Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! Returns to Valley
Adapted from an Odyssey Bookshop press release:
On Tuesday, April 25th, at 7:30PM, Democracy Now! Host Amy Goodman will bring her The Enemy Is Not the Enemy Tour to Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley. She'll be talking about her new book, Democracy Now! Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America, which is a celebration of her acclaimed television and radio news program, as well as the extraordinary movements and heroes---whistleblowers, organizers, protesters---who have moved our democracy forward.
In 1996, Amy Goodman began hosting Democracy Now! on Pacifica Radio in order to focus on issues and movements too often ignored by corporate media. Today, Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the United States and acts as an underground railroad of information, bringing stories from the grassroots to a global audience. Ms. Goodman's new book looks back over the past two decades of her show and goes to where the silence is, bringing out voices rising up to demand justice.
Ms. Goodman's talk will take place inside Gamble Auditorium, which is located at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum. The event is being cosponsored by the Mount Holyoke College Division of Student Life.
Democracy Now! can be seen on GCTV Cable Channel 15 Monday through Friday at 8AM and 10PM.
