Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - April 12, 2006

For the past 57 years, KPFA has been providing a unique outlet for voices of reason and dissent and has played a key role in preserving our ability to exercise free speech. Tonight, we celebrate KPFA's anniversary by broadcasting one of the most eloquent of such voices, that of late Professor Edward Said. We will be listening to part of the speech given by Edward Said at UC Berkeley in February 2003.

Later in the program, we will hear an interview with Jorge Jimenez and Mary Prophet, two of the local activists involved in organizing the Bay Area Students and Educators to Stop the War Conference that is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 22 at Mission High School in San Francisco. This conference is co-sponsored by KPFA Radio. For more information on this conference, you can visit

Also, on tonight's program, we will listen to the first part of an interview with legendary Blues Musician Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal comes to Voices of the Middle East and North Africa to connect the dots for us between East African, North African, Middle Eastern and other types of music that are so dear to his heart and which continue to inspire his magical creations.
