The Last boat from the Gaza Freedom Flotilla 2011 was turned back last Tuesday. The American vessel had been turned back days before. The Governments of The United States & Israel and their allies Turkey and Greece worked together to prevent the Flotilla from reaching Gaza. Was the Flotilla a Success? How? Portlander Erin Deramus, an activist on the American Ship, will join me Linda Olson-Osterlund for a special hour long episode of A Deeper Look this Thursday morning.

"Concrete, Steel, and Paint," a film documents what happens when men in a Pennsylvania state priso

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with Tony Heriza, Co-Director/Producer of "Concrete, Steel, and Paint," and Jane Golden, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. They discuss the film "Concrete, Steel, and Paint," which documents what happens when men in a Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing and their views on punishment, remorse, and forgiveness collide. Finding consensus is not easy - but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to surprising moments of human contact and common purpose.
