KBOO's News and Public Affairs Day - Fall 2015
Call or click to #SupportKBOO during our Fall Membership Drive!
Tune in all day for this special program featuring locally-recorded talks, panels and interviews with people working to address and confront the ugly history of racism and injustice in this country, and pushing for an end to white supremacy IN OUR LIFETIMES.

At 1:30 we’ll feature a never-before-broadcast talk by the late Manning Marable on "How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America" (and offer copies of the new edition of his book as a thank-you gift)
At 2:30, we’ll feature Ta’Nehisi Coates on white supremacy and being black in America.
And at 3, it’s radical black scholar Cornel West speaking at the Unitarian Universalist National Assembly in Portland this past July.
This is the last day of KBOO's membership drive, and we are behind! We need to raise $25,000 more to reach our $95,000 goal.
