May 16 - Freedom Is A Constant Struggle's guest will be the legendary human rights activist, Yuri Kochiyama, who lived in Harlem for 40 years and worked with Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik el Shabazz). Although no official holiday honors Malcolm's birthday, May 19 has become a traditional day of celebration in the Black and progressive communities. Yuri shares his birthday and will reach 87 this May 19 -- also the birthday of Uncle Ho (Ho Chi Minh). A tireless freedom fighter, political prisoner advocate, and author of Passing It On -- A Memoir, Yuri has also had a biography written about her life by Diane C. Fujino titled: Heartbeat of Struggle: The Revolutionary Life of Yuri Kochiyama.
Freedom Is A Constant Struggle is a weekly TV talk show that airs on SF Live, Cable 76 in San Francisco and can be streamed online at www.accessf.org -- 7:30 - 7:52 p.m. (PST). There are no archives so if you want to catch it you'll need to go online or tune in at the exact time. I'm working on getting it uploaded to the net so all the videos will be available at any time. I.e., tech help is coming :).
