Who speaks for America's working poor?

On the next Your Call, we'll remember Joe Bageant, a self-described redneck from Virginia who loved storytelling and writing about what he called the permanent white underclass in the Heartland. He passed away on March 26th following a four-month struggle with cancer. We will rebroadcast excerpts of our interview with him about his new book, Rainbow Pie: A Redneck Memoir. The late Howard Zinn said Joe Bageant evokes working class America like no one else. Join us at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. Who was Joe Bageant and how should he be remembered? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.

Ken Smith, friend and web manager for the late, Joe Bageant, 1946-2011. Joe Bageant was author of Deer Hunting with Jesus and Rainbow Pie: A Redneck's Memoir.
