The LA Progressive is streaming live!! Don’t miss its weekly broadcast—devoted to progressive politics and social justice.
Tune in today, Monday, January 12th, at 3 p.m. PST right here for the next installment of “LA Progressive LIVE!” You’ll find us streaming at www.laprogressive.com—and we’ll archive the 1-hour show.
Your hosts Dick and Sharon will be talking about our freedom of the press in light of the murders at the hands of two Muslim extremists of a dozen cartoonists, affiliated staff, guards and a visitor at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Will this tragedy spawn further racial and religious hatred, ratchet up calls for further oppression, or will the world now have enough of such violence? Join us to discuss.
Joining us will be journalist Justin Chapman, who will discuss his just released book, “Saturnalia: Traveling from Cape Town to Kampala in Search of an African Utopia,” that is both a fascinating travelogue of his three-month tour through Africa, and is especially a journey of self-healing and self-discovery.
“I had no idea what cities or even countries I was going to visit, or how I’d get there,” Chapman has reported. “I figured out my trip as I went, and after a couple of weeks in Cape Town, I decided to go to Johannesburg and stayed in a hostel before heading into Zimbabwe. I mapped it out as it happened.”
Can a short, white guy from California, as Justin describes himself, kick his devils and find love in the heart of Africa? Join us to find out.
