Adding Insult To Injury, Trump Offends Haitians On Earthquake Anniversary, Milos Stehlik On French Artists's #MeToo Protest Letter And Review Of 'The Phantom Thread', And Weekend Passport: Artists Shed Light On Immigration And Racial Justice
On today’s show:
- To discuss President Trump's recent disparaging comments about immigration and reactions from Chicago’s Haitian community, we’re joined by Monique Germain, president of the Midwest Association of Haitian-American Women and a member of the Illinois Chapter of Haitian-American Nurses.
- WBEZ film contributor Milos Stehlik of Facets Chicago discusses an open letter against the #MeToo movement from 100 French female performers and scholars, including film legend Catherine Denueve and writer Catherine Millet, and reviews the fashioned-themed historical drama, The Phantom Thread, which could be Daniel Day-Lewis’ final acting performance.
- We speak with a group of Chicago artists working across mediums to theorize how justice can be had for Chicago’s marginalized communities.
