We're trying to pack the house at this one so we need your help!!!! Please forward this on to any and all listservs, websites, friends, family, and communities that you are a part of. We had an incredibly successful screening of pieces of BBBW last week at "New York is New Orleans: Hip-Hop for Katrina," so we'd like the World Premiere to be even bigger!!

About BBBW:

The Beat Back Bush Workout is a captivating and satirical multimedia project that invites people to exercise their minds, bodies, and rights. It is a twelve-minute educational, informational, and motivational video that seeks to ignite the Hip-Hop Generation in their fight for social justice. Inspired by music videos and other contemporary media, the video features dance, kickboxing, yoga, jazzercise, break-dancing, hip-hop, animation, original spoken word and music. The video addresses a plethora of issues and policies including education, abortion, drug policy, globalization, the war, gay rights, civil rights, and prison issues. While challenging the state of our country, the video also challenges the state of mainstream hip-hop by sampling from rap songs and artists largely viewed as misogynistic, and rewriting them into revolutionary songs of protest performed through the voices and bodies of hip-hop generation women.

Oral History Recordings in Women's History/Studies

The award-winning Virtual Oral/Aural History Archive of California State University, Long Beach, has now made available over 700 hours of original oral history recordings in women's history at With its focus on orality, VOAHA brings to life the timbre and tone of voice, the richness of women's oral narratives, and the nuances of their spoken language. The narrators include African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, Mexicanas/Chicanas, and South East Asian and Eastern European immigrants.

The interviews cover women's activism from the early 20th-century suffrage, anarchist, labor, and socialist movements to the 1960s and 1970s women's liberation movement. The focus on women's work in the first five decades of the 20th century ranges from their labor in the cotton fields and the World War II aircraft industry to their path breaking careers in the professions and as entrepreneurs and entertainers. Regardless of the specific focus, the interviews also document women's daily lives, birth control practices (including abortions), and family and community relationships.
