We’ve heard the news, but we want to know what really happened.  That’s what Reveal is all about: finding out what’s going on behind the scenes, hidden from public view.

KHSU premieres the program Friday, August 4th at 7 p.m. Please listen and tell us what you think

Hosted by Al Letson and produced by The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. Reveal presents original work from CIR's team along with various partners.

Joan Trumpauer Mulholland grew up in Virginia in the 1950s and witnessed the injustice of segregation firsthand. As a teenager, she joined the Civil Rights Movement, attending demonstrations and sit-ins. Because of her passionate belief in the cause, she was involved in several important and historically significant events. 


 In her new book “The Tolerance Trap: How God, Genes and Good Intentions are Sabotaging Gay Equality,” Walters analyzes the journey toward “full citizenship” for gay people with equal parts hope and cynicism. Her message, that while society and government are making exciting, incremental steps toward real progress, “we’re not ‘there’ yet.”

 Set in North Carolina during the turbulent Civil Rights Era, The Ada Decades is a lesbian feminist historical novel spanning 70 years with 11 interconnected stories about the life of Ada Jane Shook. Author Paula Martinac calls her new book a historical novel-in-stories which chronicles the life of a school librarian who encounters segregation, the paradox of religion and her true love, Camillia Lively, during the Pre-Stonewall south.

Rabia O'Loren joined Jennifer Bell to discuss her delicious baked goods and fundraising efforts for social justice causes.

Dr. Rossbacher highlights Clara Bingham's book, "Witness to the Revolution: Radicals, Resisters, Vets, Hippies and the Year America Lost Its Mind and Found Its Soul" and the author's first-person reflection of the period between August 1969 and September 1970. Bingham creates a musical playlist for each chapter to reflect the time period and the activism of that era.
