Program #ROYA-ZINH001. Recorded in Santa Fe, NM on September 18, 2002.
This extraordinary event, recorded in Santa Fe right after Roy's "Globalization & Terrorism" lecture, brings together for the first time, America's great radical historian with one of India's and the world's most brilliant writers and social critics. Zinn interviews Roy on a variety of topics ranging from her battle with the Supreme Court of India which accused her of "corrupting public morality," to the rise of Hindu-based fascism. Roy turns her penetrating gaze on the U.S. and warns that, "Thanks to the 'free press', Americans don't know what is happening around the world." She says, "People are going to have to blow holes through the corporate media." Roy extols the virtue of literature as "the opposite of the nuclear bomb." Her unvarnished honesty, sense of humor and political acuity combined with poetic gifts of expression make Roy a special voice we all need to hear.
