Good evening to all listening to this broadcast and welcome to full circle. this is your cultural affairs radio magazine program.
Your host is Ron Thompson and tonight on montage, we talk with two community-minded individuals about the way things are shaping up in some of the flatland neighborhoods. Both men are activists and concerned with the direction and force of the ill-wind blowing throughout the community. We talk first to Dr.Ninana Kweku about his new book, “White Out”, then, we speak with Coach Ben Tapscott about the quiet and often unnoticed effects of gentrification presently happening in Oakland and it’s effects on the Oakland Unified Public Schools.

On tonight’s episode of Full Circle we feature the documentary film She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry… She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern woman’s movement from 1966 to 1971.. She’s beautiful takes us from the founding of now (national organization of women), with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millet to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!).  Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution..
