Paola_and_sarah_sophie_photo_by_guy_furrow_small As national organizers for The Women’s March and leaders of The Resistance Revival Chorus, artist activists Paola Mendoza and Sarah Sophie Flicker see their purpose as connecting fellow members of The Resistance to the moments of joy and transcendence that come with being a part of history in the making. If there was ever a time when we need to consistently keep our souls replenished for the fight against injustice, it would be now. Hear how Paola Mendoza and Sarah Sophie Flicker use the power of art and culture in activism, and what they learned in documenting The Women’s March for the newly released book, "Together We Rise" in the latest episode of Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller.

The Song of Songs

From WQXR | 58:29

"I am sick with love." These five words say so much. Love is like a sickness and it affects the entire human race.

Playing
The Song of Songs
From
WQXR

Wqxr_logo_nofreq_small

This line comes from the Hebrew Bible as part of a collection of poems known as "the Song of Songs." And they are words that still speak to us today. The Song of Songs confounds and tantalizes the faithful. It seduces composers, inspiring works by Monteverdi, Bach and contemporary composer Nico Muhly. In fact, there are dozens of musical settings, each dancing between earthly pleasures and heavenly aspirations.

Stage and screen star Jessica Hecht ("Fiddler on the Roof," "Breaking Bad," Dan in Real Life," "Sideways") hosts "The Bible’s Great Romance: The Song of Songs," a one-hour special of this sensuous verse married with choral music.

Keeping It Halal

From Guy Rathbun | Part of the IdeaSphere: A Platform for Today's Voices series | 29:00

John_o_brien_small

Keeping It Halal is the title of sociologist John O’Brien’s book. O’Brien provides a uniquely personal look at the social worlds of a group of teenage boys. Muslim boys. That does creates a barrier for them because practicing Muslims don’t date. They avoid vulgar popular culture. And they never miss their prayers.

Even so, it won’t surprise anyone that in the three-and-a-half years O’Brien spent with this group, he discovered they were just like any other teenager. 

Many Americans unfamiliar with Islam or Muslims see young men like these as potential ISIS recruits. But, militant Islamism nor Islamophobia is not the main concern of these boys.

O’Brien is assistant professor of sociology at New York University, Abu Dhabi.  The full title of his work is, Keeping It Halal: The Everyday Lives of Muslim American Teenage Boys.
