Joe Clement and Brad Duncan discuss the shared roots of Rock n Roll and the Civil Rights movement in the deep South and in the mid-to-late 1950s. Segregationists feared the cultural race mixing they saw when Rhythm & Blues broke out of the black community and was rebranded as Rock n Roll for a mixed audience of young people in the post-war era.

Mitchell S. Jackson on his book "Oversoul: Stories and Essays"

Portland native Mitchell S. Jackson reads from his new book Oversoul: Stories and Essays, a collection of semi-autobiographical short stories and essays. Jackson is now a professor at NYU, but his book explores growing up black in Portland. Later he speaks about his life and work with KBOO's Paul Roland. Jackson’s work examines the conflicts that arise in those who have seen their dreams beaten back, who realize the smallest of victories, and who still believe in redemption.

Why is Multnomah County's Sheriff voluntarily participating in the ICE Hold program?

This is an important day to put pressure on those elected to serve our communities to make sure they are actually doing that!

Ani and Lyn will talk with Marco Mejia, of Jobs with Justice, and Jaime Limon Guzman-- two activists from the ACT Network about Multnomah County's Sheriff Staton's participation in ICE holds.  

Over thelast three years, community leaders have met multiple times with Sheriff Staton and officials from his department to discuss policy recommendations to limit unfair, costly detentions of immigrants in local jails for deportation purposes.

After an action last Monday, December 10th, Sheriff Staton has told activists that he will meet with them on Monday the 17th, to let him know what decision he's made.
