On Tonight’s Apex Express!

We’ll start out with Asha Kowtal—an Indian organizer that is raising the voice of Dalit women across India and around the world. Dalit, meaning broken people, are on the bottom of India’s caste system and face brutal discrimination. Asha Kowtal will be speaking at UC Berkeley on April 19.

Then, we’ll be in conversation with   Shailja Patel, poet, playwright and author of Migritude, a book, which weaves together family history, colonization and love. Migritude is the portrait of a woman in the boot print of Empire. Shailja Patel will be performing at Kaya Press’ 20th anniversary party at City Lights in San Francisco on April 17th.
