Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn Historical Society

128 Pierrepont Street,
Brooklyn, NY 11201 ( see map )
Brooklyn Historical Society presents a talk and book signing with Amy Goodman and her journalist brother and co-author David Goodman as they look back on twenty years of giving voice to those speaking truth to power.

In 1996, Amy Goodman began hosting Democracy Now! on Pacifica Radio, to focus on issues and movements that are often ignored by much of the media. Today Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the US, broadcasting on over 1,400 public television and radio stations around the world — with millions accessing it online at democracynow.org.

In their new book, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America, Amy, along with her journalist brother, David Goodman, and co-author Denis Moynihan, share stories of the whistleblowers, the organizers, and the protesters, among others, who have brought about extraordinary change.
