This Thursday, we look at the “Colorization of America.” We kick off the hour with a report from the streets, as police violence continues to spark protests across the nation. Then we go to a conversation between Jeff Chang, author of Who We Be: the Colorization of America, and Vincent Pan, the executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action. Who We Be remixes art with protests and corporate marketing campaigns providing a cultural history of “racial progress.”
We’ll be offering Who We Be, a beautiful and insightful book, as a thank you gift for supporting KPFA.
APEX Express is a weekly magazine-style radio show featuring the voices and stories of Asians and Pacific Islanders from all corners of our community. The show is produced by a collective of media makers, djs, and activists and airs each week on KPFA 94.1FM. APEX Express is committed to building a broader social movement for justice and collective liberation for all oppressed people, including poor & working-class people, people of color, women and queer people. We support grassroots organizing and cultural work that advance these goals, and see APEX as a space for building consciousness and promoting critical discussion about these efforts.
