An evening with journalist & author David Barsamian


David Barsamian

KBOO is very pleased to invite you to an evening with David Barsamian, Wednesday, March 4, 7:00-9:30 pm, at the Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton street, Portland.


Admission suggested:$10-20, with no one turned away for lack of funds. All proceeds benefit KBOO.FM.


One of America's most tireless and wide-ranging investigative journalists, David Barsamian has altered the independent media landscape, both with his weekly radio show Alternative Radio -now in its 29th year- and his books with Noam Chomsky, Eqbal Ahmad, Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Richard Wolff, Arundhati Roy and Edward Said. His latest book of interviews with Noam Chomsky is Power Systems: Conversations on Global Democratic Uprisings and the New Challenges to U.S. Empire. His best-selling books with Chomsky have been translated into many languages. He lectures on world affairs, imperialism, capitalism, propaganda, the media, the economic crisis and global rebellions.


David is winner of the Media Education Award, the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, and the Cultural Freedom Fellowship from the Lannan Foundation. The Institute for Alternative Journalism named him one of its Top Ten Media Heroes. He is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center.


An evening with David Barsamian is always enlightening, entertaining and surprising. He will be on hand to answer questions and sign books after his lecture.  Come join KBOO for this exciting event!
