It's Pledge Drive time again. If you haven't already, please donate to KPFA and Women's Magazine. Thanks!
We pay tribute to the Power of African American Women of the Civil Rights era. While we mourn the death of black bodies killed by police we remember how our foremothers also experienced police violence and stood up against the horror of racism. For fund drive we offer a historical audio package of the voices of powerful women activists of the 60s like Rosa Parks, speaking out about her arrest, Fannie Lou Hammer talking about her surviving police brutality and her pursuit for justice against her assailants, and Corretta Scott King speaking out three weeks after Dr. King's assassination; just three of the amazing voices of our foremothers available to you on a 3 CD or 9 CD MP3 collection.
