A special internet-only episode of WHY? Radio: The Disappeared: Human Rights and Art

Why? Philosophical Discussions about Everyday Life

“The Disappeared: Human Rights and Art”

Guests: Sarah Cahill, Christian Correa, Father Jack Davis, and Emmanuel Jal
A panel discussion recorded at the North Dakota Museum of Art, on December 2, 2009.

Five years ago, The North Dakota Museum of Art hosted a panel on art and human rights to commemorate their exhibit The Disappeared. We thought the recording was lost forever, but we found it, cleaned it up, and have put it online.

The Disappeared is an exploration of victims of political violence in Latin America. It’s a chilling exhibit that got worldwide attention, including a review in The New York Times. The panel was an opportunity to explore the same themes with musicians and activists who know about violence first hand. My guests on the panel are pianist Sarah Cahill, Christian Correa, Father Jack Davis, and hip-hop musician and author, Emmanuel Jal.

We hope you are as pleased with our archeological discovery as we are. As always, thank you for listening to WHY? Radio.

Please donate to WHY? Radio.

WHY? Radio needs your help more than ever; we have to be self-sustaining. We have to raise our own money and pay our own bills; we get no money from the University of North Dakota. Not surprisingly, there aren¹t a lot of grants for philosophy out there and there are even fewer for public philosophy. We rely almost entirely on our listeners. So, we are asking you to please donate. Your contribution is tax deductible, and because WHY? Radio is so inexpensive to produce (every guest volunteers his or her time), your donation goes a long way. A very long way.

We would also like to offer you an incentive.

For gifts of $25 or more, donors will receive the world jazz CD Lua e Sol from Mark Weinstein (while supplies last). This is the album that contains all of the wonderful music that makes up the show¹s soundtrack.

For gifts of $100 or more, donors will receive a handful of his CDs, remarkable music from Brazil, Cuba, and some straight-ahead jazz. You can visit Mark¹s website and listen to his other music athttp://jazzfluteweinstein.com/

Donations of $250 or more will get the CD¹s and you¹ll be named on the air as an episode¹s sponsor. You¹ll be a role-model for all of our listeners.

So please visit our website to donate: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/donate.html
Because really, if you won¹t support philosophy, who will?

Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to Why? Radio.
