The #Idavox Report: The Baldies & Portland Tom

Racists beware! This week, on the Idavox Report, we are going to be talking about The Baldies. The Baldies are an antiracist group out of Minneapolis that formed in the 1980s. They laid the groundwork for today’s Anti Racist Action Network (ARA) as well as the modern North American antifascist movement. Last Monday, the documentary The Baldies premiered on PBS. The documentary tells the story of a brave group of skinheads that started as a street team and grew into a powerful antiracist and antifascist network.

Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Brian Powers, and Christian Perez will all be there! Our special guest this week is a Baldie named Portland Tom who starred in the documentary. He’s going to be talking to us about the production.
