Robert Greenwald’s Brave New Films/Foundation has a new project entitled “Meet the Bloggers“. It’s an online program wherein they interview interesting and important figures within the Blogosphere. This Friday, August 22nd is a show featuring Michael Moore. Also on the show will be David Sirota whom I adore, Cheryl Contee who is the Jill from Jack and Jill Politics and associate editor Liliana Segura of AlterNet.org fame.
To check out their past shows, click here. I think this show will be a good one and Moore is scheduled to be on their next two shows as his plate is always quite full of important issues. From their website, in case your not familiar with this program:
Meet the Bloggers is a live online video show created by Brave New Foundation which is broadcast online every Friday focusing on unconventional political opinion and analysis. Affiliate blogs include The Huffington Post, Think Progress, Alternet, Jack & Jill Politics and Of América. When not live, shows will be made available on-demand on meetthebloggers.org, as well as iTunes, and RSS Feeds. In addition to its web distribution, Meet The Bloggers will be televised on FreeSpeechTV and Link TV.
Greenwald and the folks at Brave New Foundation always educate and inform, we the people. They do this based only on donations. Their goals: Championing social justice issues by using media to inspire, empower, motivate and teach civic participation that makes a difference.~And I believe they do make a difference. Check out the Foundation and the show ok?
We can never stop learning or participating, and the BNF gives us the information and tools to speak truth to power.
Their activism and how it affected America. Two great broads who are also feminists. I marched w/Huerta for migrant workers rights back in the day. Ms Huerta is a resident of my..cough..fair city. Raitt has given much of her time to playing gratis at progressive events, not to mention she plays some awesome slide guitar.
This is the second in the series produced by The Nation magazine and Brave New Films.
Hope some will take the time to watch it. Tell me if you do.
It’s called: This Brave Nation. The trailer below gives clips of the major participants. From an email I received this morning:
The initial series comprises five episodes featuring elaborately-produced conversations between historic progressive figures discussing the issues and movements that have inspired and informed their lives and work. Each conversation will be produced as both a short viral video as well as a 30-minute mini-documentary. Participants include Pete Seeger, Tom Hayden, Dolores Huerta, Naomi Klein, Bonnie Raitt, Van Jones, Carl Pope, Majora Carter, Ave Lowery and Anthony Romero, who all share their ideas, lessons and experiences so as to inform, enlighten and inspire a new generation.I am very familiar with Huerta, Hayden and Seeger. These individuals were my hero’s during th 70’s when I was getting beaten by the police for protesting the Vietnam war. Many times I was lucky to hear them speak live at gatherings, or walk with us as we demonstrated for migrant workers rights, an end to the Vietnam War or civil rights injustices that we all knew were just fucking wrong.
