Well, they said it couldn’t be done, but I’m doing my own show now (with the help and cooperation of the great folks of ‘Sex and Politics’ and the folks at Brooklyn College radio station WBCR). It’s called ‘the Brooklyn Culture Jam‘ and it’s styled as a mix of politics, culture, local stories and music, all coming from the borough of Brooklyn, the center of the cultural universe now that Manhattan has priced much of its arts scene out.
Our inaugural show was tonight, and we spoke to Danette Chavis, Founder of the National Association Against Police Brutality. Ms. Chavis is a longtime advocate for people victimized by police violence, and she discussed Bill Bratton’s broken windows policing, Stop & Frisk, and the case of Ramsey Orta–the only person charged in the case of the death of Eric Garner (he filmed it). Give us a listen!
