Prospects for Immigration Reform in 2014 | Radio Times | WHYY

Prospects for Immigration Reform in 2014 February 3, 2014 Guests: Michael Matza and Peter Spiro In last week’s State of the Union address, President Obama exhorted lawmakers to fix the country’s broken immigration system. The House Republicans recently released a set of core principles on immigration, focusing on “dreamers” and the ways that undocumented immigrants can live in the country legally. States have forged ahead independently and have implemented their own initiatives to address the 11 million undocumented immigrants who are living within their borders. Will 2014 be the year in which the United States can successfully tackle immigration reform? In this hour of Radio Times, we are joined by MICHAEL MATZA, The Philadelphia Inquirer staff writer on immigration, and PETER SPIRO, the Charles Weiner professor in international law at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. They’ll discuss state and federal efforts for reform, the debate over whether legalization should include a path to citizenship, and what’s happening in the Philadelphia region.

Pete Seeger in 2000: Can Music Move a Mountain? | Radio Open Source with Christopher Lydon

Pete Seeger performing on February 13, 1944, at the United Federal Labor Canteen, with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt in attendance. In 2000, Chris interviewed the legendary folk singer Pete Seeger, who died today at 94. Here is Pete Seeger on “The Connection.” As Chris noted in introducing him, Pete Seeger wrote and popularized folk music for over 60 years. He always used his voice and his banjo for a purpose. He never sang a song that didn’t have meaning. His convictions about social justice were deep, and his performances changed lives. There’s little doubt the FBI had a huge fat file on him back in Washington, and for his liberal politics he was the target of mob attacks too. He sung anti-American songs in Moscow, and was at one time banned from television. He continually inspired other people to action to stop the Vietnam war, to fight racial inequality, and to save the world.   Leave a Reply Cancel reply http://www.radioopensource.org/pete-seeger-can-music-move-mountain/

The World According To Pete Seeger: A Remembrance

Musical icon and activist Pete Seeger died Monday at age 94. We listen back to our 2003 interview with the American legend.

Social activist, songwriter and champion of American folk music Pete Seeger died yesterday at 94.  He went in his lifetime from blacklisted champion of the working man to American legend.  He wrote or revived many of the biggest songs in American folk:  ”If I Had a Hammer,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “Turn, Turn, Turn” – and the civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome.”  Ten years ago, we talked with Pete Seeger.  His flame was burning bright.  This hour On Point:  Pete Seeger has passed on.  We listen back to Pete Seeger.

Rob Rosenthal, sociology professor at Wesleyan University. He and his son Sam Rosenthal worked with Pete Seeger on the book “Pete Seeger: In His Own Words.”

From Tom’s Reading List

New York Times: Pete Seeger, Songwriter and Champion of Folk Music, Dies at 94 – “In his hearty tenor, Mr. Seeger, a beanpole of a man who most often played 12-string guitar or five-string banjo, sang topical songs and children’s songs, humorous tunes and earnest anthems, always encouraging listeners to join in. His agenda paralleled the concerns of the American left: He sang for the labor movement in the 1940s and 1950s, for civil rights marches and anti-Vietnam War rallies in the 1960s, and for environmental and antiwar causes in the 1970s and beyond. ‘We Shall Overcome,’ which Mr. Seeger adapted from old spirituals, became a civil rights anthem.”

Amiri Baraka: Ennobled by Coltrane | Radio Open Source with Christopher Lydon

Amiri Baraka‘s death prompts me to repost a conversation we had about the music of John Coltrane, which inspired Baraka and ennobled the ambitions of his Black Arts movement. “Trane was our flag,” Baraka remembered back in 2007. “We could feel what he was doing. We heard our own search and travail in the opening of ‘Giant Steps.’” http://www.radioopensource.org/amiri-baraka-ennobled-coltrane/

America’s Cultural Exports Now

How the world sees the United States. American cultural exports now, from Miley Cyrus to “The Hunger Games.”

Guests

Martha Bayles, humanities professor at Boston College. Author of “Through a Screen Darkly: Popular Culture, Public Diplomacy and America’s Image Abroad.”

From Tom’s Reading List

The Washington Post: Now Showing: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Americans — “Today, as we witness the decline of America’s reputation around the world, we’re paying far more attention to Franklin’s first stratagem than to his second. Indeed, despite a mounting stack of reports recommending drastic changes in the organization and funding of public diplomacy, very little of substance has been done. And most Americans, including many who make it their business to analyze public diplomacy, seem unmindful of the negative impression that America has recently been making on the rest of humanity — via our popular culture.”

ThinkProgress: From Angry Birds To Shark Energy Drink, Five Cultural Exports That Are Big In Myanmar — “Lots of folks in Myanmar wear t-shirts in English–my favorite, spotted in Bogyoke Aung San Market, was ‘We Love Fixed Gear Bikes’ –but among the most frequent are shirts for metal bands, particularly Metallica and Led Zepplin. I’m told, though, that the most popular metal band in Myanmar is Iron Cross (not the hardcore band from the Washington, DC area, but a local iteration) that’s popular in part because of its role playing benefits for Cyclone Nargis recovery.”

The Hollywood Reporter: Soul-Searching in China Over Weak Movie Sales Abroad — “While China’s domestic box office in 2012 was a hefty $2.8 billion, overseas earnings were just 1.1 billion yuan ($180 million), down nearly 50 percent on the $330 million clocked up in 2011. ’The dissemination of Chinese films overseas in 2012 saw few highlights, and it’s worrisome,’ said Huang Huilin, director of the AICCC, to Chinese media outlet Global Times.”
