One of the reasons the Egyptian protests were nonviolent was the inspiration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the ways they learned about Dr. King was from a comic book published many years ago by the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) and translated recently by the American Islamic Congress (AIC). AIC in Cairo was getting requests for the comic before the protests "spread" from Tunisia.
Richard Deats knew the Kings and has been a long-time struggler for Civil Rights. We'll talk about the role of arts and culture in social change in general and this comic book specifically.I learned about the comic when Joel Landy sent me to this web site
but the Atlanta Journal-Constitution also has an article about it.
and so does the FOR web site
And you can read the comic.
Missed a show? Recent ones are available for podcast. Go to the Audio Archives Page. Listen at your convenience! Some archived shows are temporary archives and not all of them show up (not my decision, sometimes it's just a computer error), so it's worth listening live. And you can call in to live shows!
Sure, this show might be on when many of you are away from a radio, but there is a way to tape radio using a vcr by simply connecting the input of your vcr to the output of your stereo. There is a more detailed description of this here.
