Full Circle01-29-2021; Surviving Covid, Making Moves from Past to Present and Into 2021

Welcome to Full Circle, your Cultural Affairs radio magazine produced by members and Graduates of the First Voice Apprenticeship Program. On tonight’s show we”ll hear from three graduate apprentices about what’s going on. How things happen in our life and some plans for making change in 2021. Also we’ll get an update from Jehan Hakim of Yemeni Alliance Committee on some of the first moves of the Biden Harris administration and she’ll give us information on a live screening of the documentary film Hunger Ward, filmed entirely in Yemen  over a two month period in a Yemeni hospital. And later we’ll hear how a small Oakland restaurant is surviving during this pandemic while places all around are closing up. All that and more tonight on Full Circle
