This episode of the Old Mole is Hosted by Denise Morris
Dreams of Liberation. This morning on The Old Mole we rebroadcast CS Soong interviewing historian Robin D.G Kelley on Against the Grain. Against the Grain is a weekly radio show hosted by Sasha Lilly and C.S Soong on KPFA Pacifica Radio in Berkley, California. It’s a program of ideas, in-depth analysis, and commentary on political, economic, social, and cultural issues important to radical thinking and activism.
A twentieth-anniversary edition of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination, by the UCLA-based historian Robin D. G. Kelley, was released this year 2023. Robin Kelley spoke about his book with CS Soong on ATG in 2003 shortly after Freedom Dreams was published. Kelley later joined the program in 2011 to talk about Aimé Césaire, one of the thinkers featured in Freedom Dreams. A segment of that conversation closes out todays rebroadcast. Robin D.G Kelley and the legacy of Aime Cesaire
