Listen Up Northwest: Spiritual headdress - the Hijab and the Sikh Turban

RTM note: We present an encore presentation of a program originally aired in 2008. We're taking a break to get ready for our next season of shows. We'll be back with new shows at the end of January.

Listen Up! Northwest is a collaboratively produced radio magazine featuring stories of communities in action throughout the Northwest. Each broadcast highlights the work of skilled community radio producers and artists from our region, including Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

In this edition of Listen Up! Northwest, we hear the perspectives and experiences of two Portland women who wear the Sikh turban and one who wears the hijab. (Linda Olson Osterlund, KBOO Portland, OR)

Music by Northwest artist DJ B-Girl.
