Conversations With "Democracy Now!" Host Amy Goodman and Guitarist Yovianna García
Amy Goodman’s radio, TV, and Web program Democracy Now! has a wide following among people who think the mainstream media doesn’t let us hear enough voices from those who protest against powerful interests. This week, she visits the Mark Twain House and Museum to discuss her new book The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance and Hope.
This hour, we preview that event, with a conversation about the state of the news media today. We also listen back to a conversation with a Hartford-based guitarist who celebrates the music of her home country, Puerto Rico, while also exploring the classical repertoire.
Amy Goodman, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance and Hope. Monday, July 21, 7:00 pm at the Mark Twain House, followed by a book sale and signing. Presented in partnership with Heartbeat Ensemble, and sponsored by The Hartford. Tickets: $20.00/$15.00 for Twain House members. Call (860) 280-3130 or click here.
