This summer the City of Minneapolis and partners from across the state have collectively hosted events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

A closing ceremony is scheduled for the Minneapolis Convention Center on Thursday, July 31st at 5pm. Toni Newborn is assistant director of the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights and chair of the closing ceremony. She talked with KFAI’s Xan Holston, who asked why it’s important to remember the anniversary of the passage of a piece of legislation.

July 14th The Map: To Our Responsive Universe, Where Dreams Really Do Come True

To create a totally joyous life, a life of your dreams? Some people have read book after book on the subject, and they still haven’t managed to make it happen. (Not their fault, really – the instructions just haven’t been clear enough, or easy enough to implement into daily life).

Tune in Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 7pm to hear a mixed bag of queer-a-licious theater, music & dance. A menagerie of guests from the Minnesota Fringe Festival come on Fresh Fruit to talk about their shows with LGBTQ content, creators, and/or performers. Each guest gets 5 minutes to plug their show and then it’s on to the next. It’s crazy, kooky and queer!

On this week's True Brit! our genial host Simon Husbands will be coaxing some music out of special guest Doug Collins! Doug is a singer songwriter with a new CD coming out next week, so he will be sharing music from that and from his private collection – plus some live music too! Join Simon and Doug – this Friday night at midnight!
