Call in to speak with the host
Episode #22 promises to be inspiring - two artists whose work engages and informs us. Whether discussing the Black Civil Rights Movement or Palestinian Rights, these artists help us see what the FIGHT is about and they move us to continue FIGHTing for what's good and just. JOHN GREYSON, filmmaker, professor and trouble maker will be on the show to discuss the upcoming retrospective of his work that covers thirty years of feature films and shorts and lots of activism along the way. The retrospective, entitled “Impatient,” runs from March 30 to April 5 and celebrates the release of a new DVD box set and book about Greyson’s pioneering work.
