February 1 on FM: “Homefulness”/Decolonizers’ Guide/”Forgetting the Alamo”

Hosted by Ariana Manov & Celina Alvarez w/ Denise Zepeda

We have the “Decolonizers’ Guide to a Humble Revolution” and wide-ranging visions for “homefulness” with “Tiny”, aka Lisa Gray-Garcia, who’s a poverty scholar, welfareQUEEN, revolutionary journalist, Po’poet, daughter of Dee, and mama of Tiburcio. “Tiny” is the founder of POOR — a grassroots, poor-and indigenous people-led media justice and social justice organization, rooted in the truth of interdependence that is ever-present beneath/around/through the cracks of the lies of capitalism and other systems of domination. And she’s joined by Jessica Hoffmann, the co-editor/co-publisher of the feminist magazine make/shift and a member of the POOR Magazine Solidarity Family.

AND…..Professor Emma Perez brings us a mid-nineteenth century novel of inter-racial love and revenge in her book “Forgetting the Alamo or Blood Memory”. It’s the story of a displaced Latina lesbian in 1836, Texas. Her-story can teach us a lot about how a colonial past still haunts our nation’s imagination and shapes our current political realities. Emma has published essays in history and feminist theory, including “The Decolonial Imaginary: Writing Chicanas into History”.

Wednesday night at 7 — This is what feminism sounds like!
