Race & Resistance in the Trump era


Tune in to KALW Thursday at 7pm for Race & Resistance in the Trump Era, a special program recorded at this year's Bay Area Book Festival.
Moderated by The Nation's Mark Hertsgaard, the conversation featured essayist Walter Mosley, Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza, The Nation's national affairs correspondent Joan Walsh, and Steve Phillips, author of Brown is the New White.

Matt Martin was KALW’s general manager from 2006 through 2018. Under his leadership, KALW grew into one of the most productive and innovative stations in public radio. Programs launched at KALW during Matt’s tenure as GM include the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. He helped create the station’s Audio Academy, a year-long program aimed at developing new talents in public radio, and led the first broad-based strategic planning process in the station’s history.
