Jan 15 on FM: Trust Women, Jenni Rivera’s feminism & “In the Red and Brown Water”

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen and Ariana Manov : Dr. Sophia Yen hopes to become the first Surgeon General to say “masturbation” without being asked to resign –AND she wants to prevent ALL teenage pregnancy! She’s here to tell us how –and to talk about the Silver Ribbon Campaign To Trust Women.

Then… Actress Diarra Kilpatrick performs live in studio from the boldly original theater piece “In the Red and Brown Water” by Tarell Alvin McCraney (at Hollywood’s Fountain Theatre).  Set in the projects of a Louisiana bayou in the “distant present”, Oya can run faster than anyone—but not fast enough to escape her destiny. Weaving West African Yoruba mysticism with urban contemporary realism, Oya makes the journey from the promise of youth to the complicated yearnings of womanhood.

And, activist & community organizer Felicia Montes brings us her take on the recent passing of Jenni Rivera – Chicana/ Mexican regional music star representing the LBC, homies, single-moms, and ‘chakalosa lokas’ from across Cali, the southwest and the Americas. We’ll talk about Jenni’s kind of feminism, what she meant to her fans & to her communities. And what the mainstream media missed in covering her. With lots of music!

All this on Tuesday at 3pm.  This is what Feminism Sounds Like!
