Rockameem Bell, local drummer and community activist, will host the program this evening, talking about some of the recent events relating to how people in the U.S. are getting along. He’ll have some good music to play that will provide thinking space, and he asks all of us listeners (our family!) to bring our thinking caps.

Monday, June 10 — Pledge Drive Wk 2 — Mourning Dove and Folk You

Tuesday, 4 June 2013 | Access Hour

Pledge Drive Wk 2 – Mourning Dove presents a program featuring her music and an interview style/live music hour. She’s active in the vegan movement. You can hear some of her songs at http://www.youtube.com/mourningdovesongs. The program will include moderator Marina and Mourning Dove on vocals and acoustic guitar and her uke player. They call themselves ”Folk You.”   “Eating animals cannot be reduced to simply a matter of personal ethics any more than can the refusal to allow people of color to enter one’s privately owned establishment. We must recognize the systemic nature of eating animals. We must appreciate that, just as feminists who challenge patriarchy, for instance, are not simply ‘imposing their personal views’ on society, those who challenge carnism are not simply ‘imposing their personal choices’ on others.” Melanie Joy, PhD http://www.onegreenplanet.org/lifestyle/carnism-why-eating-animals-is-a-social-justice-issue/ www.simplyvegan.net more »
