arrest and murder of Joyce Horman's husband, Charles, was told in the Costa Gavras film, Missing. In the decades since her husband's murder, Joyce Horman has worked tirelessly to bring the truth to light. She has just donated the archives of her investigation to the Benson Latin American collection at the University of Texas at Austin.

Paris hails from the San Francisco Bay Area and was catapulted onto the national hip-hop scene in 1990 with his hit single and album The Devil Made Me Do It, after earning a degree in economics from the University of California at Davis. Originally released on Tommy Boy Records, his first single from that album, "Break The Grip of Shame," was banned by MTV. Since then his uncompromising stance on political issues and biting social commentary have both aided and hindered his quest to bring solid music and messages to the masses.
