Women, Action & The Media 2006

I spent most of Saturday driving to and from the Stata Center @ MIT in Cambridge to present on a panel with Professor Angie Colette Beatty (Progressive Women's Caucus: The Voice of Women of the Hip Hop Generation) at WAM 2006. Filmmaker Rachel Ramist, originally slated to be on the panel, was unable to join us due to illness.

Jessica and Samhita of were there live blogging the workshop, as they were there covering the entire conference and presenting a panel on blogging.

I also ran into Julianne Escobedo Shepherd there and Samiya Bashir, and Farai Chideya presented one of the keynotes.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the entire weekend of events, but I at least brought back a podcast of Farai's keynote and one of my and Angie's panel. Farai's came out crystal clear, but the one of Angie and myself cuts in and out making some of it inaudible.
