Bob Jensen's speech on KPFT tonight

Submitted by PAAMember on November 17, 2005 - 3:00pm. ::

If you missed Bob Jensen's speech at last Friday's HPJC annual awards
dinner, or want to hear it again, or want to tell your friends about
it, don't miss "The Progressive Forum" program tonight on KPFT.
Wally James recorded the speech at the Houston Peace and Justice
Center's awards dinner, and will have it on near the beginning of his
program tonight. It will probably be on at its regular time, 7-9 pm,
although it's possible it might start slightly later due to the fund
drive. I think Wally is going to have some good thank-you gifts
available for people who donate during tonight's show, too. If you
miss the show, you'll be able to listen to it in the KPFT archives at
http://kpftx.org later.

HPJC gave Jensen their National Peacemaker Award at the dinner, at
which he was the keynote speaker. He's a Professor of Journalism at
UT-Austin. Through his teaching, guest lectures, editorial writing,
and books, Jensen has become a prominent critical analyst of American
polical policy and social practice. His most recent book is "The
Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism and White Privilege."
Other works include "Citizens of the Empire: The Struggle to Claim
Our Humanity," "Writing Dissent: Taking Radical Ideas from the
Margins to the Mainstream," and, with Gail Dines and Ann Russo,
"Pornography: The Production and Consumption of Inequality."

You can listen to The Progressive Forum tonight on KPFT (90.1 MHz in
Houston, 89.5 in Galveston, or http://kpft.org on the web for
streaming audio).

Thanks to Wally for recording Bob Jensen's speech (and many other
great speeches that he has on his show each week).

Remember, all of KPFT's talk & news programs are archived at
http://kpftx.org for 2 months, and you can listen to them on your
computer when convenient, or download them for later listening on
your iPod or other portable MP3 player. I think this is one of the
most valuable features of KPFT -- so you never have to worry about
missing an interesting show.
