Area Voices: Gangs

Nov 8, 2017

 "All human beings have an intrinsic desire to be accepted, to know it's ok to be me and someone's got my back...if the existing choices for having that, for finding that, feel like they don't fit, then people look elsewhere..."

Anton Treuer stopped by the KBXE studio recently and spoke candidly about a variety of topics, one of which was gangs on northern Minnesota reservations.  Gangs can be appealing in terms of meeting that essential human need to belong and feel protected.  Click on the link for the full conversation.

   This past Friday was the First Friday of the month.  Around here that means we take the time to check in with people around the listening area to find out about the First Friday arts events as well as the exhibits that will be on display for the month and the unique art experiences available in the coming month.

Susan Kedzie is a visual artist, a jeweler, a scientist and a teacher.  She's passionate about making the world a better place and that mentality flows into all of her work.  Her first children's book, A Thousand Purring Cats, is a story about ordering a collection of cats via a cat catalog.   It's also a book about emotional healing and getting through the rough patches in life.

The Verse Like Water poetry series has brought nationally recognized American poets to the Chalberg Theater stage on the Central Lakes College Campus in Brainerd for the past six years.
