This week on Crossing The Line: Host Christopher Brown speaks with Glen Ford of the Blackagendareport.com about the ever-growing complicity of Black lawmakers with regards to the Israel/Palestine issue.

In the second segment, she is one of the best young comedians in the country but many people have still not heard of Maysoon Zayid, a Palestinian-American woman, who has risen through the ranks of comedy clubs in New York and toured the country and world with her provocative style of comedy. Brown speaks with Zayid about why she started in comedy and the role it plays in changing the face of the conflict in Palestine.

Crossing the Line’s host, Christopher Brown, is an independent journalist currently living in San Francisco. Brown’s South African roots and desire for social change are the reason for his strong solidarity with the Palestinian people. In 1990 Brown was arrested in South Africa where he was detained and tortured for nearly two years by the South African secret police. Brown also lived and worked in the Old City of Hebron in the occupied West Bank.
