Remaking the Exceptional Podcast on 90.5 FM KSJS: Episode 5 “Trees, Solidarity, and Struggle”

Loading Events

July 24 @ 1:30 pm

Tune in to SJSU’s radio station, 90.5 FM KSJS, on Wednesdays at 1:30pm PT to hear the Tea Project’s podcast “Remaking the Exceptional.” Each episode brings together activists, artists, poets, and torture survivors to investigate connections between policing and incarceration in Chicago and the human rights violations at the US military prison in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The Tea Project suggests that sitting, sipping, and reflecting over a cup of tea with others can create the space for conversations on difficult and at times painful subjects, but also can create opportunities to envision a new set of social relations. See San José Museum of Art webpage here.

This broadcast is a partnership between San Jose State University’s 90.5FM KSJS and San José Museum of Art.

The first broadcast premiered on June 26, International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, and runs through July 31. 

Listen on 90.5 FM or via TuneIn.
