Your Call: Making music under occupation

On the June 19th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundable. This week, we’ll have a conversation with veteran journalist Sandy Tolan about his new book, "Children of the Stone: The Power of Music in a Hard Land.”

He tells the story of Ramzi Aburedwan and his journey from stone thrower during the first Intifada to music student to music teacher, transforming the lives of thousands of Palestinian children living under the Israeli military occupation in the West Bank. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Matt Martin, and you.

Sandy Tolan, journalist, documentary radio producer, and associate professor at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC
