The Laura Flanders Show Sat: Harry Belafonte, Mark Crispin Miller, Jeff Chang ... Sun: Sister Carol Gilbert, Barbara Meade, Betsey Housten


On The Laura Flanders Show Saturday, the line up is:

Forty years after the passage of the Voting Rights Act the fight for US democracy's not past history. We'll talk with journalist MARK CRISPIN MILLER and we'll get an update from the Keep the Vote Alive! march and rally in Atlanta from LINDA BURNHAM of the Women of Color Resource Center.
Then, music to vote by -- from 1965 to 2005. With actor and activist, HARRY BELAFONTE, Freedom Singer, MATT JONES and JEFF CHANG, author of Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation. Hear the tunes of then and now.

That's Saturday's line up. The Laura Flanders Show broadcasts Saturdays and Sundays on Air America Radio. If you don't have an Air America station in your area (and you don't have XM satellite radio), remember that you can listen online via Real Player or Windows Media Player. (And in answer to the question Cindy once asked, there's no charge to listen online.) The show airs from seven to ten p.m. eastern time Saturdays and Sundays. It's a huge favorite with the community so if you haven't yet checked out the show, please do so.

The line up for Sunday's show (from the Air America Radio home page):

Sunday: The nuclear threat-- not Iran's but ours. On the anniversary of the bombing of Japan, Laura talks to Sister Carol Gilbert. Then, Barbara Meade, co-owner of Politics and Prose in Washington DC and Betsey Housten from Bluestockings bookstore in NYC discuss this month's most controvertial books.
