In Our Voices May 30, 2008

This week's edition of “In Our Voices” will be a phone interview with three women in China about how the recent earthquake affected their lives. Host NKenge Touré (longtime Sophie's Diva) will also interview Andrea Thompson, a Sophie’s Parlor Diva who has recently returned to the United States from China where she lived for a year. (Including programming some shows from there!)

The program will air live on Friday May 30 from 11 AM to 12 Noon. FYI, In Our Voices first aired in October 1988. This October the program will celebrate 20 years on WPFW's airwaves!

"In Our Voices" is a public affairs program focusing on issues from a woman's perspective. With the concept that everything is a woman's issue. This show is a platform for the voices of women.
