    Washington Post Report Links Trump’s Rhetoric to Racist and Xenophobic Bullying of Kids

    A Washington Post review of news stories since the 2016 election found more than 300 incidents of school children being harassed by students or teachers using Trump's inflammatory rhetoric. In Tennessee middle school students linked arms to imitate the president's border wall and refused to let nonwhite students pass. In Utah, two kindergartners told a Latino boy that Trump would send him back to Mexico. At least three quarters of the attacks were aimed at black, Hispanic or Muslim kids. Trump supporters were also harassed. Forum talks with one of the Post reporters about their findings.

    Poet Danez Smith is Unapologetically Queer and Black in New Book ‘Homie’

    "If there is one tool people can cull from my poems, it’s that shame is one of the best unburdenings you can do," says poet Danez Smith. A black, queer, nonbinary author and performer, Smith first captured the public's attention in 2014 with the viral video of their poem "Dear White America" while part of the Oakland-based youth performance ensemble Young Gifted and Black. Smith's newest work, "Homie," tackles themes of friendship, queerness and blackness with fierce vulnerability. We'll talk to Smith, who uses gender-neutral pronouns, about their poetry, their time in the Bay Area and freeing themselves of shame.

    Unsung Filipino-American Labor Leader Celebrated in Children’s Book

    When telling the history of labor organizing in California, we typically mention Cesar Chavez or Dolores Huerta. Less often do we talk about Larry Itliong, who led Filipinos in the Great Delano Grape Strike for minimum wage from 1965 to 1970. Itliong helped foster solidarity between Filipinos and Mexicans and later co-founded the United Farm Workers union with Chavez and Huerta. We'll talk to author Gayle Romasanta about her children's book, "Journey For Justice: The Life of Larry Itliong" and about shedding light on the often overlooked stories of Filipinos in California history.
