This is the FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of April 9, 2008 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul music, news and commentary.
This week's commentary was on some new updates on the U.S. Presidential Election process and doing an introduction for this week's interview guest, Lisa F. Jackson, the director of the HBO Documentary, "The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo" (premieres April 8, 2008 with numerous showings afterward).
This documentary focuses on the war zone conflicts of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), why the war is and has been occuring throughout the years (natural resource control, affects of colonialism carryovers, etc.) and the effects it has on the women sexually abused in that region by soliders (Congolese, UN, etc.), the soliders themselves and others trying to help them as best they can to assist these women in these circumstances.
It's an extremely good (yet very sad and harsh) documentary with a bit of hope up in there I think folks should definitely check out.
The website for the "The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo" is: http://www.thegreatestsilence.org and feel free to check out the trailer and review from BlackRadioIsBack.com here.
There is also a new Direct EFX segment on this week's FuseBox Radio Broadcast - we were not able to retrieve a Black Agenda Report segment this week by the time of recording.
Feel free to check out some recent episodes of the syndiated FuseBox Radio Broadcast here on BlackRadioIsBack.com - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.
