Call in to speak with the host

My co-host Mike Palecek and I (Chuck Gregory) welcome poet/publisher Michael Annis and writer Albert Russo.

  • Michael Annis returns with the second of a three-part series of interviews discussing Cost of Freedom: The Anthology of Peace & Activism. Having introduced the project last month, he'll focus more on reading excerpts today, selected from the more than 100 contributors to the book.
  • Albert Russo will be discussing his 2009 book The Black Ancestor, which depicts a young (mostly) white girl growing up in the Belgian Congo in the 1950s. Leodine discovers that her ancestry includes someone of another race; she maintains the facade of being white while wrestling with her identity and observing the unequal treatment of those around her, It's a profoundly moving book that I enjoyed immensely and I look forward to discussing it with Albert.

We'll have some great new bits and as always The News from Mount Liberty.
