Tonight’s program focuses on the struggle for multicultural education with excerpts from “Precious Knowledge”, a documentary film that documents the resistance in Arizona to the shutting down of a successful school program; Mexican American studies –or MAS as it was known as.
We will offer listeners who donate to KPFA a thank you gift of a DVD copy of this important and beautifully crafted documentary “Precious Knowledge”.
 We will also feature a live conversation with veteran photo journalist, Lou Dematteis, just back from the Amazon in Ecuador.  We will be discussing his book, “ Crude Reflections.” Lou Dematteiss’ photos show not only the beauty of the land and the people of the rainforest, but the also of the devastating effect on the land and the people of oil extractions by Texaco and Chevron. We will also learn of his latest findings on this last trip and the status of the restitution campaigns against the oil corporations.

Art of the week: Photo: Indigenous Latin American women resist!

  • Todays program features the resistance and fight-back to anti-immigrant and anti -education policies. We highlight:
    Voices of Resistance: The voices of the marchers and protesters at the Oakland CA. May Day March for Dignity and Justice 2012. 
    Precious Knowledge: We offer this amazing and beautiful documentary film on DVD as a thank you gift for donating to KPFA. You will hear excerpts from this excitng and meticulously produced soundtrack.  Casting aside the inflammatory rhetoric and national headlines of the anti-ethnic-studies instigators, Precious Knowledge provides a clear-eyed portrait of students, teachers and their community struggling to deal with the nation’s most unnerving campus witch hunt in recent memory. Tracing the political roots of the legislative ban — and the program’s own mandate and success to alleviate the long-time achievement gaps among Latino students — Precious Knowledge‘s riveting pacing and compelling portraits will astonish, infuriate and inspire viewers.
    Listen and enjoy!
    We look forward to receiving your support online. It’s never too late! <www.KPFA.org>
