    This week’s show This week was a week that shows the stalk difference between Presidents and ideology. One ideology revels in the constant drumbeat to assert superiority and war to feed what Eisenhower called the military industrial complex. The other ideology asserts that ALL humans are deserving and that war is always a last resort. One ideology believes that collectively everyone does better while the other believes that if a few succeed massively, their crumbs will be enough to sustain the masses.
    These ideologies are not expressed in these rather obscene terms generally. They are however reflected in the budgets passed by our government, in the wars we choose to fight, and in the access to opportunity we choose to give our citizens.
    I want to explore these issues today. Most importantly I want us to empower ourselves be a part of the solution already underway. While it may seem a  daunting and lengthy task we all are the solution.

    Cultural activist Mic Crenshaw will talk with us about the Afrikan Hip Hop Caravan and the role of Hip Hop as a global form of expression and counterforce to all forms of oppression.


    A chicago-born poet and emcee, Michael (Mic) Crenshaw fell in love with music at a young age while living in Minneapolis. His teenage years were challenging as he actively confronted white supremacist gangs that were a growing part of the hard-core music scene. He eventually chose to escape the violence and moved to Portland, where he quickly became one of the most respected artists in the Northwest, and his community efforts have had both local and international impact. In addition to his highly-acclaimed work in spoken work and hip hop, Mic founded GlobalFam, a non-profit project to create and maintain a computer center for disadvantaged youth in Burundi, Central Africa. Over 400 people have received free training, and it is now expanding, generating revenue and creating jobs. Mic also partnered with Education Without Borders (EWOB), which supports education, music and art initiatives in Portland and beyond and serves as an umbrella for the local Books For Prisoners chapter and GlobalFam itself. GlobalFam has blossomed into a music label, production, promotion, artist management, and education company providing mainstream entertainment that supports Social Justice Activism.
