Love and Radio: Silver Dollar

Join us Thursday March 6th at 7:30pm for a night of audio exploration with podcast LOVE & RADIO's newest creation "Silver Dollar".  We continue our investigation of into the worlds of surveillance, race and power as seen in the visual and aural archives of PUBLIC EYE : A CIVIL RIGHTS CASE STUDY (open through March 15th). 

Silver Dollar is about Daryl Davis, who's profession is music, but understanding racial supremacy is his obsession.  Since a teen, he’s been collecting racist paraphernalia, and has probably had more interactions with Neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and other hate groups in America than any other black man.  And by ‘interactions’, we mean everything from drinks and dinner, to debate and fist-fights.  This is a story about understanding hate, and how we react to it.  The audio screening will be followed by a Q&A with Love + Radio director Nick van der Kolk.

Love + Radio is the multiple-award-winning radio program that Jad Abumrad (of Radio Lab) calls "a cosmic pollen cloud of audio awesomeness.”  

Suggested donation for the event is $5 (no one will be turned away) $4 drinks
