Today we will be speaking with Robert H. King (International Committee to Free the Angola 3) about Albert Woodfox's case. He was in court earlier this week in New Orleans and there is pending good news on the case. After over 35 years in prison, 31-plus in solitary confinement, Albert might be a free man in less than a month. We will also talk about Troy Davis, who has a pending appeal to the federal Supreme Court. In the second portion of the program we will speak to the Lathan Hodge, producer of the latest film on the rap group, Public Enemy. This feature film documents the bands 20th anniversary tour and gives rare behind the scenes interviews and perspectives on a group which continues to change the way art is used as a vehicle for social change--a.k.a. revolution. The film will screen closing night, 6-8:15 p.m. at the 7th Annual Oakland International Film Festival. All screenings are at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland.
