No Advisories - program content screened and verified.
Osder on “Let the Fire Burn,” a film on the Philadelphia Police war on MOVE, a radical Black Nationalist organization. In 1985, cops bombed a MOVE house, murdering 11 and burning 61 homes in a Black neighborhood. Jose Montoya, one of the fiercest advocates of the language of the Chicano people, including of the "Pachuco" youth, died on September 25, 2013. In memory of a giant among poets and the father of Chicano poetry for many, we listen to an interview from The Michael Slate Show in 2007.
