JoAnn Hardesty Interview

program: 
Between Us
program date: 
Fri, 01/23/2015
Depending on who you talk to, longtime Portland activist JoAnn Hardesty's installation as president of the Portland NAACP is either a blessing or a nightmare.  This local civil rights icon's assumption to the office was compared by one post to the impact of an incoming artillery shell.  Don Merrill talks with Ms. Hardesty about how she's focused on helping the organization renew its tarnished image by cleaning house, setting new standards and following the first rule of getting yourself out of a hole; stop digging.

IPR Report on Police Targeting of Hip Hop Shows Released

Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 12/18/2014
The Independent Police Review Commission of Portland (IPR) has released the findings of its report on the alleged targeting of hip hop shows for code violations and police presence. 
The Commission said that there is an appearance of discrimination, but stopped short of accusing the city of actually discriminating against hip hop performers and venues.
One of the artists interviewed for the investigation was Glenn Waco, a rapper from Saint Johns, who has also been active in the recent protests in Portland against police brutality and the grand jury decision in Ferguson Missouri and New York City.
KBOO's Sam Bouman spoke to Glenn Waco this afternoon about the IPR’s report. 9:38 minutes (8.82 MB)
