2pm: Sue Supriano

I’m a newcomer to Portland as I just moved here about 2 months ago.  I’m honored that Albert Kaufman has asked me to speak about myself and my work as part of introducing myself to the Sacred Circle Dance Group and Our Community University.

A few words about my past and present–  Though I spent my “growing up years” in a rural area in the midwest, I’ve traveled a lot of the world and moved to Berkeley, CA as soon as I graduated from the University of Chicago in 1963.  I jumped right into the Civil Rights Movement and have continued as an activist for peace and justice ever since.  I lived in Berkeley and Oakland until fairly recently when I just spent 4 years in Eugene, OR..  For the last 30 years I have been involved in grassroots community radio (mostly the Pacifica radio station of KPFA as well as having my own independent website with podcasts of my audio interviews, for the last 8 years or so.   I have hundreds of interviews covering a wide variety of subjects nationally and internationally.  I will be happy to share more with you about my full and interesting life and work and we can talk about the importance of community radio of which you have a good example of here with KBOO Radio.
