Your Call: What can we learn from the life of the pioneering black journalist Ethel Payne?

On the February 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with James McGrath Morris about his new book Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, the First Lady of the Black Press. She was a pioneering journalist and activist, so why has there been so little written about her life? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

City Visions: Red Diapers, Brown Berets, and Green for All: Growing Up on the Picket Line


With the past weeks marking the Free Speech Movement’s 50th Reunion & Celebration, we want to know what’s become of their kids?—the red diaper babies, and families of black panthers, queers, feminists, and brown berets? Host David Onek and guests engage in some intergenerational dialogue on who’s on the picket line or possibly in the boardroom.
