August 12: Art & Politics Do Mix

Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima

Cecile Pineda, author of Devil's Tango: How I Learned the Fukushima Step-by-Step and Love Queen of the Amazon, talks about Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima, and what we must do to combat the nuclear threat and restore democracy.

"United We Stand Up"

Then comics Dhaya Lakshminarayanan and Shazia Mirza put a hilarious spin on Indian and Pakistani Independence Day, doing comedy for their home crowds and what their Indian and Pakistani families have in common (aren't you married yet?).  We'll have tickets to give away for their upcoming shows, "United We Stand Up."
