Movies, Martial Arts and Marathon on Apex. Though known for his films and martial arts, Bruce Lee was also a philosopher and innovator. For Lee, his life in the East Bay was a formative, but little-known period. In the books Dragon and The Tiger, authors Sid Campbell and Greglon Lee explore these years in Lee's life that led to the explosion of interest in Asian martial arts and culture. Movies are also an important way to gage peoples' aspirations. Learn about this as South Asian author Tariq Ali talks about Iran and the trying conditions in the Middle East. And, find out how hope is kept alive as we offer a report-back from two Forums that addressed opposite spectrums of the world's interests. Lastly, as part of KPFA's marathon funddrive, please help Apex by pledging support during the show. If so, you could receive gifts such as the book The Dragon and the Tiger and a special CD, Saving Salinas' Libraries with speakers such as Maxine Hong-Kingston, Dolores Huerta and many more!
