On this week's special Pledge Drive edition of Truth to Power, we bring you a delightful community conversation with members of Forward Radio’s proud community partner, the Urban Agriculture Coalition! Getting their hands dirty with your host, Justin Mog (Sustainability Now!) are Doug Lowry, Bethany Pratt, Leticia Marshall, and Isaac Fosl-Van Wyke. We chew over spring gardening, the Urban Ag Seeding Drive, vacant lot access and the Louisville Metro Land Development Code reform process, and community gardens. Learn more about the Urban Ag Coalition at http://foodinneighborhoods.org/grow Get in touch with them: finlouisville@gmail.com Connect with Leticia at Bearfruit Gardening on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt34S39mHMQZ-jBmAsqR6Cw Join Bearfruit Gardening on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/234157577442825/ The Food In Neighborhoods (FIN) Community Coalition will be hosting a Community RoundTable on Tuesday, April 13th from 5:30 – 7:00PM via Zoom. The topic will be ”How can we address the food apartheid in Louisville?" As more people awaken to the systemic problems of food insecurity, racism, economic injustice, and environmental destruction, we awaken also to the power we can build when we link our struggles and build toward common goals. FIN works to strengthen the local food system through urban agriculture, community land access, and policy advocacy. We understand our work in the context of broader projects of food, land, and racial justice. At this community roundtable, we hope to collaborate with you to distill a clear and bold vision for transforming Louisville’s food system. Please join us in envisioning strategies around food and agriculture that help build a more equitable, just and sustainable Louisville.

Remember in high school or college when you were required to take a certain number of humanities classes? Maybe you groaned or rolled your eyes. But maybe it was the spark that lit an interest in subjects that helped you think critically and creatively. It was in a high school humanities class that Carrie was introduced to and fell in love with E. M. Forster’s novel A Room With a View. For me, an introduction to art history in college opened a whole new world and made me want to travel and see the cultures portrayed in the artwork I learned about. The exposure to subjects like literature, history, philosophy, culture, and religion help us understand the world we live in. In our state, the organization that promotes the humanities is Kentucky Humanities; a non-profit that is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities in Washington, DC. It offers lots of cool programs, many of which are focused on books and bringing discussions about them to the Kentucky public at large. This nonprofit serves as the state cheerleader of Kentucky writers’ literary endeavors and one way it does this is through the Kentucky Book Festival which takes place every November. However, there are Book Festival programs that happen all year long including book bundles subscriptions, The Kentucky Reads program, and the School Days initiative that brings children’s book authors into schools to dazzle young readers and put books they can keep into their hands. All of these programs highlight Kentucky authors and put a spotlight on the rich literary talent we have within our border. This week we talk with Sara Woods, the Kentucky Book Festival director. She brought her experience working with the Western Kentucky University sponsored Southern Kentucky Book Festival to her new position and from there brainstormed some fresh ideas about how to bring books to people even when, especially during Covid, people can’t come to the books. Sara tells us how her love for her American Girl Doll as a child sparked her excitement for reading, how she is using the talents of a tattoo artist to highlight one of the books in the book bundle subscription service, and where you can get ice cream and beer on a bike trail to vastly increase the fun factor. Books Mentioned in this Episode: 1- American Doll book sets (Felicity) 2- Illustrated classics (Moby Dick, Great Expectations) 3- The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien 4- Essays by Michel de Montaigne 5- Clay's Quilt by Silas House 6- Just a Few Miles South by Ouita Michel 7- Kill All Your Darlings by David Bell 8- Perfect Black by Crystal Wilkinson 9- All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren 10- Hannah Coulter by Wendell Berry 11- Birds of Opulence by Crystal Wilkinson 12- Duncan the Story Dragon by Amanda Driscoll 13- Haggis and Tank Unleashed: Digging for Dinos by Jessica Young 14- Nat Turner's Rebellion by Shawn Pryor 15- The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo 16- The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand 17- The 10,000 Doors of January by Alix Harrow 18- Once and Future Witches by Alix Harrow 19- Bunny by Mona Awad 20- The Secret History by Donna Tartt 21- The Vine that Ate the South by J. D. Wilkes 22- A Very Punchable Face by Colin Jost 23- Bossy Pants by Tina Fey 24- Let Love Rule by Lenny Kravitz 25- Yes, Please by Amy Poehler

On this week's special Pledge Drive edition of the program, we bring you an extended conversation with Chris Glasser, the Executive Director of one of Forward Radio's proud community partners, Streets For People. Join your host, Justin Mog (Sustainability Now!), as we chew over ideas to reshape our city streets around people, not cars. We cover the COVID-induced, car-free scenic loops at our Olmsted Parks; the need for designated "slow streets" and how to fund them; the vision for a protected two-way bike lane on Norris/Douglass; how the MUTCD is broken; and how all of this resonates with the concerns expressed by the California Neighborhood Leadership Council about the city's railroading of a new California Neighborhood Plan that doesn't reflect resident's interests and concerns after a classically botched 6-year process. On Truth to Power each week, we gather Forward Radio programmers and friends to discuss the state of the world, the nation, the state, and the city! It's a community conversation like you won't hear anywhere else!

