Monday, June 2, 2014: The Life and Activism of June Jordan

Kate Raphael talks with Stacy Russo, editor of the new anthology, LIFE AS ACTIVISM: June Jordan's essays in the Progressive.

From Angela Davis's Foreword:

“What is remarkable about these articles is their resonance on our contem­porary political landscape.”

“Published during the last decade of the twentieth century, these columns remind me just how much June Jordan’s formidable voice is missed today. She was a poet, but also equally a journalist, and no ordinary journalist, for her illu­minating accounts of ongoing events were always infused with her unique poetic vision.”
