APEX Express Fundraiser Special

 


Tonight on Apex Express, we highlight the documentary film, Patsy Mink: Ahead of the Majority.
  
This film by Kimberlee Bassford explores the political life of Patsy Takemoto Mink, an Asian American woman, who, battling racism and sexism, redefined American politics.  Mink was the first Asian American woman and woman of color in the United States Congress.  She entered the 1972 presidential primary, making her one of the first women to seek the nation's highest office.    
As Franklin Odo, one of the film's interviewees and the Director of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program, states, "Patsy Mink offers a phenomenal political story, because she was so outside what you would expect of a woman, of a Japanese American and of a member of Congress. She was truly a force of nature."

We are also in our fall fund drive, you can donate to KPFA on line at www.kpfa.org or by calling 510-848-5732.
