KPFA's Hard Knock Radio

Weyland Southon is the MAN! Thanks to the hip-hop connection via Jeff Chang whom we met at Intersections V in Amherst just a few weeks ago we were invited to share a piece of our show on the radio on KPFA 94.1 Berkeley. Check out the link as Weyland our hapa-host of Samoan-Chinese ancestery and new found Lao-food critic of Hard Knocked Radio quiz Channapha Khamvongsa of Legacies of War and Leilani and I of Refugee Nation about our programs this weekend. It was great to talk, share and promote the upcoming events. Listen to it online and click the link under IN THE NEWS section.

This is hell week for us in the lingo of theater production and we have our full team steaming ahead with Marie-Reine at the helm of marketing and promoting, Jen Cleary tech-savvy magician with the confines of La Pena Cultural Center performance space, Paul Berrera at the MacBook Pro video editing station and Alex Torres director at large to finalize this outcome of Refugee Nation. These creative people have come together to make the upcoming NoCal debut of our show a success. Leilani and I forge forward with fine-tuning the piece to make it even more dramatic, more humorous and more alive. We even have a special local young guest artist in Junnida Siribounthong, teen-traditional Lao dancer extra-ordinaire whom will collaborate with us in the final scene of our show.

Across the Bay in San Francisco we have our partner organization Legacies of War prepping for a national steering committee meeting this weekend. Many of our friends and colleagues we've made through this amazing organization will be arriving on Thursday from all different parts of the nation: Seattle, Boston, Pennsylvania, DC to attend the performance as well as discuss the future of Legacies of War.
