Society & Culture
This episode is a discussion with Dr. Vajra Watson author, educator, youth worker and social activist. Dr. Watson talks about her new book Learning to Liberate: Community-Based Solutions to the Crises in Urban Education. Learning To Liberate presents ethnographic portraits of four community based educators in the SF Bay area. She shows us what they do, why it is effective, and lessons we can learn from them. Her book is an inspiring and motivating call to those of us who work with youth. Dr. Watson also discusses her own community educator practice with Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS).

A note on sound quality: Unfortunately, there is a great deal of breath noise and plosives (sounds like lisping) recorded in this episode. I have minimized it to the best of my technical ability. I hope you do not find it too distracting.
