She learned in adulthood that her mother had been a closeted lesbian given psychiatric treatments - including electroshock - to “cure” her. Mother and daughter developed a deep bond when both came out as lesbians in the women’s and gay liberation movements of the late 1960s and ’70s. There's much more to this touching, fascinating story in "Riding Fury Home,"&nbsp;Chana’s memoir. Marilyn Pittman hosts. &nbsp;Thursday, February 27, 2014</p> Wed, 26 Feb 2014 17:18:20 +0000 Marilyn Pittman 40242 at http://kalw.org Powerful Memoir: "Riding Fury Home" Julia Jackson: Children Are Forever http://kalw.org/post/julia-jackson-children-are-forever <p><span style="line-height: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p><p><span style="line-height: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Did you know black babies are half the cost as white babies and you don't have to wait as long?
