Radio Curious
Maria W. Stewart, as characterized by professor and scholar Sandra Kamusakiri, was a free black woman who lived in Boston, MA, from the 1820s to the early 1840s. She was the first American born woman to lecture in public on political themes and likely the first African-American to speak out in defense of women’s rights. A forerunner to Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth, she was intensely religious and regarded as outspoken and controversial during her time. For more than a century, Maria W. Stewart’s life contributions remained obscured, illustrating the double pressures of racism and sexism on the lives African-American women. I met with Mariah W. Stewart in the person of Professor Sandra Kamusukiri during the 1996 Democracy in America Chautauqua, held in Ukiah, California. Maria Stewart recommends “The Fair Sketches of Women,” by John Adams and “The Bible.” Originally Broadcast: November 27, 1996

An in depth look at the new film, in which the personal meets the political in the life of controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar - while confronting death threats and countering media misinformation about her. Time For Ilhan public defender turned director Norah Shapiro phones in. ** 'I knew if I was going to tell the truth, that there was a chance Trump would attack me. Which he did - via tweet. And I guess if there's anything that's changed about the way I view US politics - it blows me away that the founders were able to create a system of government that has withstood the people that have held these offices over the last 300 years.' Book Corner: Team Of Vipers. And, in a case of Trump's ex-confidante and author Cliff Sims, both seeming to be on the verge of suing each other over this just published White House memoir. Sims is on the line to the show to discuss his revelations, self- described as 'a story of power, palace intrigue, back stabbing, bold victories, and painful moral compromises' - occasionally with himself. ** 'Now is the time, now is your time, Millennials - Venezuela could end up being your Vietnam.' Ideology And Culture Corner: Political analyst, Press TV reporter and contributor to this show Jason Unruhe channels the cautionary past into the future. Referencing imperialism, abuse of power, weapons of mass destruction, NATO intervention, Assad, Gaddafi, Yugoslavia, and the US war machine. ** 'When Sholem Aleichem arrived in America, he came with the appellation 'The Jewish Mark Twain.' But in much of his work, there is also a darker side. He once wrote - 'This is an ugly and mean world, and only to spite it we mustn't weep. If you want to know, this is the constant source of my humor...' Radio Drama Corner: Along with the Arts Express literary birthday tribute this month - for Sholem Aleichem. Jack Shalom reads from the author's work.
