Patricia Kullberg hosts this episode of the Old Mole, which includes the following segments:

The Jazz Great You Never Heard Of: Patricia Kullberg takes a look back at a famous Black entertainer whose career was ruined and her legacy pretty much erased from history after she stood up to the House Un-American Committee. Patricia reads from an essay about piano prodigy and jazz musician Hazel Scott, entitled She was Once the Biggest Star in Jazz. Here’s why You’ve Never Heard of Her. It was written by Lorissa Rinehart and published Feb 22 2023 in the online journal Narratively.

The Long Shadow: Sasha Lilly plays audio segments from the film The Long Shadow by Frances Causey. The history of slavery in the United States casts a pall over our present. The film illustrates how and why in a compelling and personal work, that traces four centuries of racial oppression in the United States. You can read more about the film or purchase a DVD at thelongshadowfilm.com. This segment originally aired on September 21, 2022 and can be heard at https://kpfa.org/episode/against-the-grain-september-21-2022/#playlist. Against the Grain is a weekly radio show hosted by Sasha Lilly and C.S Soong on KPFA Pacifica Radio in Berkley, California. It’s a program of ideas, in-depth analysis, and commentary on political, economic, social, and cultural issues important to radical thinking and activism.
