Eduardo Galeano – A Poet of Many Worlds

This week on From the Vault, we honor one of the great journalists, authors and poets of our time, Eduardo Galeano, who died on Monday April 13th, 2015. Two recordings from Pacifica Radio Archives perfectly exemplify Eduardo Galeano’s artistry with words, his compassion for humanity, and his relentless pursuit to present the unknown history of the Americas and give voice to non-traditional history-makers. We begin with a 1992 interview Eduardo Galeano gave to historian and Pacifica Radio KPFK programmer Nancy Hollander, and follow with a 1991 live audience reading by Eduardo Galeano at Los Angeles City College, in a recording titled Eduardo Galeano: A Poet of Many Worlds.
