Race and Recession: An Interview with Seth Wessler

program date: 
Wed, 05/20/2009

The current recession is not an equal opportunity crisis. People of color are experiencing job loss, foreclosures and lack of healthcare at alarmingly higher rates than white Americans. These disparities are not a coincidence but rather the result of structural barriers that have been taking a toll on people of color long before the subprime meltdown.

Jenka Soderberg interviews a newly-arrived immigrant from Gaza on his life in the Gaza Strip, and the difficulty of getting out of the besieged Occupied Territory.  The Gaza Strip is one of the most crowded places on earth, where 1.5 million Palestinians - most of whom are 2nd and 3rd generation refugees from what is now Israel - live crowded together in extremely harsh and difficult conditions.  The borders have been sealed by Israeli and Egyptian authorities since June 2007, leading many Gazans to call the Strip "the largest open-air prison on earth."

Race and Obama's First 100 Days

program date: 
Wed, 05/06/2009

Last week, President Obama reached his first 100 days in office, triggering a media flurry of speculation about how well he's doing. Communities of color - already hurting before the lastest round of troubles - have been measuring up the new president as well. Is President Obama pushing to create justice for all or is he too bogged down in the legacy of his predecessor? What should we be doing to push the president down the path of racial equity?

May Day: Is it still relevant 123 years later?

program date: 
Wed, 04/29/2009

May 1, 2009 marks the 123rd anniversary of a rally for the eight-hour day in Chicago's Haymarket Square that ended with a police riot that left over a dozen dead. The political trial and hanging of four anarchists that followed sparked protests around the world and the designation by the Second International of May 1 as International Workers' Day, more commonly known as May Day. But does commemoration of a 19th century incident have relevance for people in the 21st century? Does demonstrating on May Day have meaning for you?
