Tonight we’ll be hearing the San Francisco Solidarity Fast for Family, which is calling for national immigration reform. Then we go to Minnesota where a female professor of color was reprimanded by her school administration for teaching a lesson on structural racism. Then we go back to the Bay where local Muslims are hosting a peace convention this Sunday. We’ll round out the hour with plans for protests in Kashmir to mark International Human Rights Day.

Tonight’s show starts with a song in tribute to Nelson Mandela who passed away today, “Black President” by Fassie.

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.
