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.
