0:08 – Fund Drive Special: The Long Shadow

Of all the divisions in America, none is as insidious and destructive as racism. In this powerful documentary, The Long Shadow the filmmakers, both privileged daughters of the South, who were haunted by their families slave owning pasts, passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories of how America—guided by the South’s powerful political influence—steadily, deliberately and at times secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture and economy. Film by Francis Causey, now yours for a pledge of $100 to KPFA.

0:34 – Fund Drive Special: When Banana Ruled 

Bananas are everywhere: Americans eat nearly 10 billion of them per year, consuming more pounds of bananas than apples and oranges combined. When Banana Ruled (2018 Icarus Films) tells the story of the men who made bananas the most ubiquitous fruit in the world, through a multinational empire that dominated production and sales, overthrew governments, and created a business model still largely used by today’s tech giants. Now yous for a pledge of $100 to KPFA.
