Howard Zinn Book Fair, Dalit Women Fight, and the Millet Project

Tonight, we talk with Karen Ishizuka, author of Serve the People, about her panel at the upcoming Howard Zinn Book Fair. Then we spotlight #DalitWomenFight, a hashtag that represents a feisty group of Dalit women activists who were on a tour of North America to raise awareness and visibility on deep-seated casteism and caste-based violence that women in Indian society continue to face. We wrap up tonight’s show with a fun discussion on the Millet Project with local Berkeley-based scientist and researcher Amrita Hazra.
