Last night I had the privilege to play a song on “Beautiful Struggle” on KPFK here in Los Angeles. The theme of the evening was education and the cutbacks we’re facing in California. For more info on the March 4th Strike, go to: http://defendcapubliceducation.wordpress.com/
Co-host, Michael Datcher, had prompted me that the show would be on education issues. And just a few days earlier I’d performed with Anne Feeney at an activist retirement community on the campus of UCBerkeley. One of the women after the show told me how my song, “Jackson, MS,” captured issues that aren’t being taught in schools much these days. So I pulled that one out for the show.
