FM Feb 2: Revolutionary Mothering / Revolutionary Love / Proyecto Jardin

2-2-16-collageComing up this week on Feminist Magazine with hosts Lynn Harris Ballen & Felicia Montes :
FIRST, we talk to Alexis Pauline Gumbs & Fabiola Sandoval about the upcoming anthology ‘‘Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Frontlines’. Alexis is one of the editors, and Fabiola an LA-based contributor to this soon-to-be-published collection — Inspired by the legacy of radical and queer black feminists of the 1970s and ’80s, ‘Revolutionary Mothering’ places marginalized mothers of color at the center of a world of necessary transformation. The writing reminds us that mothering happens in a context of generations, a context of racial & class history, talking about how revolution, love, and mothering all connect.
THEN… we’re reminded that “Without justice there can be no love” – bell hooks. We’re joined by Jollene Levid on behalf of the AF3IRM LA Chapter – as they host Revolutionary Love: A Visionary Workshop and Women’s Marketplace – an event with with art, music, educational discussion, and a women’s marketplace on February 11. AF3IRM LA calls this gathering as they build towards the L.A. International Women’s Day mass rally, and to celebrate their love for the people!
AND … JUST ADDED! Today on Feminist Magazine on KPFK radio 90.7 FM… We’ll talk to Nancy Aragon, gardener and activist with Proyecto Jardin, a communal urban farm in Boyle Heights.. We’ll hear the latest on the possible displacement of this over decade old community garden by White Memorial Medical Center … and more on how the 40 farmers & community supporters are organizing to #SaveProyectoJardin.
TUNE IN AT 3PM to hear more, and how You can help preserve Proyecto Jardin!!
All this on Feminist Magazine this week on Tuesday at 3 on KPFK 90.7FM.
