Alejandro Muguia on Arizona & Latin America. Malcolm X on Islam, Non-violence

Show description for Sunday 5/20/2012 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This week, on the 5 o'clock hour, we are joined by one of the great writers of our times, a transformational figure in the development American literature over the last 40 years, Alejandro Murguia.
Also, at 4 o'clock, Malcolm X (May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965), in an excerpt from his last recorded speech. 

“People who live in California deny the past,” asserts Alejandro MurguĂ­a. In a state where “what matters is keeping up with the current trends, fads, or latest computer gizmo,” no one has “the time, energy, or desire to reflect on what happened last week, much less what happened ten years ago, or a hundred.” From this oblivion of memory, he continues, comes a false sense of history . . .
