Wikileaks, The Politics of Black Hair and Ancient Craftwork from the Mountains of India by WBEZ's Worldview

On today's show:

  • U.S. media have an uncomfortable relationship with Wikileaks, reporting on its releases, while at times castigating its founder's methods.
  • Four Ugandans have created a pop-up hair salon and art installation to remind women how beautiful and artistic their black hair truly is.
  • In the mountains of India's Manipur state, women artisans craft handmade black clay pottery, a traditional occupation passed down over generations. But today globalization and mass production threaten their artistry. We sit down with global activist Manvee Vaid, who is working with the women through the non-profit Terra Klay.
