KLCC’s Barbara Dellenback and former Oregon poet laureate Kim Stafford talk about the role of art in social activism. Stafford discusses how he uses the art of the word in many ways, including creating a manifesto titled “A hierarchy of responses to terror in the world.” Stafford discusses the role of the poet laureate, suggests ways to clarify thoughts and actions, and shares a poem.

 

  

Barbara Dellenback returned to KLCC in December 2017 after pursuing other radio gigs and fundraising for community benefit organizations. She's host of the KLCC podcast The Oregon Grapevine. You can hear her on the radio hosting Weekend Edition, Morning Edition, and All Things Considered.
