Truthout calls Sarah Jaffe's new book, Necessary Trouble: Americans In Revolt, "one of the most essential books of the year." John Shuck, host of the new KBOO program, Beloved Community, talks with Jaffe about her description of a new activism that has arisen since the crash of 2008.
She writes about the anger and frustration that led to the Tea Party, the Occupy Movement, Occupy Foreclosure, Student Debt Resistance, OURWalmart, Black Lives Matter, and more. She discusses what links these movements together, the people behind them, their strategies, and announces a call for all of us to make some necessary trouble for the sake of our nation and each other.
She will generously donate several copies to listeners who make pledges to KBOO during the show.
The Beloved Community is a show for activists with interviews and resources we need to create the Beloved Community.
