Revisiting Harvest of Empire & The Hard Road of Hope

Almost a decade ago, Democracy Now!’s Juan Gonzalez published his path breaking book, Harvest of Empire. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll update it on how US imperialism continues to uproot people, forcing migration and how that has impacted the Latino vote. Then, we’ll talk with activist, poet, model and musician, Eleanor Goldfield, about her award-winning new documentary film, The Hard Road of Hope about West Virginia miners and their ongoing struggle with greedy bosses. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
