    in Art

    We speak this morning to Latanya d. Tigner who has been with Dimensions since 1986, studying and performing traditional West and South African dance, modern, contemporary, jazz, Haitian, Cuban, and Congolese dance. She has traveled to Cuba, Guinea, Brazil, Jordan, Germany, and throughout the U.S. Latanya was selected as one of three emerging artists for the first annual Black Choreographers Here and Now Festival in 2005. This past summer she participated in Urban Bush Women’s acclaimed Summer Leadership Institute in New Orleans, where she worked with dancers and other social activists to serve the New Orleans community. She also did a residency with Shaka Zulu to study the traditions of mask dance in New Orleans. Latanya is the artistic diector and choreographer for Dimensions‘ youth ensemble, Dimensions Extensions Performing Ensemble (DEPE). She joins us to talk about the 20th Anniversary performance of Rites of Passage, Sunday, Dec. 5, 3 p.m. in Oakland. Visit www.dimensionsdance.org

    We close with two archival interviews, the first with director, Haifa Al Mansour. Her film Wadjda is the first film by a Saudi woman (2013). We close with an interview with the former director of the Museum of the African Diaspora, Grace C. Stanislaus. Our conversation with Ms. Stanilaus is about the exhibit Desert Jewels.

    Chef Elliott's Entertaining Solutions

    in Self Help

    Chef Elliott is honored to share his technical skills and culinary wisdom concerning the Alzheimer’s Disease with his dear friend, Bern Nadette Stanis aka Thelma Evans.


    Bernadette Stanis has come a long way from playing the feisty teenage daughter, Thelma, on the hit series Good Times.  We all remember how she and JJ battled it out to see who would get into the one bathroom shared by the family of five, first.  Although the Evans family did not have a lot of money and lived in the projects, they still had love and integrity. 


    Born Bernadette Stanislaus and raised in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York in the projects, Bernadette’s story was ironically similar to Thelma’s character on Good Times.  She is one of five children and her mother and father worked hard to ensure that they all received a good education.  Bernadette says they were taught that education and determination to be someone in life is key to being successful.  As a young girl, Bernadette was exposed to the arts, mainly music and dance, enabling her to enrol in Julliard’s School of the Arts.  Her talent was evident and while in her sophomore year she was selected for the part of Thelma on Good Times.   She describes it as an “incredible” experience.   “Being the rookie, I was watching them.   I learned everything just by watching them and how professional they were.

    "Giants, Cannibals and Monsters:" A Visit With Kathy Strain

    in Science

    FOR EONS THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OF BIGFOOT. IF WE GO BACK IN TIME WE FIND NEARLY EVERY TRIBE IN EXISTANCE HAD A NAME AND A STORY FOR BIGFOOT. THAT WAS BEFORE THE TELEPHONE FOLKS. THAT WAS BEFORE THE PONY EXPRESS. THAT WAS WAYYYY BEFORE THE WHITE MAN. WE HAD TRIBES ALL OVER WHAT WE NOW CALL AMERICA THAT HAD NO CONTACT…YET ALL WERE EXPERIENCING AND RECORDING THE SAME THING…A BIG HAIRY CREATURE. SOME TRIBES HAD NAMES AND STORIES THAT WERE GOOD AND REFERRED TO BIGFOOT AS BIG BROTHER AND OTHER TRIBES TOLD STORIES OF FEMALE BIGFOOT THAT SNATCHED UP THE NATIVES AND ATE EM. GOOD OR BAD ALL TRIBES HAD STORIES. SOME TRIBES EVEN RECOUNTED BIGFOOT AS PART OF THEIR CREATION STORY. VERY INTERESTINGLY, WE HAVE PAINTED ROCK ON THE TULE RIVER INDIAN RESERVATION IN THE SIERRAS. NATIVE AMERICAN PAINTINGS ON THE ROCK DATE BACK TO 500 A.D. AND THEY INCLUDE DEPICTIONS OF A COYOTE, A LIZARD, A BEAR, BEAVER, HUMANS, AN EAGLE, AND EVEN A CENTIPEDE. ALL OF US WOULD AGREE THOSE THINGS EXIST, RIGHT?? WELL, ABOVE THE COYOTE, LIZARD, BEAVER, BEAR, ETC. MUCH LARGER IN SCALE ARE PAINTED A MALE, FEMALE AND A CHILD SIZE BIGFOOT. WHY WOULD THE TULE INDIANS PAINT ALL MANNER OF THINGS THAT WE ALL AGREE EXIST, THEN 3 LARGE BIGFOOT THAT MANY BELIEVE DON’T EXIST.  HERE TONIGHT TO DISCUSS THIS WITH US AND HELP US TO UNDERSTAND IS KATHY STRAIN, THE HERITAGE RESOURCE AND TRIBAL RELATIONS PROGRAMS MANAGER FOR THE STANISLAUS NATIONAL FOREST IN SONORA, CALIFORNIA. SHE HAS AN M.A. IN ANTHROPOLOGY AND IS VERY WELL KNOWN FOR HER RESEARCH ON NATIVE CULTURES AND THEIR TRADITIONAL BIGFOOT BELIEFS. THIS IS HOW SHE CAME TO WRITE HER BOOK: “GIANTS, CANNIBALS AND MONSTERS: BIGFOOT IN NATIVE CULTURES.” SHE IS ALSO CONSIDERED THE FOREMOST EXPERT ON THE HAIRY MAN PICTOGRAPHS ON PAINTED ROCK, WHICH SHE WILL DISCUSS AT LENGTH WITH US HERE TONIGHT.  **REBROADCAST**

    THE BACK STORY with Mayor Carmen Sabatino

    in News

    Welcome…to The Back Story. Here’s an overview of who we are, what we’re planning to do, and how we intend to do it:


    The Back Story is an online journal of fact (original reporting) and opinion. It is specifically intended to be an alternative to the local newspaper, where certain news items are under-reported (or not reported at all), where not all points of view make it into print, and where current economic conditions have rendered investigative reporting all but extinct.


    The emphasis will be on the Stanislaus County area: Things — political, economic, social, cultural — that affect those of us who live here.


    We believe that there are untapped talents in our local communities — people who know and understand what is happening and how things are working…and are able to cogently express this understanding and knowledge.


    We’re not suggesting that we’re going to supplant the daily newspaper, but we ARE stating that there is a considerable gap between what happens in and around our communities and what is reported, and we propose to fill that gap. There are individuals, groups and concepts that are considered ‘untouchable,’ and we think that is very unhealthy and downright dangerous to the concept of representative democracy.


    Don’t be afraid to contact us and share your thoughts, even if it’s just to give us a piece of your mind.


    And again…welcome to The Back Story.