K.A. Owens interviews Shelton McElroy, a Defund Fellow, about defunding the police, no knock warrants and a visit to the White House. Recorded Thursday April 1, 2021, 11AM.
Our guest this week, Tori Murden McClure, is a Renaissance woman. She has a law degree, a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard as well as a Master of Fine Arts from Spalding University, the institution where she currently serves as President. She was the first woman and first American to ski 750 miles to the geographic South Pole. She worked as an assistant to Muhammad Ali at the Ali Center, and has served as a chaplain in Boston area hospitals. But what she is most known for is her solo journey to successfully row a boat across the Atlantic Ocean in 1999. Ten years later, she published her memoir about that experience, A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Now, a little over ten years after publication, her book and story have a new life. A musical about her experience has been created, and her boat is part of the Frazier Museum’s Cool Kentucky exhibit. The book, which we discuss with Tori in this week’s episode, has a lot to do with 2020 in a roundabout way because it is about her battle with feelings of helplessness stemming from her childhood. And who in this world hasn’t been experiencing feelings of helplessness during this global pandemic? We can all relate to wanting to do something but not being able to. Tori talks to us about why memoir is in its own way is just another type of fiction, what completely different pieces of advice she received from her writing mentors during her MFA program that shaped her book, how her desire to write a book about a hero’s journey as a woman can be tricky and hasn’t been done often, and why we didn’t see her memoir as an Oprah book club selection. If you would like to see Murden’s sailless and motorless plywood boat The Pearl, it is on exhibit at the Frazier Museum in Louisville KY. This is a permanent exhibit but several items are on short-term loan. The album Row is a concept album about Tori’s journey rowing across the Atlantic written by Dawn Landes. It can be found on Amazon music. These songs are part of the musical Row which will be available via Audible in the Spring of 2021. Tori Murden McClure’s memoir can be found at your favorite bookstore or library. Books mentioned in this episode: 1- A Pearl in the Storm by Tori Murden McClure 2- When Memory Speaks: Reflections on Autobiography by Jill Kerr Conway 3- Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl 4- Notes of a Native Son by James Baldwin 5- A Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh 6- Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson 7- Shakespeare's plays 8- Iliad and Odyssey by Homer 9- Dante's Inferno 10- Small Spaces by Katherine Arden 11- How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X.

To kick off our 4th anniversary Pledge Drive, on this week's program we bring you one of the most electrifying conversations to crackle over our airwaves this past year. We’re taking this opportunity to share with you again our favorite moment from the November 2020 Louisville Sustainability Summit: “Climate Crossroads: Exploring the intersection of Climate Change and Social Justice.” Today we bring you the Regional Panel on Building an Inclusive Sustainability Movement in Kentucky, featuring: Carla Walker, Climate Advisor, City of Cincinnati; Cassia Herron, Board Chair KFTC; and Dr. Carolyn Finney, author "Black Faces, White Spaces." Carla Walker is the Climate Advisor for the City of Cincinnati. She has a 15+ year career developing complex projects for large-scale civic engagement and public policy initiatives at the local, state, national and international levels. She has managed or consulted on 100+ advocacy or political campaigns, held Senior staff posts in three urban Mayoral Administrations, staffed State Legislators, and managed regional operations in three Presidential campaigns. In 2010, she started think BIG strategies, LLC to integrate the typical project silos and accomplish project goals for clients, connecting communications, government & community relations, organizational operations, project development, and team building. Cassia Herron is a native of Richmond, KY and has lived in Louisville for most of her adult life. She is a community development professional and public policy activist with over 15 years experience working on projects at the intersections of community and economic development, food and the built environment and has a unique perspective on these issues as they relate to West Louisville and Kentucky. She has organized farmers markets in West Louisville with Community Farm Alliance and later served as Board Chair. When she worked in the Economic Development Department for Louisville Metro Government, Cassia was instrumental in establishing the Farm-to-Table initiative. As the President of Louisville Association for Community Economics, she is leading efforts to open the Louisville Community Grocery - a community-owned grocery store in one of Louisville's downtown neighborhoods. As Board Chair of Kentuckians for The Commonwealth, she is engaged in energy reform, voter engagement and racial justice issues. Cassia is a graduate of UofL and has a Masters of Urban Planning from the University of Michigan. Carolyn Finney, PhD is a storyteller, author and a cultural geographer. The aim of her work is to develop greater cultural competency within environmental organizations and institutions, challenge media outlets on their representation of difference, and increase awareness of how privilege shapes who gets to speak to environmental issues and determine policy and action. Carolyn is grounded in both artistic and intellectual ways of knowing - she pursed an acting career for eleven years, but five years of backpacking trips through Africa and Asia, and living in Nepal changed the course of her life. Motivated by these experiences, Carolyn returned to school after a 15-year absence to complete a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. She has been a Fulbright Scholar, a Canon National Parks Science Scholar and received a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Studies. Along with public speaking, writing, consulting and teaching (at Wellesley College, UC-Berkeley & UK), she served on the U.S. National Parks Advisory Board for eight years which assists the National Park Service in engaging in relations of reciprocity with diverse communities. Her first book, Black Faces, White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors was released in 2014 (UNC Press). Truth to Power airs every Friday at 9pm, Saturday at 11am, and Sunday at 4pm on Louisville's grassroots, community radio station, Forward Radio 106.5fm WFMP and live streams at http://forwardradio.org
