Ep. 7 MLK Day: Counter Narratives

We want to celebrate the legacy of radical organizing in this region and also call into question the false narratives that pedestalize certain leaders and organizations without acknowledging the ways in which they were problematic and even counterrevolutionary.

As the call to reclaim Martin Luther King, Jr.’s radical legacy sounds throughout the Bay Area, we speak with long-time organizers John Hayakawa Torok and Sulaiman Hyatt about the less known stories of our freedom movements. These stories, it turns out, are necessary for our collective liberation.
